A Great Start to a Fantastic Rental
We enjoyed our stay and the property had plenty of space for the five of us. It was clean and updated. However, the walls are a bit nicked up, the Apple TV didn't have many free options and was hard to operate (maybe leave directions?), and in the back room where the tv is there needs to be more seating. We actually moved some seats from the front room and put them back before we left. We had to contact the owner in regards to a drip in the master closet, no hot water in master shower and the microwave handle falling off. Maurice answered our calls and texts right away and made things right though. He also allowed us to check out a couple of hours late. There also need to be at least 2 pillows per person on the beds. The mattresses were really nice and everything that is done is high end. I think if the owner continues to work on a few things the property will be amazing!
Worked out really well for nine
The property was very nice. The fold down couch was small and even the kids found it uncomfortable so we had to double up more that we would have liked. It was a great location, we used Uber mainly to get around. The kitchen was nice but lacked a couple of essentials. No propane for grilling and no baking sheet. Having a bedroom on the main floor worked great for my parents. Because 5 of our nine were kids the sleeping arrangements worked. We did have to deal with the basement flooding at one point from rain, but the owner was very responsive. Great trip to DC.
Clean and comfortable beds
I have a hard time rating this one, because the beds were all very comfortable and the house was clean. We also heard back from Maurice quickly with any questions we had. The house wasn’t stocked with things beyond the bare essentials, however, which made it a bit more difficult. No trash cans inside the house and fixtures that broke (a towel bar and toilet paper holder) made it not as enjoyable. The blinds were not secure (one fell down during our stay) as well. We were very happy to fit two cars in the drive way off the street. Again, we found it clean, just not very home-like.
Teresa, thank you for your review. We're glad to hear you enjoyed this clean, comfortable home overall! The small issues you encountered have been repaired and the home has been restocked with all necessary essentials. Thank you again for your feedback and we hope to host you again soon! Best, the Evolve Team
First time VRBO experience and they set the bar high.
Four couples came to D.C. for Rolling Thunder 2019. Instead of getting separate hotel rooms we decided to enjoy the experience together.
The house is in a quite neighborhood and the neighbors are all friendly. There’s a connivence store on the next street over that you can get almost anything if you forget it. There’s also an excellent Pizzeria on that street with a great owner and staff.
The house was like staying in an upscale hotel. It’s clean and modern just as the pictures show. The towels and linens were of great quality. We even took a picture of the mattress tag so we could buy one because it was the best night sleep I’ve ever had. Everyone in our group agreed.
I’m very impressed with this property and hope my next VRBO stay isn’t a disappointment compared to this.
My only suggestion would be to upgrade to blackout curtains in the bedrooms so if you wanted to sleep past sunrise you easily could.
Excellent overall experience!!!!!!
Alexandria, VA home
Manager was nice and accommodating! Home was very clean and spacious. Would definitely use again.
Annual Family Outing
This house was everything that we could have asked for. The location was perfect for us and the house is very close to shopping with easy access to 395 and DC. The home owner...Maurice...was extremely helpful when we had a couple of issues. Although they were very small issues...smoke detector needed a battery and a light bulb was burnt out...he came right over and took care of them. He even went out and bought new chairs and a grill so we could take full advantage of the beautiful back patio area. I always try and rent units through VRBO and have had excellent success so far...and this was no exception. When we are back in the DC area we will not hesitate at all in trying to secure this house again.
