The space

Come stay with us in my lovely Victorian style home in Historic Takoma Park in D.C. I am renting out the entire basement of the house. The basement has it's own private entrance that opens into the garden. It is a full apartment with a spacious living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom with plenty of closet space. There is a large plasma tv in the living room with cable and if you are bringing a computer I have wireless internet available.

There is a washer and dryer in an adjoining room of the basement that you are free to use (although I do ask ask that if you plan on doing more than a load or two to buy your own laundry detergent).

The house is in a safe, quiet and friendly neighborhood with shops, resturants, a library, and tennis courts all in easy walking distance. I am located a mere four minute walk from the Metro Red Line Takoma station making travel to the surrounding D.C./ Maryland/ Virginia area a breeze.

I allow pets on a case by case basis - just let me know and we can work something out.

Please absolutely no smoking in the house.

I will respect your privacy while you are staying with me and will not go into the basement apartment. If you make new friends while here that's great - but I would ask that you do not bring other people to the house.

If you have questions please don't hesitate to ask me.

Loved the location! Very close to the subway. Nice and comfortable space. Had everything you might need. Comfy bed. It’s a basement, so it doesn’t have great ventilation. There was a strong musty smell when you walk in. The AC works well but it’s a bit outdated. The decor was ver…

This basement unit was exactly what we needed. It’s perfectly located on a quiet street in Takoma Park, very close to restaurants, shops, and the metro station.

The neighborhood is very quiet and nice. The place is a nice set up for an overnight stay. The only problem I had was cleanliness. There was black hair in the kitchen sink and in the bathroom on the floor.
