Various public transportation options are within minutes, which makes the neighborhood accessible and easy to navigate to and from.

We live in the home and you will most likely hear us at times when we are getting ready in the morning to go to work and at night when we are home watching TV, cooking etc.

Our home has surveillance cameras installed on the front and back entrances, so be sure to smile for the camera.

About Teodora Dimitrov

Hi there,

My husband Stoyan and I visited DC as tourists back in 2010 and ended up falling in love with the area and decided to move. Soon after moving, we purchased our row house, and are excited to have become VRBO hosts. We were both born in Bulgaria and would be happy to tell you more about our background and travels.

I am an avid salsa dancer, who goes out social dancing every week. Stoyan enjoys riding his motorcycle and playing soccer. We also spend quite a bit of time outdoors walking Bimmer, our Boston Terrier. We like to travel and take every opportunity to do just that.

We look forward to being your hosts!

Great, quiet option in DC

  • 5 of 5

Very nice room for a visit to DC. Set in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to public transportation. The room itself was private and has everything you need. No cable or satellite tv, just antenna -- but you should be out experiencing DC anyway!

Comfortable studio!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this studio for four nights while visiting DC. It is in a nice neighborhood, about 15 minutes walk from the Georgia Ave-Petworth Metro station, and we felt safe walking from the Metro station after dark. Teodora and her husband were helpful and available when we reached out.

The one thing we wish we'd had available were some paper towels or napkins. Everything else was great!

Clean, quiet, comfortable studio in urban neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This basement studio was perfect for our trip to DC. We felt like we got to stay in a neighborhood with a lot of character and interest but still accessible to the monuments and museums. The studio and bathroom were very clean and furnishings newer and comfortable. The metro is about a 15 min walk through a cute residential area. I would book again!
