I thought it was fine, the wife... not so much
First off, the location for this home is probably one of it's strongest points. It is right next to a bus stop which is a short ride to downtown Silver Spring where you can grab a Metro into downtown DC. It is also right off the 495, and about a 30 minute drive to most everything there is to do in the area. The home also has a lot of space, a little yard and all the amenities you could need. It is the owners old home that is rented out when they are away. They have a relative in the area that is a kind host while you are there. Downside, this is a normal home that is not occupied all the time and has developed some issues with that. There is a musky smell, that took us awhile to get used to. It bothered the wife so much she didn't even want to eat in there until we placed air fresheners throughout the house. Also, the place had lots of spiders we had to dispose of. There weren't really cobwebs around, as they did clean before we came. Nothing poisonous just daddy-long-legs and some other small harmless spiders. It is an old house and these are some things that come with old homes. It is also not well set-up to be an air bnb. It needs to be more minimalist with less breakables around for toddlers to possibly knock over. We took many things down and put them away as we were staying there to keep the kids from them.
Great Rental House
This house is conveniently located near the downtown Silver Spring area, which is easily accessible from the bus stop right outside the house. The screened-in porch is great for relaxing outside and the owners were easy to work with. It was a great rental house for my friend and I who were interning in Silver Spring over the summer.
