Échanges avec les voyageurs
We don't always see our guests because the unit is separate from our home. That being said, we enjoy getting to know our guests and sharing our knowledge of the local community and DC. Just ask!
Lots of restaurants and cafes are nearby. We highly recommend Compass Coffee on 7th for your morning fix and Right Proper Brewing for Southern home-style cooking and tasty/uniquely brewed on premises beers.
Cyclists: Want to go for a bike ride while you are here? Get out and see the city like a local, bike around the monuments at night, or get that out of town workout in with a 50 mile training ride! Jeff will be happy to do any ride and will customize one to meet your expectations and level of ability. Check out his website at DC Cycling Concierge for more information on services and rates.
We ask that you treat the apartment as you would your own. No smoking and/or burning incense of any kind is permitted inside the apartment. If you would like to smoke, there is room on the patio in the front yard; an ash tray can be found near the front entrance.
Key pick up and drop-off will be arranged via email prior to your arrival.
Sorry, no pets allowed. Please, no parties and/or events.
Parking: A $50 USD refundable cash deposit is required for a Guest Parking Pass, which allows you to park in and around our neighborhood (street parking).

Thank you for choosing to stay with us!
After living all over DC (Brookland, Gold Coast, Foggy Bottom, Logan Circle), we finally decided to buy a house in a little known neighborhood called Shaw ... fast forward 12 years and WOW, things have changed! In just the past three years, Michelin rated restaurants, bars, breweries, and music venues have been popping up along with high-end condos, newly renovated Victorian homes, playgrounds, and dog parks. Shaw has quickly become one of the most sought after DC locations for young professionals, hip retirees, and young new families. It's also the neighborhood our family calls home.
We love to travel, Germany, France, Belgium, Thailand, the states! With our new additions to the family (two boys and a girl), our travel has been minimized, but we still find time to see our friends and family. We love hosting parties and dinners and hope that that love will translate into your stay with us!
