We are generally around and available to assist guests as needed, however we believe in giving our guests privacy to feel as though they're at home. For guests that visit for long durations we often invite them for a meal or an enjoyable glass of wine in the garden. The apartment is a self-contained apartment with it's own entrance/exit - it's not unusual to rarely see guests unless a concerted effort is made. The NeighborhoodThe nearby Arts District of Hyattsville is a fun filled, eclectic, family oriented neighborhood with plenty of wonderful restaurants to appeal to just about any taste bud (Franklin's Brew Pub (a fan favourite), Shagga Ethiopian Cuisine, Spice 6 Indian, Busboys and Poets, Tara Thai, Elevation Burger, etc.). Also in the neighborhood are grocery stores, fitness centers, shops, art galleries, and parks - all within walking distance.

Conveniently, our home is walking distance to the West Hyattsville Metro Stop (on the D.C. Metro Green Line). From there it's extremely simple and timely to travel to lots of D.C. area attractions. West Hyattsville Metro stop is 1 stop outside of D.C.'s Fort Totten station (15 minute ride to Gallery Place, 10 minute ride to U Street; also accesses Georgia Ave/Petworth, Columbia Heights, Shaw, Navy-Archives, L'Enfant Plaza, and Navy Yard stations). Downtown Silver Spring is about 20 minutes away by car (or 3 metro stops away on the Red Line if traveling by metro), as are the offices of NOAA, NASA, National Archives II, Discovery Communications, Bolling Air Force Base, and Washington Navy Yard. We are always happy to provide our guests with guidance on how to travel. For our guests convenience we have 4 Smart Trip cards available for use.

Our charming bungalow is on a quiet street, but just a couple blocks from the bus stop. Walk to GLUT, the local food co-op, or to Joe's Movement Emporium, where you can sign up for a yoga or dance class to relax while you're here.

Other Things to NoteOTHER THINGS TO NOTE: We have friendly dogs and two generally absent cats, and while we can keep them out of guests' way, those with pet allergies or who are afraid of dogs should probably look elsewhere.

The SpaceWho this is for: People who want to stay inexpensively with a cool family in their charming old house, who are OK with sharing a bathroom with another guest, who appreciate how much life an old house has seen, and who expect the house to look like it's occupied by a family, which includes kids and a dog. We have a private bedroom in the treetops, on the third floor of our home, with a double bed. This room share a bath with another person Staying with us would be like going to visit your hippie aunt and uncle. We have towels, hangers, soap, Advil, nutritional yeast, soy creamer for your coffee... All that. Stay with us between late May and early September and you'll have access to our member-only swimming pool, with a 50-meter pool, huge baby pool, sand volleyball, tetherball, foosball, ping pong, 9 gas grills for your use, a kitchen, freezers full of ice cream, live music and food trucks on the weekends. $5 gets you in Mon-Fri and 5 PM, $10 Friday evening-Sunday. So worth it! We are located 6 miles from the National Mall, 5 miles from the White House, 4 miles from University of Maryland, 10 miles from National Airport (DCA), 35 miles from Dulles International Airport, 27 miles to BWI International Airport, 4.9 miles from Union Station and the Capitol, 14 miles to NIH in Bethesda, 5.9 miles to George Washington University (GWU), 8.5 miles to American University. By the way, there is no daily maid service Guest AccessWe have available one bedrooms on the top/third floor of our home. This bedroom shares a full bathroom with a clawfoot tub on the second floor. Guests can come and go as they please, but if you're nocturnal we probably aren't a great fit. Our two kids go to bed at 8 PM and we'd appreciate guests who are quiet coming and going after that time, and who aren't doing calisthenics in their bedrooms at 1 AM. Interaction with GuestsWe're friendly and helpful, and would be delighted to point people to the buses and metro, great restaurants and things to do. We're long-time nonprofit professionals and are even available for career advice! Our friendly dog would like you to pet her 24/7 but don't feel like you must. You're welcome to keep food in our fridge, do some laundry and hang out with our family. The NeighborhoodMount Rainier, MD is the closest you'll find to Portland in the DC metro area. It's diverse, progressive, and not completely shiny and gentrified. Mt. Rainier is right on the northeast border of DC, so it's easy to get to attractions from here. And we have so many of our own! Art studios, a glass school, a homemade ice cream parlor, what claims to be the oldest natural food co-op in the country, a vegan bakery and cafe, an affordable and amazing yoga and dance studio so you don't have to miss a class while you're traveling, a groovy juice bar, West African drumming and dance classes, a library, and a huge, park-like swimming pool and grounds where every day is a folk festival. Getting AroundTwo blocks from bus lines, a short bus ride to the Rhode Island Ave. metro on the red line, a 20-minute walk/5-min bike to West Hyattsville metro on the green line, and four miles to University of Maryland. To get here from DCA you can take the metro to Metro Center, transfer to the red line in the direction of Silver Spring or Glenmont and get off at the Rhode Island Ave. station. From there, take any bus in the (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)) or T18 or T14 and get off at the Mount Rainier traffic circle at 34th St. It's the only circle on the bus route, and it comes after the stop at Eastern Ave. Walk north (uphill) on 34th St. Go through the stop sign at Bunker Hill Rd. and take your first left after that onto Shepherd St. Go through one stop sign at 33rd and 3209 is the first house on the left after that stop sign. If you get on a bus that says "limited stop" or "express", that's a good thing. Another option, if you have heave luggage and don't want to drag it onto a bus, is to take the metro instead to the West Hyattsville station on the green line, where there is always a long line of Ethiopian taxi drivers waiting to take you places. A ride to our house form there is about $9 with tip. If you're coming from Dulles (IAD), well, the metro does not go out there yet. There's a bus from there to the West Falls Church metro station, so you could take that and then follow the aforementioned directions. If you're coming from BWI, there is a bus that takes you to the Greenbelt metro station and from there you could take the metro to West Hyattsville and take a taxi to the house from there. You could also take the shuttle bus to the train station and take an Amtrak or MARC train to Union Station, take the metro from there to the Rhode Island Ave. station, and take a bus to Mt. Rainier from there. See above for directions from Rhode Island Ave. station. Other Things to NoteAmple on-street parking. Lots of artists, activists and political types around here, both in the neighborhood and in the house. We're quiet, even with the kids, and keep a quiet, clean (though not obsessively) home. We don't have a television, so if you're looking for a place with a fancy entertainment center where all chairs face a screen, this is probably not for you. We like to sit and talk to each other, and we also respect people's privacy and don't require that you chit-chat. We're pretty easy.

