Private Homes, North End house description

Location, Location, Location! This lovely beach getaway is just steps from the beach and boardwalk - a short 2-3 minute walk. Our four bedroom, two bathroom house comfortably sleeps 12. Great amenities include a spacious and open living/dining/kitchen area. This open and airy house provides lots of room for relaxing, visiting, and eating. The large dining room table is particularly perfect for game nights. The master bedroom has a new KING bed and master bathroom. Two bedrooms have queen beds for comfortable sleeping. The last bedroom is set up for kids -a queen bed and a twin w/ trundle. When the trundle is pulled out, it's wall-to-wall beds and sleeps four. Kid love it! Of course there is central air and each bedroom (and the living room) has a ceiling fan. Both bathrooms are large and nicely decorated for your comfort.

We take great pride in making sure that our house is your home away from home. We personally clean our house each Saturday to ensure that it is perfect for you. We maintain our property with continual refurbishing and upgrades. Many of our tenants return year after year due to the many extras and amenities in this beautiful beach getaway. 888 4th Street is a duplex with first floor convenience! Just think, no long steps to climb and an easy walk to the beach!

You get a lot for your money when you rent our house! We offer many extras that will make your vacation even nicer and more fun. Make your packing easy and don't jam your car full of items you don;t need. Beach chairs, umbrellas, bikes are all included. Unlike other Ocean City rentals, we provided bath towels, hand towels and washcloths. The kitchen is fully stocked - all the usual appliances plus electric griddle, wok, salad spinner, crock pot, toaster oven, steamer and more. 888 4th Street has a huge selection of children & family games, toys, books and movies. The living room has a 42' flat screen Hi Def Plasma TV and Bluray player. Each bedroom has a TV and most have a DVD player. We have cable throughout and premium stations (HBO, STARZ, Cinamax, SHO and Sports Entertainment Package.) Password protected secure wifi included. Beach tags are free.

Parking this close to the beach and boardwalk is always an issue. We have off street parking for at least three cars - more if you have smaller cars. An outside storage room is available to you and houses the beach gear and bikes for your use. The hot water outdoor shower room has a nice shower surround and a locking door for privacy.

We also own 863 Brighton Place, directly behind 888 4th Street. We just purchased a third house at 859 Brighton Place (right next door to 863 Brighton.) Both of these other houses are also first floor four bedroom houses. The VRBO listing numbers are 335221 and 601752. This is ideal for large families that need multiple houses!

We rent only to families. Must be 21 to rent. No senior/prom week rentals. Please do not ask. No pets and no smoking. Call or email for additional info.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1999

                  About the owner: We love Ocean City! We have spent our summers here since we were children. We now have four grown children and have enjoyed many vacations in this family friendly shore resort. Our daughter and her husband were married on the Ocean City beach in 2009. Our family stayed here at 888 4th Street for the wedding weekend and the bridal party got dressed here - an ideal place to entertain!

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, North End:
                  Ocean City is simply the perfect place for a vacation! Families come here to relax, reconnect and have fun. We love this end of the island! Fourth Street is peaceful and quiet, but the boardwalk and all it has to offer is a one to two minute walk away. We love our early morning bike rides and evening strolls on the boardwalk. Our guarded beach is equally close. We think that this is the best location in Ocean City!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We offer many extra amenities. We have covered off street parking for three or four cars. Our outdoor hot/ cold water shower room gives you one more location to use when everyone wants to shower after a day at the beach. The large storage room is available to you and stores many extras for your use. We provide beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys and bicycles. We have both adult and children's libraries, as well as an extensive video collection. We feature numerous family games, children's toys, puzzles and building/construction sets. We provide bath towels for our tenants. The 42' HD plasma flat screen TV and blue ray player in the living area has premium cable stations. Each bedroom has a television, DVD/VCR players and ceiling fans. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the typical offerings and enough extras to delight a chef. We want our house to be your home away from home!
