The space

The perfect home centrally located to all Bethesda has to offer. It's a short walk to the Metro with Redline direct to DC, and stroll into Bethesda with shops, restaurants, libraries, theaters (music, children and movies), groceries, schools, farmer's markets, and more! Walter Reed and NIH are within walking distance for great exercise. Situated in a quiet residential neighborhood, this charming brick colonial is less than a block from a family park with awesome playground and 2 blocks to a walk/bike trail -- great for morning walks or for that 30-minute bicycle ride to DC's Georgetown waterfront.

The home is pleasantly furnished and has a wood-burning fireplace, serene screen porch with wicker furniture, fully equipped kitchen with dishes, utensils, pots & pans, coffee maker, rice cooker, microwave, toaster, blender, and more. Dining table seats up to 6 adults. Sleeping quarters include 3 bedrooms upstairs -- one with a queen bed, another with two twin bunk beds, and the third currently functions as an office, or can be set up with a crib. A double futon is situated in the lower-level family room along with a second full bathroom with shower. The house will accommodate 4 adults, 2 children in the twin beds, and an infant.

Towels and bed linens provided. Hardwood floors throughout. Off-street parking, yard, full-size washer/dryer, central air conditioning, ceiling fans, gas heat, smoke detectors, local TV and FiOS high-speed wireless internet.

This is a lovely home in a quiet residential setting. Your private retreat yet close to everything. It's perfect for visiting DC sights, visiting family and friends, transitioning to DC, on sabbatical, remodeling a home nearby, or on a work project from across the country or world. This has been a comfortable home for families with young children and adults. Everyone loves the neighborhood and finds it easy to get around - walking, bicycling or driving. Everyone says the house "has a great feel."

A charming, welcoming home-away-from-home with all the conveniences of home in a beautiful residential setting close to downtown Bethesda. Well appointed for anyone - couples, families, groups of friends, etc. Would like to stay here again when visiting the D.C. area. Thanks to Suzanne for being a caring and gracious host.

The place is nice and just as pictured. We stayed for the One Fire Festival which was held at Hot Yoga, Pure Om Bethesda. It was great because it was only a 10 minute walk. Starbucks and many other restaurants and businesses are within walking distance. We enjoyed our stay!

This place was the best. It was very convenient to many locations but specifically was a great location for visiting the NIH campus where I was working for the week. The neighborhood is nice and quiet but still close the the main streets. The house was very clean and Suzanne, the host, was just a call or text away. We had a winter storm with several inches of snow and Suzanne made time to check that we had everything we needed to ride out the weather. Great experience and great host.

Great stay in Bethesda. Residential neighborhood, but can walk to metro, restaurants, and/or shops. Good for family. Well equipped kitchen, and comfortable space.

We had a great time in Suzanne's house. The house is perfect for a family with kids, near parks, trail roads that takes you to the center of Bethesda, and near the metro (15 minutes walk). Thanks!

We stayed here for a month and were quite pleased with it. The house was comfortable, clean, and very well-stocked (even with things like aluminum foil, condiments, pens, and other stuff that you need at home on a day-to-day basis). It felt like a house that someone actually lived in, rather than a rental. Suzanne lives next door and is friendly and very responsive. We really enjoyed the screened sun porch. There is a beautiful large park with a playground a half block away, and a high school running track a block away as well as close access to the Capitol Crescent Trail. It's a very safe and quiet neighborhood. The only drawback I can think of is that it's a bit of a walk to downtown Bethesda and the metro - maybe took us 15 or 20 minutes with a 5 year old. Would absolutely stay here again!

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.

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.
