Linda is a delightful host. She went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and that we didn't need anything.
The neighborhood is lovely and close to the metro.
We would recommend Linda's house to anyone visiting the area.
Linda made us feel very welcomed. She was very friendly and flexible with the check-in time. If you are planning a day trip into the District then this may work out for you. The house is a good stroll through the mall parking lot to the Wheaton Metro stop.
Would we return? Absolutely! Our visit (over Thanksgiving) to be with family was not a typical "vacation". And Linda was visiting her parents so we didn't meet her until just before we left. But, we were welcomed by her friend, given a key and shown around. Our room was on the 2nd floor and what I loved best was lying in bed and looking up into a tree. That and Bambino, the sweetest kitty ever. We met Linda and wished that we didn't have to leave. We talked about cats, gardening, her neighborhood, and the nearest metro stop to DC. Linda is friendly and warm and I wish we had stayed longer. This was my first airbnb and a great experience.
Linda was extremely considerate and welcoming. My plans were uncertain and she was very accommodating, allowing me flexibility, which I greatly appreciated.
A top-notch airbnb experience staying with Linda, a gracious host who went out of her way to make us comfortable. The room was cozy, the house a warm and pleasant place to spend between-time, and the neighborhood quiet and well-located (my eight-year-old and I especially appreciated the park and playground just one house over). The cats were polite (i.e., undemanding) and clean. We had some great conversations with Linda about a wide range of topics and wished we could have spent more time getting to know her and her S.O. Highly recommended!
Linda was a great host, we carried very interesting conversations throughout my stay. I enjoyed Linda's company and would love to catch up again some time!
I enjoyed my stay at Linda's house, in a lovely quiet suburb of Washington. She made me feel at home, and the cats too! I could enjoy the sun on the terrace at the back and reIax. The strong futton bed was good for my back. I had no trouble walking to the metro everyday, and access downtown area except during the WE due to some delays in metro system.
I recommend warmly Linda's for anyone looking for a quiet place.
I enjoyed my stay with Linda, and even extended it while I was there. She is very friendly, the house is just like the pictures, and tidy. The cats are friendly as well. I should add the amazing soup she cooked and shared as well. Oh and the morning coffee was excellent :)
Great experience at Linda's place in Kensington! I had emailed about a handful of airbnb rooms/apartments around 2:00 am and we need the room the next night. Linda responded to me very quickly and we were able to book the room via emails while driving down from NYC (oh, smart phones!). She was very friendly and welcoming and gave us pointers regarding Kensington, Chesapeake Bay area and DC. The room was comfortable and clean with a bohemian feel to it. We had all the ammenities necessary, and were even able to do laundry!
The house was located about 10-15 minutes (walking) from a metro stop which gets you to DC in 30 minutes. It is on a quiet and quaint street that has bunnies hopping around the neighbors' front lawns. Kensington is so green and in a great location to explore both DC, Baltimore and Chesapeake Bay. I would definitely stay at Linda's again and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in the area. Plus, her kitties were adorable :)
I didn't get the chance to stay at Linda's since I had a last-minute schedule change. What I DID appreciate was her willingness to accomodate my last-minute request, a slightly early check-in which would have allowed me the opportunity to nap & shower between a sound-check and a performance at Strathmore. So, to anyone out there who will be performing or attending a performance at Strathmore, her place is very close by and much more affordable than the hotels!
Linda and her husband were only here for one short night driving through Utah but they were a pleasure to have. They even played with our dog late at night because he needed to get out some energy. Great guests!
Linda and her partner were wonderful guests. We enjoyed the morning visiting before they hit the road to tour the area on their way to Idaho. Would love to have them return.
Gillian and her friend's time here was short and sweet. From the moment they arrived until the moment they left, they were interesting, friendly, and very respectful. Would recommend them highly!!!
Hey Linda!!! It was very nice to meet you.
An amazing guest and person. She and Lisa are a lot of fun and really wonderful and respectful. It was a pleasure to host them!
