This Host committed to Airbnb's 5-step enhanced cleaning process.
Feel like a DC insider in this Mount Vernon Square Historic District, classic, new row house near the Convention Center. The Lower Unit is decorated with a collector’s eye—some things primitive, classic vintage, one-of-a-kind, and dime-store chic.
“Door hardware is 20th-century Eastlake, plus art and vintage Oshkosh luggage tower are all original!”
– Lovelyn & Sean, your host

I'm a Washingtonian—born and reared. After traveling to many of the world's major cities, I still consider my hometown one of the MOST beautiful. I'm also a sign language interpreter by profession, but a designer/art collector at heart. My Jamaican husband, Sean, and I have been married eight years and are the best fit ever. (How did we get to be so fortunate?!) Recent obsessions are coffee, vintage luggage, and antique Eastlake door hardware (of all things!). Before that, it was sterling teapots and fountain pens. Admittedly, vintage objet d'art make my heart beat just a little faster. Sean loves great food and road trips! Mostly I'll be communicating with you, but Sean is a superior wingman, handling many of the other property management needs. I believe, "Everyone should eat and drink and find enjoyment for all his hard work. It is the gift of God."
