Please note: the back door is currently being used as an emergency exit only. Due to issues with flooding in the past, we have placed sandbags against the door on the outside. Our drainage system has since been repaired, but unusual volumes of rain have prompted us to leave the sandbags as a safety measure, so the door cannot be used for anything besides emergencies.

Guests have ample storage space, with access to two closets, a dresser, and multiple tables.

We are a friendly, welcoming family of three with a small child. We occupy the space directly above the English basement. We respect our guests' privacy, but we are also available to help with amenities or any other needs you may have.

The apartment is located in the heart of Bloomingdale, one of DC's trendiest up-and-coming neighborhoods. It is situated directly next door to Rustik Tavern, a popular neighborhood restaurant/bar, and Unified Scene art gallery/improv school/theater. We are directly across the street from the Red Hen, Showtime Bar, the Boundary Stone Public House, District Yoga, Aroi Thai, El Camino, Crisp Cafe, and Grassroots Gourmet Bakery.

We are also a short walk from several other restaurants and neighborhood cafes, as well the famous U Street Corridor, a popular nightlife and entertainment destination.

Every Sunday from May through October, Bloomingdale hosts the Bloomingdale Farmer's Market, one of the top ten Farmers' Markets nationwide, located three blocks from the apartment.

The G8 Metrobus stops right in front of the house. This bus can take you directly to and from the Shaw-Howard Metro Station, a half a mile (or a 10-15 minute walk) away.

The house is also a 2 minute walk to the 90 Bus, which runs through the U Street Corridor and Adams Morgan.

Evelyn's place was absolutely lovely! It's much more spacious than the photos suggest. I stayed here alone and felt like a queen. The interior is very quaint and charming, with plenty of towels, plates, pillows, etc. needed to make a place homey. The neighborhood surrounding the home is wonderful. There are several charming restaurants, coffee shops or neighborhood stores within a block radius. I often uber-pooled from here to the Capitol area for $3 or less. The metro is also very convenient and a short walk away. Highly recommend!

I stayed at Evelyn's apartment for nearly two months. It has everything you need for a longer stay. There is a full kitchen, a washer and dryer, a comfortable bed, and many other things. Also, even if it is a basement apartment, there are many windows, and it is not dark. The host, Evelyn, is very helpful and reacts quickly if something comes up. I highly recommend staying there. In addition, Bloomingdale is a very agreable neighbourhood. There are many good restaurants close to the apartment. On the other side of the street (1st), there is a bakery where you can get coffee and croissants in the morning. The neighbourhood is lively, and can be noisy at times, but you can't hear anything from the bedroom.

Evelyn really is a great host. She is very friendly and always accommodated all our requests and needs. Communicating with her was very easy. The apartment was very clean and surprisingly spacious. Yes, it is in the basement, but it is not that dark. The Wifi worked well and is fast. Can definitely recommend Evelyn's place!

Evelyn and her family very nice host, she wasn't there when i arrived but her assistant help me and she always has been there when i need her, she showed me the neighborhood, and walked with me around, she actually treats me as sister and i really appreciate how great host she was. the place was very cozy and clean, closed to the children's hospital about 20 min walking or around 5 $ by uber. the only 2 issues in the place were : 1st i can hear the footsteps of the people upstairs through the ceiling but it didn't bother me much because they sleep early and i came late most of the time from work, and the other thing was the internet connection in the first few days which was fixed later and i had no more problems. i also extend my stay in the apartment 12 days more .. I highly recommend to stay in her apartment and she was very nice and helpful host .

I had an absolutely wonderful time during a 3 month stay in Washington, DC. Evelyn was so warm and welcoming when I arrived. She gave me great advice about the city, and made sure the apartment was clean and well stocked. The photos are very accurate. All I can add is that there is a walk-in shower to the right in the bathroom. This is a full fledged apartment, great if you need to settle down for a short/long term stay. Bloomingdale is a cute DC neighbourhood. It is lively yet quiet, very friendly, and has a great sense of community. It is full of good restaurants (of varying price range), cafes, bars, small business, and a Sunday farmers market (though it stops in winter). It is about a 10-12 min walk to the Shaw-Howard Metro, which is just a short ride to the National Mall. I have to say, my stay in DC was definitely enriched by my relationship with Evelyn and her family. They were always very kind to me, showed me around the neighbourhood when I arrived, and made sure I wasn't alone on holidays. They were also very considerate about how their daily activities might affect my stay (e.g. potential noise from personal guests or playdates for their little girl). I whole heartedly recommend a stay with Evelyn. This is a very friendly and loving family and I am so happy I chose to stay here.

Evelyn User Profile

I am a friendly, outgoing businesswoman and mom. Since 1992 DC has been my home. I am originally from New York City, and my parents are from the Dominican Republic.

My husband Gabe, a Native Washingtonian, and I live in our rowhouse in Bloomingdale with our 3-year-old daughter and our dog Sofi. We live right about the English basement. We also spend a lot of time at our South Florida house.

Although we are generally quiet people and we rarely have parties, we have a very active three year old daughter (almost four on Christmas) that likes to round around. We also have a small Cairn Terrier that sometimes goes wild barking. We do our best to manage noises coming from our place to ensure you have a wonderful stay at our apartment.

We love hosting our guests and love being part of the Airbnb community. We look forward to hosting you at both of our listed properties. Thank you for selecting us as your host.
