I am a teacher in Washington, D.C. I love to travel, cook, watch movies, and be with my friends and family.
The residence is nice in a green environment. We were welcomed by Fungai who is very nice. The location is convenient to visit DC. All you will have to do is to walk to the West Hyattsville metro st through a nice park (15 mn) and take the metro to downtown (another 15/20 mn plus the wait which can take ... 15 mn in DC).
If you arrive at night I recommend to take a taxi/uber from the station. We walked around the park and it looked fine but apparently it is not safe (we asked a police officer). Also, prior to your arrival, you should ask for the appartment number. Especially if you come from Europe and your cell phone is not working (no public wifi in the area either). In the US they don't put the names on the mailboxes nor on the doors !
The room was clean and we slept well in the bed even though it is not so large for two persons (I think it is 130 cm). We had our own bathroom, which was good, and was clean enough. We used some of the kitchen utensils and the fridge, which was fine.
Staying with Shannon and Fungai was awesome! They were welcoming and wonderful to talk to. Everything was accurate regarding the listing and the metro was very accessible. We enjoyed our stay and would go again!
Shannon was an excellent host! She was very helpful in helping us find the place, and was communicative throughout the stay. The place was very nice and clean and I would recommend this listing to anybody! She and her boyfriend provided great takeout suggestions as well :)
Shannon and her boyfriend were very welcoming. We hardly stayed during the day time and mostly had come to the place to sleep but with whatever limited interaction we had, we enjoyed talking to them. The room is exactly what it looks like. It is close to West Hyattsville metro station so connectivity was not an issue.
Shannon was fantastic! The apartment was tidy and comfortable, in a nice neighborhood a fifteen minute walk from the Metro station. Great value for a wonderful room. 10/10 would recommend.
Shanon and her partner were so sweet! When Becky and I had difficulty finding their buidling they came outside and met us on the sidewalk. It was such a lovely stay!
Shannon and her boyfriend are great.
Everything was as described. The neighborhood is nice and quite.
Only 10 min from the metro that gets you to the National Mall.
Parking space available if you have a car.
Definitely would recommend for your Washington visit.
We stayed at Shannon's for a week and although we were not there often (other than to sleep), we enjoyed what little conversations we had with our host. Shannon and her boyfriend were kind and the room was accommodating. The morning mile walk to the metro was lovely and we did uber back from the closest metro station each evening for about $6 each time. We would recommend to our friends.
The room was just as seen in the picture. Shannon and her boyfriend are both really nice people. I would definitely stay here again!
She was really kind. She rode me from station.
She and her boyfriend respected me and kept my privacy. :) Caffe and bus station were near.
Shannon and her partner are very independent people, who were so quiet and respectful at the house, I never knew if they were here or not. They were friendly, clean and made themselves right at home - which is what I hope of all my guests. They would be welcome back anytime and I would highly recommend them to any other airbnb hosts.
Shannon and Fungai were fabulous guests. I only wish we could have spent more time together. It was a busy time for all of us, so quick check-ins were all we could manage. Next time I look forward to hearing more about both, especially Shannon's teaching career. We wish you the very best!
Shannon and Fungai were the perfect guests, super nice and respectful and communicative, no trouble at all. I would highly recommend them as guests.
Shannon was little time at home, but proved to be a perfect host, left the room spotless, I hope that if ever again, come to my house. Thanks Shannon.
Shannon and her mother were wonderful guests, they are really sympathetic and respectful.
