About Kathleen Young

We love North Ocean City area. We began our Grape vacation home journey after vacationing at the shore for many years. We are always seeking to provide our guests with the very best vacation experiences - and like to say we treat you like family. Because we design our homes, and provide customer service in the same way we would like to be treated if we were the guest.

Kathleen Young purchased this condo in 2004

Why Kathleen Young chose Ocean City

The North part of Ocean City is very much like the more restful, family friendly Fenwick area - just 5 blocks away - and yet all the excitement of Ocean City is just to the south - you can enjoy the best beaches here - without all the crowds. Walk to movies, restaurants, mini golf, shopping and of course beach!

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Grape Escapes was wonderful! The entire condo was spacious and had everything we needed for a fun family vacation. We have been going to Ocean City for ten years now and it was far and away the best place we stayed!!!! It was perfect and we look forward to staying there again next year.

Most of the property is just as described.

  • 4 of 5

Owner was wonderful and very satisfied with overall experience. Couple of issues with property itself, but they had nothing to do with the actual condo or the owner. We rented this property because it had an inside heated pool and hot tub. Going at the end of October we didn't expect to be able to go and sit on the beach. The pool was extremely cold, We called the management company and they told us it was heated, but everyone that was at the pool thought the same thing, NOT HEATED, OR NOT ON. Hot tub was cloudy and was not inviting at all. 8th Floor terrace was great, except there was no furniture up there. You could go up and look around and that was it. What good is a terrace if no furniture to sit and enjoy.

We did run into another owner who told us the furniture was probably packed away for the season and pool heat was probably off because of the season. If that is the case, than they should not be renting condo's off season. Luckily the weather was great and we were able to go and sit on the beach each day.

Unfortunately, because of the above issues, I would not return to the facility off season. I would find someplace else that did have what I was looking for during off season weather.

It's a shame because again, the condo was clean and really nice. Had everything you could have wanted and didn't really need to bring anything from home. The ocean view was great on the outside balcony. 3 bedrooms was more than enough for what we needed and 3 baths to go with them was another great feature. A lot of locked doors with combinations and keys was a pain, but we took pics with our cell so we wouldn't have to remember all the different numbers and lock combos.

Thanks for a great long weekend, even with the facility issues.

Amazing OCMD Retreat with Friends!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the Grape Escape! Close enough to fun places and the beach, great proximity to the bus, but also a nice ways away from the crazier, late night scene. The condo was beautiful and immaculately clean, and we thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub and pool area! It was a great place to spend a weekend away, and we would definitely love to come back!

Very Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5

We were three families, six adults and three kids total. The condo was spacious, plenty of room for everyone to be comfortable. The location was very convenient to beach, entertainment, restaurants and shopping.

The condo was nicely decorated and pretty clean. The refrigerator needed to be wiped clean and there were grounds still in the coffee maker but compared to other places we have rented, it was above average. The bathrooms show some wear and tear but that's to be expected with a rental.

Be aware that the elevator was very busy at check in and check out time because everyone is coming and going at the same time. Check in was a bit better but it was hard to find a baggage cart to use at either time.

This was a nice place to spend a week and we would definitely consider renting it again.
