Interaction with Guests
We tend to leave town when guests are staying at our house, but are always available via phone or email to answer any questions.
Mt Pleasant is one of the most beloved neighborhoods in the city because it is a quiet reprieve from city life, while still being close to (website hidden) Pleasant has dozens of cafes, restaurants, bars and papuserias. Nearby Cleveland Park, Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights and the trendy 11th Street strip offer more dining and nightlife options within a 15 - 20 minute walk or short bus ride. We are just off Rock Creek Parkway, which allows for fast and easy driving down to the Mall via Beach Drive - cherry blossoms anyone?
The national zoo is within walking distance only 1/2 mile away.
Walk to bus routes within 3 blocks and metro station .8 miles away to access the entire (website hidden). Pleasant also has a Capital Bikeshare station to rent a bike by the half hour or by the day to take to over 120 locations throughout the metro area.
There is off street parking in the driveway in the back of the house which will fit one large, or two small cars. Because it's not a busy street, there are always spots for on-street parking on nights/weekends - the street is zoned so you have to have local tags to avoid getting tickets during weekdays between 8am and 7pm.
There is a rental unit below the house and neighbors on both sides and we ask guests to be respectful of our neighbors and not be loud after midnight. This is our house, so treat it with care! And please, no smoking.
The house is amazing. Needed a place for Marine Corps Marathon. Perfect spot. And made a great base camp for my family to walk down the road and watch the race around mile marker 8. Crossing my fingers it's available next year.
It was a very nice stay, the townhouse is located very near to downtown. The house itself is very cozy and clean, shower and kitchen are very updated. Four of my colleagues and I enjoyed our stay, and we would definitely choose them again if we are visiting DC in the future.
The house was very clean, with towels laid out in all the rooms. The guest book made it known we should feel free to use milk in the refrigerator and any of the pantry spices. Whenever we had questions, Asa and Andrea got right back to us.
The neighborhood is so charming. Coming from NYC it felt like a real getaway. There's a park nearby where you can do a 4 mile hike. There is also a playground in walking distance. We also walked to some great restaurants on 11th St, which is about 20 minutes away on foot.
The house is even better than it looks like in the pictures. Really comfortable and easy to hang out in. We were 6 adults and 3 kids. One adult had a room to herself and one adult slept on the couch bed downstairs. The master bedroom is huge with a private bathroom. There is a parking spot in back of the house.
La casa de Asa y Andrea es tan linda y comoda como aparece en las fotos. El barrio es muy tranquilo y la casa esta justo frente de un bosque pero en solo 10 minutos caminando (o 2 minutos en autos) se llega a la zona comercial de Mt. Pleasant que esta llena de restaurantes, tiendas, metro, etc.
La logistica de check-in y check-out fue perfecta y Asa y Andrea respondieron inmediatamente a todas nuestras dudes.
Asa and Andrea were INCREDIBLE hosts!! My family came to Washington, DC during the 4th of July Holiday and they were kind enough to list their home for the weekend. What a Treat! Everything was clean, house was very hospitable and they even provided an extra mattress on a moments notice. Located in a quiet neighborhood in Washington, DC, we had easy and quick access to the city, museums, restaurants, and of course Fireworks! Awesome Hosts! - JW-
