About the property

Nice 2-bedroom home away from the tourist crowd, but only minutes from D.C.

This is a cozy detached home with wonderful amenities in a quiet suburban Maryland neighborhood less than 15 minutes drive from downtown Washington, D.C. This home is located in a peaceful enclave that is within walking distance (two blocks) of the Metrobus line with easy connections to the Metrorail system. A CAR, HOWEVER, IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BECAUSE LOCAL PLACES (RESTAURANTS, GROCERY STORES, MALLS, ETC.) ARE NOT WITHIN REASONABLE WALKING DISTANCE. The home is tastefully furnished and features a small kitchen, dining room, 2 medium-sized bed rooms, a large great room (with a queen-size sleeper sofa) and gas fireplace, a downstairs rec room and half-bath, and complete laundry facilities. The exterior includes large front yard and fenced back yard with off-street parking and a covered carport. Cable TV and Wi-Fi are included along with gas, electric, and water utilities. WE OFFER DISCOUNTS TO ACTIVE-DUTY MILITARY. Pets are generally welcomed, but check with us for specifics.

What makes this house unique

This home offers advantages seldom seen in a rental property. It is located in near-in suburban Maryland, in a quiet enclave away from tourists and busy metropolitan activities, yet it is only about 15 minutes from downtown Washington, D.C. It is only 2 blocks walking distance from a Metrobus stop, which enables quick, easy connections to the entire Metrorail system that puts the entire Virginia, Washington, DC, and Maryland areas within your easy access. A CAR IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BECAUSE LOCAL PLACES (GROCERY STORES, RESTAURANTS, MALLS, ETC.) ARE NOT WITHIN REASONABLE WALKING DISTANCE.

We LOVED Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for about a month at this location and we loved it. The house had a comfortable feel to it and was close to many of the major areas. Rick was so accommodating to our needs at any given moment. We had to leave a few days earlier than expected and Rick was just extremely helpful and made us feel as though we were no issue. I highly recommend Rick's services since he made the trip for us less stressful than we imagined. If we need to stay in Maryland again we will be reaching out. Thanks Rick!

Rick is Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, toddler, dog, and I needed a place to stay during the transition of selling our house and finding another house to buy. Rick was VERY good at accommodating our needs. We started off with renting for 2 months, but we didn't find a house to buy. So, Rick let us rent one month at a time until we found our house. He even gave us a discount since we wound up staying 5 months total! The yard is fenced in so it's perfect if you have children or a dog, or both! The living room is huge, great for a play room and TV room. We loved that there was also a washer and dryer. The house is on the D.C. line, so it's a great location for families who are vacationing. The neighbors are very nice, too. Thank you, Rick for everything and making our transition a little easier!

Clean, Pleasant, Convenient

  • 4 of 5

My husband and teenaged son and I rented this place for almost two months while moving to Maryland from New Mexico and were very happy with our experience. Rick was a wonderful host. VERY responsive and considerate, doing whatever it took at any time of day or night to make sure we were comfortable and taken care of. There was a plumbing problem upon our arrival, and he had a plumber out as soon as possible on a Sunday at no cost to us. The street is fairly quiet with nice families. The kitchen is good for casual cooking, but a little small if you are planning heavy cooking for a family. The yard is a good size and well kept and worked for our dog (though the bottom of the fence can be sharp and she did cut her paw trying to retrieve her ball and have to have stitches, so be careful if you have a digger or a small child who might explore!). The location is very convenient to D.C. and not too far from Annapolis, and we got more attached to our little temporary nest than we had expected.:) Thanks, Rick, for making us feel at home during our transitional chaos!
