Located eight miles from the heart of Washington DC, it's easy to navigate the metro area by car or public transportation from our Takoma Park home, which is bordered by DC and Silver Spring, MD.
You'll be near the National Mall and all major DC landmarks, The National Archives at College Park; University of Maryland; American Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP); Food and Drug Administration (FDA); and NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.
You'll appreciate our lovely tree-lined street and quiet neighborhood. Restaurants, grocery stores, shops, parks, a public library with a bike share rack, hiking/biking paths and a community center are all within walking distance.
When you want to sample some of the area's exciting night life, downtown Silver Spring, MD, and the DC neighborhoods of Adams Morgan, Dupont Circle and the U Street Corridor are nearby.
We have on-street parking, and we're one block to bus lines, which provide a 10-minute ride to the Takoma Metro Station on the Red Line, which serves Union Station thus providing connections to Amtrak and MARC Trains. We're just a few minutes’ drive from the 495-Beltway and I-95N exits.
For those who are arriving via air, we are about a 45-minute drive from Dulles in Virginia and BWI in Maryland. We are about 30-minutes by car from Reagan National Airport. Travelers flying into Reagan may also take the metro to the Takoma Metro Station. Transportation from the metro station is negotiable.
Whether your stay is for a weekend, a few weeks or several months, our Blue Room will provide very comfortable accommodations with a queen-sized bed, chest, wing chair and spacious closet. A desk, chair and WiFi are included.
The kitchen, living room, dining room, and laundry room provide ample communal space for our guests. The bathroom is shared.
Общение с гостями
The layout of our home provides plenty of privacy for all residents. The first floor is maintained for our guests, and we have a large den on the lower level for our personal use. We're happy to be a resource for our guests whenever needed. With everyone's busy schedules, it's possible for days to pass without seeing one another. But we're always available by text, email or phone.
Guests must smoke outside, keep communal areas free from personal items, and clean up after themselves. Considerate guests are appreciated; quiet is required between 11pm and 6am.
Если вы отменяете бронирование за 5 дней до поездки или раньше, то мы вернем всю сумму бронирования. Если вы отменяете бронирование меньше чем за 5 дней до поездки, то мы вернем 50% стоимости всех ночей бронирования, кроме первой. Стоимость первой ночи не возращается.
Joining many others who are sharing their extra resources, we decided to offer our guest room as a furnished rental and to organize the first-floor as communal space. Our house provides ample privacy for all residents, and it's conveniently located. So we combined our many years of experience with various modes of housing advocacy and communal living and launched our project in 2013.
Thanks to Airbnb's online service, sharing our extra space is easy. Airbnb is a tremendous resource for connecting us with great guests who need short-term housing in the Washington DC metro area. We especially like the security the site offers with verified IDs, reviews, and references. Our guests can expect simple home hospitality, an organized, clean space, and a comfortable retreat after a busy day.
We often work from home. I am an author and college professor, my partner a consultant with a background in journalism/PR. We've both traveled and lived internationally. We like books, movies, music, gardening, and cooking. We've discovered that meeting new people and helping visitors get oriented in the area is a fun way to accomplish practical goals and demonstrate our community values.
