This small island cottage is the perfect choice for small families or couples looking to get away without breaking the bank. Situated in a quiet neighborhood near the bay, it’s a short 10-minute walk to Ocean City’s great beaches and boardwalk.
WHY YOU'LL LIKE IT HERE: There’s fenced-in side and back yards with lawn furniture, and if parking on the street is hard to come by, you can fit up to 3 cars out back. Beach chairs and umbrella are stocked in the shed (just in case you forgot to shlep yours from home!) Inside, a new coat of paint has freshened up all the rooms, and the hardwood floors have been restored to their original luster. New tile has been laid in the entryway and kitchen. Other details about the place:
LIVING ROOM: The living room and dining area are well lit thanks to west-facing windows that pour in the afternoon sun. An over-sized couch and chair are perfect for curling up with a good book or watching a movie after a long day at the beach. TV, DVD, VCR and wireless Internet are all available in the cottage.
KITCHEN: While it definitely won’t win any awards in the size department, the small kitchen is well-stocked with pots, pans, dishes, cups, utensils and everything else you need for a whipping up a quick breakfast for the kids before heading out to the beach in the morning, or serving up some take-out from one of the fabulous eateries in town. (Menus for many of them are in a drawer in the living room). The kitchen table seats up to 4 people, or you can move out to the dining area in the living room, where the table can be opened up to seat 6.
BED/BATH: The cottage has 3 bedrooms, one bathroom, and comfortably sleeps 6. On most evenings, the southerly breeze flowing through the house usually cools the day’s heat, but each bedroom does have its own window AC unit, as well as a wall unit in the living room. (There is also a ceiling fan in the living room, as well as in the middle bedroom). Each bedroom has a bureau, nightstand, and closet with hangers and hampers; we supply the bedspreads, pillows, mattress pads and blankets, but you will need to bring your own sheets, pillowcases and towels. If you need to run a quick load of laundry, there’s a washer and dryer just off the kitchen.
MEMORIES: Ocean City has been a part of our life for 3 generations. My grandparents owned an Italian restaurant and produce shop here in the 1920’s, and my parents lived in town much of their married life. I have very fond memories of growing up here, riding bikes around town, taking in concerts at the Music Pier, playing mini golf on the boardwalk, screaming on the rides at Wonderland Pier or Gillian’s Water Park, and of course… eating! Pizza at Mack-N-Manco’s, custard at Kohr Brothers, a giant crab cake at Dell’s, or brunch at Bob’s Grill or Oves’. I would like to share this wonderful island resort with you and your friends and family. Start making some new memories of your own (or maybe bring back a few from your childhood, too!)