The SpaceYou'll get plenty of space. Literally 2 entire floors, 3 bedrooms, a downstairs entertainment area with a pullout couch, the kitchen, the bathroom, a full deck where you can grill, a large backyard, a washer/dryer, free wifi, plenty of free street parking, and even off-street parking if you use the driveway. Everything is clean and comfortable. We welcome families, friends, or the occasional individual who just enjoys a lot of space to themselves. Guest AccessGuests have access to every part of the house except the basement. Sheets, bedding and towels provided as well as storage space in the kitchen. Highspeed WIFI and cable tv provided as well on the main floor. Roku devices are in the bedrooms. Interaction with GuestsSince my wife and I are in the basement apartment, we hardly see most guests during their stay (outside of arrival and departure). But that doesn't mean you can't request either of us to be present at any time. We are always available for help with the house, tips on DC or just general questions. The NeighborhoodWoodridge is a quiet neighborhood outside 15 minutes from city center. It is authentic DC city life - you may get asked for spare change here and there - but generally folks keep to themselves. We live across from a 7-eleven/gas station, which is great for convenience. For quick bites to eat, and forgotten toiletries, it really comes in handy. It is also one of the main places you may get asked for change :). The area is predominantly residential. It is close to highway 295 which will get you to several major highways like 395, 495, and Route 50. It is also 10-15 minutes away from 3 universities by car. A river pathway is about 15 minutes walk from me, and in spring and summer they offer kayaking and other boat rental at the Bladensburg Historic Waterfront access point for the river. Getting AroundThe house is just about a 3-4 minute walk from the bus stop. There's regular bus service that will get you to the Rhode Island subway (metro red line), in about 10 minutes. Driving to the metro and parking at the station is always a cost effective option as you can park all day for $4.60, and downtown parking can be inconvenient. If you wish to go the Uber route, the typical one-way fare to downtown DC is about $11-$14, if they're not surging. Within walking distance (5-10 minutes): Rita's ice cream, Zeke's coffee shop, Glut organic food market, Good Food Market, 2 parks each with basketball, tennis and baseball areas. Other Things to Notethe house is about a 7 minute drive (10 min bus ride) from Rhode Island avenue metro station. The bus is at the top of the block (3 min walk away) Parking is very easy in our neighborhood. It's free on the street and you can park up to 2 vehicles in my driveway. Our house is most convenient for guests who have cars and would prefer space and off street parking to the hassle of downtown D.C. We encourage guests to park at the metro station near our home for only $4.60 and take the quick metro ride into center city. There are TVs in every room of the house with Roku, and a TV downstairs in the living area with cable.

