Beautiful private room with porch in the wooded suburb
What a lovely experience it was to stay in Maria and Andrew's VRBO site. I was visiting my son and his family, with two rambunctious girls and two dogs, and thought a retreat along the way would be a great choice. My room was very comfortable and had both a room heater and window air conditioner, so the temp was pleasant. The view from the front stoop where I had my morning coffee and evening glass of wine was delightful - azaelas bloomed in every shade of pink and cardinals and robins were nesting in the surrounding trees. This site is a 15 minute walk into town and a 10 minute walk to Sligo park and the creek. The Whole Foods served my needs to a "T". Overall this was an excellent experience.
Perfect stay in Silver Spring
Loved my stay. The location was close to downtown Silver Spring, MD where my friend lived. Room was perfect and my hosts had everything I needed for my stay including internet. The bed was very comfortable and the room was cheerful. Would definitely stay here again when I’m in town.
Clean and Private
We were very pleased with our stay here. Andrew and Maria were respectful of our privacy yet made sure we had everything we needed. The room was clean and met all of our basic needs. We didn't mind the 15-20 minute walk to the Metro each day, though for some it might be a bit challenging. The home is located in a wooded area and it didn't feel like we were even in town. Plus, we enjoyed watching the 2 deer saunter through the yard as we enjoyed morning coffee on the porch. We would definitely stay here again.
Nice quiet setting. Great for single or couple.
Was a pleasant stay...quiet area with great places to eat nearby. My only complaint is no tv although was listed in add. Would not have been problem but my laptop quit and couldn't get my netflix..
Dear Nick, the listing specifies that the TV is "Not in the room. But you may use the TV in the basement family room. " We are glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise. Thank you for leaving a review.
Another happy stay here!
I've stayed here twice before this stay. Once again I was pleased with the cozy room with a bed like a nest, the spacious desk, the fridge and coffee pot, and the great location. Maria was so welcoming when I arrived and made a cup of tea for me. I love the location too and find it really works well for me to visit family and friends where we used to live. I apologize for the delay in responding -- once back home we had a crazy snowstorm, no power, and a tree hit the house. Maryland's weather during my stay was gorgeous!
Quiet, safe location and wonderful hosts
The room was clean with good lighting and comfortable bed. Maria and Andrew were extremely responsive to our every request, and we greatly enjoyed visiting with them and learning some things about their very interesting lives. My wife and I used their place as a base for our daily trips to DC via Metro. We used buses (about a 10-min walk) or Uber to reach the Metro station, which is about a 23-min walk. The private entrance to the room makes coming and going convenient without disturbing the hosts. The little refrigerator and coffee maker, with furnished coffee, cream, sugar, and filters, were very nice to have.
