A terrific suite with a private patio only 6 blocks from the National Mall, the monuments, and the Smithsonian museums. The shimmering nightlife, spectacular restaurants, and live music at the new Wharf district are only 3 blocks from our front door. This is the most convenient location in DC, with 5 metro lines, a bike share station, walking trails, uber, lyft, city buses and a water taxi all less than 3 blocks away. Parking available on-site for only $20 per night.

The space
This extra large room is tastefully decorated and features a comfortable queen-size bed made up with nice sheets and cozy comforter. The room includes a sitting area with couch and chair as well as a workspace and make-up area. You will have free wi-fi internet access and cable TV, One of the nicest things about your room, is that it has it's own courtyard--a secure and private oasis in the city!

This room is located on the ground floor of our three-story townhome along with another guest room and your shared bathroom. Guests traveling with family and friends will want to check out our other room at https://www.airbnb.com/manage-listing/16179023/calendar. Together, the two rooms accommodate up to 4 guests.

Guest access
The room is located on the first floor of the home with easy access from the front entrance. The room includes a small refrigerator, coffeemaker with complementary coffee, and a sitting area. You have access to a shared full bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and soothing shower.

The upper floors are our private residence. If you have questions or need assistance let us know.

Other things to note
If you are arriving in town before our normal check-in time of 4:00, feel free to drop your luggage off early. Also, if you want to leave your bags once you vacate the room on your last day, we will be happy to accommodate you. If you are driving and need parking, we can provide an off-street parking spot for an additional $20 per night. (There are parking garages a couple/few blocks away but they typically charge more and do not offer free in/out options).
Please take a look at reviews we have had from earlier guests. Here are two that Diane and i are particularly proud of:

Better than anything I have experienced before, even at a hotel. The difference was the hospitality and warmth Garon and Diane had in abundance. It was in the details as it was in the overall experience. I loved the place and the people. Would recommend it to anyone who wants that extra buzz of zen in their visit to DC. Thank you for making this a very memorable experience!

There is an amazing alchemy that happens when you enter a home and feel immediately that you have entered a living space that makes you feel as if you have come home. This is how we felt here! The room itself is a dream, with a superb bed that afforded restful sleep, a bedside table with reading lamp, a comfy loveseat, a chair, a small refrigerator and coffee/tea maker, a desk area for writing or doing makeup, an armoire with ample hangers and drawers for unpacking, and good wifi. But the added bonus is a precious private patio nicely landscaped and outfitted with seating and small tables. We immensely enjoyed our morning coffee NT on the terrace, and happily shared the space with squirrels and birds. This home is located so centrally to everything we wanted to do...The Smithsonian Institute museums, the Mall and its many landmarks and memorials, and is just a subway ride away from Dupont Circle, Eastern Market, and so many other lovely DC neighborhoods. Garon and Diane provided us with maps, brochures, and loaned a lovely book to reference DC sites. They kindly made the laundry room available to us, and were readily available with restaurant recommendations and answers to various questions we had.

Location

Washington, District of Columbia, United States

The neighborhood is literally a few minutes away from so many of the sites DC is famous for. This includes the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, the Washington Monument, the White House, and the Capitol, as well as the National Mall and the Smithsonian Museum. For nightlife and restaurants, the Navy Yard is 2 metro stops away. Penn Quarter is a mile away, straight up 7th St. You can also rent a bike from the Capitol BikeShare program and take a bike trail to Georgetown.
