Development Name: N/A
Rental ID: 7788
Listing Level: Diamond
Available: Booking for 2022
Weekly rentals only in summer season except the week of June 11, 2022 - Monday through Friday or Saturday rental available that weekend only.
We are best fit for: People who like that laid back, colorful, quirky old shore home vibe; do not need a lot of outdoor space to store bikes; and are okay with one car in the driveway. If you need everything new, you will be more comfortable in another vacation rental home and there are so many great ones out there!
Location: 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 121 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!
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 and cannot without blocking the ground floor apartment door. It also makes putting trash and recycles out difficult.
Air conditioning: The house is 121 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 & outside of Hulu guests can use their own.
You bring: sheets for each bed (can be rented through linen service), bath towels (can be rented through linen service), 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. Smart TV with Hulu live/Netflix, books to borrow, and games to play in living room. Beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, and sand toys to use in cubby under house (we do not check outdoor items after each guest, please let us know if something breaks while you're here or is broken when you get here, we replace ASAP from places in town). We provide starter supplies of tin foil, plastic wrap, sandwich bags, napkins, toilet paper, dish liquid, dishwasher liquid, spices, hand soap, cleaning supplies, coffee filters, new sponge for each check in, paper towels, spices, etc (if you are unsure if something is there, please ask!). Most of the times our supplies will get you through the week, if not you must replace if you still need and if you don't, we will replace when you leave. We have reusable bags and a small soft cooler for your use
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. It is cause for immediate eviction with no refund.
Pets: We are dog-friendly with an additional $100 fee. Dogs must be current on shots 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.
Cleaning fee: Not charged for weekly rentals except in cases of excessive cleaning. Since this is our home and not a hotel, please keep it relatively tidy during the week. Guests should leave house in reasonable shape upon departure.
To reserve: A signed rental agreement is due within 24 hours and a deposit is due within seven days. Payment schedule is flexible, discuss with owner. No tax or fee on direct booking through Shore Summer Rentals. 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. Renting on behalf of someone else or subletting is a violation of our contract.
Payment: We accept payment via PayPal (you add 3% to cover the credit card fees if you use a credit card), Venmo, or personal check.
Security Deposit: A separate $350 check must be provided for refundable security deposit - that portion is check only and is not cashed unless something bad has happened. In over six years we have not cashed a security deposit check. It's a mutual respect thing - please don't be our reason to cash one.
