Close to dining, bars, playground, pharmacy, and organic grocery. Eight blocks to the metro (15 mins walking or 5 mins by city bus), and only 3 metro stops on the Red Line to the U.S. Capitol.
My family and I moved into this 1931 classic Brookland row house in 2014 and have been lovingly updating it, amidst having a few kids, in our unique and exciting city. Your space is completely private in the basement of a single-family home with a private entrance via our backyard. We have lovingly furnished the space, including one-of-a-kind presidential portraiture adorning the walls by homeowner and artist, Eric.
Your private living space includes:
- Queen sized bed with luxurious bedding and two reading lights.
- Large closet with lots of storage.
- Full bathroom with shower & tub, toilet, vanity with ample storage, mirror with medicine cabinet, 2 full sets of towels, towel warmer, hairdryer, 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner, and other limited toiletries.
- Open living room space with couch, table with seating for 2, TV with built-in DVD player, and access to our Netflix subscription.
- Kitchenette with plenty of dish ware, utensils and pots and pans, microwave, toaster oven, small fridge with freezer, 2 burner electric cooktop, mini Keurig Coffee Maker, electric tea kettle, and filtered water pitcher. Kcups for Keurig, tea bags, sugar & milk provided!
- Wifi, boardgames, city guide books, and Washington D.C. themed DVDs!
- Private entrance at the rear of the house. You may access this from the front of our house by walking through the side yard. Or, you may enter through the back via the back alley. The alley can be accessed from Michigan Ave NE, just east of where Michigan and 14th St NE intersect.
- In the upper right kitchen cabinet you will find manuals for most of the various appliances (heating/cooling unit, Keurig, cooktop, etc) should you run into any issues. And of course, you can reach out to us as well for help.

Climate control: There is a dedicated heating & cooling unit in the apartment with remote control. Remote control can be found in the upper right kitchen cabinet.
Parking: free parking is available in front of the house and does not require a DC parking zone sticker.

Interaction with guests
For standard questions and requests, we're available by phone and text between the hours of 9am and 7pm. For urgent or emergency issues or questions, we're available 24 hours a day. We'll also likely bump into each other as everyone comes and goes and will be happy to chat!
Other things to note
* This is a family home and you will hear us above you. It is also an old home and the floor above you does squeak. We will always do our best to keep noise at a minimum but if you are looking to sleep in past 8am, this may not be the place for you. We are generally very quiet from 7:00PM - 7:30/8:00AM. Thank you in advance for your understanding!
