Interaction with guests
Guest access I like to meet and welcome you to my home whenever I can. However, if I am not available, you can get the key inside the lock box. I will communicate the code to open the lock box after you confirm booking. When you check out, if I am not around, you can leave the key at the same place. Guest interaction I usually work from 8AM-7PM. I am rather quiet. As much as I want to socialize with my guests, I also respect your privacy. I sometimes travel for work. Whether you see me or not, I am just a phone call, text message, or email away.

Stayed in Thangs appartement with 2 adults and 2 kids for 3 nights. It was clean and quiet. We could walk to the Capitol. Everything went well. One issue we had was resolved quickly.

Thang is a wonderful host! A great place to stay if you are looking for somewhere to stay close to downtown DC. The apartment is very clean and the neighborhood is nice. Thang was very helpful and we truly appreciated his hospitality.

This is a ground/basement level unit, about 15 minutes walk from the NoMa Metro and ~30 minutes walk to downtown DC. The place was nicely furnished, clean and safe. I felt very comfortable staying here - it felt just like home!

About the neighbourhood
Shaw is a fantastic neighborhood. It is very historic and transforming everyday. Just a few steps, you will find yourself in New York Ave/K St with countless dining and entertaining options, including a new modern 24-hour Safeway store. Another few steps in an opposite direction, you will run into Giant and several restaurants and cafes on 7th, 8th, and 9th streets. It is very central, about a mile or less to everything: Downtown DC, Chinatown, Logan/Dupont Circle, Columbia Heights, etc. Howard university is also nearby and less than 2 mile (20 minute walk) to Capitol Hill.
Getting around
MT Vernon Square/7th st Convention Center and Shaw/Howard University metro stations both are just 4,5 blocks away with green and yellow lines. Less than 3 minutes to have Uber come by. Two Capital BikeShare stations are just a few steps away on O st and New Jersey Ave.
Car not needed
How to get there
My home is 3-4 blocks from Mount Vernon Metro Station; there are several Capital Bikeshare stations, about 1 or 2 blocks away.
- It is just about 4 miles from DCA; or $10-15 Uber ride; you can also take metro from DCA to Mount Vernon station
- You can also take the silver line from Dulles International Airport and transfer to green/yellow line at Metro Center Station
- If you arrive in Baltimore airport, you can also Amtrak to Union Station which is about 1 mile to my home, about 20 minutes walk or $6-7 on Uber
