FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
1) Are you close to museums and downtown DC?
Yes! We are only a few minutes away on the metro (subway). We live in a safe and residential suburb with the convenience of being so close to downtown. Be advised that from the metro you have to walk to the house or take a bus. It is a nice and safe walk but people who do not like to walk won’t do well staying in our house (DC museums involve also a lot of walking so these people won’t be happy in DC anyway).
2) How many people live in the house?
This floor has 3 rooms. You will be sharing the bathroom with 2 other rooms. Depending on when you stay you could be the only one in the floor and get a full apartment for the price of a room. However, you must come to stay with us with the expectation that you will be sharing the common areas (bathroom, kitchen, and dining room) with others.
3) Do you provide breakfast?
We do not provide breakfast.
4) Is my child counted as an adult when making the reservation?
Yes, your child is counted as one person. If you are traveling with children please email me first.
5) Do you have pets?
There are no pets in this floor but the house is not suitable for people with severe pet allergies.
6) Why do I have to pay for a security deposit?
We have been hosts for a long time and have suffered many loses. The deposit guarantees that guests pay for the damages they do while at our home. If you are careful and take care of our things, the deposit is fully refunded when you leave the house.
7) Where can I do laundry?
There are Laundromats and dry cleaners nearby. As an added convenience we offer to do your laundry for a small fee ($ 10 per load), but we do encourage that you do it on your own.
8) Am I responsible to buy my personal toiletries and food?
Yes. Guests are responsible to bring their own personal toiletries and food. There various stores nearby. We ask everyone to be considerate and respect other guests (and hosts!) personal possessions.

Sehr sauber und gemütlich eingerichtet. Für unser Zimmer stand eine extra Dusche und Toilette zur Verfügung welche ausschließlich durch uns benutzt wurde. Sehr ruhig gelegen und wunderschön. Einfach zum Wohlfühlen!

The way from the metro station to the house was ok and so far away. The room was really nice and clean. We had our own bathroom and a extra room for our clothes. All together we had large space for everything.

Das Zimmer war schön und auch die Lage ruhig. Küche und Bad hätten etwas sauberer sein können aber war ok! Ist halt ziemlich außerhalb von Washington, man muss erst Bus dann U Bahn fahren und ist ca. 45-60 min unterwegs. Bus kostet 2,30 Dollar und U Bahn 3,10 Dollar beides natürlich p.P und Strecke! Ansonsten war alles gut! :-)

Leider war der Gastgeber zu dieser Zeit selbst nicht da. Sie informierte uns jedoch sehr zeitg darüber, daß ihre Mutter und der Stiefvater anwesend sein werden. Die Gastgeberin nahm fast täglich Kontakt mir uns auf und fragte nach, ob alles ok ist. Auch gab sie uns Tipps zu Sehenswürdigkeiten. Alles super nette Leute. Sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich. Man konnte sich sehr gut unterhalten und am letzten Tag wurden wir sogar noch mit Apple-Pie überrascht. Man fühlte sich fast wie zuhause in der eigenen Familie. Gerne das nächste Mal in Peru (dort steht ebenfalls eine Unterkunft zur Verfügung!) :-)

Our hosts were Isabelle and Patrick who were very very very nice and hospitable to us. We arrived while it was raining and because we were by foot we were very wet. And Isabelle and Patrick offered us a self-made soup which was very delicious. We talked a lot and i have to say, if i ever get the chance to stay ther again, i will do it.
Thank you very much Isa and Pat we had a great time in D.C.
