traveler reviews for this ocean city house rental

Inviting home for family reunion

Review submitted: April 7, 2009   Date of arrival: March 20, 2009

This spacious old home is a short walk from the beautiful beach and boardwalk. Our family reunion consisted of three generations, and all had a wonderful weekend. The kitchen was just large enough for our group of 13 adults to sit down together for meals. It is well-equipped with appliances, dishes, and cookware. Since we were there in March, there was not much happening in terms of amusements, but there certainly would be for visitors later in the season.
I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing

Owners response: Our home is ideal for family reunions, and has hosted dozens over the past five seasons! Built circa 1915, many generations have made memories to last a lifetime in our beautifully restored Victorian. Perfect for holidays, special events and summer vacations - come see us and make your own wonderful memories!

Helpful votes: 8 / 8


Mc Beach Bash

Review submitted: August 9, 2014   Date of arrival: August 2, 2014

We had a wonderful 3 generation family vacation here at the Victoria Inn!! The Inn is in a great location for little legs and older legs too! It is very spacious, clean and comfortable. A home away from home. The Inn has an awesome front porch and room for many. We enjoyed making marvelous family memories here at our most favorite beach town. Polly, Sue and Bob were very friendly, kind and accommodating!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers

Owners response: Thanks, Dixie! Bobby was thrilled to see his name mentioned in the review - he's an innkeeper in the making. We are happy you and your wonderful family enjoyed our home. We hope to see you again!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thanks, Penne. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. The house is ideally located within walking distance to the 100+ shops on Asbury Avenue, many restaurants and the 2.5 mile boardwalk. It makes an ideal getaway for a girls' weekend like you enjoyed when you were here!
