About the location

Our five bedroom house in the Washington DC area is perfectly placed to enjoy all the sights and museums of the region, and within a short walking distance of a great park, fantastic swimming pool and bustling restaurants and cinemas.

You can drive to the White House and the National Mall within 25 minutes, which allows you to explore the free Smithsonian Museums, National Monuments, Kennedy Centre. Potomac River, Arlington Cemetery, The Capitol and all that the nation's capital has to offer. Or walk to two near metro (subway/ underground) stations that will whisk you in to the city without the need to find parking spots. Our immediate area is close to Bethesda - a ten minute walk will get you into downtown with bustling shops, cafes and nightlife, and two great cinemas.

On our doorstep is a fantastic public swimming pool with slide, diving board, kiddie pool, main pool and lap pool (5 minutes walk). Even nearer is a huge park with tennis courts, baseball diamonds and two playgrounds. The Crescent Trail is nearby for cycling or jogging and can take you into Georgetown in DC. Easy to pick up bikes under the area's "Capital Bikeshare" scheme.

We live in a friendly neighborhood and everyone will look after you during your stay! Can walk to two Whole Foods stores within 20 minutes (or five minutes drive) with Safeway, Giant and Trader Joe's other local options for groceries.

Day trips can take you to the stunning Shenandoah Mountains, Baltimore, Annapolis, Williamsburg, Gettysburg and other interesting places. A local bus service whisks visitors to New York in 4 hours - the bus stop is an easy 15 minute walk from our home.
