Overview

Merion Park House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

Treat your family to this Luxurious, First Floor, Beachfront Home poised in America's Greatest Family Beach Resort at 4125 Central Avenue. Meticulously appointed with patio furniture, stereo and gas barbecue grill, the majestic 25' x 40' Beachfront deck is perfect for a family cookout or sunbathing!

Relax as you listen to the sea gulls and the waves break and smell the salt air through the whispering ocean breeze. Walk a few steps to the life guard protected beach through the picturesque sand dune path located directly in front of this tranquil vacation get-away. There's something so enchanting about the rhythm of the ocean. This is the premier beach where memories are made!

This lovely vacation home is ultra-clean, well maintained and tastefully decorated. It has been completely renovated! The deck and the interior living area are much larger than most of the homes on the island. Comfortably sleeping eleven, this home has four large bedrooms (2 are 12' x 14.5', the other 2 are 12' x 12.5') each with lots of closet space.

The Master Suite features 37' LCD HDTV, iPod docking station and ceiling fan. It's private bath features oak comfort-height vanity with granite top & under-mount sink and over-sized whirlpool tub with shower. Three bedrooms feature queen beds and ceiling fans. The fourth bedroom features two sets of new bunk beds, LCD HDTV with DVD movie library and a Jack & Jill bathroom that is perfect for children! A foyer with cathedral ceiling leads you into an elegant living room (16.5' x 19.5') featuring a cozy gas fireplace, over-sized ceiling fan, 5.1 surround sound, LCD HDTV, DVD movie library, premium cable TV with the HBO/Showtime package and DVR. Enjoy the spectacular view through a wall of windows facing the beach!

The beautiful dining room opens up to the dramatic beachfront deck where you can bask in the sun, take in the breathtaking sunrise, or just read a book! The stunning gourmet kitchen is appointed with Italian tile flooring, a natural quartz counter tops, stainless steel under-mount sink, cabinetry with soft-close drawers, dishwasher, microwave, instant hot water, ice maker, garbage disposal, filtered drinking water and a breakfast bar for additional seating. It is complete with small appliances, cookware, dishware, flatware, glassware and necessities to provide for your family needs. The laundry room features full size washer, dryer, iron and ironing board. Rinse off in private enclosed outdoor hot/cold shower for a perfect conclusion to a wonderful day at the beach.

Top three reasons to stay in a beachfront property:

1. You don’t have to lug your chairs, cooler and beach stuff back and forth. You’re only 2 steps from the sand.

2. No hassle to get a drink or a snack.

3. Clean bathrooms, air conditioning and shade from the sun are steps away.

Ocean City has an outstanding program of special events, recreational programs, concerts, and a quaint, charming downtown full of unique specialty stores. An active arts center, historical museum, and the resort's famed Music Pier make Ocean City culturally appealing.

The ocean and bay offer every water sport imaginable including surfing, sailing, fishing, whale watching and boating.

Jump start your day with an early morning bike ride on Ocean City’s famous three mile boardwalk. Enjoy cotton candy and saltwater taffy while the children enjoy the amusement parks, arcades, water park, miniature golf and much more! In July & August, trolley service is available to and from the boardwalk.

Gourmet deli, pizza, home-made ice cream, and other fun summer treats are conveniently located within walking distance. Public tennis and basketball courts, golf, bike rentals, groceries, and the awesome Sandcastle Park - Our Miracle on 34th Street playground are just a few blocks away.

For a change of pace, Atlantic City is a 12 mile drive. Here you can enjoy the glitter, shows, casinos and restaurants of America’s Playground. The Cape May County Zoo is 17 miles away. The charming Victorian town of Cape May is 30 miles away.

About Samantha

We live within 45 minutes from our property. Prior to each stay, we inspect our home and address any needed maintenance. During the off season, we enjoy rejuvenating our home with fresh decor, and planning renovations. We want our home to feel like your home when you stay.

Samantha purchased this house in 2004

Why Samantha chose Ocean City

We vacationed in Ocean City each summer and loved the action on the boardwalk but also needed peace and serenity at the end of a long day. So, we purchased our beachfront home on the south end of the island in a neighborhood referred to as millionaires’ row. It’s a quiet hamlet of large privately-owned homes just two miles from the boardwalk.

