This 120 year old, three floor home sleeps 11 with an open floor plan on the main floor allowing for the whole family to gather. Granite kitchen with stainless appliances has an island that seats four, dining table seats six, and a card table is available with four extra chairs for group dinners. Relax on the sofa and love seat in front of the flat screen TV, or pull up some rug around the coffee table to play games. Enjoy your morning coffee on the deck, or a book in the afternoon shaded by the porch awnings. Powder room located off the kitchen. There are two bedrooms (one with king bed, one with queen bed) and two full baths on the second floor. Up another flight of steps are two bedrooms on the third floor, connected by a door (walk through bedroom three to get to bedroom four). One bedroom has a queen and single bed, and one bedroom has a queen and bunk beds (two singles).

We are four blocks from the beach right in the middle of everything - walkable to anything downtown and the world famous Ocean City boardwalk. Ocean City is truly a great town to spend time in, perfect for families and groups of friends. Plenty to do and see! If you like that laid back, colorful, quirky old shore home vibe, we are a good fit and we'd love to have you stay with us. If you need everything new, you will be more comfortable in another vacation rental home and we hope you find a great one!

Home Away from Home

Stephanie Doyle was a perfect host. The Doyle's home was clean and completely stocked with anything a family needs during their stay. The home was in a perfect location with parking. The rooms were spacious and our family of 7 had more than enough room. I would definiely recommend this home!

Beach getaway

Two families with 7 kids and a dog with plenty of room. Kids space upstairs was great and having a door separate the rooms meant the littlest ones could sleep. Beds were comfortable. Everything you could need in the kitchen. Walking distance to everything. Also included were chairs, umbrellas, toys for the beach. Owner was great to work with. Hoping to go back and would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful week!

Stephanie's house is super cute! We loved all the pictures and beach decor. The kitchen has everything you need and we loved that the beach tags were included. The house is close to the beach and the boardwalk. We never had to move our car that week. Stephanie was super nice and even gave us a banner to hang up since my sister got engaged our first night there. She was very easy to get a hold of if we had a question. Would highly recommend this house! It was a wonderful vacation!

Great beach house

Very clean. Fun decor!! Owner makes every effort to make you feel at home and relaxed. Provided so much that made life easy such as paper towels, cleaning supplies, beach tags, beach chairs, sand toys... The list goes on. My kids had an entire floor to themselves and had a blast. The location was great -close to everything you could possibly want! My pup loved naps on the porch as well. We all had a great week!!

Clean, Homey and Perks!

This home was great for us! The Doyles left beach tags and chairs and umbrella for her guests to save us the cost of renting..left help yourself bin in bathroom which my grandaughters loved! Dish towels, tons of dishes, plenty of paper towels, trash bags all of which we did not have to purchase. Having Wifi was great too..Huge screen TV and the best was it was pet friendly!!! Thanks for making our stay feeling homelike!

Great location!

My family comes to OC every other year and this was our first year at this property. I loved how convenient it was to food, boardwalk and the beach. The location was great, kitchen well stocked, owners super friendly and responsive! Love how the house was decorated and how there were lots of beds available for everyone. My only wish is for a washer/dryer which hopefully will be coming in the future :)
My family would definitely stay here again! Thanks Stephanie!

lovely stay within blocks of the beach

I chose this house for our family vacation because of its size and the fact we might be able to bring a dog. After talking to the owner, she approved the dog we were bringing. So, we brought seven adults, two young boys and a bulldog mix to the beach for a week. It was family pandemonium but the house accommodated us all quite well. We even cooked in five out of seven nights. There was plenty of room and the third bathroom made life much easier. We had a minor plumbing issue but the owner got back to us within an hour and we had a plan in place. It was easily fixed and we went about the week.
We highly recommend this house. Cannot thank Stephanie enough!

Spacious, roomy and comfortable! A short walk to the boardwalk and beach.

Not having booked through VRBO, wasn't sure what to expected. The owner, Stephanie, is a dream to work with! The house was affordable, roomy and downright beautiful! Plenty of space for our families. We didn't feel like we were on top of each other. Loved having a front porch to drink my morning coffee, and to enjoy all day and night.
A short 4 block walk to the boardwalk and beach-we went back and forth all day and night and our teenagers could just go on their own without their folks. Asbury Avenue is a quick walk around the corner and is full of cute, eclectic, arty shops mixed in with delicious foodie restaurants and stores. Check out the farmers market at the Tabernacle church on Wednesdays where local food and art stands are featured.
Ocean City is a a dry town, so there are no bars or liquor stores, but you can BYO in. Its quiet all night! I didn't have to worry about my kids being on their own at the boardwalk. The boardwalk has theme nights so be sure to look at the schedule. Next time I will try to bring our bikes because the town is very bike friendly. There are bike rentals, but it would be cheaper to bring them from home.
We've stayed in Atlantic City and Wildwood before but my teenage daughter fell in love with OC so much she took a selfie and captioned it never going to leave!
I'm already thinking of coming back next summer. Best week I've had in a long time! I can't thank you enough!
