Private Homes, North End house description

Enjoy this beautiful Ocean City, New Jersey (OCNJ) property offering comfort and relaxation with the amenities of home. 100% brand new, from carpet to silverware and everything in between. This is a professionally decorated, non-smoking 1st floor duplex on the ocean side of tree-lined Asbury Ave (between 4th and 5th). Quiet, residential area, yet close to everything. The beach, boardwalk, bay (with fishing docks and boating/jet ski rentals) and the wonderful shops that line Asbury are all a short walk, with no need to move your car. This home is adjacent to the Tabernacle with its weekly Farmer’s Market and children’s activities. All beaches in our neighborhood are lifeguarded throughout the summer, with some beach locations through the end of September.

Our home offers an open floor plan with sleeping accommodation for 8. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances and center island with seating for two, leaving ample space to prepare those picnic lunches for the beach. Best of all, the refrigerator includes an ice and purified water dispenser on the door, so there is no need to make frequent trips to the grocery store for fresh ice or bottled water. The dining room has a large square table which includes a bench, to comfortably seat 8 to 9, leaving plenty of room for everyone to gather together for meals. The beautiful kitchen is fully equipped with brand new microwave, oven range, new side by side fridge, dishwasher, dining service for 12, as well as plenty of plastic tableware for the kids. A toaster, professional grade 'coffee-on-demand' carafe-free coffee maker, blender, electric skillet and plastic container storage are also provided, along with a full array of cookware and cooking utensils.

The adjoining family room includes a 50-inch flat screen HDTV with cable and DVD player, situated above a gas fireplace (seasonal). There is also a Wii system with plenty of games for the whole family to enjoy. The family room boasts a large sectional sofa, overstuffed chair, and an authentic “boardwalk” coffee table. The kitchen and family room open to the large front deck which includes both chat seating and a dining area. Plenty of room for relaxing with your early morning coffee or after a day at the beach.

The master bedroom features a king pillow-top bed, flat screen TV with cable, sliding glass doors to a furnished back deck, and a private bathroom with walk in shower. The second bedroom features a queen bed, flat screen TV with cable and large sliding glass door with direct access to the back deck. The third bedroom offers a twin-over-full bunk with twin trundle. This room includes a flat panel TV/DVD combo with cable. All bedrooms include dressers for storage and ample closet space. All mattresses and pillows are enclosed in allergy/bed bug-proof covers and include washable mattress pads and comforters. Additional blankets and pillows are also provided for our guests.

You'll find brand new carpeting and furniture throughout the house. The property has central air conditioning and a full-size washer and dryer. Ceiling fans adorn the two main bedrooms and family room. An enclosed outdoor shower and convenient wash-up hose are located on the side of the house, allowing for easy clean up after a day at the beach.

A pathway around the back of the house provides access to the driveway and dual-entry garage (door or keypad access). There is driveway parking and ample street parking (as available) in the front of the house (no meters). It is an easy walk to the boardwalk, beaches, tennis and basketball courts, shuffle board, volleyball courts and skate park. The wonderful shops and restaurants on Asbury Avenue begin just one short block away. Park your car in the driveway and forget it for the week!

Ocean City is a wonderful, family friendly resort town with lots to offer - beautiful sand beaches, a multitude of restaurants and shops, nearby water activities and golf, and boardwalk entertainment including amusements and water park.

Our home is walking distance to all of the boardwalk entertainment (which extends from 6 to 14th streets), yet separated from all of the noise and congestion of the motel district. For those looking for a little grown up excitement, the Longport Bridge is just a few minutes away and provides easy access to Atlantic City, as well as the wonderful dining options in Margate.

Included in your rental are beach towels, 4 beach tags, bikes, beach chairs, beach toys and shovels, skim and boogie boards, as well as a beach cart to make your walk to the beach a breeze! Indoor activities include, boardgames, Wii, puzzles and DVDs for your enjoyment.

We ask that you supply your own linens specific to the bed sizes for each room.

You'll find a detailed guest book that will answer most frequently asked questions, and includes favorite restaurant recommendations, menus and suggestions how to maximize your vacation stay - from how to book a tennis court, directions to the zoo, rainy-day recommendations, and more!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: Our family has been vacationing in Ocean City for many years. It was always our dream to own a home of our own so that we could enjoy Ocean City year round when our schedules allowed. That dream became reality in 2012. We love being homeowners and take great pride in our wonderful adopted hometown. We are thrilled to share our home with families like our own and take great pleasure in knowing that our home plays a small role in creating life long memories for our renters. We have tried to equip our home with every creature comfort and amenity we wished for when we were renters. We hope you enjoy your stay in our home and welcome any comments as to ways we can improve our home both for our own enjoyment and our renters as well.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, North End:
                  We selected this particular property for many reasons. First, it was only built a few years ago, so it has that 'new' feel. It also has the open concept design we enjoy, especially on vacation. We don't want to be separated, we came on vacation to be together! Finally, the location allows us to enjoy all of the wonderful activities Ocean City has to offer without ever getting in the car. We are an easy walk to the beach, the boardwalk rides and shops, the terrific stores and restaurants that line Asbury Avenue and the bay where we enjoy dock fishing and crabbing, boating, stand up paddle boarding and kayaking.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Each of us has our favorite quality about our home. My husband and I love the comfy chairs on the front porch where we can sit with our coffee and newspaper and just relax. We also love the farmer's market which is held every wednesday in the summer, just a half block away. Our teenager enjoys that he can walk or skateboard anywhere he wants to go in a matter of minutes- wonderful freedom for a suburban teen. Our pre-teen's favorites are too many to list; from the bunk beds he always wanted to the Brown's donuts he craves every morning!
