About Dorie Sheldon

Bob and I have been married for 29 years as of 2017 Our children are now 25 and and (2) 23 year old. We have loved the beach and spent many years building memories among ourselves and family reunions. We continue to enjoy our beach property and can not wait for the warm weather to return for the summer season.

Dorie Sheldon purchased this condo in 2004

Why Dorie Sheldon chose Maryland

We have vacationed at Robin's Nest since 1996. When we were offered the property in 2004, we jumped at the chance to make it our own. We welcome all families and groups of 4 adults at Family rates. We are family rentals and do not rent for Beach Week Seniors. We are Pet friendly with Fees. We constantly update our properties. A major renovation is planned for April 2016. We also own the EMERALD APARTMENTS Homeaway id 3961272 and are family rentals and Pet friendly w/fee.

What makes this condo unique

Come see why we love our Beach property. Close enough to the beach but quiet and relaxing for a vacation home.

Our beach property continues to be updated on a yearly basis. New projects for 2016 are renovating kitchen and flat screen TV's in living rooms. It's nice that we own a construction company back in Northern Virginia to complete our wish lists.

3 weeks of restful work

  • 5 of 5

As an international human service team of 4, we needed a place to rest and work in August of 2007. Our time at this comfortable bayside condo was just the place! A close walk to the beach and boardwalk, spacious and welcoming in it's accomodation... 'far-away' from the hustle-bustle of daily work, but close enough to the main necessities. Even the beds were comfortable! The condo was clean and cozy, the neighborhood was quiet and had a nice view of the bay from the balcony porch. If we had it to do over again???? We would!

My family and I have been staying with Bob and Dorie for a few years now, My daughter even calls it her apartment at the beach. We all love it and Bob and Dorie are always accommodating when we come to stay. We don't even want to stay anywhere else in Ocean City. We just love it there so much. You can not go wrong stay there when you are in Ocean City.

Child's Birthday Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this condo over childs birthday in August 2013 and everything was great. This is located in a great area close to the beach and boardwalk and Jolly Roger park ( right around corner) as well as bus route which is just up the street. This is also near a cute playground. Many stores and restaurants close by also. Property convient to everything.

Unit was clean and comfortable just as promised with all of the comforts of home. Well maintained and updated property. Being able to take our puppy was an added plus. Owners easy to work with and very nice. Looking forward to staying here again.

I highly recommend this property. AAA++++

Excellent location, clean and well maintained!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this a condo in this property for a week. Its clean and well maintained, had central A/C and plenty of room for 6 people. The owners were very friendly, and the entire process of renting was easy. One of the very best things about this property was the location! We walked everywhere. Our family vacations in Ocean City every couple of years, and we've stayed on all sides of town, and this was by far our favorite spot. EASY walk to the beach, restaurants, boardwalk tram, water and amusement park, mini golf and many shops. We even caught crabs across the street and cooked them! We will definitely consider this property again when we visit in the future.