The SpaceWe fell in love with our home the moment we saw it and think you will, too. It was built in 1900 but has been completely upgraded to modern conveniences without losing its charm. We call it the Butterfly Bungalow because of all of the life that buzzes around the plants and flowers on the property. Your room has a comfortable futon full size bed with tempurpedic pillow top mattress. We recommend that if two people are booking (i.e. couples or friends), you be comfortable sleeping in the same bed. The doors are French doors with blackout curtains and double-pull down shades so you can have as much privacy (and darkness!) as you like. Guest AccessGuests will have access to the whole house except our bedroom, including kitchen with all appliances and amenities. There is also a studio outback where we meditate and do some yoga. Let us know if you'd like to use this space as well. Feel free to enjoy the front and back yards. Interaction with GuestsIt's a cozy house, so if we're all home there will naturally be some interaction! That said, we completely respect privacy (and can understand you may want to chillax in peace after a long day of sightseeing) and expect you to do the same if we just want a little space. The NeighborhoodMount Rainier is a small quirky community just outside of the DC-crazy. It feels small and artsy, and is very diverse in age, race, and income. Like all of DC, it is developing, but not at the overwhelming rate we have seen (and experienced) in more central DC neighborhoods. It is a hub of small local business owners and has a lot of heart. We love it! Favorite local places to note: Glut, our local veg-only grocer with the tag line 'Still cheap, still funky.' Bird, absolutely amazing food and cocktails. Joe's Movement Emporium with tons of dance and movement classes (including yoga), and Waterhole, best spot for juice and heathy eats in town. All two blocks away. About 1.5 miles up the road is downtown Hyattsville and Prince George's Mall with big box stores and other conveniences. Also very close to some wonderful bike and running trails. Getting AroundWe are just a couple of minutes walk to Rhode Island Avenue which had tons of buses that go just over two miles to Rhode Island Metro Station on the red line. We commute to work every day and it takes about 45 minutes to get to the White House. Other bus lines take you 10 minutes to West Hyattsville metro on the green line, which has you at U St in about 35-40 min during commuting hours. In warmer weather, we often bike 6 miles to downtown for work which takes about 35 min. Of course, if you have a car everything is that much more convenient! (We do not have a car and get around great.) We are a short drive and bike to YES! Organic Market, Busboys & Poets, and other conveniences in Hyattsville and other nearby communities. There is a ZipCar nearby as well if your preference is car sharing. Uber Pool is usually around $5 for two people from downtown.

The SpaceThe room is the entire upstairs of the house, and includes a full, private bathroom, two beds, coffee, mini fridge, a desk, folding tables for dining, and the quiet comfort of being in a hotel. I've now hosted scores of people from 30 different countries, traveling to DC for every reason imaginable. This space is perfect for groups on extended stays in the US and for families on a holiday in DC, and also a great value for couples and singles visiting for any reason. This is your spot if you want to be able to spread out and take a deep breath (and not break the bank) while still being almost on top of DC. Tambien, hablo poquito espanol, y puedo escribir informacion o instruciones en espanol via airbnb si es mas facil para ti. Guest AccessFull access to suite, private bathroom, wifi, 2 beds, a desk, and kitchenette. Interaction with GuestsI've lived in the DC area for 7 years, and I'm happy to provide information and suggestions about transportation, monuments, museums, dining, nightlife, music and other DC attractions. I absolutely love this city, and can't wait to share it. Guests will also receive a welcome sheet with everything they'll need to know about the house, the suite, neighborhood amenities, fun, and public transportation. The NeighborhoodMt. Rainier is a quiet, art-focused community that was incorporated in 1910 (back then DC's working families could move to a quiet lot with a yard for a whopping $2500/house). It was originally one of the first 'street car suburbs' of DC. Most people who live here chose it because they want a quiet neighborhood, but still enjoy being as close to DC as possible. The neighborhood is lovely for walking, running and biking, and is quickly becoming a center for local businesses. The street car doesn't exist anymore, but transportation is still easy. There's a natural foods market less than a block from the house and a 24 hour mini-mart across the street if you need anything during your stay! Plus a great juice bar and pizza place on the same block. Plus, a lovely restaurant and bar a block away. Getting AroundMt. Rainier is conveniently located on Rhode Island Avenue, which is a straight shot into the heart of DC. Mt. Rainier is the very first town over the border of DC, and residents enjoy all the major attractions and benefits of being downtown. There's an abundance of buses that go up and down Rhode Island, all of which end up at the Rhode Island Ave. red line metro station. The West Hyattsville green line metro station is 1.5 miles from the house. Also, the ever convenient G8 bus picks up .25 mi. from the house and heads west to the center of the city. Uber picks up within a few minutes, and costs $10-15 to get to downtown. Uber is your cheapest and best option for getting into the city quickly, especially if you have a few people to split the fare with. Parking is always available outside the house. The search engine that starts with 'G' and ends with 'oogle' is WAY smarter than I am when it comes to specifics for each day, so if you plan on doing public transportation, you're better off consulting it than me. But I'll do my best! Other Things to NoteI have a golden retriever. He's sweet and non intrusive and stays in a separate part in the house. If you like dogs, feel free to say hello. New friends are his absolute favorite thing. :) If you're not a dog person, no worries. He lives mostly in a different part of the house and won't bother you.

