4 Bedroom 2.2 Baths, Sleeps Eight. Steps From Beach!
Our home is one hundred and three years young.....if only the walls could talk! Architects today are trying to imitate the style, especially the wraparound porches. Carpeting is new throughout the house as is the beautiful entry floor. These changes of course, led to reprinting the entire main floor and the upstairs hall bath. We also replaced our 102 year old tub in the master, with a great new walk in shower. That led to repainting the master bedroom as well.
Only one block from the north end of the boardwalk, and two hundred steps from the newly enlarged beach, yet only fifteen minutes from the excitement of Atlantic City. All bedrooms have window air conditioners and the downstairs is cooled by the ocean breezes coming through our large corner lot. The huge wraparound porch is one of the best anywhere!
We can walk to ice cream, Brown's donuts, beach grills, the rides and restaurants. Wonderful, yet quiet location.

We spent summers in Ocean City from 1987 when we moved east from California, until 2004, when our youngest of five, had an "internship" in Philadelphia. That was the summer we started renting for a few weeks a summer.
Maureen purchased this House in 1992
Why Maureen chose Ocean City
We had a home on St James but outgrew it as our kid's friends would live with us in the summer and work at the shore.
What makes this House unique
Of course we are prejudiced, but it is a true beach house, not a fancy house at the beach that you have to take off your shoes to enter.

Best house in Ocean City
This was our third year renting this property and we love this house. The view from the porch is magnificant and the upgrades done this year (new masterbath and carpet) only added to the many benefits of this home. We can't wait for next year.
A wonderful place with all the comforts of home steps from the beach.
Our family has been coming to Ocean City for over 20 years. We love this house and enjoyed the location, spacious rooms, beach décor and indeed the best porch imaginable. Ocean views and ocean breezes all a minute walk away from the waves. What was most fun was the colorful décor with the beach themed kitchen dishes, bowls, platters and utensils not to mention the dining room including a table that allowed us all to sit (kids at one end, grownups at the other) together. It was all such fun. We couldn't be happier with our stay and hope to return time and time again. Thanks to the Gorman's for providing everything we needed and for creating such a perfect vacation place for our family.

So glad you enjoyed the house and your vacation! We also like that a beach house looks like a "beach house"! We look forward to having you back!
Another amazing week spent at the "Best Porch In Ocean City", weather was very hot and having the amazing porch to sit on was priceless. The beach is only a block away and you can see the ocean from the porch. Thank you to Maureen for making the trip so easy and for making her home so welcoming.
My family has been renting in OC for years and this was the best house by far that we have rented. The house has an amazing porch with views of the ocean and wonderful breezes, the bedrooms in the front have views of the ocean.The yard is meticulous and lined with flowers and plants. The beach was only a five minute walk (I did not get into my car once after I had arrived). All the rooms were smartly decorated with bright beach colors. The owner was so gracious and made the process so simple. We will definitly be going back next year.
Looking forward to having you back! So glad you enjoyed it.
Only 200 steps from beach with great views. Perfect for family vacation
