About Thomas Speers

Sisters, Brooke and Brittany Speers, vacationed with their family in Ocean City and have many wonderful memories of days on the beach and nights on the boardwalk. Both sisters are both presently on Active Duty, Brooke (left) Major, USMC and Brittany (right) LCol in US Army Nurse Corps. Both have served in Iraq and/or Afghanistan (total of 5 deployments). Whenever possible, they head for Ocean City for Rest and Relaxation (R&R)

Thomas Speers purchased this condo in 2017

Why Thomas Speers chose Ocean City

Brooke and Brittany's parents, Tom and Suzanne Speers, also own a condo in Santa Barbara South. Tom's mother grew up in Ocean City and his grandfather, Capt. Jack Jernee, was the captain of the Ocean City Beach Patrol in the 1930s. So it was natural that the sisters grew up enjoying the delights of Ocean City: days on the beach, body surfing and evenings on the Boardwalk. It is our wish that you too will fall in love with Ocean City and enjoy some R&R at Santa Barbara South

Condo was clean upon arrival. Cool air was already on which was nice with the hot weather outside

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my husband, along with our 2 toddlers, stayed here for a week and enjoyed it very much! It was close to everything, we didn't use our car all week. One of the best parts was that it's only one block away from Drip N Scoop! The condo was clean and perfect for our family of 4. At night we sat on the balcony and watched the Ferris wheel and some other rides on the boardwalk. It was only a short walk to the beach, close enough that our 2 little children didn't complain once about the walk to or from! We had a very enjoyable week staying at this condo!

Great property, challenges with communication

  • 3 of 5

Just enjoyed 4th of July week down the shore at this condo. If we had better communication I would have given this a 4 star review because the property itself met our needs really well!

PROs: Close to everything and short 2-3 blocks to the beach/boardwalk. Great, very clean pool open 10-6. Elevator. Roomy enough for our family of 3 to not feel cramped all week. Quiet in the bedroom- couldn't hear street sounds with porch door closed.

CONs: Was pretty shocked that none of my emails were returned during our entire 7 day stay (e-mail via HomeAway was the only way I was provided to be in contact with the manager). Also, there were absolutely no instructions left with wifi info, how to obtain/use parking pass (without which you'll get towed), phone number in case of emergency, etc. This meant we did without wifi our entire week, took a few days to realize there was a hose-off station in the garage, and couldn't alert anyone to the issues that popped up during our stay (owners, please contact me if you'd like to know about the appliance that malfunctioned!). Also, word to the wise- this property is NOT non-smoking. We weren't able to fully enjoy the very nice porch because of frequent smokers below us that made it very unpleasant to be out.

Now that we've stayed once it would probably be fine to return since we figured a lot out on our own- but first time renters should have a heads up to make sure you get these instructions in advance.

Again, the actual unit was fine- simple, well equipped, clean. Really enjoyed the condo itself.

Cozy meets convenience

  • 5 of 5

I give the location and pool 5 stars! It is so close to shopping, restaurants, boardwalk and beach ! We walked everywhere.

This vacation was for my daughter and I who is 8. We had an amazing vacation and really love the Condo environment. This is our second summer renting from the owners (we stayed at 403 last year) and really love how accommodating they are.

The pool is never overcrowded and the condo is always spotless upon check-in.

A few suggestions for the owners... a new bed, or add a tempurpedic pillow top, add a full length mirror, shelving in bathroom next to toilet (it is more convenient then bending down and going under sink for everything) and add bathroom mats.

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your condo. We had one of the best vacations ever !

A perfect place for two. The location is great, two blocks to the beach and two blocs from downtown. Off street parking is a blessing. Beautiful pool, very well maintained. Will come back !

Comfortable place & convenient location to beach, boardwalk and downtown. We enjoyed our stay here.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, the building is well maintained, clean and well lit. Pool was lovely. Friendly staff. Many comforts like home. In our unit, the carpet could have been cleaner and the living room air conditioner filter changed. A few items needed repair/replacement-probably the result of renting at the end of the summer.

An ideal place to enjoy a beach week in Ocean City

  • 5 of 5

The unit was as-described - a great layout for a couple. The two air conditioners kept it comfortable during a week of 90 plus temperatures and the sheltered porch off of the bedroom was ideal for morning coffee. The double bed was perfect and the bedroom had ample drawer and closet storage for our summer wardrobe. The dining area seated four and the kitchen was well equipped with glasses, tableware, utensils, and cooking gear. Beach tags, pool tags and a covered parking space were included.
