Mad Men Beach House
You have never experienced Ocean City like this before…
As you step through the front door of this 1,248 square foot home, you’re immediately drawn to the beautiful sight of water shimmering in the sunlight, framed by the two sliding glass doors. It’s at this moment that you know your vacation has officially begun! The first thing you’ll want to do is go out on the deck and take it all in. The 100 inch projector screen and projector will make for some amazing memories eating Fisher popcorn on the deck snuggled up in the fall/winter or a rainy beach evening in the spring/summer! Now, don’t unpack yet – just grab a cold one, sit back on the pillowed lounge chairs and listen: no, you’re not hearing the coastal highway… you’re not hearing rowdy teenagers… what you’re hearing is quiet! If you listen closely, you may hear the water lapping on the dock. Or a sea gull calling overhead. Or it may be your own stomach growling just a little as you imagine the hamburgers, steaks, chicken and veggies you can grill on the propane grill right below the deck! Then notice: you’re not on a narrow canal, but it’s like a canal “cul-de-sac” that’s wide and open with plenty of water to turn even a large boat around!
Before you head back inside, check out the private dock that’s now all yours! No need for a fishing license when you fish or crab on your dock! It’s all part of the experience! We also have TWO KAYAKS so you can explore the bay and even do some fishing – yes, they’re fishing kayaks with plenty of room to carry your gear and a snack! Of course, we have two adult and two child-size life-vests, two beach chairs and two Boogie Boards for you to use. Think of the room you’ll save in your vehicle when you drive down, knowing you don’t have to schlep all that gear!
Now walk inside, or should we say, walk back in time, and “make the scene”. You’ll be “On Cloud 9” and feeling pretty “hip” as you take in the “pad”. The open floor plan living space is “retro” and “radioactive” with a beachy flare! But never fear, there is no ’50s era “boob tube” here! The 60-inch smart TV with HD Cable, DVR, ESPN and a Blu-ray DVD player will be perfect to catch up on your favorite flicks after a long relaxing day at the beach. Or turn on some “sounds” with our record player (yes, we have some vinyl records to listen to) which is Bluetooth enabled to play your own playlists from your devices! Plus, it even plays CDs and cassette tapes. Oh, and did I mention we have high-speed internet and central air-conditioning too? Madmen has nothing on us! Does Madmen have a hanging bubble chair? I think not! Your teenagers will have a ball taking selfies in that chair! (Don’t lie, you will too!) You won’t want to “put an egg in your shoe and beat it” here! The only place you’ll want to put an egg is in one of the “pots N pans” in the fully equipped, open-concept kitchen! Stainless steel appliances, Microwave, Coffee Maker, French Press, Toaster, Mixer, Crock-Pot and even an Ice Cream Maker (which makes a fun activity on a rainy day) are all ready for you!
Now sit down at the dining table and look out the two large sliding glass doors and take in the view! If you have babies or kids, don’t worry about packing the Bumbo or the highchair. We’ve got you covered! And clean-up will be a cinch with our washable “mess mat” for your little ones. On that note, we also have an infant/toddler stroller, a pack-and-play (bring your own crib sheets), a high-chair/booster seat, a baby carrier, a radio for white noise, along with some kiddie toys, puzzles and board games. And don’t think those board games are just for kids! On a rainy day there’s nothing like playing a board game together for creating lasting family memories!
Do you have an elderly family member or someone with mobility challenges? You’ve found the perfect place! After 5 short steps up the porch, everything is on one level to make it easy to get around. We have a raised, portable toilet seat and a shower chair for them to use. The shaded deck is great for anyone who wants to relax and read a good book overlooking the water but out of the sun!
Back inside, as you head down the hall toward the bedrooms, on the right you’ll see the convenient laundry room, complete with washer and dryer! So leave those bulky extra suitcases at home – you can pack light and still start each day of your vacation with fresh, clean clothes! This room is also big enough for the pack-and-play if you don’t want to share your bedroom with the baby! Speaking of bedrooms, there are three in this house: The chic, luxurious master suite with a comfortable king-sized bed, a flat screen TV and its own full bathroom with vanity and tub with shower. Plus a new, private work space is now available in the master bedroom to do your virtual work or school away from the main living area! The second bedroom with a comfortable pillow-topped queen-size bed and the third bedroom with a twin-over-full bunk bed and a regular twin bunk bed, so it sleeps up to 5. It’s the perfect set up for families, couples, friends or business travelers. All mattresses and pillows have protective covers.
New vinyl plank floors were installed in 2020! The hall bathroom has a shower, tub and vanity. Please plan to bring your own linens, towels, soap, toiletries, and paper products. There’s parking space for two (2) cars on the parking pad. A large vehicle can park on the street in front of the house, but no parking is permitted in front of other homes.
It’s just a 7 minute walk to the famed, Ocean City Beach, and Northside Park, a 58-acre community park with playgrounds, baseball fields, soccer fields, walking paths and a fishing pier, is just a half mile away. The Montego Bay Community amenities include two swimming pools, two tennis courts, shuffleboard courts and even a miniature golf course. (NOTE: the pool is not open during the off-season.) Our community also offers its own bay-front boardwalk with three piers for fishing and crabbing.
If you’re looking for shopping and dining, there’s an abundance of great options nearby! We’ll tell you all about them in the host manual!
Our military family of four (Hoo-ah) instantly fell in love with this house and its location – so close to the beach yet also on the bay and all its treasures. We’re sure you’ll fall in love with it, too! Make your reservation today and take the whole family or a group of friends for a little fun by the sea at this bright, chic, fun, family and elderly-friendly, newly renovated, clean rental where everyone will have a great time!
