The home, 1,400 square feet in area and newly remodeled in 2016, features an eat-in kitchen, spacious screened-in porch, living room, three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Views from the kitchen, living room and porch open up to the water. Included in the rental package are a private dock, two kayaks, two paddle boards, six beach chairs, three bicycles, a grill, a smoker, and plenty of off-street parking. And for those unable or unwilling to fully disconnect, there’s always WiFi and several TVs. The home’s cooling and heating are central.
The eat-in kitchen, complete with farm house sink, rustic table and gather-around island, comes with everything you’ll need, including range, microwave, super-quiet dishwasher, main fridge with icemaker, separate beverage fridge, pots and pans, dishes and utensils, coffee maker, toaster, slow cooker, griddle and blender.
A stand-out feature of the house is its spacious (24x10) three-season screened-in porch with its breathtaking water views. It’s perfect for sipping morning coffee or evening drinks, all while taking in sunrise or sunset, or just enjoying the fauna with its dozens of bird species that can include egrets, herons and the occasional eagle.
Equipped with wrap-around window panels that can be lowered or raised as desired, the porch features two seating areas – one for relaxing, the other for meals or games. And if the sun’s too bright, just push the button to roll out the electric awning.
For a change of scenery or a connection to the outside world, you can turn to a large flat screen TV in the home’s living room where you can spread out over two couches or claim for yourself a comfy reclining chair with ottoman. For tunes, you can choose music channels on the cable TV or travel back in time and fire up our turn-table with its eclectic selection of LPs. Board games and some books are also provided.
The three bedrooms, each with ample closet space and its own TV, come with one king size, one queen size and one full size beds. Linens, comforters, pillows, pillow cases and towels are provided. The main bathroom comes equipped with washer and dryer.
For outdoor cooking enthusiasts, the home includes a gas-started Weber charcoal grill and a separate smoker (the “Egg” type). Propane and charcoal for the grill as well fire-starters for the smoker are provided.
For your water, beach and other activity/relaxation needs, the two kayaks are suitable for adults or teens, the stand-up paddle boards are full-size. The bikes are one adult male mountain/road bike, one adult female leisure bike and one early teen girl bike. Some life vests and helmets are provided but you are encouraged to bring your own since we might not have all needed sizes.
The kayaks and paddle boards can be launched straight from the home’s private dock. A detachable dock ladder is provided.
The rental comes with a complimentary pass to the Ocean City Beach Club (at 49th Street in Ocean City) that includes parking privileges on a private lot as well as access to a beachfront restaurant, bar, members-only pool and beach volleyball court.
If you are bringing a boat (please nothing larger than a standard pontoon) or jet skis to the house, you will be able to store those in the off-street parking area immediately adjacent to the home. The area will easily accommodate one pontoon boat and two cars.
The property is available year-round as activities are not limited to warm weather.
Aside from being just a few minutes away from Ocean City and all of its attractions, the Ocean Pines community offers a long list of amenities, including but not limited to golf, pools (five to choose from), racquet sports, recreation and parks, restaurants, marinas, a yacht club, a community center and farmers’ market. Golfers can also enjoy several award-winning golf courses in the area, including a Robert Trent Jones-designed 18-hole golf course just a few minutes away. For rainy days (and off-season), there is an indoor swimming pool.

We were in need of a relaxing getaway over Thanksgiving weekend. This stay did not disappoint!
Nestled in a quiet bayside neighborhood with the water in its backyard, this 3 bedroom house provided all the comforts of home. Its fresh, updated décor, cleanliness, and gorgeous water views are all attributes that will keep us coming back for more! With quaint Berlin, Maryland, just a few miles away, we enjoyed a lovely holiday meal in town. Mother Nature provided warm weather late into November, and we were able to kayak right off the back dock, enjoying the autumn foliage and wildlife surrounding us.
We can only imagine the fun we will have, returning in the summer.

Where do we start! We LOVE this home! Beautifully situated on a peaceful part of Manklin Creek, off of the Isle of Wight Bay. Beautifully renovated home with a screened-in porch/all-weather room looking out on the water. Great waterfront room to read a book, enjoy coffee in the AM and cocktails in the afternoon. Paddle boards and kayaks dropped in from the back dock give hours of fun, relaxation and wildlife photography opportunities! Crabbing and fishing are fun activities to be enjoyed off of the dock also!
Not only do you have easy beach access to Ocean City, Assateague Island is a short drive away as well as the Delaware beaches and surf fishing at the Delaware state parks/beaches. So many fun restaurants and bars to check out. Some of our favorites, Crabs to Go... less than 10 minute drive to pick up a great meal to bring back to the house and enjoy on the back porch. Barn 34 offers exceptional breakfasts as well as other meals. Longboard - great place to grab lunch as you shop at Ron Jons and the sweet gift shop. Fish Tales, grab a cocktail and lunch right on the bay. Belly Busters, amazing fish tacos... and they DELIVER TO THE BEACH!! Assateague Island Surf Shop has yummy coffees, muffins, acai bowls, sandwiches.
Convenient provisioning nearby - grocery store, liquor store, drug store as well as a number of restaurants in Ocean Pines. Overall, a great place to go less than 3 hours from Alexandria, VA, depending on traffic of course!! Just perfect!Cindy and Peter S.
