About Wendy Ney Manley
WE ARE SO EXCITED TO SHARE WITH YOU OUR OCEANFRONT RETREAT! THE KITCHEN IS GORGEOUS AND PERSONALLY CRAFTED WITH YOU, OUR GUEST IN MIND! AND DON'T OVERLOOK THE UPGRADES TO THE GREAT/LIVING ROOM! THIS IS WHAT WE LOVE TO DO - DESIGN AND FURNISH VACATION HOMES THAT ARE INVITING, UPDATED AND A PERFECT BACK DROP FOR YOUR TIME AWAY WHERE WE HOPE MANY FUN FILLED MEMORIES WILL BE CREATED AND YOU WILL RETURN FOR MANY YEARS TO COME! This is one of three vacation rentals we own. We try to make our homes more inviting and welcoming than your typical rental home with a personality that does not feel like a bland and faceless hotel room! We try to outfit them so when the weather does not cooperate or you want to plan a special meal, those items necessary to making the most of the experience are within reach. The guestbook is there for you to share your experiences with others and to let us know if we have overlooked a creature comfort or an element of the property is not functioning as it should. We always joke about wanting to vacation in our own homes, but with both of us being self employed and parents of kids with crazy schedules, we don't get the opportunity to...so please enjoy! We will live vicariously through you!
Wendy Ney Manley purchased this Condo in 2003
Why Wendy Ney Manley chose Ocean City
We bought the HOME because we thought it was a unique layout, in a great building with very nice amenities and UNMATCHED views of both the ocean and bay. Privacy, quiet and very bright with natural light even though there are only two sources of light on each floor. When we come and use the property we love the fact that we can park our car and never feel compelled to use it until we are getting ready to leave. Everything you could want is within walking distance, food, restaurants, shopping and entertainment. We love the balconies - one that overlooks the ocean where we spend most of our time whether rocking away with our morning coffee or capping off a perfect beach day with a glass of wine. We take many of our meals outside and there is ample seating in the great room where we are able to catch up on the newest cinematic releases. We knew when we saw this property we had to add it to our collection of unique vacation rentals!
What makes this Condo unique
After seeing units in many of the other neighboring properties, we chose this one because of the direct ocean AND bay views, the privacy of the unit and the unique floor plan. Both bedrooms have full walls of glass that have simply incredible views! We also like having the exercise facilities on site and the indoor pool, which is not available at all vacation rentals. Open floor plan with recent updates ensure a care free vacation! We hope you enjoy it too!
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
This unit is in great condition and in a great location. The owner was extremely responsive to all of our questions! Check-in and check-out procedures were easy as well.
We were very pleased with our stay. The condo was large and comfortable. We found it extremely clean and updated and the view from the balcony was incredible. It was quiet and ownership (Wendy) was very responsive and informative to questions we had while we enjoyed our vacation. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.
I am very glad you enjoyed your time in Ocean City and that the accomodations met with your approval! Hope to welcome you back before too long. Thanks again for vacationing with us!
We had an amazing vacation! Breath taking views of the ocean and were able to walk to local restaurants! Highly recommend staying here at Wendy’s family condo. Wendy was also available for any questions anytime! Thank you
This condo was great.well cared for.Thhe views are everything !!
Only negative is the many steps to get all our beach gear to the beach.
Glad you enjoyed your stay and our condo! We love the ocean and bay views as well, especially in the evening, ocean side, with a beverage in hand and relaxing on the balcony after a day of beach sun. I am sorry the steps were an issue; I guess that's the price you pay when the building is situated just behind the sand dunes slightly above sea level with direct access to the beach. Nonetheless, I hope you will consider returning!
Worst experience ever!
