Come enjoy a furnished private room in a traditional DC rowhouse in sought after Georgetown location for a few nights, weeks or months!
The house is situated in a great location with no need for a car. Although parking is easy if you do have a car. There is easy public transportation (bus, capital bike share, zipcars, and gocars) less than a block away to access the Monuments, Smithsonian Mall and Museums, free concerts, and other DC neighborhoods.
But no need to go far for fun and relaxation. There are lots of things to do within walking distance.
Georgetown University is about 5 blocks away; less than a block away is the Social Safeway (grocery store), Starbucks, and several restaurants. On weekends there is a farmers market, and flea market even closer! There are lots of good restaurants in either direction of the house; a whole foods and gym are within walking distance also.
There is a neighborhood park about 6 blocks away with tennis, outdoor pool (summer season), baseball diamond, and a dog park. There is also a tennis court running/walking track across the street.
Georgetown Harbor is nearby and provides a great atmosphere to just relax, get a bite to eat, and enjoy the water views. Water taxis are available to take you to Old Town Alexandria and the National Harbor.
All of this close-by, but also quiet enough to sit out on the back deck with your morning coffee or tea (provided) and listen to the birds sing. Starbucks is two blocks away if you prefer their coffee!
The House is two levels with the entrance into the living/dining area with a working fireplace. Behind the living area is a large, sun-filled, fully stocked kitchen that leads to the back deck and stairs to the small yard. Upstairs are two relatively (for Georgetown) large bedrooms and one small bath. Prvrm 1 - the front bedroom - has one queen bed (as shown) with a small desk/vanity. The house has radiator heat (the best!) and central air. Generally, you would be sharing the house with me (and I am gone a lot) but there may be times when you are sharing with another guest. FYI - I live in the house when it is not rented so my things are in the house. Your things can be hung on the back of closet doors; although at times I can clear a closet and some space for folded clothes. PrvtRm2 has a dresser which has 3-4 empty drawers where you can store your belongings.
Drivers: Plenty of safe neighborhood parking. If you are bringing your car, I will need the lic. plate number and state for a residential parking pass. If you are renting, you can just give it to me when you arrive and I will go get your parking pass. If for some reason, I can't be here, we'll figure something out.
Bikers/Joggers: The C&O canal is an easy ride downhill; although you do have to come back at the end of the day! The bus system here is bike friendly so for $1 - $1.70 you could take the bus back up the hill if so desired.
Public Transport: We are on several bus routes - Metro Bus and Circulator
Other Adventures Nearby: By car - Shopping and restaurants in downtown Bethesda, Old Town Alexandria, and Arlington.
Outdoor Adventures: short drives (10-20mins) to scenic Great Falls Park, hiking on DC's hidden gem the breathtaking Billy Goat Trail overlooking the Potomac River and Mather Gorge, scenic; Fletchers Boat House - rentals for canoeing via canal or Potomac River; bike to downtown Bethesda.
Private room with shared bathroom and access to all areas of the house except the second bedroom. I am also open to renting the entire townhouse; please ask about this if you are interested.
Media: includes internet access and cable TV. I also have a Netflix subscription.
Children: I do not advertise the house as kid-friendly (an indicator on airbnb) and the house is not child proof. I have had children in the house with no problems. The youngest was about 4-5 and they stayed about 1.5 months. (I have also had someone with a 2 and 6 year old that didn't think the house was adequate for them.) If you are bringing children, please ask specifics about the house; you know your own children. I don't have children and I wouldn't know your needs.
Groceries: Let us know if you would like specific groceries waiting for you - we could have the fridge stocked ! Receipt left for reimbursement + $15 fee
Meals: Coffee/Tea available at all times.
You have access to the entire home with the exception of the room you have not rented. As is typical of Row Houses in DC, there is a separate basement apartment with their own outside access; you are renting the top two levels. There is a yard that is a mess right now. It is shared but few people (including myself) go down there.
As much or as little as you desire. I love meeting new people and helping them explore the area.
This is my bedroom so my things will be in it. I sometimes rent it out when I am not there so you may be sharing the house with someone else in "PrvRm2". I would be glad to tell you who would be in the other room for your reservation dates. Please ask if this is important to you.
I am an optimistic, easy going, kind, creative, open-minded, flexible, and independent woman (how’s that for a string of adjectives!) who is very comfortable with herself and happiest when laughing with others. I love entertaining, cooking, sailing, tennis, and dancing.
I own my own business but don’t ask me what it is that I do exactly. The business is comprised of an eclectic group of activities, any one of which I may be working on at any given time. Currently, I make most of the money that I need to live on a daily basis with rental property.
I also love traveling (particularly to sun and water destinations) so perhaps I will see you at your place someday!
