Windows on three sides allow light all day long. It's our home and we've worked hard to make it lovely and comfortable. The entire home was renovated in 2009, with a great new kitchen and brand new bathrooms.
2 bedrooms and one bath upstairs; living room and kitchen/dining room with a great deck overlooking trees in the back yard on the main floor; laundry and sweet screen room downstairs.
We ask you to feed our cat, Simone, 2x/day. We also own a dog but he'll be with the dogsitter.
The two bedrooms are upstairs. The master bedroom has a card table in it for your belongings (sorry -- no closet space available) and the bed is SUPER comfortable. It shares a bathroom with the smaller bedroom.
The smaller bedroom is our preschooler's room. The bed is a trundle bed, so it's good for one kid -- or two, if you pull the trundle bed out. Plenty of toys -- blocks, duplos (legos), trucks, stuffed animals, books, small table.
Guests will have use of the wireless internet and TV-on-demaind (no cable but several stations on roku incl. Acorn, Amazon Prime + a bunch of purchased stuff, Netflix).
We have a really lovely back deck that overlooks trees, a sweet screen room below it, and a nice back yard. There is space to park beside the house and on the street and a little neighborhood park across the street where all the neighbors gather with kids.
The basement has a laundry area with full size washer and dryer that you may use, and a treadmill (also available if you are so inclined). The other half of the basement is finished as a meditation room and has the second full bath attached.
We only rent our home when we are out of town, so we will not be personally available; however, we are available by phone/text/email and neighbors or my parents (depending on when you rent) are available in case of emergency.
2 bedrooms upstairs, one with a queen bed the other with a trundle bed. 1 full bathroom upstairs, 1 full bathroom in the basement. We can set up a pack & play and/or changing station on request.
Guests are expected to leave our home just as they find it, and to take their own belongings with them!
2 quiet gen-x'ers: one from New York City, one from San Francisco, but live now near Washington, DC. We've been together since 1994, have a cat and a dog, and for the last handful of years have been consumed with home improvements. Kinda bookish, friendly, love live music, great food, dear friends, and weekends out of town. We have one son, born in May 2014, and have been hosted by airbnb'ers with him several times -- always to rave reviews (please read them!). Especially when guests, we live lightly in our space and clean up after ourselves.
