The Space

While visiting, working or studying in DC, your group can stay in our modern, well-maintained home in downtown Silver Spring instead of an impersonal hotel. We are empty-nesters and these extra rooms are rarely used. Two rooms have full size beds and the other has a trundle bed with two twins that can also be made up as a king. All rooms have desks as well as closet and drawer space. Two rooms are upstairs with a full bath to share. One room is downstairs near the main level bath.

Guest Access

Guests have access to kitchen, laundry, TV/family room, living room, dining room, back deck and yard, fresh linens, parking passes and bikes.

AIRP residents are very welcome! We have had several groups stay with us while attending the class 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.

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.

The Neighborhood

Our home is in an urban and eclectic neighborhood near the Washington DC border with Maryland. 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.

Getting around

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.

  • They are very friendly and well-equipped for breakfast. They have a nice house and their bedrooms are awesome. The location is quite far from the public transportation but not as much a problem. The wooded floor sometimes make noise, but it also make the house look lively and warm.

  • Convenient place for AIRP, within walking distance to theater and downtown Silver Spring. Gail and Danny were really hospitable and accommodating!

We hope you have read our listing descriptions in full and a few reviews and have found them helpful. Many of your questions should be addressed in our descriptions. If not, please ask. We have several listings that include private rooms in our home as well as a fully furnished rental home next door. Our location is walking distance to the Silver Spring metro and the downtown 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.
