Guests are supplied linen and basic hygienic products.

The café also has a dining area, desktop computer & printer. Don't delay-book today!

The space

The vibrant 'Marigold' bedroom is located on the 2nd level of our single family home and is ideal for couples, voyagers and business travelers. We make sure our guests feel right at home with lots of homey amenities. The bedroom provides a private, cozy setting with lots of natural sunlight, a full sized bed, workspace, 32" flat screen TV, cable and WiFi. The bedroom also has fresh towels & washcloths, an iron/ironing board and yoga mat for stretching.

Guests have access to a full bathroom (2nd level) and the powder room (main level). Please note, this space may be private OR shared amongst guests if both bedrooms are occupied. As a courtesy, immediately upon arrival, guests are made aware of the presence of other guests.

The washer/dryer and laundry supplies (located on 2nd level) are available for guest use. Please drop $2 per load in the jar sitting on top of the washing machine to help offset expenses.

For your convenience and safety, there is plenty of free street parking in a well-lit area just steps from the front door.

Guest access

In addition to your private bedroom, you will have access to a half-bathroom, living room area and 24/7 café. In the café you'll find a compact fridge, full-size microwave, desktop computer and printer. Complimentary breakfast items and snacks are provided on a daily basis.

Interaction with guests

During your stay, the extent of all interaction is completely up to you. All communication is conducted thru the AirBnb messaging platform. But, we are always available via telephone, text and/or email to answer any questions, make suggestions, and/or respond to any emergencies. As a backup, we are fortunate to have the help of a very reliable co-host, Pam.

Other things to note

During the day our loveable, yet energetic Border Collie 'Roxy', will spend her time in a separate area located on the main level of the home or in the backyard. In the evenings, Roxy can be found in the backyard exercising or spending time with us on the couch. For guests who prefer NOT to interact with Roxy, please let us know in advance and we will take the necessary steps to respect your wishes.

In accordance with Airbnb standards and expectations, guests should be aware that our living room is equipped with an electronic video/audio capable surveillance device. Due to our busy schedules, oftentimes we are unable to greet guests upon arrival. The common space we allow to be shared by our guests is also our home. In our absence, the device gives us peace of mind and a sense of security to be connected "in-real-time" from anywhere, anytime. Please note: we do NOT record guests' activity.

Would give this more than 5 out of 5 if I could. Great attention to detail - very comfortable room. Very welcoming and organised. The cafe was a great idea - water cooler, coffee machine and plenty of breakfast foods - very original and really adds value to the stay.

We loved our stay at Debbie and SK's beautiful home! The house was very clean and organized, and they had a variety of snacks and a cold water machine available for guests in the cafe which was very nice and convenient. Debbie and SK were both very friendly and made us feel welcome in their home. We really appreciated the basket they provided with snacks and clean towels, as well as the guidebooks of DC they placed in the room.

Debbie is a true hostess with the mostess! Had a warm greeting upon arrival and oh my goodness; every detail and thoughtfulness made me fall in love with her home more with every encounter. I instantly felt at home and loved the zen vibes radiating within. Is there something you forgot? Or something you haven't thought of yet? Trust me when I say that she beat you to the punch, in a good way! To come up with the 24hr cafe is clever. I enjoyed waking up and coming downstairs to music playing softly in the background. Lots of easy breakfast options, along with snacks on to go! Also, there is a dog that resides in the household and if you decide to meet Roxy, please dedicate 10-15 mins to warm up to her. She's curious, playful and ecstatic when it comes to meeting new friends-- as all dogs are! Highly recommend the stay at the Mowatts! Thank you Debbie for your ray of sunshine!

Debbie and SK were great hosts. From the moment we stepped in the house, it was inviting and comforting. Debbie was there to greet us; access in and out of the house was very easy. The home itself is extremely comfortable and you get a sense of privacy, even if you're sharing the house with them. Beyond the necessities (which were all awesome and clean), they had great amenities, such as a snack/breakfast bar with many different options, a dining area, and a living room area downstairs that they let us use for when we needed to practice music (we are travelling musicians). The house is peaceful and radiant. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to explore DC, but not be completely inside the city.

Greetings! My name is Debbie and I was born and raised in the Washington DC area. Those who know me best say, "I've never met a stranger" and I'd have to agree. I have a passion for hosting, entertaining and learning new things. My husband, SK (Jamaican native), I and our fun-loving Border Collie 'Foxy Roxy' occupy Mowatt Manor. We are extremely easy-going and approachable.

During your stay at Mowatt Manor, the environment will be comfortable, peaceful and quiet. We firmly believe quality accommodations should NOT break the bank - with that in mind, we have done our very best to ensure your stay is affordable without compromising an ounce of quality.

We thank you for checking out our listing and considering us for your lodging needs. It would be our pleasure to host you and hope to make your acquaintance soon.
