About Suzanne Gray

I grew up in Abington, PA and my parents brought me to Ocean City every summer for a couple of weeks. I have two grown children, one in college and one living on her own. We have such great memories of this home from playing cards at the kitchen table, to heading out to Kessel's Korner for ice cream. (28th and Asbury.

Why Suzanne Gray chose Ocean City

I grew up in Abington, PA and my parents brought me to Ocean City every summer for a couple of weeks. My Mother came to OC with her family when she was a child so the legacy continued. Finally, after renting for many years, my parents bought this home and it has been in the family for almost two decades. We have such great memories of being here. I brought my children when they were little and we spent precious time with my parents. In most recent years due to declining health, my parents were unable to come to the beach. They both passed away in 2013 and I decided that I could not let this place go. After discovering last May additional issues from Hurricane Sandy, I completed renovated and updated this property. Much of the artwork hanging in the property is that of my Father's.

What makes this condo unique

While it is five blocks from the beach, we are centrally located and a 5-10 minutes walk to the beach and boardwalk. Because there are no homes across the street due to the middle school, it is a very quiet place. Also the bike/dog walking path is on the other side of the street. The quaint front porch is a favorite for enjoying an evening cocktail and watching the sunset. I also love to cook and have outfitted the kitchen with the latest and greatest appliances, and cooking utensils. I have every board game (practically) under the sun and also a card table with chairs if you should wish to do a jigsaw puzzle. The closed in outside shower makes it convenient when coming home from the beach.

Cozy, Family friendly, Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with this rental! My husband and I reserved this house for a weekend stay for our daughters second birthday. The house was immaculate, not a speck of dirt! Well kept and so charmingly decorated. We welcomed our parents for cake and Manco Manco pizza and just had such a wonderful weekend. I would definitely recommend this house to others and cant wait to come back for another visit!! Thank you Suzanne!

Lovely cottage apartment in a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Nicely appointed first floor of a cottage, perfect size for our family of 4 to be very comfortable. Short walk to the beach/boards, easy bike ride or short drive to central restaurants, Gillian's Wonderland and so on. Having a deli/convenience store (good breakfast and sandwiches!), fantastic ice cream shop, and Uncle Bill's Pancake House within easy walking distance is a big plus. We really appreciated that it felt more like a home than a typical rental. My very particular 8 yo son gave our vacation here a rare 5 stars--I agree, and we hope to return!

Wonderful family vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this beautiful BEACH house 2 years now and have decided to rent it again because it is just perfect for us. The owners take great care of this house, and we have an amazing time at their Haven property every summer.

Cozy and clean cottage

  • 5 of 5

The description was very accurate. It was a peaceful area across from a school. It was clean and pretty well maintained as well. It was perfect for our small family. We enjoyed the location being close to the beach and yet peaceful.

Map

Located on quiet Haven Avenue, you are just 3 blocks from Aunt Betty's Ice Cream, Uncle Bill's Pancake house, and Blitz's market. Beautiful 20th street beach is lifeguard protected and has a lovely gazebo on the boardwalk. Boardwalk has ramps on both sides for easy access. Asbury Avenue, between 7th and 12th street is a quaint little shopping area with restaurants, gift shops, and boutiques. Since Ocean City is a dry town, if you would like to have an adult beverage outside of the cottage, there are many nice restaurants in Somers Point just 10 minutes away. Atlantic City is about 25 minutes away if you would like to see a show or gamble. Heading south down the Ocean Drive, you can experience Strathmere, Sea Isle City, Avalon, Stone Harbor, and Cape May. Cape May is about 40 minutes away but has a different feel to it. Many of the buildings are 100-200 years old. Abraham Lincoln stayed in Congress Hall and besides the history, there are many quaint shops and restaurants along with horse-drawn carriage rides. Great for a cloudy/rainy day.
