Great Location/House, Landlord Communication Issue

Review submitted: July 6, 2013   Date of arrival: June 6, 2013

We really enjoyed our stay at the Greenbrier House. The house was very nice; particularly the kitchen and downstairs bathroom, the community seemed safe and was within walking distance to a grocery store, movie theatre, and many restaurants/stores. The landlord (Christian) had trouble responding to our multiple e-mails and phone calls after we paid when we were trying to get basic information about what to do within a few weeks of arriving. We asked multiple times over a 2 month period. He kept telling me not to worry every time I spoke to him on the phone and that he'd get me the information very soon, but never sent anything. Eventually my mother grew concerned and intervened (staying there too) and she said he was very rude with her, but he sent us the check-in information the same day after multiple requests. We ended up arriving a little earlier than we thought from Cincinnati and he asked us to come back a couple hours later as he was putting together a bed, even though we arrived an hour after the check-in time.

Here are some notes about the property that may be helpful to others:

1. The washer/dryer is very finicky. It didn't work multiple times throughout the visit. Christian (the landlord) asked me to clean the trap and then go outside and clean the air vent. It would work for about 30 minutes, then stop again. It worked on/off the whole time. The room it is in is also a little scary! The kids called it the "dungeon". :)

2. There were only 4 - 6 towels/wash cloths in the house when we arrived. I'm sure we could have asked for more, but a family member living in DC brought us some. It was pretty light for a house that sleeps 12 - 14.

3. When you arrive on the road, the front of the house is not on Greenbrier, so you probably will miss it. It's the first left on Greenbrier and you're looking at the side of the house and there is no visible house number. There is only 1 lane of parking, so multiple cars/families will have to deal with moving cars (we had 4 cars that we routinely re-arranged).

4. There were numerous things that were minor, but we didn't want to call the landlord. The upstairs toilet seat kept falling off as it wasn't fastened properly and there was a small ant colony in the flooring of one of the bedrooms. The steps up to the house aren't well kept and would be a challenge for someone with a problem walking.

Overall, we really loved the house. Landlord was fine, but communication could be improved.

Review submitted: January 3, 2013   Date of arrival: April 6, 2012

The house proved to be ideal for a family Easter long weekend. There were eight adults. The place was clean with good beds located in bedrooms on three different levels, a fun and somewhat different layout. We particularly enjoyed the large, combined kitchen/dining area. There is a long driveway which can easily accommodate several cars. The neighborhood is safe and attractive. Everything is convenient with a Whole Foods Market within a 10 min walk and the Metro about 15 min away. When the coffeemaker conked out the owner got us a new one immediately. The only reason I wouldn't give this a 5 is because some of the furniture is a little worn. We would stay here again and in fact have booked another stay.

Recommended for: families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car

Good Location - OK House

Review submitted: November 12, 2012   Date of arrival: October 18, 2012

   
 

 

Location was great, and house was in okay shape, but lacked basic things like trash bags for the garbage and small amenities that you might get at a hotel like soap for the shower and shampoos. That's not a huge deal but seemed like something they should consider. The washing machine didn't seem functioning, and would have been nice to use for a long stay.

Mostly, I am rating this home so low because getting our security deposit returned has been difficult. I had to reach out to the owner multiple times to have the money returned.. Please be aware.





 

 

Owners response: It's unfortunate when a guest fails to address their needs or concerns while they are still in the property so we can have the opportunity to correct or answer them. What is hard to understand is that the same guest will post unfair and untrue review once they leave the property.

First, qualifying such an exceptional house as being " okay " is certainly relative but it's not an appealing statement in describing a house deserving of a better rating because of its quality of construction (stone and bricks), its materials of construction (granite countertop in kitchen and bathrooms, hardwood cherry kitchen cabinets, crown molding, quality hardwood flooring throughout, etc..) and all stainless steel appliances, are all top of the line with comfortable and good furniture.

Second, because of guests' personal preferences, we do not provide personal care products such as body soap or shampoo. But in our effort to accommodate guests, we can make provide such things if requested. The trash bags too would have been gladly provided if we were notified that there was none.
The same goes for the washer, no mention of it not working was brought to our attention by the guest while the guest was still occupying the property. The same washer was used by the cleaning crew the same day the guest left and no defect was found.

Last, but not least, we all along extended our apology to the guest for the short delay in returning her Damage Deposit within the scheduled period. It's apparent that guest has been unforgiving for this delay. This is the reason we are now offering guests the additional option of Damage Insurance at the cost of $39 in lieu of the Refundable Damage Deposit of $400.
