We spent one week in rm 1016 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The people were nice, the condo was furnished quite nicely with excellent kitchen, bathroom, walk-in closet, very large screen tv in living room, (one also in bedroom and bathroom), and secure parking space in underground garage. I had trouble understanding the tv (I am not young) but Christian was extremely nice to immediately come over and walk me through the process as well as provide other information and answer questions. The owner did provide a fairly comprehensive information packet. The location is very close to the Capital Beltway and New Hampshire ave. which gives convenient automobile access to entire area. Because of the government shutdown we needed this access to see other areas than the downtown memorials. We hope to come again.
We were a little anxious as this was our first experience renting a home. We usually do hotels. My family and I were in the area for tourism and to attend a tournament at the University of MD.
We were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, attention to detail, convenience of the location, decor and excellent customer service of the host. We didn't have to ride to the University of MD because there's a shuttle bus that does the round to pick up students from the building.
The condo was richly furnished with great amenities. We felt like we were in a five stars suites.
The rooms were comfortable and our kids enjoyed a TV in every room as well as Xfinity on demand.
There are few metro stations at about few minutes drive from the condo, but we liked parking at the Silver Spring downtown metro which was just about 9 mins drive.
After a long day of tourism, It was refreshing to sit and eat while enjoying the Silver Spring downtown area.
Thanks to Wande, We spend the best trip of our lives.
We have just made another reservation.
Had to book at the last minute because of cancellation by booked place. Very fortunate to find this place and Christian called immediately to confirm availability. Then over and above service the whole time we were there. He picked us up at the train station then took us to get groceries and then even to get a rental car! Any problems we had with the apartment were responded to quickly and resolved by the next day. The guy is an absolute prince and the owner is very fortunate to have him to take care of the apartment.
The apartment is very spacious, large bedrooms, beautiful floors, great layout. The underground parking is fantastic! Photos of furnishings on vrbo website are not current, however and couch and bed coverings need to be replaced. Other items have been discussed with Christian.
I would recommend a rental car, however, as the bus schedule to get to the metro is long and many many stops. Rental car worked out great and was very reasonable.
So appreciative of alll Christian 's kindness and help. Great guy!
My first time using VRBO and we were unlucky enough to have this as our first rental last month. We couldn't even stay one night due to NUMEROUS issues! First, the location itself is in a very questionable area, there is a reason why there is no pic of the outside of the building. Not a chance i was letting my wife and kids leave my sight. When we first walked in, everything looked ok. But after we got our intro from the owner and started to settle in, we started to notice everything that wasnt quite right. Drapes were barely attached and would probably fall down if u so much as breathed on them, tv's wouldn't turn on, ice/water on the fridge didnt work...etc. We wondered if we had come to the right place, so we pulled up the site and started to compare pictures...guess what, not more than one or two pictures on this ad are of the actual condo. Take a look for yourself, in pic #2, the stove is on the right of the dishwasher and in pic#3, the stove is on the left. Pic 2 shows the fridge on the far left wall, but pic 5 shows an empty left wall!! The tv's are not wall mounted, the decor is not what is pictured...i could go on and on, but i'm sure you can do the math and realize the bottom line is that pictures on the ad, are not actual pictures of the condo you would be renting, so you dont have any idea what you are walking into. The furniture and decor is not even close to the same that is shown in the pics, the couch is tattered, not to mention the lovely surprise of a used kleenex in the cushions, so much for sanitizing after every renter.The owner also insists on payment in full, via cashier's check, up front, which after making contact with several other vrbo owner's, i was told that is a highly unusual practice, and very indicative of less reputable owners. I read the reviews prior to renting, and hindsight being 20/20, I truly believe the owner wrote them and/or had friends write them because there is no way i could agree to the descriptions of beauty, cleanliness, five stars...you can read them for yourself and decide. As the review title states...Bait and Switch!
We rented 3 properties from this host and were amazed by the customer service, cleanliness, great amenities and location of the condo.
Thanks for allowing our family to have a great time.
When we arrived in DC the person who was to get us the key did not answer her phone. Hours later, when we were looking for some place else to stay, she finally called. The neighborhood is not safe. The 'secure garage' had a garage door that didn't close. Air conditioner was so loud that windows must remain closed. 2 of 3 elevators were out of order. In the unit, the dishwasher fell out of the wall when we opened it, the drapes fell down when opened. The ' Jacuzzi bathtubs' didn't drain, after the first shower. It looks pretty in the photos, but it's all for show.
We stayed in this property for a week with my kids and parents and it was amazing.
We were first impressed by the beauty, cleanliness and amenities of this property.
We had a free parking in the garage.
We just drove about 9 mins to silver spring or fort totten metro stations which were just about few minutes from DC.
The check-in info booklet had everything we could need from directions to places to how to operate the TV etc..
We are so thankful to agent Wande to help us stay in such beautiful and conveniently located condo...
We will surely come back again
