This bright and spacious 2 bdr, 1.5 bath home on lovely residential street is half block to metro and 5 blocks to award-winning restaurants, cafes, and pubs of Barrack's Row/Eastern Market. Enjoy back deck, 58-in. TV, private parking and much more!

The space

My house is a sunny and bright row house with big open space living area and 58-inch TV looking out on back deck and yard. Given my proximity to public transportation, you don't need a car here but if you have one there is a parking spot out back.

The house comfortably fits 3 (2 in master, 1 in guest) but others could be provided with blowup mattresses.

Guest access

Kitchen with microwave and coffee maker, washer-dryer, hair dryer, soap and TP, towels and linens, 2 TVs, DVDs, Sonos wifi-based sound system, iron and ironing board, umbrella.

Interaction with guests

There may be initial interaction with guests depending on their arrival time. I also rent just a room (the guest bedroom) under a separate listing so to see reviews of my place look for that listing under "shared room," "Comfort and convenience on Cap Hill."

Other things to note

My house has two self-contained apartments--mine, on the upper two floors, and my tenant's, on the first floor. There is a common front door but separate interior doors, separate laundry facilities, etc..

Lora is an amazing host. She is warm and quick to respond to inquiries. We did not meet her as she was away for the duration of our weeklong stay but she made us feel welcomed from the outset. Our flight in was delayed by 2 hours and we arrived in the dark and in the rain to find that she had left us a plate of delicious muffins and milk and juice in the fridge. What a Godsend! The next day Lora checked in with us to make sure that we had everything we needed and to give us directions to access her parking spot which we needed to use for our rental car later in the week. (The offstreet spot is in a brightly lit alley just outside her back gate.) Her apartment is in a building with lots of character and is absolutely immaculate, spacious and beautifully furnished. It is in a great location, literally 2 minutes away from the Potomac Ave metro and about 2 blocks from 2 supermarkets - one located to the north of the apartment and the other just south of the metro. The kitchen has everything you need and the beds are super comfortable. It rained a great deal during our stay and we took advantage of the extra umbrellas she had and the laundry facilities. Lora left very clear instructions on everything and we greatly appreciated her prompt and helpful response when we had a minor medical emergency. She was very kind and concerned. We loved our stay at Lora's and cannot speak highly enough of her and her apartment.

This was one of my best Airbnb experience! Lora stayed in communication after accepting our stay and up to our actual visit, including great directions, and she made sure she was there to greet us when we arrived after an 8-hour drive. She checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed during our stay. The place is even nicer than described, beautifully decorated and renovated, with super comfortable beds, a lovely back deck, and great bathroom, kitchen and laundry facilities. The Capitol Hill location is also great, with the subway just half a block away, two grocery stores within two blocks, and lots of great restaurants on nearby 8th St. (now known as Barracks Row).

We loved our stay here! Warm, cozy, in a building with lots of character. The location was very convenient, just a minute or so of walking to the closest metro stop and also easy walking distance to lots of great restaurants (we particularly enjoyed Balkan food at Ambar) as well as the Eastern market. There were lots of thoughtful touches, like extra umbrellas which came in handy on a rainy day. Lora was also nice enough to let us use her parking spot for our rental car, which was very convenient. I only wish we stayed long enough and had nice enough weather to enjoy the back deck. We would definitely stay here again!

The house is very good located and has all essential things, which you can need. We three felt there very comfortable and at ease, just like at home. Lora was always very friendly and responded very quickly. During our stay in the house for 6 nights we had no complications. Everything worked very well. I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay.

Lora was very accommodating and met me when I got there. She showed me around the house, and made sure I felt comfortable. The space was beautiful and spacious. It felt like my home. Hopefully if I am ever back in the city, Lora will let me stay again.

Lora is sooo nice! She answered my phone in the midnight when we just arrive. Her house is clean, comfort and has everything we need. Metro station is just one block and supermarket is just two and a half block. We'd love to stay there again!

I stayed with my wife and two dauthers, there is a lot of space for the whole family. Very convenient with the Potomac subway station at walking distance and Eastern market just one stop. The place was very clean and instructions were clear.

Lora User ProfileLora is a superhost.

I'm friendly and independent with a lot of friends around the country and world. I am close with my family and know all my neighbors. You are more likely to see me at the gym than a club, but I do like to go to dinner or movies or shows with friends. I am somewhat fanatical about baseball. I love learning new things, whether it is from people, newspaper articles, books or film.
