After staying at this property for one week, it is clear to me that opinions must be taken with some very large grains of sand. If you expect a model home done by Martha Stewart, this is not for you. If you expect to be in the city of DC, a few blocks from the mall, check the map before you rent, this is not the place for you. If you want a condo, a couple of blocks off the Metro line in a quiet neighborhood, that is what this is. We (a family of 4) found the location to be an excellent base for our one week stay. We went to DC for the day, and came back when we tired the kids out and our day was done.
The owner of the property was service oriented and was only a phone call away if we had any questions, concerns or needs. His wife provided some excellent suggestions for places to eat in the area that we were staying, we took advantage of that. If you do not have an auto during your stay, there is a grocery store across the street from the condo complex. If you do have an auto, travel a couple of miles down the road and take advantage of the Wegman's grocery by the interstate... we did on a regular basis. There is also a Costco in the same area that can be very helpful (if you are a member).
The place is clean, comfortable, convenient and everything there works just fine. We were pleasantly surprised with how quiet the area was at night... we slept with the windows open and were not disturbed at any time. The only drawback we encountered is that the unit needs to be painted. Unless you plan on spending all day sitting in the condo, I do not see where this is the basis to provide a bad rating to the property. From my conversation with Ben, he is aware that this needs to be done and is planning on addressing it as soon as his rental schedule opens up so he does not have to inconvenience any of the guests, very understandable from my perspective.
Overall my family was very happy with this rental unit and would recommend it to friends and strongly consider staying there the next time we come back to DC.
