Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: My name is Lois Houston and I am originally from Philadelphia (The City of Brotherly Love). I have thoroughly enjoyed living in Washington, DC for over 25 years and plan on retiring here. I continue to enjoy the tourist sites and the many interesting and historic places that Washington DC and nearby Virginia and Maryland have to offer. I love bumping into famous people here like Senators on Capitol Hill and even see the President's and Vice President's motorcade racing through the city. Since this property is conveniently located near the METRO, it truly simplifies travel to the numerous sites. For example, the White House, The Smithsonian Museum, The Kennedy Center, The Spy Museum, Mount Vernon and countless other places. My desire is that my guests will experience the joy that I have experienced, while staying in a very comfortable home. My desire is to provide an immaculate home with fine accessories at an affordable price. My ultimate goal is that my guest will consider staying in my home each and every time their visit brings them to the Capital City. Therefore, I warmly welcome the opportunity to receive honest feedback, via e-mailf from every single guest that enter my home. Of course I encourage your reviews also.

Why the Owner Chose Columbia Heights:
Washington DC has been my home since 1986 and I do enjoy such a transient city where one has the opportunity to meet so many people of so many diverse backgrounds. I take great pride in living in The Capitol City where one has the opportunity to bump into law makers, senators, diplomats, students from all over the world and many other interesting people. My 20 plus years living in Washington DC has provided me the opportunity to provide a comfortable home in a convenient location at a reasonable price.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This Home is equipped with the following amenities: Iron and Ironing Board, Shopping Cart, hair dryer, coffee pot, toaster, microwave, few periodicals (compliment of the owner other valued guests), umbrella, fine china and many other items for your convenience. The home is located on a residential street that is conveniently located only one block away from a vibrant commercial area. There is a Marshalls, Target, Star Bucks, Ruby Tuesday, Five Guys, Day Spa, Radio Shack, Federal Express, Staples, Hair Salon, Sports Store, The Washington Dance Institute and other places of interest. The home is located on a major thoroughfare that is heavy with traffic heading downtown DC in the mornings yet it is a street that grows quiet in the evening and night. There is a lot of foot traffic with friendly neighbors who walk their dogs and many cyclist who utilize the bike path. The Columbia Heights Metro is located about two and a half city blocks from this location. It is a 5 minute walk (or less) from the apartment to public transportation.
