About Monique Bottalico

My family moved to Ocean City in 1970, OCHS Grad and happy to have come home to raise my family here. Ocean City has a special place in my heart and I'm sure she will capture yours too. Something that I cherish about this home is the breeze that goes through the house and of course spending time on the front porch. Come, sit and stay a while. YOU WILL LOVE THIS SWEET SPOT!

Monique Bottalico purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Monique Bottalico chose Ocean City

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION...AND YOU WILL LOVE THIS LOCATION! If you have little ones it's convenient, if you have teenagers it's convenient, if you want to head to AC - no problem. Walk to downtown bistro 1 block, dry cleaners, gym, shops 1 block, church...take your pick, the rides at Wonderland Pier, beach, bay, 4 blocks, tennis courts 2 blocks, basketball 3 blocks. I love this section of town (can you tell).

What makes this apartment unique

Park your car, walk or ride your bike for the rest of your stay. Feel your blood pressure going down yet? Everything is here, our rooms are spacious, kitchen and baths updated. This is a large property with plenty of space and she's ready to host your vacation. We've put a lot of thought into hosting families and groups and provide some extras that take the added pressures off the planning list. With most vacation weeks we provide sheets and towels (no need to wash them before you leave either), key-less entry is also a big need to share 2 keys or worry about fees for losing keys between 10 people.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I know I'd like to return to your beautiful home next year. We enjoyed the work done outside, especially the showers.

Great for family groups!

  • 5 of 5

Our large, family group - including dog - had a wonderful June vacation in this clean, well-appointed rental home. With a wagon for the baby and younger child, the few blocks' trek to the beach was easy. The house is close to shops, grocery, bike rentals, etc. The Dog Beach, a short drive away, is possibly the finest dog beach in the world! One of the best features is the front porch, where we spent most of our at-home time. The kitchen is well appointed for cooks who need "all the right stuff." The owner was attentive and responsive to our needs. One of our all-time best vacations!

Wonderful Family Reunion!

  • 5 of 5

My family wanted to get together for a family reunion and chose Ocean City as the detestation. We found this house and it was absolutely perfect for our 19 family members. We rented both the house and the ground-level apartment. We had plenty of space to gather, eat, and sleep. No one felt crowded! We loved the front porch and found ourselves missing our morning "porch time" together after we left. It was clean, had adequate bathrooms, and the beds were comfortable. The AC felt good after a long day in the sun and everyone loved the two outdoor showers. The boys loved their "dorm" - the bunk bed room! It was great to have an electronic lock so we didn't have to worry about who had a key. It was close enough walk to the beach and no one struggled with parking. It was right next to the Tabernacle, which had lovely bells that ran Sunday morning and a great farmer's market. Everyone said that they would come back to this house and do this again! We got a picture of everyone on the steps as a souvenir! I would highly recommend this house!

Peaceful and Charming, I loved my stay.

  • 5 of 5

I felt at peace in this charming home. I loved the L-shaped porch and the large barbecue grill outside. I had my breakfast on the porch every morning and found myself sitting and sitting and sitting some more. It was just so peaceful and calming. There were two private parking spots out behind the house and most days, it was no trouble finding a space right out front on Central Avenue. I have found that there are not many rentals that allow you to take your pets so this was an added bonus to not have to kennel my dog or hire a pet-sitter. As for the inside, I just loved the vibrant paint choices that added to the charm. The beds are huge and comfortable. I said to my husband that you could fit four people in that king. I have a queen at home, so it felt extra large to me, maybe. The beach themes and artwork through out the house remind you that you are at the shore. Even some of the books that the owner had stored in the living room were beachy and shore-like and I felt like the literary choices were for all ages, which was nice. They had the Harry Potter series, plus board games when things slowed down at night or we stayed in with the rain. There was a stroller provided, which came in handy for my five year old niece that came over one day and was "too tired" to walk around at dinner time one night. There was this funny little riddles book that was a riot. We found it in a drawer in the dining room and started reading it and laughed. These were little extras that I just didn't expect and I just appreciated having these memory-builders. I was amazed at the kitchen gadgets and if there was anything I wanted to make, I probably could have, although I tend to be as lazy as possible when I'm vacationing. That makes me think of the restaurants nearby. Off-the-hook good! I love Asbury Avenue too! One of the best things that is one block away and you can see it right from the porch is a church with a park all around it, where people exercise, ride bikes, scooters and skate-board. It was nice to see all of that activity from a distance and the church played hymns on Sunday through bells and it added to my peace. The beach is such a quick walk, 4 blocks. I liked watching the surfers on 7th beach. Wonderland was right at 6th and Boardwalk, so we didn't have to take a long hike for the rides. Plus the bathrooms are on 6th as well. When we got home, we would rinse off at the outdoor showers and kept most of the sand outside. Booking annually

My family of five and dogs stayed in this beautiful Victorian for a week in July this year! We have just recently moved out of state and wanted to include our extended families to visit with us! This was the perfect house for our large group! Very spacious inside. The front porch is wonderful for a cup of coffee in the morning and a drink in the evening! The house is Close to shops and restaurants on Asbury Ave, the Boardwalk and the beach. My family loves OC and we hope to rent this home again!!

This property needs a lot of work before it is ready for renters at the rate that they are charging.

  • 1 of 5

Showers are discolored and have mold on shower curtains. Dryer needs to be run multiple times before drying a load of laundry. One of showers is held up by a shoelace. Banisters on stairs are not secure. Seating in living room not comfortable and dirty. Refrigerator I emma gone unusable and has dirty filter. Outdoor shower not enclosed. Very disappointed in this house especially for the price and being 6 blocks from beach!

Owner's Response: I just got off the phone with the family who is our current guest. They have 2 little ones and say the house is safe and they have no problems. Just in case my handyman will be there Thursday to inspect the railings. Heavens above, I am speechless. All summer I've received texts that say, "the house is beautiful", "thank you for renting to us", "the house is perfect for our family", "we love the location", "I am loving your porch right now". We are extremely courteous and care about our guests experiences. ONE PHONE CALL would have taken care of any necessary services to rectify situations within our control. Lastly, we are NOT 6 streets to the beach., we are 4 streets to the beach. So already something isn't right here...although it is true our outdoor showers are not enclosed which is on purpose. I know it's not easy hosting large groups Erica's was a family of 12 which is why we put so much extra care in our rental such as sheets and bath towels, guests don't even have to wash at the end of the stay. My house manager even gave up where her car was parked to give them a 3rd parking spot. Well, we tried...
