“Good for State Dept employees”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2008

Good option for long-term residents, as this operation has a fixed deal with the State Dept. Nothing glamorous but lots of pluses:

- It lies in one of the best public school districts in the U.S. Schools are on par with some of the better private schools I've seen.

- Great opportunity for kids to bond with other Oakwood kids, making it much easier to join a new school. The school bus stops right at the Oakwood.

- Once a week maid service, Internet, cable TV, pool, tennis courts, activities included.

- Good insulation so you don't hear much from your neighbors.

- Simplified vouchers.

And a few minuses:

- Not a pretty place, somewhat cheaply outfitted apartments.

- The large amount of kids running the place gets on the nerves of residents without kids.

- Only place to keep bikes is on your balcony. No idea why they don't have collective bike storage.

All in all, you could do worse!

If you are looking for an apartment complex that looses your mail on a consistent basis and provides you with a TERRIBLE parking for its residents than Oakwood Falls Church is for you. The staff was also very unprofessional with their attitude toward my wife on a consistent basis.On the surface, the apartment complex was very appealing but we could not have been more disappointed with what we choose.

Please do not make the same mistake.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2004

Although the Oakwood entertains short-term guests, I signed a one year lease with them. It was the nicest apartment I have ever stayed at. The service is unbeatable, it was like a resort. They had work out rooms, a pool, free tennis lessons, free sunday brunch, a convenience store, and fresh cookies baked daily in the front office. The grounds were flawless and it even had a free shuttle to the metro. I loved it so much, I was sad that my job took me to Southern California (well not that sad!)
