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.
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.
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.
Diane was delightful and so accommodating. A gracious host and a charming storyteller. The apartment was sunny & spacious and the bed & bath perfect and private! Walking distance to everything! It worked out so well.
Diane is a wonderful host. Personable, kind, and easy to chat with. She was also able to accommodate me at the last minute. The room is lovely and equipped with everything you might need (WIFI internet, printer/scanner, TV, in-room bathroom). There was delicious fresh fruit and chocolate as a welcome. If you are headed to DC, Diane's place is a perfect alternative to expensive hotels.
Located in the heart of Bethesda this stay was a complete match with my needs. The best part, however, was Diane as a host! She provided a clean and absolutely fantastic accommodation. Having traveled extensively for many years herself, her service for travelers matches all the needs on a journey. Little and big extras, a fruit tray, a separate printer, TV - you name it - was well beyond my expectations. Diane was a most pleasant host, provided tips for the city, transportation and the like and I vividly recommend her to everyone who considers a room in Bethesda!
