About Diana and Oscar Avant

I (Oscar) am a retired Engineering Manager. My wife (Diana) previously provided catering for private parties and large gatherings. I am presently a writer and we both counsel young couples in marriage relationships and christian growth.

We have hosted several families in our work to heal relationships.

Diana and Oscar Avant purchased this house in 1997

Why Diana and Oscar Avant chose Silver Spring

This property (as you will see) is uniquely situated in a pristine community. It is located within one quarter mile of the church we attend. This area has a lot of history, the homes have generous yard space and it is the best compromise if you must commute to Washington or Baltimore and want to enjoy the area..

What makes this house unique

I am in love with this home primarily because of its ideal location and the pristine views that it provides of the beautiful golf course. In your visit you may find other reasons to love it. We welcome your visit.

Everything we could have asked for in a wonderful wedding weekend. Excellent hosts. We recommend.

  • 4 of 5

This was everything we could have wanted for this weekend. My wife, my sons and their wives shared this cozy, yet spacious 3 bedroom apartment behind the owner's home. The hosts were very gracious, provided good guidance, but mostly left us free to enjoy the weekend without disturbance. We especially liked the stocked Keurig.

The ONLY Caution is that though there are two bathrooms there is only one shower, which is between two adjoining bedrooms. It was fine for us and our kids, but might be awkward for guests who aren't as intimate with each other. Recommended for families and close friends.

Very nice place and very accommodating, responsive, and friendly owners.

  • 3 of 5

The beds were very comfortable and the overall condition of the place was very good. I believe that the price is quite high though.

As beautiful as this home was, Diana and Oscar are even more so. I am the other adult that attended the inauguration. Everyday was hustle and bustle in DC., so it was nice to take the metroline back to a wonderful place away from all of that. Everything was sparkling clean and it felt like home. Very spacious, plenty of hot water, everything worked perfectly with nothing in need of repair. I can't stress enough how wonderful the owners were. I feel as if we have made new friends. My next trip to DC, they will be my first call because I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

DC Trip with kids - Beautiful experience!

  • 5 of 5

Traveled with 2 adults & 2 kids to visit DC for the inauguration. This was a true retreat from all the crowds and hustle / bustle of the city. The home is beautiful and sits in a quiet neighborhood on a golf course. The owners are wonderful loving people and made us feel so welcome.

I can't say enough about the quality of the the stay here. The accommodations were outstanding and provided for a restful retreat after long days and tired feet. The kids loved it! There was plenty of room for the kids to play and the adults to kick back and relax.

I travel a great deal and give this a high recommendation!! I will be back!

Spacious and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the home of Diane and Oscar. It was perfect for our four adults and two children. We had space to be away from each other and space to gather together. Diane had put beautiful touches of fall decor everywhere. Since we had lived in Rockville at one time, we had no problem getting around. Parking at the Glenmont metro was not a problem. There was a grocery store about a mile down the road. The setting was quiet and inviting after days touring the D.C. area. Everything was clean. There were plenty of towels and a washer and dryer if you needed it. I would definitely recommend to family and friends.

Great hosts, Nice Property

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this house. The owner was very helpful and nice to us. The home is clean and centrally located to where we needed to go. The community the home is settled in his quite and filled with similarly beautiful homes. However, you do not have the whole house. You are located in a separate downstairs basement of the house. The owner is the upstairs/main house area. You do have a separate entrance. Overall, great stay.
