Large house conveniently located
If you’ve looked at this house you know it’s large and pretty empty of furniture- that was fine for our stay, we were gone most of the time.
It was clean and the linens were fresh.
The location was perfect for our stay, and it was easy to navigate the area, and taking the Metro into Washington was ideal. The neighborhood was lovely and very quiet.
That being said, there were a few things that keep me from leaving a 5 star review.
If you’re looking for lots of room with no matching decor this is the place for you!
The smaller bathroom upstairs had leaking fixtures and the kitchen sink drain obviously has a significant clog. Water backed up when we washed the few dishes we used.
We did notify the caretaker that there was an issue but had no response.
We’ve rented other VRBO houses, and this is the first time we’ve found that there was a coffee maker and no filters, and a few other minor things.
Overall though I would l leave a positive review and am thinking this may be a work in progress, so hopefully the upgrades will be completed.
If we were back in the area I would definitely rent the house again.
Large home in the suburbs
First, the positives: Best wifi of any VRBO where we have stayed, large, as described, convenient to DC and quiet. Washer and dryer were upstairs, which made it very convenient to do laundry. There is a garage, but we were unable to use it due to the size of our vehicle (large SUV).
The negatives aren't all that many: the house was sparsely furnished, no table and chairs in the dining room (unusable for dining), no TV in the family room adjacent to the kitchen, but we don't watch TV, so unimportant. The kitchen had an odd assortment of plates, flatware, and pots and pans. It does come with a slow cooker, microwave, coffee pot, etc. but basic pans were lacking. Fortunately, I travel with a lot of my own "stuff" so we were prepared. If the next family/group needs wine glasses, bring your own because there was only one plastic wine glass in the kitchen. Someone had done a job on the kitchen: some of the cabinet drawer fronts were duct taped in place and most of the drawers were unusable but there is a large walk-in pantry for storing things. Other than being ugly with the duct tape, the kitchen was okay.
The owner and manager were easy to deal with and pleasant. I would definitely reserve this home again, should I need a residence in the Boyds area.

Value price justifies the 5 stars
The house is very large, clean and has many rooms. Each bedroom has walk-in closets. There are three and a half bathrooms, but one bathroom has a tub large enough for two people, a large shower and a double sink. The ceilings are 10 ft high or higher. The price for the rental is an outstanding value. We all have laptops and smart phones and the internet speed was great. Another great thing about this rental is the pleasant neighborhood that it is in. It is near the South Germantown Recreational Park which has to be among the coolest parks in the country. There is miniature golf, an outdoor Splash area, miles and miles of biking and walking paths, 24 outdoor soccer fields, tennis courts, baseball fields multiple playgrounds, adult playground for exercise, a huge indoor swimming complex with multiple slides, two slides were 200-300 feet long ($10 fee for adults) etc.
Back to the house, when we walked in we saw several pairs of indoor Footwear, and we realized that the owner was from an Asian culture where outside Footwear was separated from inside Footwear. The house, as the other review said, is under furnished, and it was helpful to know this coming in, but it would not stop me from renting it in the future. We did find enough cookware and flatware in the kitchen for the 7 of us to make and eat meals. Few parts of the flatware matched. None of the beds have box springs and the mattresses were thin and firm. But we all slept okay. Both the largest bedroom and the living room did not have a ceiling light fixture though there was a light switch and dimmer on the wall for each room. No curtains on the windows, Two couches in the living room where the only ones in the house. Folding cushioned chairs were used in the dining area and they were beneath the dignity and splendor of the house. The main flat screen TV was on the floor rather than mounted to the wall. And to watch cable television you had to go to the room next to the living room with one of the folding chairs and watch a minimum of cable channels with no high definition. Oh, we brought two rather than three vehicles.. Good thing we only brought two. Parking is tight.
Though I have mentioned the negatives above, I think the home is value priced. You get a lot for the money with this rental.
Thank you so much for your stay and nice review!!!
it was really spacious and comfortable
It was a really nice place in a good neighborhood. We stayed for 2 weeks with family for a wedding and it was very comfortable. The only issue was with trash disposal. We weren't really sure on what the exact days for trash collection were or how it needs to be disposed off. We had kept the trash can out seeing the neighbors keep their cans out but for some reason ours was not collected. My suggestion is to have trash disposal procedure and instructions laid out for the guests (especially if stay is for a long duration)so that they are prepared. Other than this it was a really memorable and comfortable stay. No complaints! Thank you for letting us stay at your place...
Thank you so much for your stay and nice words. We will take your advice on trash collection dates. We will remind future guests about trash rules too. Thank you and look forward to serving again!
House is nice but lacking many needed amenities
This home was nice on the outside. Once inside we discovered that it was very empty and needing some work inside (damaged cabinets,flooring, etc)
The main complaints were that the kitchen was not stocked for cooking, even though this is advertised as "We provide sufficient kitchen items such as dishes, spoons, cups, etc for more than 10 people."
There was not even a pot to boil water in to make pasta. The silverware was lacking and most of it was plastic.
The TV and cable were not connected so we had no way to watch TV while there.
There was not any hand soap, towels, or toilet paper in the bathroom on the main floor.
We were also not sure if someone was staying in the basement area. I looked for a way to use the backyard without walking around, but the basement appears to be separate from the rest of the home, like it's another rental unit.
It is a lovely area to stay in, very peaceful and there are nice parks and shopping nearby.
I do believe with a little more effort and work this house would be a wonderful rental.
Thank you for your response. We do have sufficient kitchen stuff. They are in the kitchen cabinets. Now we show them in photos for guests to easily find them.
There are sufficient toilet papers, bath towels, etc in the second floor cabinet. For fewer people, the basement is locked to avoid extra cleaning cost. Guests can use the basement via request. TV is working. This year, the house has been densely booked so far and into 2~3 of the upcoming months. The more guests we receive, the better we understand the guests' need. We have been improving a lot by focusing on details including nightstands in each room, grill, paintings in house, more rugs in main floor and two 3-seat couches. We still provide cost efficient housing and expect guests try best to self manage their stay in an effort to save cost mutually.
