--RESPONSE RATE--

I typically respond to all email inquiries within a few hours. I do not use vrbo/homeaways internal mail system, thus the response time and rate they have posted is totally inaccurate.

-- PLEASE IGNORE ANY AUTO GENERATED QUOTES --

I will provide you with a detailed quote -- Please ignore any “Instant Quote” or automated quote presented by this website.

Around 2015 VRBO/Homeaway started morphing from an advertising portal to connect property owners to tenants into a an advertising portal with an optional booking service, and this transition has created a lot of confusion. I don't pariticipate in their optional booking service. I still handle all my own quotes and the entire booking process personally as I have since 2005. You will be contracting with me not VRBO/Homeaway.

When you click “Request to Book” or the “contact me" or the "send a message" buttons or links, 1) you will provide your trip details 2) I will be sent that info via email and 3) I will reply to you personally with a detailed quote and a link to my personal website which is filled with more information.

-- GENERAL PRICING GUIDE --

Below is a general pricing guide. I quote all stays based on number of nights, occupancy, events and timing.

2 nights -- $275-450/night (based on occupancy, events and timing)

3 nights -- $250-400/night (based on occupancy, events and timing)

4-6 nights -- $250-350/night (based on occupancy, events and timing)

7 nights -- $250-275/night (that is 1750+/week based on occupancy, events and timing)

> 7 nights is a custom quote

-- a few exceptions to above pricing apply

-- 2 or 3 NIGHT MINIMUM --

Typically 3 Night minimum, but will consider 2 nights depending on time of year and existing bookings.

--PROPERTY ADDRESS--

627 S. Paca St.

Baltimore MD 21230

NOTE: I have 2 properties that are vacation rentals, 625 and 627 S. Paca St. They are side by side, and they are both advertised on VRBO/homeaway

--PERSONAL WEBSITE--

I have a private website that has a lot more info and details about my properties and logistics. There is a link for it in the OWNER INFO SECTION. -- The link reads -- MY PERSONAL WEBSITE W/ INFO @ 625 and 627 S. PACA ST (If you have problems finding it I do send out my website link with all inquiry responses.)

-- FAMILIES, BUSINESS TRAVELERS, GROUPS OF FRIENDS--

I generally have very enjoyable experiences working with and pleasing families and business travelers. I use to have very consistent, good success with large 'groups of friends', but my inquiries in that category have risen a lot since 2014 and so have some of the issues, headaches and heartache. These groups are often in for 2-3 night stays for things such as concerts, sporting events, birthday parties, reunions, bachelor and bachelorette parties. The groups of friends I have experienced the most hiccups with are often self categorized as 'professionals in their 20s-40s', so while that is important info, please understand it does not, by itself, make me feel 'comfortable' with a large group of friends. If you are going to be the responsible party for a large group of friends, PLEASE think about each of your companions and make sure you don't have anyone in your group that naturally attracts problems or trouble. If you do, please consider a hotel over my home or that of others, as problematic issues can affect a landlord’s entire business if it involves neighbors or neighborhood issues. If you are reserving for a Group of Friends, please provide some details about your group and your comfort with this info with your inquiry. (I may request linked-in and/or facebook profiles that can help me feel more comfortable with you and your group.)

--PROPERTY INFO--

Beautifully rehabbed 160 year old Row Home on one of the most beautiful blocks in Baltimore. The front features a street full of Bradford Pear Trees, best seen in early spring....out back you'll a quaint yard shared between this property and 627 S. Paca St and there is also a large 1 car garage on the rear of the property. There is a small 2nd floor rear deck off the kitchen (which is on the 2nd floor) with views of Camden Yards, Raven’s Stadium, and our great neighborhood park. There is also a third floor deck with the same views along with a little of the local skyline. .....On the inside you'll find 2400 sf of contemporary loft style living....be sure to click on link at the bottom of the page to see many more photos!!

When I come back to Baltimore on occasion, this is the home I stay in…..I enjoy sharing my home and Baltimore with folks from around the world...Children are most welcome but please look at the photos to decide if you're comfortable having them run around this house....Quiet, responsible drinkers and non-drinkers are welcome and smokers are welcome (but ALL smoking must be done outside with butts disposed of appropriately)....Drugs in any form are not welcome....

