Enjoy our fun, light-filled basement apartment w/private entrance. Located on a tree-lined street in hip Petworth - just 12 minutes walk to the metro and near tons of new restaurants on Upshur street! The newly renovated one-bedroom apartment has a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable queen sized bed, washer/dryer, and free off-street parking.
We just finished renovating our 85 year old row house in DC's Petworth neighborhood. Since we love our house, and look forward to hosting people, we've taken care to include all the amenities we could think of. The completely remodeled one-bedroom apartment has a private rear entrance, full kitchen, waterfall shower, washer and dryer, queen-sized bed with high-quality linens, and a pull-out couch in case you need to fit two more. And, with separate control of heating and air conditioning in either room, you can make sure that everyone is comfortable. We also provide a private wi-fi network, and wall-mounted flatscreen TV with NetFlix, Hulu, and Showtime.
You will have full access to our basement apartment, and shared access to our private back yard, which has a sitting area and a grill.
We live upstairs, and since Brady is working from home this summer, he'll be happy to check you in, and get you oriented to the neighborhood. Otherwise, we can be easily reached by phone, and are always happy to do what we can to make your stay better. And though we've installed sound insulation between the floors, since we do live in an 85 year-old house, you may hear us walking around from time to time. Also, we have a dog. His name is Cooper. He is awesome. You might meet him if he is outside with us in the back yard.
So we can help you and other guests thoroughly enjoy your stay, we have a just a few rules:
-No parties, and please give us a heads up if you plan to have more than 5 people in the apartment.
-Smoking or burning candles is not permitted.
-If you spill anything please clean it up, or let us know so we can make sure it doesn't stain.
-If anything needs to be fixed, let us know, and we will take care of it ASAP.
-No persons other than those indicated on the original booking are permitted to stay in our house.
Ultimately, please respect our space and care for it as you would your own home.
My wife Jen and I are both mid-career professionals in the International Development sector. We work on public health projects in various countries in sub-Saharan Africa and Southern Asia. We are both returned Peace Corps volunteers (Ghana 03-06 and Kenya 06-08) and met while working on the Guinea Worm Eradication Program in South Sudan.
Accordingly, travel is an integral part of our lives. We love to learn about new places, and can think of few better ways to do so than by staying with people from the places we are lucky enough to visit. We also enjoy showing others the secrets of our hometown. Over the last four years, we have made Washington DC our home. And while there is so much to do and see in this city, even more cool stuff lies just beneath the surface.
