Overview

Murray Hill House Rental Photos and Description

3+BDR/2 Bath Downtown Annapolis Gem!

Absolutely Charming! Guests will feel right at home in this beautifully renovated 3+ bedroom/2 bath bungalow. Coastal cottage/Pottery Barn decor throughout; expansive gourmet kitchen facing a stunning backyard ideal for outdoor entertaining, crab feasts, morning coffee by the fountain or a glass a wine curled up by the fire pit at night. It's so tranquil its hard to believe you are only steps away from the heart of downtown!

Situated only three blocks off West Street in downtown Annapolis, this convenient location gives you instant access to sightseeing, shopping, restaurants and bars, boat cruises and Naval Academy activities. Enjoy the heated outdoor shower after a day of paddle boarding or kayaking on the Chesapeake. Spa Creek is only three blocks away giving you access to local water taxi service, or if you prefer, the city trolley which runs every 10 minutes at the end of the street. Its close proximity to St. Mary's, St. Anne's First Presbyterian, The Westin and the Naval Academy Chapel makes it ideal for wedding parties and guests.

The home sleeps 9 comfortably with an additional plush queen inflatable for a any overflow! Main floor has 2 bedrooms each with queen beds and a shared full bath & walk-in shower. Upstairs is a king size bed, a double bed nestled in the nook with a second bathroom with tub/shower. Since the master suite is an open area, guests must feel comfortable bunking in the same room. Room divider also available. The 'egg couch' in the upstairs solarium is also a very comfortable single bed alternative if required. For your convenience, WIFI, HBO, off-street parking and free passes for on-street parking for additional vehicles are all included with your stay. This home is ideal for family gatherings, girl's weekends, NAVY events, wedding parties/guests and/or couple's getaways.

Over the years this has been a pet friendly home and pets (dogs only) will be considered under special request for a nominal fee.

If you are visiting Annapolis for Commissioning Week, the Navy-Marine Corp Stadium is within walking distance. Many families in our community support midshipmen throughout their 4 years at the Academy and take part in Navy football in the Fall. Annapolis is also the perfect destination for the world famous Boat Show, Renaissance Festival or weekend getaways for city dwellers in Washington DC (35 minutes) and/or Baltimore (45 minutes).

Please click on the calendar link to check for availability. If your plans call for accommodations that are more than two years away, please feel free to contact me directly.

I will do my best to make your stay in Annapolis most comfortable. If you have questions about the area or need suggestions, let me know how I can assist. I guarantee you will want to make this home a repeat destination!

This home was selected for an episode of ABC's 'Sweet Retreats' and is a licensed rental property in the City of Annapolis.

What makes this house unique

I moved to Annapolis from Philadelphia almost 20 years ago. I was attracted to the quaintness of the town, the beauty of the Chesapeake and laid back lifestyle that made weekends feel like a constant vacation. My work life lends itself to frequent travel so it was important for me to create a home environment that was extremely peaceful and inviting. The entire second floor is the master bedroom suite, renovated to offer privacy and a feeling as if you were in a tree-house. Similarly, I wanted to bring the outdoor in with the inclusion of field stone throughout the kitchen and expansive windows/sliders giving easy access to the outdoors. Sitting in an Adirondack chair by the fountain is the perfect place to start your day. I've enjoyed creating this unique and beautiful space and hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Beautiful home with easy access to all things Annapolis

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautifully detailed home with plenty of space for three couples and flexibility to add a couple more guests as needed. The home is very well appointed to make the stay seamless, with plenty of spaces within the home to meet, chat, and relax. Interactions with Sandy, our host, were clear, timely and very professional, making this an easy weekend that impressed all of our guests and made for a really seamless weekend packed full of activities. The property's close proximity to all things Annapolis, but still within a quiet neighborhood was just the balance we were looking for.

Awesomely wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend this wonderful vacation rental. It had everything we needed which included a fabulous backyard for entertaining, close to the USNA stadium, The Westin & walkable distance to downtown & the Naval Acadrmy. The house was so spacious, comfortable & clean. Will certainly try & rent it again.

Beautiful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this house. It's beautifully decorated, nicely appointed, and the neighborhood is great. It's a short walk to shops, restaurants, and the waterfront. We also enjoyed the house so much we ended up spending time relaxing there, too. The owners were so helpful, providing suggestions for places to eat, where to rent kayaks, etc. They provided supplies that made our visit comfortable. And the neighbors even brought over freshly baked zucchini bread! I'd recommend this house, and would love to stay there again the next time I'm in the area.

Perfect girls' getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great property for our annual girls' getaway...college roommates...friends for close to 40 years.

The home is very clean, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. We loved the kitchen area where we spent lots of our time visiting.

The outside patio was also great for morning coffee.

Sandy could not have been more helpful, responding quickly to emails and offering lots of recommendations. Our security deposit was also returned quickly!

Would definitely recommend to others and hope to return!

Perfect for the family!

  • 5 of 5

Our short stay in Annapolis was made perfect by having this little retreat to call home. As a family we were able to reconnect with our Plebe in a relaxing setting with all the comforts of home--Plus we were close to USNA which allowed us to spend more time with family during parents weekend. We hope to have many more visits😄
