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.
PLEASE TELL US if anything is interfering with your comfort level in any way.
C'était déjà très bien la première fois. Le deuxième séjour était mieux encore. Et ce n'est pas fini ! Excellent. Je recommande fortement.
Accueil chaleureux et discret. On s'y sent fort bien. Pour moi, d'ailleurs, ce séjour a été une excellente initiation à Airbnb.
Gail and Danny were very welcoming and gracious hosts. They were accommodating and kind, and always interested in making my stay a good one. Their home was quiet and clean.
We must say, it was a great pleasure to stay at the residence of Gail and Danny. This was our first Airbnb experience and we are happy that it turned out to be with Gail and Danny. They have definitely set the bar high!
The house is conveniently located from Metro stations, with ample restaurants within 10 minute walk. Right from the moment of reservation to the day we checked out, Gail kept a tab on our visit and helped us have a great stay.
It's sad that we never got to meet them, though they let us use their place! Thanks Gail and Danny!

Very nice place, and very pleasant hosts. I would definitely recommend that place and particularly to AIRP students.
Great hosts, great room, great neighborhood. Couldn't have asked for a nicer stay.
This was my first experience with airbnb service and first trip to Maryland. It was short stay but it was great. Both Gail and Danny are very friendly and of helping nature. They came to pick me up and later drop me off at the metro station. They also gave me the quick tour of the city and showed where my conference, for which I was there, was taking place. The room was nice and clean and neighborhood was good too. In fact, I was invited over to a musical/gathering program happening in the neighborhood. I was warmly welcomed there too. The place is not far from downtown. A 15 min. walk will take you to the silver spring downtown. I enjoyed my stay there and would choose this place again if I ever happen to be in the city.

We have several listings that include private guest rooms in our home as well as a fully furnished guest home next door. Our location is at the nexxus of DC/Silver Spring/Takoma Park and walking distance to the Silver Spring and Takoma metro stations and the downtown Silver Spring commercial district. This includes the AFI Theatre where the AIRP class is held. Many of our guests are radiologists who are here to attend that class. Of course, we accept other travelers as well and have had guests from all over the world.
The profile and review feature on Airbnb has allowed us to comfortably accept strangers into our home who soon become acquaintances and even friends. PLEASE give us the courtesy of sharing profile information about yourself AND any adults traveling with you before booking. You will find in general that you will have more success on Airbnb with a complete and verified profile.
We have lived in the DC Metro area for 30 years and enjoy all it has to offer. We raised our adult children in this home. Two of the rooms we offer still display their youthful touches. We are avid travelers ourselves and have been Airbnb guests, so we feel we know what makes a good host--accommodation and flexibility without intrusion. Feel free to ask us for recommendations or anything to make your stay more comfortable.