The SpaceThe house is a single family Victorian with a mix of old and new charm. It has AC for those hot summer days. There is a deck behind the kitchen with a comfy outdoor sofa and a grill. There is plenty of street parking if you are driving. My listing is unique because you will have a great amount of comfortable space to relax during your visit. Please let me know if you have mobility issues. The house is old and the stairs are a bit steep. Guest AccessI have a lock box on the deck in the back next to the grill. I have a picture in the listing so that you can have a visual of where it is. I will provide you with a 4 digit code to retrieve your keys. For your security, each room has locks in addition to the home itself. Guests will have access to DC Public transportation system 1 block. I provide tea in your room and bottled water for your DC adventures. Interaction with GuestsI meet person whom booked the reservation at a minimum, enjoy giving a whole house tour, and do a check-out. Sometimes I travel for work and this is not possible and I will leave a key in the lock box. In this instance, I will be available by email/text instantaneously. Phone is more difficult if I am in a business meeting. I prefer email/text especially for international visitors since I may not always understand with the language. Hopefully, this will prevent me from misconstruing and I get you exactly what you need when you need it :) I interact with guests as much as they would like and depending upon my schedule. I am a people person. I am available by cell phone for questions during the stay. Do not hesitate to call/text/messgae with questions! The NeighborhoodThis neighborhood is a true melting pot. People who have lived here 40 year to brand new folks. My neighborhood is the largest concentration of artist in all of DC. There are many artists lofts and galleries near by. We also have a fantastic food coop 3 blocks away. There are several eating establishments that deliver including a great vegan restaurant. Getting AroundWe are close to 2 lines of DC metro; the green and the red line. 10-15 min bus rides connects you to the red line metro. Metro is undergoing many maintenance problems through out the system. I recommend going to the WMATA website prior to your trip to see how it might impact your stay. DC National airport aka Reagan is a 30 minute cab ride (depending on traffic) and is about $30 cab ride/$23 Uber/LYFT. (If you do not have the Uber app already, download the app and use code chbmv in the promo field to get $20 off your first ride! If you have not used LYFT yet, you can download this app to get $10 off your first 5 rides. You an use this code to get the promo JULIE054418) You can take the metro from the steps of the airport to West Hyattsville Metro for less than $3 one way per person. You can also take the Flyer Bus or Super Shuttle but Super Shuttle hits the west side of the city first so it can be a good option when coming form BWI but it is not that cheap ($35 a person). BWI is accessible by metro as well. There is a shuttle to the metro from the airport to Greenbelt where you can take the Green or Yellow train to West Hyattsville metro stop and then take a cab or bus from there. Dulles Airport is an hour away and the least recommended of the 3 airport options. Other Things to NoteI have down, foam and memory foam pillows in your room for your comfort. I will have coffee, tea, bottles of water and a few snacks in your room. If you want me to stock the frig with food items in advance, I would be glad to do so for a $10 fee. WiFI is also provided. Please feel free to contact me with any special needs or questions. I am very flexible and glad to assist when I can.

