While we generally love the PDR, there is one big con for pet owners or if you need someone to access your apt when you are out of town. You only get an electronic key fob for per resident in apt. You cannot pay for an extra. So, if you are out of town, you are forced to give fob to pet sitter. Problem is that you have to get fob back from sitter in order to get back into building/parking and your apt! Getting back really late or early - difficult at best. Plus, unfair since one local pet sitter has a fob from mgr. But we had company we used for years, and the other one had no availability for ours. Not asking for free xtra fob; willing to pay. Just outright refusal. Seems harsh.
Great location in Adorable Delray and the edge of Potomac Yard too! Nice durable fake hardwood floors, very modern looking kitchen and amenities. The hidden from the outside inner courtyard with a pool and gas grills, tons of outdoor furniture and gas fire pits make for great shared space to hang out in. The staff are nice and helpful, have only had occasional issues. Right now its dusty on 1st floor due to common space renovations but should be done in Spring.
Very dog friendly lots of dogs here and Im a happy dog owner.
I just moved here from Seattle. I've toured numerous apartment homes looking for my new home, I can say the staff here at Porter Del Ray have helped me make this my great new home. Amy and Aby have helped me with so many things, hard to count. I would recommend Porter Del Ray - I am enjoying it immensely....cheers
Truly a spectacular place to call home. Location is convenient to public transport as well as main roads, incredible walkability. There are no better staff than those at the Porter. Truly friendly, they get the job done with great professionalism. The apartment homes as well as the amenities are beautifully kept and have the most modern touches. We love coming home to the Porter.
My living experience at The Porter Del Ray has been fantastic thus far. I am very pleased with the amenities and the responsiveness and friendliness of the staff. My only recommendation is to advocate for better communication from the front office to residents, as occasionally information has gotten lost in translation between front office members and in email correspondence between management and its residents. Awesome job thus far!
