2/5 Poor

Safety and Cleanliness Concerns
I really didn’t want to write such a poor review but since the property manager has been unresponsive to my numerous messages, it has to be done. 1. Issue number one is the cleanliness factor. There was trash left all over the house upon arrival, the bathrooms being the worst with dirty sink, tub and toilet. We ended having to buy some cleaning products and wipe everything down. Overall cleanliness was just not up to par. 2. There were also many bugs, i.e. a couple of roaches, millipedes, and flies in the shower. 3. The back door was wide open upon arrival and in the middle of the day we had an intruder come into the house as we were preparing to head out to dinner. He walked all the way up the stairs until we scared him and he claimed he had the wrong house and sped away. Trying to gauge how often the house code is changed because that is a huge security risk. It was quite terrifying to have someone open a locked door so easily and come all the way inside and upstairs. With all this being said we ended up leaving a day early. I loved the area and how close it was to everything as well as the house layout but there are definitely improvements needed here.

1/5 Terrible

Description is Fake
The property is very dirty, the smell of rusty water is all around the house. The district is very unsafe. The stairs leading to the 2nd floor are super steep so make sure your older parents know that before your book. Linens are so dirty that it is almost unsanitary to sleep on them. Overall, very bad and unpleasant experience for my entire family... Would not recommend to stay there even if offered for free next time.

4/5 Good

Washington DC
Easy to walk to train and bus stops. Hated only having one television in the house. Not enough good channels to watch either. Would be nice to have some games or cards there. Also blankets on the bed for those that need them.

3/5 Okay

Needs a little TLC
Loved the location and it’s very cute but it got very cold and all it has is small wall heaters that didn’t work very well because the couch blocked the heat. There were no extra blankets. The house needed basics like salt and spices. The only thing the house had was pepper and oil.

2/5 Poor

Dirty and rundown
In this time of a pandemic one would expect a higher level of cleanliness. I can’t believe Evolve doesn’t enforce better cleaning standards. This place reeked of smoke that hit us in the face as soon as we walked through the door. It took 2 days to air it out a bit. So much for the no smoking policy in the listing. Most of the pots and pans are rusty. There are few supplies in the kitchen which makes using the kitchen unlikely. Someone put wet dishes into the cupboard so when you take out a plate or a bowl, water drips from them and still, many of the plates and bowls had crusty goo on them so they weren’t even clean. The floor is so dirty that our socks are all brown from walking on it. There are clumps of hair and dust on the floor and most of the surfaces are covered in dust. The window sills haven’t been cleaned in years. There was a hole in the ceiling with wires sticking out where the smoke detector would be. We travel a lot and have stayed in many owner rentals, and usually have great experience with that. We thought this experience would be comparable. It’s not. I am extremely disappointed in this place, for the money, it’s not a good value. I will definitely reconsider ever booking another property with Evolve. It’s unbelievable that they charged quite a hefty cleaning fee for this filthy place which obviously hasn’t been cleaned in a really long time.
