This was my first HomeAway rental and Alex made it easy and painless. His communication was great from our initial inquiry up until our checkout. The views of the bay are AMAZING to say the least. We took full advantage of the amenities and were able to fish/crab off the piers. The location is so close to Ocean City's boardwalk [walking distance] and is a convenient bus ride away from popular OC destinations like Seacrets. Alex's home was meticulously clean upon our arrival, which we really appreciated. Central air worked amazing as well. Our tiny little gripe was that the queen bed was sunken in in the middle, but nonetheless, that did not hinder our awesome vacation! Thanks Alex!
