About Monique Bottalico
My family moved to Ocean City in 1970, OCHS Grad and happy to have come home to raise my family here. Ocean City has a special place in my heart and I'm sure she will capture yours too. Something that I cherish about this home is the breeze that goes through the house and of course spending time on the front porch. Come, sit and stay a while. YOU WILL LOVE THIS SWEET SPOT!
Monique Bottalico purchased this Apartment in 1997
Why Monique Bottalico chose Ocean City
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION...AND YOU WILL LOVE THIS LOCATION! If you have little ones it's convenient, if you have teenagers it's convenient, if you want to head to AC - no problem. Walk to downtown bistro 1 block, dry cleaners, gym, shops 1 block, church...take your pick, the rides at Wonderland Pier, beach, bay, 4 blocks, tennis courts 2 blocks, basketball 3 blocks. I love this section of town (can you tell).

Park your car, walk or ride your bike for the rest of your stay. Feel your blood pressure going down yet? Everything is here, our rooms are spacious, kitchen and baths updated. This is a large property with plenty of space and she's ready to host your vacation. We've put a lot of thought into hosting families and groups and provide some extras that take the added pressures off the planning list. With most vacation weeks we provide sheets and towels (no need to wash them before you leave either), key-less entry is also a big plus...no need to share 2 keys or worry about fees for losing keys between 10 people.

This property needs a lot of work before it is ready for renters at the rate that they are charging.
Showers are discolored and have mold on shower curtains. Dryer needs to be run multiple times before drying a load of laundry. One of showers is held up by a shoelace. Banisters on stairs are not secure. Seating in living room not comfortable and dirty. Refrigerator I emma gone unusable and has dirty filter. Outdoor shower not enclosed. Very disappointed in this house especially for the price and being 6 blocks from beach!
I just got off the phone with the family who is our current guest. They have 2 little ones and say the house is safe and they have no problems. Just in case my handyman will be there Thursday to inspect the railings. Heavens above, I am speechless. All summer I've received texts that say, "the house is beautiful", "thank you for renting to us", "the house is perfect for our family", "we love the location", "I am loving your porch right now". We are extremely courteous and care about our guests experiences. ONE PHONE CALL would have taken care of any necessary services to rectify situations within our control. Lastly, we are NOT 6 streets to the beach., we are 4 streets to the beach. So already something isn't right here...although it is true our outdoor showers are not enclosed which is on purpose. I know it's not easy hosting large groups Erica's was a family of 12 which is why we put so much extra care in our rental such as sheets and bath towels, guests don't even have to wash at the end of the stay. My house manager even gave up where her car was parked to give them a 3rd parking spot. Well, we tried...
Wonderful Family Reunion!
My family wanted to get together for a family reunion and chose Ocean City as the detestation. We found this house and it was absolutely perfect for our 19 family members. We rented both the house and the ground-level apartment. We had plenty of space to gather, eat, and sleep. No one felt crowded! We loved the front porch and found ourselves missing our morning "porch time" together after we left. It was clean, had adequate bathrooms, and the beds were comfortable. The AC felt good after a long day in the sun and everyone loved the two outdoor showers. The boys loved their "dorm" - the bunk bed room! It was great to have an electronic lock so we didn't have to worry about who had a key. It was close enough walk to the beach and no one struggled with parking. It was right next to the Tabernacle, which had lovely bells that ran Sunday morning and a great farmer's market. Everyone said that they would come back to this house and do this again! We got a picture of everyone on the steps as a souvenir! I would highly recommend this house!
I am so happy your family had a wonderful stay and enjoyed our happy place, that's why we love to share our home! 19 family members is a tall order to host for anyone. I'm glad we were able to make your efforts a success and help build sweet memories that last a life time....We would love to have you back!

