About Susan Bacastow

Polly and Sue are both adjunct professors in the College of Professional Studies at Villanova University in Villanova, PA. Sue teaches Real Estate, Contracts and Torts on campus, and Leadership courses online. Polly teaches Information Systems at Villanova and Intro to Tchnology at Drexel University. Polly is an analyst at ADT and Sue is an attorney. Polly is currently pursuing her doctorate in Information Studies at Drexel.

In addition to the Victoria Inn, we own and operate our Wellington Oasis (VRBO Listing #995401), a spectacular home in the heart of Wellington (Palm Beach County, Florida) - the Winter Equestrian Capital of the World.

Fortunately, Polly is quite handy and enjoys making improvements to the Inn. Sue is constantly redecorating, so returning guests always find something new! We are both avid antique collectors. Most weekends, time permitting, we are at estate sales, garage sales, or antique stores. It’s one of our favorite ways to spend an afternoon. We’ve had so much fun renovating, furnishing and decorating our house. A recent guest told us she could “feel the love in every room”. If you are looking for a true home away from home, this is your vacation home!

Susan Bacastow purchased this condo in 2004

Why Susan Bacastow chose Ocean City

WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! We love the history, architecture and charm of old homes. Our house was built in 1915 and we have spent the last 13 years renovating the Victoria Inn, making it an absolutely idyllic vacation retreat. We love old homes and the family-friendly atmosphere of Ocean City - a fun, safe place to vacation. OC has won many awards and was recently named the greatest family vacation resort by Travel magazine. It's comforting to allow the children to explore the town without worrying about bars on every corner as found in many other south jersey beach towns. We are located 1 block to the beach and 2.5 mile boardwalk. Every block of our fabulous beach is guarded, & the 7th Street beach is a guarded beach only for surfing. With so much to do, you can walk anywhere and avoid paying for parking! The boardwalk has 2 great amusement piers, a water park, several mini-golf courses, music pier, arcades, surf shops, a movie theater, dozens of stores, and every kind of 'fun food' imaginable: ice cream, pizza, salt water taffy, caramel corn, water ice, candy, fudge, French fries, seafood, smoothies, cotton candy, and more. We are just a couple of blocks to the 100+ shops and many restaurants on Asbury Avenue, a great shopping venue for a girls' weekend or a break from the hot sun! Less than a block from our home you will find 12 tennis courts, a track, football field, shuffleboard courts, basketball court, & beach volleyball. You can rent bicycles for a morning ride on the boardwalk. Just a few blocks away is the bay where you can rent jet skis, go deep sea fishing, crabbing, enjoy a whale & dolphin watching cruise, go parasailing, or enjoy a delicious meal. If you just want to relax, our wrap-around deck is a terrific spot to savor your morning coffee, read a book, play a game, people watch, or enjoy cocktails. The courtyard is perfect for celebrations with seating for 40!

What makes this condo unique

The Victoria Inn is a truly unique setting for fantastic summer vacations, intimate weddings, fabulous birthday parties, memorable anniversaries, festive holiday celebrations, & fun-filled family reunions. Newly married, Polly and I especially enjoy hosting weddings, & we will gladly assist you in planning the perfect event! Our lovely, partially enclosed courtyard, reminiscent of a French Cafe, has seating for 40 at fabulous wrought iron tables & chairs with many potted, hanging & climbing flowers, & hundreds of tiny white lights. Expanded in 2016, the courtyard now features stunning pavers and a raised garden, making it a spectacular setting for celebrations!

With accommodations for up to 40, the Victoria Inn provides a reasonably priced retreat venue. Meeting space for large groups is available just a few blocks away. We will gladly assist with reservations.

From mid-June to the Saturday of Labor Day Weekend, we have weekly rentals only. However, we rent year-round. From September to mid-June, a 2 night minimum stay is required, except for holidays with a 3 night minimum.

In addition to celebrations, guests have gathered for Creative Memories Scrap-booking, Mah-Jong weekends, yoga, spiritual, & youth retreats. Ocean City also hosts many special events including the M.S. Bike-a-thon, ALS walk, antique car show, Spring & Fall Block Parties, craft shows, art shows, Easter Egg Hunt with 100,000 eggs, Decorated Hat Parade, Halloween Festivities, Trick-or-Treating, Hayrides on the boardwalk, Music Festivals, Breakfast with Santa & Free Horse & Carriage Rides! Just steps from our house are all of the fabulous First Night (New Year's) Activities with fireworks, rides, musicians, shows & magicians.

Conveniently located, 20 minutes to Atlantic City’s casinos & terrific shopping outlets; 30 minutes to historic Cape May with its famous zoo, many antique stores, dozens of shops, Victorian homes & fantastic restaurants, 1 hour to Philadelphia, & 2.5 hours to NY City.

