Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
A cute studio apartment in the basement of a newly renovated home. Guests have a private entrance with their own private bathroom. You also have use of a full-size washer and dryer. Other amenities include an honor bar stocked with beer and wine, an arcade style game with over 200 popular titles including Ms. Pac Man, and coffee/tea.

Please note that we live upstairs, but the space is private. It is separated by a stairwell and a locking door. It is comparable to a hotel room, but nicer.

The space

Your health and safety are our top priorities. Even before the Coronavirus outbreak, the entire apartment is cleaned thoroughly after each guest. This includes sanitization of all surfaces and machine washing of all linens, including the bed comforter. While still providing plenty of hand soap, we have also added hand sanitizer to the space. We expect this will foster a healthy space which allows our guests to enjoy their stay to the fullest.

As further precaution, we have added an air purifier to the space. It's very quiet and cleans all of the air through a HEPA filter every 30 minutes. We've also added one to the main floor of the house. In addition, we have replaced our furnace filter with one rated MERV-14, the highest rating available for home use.

We have taken the lessons we've learned from being AirBnB guests and created a comfortable space with lots of extras. They include:

Honor bar with beer and wine
Multi-Unit chargers on each side of the bed
Full array of TV choices through Sling and TabloTV, including HBO and Showtime
Keurig machine with coffee and tea provided
Soap, Shampoo, and Conditioner in shower
Towels, washcloths, and some toiletry items
Coded lock for private entry
Microwave Oven
Amazon Alexa
Arcade style machine with over 200 titles (Ms. Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, etc.)

The unit is in a quiet neighborhood in DC. The Metro is a 15 minute walk, bus stops are nearby, and Lyft/UBER are generally available within 5 minutes. The bustling H Street corridor is nearby where you can sample a variety of cuisines and nightlife. We are also close to the Mall using public transport. Further, there are 3 large National Parks within a 5 minute walk if you would like to enjoy a quick hike. The parks contain deer, wild turkeys, and other wildlife.

Our neighborhood is mainly working class and there is public housing nearby. We consider it safe and friendly. The community is tight-knit and is historically African-American. We love our friendly neighbors! The house is secured with a Nest alarm system and both windows in the apartment have sensors. There is also a security camera just outside the basement door, another on the second floor of the house recording the back yard, one covering the side yard, and one for the front yard. There is a camera in our living room, but there is no camera in the Airbnb space.

Washington, District of Columbia, United States

Our neighborhood consists of mostly working/middle class families. Behind the house, and across the street, is public housing. We find the neighborhood to be pleasant and quiet. There are 3 large National Parks within a short walk. They are great areas for day hikes and viewing all sorts of wildlife, including deer and wild turkeys.

The neighborhood is quiet, consisting mainly of families. Most of the homes are duplexes, like ours.

I enjoy traveling, socializing, reading, crossword puzzles and being active. I am a considerate guest, always making sure I keep my host's property neat and free of clutter. I am very considerate of other people's belongings. My favorite trip was one to Istanbul in 2011. An amazing city filled with wonderful people. I tend to be logical in thinking, but understanding of other's perspectives. I am generally considered kind, outgoing and friendly. I'm also told that I have a great sense of humor. When traveling, my accommodations are where I stay the least. I like to spend most of my time in my host city.
