Welcome to your sleek, modern, light-filled English basement apartment in one of D.C.'s most diverse, family-friendly neighborhoods.

The space

The apartment is a brand-new renovation of the English Basement in a classic, 120 year-old Mt. Pleasant row house. It can be configured as comfortable, airy two-bedroom, or a very spacious one bedroom with a large living area and dining table (the desk in the pictures pulls out to seat 8). In addition to the apartment, you will have access to a small back patio and garden.

The space is great for families, friends, or colleagues traveling together, as well as solo travelers looking to spread out. If you are traveling with young children we can provide a pack 'n play for sleeping/playing and a high chair for mealtimes!

Please note, however, that there is no TV in the space. We use our laptops and Wifi for our entertainment needs.

Also note that the space is NOT a good fit for parties, or groups who plan to go out on the town until late. We are a rowhouse, with shared walls on both sides and lots of neighbors, and our kids get up pretty early, even on weekends.

Guest access

You will have the entire English basement to yourself, as well as access to the back yard.

Interaction with guests

My husband and I live upstairs with our two young children, so while we lead an active life we are around to help you plan activities or deal with any issues that may arise.

Other things to note

There are steps down to the basement, and, as this is a 120 year old house, the staircase is narrow (about two feet) and very tall people (like my husband) may have to duck their heads through the entry. If you have a very large suitcase or trunk, we can bring it in through the main house.

The place was extremely nice, brand new, very clean. Both beds were very comfortable and the hitchen had anything one may need. The location was great. It was sad to leave...

A friend of mine stayed there while visiting. The place is amazing. I really liked how they redesigned this english basement. Everything was as advertised and there were some great little details around the house that made the stay more comfortable.

It's nice flat located on a quiet street. It's within walking distance of many restaurants and public transportation. If you have a car, parking is tricky.

An amazing spot. So easy to get there from the metro, cute neighborhood, lovely hosts, and the space itself is clean, comfy, spacious and well appointed. Lots of thoughtful touches like a jar of coffee in the kitchen, nice shampoo and conditioner in the shower, etc. Had to travel to D.C. last minute and feel lucky to have found this home.

This place was great and helped make our trip to DC perfect. It is a 5 minute walk to the Columbia Heights Metro, where there are a lot of shops as well. We were able to get our groceries and walk back with no problem. It is located on a quiet street, with very friendly neighbors. The house was very clean and provided a space where our young girls could be separated into a "second" bedroom which made it easier to get them to sleep. We look forward to staying here again on future visits.

Hi there! My husband and I have lived in D.C. for more than ten years, and would love to help you discover our adopted hometown -- whether you are interested in tourist attractions, in town for business, or want to see a different side of the nation's capital. With two small kids…