Lovely condo, warm, friendly, helpful landladies

  • 5 of 5

Having rented a number of Vacation Rentals through the HomeAway family of sites, I know whereof I speak...my wife and I could not have been more pleased by our stay in Ocean CIty. Our condo was much more than we'd expected or needed - fully furnished with all the usual furniture, plus amenities, cable, wi-fi, VERY well equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, everything one could want for a calm, quiet, beach vacation. Only blocks from the Boardwalk and beach, the landladies could not have helped us more. Their ever present warmth, friendliness, and willingness to assist were wonderful; their interaction with our many grandchildren (who stayed in the adjacent Main House and Condo A facilities) was priceless. Sweet caring, loving women, they were extremely gracious in facilitating our enjoyment of our stay. Kudos to our new friends. We WILL be back!!

Owner's Response: Thank you, George, for the wonderful review. We are glad the condo exceeded your expectations. We enjoyed meeting your beautiful family and look forward to getting to know you a bit more next year. We so enjoy meeting our guests and love when they become friends, as we know you will be for years to come. We look forward to seeing you next year! P.S., although there is a one way side street about 2/3 of the way down our block, we are technically "beach block" - exactly 1/5 mile to the beach : )

Amazing trip to OCNJ!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Victorian Inn condo. It was exactly as described, with more than enough space for the four of us. The hosts were friendly and accommodating, and you couldn't ask for a better location! A (very) quick walk to the boardwalk, beach, and all the action, but still quiet at night! Loved the gorgeous shared courtyard and grill, and having a washer and dryer on the property was very convenient! Already considering coming back again next summer!

Beautiful Property - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

From the very first interaction with the owners Polly and Susan, we knew this was the place fore us! The location is perfect! A short walk to boardwalk, beach, rides, movies and plenty of places to eat. The property is very well maintained and was perfect for our group (5 adults and 3 kids). There is access to 3 grilles and grilling utensils, shared washer and dryer, two outdoor showers and the most beautiful patio. We ate most of our meals on the patio. It was so relaxing with beautiful flowers, lattice and pleanty of tables and chairs. Susan and Polly were so welcoming and helping is recommending restaurants for the nights we went out to eat and even leant us a couple things we forgot to bring. My nephew, who is 6, says he wishes he could go back in time to the best beach vacation ever! We would definately recommend this property and hope to stay again.

Beyond Fabulous !!! A must visit !

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the Easter weekend at this great condo. So charming and spotless. It felt like home. Such comfortable beds and beautiful linens and quilts to snuggle into. Great to have 2 baths also. The owners, Sue and Polly, treated us like special house guests.

Loved having my coffee in the lovely courtyard. just a half block walk to the beach and boardwalk was super convenient for all the shops and rides.

There are several units and a large Victorian house, so it is a must visit for anyone from a couple to a large family reunion or wedding.

Can't wait to go back.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Sandy. We're glad you enjoyed the condo and the comfy new mattresses! The courtyard is more beautiful a bit later in the spring with the many flowers including the gorgeous climbing Mandevillas. We hope to see you again soon! The Easter Season is when Ocean City springs into full bloom! With the Easter Egg Hunt on Palm Sunday Weekend and the various Breakfasts with the Easter Bunny, half price ride tickets, and many other events, it is a great time of year to visit! The many churches throughout the city have wonderful events planned as well including the Living Last Supper and Stations of the Cross.

Wonderful Cozy Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was such a great place for our much needed getaway! It comfortably housed our group in a cozy, intimate home-away-from-home experience that fully met our expectations of rentals. High quality furnishings and functional kitchen, and close walk to the boardwalk and beach. Most of all, the owners, Sue and Polly, were so accommodating and hospitable - we could not have had a warmer welcome and arrangement of our stay. After touring the other condo unit and main house, we could Highly recommend any of the Victorian property for your vacation - off season or summer!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Emily! We are very happy you enjoyed your stay. The new electric fireplace really does make the condo extra warm and cozy in the winter. Ocean City has much to offer in the winter - over 100 shops and restaurants along Asbury Avenue, great shows, fabulous restaurants and wonderful outlets in Atlantic City, and of course, our favorite --- antique shopping in Seaville and Cape May!

Friends weekend in Ocean City

  • 5 of 5

We came for a weekend to see friends and tickets to Fleetwood Mac at Ceasers in AC. Staying at Victoria Inn, has it all. Location at the beach, close to AC, without having all the noise and traffic. The rooms are clean, beautiful and it feels like you're at your home away from home. And our gracious hosts, Sue and Polly top it off. All this makes for a great get away package. We will be back.
