Property description

Here are a few quotes you can read from our guest book:

“Your home is truly magnificent! This is a dream home. Our vacation was made so much nicer because of it.”

“We were here last year, and had to come back. Your home is lovely.”

'Once again we had a wonderful time in your home. This is our third year and we love it – so peaceful and calm.”

Halo House is, indeed, our dream vacation home - 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, on the water – light and airy and creatively designed, yet practical and cozy with an “at the beach” atmosphere. (Be sure to view the photos we've posted for HALO House and close by amenities you can walk to.)

We share HALO House with renters from June through September and they have written rave reviews in our guest book. It is perfect for a family of 6 people, featuring a large upstairs master bedroom suite with a private deck, walk-in closet, and spacious master bath with a Jacuzzi tub and double sink. The open, multi-level floor plan features dramatic views of a pristine, residential waterfront setting. The high-ceiling great room includes a flat screen TV and DVD, and a sleep sofa for two additional people, for a maximum of 8. Two guest bedrooms with built-in furniture – one with a queen size bed and a wonderful water view, and the second with two twin size beds - are located on the main level down a separate hallway. WiFi is available throughout the house.

The view from the wrap-around main level deck is serene – with a variety of attractive waterfront houses on the perimeter of a large lagoon that leads from the 25 foot private dock to the close by boat ramp and just a few minutes from open water. White Horse park, the “Central Park” of Ocean Pines is less than a 5 minute walk, and features a network of walking trails winding through woodlands to the beautiful St. Martin River, basketball courts and a skate board course for the young at heart, a playground with up-to-date equipment, the newly opened Ocean Pines Community Center, a community Gazebo for weekly entertainment, the farmer’s market, and a lovely craft shop staffed by volunteers.

A slightly longer walk (10 minutes) or a very short drive takes you to the nearby optional swim and racquet club, with an Olympic size swimming pool, a water park for small children, tennis courts, and an adjacent mini-beach with a wonderful view which you can enjoy at no charge. Kayak and sailboat rentals are available.

A 15 minute drive to Ocean City gets you to the Ocean Pines Beach Club with a beautiful sand beach, swimming pool, snack bar, changing rooms with showers and parking (all of which is included at no additional cost with all rentals).

A championship Robert Trent Jones golf course and country club is available in Ocean Pines and a Gary Player golf course adjacent to Ocean Pines, both just 5 minutes by car from HALO House, with numerous other courses in the area within a half hour's drive.

You may choose to swim at any of the beautifully located pools, including the Swim and Racquet Club, or at the brand new Ocean Pines Yacht Club (for adults) or at the Sports Core. (Guest fees are charged for golf and for the pools - except for pool at the Ocean City Beach Club pool which is included.)

Come and enjoy a great vacation in a wonderful setting.

Ocean Pines, close to Ocean City, Maryland's playground, is minutes away from miles of beach, the most wonderful boardwalk on the East Coast, and Ocean City's diverse day and night activities, yet at the same time, offering a retreat into a wooded and waterland haven, where the pace slows a bit. With parks and playgrounds, sailing and swimming, trails and tennis, golf and greenery, Ocean Pines is the perfect place for families.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1992

About: We are a husband and wife, with children and grandchildren who could afford this house by renting it for 4 months while we enjoy it as an occasional getaway during the 8 month 'off season.' While we have been renting the house from June through September for over 20 years, 2014 is our first time with VRBO. Because we live several hours away, we will continue to use our wonderful local property agent who will book reservations, collect the fees, handle the keys, and any concerns that renters may have during their stay.

Why Ocean Pines, MD, USA:
We had this house designed and built for us as the ideal beach area retreat. The design by a talented architect exceeded our expectations - it is truly unique - creative and captivating, welcoming and wonderful. If you are a family of 6 (stretching to 8 with a living room sleep sofa) this is an uplifting, bright, airy, interesting house that our renters have loved. We do look for renters who value a serene, waterfront setting, in a family community, and are happy to do any late night partying in close by Ocean City, less than 15 minutes away by car.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Beautiful house with a dramatic, open floor plan, beautiful setting in scenic Ocean Pines, beautiful view of the water in a placid setting. Close to everything, including Ocean Pines' White Horse Park with many amenities, and a 'no-extra-charge' Ocean Pines Beach Club in nearby Ocean City with its 2+ mile boardwalk. Whitehorse Park is a 5 minute walk from Halo House and, in addition to walking trails through the woods and down to a spectacular water view of the very wide St. Martins River, features playgrounds, basketball, skateboard park, band concert gazebo, community center, boat ramp, Kayak launch, and a Saturday Farmers Market from 8 am to 1 pm. Also, Shore Transit's new Trolley Bus stops at the Ocean Pines Community Center at the entrance to Whitehorse Park - a short walk from Halo House. Check out the schedule and take a 1.5 hour tour of the area, including Berlin (the 'quaintest' little town on the Eastern Shore named the 'coolest' small town in America by 'Budget Travel' in their 9th annual contest), West Ocean City's Factory Discount Stores and transit connection to Ocean City, and a quick stop at the Ocean Downs Casino