As for parking, there is a large garage that accomodates 1 vehicle less than 20' long......Other than that, this is a permit only neighborhood....although parking enforcement is not typically too bad if there are no ballgames, but a guaranteed ticket on game days.....I do have a visitors permit that may be used for a second vehicle, but you'll have to sign over your first born if anything happens to it!!! It's like gold, and once lost, it can't be replaced until next year!!!

Drop me a line with any questions!!

Regards

Bryan

About The Owner

I lived in this home from 2003 through 2005 and then Holly joined me and we moved next door and turned this into a vacation rental. I am self employed (real estate and other things) and Holly has PhD in Aquatic Ecology. Holly got a wonderful opportunity to work in Monterey Bay CA in 2012, so we've relocated! I still return to Baltimore regularly for work.

Be sure to check out our reviews, and drop us a line with any questions!

Great stay! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

I had a great stay at 627 s. Paca. The place was beautiful and in a great location. All of the major attractions were within walking distance or a short Uber ride away.

The property was stocked with plenty of towels, linens, blankets, and pillows for everyone in my group. In addition, Bryan was very easy to communicate with and was very helpful throughout the entire process.

I highly recommend this property for you and your group when visiting Baltimore. Especially if you plan on visiting Camden Yards for a game.

Wonderful House! Wonderful Location!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you will need for your stay, even parking. A big plus for any city. We felt at home as soon as we entered! Very well appointed, and tastefully decorated. We were able to walk to baseball games, restaurants, and Inner Harbor. Owner was great to work with. We would definitely stay here again, and would highly recommend.

Great place close to fun things to do!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a few Oriole games. Very convenient to the ballpark and close to Inner Harbor. Plenty of space and it looks really cool with the floor grates and lighting! I would definitely recommend this property! Plus, there is a parking spot in the back - awesome! The owner was very easy to communicate with. 5 stars all the way!

Awesome vacation home

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay . The house was very clean with more than enough space for 6 adults. Huge bathroom with a nice soaker tub and walk in shower in the main bathroom. Nice full bathroom in the downstairs bedroom and a1/2 bathroom in the top bedroom. Because of the vents in the floors, noise did travel throughout the house but since we were family not a big deal for us. Nice neighborhood felt very safe. Just about a 5 minute walk to Camden Yard for the baseball games and that was because we had to wait for the light to cross the road. Easy walking distance to the inner harbor which was also a fun place to go. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Bryan is easy to work with and answers any questions very quickly Anyone who wants to go to Baltimore should definitely consider this place

Loyola grad long weekend rental

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this property for our daughter's Loyola graduation. It was perfect for the 10 of us........ my and my brother-in-law's family with "kids" ranging in age from 12-32! The home was immaculate and Bryan provided not only spot on directions to the property, but also extremely detailed and accurate directions to grocery stores as well as a book full of recommendations for restaurants and places to see. All instructions for getting into the house, parking, operating appliances, trash and check out were provided via e-mail prior to arrival and also posted in the house. Bryan always responded quickly to the few questions that I e-mailed him about. The beds and futons were very comfortable. We had no complaints from any kid or adult! The house is nicely decorated and comfortable. We really appreciated the AC on the near 100 degree day we arrived! It's located in a quiet safe neighborhood just a short walk from Camden Yards. We could hear the ball games when we were on the back deck! It's a short drive or Uber ride to Inner Harbor, Fed Hill and Fell's point. My daughter and I even walked back to the house after a wonderful dinner at Thames St Oyster House in Fell's Point. It was a nice walk along the harbor. We even could have walked to our daughter's graduation at the Royal Farms Arena. It would have been much less hassle to walk there and back to the house after graduation to get our car instead of parking at the arena and dealing with the traffic after graduation. A major plus if you are bringing your car (or two) is the parking pad right at the rear of the house, plus a pass for on street parking or parking in the lot behind the property. You could totally stay at this property and enjoy the area without a car, too. My only regret......that we didn't find this place sooner! My daughter loved her 4 years at Loyola and we loved visiting her in Baltimore. We probably would have visited more often if we had known about this place!
