The Space

You have use of the entire house
•Plenty of room for families
•Use of the kitchen
•Driveway parking
•Washer and Dryer
•Rides to and from Metro 1 mile away
•Ride from airports, bus or train station
•Restaurants nearby
•Cats and pool table to entertain kids

You can use 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms. They are on the second floor with a newly remodeled bathroom, with a tub and walk-in shower. There are 2 large bedrooms, both with queen size beds, and a small room with a full size bed. They all will sleep 2 each. I also have 3 queen and 3 twin air beds I can set up in the large rooms. The bedrooms all have Direct TV. One room has a DVD player and Roku for Netflix.

The well equipped, gourmet eat in kitchen has a duel-fuel stove with a grill. The table will seat up to 10 people. There is cereal, breakfast bars, snack food, sodas and juice for the guests.

I have a tankless water heater. That means you have unlimited hot water. If 12 people need to take a shower, you won't have to wait for the water to heat up again after 2 showers.

There is WIFI, and DSL for your laptop or wireless device. I have a printer you can use.

The library has lots of books, a pool table and foos ball table.

There is a gazebo in the backyard. It has lights and a ceiling fan. You can sit out there and relax or maybe have dinner.

If you have small kids, I have a car seat, high chair, Pack and Play, and a stroller.

There are lots of restaurants near by, some with bars, 7-11, and fast food places within walking distance. Near the Metro station there is a shopping center with a Target, grocery store, more restaurants, movie theaters and several churches.

If you arrive at National, Dulles or BWI Airports, Union Station by train or bus, I am usually available to give you a ride to and from the house. I am also usually available to give rides to and from the Metro station, (my van will hold up to 6 passengers). West Hyattsville and Prince Georges’ Plaza, both on the Green Line, are about 1 mile from the house. There is parking at both stations.

If you are driving, my driveway will hold up to 4 cars.

It is about a 20 minute Metro ride to the National Mall in Washington. It is a 20 minute drive to downtown DC. The house is also near the University of Maryland.

I don’t have unrelated groups stay at the house at the same time, so if you only use 1 bedroom, you will be the only guest. If you use 1 bedroom, 2 or 3, if you are 1 person or 12, the cost is $60 per night for the whole house.

I live in the house and stay in the fourth bedroom on the first floor and have 3 cats. Noah, Digby and Mabaline, the cats, are very people friendly. Don't be surprised when your kids ask all day, "When can we go back and play with Noah?"

If you have never done this, it may seem strange staying in someones house while they are there, but try it. I don't think you will ever go back to a conventional hotel. You get someone that knows the area and can help with all of your needs and all of the advantages of being in a house; kitchen, lots of space, wifi, Direct TV, and parking. Everyone says that the best part of staying at my house is the kittens. You can't get that in a hotel. And the price can't be beat.

  • We stayed there in a family of 9 for almost a week! Donna is an amazing person and really attentive, got everything prepared for us and also made the favor of picking up my grandparents that were tired after a long bus ride from NY as we still needed to rent cars and more things! I fell in love with the house immediately, everything is so beautiful and well cared, the kitchen is huge and full of snacks, the gazebo outside is outstanding and even the bathrooms are so lovely! The cats are cute and sometimes were there to "say good morning" if the door was open! I highly recommend for families, we had a great time! Actually not only for families, everyone will be pleased to be hosted by Donna. It's hard to believe that you can find such a nice place with an incredible and open-hearted host for that price. Like she said it's not all for the money and it's incredible to see the maps with pins all over the world indicating all the people she hosted, and also a table with photos and gifts from all of those different places. I'm glad that now you will find more things from Brazil and my city Curitiba there, glad to be part of that!

  • Great place. Great price. Great host.

    Experience so nice, almost worthy of being thought of as a "destination" rather than mere lodging.

  • This was our first vacation with airbnb and I would absolutely recommend Donna's house to everyone. She is very nice and helpful with informations about the area. We had great and interesting conversations and we just loved her house. It is very comfortable and cleanand decorated with loving care. She provides everything you might need or like, such as games, drinks, food.
    It is much nicer to make vacations this way than staying in hotels, especially for families.
    Thank you, Donna!!!

  • Donna's home was exactly as her listing stated-everything we needed and more! Walking in the neighborhood felt very safe and everyone we came across was friendly. Donna is an extremely helpful hostess going out of her way to help us with our plans, carting us around, and making sure we were where we needed be at the correct times. We would stay there again in a heartbeat!

  • Donna was a fantastic host. Nothing was too much trouble for her. The room was great and she provided everything we needed in the kitchen. She was very sensitive to guests needs for company or quiet. We had great conversations with her covering a wide range of topics including the invention of the light bulb (swan from Britain not edison of course!) kitchen was fabulous and really clean with every appliance imaginable. Donna was also great with suggestions for visits. All in all a great experience.

  • We stayed for an additional day with Donna. Staying with Donna is like staying with family!

  • This was my family's first airbnb.com experience and it was so much more than we expected. Donna is quick to communicate, her home is very clean, spacious and inviting. We had plenty of private space as well as the freedom of making ourselves at home in her home. This was a family of 7 vacation to DC. It's a quick drive into the city or an even quicker metro ride. She's very knowledgeable about the area and happy to give advise or directions to destinations. She is fascinating to talk to about all of her adventures and the many people she has met by hosting. We also enjoyed her neighborhood. Within walking distance is a very new, hip, urban outdoor area with some local and chain restaurants and neat shopping. I felt very safe the entire time. My children are 7 and 8. They were excited about the cats and my son really enjoyed the foosball table. The beds were comfortable and the bedrooms had plenty of space for our luggage and personal items. The bathroom shower was amazing and now we have to install a shower head like hers in our home because we liked it so much! You won't find a nicer lady, bigger house and more comfortable surroundings than at Donna's house. We hope to visit again next year!

  • We just finished our stay at Donna's house. It was beyond our expectations. Donna's home had plenty of room, things to do, and amenities for us and our 7 children ages 17-1. Donna was a wonderful host. She was friendly and very helpful with everything from cards for the metro to snacks available in the evening. Her home is very comfortable and clean. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone considering it.

    June 2014
  • Donna's house is absolutely amazing! The kitchen is stocked with all kinds of snacks. The room is quite clean and really spacious. The bed is comfortable. The restaurants in the neighborhood are good too. We enjoyed the night spent with Donna. Next time I travel to DC area I will check Donna's calendar first! 

    June 2014
  • The stay at Donna's was again great. We have stayed here before and made a point to return. Her home is wonderful with everuthing you could need. We spent most of our time at our daughters graduation and it was nice to stay at a home rather than a hotel.

About
I am 59 and a retired cable splicer from the phone company. I like to read, sew and really like to cook. I have 3 cats that keep the place lively. I hope to make new friends and learn new things by having people stay in my home.Hosting people from all over the country and the world has been the experience of a lifetime. I have found that everyone has a story and they are all interesting. My life has been greatly enriched by the people I have met. The stories I hear about peoples lives and history, have given me a look into the world I couldn't have gotten any other way. I look forward to each new guest and the adventure they will bring.
