we could not have had a better experience. Our hosts responded to our inquiries before and during our stay. The house is perfect for the kind of family get together that we wanted. Located in proximity to Bethesda and Friendship Heights, the house also offers easy access to DC. It is a gem and the owners are extremely gracious and accommodating.

This is a beautiful home with an amazing view. It was close to my business needs and I felt all the comforts of home. The outside area is particularly inviting and peaceful. In addition to the amazing architecture, the hosts were fantastic!
My family and I stayed in Mark's house for the long weekend of my cousin's wedding. It was awesome! The house is beautiful and interesting. The house is perfect for a family get together or reunion because there are so many places to hang out in small groups and chat, listen to music, play the piano, etc. Mark and Nancy were wonderful. They left great instructions and set everything up perfectly (thanks Abakar!). Really, everything was perfect!
We just returned from our stay in Bethesda, Md. and we cannot say enough about how lovely this home was. It is just as it shows in the pictures and more! Unique award winning architecture built to the highest standards. Very comfortable.
Extremely clean, well equipped and kept. We made good use of the 8 passenger van. The owner obviously takes pride in this home.
He kept in very good contact with us and offered helpful recommendations and everything went smoothly. Great location to Bethesda and Wash DC.
We would highly recommend this property and if we are able to visit again, we hope we would be able to stay here again. Thank you for having us.
