My space is a truly beautiful, recently renovated (8/2014) house with exposed brick walls and hand-carved hardwood floors. It has a state of the art kitchen with granite counters, a Nest security and heating system, and three floors of ample and unique living space. It is right off of H street Corridor--as close to Portland, Oregon (from where I hail) as DC gets, and 15 blocks from the nation's capitol. It is $80 addition for the second bedroom.
Private bathroom with tub, private bedroom, kitchen is shared but in all honesty I do not cook and feel this beautiful kitchen is going to waste so please make meals here! I encourage you to use all of the shared space, and will stay out of your way. Washer and dryer are shared.
I am happy to interact as much or as little as guests would like. Initially I will operate under the assumption that guests would like to have their space, and treat the situation as a 'Bed and Breakfast' scenario. That being said I do offer a welcome packet with things to do in DC, if you are interested.
H street is amazing--it is full of live music and fun coffee shops, it is a very artistic and free-spirited neighborhood; akin to El Born in Barcelona or St. Martin in Paris. I also love the NE/SE area because we are so close to all of the monuments.
Yes H street trolley just opened! Beyond that I have an extra space in my garage if you wish to rent a car. Two blocks away there is a city bike share if you want to hop on a bike and ride 15 blocks to the monuments.
There are two cats that live in the home with me. They are terrified of people (sadly) so they will not bother you.
Private bedroom, private bathroom with full tub, a parking space, the living room and the kitchen are shared, but I rarely cook and encourage you to do so...someone should use this beautiful kitchen! Washer and dryer are shared. I encourage you to use all of the 'shared space,' when you stay with me, it is your home too.
I am happy to interact with you as much or as little as you like; I let my guests set the tone of interaction. That being said, I offer a welcome basket with suggested places to visit and restaurants to dry in d.c. I try to run my place like a true Bed and Breakfast, which also means coffee/Nespresso and breakfast for you in the morning.
I live with two cats! They are never allowed in the guest rooms, and I do have allergy medication (Benadryll and Claritin) for people with allergies, but if you have severe allergies another place is probably better for you.
Must be out of bedroom and bathroom by 12:00pm on day of departure, as arrival times are 1:00pm or later and I need to clean the bedrooms and bathrooms for future guests.
No parties without going through Air BnB
No additional guests allowed to stay the night without going through AirBnB
No smoking indoors.
Must set alarm when leaving the house.
Shoes off (this is not mandatory if you are uncomfortable with it, however it is preferred.)
Hey! I'm Claire and I am a free-lance editor and manage a band in Washington, D.C. I purchased my first house in the very lovely H Street area in the summer of 2014.