What makes this house unique

Just two steps from our beachfront deck's raised sunning area is the path through the dunes, leading to the life-guard-protected sandy beach and blue ocean. Our over-sized deck is perfect for a family barbecue, sunbathing or star gazing. The home theater system provides surround sound in the great room and stereo on the deck. Our home is a great get away year round. During the off season, it offers the privacy and tranquility of a private beach!

Best Beachfront Rental Ever!

  • 5 of 5

I can’t say enough great things about this property. We rented this home during the Nights in Venice celebration, the most popular (and crowed) week of the summer. The beachfront deck is very large and perfect for entertaining. We connected our phone to the home theater system and enjoyed our favorite playlists on the deck, while barbequing with friends. The owners are very accommodating and went overboard to make sure we had everything that we needed. The kitchen is amazing. The bedrooms are large with very comfortable beds. The home was very clean & well maintained. The owners really take pride in their home. The interior decoration is fantastic. We will definitely return to this property. Thank you, Samantha for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. You really made us feel at home during our stay. We really didn’t want to leave!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our home. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your vacation. We recently purchased the Weber gas grill and also provide a charcoal grill and plenty of furniture for entertaining. Our deck is one step from the sand and directly in front of the life guard protected beach. During the summer months, parking near the boardwalk is problematic (both difficult to find & expensive). As you know, the trolleys pass by the house every 15 minutes. Your cars can remain safe in our covered parking area, while you enjoy door-to-door round-trip boardwalk transportation. After a full day of fun, you can return to the serenity of Millionaires’ Row, for an evening of star gazing while you listen to the waves break.

Much Better Than We Expected!

  • 5 of 5

This rental property is fantastic! The location could not be better. The large deck touches the sand. The path through the dune is directly in front of the home. If you stay elsewhere, you’re forced to walk a distance to get to the beach. A great playground, a restaurant and an ice cream stand are all in walking distance. The interior is much nicer than the pictures. All of the rooms are well decorated and much larger than everywhere we’ve stayed. The kitchen is spectacular! There is plenty to keep the kids occupied, even on rainy days. It’s evident that the owners take pride in their home. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. You will not be disappointed if you rent this property. We will definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: It was great to have you back! Most families, like yours, return year after year. We always try to make our guests feel at home. It’s hard to keep the pictures current - it seems like we are always renovating something. We are happy to hear that you like the new kitchen and interior decorating.

Great Beach Front Property - Lots of Room for a Family Get Together

  • 4 of 5

My parents, sister and I, along with our families, rented this house over Easter weekend. It was a lovely home and had lots of space for all of us. The kitchen was well stocked and we had everything we needed for our Easter dinner. The bedrooms were large and beds were comfortable. Loved having the large deck and grill! It was great being right on the beach and liked that the kids could go down to the beach without crossing any roads. We will definitely be renting this property again!

Great vacation rental

  • 4 of 5

This was an excellent property!!! We would definitely return again. House is clean and well maintained. Just walk out to the deck and up the path and you will be on the beach. House had everything we needed for our weekend getaway. The owners were easy to get a hold of.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure speaking with you. We live close by and are always willing to do whatever we can to give you the best beachfront vacation possible. We are currently shampooing the carpeting, updating the chase lounges on the deck, installing a privacy fence and putting in a raised flower bed using an EP Henry retaining wall. Memorial Day is just around the corner!

Beautiful Property - Relaxing- Wonderful Views

  • 5 of 5

The home was just lovely. Warm and very welcoming with all the conveniences and comforts we needed. It was absolutely perfect! Clean, well kept and amenities were in abundance. The rooms were spacious and accommodated all of us very comfortably. The views were fabulous and we spent lots of time on the beach. At night we laid on the deck and watched the stars, just beautiful. The South End location was so convenient as well. We will be returning for sure.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. We were busy painting and redecorating over the winter and are happy to hear that you are pleased. After a summer day of hustle and bustle on the boardwalk, we love to stargaze from the deck. It's a peaceful, romantic way to unwind. In the morning, our beachfront deck is the perfect place to watch the sun rise over the ocean. With the beach only a few steps away, its a great place to spend your whole day! If your next vacation plans include the Jersey shore, we hope you come back to see us!