Relaxing family reunion.The deck was perfect for evenings in! A great stay!
Peaceful and Charming, I loved my stay.
I felt at peace in this charming home. I loved the L-shaped porch and the large barbecue grill outside. I had my breakfast on the porch every morning and found myself sitting and sitting and sitting some more. It was just so peaceful and calming. There were two private parking spots out behind the house and most days, it was no trouble finding a space right out front on Central Avenue. I have found that there are not many rentals that allow you to take your pets so this was an added bonus to not have to kennel my dog or hire a pet-sitter. As for the inside, I just loved the vibrant paint choices that added to the charm. The beds are huge and comfortable. I said to my husband that you could fit four people in that king. I have a queen at home, so it felt extra large to me, maybe. The beach themes and artwork through out the house remind you that you are at the shore. Even some of the books that the owner had stored in the living room were beachy and shore-like and I felt like the literary choices were for all ages, which was nice. They had the Harry Potter series, plus board games when things slowed down at night or we stayed in with the rain. There was a stroller provided, which came in handy for my five year old niece that came over one day and was "too tired" to walk around at dinner time one night. There was this funny little riddles book that was a riot. We found it in a drawer in the dining room and started reading it and laughed. These were little extras that I just didn't expect and I just appreciated having these memory-builders. I was amazed at the kitchen gadgets and if there was anything I wanted to make, I probably could have, although I tend to be as lazy as possible when I'm vacationing. That makes me think of the restaurants nearby. Off-the-hook good! I love Asbury Avenue too! One of the best things that is one block away and you can see it right from the porch is a church with a park all around it, where people exercise, ride bikes, scooters and skate-board. It was nice to see all of that activity from a distance and the church played hymns on Sunday through bells and it added to my peace. The beach is such a quick walk, 4 blocks. I liked watching the surfers on 7th beach. Wonderland was right at 6th and Boardwalk, so we didn't have to take a long hike for the rides. Plus the bathrooms are on 6th as well. When we got home, we would rinse off at the outdoor showers and kept most of the sand outside. Booking annually
My family of five and dogs stayed in this beautiful Victorian for a week in July this year! We have just recently moved out of state and wanted to include our extended families to visit with us! This was the perfect house for our large group! Very spacious inside. The front porch is wonderful for a cup of coffee in the morning and a drink in the evening! The house is Close to shops and restaurants on Asbury Ave, the Boardwalk and the beach. My family loves OC and we hope to rent this home again!!
Thank you Joanne it was a pleasure to host you and your lovely family the week of June 25 to July 2, 2016 and July 2nd to July 9th. We'd love to have you back!!!
Beach week at Pet Friendly House July 23-30, 2011
Our family spent a week at this charming vacation home in Ocean City. We have stayed at several homes in Ocean City in the past so there was definite room for comparison to other properties. A plus for this property was the two parking spaces in the rear. We had a large group staying in the house and so we would drive a car loaded with the beach chairs, canopy, coolers, boogie boards etc to the beach and then head back home and park the car. Really appreciated it upon our arrival on Saturday afternoon. The front porch was the favorite gathering place in the morning and after a day at the beach. It could have used more seating. We saw some Adirondack chairs in the side yard and moved them on to the porch. We also appreciated the linen service for all the beds in the house. It made room in the cars for the things we really wanted to use during the week. The biggest complaint we had with the house was the lack of comfortable seating in the house itself. The house could accommodate a large group but there was really no place in the house to gather and be together. The living room furniture was very limited and so watching a movie in the evening or sitting and relaxing as a group was out of the question. Seating for dinner was divided between the dining room and porch. The other suggestion we made to the homeowner after our stay was the need for more towel bars or hooks in the bathrooms or bedrooms to get beach towels and bath towels dried between uses. We used the railing on the porch for the beach towels and most of the house guests had to drape their bath towels over furniture in the bedrooms. We didn't bring our dogs to the house and although the house was "pet friendly" the small side yard would have been better for pets if it was completely fenced in. We loved how close the house was to the farmers market that is held mid-week and Saturday morning. The house can sleep a large group but I would not recommend it for a group larger than 10-12.
Thank you for your review. I’m so glad you enjoyed the house and location! This was our first year of renting out the 6 bedroom for weekly rentals.
Your mention of our providing sheets is a great point! I’m sure people planning large group sleeping arrangements will continue to appreciate its value.
The house does have more focus on spaciously sleeping large groups or families comfortably because, honestly, there aren’t many properties left on the island that can achieve that goal for the demand of big families who want to stay together and yet still have the opportunity to fall back into their rooms for a little down time.
The families who brought their dogs were delighted I had gated the beautiful front porch so they could enjoy fresh air relaxation with their pup safely at their side; however, for safety and liability we will not be fencing in the side yard as we need each owner to contain their dogs at each respective unit, for both the 6 bedroom unit and the 2 bedroom unit.
In October we added more towel bars to the bathrooms, which had been updated before last summer; apparently we missed those key items. We are thinking of offering more portable drying racks that can easily be used by guests who need them within their own bedrooms, where there is plenty of space to dry the extra personal towels.
You’re right on with the living room seating … I’ve been looking at a sectional for comfy group seating; however, I may add large bean bags or occasional seating to the 2 brand new full size couches for the 2012 season to keep the floor space open and flexible to meet the unique needs of each family or group. In the dining room we just hosted 19 guests for a sit down dinner on Thanksgiving by adding an extra table that will stay at the property.
