About Anoa Gibson-Hunter, Claudia Gibson-Hunter

We're a close knit family of down home Washingtonians. The Kindred Moss Cottage has been our family's home-away-from-home for decades, and many of our most precious memories have been spent there. From days at the beach to fireplace marshmallow roasts to long bike rides around Highland Beach, Kindred Moss Cottage has been our favorite secret getaway destination. Together, we decided to quit hogging the place all to ourselves and let others enjoy our magical space. We all worked very hard to renovate Kindred Moss, and prepare for her debut. We know you'll love this home almost as much as we do!

Why Anoa Gibson-Hunter, Claudia Gibson-Hunter chose Maryland

Kindred Moss Cottage has been in our family for three generations. We have cared for this property with great pleasure, and have enjoyed many memories there. The cottage was my grandmother's favorite place in the whole world, and she always had such great taste. One thing she loved to do was to sit on the porch and put together 1000 piece puzzles while listening to the local Classical Music radio station. We're so happy to have been able to remodel the space because I know she would have wanted us to share it with you!

What makes this cottage unique

One of the best things about KMC is that it is a part of the Highland Beach community, which has its own security staff that protect the neighborhood. It gives the area added security, which we always enjoyed. Personally, I love the hardwood floors and open feel of the space. The original artwork also adds a nice touch. The cottage has new appliances, paint, beds, etc. but still holds on to a very classic, traditional feel.

Exceeded expectations. Exceptional beach cottage experience.

  • 5 of 5

Convenient location allowed us to enjoy Chesapeake Bay, USNA, and treks to nearby Washington DC and Eastern Shore. Unique historical enclave with warm and friendly neighbors. Thoughtful owners provided immaculate and comfortable space. Kindred Moss Cottage was fully stocked with all we needed and more. We truly felt at home.

The Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We chose the Kindred Moss Cottage for our annual women's retreat! It was the perfect spot for us to getaway and unwind. The house was very clean and had many amenities. We enjoyed all the extra touches- fresh linens, towels, beach towels, and hershey kisses! The neighbors were very friendly and sweet. We spent the day at the beach and we were surrounded by a beautiful atmosphere along with a friendly community. We also loved how close it was to downtown Annapolis...we were able to try out different places that were recommended to us from Claudia! Overall, we left feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and refreshed. Thank you for allowing us to experience a wonderful getaway with no worries or hassle!

Quaint beach cottage, but with modern amenities

  • 5 of 5

The property is so well taken care of and the location was perfect! We were easily able to uber into the city center if we wanted, but enjoyed the quiet and relaxed atmosphere of the neighborhood. The beach and playground were just a short walk away. Claudia was so wonderful and checked in with us to make sure we had gotten settled and didn't need anything. Would highly recommend!!

Great house and wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

The property was excellent. The kitchen was well stocked, Claudia was VERY prompt at returning my emails/messages when I needed anything and very courteous to make sure we didn't have any issues with checking in or checking out. Cute, safe neighborhood and easy to get to downtown via car/uber. Would definitely recommend for a getaway.
