The Space

This English Basement apartment is in the quiet part of Bethesda, but is in easy reach of major arteries, NIH, Walter Reed, and downtown Bethesda (Metro) or shopping mecca Friendship Heights..

In addition to the king and queen bed, there's also an almost queen sized Ikea Beddinge futon. We don't have cable, but there is free Netflix on the TV.

Guest Access

Guests will have plenty of available free street parking, private entrance, access to the patio and BBQ grill. Our house uses WIFI calling

Interaction with Guests

The large apartment is one level down from where we live year-round so communication and key exchange will be a breeze. I can assist with any quick questions, but if you prefer to text/email that's good too.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is very close to highly rated Walt Whitman High School. As a result the neighborhood is very calm and warm with people jogging, walking their dogs etc.

Getting around

There is a Ride-On commuter bus stop right in front of the house. Most streets in this area have parking restrictions except for our street! Take the River Road exit from the beltway for simplest route by car. Ride On bus Rt 29 from Metro.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Ghina is a very lovely host, the flat is perfect, well situated, very spacious, clean, and all comfort.
    The place to stay if you want to visit DC !!

  • Ghina's downstairs area was worked great for us! We appreciated the comfortable beds, all the extra blankets, full kitchen, and full size washer/dryer. The water pressure in the shower was glorious! As far as I'm concerned, Ghina thought of everything to make the space comfortable and livable. The location is also great; the bus stops right in front of her house on weekdays, and we had free street parking for the car. It's a beautiful area and we felt very safe in the neighborhood. Finally, I'd like to add that Ghina is a friendly, welcoming host!

  • I stayed here for a business trip, very close to Bethesda, not that much traffic in the morning or evening. Complete cooking facilities, free parking and quiet. Overall, a great stay.

    February 2014
  • Our family had a lovely stay at Ghina’s house for more than three weeks. It is very roomy and clean, uncluttered yet comfortable. Bethesda is an up market neighbourhood in DC and to be able to stay in a two bedroom house at these rates, was a privilege. Ghina is a thoughtful host who clearly put a lot of effort into make her apartment special. There is more than enough storage space, huge comfy beds and the kitchen is well-equipped to prepare meals. The laundry basket was a nice touch.
    Ghina lives upstairs and works from home and is usually available for queries, yet she always waited for us to approach her and was very mindful of our privacy. (The rented basement has its own separate entrance). We are South African and as foreigners in the US had many questions and needed a lot of guidance. She even took us a-hamburgering, which went down well with the two teenagers in tow. I will never forget her homemade soup and hotwater bottle when we became ill, being used to much warmer climes. She also let me borrow her library card, giving me access to Montgomery County’s excellent library system which even allows one to borrow ebooks.
    My husband worked in Greenbelt while we were there and the said teens and I explored DC on our own. From Ghina’s apartment this was quite easy, as there is a bus stop only feet (or as we would say, metres) from her doorstep. It takes the bus ten minutes to the Bethesda Metro Station. From there it is about a twenty minute trip to downtown Washington on the Metro red line.
    This was our first experience with Airbnb and I would gladly recommend it to anyone as one gets a much better feel for a country and its people this way. Thank you for having us, Ghina!

    November 2013
  • Very nice apartment with private entrance in a wonderful neighborhood setting with convenient access to downtown and
    Bethesda. Comfortable beds and roomy living area. Ghina goes above and beyond to make sure her guests have everything they need. She responds very quickly to email or text questions or
    concerns. We would definitely stay here again.

    October 2013
  • Ghina is an extremely gracious and helpful hostess. She provided everything we needed and went the extra mile to make sure our stay was pleasant. She took an genuine interest in how to best accommodate us; she is friendly, responsive and attentive. Her apartment is a perfect place for temporary stay - it is extraordinarily spacious and is equipped with all new and tasteful kitchen equipment, linens and furnishings. The beds are very comfortable! and having two separate, large bedrooms is exceptional. Livingroom and kitchen facilities are cozy, well-lit for a basement apartmenr. Access to our own laundry and outside entrance was great too. The location is convenient and we appreciated the hassle-free parking and quiet neighborhood. We are so very grateful to Ghina for helping us get through our transition and would definitely stay with her again! A truly excellent choice we highly recommend!

Hi! I really love this city! (though technically I live in Bethesda, MD) I love that I can drive around the DC area mostly without a GPS. Feel very lucky to have my friends and family around, and I look forward to having the same homey feeling when traveling. Lately I've been doing 10 hour radius road trips, Toronto, Indianapolis, Asheville. Hope to extend that internationally soon. I'm the kind of foodie who likes good "bad food", and like Americans everywhere must have water around all the time! When I'm not doing mundane things, I like to work on my health oriented blog. It really is a way for me to remember the things I've learned during my research. I look forward to meeting new people whether they come to my place or am hosted. See you soon!
