Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Fiquei 15 dias na casa de Diane. Adorei! Foi a quarta vez que estive na região de washington dc. E pretendo voltar, ainda mais agora, que um lugar maravilhoso em bethesda encontrei! Foi a primeira vez que lá me hospedei. O quarto é impecável! É uma suite com muito conforto. E situada no centro da cidade, ao lado de restaurantes, lojas, livraria espetacular e também do crescent trail, uma linda trilha para desfrutar a natureza. Delicioso café da manhã preparado por Diane com o maior carinho. Bethesda é linda, florida, o metrô está ao lado, o ponto de ônibus mais perto ainda, mas se você quer saber o melhor de tudo, eu digo: é Diane! Obrigado!

  • I've stayed with Diane several times. Always she is kind and warm. Her listing says it like I feel - this is my home away from home in Bethesda. The apartment is clean and comfortable, it has easy access to dining, the Metro, and walking/running trails.

  • Great location, luxurious accommodations (including lovely breakfast), and the most gracious host...staying with Diane is comparable to a 5 star hotel. I would recommend wholeheartedly!

  • Diane is a gracious hostess who provided us with wonderful accommodations, tasty breakfasts, and all the little extras one could need when travelling. Parking and access to the Metro were very convenient, something of a rare treat in the Washington area. Diane provided us with directions, maps, and recommendations for restaurants close by. The cookies, tea, and conversation just hit the spot! We stayed for two days and I'm planning on another visit with her in the next month or two. "Came as strangers, left as friends" is a befitting phrase for our visit with her! Thank you.

  • The room is spacious, clean, and stocked with every amenity I could possibly ask for. It's located right in the heart of Bethesda, just a few blocks from the Bethesda Metro station.

    But the best thing about this room is the host, Diane! She is so accommodating and warm, and went out of her way to make sure my 1-night stay was as comfortable as she could possibly make it. I was even welcomed with a small plate of cookies, chocolates and biscotti, and sent off with a wonderful breakfast.

    I likely won't find myself in Bethesda again for a while, but if anyone else is thinking of booking this room, definitely do it! It was a wonderful experience.

    February 2014
  • My colleague and I were visiting DC for an academic conference nearby, so we chose to stay at Diane's place, mostly for it's convenient location (just a short walk to the metro red line and we were at the conference in less than 20 minutes). After staying here, I am so glad I went with Diane's place over anywhere else! By far the best hotel stay I've ever had. Diane is remarkably nice and thoughtful. She even made us an amazing breakfast the two mornings we were there! The room is very spacious, and the bed is super comfortable. Diane provides everything you can think of, and honestly the entire experience is very true to it's name "home away from home."

  • This was our first experience with AirBnB and it was delightful. Dianne is warm, friendly, and knows a lot about what is happening in her area. The location of her apartment is subperb with easy walking access to town and Starbucks. We highly recommend a stay with her on your next visit to Bethesda. We will be staying with again.

    Response from Diane:

    Thank you for your great review, and I wish you and Hans and very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Diane

  • A terrific A+++ experience. Diane made me feel welcome immediately and it's clear she enjoys being a host. The building is very nice, secure and clean and the room was perfect. Every 5 star amenity was available and I couldn't ask for more.

  • Anyone considering to stay with Diane should just 'book-it'!

    The location is excellent (2 min walk to Metro) the apartment building is nice, the room it self has lots of closet space, office space a self contained bathroom, is cozy, comfortable and big! The bed is super comfortable, it also has soft-high quality sheets and pillows.

    Diane is also a gem. She has a heart as big as the world, she is caring, considerate, respectful and generous. Her morning breakfasts were a nice treat with a great view over looknig the outside trees.

    I stayed with Diane for 5 days during a conference and it was wonderful experience. Thank you Diane!

  • Our stay was great in every way. Diane was molto simpatico, and the breakfasts were great. Our grand-daughter visited to check out the view, and we all had a lovely time.
