Private Homes, South End house description
*Now Accepting reservations for 2013.

It is located in Ocean City's quiet south end on the corner of Merion Place and Asbury Ave (between 47th and 48th St). This is not a duplex, the entire house is yours. This area is considered exclusive because zoning does not allow duplexes - you are surrounded by multi million dollar single family homes and will enjoy less crowded beaches as a result. This 4 bedroom 2.1 bath luxury home sleeps 9 and is sure to offer you a vacation you will not soon forget.
You will enjoy all of the amenities of home and more - High speed wireless internet, multiple DVD players/VCR, highest possible digital cable package with HBO/Showtime/Music Choice/etc, fully stocked kitchen with all pots/pans/utensils, etc., gas grill, even a fax machine, all topped off with an air conditioning system so cold you can hang meat in the house PLUS a 2 car garage for your kayaks/wave runners/wind surfers or maybe even your cars!

IF YOU ARE A NON-SMOKER DO NOT RENT THIS PROPERTY. To our disappointment this entire property smelled of cigarette/cigar smoke upon arrival. Denise, the property manager, could not have been more helpful and responsive. She worked to find us alternate lodging until she could get someone in to clean the carpets. Unfortunately due to a triathalon and beautiful weather, there were no rooms available anywhere in Southern Jersey. We didn't fault her in any way, she did her best to help us out, but it took two days until the carpets could be cleaned and the worst of the smoke eliminated. She had made the owner aware of this situation before our arrival, but did not allow her to do anything until we complained at check-in. His initial emails said that smoking is prohibited in the property. He then changed his story and said that the property was never advertised as non-smoking. He offered us a free weekend in October when the property was not rented, but due to distance and schedules we were not able to take him up on this offer. Even in early emails he indicated that there would be a rebate, but that was not an option later on. The property had a sale sign on it during our stay. It is in serious need of updating and it is clear that nothing, other than painting, will be done while the house is on the market. On the plus side, the property is perfectly located. We always stay in the southern end of OC and this was close to a great and quiet beach, close to the 55th street places to eat and grocery store. If you can get past the smoke smell, you will love this place. If you are a non-smoker steer clear.

My family loved this house, the location is awesome, its a high end neighborhood and the beach is great. We loved leaving the doors to the top floor deck open and listening to the waves crash, there was a gentle breeze that went through the house which was great. The property is very well cared for, everything was super clean and we didn't notice anything that needed attention maintance wise. We have already booked our vacation for next year! There is a previous review stating that the house is for sale, we think the owner took it off the market because there is no for sale sign. Top shelf!

Pretty good location
Pretty good location
Owner is not too keen about attention to detail. Has a local person maintain house but it's not well maintained. The house was supposedly cleaned before we arrived but after a quick look around it was dirty. My wife spent 4 hours cleaning the place. We had difficulty contacting the local maintenance person. It was not a good start to our vacation. There was a water leak in one of the smaller bedrooms. A huge problem is the smell from the creosoted pillars in the garage that went through the entire house..Creosote is a carcinogen, and we were worried about our three month old grandchild. The house is for sale so there is apparently no desire to upkeep and maintain this property. I will not rent this place again and I would not recommend it to anyone.

Owner response: We very much appreciate the feedback, even 7 months after your stay. We use a local property management company who is run by a lovely woman named Denise, Denise is very attentive but if you ever cant get her you can always call me for immediate assistance. We take a lot of pride in the house, its our family home that we give lots of love and attention and if ever something is not right we would like to know!! As soon as we are notified of any glitch with the property we take immediate action to have it corrected. Had we been notified that the property was not cleaned to your 100% satisfaction we would have dispatched the cleaning crew right away. Likewise, if we knew about a water leak we would have sent someone right away. A water leak can cause a lot of damage! I searched all of our e mail correspondence and the only feedback we received was “We had a good, relaxing week at the beach. The weather was perfect. Please let me know the status of the walkthrough inspection.” I send my apologies for the issues you experienced and, had we known about them, I promise you would have been pleased with the outcome.
This was the best vacation we have had in a long time!! My daughters had the time of their lives playing on the beach, making “sand angels,” burying themselves, going swimming etc. Ocean City is BEAUTIFUL, I had no idea how nice of a family town it was. The house was fabulous, very clean and our family loved it that the living area was on the top floor. Every morning I would get up, make coffee, and read a book on the top floor deck. It was sooo relaxing to listen to the ocean waves crash, take in the ocean breezes, and hear the occasional sea gull. The landlord (Dan) was incredibly nice to deal with from start to finish. In all, a WONDERFUL WONDERFUL vacation!! See you next year Ocean City, we are going to make this home a family tradition.

I stayed here two years in a row along with another couple. It was the most wonderfully relaxing vacation we have ever had. This house is bright and beautiful. Perfectly located barely a block from the beach. The sounds of the ocean lulled me to sleep every night. The kitchen had every appliance we could possibly need and cooking in it was a delight. My favorite thing in the house...easily the jacuzzi.

We spent a perfect week at 4712 Asbury in the beautiful south end of Ocean City. The house was all the pictures promised: plenty of space, upscale furnishings, lots of light and almost constant ocean breezes. (This was early season, so we didn't use the A/C.) The "upside down" arrangement allowed privacy for all family members. We enjoyed morning coffee and several meals on the deck watching the waves roll in, just a little over a block away. The owner was easy to work with, very cordial and took steps to ensure that our stay was a pleasant one. Hands down, renting this house beats a traditional top or bottom duplex rental by a mile. In sum, 4712 Asbury is conducive to what vacationing in Ocean City is all about: pure enjoyment and relaxation.

I really enjoyed myself at the Ocean City rental on Asbury Place. The house was gorgeous and the girls in the bridal party and the bride-to-be were very pleased. I would definitely visit again next year, but this time with my family and stay for the week. The beach is literally a block away and it was very private, there were not a lot of people at all in the area we were in. I have recommended it to all of my other friends who were looking for a vacation rental. In addition the owner of the house was extremely nice and he helped make our experience in Ocean City a great one! Thanks!

We enjoyed our week very much. Our family was happy to be so close to the beach. The house was certainly spacious and able to accomodate all of us in comfort.
