Property description

3 Blocks from the beach, boardwalk and all the shops, restaurants and attractions, this excellent cottage on a lovely, quiet cul-de-sac features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and a huge, tastefully fenced-in yard (so Fido can play without worry) with large dining deck, hammock, picnic and play spaces with plenty of shade from the enormous trees.

Very comfortably furnished and thoughtfully provisioned. 1 queen-sized bed in the master suite, 2 single beds in the front guest room, 1 single in the side guest room (convertible to a full or 2 singles) and 1 convertible day-bed in the living room.

Central air, full kitchen and laundry room.

Pet friendly for careful and considerate pet owners for a small, extra deposit.

Rents full weeks Sat. to Sat. No Mini weeks during the main summer season.

Year Purchased: 1995

About: Our mom bought this place and spent many happy years lovingly turning it into a charming and inviting place in to which to get away.

Why Private Homes, Undesignated:
The quiet street and enormous private back yard, all just a few minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of downtown make The Rikkery the ideal spot both relaxing with friends and family in between jaunts to the beach, the boardwalk, the outlets or the hurlyburly of Ocean City.
