We have a beautiful, sunny, spacious, fully furnished room with a (mostly) private bathroom for rent in our home, which is a 10-minute walk to downtown Bethesda and a 20-minute walk to the Bethesda metro. The room has three windows, two closets, and an en suite bathroom with a bathtub/shower combination. (The bathroom also has a hallway entrance, but it is used only on very rare occasions by others.) The room has a queen bed, side tables, dresser, desk, bookshelf, mini fridge and microwave, and TV. It's adjacent to a kitchenette (that includes a full-sized fridge, microwave, coffee maker, hot water boiler, hot plate, and toaster oven), pantry, storage space, and sitting area with a television with cable. There is access to on-site laundry facilities and ample on-street parking. The room can be accessed via the house's main entrance or via a side entrance for greater privacy. All utilities, including WiFi and cable TV (in the adjoining sitting area), and monthly housecleaning are included in the monthly rent of $1200. We are a respectful friendly, outgoing family that has lived with au pairs and babysitters for many years, so we have a lot of experience sharing our home. The location is extremely convenient to NIH, Suburban Hospital, downtown Bethesda, 495, and anywhere on a metro line in Washington, DC. We are looking for a non-smoking professional without any pets.
