About this listing
Reviews: “…the house is big, cute, cosy, cleaned and you have everything you need. They are always trying to help you and are so respectful..." "Though G&D were there, they were very unobtrusive and let us study in the TV room, fix our own meals..."
While working, studying, or visiting in Silver Spring/DC, your group can stay in our comfortable, well-maintained home instead of an impersonal hotel. There are also times when the house can be available without us being there. Two rooms have double beds. The other has a trundle bed that can be made up as a king, two twins or a single.

AIRP residents are very welcome! We have had several groups stay with us while attending the review course at AFI Theatre. 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.
What guests like: The house is convenient to AFI Silver and two metro stations to get to Washington DC and tourist attractions. We are walking distance to stores, restaurants and a lively entertainment district in downtown Silver Spring and the eclectic shops of Takoma Park and a beautiful jogging/biking trail along Sligo Creek nearby.
Guests have access to kitchen, laundry, TV/family room, living room, dining room, back deck and yard, fresh linens, parking passes and bikes.
Interaction with Guests
There are times when the entire home can be made available as a private homestay. When we are here we take our interaction cues from our guests. Some are more private than others and we respond accordingly. If we don't anticipate your needs please tell us during your stay. When we are home, guests usually have the kitchen to themselves in the morning and we try to schedule our evening meal after our guests.
This home is in an urban and eclectic neighborhood at the nexus of 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 film and more, many are within walking distance. We are also near a tranquil, woodsy park with a lovely hike/bike/jog trail along a creek.
We are one mile from 2 Metro stations and one-half block from a bus that will take you to both stations. The Takoma Station is in DC and cheaper if you're coming from that direction. Silver Spring is the first station in MD from DC and convenient to shops and restaurants. Also the neighborhood is very bike/walkable.
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.
No Smoking or candle burning.
Since these rooms are in our home we require a complete Airbnb profile before booking. Please be respectful of the quiet neighborhood.
PLEASE TELL US during your stay if anything is interfering with your comfort in any way.
