About Sheila Krusen 610-585-5596 (cell)

We vacationed in OC with our Parents thru the 50's and 60's. In 1977 we were fortunate to came across the property we now have owned for 37 yrs. We have summered here with our Children and now 12 Grandchildren ever since. We use our home year round with family and friends. It's a great family home and we appreciate the atmosphere that OC provides us. We are retired now and our main residence is in King of Prussia, PA which enables us to travel to the Shore very frequently which we do throughout the year.

Why Sheila Krusen 610-585-5596 (cell) chose Ocean City

Come to Ocean City and experience your summer Shore vacation at our bright, airy comfortable home. We are located between 6th & 7th Sts. on Atlantic Ave., 1 block from large guarded beaches and our famous family friendly Boardwalk. We have been renting our 2nd fl. apartment for over 40 yrs. Several of our Tenants have and do return year after year. Basketball, Tennis and Shuffleboard Courts are located within a block of our home. If so inclined, arise early and bike or walk the short distance to the beach and witness a beautiful sunrise over the Ocean. A sight to behold! An early bike ride on the Boardwalk is a favorite of many. Bike north to St.Charles' Place and enjoy a delicious breakfast at 'Brown's' (no relation) and take home a dozen of their famous donuts to the sleepyheads left at home. Truly a treat.

The front porch is a relaxing place to enjoy the cool breeze from the Ocean in the early evening and be mesmerized by the colorful lights of Wonderland Pier's Giant Ferris Wheel. In the evening, a family walk to The Hobby Horse Ice Cream Shoppe, and a visit with Pooh Bear, at 8th and Ocean Ave. is a favorite of many.

What makes this apartment unique

FYI- the entire apartment has been renovated and updated in recent years. Winter of 2015 the living and dining room were painted and had a new Pergo floor installed. New in 2014, the Living room was refurnished with a sofa, love seat, leather recliner and large ottoman. 2015 a Gazebo was installed in the backyard patio area for outdoor dining and entertaining. In 2017, all three bedrooms were refurnished with beautiful coastal-themed furniture. The outdoor hot and cold shower is roomy, clean and enclosed for showering after the beach. We have Internet with WiFi access and supply 5 beach tags to borrow for your convenience. However, if lost you are responsible for the replacement value.

I'm sure you will find that our home has Ocean City charm with modern updates and amenities with your pleasure and comfort in mind. We trust it will serve your needs and provide you with lasting good memories of summer vacations in Ocean City and keep you wanting to come back year after year. Our home is smoke-free & pet-free, and we

rent exclusively to families and mature adults.

Twenty years and counting...

  • 5 of 5

When we started renting at Sandy and Dick's shore home, our children were toddlers and it quickly became obvious that Ocean City was the perfect place to bring a family for a summer vacation. The Brown's house is one block from the beach and boardwalk, which is very convenient for little legs and whoever has to carry the beach supplies. Gillian's Amusement Park is so close you can see the ferris wheel from the front porch and hear the screams from the flume ride. But when the boardwalk closes, all you can hear are the waves crashing against the beach because there are no bars in OC, which means no loud voices or cars at 2AM. It is also a short walk to many excellent restaurants and the downtown shopping area. Parking is never an issue as there is one dedicated off street parking place and many open spots on the street once those who have to drive to the beach and boardwalk leave for the night. The house itself is always clean and comfortable and has plenty of room for the family and any visitors. While all of the above has made it an easy decision to return every year for twenty years, the main influence that keeps us coming back is the Brown family and how they have made their shore house feel like a second home to us. Their friendliness and hospitality is second to none.

When our children became teenagers, we were concerned they might outgrow the boardwalk but there was always something for their friends and them to do. They still come with us as working adults and we look forward to having grandchildren to create a whole new set of great Ocean City memories.

Nice Place, Great Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the week of Labor Day and had a great time. Dick and Sandy were terrific hosts and even brought up some toys for the kids on a rainy day that kept us inside. The walk to the beach is pretty short but you might want your collapsible wagon to carry the beach gear (or tired kiddos).

The home is very comfortable and the relaxed, beachy decor invites you to settle in. We used the outdoor grill and dined on the patio a couple of times. The roomy, covered front porch is a great place to enjoy the ocean breezes and watch the ferris wheel changing colors at night as it turns.

Definitely recommend and we hope to be back next year.

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for a week and we loved it! We have two small children and my mother in law stayed as well. The home is very spacious and incredibly clean. Dick and Sandy are very nice and helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. The home is fully stocked with all the essentials and it really felt like we were at home. It is a short two block walk to the boardwalk right at Wonderland pier with was great since we had small children. It was also a short walk to Asbury Ave for shopping which we always had to drive to before when we stayed in other homes. We loved the porch and fenced in private yard with a grill. If you are looking for a great location with great homeowners you should rent here :) we hope to be back soon!
