Lisa and John have a beautiful home, and it is the perfect location. They provide so many "extras"! She checked on us daily to make sure we needed nothing. We will be back!

Absolutely Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Annapolis and this property. There is not one thing we would change about our visit. Excellent location! -- walking distance to restaurants and shops, and across the street from the USNA. The apartment was very clean, nicely stocked with supplies, and superbly decorated. John and Lisa welcomed us with goodies and a notebook full of information for sightseeing and tours, etc. They were only a text, phone call, or knock away, if needed. The apartment is so comfortable -- it feels like home away from home. We will definitely return!

Absolutely beautiful accommodations - you will instantly feel at home. Our host was great with communication, lots of details on arriving, parking, getting comfortable with our stay.

Fantastic location, welcoming hosts, really nice property

  • 5 of 5

We (4 of us) had a great time at Circa 1885. Lisa and John couldn't have made us feel more welcome; a bottle of wine and a loaf of banana bread were waiting for us when we got there. Lisa was quick to respond when we had questions or needed anything. Apartment is very comfortable, nicely furnished and decorated with lots of attention paid to detail. Property is conveniently close to everything (naval academy, bay, restaurants, shops, entertainment, tours, etc.). Annapolis is charming; you can park the car and walk everywhere. We'd definitely stay at Circa 1885 again when in town.
