An individual, typical, seashore cottage by the sea all on one floor. A very comfortable, home like atmosphere. It is located one block behind the Port O Call hotel and is a short 1 1/2 blocks to the beach and wooden, 2 1/2 mile boardwalk. It is just 8 miles south of Atlantic City and 20 minutes north of Wildwwod and 30 minutes north of Cape May, N.J. Also just an hour from Historic Philadelphia, home of the Liberty Bell and Philadelphia Eagles. This makes a great day trip for the whole family.
Keep in mind that you may rent 'Pelican Roost' for a beautiful week or week-end (3 day minimum) in the Fall. Warm days and cool restful nights. Some folks consider this the best time of the year at the shore with less crowds. Our Fall Block Party is Saturday October 8,2016. This is certainly a fun day for everyone! Call for more information.
We are a couple who have enjoyed our time here with family and friends very much. It was close to the beach and just the right size for our family. Also we have a great neighborhood with wonderful neighbors.
jeannette herrman purchased this cottage in 1975
We discovered Ocean City as grown-ups and wish we
could have vacationed here as childen. We fell in love
with the area and looked for an individual Ocean City
cottage near the beach and boardwalk. The short 1 1/2
blocks is not far to walk with young children and beach gear.
We enjoy the people of O.C. and meeting the families who
come here with their children for the family atmosphere. All during the summer there are activities for children as well as their parents and also a well guarded safe beach.
Two other unique benefits are the many programs and
Pops Orchestra concerts every week at the Music Pier
next to the beach. The second is our interfaith
Tabernacle, which seats over 2,000 at the 8:30 and
10:30 services every Sunday with Sunday school and child care at each service. Also special programs and concerts during the week. Each Sunday there are
inspiring messages from pastors around the country !
Our family enjoyed a week at the Pelican Roost. There were four adults, and two children. There is plenty of room - four good sized bedrooms, 1.5 baths and an outdoor shower, screened-in front porch, small back porch with seating.
It isn't a fancy place, but it was clean and comfortable. We did not use the A/C window units. The ceiling fans and ocean breeze was sufficient. The house is well shaded.
The location is a two block from the boardwalk and beach, and a short walk from local in-town eateries and conveniences. The house is at 15th Street. The boardwalk shops end at 14th Street. So you are close to the action, without being in the middle of the hectic traffic and parking and noise.
We will be back to OC and we will stay at The Roost again!
Staying here (5 of us) was almost like staying in your own home. Listing and photos were very accurate. It was very clean, had 4 nice size bedrooms (one with a TV), 1.5 baths, a living room with comfortable furniture and a nice flat screen tv, and a kitchen that contained everything you would ever need in case you forgot to bring something. Air conditioners worked fine. My personal favorite was the screened-in front porch which was great for just sitting and relaxing, or for playing cards. Also had a back deck and parking for 2 cars which often came in handy. Only 2 blocks to the beach. Owners were very nice and accomodating. I highly recommend staying at this "home".
We enjoyed our stay at the Pelican's Roost immensely. Our group of 6 had plenty of room for group fun and still room for privacy. Four bedrooms and 1.5 baths plus living room, dining room, screened in front porch and back deck for the price is a great bargain. The house was clean and neat and all on one floor. The beds were comfortable. It is 1.5 blocks from a nice quiet beach and the boardwalk. It is a few blocks from shopping and restaurants.
The owners were very accommodating and pleasant to work with. I would definitely recommend staying at the Pelican Roost to a friend and hope we can return next year.
