Interaction with guests

I am happy to chat with you about the neighborhood, DC, transportation options, what to do, how to get there, etc. I see myself as a host rather than a hotelier.

I have an adorable and highly energetic dog. He loves to play in my fenced yard and he also loves people, so you will likely interact with him during your stay when you're entering or exiting the rental unit through our yard. As such, if you are going to stay here you should be comfortable around high-energy dogs.

Other things to note

I have an adorable and highly energetic young dog. He loves to play in my fenced yard and he also loves people, so you will likely interact with him during your stay when you're entering or exiting the rental unit through our yard. As such, if you are going to stay here you should be comfortable around high-energy dogs.

Arrived late (flight) but Liz made accomodations so I would secure the key without waking up anyone. Questions answered very quickly. Accomodations as described. Good experience.

Had a wonderful stay at Liz's. She has a lovely little apartment. Situated in a charming neibourhood, walking distance to the grocery store, restaurants, coffee shops and of course the fantastic DC transit. Highly recommended!

Lovely apartment, walking distance to Safeway and metro. Accurate to photos and Liz/Curtis were great hosts. Great base for sightseeing all around Washington!

I chose to stay with Liz and Bear during a month long internship on Capitol Hill. Not only did it save me a ton of money, but it helped expose me to an awesome part of D.C. I might've missed had I not stayed with her. The location near the metro stop made it easy to get everywhere I needed to go. Having a mini kitchen was awesome and helped keep my trip cost down. In addition to this Liz is wonderful and so accomodating! She made it feel like my home away from home!

The apartment was cozy and clean and my husband and I felt very comfortable at Liz's place. There was plenty of parking on the street and the neighborhood was very nice.

Great location and perfect for family and couple. We had a great time at Liz's and would recommend to anyone visiting D.C. to stay at her place. PS: Bear is a very lovely dog!

I had a lovely stay with Liz - great communication and very cool apartment. Public transit was easy to access and I drove into DC frequently on the weekends with no trouble. Also very close to a great park - Rock Creek Park. I highly recommend staying here!

Proud DC homesteader who carries my roots in Midwestern hospitality with me as a host and as a guest. I want my guests to have a fantastic stay, and a comfortable place to come home to at the end of each day. 

I have travelled to 40 states and 16 countries and am hoping to add more countries to my list over the next few years. In all of my travels, the luxurious and the not-so-luxurious, I find it's all about the thoughtful, small touches that add up to make a stay really enjoyable.
