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. Freshly laundered sheets and pillow cases will be on the beds and clean towels hung in baths when you arrive, so 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.

Why Hugh and Betty Murphy chose Maryland

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

Very comfortable place; incredible bayfront views, and great location

This was our 4th annual weekend stay here. Very nice place, a hard to find 4 BR unit, right on the water, and easy walk to fun night spots.

We loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The condo was very clean and right on the water. We enjoyed the manager/landlord's hospitality. It made it a more personal stay instead of having to check in and out of a hotel. He made us feel very welcome in the house and we plan on staying there again. They had equipment in the house we were able to use on the beach as well. I highly recommend it to anyone.

Simply excellent

  • 5 of 5

I decided at the last minute to bring in the New Year in Ocean City. I packed up my clothes and took two great friends along for the ride. When I got to this home...I was more than excited. It was even better than what the pictures showed online. The water view is incredible....the house was clean...and the owners were very nice. I didn't realize how big the house was. The private loft on the third level was truly a surprise. Hands down, one of the best places I've stayed in Ocean City. I will be back.

Great location, convenient to everything OC has to offer.

  • 4 of 5

First off I was skeptical about staying on the bay. Don't be! Best spot ever. Fished off the first floor deck, crabbed off the dock gazebo and took hundreds of sunset photos.

The house was very well equipped with everything you could need. Having the owners on site was convenient in case you need anything..... which we didn't. It was nice getting a personal tour culminating with the fridge..... complete with chilled wine, beer soft drinks and water.

The overall condition of the house is what I have come to expect from busy rentals. It can use some repairs and a good cleaning but they are cosmetic only and would mean someone would miss out on a great time in the OC!!! This is the only reason we didn't give this property 5 stars.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The place is very nice. It was super clean and the owners were great. Doug was always around if u needed him, but not invasive at all. The location is fantastic. Block to the beach, and the views on the bay are fantastic. There is construction going on in front of the place (new hotel), but didn't pose any problems. It's right across the bay from Fagers, so music does go each night till late, but that was fine for us. Slept 8 of us easily and each room is decently private so you're not on top of each other. Its not modern, needs some updating, but for a rental, has pretty much everything you need and it is clean. Crab pots were a bonus. The grill needs some help, but workable. Overall, was great.

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!
