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).
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.
~ Enjoy WiFi inside the apartment or outside in the garden.
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!

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!
