Excerpt from the official Little Italy website:

'This charming, cozy neighborhood located in the heart of downtown Baltimore is an important cultural and ethnic icon for the city. Nestled between the Inner Harbor and historic Fells Point, millions of people annually visit Little Italy to dine at its almost 30 restaurants, watch outdoor movies, participate in bocce tournaments, attend Italian festivals, worship at its Italian parish, partake in Italian language and cultural classes, attend ravioli dinners, go to the Sons of Italy lodge, or simply stroll through the friendly narrow streets to experience a bit of the sapore and ambiente of the old country, Italia.

Located near other quaint Baltimore neighborhoods like Canton, Federal Hill, Fells Point and Harbor East, Little Italy is reachable by car, water taxi, subway, and just a short walk from the Inner Harbor.'


Taxi & bus service are only steps away. You can also can catch the water taxi at the National Aquarium only 2 blocks away--the water taxi stops at Baltimore's most popular attractions! (You can buy fix online ahead of time, or buy them right on the boat with cash per person for an all day pass.)

About Susan Colwell

Well, here's a little about me. . . .I'm married to the best guy on the planet-Cerphe (pronounced Surf) and we have a feline child-Poncey. I'm a real estate investor and with my fantastic partners, I'm buying and renovating amazing properties in Baltimore. I also host a travel show on Music Planet Radio called TravelGal. (Please check it out!) :-)

I love to stay in Home Away and VRBO properties when I travel and I take great care in making our properties cozy, charming and lovely to be in. I also try to think of everything I'd want to make my stay enjoyable and then I include it for our guests!

Susan Colwell purchased this house in 2014

Why Susan Colwell chose Baltimore

In 2013, two very dear friends of mine and I fell in love with an enchanting row house in Baltimore's Little Italy. I daydreamed about it, walked around the neighborhood and discovered wonderful Italian restaurants, an amazing bakery, the cutest wine bar ever, the waterfront promenade and on and on! Each time I turned a corner there was more. Then!!!! Just when I thought it couldn't get any better--I discovered a Starbucks, Whole Foods, movie theater and incredible shopping along the Inner Harbor only two blocks away!

So my dear friends and I bought that cutie-pie house and turned it into an elegant corporate and family retreat /super-cool pied a terre (Little Italy Charmer). A year later, this home came on the market and we knew we had to have it, too--So Little Italy Charmer, Too! was born.

This is such a WONDERFUL area of Baltimore. It's like stepping back in time. The neighborhood is charming, safe and lovely— chock full of wonderful Italian restaurants, even a cozy little wine bar and popular bakery. There are tons of festivals and events in this neighborhood and in the summer time, they even play an outdoor movie (Friday nights) and all the neighbors bring their lawn chairs. It's just magical.

What makes this house unique

Like Little Italy Charmer-two doors down--this property was built in 1850 and is so charming and cozy that it makes you want to burrow in, read a book or watch movies and unwind. But with all the shopping, dining and the Inner Harbor only steps away, the city draws you out. I also paid close attention to the comfort of the beds and house amenities like coffee, tea, sugar, hand soap, etc. All the little extras that make a home away from home feel functional and homey. I hope you enjoy what we've done!

Wonderful Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Our research lab stayed here for a conference, and it could not have been better. The location is perfectly placed between Little Italy and the harbor. Walking distance to so many bars and restaurants as well as a Whole Foods and CVS right around the corner. We ended up with 6 total sharing the space, but easily could have fit more people comfortably. The decor was lovely. Very clean and update with plenty of bathrooms. The outdoor space is great, and we were able to host a dinner party for some colleagues. Our conference is in Baltimore every 2 years, and we'll definitely book this location again!

Great deal, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect, with the harbour front and dozens of little restaurants within minutes of the house. It had a well-equipped kitchen, and the beds were comfortable. For the price per bed, it was a very good deal. Only two small suggestions: while it seemed clean enough, it had been a long time since anyone vacuumed under the sofa cushions--which could be a real issue if guests have allergies. Similarly, the downstairs had a bit of a musty smell.

Great Location & House

  • 5 of 5

All the details and pictures listed are spot on.We were in town for a family wedding and we were able to sleep 9 comfortably. The house is big, clean and the outdoor area is plenty, although it was cold when we were there. The location could not have been any better. You are a 5 min walk to the Aquarium and the Inner Harbor with many choices of dinning out. There is even a Whole Foods, CVS & Starbucks 1 block behind the property which made it convenient to pick up supplies, since we were staying for a whole week. Susan/Marcia could not have been more attentive and responsive during our stay. This was my first time using Home Away and they both made the process very easy.

Love this Little Italy gem!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous house to rent! The location, just a couple of blocks from the harbor, is a perfect place to perch for a visit to Baltimore. The house is beautifully renovated, with lots of space for people to spread out. There is a ground floor patio off the dining room/ kitchen. There is also a lovely roof deck off the top floor bedroom. If people need a break, the bedrooms are super comfy and a good place to hang out. Around the corner from the house is a Whole Foods and a Starbucks. Cafe Gia across the street is a lovely Italian restaurant! Fells Point is a 10 minute car ride, as is the Visionary Arts Museum. The water taxi is a short 3 block walk from the house! I will totally be renting this house again!

Great Property-GreatLocation!

  • 5 of 5

The description is spot on. Great restaurant right across the street. An easy walk to the Inner Harbor. The property is beautiful, clean and fully renovated. The owners descriptions, parking and restaurant recommendations, directions to nearby amenities - everything - are very accurate. One of the best property summaries I have ever seen.
