John and Liz were wonderful hosts. My teenagers and I appreciated having our own spaces to relax and sleep. The location is lovely and very quiet. Communication was awesome as was our warm greeting upon arrival. We will definitely look for availability here for our next trip to Takoma Park. The added bonus was being steps away from Sligo Creek Parkway and walking trails as well as being close to downtown Takoma Park. Overall a great experience!

I can't recommend this listing enough. Thoughtful, friendly, interesting hosts and a perfectly appointed (and comfortable) living space. We'll be back for certain.

John was a great host! His place is close to the metro and was convenient for us to travel to D.C. Everything was very clean, and he made us feel at home.

John User ProfileJohn is a superhost.

My wife, son and I moved six years ago from Park Slope, Brooklyn to DC for work/graduate school. After living in the District for a few years we decided to buy a house in neighboring Takoma Park, MD. My wife is a professor at the University of Maryland and I am a writer. We are animal lovers and have recently adopted a puppy named Nola.
