Hugh and Betty Murphy, shown here with their son, Doug, traveled widely as work took them to UK, Japan and Dubai. Living now in Ocean City, they find the beach scene and attractions best on the east coast.
Hugh and Betty Murphy purchased this townhome in 2006
Close to all of OC's action, but when you've had enough, great to get away to a peaceful home on the bay.
Spectacular views. See all of Isle of Wight Bay. Sunsets are indescribably beautiful
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.
Very nice. The porch was great to watch the sunset.
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.
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.
The condo was very clean and updated with all the amenities one could need at the beach (grill, towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, fishing equipment, etc). The place has a great view of the bay and excellent balcony for relaxing and enjoying the OC sun. Easily sleeps 6 with everyone having their own sleeping quarters and bathroom. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants a nice place to stay in OC that is close to everything, but also quite and relaxing.
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!
