Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-7)

This small island cottage is the perfect choice for small families or couples looking to get away without breaking the bank. Situated in a quiet neighborhood near the bay, it’s a short 10-minute walk to Ocean City’s great beaches and boardwalk.

WHY YOU'LL LIKE IT HERE: There’s fenced-in side and back yards with lawn furniture, and if parking on the street is hard to come by, you can fit up to 3 cars out back. Beach chairs and umbrella are stocked in the shed (just in case you forgot to shlep yours from home!) Inside, a new coat of paint has freshened up all the rooms, and the hardwood floors have been restored to their original luster. New tile has been laid in the entryway and kitchen. Other details about the place:

LIVING ROOM: The living room and dining area are well lit thanks to west-facing windows that pour in the afternoon sun. An over-sized couch and chair are perfect for curling up with a good book or watching a movie after a long day at the beach. TV, DVD, VCR and wireless Internet are all available in the cottage.

KITCHEN: While it definitely won’t win any awards in the size department, the small kitchen is well-stocked with pots, pans, dishes, cups, utensils and everything else you need for a whipping up a quick breakfast for the kids before heading out to the beach in the morning, or serving up some take-out from one of the fabulous eateries in town. (Menus for many of them are in a drawer in the living room). The kitchen table seats up to 4 people, or you can move out to the dining area in the living room, where the table can be opened up to seat 6.

BED/BATH: The cottage has 3 bedrooms, one bathroom, and comfortably sleeps 6. On most evenings, the southerly breeze flowing through the house usually cools the day’s heat, but each bedroom does have its own window AC unit, as well as a wall unit in the living room. (There is also a ceiling fan in the living room, as well as in the middle bedroom). Each bedroom has a bureau, nightstand, and closet with hangers and hampers; we supply the bedspreads, pillows, mattress pads and blankets, but you will need to bring your own sheets, pillowcases and towels. If you need to run a quick load of laundry, there’s a washer and dryer just off the kitchen.

MEMORIES: Ocean City has been a part of our life for 3 generations. My grandparents owned an Italian restaurant and produce shop here in the 1920’s, and my parents lived in town much of their married life. I have very fond memories of growing up here, riding bikes around town, taking in concerts at the Music Pier, playing mini golf on the boardwalk, screaming on the rides at Wonderland Pier or Gillian’s Water Park, and of course… eating! Pizza at Mack-N-Manco’s, custard at Kohr Brothers, a giant crab cake at Dell’s, or brunch at Bob’s Grill or Oves’. I would like to share this wonderful island resort with you and your friends and family. Start making some new memories of your own (or maybe bring back a few from your childhood, too!)

*** PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS NOT A PARTY HOME. *** We are unavailable for senior weeks, prom parties, or rentals under the age of 28. If you are in one of these groups, you may want to consider some of the lovely hotels on the island, some of which are right on the beach.

About Bay Breeze Rentals

I am an instructional designer for a military contractor in NJ. My family and I love the beach and boardwalk, sailing, surfing and, like most people, treasure the times we can all spend together, away from the hustle and bustle of work and school. Ocean City has been our favorite place to spend family times together over the years.

Bay Breeze Rentals purchased this cottage in 1970

What makes this cottage unique

Location: Situated on 14th street, you’ll be a 2-minute walk to the bay, 10-minute walk to the beach, 20-minute drive to Atlantic City, and 30-minute drive to Cape May. If you’ve got a hankering for a morning bagel or donut, Mallon’s bakery is right up the street. Mario’s Restaurant is one block away with soups, salads, and Italian specialties. If you forgot any necessities, there’s a Rite Aid just 3 blocks away, or Boyer’s Market (4 blocks away) for other food staples like bread, milk, juice, PB&J, and pasta.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had a wondering vacation. We had the most amazing weather and enjoyed every day we had. Your home made everything very convenient and simple. We hardly used our car at all. We crabbed for our first time and enjoyed 60+ blue crabs for dinner one evening! Thank you for the cozy and clean accomodations.

The house was comfortable, and in a nice location. Quiet and relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

The property had everything we needed. There were 5 of us, and it was perfectly located, near the bay, bit still close to everything.

Good location, clean, and very responsive owner

  • 4 of 5

The house is clean and is pretty much as pictured. Very good location on 14th street, about a 10-12 minute walk from the boardwalk. Also, parking was abundant right in front of the house. I liked that the owner was very responsive, helpful, and friendly via phone and text message during our stay.

I was nervous about a house without central A/C in the summer, but the window units kept the house very cool and comfortable.

If you're looking for a modern house, however, this is not the place for you. The very old mattress on the double bed did a number on my back, and the squeakiness was a nuisance. The front door lock and the lockbox were also reminiscent of the old days - workable, but less than convenient. The pots and pans are very old, and there is no frying pan if you want to cook eggs in the morning. Otherwise, there are plenty of utensils, plates, cups, mugs - you'll be washing them by hand though, since there is no dishwasher. Also, bring your own kitchen trash bags.

This house does not provide beach tags like some other rentals, which I think would have been a nice touch. Not the end of the world, but worth noting.

Owner's Response: Dear Jon, So glad you enjoyed your stay at our Ocean City cottage! Wanted to apologize to you about the bed - we are planning to replace it this year with a brand new queen size one and thus rectify the squeaky springs! We are supposed to have a full complement of pots and pans, and was troubled to hear that the frying pan was missing. I will be sure to replace it immediately. Thanks again for choosing our place and we do hope you consider us again for a future Ocean getaway! Sincerely, Maryann Bay Breeze Rentals, LLC 609-314-1577

Perfect retreat for my family

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this cozy little cottage for 4 nights and it was one of the best trips ever. There was enough space for me and my husband and our 7 year old, 3 year old and 6 month old. The home was clean and looked just as pictured. It has EVERYTHING you need to make your stay comfortable.

The only (small thing) I would note is the hose in the back of the house wouldn't turn on (or at least we couldn't figure it out) so we had to wash the sand off in the shower. And the full size bed is squeaks quite a bit. Though to be honest after long beach days most nights I was too tired to notice.

Overall, the stay was just perfect! The walk to the beach was not too long and the backyard was a huge hit for my family. We sat at the patio table for breakfast each morning and the breeze from the bay was so nice.

I highly recommend this house, and I will rent again on our next trip!
