Simple, clean, and very private studio room ideally located in 16th Street heights. Easy commuting to downtown DC, Rock Creek Park, Friendship Heights/Chevy Chase and Silver Spring.
Please check pricing for the specific days of your travel, as it is often lower than our the standard listed rate!
While the linoleum floor adds an old-school 80s charm (and we even have an N.E.S. for you to play with), the apartment is a cool and inviting space. You have a private entrance so you should feel free to come and go as you please.
We will do everything we can to make your stay with us enjoyable and pleasant. Based on guests feedback, we have also added a small dining table and chairs!
The apartment is very self sufficient. If you need access to anything else, just let us know.

We have a completely traditional DC romance: we met online, went to happy hour, followed it up with brunch, then 6 months later due to love (and a crazy rental market) moved in together, and 6 months after that we "accidently" bought this house- which we hope you enjoy as much as we do!
Alex: I'm originally from KY, which is completely evident by my sense of southern hospitality, good manners and per Shelby, my slow talking. I studied at Georgetown University and never left, and now 16 years later I'm considered an honorary DC local. I love a good drink, talking to everyone, and bells (yes, bells).
Shelby: I'm originally from Pittsburgh which is the #1 best city ever, next to DC (and yours of course). I've been in DC about 8 years, moved here a few years after graduating college for a job and because of friends peer pressure, and fell in love with the city. I have an unusual love of goats, an Italian grandma that can't cook, and drinks more hot tea that you probably think is humanly possible.