Never again. Place was FILTHY dirty. Trash, dirt, coffee grinds and sand everywhere. They did not clean anything. They left food in the fridge (pizza, milk, carton if eggs full of broken shells, butter and smashed banana). Oh. And I forgot to mention the hair ALL over the inside of the refrigerator. Dirty dishes in the dishwasher. Absolutely FILTHY. The shower door was broken and laying in the shower, the washer was broken and dryer was making a very loud squealing noise. The bedroom carpet was drenched all week (most likely from previous renters taking showers with the door off??). We made sure the door was fixed prior to showering because we have common sense.The closet door was broken and you could not shut the bedroom door. The hot and cold water were reversed, which the owners have known and have not bothered to fix. It took about an hour to fish quarters from the garbage disposal. The sink backed up every time you ran the dishwasher, even when you used the disposal. The hot water was turned off. Apparently to "save money" in the few hours of inoccupancy, according to the maintenance company. The beds (OMG!) were filthy and the futon covers were covered in stains. Fortunately we had our own linens, pillows, towels, etc. I have never stayed in such a disgusting rental. Many more issues with this place than I even care to elaborate. The maintenance company arrived after a few hours to "fix" things. Or maybe just enough to get us through the week. The cleaning company came back and still didn't clean properly. I had to ask for each specific area (clean the coffee table, clean the coffee grinds and spills off the kitchen floor). I spent 5 hours of my first day of vacation waiting for cleaning/maintenance companies to come and go and several hours of cleaning I had to do. I could not stand the thought of my family staying in such filth. It was ridiculous. So now maybe you can understand. Never again.
As popular as our home is, I would be mistaken to say that there are times when things don’t go quite as one would hope; try as we might to make sure every rental goes smoothly. Unfortunately this traveler did not have a positive experience, and for that I am sorry.
We engaged a new brokerage company this summer (our “eyes and ears” on the ground) and we are still working out the kinks. As soon as I received word that the unit was not properly cleaned and that there were issues, I arranged for the cleaners and maintenance to return. As the traveler states, they were there within hours of the call. I made a point of following up with the traveler the following day to ensure the items were addressed to her satisfaction and offered a concession. I do not believe I received a response. If I am not told of issues, I cannot address them. Not every traveler treats our rental homes in a respectful or responsible manner and when you have a “bad apple” not only is it disturbing to see the destruction as an owner, but the time between rentals isn’t always sufficient to put things back as they should be. This does not excuse the fact that the house was not properly prepared for this traveler’s arrival but based on their observations it may in part explain the poor condition of the unit upon check-in. I have been in the home a few times since this incident in an effort to thwart future problems and ensure that the traveler’s observations are addressed. They have. A more responsible and caring cleaner has been engaged, the closet bi-folds are back on the track, and the shower door now has new rollers. I am not sure what the issue was with the washing machine/dryer as a technician was called in and they are in working order. Will continue to monitor. In short, as soon as we receive a call, we do our best to address these issues in a timely and efficient manner. I have no explanation why the breaker for hot water was shut off, but based on reports from the brokerage company, the prior tenant was tinkering with the electrical panel. Unfortunately the hot/cold in the upstairs shower is a problem we inherited and based on the three plumbers who have inspected the issue, short of a total bath remodel, the problem cannot be fixed, which is why we provide the “heads up” to all tenants at the outset. I completely understand issues such as these do not make for a pleasant start to a vacation and we are always looking for ways to improve the experience.
Lovely Clean and Relaxing Space!
Absolutely loved our stay here. It was clean and spacious with a very cute little kitchen and living room! The balcony is a great little spot as it's oceanfront. Loved the location of the building, in a more quiet area-more families opposed to young rowdy college kids. Overall, our stay here was perfect and I can honestly say I have zero compl
Obviously the beach is right outside your unit so swimming in the ocean and walking along the beach is a given! Don't forget the on-site pools for those rainy days. A short ride to the convention center, restaurants, clubbing, shopping and the like.
Boardwalk is a short ride on the town shuttle. Many parks nearby and a great place to take long walks and see the area. Certainly a wonderful place to vacation and recharge your batteries.
And so much to do in the area! Check out the Convention Center schedule of Events - so many exciting shows that are open to the public! Restaurants galore, go-carting, water parks, amusement parks, miniature golfing......you name it, OC's got it! For young and old and everyone in between!
