We rent out 2 upstairs bedrooms in a house shared with my mother, a retired widow with a cat and dog.  She resides in the downstairs rooms.

Washer and dryer can be accessed in the basement.

I’m looking for a roommate for a two bedroom apartment in Arlington, Virginia. I love this place because it is a garden-style apartment, with big, beautiful trees out the window. It has wood floors throughout and classic Arlington charm.

The apartment is just over half a mile to the Courthouse and Clarendon metro stations and just up the street from Giant, CVS, The Italian Store, and Starbucks. It also backs up to the Custis Trail (which goes from Falls Church into DC). I walk to St. Charles Borromeo Parish several times a week, and it is also close to St. Agnes. Free parking is available. The place is also located near to a bus line that goes right into Rosslyn, and it is a five minute drive from the city.

The room would be unfurnished, and there is room to add furniture to the living areas as well. There is plenty of storage available in the main areas, and a small closet in the room itself.

The lease could be month-to-month, or for a year. (I plan to be in this place for at least another year). The rent for the whole apartment is $1725 per month, so $862.50 per person, and our internet bill has been around $85 per month ($42.50 per person). Also - a great benefit is that all utilities are included in the rent. It will be available the weekend of May 8/9.

Dogs & cats welcome!

If you would like more information, please call or text me: (202) 423-6642.

1 bedroom available for rent available immediately in a large, 5-bedroom, split-level house.  I am hoping to find a female graduate student who loves kids and would be interested in exchanging sub-market rent for ten hours a week of childcare and light housework (mainly cooking dinner).  If that sounds like it might be you, then please read on! 

About the room: Located in a quiet residential neighborhood within the Hyattsville Arts District, less than a block away from St. Jerome Church, and 2 blocks away from Yes!Organic Market, Busboys & Poets, Franklin's Restaurant, and a number of other restaurants and shops. The bedroom for rent (available furnished or unfurnished) measures 10'x10', is located in the basement and has an attached bathroom which would be shared with one other female graduate student, who is also living in the basement.  There is a private entrance to the basement, which also has a kitchenette and a living room with a Smart TV, couches, coffee table and chairs.  The basement living room is located in a common space in the main area of the basement which has a toy room on the opposite side, which is utilized by the family living in the home upstairs (more details about them below). House includes amenities (*which are shared with the family) such as: washer/dryer; beautiful backyard with outdoor seating around a fire pit, and a dining area under a pergola. Cost is $350/month, plus $50 per person/month for all utilities including cable/internet. 

About the family: Catholic single mom and three young ladies: aged 13, 11, and 8.  The girls are all old enough that they are fairly independent, but like all children, still need a warm & loving adult engaging with them when they are not in school.  Mom works at a non-profit in fundraising, thus the desire to find help with the kids after school (looking for someone who can help between 3pm-5pm or 3:30pm-5:30pm on weekdays). All three girls are very polite and just generally very sweet, good girls (although, of course, they aren’t perfect and do squabble with one another as sisters do!). They also all play piano and at least one other instrument, and in non-covid times are involved in choir and very active with soccer and other extracurriculars.
