About this listing
Our home represents our life-style. House is eclectic in nature- lots of art and pictures. The deck is our favorite- serene space overlooking the city and water. Peaceful way to end your busy days!
Our home is located in Canton - about 3 blocks away from the water. We have a 4-story townhouse with a deck that overlooks the water, downtown Baltimore and the Johns Hopkins hospital. (email hidden) to spend an evening especially after a day of running around.
We have a basement that is ready to be used as your gym- including treadmill, eliptical, weight machine and a tv so you can work out to a movie and/or the news. Our first floor is a cozy livingroom which is open to you during your stay. There is also a nice sized kitchen that you can use to store food and cook any meals you would like. Our second floor will be all yours- there are 2 bedrooms with closets and tv's and 1 bathroom with a jetted tub and shower. You will either have the main bedroom to yourself with a shared bathroom if the other room is taken, or you can use both rooms - with the 2nd room being more of a den, where you can chill and read a book/watch tv or do yoga! The third floor is our floor and is private. Then of course, you have the deck which you can use at your leisure.
There is great space for you in our home; there is street parking for your car(s) and we also have a very loving and elderly golden retriever named Maggie (who is great with strangers, does not bark, and loves children). The photograph of Maggie was taken at a local restaurant, about 2 blocks away.
Our home is 1 block from Canton Square, the center of our neighborhood where you have a small park. Here you will find a wide variety of shops and restaurants, to include sushi/thai, seafood, Mexican and several with pub offerings and American Bistro. And for dessert - frozen yoghurt, gelatto and of course, Dangerously Delicious Pies - oh so very good!
The famed Baltimore Water Taxi has a stop just three blocks from our home, where you can go to Fells Point, Harbor East, Inner Harbor, Downtown, Federal Hill, Locust Point and Fort McHenry. There is also a beautiful waterfront walking path linking these neighborhoods that is perfect for walking, jogging or biking.
There are plenty of buses and taxi's right in our neighborhood if you do not have access to a car or do not want to walk. We are also a few miles off I-95 which is only about a 10-15 minute drive from BWI airport. We have maps and routes all ready for you. Our place really is in a great area as it is located next to all the main attractions of Baltimore City including the Convention Center, M&T Bank Stadium, and the Powerplant.
We look forward to having you with us and will be accessible for any questions/suggestions.
There are 2 entrances available for use- either through the living room or the kitchen. We have our own living room and space on the 3rd floor. The guests have the entire 2nd floor- which includes sleeping space, sitting space and a private bathroom. Also- the 1st floor living room and kitchen is available for use. Guests can also use the basement with work out equipment or use the deck.
Interaction with guests
We are readily available for any of your needs. We live on the 3rd floor and are available for any questions or concerns. We give you your own space for privacy but are willing to be more interactive depending on your needs.
The neighborhood is great. The restaurants and park are a block away from us. A few blocks south- you will be at the water and have access to the water taxi which will take you to Fells point, Inner Harbor, Fort McHenry and is a beautiful way to spend the day.

My husband and I are living in Canton- Baltimore, MD. I am a Registered Nurse and work at the Health Department in their TB/HIV division. My husband is in Sales and works in soil aggregates with a focus on green roofs. He is also in the Towsontowne Rotary Club- which has allowed us to host nationals from several countries and helped encourage our travels abroad. We spent 3 weeks in Nepal with his Rotary group after they had sponsored an ambulance to a local Nepalese hospital.
We both have a passion for traveling and spent our honeymoon un Africa- trekking in Rwanda with the mountain gorillas, touring through the Serengeti and chilled out after in Zanzibar. Between the 2 of us- we have been to all the continents- and are always looking forward to our next trip.
We were introduced to airbnb years ago and have taken advantage of it by traveling and staying with hosts and now hosting people in our home as well. We have met great people from all around the world and look forward to meeting you as well.
