PLEASE CHECK the CALENDAR for availability and pricing. My flatmate and I travel quite a bit so there are three possibilities.
1. MOST LIKELY: If both of us are here, the living room with a large couch is available (~$80 per night)
2. If one of us is gone, 1 private bedroom with a queen bed is available in addition to the living room (~$95 per night)
3. If both of us are gone, the whole apartment is available. (~$190 per night)
The prices will reflect the differences. We also take a lot of last minute trips so there's a chance that you may have a bedroom even if you booked for the living room. Feel free to inquire!
*Given that my flatmate sometimes come home late, the place is probably not suitable for families (parents, children).
My housemate Mak and I are super international and would prefer likeminded people who are open and fun. We may invite you to parties, have you come out with us, and explore the local side of DC.
Our home is your home! Help yourself to anything in the fridge and open bottles we have.
Interaction with Guests
We love making our guests feel at home. If time and opportunity permits, we're happy to invite them to local activities, parties, etc.
The neighborhood is very charming as no two homes are exactly alike. There's easy access to Rock Creek Park which has great nature trails and it is next door to Kalorama Park. The area was built during the 1920's so all the homes are quite interesting and beautiful. 18th St one block away is a center of restaurants, nightlife, and activities. There are also lots of neat restaurants on Columbia street as well as Kalorama park next to the condo.
DC is a compact, walking friendly city. You can walk to the White House in less than 30 minutes, most of it downhill. The L2 and 43 buses take you right by the White House in about 10 minutes, while the 42 can take you all the way to Metro Center which is close to Chinatown, the Portrait Gallery, Verizon Center and the mall. The house is located halfway between the Dupont Circle and Woodley Park metro stations and there are 3 Bikeshare stations within 3 blocks (highly recommended way of getting around).
We are super laid back and friendly. Please keep things clean and leave your shoes outside. Please keep it quiet after 10PM on weekdays and 12AM on weekends. If you smoke, please do so outside on the patio. Please help yourself to anything in the fridge or any open bottles on the counter.
Comfortable couch with lots of interesting development, social commentary and current event books to read.
The apt. is very spacious and very close to Adam's Morgan and Dupont. Really enjoyed staying there!
Joe and his roommate are great. They are very welcoming and accommodating. They have a wonderful apartment and a wonderful couch :p. their place is in a great area. Would definitely recommend it. Also, they are excellent tour guides and suggest to you many nice places to go to. All in all, I'd say 10/10.
The location and accommodation are excellent. The communication with the host was perfect and I got nice tips from my roommate (many thanks). I can fully recommend the room and will rent it again when I come to Washington.
Joe was very accommodating and his place was great! Super clean, nice roommate, very welcoming, easy, efficient and the location is hard to beat... right in between Adams Morgan which has tons of great restaurants and bars and also not far from U Street which is one of my favorite areas in the city.
Joe was a great host. The apartment is conveniently located with plenty of great food nearby.
Joe and Mac were very friendly and pleasant. They gave great suggestions on food and were very welcoming.
