We lived in one of their townhomes for 3 years. Candi was always very courteous and accommodating. Phil dealt with the maintenance and was responsive and helpful. He was usually quick to fix any necessary repairs. We thought they were fair landlords. We would recommend renting from them and would again in the future.

    DO NOT RENT FROM CANDI AND PHIL! Worst experience of my life. To begin they're beyond over priced a 4 br 1 ba is $450 not including parking, a washer/dryer, electric, cable, WiFi or AC. If you like being yelled at for maintenance issues within your apt call Phil he's your guy! Got a sink leak? that's your problem, got roaches? go get some traps, got a ceiling leak? put a bucket under it, bats flying in the living room? Don't call us after 8 pm. Always keep AT LEAST 5k in your bank account, because you never know when or how many of your checks she'll deposit!! Oh and your security deposit forget that! They fail to mention in any of the legal documents that you and your roommates get to pay for the carpets being cleaned and the entire apt being painted. They also make sure to give you hand written recites when paying your monthly rent:) All in all PLEASE spare yourself time, money, and tears It ain't worth it!

      Completely regret renting from candi and Phil ondo. Phil makes you feel horrible for asking for anything. Litterally almost made my roommate cry with his rude comments blaming everything on us. He fails to take note that the apartment he gave us was crap from the start with everything being crappily repaired.

        I lived in Brickyard Apartments. Though advertised as a "luxury" place to live, it is an older building and that definitely shows. Got my security deposit back and was charged to clean the fridge (which was impossible to keep clean due to leaking). Was also charged to fix things that were already broken when I moved in. The landlord and maintenance man were receptive when we needed them, but in my opinion, you can find a much better place to live in Morgantown. The neighborhood is loud, the experience was mediocre at best, and the charges on the security deposit were nit-picky.

          Candi and Phil are great landlords. Highly communicative and caring, perfect with paperwork, attentive to maintenance. GW Phillips Villas is a wonderful place to live, for convenience of town life, while still really living in the country. We can't recommend Ondo Rentals highly enough!

            EDIT: I'm just reviewing Ondo Rentals as a company. We didn't live at Brickyard, whatever that is. We lived in a townhouse owned and managed by Ondo Rentals. We had a great experience renting from Ondo Rentals! We didn't see the negative reviews until after we had already signed the lease, so we were a little apprehensive when we moved in. However, it couldn't have been a better experience. Mr. & Mrs. Ondo were very nice, and the one time something broke (washing machine), Mr. Ondo was over the next day with a replacement. When we moved out, we did our best to clean everything to the specifications of our lease. We received our entire deposit back, less money to cover the oven cleaning (which I had let them know I hadn't gotten to) and one set of broken blinds (which I annoyingly broke the day we moved out). I think the key to having a good experience is to not act like an entitled jerk. Follow the lease rules, pay your rent on time, and report anything that breaks/gets damaged promptly. Emplyment relocation was the only reason we moved. (I posted this on other review websites. I'm trying to counteract the… See More>

              GW Phillips Villas was a fabulous place to live. It's tucked away on the outskirts of Westover, so it's a quiet oasis compared to the rest of Morgantown. Ondo rentals was the best landlord I've ever had. They were always quick and efficient with maintenance, and they actually know you instead of just being another person leasing from them. Phil and Candi Ondo are so sweet and they make sure that you are happy while you're living there. The hill can be daunting in the winter, but Phil was always great about trying to get it salted and cleared as soon as possible after a snowstorm. My security deposit was returned quickly and efficiently, and the only major charge was a carpet cleaning, which is much better than what I've gotten in the past from other landlords. I highly recommend this apartment complex.

                While living at G.W. Phillips I have had a wonderful experience. My apartment is beautiful. The property is quiet and secluded but still close to town. I have never had any issues with my apartment or my landlords. Candi and phill are great landlords. When the wind storm took out the power they came and talked to my neighbor and myself. They let us know they too were trying to help us get the power company out and notified us that the would be back in the morning with different truck. After the snow storm of 2016 Phill came out with the plow and got everyone's car lose and plowed the parking lot. The whole apartment building came out that day. We worked as a team getting the little things uncovered with snow shovels. Phill is always out moving the grass. He'll fix any problem you could possible have if any. While on vacation out of state I had some issue with my bank account that would have effected the rent check; Candi assured me that everything would be fine. She was understating and patient as I worked the issue out. I had one lees stress that day… See More>

                  Do not live at brickyard. Things are falling apart. The toilets clog with nothing being flushed at all. The landlords take forever to fix anything. Parking is ridiculously priced, and the laundry room is always gross and only two dryers out of 10 worked. Our heat would never work and Phil would blame it on us. Windows are all broken and our electric stove would always catch on fire. Just do yourself a favor and don't live here.

