Recently renovated downstairs space! Now a gorgeous private bedroom + bath suite. Sleeps 1-2. (1 on futon & 1 on air mattress.) Kids & pets welcome! Only a 10 minute walk to the Fort Totten metro (red/green/yellow)! Ideal for short-term stays for travelers & tourists.

The space

Gorgeous renovated basement suite with large window and loads of light, flat screen TV, ventless fireplace, and Jacuzzi tub! The red futon in the photo sleeps one person comfortably (or two, if the second person is a child and/or small). I also have an air mattress if you have additional guests. There's also plenty of room to sent up a pack n play if you have a baby.

Guest access

The suite (room and bathroom) will be completely yours. It is accessible through the first floor of the house, so we will use the same (front) door. You will enjoy the front porch with swing and back yard patio!

Interaction with guests

My housemate (Becca) and I will be in and out, just living our lives. I love meeting new people and am happy to interact with guests and tell you about DC, but am also happy to leave you alone if that's what you prefer. :)

Other things to note

I have a 4 year old adorable beagle named "Goobs." Yes, that's her real name. :) Friendliest dog you'll ever meet and will likely roll over for belly rubs upon meeting you!

Laura was really great about communicating with me, especially since I booked the airbnb with short notice. The place was really clean and I wish I had spent a little more time since the jacuzzi in the bathroom looked awesome!

Laura was a wonderful host from beginning to end. She communicated promptly before and throughout our stay even though she was traveling. She left us clear and detailed information about the house and the neighborhood, including names of people to contact in case of emergency or anything else she might not be able to handle from where she was. Her house was exactly as she had described it and she even had a welcome gift waiting for us! She gave us the opportunity to reduce the fee for taking care of her garden. This was the first airbnb experience for both her and us and it couldn't have been better at least from our end. We did our very best to make sure that we were equally thoughtful guests.
