Just 15 minutes to the heart of DC, this fun, safe area is a walker's paradise with plenty of local restaurants, shops, parks and bikepaths. "The Hideaway" is a relaxing escape for travelers. The space is newly renovated with new appliances and eclectic 1940s adventure decór. Close to everything, this place makes it easy to plan your visit.
Please note, this is a private basement studio apartment in a single family home. We live on site upstairs with our toddler son.

The space
The facts: This private studio space has a full kitchen, full bath, and Queen-size bed and work/study area. It is considered an English basement as it has an egress window and door window. The ceiling height is roughly 80 inches tall (a little shy of 7 feet) in most areas, and the entire area including kitchen and bath is roughly 875+ sq ft. There is a private entrance for our guests, and while we live on site, we won't interfere unless you request assistance. We do have a toddler son, so please be advised you may hear him running around at times! He is normally asleep by 8pm so there shouldn't be too much noise in the evening. There is a shared backyard patio and guests are welcome to use the grill if we're not using it. We can make our laundry room available if needed (it's located adjacent to the room).

Where you’ll be

Arlington, Virginia, United States

The Hideaway is located just a couple blocks from the Ballston area of Arlington, which has tons of great restaurants, bars, shopping, and transit. Arlington is very lively with a diverse population including many young professionals as well as families. It’s considered safe, clean, walkable and close to DC. You can easily walk to Safeway and Target among other amenities. There’s also the Bluemont paved trail that connects to the W&OD Canal for a nice stroll / ride with lots of wildlife including rabbits, deer, foxes, and a wide range of birds. Moreover, it's only about a 15 minute drive to Downtown Washington, DC and The National Mall, or you can take metro/bus directly there.

We've lived in the DC area for the past 15 years and love calling Arlington home. As such, we're happy to have you come and stay!
