--RESPONSE RATE--

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.

-- PLEASE IGNORE ANY AUTO GENERATED QUOTES -- I will provide you with a detailed quote --

Please ignore any “Instant Quote” or automated quote presented by this website.

VRBO/Homeaway is trying to morph from an advertising website which connected home owners to travelers to a Booking Company and they have forced all of use to do things that have utterly confused everyone. I still handle all my own quotes and the entire booking process personally as I have since 2005. You will be contracting with me not VRBO/Homeaway.

When you click “Request to Book” or the “contact me / send a message link(s)”, 1) you will provide your trip details 2) I will be sent that info via email and 3) I will reply to you personally with an detailed quote and a link to my personal website which is filled with more information.

3 nights -- $250-400/night (based on occupancy, events and timing)

4-6 nights -- $250-350/night (based on occupancy, events and timing)

--PROPERTY ADDRESS--

627 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

--PERSONAL WEBSITE--

I have a private website that has a lot more info and details about my properties and logistics. There is a link for it in the OWNER INFO SECTION. -- The link reads -- MY PERSONAL WEBSITE W/ INFO @ 625 and 627 S. PACA ST (If you have problems finding it I do send out my website link with all inquiry responses.)

-- FAMILIES, BUSINESS TRAVELERS, GROUPS OF FRIENDS--

I generally have very enjoyable experiences working with and pleasing families and business travelers. I use to have very consistent, good success with large 'groups of friends', but my inquiries in that category have risen a lot since 2014 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 of friends. 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 landlord’s entire business if it involves neighbors or neighborhood issues. If you are reserving for a Group of Friends, please provide some details about your group and your comfort with this info with your inquiry. (I may request linked-in and/or facebook profiles that can help me feel more comfortable with you and your group.)

--PROPERTY INFO--

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!!

Regards

Bryan

About The Owner

I lived in this home from 2003 through 2005 and then Holly joined me and we moved next door and turned this into a vacation rental. I am self employed (real estate and other things) and Holly has PhD in Aquatic Ecology. Holly got a wonderful opportunity to work in Monterey Bay CA in 2012, so we've relocated! I still return to Baltimore regularly for work.

Be sure to check out our reviews, and drop us a line with any questions!

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2004

Why The Owner chose Baltimore

Location, Location, Location....Just footsteps to Camden Yards, the convention center and in the inner harbor!

What makes this townhome unique

The home next door to this one is also a VRBO rental, so I can typically accomodate 18-20 people between the 2 homes, and there are several homes owned by others within 2 blocks that I can refer you two if your group requires more than 1 home and I can not accomodate.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was beautiful! the ladies thought we were staying in an MTV house and had an amazing time! Thanks for the communication and prompt attention to our emails. Thanks for opening up your home and giving us a great first trip to Baltimore!

Lovely spacious home, close to inner harbor and more...

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay in this home. It was more than we expected. Very spacious, the decor is lovely and there were special amenities that you wouldn't get at a hotel, i.e. books, games, kitchen, washer & dryer, practical recommendations of where to go while in Baltimore, etc. We were close to everything we wanted to see while visiting -Inner Harbor, Camden Yards, museums, etc. My favorite places were the basement bedroom area and the 2nd floor bathroom. You have to see it to know what I mean. I highly recommend this rental if you are planning to visit the Baltimore area.

Gorgeous home, close to the action

  • 5 of 5

This row house is utterly lovely. Everything was in top-notch condition, from the bed linens to the gas range to the astoundingly luxurious bathroom. I stayed there with eight friends for Memorial Day weekend and it never felt crowded. The house is practically across the street from Camden Yards and is only a fifteen minute walk from the waterfront district, which makes it a perfect home base in an area where parking is hard to come by.

One word of warning: because this is a row house, expect to use the stairs a lot. There is no restroom on the ground floor, and both the front and rear entrances have steps. If members of your party have mobility issues, this may be a problem.

My friends and I had a fantastic time here, and Bryan was a very helpful and responsive landlord. I look forward to staying here again the next time I'm in Baltimore.

Business Travel

  • 5 of 5

Our party of three could not have asked for a better rental home. 627 Paca Street was beautiful and meticulously kept. The home was laid out perfectly, allowing for the one female in our group to have her own private sleeping area with her own private bathroom. The décor and furnishings throughout the home were something straight out of Better Homes. Our conference was held at the Baltimore Convention Center and if it were not for several things to take with us each morning, we could have walked to the center in less than 10 minutes. The home is centrally located and only a few blocks from the Orioles and Ravens stadiums, and all the downtown and Inner Harbor action. I will definitely consider staying here again. Bryan made our entire party feel very welcomed and I thank him for sharing his beautiful home with us.

Great location, very cool digs

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed in Bryan's place with a handful of friends and it was perfect. The house was spotless and had all the amenities one could want. And the house itself is really cool and interesting -- Bryan did a wonderful job in renovating the 3-story house. The location couldn't have been better, as it was a stone's throw from Camden Yards and the Raven's Stadium (and the relatively new Horseshoe Casino for those so inclined), as well as the Inner Harbor, Federal Hill and associated restaurants and such. Additionally, communication with Bryan was fast and easy, and his detailed instructions regarding directions, local amenities, and the check in/check out process were crystal clear. The next time we consider staying in Baltimore, I and the others in the group will definitely check to see if Bryan's house is available.

AWESOME

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, clean and a great location.

I only wish there was a little bit more of the things that make a home, tinfoil, plastic bags and condiments etc.....

Paca Palace

  • 5 of 5

Bryan's place in Baltimore is just fantastic. We were a couple of actors on tour with The Phantom of the Opera playing the Hippodrome Theater for two weeks and we had a great time. The location was perfect. Very short, safe walk to the theater past Babe Ruth's museum/birthplace and the University of Maryland. Lots of University security on the streets which was a bonus. The house is close to everything. The Inner Harbor, Federal Hill, both sports stadiums, and the top notch new Horseshoe Casino. We had lots of fun there! The house itself is very very cool. A terrific modern design. Fun to stay in a place like that. I highly recommend Bryan's place and would to come back for a visit to do all the fun stuff Baltimore has to offer.
