About the property

Townhome, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

BEAUTIFUL, ABSOLUTE WATER FRONT LOCATION. Located near end of private, dead-end lane. Two private decks hang out over bay and bay access is steps away. Private dock with covered gazebo is 200 ft away. Boat dock and slip available, no extra charge. Super convenient-walk right in, fresh linens will already be on beds, clean towels hanging.

EASY, FAMILY FRIENDLY. Park in 2 assigned spaces right in front, walk 20 ft and enter your beautiful vacation townhome. No elevators, no huge parking lots to haul luggage through. Walk into soaring 25 foot entry, through large, hardwood-floored LR, out onto the deck, and enjoy breathtaking water panoramas. Fully equipped kitchen, full size HE washer/dryer, central AC, 3 HDTVs with 80+channel cable, internet and WiFi. One BR with bath is on ground floor for family members who dislike stairs. Master BR has its own bath and a second deck overlooking bay. BRs 3 and 4 also have individual adjoining baths. Convenient water hoses at entry and on deck wash away the sand after a day at beach.

WONDERFUL LOCATION. Peaceful, family oriented community, close to major attractions: just steps away from bay beach and private dock, 1 block to Ocean City Tennis Complex, 2 blocks to restaurants and bus serving all of Ocean City; 3 blocks (700 yards) to white sand Atlantic Ocean beach with life guards; easy walk to local hot spots like Fager's Island, Dead Freddies and Seacrets; 1 mile to jet boats, para-sailing and minigolf; 2.5 miles to Jolly Roger amusement park and deep sea fishing; 10 great golf courses within 10 miles, including Lighthouse Sound, ranked in nation's top 100 by Golf Magazine and Rum Pointe, ranked 5th in MD by GolfWeek. Assateague National Seashore and its wild ponies are 27 miles.

NO-HASSLES. No need to rent linens or bring your own as most OC rentals require. Local manager will meet you at arrival with cold drinks; ensure your internet and WiFi connections work; get your 3 HDTVs and DVD up and ready; show you how everything works. No driving to an unfamiliar reservations office to get keys, fumble with locks. If you prefer complete flexibility we'll provide digital door code to arrive any time you'd like.

FAMILY ORIENTED: This townhome community is family oriented, so sorry, no college or high school groups. One person in family group must be at least 25 years old.

KEYWORDS: Lovely, large townhome, 1630 sq ft., directly on bay. Family friendly, secluded, easy entrance on ground fl. Three blocks from OC's famous Atlantic Ocean beach. Local manager will meet you at arrival to show you how everything works, and ensure that it does! Linens provided.

About Hugh and Betty Murphy

Why Hugh and Betty Murphy chose Ocean City

Close to all of OC's action, but when you've had enough, great to get away to a peaceful home on the bay.

What makes this townhome unique

Spectacular views. See all of Isle of Wight Bay. Sunsets are indescribably beautiful

Good location, clean house, nice property owners but loud at night

  • 4 of 5

Went with my family and the house was in a great location on the bay with a great view of the sunset over the bay at night. The house owners were very nice to deal with and the house was kept up well. The only problem was on Saturday night because it was close to Fader's bar the music was very loud until 1:30am. If you are going on the weekday or to be out late anyway or can sleep through loud music anyway this is a perfect property.

An Enjoyable Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Traders Cove! The property was well-maintained, in a great location and, from the moment we arrived until we left, the owners went above and beyond to ensure our stay was enjoyable!

Clean, quiet, peaceful, and the BEST owners...excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

Six adults stayed here 09/22 through 09/24 to celebrate a friend's 60th bday. We had a sit-down dinner planned at Fager's for Sat night so this property was perfect.....just a short walk.

The owners, Hugh & Betty Murphy, and their son Doug were so easy going and pleasant. Doug met us at the property (he lives in the same convenient) and showed us around. There was complimentary beer in the fridge and he later dropped off a bottle of wine. We had asked to drop some refrigerated food off earlier than the regular check-in and

Doug was so accommodating!

The property has a bedroom suite on the third floor, two bedrooms on the second floor (one with a balcony, one street-side) and a bedroom downstairs with a half-bath. The downstairs bedroom would be best suited for children as it has a futon with a very thin mattress. The kitchen is fully stocked, even has a Keurig! The lower balcony is where we spent most of our time though.....right on the bay. It's very peaceful.

There is a hotel under construction in the condo complex but because we were there on the weekend it was not a nuisance. All of us loved the was spotlessly clean and well-maintained. Thank you so much to the Murphy family for being so friendly accommodating.....we even got to leave our stuff in the home and enjoy the beach one last time on Sunday because there were no guests scheduled to very nice! We will definitely be reserving this unit again for the next OC excursion!

A beautiful property, with a beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful development in general. This property is in a great location. Nicely decorated and comfortable. The sunset view is beautiful.

The owners, Hugh & Betty, and their son Doug are very easy to deal with and very accommodating.

We will definitely be back next year.

Trader's Cove, Paradise

  • 4 of 5

2nd time staying here. Owners are absolutely hospitable.

At your beckoning if anything would arise. Contacted us during the week to ask if everything was okay and if we needed anything. Bottle of wine & beer available when arriving. Classy!

The view to the Bay is like ''paradise''! Able to float in the Bay off of the private dock on a raft.

Condo is starting to age, but the owners are constantly updating things.

Walking distant to numerous restaurants, bars & nightclubs. Some nights, the music can be heard from Fager's Island, but did not distract us. If a vehicle is needed, short trips.

Only negative, which will be temporary, is the construction of a Marriott across from the condo, out the front door.

Looking forward to a return stay in the future.

Car: recommended

You have to stroll or ride the tram on the famous Ocean City boardwalk. It starts 2.5 miles from this townhome and extends another 2 miles to the pier and amusement rides. It's action packed and carnival-like in some areas, but has great rides for kids, and of course, taffy, cotton-candy, and Thrasher's famous fries. With nearly a hundred beach-side restaurants, the boardwalk is a great place to get your soft-shelled crabs and crab cakes. And the people watching is great!
