Buyer Beware
If well-maintained means a roach infestation and a front door you can't open or lock securely, then you may like this property. But we would not recommend this property to friends or family. It was not rental ready. The customer service was poor in responding to our concerns about unsanitary and unsafe conditions. Here's a bit of what we experienced & documented with photos: -No parking or unloading nearby -No instructions provided about parking zones or the house--good luck figuring out how to get in the gate or doors. No keys provided. Code was wrong, not changed from previous occupants. -The owner was on vacation when we arrived and advised us she could not be reached by telephone or text as her phone was "drying out in a rice maker." About a week after notifying her of the problems, she came to the property to inspect it. -It is a historic home, the living room & sunroom walls do not meet the floor by a 1 to 3" gap, so critters get in. And the brick living room floor used to be a street, 150+ years of street dirt right under your feet -- no way to clean it or get furniture to sit level. Charming? Perhaps, if you are camping? -Trash & yard debris piled up. Backyard unusable due to leaf, storm debris. We spent 3 hours cleaning it up. -Roach infestation which the owner called "waterbugs." Our exterminators at home identified the bugs we put in a Ziplock bag as roaches. 10 days after our arrival, the owner sprayed Raid, which did not work. She did nothing else. Our exterminators said we should not unpack unless we wanted the fecal matter & the bacteria roaches carry on their bodies to get on our clothes or for the roaches to stow away in our luggage & infest where we went next. -The owner said she "bent over backwards to accommodate us" by bringing Raid & pots/pans (there weren't any) almost 10 days after we arrived. -City parking permits are $3 a day, not $5 as charged Caveat emptor! There were no reviews on this property & we didn't do our homework with the City of Annapolis. Save yourself the same trouble.