The SpaceWe fell in love with our home the moment we saw it and think you will, too. It was built in 1900 but has been completely upgraded to modern conveniences without losing its charm. We call it the Butterfly Bungalow because of all of the life that buzzes around the plants and flowers on the property. The one bedroom has a comfortable futon full size bed with tempurpedic pillow top mattress. The doors are beautiful French doors with blackout curtains for complete privacy. There is a full-sized air mattress and a comfortable couch (great for sleeping) available in the living room if you have additional guests. Guest AccessGuests will have access to the whole except our bedroom, including kitchen with all appliances and amenities. Feel free to enjoy the front yard. Back yard is undergoing some landscaping changes but is not a nuisance to guests. Interaction with GuestsWe will be out of town when we rent out the whole home, but available by email or phone if necessary. We suggest reading the "House Manual" and Guidebook to get to know our favorite places in the neighborhood. The NeighborhoodMount Rainier is a small friendly community just outside of the DC-crazy. It feels friendly and artsy, and is very diverse in age, race, and income. Like all of DC, it is developing, but not at the overwhelming rate we have seen (and experienced) in more central DC neighborhoods. It is a hub of small local business owners and has a lot of heart. We love it! Favorite local places to note: Glut, our local veg-only grocer with the tag line 'Still cheap, still funky.' Joe's Movement Emporium with tons of dance and movement classes (including yoga), Red Dirt Studios with new artists studios, and Waterhole, best spot for juice and heathy eats in town.

The SpacePleasant, light-filled room with queen sized bed and private bathroom. Access to kitchen, laundry, and wifi. Guest AccessKitchen and dining room areas, backyard with grill. Interaction with GuestsModerate interaction available. We are happy to help with recommendations around town or give you your privacy. The NeighborhoodSpanning two miles along Route 1, with quick access to the MARC, two Green Line stations, and several bus lines, the Gateway Arts District is the perfect home for artists, art-lovers, families, commuting professionals, and students. Formed in 2001, the rich artistic diversity of the area results in a variety of restaurants, coffee houses, local and regional theatres, galleries and entertainment, as well as arts-related businesses such as arts and crafts stores, designers, and art supply stores that support and extend the influence and economic vitality of the artists' community. Getting AroundEasy access to Metro and buses. Street parking available and one space in driveway may be available depending on timing. Other Things to NoteWe have two small dogs who lives in the house. They are very friendly and love people and other animals.

