About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Cozy Paws Beach Cottage: A charming, 4-bedroom single family home with a fenced yard this close to the beach is not a typical Ocean City rental. Walk three blocks from the ocean side of West to enjoy the beach or relax in the shade of the large gazebo at the 20th street boardwalk entrance. This is the peaceful, residential section of Ocean City's boardwalk, and is perfect for walking, jogging, or morning bike riding along the ocean. Stroll up the boards to the amusement parks, miniature golf, surrey rentals, shopping, food, fun and festivities that make Ocean City 'America’s Greatest Family Resort.'

Cozy Paws Beach Cottage is reminiscent of what an Ocean City vacation used to be, with the added comforts of modern amenities like central air, flat screen HDTV, an iPod docking station and wireless internet access. It is beautifully decorated, cozy, comfortable and well-maintained. The front porch is a nice place to read a book, share conversation or wait for friends to arrive.

The back of our property is a rare treat for Ocean City vacationers. The deck off of the dining area features a table, chairs and umbrella in a landscaped, fenced yard. Relax, play yard games or sunbathe outdoors even when not at the beach, and enjoy the gas grill for memorable family cookouts. An outdoor storage room with key is available for bikes and beach gear. The large outdoor shower with custom Sunbrella fabric enclosure by Brown's Awning has both hot and cold water.

Please visit our Cozy Paws Beach Cottage website, and like us on our new Facebook page for Cozy Paws Beach Cottage.

Our beach house is 'small pet friendly.' A small to medium sized (up to 45 pounds), well-behaved family dog or two very small (under 20 pounds) dogs will be considered.

About The Owner

We love to spend time in Ocean City, and we hope to find other families who will enjoy making their vacation memories here as well. With three kids and a dog, we find our cozy beach house to be ideal for family getaways. We enjoy the island life, special events and long walks on the beach in all of the seasons throughout the year.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Southern Shore Region

Friends introduced us to Ocean City when our kids were little. We fell in love with the beauty and family friendly atmosphere of the island, and made it our annual summer destination. A few years ago, we started looking at condos near the beach, but never quite felt comfortable with co-owning the building and land with people we didn't know. When we came across a well-maintained single family in a great location, we knew that we had finally found the perfect place for us.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefit of staying in a single family home with a yard is that you have your own private space, and it feels like a real home-away-from-home. With most rentals this close to the beach and boardwalk, other people vacation in condos or apartments directly above or below your unit, and share the yard space if there is any. Plan your next trip to our quaint and comfortable cottage, and enjoy exclusive use of the property for your family's vacation in Ocean City!

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this adorable home for multi-weeks in each of the last two summers. We are former residents of Ocean City who now live in Florida, and want to come back to Ocean City each summer to spend time with our children and grandchildren. This home has everything. It has charm, is tastefully decorated, and is the most well-equipped unit we ever rented. It is truly a home away from home. The location and beach are great. We loved the rear deck and fenced rear yard where our Welsh Corgi loved to play. The large outdoor shower is great to clean our young grandkids, all at once, after a long day at the beach. The owners are great to work with and are extremely responsive. We highly recommend this home and we will undoubtedly return for future vacations.

Owner's Response: Dear Jim and Ellen, receiving your kind review brought tears to my eyes today. It means so much to me that you feel like the beach house is your home away from home in Ocean City. I know that you care for the cottage as if it were your own while you are there, and the appreciation certainly goes both ways. I was nervous when I started doing rentals back in the summer of 2010, but wonderful guests like you through the years have made it a pleasure to share our vacation home with others. Thanks so much, and I hope that you will be able to return soon.

Vacation Lodging

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our little cavachon just returned from a week at this home. I can only repeat what over reviews are saying. The location is excellent, the house is very clean and decorated so cute. Last but not least how wonderful to be able to take our dog and have a fenced in yard for her. We had a great time at this home and hope we are able to return sometime for another vacation. You will be very happy staying at this home. I also enjoyed walking the neighborhood very much and seeing all the other beach homes that are so meticulously maintained. Very pretty neighborhood.

Peaceful and Charming - Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough wonderful things about this lovely, single-family home! It was very clean, tastefully decorated and incredibly comfortable. The fenced-in yard was an amazing plus for our four-legged friends and a rare find in Ocean City. We enjoyed sitting on the back deck after morning walks down the boardwalk (after delicious breakfasts at Uncle Bill's Pancake House, of course!) Close to the beach, but perfect for off-season rentals, if you're looking for some quiet time to get away. Owner is very responsive and helpful. This house is a must-see!

Outstanding Single Home - LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!

  • 5 of 5

After staying in condo's and apartments for many years prior my wife and I then found this beautiful, single house in our exact favorite location in Ocean City, NJ. We felt very at home and it was absolutely amazing not having neighbors above you or below you if it were a condo. The front porch was great for early morning talks and music playing from the living room. The living room and kitchen and dining area had a great open flow to it that made it extremely comfortable. And who can forget that backyard for our pug Ernie! Ernie had an amazing time running around the yard and greeting neighbors as they went for their morning walks and afternoon bike rides. This home is the exact reason my wife and I love Ocean City, NJ. The house, street and beaches are all clean. The neighbors very friendly. And the location being so close to everything. This is a home to not look over. I would like to thank the owners for not only making sure that our week in Ocean City was perfect and memorable but for opening their doors and hearts and sharing their home with so many familes to ensure we are all able to experience Ocean City with the best accomodations one home can offer. I look forward to many more years and memories at my new and only favorite home in Ocean City.

Vacation Extraordinaire in Ocean City

  • 5 of 5

I can't stop saying too many positive things about my stay in your home. The neighborhood was peaceful, the house was immaculate and cozy comfy. I felt as if I were home. My family and I didn't know what to expect being it our first visit to Ocean City. We were all pleasantly surprised and the deck on the back of the house was an extra added plus. We spent most evening sitting on the deck and a couple mornings too. From the beach to the boardwalk and all the shopping we did, the stay in your home to relax in after a fun filled day was quite extraordinary. Looking forward to staying in your home again on our next visit!

We look forward to having your family back again.

Another Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

You can sum up this beach house as cute, comfortable and clean, clean, clean! The fenced yard out back is a total bonus for a place at the shore, especially so if you are like us and wish to bring along your little four-legged family member to join in the fun. We've been here twice now, and we really feel that this is a special place in Ocean City. The owners are very nice people, too. They care about your vacation and make you feel like welcomed guests. Enjoyed it so much that we didn't want to go home when our time was up!
