Fabulously located, clean and comfortable basement 'in law suite' - as private as your own apartment, with separate entrance! Fully equipped one bedroom, with queen bed, and ensuite bathroom. Additional double/full sleeper sofa in living room space can accommodate 4 to sleep (for short stays only). Cable TV, wifi, equipped kitchen. Main house overlooks park, and is 5 mins walk from Capitol South Metro on the orange/blue/silver line, accessible to all DC's sights and museums. Walking distance to the Library of Congress, the Capitol building - to the north; the Nationals stadium and newly developed Waterfront to the south etc.
You will have 'the run' of the basement. Although connected to our house, when staying as our guests, you are entirely private, and have use of a separate, lockable entrance/front door. Opposite our house is a wonderful public park (grass and trees), for lazing, relaxing, playing ball...
Interaction with guests
We work during the week, but will be happy to make ourselves available if we can in person to answer any questions. We'll either be upstairs or a phone call or email away, if needed.
A great and friendly neighborhood, easily accessible to all of DC's sights, many on foot, others by Metro, which is 2 blocks away. Within very convenient walking distance are plenty of independent restaurants and watering holes (Tortilla Coast, Sonoma, Goods Diner, We the Pizza, Capitol Sushi, le Bon Cafe etc) and some well known 'chains' (Sweetgreen; Starbucks, Pret a Manger). Eastern market is only 10 mins walk away - with its famous market hall, weekend flea/artisanal market, etc and plenty more shops and eateries. The Nats baseball stadium is 15mins walk in the other direction. And Congress is a few blocks north on our street. We overlook Providence/X Park - a wonderful open green space - and are 5 mins from Garfield Park playground for kids and a local, well stocked minimart.
Capitol South metro (blue, orange, silver lines) is 5 mins walk. Buses are just a tiny bit further running along Pennsylvania Avenue. There is a Zipcar a block away. And a couple of Bikeshare locations within a few minutes. And lots of amenities and sights within walking distance :-). If you are driving, it is on-street parking, and we have a 'guest parking pass' to allow your car to park in the residential parking zone.
Other things to note
We do have children :-). And this is a basement unit. So do expect a few creaks above. On their more rambunctious days, you may hear the "pitter patter" of their feet above, when they are home from school, and before they head to (quite early) bed. Rest assured, the nights are peaceful :-)
No pets please; no smoking; no guests other than those agreed - and never more than x4 people. One or two people preferred, owing to size of space, and 4 people only for short stays (please enquire).
