We are a married couple who work and love living in DC. We share our home with our friendly, goofy, well-mannered Standard Poodle (large dog). We'd be pleased to offer advice/suggestions on where to go, what to see and what's currently going on.
1) Complete your profile information and include a clear, recent photograph of yourself. Please look elsewhere if this makes you uncomfortable.
2) Tell us about yourself and your stay needs and expectations--what brings you to DC, your background, work, etc.
3) Be advised that we may ask to see and copy your ID or passport when you check in.
4) NO SMOKING allowed.
We may ask to see and copy your ID or passport.
Completely close the front glass door after you come in or leave the house.
Lock the top, round, front door lock when you are in for the evening.
No people-food for our dog, no matter how cute he looks.
NO SMOKING allowed. If smoking outside, move at least 25 feet/8 meters away from the house, and throw your (unlit) cigarette butts in a trash can.
These guys are great. The set up is so professional and yet friendly. The room is clean and comfortable, they have really thought about what people need in a place to stay and try to provide it all. I strongly recommend them!
La estancia en casa de Helen y Journey ha estado perfecta. Habitación amplia, limpia, luminosa y con baño grande.
Barrio tranquilo y parada de metro muy cercana.
Thank you helen journeyed and pooch. A pleasure to meet you. Thank you for a comfortable and great value stay!
I love staying with journey and Helen! Second time and I'd be back for a third this month if they hadn't already booked it :-( They're warm and welcoming and also really respect your privacy. A home away from home. Great room (spacious and really comfy), great neighborhood (yummy restaurants and coffee places), great stay!
I had a very nice and pleasant stay with Helen and Journey. The room was like on the pictures and very clean, just like the bathroom. The two hosts (and their gorgeous dog) were very friendly and helping, giving advice for great restaurants and museums. Everything I needed was provided, including breakfast.
I was in Washington for a conference at the Washington convention center, which is at walking distance of the house. Also museums and the sightseeing spots can be easily reached by foot, which was perfect.
In total it was a great time and I will definitely stay with Helen and Journey again, if I come back to Washington DC. Thanks for everything!
Great place to stay. Helen and Journey were easy to communicate with and keep the room very clean. I arrived late and had no issues getting into the apartment. Thanks to the both of them for a great airbnb experience.
Great experience in Washington DC. The bedroom and bathroom were clean. The hosts provided me information about caffés, supermarkets, public transportation etc. in the neighborhood. Check-in was easy. Self-serve breakfast was also provided. The (cute) dog did not disturb me at all. Accomodation highly recommended.
