Amazing location with public track, playground, pool, basketball and tennis courts across the street -- easy landing spot to explore the city. You'll have the basement floor of our row home & private bathroom and laundry. We are a young family who loves DC and we own a local coffee shop.
You'll take over the entire bottom floor of our row house - there's a double bed, plenty of closet space, and we can provide a double sized air mattress or pack and play crib if you need. We also have a futon that can pull out into a bed, it's a little short but comfy. We can provide a baby gate, high chair, and books and toys for any little guests.
It's all one room, with a laundry and bathroom space adjacent. There's a back door out to the fenced in backyard, up a few stairs so you have privacy. Dogs welcome (plus we have dog treats).
Fresh linens, space heater in case you're chilly, free laundry with iron/ironing board, wifi, nespresso machine (coffee!!), hot water heater and tea, and private bathroom with toiletries and a hair dryer. Our house has a Little Free Library in the front yard! Take or leave any books you want during your stay.
Plenty of free street parking (we can share our guest permit with you for a deposit if you're
here on a weekday and there's free spots on the street on the weekend). Mini fridge/freezer and microwave provided, and some drinks, snacks, mugs, silverware, and plates too.
There's a few metro cards there for your use and some Washingtonian magazines with tips about the best dining, walks, and other adventures in DC. We can likely be flexible about check in and check out times, or at least hold your luggage while you're off exploring.
We'll close the basement off from the rest of the home so you have your own personal space. Entry is through our front door, the stairs to the basement are through the kitchen.
Please note the room does not include the use of our kitchen or common space.
You're also welcome to use or front porch or (small) back yard - the yard is fenced in- but no smoking on our property, even outside.
Interaction with guests
If we're in town we'll make sure you're set up, have what you need, answer a few questions about DC and the neighborhood, and otherwise be out of your hair. We live right upstairs but will give you your space (and vice versa!).
Other things to note
We have a dog, but he's never in the basement unit.
Space: The main house is not included in the booking. No smoking of any kind or marijuana allowed. We want to make sure to keep the house safe and secure, please make sure you close and lock the door behind you when you exit.
Parking: We can provide a visitor's parking permit with a $50 deposit for the duration of your stay- we don't want it to walk off. You only need this during the week, weekend parking is free in the non-metered spots on our street. Parking rules will be on you to be followed according to the signs (there's street sweeping hours Mon/Tues through October).
Guests: No guests without our permission, and no overnight guests that aren't included in your booking. Just saying this cause we had someone show up with a few extra people once!
My husband and I have been proud owners of our very own D.C. row house since Sept. 2014. When not running a coffee shop we like to be outdoors and figure out how to be parents - our daughter was born in June 2016.
We are huge fans of D.C., happy to share some intel on our top picks for food/drinks/touristing/getting around. We love staying at Airbnbs when we travel too.
