We were a little nervous as we had not stayed in a vacation rental before. We wanted a place close to the metro in a safe neighborhood with gated offstreet parking. BINGO! Plus we didn't have to sell spare organs to pay for it.
Some unexpected perks include proximity to a grocery store (about a block) and a Target (about 2.5 blocks).
Some expected perks - privacy. We couldn't hear any neighbors, and we know they had children with them, so A+ for noise control. Also we did laundry while there. There were 2 washers and 2 dryers. We didn't need to wait at all. Parking was easy peasy.
Some cons included the lack of an elevator. This was not a deal breaker for me, but then my fantastic husband didn't make me haul our luggage up 3 flights of steps. Our airconditioner didn't work well, but the nights were cool enough to not really need it. I suspect if we had called to report the problem, it would have been fixed promptly.
Thanks for the...
