Full closet and storage space (a nice empty trunk), desk and an antique full Jenny Lind bed with temperapedic mattresses (sleeps 2).

Quiet, peaceful, pastoral and yet SOOO close to everything. Metro, Buses, Shopping, Dining!

Interaction with guests
We will be here to greet the guests but pretty much go with the "mi casa es su casa" after that point. We also work just across the street so we are always available.
What do we love about our neighborhood? Everything! Transportation, shopping, eating, community, entertainment . . .
Easy access to all public transportation. We sold our car after living here for a while because it just sat!
Family from Washington, DC with a daughter who is currently volunteering at an orphanage and school in Kenya. Another son, a writer and animator, who is studying at UDC and works at Regal Cinema in Chinatown. And yet another son who is attending Duke Ellington School of the Arts here in DC. Maureen (the mom) is a musician, singer/songwriter and pastor along with David, also a pastor. They are actively involved in the city and have several activities that involve feeding the needy families and homeless in the DC area. The house holds many artifacts and items of interest from their visits to Ghana, Kenya, Moscow and other fun places. Maureen collects cheap snowglobes. Not the expensive, nice ones. . .the cheap gas station ones. Her favorite? A snowglobe from Air Force One. House contains two vegetarians and three omnivores (5 omni's including Jane and FuFu, the dogs). Surprisingly, the family finds that DC is a great place to raise aware, inquisitive, artistic, independent kids. So what if none of them know how to drive a car? And, FYI, when we travel, we now use AirBNB. Not a commercial, just the truth.
