We live 5 miles from the White House in an older, nice, established neighborhood. The room is cozy, quiet, and with private bathroom. We're close to the Metro, Bus, and an easy walk to both Takoma Park and Silver Spring.
The space is a bedroom with a private bathroom attached off the main house. The shower is in the bathroom upstairs and you have access anytime you'd like.
The room has a real nice memory foam queen bed -- a true queen size.

Lisa and Michael are wonderful.
They are very nice and helpful at all times. The room is perfect.
My best Airbnb experience. Very recommendable.
Great host, nice location, it was a good days in Washington. I would definitely recommend this place for everybody going to visit Washington.
Just one wish: as we couldn`t use the kithcen - we would like to have a kettle in the room so we don`t need to go to cafe every time we want to drink...
Thank you anyway.
I was in DC for a conference and Michael's and Lisa's place was the perfect option for me: close to the red metro line, close to a big supermarket (Safeway) and in a quiet area. I was happy I had a fridge in my room and Lisa also made sure I had a small electric heater in case I felt cold at night. As Michael and Lisa were traveling I did not get to meet them in person, but Lisa was very easy to reach by phone and helped me with any questions I had. All in all, a great place to stay in DC.
i love DC this city a lot, and part of the reason is because living in Lisa's sweet apartment. it's convenient to get to downtown,and really really clean.Lisa is a really nice host that is willing to help whatever she can do. she has a really nice apartment with a safe neighborhood. they have three cute cats, and the room is warm which makes me feel like being home :) really enjoy staying in Lisa's apartment. excellent experience.
I only saw Lisa and Mike upon my arrival, but Lisa was always available via email and text to answer any questions I had about where to eat in the neighborhood, etc. The room is exactly as advertised and I am looking forward to staying there again on my next visit to DC. Thank you Lisa and Mike for a great place to stay!
Michael & Lisa couldn't be better hosts. The space is nice, clean and a good location. Bonus if you love cats like I do: They have 3 :)
very cozy room，nice host, safe and beautiful neiborghood, a good place to stay in d.c.
Michael and Lisa were gracious hosts and I'm glad I stayed with them. From the very beginning, Lisa was excellent in communicating with me and quick to provide response. The room is clean, spacious and private exactly how it was promoted. They are an enthusiastic couple who were more than willing to give recommendations and ensure you had a great time in DC! I felt comfortable and the neighborhood is very safe
Good basic room in nice neighborhood, very convenient to transportation downtown and to shopping and restaurants. We enjoyed morning coffee at the little table on the porch and the private entrance. Lisa lent us metro cards and a parking pass for us to park our car on the street, which was a thoughtful extra and made things easier for us.
We stayed a couple of nights with Lisa and Michael during the shutdown of the government. They were very helpful in giving us tips how to spend time in DC when everything was closed. They provided maps and SmartCards, which we appreciated greatly!
We enjoyed very much staying in their lovely house and the room was very clean. The room is attached to the house with a door to the living room and has a separate entrance door. This is a nice combination so you can choose whether you want your privacy or to be around them.
Highly recommended! We need to come back when everything is open and their home will be our first choice!
