About This Listing
Location, location, location!
This cozy apartment is situated on the first floor of the Victorian town house in the heart of Adams Morgan. It is great for visitors who want to explore Washington, DC. Whether your interests are mainstream or off the beaten path, physical or intellectual, you’ll find it nearby. Nearby Rock Creek Park is great for jogging or walks. The entrance to the National ZOO is located just two blocks away and a grocery store only a block away.

You can take a Metro Bus that stops half a block from the apartment, and be by the White House in less than seven minutes. Off-street parking behind the house is available for extra $20 a day. You can catch the metro, which is about 4 blocks away.
We like to use Groupons to explore the ethnic variety of restaurants in our neighborhood. The nightlife is about a block away, but our neighborhood is very safe and family friendly.
You can contact us during your stay with any concern.
There is a queen size bed in both rooms. There is also a full length sofa in the living room for an additional person. In the sunroom, which is attached to the second room there is a twin sized memory foam mattress. The glass house attached to the sunroom is used to store our equipment and should be used for emergency exit only. The glass house is at the rear of the house. Please do not lock the glass house door.
THE SECOND BEDROOM IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR PARTIES OF 3 OR MORE unless previous arrangements have been made. Please contact me regarding your needs. Because we live in a residential neighborhood, we are not open to hosting parties. Please keep the number of people that are not guests to a minimum.
You need to disclose the total number of guests accurately when making reservation requests, including infants and children. Please clarify the details of your reservation, including those who will be traveling with you, with your host via the messaging system on the site before submitting a reservation request.
Washer and Dryer are in the basement and can be used upon request. Full kitchen with dishwasher is in the unit. WiFi accessible. Toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, body soap, facial soap, lotion) and hair dryer available. If you've forgotten something please let us know, we may be able to supply.
For those with dog allergies: our dog does not shed and he does not live in this unit but in ours above. I'm actually allergic to dogs (severely allergic to cats), so I did research on dogs that didn't shed and had low dandur because I do have allergies to dogs and cats, so I think people with allergies will be ok.
PLEASE CONTACT VIA AIRBNB messaging and not email.
Anything in the flat is for your use. If you need anything please let me know. The dresser in the first bedroom has extra toiletries as well.
Interaction with Guests
We try to greet most of our guests, but our check in doesn't require this because we have number keypads to access the flat. If you check in very late or leave early, we may miss you, but we're always available if you have any questions. We live above the flat. Please keep in mind that we monitor airbnb messaging religiously and can be easily contacted through the website.
I love this neighborhood. It's quiet considering that we live just a block away from all the restaurants and bars.
PARKING: We have a parking spot in the back. We normally park our cars in the back and it fits both our cars, however, if a guest requests parking, we will try to find parking ahead of time for one of the cars. This is why it is important for a guest to let us know they need parking in advance, because parking in our neighborhood after rush hour is VERY difficult.
The 42 bus takes you to most tourist destinations and less than a block to walk. I recommend downloading the Uber of Lyft app, but you can obtain a taxi less than a block from our house off of Columbia rd. There are two metros within a 5-10 minute walk as well.
The closest grocery store is Safeway. It is around the corner from the house off of Columbia Rd. (the main road off our house). It is walking distance and less than a block away. CVS and seven eleven are also there. There are many restaurants along Columbia Rd. and 18th St. A favorite brunch spot is Tryst. (18th st), a favorite noodle soup is Pho14 (columbia rd).
Other Things to Note

Washer and Dryer are in the basement and can be used upon request. Full kitchen with dishwasher are in the unit. If you load the dishwasher the detergent is located under the sink.
THE SECOND BEDROOM IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR PARTIES OF 3 OR MORE.
This place was exactly as advertised! The hosts were very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. The parking spot was pretty convenient since street parking around the neighborhood can be a pain. Close to everything and a comfortable neighborhood to see DC as the locals do. The house itself was clean and orderly, no complaints. Thanks again Grace!
Grace's apartment was lovely and both she and her husband were welcoming and later, very obliging when I needed some work documents printed. The apartment was spacious and clean, also quiet and conveniently located. I'd certainly recommend it.
Vladi was great about letting us drop off our luggage early so we could make it to the zoo. Great neighborhood that is close to the National Zoo and close to paths that are great to run or bicycle on. Two metro stations (Park and Columbia) that are just under one mile away that zip you effortlessly to all of the DC must sees.
