Property description

Just a 6 minute walk to the beach.

This charming one floor living single home is immaculate, comfortable, sunny and breezy and just a short stroll to the beach. Your own private, single home, tucked into the prime section of Ocean City. The desirable Gardens section of Ocean City is less congested and a short walk to the secluded north end beach. Short stroll or bike ride to the boardwalk, perfect for early morning walks and invigorating bike rides.

Head out the back of the Gardens to the Longport Bridge. Connect to Sommers Point or a short 9 mile ride to the excitement of Atlantic City's casinos, live shows, and great restaurants. Top off your fun-filled days with a delicious cook-out and enjoy the evening on your private deck.

Why share your vacation in a condo with strangers living upstairs or downstairs or walking up 2, 3 even 4 flights of steps to enjoy your Ocean City vacation? This one story single family home in the desirable Gardens of Ocean City will be a delight!

Comfortable furnishings and bedding done in a modern cottage style will make your much deserved vacation a relaxing and enjoyable one!

The peaceful Gardens, tucked away but close to everything will take you away from crowds, traffic and congestion....

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We live in Shillington, Pa. , a suburb of Reading Pa. Fred owns 2 retail stores that are side by side and joined in the middle. The eclectic mix of Fred's Music Shop , guitar specialty shop since 1972 ! and Tasty Licks BBQ Supply selling great ourdoor cooking things since 2007 .. many recipes and cooking videos on that website ...get to know Fred before you book and then give him a call !

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Gardens:
We chose our property because of its location in the beautiful Gardens section of Ocean City. The Gardens is a quiet area where you can relax and not worry about 'partying' disturbing your vacation. The beaches in the Gardens are beautiful and you will walk right onto them, with no boardwalk etc... just stroll out onto the sand! This location, on the northern end of the island also allows you easy access on and off the island via the Longport bridge ..minutes to Atlantic City and Somers Point. (Restaurants, Nightclubs, Shopping, Gambling etc. )

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Single floor living, yard, deck, quieter area, short walk to the beach!
