About Joan Wang

Very friendly and accommodating.

Joan Wang purchased this house in 2003

Why Joan Wang chose Capital Saratoga

We bought this lovely home in 2003 due to its prime location and a Saratogian sensation. The city is a beautiful town, vibrant in the summer with horse racing, Jazz festival, concerts, ballet, and many cool festivities. It has the most amazing restaurants, bars, parks, cold and hot springs, and downtown! We simply love it here and you sure will love it too!

What makes this house unique

Walk to the race track and downtown, place yourself in the center of all activities!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed at this lovely property this past weekend when I was in town for a wedding. I had a really difficult time finding a place in Saratoga Springs for one weekend in the off season at an affordable rate. Most owners were unwilling to rent for only two nights and if they did want to work with us, they would ask for +$100 for a cleaning fee. When I contacted Joan, she was more than willing to work with me. The property was very affordable and she was responsive to my inquiries. We set up the whole stay via email which was very convenient. The home itself is a two bedroom carriage house with a large living room and kitchen. There is enough space to parking for two cars comfortably, four if you are double parking. The house is also in a great spot - a 15 minute walk to the Downtown area or a really quick drive. We ended up making multiple trips to Price Chopper during our stay which was also located nearby and there is a little deli right down the street for emergencies. The kitchen is a little dated but we made it work - it has everything you would likely need but there were no stainless steel appliances which was fine by me. One thing I did fail to notice looking at the picture is that the two bedrooms are connected by a door, but because of the layout of the home, you can close off that specific door and it would be no problem. The property also has a HUGE yard, which would be great if you had kids who wanted to play outside. The pictures are very accurate. When we arrived we were surprised by the dramatic drop in temperature between Saratoga and NJ, but we could not figure out how to turn on the heat. When we contacted Joan, she assisted us immediately, telling us where we could find space heaters, and then called to follow up later that day to make sure everything was okay. I'd highly recommend staying here and if I come to Saratoga again, I will definitely be reaching out to Joan.

Had a great weekend

  • 5 of 5

Used this location as a half-way point to meet family. Loved sitting at the table in the kitchen and talking together. Beds were very comfortable. The property was very clean and cozy. Would definitely recommend to others.

perfect for my family

  • 5 of 5

Joan's place was conveniently located and well equipped. It was perfect for my family of 6 adults. The separate downstairs bedroom worked well, and everyone had plenty of space. Very clean, comfortable and homey. I would stay there again if I ever need a family house in Saratoga Springs.
