Description

Pleasant, 1-bedroom English basement apartment in safe, quiet residential neighborhood. Separate entry, 1-wall kitchen, FAST wifi. Walk to bus, restaurants, grocery, gym, bike station/path & Foreign Affairs Training Center (FSI). Lenient cancellation policy for stays over two weeks; feel free to ask about flexible checkout dates or other concerns regarding long-term stays.

Ideal for those relocating to the metro DC area and professionals on temporary assignment. Apartment is quiet and well set up for work/study. Plenty of on-street parking. (Off-street negotiable.)
Note: the bed is a double (full), not queen or king. Very comfortable for one; can be tight for two if you're large or used to more space.

Your apartment has its own door (key provided) for privacy, but you can use the whole basement, including a small reception area and utility space with washer/dryer and some storage(shared with owner.
Our yard is unusually large for such a close-in property and is very pretty in season. Guests are welcome to use it and the (rather old but still solid) back deck for relaxing any time and occasional entertaining. (Please clear any group plans with owner.)

Bikes are welcome and there's space for one in basement or garage. Two (not very fancy) crossover bikes in the garage can be borrowed.

Owner lives on-site and is happy to help guests settle in. But we value our privacy and will respect yours as well.

Our neighborhood is quiet, safe and residential, and only a few blocks from eclectic, gentrifying Columbia Pike with its ethnic restaurants and groceries, great bus service, bike station and paths direct to closest metro stops (Ballston and Pentagon City). A state-of-the-art gym and community center is ~5 blocks away.

We are 3 blocks from a pretty park running along a good-sized creek. A bike path along the creek (the W&OD trail) continues past Arlington's borders to the Potomac and Mount Vernon to the south and east, and 45 miles west to Purcellville VA in the foothills of the Blue Ridge. (Cyclists, take note.)
The gym/community center (mentioned above) is just on the other side of this park, making it a rather pretty walk.)
Our mostly ethnic restaurants include Thai, Chinese, Moroccan, Ethiopian, Salvadorean, Bolivian and one famously 24-hour American diner.

Centrally located, we are 5 miles from Washington DC and 2 miles from both the Ballston (orange line) and Pentagon City (blue and yellow lines) Metro stops. Though you CAN walk to Metro, I do not consider us to be "walking distance" and the rental price is discounted with that in mind.
You can reach metro stops and many points of interest on paved bike paths running through parkland (bike station nearby or you may store your bike in your apt. or our garage -- or borrow one occasionally), or on the many buses serving the Columbia Pike and Ballston corridors. (Two stops are within a block and a half of our house.) I hope the price, peace, and abundant free parking in our neighborhood compensate for not being right next to a metro train station.

The 7 stairs to the basement landing are steep and a bit narrow, so I do not recommend this space to anyone with mobility issues. Also, there is a spot near the kitchen where a boxed-in ceiling pipe slopes down to a point just 6 feet above the floor. If you are over 6 feet , you may feel cramped by the low ceilings, at this one point in particular.
Finally, the one-wall kitchen offers a real fridge but no stove or dishwasher. Instead, there are a countertop convection oven (with automatic safety cutoff), Keurig coffee maker, electric teakettle, stable and surprisingly effective double hot plate, rice cooker if desired, plus cookware. We've had a couple cooks stay for a month or more who reported the kitchen worked surprisingly well for them.
