Our trip was planned up to the last minute, it was 28 University students and dates kept changing. Reid Management worked well with us. It was a little difficult getting a hold of someone to obtain the key, but only because we were calling last minute and did not give enough time to properly process paperwork. The house is wonderful! All the students as myself highly recommend the home. It's in a great neighborhood, quiet, safe, and close to everything. We will be using this property again in the future - but will give more time to allow proper paperwork to process.
Thank you Reid for being very patient.
This house is in a very convenient, quiet and safe neighborhood. It is about 7 blocks to the Easter Market metro but only 5 from the Potomac where there is a great grocery store, Harris and Teeters. The house was well equipped but very old and a bit musty, certainly nothing fancy. The master bed was only a double. It was great to be able to eat there even though the stores and shops are very close. The house also has internet which isn't advertised on the web page. I would recommend this to my friends who aren't afraid of a little extra walking and don't require 5 star lodging.
We were looking for a reasonably priced place to stay over our spring break with my husband, myself and our 3 kids. the location was fine-and the unit itself was ok. we werent as concerned with luxury for this vacation as we were with price. so, the price was good for the 2BR. I guess i wouldnt be writing this review other than the fact that about 3 weeks later i received my security deposit back minus 35- for what they claimed was a stained rug ($25 to clean) and a stained washcloth ($10). As for the rug, i dont remember much for floor coverings in the unit, but when i look back at pictures i see there was a small rug under a coffee table, so i am assuming that is what they meant. i disputed this stain with the owner, but its his word against mine so i will learn my lesson and check things out a bit more carefully when i rent and perhaps take pictures. the place was not furnished with new furnishings, so if there was a stain i believe it had already been there, and when you rent a lower priced unit i dont expect perfection, so if there was a stain i truly believe it had been there. as for the $10 washcloth, neither i nor my daughter wear makeup and i personally pulled all the towels and washclothes while we were cleaning up, and i know we did not have a stained one. i told the owner that they should do away with white towels if they want to minimize further staining. no brainer! these were not $10 washcloths so i feel this charge was excessive. i guess its the principle of being charged for 2 things that i know we did not do that bothers me. if yu are looking to rent this place, make sure you take your own pictures or call the owner and have him physically check the condition of the place before you even unpack. the place was rented to us as sleeping 7; there were 3 plates and 3 cups in the cupboard. on the third day after i called the owner went to another units and i carried more plates into our unit from one next door. i didnt complain about this, but merely feel that this should have been addressed before our arrival by the maid. there were 5 full size towels and i never called about that because we had 5 people, but the unit claims to sleep 7 so i feel there should have been 7 towels. renting here will be sufficient for you if you dont mind not being in a super clean place and if you dont want to use the oven (very tight kitchen). just beware of them withholding $ from security dep. that you rightfully should get back.
Location is ok. House could be charming but is old, not completley clean when we arrived. One bed was broken, as well as the fan.
Kitchens are very basic.
On the top of that we did not get our deposit back for no reason.
I would not recomment this house to friends.
Property was very clean. Great location close to Metro and grocery store. Good neighborhood.
Sofas were not in great shape. Combination washer/dryer had a small leak. When dryer was operating, it would trip the breaker. Kitchen was not well stocked with utensils and pots. Manual can opener was so worn out, it would not work. Only one stove burner worked properly. Coffee pot was not the original pot that came with the coffee maker. Pot was too short and could not push up the spring mechanism under the drip basket to allow coffee to drip into the pot, so coffee went all over the counter.
One night, the cold water valve handle in the shower came off. Water was shooting out the broken piping and splashing all over the bathroom. My husband was able to close a valve under the house to stop the leak. Contacted owner. He could not fix the leak so he allowed us to use the shower in an adjacent unoccupied unit. Plumber fixed the problem the next day while we were out sightseeing.
I found the correct coffee pot in the unoccupied unit so I swapped it out. Also found that kitchen overstocked with pots and pans and the eating utensils that matched those in the unit we were renting. It appeared as though someone must have rented both downstairs units and ended up with most of the kitchen stuff in that unit. It would be a good idea for the owner to ensure each unit is properly stocked before each renter arrives.
We stayed the week of june 20-29. It was very nice and enjoyed the upper apartment. But because the home can be split be sure to specify what your needs are. Example, our unit did not have a washer/dryer but that was ok for us.
Another thing, it is not three blocks to the eastern metro. It is much closer to 7 blocks(eastern metro is at 8 th st and Kentucky is one block past 13th). A nice safe walk but still not three blocks. All in all very nice.
