Greetings! We own a home in Upper NW DC - half way between Dupont Circle and Silver Spring. We have four bedrooms, with one serving as our home office, leaving us with two rooms to rent out from time and time - typically to new residents of the city
The house is great! Two levels and about 3,200 square feet. The main level has two living rooms, a spacious, fully equipped kitchen with double ovens and gas stove, and an oversized dining room. There is also a great deck off the back of the house, ideal for getting some fresh air, or grilling out. Upstairs there are two bedrooms that are available for rent:
Bedroom One: The Red Bedroom. This room is about 13 x 12 in size and features a queen size bed, spacious closet, nightstand and dresser. There is an en-suite bathroom to this room. Rents on this room start at $135 per night.
Bedroom Two: The Brown Bedroom: This room is much larger - coming in at about 20 x 12. This room is furnished similar to the red bedroom with a queen size bed, dresser and nightstand. It also features a 40 inch LCD TV, entertainment center for the TV, and a comfy chair for reading or watching TV. This room has direct access to a second floor back porch which is about 8 x 20 and which features rocking chairs, a table and chairs for morning coffee. While this room does not have an en-suite bathroom, there is a bathroom which is dedicated solely to this room, just outside the bedroom door. Rents on this room start at $150 per night. We prefer to not rent to anyone for more than 30 days.
While a guest with us, you'll enjoy the following:
* Cable TV in both bedrooms including HBO and Showtime
* Washer / Dryer
* Easy Parking
* Central Air
* Two Fireplaces
* Outdoor Space
* This is a newly constructed house!
We do rent the entire house out to interested parties who are looking for that accommodation (pricing starts at $500 per night). In this scenario however, when only a room is rented, we would be present in the residence while you are renting. We both work traditional work schedules (sometimes from home). We're friendly and outgoing, and we've been renting to people for over 10 years. We are here if you need us on advice for dinner locations, grocery stores, etc - and if you'd like to join us while watching evening TV or BBQing outside, you're more than welcome to do so. Please note that we do also have a dog, so renters must be dog friendly (she's a hyper-allergenic dog - non-shedding).
We live in a residential neighborhood, about three miles north of Dupont Circle and U Street corridor. Rock Creek Park is two blocks from the house, ideal for biking, hiking and jogging. Carter Barron Amphitheatre, which features tennis courts, soccer fields and summer concerts is also just a few blocks from the house. We are also just a few blocks from the new Wall Mart that just opened on upper Georgia Avenue. We are west of Georgia Avenue.
The 14th Street, 16th Street and Georgia Avenue Bus lines are all easily accessible via a short walk from the house. The bus ride to downtown DC takes roughly 20 to 25 minutes depending no time of day. There is also a bike lane on 14th Street which can be used for those wishing to bike downtown. Silver Spring is also easily accessible, as is Chevy Chase and Bethesda.
Parking is easy on our street as it is not zoned / no paring decals are needed.
No Smoking, no pets, no parties, no drugs, no couples sharing the room unless identified prior to renting. We prefer to rent to people for 30 days or less (a week is ideal). We are a great home base for those moving to the city and seeking longer term housing, that being said, we do not allow furniture to be moved into the house for storage.
