Excellent bay retreat
We rented this property as a family getaway for an extended Fourth of July weekend. The house is delightful; large and well appointed and perfect for a family. Communication with host was stellar, and we couldn’t have asked for a better holiday location. We hope to be back!
Commissioning Week 2019
I cannot have dreamed of a better home to host our family and friends. I thoroughly enjoyed cooking every meal in the beautiful well appointed kitchen while Alexa played our favorite music. We used the outdoor grill, the wolf double oven and 6 burner stovetop. The refrigerator was huge. Additionally, there were 2 large cooler drawers for beverages. The home has plenty of beautiful dishes, silverware, wine glasses and decorative platters. We ate most meals outside at the beautiful teak table for 8. Some relatives ate in but still had all the windows to enjoy the gardens. Roses were in full bloom. My mornings began with a 2.5 run or walk around the lovely neighborhood along the water. Then I would enjoy coffee in peace off my master bedroom with water views. Sunrise and sunset were both enjoyed there too. The showers were awesome and I loved the cast iron claw foot tub after kayaking. The bed linens, pillows and mattresses were excellent. This host has provided everything that we could need to be comfortable. She was kind and professional every step of the way. This home was a splurge for us but worth every penny.
Beautiful Well Maintained Home
Our family rented the home for the Air Force/Navy football game weekend and was thoroughly impressed with the house. It was well maintained, large, and in a beautiful neighborhood. The best part was waking up in the morning and taking a stroll along the bay. I highly recommend the property. You won't be disappointed.
We were so pleased with this lovely rental in Bayridge! The home was extremely clean, comfortable and afforded everyone lots of privacy and space. Our favorite gathering place was the charming sun-room and outdoor patio with bay view. The dream kitchen has everything you could ever desire and the bathrooms were so luxurious.
The owner was was gracious and accommodating---we can't wait to return!

Perfect for our commissioning week
From the moment we arrived at 4 Sands Anenue for Commissioning week, we started feeling like we were actually on vacation. All the stress of preparations melted away. The very first evening when our soon to be commissioned son and I sat out on the patio enjoying a quiet moment while the light faded over the water, he said, Mom I can't imagine a better place to celebrate this week.
The home is so lovely and the Bay Ridge community is idealic. The property has been meticulously updated inside and out. The furnishings are beautiful and the decor is fun and artistic. The spaces offer flexibility for entertaining and sleeping. The master suite is large with a separate sitting area, ensuite bath with tub and shower. French doors from this space open to a second level screened porch with beautiful sweeping views of the water. It's an inviting place for morning coffee or a glass of wine at sunset. It's truly a sanctuary. Another large bedroom w ensuite complete the upper level. A first floor bedroom with easy access to a full bath provided the perfect accommodations for my elderly father. There is also a den on the first level w a sleeper sofa that offers additional guest space or a quiet reading area.
The eat in kitchen with large island is gourmet appointed. We had such a great time making family meals that we ended up never going out to eat. For our catered "after" party, the kitchen was separate enough for food set up and prep that it was out of the fray of the entertaining spaces. The living room, dining room and sun room all open to each other and best of all, flow right outside to a garden style area that is perfect for dining al fresco and yard games.
The Bay Ridge Community is the perfect location for peaceful walks or bike rides. A little beach area is very close by and the owners provided kayaks and beach chairs for our use. Bay Ridge is still just a 10 minute drive to the historic district and the Yard. Our son was really happy we chose a more relaxing location from DTA.
Our family had the most wonderful stay at 4 Sands Avenue, it was truly magical for us and I highly recommend it.
Commissioning Week 2017
USNA Commissioning Week 2016
This home provided a wonderful place for our family during the busy week of Commissioning Week. For us, the location of the home provided a respite from the chaos of downtown Annapolis and the size of the home allowed us to spread out more than most homes in the downtown area. Our Mid especially enjoyed the location away from the responsibilities on the Yard and did not mind the short commute to USNA for activities. The proximity of the Chesapeake Bay gave us peaceful views at all times of the day as well as a beautiful place to take walks as a family. The home itself was decorator furnished with quality furniture, linens, and kitchen items. The lawn out front of the home made a perfect place to entertain guests as the peonies and other flowers were in full bloom. Each bedroom having its own bath provided private areas for each family member. The pull out sofa in the den was a coveted sleeping area as it was as comfortable as a regular bed. The owner was gracious and easy to work with. Whether on vacation in Annapolis or visiting your Mid at USNA, this home provides comfort, beauty, and convenience.
Only 5 minutes to downtown Annapolis and the Naval Academy.
Enjoy all of the history and dining that Annapolis has to offer, by land or sea.
