Awesome property, great location, great owners

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here in April of 2016 for a conference because I wanted something a little more "homelike" where I could bring my two small dogs with me. It was very clean and very peaceful during my stay. I was able to walk my dogs twice daily in the neighborhood which is very dog-friendly. There is a dog park as well that is not too far.

The place is very comfortable and clean, and Dawn was very responsive to my needs before and during the trip.

There is great coffee shop up the street from this place as well.

I will certainly stay here again if my travels ever take me back to Ocean City.

Very Enjoyable Waterfront Condo and Pet Friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay at the Garrish Retreat in mid September. The condo is very nicely decorated, well maintained and in a great location. Being pet friendly was a huge bonus for us. The neighborhood is also well-suited for walking (with or without your dog) and was very quiet and peaceful. The 94th street location is very convenient to so many places, especially to one of our favorite restaurants (Liquid Assets) yet removed from the hustle and noise of Coastal Highway.

The condo itself was nice and spacious and provided room for everyone to move about and relax. The dining room table was well-suited for our crab-picking dinner and the kitchen was stocked with all the essential equipment. As the description mentions each of the upstairs bedrooms has its own connected bath which is really nice for couples sharing the condo.

The view from the deck was very cool and while the weather wasn’t the best during our stay it still afforded us a nice place to relax and catch some nice views of the bay. I have to say that the dog was a bit puzzled when he was sitting on the deck with me and a couple floated by in their kayak.

Dawn was great to work with and very responsive and accommodating. I would recommend the Garrish Retreat and expect we’ll be happy to visit it again next year ourselves.

Pet friendly neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

The place was great. It was exactly as described and then some. The neighborhood was pet friendly as everyone we walked past waved and spoke to us and our dog. I was very pleased. The owner was on top of everything, the communication was great, she was friendly and answered all of my questions/concerns prior to reserving. The boat slip was great to have for our 2 jet skis. There was plenty of room to park the trailer. Conveniently,the bus stop was right at the end of 94th street making it easy to transport to the boardwalk which is only 4 miles away. Absolutely no problems! I can't wait to stay again!

Wonderful, pet friendly location!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking to be close to the beach, enjoy some time with your family pet, and not be overwhelmed by the crowds of OC, this is the property for you. The property was exactly as described with plenty of space and two wonderful back decks looking out on the inlet. It is one block from the OC dog park, which is easily accessed using a key card obtained at the local community center. There are separate areas for small and large dogs, which was wonderful! It's also only a short walk to the 94th street beach entrance where dogs are allowed before May 1st! The kitchen was equipped with all the essentials so we were able to prepare meals with no problem, and the grocery store is a short walk/drive down the block.

We had only one small issue during our stay. I had thought we would have access to wireless internet and the owner did not return my email asking about it so we were unable to use our laptop during the vacation. Not a deal breaker thanks to smartphones, but we would have liked to have access to our netflix while away.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

First time at this getaway was last August. The deck overlooking the canal and the bay was magnificent. Having a full kitchen and the large living/dining area along w/ the 2 master bedrooms made my experience wonderful. I would recommend this getaway to anyone. I can't wait to come back this summer.

Car Show!

  • 5 of 5

My family and freinds have been staying at Dean and Dawn's house the last few years over Cruisin Weekend in May and absolutely love it! We have a nice parking area for the classic car to be off the road. It is perfect location and love the home away from home feel. I look foward to staying there every year!
