Personal vehicle is best for accessing the house. Public transportation is available, though not ideal - 25 min walk to bus stop, then 40 min bus ride to Addison Road Metro station. Bus runs M - F, 6 am - 7 pm only.

A nicely appointed room with a twin bed and lots of sunshine awaits you. This 3 bedroom townhouse backs to the woods, where you'll see the wildlife. Your full guest bathroom is right outside the room.

In the neighborhood there's a swimming pool, basketball and tennis courts, plenty of walking trails around a lake and through the woods. An outside deck and separate patio invite a place to dine right next to nature. The gas fireplace invites relaxation after a long day or on cold nights. I have a small Yorkshire terrier who follows me around the house and stays out of the guests rooms. My house is your house. It is clean, smoke free and located in a safe, quiet residential area.

Linens, towels, toiletries - directions, advice provided!

Interaction with Guests

My guests tend to be independent. I'm usually out of the house or away in my bedroom. If your schedule permits to hang out or interact more, I would love to.

Getting around

Personal vehicle is best for accessing the house. Public transportation is available, though not ideal. I provide free on-street and driveway parking for your vehicle.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Tiffany was very helpful. She responded to emails promptly, with helpful suggestions. She went out of her way to welcome me.

  • As advertised, it was a bed in a private room. However, Tiffany was very friendly and accommodating. She basically gave me free reign of the house and was very active in communicating with me before my arrival. You also can't beat the price! It was just what I needed right when I needed it. If I'm ever in her area again, I will definitely try and stay here.

  • I stayed with Tiffany for one night. She was very flexible with my check-in, which I appreciated tremendously and her communication was timely. When I arrived she was welcoming and friendly. Her house was cozy and warm and I really enjoyed chatting with her, though it was brief... I felt like we could be friends if I lived in DC! :) Thanks for having me, Tiffany!

  • Good value. Very accommodating. Granted my last minute request and accepted my request to extend my stay a few more days. Had the house mostly to myself or so it felt, but even though I barely saw her, she was responsive when needed. Would recommend.

Hi All, I am a big travel enthusiast! I love to see different places, experience new cultures, be off from work...LOL. I've lived and traveled throughout most of Central America. I recently started exploring Asia through visiting Thailand & India and having parents from Jamaica, regular visits there are a given. A large majority of my travel has been international, but I have vowed to try and see more of my own country now. If you would like to come and visit me I have two guest rooms available that I have listed here. I am very convenient to DC, as that's where I work. The house is clean, well appointed and in a quiet neighborhood. Please feel free to send me a booking request, I'd love to have you!
