Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Shauna was very friendly and helpful. I was on a busy work trip, so I didn't spend a lot of time there, but the room was very comfortable. The location was great, just a quick trip on the Metro to get to Capitol Hill and lots of good restaurants within walking distance. Highly recommended!

  • Shauna is a great host. Room is comfortable and in a great location. Definitely going back!

  • The house is in a great location; approx. five minute walk to the Metro and only a few stops from downtown. U Street has many great cafes and restaurants and I was able to try a number of them during my stay. The cab fare to the house from downtown is very reasonable and it's a great base from which to explore Washington.

    The house is nicely decorated and the bathroom dedicated to the guest bedroom is really lovely.

    Shauna was travelling so I wasn't able to meet her, but she was in contact via text during my stay and provided me with recommendations and assistance.

  • Shauna's place is very convenient - 63 bus just outside the door and a few short blocks from U Street metro (10th St exit). Shauna helped with directions and made me feel quite welcome. The private bath is new, with a large shower and plenty of hot water. I was in town for business. The bedroom has a sizable work surface that allowed for catching up in the evening,

  • Shauna and Stephan were great hosts for our time in DC, bed was comfortable and the private bathroom was a welcomed amenity, not to overlook the free parking. The house was conveniently located to Transit which made all our city travels to the touristy areas super easy.

    Thanks again, Brad & Shawna

  • Shauna and her boyfriend Steve are really nice and friendly and great hosts. We enjoyed to stay at their house and talk to them while having breakfast or in the evening.

    The house is lovely, although a bit chaotic. Unfortunately, it doesn't really look like in the pictures on airbnb, there is especially more furniture in the room what probably is due to the fact that Steve moved in. Nevertheless, it is really nice there, the room and bathroom were clean and everything is decorated lovingly. It is in a great neighborhood (next to U Street and 14th Street).

    All in all we really enjoyed our stay there and can only recommend the apartment!

  • Shauna and her boyfriend made us feel super welcome in her cute home. They're both delightful and warm and went out of their way to accommodate us, loaning me her wellies on a rainy day and giving us awesome tips on where to bike.

  • Shauna is a nice host, her house is very clean and tidy with four cute cats. one of the cat accidentally went out of the house and Shauna did not blame me for that. Definitely will stay in her house again for next time.

  • Staying with Shauna and Stephen was lovely! Shauna was quick to reply the day of my arrival and was welcoming as all get out when I finally showed up. The music venue where the show I came to see was being held was a short walk away, and everything I wanted to do in DC during that weekend was close by or metro-accessible. The cats were probably my favorite part of my stay, honestly. They were lovable and friendly, and as an animal lover I was right at home amongst so many. :) The pictures were accurate and the space was nice, though I believe Shauna and Stephen were in a bit of a transition, so it definitely looked that way. No worries though, things were clean and easy to find, everything worked out well!
