A cosy room in a family house in a quite and safe neighborhood, close to the metro and buses. Jasmine is a very helpful and friendly host, I had a good stay.
This is a perfect accommodation for exploring Washington!

Un alojamiento perfecto. Está en una zona muy tranquila, a unos 15 minutos de la parada de metro. Los dueños nos trataron estupendamente: nos dieron indicaciones sobre Washington y en todo momento estuvieron atentos para que nuestra estancia fuera lo más cómoda y agradable posible. Todo los servicios que anuncian en la web se ajustan a la realidad. Recomendable 100%.

Actually I never met the hosts during my stay as they were not in the country. But they informed me on this and Kayla, who welcomed me, was kind and very informative. The room was clean, comfortable and big enough. I did not use the kitchen but Kayla showed me how to get there, it was nice too.
Takoma is a bit far from the city but metro in DC is so good, it is not problem at all. In 20 mins you can get to heart of the city.
The house is 20 mins walking distance and I always walked. The neighborhood is good, I never had a problem even I was walking to the house around 1:00 AM once. The only problem, not sure if it is considered as a problem, the door was looked twice and I could not open the door using my key, so I had to call Kayla while she was sleeping.
Go and stay there, nice place.

Jasmin and her husband were wonderful hosts, very accommodating and helpful. They gave us a lot of help for orientation, city maps and even their camera to make pictures. We could even store our luggage the hole day after checking out to enjoy the rest of the time in Washington.
If you book her apartment, you are part of this living community for a short time, get to know her husband and her mother as well as other possible tourists. The rooms are close to each other, so it's very personal. This, of course, implies some restriction. On the other hand you have the possibility to get to know something more personal apart from common tourist programs in Washington. I really appreciated their confidence in us and the insight they gave us into their daily life.
The way to the train station is easy, but appears to be long. You have to calculate 20 min at least walking. But the streets are really beautiful, the area is very safe and the connection is great. We really enjoyed our stay.

We had the room with private bathroom, the only rented room upstairs. We used the kitchen with Jasmims Mum and the other guests downstairs. Everything is clean and we felt very comfortable. Jasmim, her husband and her mother are nice and helpful hosts. They were always concerned for our well-beeing. They offered "smart card" (a kind of prepaid card for the metro) and informations about the neighborhood (maps, etc.).
It`s a ten minutes walk to the laundry (2 usd per load, 25 ct per 6 min. dryer) and a big supermarket ("Shoppers", reasonable prices)
It takes 15-20 min. to go to the Takoma Park Metro Station; frequent service, about 15 min. to the National Mall for example.
There is a cat and a dog, very well behaved!
It seems if they had bad experiences with guests in the past. We can wholeheartedly recommend!!!

Nice Room Private Bath by Washington DC

Comfortable very clean private accommodation in the semi-basement. A pleasant suburban area. 15 minutes walk through a delightful residential neighbourhood (all the cherry blossoms in bloom) to the train station and frequent trains to the centre of Washington. Very pleasant and helpful hosts. I have no hesitation in highly recommending this place.
