This charming one floor living single home is immaculate, comfortable, sunny and breezy and less that 5 minutes to the beach with no busy streets to cross. It is located in the desirable Gardens section of Ocean City, which is less congested and has some of the the best beaches on the island. With our home, there is no need to spend your vacation in a condo with strangers living upstairs or downstairs or walking up and down a flight of steps during your Ocean City vacation. Enjoy the ease of single-story living with a patio next to your own irrigated yard.
A Life Guard patrolled swimming beach (E. Atlantic) and surfing beach (Waverly) are both an easy walk from the front door. The kids will love TJs ice-cream shop a few doors down as well as Browns’ donuts, which serves donuts that are made fresh right before your eyes. Head out the back of the Gardens to the Longport Bridge where you can connect to Sommers Point or take the short 9 mile ride to the excitement of Atlantic City's casinos, live shows, and great restaurants. Top off your fun-filled days with a delicious cook-out and enjoy the evening on your private patio. After you lock-in your reservation, we will send you a complete list of all of our favorite spots, both on and off the island. It is the wisdom of over 40 summers spent in Ocean City.

There is a great ice-cream shop only a few doors down, and both swimming and surfing beaches are less than a 5 minute walk.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: My wife and I, along with our three daughters (ages 13, 11 and 8) have been vacationing in OCNJ our entire lives. My wife and I grew up outside of Philadelphia but couldn't stop coming to the Jersey shore even after we moved to the Washington DC area in 1998. We now live in Arlington VA and spend as much time as our schedule allows at the beach. Some of our best family memories were created in Ocean City.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Gardens: For many summers we stayed at a home my grandmother owns on 19th street but always dreamed of owning our own little piece of sand in Ocean City. While we had always loved the center of the island, we fell in love with charm, privacy and convenience of the Gardens area of Ocean City. There is an ice-cream shop a few doors down and there are great neighborhood restaurants near-by. The amusement park rides, water park, and shops on the boardwalk are a 15 minute walk and Browns, which serves homemade donuts made fresh before your eyes, is less than a 10 minute walk from the front door.
The Unique Benefits at this House: As you may know, most of the homes in Ocean City are duplexes, with very little privacy. Our home is a single level cottage, with no one living above or below you, giving you more privacy. There is a nice yard, off-street parking and a cute ice-cream shop with the best home-made ice cream in town only a few doors down. The beach is a close 4 minute walk with no busy streets to cross with a surfing beach only 3 blocks away.
