We stayed for 4 nights at Eric's condo and had a wonderful family get together! The condo is clean, easy to find and also to get to other things in the area. While we ate our meals out, it was nice to be able to make coffee and lounge in the mornings and come back in the evening to a pretty and clean location! Would definitely return and also recommend to others!

We vacationed with our son and daugher in-law and grandchild in Ocean City and stayed in Erics Townhome. It was perfectly clean and very well equiped. Everything was avalible for a perfect stay and close to all the Ocean City excitement but located in a nice quiet spot on the water. We felt very safe in this location and I would reccomend this townhome to anyone. Eric has been great to work with and everyone we spoke to at the townhome was complimetary towards him. Very Satisfied

Beautiful Townhouse and Great Location!
Beautiful Townhouse and Great Location!
This beautiful townhouse way exceeded our expectations for our beach vacation! It is very well maintained both inside and out. All amenities listed above were available for our use. The swimming pool is kept very clean and after being out and about, it was nice to come back and relax poolside. Our family really enjoyed crabbing off the fishing pier located a hop, skip and jump away from the townhouse. The first couple days of our stay we had some rain, so we enjoyed shopping at the Tanger Outlets in RB. and ate out. The three restaurants we enjoyed the most were The Countryside Café, Fenwick, Harpoon Hanna's (walking distance) and Ember's (AYCE Buffett, OC). I also enjoyed the BEACH at Fenwick! Lots to do in the area. Eric (owner) was super nice, VERY helpful and accommodating. I recommend this property for a short stay in the off season or a week long family vacation. Hoping to visit with you next year!! Thanks Again, The Cuccurullo Family Northeast PA

We enjoyed our stay at the Portofino a couple of weeks ago. The description and photos are very accurate and the owner was fast to respond to questions. It was also very clean and well-maintained. We were lucky to be there when the beautiful crepe myrtle trees throughout the property were in full bloom. The best part about staying here is the peaceful neighborhood. It is quiet, safe and very nice for walking. The views from the pier are absolutely gorgeous. The beach, with free parking on the street, is about five minutes away. If you stay here, be sure to try Jimmy's Kitchen in Fenwick, DE for breakfast. You can't beat their fast service and excellent breakfast. They are so close to Portofino that we went there every day for breakfast before the beach. We definitely recommend Portofino for its convenient location and would stay there again.

Fourth of July Week
Fourth of July Week
Our family had a wonderful stay here for Fourth of July. It's in a great location and the property was well-maintained and perfect for a trip to the shore! It was the first trip our yorkie, Rupert, has truly enjoyed instead of being cooped up in a small two-bedroom hotel rental. Without as much space and calmness there's no way he would've adjusted as well as he did and let us all relax more as a result. Definitely a great find for any pet owners looking for something in close driving distance to Fenwick, Ocean City, Bethany, Assateague, or just the beach itself. Be sure to stop by Harpoon Hannah's for a cool frozen drink and some karaoke by the bay! We had a blast.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I enjoy the beach and the Eastern Shore. I appreciate the slower way of life and the beauty of the wildlife. I particularly look forward to crabbing and fishing from the pier. And, of course, I take advantage of the great tax-free shopping in Rehoboth and the many restaurants and fun things to do. It's a nice place to vacation and a great place to hang out after a tough week.
Why the Owner Chose North Ocean City:
I purchased this property because my family and I always felt so good when we rented various units. It feels like home. Living in Portofino has provided me and my family with memories of a lifetime. We have had such fun. The residents have always been friendly and helpful and it never feels crowded, except for a few days of the year.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Portofino is located in North Ocean City/Fenwick Island. The area is less congested and accessibility to activities is wonderful. The community is quiet and relaxing, yet it is just minutes from the exciting night-life and cool stuff that you can enjoy on the water. It's so hard to believe that you can be in downtown OC or Bethany Beach in 12-30 minutes. You can stay in the Portofino neighborhood and crab, fish, swim, walk to fine dining establishments or recreational centers, without experiencing the crowds. It's not just a house...it's a community.
