About Marcy Shomo

Bob's father built this custom home for their family in 1961. Bob grew up here and is deeply attached to Ocean City and this home. We just finished an extensive renovation.

Why Marcy Shomo chose Ocean City

This is the only home Bob can remember. When he inherited it from his parents we were excited to bring it back to its full potential and use it for ourselves and our guests.

What makes this house unique

This home is unique and wonderful in many ways! So close to the ocean you constantly hear, see and smell the surf. Your guarded beach is 50 feet from the house. The front porch and back yard offer comfortable outdoor seating. The enclosed, screened back porch and landscaped back yard are great for dining or sun bathing while you watch children play in your private, 31 ft long, in ground pool. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly with plenty of street parking. You can ride your bike to the bustling town center or busy boardwalk in 10 minutes! In town you will find lots of shopping in boutiques and department stores and many nice restaurants. Boardwalk activities for kids include arcades, amusement parks with rides and sweets, soft ice cream and miniature golf to name a few. In the end of the day you can get away from the crowd and return to your quiet, peaceful, comfortable home.

What's not to like?

  • 5 of 5

I walked into this house and felt right at home. Built in the 50's, this place is so well taken care of and soooo clean. Super equipped kitchen with all kinds of pots and pans, glasses, etc. Beds are new and very comfortable.

The pool has spoiled me - I will never be able to rent another beach house without a pool. And the beach, steps away. So easy to cart all the stuff and make multiple trips when you feel like it.

The dead end street is so quiet, your kids can ride their bikes up and down the road mid week. The boardwalk is close by and the morning bike rides are fun.

We had a wonderful week, so good that we booked two weeks for next year.

Excellent vacation at the Shomo home! Great location, quiet street. Close to everything but not too close. The Shomo's were ready to help with any questions we had before and during our rental week. We look forward to staying again!

Ocean City Beach House - 912 Seacrest

  • 5 of 5

House and owner were great. House had everything we were looking for: Short walk to beautiful private beach; short drive to great boardwalk for kids; great house with nice pool, outdoor shower, comfortable back enclosed porch, nice front open porch, really nice kitchen, large living room with entertainment equipment, comfortable bedrooms and even a washer dryer. Also the house was nicely decorated and the kitchen had all the stuff you could possibly need. Highly recommend this house.

Wonderful Oceanfront home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the home the 1st week in August, myself, husband, 3 little kids and parents and sister. We had a relaxing week, enjoying the pool in the yard and the easy access to the beach right outside our door. We had a wonderful week away and would definitely stay again if we vacation back in Ocean City!

Best Vacation Rental Ever!

  • 5 of 5

WOW!!Just returned from vacationing at this gem of a house and already booked for next year. My sisters and I have been vacationing with our families in OC for 20 years and have stayed at several vacation rentals. This is by far the best house we have even rented and we ALL LOVED it. It has a large family room, large screened in porch (where we played cards and games in the evening), quiet area, lots of parking, gas grill, beautiful BIG bedrooms, practically beach front, CLEAN, and a spectacular back yard with a beautiful POOL. Marcy is an attentive owner and really cares about the property. She goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is perfect. Thanks Marcy and Bob, see you next year!
