Private Homes, Gold Coast house description

Beautifully decorated and well maintained 1st floor unit available for weekly, monthly, or seasonal rental.

This property is located on the ocean side of Central Avenue between 25th and 26th Streets. It is very convenient to both the beach and boardwalk. The beach is a short walk to 26th Street, turning left and crossing only one avenue (Wesley Avenue) and on to the beach. The boardwalk begins at 23rd Street and provides a nice area for the morning bike ride or an evening stroll.

The rental unit is bright and cheery and has been recently updated with new furniture, bedding, carpeting, and paint. We have also recently updated the bathrooms, kitchen, and the air conditioning system in the past few years. The kitchen is well stocked if you desire to cook, although the many opportunities for take-out and restaurant dining will provide stiff competition after a full day on the beach.

The unit has a full bath (with shower and tub) in the hall adjacent to the bedrooms. There is a half bath in the master bedroom, and an enclosed outdoor shower for your exclusive use. A secure storage area for your bikes and beach toys is located next to your parking space.

                        What a great choice we made when we rented this home. It was everything we expected and more...A nice, quite and well manicured area. 1 block from the beach, 2 blocks to the boardwalk. The rental was clean and very comfortable. 4 days after we left we received our security deposit from the landlord who was a true pleasure to deal with....SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!!

                        We had a wonderful week long stay at this property. The home was spotless, extremely comfortable, and spacious. Although it was only two adults and one child, the home could certainly accomodate another family comfortably. We were thrilled with our experience and as someone who was born and raised in the area, I thought the home was one of the nicer I've been in.

                        This past July was our 6th vacation in Ocean City. We loved the house and the location! The house was full of character (unlike many of the new cookie-cutter houses) and beautifully decorated in a happy colored OCNJ theme. Of course, the bathrooms and kitchen were updated. Our favorite spot - other than the beach - was the front porch. We loved watching the neighborhood go by; this was a very active area for walkers, joggers and bikers. We could walk to the beach in such a minimal amount of time - a real luxury - that we made multiple shorter beach visits each day, rather than one long one. The owners were very helpful from our first contact throughout our vacation and even afterwards. We would recommend this home to anyone that appreciates the charm of yesteryear combined with the convenience of today along with a perfect location!

                        My family and I(husband, wife, and 2 young girls ages 2 and 1) really enjoyed our stay at this home. We had enough room for everyone to spread out. We even had some guests stay with us a few nights comfortably as well. The home is very cozy and I enjoyed the layout. The best part about it is the front patio because it is covered. You can enjoy your meals out there and see all the people walk by relaxing in the shade. If it had a gate so my little 1 year old wouldn't go down the steps that would have been even better. The yard is beautiful with lots of flowers. The location was also nice, but not the best. The shortest walk to the beach and it is a very short walk (about 1 block or not even), but the entrance to the beach at 25th Street has stairs. It was very difficult to carry everything up and down the stairs to the beach. I wish there were ramps at every entrance to the beach. Anyway, we discovered that if we walked to 26th entrance instead (just a little longer walk) there is a ramp. If you want to walk to town where the rides are on the boardwalk or where most of the activities are on Asbury St. you have to drive a car and if you want to go to playground at 34th street you can walk but it is a long walk so you will most likely drive a car and basically most restaurants and ice cream places all require driving. We always found parking easily so this wasn't a problem but for some reason I really enjoy walking while on vacation and that is why I gave this property a 4 star instead of 5. If you want to go for a casual stroll there is a nature preserve trail entrance right down the street. That is also great for bike rides and jogging, etc. The owners of the property live upstairs on the 2nd floor and were very friendly and kept there distance. I only saw them when I was on the outside patio and they walked by. I think this house was great for little children. FYI, they have a booster seat and I think a pack & play. I didn't know this so I brought my own booster seat and I rented a crib. All in all we enjoyed our stay at this property and I think it was great for the price.

                        Rental was clean and located in a perfect location. Far enough from the hustle and bustle of the busy boardwalk, but close enough via a bike ride. Our family had a wonderful time. Only a block away from the beach which was where we spent most of our time. Check out Dots Pastry shop on Asbury (not a far walk either). Fresh donuts and pastries for breakfast were great. Owners were very nice and helpful if you have any questions. The location was quiet and sitting on the porch in the evening was peaceful. Lots of good food and great entertainment is only a short drive. Would highly recommend staying here. Would love to return again next year.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1994

                      About the owner: We are a family of six (Dad, Mom, and four boys - ages 25, 23, 20, 17). We have really enjoyed spending our summers in Ocean City.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Gold Coast:
                      We (Dad and Mom) have been vacationing in Ocean City since we were children and had such a wonderful time that we started renting a summer home shortly after getting married in 1986. We purchased the property (both floors of the duplex) in 1994 so that we would have a home to come to every year; and also with the additional rental unit, a place for our children to bring their children some day.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We think that our home is located in the best part of the island. Kessels Korner, where you can get breakfast, lunch, or dinner -- and more importantly, ice cream! -- is only a short walk away. Our favorite thing to do is to ride our bikes on the boardwalk every morning and have breakfast at Browns Restaurant -- their breakfast is great and the award winning, fresh baked, doughnuts are even better!
