Guestbook comments from the manager

If you are looking for a good location and a quality place to stay, try the Chateau Surf! This was our second year staying there, and we loved it this year as much as we did the first time! The furnishings are beautiful and comfortable, it is a block from the beach, and the treatment we received from the owner couldn't have been better. It is a place you will want to return to year after year - you will feel like you are coming home! I can't wait to go back!

A wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6, (teenage & young adult children) had the absolute best vacation this month. We stayed in Villa 6 & 7 as our children all needed "their own space". This was perfect as we parents could spend time alone or with them during the 7 days. These Villas are in a wonderful section of Ocean City. Short walk to the beautiful beach and Boardwalk. The rides and plenty of restaurants. We were minutes from other attractions by car. The parking for the Villa was wonderful & very convenient. The living space itself was very clean and all appliances were in great shape. It was very helpful to be able to eat in, cook, microwave, etc. where we had inquiries they were answered immediately by the very helpful property manager. We were delighted with this entire experience.

Entire Place - great location!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I rented all of Chateau Surf for a week in July. It's location near the boardwalk was perfect. We also used the pool at the nearby Tidelands Hotel. Julie was an excellent host. The day we arrived there were some comfort and amenity issues, and she responded right away to fix everything.

Our group was 20 people including kids and it was the perfect space-- we all had some privacy but could also all meet up in Villa 1. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

The location is amazing! Literally, 1 block from the Boardwalk!!!

I stayed in Villa 7, which is in the back house on the second level. It's on Wilmington, off of 5th Street. The pictures for Villa 6 describes the arrangement perfectly, since the set up is identical. For some reason, the Internet was a little flighty: sometimes I could connect, sometimes I couldn't, and it was awfully slow at times! I don't know if it's because I was in the back house or what.

The unit is clean and linens and 2 pillows for each bed are included. There are 2 towels and 2 washcloths set up for you when you arrive, but feel free to bring your own. There are extra pillows in the linen closet, but I brought my own. You will definitely have to bring your own beach towel, chairs, and gear. There is a porch where you can hang out, but not much of a view (a wall). There is parking across the unit (on the left if you're coming from 5th Street).

Yes, there are ceiling fans in the living room, kitchen, and both bedrooms and wall unit air conditioners in the main room and both bedrooms. I slept on the couch and found it to be comfortable!

The kitchen is fully stocked with basic cookware, flatware, silverware, coffee mugs, cups, and a few wine glasses. You'll have to buy ice if you need it!

Bathroom has a shower stall, but no tub (not ideal for those with small children). You will need to bring your own toilet paper!

Master bedroom is straight through from the front door (if facing the bathroom, it's to the right) and has a closet and a chest drawer. Second bedroom is to the left of the bathroom and it only has a closet and side table. Closets have plenty of space to hang clothing! There is also a linen closet immediately to the right of the bathroom if you need more storage.

Ladies, there is only 1 mirror and that is in the bathroom, which is the medicine cabinet. Bringing a vanity mirror is a must! If you NEED a full length mirror, you have to bring your own!

Julie, the owner, was so quick to respond and so courteous! I would definitely stay here again!

Perfect Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Chateau Surf while in O.C. for a family Thanksgiving gathering. It was the perfect accommodation for our family of mixed generations! Chateau Surf was spacious, comfortable, tastefully decorated and very clean! On Thanksgiving day some of us enjoyed snacks on the sunny front porch while others went a half of a block to the beach to enjoy the beautiful weather. The location is excellent and the accommodations met our needs perfectly! I highly recommend Chateau Surf!

Perfect getaway steps to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place for families! My husband and I wanted to take our 5 grown children and their families on vacation. We rented all of Chateu Surf with the exception of one villa. This was a perfect set up for us. Each family had their own space but in the main house the villas were separated by one door that could be open or closed. Everyone had their privacy but we could all come together for dinners and hanging out on the front porch. The villas have a nice décor and very clean and neat and modern. The best part of this rental is the location! It is right off 5th street. You cross one 1 way street and that block is at the boardwalk. We spent a lot of time on the beach and were able to walk back and forth with ease. There also is a hotel across the street that has a public pool with a bar/food area which my family really enjoyed as well. Julie was great to work with and Emily as well. We already are reserving for next year and looking forward to our time at chateu surf

Chateau Surf is located 1 block off of the Ocean City Boardwalk. You are an easy walk away from the beach, shopping, restaurants, bars, rides, games, a trolley, a bus stop, and the bay! You get the best of both words with us. Conveniently close to all the ocean city 'action', yet far enough removed that you can still enjoy a quiet, relaxing week.
