I was born here in Washington DC and love the beat of this city. I've had several businesses; most lasting for more than 45 years. I know a lot about DC history and love telling interesting stories of yesteryear!
I am very friendly but have a great knack at serious business. It all began in 1969 when me and Hilton Felton, my music director, started our youth singing group named "Ed Gerald Gospel Sounds". Consequently, for more than 23 years I produced a local (Metropolitan DC) Gospel Show called, "Spread a Little Sunshine", on TV - WTOP, WUSA--CBS Channel 9. Simultaneously, I recorded and produced gospel music; started Paradise Productions Studio next door to this building, then obtained the current building in 1995. This current building produced records under the labels "Paradise Productions", "Energy for God Record Company", Gospel World of E.G., then "EG Record Company." Many notable gospel artists were produced in this building, including the Dorsey Team of Dr. Clayton Hannah and Dr. Thomas A Dorsey.
People who have stayed at my property have had a pleasant fun stay and usually don't like leaving on-time which is ok with me too!
Each of my rented rooms are arranged for your privacy as much as possible (even the few rooms with some shared spaces). These rooms will have some significant historical meaning of my times in DC during the years of TV or Radio producing or recording music or shows that were also performed and presented in metropolitan Parks and Recreation.
If you ask not you receive not, is my favorite motto! Be encouraged...life is truly too short.
Before booking: Link your Airbnb profile to a social network, verify your phone number; and complete your Airbnb profile. If your profile is not complete, upon checkin, expect us to ask to view a photo ID and possibly make a copy for our private records. The purpose is for emergencies and security, like hotels would expect.
After booking: Make sure you send a note letting us know when we will expect your arrival. You may give us your travel itinerary, for instance. It will be helpful in arranging your checkin, if you plan to arrive within our usual 4pm checkin timeframe. If you expect to arrive more than 1 hour later than the estimated time you gave us, call or send a text updating your arrival time. If we have waited longer than an hour and don't hear from you, you may get charged $20 cash when you check in, for arranging to return or getting someone else to let you in.
When you get the opportunity to stay as our guest(s), make sure you read the online House Manual for clarity in your stay and especially your checkout procedures. The Manual is located near the description of the room you selected and booked. Please read details so that you don't get locked out, for instance.
With some locations of the rooms there might be noises that you are not familiar with. This building is located on a busy travel street also. If you are sensitive to noise, we suggest you bring ear plugs.
Remember that Airbnb is not for guests expecting perfection, but for travelers who appreciate getting to know a host and our surroundings, and bonding with the neighborhood and who appreciate saving money. There are many hotel locations in DC but are two to three times or more the price per night.
This whole area of DC experiences very high volume of so many people from around the world, throughout the year. Security around this area in the District would most often have very active metro and other security police, secret police, CIA, FBI, etc., to monitor and guard all types of politicians and especially our President and his staff and family. This includes the citizens and visitors who are here too. Therefore, DC is not going to be a sleepy little town that a lot of people may be used to living. You can not compare DC or other larger cities, to your own quieter hometowns. However, if you are a conscience traveler and use your common scenes and stay alert, you will adapt to our many unique neighborhoods and people the longer you stay.
We expect you to keep your room(s) and immediate areas as tidy as possible during your stay. This will help you to follow checkout procedures, avoid additional cleanup fee charges, and when you leave, possibly avoid leaving anything behind.
You may text or call us anytime before, during, or as you check out with any questions about your visit. Thank You and Welcome to Our Nations Capital, DC!
I can arrange to schedule a basic driving tour of NW DC including Smithsonian, NatL Archives, Air & Space Museum; Iwa Jima Memorial, US Capital, Supreme Court, White House, Washington Monument, and a few more popular sites around NW Washington. I charge $45/hour for your group, up to 4 people. By the hour charges only apply (no halfs calculated). This Is daytime 9-6. After 6pm til midnight, $55/hour basic evening/night tour. Ask about my airport transportation service as well. I operate in all the metropolitan airports. If you're interested in the above, let me know in advance what you prefer for scheduling.
If you are driving and want to know what to do about parking in our neighborhood, there are some options. There is free street parking. However, its imperative you follow street signs for areas that require you to move your car during street cleaning times. You must watch the dates and times when its restricted. Also, watch "Residential Zone" parking. Hefty fines are issued if there are violations and/or you may be subjected to towing. Make sure you do not fail to adhere to DC's parking restrictions. The restrictions are lifted for street cleaning between Oct 31 thru March1, each Winter season, however.
If you expect to stay and park in our neighborhood for longer than two weeks with another State license plate, you need to go to DMV to get a temporary parking permit. (The District's Parking Enforcers will keep track). There are also downtown parking lots and garages. You can find them on a "Parking Panda" App. If you don't want to be concerned about the parking, i also rent a parking space behind the home and I would need to schedule you, if its available during your stay.
