The space

An English basement like no other...this one has a to-die-for kitchen and a cavernous walk-in closet that others would consider a separate bedroom. The apartment's one bedroom has a queen-sized bed plus a home office nook with a large antique oak desk and chair. We recently added a daybed (twin-sized) that has a pop-up trundle (also twin-sized) in the bedroom. The daybed and trundle are not shown in the photos. The living room has a Jennifer sofa that converts to a full-sized (double) bed that sleeps two extra people. The pop-up trundle can be difficult to access since we must move the large desk to make room for it. So we also offer an airbed for the sixth person if the guest would prefer that. We have a pack 'n play available for families who need one.

Includes bed linens, bath towels, and a fully-equipped kitchen, down to the coffee pot, crock pot and George Foreman grill (plus gas and charcoal grills and an electric smoker are available for your use outside.) WIFI is strong and the flatscreen TV provides cable and DVD viewing. Cleaning supplies and hand soap are provided, but please bring whatever toiletries you want to use in the shower or bathtub.

Teresa and Reid were great hosts. Very responsive. The house is located in a great neighborhood and close to places with good food. Beyond the comfortable accommodations and breakfast, we really enjoyed the board games the hosts had in the rooms. Would love to stay here again if …

This place, and its owners, are gems! The space is lovely- it’s a good size for a big group (we had 5). The house itself is located on a peaceful residental street, but you can get to the attractions of DC easily. I definitely recommend!

The place felt like a nice one bedroom apartment and even though it was in the basement it had great light. Teresa does run a pet business out of her home, so it does get a tad noisy in the morning, however, she warned us about this in advance, so it wasn't a surprise. We were …
