My home is rented full time, and as such is optimized for travelers! I am a full time host, and I take my responsibility to provide wonderful accommodations to you - VERY seriously!
This is a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath (2 full, 1/2 bath in middle floor) in a quiet, safe, family friendly neighborhood. The house includes two flat screen TVs (46' and 36') and has Verizon Fios TV and 50/25 (very fast!) wireless internet. One King sized bed, one full sized bed, and then the third BR includes a Twin size bed, with a pull-out twin sized trundle. Additional beds are provided via Queen/Twin sized air mattresses (provided!) The space would be most comfortable for groups up to 8, but if you are willing too, the space can accomodate up to 11 people, with 5 people staying on air mattresses.
I also have a Keurig, and all the free coffee you could want/need! Plentiful/free/unrestricted street parking is available. Samsung washer and dryer included in laundry closet of off kitchen. My deck also has a 300 square foot deck on the rear of the home, with a grill and chairs. Perfect for unwinding and relaxing after a long day touring the city!
I am located 1.1 miles from the Georgia Ave-Petworth Metro Station, and a one seat ride to everything that the city has to offer! I will do everything in my power to make your stay wonderful, and am happy to accommodate any special requests!
There are some terrific food options near my home, and I will be happy to help you discover these options!
You will have access to the entire home, including kitchen, all bathrooms, toiletries, and anything else needed to have a wonderful stay! There will be no other occupants of the home outside of your group during your stay.
I provide a unique code to the deadbolt prior to your arrival, so late arrivals are no problem. You simply come to the front door, enter the code, and gain access!
Interaction with Guests
I have an electronic deadbolt - you will be sent a unique to you code prior to your arrival. I may be there when you arrive (depending on time and schedule) Otherwise, the house is yours! I am available by cell phone or e-mail, and promptly answer any and all questions.
Petworth is a beautiful neighborhood, with row homes built in the 1920's. Many of my neighbors have been in their homes for 30+ years, and the neighborhood has a small town feel to it, with neighbors saying hello to each other and walking over to chat with each other on their porch.
It is easiest to visit my home if you have access to a car, but with some planning it's also possible to use public transportation to visit downtown/national mall.
Car: Enjoy a spot in myprivate driveway or free, unzoned street parking.
Metro: I am located 1 mile from the Georgia Ave/Petworth metro station (green/yellow lines) or the Fort Totten metro station (red, green/yellow lines). Each of these stations is about a 20-25 minute walk from the apartment. For those who don't want to walk, the Fort Totten metro has $4.50 all-day parking available (free on weekends). The Petworth-Georgia Ave metro can also be accessed with a 10-minute bus ride.
Bus: I am located 2 blocks from several bus lines that go into the downtown area. During rush hour these buses can take a long time to get downtown, so I don't recommend taking them if you're traveling at those times!
Bike: I am located about 4 blocks from a Capital Bikeshare dock.
Taxi: Taking a taxi can be an economical way to access the apartment, especially if you're traveling in a group. Taxis from downtown will cost about $15-$25, depending on where you're traveling from. I often take the metro downtown and then come home in a taxi.
Other Things to Note
Just as an additional bonus, this house has solar panels on the roof, so you are doing good by staying here! Back-up power from the power grid of course, but most power is generated on the roof!
