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 Gardens

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.

OC at its best

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect property and location in OC. From the private pool to the uncrowded beach (during 4th of July week!) this vacation made me fall in love with OCNJ all over again. The owners are lovely and very responsive as well. Looking forward to next year already!

Very relaxing...close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely time! Each day was better than the last. Being so close to the almost private and secluded beach was wonderful and then being able to jump in the pool afterward was marvelous! Our family had a BarBQ with the gas grill. Nice touch. House was comfortable and cheery. Will definitely revisit for our next beach vacation. Thank you, Marcy, you were very accommodating.

Wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

Very nice, comfortable home with a great location to the beach. Could watch grandkids playing in the sand right from the front porch. Plenty of parking for our 3 trucks on a quiet, dead-end street. Low traffic area made it nice for the kids to ride their bikes. Enjoyed the "almost private" beach, and when necessary, just a short walk to the guarded beach. Loved the pool. Would definitely rent again.

This was the perfect home away from home! The house is steps from the beautiful, nearly private beach. The boardwalk is only a mile away. Two couples and four children fit perfectly in this home. The pool was just what we needed after exploring each day. We hope to come again next year!
