About John Lee

Semi-retired, I am a licensed Washington DC tour guide.

John Lee purchased this house in 1997

Why John Lee chose Selbyville

I purchased this house because it is a very quiet and relaxed waterfront location but conveniently located from many attractions and the ocean. Originally I was enticed by a close friend who lives year round on the street but since, have developed several other friends who live there year round.

What makes this house unique

As a single story home, it has all the amenities I need including a quiet deck overlooking adjoining canals. On a dead end street between two canals, you can walk to Harpoon Hannah's. Papa Grande's, Catch 54 or even Walgreens but still tucked away from the main highways.

Lovely house in a beautiful spot.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay at this wonderful house. Clean, bright, cheerful - everything you'd want a vacation spot to be. We loved the deck on the canal, walking our dog around the comfortable neighborhood, and being close to restaurants, the beach, and all the fun spots but with the added amenity of returning to a nice quiet spot at the end of the day. The owner is also nice and responsive every step of the way - a huge plus.

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

First off the owner John was so nice. His home is located on the canal and is charming. The view from the back of the house is just lovely. The house is very clean and comfortable. It was important for us to bring our aging dog since this may be the last vacation we will have him together. The dog was so comfortable and happy which made us happy as well. I can't say enough how beautiful the area is and the beaches are stunning. We loved every minute of our stay and wished we could of stayed longer. Just wanted to say thank you John for a wonderful experience.

Super House, Great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very special house. immaculate inside and out Everything about it makes you feel at home. We especially enjoyed the deck, beautiful sunsets, very quiet area at night. Very close to everything you want in O.C. or Delaware Beach areas. The owner very obviously cares about his property and his renters. We will definitely stay here again and recommend to friends.

Wonderful property in an outstanding location!

This is our second stay at John's house, and it could not have been nicer. Everything is clean, accommodating and well stocked. For us, there is no better place to stay in Ocean City. Thanks again John for the great hospitality and great vacation.

I lovely little gem with everything near by

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd year at John Lee's home. We love it! Its near everything-just minutes from beaches and restaurants. We enjoy just relaxing outside too..just watching the ducks, geese, blue heron, and boaters go by.

The home has everything you need-in fact more than you get from other rentals. He stocks all the essentials so make sure you look around inside before heading to the store. He has all kinds of things for folks to use and renters usually leaves stuff behind too (not perishables) like condiments, coffee, etc which is really nice too. The bedrooms are very nice and the beds comfy.

I would highly recommend John's home. Its a lovely little gem of a place. Thank you for allowing us in your home John.

Amazing home! Family favorite!

  • 5 of 5

We felt right at home! The house is so clean and well stocked. Even though the home allows pets, you would never know any pets had been there. We loved sitting out by the water, and crabbing off the dock. We are looking forward to staying again!
