Bedroom in hip DC neighborhood

House - Private room · 10th St, Washington, DC 20010, United States

The Space

This well-located brick rowhouse is on a quiet residential street one block away from the start of the 11th Street Columbia Heights restaurant and bar corridor and is close walking distance to both the Columbia Heights Metro stop as well as the Saturday Farmers´ Market and the Super Giant grocery store. You will have full access to the kitchen and refrigerator as well as the back yard table and grill. We have coffee available for you to make in our french press, but we don't serve breakfast (unless you get lucky).

Channel your inner hipster as you stroll through the neighborhood, quaffing locally brewed beer, brunching on organic grain-fed duck eggs and dining on outdoor terraces, attended expertly by tribal-tattooed serving staff. When night falls, why leave the neighborhood, when you can choose from Meridian Pint, Maple, the Kangaroo Boxing Club, Red Rocks Pizza, Room 11, El Chucho taquería and The Wonderland Ballroom. If you feel inspired, take a 5-minute walk to The Looking Glass, DC Reynold´s or Chez Billy´s or consider a 10-minute walk to the Red Derby rooftop or Ziba´s.

Want to go farther? Walk a few blocks to the nearest Capital Bike Share station to check out a bike and roll on down to nearby Adams Morgan, U Street or DuPont Circle. Soon, you will be able to start or end the day at the new 24-hour Tryst/The Diner venue, a block from our doorstep. Not convinced?

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • It was really nice to meet John and his roommates! My boyfriend and I stayed there for a full month and we had a really great time in DC. The house is very well located and cosy, nearby 2 metro stations. The common areas (living room, laundry, kitchen) are nice and our bedroom was good enough. Columbia Heighs is a fun neighborhood, full of great bars and restaurants. I would definitely recommend this place! I had so great moments there that I am already missing everything! Thanks, John!

  • My husband and I stayed for 4 nights. The house was charming and comfortable. We stayed in one of the rooms in the house and shared the bathroom. We did not see much of John and his roommates as we were out of the house most of the time, but they were very welcoming. John gave us an informative brief tour of the neighborhood and some of its businesses on our arrival day, which we found very helpful.

  • While I didn't get to see much of John while there, he was a great host and provided everything we needed. The house is in a good location with some decent local bars/restaurants nearby, and an easy walk to either the metro or bike rental stations, from which you can cycle to the centre in about 20 mins. In addition, the couple living with him were really friendly, and as John was out of town, he let us have his room which was lovely and spacious. All in all, a great AirBnB experience.

  • It's a cozy bedroom and the location is great. It's a six to seven minutes walk to the nearest metro station. Definitely recommend this place!

  • John, his wife and their roommates were all very nice and welcoming. Their place was very clean and simple. They recommended some restaurants for us and even lent us their room heater and hairdryer after my husband and I had toured the city in the rain. Their place was also in walking distance of trains, multiple restaurants and a shopping complex, which was really convenient. We highly recommend staying there.

    March 2013
  • John had a great location and place to stay as I was in D.C. over a day in route back to Dubai. He communicated with me far in advance and left details to make my stay smooth and easy.

    March 2013
  • Our stay was just what we hoped for: comfortable, friendly hosts, easy to get to, perfect neighborhood with great amenities: nearby 24 hour nice new coffee shop,Coupe, great nearby restaurants KBC (Kangaroo Boxing Club), and others. John's home was relaxed with places to chill, dine, cook. Our room had a comfortable bed, lots of room to unpack and put clothes (we were there for 5 days). We highly recommend it!

    March 2013
  • I totally recommend staying at John's. The townhome is as nice as in pics, the bed is super comfortable and most importantly, John and his roommates are great hosts, super friendly. It was a great introduction to DC and Columbia Heights, giving me tips about the city and the neighborhood. Great experience.
