About Our Home
We have a 4-bedroom/2-bathroom home (2 bedrooms on bottom floor, 2 on top). On bottom floor there is a double bed in one room and a bunk bed with full on bottom and twin on top in the other. On the second floor there is 1 room with a double futon and one room with a king size bed that share a bathroom. There is a couchbed in the basement and a sectional couch in the living room that could sleep 1 adult or 2 kids. We have a vegetable garden and patio out back. We have a TV/DVD player and Netflix access. We'd consider an auto exchange. We have 2 young kids and have a crib and a height chair, and tons of toys in the carpeted basement.
Special Considerations
No smoking or drugs in house. Guests must take care of our 2 cats and plants inside and outside.
Hundreds of restaurants of all types within short walking or driving distance
Downtown Silver Spring has nightlife within 15 minutes; DC within 20-30 minutes driving or metro ride
Nice downtown with some local shops in Takoma Park; DC has much more
Heaps in DC
Hiking is possible but most don't come here for that.

  Personal Message

When we're home, we are happy to welcome couples, single females or families, but not single men. Sorry. We can put together a spare bedroom with a double bed but for no more than 3 nights in a row. For an exchange, we have 4 bedrooms, 1 king, 1 double, 1 bunk beds with a full on bottom and twin on top, and 2 twin trundle beds. We have 2 full bathrooms. We're 13 minutes walk from the metro to Washington DC, which is 15-25 minutes by metro.
