Ultra Luxury 1st floor, 2 Bedroom 2 Bath Condo In Charles Village/Baltimore

Located in a 4 Story Victorian 4 condo Home. This Unit has 2 Bedrooms 2 Bath + Luxury custom made sleeper sofa, Sleeps 6 is located in Charles Village (Not in Abell Baltimore at all - we are 100% located in Charles Village), a diverse, lively (and award-winning) neighborhood adjoining the main campus of Johns Hopkins University. The house is less than three blocks from John Hopkins Campus and less than one block from Union Memorial Hospital and is only minutes from Penn Station where commuter trains depart hourly for Washington D.C. (in fact, many residents commute to work in Washington DC). The main corridor of Amtrak also runs through this station providing easy access to Philadelphia, New York City, Boston, to name a few northeasterly points.

Our Neighborhood - Charles Village: With its funky shops and trendy restaurants, bars and award winning Saturday open air flea market/taste of maryland goodies fresh as can be, Charles Village is one of the hippest neighborhoods in Baltimore. Its cosmopolitan air draws visitors both young and old. Once a neighborhood of old money and the nouveau riche, Charles Village today is home to artists, intellectuals/students, young and seasoned medical professionals. The neighborhood's turn-of-the-century mansions and Brownstones, formerly home to prominent families, today house art museums, restaurants and niche shops.

This ultra luxury Charles Village condo comes with fully equipped gourmet kitchen, with stainless steel appliance, granite floors and counter's. Also includes luxury granite bathroom with Jacuzzi soaking tub, heated towel rack and more. The luxurious living room includes a large screen HD cable TV with DVD player. Private off-street parking available. Free high speed wireless internet connection and cable with 1000's of free movies are included for your convenience. This Condo is situated in the heart of Charles Village on a quiet tree-lined street centrally located downtown in one of Baltimore's best neighborhoods. Walk less than four blocks east west or north to enjoy unique shopping and countless restaurants.

The house/condo is perfect for a family coming to Baltimore for the academic year or a couple looking for an upscale getaway.

Why the Owner chose Baltimore: Originally, the house was purchased as a home by a great friend of ours to enjoy while he finished his residence less than a block away. Why we chose this as a business/getaway home is -well frankly- 'its location is ideal for folks, like us, who like a city with proud civic institutions--great universities, hospitals and medical schools, libraries, symphony and chamber orchestras, a zoo and museums in addition to our wonderful Inner Harbor with innumerable activities, restaurants, water taxis and cruises and so much history (including a lighthouse, the USS Constellation and Chesapeake Lightship). And so on!'

'The Unique Benefits at this Townhome: We enjoy concerts at the Meyerhoff, theater at Center Stage and Everyman's Theater, the Maryland Zoo, the Maryland Science Center, Fells point, the Inner Harbor, the Charles Village Festival, the proximity not only of Hopkins but also Loyola University, the College of Notre Dame, Goucher College--all within very easy access. In addition, there are festivals too numerous to mention and concert and lecture series at all the universities.' Both of these quotes are from another local Homeaway owner whom sentiments match ours in so many way's. Any questions or concerns please call or email us.

Please Note we have a very strict 'NO SMOKING POLICY' You forfeit your deposit and will be billed for any and all smoking damage...

Easy to get to. Rather cramped layout. Bedding is a bit worn.

Fantastic experience in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 professionals (all male) in town for a conference at the Convention Centre in Baltimore. We rented the main floor and second floor units for 4 bedrooms total. They are beautifully renovated units in a row of old town houses. The neighborhood to the west was fantastic. Great restaurants and pubs and the beautiful campus of Johns Hopkins. The units themselves were large and clean. The only thing we couldn't find was a tea kettle, but got by with boiling water in a pot on the stove. Very minor issue indeed! Nice bottles of red and white wine in each unit, plenty of instructions, and tons of space. We only used the units for sleeping and breakfast, but would have been fine for regular meals.

The other nice part was the proximity/cost of Uber transportation to and from the convention centre and downtown. Although we brought our vehicle from Canada (and there was permit parking right out front included in the rental), we took Uber to and from our meeting. It was a 20 minute or less ride, always arrived within about 5 minutes to the town house, and was less than $9.00 with tip each time! I would recommend this to anyone...professionals, families, etc. We would definitely rent this property again, recommend it to others (we already have) and rent other properties managed by these wonderful owners!

Owner's Response: Jeff, Thanks for the great review. We appreciate your kind words. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Sorry we couldn't turn off the downpour that hit during your stay:-) We are glad you mentioned the Uber as this is such a great way to get around town. Please let us know when we can be of service again. Peggy and Alan

Great unit - noisy neighbors

  • 4 of 5

The unit was very comfortable and well equipped with great quality linens and kitchen supplies - probably one of the best units I've stayed in with VRBO, from that respect. Since the unit is near John's Hopkins, perhaps I should have expected this, but the neighbors had very loud parties on Friday and Saturday nights, making it difficult to sleep.

Great place. We felt we got to really experience Baltimore. We loved having the front porch. It added another space Owners were very responsive to needs. The only thing needed would be a full length mirror. We were getting ready to go to a wedding👍𣐽𣑍👍𣐽𣑍

Great Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Three of us stayed for 5 nights while in town for a trade show, and we had an excellent stay. The place is extremely clean and comfortable, has all of the necessities one could want in the kitchen along with a pantry with a few basic items, the Charles Village neighborhood is a great home-base and felt quite safe, and the owners are responsive and very helpful. We're coming back next year. A solid five stars no question!!!!
