I have a graduate degree from a leading university, love the city and the mountains, and am professional, present, aware, and helpful. I was born in New York City, raised near the city, went to college in Burlington, VT, and lived in Alaska, Wyoming, Montana, Utah, and took many trips to San Fran for business and beyond. I currently have clients in my day job in Colombia, Florida, New Mexico and beyond. I welcome people from ALL nations, ALL religions, ALL family types, in different stages of their life (students, newlyweds, professionals, travelers, retirees, etc) and/or travelling with relatives, friends, spouses, kids, relationships etc! My style of hosting is I leave the house the way I would want to find a place to stay when I am traveling. I care a lot about details. I want my guests to be happy and comfortable above all else. The upfront cash-flow allows me to take bigger risks when choosing to work with new start-ups in the environmental market place. This is my primary residence but I travel frequently for work and spend time with my boyfriend in Northern Virginia. After a year of hosting, I have dealt with almost every situation you can imagine. Every day so far, I still feel like it is a tremendous opportunity and a gift. I do not take your choice to stay with me for granted. I am very open person and love hosting people of different cultures, subcultures, religions, ethnicities, gender, family types, traditional and untraditional partnerships etc. I've taken two college semesters of American Sign Language (ASL) and can finger spell pretty well mixing in more traditonal ASL. Gallaudet University students, alumni and family are welcome. I consider it an honor and a delight to host you plus your friends, partners, your professional service animals, and family in my home. Thank you!
TM purchased this House in 2007
Why TM chose Barney Circle
This property is only 15 blocks from the US Capitol. It is 3.5 blocks (7 minutes walking) from a metro station which sits on three major metro lines (Silver, Blue, and Orange). Union Station is less than 10 minutes away and DCA Reagan International Airport is only 15 minutes away. The house is on a charming block with a cupcake and pretzel shop around the corner and a major grocery store--Safeway only one and a half blocks away.

Fantastic property in an ideal location.
We recently stayed at Tiff's fantastic property during our visit to Washington DC. The house is beautiful and comfortable, ideally located for the metro, buses and supermarket with a varied selection of excellent restaurans within walking distance. Tiff was very welcoming and helpful and was at hand if we had any queries. It's an ideal location for exploring the city and provides a beautiful home from home retreat in the evenings in a very friendly neighborhood. I can highly recommend a staying at this property for your visit. Thanks Tiff for everything, much appreciated.
Love the Location
Cozy 2.5 bedroom but enough room for 4 teens + mom. Walking distance to Metro, restaurants. Close enough to ball park and Capitol for some to walk to like I did. Loved the house and DC. Can't wait to go back with someone who can keep up with me.
Tiffany was such a great host and made the experience awesome. So easy to get in touch with and the house was great!
We had a wonderful trip. The host did everything possible to make our trip perfect. We will return to this house the next time we come!
Very convenient to all the must-sees and must-go(s)
Tiffany was very easy to work with and timely in her replies to our queries. She worked with us on our late check-in and early check-out. Snacks were provided on our first day and she was cognizant of the fact that my two teenage boys had severe nut allergies. There were even fresh flowers to welcome us. The metro cards were a thoughtful gesture and we used it a couple of times by adding $ to it. The parking permit she secured for us for a very reasonable one-time fee was awesome - we just parked our van in front of her house for the most part and used Uber - it was very convenient and probably comparable to taking the Metro. The pretzel bakery was a hit with our family - breakfast there and then dinner with pretzel bread calzones fresh hot off the oven - they had drinks and coffee (hot and cold) too. We already expected the place to be small being in the Capitol area but it was charming and really we had enough room. Our two teenage boys ( 14 and 16) did not want to share a bed so the 1/2 room worked perfectly. The 1.5 bath was nice with the four of us. Being on the second floor, the bedrooms tended to be warm in the evenings but the ceiling fans helped and there was an a/c unit in the front room in addition to the central a/c. It was hard for me to get up in the bed but only because I am short. A step-stool would have been nice. I am assuming it was also her residence since she had a lot of personal items in the rooms and bathroom but she did clear a chest of drawers which was sufficient for us. Though some of the towels were older, it was clean but some may consider not fit for visiting guests. I only cooked once and I had to scrub the pans hard from whoever used it last. I liked that she recycles, even the compost. The neighborhood felt very safe and well-lit at night and the neighbors friendly. Some of the fixtures were loose (kitchen sink and toilet seat) but Tiffany was appreciative with us telling her. She also gave us her number to use at the grocery to save some money and the savings were substantial. We also got our deposit back less than a week after we got back. Considering it was her home, there was quite a bit of contents in her refrigerator, some quite old - though i am sure the same can be said of my own at home! She said we were welcome to use the condiments and spices and pots and pans for cooking. But we were gone most of the day and exhausted at night. The beds were comfortable enough. We would come back. Thank you, Tiff!
Nice Place, Nicer Owner
My family of six (four adults and two 17/18 year olds) arrived on a Thursday evening and stayed through Sunday afternoon. The house is in a cute neighborhood of row houses, very conveniently located to a big grocery store (1.5 blocks) and within easy walking to the Stadium Armory metro station (5 blocks). The house is older as per the area, but well maintained. Things were comfortable and felt like a family home. Of all our previous rentals, this was the first home that was actually a residence. There wasn't a lot of storage space because this is actually Tiffany's home, and that was an adjustment for us. But Tiffany was very gracious about renting her home to us for our visit to D.C., and we enjoyed it.
The only things that were a negative for our group was that we couldn't use either of the televisions. Neither are newer, so they weren't able to be hooked up to anything like an X-Box. The downstairs tv has a 400 dvd player hooked up to it, but its not possible to see the names of the dvds, so it made it very cumbersome to use.
We would recommend contacting Tiffany for a good place to stay in D.C. Enjoy!
