About Sally Matthews

I've owned this unit for over 30 years. My children grew up enjoying their 'beach house' and now their children are doing the same - all 13 of them!!! I've considered selling and buying something newer but have never found a place as great as this one. I take pride in keeping the condo up-to-date and several years ago, removed walls to open the interior, redid all the floors with ceramic tile to eliminate dirty carpets. The furniture is all like new, the kitchen totally redone. With 3 Bedrooms, there's room for all!! Queen-sized bed in master bedroom with bath, two single beds in both the other bedrooms. TV's in all bedrooms and living room. The balcony is one of the largest you'll find with a condo, allowing lots of seating and a table and chairs for an oceanfront dinner.

Why Sally Matthews chose Ocean City

I originally had a property at 39th street, two houses from the beach. It had 4 small efficiency units. This was many years ago when there were no restaurants open after September. Walking on the boardwalk, we would look up at the condo's and dream of being able to own one. We got our chance and never regretted it. We would sit on the balcony and watch the kids on the beach in the evening, playing football on the beach, playing tricks on the people walking on the boardwalk, putting a wallet down with a string attached, then pulling it when someone reached for it! We would all laugh, they would then walk a few paces and join in the fun of watching for the next person to come along and try to pick it up. Great memories and now our grandchildren are giving them and us even more wonderful memories. They call it their 'beach house'! We've had a number of wonderful tenants who return year after year making their own memories of their own 'beach house' for a little while at least. My greatest hope is that they feel that this IS their 'beach house' while they are here!! Based on the way they take care of it, as tho they owned it, I think they do!

What makes this condo unique

The most unique thing about our place is we have the best you can have at a beach place. OCEAN FRONT and BOARDWALK. Really the best for families. Being a small building, there are no long lines waiting for elevators. All of the owners take pride in keeping the property in good condition. After a great day on the beach, there is an outside shower to wash the sand away before heading inside. The location is so good you don't have to move your car while you're here if you choose not to. I provide a starter supply of necessary items like paper towels, toilet paper, dishwasher and laundry soaps, hand soaps, sponges, kleenex, etc. so you don't have to run out to shop as soon as you arrive. I have the best cleaning person in town, tho my neighbor thinks he does. Regardless, the place is well stocked and sparkling clean. A pleasure all around!!

A UNIT WITH AN AMAZING VIEW

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Skyline East starting 09/16/2017 was wonderful. Sally was very easy to work with and responded promptly to all of our questions. The view was great and we would definitely rent unit# 7 again without hesitation. I would give it a 4.9 rating, minus 0.1 point because the balcony door key would not work (maybe a rust issue from ocean mist) and we had to wait for someone inside to open the door or take the front street entrance and use the elevator, forgot to mention this Sally.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your nice comments Terry. Sorry about the balcony door. In addition to the mist from the ocean, I have a feeling that most people use the elevator. Appreciate knowing this so I can fix it. Hopefully you and your family will be able to return. Love to have you.

Very clean and the perfect ocean front location.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 7 stayed here very comfortably. We enjoyed being right on the boardwalk and also the ocean front view was amazing. It's a smaller building so you don't have all of the elevator traffic and the parking was very convenient. It was very clean which was a big plus! Sally was amazing to work with. She will answer any questions you have while you're there. I definitely would recommend this place and my family will stay there again 😊�

Great place for the family

  • 5 of 5

Sally was great to deal with and the apartment was great as well. Very convenient location on the quieter end of the boardwalk. The unit was in good condition and clean. There was plenty of space for the family, the large balcony was great with good people watching views.

We had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property for a group of up to 6 people. We had a family vacation with two grandparents, two parents and two kids, so it worked out great. If you want to be on the boardwalk, and you have members of your group who can't or don't want to actually go onto the beach, this is a great choice because those individuals can spend time on the large balcony and still get all of the sights and sounds of being on the beach (plus great people-watching on the boards!).

The unit is in pretty good shape, we thought the unit was nicer in person than it appears in the pictures. It is on the top floor and while there is an elevator in the building (very convenient for loading in/out and for those who can't do stairs), we used the stairs off of the balcony for going to and from the boardwalk and beach.

There are of course little hitches with most properties at the beach, and this one is no different. The only one worth noting is that in one of the bedrooms, the closet is used to house utilities (HVAC, etc.). So that bedroom has effectively no closet for clothes storage and it was quite loud when the AC was running. Our kids stayed in that room and they didn't seem to mind, though.

I chose to give the property 5 stars because the service from the owner was really above and beyond. Because the unit was not occupied, Sally invited us to check in a day early, and we did! She also provided a gate to put in front of the balcony railing for the safety of our little guy, and she emailed within the first few days just to make sure everything was ok.

There is a good chance we will book here again, though we didn't spend much time on the boardwalk and may consider options further north. If you would like to be on the boards, but away from the very busy section, this condo is a perfect choice!
