We had a two night stay with Gerald in late October, I had been in correspondence with him right from the point of making the booking; he is an extremely hospitable and welcoming host in email just as he is in person, making sure I had the right directions and confirming the time of my arrival to ensure he would be ready to greet me.
Gerald has a wealth of knowledge of the DC area and was fabulous at offering suggestions from how to get around (including metro maps) to answering questions about the best places to eat locally and in the downtown area. His guesthouse is conveniently located a short walk from the (Brookland-CUA) metro stop and is in a very safe neighbourhood.
Aunt Beas is a guesthouse (effectively it’s a B&B), there are only a few rooms, located upstairs with a shared bathroom (I think one room has an en-suite bathroom); there is plenty of seating outside in the garden or on the verandah; we found it relaxing and great to know we we’re heading back to at the end of each day (rather than to a soulless hotel room).
Our room was comfortable, there is plenty of space (in the room) to store bags without feeling cramped; we heard little noise (no traffic or sirens) and we slept well each night.
As has been mentioned previously – breakfast is a two-course treat. We were lucky enough to have Gerald to ourselves in the morning and we were grateful for the conversation.
We had a memorable stay and we will definitely return every time we pass through DC.
