Interaction with guests

Since we live next door to the house, we try to greet all guests personally and give a tour of the house and address any questions. We require that all adults staying in the home are registered with us with full contact information. We, or a surrogate, will be personally available at all times. Please respect our property and our neighbors. Common courtesies and cordial interactions are expected.

The neighborhood

This home is in an urban and eclectic neighborhood at the nexus DC, Silver Spring and Takoma Park. Two Redline Metro stations are one-mile away--Takoma & Silver Spring. Our community is family oriented and quiet but with all the urban resources you need to easily shop, dine-out, see a film and more, many are within walking distance. We are also near 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. While you can get by easily without a car we also offer free parking. The neighborhood is very bike/walkable and transit is nearby but there is a car rental office nearby as well as hourly carshares at the metro stations. You will find this a convenient location from which to see the sites, work or study.

Other things to note

We will need contact information for ALL adults who will be staying in the property for any length of time.

Gail and Danny are great hosts. The accomadations were as described, 20 minute walk from the airp course. They were more than willing to help make our stay as comfortable and easy as possible. They even picked us up, offered to drive us to the grocery store, provided laundry detergent, and a space heater when necessary. I will be recommended them to all my collegues!

I can't say enough good things about our month+ with Gail and Danny in this lovely abode. My wife and I stayed with them for the first Christmas with our baby daughter after the two of them came to join me in DC. The house is walking distance to downtown Silver Spring, which has everything you need, and it took me only 40 minutes to get work in downtown DC. The house also has a great fireplace, which was great to have considering this was the coldest winter in many years--and Danny was very generous with his extra firewood. Both Gail and Danny did absolutely everything they could to make us all feel right at home. They were incredibly helpful and went above and beyond in every way. Among many other things, Gail gave a full orientation of the neighborhood, Danny helped me set up the Christmas tree, and Gail introduced us to other neighbors with children. Now that we've rented just a few blocks away, they've become amazing neighbors, as well!! The house was perfect for us. Gail and Danny are absolutely wonderful. You'll love it!

Gail and Danny's place was perfect for our small family during a 2 week stay. The house was comfortably furnished, had lots of natural light, and all the fluffy towels and clean sheets and extra blankets that we needed. The kitchen was well stocked which made preparing meals for our toddler son and ourselves easy and enjoyable. They even had the pots, utensils and casserole dishes that I needed so I could still make my favorite dishes to bring to thanksgiving dinner. They had a huge backyard, great for our son to run around, and were a very short walk to downtown Silver Spring. They were helpful and friendly through our entire stay, and even helped us coordinate the delivery and pick up of a crib that we rented - they even put the bedding on! We were very happy with our home away from home for the holiday and would recommend others! Thanks Gail and Danny!

Gail User ProfileGail is a superhost.

We have lived and raised our children in this eclectic part of the DC Metro area for 30+ years and will never discriminate against any person or group. We are self-employed, creative professionals and work from our home. Our B&B home and separate guesthouse are at the nexus of DC, Silver Spring, and Takoma Park Maryland.

We have enjoyed the acquaintances we've made in our 6+ years of hosting travelers and have over 100 positive reviews. Here are clips from some of our 5-star reviews: “Gail and Danny were absolutely GREAT! They were very helpful getting situated in the house. Gail was kind enough to pick me up from the metro station on the first day"…"The place is very conveniently located near the Silver Spring downtown, close to metro, restaurants, gyms, convenience stores"…."Danny and Gail were attentive while allowing us privacy and freedom to come and go as needed"…"We loved the casual and comfortable surroundings and the personalities of our hosts"…."My best [B&B] experience so far !!! This place is great, especially if you're an AIRP attendee ! :)" ..."This was truly a home away from home. If i ever go back to DC, I know where I'm heading." …"The house was lovely and exactly as listed, and the neighbourhood was safe, welcoming, and a short walk from anything you could possibly need"…"Their place was clean, cosy and comfortable. Plus, I had no trouble commuting into DC every day and I felt safe in the area around their house"…."The kitchen has a lot of room for cooking and it's always clean as well. It was actually a little sad to leave"…."This experience in [street name] avenue is one of those which we wont forget. The house is clean, cozy, and somehow unique and authentic"…."Better than expected: the house is big, cute, cosy, cleaned and you have everything you need. They are always trying to help you and are so respectful….” If you're new to the HomeStay concept, you will be "living with" others like you might connect with friends or family only possibly with more consideration. If you are looking for a cheap hotel we encourage you to consider our guest home listing, instead, where your group will have the entire house to yourselves.

We enjoy sailing, hiking, skiing and biking. Ask us about the trips we offer to Annapolis and sailing on the Chesapeake Bay. We're avid travelers and enjoy insights on other cultures, languages, cuisines and adventures.

Now that you know something about us, PLEASE give us the courtesy of sharing information about yourself, your group, and the purpose of your trip when contacting us about availability.

Safe travels,
Gail & Danny
