  • We really enjoyed our stay here! The condo is literally across the street from a Metro stop and Safeway, which was very convenient. The kitchen was well stocked and the property was very comfortable. The private parking spot was also very convenient. Melissa responded promptly to our questions and dealt with the only issue we had very quickly. We would definitely stay here again.

Hello! We are Melissa and Latif (pronounced like Queen Latifa without the a!). We are domestic partners and have resided here in the Southwest neighborhood of DC since 2011. Melissa is originally from Utah and Latif from Phildelphia, but he claims DC now as his home. He's a true Washingtonian and has been here for the last 15 years. Together, we love to travel, read, eat yummy Korean food, and take walks along the Potomac river near our house to the fresh open fish market. We love music - Melissa loves her Imagine Dragons, and Latif his Kendrick Lamar and Prince. We are avid book readers and welcome our guests to read any of the books we have out while staying at our home. For television shows, we love Homeland, The Americans, Downton Abbey, and any Star Trek franchise. Being a good host is our number one priority and we want to give others the affordable chance to see and explore beautiful Washington DC, especially with their families and friends. Our townhome is quite spacious for being downtown and its ideally located to the National Mall and Smithsonian, the monuments, Capitol Hill, the Nationals baseball stadium, and of course the White House. With the newly-remodeled Safeway Grocery Store and the Waterfront Metro (green line) just across the street from us, your visit to DC will be simple and easy to get around. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions!
