About the Owner

I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia and have resided in Philadelphia since 2003. I am a cooking instructor and community chef. I love nothing more than to host meals and gatherings at our shore home. I hope you will enjoy sharing it with those close to you as well.

Beautiful house - perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week in this house so much! It's been recently redone and the decor is really peaceful and beautiful. There was plenty of sleeping space for 8 people, and that was with only one person in each double bed. We had everything we needed and all of the amenities (dishwasher, washer, dryer) worked great. There's a nice space under the house to keep bikes and, even though there's just one bathroom, we used the outdoor shower too to speed things up (it's very handy for coming back from the beach). The house is a comfortable walk to the beach and an even easier bike ride, and we also loved heading the other direction (only a couple of blocks) to the bay. It's beautiful and we enjoyed biking across the bridge and back to watch the birds and boaters. Also, we had a small snafu in the middle of our stay - misplaced our key - and Kristin was incredibly helpful, even though it was late at night - we really really appreciated her hospitality. We would definitely stay in this house again on a return trip!

Comfortable, amazing value

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at the bungalow! It was clean, comfortable, and well appointed. The furniture was totally loungeable. The (teenaged) kids had a few block bike or longboard ride to any place worth going to on the island, and just parked under the house when they came home. They showered outside, which kept all sand out, and made the one bathroom plenty for us.

The updated, 4 bedroom house is way more than you'd expect for the price and frankly, unbeatable. I would say, the only con for me was that it does not have a porch, but it was a concession I was willing to make for the price. Coffee in the sun room area was plenty lovely enough.

Thanks, Kristin!

Lovely house for a crowd

  • 5 of 5

Kristen's house offered the perfect accommodations for our mix of adults and kids arriving at different times from different places. It's easy to access by car and a straight walk down to the boardwalk, and had all the amenities we needed for our stay. The off-street parking was a bit too tight for three cars with our minivan, but we were pleased to discover ample free street parking right around the house. The outdoor shower was great for getting everyone cleaned up quickly after a day on the beach, and the nice large living room was a perfect space for everyone to gather or smaller groups to congregate. As in most beach houses, the shades on the windows let in a fair amount of morning/evening light, so we needed to use a blackout curtain in the room where our young kids were going to bed before dark, and anyone bothered by early morning light might want to do the same.

Kristen was wonderfully responsive to all of our questions, and the house was clean and everything in good condition. We would absolutely recommend this house to any group of travelers, and hope to visit again ourselves in the future.

This was such a clean and cute house! We appreciated that it was within easy walking distance to the boardwalk and beach. The owners were very easy to work with and responded promptly in our communication. I highly recommend staying in this house for your Ocean City vacation!

Sparkling home - very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We came for a family gathering and found the Bungalow by the bay to be just perfect. It had recently been renovated and felt brand new just as advertised. We found the house clean and comfortable. Four of us stayed in the unit. Kristin was warm and welcoming and all went smoothly from check in to check out. I would certainly stay here again. I loved the location only a few blocks from the main shopping district and the boardwalk. It had everything we needed for our stay and accommodated a large gathering for an extended family meal quite well because of the open common areas with lots of seating. (There were 20 of us for a catered meal on a Sunday afternoon.) Thanks for everything Kristin!

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

House is amazing. It feels like a new house. My family of four had more room than we needed. Ocean City is always my families favorite place to go to relax and have fun. Even though we stayed the first week of November, there were plenty of things to do. The new high quality washer and dryer was nice to use. Thanks.

From the Owner

Ever since I was a kid, I have enjoyed going down the shore to Ocean City. My parents never owned a house in OCNJ, but my godmother did. When I was younger, we would stay with her for one week each summer. When I became a teenager, my father purchased this house. Ever since, we have shared it with friends and family throughout the year. Sadly, my dad passed away in 2005 and left the house to me. Ever since, I have rented it during the season and shared it with friends and family during the off season. I have rented through Vacation Rentals since 2011. In 2012, the home was hit by Hurricane Sandy. I spent a year and a half elevating and renovating the home. After putting in much TLC and brand new EVERYTHING, I was once again able to rent the home starting in the summer of 2014. I am excited to share our sunny beach-themed home with you. I hope you will enjoy Ocean City as much as I always have.

From the Owner

I love our home's natural light and close proximity to sunsets over the bay (see the picture). In the morning, you can read the paper in the sunroom or watch people ride by on their bicycles. Our house is conveniently located far enough away from the boardwalk to be quiet and close enough to be able to enjoy it throughout the day.