The Space5-6 miles to popular DC attractions (National Mall, museums), 4 miles to the University of Maryland, College Park campus. 2 blocks to bus lines and main roads into DC, 1.5 miles to Metro. We even have a bicycle helmet for you in case you want to use DC's bike share. Two blocks from natural food grocery store, juice bar and vegan bakery and café. One block from yoga and dance studio. Three blocks from a new gourmet Southern cuisine restaurant. Six-minute walk to the buses, which take you to the Rhode Island Ave. metro station on the red line in 10 minutes. West Hyattsville metro on the green line is a 20-minute walk or $9 taxi ride. Mount Rainier is a very groovy neighborhood, the closest thing you will find to Portland in the DC metro area. There are over 100 artist working in this creative enclave. Who this is for: While this basement apartment is brand-new everything, our house was built in 1892, so you should appreciate old houses. We have two children and a dog, and you may hear us upstairs, especially in the mornings between 7:15-8 AM when we get ready to leave for the day, and after school from about 5 PM-7 PM. If you're bothered by any noises, feel free to call or text us and we'll fix it, but it'll be easier if you don't require total silence during those times. You'll be most comfortable in this space if you are 6-feet tall or under. It has a clawfoot bathtub, so think about whether you have trouble getting in and out of tubs with sides (might not be a great fit for people with mobility issues). There is keypad lock on the door, so you should be able to type in a four-digit code to operate a lock. The heat during winter comes from electric baseboard heaters, so while we welcome families, if you have a crawler you would need to be mindful of that. Also, please note that Airbnb gives hosts limited choices for how to list their rentals. The closest choice to what this space is is "entire house", because it is private. It is not a "shared space" because it's not like you will be sleeping on our living room sofa, nor is it an igloo or a cave. There is no way to indicate that this is a private unit in a house without just stating it here. There is plenty of free on-street parking near the house. There is no daily maid service or 24-hour concierge. Who this is for: People who want to stay inexpensively in a cozy private basement, who appreciate how much life an old house has seen, who understand what it means to have people living above you, who like funky neighborhoods, and who have a sense of adventure. We will be a good match if you keep in mind that I am a working mother and not a hotel. While I will do everything I can to make your stay as comfortable as possible, you should not expect a hotel. This apartment is perfect for people who are relatively low maintenance and are OK with what comes with living in a basement. If you know that you will walk in expecting a hotel, then you might not be a good fit for this apartment. I am one person and cannot do what a hotel can do, which is why hotels in the area cost three times as much. You will also be a good match if seeing some trace of my liberal politics won't offend you. Like a yard sign, for example. Stay with us between late May and early September and you'll have access to our member-only swimming pool, with a 50-meter pool, huge baby pool, sand volleyball, tetherball, foosball, ping pong, 9 gas grills for your use, a kitchen, freezers full of ice cream, live music and food trucks on the weekends. $5 gets you in Mon-Fri and 5 PM, $10 Friday evening-Sunday. So worth it! We are located 6 miles from the National Mall, 5 miles from the White House, 4 miles from University of Maryland, 10 miles from National Airport (DCA), 35 miles from Dulles International Airport, 27 miles to BWI International Airport, 4.9 miles from Union Station and the Capitol, 14 miles to NIH in Bethesda, 5.9 miles to George Washington University (GWU), 8.5 miles to American University. Guest AccessFree wireless Internet, private kitchen and bathroom, private entrance, free and easy on-street parking. Check-in time is 3 PM and checkout time is 12 PM. Interaction with GuestsWe are certainly going to do our best to help you, answer your questions, and meet your needs, but because this is a private unit you do not need to even see us if you don't want to. It's up to you. The NeighborhoodMount Rainier, MD is the closest you'll find to Portland in the DC metro area. It's diverse, progressive, and not completely shiny and gentrified. Mt. Rainier is right on the northeast border of DC, so it's easy to get to attractions from here. And we have so many of our own! Art studios, a glass school, a homemade ice cream parlor, what claims to be the oldest natural food co-op in the country, a vegan bakery and cafe, a nice restaurant/bar, an affordable and amazing yoga and dance studio so you don't have to miss a class while you're traveling, a groovy juice bar, West African drumming and dance classes, a library, and a huge, park-like swimming pool and grounds where every day is a folk festival. Getting AroundTwo blocks from bus lines, a short bus ride to the Rhode Island Ave. metro on the red line, a 20-minute walk/5-min bike to West Hyattsville metro on the green line, and four miles to University of Maryland. To get here from DCA you can take the metro to Metro Center, transfer to the red line in the direction of Silver Spring or Glenmont and get off at the Rhode Island Ave. station. From there, take any bus in the eighties or T18 or T14 and get off at the Mount Rainier traffic circle at 34th St. It's the only circle on the bus route, and it comes after the stop at Eastern Ave. Walk north (uphill) on 34th St. Go through the stop sign at Bunker Hill Rd. and take your first left after that onto Shepherd St. Go through one stop sign at 33rd and 3209 is the first house on the left after that stop sign. If you get on a bus that says "limited stop" or "express", that's a good thing. Another option, if you have heave luggage and don't want to drag it onto a bus, is to take the metro instead to the West Hyattsville station on the green line, where there is always a long line of Ethiopian taxi drivers waiting to take you places. A ride to our house form there is about $9 with tip. If you're coming from Dulles (IAD), well, the metro does not go out there yet. There's a bus from there to the West Falls Church metro station, so you could take that and then follow the aforementioned directions. If you're coming from BWI, there is a bus that takes you to the Greenbelt metro station and from there you could take the metro to West Hyattsville and take a taxi to the house from there. You could also take the shuttle bus to the train station and take an Amtrak or MARC train to Union Station, take the metro from there to the Rhode Island Ave. station, and take a bus to Mt. Rainier from there. See above for directions from Rhode Island Ave. station. You can see how long it takes to get here from wherever you plan to be by going to the WMATA website and mapping it out in the trip planner. Use Mount Rainier terminal on 34th St. as your point of origin. Other Things to NoteWe are considering installing something like AppleTV, but there is no television in the space yet. There is wireless, which, in 2016, meets most needs. Dogs and other species are welcome, but unfortunately cats are not. There is extra bedding in the wardrobe and in the drawer under the bed. As mentioned elsewhere in this listing, this is a basement apartment. The tub has a shower, and it is a clawfoot tub, so the tub is about 4 inches off the ground with a J-shaped shower. What that means is that if you are 6 feet tall, the shower head will be roughly at your ear level. If this is a problem for you you should probably not stay here. Again, this is a basement apartment. If you are in love with silence and you know that you would be miserable in a basement because you might hear people upstairs, then this probably isn't for you. Most guests, if they hear us at all, aren't bothered by hearing us upstairs, but different people are bothered by different things. You can rent a soundproof inner room in a hotel in Washington, DC for three times the price, but this is not that, which is why it costs less. I try to keep ear plugs around for super sound-sensitive guests.

The SpaceWe absolutely love our recently renovated home and are excited to share it with DC visitors who would like a comfortable and relaxing place. As you make your way through the private entry (located at the back of the house), you'll be in the basement level of the home. Your room is comprised of a queen-sized bed (sheets + comforter included) with a chair and a large closet. Two doors down is your full + private bathroom with towels. Outside your room + bathroom, we have a large dining/work table with a Keurig (should you desire any tea or coffee during your stay) and some breakfast foods.

