About Manager, Kathy D.

Correspondence will go to our property manager, Kathy D.

The owners live in PA and grew up vacationing in OC. The house required extensive work to refurbish it and they're thrilled to share their home with others to enjoy the OC experience.

Manager, Kathy D. purchased this house in 2012

Why Manager, Kathy D. chose South NJ Shore

After years of looking for a property, the owners felt the charm and location of this home was everything they were looking for.

What makes this house unique

The hard wood floors, private back yard, large rooms and separate garage are just some of the great, unique features. The breezes on the front porch will be a lasting memory of time spent here.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Lots of hard work and dedication to details so apparent in your gorgeous home! What a wonderful weekend spent with incredible friends. Thank you for such a special treat, your home is beautiful.

Great place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I booked a last minute vacation. Kathy was extremely easy to work with and we were able to get the details worked out quickly. The house had EVERYTHING needed for a beach vacation: Chairs, umbrellas, a beach cart, toys, bikes, well stocked kitchen/bar. The front porch was awesome. We had plenty of beds and bedrooms, even a first floor bedroom that was great for my mom who isn't great on the stairs. Location was perfect. Close the boardwalk, close to the stores, a block from Acme. Highly recommend this house.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. In case you're considering a return visit we removed the sqeaky bunk bed and replaced it with a queen size Westin Heavenly mattress. The mater bedroom mattress was also just replaced (same type mattress, king size). Hope to see you next summer!

Wonderful Large Family Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is truly a gem in Ocean City New Jersey. The home is very spacious and comfortably handled our crew of 8 adults, 5 children and 3 dogs. It was the perfect number of bedrooms and bathrooms for us. The kitchen is large and well supplied for cooking big meals and there was plenty of dining space in the dining room for all of us to eat together. Laundry is very convenient off of the kitchen. Plenty of space to separate the kids between the living room and family room so they could do their own thing, watch multiple shows/movies, play different games, etc. The new front porch is fantastic...we spent so much time out there! The owners also supplied a wonderful selection of beach equipment and beach tags. Location wise, you just can't beat this place. Close to the beach, Wonderland Pier and the Boardwalk, the grocery store, and shopping. This is also one of the few locations in Ocean City that allows pets, which was a must have for us. If you have a large family and pets, definitely put this place at the top of your list!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We're so glad that you enjoyed your visit to Ocean City and that the accommodations worked well for you. We know from our own experience how cumbersome it can be to bring beach chairs and bikes which is why we've chosen to supply them, but of course we can't guarantee their condition throughout the season. We do make an effort to stop in between rentals to verify that things are in order & certainly look forward to your return.

From the moment I walked through the door I was impressed. It looked as nice if not better than the listing photos showed. The beds were comfortable, beautiful kitchen and living area hardwood floors, there was plenty of room to sit down to dinner with our large crowd. We spent quite a bit of time on the front porch which has ample seats as well as a wonderful shade tree. The location is so close to the beach and boardwalk and a great little taco place too. Quite a gas saver being able to walk just about everywhere we wanted to go. Looking forward to coming back again. I would recommend this charming house!!

We had a girls weekend and couldn't have had anymore fun! We enjoyed the front porch morning noon and night. There is tons of room for everyone. We loved the the old features(stained glass windows, arched doorways and korbels in the corners, hard wood floors) and then all the updated features( new kitchen, fresh paint and new porch). It's well stocked with everything you could need. I would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your recommendation and glad you enjoyed the new porch! It was a major undertaking to finish construction it in time for 2014 rental season (thanks to our dear friends who gave up their Saturdays to help with the finishing touches). We never expected just how great the sea breezes and extra space would be appreciated.

Beautiful spacious home-great value!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home which we could not have felt more comfortable in for our week at the shore with our large family. The spacious home was great for all of us to spread out-to read, watch tv, play games or sit and talk. Wonderful restaurants within walking distance if we wanted to go out but the kitchen was really well stocked for nights we wanted to eat in-everyone was able to eat together too whether it be inside or outside which was great. With such a large group it's often hard to do big meals together. Super comfy beds and slept great from the ocean breezes that come through the large windows (we didn't even need to turn on the AC in August!). House also had ceiling fans which was nice, beach tags, bikes, beach

chairs, beach cart (which I would never think of but ended up being a lifesaver with all the grandkids "stuff"!), great selection of books and movies (for all ages)........

Counting the days until our week at this home next summer!!!!!

Owner's Response: We're so glad your family enjoyed the house, the convenient location and all the extras that we've provided to make your vacation as comfortable as possible. We're busy working on the 3rd floor to provide extra space for larger groups and we're anxious to get the approvals before we can replace the front porch which was removed by previous owners. We look forward to having your family again next year.

Charming and spacious, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week! You have a beautiful home with so much charm and character! You have a very spacious downstairs; which was perfect for our large group meals and hanging out at night. It was also very nice to be only a block away from downtown shopping, restaurants and the famous bakery! It was great to be able to vacation with our dog and the fenced in back yard was perfect! We will definitely be back next summer!
