This little condo was perfect for my Ocean City NJ getaway! Even though it was small, there was plenty of room for all my stuff (I’m not a light packer!) and a couple of guests.
I loved the beachy decor. It was charming, clean and comfortable. Everything I needed was supplied from toilet paper to aluminum foil (perhaps left from prior guests). Even a large cube charger was provided in the bedroom. I brought my own towels and linens. A couple hooks in the bathroom would have been nice. 4 beach tags were provided, which was a big plus!
The location couldn’t have been better, just a very short walk to the beach and boardwalk. It really was in the heart of everything!
The pullout couch could have been more comfortable, and perhaps the host can include a blanket for the living room guests.
There was a bike rack, outdoor hose/shower for rinsing sandy feet and a clothesline in the back. There were a couple plastic chairs on the front walk in front of the unit (which is on the first floor) but they were on the flimsy side so I used my own.
I was allotted one parking space, which was super convenient. Guests parked far away on the street where it was free parking, and I gave them a lift to and fro when necessary.
The biggest negative was the actual beach. I hadn’t been to OC in years, and much of the beach had been converted to sand dunes and much has eroded, so the beach was extremely crowded. We had to set up our chairs on (and in) the water’s edge because there was rarely any other place to sit. People set up ginormous canopies and tent structures, which caused quite an obstacle course to navigate. But it’s still the beach so I found a way to ignore all that and enjoyed it just the same!
Riding my bike on the boardwalk every morning and joining up with a local Pickleball group were a couple of the wonderful activities I enjoyed. Of course, I also strolled the boardwalk during the days and evenings, sampling the best pizza and custard in the world (sorry, Manco and Manco. I prefer Three Brothers from Italy!).
Thank you, Karen, for offering your adorable condo. I had a lovely and wonderful OC beach vacation. I would definitely stay here again, although I would probably explore a home where the beach isn’t as crowded next time.
