Tastefully restored Victorian row house located blocks from the convention center. Cozy English basement apartment hosts it's own bedroom/bathroom, kitchen, living/dining. Old world charm w/ 21st century comfort where people provide the heart & soul!

Le logement

This English basement apartment is a self-contained apartment on the lower level of a three story Victorian Row house. It has it's own bedroom, bathroom, living/dining room and kitchen. It shares an entrance with the main house and then has it's own entrance down the stairs to the apartment.

The bedroom with a double/full bed, dresser/mirror, floor lamp, reading chair and lovely Persian carpet is quite cozy. It has a window that catches the morning sun.

The living/dining room comes complete with a double/full pull out sofa (with traditional metal frame and mattress that folds three times to make the seat of the and would sleep two children comfortably), two chairs, end table, TV - Verizon Cable and High speed internet (50Mbs), and dining table and chairs.

The kitchen has a full size stove and refrigerator and comes stocked with the essentials: vinegar and oil, salt/pepper, and a few spices!

There is a full size washer and dryer which you are free to use. It is also shared with the main house at times when you are not in the apartment and with your prior approval.

The hosts occupy the main part of the house, along with out lovely housemate and other air bnb guests on the top floor. They share the main entrance to the house, but do not access the English basement apartment.

Although they are not allowed in the apartment, there are two other permanent residents in the main house! Simba and Nala. They are rather large Maine Coone cats! Very sweet and loving, but terribly shy (unless they know you absolutely love kitties!) So please, if you have any allergies or just plain don't like cats, this may not be the place for you!

Lastly, there is a lovely patio and garden (with a Weber bar-b-q) that you are free to use during your stay. Access is from your apartment.

In addition to the apartment, guests are free to use the outside patio.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

We absolutely love having guests. We do not take everyone who inquires - we can afford to be choosy! We are interested in people who love to travel, are open to new experiences and who prefer the community of shared living, rather than a hotel. As mentioned, the apartment is self-contained, but as we share the main entrance to the house, we might see each other as we are coming and going!

Elmar is often around upstairs (works from home) and is always available for a chat, or to answer any questions or concerns. Michelle, equally sociable, travels quite a bit for business and so is in and out. Amanda, our Venezuelan friend works full time and is usually up and out by 9 a.m.

Autres remarques

It's hard to articulate properly our love for having people in our home. You can read our reviews to get a sense of who we are. We did AirBnB in Sydney for a couple years before moving back to the US and wanted to continue the tradition here. But that's exactly it - it's our home, not a hotel so we are looking for folks who share those same values!

Michelle was super friendly and helpful ! She gave us addresses of good restaurants and advices to visit Washington. The apartment is clean, comfortable and well-equipped. The location is great, next to a metro station or 20 min by foot to the Mall. I will definitely recommend this place !

We enjoyed much our stay in Elmar Michelle's house. They were great hosts, and the house is conveniently close to everything: convention center, metro, downtown.

Elmar and Michelle's place is an amazingly cozy haven in DC. The basement level makes it feel very secure and its fully featured; it was great having our own kitchen and fridge to make breakfast and lunch in and save some money on our trip. The place is spacious and comfortable, we looked forward to going there after a long day walking around DC's museums and monuments to relax and recharge. Had a fantastic time there, definitely recommend this place.

Elmar & Michelle's place was absolutely perfect for our stay in Washington D.C. They were great communicators right from the start, making sure they would be available to welcome us. The apartment was clean, spacious enough for two people, and located within walking distance to the convention center, and many great restaurants and shops. We really enjoyed talking to our hosts throughout our stay and they gave us great tips for places to check out. I would highly recommend their place for anyone that is looking to stay in D.C!

Fue nuestro primer Airbnb y estamos muy contentos con la experiencia. El piso de Michelle y Elmar contó con todo lo necesario para hacer nuestra estancia perfecta. Michelle fue muy amable al recibirnos, nos explicó cómo funcionaban el piso y además los lugares cercanos (metro, bus, supermercados). Además nos permitió adelantar el check-in, lo que nos favoreció mucho ya que llegamos antes a Washington. El piso queda en el sótano de la casa (pero está muy bien iluminado con luz artificial) por lo que debes ingresar por esta para llegar a él; a pesar de estar dentro de la casa, sus dependencias son independientes, por lo que no altera la privacidad. El sistema de entrada es a través de llave electrónica. El departamento está cerca del metro y de paradas de autobús, además de un supermercado. El barrio es tranquilo. Elmar y Michelle son muy amigables nos invitaron a cenar con ellos y nos divertimos mucho. Sin dudar, si volvieramos a Washington nos quedariamos en esta casa.

Profil utilisateur de Elmar Michelle

Elmar is from Austria originally, speaks German and English, and lived in Australia for 20 years. Michelle is from the US, speaks English and Spanish, and lived in Australia for 7 years. We returned to DC in March 2016 and as super hosts in Sydney, we are keen to continue with Airbnb in our DC home! Both of us are well traveled and love having guests in our home. As a couple, we are easy going, easy to be with and enjoy conversing about travel, life and experiences (or whatever happens to come up over a nice cuppa or a meal!) We are extremely flexible, and are happy to accommodate schedules of our guests. Come and see us in our nation's capitol!
