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.

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!

wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for a week, the proximity to the beach was great, and having the pool was a bonus. Marcy was great when the toaster died, she brought a new one right away, and when the gas grill was empty a new tank appeared very quickly. The master bed was a very comfortable temperpedic. Lots of room indoor and out for socializing, big living room, screened in porch, and a nice space in the dining room for evening card game when the kids went to sleep!! Thanks Marcy, it was a great vacation, we'll probably be back!!

Beautiful house and great location

  • 5 of 5

My family had a pleasure of staying in this beautiful house with private pool. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip at this house. The house itself is very clean and the location cannot be more perfect. The house is located on a private street with a part of the beach that is not too busy unlike the beach areas on boardwalk. Private pool is fantastic with a grilling area on the side of the pool. The house is just a little over one mile away from boardwalk. One can bike or drive to the boardwalk area which is pleasant with lots of activities for children and street food. The area offers many options for different kind of cuisines at short driving distance from the house. Atlantic City is only about 7 miles away.

The owner is extremely nice and was very responsive to any question i had. We are already planning on visiting this beautiful house and fantastic location next year.

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

My wife and three teenage boys had a great time during our stay. The Gardens section of Ocean City is very quiet. The boardwalk is a 10 minute bike ride from the house, which we enjoyed doing every morning. The access to the beach was easy and it was nice to enjoy the pool on our "down" day. The property is in excellent shape and has a true "home" feel to it. I would definitely return for a future vacation.
