Friends say I am the Host-ess with the Most-ess who has never met a stranger!
I have been hosting, families and strangers in my home for many years... whether overnight, at one of my many gatherings or just for dinner. So hosting Airbnb guests in my home was a natural extension. My goal is always to ensure the best stay possible for my guests. Here in my home in Bolton Hill, I have hosted short term guests since 2007.
It takes a village... My brother David helps me as co-host and co-owner of the Cross St property. And if you stay long enough, you will meet our amazing cleaning crew led by Blanca and her sisters! And if you stay at our Bolton Hill location, you'll meet my two feline co-hosts-- Alfie and Sebastian.
They say if you do what you love, you'll never work another day in your life. I left a 15 year career in government and politics to do this full time. Some days I am still amazed that I get paid to do this.
I love the sights, tastes and sounds of Charm City and welcome the opportunity to share some of my fave things with you! Need some restaurant or entertainment suggestions? I'm your girl!
In addition to my own properties, I cohost and assist other airbnb hosts with their listings! I also serve the board of directors for a number of local organizations and volunteer with and support a few different animal rescue groups and shelters/transitional housing for people who need a little help to get their lives together. Both my kitties - Alfie and Sebastian- were rescued strays. AirBNB helps me support the great work done by some amazing, dedicated people.
My love for gardening and flowers can be seen in the beautiful courtyard I share with my neighbors and private backyard. I am a member of several neighborhood associations and the Bolton Hill Garden Club which works very hard to raise money to help beautify the neighborhood.
