Thank you to all of our wonderful guests coming to stay with us this summer! We are overjoyed to share this beautiful summer home with you!

Ocean City is America's Family Beach Resort! Relive your own childhood memories at the Jersey Shore during the summer, whether it was playing on the beach, strolling along the Boards or getting hit by that refreshingly unanticipated wave. Attractions and amenities are spread conveniently within and alongside Ocean City, so that no matter the day, fun is just a hop, skip, or stroll away.

This pet friendly three bedroom, one and a half bath first floor owner's suite is located in the heart of the Garden District of Ocean City. Known for its less crowded streets and low density housing, the Garden District has its own private beach, making sure you have lots of space to enjoy the sand and ocean during your days at the beach. We are only a few blocks from the famed Ocean City Boardwalk and a short stroll to the Morningside Beach, known for its beautiful sunrises. Our beach is lifeguard protected. We do allow smoking at our property, we only ask that guests try to smoke outside in the beautiful backyard or near an open window. Each off-season the entire property gets a deep cleaning to help alleviate any lingering orders either from pets or smoking. Steam cleaning, wall scrubbing, fresh coats of paint and an ionizer are all used to ensure that each guest experience is the best.

Please note: This will be a Non-smoking property for the 2018 Summer Season.

Your vacation rental is equipped with all the comforts you would expect at home. It boasts a spacious living room with an open floor plan. Brand new living room furniture, a 55'' LED 4K SMART TV, cable with DVD player make this living area just like home. A brand new dining room table seats four but can be expanded with the enclosed leaf to comfortably seat six.

The large kitchen is fully equipped with a full size refrigerator, stove, oven, toaster, a new Keurig 200 coffee maker and new microwave. And it wouldn't be a Jersey Shore kitchen without the blender for those frozen treats on a hot day! A full size washer and dryer are also provided.

The master bedroom in your beach condo holds a queen size pillow top four poster bed with its own 50'' flat screen LED television and cable. The second bedroom has two pillow top twin beds and a 32'' flat screen LCD television that can be hooked up to any gaming system you would like with the use of any HDMI input. The living area opens onto a beautiful sun room which is furnished with a brand new queen sleeper sofa with an upgraded mattress and feather bed, making it a luxuriously comfortable sleeping arrangement and an armoire with closet and drawer space. This sun room can be completely closed off by using the frosted glass doors, creating a third bedroom in just seconds. WIFI service is also provided.

The full bath includes a Jacuzzi tub with jets, shower, vanity, storage cabinet and toilet. The half bath includes a vanity and toilet making sure no one ever has to wait in line for the bathroom. A small out of the way closet holds your beach chairs, beach bags and assorted beach toys. Beach tags, beach chairs and an umbrella are provided at no charge for your convenience. 2 adult sized bicycles, great for exploring Ocean City can be made available upon request with no additional fee.

This beach home has a beautiful backyard that includes a family size grill, enclosed outdoor shower, a six person Jacuzzi and a comfortable outdoor dining area, meaning you and your family can enjoy the Jersey Shore at more than just the beach. The entire yard is fenced in making it easy to let your puppies out to play. You can also keep any bikes you bring or rent on a separate brick patio area.

Convenient parking for your vehicle is also provided directly in front of the home.

A complete Towel and Linen Package can be reserved for an additional $100 fee and includes all linens, towels and Beach Towels which makes packing for your week at the Jersey Shore a little lighter. Of course, all guests are welcome to bring their own linens and save a little extra money for the boardwalk rides!

Great for family with dogs

We had a great time at the beach house. Our 2 labs joined us and it was wonderful to have the backyard for them to hang out while we enjoyed dinner outside. We were just a short walk to the beach and boardwalk. Perfect getaway for our family! Thank you for opening your home to us.

The photos accurately depict the property. However there is no TV in 2nd room, as described.

  • 1 of 5

The property was nice but marketed as NO smoking permitted inside of the home. On the day we arrived for the week, the interior of the home had an overwhelming odor of cigarette smoke. The odor was off putting and when we returned home after our week stay, our clothes, luggage and beach bags smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. All clean laundry had to be re-washed and luggage aired out on patio. Very disappointed with how our concerns and disappointment was handled. While the owner was nice and did apologize, some sort of peace offering would have gone a long way in assuring a return. renter.

Owner's Response: I am obviously disappointed at this review. One star intimates that nothing went right at all on your vacation. This is and always has been a SMOKING property. I received complaints from neighbors who did not appreciate the early morning (1am) loud noises coming from the backyard with jacuzzi so there appears to be at least several nights that went well. All photos are current and properly describe this property and everything in it. There is no TV in the second bedroom, there never was. There are 2 TVs total in this property. If there is an additional TV described in this property it would only be used for game systems as there is no cable for the other bedrooms. No one in 3 years felt that there should be another TV. The text message I received from this guest hinted at a poor review if I did not compensate for any perceived short-comings. I did not refund any extra money and instead asked that the guest be 'honest' in their review and all issues would be looked at and examined to help make future guest's stay great. I do not feel a 1 star review is honest. This property will be a SMOKING and pet friendly property next year as it has been for the past 3 years. I do not restrict smoking at this property. I do encourage smokers to do so outside but I do not have any smoking rules as we are again,,,a smoking property. I do not know how any compensation short of a complete refund could have caused you to come back next year, let alone add a second star to such a review. Good luck in your future travels and i encourage you to look for Non-Smoking properties.

My family had a GREAT week. This home had everything we needed, the beds were all very comfortable, walking to the beach was convenient and easy, and the jacuzzi was perfect. We loved the fenced in backyard for our dog and just to relax in. We would definitely rent this home again.

Gardens Location

  • 2 of 5

We stayed in the owner's suite, downstairs which was lovely and fully outfitted with everything we needed inside and out. The backyard was delightful on nice days, otherwise being out in the rain would have been the only option as the front porch is upstairs for the other tenants. The house is modern and has super high kitchen counters which is great for us tall people! The biggest drawback, is the smell of smoke. If you don't like the smell of cigarettes in your rental, then this probably isn't the place for you. As soon as we walked in we smelled it and proceeded to open all the windows in the house, for the whole week. The smell penetrates everything and didn't dissipate over time. We knew that smoking was permitted outside and assumed that it would be fine. However it seems that the year-round occupant is a smoker and so it is a prevalent smell. If it doesn't bother you, then you will love this house. Perfect location in the Gardens, nicely furnished and otherwise quite comfortable. Wish we could rent it again but won't due to the smoke.

Owner's Response: Mindy We are exceptionally disappointed by the two star review considering everything that you have stated in this review is positive except for the "smoke smell" on a rental property that is listed openly as a smoking property. Each year we freshly paint, dry clean all curtains, provide new linens, and change pillows and mattress protectors for every guest. We pride ourselves on being exceptionally forthcoming in our description, our photos and our pricing. Perhaps in the future you will more carefully consider the property you book with and check the options offered, especially those that say "pet friendly" and "smoking."
