Growing up in Margate City,N.J. I have always found the beach and boardwalk my 'happy place'. When my husband Jim and I started to look for a place to 'hang our hat', we felt Ocean City would be the perfect spot due to the family friendly atmosphere where our children and grandchildren could enjoy the days on a boardwalk/ beach, such as I did growing up!

ILENE & JIM MATTHEWS purchased this condo in 2012

Why ILENE & JIM MATTHEWS chose Southern Shore Region

We were looking for something that was 'NEW'....already renovated and the condos at The Varsity fit the bill!

PERFECT LOCATION...(park your car and walk everywhere) it is a building from the early 1900 and was renovated in 2006..BEAUTIFULLY DONE!!! I am a interior designer and this redo was by a great builder, Russell Snow. His attention to detail is impeccable! We have less than 700 sq ft but every modern convenience was not spared! From the planking on the living room ceiling (8 1/2' high), ceiling fans in each room, beautifully appointed frosted glass doors, granite countertops, To all the commercial hardware and fire/sprinkler's all GOOD:) when I am on vacation at COZY CONDO i don't want to cook and the fact that we can go downstairs to THE VARSITY INN and eat is a MAJOR PLUS for me ( French Toast, omelets,tomato soup, home fries, burgers's all YUMMY!!) They close at 2 pm in the afternoon so it is great for quiet evenings on the balcony! The walk to the beach is easy and so close to the food store, restaurants, boardwalk 'fun food', and Hobby Horse Ice Cream just across the street (YUM,YUM) We are close to Asbury avenue for shopping and more wonderful places to eat!

We feel blessed to own such a great place:):)

What makes this condo unique

OCEAN CITY the greatest FAMILY RESORT TOWN by the Sea:) we really ENJOY OUR FRONT BALCONY overlooking 8th Street..( not to mention the OCEAN view). Lots of good energy!!! We hang out all the time and eat most of our meals on the deck! It's great being in a town setting, and so close to the boardwalk/beach!

Daytime, read a book, 'Fun in the sun' or just people watching. At night you can enjoy a quiet/relaxing time on the deck and on certain holiday's watch the fireworks or just take a stroll on the boardwalk! It's a great mix, we LOVE IT!

Had a great time. Property is immaculate, nicely decorated, and very well stocked. Cozy condo is right in the middle of downtown Ocean City. Everything is accessable by walking, restaurants, shopping boardwalk and most of all the beach. Very nice place.

The Best!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second stay for me and my husband at Cozy Condo, and as the name suggest it is cozy, comfortable, and impeccably clean. The location is perfect for walking to the beach, boardwalk and even the Acme is only a few blocks away. Ilene keeps you informed with information about Ocean City, and is a most gracious host. This condo gets my highest recommendation!!!

Best Place to Stay in OC HANDS DOWN!

  • 5 of 5

I can't even begin to explain how wonderfully pleasant the owner, Ilene made our stay for our family of 5. We have a 4 year old, 2 year old, and a one month old.From the moment we contacted Ilene with interest, she was helpful, accommodating, and just made booking very easy. Once we arrived, she met us to give a quick tour of the condo, and she even gave our children buckets with their names on them, which truly was the highlight of my son's day! She was very meticulous about how we kept things, which is why The Cozy Condo continues to be such a beautiful place to stay! The place was immaculate, and had such a warm and welcoming feel from the moment we got there! It is nautically designed, and although "cozy", this condo's use of space is amazing! Full kitchen with standard-sized appliances, comfortable beds, big closets for all of our belongings, and many more features that make The Cozy Condo very comfortable for visitors! There is a Keurig in the kitchen of which Ilene even provided us with K cups! (This was a HUGE hit for this tired momma!). The time and effort she puts into making her guests comfortable is tremendous! There are even games and toys for the kids! If you have young children, everything is child proofed- exterior doors, light sockets, and cabinets, which was a huge plus for us! The condo itself is newly renovated and just a beautiful place to stay! The exterior porch was amazing to just kick back and relax on! The condo is located on the third floor of a building where the downstairs is the Varsity Inn, which serves breakfast and lunch. Ilene even gave us a $25 gift card to it. This was such a convenience for us having small children! We were able to either dine in or get the food to go and eat upstairs. The location of The Cozy Condo is PERFRCT!! I can't stress this enough- PERFECT! It's a short walk to the beach, board walk, grocery store, playground, ice cream shop, and other restaurants! We walked everywhere, and the condo was right in the center of it all! To be able to park our car once and never get it it during our stay was exactly what we were looking for! Traveling with young children is always a challenge, but Ilene and The Cozy Condo made our much-needed time away as a family an absolutely wonderful experience! We can't wait to make The Cozy Condo a family tradition!!

This is our second stay at the Cozy Condo. The condo is always very clean with beautiful decor! The kids' room is adorable; they love it! The room also had a good selection of dvds and games. The kitchen was a well-equiped home-away-from-home. We loved the Kurig; it's very easy to use. The balcony has a beautiful view. This condo is centrally located. The owners are really accomodating. We had everything we needed! We would highly recommend this unit.
