I have been renting my apartment for eight years and at this time I've decided to rent to travelers that will enjoy the amazing location and space that it offers as well as the wonderful and hip surroundings.
The historic & beautifully renovated Tivoli Theatre, the house of GALA Hispanic Theatre with year round live performances including a hot flamenco festival in the fall, as well as the DC USA Shopping Center and all the restaurants and bars and coffee houses are only 3-5 blocks from the house (5-10 minute walking distance).
This "trendy" neighborhood, nicknamed "baby New York", with the wonderful 11th & 14th Streets row of restaurants, bars, shops, and coffee shops, is filled with gorgeous Victorian row houses, mostly antique, including mine and is close to a lovely park to relax and walking meditate, if you like. The Meridian Hill park (8 minute walk) offers architectural beauty above and beyond the landscaped gardens -- every Sunday, there's a drum circle where enthusiasts gather and jam and dance, celebrating life and creating an atmosphere of peace. The park offers beautiful views of the city as well as the historical statues such as that of Jean d'Arc and Dante.
Less than a 5-mintue walk to the Metro you have easy access to Reagan National Airport, University of Maryland, China Town, Convention Center, E Street Cinemas, Shakespeare Theatre, Warner Theatre, The Smithsonian Institutes, The Mall, The White House, The Library of Congress, The Capitol, and every site that you would desire to visit!
Direct buses to Catholic University, Washington Hospital Center, Children National Medical Center (10-15 minute ride).
Close walking distance to other amazing neighborhoods of the U Street, Logan Circle, Dupont Circle, and Adams Morgan.
Please provide details about yourselves, the purpose of your trip, and include picture(s). I'd like to know a little about you too :)

Roya was a fantastic host. She was flexible with our check in due to a family emergency. The space was clean and comfortable. We even had OJ and some great muffins waiting for us when we arrived. I would recommend staying with her!
Review of Roya as a host 5/5
Review of her apartment 4/5
Roya was wonderfully helpful, kind and responsive. She lives in the building, which I was concerned meant that she'd be overly involved with our stay, but she actually was great about being quickly responsive to needs but not being smothering. She looked up travel information for us and bought us breakfast rolls. She also left food from other tenants in the kitchen.
Kitchen was well appointed and very comfortable, beds were comfortable, apartment was spacious, all appliances we used worked great. Coffee and coffee pot provided. Our only minor issue with the apartment was that there is very little sound insulation between the apartment above and the rooms within the apartment. Because there was a large group of 5 of us waking up early, and a big group of people above us, who were up late, we ended up not getting a lot of sleep. Future tenants traveling with a large group should consider bringing earplugs to help with the noise and parents with very young children may have issues keeping them asleep if they want to watch television. On the last night we stayed the people above us had checked out and we ended up all getting up at the same time, on that night it was quiet aside from usual big city street noise. So the neighborhood itself and outside noise isn't that bad.
All of this being said, given how great Roya is and how comfortable and well appointed the apartment is I would still enthusiastically support staying here to future tenants.
Roya is a communicative and understanding host. The place is the best airbnb place I have stayed. Great location, spacious, and clean.
Roya is a great host and a pleasure to deal with in all ways; courteous, competent, responsive.
Roya is one of the most understanding and compassionate hosts ever! I'd highly recommend staying here! Her communication was excellent as mine was a bit lacking because I was dealing with my father who was involved in a motor vehicle accident. Roya was quick to respond to my inquiry and was super patient and asked if I would be alright with the snowy weather. She gave a thorough rundown of the apartment which is spacious, clean, beautifully decorated and more, the space was a place of calm for me when I needed it! Roya is an excellent communicator and a thoughtful host. Her apartment is close by to lots of restaurants cafés shops public transportation and more! The next time you are in dc stay here!
My parents stayed in Roya's apartment during their last visit in Washington. They had a terrific stay! Located in a great neighborhood. Close to all the fun in town. This apartment is very comfortable. It is very clean. The street and building are quiet. Roya is very responsive and answered all our questions in a timely manner. I will certainly try to book this location again for my parents' next visit in DC.
Roya's place is wonderful. We stayed with her for five months. So we got to know her and we really got to know the apartment well.
The location is absolutely unbeatable! You will be staying 2 blocks from the metro station with all kinds of eateries. A couple of blocks the other way is 11th street with lots of restaurants and just down the hill is U Street. DC is a great city to go out. We walked home from metro on our own at all times of the night and never had a problem. Also, if you like walking, you can walk down to the National Mall in 30 minutes and Dupont in 20.
The apartment is super clean and very spacious with a walk-in closet and a very comfortable bed. Roya provides you with everything from some breakfast to get you started, great tips to navigate the neighborhood to a nice selection of on-demand TV. The water pressure is indeed great, there is a great gas stove and all the cooking utensils you need and comfy futons to relax in the evening.
Roya is a fantastic host. She tries (and succeeds) very hard to keep the appartment very clean and hygenic for all visitors. She is very accomodating and welcoming as well. She has been more than friendly to us and our little son, who she has been great and warm to.
Last but not least, she is an interesting woman who will give you her unique perspective on DC and all that is happening here. I can wholeheartedly recommend her places either for tourist visits or for longer stays.
Roya is a gracious host with attention to details. She makes you feel very welcome and is always on hand to answer any questions. Her flat is clean, uncluttered and complete with everything you need. Location is so near the train station, supermarket and restaurants. We had a great time in DC.
Roya is an excellent host and the apartment is wonderful. Everything was ready for us, and Roya took good care of us. The apartment is very spacious - we were 5 persons without any problems. Roya had made the apartment nice and clean for us. We enjoyed our stay very much. The Metro is very close to the main events in Washington D.C. We can surely recommend this place !!
Roya's place worked great for us. It was clean and spacious just as the listing described it. The walk to the Metro was short and we were able to get everywhere quickly. The Columbia heights area was very convenient. The Target store nearby had a nice grocery section. On street parking was easy to find. If you are visiting DC, we would definitely recommend Roya's place.
