We look forward to your stay with us in this HUGE private, furnished bedroom with ensuite bathroom! We are located in Silver Spring, just a 5 minute walk from the FDA. We are also just a short commute from the NIH, Walter Reed Medical Center, Holy Cross Hospital, AIRP, and several other attractions in and around DC. There is free on street parking in front of the house, or take advantage of the bus stop (Montgomery County Maryland bus route #20 and #22) just one house away or other bus stops just a 5 minute walk away!

The bedroom itself has a queen-sized bed, a large walk-in closet, dresser, desk with chair, and cozy reading corner with overstuffed chair. The bedroom is the master suite of the apartment as it features an ensuite 3 piece bathroom with tub/shower combo.

Sal and Sarah's place was amazing! As a student, I wanted a cozy place that felt like home. This place was perfect! Not only was it an awesome space, but Sal and Sarah made me feel welcome from the moment I arrived. Highly recommend and would definitely book again if I find mysel…

This location is perfect for anyone without a car who is spending time at the FDA. It takes about 10-15 minutes to walk to the FDA campus. The closest grocery store is about a 30 minute walk. Public transportation is limited in this area so I typically took Uber/Lyft to the metro…

Salvatore and Sarah were great hosts! Sarah walked me through everything when I arrived and was always accessible for questions or advice on exploring the area. Wifi was fast and reliable. Replacement of the mattress and chair, as mentioned in another review, would be nice improv…

I have struggled with what to say about this place, so here are my Pro's and Con's. Pros: - Walking distance to FDA!!!!!! - Each person has their own bathroom (although, not sure why I had to pay more simply to have my bathroom be in my room) - Easy to get hold of Sarah and Sal…

Response from Salvatore:
Hi Lindsey, We are so sorry that you found the bed and desk chair so uncomfortable. We had never, in public or private feedback, heard any complaints about the mattress or other furniture items. Your review honestly took us a bit by surprise, since you never mentioned any of these issues during your six week stay (and, you also noted how easy we are to get a hold of). We really value feedback and wanted to let you know that we have since ordered both a new mattress and desk chair for this room. Again, we wish you would have let us know at the time so we could have rectified this during your stay and not caused you so much discomfort. It is our goal to make our rental space both comfortable and a value to our guests, so we have really taken your review to heart (and have made some changes to our profile and listings to better reflect the realities of having a toddler in the same household).

This is a great place to stay for those spending time at the FDA. It's only a 10-15 minute walk and came with most everything you need for an extended stay. The hosts were friendly and always willing to help in any way they could. I had a great time playing with their daughter…

I stayed here during a 6-week stint at the FDA, which is just down the street. Sarah and Sal are fantastic hosts. They are very responsive, kind, and non-intrusive. I really enjoyed chatting with them when we ran into each other, and playing with their adorable daughter and excep…
