Guest Access

In addition to bedrooms and bathrooms, guests have access to both kitchens, living room, dining room, back deck and yard, laundry facilities, linens, driveway, bikes.

Interaction with Guests

We live next door to the house and take our interaction cues from our guests. Some are more private than others and we respond accordingly. We appreciate at least meeting everyone who will be staying in the house and otherwise remain available as a resource if needed.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is very urban and eclectic. We like the diversity this brings to our restaurants and the food offered in our grocery stores. There is a wonderful Thai grocery across from Safeway. And there are Ethiopian, Vietnamese, Thai and Burmese restaurants all within walking distance. We are also walking distance to a tranquil woodsy park with a lovely hike/bike/jog trail along a creek.

Getting around

We are a mile from 2 Metro stations and one-half block from a bus stop. Also the neighborhood is very bike/walkable. If you want to grab dinner, a movie or meet friends after work or sightseeing in DC, take the Metro to the Silver Spring Station. If you want to unwind or decompress, get off at the Takoma Station (also cheaper from DC) and enjoy walking along the residential, tree-lined street back to our house.

Other Things to Note

We have had great guests and there are many we have truly missed after a long-term stay. We recently posted a world map to plot the origins of our guests and have had representation from every continent except Antarctica. We can honestly say we don't just do this for the extra income. We like sharing both our homes and we want you to be comfortable and enjoy your visit.

We have a home-based creative services business and 2 young adult children. Our son is in college and our daughter is a recent grad. We have lived in the DC Metro area for 30 years. Our current home is in the "inner burbs" of Washington DC but we've lived in various neighborhoods throughout the city. We consider ourselves progressive urbanites and enjoy DC and all it has to offer. Ask us for recreational, cultural and entertainment activities for our guests. We have enjoyed the acquaintances we've made through hosting travelers in our rental property. PLEASE give us the courtesy of sharing profile information about yourself AND any adults traveling with you before booking. We enjoy sailing, hiking, skiing and biking. We often have extra bikes around for our guests to borrow. We're avid travelers and enjoy insights on other cultures and sharing travel adventures. In addition to traveling throughout the US, in recent years we've been to Europe and Central and South America. We hope you find our profile information and reviews helpful. Now it's your turn!
