Each guest has their own unique code which ensures that you are the only one with access to the unit during your stay. (You can even pick your own code.)
Kid-friendly. We've child-proofed this home. Breakables and dangerous items have been moved out of the little ones' reach. We've provided two easy-to-set-up Graco Pack 'n Play cribs for bedtime as well as baby gates to prevent access to the stairways. Two bathrooms have a low-profile tub/shower combination for an easy bath time. We provide an umbrella stroller to make getting around town with the little one easier.

This is a totally private, independent rowhome with four separate and dedicated entrances. Guests are welcome to enjoy the entire home as well as the front yard and small rear brick patio.
Interaction with guests
We enjoy sharing advice on visiting DC and we’re happy to answer any questions about the home. Otherwise, we prefer to provide guests their privacy. We love living in DC, especially in this house, but we travel a lot and want others to enjoy it while we're away.
Other things to note
A nearby passenger train runs during the daytime as early as 6:20 AM. It's not something we get complaints about, but nonetheless we want our guests to be informed about it as it could be a disturbance to some. At night, the area turns quiet and peaceful to let you rest and reflect on the day's activities.
This is two separate apartment units in the same home adjoined by an interior vestibule. You do not have to go outside to access the other unit.
