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 :)

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Roya was a lovely host, providing coffee, juice, and muffins upon our arrival. The space was exactly as pictured, and very clean. It was nice to have a bed and bedding for each of us. There is plenty of storage to keep your luggage out of the living area and it was great to have access to laundry if needed during our stay. Additionally, the location of Roya's place is ideal for using the Metro, walking to shops and to get groceries.

  • Roya's apartment was perfect for our recent stay. The location was excellent, 2 blocks from the Metro, Target, CVS and many restaurants. The apartment was spacious, clean, bright and well supplied. Roya provided all the necessities, including dish soap, hand soap, paper products & laundry soap. We didn't need to buy anything, so we really appreciated that. She provided plenty of extra blankets, sheets, pillows and towels. Roya was extremely helpful, giving us information about the area and the best way to get around. She also had many guide books about attractions in the area which we found very helpful. We had a great visit!

  • Super clean, very comfortable space within easy walking distance to many cool places to eat and drink, and to shopping. Jump on the metro or take the bus down 14th to get to more great restaurants and see the sights. Roya was a great host -- very responsive and helpful.

  • Roya was an excellent host and her place was very nice. Plenty of room for 5 adults. Great location. Close to shopping and Metro as well as many nice restaurants. We had a great experience and would recommend this place to everyone.

    March 2014
  • 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.

    February 2014
  • Roya is a great host and a pleasure to deal with in all ways; courteous, competent, responsive.

    February 2014
  • 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!

    January 2014
  • 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.

Greetings! I have lived most of my life in DC, a city that has a promising capacity to become the next world cultural melting pot. This prospect is quite palpable here in Columbia Heights! I live right here in the building, which is comprised of three apartments. I take good care of the upkeep as well as the gardens in the front and back. You'll love my roses! I love traveling and have been to many countries around the world and so I hope to exchange some great stories with you :) Besides property management, I am a musician and composer in the World Fusion genre blending various musical cultures and reflecting "the incredible closeness of beings." I hope to share some of my music with you also!
