Great opportunity to live with native Washingtonians in a friendly and quiet neighborhood. Close to Fort Totten Metro Station. One half mile walk. Off Street Parking is available. . Easy access to Maryland University by Green Line. Easy access to downtown by Red Line. There is a nice park up the street for exercising or outdoor enjoyment.

This is a great option for travelers to DC who don't want to break the bank for a hotel but still want private accommodations. I do my best to provide healthy morning fruits or snacks. Coffee lovers can bring your favorite K cups to use in the coffee machine.

The neighborhood is quiet and historical with important sites in the heart of Brookland and America's largest Basilica at The National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception at Catholic University. Howard University is very nearby as well. Access to the most popular tourists’ sites in DC can be done via the bus which is only a few steps away

The Ft. Totten Metro Station is a half mile away. Grocery store is a 20 min walk (Giant). Located down the block from a park and within walking distance (and well serviced by a number of bus routes) of Fort Totten metro station on the red line which connects in 4 stops to Union station, the mall and all the sights of downtown DC..

There are a couple of nearby restaurants (some deliver) and gas stations. Plenty of street parking so you can leave your car all day and take advantage of DC’s metro system. If you are driving please bring your registration and insurance card so you can get a parking exemption from the local police district headquarters on Georgia Avenue NW.

My family and I will be out of your way most of the time. But I look forward to meeting you, sharing travel stories and hearing about where you are from and what you are looking to experience while you are in DC.
Mornings and the bathroom time may need to be scheduled a little bit, but we are flexible.

Please note: Please leave your pet at home we do not accept pets.

Guest access

I will give you a key to the house upon arrival. You are free to come and to on your schedule within reason. Full access to the room booked and the kitchen and living/dining areas on the first floor. Registered guests have access to the upstairs bath and will share and cooperate in the morning when it is time to leave.

Interaction with guests

I am always happy to meet new people, but my time with my guests will be fairly limited. I have a full time job and a business. I'm really nice when I'm there, but you won't see much of me. You are always welcome to call me or send me a text if you need advice or assistance.

Other things to note

There is a McDonald's Restaurant on the corner as well as a convenience store and a gas station for last minute essentials or snacks. We have a nearby recreation center and Providence Hospital is also within walking distance. We also have a new Walmart for shopping in the area.

I stayed here as a solo, young, female traveller. This air bnb was ideal as it was relatively cheap (but there are a lot of extra charges before you pay!), and the location was good- a short walk to Fort Totten station, from there you take the red metro into the city easily. I stayed for 3 nights, and I have to say I was left alone which I like, but I don't know about others maybe wanting to feel a little more comfortable. Also I wasn't sure who was staying as a guest or who lived in the house! For me I didn't mind that, but for other young girls that might be a potential issue. Overall a cheapish place that has good access to the city, and hosted by a friendly lady!

Jatille, Valida's daughter in law met me and was very helpful throughout. This seems like a quiet neighbourhood and the hosts were great, friendly and welcoming. It was great value and suited me fine.

We had a great stay in Washington with Valida! After a long day of travel we were greeted with a warm welcome and a lovely clean and beautiful home. The house is really close to the bus into the city centre which is great for sightseeing and also some shops and places for food are nearby. The room was clean and bed was very comfortable. Valida went out of her way to make us comfortable and we would highly recommend her place.

This was a great place to stay while in DC, about 6 blocks from Metro. I wasn't at residence a lot. Overall satisfied.

Valida's place is a great retreat when working or visiting the city. The Metro is a 15 minute walk as are shops at For Totten. Valida is very personable and welcoming - she even picked me up from the metro on the way in.

Valida's place is just as described and perfect for a short or long stay.

My family and I love to greet new visitors. You can see pictures of me and my son Jonathan who is my co-host. He helps me host and we look forward to meeting you. We have a ring side seat at some of the most interesting activities in the world here in Washington DC. I describe my self as having a lively personality, I'm witty, beautiful, and an entrepreneur. I like to meet new people, but I'm low on"Social Media", I prefer to live life "Face to Face. Favorite movies? Moonstruck, Strictly Ballroom, The Avengers, Moonrise Kingdom. Favorite TV show DWTS. I want to be the best hostess in DC.
I like to drive. I love going to my Wyndham Vacation Resorts spots.

So far, my favorite travel desination is somewhere in Arizona on the Colorado River below the Hoover Dam. I'll post the pictures someday soon.
