Newly Renovated! This 3 bedroom 1 ½ bathroom first floor apartment has been fully restored to maintain its original charm and yet modernized with all the conveniences of new construction such as CENTRAL HEATING AND AIR CONDITIONING and FREE WIRELESS INTERNET. With a new fully equipped kitchen and a stack washer and dryer, microwave oven and new cabinetry, our apartment is very comfortable as well as functional. An additional 1/2 bathroom, located just off the kitchen was also added during the renovation and has proven to be a much appreciated convenience.

This home was originally built in 1929. All of the floors have been refinished and restored. They are all the original heart pine and are exposed throughout the entire house. The beautiful solid wood doors have been sanded and refinished and add charm and character as well as warmth to the original floor plan.

Outside, the porch has been designed to act as a second living space. You can enjoy Ocean City’s cool breezes and listen to the sound of the ocean from the large, fully furnished and decorated front porch that runs the full width of the home. The new awnings have been installed for added privacy and protection from the sun and rain, so no matter what the weather, your family can enjoy the afternoons and evenings, playing cards, talking or just breathing in the fresh ocean air.

When entering the home you are greeted by a colorful and light décor with peaceful blue walls. From the family room which is furnished with a sofa, two chairs and lamps and a TV, you can see straight through to the dining room furnished with a maple dining table and sideboard, and to the new kitchen and hall, with light from the back door illuminating the hallway.

The first bedroom is located off the family room and has a TV, a closet and full sized bed, along with two dressers and lamps. The other two rooms are accessed off the dining room through a hallway on the right. The first room has two twin beds with matching bedspreads, two dressers and lamps and a closet. A very nice room for children or teens! The back bedroom is next and has a full-sized bed similar to the front room. It has a closet and dresser along with a bedside table with a lamp. A window seat is located in front of the window. Finally, there is a full bath at the end of the hall. It has most of the original tile, a shower/tub combo and a toilet and sink.

All of the bedding in our house is very comfortable with tempra-pedic mattress toppers covered by new clean mattress covers. There are also plenty of quilts and blankets throughout the rooms.

We do not supply linens or towels. I do supple 3 free beach tags for your use during your stay. There is also a designated ENCLOSED OUTSIDE SHOWER with hot and cold running water.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!!! While every attention to detail has been attended, you cannot change location. This house is in a PRIME LOCATION, less than 1 block from the First Street Beach and Boardwalk, which is the location of the main Lifeguard Station and Public Restroom Facilities. ½ block west you can walk to the corner grocery store or one of Ocean City’s finest restaurants, “The Island Grill”. You can hear the ocean from the porch. We are in the “Northend”, just a couple of blocks to the shuffleboard courts, Beach Volleyball, skating park, and “Wonderland” amusement park.

We rent from Saturday to Saturday. Check in at 2:00 pm. Check out is 10:00 am. We live here in Ocean City during the season and rent to families and extended families. This is a NO Smoking home. NO pets permitted.

We accept Mastercard, Visa, and Discover cards as well as bank checks or personal checks. A $250.00 deposit is required at the time of booking.

About Dale Halligan

Growing up in Atlanta, most people ask "why do you go to Ocean City, New Jersey?'. Well that's an easy one for me. It's in my blood. My grandparents retired there, my mom spent summers there, I spent summers there and it's just the greatest place to be. The people, the breezes, the food, the sounds, the activity, the boardwalk and the memories only begin my list.

When I first married a very Southern man years ago after graduating from The University of Georgia, I didn't know what he would think about my beloved Ocean City and all its uniqueness. After all, it was so "un-southern" in every way. It took only one week and he understood. That was a long time ago and since then we have raised 3 children on the summer beaches, and found a property that we want to keep in the family. It took us almost 3 years to totally update our home, adding the much needed extra bathrooms, central heating and air, washers and dryers, master bedroom and bath. It was quite the endeavor and challenge to renovate a home built in 1899, and yet maintain the original integrity and charm of the house. Removing old carpet and flooring only to discover the beautiful heart pine underneath. Stripping the old paint from the doors and restoring them to their original luster. I am proud that we didn't tear an old house down, but instead, transformed it with modern amenities and restored its original charm. The end result is a very comfortable home that is not huge but cozy, not new but restored.

All of this with an incredible location, so close to the beach and boardwalk, so close to the grocery/deli (on the corner), I plan to keep this house for along time, but for this time in my life, I am leasing it to families who I entrust to treat it as their own.

Why Dale Halligan chose South NJ Shore

Comfortable.....well maintained.......... location........... clean!!!!!

Good time had by all!

  • 5 of 5

This charming home is not a stereotypical, generic Ocean City rental. It feels more like a home and it is tastefully decorated. The location is ideal and convenient and It is a short walk to the beach. The owner was pleasant and communicative throughout the entire process. Cheers!
