Light-filled English Basement apt with exposed brick walls. The bedroom has a queen-sized (super comfortable!) bed, wardrobe and loads of closet space. We've provided plenty of extra blankets and pillows. The couch in living room is also a pull-out queen sized bed (which guests also say is super comfortable), so the apartment easily sleeps four. Access to high speed wireless internet. TV is HD and includes dozens of cable channels plus HBO and on-demand (incl free movies); we both work in the film/television industry so there are countless DVDs w/complete seasons of tv series as well as movies (children's & adult). Plenty of kids' toys/games tucked away in closet. Kitchen is fully equipped including microwave, coffee maker & spices. We also provide basics such as milk, bread, butter, olive oil etc. There is also a large washer/dryer in the apt. The apartment has access to our large fenced-in back garden & guests have access to our back deck and barbecue. Guests are more than welcome to drink their morning coffee on the couch on our front porch or at the cafe table in our front garden. We live upstairs (apartment has entirely separate entrance) and are always available to answer any questions or concerns - and of course, to provide any recommendations re restaurants/bars/cafes, off-the-beaten track locations, best places to visit w/kids, etc.
Zugang für Gäste
In addition to the full apartment, guests have access to our fenced-in back garden (directly through the rear door of the apt) where they're welcome to use the gas grill, rear deck and outdoor tables. There is also a private outdoor cafe table and chairs for use exclusively by apt guests. The front garden also has a cafe table & chairs and you're always welcome to relax on the couch and comfy chairs on our front porch (perfect for your morning coffee)!
Interaktion mit Gästen
We both work during the day although one of us typically works from home. We're usually at home from dinnertime through the evening. We're both completely fine with chatting and giving advice - or leaving you entirely alone (whatever's preferable to you!). We've lived in our home for almost 20 years and are more than happy to help you find a suitable restaurant or provide local tips (though this may have to be via phone/text/email if we're not at home). We are - of course - always available to answer questions re the apt and, of course, we're right upstairs if there's an emergency. Note that you can easily explore many of the restaurant/shopping/night-life areas by foot. We're one block off of the main thoroughfare (Connecticut Ave) but our street is entirely residential and extremely safe.

Because the apartment is part of our home, you can hear some light noise from the rooms directly above the apartment during the day. It's a 3-story house and we go to bed relatively early, so there's no chance of late night noise impacting your stay in the apt. On the other hand, if you're ultra noise-sensitive or require absolute silence during the day, this apartment's definitely not for you!
No Smoking at all in the apartment!!Our apartment is an English Basement with a separate entrance from the main house. We live upstairs with our two teenage children and dog. We absolutely prohibit parties and do not want outrageously loud noise/music either (we're completely fine with music played at high volume - just not blasting). Because we're upstairs, we're available if you have any questions (within reasonable hours) and always in case of emergency at any time at all.
My husband and I have lived in our DC home for almost 20 years (and brought up our two children here)! We love living in the city and Woodley Park is the perfect combo of urban and residential. We rarely drive because there are so many shops, restaurants and even a movie theater all in walking distance; the metro is also only a block away. At the same time, we know all of our neighbors (the street is a mix of families with children & young professionals in apartments). We spend a lot of time on our front porch and on the whole, are very friendly, relaxed and welcoming. I'm a sculptor, writer and documentary filmmaker but primarily work at home (and love to bake!). My husband, Jason, runs a documentary film production company and often travels internationally for work. We're more than happy to chat and help you with any recommendations for restaurants etc - but we're just as comfortable giving you complete privacy.
