PLEASE READ FULL DESCRIPTION SO THAT WE CAN MEET YOUR EXPECTATIONS :)
Very comfortable, nicely decorated "home away from home." The basement guest suite sleeps 2 in a comfortable adjustable Ikea bed (which can be made into a King or twin if you want more floor space) with space for portable crib, or an airbed for a 3rd adult.
The room is located downstairs in the basement level and has a private entrance around the back of the house down an inclined grassy/slate stone path (NOT handicap accessible); **at night turn on the outdoor light to assist seeing the short path.
Since the room is located under our main floor, expect the sounds of footsteps and kids above during the hours of 7:30am-7:30pm. If you require quiet during the day and it's not a school day, remember this is a family home so I recommend choosing a different listing IF you need absolute silence during the day.
There is a spacious private bathroom attached to the bedroom with a standup shower (no tub). The duvet, sheets & towels are high-quality. There is plentiful storage in the closet, drawers under the bed, and in the bathroom cabinets; a convenient luggage stand. There is a mini-fridge and microwave and eating utensils for 2 if you want to bring snacks or microwaveable meals; we provide instant coffee, tea, and a few bottles of water. There is a small table for work or eating, with 4 chairs. We provide free WIFI but we do not have cable TV in our home. We like to put a few children's books, toys, and snacks in the room when you have a child with you. Let us know how we can make you feel right at home!
We have traveled a lot and know how much more comfortable a home can be over a hotel! Staying in our home is also a great way to learn about the area and meet some locals! This a great space for singles, couples, or a small family. We are a bilingual family - English/Spanish; Lauren and Lester met while Lauren was in the Peace Corps in Central America! Our neighborhood has interesting historical roots starting with George Washington, and the Village of Shirlington is vibrant with shops, restaurants, and theaters. We are located perfectly for those traveling along I-95 and needing a homey stopover location around DC. We are an easy 10 minute drive or bus ride to Pentagon Metro (there are several bus routes next to the house), and from there you can easily access all of DC! More than 1/2 of our guests don't have a vehicle during their visit, and they are able to quickly learn how to get around using public transit.

As noted elsewhere, we have two little kids and a baby. They are generally really cute & funny, but they aren't perfect and can get rambunctious during the day. They go to bed early (by 7:30pm) for normally peaceful nights (and we provide earplugs if little feet above bothers you outside of our stated quiet time)...and wake up fairly early (between 7-7:30am usually) so our listing may not be a good fit if you're a light sleeper that wants to sleep late.

Young professional parents with two adorable kids. We love to travel and stay in B&Bs ourselves, and I think that makes us pretty good hosts since we have tried to implement the details that we love when we are traveling :) We love Arlington and DC, and specifically our historic Claremont neighborhood near Shirlington, for all of the amenities, culture, history, and fun public activities. Lester and Lauren are both entrepreneurs. Lester is from Honduras, and we met while Lauren was serving there in the Peace Corps. Lester loves soccer, music, going out dancing, visiting his home country, and cooking; Lauren loves reading, travel, watching a good movie by the fire, scuba diving, and singing and dancing (especially with her two cute kids).
