The space

COMMUNICATION: We strongly prefer to communicate via the Airbnb messaging system. This helps us keep organized and on top of Guest inquiries. (If you are a current or future Guest and it's urgent, of course please feel free to also use our direct contact info.)

FYI ABOUT OUR CALENDAR: We take our calendar management very seriously. As a separate, furnished, private apartment used exclusively for Airbnb, our Airbnb calendar accurately reflects ALL bookings and availability. All that said, we're always OK answering preliminary inquiries regarding availability :)

OVERVIEW: A quick walk (2.5 blocks, 5 minutes) from the Georgia Avenue-Petworth metro on the Green and Yellow lines, this newly renovated private 1 bed/1 bath English basement apartment has all the comforts of home -- including a fully outfitted kitchen - and can serve as your city retreat within minutes of all DC has to offer. Whether you're a visiting professional or on a family vacation to DC, this apartment checks all the boxes for self-sufficient, private city living: comfortable living, equipped kitchen, cable/high speed wi-fi, full laundry, private entrance, and convenience.

In addition to the private bath and bedroom, the unit features an open floor plan with large living room, breakfast bar, and large kitchen.

SLEEPING: The separate bedroom includes a real QUEEN bed (firm mattress, sleeps 2), large closet, and basic furnishings (nightstand and light, shelving, alarm clock). The living room Crate & Barrel couch is also a DOUBLE sleep sofa (sleeps 2). We also have one QUEEN inflatable AEROBED (sleeps 2).

BATH: The full private bath is located off the bedroom and features a tiled shower with rainfall shower head. A point-of-service gas water heater means unlimited hot water.

KITCHEN: The kitchen is outfitted with a full-sized stainless steel fridge, dishwasher, gas stove, built-in microwave, and garbage disposal. The kitchen is stocked with most everything you need (utensils, cups, plates, bowls, pots, pans, food storage/wrapping material, etc.), as well as toaster oven and French coffee press. (If you're missing a particular specialized kitchen implement we're happy to lend if we have it upstairs.) NOTE: We currently use the unit's freezer for overflow (and sometimes a drawer in the fridge) BUT the entire fridge and freezer are there for your use. We're happy to make room for your freezer supplies. Just let us know!

LIVING ROOM: Living room furnishings include comfortable seating (a Crate and Barrel double-sized sleep sofa), a 32" LCD TV with cable and online Netflix, HBO, and Showtime.

LAUNDRY: The unit has its own full-sized washer and dryer for your exclusive use.

INTERNET/CABLE TV: Free wifi and cable TV, including Netflix streaming, HBO, and Showtime.

CENTRAL HEAT/AIR CONDITIONING: Private controls for heat and central A/C ensure your comfort.

PRIVACY: You have your own front/back entrances with large, secured sheltered patio entrance (e.g. good for lockable bike storage - this is where we keep our family bikes, too).

KIDS: We're parents, we get it. If you need something (outlet protectors, pak-n-play, high chair, etc.) let us know in advance so we can try and make traveling with little ones a bit easier on you.

MOBILITY/ACCESS: There are 6 steps from the sidewalk up to the house and another 3 back down to garden level. The unit's open living space provides flexibility, however the bathroom's smaller size and standing shower might make it a challenging arrangement for those with mobility challenges. If you have specific questions, we are happy to answer in greater detail to help you with your decision.

HOSTS: We live upstairs and are generally available to answer basic questions, orient you, offer directions, etc.

TIMING: Check-in is 4PM, check-out 11 AM. However, schedules permitting we will try to be flexible to accommodate special requests (e.g. earlier arrival). Ask in advance.

We urge you to read our reviews to help make sure we're the right fit for you!

This was the perfect place for me to stay at for a week long work trip. I travel a lot and it’s tough not feeling like you’re coming “home” every night. This place felt like home. I loved the neighborhood. Diverse, easy access, quiet, and close to quaint neighborhood restaurants…

This was my first Airbnb experience and it was a nice one! Jen's place is cute and more spacious than I thought. We fit 6 people comfortably. It's an English basement unit which meant low ceilings which meant our taller group member hit his head a few times. The unit is on a ni…

Jen’s home was wonderful and she was incredibly accommodating. The pictures were accurate and the location was perfect for reaching all the downtown hot spots. If given the opportunity I would definitely stay again.

Had a wonderful time in DC. Location is only a few blocks from wonderful Metro subway system, grocery store and restaurants. We stayed for a week and every day was full of things to see and do. We enjoyed our stay immensely.

Space is great and clean, and could fit 5 of us comfortably with the air mattress. Very close to the metro station and Jen was very accommodating to our check in and check out requests!
