About this listing
Our house is conveniently located near NIH, Suburban Hospital, German School and French School. We are surrounded by lots of trees and you feel as if you were in a countryside. You have your own entrance, but you are welcomed to join us upstairs.
Separate basement apartment in a home with its own entrance. Carpeted.
We added a second bedroom to the apartment. After 2 people, if you would like to have 3rd and/or 4th, you can use the 2nd bedroom.
Kitchen/Living room has a comfortable sofa and a chair, big refrigerator/freezer part, a microwave, toaster oven, coffee machine, HDTV, wireless internet access (20Mbps), table top stove.
We updated the bedroom with 2 full size beds. It has ample space with a big walk-in closet and a Washer/Dryer combination. Iron, lots of clean towels, sheets and blankets, extra ones available. It has two windows in the bedroom.
Parking is no problem on our driveway, right in front of the door to the apartment.

It is less than 10 minutes drive to the DC border (Western Avenue) and about 20 minutes drive to the center of DC, including Georgetown, National Zoo, Adams Morgan, National Cathedral, Smithsonian, and White House etc.
To Virginia, it is about 5 minutes drive to the Beltway (I495) and you are in Virgina in 2-3 minutes from there.
Please ask what else you need in the apartment. I am very happy to provide what you would need if I can :)
If you need one more room for an extra person, we are adding a second bedroom in June 2013. Otherwise, we might have a room in the house, our living floor, with extra charge. Please ask me about it.
We are in a safest and nicest community in the Great Washington area. We are surrounded by lots of trees and you can walk around all over the place. You will see lots of road bikers or runner on Bradley Blvd, in a group or individually.
The public bus stop #36 to Bethesda metro station is across the street. It's a commuter bus. It only runs Monday-Friday.
There is another bus #47 from Greentree road, which is about 10 minutes walk from home. It goes to the west gate of NIH and to Bethesda metro station. It runs on weekends, too.
The metro station Bethesda is on Red line which leads you to Washington DC or to Rockville/Shady Grove to the north.
Other Things to Note
I won't recommend this apartment to guests who want to cook real meal everyday. It does not have a normal cooking oven and no exhaust system yet.You can make ham and egg or such for breakfast, you can make soup and some meal but it is limited.
We have necessary pots and pans and dishes.
We are friendly people and we respect you and your privacy. You are welcome to come upstairs to join us or you can stay all by yourself. Our house is well sound proved and we can barely hear that you are there. You might hear us walking or running but we try to be quiet!
Let me know whatever you need and we will accommodate as much as possible.
