Boendet
(Pssst... Quick favor if you're thinking about booking: Please read the entire listing as it likely answers any questions you may have. There's a bonus at the end. Thanks!) 

We have a beautiful studio apartment with new decor in our basement where you will feel right at home. There is a very comfortable queen size bed which has a memory foam mattress (which is firm), full kitchen and private bathroom with shower. The memory foam is firm for those who like to sleep on a sturdy mattress. There is a private entrance with an alarm system and washer/dryer in the unit. The upstairs area is a separate airbnb listing. In the event there are guests upstairs, the noise level may rise. We apologize in advance the house lacks good soundproofing so you can hear their footsteps and voices. We're working on soundproofing the door to minimize the noise. But, the soundproofing doesn't minimize the sound of footsteps. Keep this in mind when booking with us. A comfortable queen or full size air mattress is available upon request to accommodate a total of four guests comfortably.

It's less than a 15 minute walk to the metro and there is a bus at the end of the street to take you directly to downtown DC and other Tourist Sites. Located minutes from the Entertainment and Sports Arena, National Harbor, Tangier Outlet Mall, MGM Hotel/Casino, Capital Wheel and Homeland Security's New Headquarters. Ceiling and room fan to keep the air cool. Unfortunately, we do not have central air conditioning.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PLACE:
Q: Is it near the subway?
A: Very close to the subway—literally 10-15 minute walk or 5 minute car ride. Free metro parking on the weekends.

Q: Is the neighborhood safe?
A: Yes as long as you exercise caution and take an uber or lyft at night from the metro to your apartment. The subway is open until 1am on the weekends.

I also encourage guests to avoid the corner store. There have been several incidents which have been brought to my attention where people didn't feel safe.

Q: Do I need to bring towels, a hair dryer, or linens?
A: Nope! I provide all these things. Same with hotel-size toiletries (unless I happen to be out, which is rare).

Q: When can I check in or check out?
A: I will try to accommodate your desired check-in or check-out, no matter what time it is. Note that early check ins are not always possible if I have a guest leaving that morning, as I need time to have the room professionally cleaned for you. However, I can usually allow you to drop off luggage, and the room will usually be ready by or 1 or 2pm at the very latest. If you have a late flight, you are welcome to leave your luggage until at least the late afternoon. Late check-ins, even ones at 2am, are no problem at all (I promise you won't be bothering me).

Q: What's my total booking price?
A: I honestly have no idea. With fees included, Airbnb only shows the guest how much they pay. This figure should be present after you enter your dates. Note that, pricing varies on a daily basis, and Airbnb actually uses some crazy algorithm to adjust it automatically, so I don't actually control this.

Q: Will I have a key? Can I come and go as I please?
A: Yes and yes. And I wouldn't trust any Airbnb listing with which this isn't the case.

Q: Is the place professionally cleaned between guests?
A: Yes, and I take pride in providing a clean home for guests.

Q. Is there air conditioning?
A. No, however, we do provide two tower fans and have a ceiling fan which keeps the space pretty cool.

Q. Can we hear the guest upstairs?
A. Yes, you will hear their footsteps and voices.

Q. Can I hear the guests upstairs?
A. Yes, you can hear people walking and possibly talking upstairs and the floorboards may creek from the walking. We provide ear plugs to minimize the noise level.

I hope this guide helps you live like a local, no matter how long you are staying in the area. Please feel free to call or message me if you need anything or have any questions.

Now, you have read it all, please message me: "I'm Cool to Stay" in your introduction email.

Warmly,
Akosua and Clyde

Var du kommer att vara

Washington, District of Columbia, USA

Congress Heights is an old, authentic DC neighborhood on the far edge of the city; a quiet bedroom community named after the gorgeous views of the Capital from its hilly terrain. Compared with other DC neighborhoods, ours is quiet, friendly, and low crime, yet still emerging from the neglect of the late 80s and 90s prevalent in most inner city neighborhoods. Our home is surrounding by an ever-increasing cluster of bright spots of development, including the Entertainment and Sports Arena, Busboys and Poets (Anacostia), the Town Hall Recreation Arts Center (TheARC), Levine School of Music, St. Elizabeth Gateway Pavillion, Homeland Security HQs, rehabbed homes, several community gardens, and historic St. Elizabeth Hospital! As shocking as the community's decay can appear at first, the direction of change is undeniable and its pace is accelerating. It's primarily a residential, urban neighborhood undergoing striking transformation.

This is a working class neighborhood so there are not a lot of tourists, more restaurants are coming, or a few attractions in our area (Anacostia Museum). Most of our neighbors keep to themselves, going to and from work, children playing and people living their daily lives. Our location does offer you convenient, quick access to the city and main sites but far away to give you respite in a quiet, residential environment. We assure our guests you can access downtown and other parts of DC quickly and easily, especially by car or metro. Thus, we provide metro cards for your convenience. Our neighborhood is slowly increasing its options for retail--the closest grocery store is just over a mile away. However, there are no restaurants or cabs within walking distance from our home but there is the newly opened Busboys and Poets restaurant in Anacostia about 5 minutes away via car and 10 minutes via metro. In addition, there are a few food delivery options available in the area which we can recommend.

Our home is in close proximity (0.6 miles/1km) 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive to the green line (Congress Heights metro), St. Elizabeth's Historic Hospital, and the Nationals Baseball Stadium (2 stops away). We are 8 miles (12.8 km) or 10-15 minute drive (10-15 minute train ride) to all tourist sites in downtown DC. We are 15 minutes away via car from Reagan National Airport (DCA).

We are also conveniently located near Sports and Entertainment Arena, Homeland Security, St. E's, Gateway Pavilion, TheARC, and the National Harbor including the new Tanger Outlet Mall and MGM Grand Casino and Hotel. We always encourage our guests to drive or take an uber/lyft from the metro at night because this is still an urban area and safety comes first.

In terms of locally owned restaurants, we recommend enjoying locally owned restaurants such as Uniontown Bar & Grill, Mama's Kitchen, Turning Natural Juice Bar, and Busboys and Poets (newly opened). We are located within minutes from the emerging Anacostia Arts District featuring the Anacostia Playhouse and Anacostia Arts Center.

I love to travel, relaxing on a warm, sunny beach and practicing the art of joy. I am a native Tennessean, southern lady at heart, and have made DC my home for the past 10 years. I enjoy creating sustainable, healthy communities so I'm grateful for my work in international development supporting countries in Africa, Latin America and Asia. I had a minor in French in undergrad but I'm out of practice. I take every opportunity I can to strengthen my French speaking skills when I travel and meet guests from French-speaking countries. I really enjoy hosting and found hospitality is one of my passions. I'm always striving for opportunities to hone my craft. One of my favorite quotes is "You are not here to shrink down to less, but to blossom into more of who you really are." ~Oprah Winfrey
