Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Shauna was a great host - she provided us with metrocards, maps, and was very responsive to our inquiries. Our travel plans changed a few times and she was very accommodating of the changes. Overall, we had a good experience but the room we stayed in was not what we were expecting based on the photos, and the room faces a somewhat noisy street.

  • Lucky Shauna was touring Europe but Stephen was an excellent host in her stead. The room and bath lived up to the description on their airbnb page. The location was great--just a 7-10 minute walk from the U Street Metro. On U Street are any number of restaurants, pharmacies, convenient stores, etc--everything a visitor would need. I would recommend their place to fellow travelers.

  • I had a great stay at Shauna's, she was very helpful, provided me with metro cards, maps, and fed me when I just had a few minutes between my arrival and a meeting in town. The bedroom is comfortable and her two cats are adorable.

  • Both Shauna and her home are really nice. She has everything you need there and is also really helpful with answering any questions and giving suggestions about the city. She lives a short walk away from the metro and had a nice area with off street parking which was good for me. Highly Recommend

  • Shauna is super! Her home is really lovely and comfortable; great shower especially. Super friendly cats and a great room with morning light. Shauna put me at ease immediately and even offered me delicious food and drink when I arrived in late. I'd stay there again in a second!

    February 2014
  • Everything was great! Shauna is a welcoming, engaging and fun host. It was always accessible fro questions and super helpful with tips. She has a beautiful house and made us feel very at home. Located close to attractions, groceries and restaurant in 14t street it was a perfect hub to visit the city. I would highly recommend folks to stay at Shauna's place.

  • It was an unspeakable pleasure to share this space with Shauna and her two cats over the course of a week. It was a breeze to communicate and get in touch with Shauna, and she was a gracious and accommodating host. The house is a quick walk to the U Street Metro station and other points of interest.

  • Shauna was really great and always stayed in communication with me to make sure I was having a good time and not getting lost. The room was really nice with a comfortable bed and had a nice view overlooking the street! The Metro station was also very close, only about a 5-10 minute walk from the apartment along with a lot of places to eat / drink that are open late! All the famous landmarks are only about 15 minutes away on the train, I absolutely would recommend this place :)

    January 2014
  • Shauna was a great host! She was very friendly and inviting during our stay and it was quite comfortable at the house. The bedroom and bathroom were very nice and the location of the house was very convenient for traveling around DC. We really enjoyed our stay with Shauna and the kitties!!!

    January 2014
  • Shauna was an excellent hostess. I requested a stay only a day before my arrival. She responded quickly and went out of her way to meet my needs. Shauna's home is spotless, warm and inviting. Walking distance to Howard University or U street neighborhood, including metro. FYI - she does have a couple of personable cats. I only stayed 1 night but definitely willing to return.
