Our home is a beautiful and classic Ocean City beach home. We are located just a block to the beach and boardwalk in the North End. Our first priority is always to provide a clean and comfortable vacation rental.

We provide many extras to help make your stay relaxing and enjoyable! We provide all the linens you will need: sheets, blankets, pillows, comforters, towels, washcloths, etc. We also provide toilet paper, hand soap, paper towels, and kitchen essentials such as coffee, tea, condiments, paper goods and more. We try to have our guests only bring their clothes and their food. Leave the rest to us!

Our home is air-conditioned with window and floor units. Each bedroom has a separate unit. We also have ceiling fans and stand fans so you can enjoy the ocean breezes if you like! For the beach we have beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach toys and beach wagon for you to use. After you have finished at the beach enjoy a nice hot shower in our enclosed after beach shower. For both the inside and outside showers we provide shampoo, conditioner, soap etc.

We have parking for two cars in the rear of our property. During the week plenty of parking is available on our street. We have outside seating on our porch for you and your family to enjoy the beautiful summer weather.

About Theresa Vaites

My husband and I have vacationed in Ocean City since childhood. My husband's family rented a couple of streets over on Brighton Place, so when we saw this property on the market, we knew it was 'the one!'

We have three young children, so we try to supply and stock the home with everything a family needs. We also just experienced the passing of our beloved dog, Frosty, so we also understand how important the furry members of your family are!

Theresa Vaites purchased this house in 2002

Why Theresa Vaites chose South NJ Shore

We love the North End location. Our street is quiet but still near everything. We loved that we had the offstreet parking and that this property had two units so we also had an opportunity to use our vacation home!

What makes this house unique

We try to provide our guests everything they need for an enjoyable vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a great house and my 16 month old son had a great time on his first trip to the shore. We'll dfeinately be back here again next year. Our dog Jake enjoyed the house too!

Amazing OC Beach Home! Great Value!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented this property in the summer of 2002 and we were MORE than impressed with it! The property is very spacious, the bedrooms were perfect. It was one of the rare properties we looked into that had a queen bed in practically every room! It really does sleep 16 - you rent the entire top three floors with the top floor having the most privacy with it's own 3/4 bath. Parking in the back is a little bit tight - you can park 2 mid-size cars. The time of year we went (early September) there was NO problem parking right in front on the street, though. The location is perfect - just two blocks from the beach at the less congested end of the boardwalk, but convenient to all activities. The kitchen/BBQ area was top notch! We did a little shopping at the store for main dishes, but all the utensils and cookware was there for us and in perfect condition. They do allow pets - we brought our friends boxer/shepherd mix and it was no problem whatsoever. The bathrooms (and the property in general) was very clean, and well decorated. Bright, contemporary colors, hardwood floors, berber carpets...all very nice! They do not have central A/C but do have many window air conditioning units that cool the entire house without a problem! We even found ourselves turning the A/C off at times because it got too chilly! Bottom line – for the price at the time we could not believe how beautiful this place was! We would have expected to pay much more for such a convenient, updated beach house. Our only regret was not calling sooner to book the house for next year and missing out on being able to stay there again! DEFINITELY recommend!!

Awesome home! Can't wait to stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

10 of us stayed here for a long weekend in April and had a wonderful time! Weather wasn't great, but this home was perfect for us to be together when we wanted (the dining room was our gathering place to play games) but also gave us the space we needed for "alone time" too. Very clean, with everything we needed, we felt comfortable the moment we stepped through the door. Highly recommend this home - the pictures don't lie. Owners were fabulous to deal with - very friendly and accommodating.

comfortable living close to beach and boardwalk

  • 5 of 5

I have rented this property for 6 years and we have all thoroughly enjoyed staying there every year. It is comfortable, well equipped, and very conveniently located a block and a half from the boardwalk and the beach. I think we have tried all the restaurants on the boardwalk and have found them to be very good, particularly Oves, the Ocean Café, and Manco and Manco. My grandchildren (who are 8 and under) love the rides at Wonderland Pier and also the arcade games and miniature golf spots, especially the indoor one with ultraviolet light at about 13th street. I highly recommend this rental!
