About Steve Kearns - OWNER
Hello, I am Stephen Kearns, a Broadway and Concert tour manager. I am 'on the road' much of the year. Over the span of my career, I have managed Broadway and family entertainment shows including the 'Grease' National Tour starring Frankie Avalon, 'The Will Rogers Follies' National Tour starring Larry Gatlin, 'Sesame Street Live', 'The Wiggles', and many more. I am currently managing 'The Color Purple' National Tour, and I am one of Frankie Avalon's booking agents. That's a picture of Frankie and me in San Diego.
Steve Kearns - OWNER purchased this House in 2004
Why Steve Kearns - OWNER chose Ocean City
My Grandparents owned a summer cottage in Ocean City. We spent our summers 'down the shore.' When it came time to buy a home, I chose Ocean City. My friends in show business can easily visit from NYC, and its a great location to host friends and family.
What makes this House unique
One of the things that I love about our home is the fact that there are two large living areas separated by French doors. Most properties in Ocean City only have one great room. The place just has a good, comfortable vibe. Not your typical OC rental.

The property is exactly as the pictures. It’s clean, tidy and gives a “homie” vibe. There were 6 of us and we fit perfectly. This was our first HomeAway experience and I couldnt have asked for a better stay. It was only a few block from the boardwalk which was great. The house is equipt with beach tags for 6 guest, beach chairs and play toys for kids. Surround system was nice for our movie night. Stephen was at our fingertips if we had any trouble at all. (Which we did not). We did not need anything while we were there cause the house had everything we would need. With the exception of linens for the beds which we brought along with us. We enjoyed the natural lighting in the house and the ability to adjust the lighting in the house to our liking, which goes along way when you suffer from migraines the way I do. Overall a good experience and I’m looking forward to staying here again. Definitely recommend!!!
My family and I enjoyed two days at Steve's home this past weekend for the Easter holiday. Everything about his property was perfect! The location is great and his home is so well kept. Steve was also a wonderful host. He was so helpful with any questions I had and was very welcoming and accommodating. Most importantly, my family and I are huge animal lovers and we all have dogs. Steve's property is pet-friendly, so being able to bring our dog children with us this weekend was so special and made us so happy. I highly recommend Steve and his property for a great time in OCNJ!
Great rental property!
Very clean and well stocked home. The owner has thought of everything down to beach chairs and sand toys and boogie boards for kids. House is beautifully decorated. It is a very convenient location. Just about a 4 block walk to beach and a street over from Asbury where there is some great shopping. Owner is unbelievably fast getting back to you with any questions you have about places to go, or any questions about the rental.
And best part was being able to bring our big furry baby!
Great location and pet friendly
We loved the fact that you could walk anywhere. The beach, boardwalk, shopping, and even dunkin donuts were all within walking distance. Plenty of room inside for 8+ people and the back deck was great for entertaining.
Close to everything! No need to drive anywhere!
Steve was an excellent host and spent a few minutes to introduce himself. He was available 24/7 by cell phone. The location was perfect! Only 5 blocks to the beach/boardwalk and right behind downtown OC. The two floors were nice and big! We had two little ones and 4 adults with plenty of room to spare. Highly recommend!
A fantastic place
We just returned back from a week's stay here; my wife and I and our 3 daughters absolutely loved the house, location, and the time spent. The house is clean, well kept, and extremely functional - especially for kids. Short walk to the beach and boardwalk was easy to navigate, we also loved how close we were to the shops, Starbucks, and many resturants. There is also a great authentic Mexican resturant a few yards away. The owner of the house Steve was great to work with and made sure our expectations were met. Highly recommend this house.
