I grew up near Ocean City and went to the beach there with my family for many years. I have many fond memories of my time spent there. I have since moved away to the 'city.' Being near the water and within view of the boats in the nearby marinas makes Marsh Magic the perfect place for me to escape and relax when the stresses of life start to take their toll. I enjoy staying there when I need to get recharged.

Marsh Magic is within walking distance of several marinas -- most notably in west Ocean City: Sunset Marina; Fisherman's Marina; OC Fishing Center; and in Ocean City proper -- the Talbot Street Pier. Even though I do not fish, it is relaxing to watch the boats navigate the surrounding waterways. From the front deck of Marsh Magic I enjoy checking out the 'mood' of the ocean; though not close enough to hear the waves crashing, I can see if the ocean is stirred up with whitecaps or if it is having a calm day. From the back deck I like to be 'entertained' by the marsh. Sometimes the marsh is a sea of green marsh grass; othertimes, when the tide is high, it literally is a sea (and during storms, there can even be waves!). The marsh attracts a variety of birds that come to feed there. I am not much of a bird watcher, but it still fun to spot their white, gray, or brown plumage in contrast to the green marsh grass. It makes me feel that all is right with the world.

GREAT TIME HAD BY ALL

  • 5 of 5
I just wanted to write a review and thank you for allowing us to rent your beautiful home. The group had a great time over the weekend and after they left my two children(10 & 11 months)were able to come down. My ten year old was amazed by the elevator and you were right it did save a lot of back strain.  My family and I just wanted to say thank you again and hope to be back again soon.

LUXURY OC MD GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Magic Marsh with a group of friends in August 2011 for a long weekend. It was a fantastic trip - the owner is great, the house is clean, well-decorated, spacious with tons of outdoor deck space, and an elevator! The house is located within walking distance from popular local bars and restaurants just over the bridge from downtown Ocean City.
The trip to downtown Ocean City and the beach was also easy - the house is just around the corner from a park and ride station; the fare is $1.00 for the entire day, and buses run regularly until 1:00 am. We walked to the park and ride every morning with our beach bags and chairs, and took the bus back in the early evening. We also took the bus downtown in the evening. The bus drops you off one block from the boardwalk. And there are taxis available from downtown to drive back to the house after 1:00 am, but you may need to call for one. We did not have to use our cars for the entire trip (there was plenty of parking at the house - we had at least 6 cars).
We also spent a lot of time at the house - there are two kitchens, fully equipped with pots, pans, plates, wine glasses, etc.; there are also two charcoal grills. It was great - we were able to make group dinners every night during sunset and eat on the deck facing the marsh and downtown Ocean City. There was plenty of space, and we were all very comfortable. The owner was very accessible and provided us with a lot of information about the area prior to our trip.
I would highly recommend this house to groups or families. The location is perfect for everyone - it's peaceful and spacious for those looking to relax, but there are also plenty of bars and restaurants nearby for those looking to go out. There is a grocery store and a beer/wine store within a few minutes drive. There is also an outlet mall located just a few minutes drive away (the park and ride bus also makes a stop there) and there is a casino located about five minutes away, which we didn't visit but may have if there had been a rainy day during our visit.
Our group has been visiting Ocean City for the past five years, and we normally stay in North Ocean City, near the DE/MD border, but we think that this was our best trip yet! The luxury, comfort, location and convenience of can't be beat. We would definitely stay at Magic Marsh again!

GREAT PLACE, GREAT OWNER, GREAT EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
We rented Marsh Magic during the first week of August and could not have been happier with our rental decision. The location, views, and ambiance at Marsh Magic are fabulous! We rented a slip for our boat at the Ocean City fishing center and had great fishing and weather! We are already planning a return visit for next year. This is a great place and we will be back. The owner was fantastic throughout the process

"PICTURES DO NOT EVEN DO THIS HOUSE JUSTICE!"

"Pictures do not even do this house justice!"
  • 5 of 5
As we were packing up to leave after a long weekend, we all wished we could have stayed longer at Marsh Magic! The house was fantastic, and my friend said it right when she said "the pictures do not even do this house justice". I will recommend this house to any friends looking to stay in Ocean City and would look to return in the future.

Working with the owner was a breeze, she was clear, efficient, and quick to respond to questions. Upon arrival, the house was impressively clean and every detail of comfort for her guests had been thought of. We quickly felt at home.

We all remarked at the great location- a short drive to downtown fun, but also in a quiet and safe neighborhood. Easy to stay in the house, with it's ample space, beautiful porches, and great kitchens. But also just as easy to get to the beach, boardwalk, and fun of Ocean City.

If you are looking for a fun and easy trip to Ocean City this house is for you!

LOVE MARSH MAGIC

  • 5 of 5
This was our second trip to Marsh Magic and I can't say enough about it to give it justice. The house is large enough for our entire family and is in wonderful condition. The first thing you notice when you come in is how clean everything is. The owner has made sure to have everything you could possibly need during your stay from all the cooking utensils to movies and books. There are so many different places to escape to when you want to spend some quiet time reading or sitting on the deck watching the boats come in.
We have been to many different places and rented many homes in the past, but I must say Marsh Magic is my one the best one's we have been to. I would highly recommend it for the size, the condition, the overall cleanliness and the kindness of the owner. What more could you want from a vacation home?

Enjoy people watching or biking on the boardwalk, riding the carnival rides, swimming in the ocean, and eating lots of resort food. There are numerous art/craft shows and fishing tournaments held in Ocean City during the year. Within a 5-minute drive of Marsh Magic is Ocean Downs raceway, with live harness racing during the summer. Within a 10-minute drive is the quaint town of Berlin, most noted for being where 'The Runaway Bride' was filmed. Enjoy watching the 'Shore Birds' baseball in Salisbury, just 20 minutes away. Or head to Snow Hill to go canoeing down the cypress tree- lined Pocomoke River.
