Property description

Three Bedroom town home with 2 1/2 baths located in the Portofino community, just off of Delaware Route 54. A Sun room in the back of the house provides additional privacy and a queen sofa bed for sleeping. All beds are queen size. A washer/dryer are conveniently located on the second level; cleaning supplies are provided for your convenience. The house is equipped with four TVs, 3 DVD players and even a VCR for your pleasure--there is a Bose Stereo system in LR, too. Games in the unit are available to occupy everyone. Only a short drive or bike trip to the beach, and then return for a dip in the community pool. Bring a chair to the pool and you can sun bath on site without the sand!. Within walking distance of fine dining at Catch 54 and the well-known Harpoon Hanna's restaurants. Or, relax at the Zen Spa or enjoy coffee or a light snack at the Route 54 Internet Cafe. And, the house is equipped with wireless Internet for your computing. The Bethany Beach Boardwalk is 12 minutes away and North Ocean City is but one mile away. Fenwick Island is just one mile away and there is ample tax free shopping and eating--Fenwick has a mini-Boardwalk with golf, water park and other eateries. The night life of Ocean City is so close, but you can come at night to the quiet and relaxation at Portofino. You'll never know you're even at the beach, but it's all there for you, if you want it. There is a community pier for fishing, crabbing or just watching the wildlife or boats riding up and down the Fenwick Ditch.

Car: Recommended

This unit is a 3 Bedroom, 2 1/2 bath townhouse located off of the beaten path. Portofino is a quiet community of 32 units with a community pool and a pier that can be used for crabbing, fishing or just watching the boats travelling up and down the ditch. It is a very relaxing area, yet the Bethany Boardwalk is about 12 minutes away and the busy/exciting Ocean City night life is one mile away. Go Karts, the movie theater, the indoor amusement park and the bus are available in North OC. Award wining restaurants like Catch 54 and Harpoon Hanna's are a short walk away, as well as the Route 54 Internet Cafe or Zen Spa Studio. Boat or jet ski rentals are within walking distance. You can bike to the beach, or drive and park, or cool at our pool!! Fenwick is two minutes away with tax-free shopping and its own mini-Boardwalk with golf, restaurants and a water park. The townhouse is comfortably decorated with a beach theme and the Kitchen is fully stocked; you can even grill outside and eat on the patio. Wireless Internet is available. A pier is available to view the Fenwick Ditch and the many vessels passing by.

 

Owner info

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.
