About the property

Enjoy All That DC Has To Offer With The Metro Just Steps Away

-- The Space

This spacious 450 sq. ft. and fully equipped private studio apartment is on the ground level of our house. It has a private entrance located on the back of our house, private bathroom, comfortable queen size bed (sleeps 2), a pull-out couch (sleeps 2), a dining area and a kitchenette. The kitchenette has a microwave, coffee maker and a fridge. We also have utensils, plates, glasses and mugs. You can prepare basic meals, such as sandwiches and oatmeal, but please note there is no stove and you will not be able to cook. The studio has its own heating and cooling system, which is controlled separately from the main house. Our street is very well lit and has free parking! You can park your vehicle there.

-- Guest Access

Check out is by noon, check in is after 3 pm. You will have a private keyless access to the studio.

-- House Rules

We feel it is important to respect our neighbors, therefore please be mindful, especially late at night. No smoking allowed inside the studio; no unregistered guest(s) and parties.

Please leave things where you found them and respect the furnishings and appliances in the studio. Turn off the lights and AC when you are out and about.

-- Interaction with Guests

We are generally around during the evenings and weekends, unless we are traveling. There is a chance that you will hear us getting ready for work in the morning during the week.

You have your own entrance to come and go as you please. We are happy to interact, answer any questions you may have, but also respect your privacy.

-- The Neighborhood

Petworth is a vibrant community with lots of long-time residents and many young families and professionals, such as ourselves. It is a diverse, but quiet residential neighborhood, composed of tree lined streets and brick row houses from the 1920's. New luxury apartments and condos have begin emerging along Georgia Ave.

Various public transportation options are within minutes, which makes the neighborhood accessible and easy to navigate to and from.

There are many international food options in the neighborhood, including French, Caribbean, Mexican, El Salvadorian (try the pupusas!), Ethiopian, Slavic, and Scandinavian.

Historical sites nearby include Lincoln's Cottage, Old Soldiers' Home, and Rock Creek Church parish.

-- Getting Around

Our home is close to DC's most popular sites and destination. Getting around is easy and convenient, with the Metro and bus stops being minutes away.

- 8 minutes to restaurants, bars on Upshur and Georgia Ave

- 15 minutes walk to Petworth-Georgia Ave Metro Train Station

- 8-10 minutes walk to grocery stores (Safeway, Yes! Organic Market, Farmers Market on Saturdays form May to October)

-- Other Things to Note

We have a Boston Terrier, who does not go to the studio. He is too busy guarding the couch in our living room. He does not bark. As pet owners and frequent travelers, we have constantly struggled to find accommodations for our dog. Consequently, we consider pets on case-by-case basis, please inquire.

We live in the home and you will most likely hear us at times when we are getting ready in the morning to go to work and at night when we are home watching TV, cooking etc.

Our home has surveillance cameras installed on the front and back entrances, so be sure to smile for the camera.

About Teodora Dimitrov

Hi there,

My husband Stoyan and I moved to Washington DC because we fell in love with the city during a trip we took a few years ago. Soon after moving, we purchased our row house and are excited to have become VRBO hosts, as it is our preferred method of lodging. We were both born in Bulgaria and would be happy to tell you more about our background and travels.

I am an avid salsa dancer, who goes out social dancing every week. Stoyan enjoys riding his motorcycle and playing soccer. We also spend quite a bit of time outdoors walking Bimmer, our Boston Terrier. We like to travel and take every opportunity to do just that.

We look forward to being your hosts!

This is a very comfortable place to stay. The hosts are extremely helpful and kind.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment has everything you need to relax, be comfortable and catch some good sleep. It is a quiet house in a quiet neighbourhood. A fifteen minute walk gets you to Metro and there are restaurants in the neighbourhood too. Because it is in the basement, there is not much natural light. The coziness makes up for this. Thank you!

Private and cozy spot in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a friend over Inauguration weekend and it could not have been more perfect! This felt like our own little hotel room with its private entrance, adorable decor and fantastic amenities. While the studio is in a quiet part of town (no loud street noise or heavy traffic) it's only a 0.8 mile walk from the nearest metro station which allows for great access to anywhere in the city!

Very clean, comfortable, and hospitable - Great rental

  • 5 of 5

My dad and my young son and I stayed in this studio rental. Very clean and everything you could need. About 15min walk from the Georgia Ave-Petworth Metro. Within walking distance we ate at and recommended Timber Pizza, Slim's Diner, Highlands, and El Torogoz. If you run it's a little over a mile from georgeous Rock Creek Park with lots of trees and trails or Fort Totten Park too. Really easy to use Uber from this location too. We took the metro from the Regan airport and an Uber back. We had a great time and Theodora is super friendly and nice.

Cute studio with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

The studio looked exactly like the pictures and was perfect for our visit to Washington DC. With so much sight seeing to do we really just needed a place to sleep, get ready, and that was close to public transportation (the bus stop was about 2 blocks away and the Metro station was about one half mile.) The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom clean and there was a fridge and microwave for breakfast or evening snacks. The couch pulled out into a bed which worked perfect when our daughter and her fiance joined us for two nights and we slept 4 adults in the studio comfortably-- two in the bed and two on the couch. There was a TV available which we never had time to watch :)

The best part about this rental is Teodora and Stan the owners who live above it. They were very attentive, willing to help us out when we were lost, gave great recommendations for local places to eat, and willingly explained the best ways to use the public transportation! We will definitely use this property again on our next visit to DC.
