About Jean & Jerry Colston

Jerry and I grew up in Baltimore and have been together since we were teenagers. We were married shortly after my high school graduation and have been happily married for 50+ years. We have 3 children and 8 grandchildren. We all love the beach!!

Jean & Jerry Colston purchased this townhome in 1999

Why Jean & Jerry Colston chose Beach Place North

When we started looking for a beach home, we looked at all types of properties including several very nice condos both low and high rise units. They just didn't have the beachy feel. Long dark hallways leading to the units, limited parking for guest, no where to store beach toys, boogie boards, etc. When we saw Beach Place North townhouse, we knew right away this was what we wanted! Easy parking, pool just outside our back door, grills and so convenient to the beach. No need to even access the street to walk to the beach which made it safe for our grandchildren.

What makes this townhome unique

Easy access to the beach, pool, parking for 3+ cars, grills, rear enclosed deck for safe storage of boogie boards, towels, beach toys, private shower/changing room on rear deck with hot & cold water and centrally located between south & north Ocean City. Also convenient to bus and many local restaurants, pubs and mini golf.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I had a great time and the condo (townhouse) was great! Could not get much closer to the beach. Lots of things to do and not far from the house. I hope we can do it again sometime. When is the best time to book for 2012?

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in O.C. The townhome was just as described and had everything that a family would want, including sand toys, chairs, beach umbrella, etc. The owner was very responsive and when we had a question upon arrival, called us immediately, even though it was late evening. The beach is about 100 feet away and absolutely beautiful. You can walk to The Dough Roller, minature golf, ice cream, mini market, and just about anything else. The bus stop is a half block away to take you to the Board Walk so if you don't want to drive, you can park your car and take the bus! Love Beach Place North and definitely return.

Wonderful Beach Rental

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from our week at this rental and it was fabulous! There was plenty of room for our family of 6 adults and 2 kids. Being steps from the beach was awesome as we could easily come back for lunch, naps, etc. The house has everything you could need and it's also in a great location (near lots of restaurants, things to do, etc). The pool was clean and hardly ever crowded. We loved it and will likely return.

Beautiful unit!!

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed with the quality of the unit, furniture comfortable. I am confused by the previous feedback as, we did not experience any of the issues the previous client experienced.We were able to view the ocean and th pool from the unit even though this is not an ocean front unit. We have been renting beach place townhouses for the last several years and by far this one has bee the nicest. It had everything form wi-fi to games, beach supplies etc. The owners are among the sweetest people too, they called midweek to assure all was well, that was a first. The only problem I noticed is that I did not want to leave....

Looked nicer online!

  • 2 of 5

The best thing about this place was location! Very close to the beach. However, I was not happy with several things including the third bedroom in basement. The bed was horrible! The electric was only 100 amps and every time we turned on our hairdryers the circuit blew! Had to figure out how to reset the circuit! When we took a shower, water was dripping from the kitchen ceiling! Didn't know how to stop that. Beach umbrella was broken...take your own. We planned on taking our own, but they said we didn't need to. Air conditioning system is directly outside basement bedroom. It is extremely loud when it kicks on. Had hard time sleeping in there. I won't be staying here next year!

Owner's Response: Jennifer, we are very sorry that your visit was not a pleasant one. We do our best to leave the house in good condition and try to leave a few extras so that our guest don't have to bring beach chairs, beach toys, umbrellas, etc. We had no idea until your visit that the umbrella was broken. We are replacing it. We have not had any complaints until now about the lower level bedroom, especially the bed. It is difficult to find a mattress that pleases everyone ( to soft, to hard). Our family and friends use the house during the off season and didn't have a problem. We will certainly check with other guest and if we find the same complaint, will replace it. As far as the air conditioner unit, most of the homes have the units in the same place. It was set up that way when we purchase the house, so all we did was upgrade the unit. Our granddaughters bring their friends to the beach several times using hairdryers and curling irons and have not had a problem with the circuit breaker, but we are definitely going to check into that problem. We had hoped that after we talked and told you how to reset the breaker, that your problem didn't continue. As far as the water leaking into the kitchen from the shower, that only happens when the shower curtain is not closed properly and the water gets on the floor. The house has pine floors and ceilings and when water puddles on the bathroom floor it eventually leaks through. Rarely have we heard this complaint, but will be certain to let our guest know before their check-in. Again, we are sorry that your vacation was not as pleasant as you anticipated.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in Ocean City for 30 years. This property was great for the whole family, 9 of us, ages 2 to 50s. Well furnished and the beach supplies were a nice extra. Will be a top-choice in the future!

10 Signs You Are Ready to Invest in Real Estate

Investment When it comes to property investment, timing is everything. Ultimately, choosing the right time to enter the market will have a significant impact on the long-term success of your investment.

But how can you as an investor know whether the timing is right? Global property portal Lamudi has compiled a list of 10 tell-tale signs that now is the time to start building your investment portfolio.

1. You are financially ready. You have saved enough for the down payment and you have also established your emergency fund. You have taken into account home maintenance expenses. Your credit history is good and you are able to meet all the financial obligations.

2. You have set your long-term goals. You have a clear picture in your mind of the purpose of your investment and you are flexible enough to adjust to changing circumstances. You are not hesitant and when the timing is right, you are able to adapt to the market needs and the development of technologies.

3. You have done your research. You know the neighborhood of your future property well enough to foresee the coming trends and the possible changes in the community. You have researched all the schools in the area as well as the best commuting means and you are able to predict the next homebuyer's needs.

4. You have chosen a stable economy. The area is financially stable, economic trends are promising and equities are surging. No demographic fluctuation or no irregular variation of population have been recorded in the area.

5. You understand the country’s policies regarding real estate. The policies of the region promote and encourage a positive, innovative environment as well as drive further economic growth. The tax policy in the country is positive for homeowners. Global innovation index is rising in the area.

6. Infrastructure projects are underway and likely to lead to an increase in property values. The infrastructure of the area is being developed with a focus on: transport, energy, solid waste and water management developments.

7. The region is moving toward sustainable development. The region’s awareness of global and local environmental issues is increasing, the demand for eco-friendly homes as well as for sustainable rural and urban development is rising. As more and more people head toward sustainable living, investing in sustainable property will increase its value in the future.

8. The location draws a lot of interest. Whether it is the best travel destination or the hot jobs spot, the location is always on the top of the search engine. It has become a successful startup hub already or is planning to do so in the coming years, driving a lot of job seekers into the area. The number of enrolled students is increasing every year and the area draws interest of international students.

9. You have found a reliable real estate agent. If you are an overseas buyer, it is particularly crucial to make sure you have a good representative on the ground. Your real estate agent is trustworthy and knows the local market well enough to be able to help you make the choice.

10. You have researched local differences in the property market. Whether you plan to invest in a residential property and turn it into a rental or an office space, you are fully aware of all cultural differences that might occur when you deal with a property seller.
