About Paul

Owners purchased the property in 2005 and continue to make investments in it each year to remodel and maintain a comfortable, safe, spacious and clean home. Our goal is that you want to come back each year to create your family memories in this home. We are professionals in various industries and reside in Chester County, PA.

Paul purchased this condo in 2005

Why Paul chose Ocean City

OCNJ is rated as one of the best beaches in America and has a long history of being a family friendly shorepoint! The island itself is beautiful and easy to navigate. Constant upgrades are made to surround you with beautiful beaches, excellent shopping, great food and a small town experience. We brought this property to enjoy and share with others all that Ocean City has to offer!

What makes this condo unique

The unique benefit of this property is you are in the middle of it all. South enough to be on the quiet side of OCNJ with great large beaches. Yet, only 14 blocks from where the boardwalk begins. We also know how important it is to many dog owners to bring that special member of the family along. Rooms are very spacious. There is no cramped feeling in the home. 90+% of the interior of the home has been completely updated over the past few years.

Enjoy a vacation with your family for between $120-$210 a night in a home that combines the character of the shore from past decades with the modern amenities and conveniences you'd expect.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Paul

My family and I experienced a relaxing fun filled few days. My 21-month-old grandson loved running on the expansive beach, the boardwalk sights, and a ride on Thomas the train! Food, family, and Ocean City magic!

A few surprises...

  • 4 of 5

This house has a lovely, beach decor, nice breezes from the estuary, and is in a quiet neighborhood. However, the street it faces is very busy with traffic most of the day, but thankfully gets quiet after 10 pm. Luckily, we brought TP, paper towels, hangers, trash bags, sponge, and dish soap; these were lacking when we arrived. Beds were comfortable and air conditioning perfect.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great time Wendy! Thank you for your complimentary text message when you checked out. All renters receive an email from me at least a week before their stay. In the email I provide details of what supplies a renter needs to bring. For any item that I provide, I have a service to make sure it is in the home at the beginning of their stay. I provide my cell phone number and email address to all renters. They can text me, call me, or email me if they have any questions.

Wonderful family rental

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th year staying in this rental and we love it. We bring our two dogs who love sitting in the living room and watching the cars and people go by. The home is comfortable and very beachy! There are all the amenities of home: wifi, cable, AC, everything! There are even board games for the occasional rainy night in. The extra roll-away bed is perfect and allows for an extra guest (or two). The house is always clean upon our arrival and the owner is very responsive to needs. He even ran out and replaced the fridge when it broke during our 1st stay! Amazing! It's only 2.5 blocks to the beach and in the quiet south end. Having no houses across the street allows for beautiful bay views to watch incoming storms or sunsets. The neighbors are pleasant and quiet as well. This is the perfect family vacation getaway and we will be back every year!!

Great stay and location.

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location for the beach. Loved the Southend!

Also, the renter allowed us to bring our two dogs, which most renters do not allow.

My family and I were very appreciative of this.

Also, the renter was very responsive in a timely manner to all questions and requests.

Awesome vacation! Enjoyed every minute!

  • 5 of 5

This location was perfect for us and the home had everything we needed. The property was clean and kept well. We were very grateful for the code access which was super convenient. Paul is an excellent property manager, very responsive to questions and interested in our comfort and satisfaction! We visited from California so it was not our usual pack the car and go vacation. Paul offered many solutions for additional rentals (linens, beach chairs, etc) to make our stay more comfortable and enjoyable. We will definitely come back to this property if we are visiting OC again! Thank you!

Greta place at the beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was a pleasant surprise....very comfortable and homey.

The laminate floors were great for the dog and the house itself was well equipped.

The beds were comfortable and the patio was great for lounging.

An icemaker would have been a nice touch, but other than that it was great!!!

Long weekend in OC

  • 3 of 5

The location was good as the sunsets were visible from the porch, one problem, there was only one chair. The space was adequate with thereto bedrooms, galley kitchen, pots, pans, dishes,and a dishwasher. The problems were with the lack of cleanliness In the kitchen was a filthy scatter rug which Paul told me to throw out as they get one each year. The floors were dirty and sticky, so upon arriving my family bought a Swiffer and proceeded to clean the floors. There were dog hairs on the television controls and dust on furniture. The couch cushions were black! Once we cleaned the weekend went smoothly and was enjoyed

Owner's Response: Hello Beth. Glad to hear you enjoyed the location, beautiful sunsets and time together as a family. So sorry to hear you cleaned on Thursday. Future guests, please do not clean. The instructions I send to all guests prior to arrival state if you are not satisfied with the cleanliness of the place, call or text me and I will have the professional cleaners come back and redo what I pay them to do. In the 10 year relationship I've had with the cleaners I have had to request their return twice out of approximately 150 guests. But I am happy to do it as many times as necessary no matter how infrequent it may be. Cleaners cleaned the place on 9/22. The guest entered the property on 9/24. I received an email on Saturday (9/26) from the guests that the place was not clean 2 days prior at check in and they cleaned it up. This was particularly surprising to hear on Saturday since I was on the phone with the guest for 30 minutes on Thursday after check in helping them navigate the heat/AC system, and having them ask me if I wanted them to put a 2x2 foot rug in the kitchen in the washing machine (cleaners do not do wash). To make it simple for the guest and not have them do anything other than enjoy themselves, I instructed them to just throw it out. I ended the call on Thursday asking if everything else was ok and if anything else came up to contact me just like they had already done, to which the reply was yes/ok on both accounts. I will address any issue ASAP as long as I am made aware of it timely and the problem remains addressable. But, again future renters - please don't clean. After all you are on vacation!! I am more than accessible and responsive to anything you need. Just give me a call and I will take care of it. Follow-up : inspected the property. There is a 4 inch by 2 inch ink stain on one of the seat cushions, likely from a black marker. Upholstery will be repaired/replaced before next rental season.
