High speed Wifi, fireplace, mini fridge, coffee maker, microwave, toaster oven (but no kitchen). When you arrive, the hosts provide the fixings for a gourmet continental breakfast.

The space
The hosts are the kind of people who care about the comfort of their guests. The bedroom is chic and well equipped with closet space, hangers, spa robes, reading lamps, and a control-it-yourself heating unit. Adjacent to the unit's entrance: a private patio surrounded by greenery. There is WiFi throughout the unit. The sitting room, also newly renovated, has two comfortable chairs, a table for dining, plus a desk and bookshelves. There is no kitchen, but the unit is equipped with a mini-fridge, a microwave, a toaster oven and a Keurig coffee maker.. A wall with a sliding pocket door separates the suite from the rest of the house ensures guests' privacy. The hosts provide foods for a healthy continental breakfast when guests arrive --fruit, yogurt, bread, coffee, etc. The unit is completely private. The laundry room is shared with the family.

Where you’ll be

Chevy Chase, Maryland, United States

Ours is a pretty, heavily treed, Mid-century modern neighborhood of relatively small houses in the town of Chevy Chase. (We are located a mile and a half from downtown Bethesda two miles from Silver Spring and a mile and a half from the District Line.) Chevy Chase straddles the line between Maryland and The District of Columbia. We are located on the Maryland side, but the neighborhood is oriented towards the city -- you can zip downtown by car in 20 minutes in non-rush hour.

I am a freelance journalist who writes often about food. My most recent book was about coffee--count on drinking good coffee at our house. My husband, John Melngailis, is a retired scientist who owns a teeny tiny company that markets authentic Baltic Rye Bread -- count on eating good bread --rye and otherwise-- at our multilingual house. John speaks English, French, German and Latvian fluently and he can also get by in Russian. As to my talents as a host? You can count on me to be clued in on the best places to go --cafes, restaurants, museums and hiking trails in nearby Rock Creek Park.
