"Our family of 6 siblings gathered in the area with spouses, children and grandchildren. We definitely had THE place to get together. There was plenty of space and we felt completely comfortable. The House was super clean and well taken care of. We enjoyed the manicured yard and deck for our "senior survivor" games. Trips for sightseeing into DC were easy. We chose to drive in but others in our group used the metro. The owner left great informational instructions so we knew exactly how everything operated and where to find everything we needed. Great place. Loved it!"Guest: Ruth L. Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: September 21, 2014View listing
"We stayed 4 nights at the cottage, looking for an escape from DC. The views of the Potomac are amazing from every room. The property manager, Joan, was great to work with and Duke, the local "Mr. Fix-it" was quick to respond to an initial problem with the refrigerator. The dogs (and humans) loved swimming off the dock. Could not have asked for a better setting and the 360 views of fireworks was worth the wait!"Guest: Jim D Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 7, 2014View listing
"This condo was the perfect place for my husband and I to stay. It was clean and comfortable with a fully stocked kitchen. We have both been going to Ocean City every summer since we were kids, and this was such a great location near many of our favorite places. We could walk to the boardwalk/beach and easily catch the bus for any restaurants that we couldn't walk to. We loved that it was so close to one our favorite restaurants, Fishtales. Eric is very friendly and was easily available by text/email for any questions that we had. We would highly recommend this condo, and we hope to stay here again in the future!"Guest: Lauren Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 21, 2014View listing
"Wow the condo was amazing. Our family has stayed in numerous condos and by far this was the best. The booking company does not do this condo justice. I felt that the reality did not know the condo at all as we brought a crock pot and many other items we were told were not in the condo! This condo has everything needed and was clean upon arrival. The view from the balcony is absolutely breath taking as we watched the dolphins jump in and out of the water. The only thing we would change is a king bed in the master. The amount of televisions were a plus for our family. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home away from home!!"Guest: Tara Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 6, 2014View listing
