Our family just returned from a week at the "cozy beach digs" and we loved it! There were 5 of us in total: my husband and I, plus our three kids, ages 9, 6, and 1. When we first got there, we were immediately impressed with how clean everything was and how beautifully the house was decorated. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need and there are lots of books and games to keep you occupied on a rainy day. Our kids loved the fact that we could sign in and use our Netflix account for our "popcorn and movie night." They loved curling up together on the very comfortable futon in the living room.
The location of the house is great. There was a very nice playground that the kids loved and it was only a few blocks from the house. We had a very short walk to the beach each morning, which is important when you're toting three kids and all of their stuff! After the beach, the outdoor shower was very convenient to have.
We were able to walk to many area restaurants as well, both on the boardwalk and off. Our favorites included: Brown's and Augie's for breakfast, Berenato's deli and Manco & Manco pizza for lunch, and Hula Grill for dinner. Also, don't miss Aunt Betty's and Hobby Horse for ice cream--both are excellent!
At night, after the kids were in bed, my husband and I sat on the huge front porch and enjoyed the very quiet neighborhood and peaceful sea breeze. We could not have asked for a better experience for our first family trip to Ocean City.
