See complete House Rule Instructions in my listing: "Want a Longer Stay Rental in DC?"
Absolutely Non-Smoking policy or no illegal drugs allowed on property or adjacent to building. We expect you to be respectful to our other residence and guests. Your accommodations are designed for you to enjoy and relax. However we expect you to be responsible for your own daily tidiness.
If you are self-checking in:
When you arrive, get the instructions I left you and follow to enter the house. Close the front door back and lock the inner wood door's knob. Come up to the third floor level (3rd Fl) and bring your bags up to the last top level. The room door should be opened or unlocked. Your keys are on the table in a dish, viewing the front of the house on Florida Avenue.
Your bathroom is in the middle of the hallway (we may have left the door cracked). The light-switch is on the leftside over the sink when you walk in. Make sure you turn off the light-switch after each use to turn off the vented motor. Also, don't leave the floors wet from using the sink or shower and don't leave the floor mat soaked with water. Hang dry the mats and towels after each use. Any damage caused by your responsibility could result in being charged by AirBNB.
Let us know by calling our house numb(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN), to let us know you are in. Also, the internet info & password: (will be given to you on checkin).
We ask that you take into account our house rule for cleaning up after yourself. Each time you use the shower, for instance, clean it (don't leave hair and visibly anything that someone coming behind you can trace it to you). Especially, make sure water is not left on the floors. If you get water on the floor at any time, clean it up immediately.
Make sure you pick up the bathmat and rinse it, after your use. Place any wet floor-mat on the shower door to hang dry after each use as well. Turn off the light each time you are finished using the bathroom, to make sure the electrical fan is not constantly running. If the motor is burned out because you left it running, you could get charged by AirBNB, so be aware. We want the bathrooms to remain the Sanctuary it is intended for escaping the outside busy days.
Do not wonder around to residences' or other guests' area. Make sure you ask before taking anything that is not in your assigned area. Ask before assuming you have permission of taking anything that was not discussed upon check in.
If you decide to have more than the required guests you signed up for, let me know in advance to make adjustments to your reservations.
We are asking that our guests restrict any friends or other visitors from this house unless we approve them prior to their arrival. You may have any of your guests drop you off or pickup. Just not to enter the house without prior request and approval.
Also, continue to adhere to our House Rules about keeping the doors closed and locked where appropriate. We would appreciate your cooperation.
Let me know if you want to have family or friends other than yourself stay in this unit so that we know who is on the property and that they know the house rules. You will be responsible for any extra cleaning, repairs, or other services, we may have to charge if you or your guests leave everything "trashed."
Trash pickup locations and details should be adhered to each week. Apartment cleaning service available every two weeks for extended stay guests. Cleaning Fee is $55 per light cleaning, if needed.
As you collect your belongings make sure you completely tidy up the room. Take your sealed trash and place it in the garbage bin in the back of the house (if you have a lot) otherwise a small bag can be placed in the trash on any front street can. Cleanup all of any kitchen area you used too.
Upon leaving, you should make sure the front door and gate are opened and unlocked and take your luggage out before you leave the keys in your room, and avoid getting locked out the room (in case you leave something there). You may leave the "bedroom door" opened. Leave the keys on the table in front of the window or the end table. But, lock the knob on the outside door of the house as you exit, and close it behind you. Close the gate shut behind you as you leave as well. (You won't have the key to lock the house, obviously, but that's OK we will do it later). Leave us a note that you are leaving or have left too.
Meanwhile, have a pleasant journey returning back to your home, or onto your destination.

I was born here in Washington DC and love the beat of this city. I've had several businesses; most lasting for more than 45 years. I know a lot about DC history and love telling interesting stories of yesteryear!
I am very friendly but have a great knack at serious business. It all began in 1969 when me and Hilton Felton, my music director, started our youth singing group named "Ed Gerald Gospel Sounds". Consequently, for more than 23 years I produced a local (Metropolitan DC) Gospel Show called, "Spread a Little Sunshine", on TV - WTOP, WUSA--CBS Channel 9. Simultaneously, I recorded and produced gospel music; started Paradise Productions Studio next door to this building, then obtained the current building in 1995. This current building produced records under the labels "Paradise Productions", "Energy for God Record Company", Gospel World of E.G., then "EG Record Company." Many notable gospel artists were produced in this building, including the Dorsey Team of Dr. Clayton Hannah and Dr. Thomas A Dorsey.
