  • We just spent 5 days with Caterina and Francesco in their lovely, updated home. The bedroom was a pleasant space with a roomy closet and plenty of drawer space for clothes and luggage and it was nice having our own designated bathroom. The futon mattress (I think it was a futon) was too firm for my liking, but it didn't seem to bother my husband, and despite a cat allergy, I had no problems with the two sweet cats as they keep the house clean and the cats were not allowed in our room. The location worked well for us as it was a short bus ride from downtown and the train station (we took Amtrak across the US to Washington) and Caterina and Francesco had great recommendations for nearby pubs and good places to eat. They were very nice and accommodating hosts….very relaxed, respectful, helpful, and friendly. They were actually the nicest and easiest people we have stayed with in all our Airbnb travels.
    One last note: we flew home from Dulles airport and decided to take public transportation ($12 for two people with SmarTrip cards or exact change in bills from L'Enfant Plaza) instead of the airport shuttle ($40 for two people and it would have come and picked us up). Getting to L'Enfant Plaza was easy and took about 20 minutes (G8 bus takes 5 minutes from Rhode Island Ave directly to Shaw Metro which goes directly to L'Enfant Plaza). Just check the bus schedule (it was the 5A bus) because it only runs every 45 or 50 minutes, and make sure you're at the right bus stop (the first one you see is for dropping people off, the pick up stop is about a block further on). Oh, also, if you're in Washington on a weekend and you're going to the Natural History Museum, I recommend the free tours, as ours was wonderful.

  • Although we held reservations for 7 nights at the Marriott Courtyard adjacent to the NoMa Metro station, I tried to find cheaper accommodations via AirBnb TWO DAYS BEFORE TRAVELING. I found Caterina and Francesco who answered promptly. We were accepted quickly by them/AirBnB for which we are VERY GRATEFUL since they saved us $1035 for the 6 nights, Mar 23-29, 2014. As clearly disclosed, they are cat owners, so do choose other accommodations if you are disturbed by cat hair. Although the two closest Metro stations, Shaw and NoMa, are not convenient to this address, the bus 80 is VERY convenient {North Capitol and T (website hidden)} and will easily get you to the Gallery/Chinatown and Metro Center stations via H Street. ASAP, obtain your SmarTrip metro farecards [for both subway & buses]. We were allowed full use of the kitchen where we wanted to supplement their generous breakfast items. The bedroom, bed, closet, drawers, desk, and private bathroom were comfortable and met our needs. We do recommend staying with Caterina and Francesco [both are fluent in Italian] who provided us with helpful touring tips, privacy, and respect.

  • I highly recommend Caterina's and Francesco's home. It's a clean and familiar place in a pretty safe neighborhood and within 15 min bikeride to Downtown DC. Caterina and Francesco are very nice, easy going and always willing to help. Thanks a lot for a good start in DC!

  • Caterina and Francesco have been very nice hosts. I came there with my parents, and they don't speak English - we are French. Caterina and Francesco made the biggest efforts to speak in English with them for them to feel more comfortable and not rely too much on me.
    Everything was clean, very nice, and Caterina answered promptly to all my messages. I would highly recommend anyone to book with them.

  • Caterina and Francesco were so welcoming and kind. They were extremely prompt with their responses and provided very helpful information before I arrived. They also had lots of information available. The location is great with regular buses and not too far from Metros and Union Station. The room is very comfortable and quiet and the kitchen is very expansive. I would highly recommend to anyone to stay with them. They were very kind and generous. Thank you Caterina and Francesco, I hope if I'm back in DC to come stay again.
