The Space

Hello and welcome. My name is Marcella. I joined airbnb in 2008 but have been active since January 2013.

live in a two bedroom, one bathroom condo in Northwest DC. Apartment is light, airy, and comfortable with all amenities including washer/dryer, internet, cable, coffee maker..... What else do you need!? There is also a secure parking garage that is available if you have a car (for $15 per night). Street parking may also be accessible. The guest bedroom comfortably sleeps two people. The room has it's own AC/heat unit so you can adjust the temperature according to what is most comfortable to you. I live on the second floor of a medium sized secure building.

My guest bedroom has a very comfortable padded futon bed that sleeps two people. There is a desk and full sized closet for use. The room is carpeted and you can adjust your own temperature. Of course, I have sheets and towels.

Help yourself to coffee, tea, and breakfast cereals.

My neighborhood, Petworth, is a residential neighborhood in NW DC. I live two blocks from Georgia Avenue. Several bus stops are around the corner and less than two miles away are three different metro stops- Fort Toten, Silver Spring, and Georgia Avenue/Petworth stops. Downtown DC and tourist attractions are easily accessible.

As a host I can help orient you to the city, tourist destinations, hotspots, and surrounding areas.

Please no smoking or pets. Please let me know whether or not you want secured garage parking in your initial inquiry. Check-in and check-out anytime.

  • Marcella is a great host. We checked in pretty late but she left the key outside for us. The house is so contemporary and felt like I was at home. Everything was ready for us from towels to bedsheets. Thanks Marcella for hosting me and my brother.

She was very accommodating to our last minute booking and gave us great advice about where to eat and what to do in the city. The apartment is lovely and very clean. Would definitely stay again if I'm ever in DC in the future.

  • Marcella was really accommodating to our travel plans and a great host. Had no problems whatsoever, and she provided cereal in the morning. We had a great experience! (She even had almond milk for those who are lactose intolerant!)

  • We stayed for 6 nights and had a lovely time. The apartment is comfortable, trendy and has everything we required plus more. Marcella was a fantastic hostess - thought of everything and went the extra mile for us. Can't recommend this place enough if you're wanting to check out all the main tourist spots Washington has to offer.

  • Marcella's room was nice, the futon was comfortable and you can adjust the AC to your liking. I didn't spend a whole lot of time in the apartment because I was out working most of the time, but everything was fine. The apartment is not smack downtown, but there is lots if free parking right around the building, def. a plus when you are in Washington by car. I never took the bus/metro but assume that it takes you downtown pretty fast.
    It was easy to communicate with Marcella and she was a pleasant host. I can recommend her apartment to other Airbnb users!

  • My friend Johanna and I had an awesome time at Marcella place. She was so nice and everyday offer us breakfast. Also she text me during the day to give us tips to enjoy better the city.
    The room/bathroom was clean and is exactly the same as the pictures.
    Afterwards, the bus station is 5 min walk and you can go to downtown and all the attractive places in DC with one bus.
    If I have to go back to DC, definitely I'll stay at Marcella's place.
