Welcome to a sleepers paradise! This private room with private bathroom in a basement is cool and dark, a perfect place for a good night's rest. We are also walking distance from the Basilica, Catholic University, and Brookland and Rhode Island Metro.

The space

This private room is in a basement, which makes it nice and dark and cool. The ceilings are low so if you are over 6 feet - you might have to duck.

Guest access

You will have a private exit/entrance through our back patio. You will have access to a washer and dryer.

Interaction with guests

We are a very friendly family, so we are happy to help with whatever questions you might have!

Other things to note

We do have a toddler at home. Other guests haven't complained about his noise level and love his smile! You might hear us getting out of the house in the morning or getting ready for bed at night.

Again, the ceilings are low - so keep that in mind if you are blessed with lots of height.

Emily's place is perfect for an individual or couple looking to visit DC on a budget. It provides an opportunity to make the most of the town without having to spend a lot of money on lodging, so if you want to spend most of your money seeing the sites, this is the place for you. It's a nice bed and clean bathroom with its own washing machine/dryer. It's unfussy living for the unfussy traveler. They're very friendly and chatty people if that's the type of experience you want (which I enjoy) but I also got the impression that if you want nothing but privacy they're really cool with that too. Five minute walk from the Metro.

Emily and her family are very friendly. It was nice to have a floor to ourselves, complete with bathroom, washer, dryer and bedroom. The private entrance was convenient, and it was only a 15 minute walk to the nearest station. As already mentioned, the roof is low, wouldn't recommend for anyone over 6', but it wasn't a problem for us :)

This was a great crash pad for our time in DC. The space is small, but we had the entire basement to ourselves, which we so appreciated after long days out seeing the city. A mini-fridge is provided, and we were allowed to access their microwave and ice as needed. We also had access to a washer and dryer---again, very appreciated as we were there the last 3 days of a 10 day trip. Emily and her husband are both very nice! We heard some walking around upstairs and little bit of baby fussing (or laughing, we weren't sure). The ceilings are low, as mentioned, but honestly -- my husband is just over 6 feet and the only issue he had was hitting his head on the light fixture in the bedroom. We expected a bigger issue that it was based on the hosts description. Also, plenty of parking on the street -- never had a problem getting a spot right in front (or back) of our private entrance.
