We reserved Zoya's home for a family reunion, with family members converging in Baltimore from various parts of the world. The home is perfect and met all our needs. Bright and colorful, clean, spacious and very comfortable. After day-long excursions in DC and Atlantic City, it always felt like we were coming home, an experience you will not get at a hotel. We cooked a lot, and the kitchen is well stocked with cooking pots, silverware, linens, serving dishes, etc. New washer and drier in the basement, which allowed us to do laundry while we were there (fyi - we brought our own detergent & bathroom supplies e.g. shower gels, toothpaste). Plenty of bed linens, towels & washcloths were available. Little details, like umbrellas on a rack by the front door, were appreciated.
Robert, the property manager, was very gracious and considerate towards us, and made sure we had everything we needed. When we needed an extra cooking pot, wine opener and thermos for hot tea, he lent these to us from his personal kitchen. While we were away for 4 days visiting NYC, Robert took care of pulling out the garbage to the curb on our behalf so we didn't have to worry about missing the pick-up date.
Close to Giant Foods, YMCA and children's park, exactly as described. Easy drive to area attractions, Inner Harbor, and close to John Hopkins Uni. Near Lake Montebello for an evening stroll. It is a solid home, built with concrete and as such, very quiet and you will not hear your neighbors. Nice back patio with table and two chairs. Wifi was excellent, as were TV stations. There are more than four channels, and we carried dvds that our nephew could enjoy.
We hosted a farewell dinner on our last evening, and the home comfortably accommodated a larger group for one last meal together. Whether traveling solo or with a small group, plan on cooking or eating out, this home will more than adequately provide for your needs. What you use by way of paper towels, foil, trash can liners, etc., simply replenish so the visitor after you can also enjoy. We brought our own disposable plates and cups to limit dishwashing.
Zoya maintained great communication from the time we made the reservation and for the duration of our stay. Zoya, we appreciate staying in your home, it is a charm, I highly recommend it, and would rent it again. Your home is in good hands under the care of your property manager, Robert. We also appreciate your referring us to his property for the extra rooms we needed.
