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 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.
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.
