About Diane Quinn

Growing up we always came to Ocean City, Maryland for our family vacation. We stayed at the old Belmont Hotel on Dorchester Street, then in later years we would rent condos further up the beach as Ocean City grew. In later years I'd spend summers in Dewey, Rehobeth, and Bethany Beach. Then one day I saw these homes being built in Fenwick Island, and I liked it because Fenwick was less crowded than the other beaches. I moved in the summer of 2004, and a decorator friend helped me with the Carribean paint colors. My family and I enjoyed summers and weekends there for the next few years. I started renting the house on Homeaway in 2010, so it's only been used as a rental property for 5 years. I have been very lucky that everyone who has rented keeps the house as beautiful as they find it!

Diane Quinn purchased this townhome in 2004

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house is a storybook three floor condo off Lighthouse Road. A blink of an eye from Coastal highway. Just turn at Viking Mini Golf - and about three minutes later you're there.

The house is decorated with taste and a sense of humor, in colors that will make you grin. With hardwood floors, pine wainscots and views of the bay from everywhere.

You can catch the lighthouse beams at night. And of course the panorama sunsets. Photos don't do it justice.

Aside from the creature comforts, you can head left to Rehobeth and the land of discount shopping. . .Or turn right and you're in Ocean City, where there's always something to do.

Just a great vacation place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first 'immediate family' vacation and it was wonderful! This house was perfect for our family. The place is so roomy; large kitchen and dining area, family room, balconies and the bedrooms served each family perfectly. The walk to the beach is EASY, even for a 61 year old grampa like me. It really is just 10 minutes and you pass the ice cream place both going and coming home! The pool area was never crowded- so many times it was just a parent with one or two children or a few local folks- all very pleasant. Sunsets are fabulous! This house is ideal for it's advertised capacity and It is exactly as advertised. Plenty of parking and the double garage can be a play area for you and the little ones if rain should come. Thank you owner Diane for a wonderful place of happy memories!

The townhouse is great, location is awesome.

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse was perfect for us again, enough bedrooms for our three families, with the fourth bedroom for our daughters. Location is great, walking distance to the beach and shops

Overcharged for laundry

  • 1 of 5

I'm sad to give this beautiful home such a low rating, but I feel it necessary. My girlfriends and I stayed here and had a wonderful time. My issue is not with the home itself but with my communications with Diane, the owner. When my group arrived to the home, we were surprised to see that there were no sheets on any of the beds, especially since there was nothing in the listing or rental agreement that said we needed to provide our own sheets. We noticed an open closet filled with sheets, so we used them. We thought it was odd but didn't think much of it. We spent 3 lovely nights there. Prior to departure, I made sure to read the rental agreement very carefully with all the rules concerning cleaning up, and we left the home in very good condition. Fast forward to a few weeks later, I received only half of my deposit back from Diane. Her reasoning was that we were supposed to bring our own linens, the closet where we found the linens was "supposed to be locked", and that there was not enough time to wash the linens at the house before the next tenants were to arrive. Now, I understand that by using the linens we caused some inconvenience. For this, I apologize. But to charge me so much money for this when all it says in the rental agreement is that "no linens are lost or damaged" is simply inappropriate. I have sent Diane two messages concerning this, which have both been ignored. Again, I hate to write this review because my friends and I truly loved staying here, but between being charged a large sum for some laundry and Diane not responding to my concerns, it was a necessity.

Owner's Response: After seeing this review, I called Homeaway and explained that my sister (who cleaned my house) found that the renters had opened the owners' closet and used all the towels and sheets. She found them in big wet in piles on the floor, and that it took her hours to clean the house for the next renters. Homeaway asked me to check my Rental Agreement, and I saw that my 2016 Agreement did not specifically instruct renters that they needed to bring their own sheets and towels. After that I did refund Bethany the rest of her security deposit! I told her I was sorry for the misunderstanding. I have since made sure my Rental Agreement is clear that we can't provide linen service. I have five hours between check-in and check-out on Saturdays, and there are four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms to clean, along with the kitchen, living and dining areas. There is simply not enough time for cleaners to wash and dry linens. I have been using Homeaway since 2010, and many renters come back every year. My home is beautiful and I do my best to make it comfortable for all my renters, and I'm sorry for this misunderstanding.

... Your Worries Immediately Melt Away

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in the door, we were blown away by the gorgeous view from all three levels. Every detail of the decor was perfectly coordinated to remind you that you are at the beach and you were there to relax and have fun. The location of the property is ideally suited for just that! It is within walking distance from a terrific beachy restaurant & bar, several good restaurants and a water sports rental. The ocean beach is a 5 minute drive. Our family has been coming to DelMarVa beaches for years, this was one of the more enjoyable trips and venues.

The place was clean, no musty or old smell, Diane was terrific to deal with and we will be back.
