More than likely we will be home during your stay and we are happy to help with anything you need! We will have available maps and other guides to help you navigate around the area. There are some food/takeout options and we will have menus but can offer advice as well. We do have a 3 yo son so you may hear noise from us upstairs. Typically, we are quiet from 9pm - 6:30am. However, please do not worry about disturbing us!
Quiet, residential neighborhood with mostly families and long-term residents. While there aren't many options for nightlife, popular DC neighborhoods like U Street, Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights, Petworth are short bus ride, Uber/cab ride, or a longer walk away. Supermarkets (Yes! Organic, Safeway), Wal-Mart, restaurants (see house manual for suggestionss but mostly take out within walking distance), CVS are all close by. Plus, easy access to all the amenities offered by neighboring cities of Takoma Park, MD and Silver Spring, MD. About three blocks to Rock Creek Park A wonder place to hike, run, play tennis, or catch a concert during the summer! Choose either the Tennis Stadium or Carter Barron Amphitheatre entrance. Farmer's Market three blocks North on Saturdays from 9a-1p.
Lots of options for public transit! For your convenience, we provide pre-loaded METRO CARDS (you swipe when you enter the bus or train station) for each guest to use on all city buses and train.

I've been living in the District for almost 8 years (Airbnb host for ~1 year) and this is my third location in the city so I am well-versed in the different neighborhoods along with getting around by public transit. I love all DC has to offer - including free events all year round - so feel free to ask for advice. As a parent, I also can help with kid-friendly places and best ways to navigate the city.
