This cozy home is perfect for solo adventurers, business travelers, and couples. It's 3 blocks away from the metro and minutes from the Monroe Street Arts Walkway, National Arboretum, Union Market, National Shrine, and many loved local restaurants among other sights and landmarks. There's no a shortage of sights to see and things to do in this city, and my place is located on a quiet block where you can rest well after long days of exploring all that the city has to offer.

The space

The apartment comes with a fully stocked kitchen, a dining and separate living room area, a tucked-away desk that provides for a focused workspace, and a bedroom with a spacious closet.

Apple TV and a Wii are available in the living room for at-home entertainment, and the fire pit outside can be used to warm chillier evenings while enjoying fresh air.

Guest access

There is private parking available directly in front of the apartment for $7/day. If you would like to reserve one of the spaces, please include a request for it in your message when you make your reservation.

Interaction with guests

I like to give my guests space in order for them to fully enjoy the home away from home experience while in DC, but I'm easily reachable via phone call or text when needed.

My friend and I loved our stay at Makda's. We were in D.C for 3 days just to do some sightseeing. Makda's place is a convenient walk to the Rhode Island train station, took us 10 minutes to walk to, then getting around D.C was very easy via their train network. The station is also close to groceries, which was really helpful. Makda was really quick to respond to any messages or questions we had. Would definitely recommend this place if you're visiting D.C.

Makda's basement apartment was extremely clean and had all of the amenities needed for a stay. Having Netflix and Apple TV was an added bonus for quiet evening and the wifi worked great. The entrance is only from the alley which during daylight hours was a non issue but at night I didn't feel comfortable walking alone, but Uber was available and I used it at night which was perfect. The train/bus station was a super close walk. Makda was available anytime I contacted her and very helpful.

I trip was very nice and the Air Bnb is what you pay for!

First time using airbnb and didn't have the best experience. The people upstairs were extremely loud especially Saturday and Sunday and we barely slept because of it. It was also very dark so it's either full darkness or full light no middle ground. No access to the thermostat so it was pretty hot for a night until we got a hold of our host, but other than that it was alright just not what we were expecting.

Makda's apartment was so cute and neat! A perfect weekend spot for two of us! Makda was a wonderful host! She was quick to respond to any questions and was friendly and welcoming. We used Lyft to navigate around the city as we are not exactly pro's at navigating the metro. The place was close to many great places to eat and explore! Highly recommend

Makda was an absolutely amazing host! I booked the place with a check-out and back in again in order to do a weekend in New York. She was really kind in arranging somewhere for us to leave suitcases, saving us from having to drag loads of stuff around unnecessarily. She was amazingly helpful with really, really clear instructions and was so quick in responding to any requests. The place is great - really close to the Metro, a huge supermarket and launderette. The apartment was super clean and little extras (like Netflix!) made it feel really homely. I had an amazing time in DC and this is largely due to Makda's professional and really friendly help! Thank you!

I'm a DC-area native and absolutely love this city! It has so much to offer for the small amount of space it occupies. I'm able to indulge in all of my interests here, from dancing at the weekly drum circle in the summer to trekking through untouched snow to capture a sweet shot of a DC landmark in the winter. I also love traveling to less commercial destinations to experience different cultures and maybe even pick up a few words in a new language.

As a hostess, I keep to myself for the most part, but if you'd like to hang out to exchange stories and traveling tips, I'd be happy to. :)
