Looking for quiet, non-smoker(s)!
Always available to guests. The family lives and works on and beside the property. Access is only a call, knock or text away.
LOVE this neighborhood! Could not ask for better neighbors or better location.
Within a block, you will find Metro bus and rail access. Cabs are just a walk down the street to a major thoroughfare. Uber is very available and affordable. Also, a lot of people use Car2Go cars, which are parked all over the neighborhood.
We are dog lovers but understand that some guests may not be. Therefore, our little dog (FuFu) is not allowed upstairs. Thanks for understanding!
Guests will be given a code to access the digital lock on the front door at arrival. Guests are invited to use the backyard grill and picnic area for dining and entertaining. Or sit by the fire pit telling stories? Or rock on the big front porch and watch the dog walkers go by.

We have a little Bichon that lives with our family in the upstairs portion of the house. She may be found running around in the backyard at times. She is very friendly but also would love to escape if you leave the gate open. Just make sure it is shut behind you.
Clean up any food messes and take out the trash (deposit in the backyard trash can) upon departure. Also, be nice to our two bichon dogs should you meet them in the back yard. They are never in the studio apartment, however. Hot tub, gas barbeque grill, fire pit w/ firewood and lawn chairs available for guest use - just notify us if you have questions about taking the lid off or operation.
Family from Washington, DC with a daughter who is about to graduate from VCU and go on to the Peace Corps. Another son, a writer who graduated from college (VCU) and is waiting for his big break or his first novel to be published. And yet another son who is attending St Mary's Public Honors College studying Computer Science and Law. Maureen (the mom) is a musician, singer/songwriter and pastor along with David, also a pastor. Maureen teaches Zumba and Bang Power Dance at the dance studio across the street - proceeds going to the orphanage they support in Kenya. They are actively involved in the city and have several activities that involve feeding the needy families and homeless in the DC area. The house holds many artifacts and items of interest from their visits to Ghana, Kenya, Moscow and other fun places. Maureen collects cheap snowglobes. Not the expensive, nice ones. . .the cheap gas station ones. Her favorite? A snowglobe from Air Force One. House contains two vegans and three omnivores (5 omni's including Truman and FuFu, the dogs). Surprisingly, the family finds that DC is a great place to raise aware, inquisitive, artistic, independent kids. So what if none of them know how to drive a car? And, FYI, when we travel, we now use AirBNB. Not a commercial, just the truth.
