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.

be careful before you book

  • 1 of 5

I had the worst experience I have ever had with this property. I arrived with lots of groceries to cook a nice meal, but the kitchen was very dirty, the refrigerator was dirty and was full of open rotting food, empty containers and very little room for my food, the oven did not work, the pots were not clean and the silverware drawer was visibly dirty with old food drippings. In the morning the fruit I had left on the counter to ripen had been half eaten by rodents. I couldn't fix dinner there and went to take a shower and there was no soap. The next day after I informed the owner that his place was unacceptable and that I was leaving, his reply simply included his case number for my complaint with zero apology or anything. He said Nothing to me. Just sent me his case number which was of no help to me. I am waiting to hear if VRBO plans to assist me in getting a refund. / The property does have a beautiful view and the rest of the house was ok.

Owner's Response: PLEASE READ MY RESPONSE: I have spoken to VRBO per your request. Here are my rights with VRBO. My Rights are to not give in to your demands/Bullying. You never gave me a opportunity to fix any of the issues you spoke of in your email to me. I called my cleaning company and they have a issue with the cleanness issue. I told you personnaly it was my primary residence so it should be expected that I would have some food in the refrigerator. As to the fantom mouse issue I have not seen nor have my cleaning ladys seen a mouse or evidence of a mouse in years. Per your demanding email to me you state that you had finished your business in the area so I can only assume you no longer needed a place to stay so you went home. You left a good property to vacation in. I don’t take kindly to your threats that if I don’t refund you 100 percent of your money you will put a bad review. So go ahead and do that. I will tell my story per this email and the fact that you gave me no opportunity fix any of your issues. I don’t like having to write this kind of email. I have rented my property at least to 9 couples before you in the past 3 months. This is the only bad review I have received. Thank you, Owner

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!
