A complete sweet suite for my five day stay

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay here as a home away from home while I attended a professional course in downtown Silver Spring. It only took me about 10-15 minutes to drive downtown and park, which was very convenient. I liked coming home to Leo the outdoor cat greeting me on the front walkway. The hosts have friendly, beautiful dogs too that were upstairs and well behaved.

The place was spotless, and has a very nice yard. Even though this is a lowest level apartment, the screen door and window bring in fresh air and light.

I am sorry I didn't get a chance to enjoy the hot tub.

I found the decor very pleasing, and the bed was comfortable for me.

The kitchen is well-equipped and had everything I needed to make some meals.

Anna the host had placed fresh herbs around the apartment and a large chocolate bar too! She paid attention to my needs and was very outgoing and friendly.

Wi-Fi and a large computer is provided, but no television, which did not matter to me as I do not watch television.

I would recommend staying here and will probably return myself in February for my next training course!

Great Location, Very Ecomonical, and close to where I needed to be

  • 5 of 5

Economical and great location north of Silver Springs. I needed to work in Kensington ~1 mile away and my spouse needed access to the Metro (4-5 blocks away - Wheaton Station on the Red Line). Realize that this is a nicely converted basement apartment with enough room for two to relax. Nice claw-foot tub w/shower, kitchen has a one burner hot plate, hot water/coffee boiler, microwave, toaster oven, and a small fridge. Whole Foods nearby in Silver Springs. Did not get to enjoy outside as temps were >34F and long hours at the office, besides not much grows in winter in Maryland. Wonderful Hosts!

Hidden gem

  • 4 of 5

A very clean and comfortable studio basement apartment complete with everything I needed for the month. I was in DC attending a medical education function and this provided exactly what I needed. It was within walking distance to the metro stop, grocery store, and the neighborhood was beautiful. My private entrance was nice since I was in and out at all hours due to lectures and after hours social engagements. Michael and Anna were more than accommodating and very thoughtful. Even though I was only there for a month, they treated me like one of the family right away. I would definitely stop by just to visit if I was in the area again. I would also no hesitate to rent again if I needed a place to stay in the DC/Silver Spring area.

Convienent Basement Apartment

  • 4 of 5

This is a comfortable basement apartment. Everything was as described in the listing. Michael and Anna were easy to work with. Unfortunately we had to leave 2 days early due to illness in my family, but the owners were very kind and gracious. They did call 2 days before our arrival and let us know they have 2 puppies which were not at all a problem, but if you are looking to sleep in, note that being a basement apartment, when the owners get up in the morning, there are foot step noises from the home above. It was not a problem for us, as we were getting up about 6 every morning ourselves. It is a 10 minute walk to the Metro and then about a 25 minute ride to DC for the usual tourist attractions. Also note, that there is no television in the apartment. Usually we don't watch much TV, but since we were traveling from Florida, we were anxious to see what was happening with Hurricane Matthew There is a computer and we were able to get information there.

Spacious Basement Apartment

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at this charming basement apartment. It was a great place to stay during a trip to the Washington DC. The hosts, Michael and Anna were welcoming, nice and thoughtful. The room had plenty of space and the kitchen had enough to make some meals (though we only used it for breakfast). Located within walking distance from shopping, groceries and the metro. The Metro was a great way to experience the city and had a friendly staff to assist us to our destinations. We used it to access down town Silver Spring where we enjoyed its restaurant and went to a farmers market. Also, we used it to travel into DC to do some sightseeing. The whole process was very convenient and it was nice to not have to worry about parking!

One of our favorite stops on the trip was to The National Museum of Health and Medicine located in Silver Springs. The Free museum was off the beaten path and full of fascinating medical advancements and oddities. Well worth a look and only a short trip drive from the house.

There were two dogs that were very well behaved and made occasional but minimal noise.
