About the property

5 Bed, 5 bath Downtown Home which sleeps 12

We are offering our downtown, upscale, renovated house in the extremely desirable location of Murray Hill in Annapolis. This location enables you to walk to everything Annapolis has to offer in ten minutes or less. Come with your car and you never have to move it! We are three blocks from the Westin Hotel complex which offers a fabulous Aveda spa, great pizza pickup, gourmet Italian al fresco dining and always fun Fado Irish pub with al fresco dining as well. We are also three blocks from the famous Ms Shirley’s restaurant named by the food network as having the country’s best breakfast! Bring your appetites as it is truly decadent!

Travel three blocks in the other direction of our street and you will find the lovely body of water called Spa Creek. Take our double kayak for a ride into town to city dock and view Annapolis by waterway, a special perspective that is not to be missed! Or you can enjoy the ride into town by the water taxi which will also pick you out at the waterfront park at the end of our street and take you to city dock or any of the waterfront restaurants in town. If you don’t feel like walking or heading to town by water, you can ride the free trolley that runs every 7 minutes to city dock. It is located at the Westin Hotel, three blocks from our house. The trolley is complimentary and runs until the wee hours of the morning for those night owls enjoying the very lively music and bar scene in Annapolis! Be sure to take in a show at Rams Head on Stage which is a five minute walk down west street and you will find world famous musicians who play nightly at the 250 seated venue.

We are a short 10 minute walk down West Street to the Naval Academy or walk 10 minutes down Taylor Ave and you will be at the the stadium. Getting married in Annapolis, we are the perfect location to house the family as we have plenty of space to accommodate everyone for some R&R before your big event. We are located three blocks away from the Aveda Varuna Day Spa and Salon which is the perfect location for all the wedding participants to enjoy the prep and pampering before the event!

The floor plan of the house includes open floor plan living with four finished levels. The setup of the home works very well for multi families as we have separate bedroom and living spaces on each floor setup for some getaway time for everyone! The top third level of the home has a queen sized bedroom suite with a granite kitchenette, full marble bath, family room with tv, workout area with a queen sleeper sofa, perfect for families traveling with children. The second floor includes a king sized master suite with travertine tiled multi head shower, heated stone floors and oversized jetted tub. The second floor also has two queen sized bedrooms with a full bath to share. The first floor offers a king sized bedroom and adjoining full bath perfect for those who do not want to do the stairs. The bedrooms are all outfitted with high thread count pristine linens and plenty of cozy plush white towels for your use. The house also has a whole house water filtration system, in the showers as well, and a whole house air filtration system for your good health and well being while staying here. The lower finished level has a large pottery barn sectional sofa with TV area, ping-pong, foosball and poker/bumper pool game tables and a half bath.

We do offer complimentary WIFI and have plenty of room for many cars to park on either side of our street in front of our house. As we are an in “town” location, parking is with permits only. We offer a custom bricked driveway that accommodates two cars and provide parking permits for two cars on our street in front of the house. More permits are easily obtained if you have more than four cars.

A wonderful part of renting a vacation home is gathering together with your loved ones and making special memories, a lot of which are centered around eating! You will enjoy preparing your meals in our gourmet oversized granite and custom cherry kitchen. We were featured in the Annapolis Historic Foundation’s kitchen tour of Annapolis and showcased in our local paper, the Capital Gazette's home section. Some special features of our kitchen include Le Creuset and All Clad cookware for your use and a turbo Vitamix blender for you to make those healthy smoothies before a day of adventures in town. We offer an oversized gas range with a double convection microwave oven wall unit. We have a 9 foot granite island which is great for food preparation and has barstools for grabbing a quick meal or cozy up to the built in banquette for relaxing breakfasts. We have every kitchen appliance at your disposal with a Breville/convection toaster oven, a capresso self grinding coffee maker and a keurig as well, kitchen-aid stand up mixer, two waffle makers, 6 quart slow cooker and two Cuisinart food processor for your use, enjoy it! We also have a large antique hemlock 12 foot extension table for those big family dinners that can accommodate up to 14. Or, take your dinner party outside for al fresco dining at our teak dining tables and chairs which seat up to 10 and with more casual chairs for up to 14.

PLEASE NOTE** We have a strict NO SHELLFISH POLICY on the premises, inside or outside. Owner has a severe anaphylactic allergy to shellfish and we cannot allow any on the premises. Thank you so much for your understanding and sensitivity to this issue.

We hope you would consider our downtown property for your next Annapolis visit. Many blessings and safe travels to all of you as you visit our fabulous vacation house in the sailing capital of the world!

Exceptional Home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our week stay in Annapolis. This expansive, well located home accommodated my entire family. It is well appointed with everything you will need, extremely clean and comfortable, and located near everything Annapolis has to offer (with ample parking that is not available in the historic district). Jennifer is a great host, all communication was prompt, and access information was timely and easy to follow. Highly recommend!

We absolutely loved the property. It was beautiful, charming and very well stocked. Plus, it was very conveniently located to downtown Annapolis - we were close to the Naval Academy and tons of wonderful shops and restaurants. The owners were super nice and very accommodating! We were greeted with fresh flowers and lots of brochures with information about the area. We loved this house and would highly recommend it! We fell in love with Annapolis and will definitely be back to visit. We plan to stay in this house again.

Annapolis, also known as the sailing capital of the world offers so much to see and do. Some of our favorites are The Naval Academy tour, power or sailboating, through our world class sail and boating schools, hop aboard the harbor cruise ship and head up the Severn and Chesapeake Bay from City Dock, rent a paddleboard and try it out three blocks from our house on Spa Creek, charter a boat for the day or explore the bay by kayak or rowboat - all available for you to use upon your rental of our house. We also have the Annapolis Maritime Museum, the Maryland State House tour, or visit the National Electronics and Cryptologic Museums, visit the Historic William Paca House and Gardens or visit the Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse. We are also centrally located between Washington DC and Baltimore. Washington DC offers some of the world's best museums in the National Gallery of Art, Air and Space Museum, Natural and American History Museums, or visit the Presidential Memorials, The National Cathedral, The National Basilica, The Library of Congress, and the Washington Capital and the Kennedy Center for the arts for theater performances are just to name of few sights to see there. The DC Metro station is located 15 miles at the New Carrollton stop which takes you directly into the heart of DC to explore all of these amazing sights. Baltimore offers numerous museums and outings as well. The Walters Art Museum, Camden Yards to see an Orioles game, Fort McHenry National Monument, the American Visionary Museum, The Historic Ships in Baltimore, Fell's Point, The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Museum, The Maryland Science Center and the National Aquarium are all some great options while visiting Baltimore. Last but not least, there is always going out for an afternoon of crabfeasting. But please don't bring any of those little guys home, our owner has a shellfish allergy! Many Thanks and Enjoy our great town!
