AIRP residents are very welcome! We have had several groups stay with us while attending the class at AFI Theatre. Read the reviews. They appreciate the close proximity to class and the quiet comfort we offer for studying, preparing meals and relaxing. We appreciate the US and international acquaintances we've made as their hosts.
Interaction with Guests
We take our interaction cues from our guests. Some are more private than others and we respond accordingly. We are not early birds so our guests can have the kitchen to themselves in the morning and the self-serve breakfast items we offer. The kitchen can be made available as needed for evening meals. I enjoy baking and sharing the results with our guests.
Our Spring-Park home is in an urban and eclectic neighborhood at the nexus DC, Silver Spring and Takoma Park. Two Redline Metro stations are one-mile away--Takoma & Silver Spring. Our community is family oriented and quiet but with all the urban resources you need to easily shop, dine-out, see a movie and more, all within walking distance. We are also walking distance to a tranquil, woodsy park with a lovely hike/bike/jog trail along a creek.
We are a mile from 2 Metro stations and one-half block from a bus stop. While you can get by easily without a car we also offer free parking so you can enjoy transit or driving. Also the neighborhood is very bike/walkable. You will find this a convenient location from which to see the sites, work or study.
Other Things to Note
We have 2 cats, so if you are allergic, this is not the place for you. If you are traveling with a pet, your request will be thoughtfully considered and if accepted, please add an additional guest to your booking.
Since these rooms are in our home we require a complete Airbnb profile with official ID submitted and identifiable photo posted. Especially if travelers do not have any prior Airbnb reviews.
After booking, guests will receive house guidelines and rules. After reading it in full we will answer any questions or concerns.
PLEASE TELL US if anything is interfering with your comfort level in any way.

You or your group can choose from individual or a combination of 3 private guest rooms in our B&B home or a separate fully furnished 3-bdrm guest house next door. Our location is at the nexus of DC/Silver Spring/Takoma Park--one-mile to the Silver Spring and Takoma metro stations and the downtown Silver Spring commercial district.
We have lived in the DC Metro area for over 30 years. We raised our adult children in this home and two of the rooms we offer still display their touches. We are avid travelers and have been Airbnb guests, so we feel we know what makes a good host--accommodation and flexibility without intrusion.
