Located in Petworth neighborhood 1/2 block from mass transit (E2/E4 bus). Clean and modern house with all the amenities of home. 10 blocks from Rock Creek Park; 10 minute drive to Columbia Heights and Takoma Park; 15 minute drive to Silver Spring.

The space

Our Brightwood home is located 1/2 block from mass transit (E2/E4 bus) that can deliver you to the Ft. Totten metro (red, yellow, green lines) that will take you to destinations across the city including Smithsonian museums, national monuments, cultural events, and world-class dining. Located 10 blocks from Rock Creek National Park, where you can escape to the woods for hiking, biking, horseback riding, tennis and golf, as well picnicking or barbecuing with family. Situated 1 mile from Takoma Park, 2 miles from Silver Spring, and 3 miles from Friendship Heights. There's a corner grocery store nearby for basics, as well as a few authentic Latin American restaurants within 2 blocks.

This house is spacious, private, and (generally) quiet (it's a row house and we do occasionally hear our neighbors when they are socializing outside). 1500 sq ft home with two bedrooms, a toddler's room, finished basement, updated kitchen with dishwasher, front porch, small back deck with barbeque, and hardwood floors throughout. Washer/dryer, iron, and steamer are in basement. We have central A/C and ceiling fans. Off-street parking available in the back of the house (it's a tight turn off of an alley, but it's possible to park SUVs there). The home has wireless internet but no television.

The house has two bedrooms with queen beds (comfy new mattresses), plus 2 full baths and 2 half baths. We have a comfortable blow-up queen mattress that can also accommodate two more guests. We don't have a coffee maker, but we do provide you with Starbucks instant coffee. And there's a coffee shop around the corner.

We're teachers who love to travel and meet new people. You will find our home clean and inviting. We hope you love our home as much as we do.

Elizabeth was a wonderful host! She send us lots of great information about the house, neighborhood, transportation, etc...and also greeted us at the house. The location was (URL HIDDEN) easy drive downtown and to the Univ of Maryland for our daughters graduation. The house was warm and comfortable and had everything we needed for our family. Thank you!

Elizabeth was fantastic and communicative from the outset, making a point of figuring out what my travel plans were and how she could accommodate my friends and I. Her house is beautiful and spacious, and we found everything we could possibly need. We had a chance to chat before she took off, and she made me feel so welcome to make the best use of her home as possible. We had no trouble getting around DC from her house, and found the neighbourhood safe, quiet, and charming.

We found the house easily. Even though, Elizabeth was not at the property when we arrived, she sent us the key ahead of time so we had no problems. She was very accommodating from the very beginning. She left all useful information and contact information so we could reach her.

We had an enjoyable trip to DC for business and this was the perfect place to stay. The house is clean, spacious, updated and accessible with numerous modes of transport within close proximity. The owners are very accommodating to needs. There was no problematic issues during our stay. Definitely a 5-star rating and good value.

The house was wonderful! Elizabeth and Brian provided detailed information about the house and the neighboring area so we could find all the conveniences we needed, and it was so nice to stay in a place that really felt like a home away from home rather than just a small and stuffy hotel room. I will definitely look for availability at their house for my next trip to D.C.!

We loved staying here! My family and I drove up from FL. Elizabeth was quick to help guide us on routes via the Metro etc. It was a unique way to experience D.C. The house was clean, charming and inviting. We would stay here again.

Elizabeth's home is wonderful ... I can't recommend it highly enough! It has the character you would expect in a home built years ago but with all the modern conveniences and fresh look due to an extensive renovation. The beds are so incredibly comfortable that after our first night I let Elizabeth know we would be leaving a little later than planned on our last day because we would want to sleep in later!! It is very roomy and is in a great, safe location, just a mile from Ft. Trotten metro station (which has parking) and just a couple of miles from Catholic University of America.
