3rd floor bedroom with PRIVATE bathroom/shower. Modern townhouse, close to DC Metro. Wi-Fi/TV in room. Walk to restaurants/shopping. Street parking available. Kitchen/fridge available to share.

We have a friendly, well behaved dog (Belle) who loves people but will not be in your private space.

The space

Cozy third floor location offers awesome privacy. Tons of storage space if you need it. Two big windows with adjustable "black out" blinds so you can choose to "let the sunshine in" or snooze late in comfortable quietude. Third floor has it's own climate control. Adjacent room great for a yoga mat or two. Full closet with all the hangers you'll need. Comfy reading chair and a selection of books and movies to enjoy.

Guest access

You can roam the whole house and share our great kitchen, fire up the grill and enjoy the front porch or backyard at your leisure. Plenty of room to store food/drinks. Whip up an espresso or a hot cup of tea.

We are keeping our bedroom, bathroom and office on the 2nd floor private.

Interaction with guests

We're new at this, but our intention is to be available to the extent our guests are interested in hanging out. Happy to share our experience with the city, where and how to go, what's new, what's old and good, who's playing where, etc.

Most likely we will be around during our guests' stay but will make sure everyone has the space they want/need to get the most out of their stay.

Other things to note

We have a well behaved dog who will be an enthusiastic part of the welcoming committee but will otherwise give you your space (unless bribed with a treat). The Room is located on the 3rd Floor which requires walking up 3 flights of stairs. This is probably not suitable for anyone with any ambulatory difficulties. Our house is not "Child Proof"

This has been one of our favorite AirBnb experiences so far! The bedroom is really an entire suite on the third (top) floor of the house, with a private bathroom as well as a separate sitting room with a futon and desk. There was plenty of space for the two of us to spread out and unpack for our 8-night stay. Chris and Jean clearly put a lot of effort into making sure that guests have everything they might need. For example, there were plenty of clean towels, extra blankets, toiletries, etc. stocked in the guest room closet, so we could get what we needed without having to ask. The bed was incredibly comfortable, and the bedroom was dark and quiet so it was easy to get a good night's sleep. Chris and Jean had breakfast supplies set out for us every morning, and plenty of options to choose from (bagels, fruit, eggs, homemade cranberry bread...). They also provided a cheese plate and other snacks in the evening. Their dog, Belle, is very friendly and well-behaved. Chris and Jean are also very friendly, and we felt right at home from the minute we arrived. They spent a lot of time chatting with us, and made sure they were always available if we needed something, but also gave us plenty of privacy. This is a great location in Petworth, and if you're driving, there is easy street parking in front of the house (we never had trouble finding a parking space on the same block). We'll definitely stay here again on future trips to DC.

Chris and Jean (and their lovely dog Bella) are amazing! Easily one of the best Airbnb experiences we have had. Their place is beautiful and they made us feel so welcomed. The breakfast every morning was perfect and was such a relaxing way to start our day. The room itself was comfortable, clean and impeccable. The location was amazing- quiet, not to far from the metro and a quick 15 minutes to all the main tourist spots. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect place, or hosts, to stay with in DC.

We had a wonderful time at Chris and Jean's. Everything was as they described it plus more - snacks and water in the room, a metro card to use, the table set for continental breakfast in the morning, hair dryer, etc. More that what we were expecting. We would stay there again without hesitation.

We enjoyed staying in Chris and Jean's home very much! They were gracious hosts, and they had helpful advice for us as tourists. We appreciated the spacious third floor we had to ourselves, complete with great books, television, coffee machine, and small fridge. We were happy to be able to use the wash machine and dryer, especially after our clothes got soaked in a rain storm. We got every day off to a good start, too, with the tasty continental breakfast they provided. We liked the neighborhood. It was fun to stay in a row house for the first time, and we were able to enjoy a variety of restaurants nearby at the end of the day. Our thanks go to Jean and Chris for their thoughtfulness and goodwill. They contributed greatly to the happy memories we have of our vacation in Washington, D.C.

Chris and Jean were exemplary hosts in every way and made my wife and I most welcome. Their house is lovely and the top floor space they provide is spacious, private and very comfortable with every possible amenity provided. The location is excellent and only a short walk to the Metrorail which takes you into the centre of Washington in about 10 minutes. Jean even provided us with money loaded rail cards which was a really thoughtful and useful gesture. It was a pleasure to stay with them and they were lovely people and made our three night stay very enjoyable and memorable. We hope to return.

Chris and Jean's home is spectacular. With no other Airbnb guests that evening, the entire 3rd floor was ours. Chris was very helpful in showing us around the house and telling us about DC. There was even a nicely laid out table for a continental breakfast in the morning. The house is very clean. There were fresh linens and towels available. We could have even used the washing machine if we needed. Definitely would have loved to stay a little longer. The home is located in a stellar neighborhood with a lot of food and great coffee. Would recommend and book again.
