Default Charles County

I just got offered a job in Charles County and am in the process of finding a house or townhome to rent. I have less than 2 weeks to find a place and move. I will be working in western Charles county. Does anyone have any recommendations of townhome complexes or towns to live in? I have done a lot of internet research, but I can't find many sites with rental units (Other than Waldorf...but it's too congested for me and I'd like to stay away from that). Any info would be helpful!

Waldorf is going to be your concentration of rental market. If you change your mind about moving there, post again and I'll tell you some complexes to avoid. Off the top of my head, I would say avoid anything in Bannister (actually RUN from Bannister), that area off of Acton Lane and Western Parkway (theres townhouse complexes on each of the 4 corners -- aviod them, they have quiet streets but small bands of muggers/robbers/wanna-be thugs roam the area at night during the spring/summer). Also avoid Carrington. Look for the smaller complexes (the one directly across from the Home Depot is nice).

There's also a nice complex in LaPlata to the left of Route 6, they are all brick and it's not too many of them.

Thanks for your help! I would consider Waldorf if I had to. I'm from PA and am very unfamiliar with the area. Which sections of Waldorf would you recommend? I see a lot of townhomes for rent in that area, but I have no idea which areas are safe/quiet and which are not.

I friend of mine used this site when she was looking to rent. It might be worth looking at.

I looked in lots of townhouse complexes in Waldorf, and there are not many that I would recommend. As I said in my first email, there is one directly behind Home Depot (Home Depot is on 301, but the back of it faces Western Parkway) that seems nice. There are some in White Plains that also seem nice, I believe they are called High View or High Point, something like that. They are 4 stories. Here are specific subdivisions that I would stay away from:

subdivision names: Homestead, Tanglewood, Carrington, Dorchester, Coventry Manor, Acton Villas, Stanford

Street names: Heathcote, Robinson. Also anything off of St. Charles Parkway, Smallwood in zip code 20602 should be avoided.

The better zip codes for rentals in Waldorf is 20603, the areas on either side of Berry Road. If you can afford a house rental as opposed to a townhouse rental, check out this area.

If I have specific complex names are street names I can help more.

Hi, Mom21, my husband and I were looking at Waldorf and I found your post. Are you saying that we should stick to zip code 20603 in Waldorf. We are looking to rent a SFH. Are there any communities/zip codes we should avoid when looking for a SFH in Waldorf?
Thanks
