A large, nicely furnished, sunny and private bedroom in a house located in Rock Creek Park near Beach Drive and the Van Ness Metro station. The house is only 3 miles away from the White House, but It feels like you are in the countryside oasis with deer grazing in your front yard and walking and biking trails with waterfalls just around the corner. It is one of the safest, peaceful and most beautiful neighborhoods in DC-- Washington's best kept secret, indeed.
In addition to the Room, the house offers two large entertainment rooms on two levels. The main level room has a baby grand piano and a wood burning fireplace. The English Basement level invites you to play a game of pool or to enjoy a movie in the home movie theater, The porch is your own private bistro with a great view.
All utilities, wireless Internet, cable, laundry and the use of kitchen with your own separate refrigerator are included in one price.

The house is located between the 16th Street and the Beach Drive. The 16th Street is a straight line to the White House and the National Mall, where most of the Washington business and tourist attractions are.

Van Ness UDC (University of District of Columbia) Metro station (Red line) is across the park from the (website hidden) is a nice walk in good weather. However, I provide free shuttle rides to and from Van Ness metro station to all my guests as needed.
There are at least 5 buses running one after another along the 16th Street to Federal Triangle and National Mall. A bus stop is within a 7 min walk from the house.

If you travel by car or rent a car, you will appreciate going places in Washington via the Beach Drive, a very scenic shortcut to downtown Washington and into Virginia and Maryland. Off-street parking ( a rare commodity in DC ) is designated to the Guest Room guests.

Private Retreat. English Basement Apartment in Washington park area

Natasha and deer munching on the front lawn made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived. Her place is a cozy basement apartment suitable for a couple to stay. The queen bed is comfy in a separate bedroom and the kitchen is suitable. The adjacent gameroom with pool table makes the place seem larger and while the main bathroom is a bit cramped, a second bathroom in the gameroom came in handy. Off-street parking was a plus. Some improvement could be made to the sofa bed mattress, a screen door for ventilation would help, and some outside cleanup of the entry wouln't hurt.

Criticism: Moisture, small basement apartment with spiders and other pets / landlady is rude / No separately regulated air conditioning or heating (only on demand) / second bed (old, out put, 1.70 m long and is suitable only in an emergency for children) in the small kitchen next to the stove and a noisy fridge and a noisy ventilation system of the house / Only two dining seats / seating for 4 people / total size of the apartment is approximately 30 m2 / Very soundproof apartment with noise from 7 clock in the morning / Access not accessible, but a rough away / balcony or terrace not available

Conclusion: This apartment is absolutely NOT recommended!
