About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-9)

This beautiful vaulted-ceiling loft home features three bedrooms (master bedroom loft overlooks living room); two full baths; Cathedral Ceiling living room with two-story, floor-to-ceiling, sound-proofed windows and hardwood floors; full kitchen, dining room, Family (TV) room with hardwood floors, front slate porch and large rear deck with gas grill, table and chairs, and greenery.

Furniture is a fine mix of new and antique pieces. It is located 4 1/2 blocks from the famous Ocean City Boardwalk and one block from the downtown Ocean City shopping and restaurant district between tenth and 11th Streets on West Avenue.

This 'downtowner' is a must-see for families looking to rent an affordable LARGE home for vacation, but still have the convenience of walking to all Ocean City attractions. This is not your typical rental. It's a home away from home. This smoke-free property rents quickly for the summer season.

About Steve Kearns - OWNER

Hello, I am Stephen Kearns, a Broadway and Concert tour manager. I am 'on the road' much of the year. Over the span of my career, I have managed Broadway and family entertainment shows including the 'Grease' National Tour starring Frankie Avalon, 'The Will Rogers Follies' National Tour starring Larry Gatlin, 'Sesame Street Live', 'The Wiggles', and many more. I am currently managing 'The Color Purple' National Tour, and I am one of Frankie Avalon's booking agents. That's a picture of Frankie and me in San Diego.

Steve Kearns - OWNER purchased this house in 2004

Why Steve Kearns - OWNER chose South NJ Shore

My Grandparents owned a summer cottage in Ocean City. We spent our summers 'down the shore.' When it came time to buy a home, I chose Ocean City. My friends in show business can easily visit from NYC, and its a great location to host friends and family.

What makes this house unique

One of the things that I love about our home is the fact that there are two large living areas separated by French doors. Most properties in Ocean City only have one great room. The place just has a good, comfortable vibe. Not your typical OC rental.

Close to everything! No need to drive anywhere!

  • 5 of 5

Steve was an excellent host and spent a few minutes to introduce himself. He was available 24/7 by cell phone. The location was perfect! Only 5 blocks to the beach/boardwalk and right behind downtown OC. The two floors were nice and big! We had two little ones and 4 adults with plenty of room to spare. Highly recommend!

Beautiful home, great location, and they love dogs!

  • 5 of 5

The house could not be more beautiful, or better maintained. We had a great time in Ocean City. The beach is about four blocks away, and the dog beach is about a 10-minute drive. The landlord/owner, Steve, lives on the first floor and is very helpful and accommodating. I would highly recommend the place, and I hope to be back in the future.

A fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

We just returned back from a week's stay here; my wife and I and our 3 daughters absolutely loved the house, location, and the time spent. The house is clean, well kept, and extremely functional - especially for kids. Short walk to the beach and boardwalk was easy to navigate, we also loved how close we were to the shops, Starbucks, and many resturants. There is also a great authentic Mexican resturant a few yards away. The owner of the house Steve was great to work with and made sure our expectations were met. Highly recommend this house.

Perfect early summer vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Decided to take an early vaction this year, and so happy we chose to stay with Stephen. The house was immaculate and spacious, and had all the amenities you'd ever need. All of the extra touches such as beach tags, chairs, and even some toys & games were only bested by the service Stephen provided. He told us to text him for anything we needed and was always available. One day while grilling on the huge deck, we ran out of propane. Stephen had arranged for a new tank to be delivered before our steaks even had a chance to get cold! I look forward to staying at his property again next year.

Enjoyable New Year's experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our families wanted to get away for New Year's with our families and this place was wonderful! Very warm and spacious, extremely clean and near all activities in Ocean City. We loved the 2 living rooms and that we could see the New Year's fireworks from the back deck. We would recommend this property to anyone with kids, pets or just looking for a relaxing time!

Best house on the block!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous vacation! Stephen, the owner, was super friendly and knows Ocean City like the back of his hand. He kept us up on all the local activities AND the best places to eat! The house was gorgeous, spacious and super clean. AND fido got to come with us! Rating this home and vacation on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the best...we easily rate this one a 10! We got a whole lot of vacation for an amazing price. There was only one problem...we could not bring the house home with us! You simply have to rent this home!
