I enjoyed staying at Suzanne's house. It was very clean and very well-appointed. Suzanne was very welcoming, kind, and flexible. I would stay again. Also, the house is very convenient to downtown Bethesda, but is itself in a very peaceful, safe neighborhood.
Suzanne was a wonderful host. She was available if needed and answered all our questions. The house was as described. The neighborhood was in a safe, quiet area. It was close to Metro, grocery store, restaurants and drug store. It was perfect for 3 widow ladies. We each had our own bedroom. We would highly recommend Suzanne's place and definitely would stay there again if in the area.
Well-located and convenient to downtown Bethesda and the metro if you want to explore DC and are unable to drive. We really liked the neighborhood with easy access to the Capital Crescent Trail. Suzanne was very accommodating and responsive. The house is modest, but had everything we needed during our stay.
We were very happy with our stay in Bethesda. Suzanne was very helpful with sharing ideas for places to eat and visit. The house was close to the subway so we didn't need to rent a car. It was a quiet neighborhood and very walkable. The house was just as described. We had teenagers with us and they enjoyed the stay. The house was ready for us when we arrived. Although we did not meet Suzanne, she called a few times to make sure everything was well. It was a good location for a visit to DC.
Suzanne's house was perfect! My parents stayed here for a few weeks while visiting Bethesda and loved being able to walk to town so easily. Suzanne also came by to shovel the driveway when it snowed and was a gracious hostess in every way. I highly recommend this house!
Me and my family (including two kids-five and two years old) really enjoyed our stay with Suzanne in Bethesda. The house was in a quiet and safe area with a great playground just up the street. Walking to my work at the NIH took me around 20 minutes. Suzanne was very kind and helpful.
We loved our stay at Suzanne's home in Bethesda. The location was in a wonderful, safe neighborhood, within walking distance to the metro and to shopping and restaurants. We especially loved the fireplace and making the house "ours" for Christmas.
Suzanne was the perfect host. Being there to introduce us to the house and being available through text messages when we had questions. The rest of the time we enjoyed family, friends and the holiday.
We wouldn't hesitate to rent this home again, the next time we visit the DC area.
About the Host, Suzanne
From Seattle, WA now living in metro DC. With many productive years under my belt working with NPR, I now head up another creative non-profit organization - this one in the visual arts. I love to draw and paint but my passion is tennis, and finding and welcoming guests into this peaceful home, situated in the heart of Bethesda, is always a joy.
