Walkable to red line Silver Spring station and the grocery store is very close. My room is very private and right next to the bathroom so everything is very convenient. Alex and Danielle are very responsive and thoughtful. Model hosts and I totally recommend.

I stayed for a month for AIRP and it was great. Walking to AFI takes 10-15 minutes and buses go by every 5-10 minutes from 2 blocks away. The home was comfortable, spacious and had everything I needed. Quiet hours are respected. Hosts are approachable and easy to communicate with. Washer and Dryer were available and worked great. Wifi is fast. The metro station is 0.7 miles away and it's easy to find your way to the airports. Uber and Lyft are also readily available at all times.
