Assistant Professor moving to DC seeks furnished home, by month, semester or academic year

I'm moving to the DC area for the academic year, starting mid August 2019. I'm seeking a base while I teach at George Mason University - Arlington campus. I don't drive, so I'm seeking something close to public transit, up to one hour commute to university.
I'm looking for short or longer terms housesits or rentals. My dates are flexible. I'm an experienced cat sitter and also take great care of plants.
I'm clean,quiet-living and responsible.
I have a base in Minneapolis so will be traveling back there in breaks, giving more flexibility for house sits or short term rentals. Thanks!

I'm a world traveller, originally from Australia. I've followed my lifelong passion for art and education, and worked in art schools all around the world. Visiting art museums is one of my favorite activities. I recently completed my Phd in Interdisciplinary Arts, and as part of my research, I designed a new, experimental artist's museum. In terms of home, I'm an introvert. I'm quiet, clean, peaceful, and enjoy time at home alone working, reading, watching films and cooking. I'm a non smoker and don't have pets or kids! Some other things I love: sunlight, plants, flowers, trees, birds.
