Lovely, quiet, private apartment in lower level of a bungalow home. Perfect for working, studying, visiting, or touring DC's historic & cultural sites. Blocks to downtown Silver Spring/AFI/AIRP; one mile to Silver Spring or Takoma Park Metro Stations (Red Line).

The space

Perfect for one or two guests, this spacious (450 square feet) studio apartment is bright, cozy and quiet. (One guest only, please, for stays of 7 nights or more.)

~ Large living & sleeping area: firm queen size bed, big comfy sofa, new HDMI, Smart TV with cable, Netflix, etc.
~ Enjoy quality bed and bath linens.
~ Kitchenette equipped for preparation of simple meals. Full-size refrigerator, convection/microwave oven, induction burner & cookware, mini-dishwasher.

Guest access

Enter through the garden gates at the end of my driveway. I'll program the back door lock with your personal 4 digit code (no keys!). We'll share the stairwell: your space is a half flight down, mine is a half flight up. (Motion-sensor lights along the driveway make late arrivals a breeze!)

Enjoy full access to the patio garden. Feel free to barbecue, paint, draw, work, read, while enjoying the birds and fire flies. I'll pull out the copper fire bowl once the weather turns crisp.

Interaction with guests

My hosting style is casual. I am happy to welcome guests and to offer suggestions about places to see and ways of getting to them. Depending on the season, I am regularly in the garden. Otherwise, we may not see much of each other. I am easily reached by phone, email or by text. I hope you will let me know what I can do to make your stay awesome!

~ Hair dryer, iron & ironing board provided.
~ Two young cats live with me upstairs. They don't spend time in the apartment.
~ Sometimes I'll need to pass through the apartment to access storage and utilities. I will make every effort to do so when you are not home.

For Long-Term Guests:
~ Bed and bath linens laundered regularly.
~ For personal laundry, Tropicana Laundromat, a modern, clean 24-hour facility that is a block & a half away, offers “wash and fold” service.

If you are traveling to Silver Springs and want a quiet place to relax in the evenings or even work this is a good one. Close to tons of restaurants and shopping. There is no need to rent a car if you're staying in the area.

I stayed at Suzy's place for a month, for AIRP. It is the perfect location- about a 15 minute walk to the AFI Silver Theater, 10 minutes to Safeway, and about 15 minutes to downtown Silver Spring. The Metro is an easy walk as well. Everything about the studio was perfect- spotlessly clean, quiet, soft sheets and nice towels, a comfortable bed and well equipped for anything you might need. The back yard is a quiet oasis to study or simply enjoy the lush garden. I would highly recommend staying here for anyone going to AIRP, or simply visiting the Silver Springs area. Suzy is responsive and helpful but respects your privacy as well. The neighborhood is safe and cute. Thanks, Suzy, for providing such a great home away from home!

I spent 4 weeks in this very nice appartment in August, attending the AIRP course. It is very cozy and clean, and I felt immediately at home. The garden is so relaxing! Suzy is an amazing host, very welcoming and sharing. For people attending the AIRP: it is a 15-20 minute walk, perfect for waking up in the morning. Grocery stores are within walking distance. I would definately come here again!

Suzy was very friendly and responsive both before and during our stay. Her apartment is a really nice and homey place, including the pretty patio garden, in a comfortable and convenient neighborhood. My husband and I were so glad we chose Suzy's home instead of a hotel!

Suzy is the perfect hostess! She provided all the necessary information with the utmost care and respect for our privacy. We truly loved spending time in Washington DC because Suzy encouraged us to try the public transportation and venture out. Our stay was perfect in every way!

Hosting through Airbnb is truly a pleasure for me. Whether you are traveling for work or study, visiting old college roommates or new grandchildren, exploring these environs in depth or on a grand tour -- I look forward to offering you a cozy and peaceful place to recharge at the end of the day.

A native-Washingtonian, I take great pride in the wealth of our region's resources. I've lived and worked in many areas of town and know of a few off-the-beaten-track places of interest. I’ll be very happy if I can recommend one that appeals to you!
