About tristin thompson

Hello, I am Tristin Thompson, 3rd generation home owner to this property. I spent my summers in this house on the 3rd floor while tenants rented the 1st and 2nd floor. I was responsible for cleaning the rentals on Saturdays before I could go ride my bike or play on the beach and boardwalk. My father still uses the 2nd and 3rd floor during his summers. I reside in Kentucky and only get to visit Ocean City for short durations to get the property ready for the summer or to close it down. I love staying there and I love how the entire renovation provided new updated conveniences but still gives me the comfy feel of summer at the beach!

tristin thompson purchased this house in 2006

Lovely beach house!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed staying at this beautifully kept and well equipped beach house. The home is well maintained, with all the amenities to make anyone's stay feel like they're home. The location is great, just a 2 minute walk to the beach and places to eat. Thank you for another great summer vacation in OC.

Very clean and love the sheets and towels provided!

  • 4 of 5

The place is very quaint. Love the hardwood floors and character of the home. The outdoor shower was perfect as well as a spot to wash off everything. I like the front patio bc we could just hang out there and watch the people go by.

I was a bit anxious with using the washer and dryer bc it did not seem to hold a lot. It also took a while to get through a cycle. I like to have my laundry done as the week goes along but it would not stop me from renting again.

The house is close to a great deli, pizza place, and ice cream joint. Browns is right up the street and all within walking distance.

Charming home close to beach

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip back to OCNJ in 6 yrs. Loved this updated traditional beach home. Loved the sunroom and front patio area. Kitchen is updated with plenty of space . We had 3 generations in the home and everyone was comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet. The walk to the beach was only one block and the beach was not crowded. We were also pleased that sheets, towels , toilet paper ,paper towels were supplied, less things to bring. We would definitely stay in this home again. Owner checked in by email ensuring everything was ok .
