Studio Apartment In The Heart Of Bethesda With Easy Access To Washington, DC.
Welcoming and light-filled suite, on the bottom level of our home, with a lush garden entrance and small private yard. Only a 7 minutes walk to Bethesda metro which takes you downtown to Metro Center in 17 minutes. Easy access to Washington DC museums and monuments.
The south-facing ground-level backyard patio entrance is surrounded by flowers (in season) and mature trees. Inside, there is a living room with a large couch, an office area and reading nook, a kitchenette, a dining area, a very clean bathroom and a bedroom area with a new queen-sized bed.
100% of the electric power supply is generated from clean, emissions-free wind power, and products and supplies are chosen based on being environmentally friendly and fair trade.
Price is discounted because of heavy footsteps from our area of the house (mostly noticeable during college vacation days when my sons are home) and the walkway is being worked on so there is a section of walkway which is stepping stones through grass.

About Erika Wind
I love to travel and enjoy welcoming people from all over the world. I also love building things and I've been enjoying working on the remodeling for the rentals.
Erika Wind purchased this Studio in 1992
Why Erika Wind chose Chevy Chase
This is where I live and it is such a great location that it seems like a waste not to share it.
What makes this Studio unique
Absolutely the best neighborhood in the world! Friendly neighbors, very walkable, access to everything. Also, you can have as much privacy as you want.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Perfect accommodation and location in middle of Bethesda. Thank you.
We stayed one week and had everything we needed...two blocks from Metro for close access everywhere in DC area. Plus a parking spot for our car when we drove about. We slept well in the apartment and enjoyed the excellent restaurants and cafes within walking distance. We would definitely recommend this accommodation. Thank you, Ms. Wynd.
This is a great little apartment. A nice shape with everything you could want provided and a very accommodating host upstairs. Bed very comfortable, nice bathroom, cute kitchenette. A few more dishes would be nice and maybe a sharp knife. Nice to have games on hand and a Wii. The walkway to the entrance is a bit treacherous and awkward for bringing luggage. It looks as though she is working on improving it.
Such a lovely place to stay! The space has character and the neighborhood is beautiful and safe. Property is just blocks from the Metro and a grocery store (fold-up cart available!). Erika was extremely helpful and attentive. The bed is comfortable, which is so important since I have a bad back. I also loved the apartment uses sustainable energy. I have stayed in many vrbos, and I couldn't have been more pleased with this one. I look forward to staying here again next time. Highly recommended!
Nice and cozy efficiency. We enjoyed our stay and Erika is great to work with.
A big miss
I feel sad writing this review, as the owner of the property was a very pleasant and helpful person, but the property is not one that should be rented. It is a dingy basement. The furniture is out of the 80s and the place is not really clean. The so-called garden is fenced off and you're left with 2 sad lawn chairs sitting on concrete. There is no bedroom door. The kitchen is next to the bathroom. But the most difficult part was the almost constant clomping around from the upstairs. Bethesda is lovely and the property is near the Metro station with easy access to Washington.
Oh dear I am so sorry to have a disappointed guest. I have all five-star reviews (37 so far) on this site and through the other venues we use, so I had no idea that my place could be a miss. Compared with what is available at this location at hotels or at other homes, we offer a fantastic deal. I encourage all guests to please shop around before booking.
Of course, I take reviews very seriously, so I called vrbo support and was assured that the pictures and the description are accurate. For example, the vrbo representative said that "studio” would indicate there is no door to the bedroom. Nonetheless, I don’t want disappointed guests so I have edited the description to spell out that there are black-out curtains.
The pictures do show all the furnishings which (in my opinion) create a comfortable, quirky and fun style, but of course style is subjective. The patio chairs were quite a find and I drove very far to get them as they are distinctive and actually quite valuable.
The patio is Pennsylvania bluestone. The posted garden pictures all show what is on the guest side of the fence. If the shrubs and vines are not in bloom yet, I put out potted flowers. The fence separates my main yard from the guest private patio area, and anything beyond the fence, including my garden and the neighbor’s yards and trees, is meant to be part of the surrounding scenery.
We thoroughly clean of every inch of the studio, but of course I take the criticism to heart. So, I have replaced the sofa cover because it had some smudges from where I had used the wrong cleaning supplies on it. I have also repainted the aluminum in the shower because it had pitted and perhaps the guest thought that it was dirty. I certainly want to hear from guests immediately if they have any concerns about cleanliness, or anything else related to their stay.
The floors do make noises but we do our best to tiptoe at night and if anyone requests quiet during the day, we are happy to accommodate. I have stayed at many hotels where you hear conversations from the hall at all times of day and night, and certainly we don't have that here.
I do hope that everyone shops around before staying here so that they will appreciate exactly what we have to offer. My main focus as a host is on having happy guests and providing a personal, friendly, safe, convenient and beautiful place to stay in downtown Bethesda.
