About this listing
The room features a luxurious ultra-comfortable memory foam JW Marriott mattress that will allow any guest to indulge and have a peaceful rest in DC. The room is located in a rowhouse just steps away from Nat's Stadium and minutes away from downtown
This row-house is the perfect blend of fun and work. It is located 2 blocks away from the National's Stadium, or under 5 minute metro ride to the core of the city. Prefer walking? Sure, walking to Chinatown is 30 minutes, I walk it every day. Walking to the Aerospace museum - 15 minutes, the capitol - 15 minutes.
Came by car, sure, plenty of free parking available for guests, a free parking pass will be provided so that you will not have to pay parking(parking during games and events is $30 flat). The house is also one light away from I-295, I-395 highways easily connecting with Maryland and Virginia.
Added bonus is that this house is directly across the entrance of Ft McNair army base and it's War College. Those that come to the base are one minute walk to the front gate.
If you have not used uber you can use them for $20 off your first ride with promo code uberFREE20ATDC, so your transportation to my house might be free.
Due to popular demand if you are in need of a car rental you can rent my Toyota Prius 4 2010(fully loaded - GPS/rearview camera/premium sound/leather interior) in perfect condition for a rate of $35 per day. The transaction will be done through a third party and 25% will be required to pay for insurance for the car(mainly to comply with DC laws). Please inquire if you are interested in renting my Prius and I will be more than happy to provide more details. The car is registered in Zone 6 so you can park in Zone 6 Residential zone which includes the Capitol, all SW and Capitol Heights as well as parts of Chinatown. Restrictions apply.
The guests will be able to be in all common areas in the house which include the bathroom on the second floor, the bathroom and kitchen on the first floor, as well as the backyard porch and front entrance if one wants to take some fresh air or have a smoke.
Interaction with Guests
I do not live in the house so the guests will not be interacted with(I will pop by in the afternoon to clean and check on things). I will still be able to answer all of your questions. I have had more than 700 guests so far and have personally answered and helped each of my guests to have a memorable experience(I have 100% response rate). Any question at all I will help, and there are no stupid questions, I can help with anything.

Southwest waterfront is home to the Maine Avenue Fish Market, Arena Stage, the Washington Marina, Fort McNair, and Hains Point; East and West Potomac Park, a conjunction of two national parks between I-395 and the National Mall that contain the Tidal Basin, the Jefferson Memorial, and the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial (West Potomac Park continues into Northwest and includes the Lincoln Memorial and World War II Memorial, both of which straddle the Southwest/Northwest boundary).
Another point of the Southwest is Buzzard Point. Buzzard Point is the home of the U.S. Coast Guard, which is headquartered in a building at the confluence of the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers. The new RFK DC United's Stadium is being built here now, with a projected completion date of late 2017.
And the biggest and best attraction is the National's Stadium which hosts Nationals games, and many other events. The nearby Navy Yard neighborhood hosts a number of events and has world class five star entertainment.
The house is located exactly between two metro stations each about 7-10 minutes walk - the Navy Yard station(the metro stop for the Nats stadium) and Waterfront(the metro stop for the fish market, and the Theater and waterfront promenade, both on the green line.
The house is located one light away from I-295, I-395 and I-95, it is very easy for those coming in by car.
All major sites(museums, white house, capitol, the national mall) and within walking distance(15-30 minutes) or 5 minute metro ride from my house.
Smoking allowed, but only outside the house. Please cleanup after yourself. Internet/use of kitchen will be included for free with the daily rate. Please wash your dishes and utensils after use, we only use the dishwasher when full. You share the space with other people so please be respectful and wash what you use.
We live in this house and always take our shoes off when entering the house and we expect you to do the same. This is a private home so please respect our traditions. Your assistance in this regard is greatly appreciated.
Both of us are full time working professionals that work 8-5 job, so check in is generally very flexible - check in the morning to leave luggage(we will provide a front door eletronic keylock code so that you can enter when nobody is in) and then leave to explore however please do not expect to arrive at 3pm and expect to have the space and room completely clean(most of the time the room is cleaned on the day before or before we go to work if the previous guest has checked out). There might be guests before you that might have just left and we cannot be in the house to clean the room. Expect to have a clean room after we finish work and come home(after 7pm). Checking in very late is also not a problem at all since we will provide a password to the keylock, however please be extremely quiet as not to wake anybody up.
A security deposit is required just in case something is broken/damaged and needs to be repaired. It will be returned in FULL when I have verified nothing has been damaged.
A lost key will cost $30 to replace so please do not lose your key. We like pets but due to shedding we have a fee of $15 per day for each pet that you bring over. Also please inquire before you book since I may have guests that are allergic in which case I may not be able to have you stay with me.
Please inquire before you book for any additional questions, and I will assist.
Pets will be an additional $50 fee which will go directly to my cleaner for deep scrub of the carpets and full washing of all sheets and duvet.
