Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 (including 3 small kids) stayed at the house for a month and it was set up perfectly for us. We had everything we needed and Gail and Danny were very helpful! We would definitely recommend the house to families and those travelling in groups.

Great place to stay, kind hosts, close to Sil Spr

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for us. Clean, close to Silver Spring and the parks, as well as in a good neighborhood. The hosts were super supportive while we were there in recommendations for going out, shopping, etc. This place is PERFECT for those attending the AIRP course that want to be close to the theatre and not have to eat hotel food all the time. I would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks Tim. The house was left in great shape, so glad it worked out for you. We really appreciate our AIRP guests but rarely are they as cute as little Wyatt. Give our best to Juan and Alina. Stay well, Gail & Danny
