Comfortable house and bedroom, very nice host who offered me Very warm accommodating. Thank you two again!
An amazing location and a comfy home. Everything was clean and the hosts, who were away for the weekend, had everything on autopilot: no need to get in touch re: anything. We were there in early February, so the garden was not in full bloom--from what we saw, the space was amazing. Going in, and having (website hidden) street-viewed the area, I was a bit weary. How wrong I was! This is a great side street tucked into an amazing neighborhood with great restaurants, bars, and entertainment venues in close proximity. Highly recommended.
Jennifer and Scott are a very nice couple with a fantastic place to stay at. They provided us with useful tips about the area (best seafood in my life), a very clean and cozy room in an absolutely beautiful home. Best place to stay in Baltimore!
Couldn't ask for a better first experience with airbnb!! Jen and Scott were such nice people! Their home was warm, very clean, beautifully decorated, and close to all the fun in fells point! Would highly recommend a stay in their home! Cant wait to come back! I recommend getting dinner at the Thames street oyster house! Amazing!!
Convenient location, lovely home, and nice room. Just as pictured. Was very easy to book and received email confirmation with details from host almost immediately. We had originally booked for one night, but decided to stay for 2 because we felt very comfortable. Would recommend to anyone else looking for a place in Baltimore that's near downtown, the harbor, and everything else.
Scott was educated in biomedical and chemical engineering and spent time doing basic science research before he moved his career into the arts where he has worked on a city wide street art project and now works at the Baltimore Museum of Art. He has lived in Baltimore over 10 years and knows it very well. He enjoys reading, mountain biking, and wine. He is always willing to engage in good conversation, particularly about philosophy and art.
Jenn worked in international relief and development for several years and traveled a lot during that time. She loves all aspects of food and cooking. Reality TV is a guilty pleasure, and she will gladly play Settler's of Catan with anyone who asks.
Jenn and Scott have been married over 5 years. They love their home and want to share it with others. Scott surprised Jenn in Beirut and then traveled to Istanbul to propose in front of the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. They recently spent 3 weeks together in south east Asia (Taiwan, Vietnam, Cambodia) Their richest travel experiences have been with local hosts who know the food and culture well. Their lives have been deeply enriched by these experiences.