If we are not available, instructions will be provided on how to access your key from the lockbox. We both work during the day but enjoy spending our evenings at home. We also enjoy meeting new people; so should you be around, we're happy to socialize - but will also respect your privacy. We do use the basement entertainment area, so if you happen to watch the same shows we do, you're welcome to join! We'll also be available for any ideas or recommendations during your stay. The NeighborhoodMount Rainier is a quiet, artsy, and Eco-friendly neighborhood. Our home is located 2 blocks away from The Glut (best food co-op around), a convenience store, + The Waterhole (the neighborhood juice bar), and another block away from Bird Kitchen + Cocktails. Other neighborhood favorites include: Potomac Fish House, Sweet and Natural (vegan bakery and soul-food cafe). If you're a cyclist or bike-commuter, consider bringing your bicycle along for the trip. We're are conveniently located near the Northwest and Northeast Anacostia Branch Trails and the Metropolitan Branch Trail; all great for exercising or bike-commuting into the city. Getting AroundThere is plenty of free on-street parking up and down Bunker Hill Road. We are a 2.5 block walk from Rhode Island Avenue, the main road to get you to DC (a 20-minute ride to downtown). You can easily hop on a metro bus that 10-12 minutes later will drop you at the Rhode Island Metro (red line). We also have plenty of Uber + Lyft drivers around to help. Other Things to NotePlease let us know if you plan on bringing a guest during your stay. You're welcome to use our washer + dryer with notice. We also have an iron + ironing board, hair dryer, shampoo, lotions, + other toiletries available. For your office needs, we have a wireless printer should you need it.

My place is located in the City of Hyattsville Arts District! And with over 60 restaurants and Hamilton Park and pool there is always something good within walking distance. The building was featured in the Walking Tour of Hyattsville Historic District and it is registered at the Hyattsville Preservation Association website. A Brief History of Hyattsville and The State of Maryland Hyattsville’s history reaches far into the past with archeological record indicating nearly 8,000 years of human inhabitance. Algonquin- and Iroquois-speaking Indians resided here in the more recent millennium. The first European exploration came in 1608. Animal resources, primarily beaver, were a strong attraction and hunters could transport easily their hides along the area waterways and American Indian trails. In 1783 the first American stagecoach route passed through this area, followed two years later by a postal delivery route. With settlement came farming; the local soil and slavery made tobacco production popular. Maryland authorized construction of the Washington and Baltimore Turnpike connecting the two cities via the Hyattsville area in 1812. By 1890 Hyattsville was one of only two cities in Prince George’s County with a population greater than 1,000. Churches, schools, athletic groups, and civic organizations formed in reflection of the growing community. A small immigrant and African-American population made Hyattsville their home from its earliest days. In 1892, Hyattsville gained international fame when it became the first American city to institute the single-tax system, taxing only land and not personal property. The ensuing court decision provides standing for today’s tax code. The city also boasted the area’s first newspaper, phone system, and utilities. By 1893, the electric streetcar connected Hyattsville to Washington, DC, businesses, boosting the population ever higher. By the mid-1950’s, Hyattsville began to look much as it does today. An area-wide street-name change in 1941 erased the nod to early inhabitants. With the closing of the streetcar line and the opening of regional bus service, the older shops struggled. Housing and retail development like Prince George’s Plaza shopping mall and Northwestern High School claimed the surrounding farmland where truck farms once supplied residents with fresh produce. Early efforts to preserve Hyattsville’s historic buildings began in the late 1970’s. Homeowners formed a preservation association and documented the Hyattsville Historic District which was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1982 with nearly 1,000 buildings of vernacular Victorians, Colonial Revivals, Sears homes, and Arts and Crafts influences. Hyattsville, at first glance, may be seen as a typical Washington, DC, suburb, with growth spurred by the railroad, streetcar, and automobile. However, its prominence in Prince George’s County was earned by its many firsts and innovative residents whose optimism and ingenuity make Hyattsville’s history unique. During colonial times, many people moved to the colonies because of religious intolerance and persecution. In England, Henry VIII had broken away from the pope and Roman Catholic Church in the 1530s. For much of the 1500s and 1600s, and even into the 1800s, English Catholics faced persecution and worshipped underground. George Calvert and his sons, Cecilius (Cecil) and Leonard, decided to establish the colony of Maryland in the New World as a haven for Catholic refugees. They also hoped to gain wealth from its development. Maryland's 1632 charter made the Calverts feudal lords and proprietors, with possession and control of the colony's wealth, profits, land, and much of its governance. While Maryland indeed became a safe place for persecuted Catholics to settle, many Protestants and Puritans left other colonies to settle there, as well. Maryland became torn by religious friction and political struggles between Catholics and Protestants. By 1649, Maryland had passed a law promising religious tolerance—a landmark in colonial American history. Although religious struggles would continue in colonial Maryland, it was generally considered more tolerant than other colonies. Maryland, (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). The first people to settle in what is now Maryland arrived more than 10,000 years ago. These Native Americans groups lived a nomadic lifestyle, hunting and gathering. Around 1,500 years ago, they began growing squash, beans, and tobacco. In time, Native Americans in this area began staying in villages for most of the year or even year-round. Most of these Native Americans were Woodland Indians who spoke an Algonquian language. Some of the key Native American tribes of Maryland at the time of European settlement included the Piscataway, Yaocomaco (or Yeocomico), Shawneee, Accohannock, Nanticoke, and Susquehannock. European settlement dramatically changed this area for its Native American population. For example, in 1500, before European contact, the population of Native Americans in the Chesapeake Bay area was thought to have been around 24,000 people. By 1650, due to war, disease, and migration, less than 3,000 Native Americans remained in the Bay area. The Chesapeake Bay area is thought to have been first explored by Europeans in the early 1500s. The English Captain John Smith later explored and mapped this region in the early 1600s. However, the colony of Maryland was not chartered until 1632 or formally settled until 1634. It was originally intended by its proprietors, George Calvert—the first Lord Baltimore—and his son Cecilius (Cecil)—the second Lord Baltimore—to be a refuge for English Catholics and a source of family prosperity. George Calvert, First Lord Baltimore.Read more about George Calvert's Newfoundland colony, Avalon. George Calvert did not become a Catholic until adulthood. For many years, he was a prominent politician. In 1617, he was knighted and then in 1619 named a secretary of state. When Calvert announced that he had converted to Catholicism in 1625, he had to give up his political position. That same year, Calvert was given the title of Baron (Lord) Baltimore. The Arts district is walking distance about 5 blocks. There's Prince George's Plaza Mall, it's a major mall with plenty of big department stores and shopping and resturants (food court inside) It's a short bus ride to the mall and to West Hyattsville Metro station and Prince George's Plaza metro rail subway system, the Greenline trains. My location is in between two metro stations with plenty of buses running every 15 to 20 minutes to go wherever you want in a short time. Enjoy your visit!! Getting AroundFree parking is available for your vehicle.

