Interaction with guests

I have the pleasure of being a home care nurse, my cases come with long hours, so during the week, there may not be too much interaction. When I am home, I'm working on other business ventures or taking time to relax. I do like to socialize so we may get in a conversation and some laughs. But if you're the more independent type, you'll be just fine.

The neighborhood

The Overlea neighborhood dates back to 1895, but now you'll find a mix of owner residences and small rental units. If you have a good eye, you'll notice original structures and hints of its past.

Getting around

The best way to get around, if you're not driving, is taxi/cab services. Uber is a common and affordable means as well. If you like variety, I've seen Lyft drivers too.

From my address, you're a 10 minutes drive to Morgan State; 20 minutes to Towson University. If you need the beltway as part of your route, you can make it in 15 minutes or less. Places like the Inner Harbor, Orioles Stadium, Ravens Stadium, are a 30 minute drive, but catch a ride and see the sites along the way.

Shopping and Restaurants: Towson Town Center, 20 minutes; The Avenue @ White Marsh, 15 minutes

Within and close to the neighborhood you'll find a variety of take out, local bar and grills, grocery stores, there's also Carraba's.

Other things to note

If you're driving, street parking is available and safe.
My cat Treble, he mainly stays on the lower level, unless I'm home. I keep the guest room door closed so he doesn't go "snooping", a typical cat he's nosey :)
Something to note, I live in a 4 unit apt building, you may hear the neighbor upstairs.

Gia is a friendly, accommodating host. The room is bright, lovely and sooo comfortable. Snacks, water, coffee, tea and toiletries were a nice touch. Would definitely return!

Gia was very nice and place was as described. I would suggest if you are a light sleeper bringing ear plugs, building is older and creaky. Otherwise, would definitely stay again!

First time hearing that… Thank you for letting me know, I guess living here for this length of time I don't notice those sounds anymore... I appreciate your honesty!

A little about me, hmmm...
I am a nurse and an entrepreneur, because I believe you shouldn't rely on just one income.
Things I love: the Caribbean-sun, white sand beaches, clear blue waters, oh and the food!! Self-help books, relevant quotes, meaningful conversation, healthy living, good food, massages(hot stone specifically), get away weekends, shoes;).
5 things I can't live without: hot tea w/ lemon and honey, pineapple, Burts Bees lip balm, a good scripture, and breakfast.
I definitely consider myself a social being, I like meeting new people and learning who they are, but...after a while, I need retreat to myself.
If I had to choose a life motto, I guess it would be... "Not afraid to go solo!"
