I typically respond to all email inquiries within a few hours. I do not use vrbo/homeaways internal mail system, thus the response time and rate they have posted is totally inaccurate.
Monthly stays quoted on individual basis.
All rates are based on length of stay, number of guests, time of year, special events, etc etc. Typically 3 Night minimum, but will consider 2 nights depending on time of year and existing bookings. Please do not contact me with requests for 1 night bookings.
625 S. Paca St.
Baltimore MD 21230
NOTE: I have 2 properties that are vacation rentals, 625 and 627 S. Paca St. They are side by side, and they are both advertised on VRBO/homeaway
I have a private website that has a lot more info and details about my properties and logistics. There is a link for it somewhere on these adds, but they keep moving them around and its often hard to find. They don't like us posting it in this section, but I will send out my website link with all inquiry responses.
I have visitor books in my homes where people leave their comments. Prior to 2014 it was easy for me to enter those on my personal website and in these adds, but I've come to recognized that people prefer guest entered comments and the ratings systems also now seem to be tied to user entered comments more so than in the past. In 3/2014 I sent emails to many 2013 guests asking them to directly enter reviews, thus a bulk of reviews entered in 3/2014. Moving forward, I will be soliciting reviews from prior guests monthly or quarterly.
I advertise thru many channels, and while I try to keep this calendar up to date, there is an occasional lag. I recieve availability emails on my smart phone and typically respond within a few hours (and I'll respond even if I dont have availability)....
--NATURE OF GUESTS--
In general, I have enjoyable experiences working with and pleasing families and business travelers. I also use to have good success with large 'groups of friends', but my inquiries in that category have risen a lot in the 2013-14 timeframe, and so have some of the issues, headaches and heartache. These groups are often in for 2-3 night stays for things such as concerts, sporting events, birthday parties, reunions, bachelor and bachelorette parties. The groups of friends I have experienced the most hiccups with are often self categorized as 'professionals in their 20s-40s', so while that is important info, please understand it does not, by itself, make me feel 'comfortable' with a large group. If you are going to be the responsible party for a large group of friends, PLEASE think about each of your companions and make sure you don't have anyone in your group that naturally attracts problems or trouble. If you do, please consider a hotel over my home or that of others, as problematic issues can affect a landlords entire business if it involves neighbors or neighborhood issues. If you, as the organizer, are comfortable with your group, i probably will be to. Please provide some details about your group and your comfort with this info with your inquiry, and realize that I may request linked-in and/or facebook profiles or other public profiles that can help me feel more comfortable with you and your group.

Beautifully rehabbed 160 year old Row Home on one of the most beautiful blocks in Baltimore. The front features a street full of Bradford Pear Trees, best seen in early spring....out back you'll a quaint yard shared between this property and 627 S. Paca St and there is also a large 1 car garage on the rear of the property. There is a small 2nd floor rear deck off the kitchen (which is on the 2nd floor) with views of Camden Yards, Raven’s Stadium, and our great neighborhood park. There is also a third floor deck with the same views along with a little of the local skyline. .....On the inside you'll find 2400 sf of contemporary loft style living....be sure to click on link at the bottom of the page to see many more photos!!
When I come back to Baltimore on occasion, this is the home I stay in…..I enjoy sharing my home and Baltimore with folks from around the world...Children are most welcome but please look at the photos to decide if you're comfortable having them run around this house....Quiet, responsible drinkers and non-drinkers are welcome and smokers are welcome (but ALL smoking must be done outside with butts disposed of appropriately)....Drugs in any form are not welcome....
As for parking, there is a large garage that accomodates 1 vehicle less than 20' long......Other than that, this is a permit only neighborhood....although parking enforcement is not typically too bad if there are no ballgames, but a guaranteed ticket on game days.....I do have a visitors permit that may be used for a second vehicle, but you'll have to sign over your first born if anything happens to it!!! It's like gold, and once lost, it can't be replaced until next year!!!
Drop me a line with any questions!!
PS - I DO NOT POST ADDS ON CRAIGSLIST. IF YOU SEE MY PICTURES IN ADDS ON CRAIGSLIST, IT'S A SCAM - Be very careful with Craigs List and vacation rentals, many of the postings are scams.
