This charming one floor living single home is immaculate, comfortable, sunny and breezy and less that 5 minutes to the beach with no busy streets to cross. It is located in the desirable Gardens section of Ocean City, which is less congested and has some of the the best beaches on the island. With our home, there is no need to spend your vacation in a condo with strangers living upstairs or downstairs or walking up and down a flight of steps during your Ocean City vacation. Enjoy the ease of single-story living with a patio next to your own irrigated yard.
A Life Guard patrolled swimming beach (E. Atlantic) and surfing beach (Waverly) are both an easy walk from the front door. The kids will love TJs ice-cream shop a few doors down as well as Browns’ donuts, which serves donuts that are made fresh right before your eyes. Head out the back of the Gardens to the Longport Bridge where you can connect to Sommers Point or take the short 9 mile ride to the excitement of Atlantic City's casinos, live shows, and great restaurants. Top off your fun-filled days with a delicious cook-out and enjoy the evening on your private patio. After you lock-in your reservation, we will send you a complete list of all of our favorite spots, both on and off the island. It is the wisdom of over 40 summers spent in Ocean City.
Our home is a clean summer beach cottage with hardwood floors throughout the house, a modern eat-in kitchen with seating for 6 and all of the essential appliances that one needs.

My wife and I, along with our three daughters (ages 15, 13 and 9) have been vacationing in OCNJ our entire lives. My wife and I grew up outside of Philadelphia but couldn't stop coming to the Jersey shore even after we moved to the Washington DC area in 1998. We now live in Arlington VA and spend as much time as our schedule allows at the beach. Some of our best family memories were created in Ocean City.
Chris purchased this house in 2013
For many summers we stayed at a home my grandmother owned on 19th street but always dreamed of owning our own little piece of sand in Ocean City. While we had always loved the center of the island, we fell in love with charm, privacy and convenience of the Gardens area of Ocean City. There is an ice-cream shop a few doors down and there are great neighborhood restaurants near-by. The amusement park rides, water park, and shops on the boardwalk are a 15 minute walk and Browns, which serves homemade donuts made fresh before your eyes, is less than a 10 minute walk from the front door.
As you may know, most of the homes in Ocean City are duplexes, with very little privacy. Our home is a single level cottage, with no one living above or below you, giving you more privacy. There is a nice yard, off-street parking and a cute ice-cream shop with the best home-made ice cream in town only a few doors down. The beach is a close 4 minute walk with no busy streets to cross with a surfing beach only 3 blocks away.
If you love riding bikes, walking to the boardwalk, cooking meals for family or guests, or trailing a cart filled with beach supplies for a day in the sand and surf, this little cottage will meet your needs. Call the landlord anytime and he will respond. The cottage is chock full of supplies for all... Even games to play in the backyard!
The home was as advertised and very comfortable for our family of seven. The shed is well stocked with two single bikes and a tandem. There are also four beach chairs and a number of other beach items.
The walk to the beach is short and the beaches at this end of the island are much less crowded than other parts of the island.
Chris was quick to respond and very accommodating. We were able to get in early and when we asked to extend our stay he was quick to accommodate us.
The ice cream shop two doors down has great ice cream.
We had a great time. House was clean, kitchen well stocked. Great location, easy to get to beach, good deli two blocks away, and a restaurant nice to eat in or take out. Just what we needed. An ice cream parlor just two doors away. The only complaint were the beds. Master bedroom ok, but the twin beds in both rooms uncomfortable. Plastic covers, awful, and just uncomfortable. We were there for two weeks, hard to deal with uncomforatable beds that long. Yes, I would recommend this place. Owners obviously care.
Our family has been vacationing down in Ocean City for the past six years and this was our first time renting on the north side of town. We really enjoyed our stay and the amenities offered by the owner, Chris. We had full use of the property including the backyard and shed, which was loaded with stuff for us to use on the beach as well as bikes and still had enough room to store our items. Everything was as advertised and we loved the convenient location. The cottage is 5 minutes to the beach and also a short walk to the northern entrance to the boardwalk. We also loved the fact that the cottage was a single family dwelling so no other renters below or in top of us. The owner Chris also had a nice welcome basket for us that included a nice bottle of wine for the adults and Johnsons popcorn for the kids. We look forward to staying again next summer!
There is a great ice-cream shop only a few doors down, and both swimming and surfing beaches are less than a 5 minute walk.
