Newly renovated, sunny English basement in DC's historic Mount Pleasant neighborhood. Easy walk to the Columbia Heights metro, multiple bus lines, the National zoo, and lots of cafes and restaurants. Perfect for both families and business travelers. Relax in the beautifully furnished space while enjoying smart tv, cable, wifi, or take in the morning sun while sipping coffee in the back garden.
We renovated our basement with the intention of renting it out for travelers to experience everyday life in Washington, DC, while making their stay away from home as comfortable as possible. It is an open layout with plenty of room for little ones to play, and a bedroom large enough for a pack'n'play. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, and a Bodum pour-over coffee maker, and the bedroom has extra blankets, pillows, hangers, an iron and ironing board. We also provide detergent for the washer, and dryer sheets for the dryer. The back garden has a sand table, child's basketball hoop, cushioned outdoor sofa, table, chairs and a grill. If needed, we have a pack-n-play and highchair available, just ask!
Guests enter through the back garden (the door is visible in the outdoor photos) and then enter the apartment through the basement door. While there is a staircase from the basement apartment to our home, we keep the door locked and the kids away so that our guests have complete privacy.

We live in the main house, so any questions you have leading up to and during your stay, we are available.
Our back patio is a shared space, and our kids (4.5 and 2) are often outside playing, so we will likely come across each other during your stay.
You can access the back garden entrance off the alleys from either Lamont Street or 19th Street. When possible, we can offer our parking spot if you are planning to drive to DC. Street parking is available, but limited between availability, street cleanings March through October, and city zoning restrictions.
You will see the names Leyla and Matt in our listing as co-hosts. They run our cleaning service and ensure that your living space is spotless and fully stocked, as well as maintain the back garden.
Born and raised in Sweden, a stint in Barcelona, and now settled in DC with my husband and two kids. We love to travel, and enjoy staying in airbnb's when possible. We hope that we can make your visit to D.C. comfortable and enjoyable by welcoming you into our home.
