Our fam ily stayed in this pet-friendly, lower-level place the last week of July, 2013. It was just as it was advertised and did not disappoint. Pluses are the spacious kitchen and the seating on the front porch.
We loved the location, which is about a ten minute walk to the boardwalk and just one block from Asbury Ave with all its shops and restaurants. Having Ocean City Tabernacle just steps away was and and unexpected bonus. We LOVED the service there on Sunday morning, plus the farmer's market on Wednesday was terrific. I was a little conc
erned that being so close to the firehouse would result in lots of sirens, but that wasn't the case at all. Some minor cons I would mention include lack of food storage in the kitchen (which has lots of counter space but little storage) and one other thing is that there is a rental property directly above, which results in some noise in this unit. In our case, we heard kids running around during the waking hours, but to us that wasn't a big deal. Also the neighbor to the north played his music slightly loud, but it was harmless stuff from the 80's and wasn't too annoying, and was only noticeable when on the front porch.
Parking was never an issue. We could usually snag a spot right out front in the evening; in the day we typically used the municipal lot about a block away.
My only complaint about the listing is that it says linens provided, but you do need to provide your own bedsheets and mattress pads plus your own towels. Maybe this is typical for OC, but since we're newbies we weren't sure. Good thing we brought our own stuff just in case.
It's impossible to list all the nearby attractions we recommend, but here are a few: OC Tabernacle; Annie's 8th Street Cafe; Nonna's Trattoria; Primos Hoagies; and the coffee shop at 9th and Asbury whose name I can't recall.
