About this listing
We have a two-bedroom, one bathroom row house one block from the Shaw/Howard Metro stop in Washington DC.
It is a perfect location for anyone that wants to be close to transit, and is a short walk to the convention center, U-Street neighborhood, Chinatown, and Logan Circle.
My wife and I live in the other bedroom, and love showing people fun things to do in our city. Our house is powered using 100% wind energy through RECs.
Guest will have access to the entire house, yard, and all amenities.
Interaction with Guests
We enjoy interacting with guest and making new friends but also respect the privacy of those who would rather not be bothered.
Shaw is a great neighborhood full of small and unique bars, restaurants, and things to do. There is plenty to see, do, and eats within a few blocks.
We are 1 block from the Shaw Metro station (Green and Yellow Lines), a bike-share dock, and several bus lines. Most of downtown is a quick walk.
David, Meredith and Fred (their cat) are the perfect hosts. I felt at home, their house is beautiful, clean, walking distance to the metro and in a great neighbourhood. The room is spacious, the bed is super comfortable and the pillows are great!!!!
I would definitley recommend booking here, it was an extremely comfortable stay.
Thanks David and Meredith!!!!

Dave & Meredith made my partner and I feel right at home. I was in town interviewing for a position, 400 miles away from home, and I'd dragged my boyfriend along with me who was apprehensive about staying with strangers while I was out. However, not only did those hesitations disappear when we met them, he even stayed in the home all morning until I was done. They met us at the door late at night, provided us both with keys, gave us a grand tour of their beautiful home and chatted with us. They provided a manual of the area, free bikeshare passes and a ton of tips and hints. Having them as my first point of contact was a great move! I highly recommend Dave & Meredith to any and everyone staying in the D.C. area anytime soon!
Dave and Meredith are nice people. They are very kind and frendly.
I was in Washington DC for conference in the Hotel Marriot Marquis, their home had very good location. It was just what I needed.
It was all very easy going staying with David and Meredith. The house is nice and the room is really great. They were really lovely and relaxed and easy going. The area itself was not so exciting, but as it was so close to the metro it was easy to get around.
This was a great place to stay and Dave and Meredith were very welcoming. I was in DC on a work trip and was in meetings the majority of the time so I was not there a lot, but it was a great place to crash at night. Everything was clean and comfortable and I would strongly recommend it to others.
David and Meredith are great hosts. Their place is very well located (a block from the metro) and very cozy. Dave and Meredith are very friendly and make you feel at home. There is a cute cat named Fred as well. I would recommend staying here.
