The space

We have a hotel-style private basement with a guest room and private bathroom partitioned from the rest of the house. You have your own private entrance to come and go freely with easy access to parking as well as public transportation.

Guest access

You will have private access to the basement bedroom and bathroom. There is reliable wireless internet. We have added a mini-fridge and morning breakfast amenities just like a hotel.

Your booking does NOT include access to a kitchen or our section of the house so the ideal guest is a business traveler or someone who does not want/need to cook beyond using the mini-fridge and boiling water for coffee or tea.

Interaction with guests

I am a Washington area native so happy to email or meet with you to share suggestions for sightseeing, getting around town, top neighborhood restaurants and bars. If you prefer to keep to yourself and have a totally private stay, that is fine too but we are available if you need any advice.

The neighbourhood

We live in a very friendly neighborhood. My favorite part of living here is that we are on a quiet street with easy parking but we are only a mile away from two hopping sections of Arlington with a wide variety of restaurants, bars and cultural activities.

Getting around

•There is a 16Y bus that runs into DC (ending at McPherson Square) during commuter hours every day. You can pick up the bus at the Southeast corner of 2nd Street South and S. Courthouse Road.
•Clarendon Metro is the closest metro station and it is about 1.25 miles away or about a 25 minute walk.
•Uber is generally cheaper than cabs and frequently used by DC residents
•Arlington Red Top cab is also very reliable, especially when you need to schedule a pick-up in advance. Ph(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)

Other things to note

We live just upstairs so it is easy to coordinate if you need anything.
