About Greg Gatesman

We are a typical all American family of 5. Our life is busy with work and activities for our children, etc. Ocean city has given us the amazing family time we need to relax and enjoy life together as a family. Our kids are ages 9, 7, and 3. We love ocean city! The time together on the beach, riding bikes, and walking the boardwalk creates memories that we will have forever.

Greg Gatesman purchased this condo in 2013

Why Greg Gatesman chose Southern Shore Region

Location, location, location. The views from the decks and the view from the family room are awesome. Complete relaxation is felt upon entering the family room of the home. You can park your car and do not need to get back in your car for the entire week. The home is steps from the beach which makes it convenient to go back and forth to the beach for the needed snacks, naps, (or in our case potty breaks). The proximity to the north end boardwalk makes it a easy to stroll up and down the boards for some activities or treats. 2nd street is nice because you are close to the action, but still a short walk away from the fun filled busy part of the boards (starting at 6th street).

What makes this condo unique

This homes 2 master baths are a nice feature for multiple families that want to vacation together. The large number of beds in the bedrooms make sleeping accommodations easy to plan for multiple families. Two decks allow for an amazing outside experience at sunset or during the quiet early morning. Particularly the front deck with a large table allows your family to sit together to enjoy meals to outside while taking in the fresh ocean breezes. In the evening relax with a game of cards, a glass of wine, a good book as you watch the moon reflect on the ocean waves.

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

The place is amazing. The updates are beautiful and the view is worth every penny! We would definitely consider staying here again. The owner is awesome to deal with and is attentive to any needs that arise. I've been coming to OCNJ for 34 years and this house tops all the others.

Excellent location, comfortable accommodations, great kitchen, plenty of bathrooms

  • 4 of 5

This place was exactly what we were looking for (although one more queen bed would've been nice). Located right on the boardwalk, 2 minutes from a great little breakfast place (Brown's), a 10-15 minute walk to Wonderland (rides, games, shops and junk food galore) and a 5 minute drive to the grocery store and downtown. The view was fabulous, the parking was convenient and with a laundry in the unit, you don't have to worry about bringing tons of clothes or having wet towels/bathing suits. The whole experience was great and we would most definitely rent this property again in the future.

Amazing view but has maintenance issues

  • 3 of 5

A family member rented this for 3 families to stay.


Amazing view

great location

outdoor shower

updated kitchen


gross "bugs" in the hallway

two out of 3 showers had significant leakage issues

laundry room is shared in a random maintenance room

2 of the rooms have only one twin bed, the trundle bed is a joke no one would want to sleep there

not the cleanest

although the views are spectacular i would not stay here again.

Owner's Response: Esen, thank you for your comments. I am sorry you had less than an ideal experience. We take all feedback and try and correct immediately. With regards to your comments, I wanted to update you. I did get a note from another member of your party regarding the shower doors. We promptly had those tightened and silicon sealed after your stay.. I also discussed the common hallway with the other owners. We now have the Cleaning service cover this common space as well. With regards to the gross bugs, I can only ensure you as part of the spring and fall maintenance of our home, we always have it treated. If there were any issues, I wish you would have notified means I would have had a service come out asap. Anyway,I apologize again for your experience and hope you will consider giving our home another chance. If you would like to discuss more, let me know and I will give you a call. Kind regards, Greg

Ocean City
Car: not necessary

Ocean city is voted as the #1 family friendly resort in America. The boardwalk area is loaded with fun family activities for all ages. The younger ones will enjoy Wonder Land Pier and Castaway Cove amusement parks. Kids of all ages will enjoy a day at the water slides. Numerous miniature golf courses, go cart rides, and other games and activities are available. In the morning on the boardwalk, enjoy a surrey ride with the family or ride bikes to breakfast. A multitude of food choices exist from traditional boardwalk treats like cotton candy, popcorn (Johnson's is our favorite), cheese fries (from boardwalk fries), funnel cake, and the famous Manco & Manco Pizza. For activities off the boardwalk, we recommend the 34th street playground, the tennis courts on 5th street, the sports and activities on 5th street (beach volley ball, basketball, track, shuffle board, etc.). Visit Asbury street for an variety of shops and restaurants in the traditional downtown area. Last but not least, what is a summer resort without ice cream...on the boardwalk we love soft serve at Kohr Brothers and hard ice cream at George's. Off the boardwalk, we like the Carousel ice cream parlor on 4th street and hobby horse 8th street. You can enjoy fishing, boating, or parasailing from many locations in the Bay Area.
