Basement in-law suite with exterior entrance, private bath, kitchenette and large living space. The living space has a dining table and chairs, bookshelf, desk/dresser, closet and twin trundle bed (two twin beds, one stores under the other, that can be pushed together to make a king bed) There is an outside entrance directly into the kitchenette. The kitchenette has a sink, storage, dishes, a full-size fridge, microwave, toaster, iron and ironing board, and the washer and dryer. Kitchenette also serves as the laundry room for the whole house and the family has additional storage in the basement outside of the large living space. Washington, DC is shaped like a diamond and the Takoma neighborhood is located near the very northern tip. We are only a 20 minute metro ride to downtown Washington, DC. The nearest Metro (subway) station is a 7 minute walk from the house, and one block away is a community center with tennis and basketball courts, an indoor swimming pool, and playing fields. Takoma is a very diverse, upper-middle class neighborhood and is quite safe. We have hosted a lot of exchange students over the years from all over the world, including people from Spain, France, Turkmenistan, Costa Rica, Mexico, Colombia, Egypt, Ukraine, Turkey, Venezuela, Brazil, Ecuador, The Netherlands, and Germany. We enjoy the cultural exchange aspect of hosting students, and think it is a valuable opportunity to expose our children to other people and cultures. All utilities, including internet, are included. The washer and dryer are also available for use. Meals are not included, but can be negotiable.

"We are the Switzky/Huntington family, and are excited to welcome you to Washington, DC. We are a family of five living in the Takoma neighborhood . A little about each of us. Karissa is kind, fun-loving and direct. She loves exposing international students to quirky aspects of American life. She's well traveled, makes chocolates and award-winning cupcakes, speaks English and Spanish, and is a little eccentric. Bryant is curious, friendly and a major music lover. He grew up speaking Spanish at home (though English is really his first language), plays the guitar and sings (he even has a couple of CDs out), and loves doing handyman work and spending time outdoors. Our 3 kids are ages 7, 4, and 3. They are a little wild but very lovable. If you're not a heavy sleeper they will wake you up by 8am on the weekends. We also have a cat named Octave. She loves to beg for food and rub on legs. She'll come when you call her (like a dog), but you can shut the door and keep her out easily."
