What a cute neighborhood. The hosts made their house a home for their guests. The apt is even better than it looks in the photos. The kitchen is very well equipped...nothing missing. It was a pleasure to stay in and so convenient. Walk to the corner, hop on the bus and a quick ride to the Metro station has you in DC very quickly, even in the heart of rush hour. Would highly recommend this place to friends and we love to return some day. Thank you Diana and Steven, and Airbnb. Ellen, Edgartown,MA
The apartment was clean and well maintained. We thought it was great!
We met up with my son who is living in DC now, and this was a perfect place for us to spend family time together. We went into DC daily and spent evenings making simple dinners and playing board games in the apartment.
The walk to the Metro seemed long in the unexpectedly cold weather, so we mostly rode the bus to the Metro. Bus stop on the corner at the end of the street was quick and convenient. Good pizza place there too! The apartment was warm and cozy.
This was our second stay with Steve and Diana and once again we were not disappointed. The apartment is spacious, homey, attractive, comfortable, clean, welcoming and well-equipped. Laundry facilities on site, easy parking, ample towels (and toiletries!) were all pluses. We had just one glitch getting warm blankets in a timely way. Checkin and checkout are particularly easy and we welcomed the flexibility in that regard. Many thanks again!
The listing description was accurate. Hosts provided luxury bathroom products. The kitchen was well stocked. The apartment was comfortable and cozy. Perfect for our visit.
We had a very comfortable 3 nights in this apartment. Beds were comfy, kitchen worked for our needs, and the boys loved the movies on the TV!! The apartment is warm , cozy, and clean. The cupcakes were a treat and the notebook very helpful for things to do, restaurants, how to use the Metro, and what to do upon checkout. This was a first time experience with AirBNB and I will certainly do this again. This apartment lived up to its write-up.
We had a wonderful time during our stay in the 2-bedroom apartment. Accommodations were spacious and very comfortable. Steven and Diana seemed to have thought of everything including helpful tips to get around town. We will definitely try to stay here in the future!
We have been married for 14 years, have lived in Takoma Park for 6 years and love this city! Along with our 4 children and two dogs, we have enjoyed the hometown parade on the 4th of July, the Halloween festival,the folk festival and all the DC/Baltimore area has to offer.