I absolutely love this city, and can't wait to share it. The NeighborhoodBrentwood is a quiet, artsy, and Eco-friendly neighborhood. Our home is located a walking distance from The Glut (best food co-op around), a convenience store, + The Waterhole (the neighborhood juice bar), and another block away from Bird Kitchen + Cocktails. Other neighborhood favorites include: Potomac Fish House, Sweet and Natural (vegan bakery and soul-food cafe). If you're a cyclist or bike-commuter, consider bringing your bicycle along for the trip. We're are conveniently located near the Northwest and Northeast Anacostia Branch Trails and the Metropolitan Branch Trail; all great for exercising or bike-commuting into the city. Getting AroundThere is free on-street parking up on our block. We are a 5 mins walk from Rhode Island Avenue, the main road to get you to DC (a 15-20-minute ride to downtown). You can easily hop on a metro bus that 10-12 minutes later will drop you at the Rhode Island Metro Station(red line). We also have plenty of Uber + Lyft drivers around to help. Brentwood is conveniently located a few blocks from Rhode Island Avenue, which is a straight shot into the heart of DC. Brentwood is the very first town over the border of DC, and residents enjoy all the major attractions and benefits of being downtown. There's an abundance of buses that go up and down Rhode Island, all of which end up at the Rhode Island Ave. red line metro station. The West Hyattsville green line metro station is one mile from the house. Also, the ever convenient 86 MetroBus picks up 1.5 block from the house and heads west to the center of the city. Uber picks up within a few minutes, and costs $10-15 to get to downtown. Uber is your cheapest and best option for getting into the city quickly, especially if you have a person to split the fare with. Parking available outside the house. If you plan on doing public transportation, you could ask me any question. Other Things to NoteHouse has hardwood floors throughout, central heat and AC units. We have a indoor cat, her name is Mitzi, she's very independent is pretty much like to live without pet. If you're allergic to cats, feel free to let us know. If you're not a cat person, no worries. She spents almost all the time around our bedroom and a back room and she won't bother you. We love meeting new people. Both of us we do speak Spanish as well.
