This was our favorite VRBO! The location was so good, that we parked our rental car and never moved it. Directly across the street from the USNA visitors entrance. Lots of great dining options in walking distance. We walked to the community theater for a play and even to Rams Head for a concert. The house was immaculate. Most places, even though they have been cleaned tend to have things over looked, like baseboards, etc. Not this place. It is well cared for both in cleanliness and in keeping things looking fresh and maintained. It is also decorated very tastefully and I appreciated all of the art and books. The sofa and beds are comfortable with high quality linens. We loved the patio! It was private and the perfect place to end our day with a glass of wine. The best part was the owner, John. He was very responsive and helpful before and during our stay. We travel often and usually there are things we like and things we aren't thrilled with in terms of where we stay. This was the whole package and we couldn't have made a better choice!

This was the BEST VRBO property my family and I have had opportunity to visit. I have two young daughters and cleanliness is extremely important to me when traveling- this property was spotless and organized. It felt much bigger than actual square footage- perfect for four adults and two very young children. The location is excellent, safe and close to shopping/restaurants. We live in Arlington VA and could plan for day trips to Annapolis but I was so thrilled with this property I hope to stay here again for all future mini vacations to Annapolis! The owner was very communicative and helpful- five stars! Jess and family

I understand that some reviews are lengthy and a bit dull, so I will keep this short, sweet, and HONEST!

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!! I had NO idea we would literally be directly across the street from USNA Entrance 1 (between the car entrance and the walking entrance). I could see over the Academy walls from my bedroom upstairs...not to mention the amazing PEOPLE WATCHING while sitting on the front steps!

THE HOME! Stunning!! The rooms were big, the claw-foot bathtub was my haven, the kitchen was ON POINT and the backyard was private and had all of the essentials..BBQ, patio furniture, a heater, and THE LIGHTS.....THE LIGHTS across the whole back patio are a truly perfect touch!

THE ROOMS: The master bedroom is fit for a King & Queen...HUGE! The pictures do not do it justice! There are 2 windows from which you can see over the Academy walls! The 2nd bedroom had an incredibly comfortable (I believe full size) bed...and the 3rd room has a futon couch.

DOWNSTAIRS: The front room is wonderful and also has a pull out sleeper sofa, an ample sized TV and a gorgeous fireplace...LOVE! There is "formal" dining room which we never used, because we were ALWAYS on the BACK PATIO w/ "party lights"...The KITCHEN is beautiful...Granite Counter-tops, S/S appliances, and a room with a Washer/Dryer(detergent provided!)

THE OWNERS and their ADORABLE PUP - By random chance, while we were killing time until check in, we were walking past the house and literally ran into the owners who were coming out of their 10 Randall Home...They are wonderful and COULD NOT be more HELPFUL, PERSONABLE AND ACCOMMODATING! We communicated mostly by text and he never took more that 2 minutes to respond! (We found the pencil drawing of their adorable pup in the Breakfast Nook adorable!)

THINGS TO DO: I was there for the last formal of the year, so that was awesome, KOSMO NAILS was perfect for mani /pedies! THE BIG CHEESE is a MUST!! Mango Pepper Jelly, Brie, Crackers, Meat Tray, and the Sheila B. Brownie Bites are a must!!

SUMMARY: John's tag line is ON POINT...."Best Location. Best PRICE. Across from the Academy"

If you are FORTUNATE ENOUGH to stay here, you will definitely agree that, as a realtor of 12 years, they could EASILY charge WAY MORE!!!

The only hiccup on this trip was that my soon to be son-in-law gave me a USNA issued sweatshirt...Since my husband is a USMA '86 grad...he had heartburn when I wore it on the flight home!! HEHE!
