Private Homes, South End house description

Listed at the top as one of the 31 Best Beach Vacation Spots in the US by Coastal Living Magazine, May, 2010 (p. 14)!

Ocean City, NJ is a barrier island known as 'America's Greatest Family Resort' 25 miles north of the southern tip of New Jersey. If you've been to the 'South End' of Ocean City, you'll know why we love it -- quiet, non-commercial and beautiful! Our home is the eighth house from the very end of the island, right across the street from the beach, with great views of the 'point,' (the point is the end of a mile long stretch of completely undeveloped beach), the old pier, and the ocean from our front deck.

Our home is the first floor of a 2-unit duplex, but our floor is 9' above ground level so it's quiet and breezy. Across the street are sand dunes, then the beach and ocean. Ocean City is a dry town, so no bars, package stores, or nightclubs, so it is quiet and family-oriented. You can, of course, purchase package goods right across the bridge in Marmora.

Take the trolley to the 2 mile-long Boardwalk for rides, miniature golf, novelties, food of all kinds, and shopping, fish from the beach or rent a boat, or just relax on the beach, or on our front porch.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2001

          About the owner: My wife and I and my brother and his wife bought our wonderful home in 2001, fulfilling a lifelong dream. Both of us grew up spending summers in Ocean City - on the same block as our home. I am a clinical psychologist and the Director of the Counseling Center at Trinity College in Hartford, CT, my wife is a clinical social worker in Windsor, CT and my brother and his wife own a Mr. Handyman franchise in Malvern,PA. We all spend as much time as we can in Ocean City, but with a mortgage and taxes, we need to rent it as much as we can. Come see why we love it!

          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, South End:
          Both my brother and I grew up spending summers in Ocean City - on the same block as our home and we knew that we wanted to own a home here at some point. We're glad to have made our dream a reality.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Ocean City is a 'dry' town,meaning there are no bars, nightclubs or clubs. Alcohol is available right off the island (5 minutes from our home) but the island itself maintains a quiet, family-oriented charm.
