About this listing
Located in one of the Washington area's premier shopping, dining, and entertainment destinations - the apartment is on a quiet street with two parks across from the apartment. The neighborhood is very safe. The school where President Obama sends his kids is right next to my apartment. The Capital Crescent trail, a running/biking path that goes all the way to Georgetown, is very close to the apartment. Right next to my apartment is a bike store where you can rent a bike. There are two movie theaters within a short walk. The apartment is also nestled within Bethesda's famous restaurant collection. Really any type of store or shop you can imagine is within a short walk, e.g, Barnes & Nobles book store, Apple Computer Store, Giant supermarket, CVS, library, etc..
The apartment has Verizon FIOS wireless internet and cable tv. You will have your own bedroom that has a comfortable bed in it. The room has a closet, desk and two very large windows with great sunlight.
If you are in DC doing business at the NIH it is very close. If you have business in downtown D.C. it is a short walk to the Bethesda metro station which will take you right to the White House in 20 minutes. Zip Car is right across the street. Parking is available and easy. I have a guest pass with a parking space right outside the apartment that is available from 8am - 8pm. There is always parking on the street in a very safe neighborhood just outside the apartment that is unrestricted after 5pm and on the weekends. There is also a professional parking complex within a short walk that is free on the weekends after 10pm on Fridays.
The apartment is an amazing location. On one side of the apartment it looks out to downtown Bethesda on the other side a park in a very nice residential neighborhood. I'm sure you will like it.
You will have access to the kitchen and the washer and dryer for clothes. There is no smoking in the apartment. No pets. I will provide you with a key and of course can come and go at any hour that you please.
Chris was very personable and welcoming. The apartment is walking distance from a lot of restaurants/bars in Bethesda. The room was cozy, clean, and as described.
Chris was an excellent host and very accommodating. He was present when I arrived to let me in and reviewed the room, Wi-Fi, etc... and was very helpful to find out some information regarding the Metro. I have stayed here before and have returned. The room is as described and I arrived in the heat of an unusually hot day and the room was comfortable as was the bed. The neighborhood is quite safe and the neighbors are friendly and quiet. The grocery store is within 3 minutes of walking as well as excellent dining if so desired. Thanks again for a great experience. When I'm back in town, I'll stay here again.
Great room like on picture. Very friendly host. Very beautiful and quiet neighbourhood with great restaurants nearby. Subway station very close which offers quick access to the city. Would book it again
Chris was a great host and the room was perfect - the aircon was a relief from the DC heat and humidity! Very easygoing and personable host, the apartment is an easy distance from the metro also.
Chris was really helpful. He even accompanied me to the subway station. He was also a good talker. I would definitely come back at my next visit in Washington.
Clean place, good location right in Downtown Bethesda. Adjacent to Giant and close to a Trader Joes.
Chris was very friendly, and accommodating. He was happy to sit and chat, and give me his picks on where to go and what to see in DC.
About the Host, Chris
Brand new to this. I signed up two years ago to see what the site was about but decided not to do it. This past month, October 2013, I saw the owners of Airbnb interviewed on the Charlie Rose show and I was impressed with the company. I have an extra room in my apartment that I never use so I figured I would give this a try.
I am a lawyer with an MBA and practice business law. I am responsible but easy going with a good sense of humor. Being a lawyer might not make you feel any better but at least you know the bar did a criminal background check on me.
I hope to be a good host where I am attentive to your needs with a quick response but also give you your space and will not be intrusive.
