About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Queen Sofa Bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4) Max

Top of the Waves is a 9 unit, beachfront condominium. Our first floor 1 bedroom unit is ground level and faces the ocean. When you step outside the condo you are in a sandy area surrounded by a privacy fence and a huge common deck area complete with lounge chairs, picnic tables, and gas grills. The only thing separating you from the ocean are the dunes. Walk past the deck and you are just a few steps to the beach. The beach at 55th Street is lifeguard protected during the summer season.

You are located right across the street from Mallon’s Bakery where you can pick up fresh bagels, sticky buns, and hot coffee after your morning walk on the beach. For lunch you can grab a really great sandwich right off the beach by going across the street to Sack of Subs.

In the evening, you and the family are a short block away from A La Mode Ice Cream Parlor. Boyers market is 2 short blocks away for any grocery shopping or convenience item needs. For fresh take-out or eat-in seafood, walk over to Mike’s Seafood. For those of you headed to the boardwalk, you can catch the trolley which stops outside our condo every half hour after 5 PM during summer months.

Some of the best sunsets can be seen from the second floor deck overlooking the bay side.

The southern end of Ocean City also offers the bay for kayaking and nature trails, among other activities. This area is truly its own quiet community within the larger community of Ocean City.

America's Greatest Family Resort's boardwalk won The Travel Channel's heart with its family-oriented attractions. Ocean City's 'go-karts, movies, water park, mini golf and kiddie rides' are all mentioned in the article, in addition to some 'big traditions, like Thursday family nights with free concerts and dancing.

The Travel Channel also named Ocean City as the Garden State's most popular beach.

Why Diana chose South NJ Shore

Our family has grown up near the shore. We chose to buy at the quiet, southern end of OC, NJ because of the family atmosphere and its unique location near Corson's Inlet State Park. There is always something to do in OC, even in the off season. It gives us a feeling of peace and calm whenever we are here. Many people who rent come back for a return vacation year after year. You have to experience 'Top of the Waves' to feel the magic.

What makes this condo unique

Park your car for the week and you'll never have to drive anywhere. Everything you need is walking distance to the beach house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Tight but lovely quarters

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a week towards the end of summer and had a good time. There is a door between the front room and the bedroom, but the door is vented, so not as much privacy as I would have liked.

We had some difficulty with the TV but with a bit of work figured it out.

The location is well away from the boardwalk but you step out to the sand. You cannot see the ocean from the first floor because of the dunes but you can see lots of sand.

If it was just a couple (or a very young child up to four years old) I think the place would have been perfect.

Cute Condo on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us had a weekend girls' getaway and this was the perfect location for our stay! The outside area was wonderful and the inside was immaculate. Would definitely stay again!

Beautiful place - just as portrayed

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a beautiful 5 day stay, listening to the sound of the waves each morning, strolling the beach during the day, and walking around the neighborhood. The condo is very convenient to several nearby eateries and a short drive to the boards. The kitchen was well equipped, the condo was clean, and all was just as pictured on the website.

Great little place

  • 5 of 5

Great location right on the beach. Clean, neat, updated, plenty of room for a couple days. The landlord was very easy to work with. Great location too, with several places for food. We really enjoyed it and hope to use it again.

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was quite nice. The sandy area outside was perfect for the kids, and we loved just being able to walk and take morning strolls on the beach.
