The Space

Garden apartment is in a 100 year old centrally located Columbia Heights townhouse. The space is open with a one large room with a queen bed, and a queen size sleep sofa, small but full kitchen, and bathroom. There are laundry facilities as well. Fresh linens are provided as well as a stocked kitchen with pots and pans, basic kitchen tools, dishes, and a commonly used spices. Nearly anything else you may need in the kitchen ( aside from groceries) is available on request.

The space is full of fun items and modern furnishings and the location is central to all of the things you'll want to do in Washington DC. A few blocks to tons of restaurants and nightlife, shopping, and a very short metro ride to downtown sights and museums.

The apartment sleeps 4 comfortably on a queen size platform bed, and a queen size sleeper sofa ( very comfortable, not a fold up sofa mattress) and is suitable for up to 6 guests with an additional Queen Airbed on request. The apartment has a 32" flat screen television with digital cable, a vintage tube Hi-fi stereo (accessible wirelessly), a selection of board games, a drum kit, and a vintage pinball machine.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to their own bathroom, and full kitchen with a gas stove. There's a vintage tube Hi-Fi to listen to your own music either wired or wirelessly. Play pinball on the vintage 1980 Xenon machine, or check your email on the provided iMac. There's a large L shaped couch to stretch out on after a long day seeing the sights, as well as a smart DVD player with access to Netflix, Youtube, Amazon Prime, and my own movie server with access to my own movie collection. There is also access to a washer and dryer should you need it during your stay.

Interaction with Guests

I live right upstairs if you need anything, and I'm always available, but once you check in you'll have the place to yourself.

The Neighborhood

Columbia Heights is a fantastic place to live and visit. Convenient to everything going on in DC, the Columbia Heights Metro stop is your easy link to downtown monuments and museums. You can walk to restaurants and bars just up 11th st. or enjoy the fountain and community vibe in the Columbia Heights center near the Tivoli Theater. U St. is a short walk to even more nightlife, restaurants, weekend flea markets, and even more shops. You'll really be in the middle of it all!

Getting Around

The metro Green/Yellow line is just a few blocks away, and is a short 5 stop trip down to the monuments and museums without having to change trains. About 30 minutes door to door. It couldn't be easier!
In addition I rent bikes on Spinlister. Just use your favorite search engine to find "profile/15341 on Spinlister"

House Rules

Communication is the key, let me know what type of schedule you are going to be keeping and I'll be as accommodating as I can. I live here with my two dogs and my baker girlfriend in the floors above this apartment. I work weekends and she works weekdays but both of our schedules are very flexible. Once you're checked in you're free to come and go as you please, and use the shared laundry or hang out in the back yard by the koi pond. If you have any questions please ask, We love this place and think you will too...
