Approx. 1000 sq ft, English Basement, High Ceilings, Lot's Light, 2 Brick F/p's
Hi - this is my home. I live in the main house & hope my guests enjoy my English Basement. My wife and kids live out of town, so I'm away a fair amount of time, and love the neighborhood, where I work and enjoy.
Kent purchased this House in 2004
Why Kent chose Northwest Washington
It's a nicely renovated basement that I lived for awhile when I first bought the home, and designed it where I would enjoy living. 2 brick fireplaces, large bay window, plantation shutters, recessed lights, double vanity, dishwasher, washer/dryer in the unit. So close to vibrant U St, 14th St & 9th Sts - full of restaurants & bars. A little over a block to U St Metro - Capital City Bikeshare, close to downtown. Fun, a centrally located home.
What makes this House unique
On a great area (U Street Corridor near Logan Circle, Shaw, Dupont & Adams Morgan. Easy to get downtown, White House, the Capitol and all around. 1 1/2 blocks to the Metro (U St/Cardozo), Capitol Bike Share or Uber, Lyft or Cab almost anywhere. It's such a fun neighborhood - U St, 14th St, 9th St & so many neighborhood bars/restaurants to enjoy.

Great spot close to metro and all things DC
The owner was a pleasure to work with, provided great ideas where to eat and where to go. Got us a parking pass and details on how and where to park-which is very helpful and important detail!
cozy and accommodating basement
Kent was great to work with. He was able to get us a parking pass and shared helpful tips about the city. There were 4 of us in our party (2 adults and 2 kids). We had plenty of room.
You are walking distance to restaurants and Trader Joes. You can easily uber, drive or take public transportation to the city. FYI each time we took an Uber it cost $10 each way. The beds were comfortable. We were able to make breakfast with the portable hot plate. I would recommend this place for others to stay and I would stay here again. He checked on us to make sure everything was going well. Thank you for a great stay!
Great Neighborhood and Easy Access to Metro
Kent was a great host and very responsive to questions. The place is cute, quaint and clean. The Metro and great restaurants were just around the block. Will stay again when we come back to DC. Thanks Kent!
Good Value and Great Host!
Good value property. Great location in the U Street district with lots of restaurants, bars and close to the Metro. Easy access to all the sights in DC. Kent the host was excellent and very helpful with any requests. The English Basement is in an old house so the layout is a little quirky. Beautiful bedrooms and big bathroom. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Comfortable home away from home.
This was a very comfortable and clean apartment. It had all the amnesties that we needed (the kitchen is a bit small but fine for a few days). Kent was very helpful.
Really enjoyed our stay here. It was very clean. The owner was very prompt in answering all our questions. You could walk to the Smithsonian mall or it was a quick Uber ride.
