If you loose the keys you have to pay the new key and the lock smith to open your room or closet door.And if you suddenly need to end your visit earlier than you anticipated we don't do for example if you leave a day earlier that planned. Reason being that we often actually planned and chose you and cleared and held the room or bed for those dates and also we may have turned someone else down that wanted the space on your dates....
I am a fun happy open minded person. I have been living here in Arlington -Dc metro area a few years and know the in's and out's of the city ..and traffic patterns. I love to cook and hang out at farmers markets and go walking running or just shopping at local international food stores. The house is a group house with a true family feel as I try to bring the permanent roommates and the airbnb.com guests together sometimes to eat or chat over a political debate or whatever is going on in the news
A couple of international people currently live in the house. We have lots of fun and multicultural people are visiting the residents often. We love to cook and have some meals together and share recipes and flavors.
I actually cook all kinds of international dishes and often invites guests to share ...and join in the meal.
The house is very centralized so were close to everything in Dc metro area...and transportation is not a problem ... you can take the metro that is 1 block away from the house ( East Falls Church Metro Station) or we also have Uber and Lyft and bike trails are close to by.
And parking is available on street right in front of the house.
All in all the closeness to Capital Hill, The White house and Georgetown and the Museums and Tyson's corner and the High tech of Tysons and Herndon make it an easy choice of places to stay.
