  • Early sixties couple

    "Spent last week of August in this condo. Very clean and well decorated. If you like nautical, you will love it here. All high end decor. Wonderful place to bike or walk without leaving complex. My husband and I have been spending at least one week a year for the last 17 years in a VRBO condo - Sanibel Island, Ft. Myers, and Daytona Beach, FL as well as Jekyll Island, GA and Hilton Head Island, SC and have never found as many extras in condo as here - spices, sugar, coffee, tea and so much more. Golf close by which we enjoyed five times off property. Found some great restaurants nearby - Difebo (Italian) is worth it. Locals very friendly at the Cottage Cafe Bar. Would come back again and stay in this condo."

  • Family Vacation

    "This was a very nice place for the six of us to stay on our family vacation. The villa was accurately represented in the listing. It was clean, well-maintained, bright and spacious, with a nice screened in back porch. We had an internet problem which was addressed and corrected by the owner. Our only complaint was that we had hoped to use the clay tennis courts at the Bear Trap pavilion, but were told after we had purchased the passes, that 2 of our kids sneakers were not acceptable to play on them. They did refund our money so we just didn't use their amenities, and drove to the beach ourselves, which worked out fine. Look for the movie shown at the beach on some evenings - it was a lot of fun!"

  • NO complaints

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. It had everything we wanted/needed. It was immaculately cleaned, convenient to everything and such a quiet/laid back area that it was pretty much an ideal place to spend our vacation. We visited the beach at OC one day but spent the rest of the days at Bethany, (way too many rowdy, loud and even drunk teens in OC) just a much nicer beach over all. It was really nice to have so much room to spread out in while at the property and we LOVED being able to take our dog with us as well.The property's location offered so many options with OC, the beach, Berlin Church of Christ (our vaca church), mini golf and restaurants close enough and yet still not in a high traffice area. We found the kitchen to be adequately stocked, the bedrooms all contained tv's, the deck has a bbq and table with chairs and umbrella. The internet was easily accessible, the pool was very nice without being crowded. The master bedroom is huge and all the bedrooms were comfortable. The kitchen and family room are also spacious. The owner and the agent were both very accessible and accomodating. We enjoyed eating at Grottos, Al Casapullo's and Brass Balls in OC. It's convenient to grocery stores (look for member cards in kitchen drawers, we didn't find them until later in the week but still got the discounts at the stores with a phone number), shopping and of course OCMD. The Bethany boardwalk is small and quaint but worth the visit. Fenwick Island is close by and dog friendly. We loved taking our pup there to share the beach experience with her, even though she loved digging in the sand more than playing in the water. There is a ton of things to do and we would definitely rent this property again."

  • Great house!

    "If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind- this is it! Very quiet and peaceful. Pool is great- kids went in everyday. Well stocked kitchen too. All of the comforts of home. The drive to the beach only took about 5 minutes or so..."

Ocean View Travel Tips

The Advantages of Staying in Ocean View Vacation Rentals

Ocean View is a beautiful golf village community just a few minutes from the charming town of Bethany. Quaint shops and bandstand entertainment give this town a friendly hometown atmosphere. There is a regular shuttle service for those who want to avoid the hassle of parking at the beach. The sandy beach and boardwalk provide endless things to do along the Atlantic Ocean. Relax in the sunshine with a good book, go swimming or enjoy boating and the other watersports which are available. The local area has plenty of small shops and restaurants. Your vacation villa has many facilities within its own community including swimming pools, hot tubs and fitness facilities, allowing vacationers to be as active or lazy as they please.

The beaches and boardwalks of Rehoboth Beach and Ocean City are both a short drive away where trendy boutiques, shopping and a choice of restaurants can be found along the boardwalk and beachfront.

Many of the vacation homes and condos at Ocean View are located on a golf village community, making them ideal for golf-lovers. Golf course views of the fairways can be enjoyed from the condos and golf clubs are within easy walking distance.

Staying right on a resort enables guests to use the facilities including swimming pools, spas and restaurants on-site and to meet new friends with similar interests. Vacation rentals are always fully furnished and equipped to a high standard. Luxury kitchens with full-size appliances make preparing meals for all the family very easy, especially for those requiring a special diet. Choose a villa large enough for everyone to have their own room and bathroom, or share a larger villa with friends and split the costs.
