For your private use, we offer a cozy, well-lighted one bedroom apartment with a sweet little dining area and a half bath, which includes a restroom with a sink. The apartment is attached to the back of our house and you will have access to our kitchen, laundry room, and the upstairs bathtub and shower. You have your own private entrance. We are open to suggestions and hope you enjoy your stay!

The space

Your rooms have a private entrance and a view into the spacious backyard. The space can comfortably fit two people. In a pinch, we could throw a mat on the floor and fit in a child or young adult.

Guest access

Guests have access to the kitchen, the full bathroom upstairs, the laundry room, and the trampoline.

Interaction with guests

As you wish, we enjoy visiting with guests when we are home and available.

You would have a private entrance to your two back rooms and half bath, so you could choose to come and go as you wish. You could stay without any interaction with our family (except, perhaps, when you pass through the house to use the shower upstairs or use the shared kitchen), or you are welcome to engage with us if we are around and available. We recently hosted a long-term guest on a medical residency whom we rarely saw because he often showered and left before 6 am and arrived home after 6 pm after eating dinner out. On the other hand, we hosted a couple who made a point of engaging with us. We are comfortable with both.

Other things to note

Note you may hear young footsteps before their (fingers crossed) 8:30 bedtime. Our three kids include: Levi, 10; Sophia, 12; and Riley, 15. We also have a small friendly dog, Sky (4 years old), and 2 cats, Bubba and Squarez.

My cat and I spent the summer here while I had a 10-week internship, and everything was great! Laura, Jamie, and their kids are all wonderful people, and they always made sure that I had everything I needed. It was such a joy to get to know them over the summer. Also, their pets are super adorable and friendly. :) The location of the property is perfect, as it is quite close to downtown Takoma Park and the metro station. The best part is that the 16 bus picks up right in front of the house, which takes you right to the metro. Takoma Park itself is a true gem, with lots of restaurants, shops, and an amazing farmer's market every Sunday. I can't recommend this place enough! Definitely stay here if you can.

We had a great stay at Laura's. Everything we needed for our tourist holiday to Washington with a 3 year old. Only negative is that we spent a lot of time with the two adorable cats and now my husband and daughter want one.

This was my 3rd time to staying in an Air BnB home...that also had the family in residence. Laura and her family were simply amazing. I felt super welcome and I would definitely love to be a guest in their home again.

Laura and her family were extremely friendly as well as communicative! They respond quickly both in messages and on the phone. It is a great space with a bedroom as well as dresser and closet, and multiple mirrrors which we appreciated while getting ready to go out to a concert! In the additional private room there are even more amenities than currently listed, including a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker! :) The only thing to consider in hot months (especially as some May days have been unusually hot) is there is only an AC window unit (currently). Overall we enjoyed our stay- quiet space, ample parking, a lovely area, as well as the co-op and restaurants nearby, interactions if you choose, and cute cats! Haha. I would definitely recommend Laura's place.

Laura's cozy home was everything I needed for the night. We arrived late and Laura said it was ok. She made the necessary arrangement for the keys. The room is very cozy. It's just as described and the bed was extremely comfortable. I will definitely come back my next time in D.C. Thank you for the hospitality Laura.
