Our neighborhood is a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city but so close to the city you feel like you're in the middle of everything. Our house is surrounded by bamboo and the backyard is a serene place to enjoy a quiet morning cup of coffee or a glass of wine in the evening.
We have a bus stop right around the corner and the metro stop is only a 15 minute walk so going to downtown Washington DC is super easy. There is also ample street parking at the house with no time restrictions so you can park your car when you arrive and not touch it again until leave- if you want to. The buses and metro take you directly to all the top site seeing locations including museums, shopping malls and monuments. No need to pay high parking rates in the city.
The neighborhood is quiet so no loud noise outside after 10pm.
Thanks to Elizabeth and Alex for their warm welcome. They are very good hosts. Great place, safe neighborhood. The house is very clean and spacious, close to metro. There is a place to park the car. Thank you for everything. Caroline et Jean-Philippe
