Why Jackie Cipriano chose Ocean City

During the summer months, this is Maryland's second largest city! Full of activities, gorgeous beach and well-maintained parks, library, and common areas. The boardwalk is one of the longest on the east coast. World-class fishing, exciting water sports and great restaurants are a huge attraction. You'll never be bored!

What makes this house unique

You'll enjoy a very spacious and beautifully decorated home during your stay at the beach. Private parking and a huge backyard, easy walking distance to many attractions, and a bus that you can ride all day long for just a few dollars. Farmers Market located on 144th St. And now open, just miles away, the new Ocean Downs Casino, with slots galore and electronic board games. You never had so much fun at the beach!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Jackie....just wanted to send you a short note to let you know how much we enjoyed our family reunion at Dolphin A&B.  We especially got a kick out of the Jungle Bathroom!  You did a great job in decorating both sides.

Excellent Home and Location - Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

We came down for a weekend getaway to celebrate my daughter’s upcoming wedding. We rented both units for 19 adults. Both units are beautiful, much more than we were expecting. There was plenty of space for everyone. The location is great, walking distance to the beach and city transportation. We had an awesome weekend. I cannot wait to go back with my family for a whole week. The owner, Jackie, was great to work with and very responsive. I would definitely recommend this vacation home.

Icpa trip to remember always

  • 5 of 5

Myself and some friends and family spend a weekend here. The location is great with the beach right up the block. Restaurants and the broad walk close by. We had some much fun. The house was really well kept and clean everything you would need is right in the house. I would recommend this house to people anytime. And I would rent it again. Our neighbors were really nice as well. We. Went up when there was a car event going on which made the trip Even better. If you are looking for a nice house and good place to get away I recommend this house by the beach and a lot of attractions. My whole party was very satisfied, that we are still talking about this trip. Thank you again for an amazing vacation house.

Perfect setting for large family gatherings

  • 5 of 5

My family rented both units for my parents 50th wedding anniversary weekend and the setup was amazing! The kids could use the third fIoor balconies to move between the two units, which was nice as I didn't have to worry about them going outside unattended. I would recommend the Dolphin beach units to any large family looking for a nice place to stay.

Spacious, Convenient, Perfect for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

I rented both units for our family and friends to stay and celebrate my husband’s 30th birthday. Everyone loved the houses! Both units were very spacious and the setup was great – full bathrooms, great common area, lots of deck space, and fully equipped kitchen (plus outdoor grills). The beach was only a short walk away and the house had a few chairs/boogie boards already, which were excellent! We truly had a wonderful vacation …thanks Jackie!

wonderful beach houses

  • 5 of 5

I have used these units to stay in twice. Both houses are very well maintained and cleaned. The rooms are clean and large; as well as the bathrooms. I absolutely love how the two homes connect from the upper bacony areas. These are great places to rent for large groups or families. Plenty of parking too! You will love it! And Jackie is a great person to deal with!! She keeps things simple for you and will work with you!
