The dwelling is in the bottom half of a townhouse (in DC we call them row houses.) It is almost 100 years old- and is sensitive to the use of multiple appliances at the same time. There is no stove, but we do have a microwave, a countertop oven, an electric frying pan, a coffee-maker with Keurig accessories, a crock pot slow cooker, a milk shake maker and more...

Debbie was a wonderful host. This is a perfect spot for one or two individuals in a beautiful neighborhood with easy access to whatever is needed. Would stay again.

Debbie was a wonderful host. Everything was great. We really loved the little patio area, it's perfect for morning coffee and evening chats about your day in DC. The projector room was a great way to wind down after a day of sightseeing. The shower was AMAZING! So many jets of water!!

This was our first experience with Airbnb and we will definitely be using it again. Everything was so simple with Debbie, and the house was beautiful and very comfy. We will definitely be back!

My wife and I stayed in Debbie's apt for 4 days. It's a cheerful stay. Debbie is a great host. She was waiting for our checking in. Sorry we were late than expected as we took the wrong way. We did not see Debbie as she had to go back to work, but we found the light and A/C were turned one to welcome us. Thank you Debbie! We had great communications. Parking was pretty easy. And it's easy to reach national mall by uber.

My husband and I love DC. We enjoy its free concerts, museums and art galleries. We travel a lot and have lived on four different continents. Our favorite place on Earth is Rock Creek Park- less than two blocks from our house. We have met some very wonderful people who offer their homes for Airbnb! We like to get a 'feel' for what it is like to live in other cities and countries and Airbnb homes make that possible.
