Description

The space

Great place to enjoy your travel to the nation's capitol. Lots of tree-lined streets and beautiful flowers in the neighborhood. Minutes away from the Tidal Basin and its cherry blossoms. Comfortable, sunny bedroom with private bath in three-bedroom renovated house on tree-lined street.

AMENITIES
* Guidebooks and maps provided
* 2 Metro SMART Trip cards available for use
* Two blocks from Metropolitan Biking Trail
* Sheets, pillows, and towels included
* Fresh coffee each morning

I've been decorating over the last few months to make this a better place for you to stay. There is now a wall-mounted television, desk and chair, as well as lots of modular furniture that provides storage and is easy to move.

The security deposit is primarily for the house key. As long as you return the key, and cause no damage to the house, you get the money back.

Please allow at least 48 hours advance notice before requesting a reservation.

We will share the house. I'm hoping to have periodic guests who can enjoy its beauty and comfort just as much as I do. I look forward to meeting you.

The neighbourhood

Brookland is no longer DC's best-kept secret. This neighborhood gem boasts tree-lined streets, friendly neighbors, and convenient access to downtown DC. New shops and restaurants are opening, making it a better and better place to live.

Brookland is known as the home of Catholic University, the National Shrine, and the only Home Depot in the District. It's a very diverse, residential community with tree-lined streets, several bus lines, and two Metro stations on the Red line. You can get just about anywhere in 15-20 minutes (Capitol Hill, U Street, Columbia Heights, etc.).

Getting around

* Metro Red line stations (Brookland-CUA or Rhode Island Avenue)
* Metrobus: Routes D8 and G8 stop across the street, Route 80 a few blocks walk
* Capitol Bikeshare station three blocks away
* 15 minute walk to Metro (quick access to downtown, National Mall, and Smithsonian)
* Free street parking

Other things to note

** Convenient, safe, and affordable option for radiology residents attending AIRP in Silver Spring. **

Washington, District of Columbia, United States · Joined in February 2012

In DC, the first two questions people ask are:

- Where are you from? (few native Washingtonians in these parts)
- What do you do? (We've got one of the highest rates of professionals around, and everyone cares what you do).

So, that's where I'll start. I am a native New Yorker who has been living in DC for four years now after stints in Philadelphia and Jersey City. I'm a former elementary school teacher and instructional coach (which means I taught teachers). Right now, I run my own educational company.

But my passion is yoga. I've been practicing it for ten years, and am now a certified teacher. That's where I love to spend most of my time, especially since I opened a studio in my neighborhood in fall 2014.

Where I was born, and what I do for work are only a part of who I am. What's more important is that I am very focused on wellness - physical, mental, spiritual, and interpersonal. I do something every day to grow in these areas. Some days, that means practicing yoga and meditating. Other days, I go for runs. Most days, I drink a fresh green juice and eat a mostly vegetarian diet. I enjoy spending time with my friends, particularly over good food and a glass of white wine. I have a bookcase on every floor of my house - an indication of my love of reading.

I've adopted this saying of Nora Roberts:

"If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it.
If you don't ask, the answer is always no.
If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place."
