About the property

2 Bedrooms For One Or Two People

The Pictures tell the story. Please call for more information on the house or email me.

This is a water view property only, you can not go down the steps or be on the pier. That part of the property is private and not part of this rental agreement. No entertainment.

There is a separate in law unit attached that is upstairs.

This is a great house for your stay either vacation, or just need to be in the Annapolis area for business. You can Uber to Historic Annapolis for about $14.00 by doing this you dont have to find expenive parking and you can drink lol.

Beautiful Views on the River

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were as advertised; comfortable accommodations for two, and absolutely spectacular views of the South River. Very convenient to Annapolis, and easy trip to DC (on the weekend, we did not attempt a weekday commute.) The beds are a bit small for sharing, so bring someone you really like if you plan to do that!

Mark was very good about reaching out to ensure that everything went according to plan, both prior to the visit and during the stay. Many thanks for sharing your home, and for making the stay enjoyable.

Great price for water view but small beds

  • 4 of 5

Cute waterfront cottage. Great price in the off-season. Full-size beds only were a little small.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review - Yes Double beds in bot rooms as advertised. I used this size bed because the rooms are not big rooms and makes the rooms look nicer. Thanks Mark

Beautiful view and close to Annapolis

  • 4 of 5

Mark was easy to communicate with about the details of our stay. The house was clean and comfortable and the view can't be beat. Different than other Home Away places that we've booked since it's his primary residence it felt very lived in. I might suggest a binder to welcome guests and give suggestions on local highlights. Overall, easy uber to downtown Annapolis for Navy game and local fun.

Powell, OH

Gorgeous place to stay for an extended stay in the area.

  • 5 of 5

The furnishings are new, the beds are comfortable, plenty of TVs, lots of room, HUGE deck.. I could go on, but at the price you cannot beat what you get. The owner is very attentive, and made sure everything was okay with the stay all along the way. I t was a pleasure to meet him, and hope to do business with him in the future, this is on my favorites list :-) so next trip to the area I will check with Mark first. Very happy with the stay.

Only negative, minor at best, had some reception problems with the wireless internet, maintaining bandwidth was a problem because of signal strength. I'd recommend an extender in the unit to bump the signal up for the lower level inhabitants, but I may have just been unlucky lol. My laptop had no problems at all, it was the streaming devices that had trouble with the signal. Anyway, very small issue, on a fantastic stay. Thank you Mark!

The property has a great view of the river, but was not allowed on dock.

  • 1 of 5

It was not as clean as expected... Filthy sink sponge, dirty refrigerator (filled with someone else stuff), bathroom mirror and sink dirty, etc.

No space for your clothes... closet filled with shoes and clothes, no dressers, no place in bathroom for your personal.

1st morning... men pulled up to property to cut trees down in yard! we left for the day!!!

2nd morning... landlord showed up to check on things, said a storm was coming. There was no storm!!!

Oh, and if you like an early roll call, the neighborhood dog barks every predawn morning!

No, not the best stay!!!

Owner's Response: I would like to say that this guest was a great guest and they left my home in good and clean order. They have some complaints that I would like to address. They/she speaks of the house not being clean. It was clean but not surgical clean. When I arrived to check on the house due to the possible wind and rain possibly from the Huracane I was greeted and told by the husban that his wife was a cleaning fanatic and that she was unhappy with some of the areas of the house. Yes, due to the Huracane warnings my tree man told me its was now urgent the dead tree came out which would have hit the house. Yes the sponge on the clean sink was used. I will fix that for future guest Yes, this is my personal residence and I do have some clothes in my closet. I have since made room for guest clothes in my closet as well as two empty drawers at the bottom. Yes, as it states in my Vrbo listing that this is a water view home not water front and that the steps going down to the pire and the pire are private and not to be used. If you are one person or a couple this is a ideal place to vacation or just enjoy your special time. Any questions on this I am open for more information. Thanks Mark
