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.
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.
