About TM

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!

Charming two story house with eat in kitchen.

  • 5 of 5

Tiff left snacks and some toys for our 2 1/2 year old grandson. The house is a short Uber/Lyft ride to the Capitol and all the other sites. Grocery story and restaurants are close by. For a fee, Tiff obtained on street parking passes for both cars. Always found parking within a 1/2 block of the house. The half bath is on the first floor. The full bath is on the second floor between the two bedrooms. Having a wash machine and a dryer in the kitchen is very convenient.

Fantastic property in an ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.
