Welcoming and light-filled suite, on the bottom level of our home, with a lush garden entrance and small private yard. Only a 7 minutes walk to Bethesda metro which takes you downtown to Metro Center in 17 minutes. Easy access to Washington DC museums and monuments.
The south-facing ground-level backyard patio entrance is surrounded by flowers and mature trees. Inside, there is a living room with a large couch, an office area and reading nook, a kitchenette, a dining area, a very clean bathroom and a bedroom area with a new queen-sized bed.
100% of the electric power supply is generated from clean, emissions-free wind power, and products and supplies are chosen based on being environmentally friendly and fair trade.
Price is discounted because of heavy footsteps from our area of the house (mostly noticeable during college vacation days when my sons are home) and the walkway is being worked on so there is a section of walkway which is stepping stones through grass.
I love to travel and enjoy welcoming people from all over the world. I also love building things and I've been enjoying working on the remodeling for the rentals.
Erika Wind purchased this studio in 1992
This is where I live and it is such a great location that it seems like a waste not to share it.
Absolutely the best neighborhood in the world! Friendly neighbors, very walkable, access to everything. Also, you can have as much privacy as you want.
This is a great little apartment. A nice shape with everything you could want provided and a very accommodating host upstairs. Bed very comfortable, nice bathroom, cute kitchenette. A few more dishes would be nice and maybe a sharp knife. Nice to have games on hand and a Wii. The walkway to the entrance is a bit treacherous and awkward for bringing luggage. It looks as though she is working on improving it.
Such a lovely place to stay! The space has character and the neighborhood is beautiful and safe. Property is just blocks from the Metro and a grocery store (fold-up cart available!). Erika was extremely helpful and attentive. The bed is comfortable, which is so important since I have a bad back. I also loved the apartment uses sustainable energy. I have stayed in many vrbos, and I couldn't have been more pleased with this one. I look forward to staying here again next time. Highly recommended!
Nice and cozy efficiency. We enjoyed our stay and Erika is great to work with.
private, comfortable, cozy and very accessible. short walk to metro and downtown Bethesda.
Wonderful and attentive owner; helpful at all times.
will definitely go back to stay when I return to the Washington DC area. coffee, tea etc. were provided for daily use (a very nice touch) .
Our time in Erika's house was great, the place is independent, well located and filled with details that makes your stay easier. We had some snow when we were there and had to stay a couple of days at home with a couple toddlers and we had many things to do: videogames, boardgames, lot of solutions for cooking...
Erika was also a very nice host and very helpful, even when we had my mother arriving to the city before we expected and had to accommodate her in the room with us.
I feel sad writing this review, as the owner of the property was a very pleasant and helpful person, but the property is not one that should be rented. It is a dingy basement. The furniture is out of the 80s and the place is not really clean. The so-called garden is fenced off and you're left with 2 sad lawn chairs sitting on concrete. There is no bedroom door. The kitchen is next to the bathroom. But the most difficult part was the almost constant clomping around from the upstairs. Bethesda is lovely and the property is near the Metro station with easy access to Washington.
Walk to great restaurants and shopping as well as NIH and the Walter Reed medical center. Walkscore website rates this spot as a 'walker's paradise' with 'excellent transit.'
