Good stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was comfortable for 10 people and the owner was helpful and kind. The parking was big enough to fit 3 cars which made us avoid to park on street.

Conveniently located older home

  • 2 of 5

Conveniently located for the purposes of our trip. Based upon the previous reviews I had a general idea of what to expect and, therefore, I don't want to be critical of the property or the neighborhood. However, I have two complaints.

1. The TV in the master bedroom was busted. I informed the owner via text and he replied "I will try to get another TV, it was broken by the last guests." Well, the TV never arrived during our 4 night stay. That was disappointing.

2. We experienced a terrible problem with gnats. Since bug spray was available in the cabinet, I assumed this was an ongoing problem. We took care of the matter ourselves and did not alert the landlord.

I love old homes and this property qualifies as one. It has a ton of character and if were updated and properly maintained, it would certainly be a gem. In its current state, I would not recommend it to friends or family.

A Place to Lay your head

  • 4 of 5

I read all the reviews for this home and had some reservations. However, after reading one particular review about this being accepted for what it is, you would be fine. I would echo that review. The property is definitely in a dominant ethnic area, this doesn't bother us and everyone was friendly. Not the best neighborhood but also if you go knowing what you're getting into ahead of time you will be good. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs and 1 in the basement with its own bathroom. The only other bathroom is upstairs with the bedrooms. Therefore on the main floor is the family room with a 50" TV, dining room and TINY kitchen, no bathroom, wasn't thrilled with that but oh well. The 5 of us had a good time with no issues, had private fenced parking for like 4 cars. There was no blender, so we bought one and left it there. For the most part things were fairly clean. The dishes, pots, pans etc I would definitely wash, we scrubbed them clean. If you are looking for the Ritz Carlton, this is not it. BUT it is IN DC, close to metro and shopping. If you are looking for an affordable place to stay long term in DC knowing that it is a decent place to sleep and chill, I would most likely stay again. Thank you

Very bad and had lot of troubles

  • 1 of 5

There was a water leak from one of the bathroom in first floor and the living room got flooded with water. We need to clean them quickly and that was bad. Next was power cut. We got stranded for 30 mins. We got the owner on phone after 30 mins and we had to figure the way out.

Next ... Bathroom in first floor is not good for use and we all ended up using single bathroom which delayed all our plans.

Last.. No blender.. I use home away every year.. And this is the first time we faced this issue

Owner's Response: The bathroom got clogged when the family disposed tampon and paper towels in the bathroom upstairs. My plumber responded immediately that night the people called. He unclogged the drain by breaking into the ceiling in the living room directly under the bathroom upstairs. He showed me the woman tampon and the paper towel flushed from the toilet. I host many people yearly, this is horrible. The whole house was littered with trash, the stove and the kitchen utensils were messy with food. Terrible smoke hanged all over the house after they left as a result of two cooking pots burnt with food. I had to trash them because my cleaner could not get it back to the original condition it was. This is the last group I expect to write a bad review. I did not want to claim damages and that is why I kept quiet over the situation I experienced with the group. I paid the plumber more than what the group paid me through out their stay. I believe that there are some good days and some bad days.

A comfortable, affordable, 4 bdrm house, 20 min. from DC- what more can I say?

  • 4 of 5

To those considering renting this home I would advise this: please keep in mind that it's an older home that has had updates to it (new flooring, lighting, alarm system), but has not been gutted and/or remodeled. If you know this in advance, you won't be expecting the wrong thing. It's not a brand-new condo at the Wyndham, but it is a fully functioning home, with ample parking, only 20 min. drive to the capital mall. I think for my kids, who only remember 2 homes we've owned (one built in '96, another in '07) they felt a little shock at some of the "character" of an older home (i.e. very small kitchen, uneven floors, narrow stairs that creak, 1 bdrm just big enough for the bed, etc.), but they got used to it, and we all enjoyed our stay. Again, if you know what you're renting, you'll be very pleased with this home for your stay in Washington.

Now, if you want further details, here are a few: There were quirky things about the home, but nothing I felt were worthy of complaining about. For example, there was no toaster, but we picked one up at Walmart for $7 (and left it there, so those who come after us- you're welcome). The valve on the upstairs shower was connected backwards, so the "hot" is actually cold, and vice-versa. The gate to the rear parking area was broken/removed when we arrived, leaving us concerned about leaving our luggage trailer parked there all day while we left to explore (it's small enough to roll away/steal by hand), but I removed a wheel and locked it inside so- problem solved in under 10 minutes. There were a lot of light bulbs burned out throughout the house, but it has enough lighting so that it wasn't really an issue. The Safeway grocery store nearby seemed small, rather run-down, and heavily used (I waited 25 min. in line to pay for my groceries), but using the GPS, we found there's a brand new Safeway only 1 mile away that felt like any other grocery store at home. Like I said, all of these were minor quirks, but they were all manageable, and nothing to complain about.

If you can deal with these quirks, what you get is a fully functional 4 bdrm home, only 20 min. from the capitol mall. We drove there every day (parked in the Ronald Reagan building for $23/day) using the surface streets through the capitol hill area/neighborhood, and highly recommend that beautiful drive!

We loved our Stay. Thank You Tunde!
