Traders Cove townhome description

BEAUTIFUL, ABSOLUTE WATER FRONT LOCATION. Located near end of private, dead-end lane. Two private decks hang out over bay and bay access is steps away. Private dock with covered gazebo is 200 ft away. Great for small kids to check out fish and ducks, or do some crabbing. Boat dock and slip available, no extra charge.
EASY, FAMILY FRIENDLY. Park in 2 assigned spaces right in front, walk 20 ft and enter ground floor of home. No elevators, no huge parking lots to schlep luggage through. Walk into the soaring 25 foot entry, through the large, hardwood-floored LR, out onto the deck, and enjoy breathtaking water panoramas. Fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, central AC, 3 large HDTVs with 80-channel cable, internet and WiFi. One BR with bath is on ground floor for family members who dislike stairs. Master BR has its own bath and a second deck overlooking bay. BRs 3 and 4 also have individual adjoining baths. Water hoses at entry and on deck wash away the sand after a day at beach.
WONDERFUL LOCATION. Peaceful, family oriented community, close to major attractions: just steps away from bay beach and private dock, 1 block to Ocean City Tennis Complex, 2 blocks to restaurants and bus serving all of Ocean City; 3 blocks (700 yards) to white sand Atlantic Ocean beach with life guards; walking distance to local hot spots like Fager's Island, Dead Freddies and Seacrets; 1 mile to jet boats, para-sailing and minigolf; 2.5 miles to Jolly Roger amusement park and deep sea fishing; 10 great golf courses within 10 miles, including Lighthouse Sound, ranked in nation's top 100 by Golf Magazine and Rum Pointe, ranked 5th in MD by GolfWeek. Assateague National Seashore and its wild ponies are 27 miles.
NO-HASSLES. Freshly laundered sheets and pillow cases will be on the beds and clean towels hung in baths when you arrive, so no need to rent linens or bring your own as most OC rentals require. Local manager will meet you at arrival with cold drinks; ensure your internet and WiFi connections work; get your 3 HDTVs and DVD up and ready; show you how everything works. No driving to an unfamiliar reservations office to get keys, fumble with locks, struggle with unfamiliar equipment. If you prefer complete flexibility we'll provide digital door code to arrive any time you'd like. Fast, convenient booking via credit card, PayPal or direct transfer.
FAMILY ORIENTED: This townhome community is family oriented, so sorry, no college or high school groups. One person in family group must be at least 25 years old.
KEYWORDS: Lovely, large townhome, 1630 sq ft., directly on bay. Family friendly, secluded, easy entrance on ground fl. Three blocks from OC's famous Atlantic Ocean beach. Local manager will meet you at arrival to show you how everything works, and ensure that it does! Linens provided.

              Location

              Car: Recommended

              You have to stroll or ride the tram on the famous Ocean City boardwalk. It starts 2.5 miles from this townhome and extends another 2 miles to the pier and amusement rides. It's action packed and carnival-like in some areas, but has great rides for kids, and of course, taffy, cotton-candy, and Thrasher's famous fries. With nearly a hundred beach-side restaurants, the boardwalk is a great place to get your soft-shelled crabs and crab cakes. And the people watching is great!

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: Hugh and Betty Murphy, shown here with their son, Doug, traveled widely as work took them to UK, Japan and Dubai. Living now in Ocean City, they find the beach scene and attractions best on the east coast.

              Why the Owner Chose Traders Cove:
              Close to all of OC's action, but when you've had enough, great to get away to a peaceful home on the bay.

              The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
              Spectacular views. See all of Isle of Wight Bay. Sunsets are indescribably beautiful
