Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath, 1150 sq. ft. condo on two levels, with two oceanfront decks

Spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, and North Ocean City beaches, from this two level Penthouse in an upscale oceanfront building. Indulge yourself in updated, contemporary, surroundings with new appliances, TV's and furnishings. Beautifully decorated and designed in 2014, featuring pristine white marble flooring and dark wood flooring upstairs.

The main level features a convenient powder room off the entrance, state-of-the-art kitchen, dining area with modern lighting, an ocean front living room with a queen sleeper sofa and 42" LCD TV. Large balcony overlooking the pool, and beach beyond.

Walk up the beautifully built cherry staircase to access the sleeping quarters. The bayview master suite has a queen bed, and a private bath. The ocean front bedroom has two double beds, a second ocean front balcony, large LCD TV, and plenty of closet space. The "main" bath, between the two bedrooms, is totally renovated, and includes the stacked washer and dryer for your convenience.

The High Point South building provides a 30' round ocean front pool, pool lounge chairs and outdoor shower, elevators to whisk you up to your penthouse, a lower level storage closet saves you from lugging your sandy chairs into your home. We provide a few basic beach items. Security, parking, and trash chutes, and added full sized laundry on each floor for convenience.

NOTE: We rent to families and adults over 25. No senior weeks, nor graduation parties, nor bachelor/ette parties under 25. Don't ask, as we respect our neighbors and the OCMD noise policies.

All this in a much quieter beach experience than you can get on the boardwalk area. Being on the 11th and 12th floors assures no pesky insect issues.

Daily bus-shuttle loop service takes you anywhere you want to go without dragging the car out of the lot. Dining, shopping, groceries are just across the street.

This is the beach you always dreamed of. Smaller building with only 120 units yields an uncluttered beach experience. Great dining, pubs, gifts and souvenirs are less than 10 minute stroll.

About Bob Zembower

Susan and I have visited OC many times for many years. We consider it the least populated, most affordable, and most enjoyable beach experience we can get to within 2 hours of the Wilmington, DE. area.

Bob Zembower purchased this condo in 2016

Why Bob Zembower chose Ocean City

High Point South is a quieter, simpler, beach experience. Many of the area condo buildings are more like resort hotels than beach homes. Some nearby have more than 400 units and 20 or more floors. There is never a "quiet time". HPS sitting on your deck after night has fallen is truly enjoyable. Soft lights from the other units "round about". The warm glow of the pool, and the lights on the dunes make it divine relaxation.

Easy, safe, walk to pubs, casual dining, fine dining, drug and grocery, liquor, beer and wine.

What makes this condo unique

Low population. Plenty of parking (fee). Door to sand is about 100 feet. Mall right across the street. Either take the elevator to Mezzanine level and walk around pool, or go to ground lever and walk behind building to the sand. Water sports on the bay side, just a short drive or walk. Movie theater just across the street. Denny's for breakfast, although Dumser's is only .75 mile north. (better by far)

Beach chair/umbrella rentals 100 yards north on the beach. Scooter rentals 200 yards north on the hwy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Zembower's were great to work with, provided detailed information about location, directions, and recommendations for local, walk to, entertainment. Having the Gold Coast Fitness Center just across the street was a bonus, and popping in for a 6 pack on the way back from a workout, well, it's the beach isn't it?

Great Beach House. $1million views. Dolphins! We will be back.

Best Stay Ever

  • 5 of 5

Have been to OCMD over a dozen times and this is by far one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. Everything was newly updated and beautifully decorated. The unit was very clean and we felt very much at home. More importantly the owner was a pleasure to deal with and responded quickly to any question or concerns. Would definitely book again and recommend to a friend.

Really great condo! Beautiful location and view... had everything we needed.

  • 4 of 5

The condo was even prettier than the pictures. It was beautifully decorated with lovely furnishings. Though we were mainly on the awesome balcony enjoying the views or step away at the beach this facility had everything. The kitchen was well stocked with anything you need to prepare food. Lastly the condo owners were so very helpful and accommodating! Would definitely stay again!

The perfect place for your family!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was everything we hoped and more. The location was perfect for us. The beach and pool were private and quiet, and THE VIEW! Can't beat the view! It's an easy drive to the boardwalk and restaurants. The attention to detail was evident everywhere you looked in the condo. It was clean and very nicely appointed. You can be sure we'll return. Thank you for a wonderful time.

Amazing Week in Ocean City

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a tremendous time. The penthouse is amazing, and as soon as you walk in, the view is stunningly beautiful and mesmerizing. There is nothing better than enjoying that first cup of coffee in the morning, watching the sunrise, and enjoying the solitude while everyone is still sleeping. The accommodations were amazing, and there wasn't anything you needed that wasn't already provided by the Zembower's. Pool , beach, sand, surf and wonderful accommodations. Couldn't ask for a better scenario. Thank you. The Ericson's

Amazing first time visit to Ocean City.

  • 5 of 5

The location & penthouse were perfect...just far enough away from the boardwalk! Plenty of space for our family of 4 to spread out. Great to have the pool to cool off in after coming off the beach each day. Beautiful beach with huge waves just steps away. Wonderful to wake up to ocean views each day & loved watching the dolphins swim along the coast. Endless restaurants & activities in the area. We would highly recommend this penthouse to all those interested. Bob is a great host & very attentive to making your stay seamless.

Owner's Response: Thank you Lori. It was a pleasure hosting your family, and we would love to see you in the future. There is so much N. OC has to offer, and much of it is a good healthy walk from High Point South. I'm always thinking we left out something. We will be producing a local walking map for next year. Have a great 2017.