People who have stayed at my property have had a pleasant fun stay and usually don't like leaving on-time which is ok with me too!
Each of my rented rooms are arranged for your privacy as much as possible (even the few rooms with some shared spaces). These rooms will have some significant historical meaning of my times in DC during the years of TV or Radio producing or recording music or shows that were also performed and presented in metropolitan Parks and Recreation.
If you ask not you receive not, is my favorite motto! Be encouraged...life is truly too short.
Before booking: Link your Airbnb profile to a social network, verify your phone number; and complete your Airbnb profile. If your profile is not complete, upon checkin, expect us to ask to view a photo ID and possibly make a copy for our private records. The purpose is for emergencies and security, like hotels would expect.
After booking: Make sure you send a note letting us know when we will expect your arrival. You may give us your travel itinerary, for instance. It will be helpful in arranging your checkin, if you plan to arrive within our usual 4pm checkin timeframe. If you expect to arrive more than 1 hour later than the estimated time you gave us, call or send a text updating your arrival time. If we have waited longer than an hour and don't hear from you, you may get charged $20 cash when you check in, for arranging to return or getting someone else to let you in.
When you get the opportunity to stay as our guest(s), make sure you read the online House Manual for clarity in your stay and especially your checkout procedures. The Manual is located near the description of the room you selected and booked. Please read details so that you don't get locked out, for instance.
With some locations of the rooms there might be noises that you are not familiar with. This building is located on a busy travel street also. If you are sensitive to noise, we suggest you bring ear plugs.
Remember that Airbnb is not for guests expecting perfection, but for travelers who appreciate getting to know a host and our surroundings, and bonding with the neighborhood and who appreciate saving money. There are many hotel locations in DC but are two to three times or more the price per night.
This whole area of DC experiences very high volume of so many people from around the world, throughout the year. Security around this area in the District would most often have very active metro and other security police, secret service police, CIA, FBI, etc., to monitor and guard all types of politicians and especially our President and his staff and family. This includes the citizens and visitors who are here too. Therefore, DC is not going to be a sleepy little town that a lot of people may be used to living. You can not compare DC or other larger cities, to your own quieter hometowns. However, if you are a conscience traveler and use your common scenes and stay alert, you will adapt to our many unique neighborhoods and people the longer you stay.
We expect you to keep your room(s) and immediate areas as tidy as possible during your stay. This will help you to follow checkout procedures, avoid additional cleanup fee charges, and when you leave, possibly avoid leaving anything behind.
You may text or call us anytime before, during, or as you check out with any questions about your visit. Thank You and Welcome to Our Nations Capital, DC!
We can arrange to schedule a basic driving tour of NW DC including Smithsonian, NatL Archives, Air & Space Museum; Iwa Jima Memorial, US Capital, Supreme Court, White House, Washington Monument, and a few more popular sites around NW Washington. We charge $45/hour for your group, up to 4 people. By the hour charges only apply (no halfs calculated). This Is daytime 9-6. After 6pm til midnight, $55/hour basic evening/night tour. Ask about our airport transportation service or other arrangements as well. I operate in all the metropolitan airports. If you're interested in the above, let me know in advance what you prefer for scheduling.
If you are driving and want to know what to do about parking in our neighborhood, there are some options. There is free street parking. However, its imperative you follow street signs for areas that require you to move your car during street cleaning times. You must watch the dates and times when its restricted. Also, watch "Residential Zone" parking. Hefty fines are issued if there are violations and/or you may be subjected to towing. Make sure you do not fail to adhere to DC's parking restrictions. The restrictions are lifted for street cleaning between Oct 31 thru March1, each Winter season, however.
If you expect to stay and park in our neighborhood for longer than two weeks with another State license plate, you need to go to DMV to get a temporary parking permit. (The District's Parking Enforcers will keep track). There are also downtown parking lots and garages. You can find them on a "Parking Panda" App. If you don't want to be concerned about the parking, i also rent a parking space behind the home and I would need to schedule you, if its available during your stay.
