Description

The space

Convenience, Comfort, & Accessibility!
This space is great for professionals or students who want a central location but also the comforts of home. The home has a walk score of 90!
Great heat in the winter and central AC in the summer. Top-notch appliances, as well as FIOS TV with more than 600 channels and the best wifi (Fiber) connection contribute to the comfort of your stay. The bed s a nice japanese futon that sits right on the floor giving comfortable field of view to the large Flat Screen TV. You get CNN, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)BC, ESPN and 500+ more channels in your nice secure private flat.

Your room is furnished with a double bed, a spacious closet with hangers, and a desk with chair & desk lamp for your workspace. There is also an additional dresser in the room for ample storage of your clothes and other items! Hardwood floors throughout in this renovated accommodation.

Guest access

Your private room is located on the second floor of a large brick colonial home. Enter through the front/kitchen door and stairs will take you up to your room. Two windows look out onto the quaint street.
You have access to the large, spacious, and professionally cleaned bathroom with large shower and double sinks. The bathroom is shared by 2 other tidy individuals, and is located just down the hall from your room.

*You also have access to the fully-equipped kitchen downstairs - but please clean up/wash dishes after yourself.

Guests also have access to the washer and dryer located in kitchen. Detergent is also provided for your use. We kindly ask you do not wash/dry clothes after 10PM to limit noise - thanks!

Interaction with guests

I try to respect the privacy of guests so other than meeting for checkin/out, we keep interaction to a minimum. Available however by phone/text or email should you have any questions or concerns.

I have noted the check in time starting at 6PM, but more often than not I am flexible... Unless a guest is leaving the same day, in which case my cleaning service must prepare the room, you can generally check in earlier.

The neighbourhood

The Ashton Heights neighborhood in Arlington is a safe and well-connected area. The room is located inside a renovated and restored colonial brick home. You can walk or bike to the many, many nearby restaurants, coffee shops, and stores. Clarendon's nightlife scene is 5 min away by car and is popular among young professionals. Just down the road, there are several grocery shops, drugstores, places to grab a bite, etc. You can find anything you need within a short distance and yet feel comfortable and relaxed "at home"!

Getting around

The room is extremely accessible with Virginia Square and Ballston metros half a mile away (1000 yds). 20 minutes from the Whitehouse. You can easily connect to DC to see all the monuments, museums, and sites.
There is also a 4B bus stop outside the house that connects you without delay to Georgetown. Ample Parking is available free of charge on the side streets surrounding the house.

Other things to note

Longer stays are welcome. Please inquire for discount on reservations over 2 months.

No (unannounced) guests. We really appreciate the quiet. We have a roommate who is a PhD student and is so respectful of the quiet-house rules, so let's all respect the noise level. In return, you will be able to enjoy a serene setting :)

Bill's place is exactly as advertised. Rooms are clean and spacious enough. TV in every room with a premium cable pkg on top. Access to washer and dryer and to a huge kitchen is great to have. Bill goes out of his way to make sure his guests are comfortable and happy with their stay. He communicates well and answers questions quickly and sufficiently. It's a bit of a walk to the closest metro station, but takes no longer that 10 minutes, perhaps 15... All in all super!

Enjoyed my time at Bill's place. The room was nice and quiet and clean. There are plenty of nice restaurants nearby. The walk to the nearest metro is picturesque and I felt safe doing so at all hours of the day/ night. There was a nice big tv in my room with cable television. Thanks again, Bill!

House is good and comfortable. I could not gel with host. Also it's very quiet place.
Bill User Profile
Response from Bill:
Prafulla was a good person. I got a little defensive, and perhaps even rude, as he was staring down my cleaning lady while she cleaned the place. Anyway we are all human and he is welcome back.

My stay with Bill was great! The basement apartment had everything I needed for a very comfortable stay. There was plenty of street parking and Bill was very flexible with accommodating my arrival time. I highly recommend to others.
Bill User Profile
Response from Bill:
Nic, thanks for the great response. We appreciate it. Also, thanks for booking a continued stay in our other flat. From what i understand, it is actually a Garden Level Apartment as it has two large windows and its own private entrance. Also, thanks so much for recommending it to others. Text me should you need anything additional. Cheers, Bill

I am a college student who had a 4 week internship in DC and needed an affordable place to stay with a short commute. My stay met all expectations and should the need arise to once again stay near D.C. I would be happy to seek the same arrangement

Response from Bill:
Thank you sir and good luck at Amherst. If you come back for a summer internship you will enjoy a nicely air conditioned flat. Best wishes
