The space
BEDROOM + SITTING ROOM

We love our porch, and you will too. Stroll up to the corner to buy dinner, and enjoy it on our cozy porch that feels like a tree house. Or for something different some evening, ask to use our kitchen or the grill on our back deck to cook your dinner.

YOUR ROOMS UPSTAIRS
You get a small but sunny bedroom with a double bed (54 in 76 in...137 cm x 193 cm) plus the adjacent sitting room with TV, Internet, and even a laptop if you didn't bring your own, plus a microwave. Your mini-fridge will be stocked with complimentary goodies on arrival. The upstairs bath is 95% yours. (My office is upstairs, but our bed-bath is downstairs, so I may occasionally want to use your toilet--but you will always have priority). In addition to the doors on your rooms, a curtain provides extra privacy as you pass between them.

MAX OCCUPANCY -- 2

TRANSIT
A bus on our corner will get you to the Roslyn subway within 10 minutes in rush hour. And from there it's a 10-15 minute Metro ride to most anywhere downtown. Get lost or tired and we'll come pick you up.

OUR NEIGHBORHOOD
Our street of cute little houses is quiet--but just over a rise a half block away you'll find shops, a grocery store, Curves, and a yoga studio, as well as these restaurants:

-Portabellos American Cafe
-Pasha Middle Eastern Cafe (our favorite)
-Thai Place
-Carriage House, food of old Europe
-Billy's Cheesesteak
-Subway
-Baskin Robins/Dunkin Donuts
-Kite Runner, Afghan food

YOUR HOSTS
My husband is a retired teacher and director of language schools who has also been a bartender and an actor (catch a glimpse of him in "House of Cards" TV series with Kevin Spacey.) I teach Web Design and am interested in conflict resolution--especially among world religions. We speak Spanish and French.

WHAT'S THE CATCH?
My husband is a contender for the Olympics of power napping and likes to train in the living room. So we'll ask you not to hang out there--just tiptoe through, please.

We're eager to meet you!
