The space listed is for an entire end-unit townhouse (3 floors with deck/garden and free reserved parking spot) in a quiet community setting in Columbia, Maryland. Here, you will be within an easy commute to the Town Center, Merriweather Post, and the Lakefront. The house is an easy commute (20-30 minutes) from Baltimore and Washington DC. You can even travel to New York City on a 2 hour Acela train. Our home is set up to cater towards the traveling professional or to be a home away from home. It has a whole office room and more workspace/desk in a bigger bedroom. We have extremely fast FiOS quantum gigabit wireless internet access.

There is a reserved parking space on the premise that is located right outside of the townhouse, which you can use during your stay (no need for hangtag or permit display, you are welcome to use the reserved spot in front of the house at the end of the parking row next to the oak tree). There are plenty of other free parking spots scattered throughout the lots. Columbia is extremely safe and walkable/bikeable with walking paths connecting to all areas.

Interaction with guests:
I am often in town and available if needed by telephone, text, email or Airbnb message. I can have someone drop by if you are renting for a long period to restock supplies or to help with anything. I am a lifelong resident of Maryland and very familiar with the area as well as DC, Baltimore, and NYC if any guests need recommendations for restaurants, tourism, or transportation. The rental is for an ENTIRE home, so you will have total privacy during your stay.
