The Space

Great Location at a Great Price - Don't Spend Your Time in DC Stuck in Transport!

Blocks from the Capitol, National Mall, many Memorials, and the Smithsonian in a safe neighborhood.

2 bedroom rowhouse - with king and queen beds, an inflatable mattress, and a big sectional couch within 3 blocks of L'enfant Plaza, Federal Center SW, and Waterfront Metro Stations. 10 min Taxi from the airport. 5 minutes from the Interstate.

Starbucks are within a few blocks in every direction and Safeway is 2 blocks away as well. A few restaurants and fast-food in the neighborhood, head out, or stay in and make use of the kitchen!

I've lived in DC off and on for 15 years (even used to work as a tour guide and support visits by Constituents when I worked on the Hill back in the day). There is much about the city I don't know (I do have friends who can help), but I can help think through a great visit, whether it is how to make the best of your Conference or a vacation.

  • Family and i of total 5 had a great time at Paul's house for 2 days. I would say he and his apartment is close to perfect, if not perfect. Clean and well furbished house, plenty utensils and materials for our cooking. He even fetch us to 1 or 2 spots while raining. Thank you Paul!

  • Paul was an excellent host. He handled the initial issues with AIRbnb reservations with grace and intent on making sure we were satisfied. He provided for an abundance of information about DC to enhance our experience. His place was everything as advertised and it's comfort and location truly made for an enjoyable experience in DC. It is located literally 2 blocks from the Waterfront SW Metro station with a grocery and drug store on the way, too. As such we did not need to rent a car. The trip to and from Reagan Airport was a breeze. Thanks Paul for your wonderful hospitality.

  • My wife and I currently live in Baltimore, and recently, my wife’s family came for a visit. We decided that we should take them to Washington DC for some sightseeing. We knew that we would need a few days to see all of the good stuff, so we thought we should look into getting a place to stay. There were six of us in total, and we all stayed at Paul’s house for two nights and three days. The house is very nice (clean and spacious) and its location is simply fantastic! Paul was very accommodating, he provided us with useful information, and we would not hesitate to stay at his place again. In fact, we are looking forward to it! Washington DC was great, and staying at Paul’s made the experience even better.

  • Paul was a great host. He was quickly responsive to emails, even in different countries, and was more than gracious to help us out to host a large group of 8 friends for a central reunion in DC. His place was located near the Mall, so very walkable for museums. I highly recommend this place if you're looking for a place in DC.

  • The house was even more spacious than it appeared in the photos, and was very comfortable for our family of 5 (one on the airbed in the 2nd bedroom). The location was excellent in every respect -- quiet and safe, and close to the Mall and museums, the L'Enfant Plaza metro stop, and a large Safeway supermarket. It was very helpful to have a dedicated parking spot. Paul was kind and accommodating, especially of our late checkout. This was our first Airbnb experience and a very positive one!

  • Un super sejour chez Paul, la maison est magnifique, proche de tous les lieux touristiques. Il s'agit d'une maison typique americaine, comme nous pouvons l'imagine, nous autre Francais. Nous avons vraiment apprecié notre voyage a Washington et c'est grace à Paul qui nous a donné de bons conseils ! Merci pour tout Paul !

  • Paul’s place worked out very well for us, and Paul himself was very accommodating. The location was terrific – a pleasant urban neighborhood very close to the Mall with all its attractions. The off-street parking was very convenient, and grocery and drug stores were within easy walking distance.

  • Overall, we are satisfied and happy with Paul's house. It was exactly as he mentioned in his intro.

    All tourist places of interest are walking distance from his house. And was so too the supermarket, fish market +++!!! If you take Big Bus Tour, L'Enfant Plaza red stop is nearby (about 5 mins walk).

    His tenant at the basement Elma (if I remember correctly) was also nice, tolerant and helpful like Paul & Caitlin.

    I recommend Paul's house if you plan to stop by at DC. Thks again!

    December 2013
  • Our family of five [three teenagers aged 14,17, and 19] felt completely at home in Paul's two story Rowhouse. We were there for one week and we found that there was easy access to both grocery shopping as well as the Metro. As well as that the Smithsonian museums were a short walk away. The neighborhood was upmarket and we all felt secure and confident even at night.
    We were very impressed by the comfort and style of the apartment itself and the laundry arrangements worked very well.
    Overall I rate the quality of this apartment and experience as excellent particularly as Paul responded in a timely way to all of our email queries.
    We leave with excellent memories of our stay in Washington.

    Hugh and family.

Hi! I enjoy making the most of every day. So far, life has been interesting and I feel fortunate. I'm committed to making the world a better place and that is reflected in my work, and hopefully to some extent how I live my life. I'm not sure there are things I can't live without, but I do love to learn, music, and hold my family and friends dear. My favorite travel destinations so far have been Venezuela, Ethiopia, Slovakia, South Africa, Malawi, and more to come! I used to work with my Congressman and provide tours to constituents, and later worked in youth leadership programming, teaching them about the capital city. I have been living in DC long enough to know a few hidden gems and at the same time, still appreciate the incredible museums, and historical monuments and buildings. I have an extra bedroom in my house, and am busy enough to stay out of your way while visiting. Would love to have you as a guest. and of course, I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.
