Our guests must love dogs and cats. We have 2 wonderful dogs and 3fantastic cats (all live harmoniously together in the main residence, and all are super friendly)! They will most certainly win your heart! Though we are extremely clean, if you have allergies to animals then staying with us might not be for you. *****If you wish to bring your furkid with you on your journey to stay with us, YOU MUST confirm with us first.*****

Our house is in central location, that is safe walking distance (5 blocks) to West Hyattsville METRO STATION that will deliver you straight into the heart of DC (Green line, 1 stop from Red Line Fort Totten exchange). Our home is also less than 1 mile from the University of Maryland (perfect for football weekends when MD plays at home) and Catholic University. Bus transit stop less than a block away (#12). EASY COMMUTE: 20 minute drive/metro to DC or Silver Spring downtown centers; 20 minute bike ride to the National Mall. Tennis/basketball courts, shopping centers, grocery stores, exercise facilities (LA Fitness (with new pool)), yoga studio, movie theaters, restaurants (including our neighborhood micro-brew pub Franklins, a DC favorite - - Bus Boys and Poets, Indian, Ethiopian, Thai, and Mexican restaurants), city parks, and bike path and nature trails (to Silver Spring and UMD) close by.

We are extremely knowledgeable about various tourist attractions and restaurants in the DC area and are happy to help provide you with all you need to plan your trip. We have guidebooks available at he house to assist you in planing your trip.

We are Canadians and legal residents/citizens of the US who have traveled around the world extensively and love meeting new people from different locations and backgrounds. When we are not globe-trotting we like to get the same kind of experience by hosting guests in our home. Gillian was originally born in Brantford, Ontario but later grew up/attended university in Vancouver, British Columbia. There she studied marine biology and oceanography at the University of British Columbia. Today she is a bio-geochemical oceanographer in the environmental sciences domain of CLS America, a French subsidiary of the Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales (CNES) in France, supporting global ocean satellite technologies for environmental monitoring and animal tracking. She has traveled extensively around the world for both business and pleasure. Aside from traveling, Gillian enjoys photography, music, gardening, yoga, swim/bike/run triathlon training, tennis, and volleyball. Boe grew up in Carmen, Manitoba before moving abroad with his family to Switzerland. He played Canadian Junior Hockey and later attended Union College in NY on a hockey scholarship. After this he traveled to Europe where he had a successful career playing professional hockey. Now retired, Boe continues to train and is a professional hockey coach and successful business owner. He works in global youth hockey development in both the US, Canada, Mongolia and New Zealand. Boe also thoroughly enjoys travel, physical fitness, golf, and adventure sports. Both Gillian and Boe enjoy music, cooking, and playing sports together, but most of all enjoy spending time with their two children Kailen and Laykelyn.

If you are interested please contact us. We would love to host you! :)

We are a 4-person family who live in the home above the apartment. We are generally around and available to assist guests as needed, however we believe in giving our guests privacy to feel as though they're at home. For guests that visit for long durations we often invite them for a meal or an enjoyable glass of wine in the garden. The apartment is a self-contained apartment with it's own entrance/exit - it's not unusual to rarely see guests unless a concerted effort is made.

Annat att notera

The apartment easily accesses all local sporting venues: Washington Capitals and Washington Wizards play at the Verizon Center also located on the Green Line Metro at the Chinatown-Gallery Place stop; Washington Nationals park is a straight shot from West Hyattsville metro to Navy Yard station; and Washington's football team plays in Landover, which is a half hour drive through the back roads, even on game days.

If you wish to bring your animal with you, as a courtesy you *****must confirm with us BEFORE making your booking.*****

Amazing place and fantastic hosts. The communication was great. I couldn't have asked for a better place and hosts as I transitioned into the area.

If you are looking for the perfect Airbnb, look no further. Gillian and Boe provide the perfect place to spend your time in the DC/Maryland area. They are just fantastic people and make your stay as comfortable as possible. They were waiting to meet us when we arrived and Boe even helped us bring our bags in. Their dogs are just amazing and it made us feel at home being huge animal lovers and dog owners. We can not thank them enough for all their help on our apartment searching and thanks to them we found the perfect spot. We highly recommend their place to anyone. They are the true definition of super host.

Another great stay at Gillian & Boe's lovely apartment! The apartment is fabulous with so many special touches - they have really thought of everything. It feels like my home away from home! Thanks so much for hosting me once again! I look forward to next time.

I booked Gillian & Boe's place for my parents when the whole family was visiting Hyattsville and we couldn't all fit at my house. Check-in was very smooth, as I was able to pick up the key in advance and get a full tour from Boe. Boe was very kind, and he and Gillian have clearly thought of everything. My parents loved the apartment and said it had everything they needed (and more). It was extremely clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The location was perfect for us, and it was a huge plus that our dog was allowed to stay as well. They didn't get a chance to take advantage of the nice outdoor space, but it was great to have the option. This will definitely be my first choice the next time I need more space for visiting relatives!
