The house was well stocked with decent cooking equipment and dishes. Good towels, and comfortable beds. The bathrooms were a bit small for us (the tiny sinks!). Had a really challenging time using the sinks without getting water all over the floor. King bedroom did not have an electrical outlet on both sides of the bed (kind of inconvenient for using cpap machines and charging phones). Overall, the place is fine but kind of small.

Great location
5/5 stars
The location is wonderful. So easy to walk downtown to restaurants , shops and Naval academy! It’s also great to have two small parking spots.

Super cute!
5/5 stars
Had a very nice time staying at this property—location is unbeatable! Beds were wonderful—and very well equipped. Great place for a getaway to Annapolis!
- Suzanne
Perfect for a crew
5/5 stars
Location is convenient for evening walks to dinner or ice cream, yet quiet. Suitable for large families- the kids loved the 3rd story rooms. Steep steps for Grandpa with a hip replacement but we managed okay. On-site parking was a huge plus-two vehicles will fit but recommend unloading first as it is a tight squeeze. House was very clean!

Great City
5/5 stars
The Seashell home was located in a fantastic spot! It was in close proximity to shops, restaurants and the Naval Academy. The interior of the home was comfortable and pleasing . The quaint setting was enjoyable. The backyard setting was comfortable but could be enhanced with trimming of the entrance to the garden. Overall , I recommend this home to those who want to enjoy a safe and enjoyable time in the Downtown area . Thank you

Couldn't have asked for better!
5/5 stars
Every part of our stay was delightful! For our first time visiting Annapolis, Seashell in the City was the perfect location. Leaving our rental car in the place's parking pad (a gift in the limited parking downtown), we enjoyed walking a short few blocks (under 5 min!) to the heart of this quaint, cute, and history-rich town. As we live in a land-locked area, being able to see the water and boats daily in the harbor on our vacation was refreshing and memorable! We envisioned living in various eras as we spent time in the historic yet renovated Seashell. From the decorating colors (fresh and bright) to the gorgeous wood floors to the clean, soft sheets, we felt more than at home! The generous-sized kitchen and new dishes and cooking tools allowed for many home-cooked meals (including grilled fish) to be enjoyed on the roomy farm-style dining table. There was ample relaxing space inside (from the front gathering room to each bedroom's sitting areas) and a private backdoor outdoor spot as well. My husband and daughter enjoyed morning runs down past Main Street and onto the Naval Academy grounds. We were able to drive a short 25 minutes to the orange-line Metro stop to experience some time in DC. Cathy was in contact with us before, during, and after our week-long stay. Thank you for providing a sanctuary for our spring break trip!

5/5 stars
We stayed here for parents weekend and it couldn’t have been more perfect. It’s a short walk to The Yard and a block from Main St. This lovely place was the perfect size for the four of us and had everything we needed. Jennifer and Sean were amazing, from making us feel welcome when we arrived to checking in on us during our stay. We had a situation where we needed a bit more time with our Mid and they went above and beyond in helping us out. I highly recommend renting anywhere with Jennifer & Sean, but if you are looking for a wonderful, cozy spot close to town, this is a gem.

Home away from Home!
5/5 stars
I LOVE this property! Every single thing I needed was available in this super clean, updated, beautiful home steps from Main Street! Cathy was more than helpful, contacting us late Friday night to let us know the streets were open in Annapolis from the historic flooding. My visit with my Mom and her friends to see my son, a plebe at the Naval Academy, was extra special because of our accommodations at this precious home!
