There is an HD smart TV with cable, Netflix and HBO and wireless internet. It will comfortably sleep up to 4 people. Empty closet and dresser for your clothes (no one lives here). There are two private entrances and the apartment is completely separate from the rest of our home. The kitchen was renovated in 2014 with stainless steel appliances, full sized oven/stove, fridge, microwave, kettle, French press, plates, utensils, pots, pans, linens and other essentials. There is an assortment of tea and coffee. We provide a pantry full of snacks, place settings for four and all the essentials. There is a full sized futon in the living room. Traveling with kids? We are happy to share toys/games/activities for kids of all ages and the fabulous Washington DC With Kids guidebook. We'll also be happy to share our favorite spots to take kids around the city.
You are welcome to access our gated backyard, grill, fire pit and picnic table, which seats six. There is a kiddie pool and sandbox plus plenty of toys for little ones.
We live upstairs and are always happy to give recommendations on fun things to do in the city or tips on ways to get around. If you'd prefer a quiet visit, the apartment is completely separate from the rest of the house. So you don't need to see us any more than you'd like!
