You (and a friend) can stay in a guest room/library filled with books. The couch folds out into a twin-sized sleeper and there’s a queen fold-up foam for couples (or a twin air-mattress for those who want two beds). There are friendly dogs and cats in the house. You’re welcome to relax in any of the shared spaces.

The house is off 395, a 15-minute drive into DC. Lyft or Uber usually costs $7-$12 for most DC locations. The house is near many bus lines that can get you to metro stations.

El alojamiento

The house is unique, let’s put it that way. It’s an old colonial built in the 1940s that has six tiny floors with one 12-foot x 12-foot room on each floor. Starting at the bottom you have the basement, the guest room, the kitchen, the living room, the bathroom, and the master bedroom. The house is filled with original art: many portraits of famous writers, artists, musicians, and politicians and over 100 pieces of art hanging on the wall; it’s kind of like staying in a tiny museum. The backyard is spacious and has a hammock, picnic table, and grill. The front porch area is nice and cozy, a great place to hang out with a glass of wine. There are lots of stairs in this house, so please take that into consideration before booking.

As for the guest bedroom, it’s a library when you’re not there and a guest room when you are. In this space you’ll find lots of comic books, pulp novels, and a collection of fiction and non-fiction prose works. There’s also a TV in the guest room with an X-Box that’ll let you watch Netflix, HBO, Hulu, or Amazon Prime. The couch folds out into a twin-sized sleeper and it’s a perfectly cozy space for a single traveler. If you’re traveling with someone, there's a queen air mattress if you’d like to share a bed or a twin air mattress if you’d like two beds. Sheets, towels, robes, and slippers will be provided (heads-up: it’s a shared bathroom). The room is only being rented during days when someone’s around since two adorable dogs and two wonderful cats (who both stay out of the library/guest room at all times) live here and whereas you’re a wonderful person…you don’t want to be a pet sitter and the pets don’t want to be left home with strangers.

If you smell something cooking, you’re welcome to partake. There’s almost always freshly-made bread in the house, and you’ll often smell something wonderful coming from the kitchen. If no one’s around, you can have full-access to the kitchen or there’ll be some cereal in the cabinets or yogurt in the fridge.

In addition to the kitchen you’re more than welcome to hang out in the living room (complete with an X-Box One which also has Netflix, HBOGo, Hulu, and Amazon Prime), and bathroom (it is a shared bathroom, and sometimes a little advanced planning is necessary). There’s keyless entry, and you’ll get a code that will work or the front door or the back door (which leads directly to the rented room) in case you wanted to come and go with a little privacy. There’s WiFi, the code will be in the guest room. The place is kept clean, a cleaning crew come by every two weeks to keep everything nice and sanitary.

Location? It’s GREAT if you have a car. Right off of 395, a quick 10-15 minute drive into downtown DC without traffic. For that reason, it’s also a great Uber or Lyft ride, usually runs around $8-$15 dollars to most downtown locations, and Uber Pool or Lyft Line is routinely $7-$10, sometimes as cheap as $5. It’s OK if you need to take public transportation. There are several buses that stop down the block from the house or you can walk down to Shirlington for the most options (about a ten minute walk) - maps will be provided. Shirlington itself is packed with restaurants and bars and little shops, so it makes for a good late-night, not-ready-to-go-home yet option. And I’m usually heading into the city or at least driving by a metro station so, if our schedules match up, don’t hesitate to tag-along with me. Retrospective note: After doing this for over a year now, the conclusion is that Uber Pool and Lyft Line costs the same as metro for two people and takes significantly less time to get to where you want to go. It’s also cheaper than parking in downtown DC.

La habitación tiende a correr más frío que el resto de la casa. Hay un calentador de espacio y un montón de mantas para ayudarte con eso. Skippy (un terrier de rata de cinco libras) será genial cada vez que caminar en la casa. Así que, prepárate para eso.

The guest room tends to run colder than the rest of the house. There's a space heater and plenty of blankets to help you out with that. Skippy (a five-pound rat terrier) will great you EVERY TIME YOU WALK INTO THE HOUSE. So, be prepared for that.

It's pretty laid back here, so please feel free to mingle on upstairs or sit outside. I have more outside space than inside space. If it ever gets too loud, with dogs or neighbors or even with me, please don't hesitate to let me know. I tend to be up pretty late when I'm against deadlines, but usually in my office. I might occasionally binge watch a new Netflix show until 4AM. Speaking of, if you want me to move the extra TV and X-BOX into your room, let me know. This way you can watch Netflix, Amazon Instant, or HBOGo. If you have any food allergies or dietary restrictions, please let me know. I'll build my meals around it in case you want to partake. Grab a book if you want to read, feel free to write in it or mark it up if it doesn't look too expensive. You'll know which ones are the expensive ones. They tend to be oversized and filled with hundreds of fantastic illustrations. If you let me know what books you like, I'll leave a book on the recommended shelf. It'll probably be a comic book. And the backyard gets some great looks at the sky, so help yourself to the telescope.

While you're here, the downstairs room is all your's. I won't go in there without giving you notice and receiving confirmation, and even that will only be if I really need a book from down there. Outside of any emergencies, of course. The laundry is right next to your room and it's free to use.

One final rule: my dogs and cats are my number ones, they are the sweetest little guys and gals. Avoiding them or being nice to them are the only two options.

Both Jason and Liz are wonderfully laid-back kind of people. Eclectic to the max and the house oozes personality. I'm thankful they opened up their house to me and if they ever get that second bathroom installed then it would really be a comfy standalone unit. There is a short 10 min downhill walk to the Shirlington Village which includes a public cycle rental spot by the bus station, but remember that it's an uphill walk on the way back (not too bad, just don't do it after too many margaritas!). There is a very comprehensive compendium of what to do, see, and how to get about in the sleeping room, and Jason (and also Liz) are really helpful and communicative. I would definitely recommend!

Jason gave us the precise descriptIon of direction though we got lost after dusk. His information about Washington D.C. was helpful. Once you know the way to Shirlington station, it will be easier to get to Pentagon from home.

Jason/Liz are great hosts. They are both kind and outgoing. They had great advice about Washington DC and Arlington. Their place is nice and conveniently close to D.C. and Arlington National Cemetery. They add a lot of personality to their house in their decorations. We only stayed for two nights and were rather busy but, judging by our brief interactions and their home, both Jason/Liz are very fun people. I would definitely stay again!
