About the property

Totally Renovated Cottage Style 2 Bedroom 2 Bath on the boardwalk & ocean at 4th

Hear the waves from our newly totally renovated in vintage cottage style oceanfront 2 bedroom 2 bath located directly on the boardwalk in downtown Ocean City between 3rd and 4th streets. 1st floor end unit right on the boardwalk and beach in small intimate condo building with only 15 units that feels more like a cottage. Walk out onto your private patio, private 25'x50' deck and watch the people stroll by on the Boardwalk or open the gate and take 8 steps down to the boardwalk and enjoy the beach, beach volleyball, shops, catch the tram or walk to any of Ocean City's main attractions. If you open the screened doors at both ends, the full "ocean breeze" blows through the condo for the ultimate "beach cottage" feeling. All new furniture, aged look plank porcelain flooring, kitchen and baths from just completed total renovation. Beach chairs and umbrella are included so there is no need to rent them and you can be on the beach in about 1 minute with them right off our deck.

Park your car under the condo in the two spots available and enjoy walking to wherever you need to go. Plenty of restaurants, shops and other attractions close by. The town park, tennis courts, playground, ball fields, skate park and no-license fishing/crabbing area on the bay and just one block away.

Total new vintage cottage style includes all new furnishings in cottage style, high end Samsung commercial convective oven, dish washer, platinum steam washer/dryer, microwave, new 50" Samsung Internet Smart TV's in master and living room, 32" in second bedroom w Comcast HD receivers, HBO, Showtime, Netflix, fastest new Motorola dual band Gigabit router/modem Surfboard Extreme 802.11 AC wi-Fi, Brazilan granite, aged look natural ash porcelain flooring throughout.

We are on the lower boardwalk where you can walk to everything including Mitchell's market where you can get wine, beer, groceries or a deli sandwich 24 hours a day or have them delivered (one block). Dunkin Doughnuts, the original Dough Rollers, Pubs, Mexican, Italian, Shenanigans, Hooters, Tap House, shops, kite store or almost anything you would want within two blocks stroll on the Boardwalk but located just outside all the action on the lower boardwalk so it's still quiet. Our condo has a 50' private deck directly on the boardwalk and does not have commercial store fronts in the lower level so we are close to the action but not in the middle of it. Watch the main OC beach fireworks right off our deck.

One block walk to the Ocean City Downtown Recreation Complex (two square blocks) which offers something for everyone. - A lighted multipurpose ball-field along the bay - A small ball-field appropriate for youth softball games - A playground - Ample Basketball Courts - Tennis Courts. The beach in front of us in not overly crowded because entire 4 block sector between the beach and bay only has two low rise condo's and a small hotel at Shenanigan's Pub.

Downtown Recreation Complex is a park ideal for the entire family. Lights are available for evening play. The Ocean Bowl Skate Park is located at the Downtown Recreation Complex. It's a popular spot for skateboarders and inline skaters. Directly on the bay, Chicago Avenue’s Victorian themed “Promenade” area is an ideal spot for fishing and crabbing where no fishing license is required.

Park your car and enjoy the best of Ocean City within walking distance at our beach cottage home.

About Bill Pollock

Joan & Bill Pollock, our sons and their families are entrepreneurs in the energy and golf business who love to relax at the beach.

We live on a farm in the Pittsburgh, PA area and wanted to be able to walk to all the main attractions in Ocean City while being directly on the beach, hear the waves and just relax and enjoy the ocean views where we can walk from the condo directly onto the boardwalk and beach.

Bill Pollock purchased this condo in 2014

Why Bill Pollock chose Eastern Shore

We wanted to be directly on the ocean and have the feel of a being at a vintage cottage on the beach in a small building that does not have the feel of a large condo as a get-away for us, our two sons families and four grand children all of which agree Ocean City, MD is the best beach and community to relax and kick back.

We looked at virtually every beach community on the east coast and decided Ocean City, MD has the best combination of ocean beach, bay, things to do, restaurants, shops where you can sit on your private 25'x50' deck 5' above a 3 mile Boardwalk that is consistently rated as one of the best in the US and enjoy all the action at your door.

We could not find any property that even came close to this location and the relaxed feeling of walking out directly to the Boardwalk and beach with an end unit in a small 15 unit condo with two car parking directly under us. We live on a farm and can't relax waiting for elevators to get in and out of a beach condo or sitting on a postage stamp size balcony with no direct beach access.

This property was unique in providing all of these features and was modern construction that we could update to the highest standards with the complete renovation that was just completed. The concrete construction and front to back condo design of this building provides a unique characteristic of large cool mass and flow through ocean breeze for the ultimate beach cottage feeling with the assurance of a one year old heat pump AC central system if you want it. A covered balcony at both ends of the condo and "no common hallways" were other important items for us.

If anybody who visits us knows of a better place to relax on the OC beach/Boardwalk please let us know as we are looking for more property but we will never sell this one. It's now a permanent member of our family and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this condo unique

The location and amenities are unique for an ocean front boardwalk location creating the feel of a vintage cottage that has been completely remodeled and furnished to capture the feeling of a slower more relaxed life style without sacrificing the connectivity and technology everybody demands today.

We go to Ocean City every year in October. We have stayed in several different places in hopes to find that "one" place to stay every year. Well we finally found it! This place is more then perfect in every way. The condo was spotless. The view was gorgeous. The owner was very helpful and made sure we were all settled in. We look forward to staying here every October! I just cant say enough good things about this condo.. Thanks

Property as described in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Rented for a partial week during OC Bike Week in lieu of the hotel scene. It was great having a nice, clean, and updated place to stay right in the middle of the action. Sitting on the porch each morning watching the ocean and drinking coffee in a clean, comfortable setting was a big improvement over prior years. Being on the first floor made it even nicer as we could enjoy the outer deck to people watch - and this is a great week for that! Parking was easy and covered. Despite the location, evenings were relatively quiet - especially when compared to the hotels. The owner was very responsive and available for anything. I would definitely stay here again in the future.

Unit is as advertised

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the beginning of June. The property location could not be any better if you like to be on the beach and in the middle of the action on the boardwalk. Everything was kept very nice inside and is clean and up to date. The patio is spacious and terrific to hang out and people watch. There were three of us and the unit was plenty spacious and could easily accommodate guests, overnight or otherwise. My only minor complaint was the hotel next door was loud at night with people entering/exiting and partying all night and trucks delivering supples which could easily be heard from the master bedroom. Bill was very helpful with his insights on things to do and availability. We would rent again.

Owner's Response: We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us the first week in June. This is Senior Week and OC becomes home to a large number of student groups that can be more enthusiastic later in the evening. The owners of the hotel are extremely helpful and will take care of any late night party noise. There is a very strict OC noise ordinance after 11 pm as well. The hotel owners cell number is on the list of contacts for the condo and he or the front desk will gladly take appropriate action for noise issues if you request. We apologize for any inconvenience.

If I could give him 100 starts I would. Absolutely helpful. Very kind and understanding. His place was perfect, clean, and you can tell a lot of love was put into it. I look forward to renting from him again.