                    I lived in the largest unit at the Brickyard (above the laundry) several years ago. I wanted a place downtown with gated parking. I also wanted a reasonable rent, and this unit was cheaper than many downtown "student" apartments. I never had any issues with the unit itself. I got to know Phil and Candi well, and Phil was always around, grabbing stuff from his workroom for fixing his various properties. This building is on the corner of Grant and 1st, and if you don't expect some parties and noise, you're clearly unfamiliar with the locale. The problems listed on this site are likely related more to the renters themselves than the units or landlords. Didn't change your furnace filter for 6 months and wondering why your AC isn't working well? Clogging a shower drain with hair instead of using a drain stopper designed to stop that specific problem (which can be bought at any store for $1)? Phil and Candi have rental properties all around town, and the quality of the rental experience seems to relate to the renter. I left the unit in better shape than I found it, and was returned my full deposit.

                      I would never rent from these landlords ever again. Ever. When I called to have something fixed, they were very rude to me like I was bothering them, meanwhile in the lease it says to contact them immediately if there is a problem. Also the area is not very well-lit and at one point over the summer the grassy area next to my apartment grew so high that the weeds literally grew up to my knees. The grass hadn't been cut or taken care of in at least a month. Just generally rude people to deal with. When I moved in I requested that some of the walls be repainted since they looked awful. Nothing was repainted for 2 months and I came home one day and my wall was painted. I received NO notice that anyone was going to be in my apartment AND the alarm that I installed on my front door had been painted over. Talk about having no regard at all for my belongings. Also, the walls in the building are so thin that I can hear entire conversations of the people above me to the point where… See More>

                        Worst experience ever! The apartment is old and has a lot of problems. Horrible insulation. Very noisy (you can hear through the walls of your neighbors). The owners are horrible, they are very rude when it comes to helping with the apartment. When you have a problem Candi does not respond to your texts/calls. But if something is wrong with us she texts immediately. Candi comes off as cool at first, but turns out to be a total -----. Parking is $250 a semester (raised to $300 next year) for a ------, one-lane parking lot. They do nothing to keep the property clean, there is glass everywhere. I would not recommend anyone to live here.

                          I had an awful experience with Ondo Rentals and I will never rent from them again. During the two years I stayed with them the ceiling started falling down, the bathtub leaked, the toilet started to sink into the floor, they never replaced the extremely dirty carpet (with burns in it throughout the building) and the floor fake tile broke off in many places. We had a major infestation of bees in our kitchen (they burrowed through the wall not the window) and the Ondo's wouldn't answer the phone all day. When they finally did they saiid there was nothing they could do. Other than the bees we had so many spiders, millipedes/ centipedes, stinkbugs and many other bugs I do not have names for. The living room window broke in a storm and they blamed us and made us pay for it when the windows didn't even sit in the window correctly. Our refrigerator broke and all our food spoiled by the time it was fixed and they didn't pay for any of the groceries we had just bought. When move-out time came they charged us for the window and not appropriately cleaning the appartment (We spent three days… See More>

                            Worst Landlords

                            Candi and Phil Ondo are some of the worst renters you'll find in Morgantown. Their properties are rundown and obviously not well maintained. I lived without a bathroom window for more than 2 months because they are lazy and don't fulfill commitments. They're just plain rude when you speak to them. Phil has said to me multiple time, "Candi has no idea what she's talking about." They're both ignorant and terrible business people. Candi acts very unprofessionally and does and says a lot of things based on pure emotion. None of their tenants get their security deposit returned and they charge you for anything that happens, even if it's something out of your control or their fault. Rent from Ondo Rentals if you really need to, but I would recommend against it. It has been nothing but a pain dealing with them. I'm writing this because I strongly feel like people need to know how awful it is. I hope someday their realtor license gets revoked. The world would honestly be a better place.

                              I would recommend this landlord to anyone!!

                              Ondo Rentals has by far been the best landlords that I have rented from in Morgantown. Candi makes herself ready for her tenants by so many methods, any problem is solved quickly. The lease is fair; I have leased two separate properties. Candi allowed me to bring my dog to a house that was not necessary listed as a pet-friendly home. My rent was always very fairly priced and she was considerate of financial situations. When moving from one property to another, I learned that as long as you follow their cleaning and move out instructions you will get your security deposit back. I would recommend Candi and Phil to anyone in Morgantown. My homes have been quiet and while I was a college student it felt as though I was coming home and not just to an apartment.

                                Great for partiers.

                                I lived at Brick Yard this year, and it was an adventure, to say the least. The landlord was decent about helping out with problems around the apartment, but didn't seem to care about the loud parties our neighbors had both inside and out at pretty much every opportunity. Even if there weren't parties, the loud music we were "treated" to rarely ceased in the evenings, even upon complaints to both the landlord and the police. <br><br>While the lease says no kegs inside the building, after several keg parties where it -was- kept outside, we began to notice kegs on balconies. The stairwells often reek of alcohol, and the laundry room isn't open on a very reliable schedule. God forbid you don't go home for Spring or Thanksgiving Break and need to do laundry.<br><br>The apartment in itself was absolutely fine, and the landlord was lenient with payment of rent, etc. It's not a great place, necessarily, but it's still a lot better than some of the slums around here. Just bring your earplugs.
