Description

We are on 13th Street between West and Asbury, four blocks from the beach and bay, close to Asbury shops & eateries, steps from Wawa, Wells Fargo, Piccini.

This 122 year old, three floor home sleeps 11 with an open floor plan on the main floor. Granite kitchen with stainless appliances has an island that seats three, dining table seats six, and a card table is available with four extra chairs for additional seating. Relax on the sofa and love seat in front of the Roku Smart TV (and pull over a little two seater for extra TV seating), or pull up some rug around the coffee table to play games. Enjoy your morning coffee on the porch 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). All bedrooms have window air conditioners.

We are four blocks from the beach and four to the bay, 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!

We are best fit for: People who like that laid back, colorful, quirky old shore home vibe; do not need a lot of space to store bikes, and are okay with one car in the driveway. If you need everything new or multiple driveway parking spots, you will be more comfortable in another vacation rental home and there are so many great ones out there!

Parking: There is parking for one car in the driveway, you can block the mouth of the driveway with another car, and additional cars can find street parking around the house. You will think you can park two cars in the driveway but cannot without blocking the ground floor apartment door. It also makes putting trash and recycles out very difficult.

Air conditioning: The house is 122 years old and does not have central air. Main floor cooled by mini split. Every bedroom has a window AC unit and fans.

TV: There are only two TVs in the house – living room and on the third floor. Both are Roku Smart TVs. Hulu live is available and must remain logged into the house account at all times. We have other streaming options also & guests can use their own as well.

You bring: sheets for each bed (can be rented through linen service), bath towels, beach towels

We have: Wireless Internet, eight beach tags, outdoor shower (shared with ground level). Window AC in each bedroom. Wall AC on main floor. TV with Hulu Live, DVD on the top floor, books to borrow, and games to play in living room. Beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, and sand toys to use in cubby under house (outdoor items not checked weekly but replaced when we're told they need replacing). Kitchen hand towels and bath hand towels and towel mats are provided as are starters of TP, coffee filters, hand soap, dish liquid, dishwasher tabs, tin foil, sandwich bags, plastic wrap, napkins, etc. Most of the time our starters can get you through much of the week and you can replace if you need more but otherwise, we'll replace when you check out. Paper items are not replenished by Owner during stay.

Age: You must be 26 years old to sign our lease. No prom, senior week, or teenager vacation inquiries. Don't waste our time, and parents, don't call and rent on behalf of your teens. Subletting, renting to provide housing for unaccompanied minors, or renting on behalf of someone else is a breach of contract and guests will be asked to leave with no refunds.

Pets: We are dog-friendly with an additional $100 fee. Dogs must be current on shots, heartworm, and flea/tick meds - OC has flea issues and the whole East Coast has tick issues due to warmer winters. Flea treatment is not negotiable. If your dog leaves a mess, expect an additional charge upon check out. Dogs only, no other animals.

House rules: maximum occupancy is 11, no eating in bedrooms, smoking all substances outside only, parking only one car in the driveway & not blocking the apartment door, flushing only toilet paper and natural waste, putting trash and recycle to curb on designated days, no removing or adding anything to walls, and avoiding Owner under bed storage bins.

Cleaning fee: Not charged for weekly rentals with the caveat that cleaning crews are there to do turnover cleaning and sanitizing in a short amount of time between guests. You must clean up after yourself during the week. Excessive cleaning fees based on time for four people plus materials will be passed along to guest at cost.

To reserve: A signed contract is due within 24 hours and a deposit is due within seven days. Reservations are not guaranteed until both contract and deposit are received and if not received within the dates provided, the week is still available and can be rented to someone else.

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!
