Our home is within a block of some of DC's best dining, bars, & music venues, including Right Proper, Howard Theatre, Velvet Lounge, DC9, & 9:30 Club. You’ll love its ambiance, outdoor space, neighborhood, & accessibility to public transportation. It's good for couples, solo adventurers, & business travelers, as long as they're ok with our 2 cats & disabled dog. We welcome people of color, LGBTQ, & all other backgrounds. People with mobility constraints should contact us to discuss their needs.
Our home is a beautiful, 1895 row house with a garden in the back where we grow vegetables, grill, share time with friends, and generally enjoy the peaceful outdoor space. Our kitchen is great for people who like to cook, as do we. The guest bathroom has a jacuzzi tub in it that is great for unwinding after a long day.
Guests will have access to all areas of our home except our own bedroom and my private office.
Общение с гостями
I work from home, so I am generally quite available to support guests' needs. I'm something of a late riser, so I won't necessarily be around for early morning stuff, but am otherwise more than happy to help. I am also a tour guide here in DC, so I can offer more than passing insights into the city's history and sights.
Другие важные подробности
Our guests should embrace the fact that we live in a very busy part of a thriving city, and things are generally noisy in our area. There are several bars right on our block, and music venues within one block, so weekends are packed with revelers and nightlife. (The guest room faces the back garden, providing more quiet.) We are musicians with day jobs, and so we often practice in our basement, but we don't go past 9:00 p.m. out of respect for our neighbors and guests. Basically, we are friendly, fun-loving people who have regular visits from friends and neighbors, but who are also fiercely protective of our community relationships. If you share a similar attitude, you will have a wonderful stay with us. :)
Your bathroom is semi-private. We have a separate bathroom that we use, but the guest bathroom is also available to other visitors to our home, if we have dinner guests or a party or something.
While your room has an air conditioning unit, the house does not have central AC. We have great fans throughout as well as several window AC units, and we keep things well ventilated, but it's warmer in the summer. If you want to turn your bedroom into an ice box while you're here, that's totally fine. :)

- We expect guests to comply with local recycling ordinances and our own composting practices, which we will happily explain.

- Food should be stored in the kitchen, and consumed in the dining room or on the patio. It should not be in your bedroom, where it can leave lingering odors.
