About the property

Three Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bath Town House with Water Views. Pier to fish, crab, etc.

Three Bedroom town home with 2 1/2 baths located in the Portofino community, just off of Delaware Route 54. A Sun room in the back of the house provides additional privacy and a queen sofa bed for sleeping. All beds are queen size. A washer/dryer are conveniently located on the second level; cleaning supplies are provided for your convenience. The house is equipped with four TVs, 3 DVD players and even a VCR for your pleasure--there is a Bose Stereo system in LR, too. Games in the unit are available to occupy everyone. Only a short drive or bike trip to the beach, and then return for a dip in the community pool. Bring a chair to the pool and you can sun bath on site without the sand!. Within walking distance of fine dining at Catch 54 and the well-known Harpoon Hanna's restaurants. Or, relax at the Zen Spa or enjoy coffee or a light snack at the Route 54 Internet Cafe. And, the house is equipped with wireless Internet for your computing. The Bethany Beach Boardwalk is 12 minutes away and North Ocean City is but one mile away. Fenwick Island is just one mile away and there is ample tax free shopping and eating--Fenwick has a mini-Boardwalk with golf, water park and other eateries. The night life of Ocean City is so close, but you can come at night to the quiet and relaxation at Portofino. You'll never know you're even at the beach, but it's all there for you, if you want it. There is a community pier for fishing, crabbing or just watching the wildlife or boats riding up and down the Fenwick Ditch.

About Eric

I enjoy the beach and the Eastern Shore. I appreciate the slower way of life and the beauty of the wildlife. I particularly look forward to crabbing and fishing from the pier. And, of course, I take advantage of the great tax-free shopping in Rehoboth and the many restaurants and fun things to do. It's a nice place to vacation and a great place to hang out after a tough week.

Eric purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Eric chose Maryland

I purchased this property because my family and I always felt so good when we rented various units. It feels like home. Living in Portofino has provided me and my family with memories of a lifetime. We have had such fun. The residents have always been friendly and helpful and it never feels crowded, except for a few days of the year.

What makes this townhome unique

Portofino is located in North Ocean City/Fenwick Island. The area is less congested and accessibility to activities is wonderful. The community is quiet and relaxing, yet it is just minutes from the exciting night-life and cool stuff that you can enjoy on the water. It's so hard to believe that you can be in downtown OC or Bethany Beach in 12-30 minutes. You can stay in the Portofino neighborhood and crab, fish, swim, walk to fine dining establishments or recreational centers, without experiencing the crowds. It's not just a's a community.

Nice, clean townhouse in a relatively quiet area. It is within walking distance to several nice restaurant/bars. There was plenty of room and privacy for everyone in our party. We enjoyed the stay and would definitely stay again if we visit ocean city.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This town home was a home away from home. It had all the comforts of home and the owner was very accommodating! We spent our days at the beach and relaxed by the pool in the afternoons! We visited Bethany Beach and the Ocean City Boardwalk. We rented a boat located around the corner for the day, dined in and dinned out at Harpoon Hannah's (great food). We also enjoyed the small water park located by mini golf. Thanks for a wonderful week in a great location! We hope to be back soon! My only suggestion would be an 11am checkout.

We stayed for 4 nights at Eric's condo and had a wonderful family get together! The condo is clean, easy to find and also to get to other things in the area. While we ate our meals out, it was nice to be able to make coffee and lounge in the mornings and come back in the evening to a pretty and clean location!

Would definitely return and also recommend to others!

We vacationed with our son and daugher in-law and grandchild in Ocean City and stayed in Erics Townhome. It was perfectly clean and very well equiped. Everything was avalible for a perfect stay and close to all the Ocean City excitement but located in a nice quiet spot on the water. We felt very safe in this location and I would reccomend this townhome to anyone. Eric has been great to work with and everyone we spoke to at the townhome was complimetary towards him. Very Satisfied

Beautiful Townhouse and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful townhouse way exceeded our expectations for our beach vacation! It is very well maintained both inside and out. All amenities listed above were available for our use. The swimming pool is kept very clean and after being out and about, it was nice to come back and relax poolside. Our family really enjoyed crabbing off the fishing pier located a hop, skip and jump away from the townhouse.

The first couple days of our stay we had some rain, so we enjoyed shopping at the Tanger Outlets in RB. and ate out. The three restaurants we enjoyed the most were The Countryside Café, Fenwick, Harpoon Hanna's (walking distance) and Ember's (AYCE Buffett, OC). I also enjoyed the BEACH at Fenwick! Lots to do in the area.

Eric (owner) was super nice, VERY helpful and accommodating. I recommend this property for a short stay in the off season or a week long family vacation. Hoping to visit with you next year!!

Thanks Again,

The Cuccurullo Family

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Portofino a couple of weeks ago. The description and photos are very accurate and the owner was fast to respond to questions. It was also very clean and well-maintained. We were lucky to be there when the beautiful crepe myrtle trees throughout the property were in full bloom. The best part about staying here is the peaceful neighborhood. It is quiet, safe and very nice for walking. The views from the pier are absolutely gorgeous. The beach, with free parking on the street, is about five minutes away. If you stay here, be sure to try Jimmy's Kitchen in Fenwick, DE for breakfast. You can't beat their fast service and excellent breakfast. They are so close to Portofino that we went there every day for breakfast before the beach. We definitely recommend Portofino for its convenient location and would stay there again.

This unit is a 3 Bedroom, 2 1/2 bath townhouse located off of the beaten path. Portofino is a quiet community of 32 units with a community pool and a pier that can be used for crabbing, fishing or just watching the boats travelling up and down the ditch. It is a very relaxing area, yet the Bethany Boardwalk is about 12 minutes away and the busy/exciting Ocean City night life is one mile away. Go Karts, the movie theater, the indoor amusement park and the bus are available in North OC. Award wining restaurants like Catch 54 and Harpoon Hanna's are a short walk away, as well as the Route 54 Internet Cafe or Zen Spa Studio. Boat or jet ski rentals are within walking distance. You can bike to the beach, or drive and park, or cool at our pool!! Fenwick is two minutes away with tax-free shopping and its own mini-Boardwalk with golf, restaurants and a water park. The townhouse is comfortably decorated with a beach theme and the Kitchen is fully stocked; you can even grill outside and eat on the patio. Wireless Internet is available. A pier is available to view the Fenwick Ditch and the many vessels passing by.
