Relax and enjoy your summer stay just a block off the beach and boardwalk in the quieter, North End of Ocean City, NJ. Recently remodeled, open and airy yet charming and cozy, your beach house condo flat is on the third floor of a large, traditional, early 1920s OC beach property. Two large, furnished decks in front and back provide views of the ocean and famous Ferris Wheel, beautiful views of sunrises over the ocean and sunsets over the bay, and provide a relaxing sense of being away from and above it all.
Your loft-like living area includes plenty of seating, large flatscreen tv, and internet-enabled stereo. A full, galley-style kitchen, large Weber gas grill on the back deck, and spacious pantry accommodate those who choose to cook at home, and the dining area seats 6.
Three bedrooms comfortably sleep 6 (one bedroom has a queen-sized platform bed and the other two each have a set of kids' twin bunk beds), and when combined with a trundled mattress and a pullout sofa, can accommodate up to 8. A large skylight in the full bath adds to the sense of open, airy space and includes a stall shower, while the property has an outdoor shower as well.
You are a short walk from great food and dining, and walking distance from boardwalk entertainment and downtown shopping, yet far enough away to enjoy the quiet of home.
Seasonal beach badges, menus and recommendations, the latest OC guidebook, and many other conveniences included.
There is no off street parking on property (& understandably is limited in the summer season - you may need to park a few blocks away), and there is no washer/dryer or dishwasher. Like most rentals in OC, we kindly ask guests to bring their own bedding (sheets & pillowcases) & towels (bath & beach).
Our beach house is on a rare one way street & the cross street to the beach is much less 'trafficky' on the north end. We have wonderful neighbors on the first and second floor and across the street. A very fun & friendly little neighborhood.
update to house rules:
For the 2014 season, check-in will be 4PM and check out is 11AM.
We have a strict "leave it as you found it" policy....we make sure our place is thoroughly clean (bathroom, kitchen, dusted & vacuumed) for your stay & expect our guests to take the time to do the same before they checkout.
We will have 5 seasonal beach badges for you to borrow during your stay. Please make sure all 5 badges are there when you check out & replace if needed (we had one guest overnight deliver the badge when she discovered it on her suit when she got home!). We also have beach chairs, boogie boards & beach toys you are welcome to borrow.
It truly is our home away from home, and we leave snacks/food/beverages/sunscreens for our next stay. Please replace anything you use.
Like most, if not all, ocean city beach rentals, please bring your own sheets, pillowcases, bath & beach towels.
thank you, & we hope you enjoy our beach house as much as we do:)
Everything was beyond perfect. The house is very cute and cozy. The outside area is the best part- you can see the ocean and it's very spacious. The house has everything you need, and the owners are always available and super responsive. Couldn't be happier with our stay.
Adorable, clean, and a great location. All the amenities we needed. We stayed four nights with our two kids and never got into our cars. Hope to return next year.
Thanks for sharing this very special place, Goodwins. I can't get the lovely views from the front and back decks out of my mind!
As Ocean City, NJ experts, my family knows good beaching. My mother and I went to stay at the Goodwin's 3rd Fl Beach Apartment looking forward to spending a few days at our favorite beach. Instead, what we got was a beautiful beach home that had every single thing we could ever need ready to make our stay enjoyable.
The apartment is not just beautiful, it's well-appointed, sun-filled, and clean. There is a roomy balcony, several bedrooms, a gorgeous bathroom, an actual living room, and I haven't even gotten to the kitchen yet. It has everything from Cheetos to 5 levels of sunscreen, beach tags to pots and pans, and room to seat your whole family.
The location is the best. Take it from an Ocean City aficionado, anything around 3rd street is the best beaching and boardwalk in OC. We were just about a block away from everything we wanted to do. It's just far enough away from Wonderland to enjoy the night stroll, and close enough to the beach so you can carry everything without feeling tired by the time you get there.
As for our hosts, they were accessible, prepared, and lovely. From a few moments after we walked in the door to the drive out of the city, my mother and talked about coming back to stay at the Goodwins'. What a treat. My only worry is that it'll be all booked up!
Even better in real life than in the pictures. The people I was staying with were happily surprised. Great location in Ocean City, close to the beach and boardwalk, and you can see the ocean from the porch. Bill and Shawne were very helpful. We loved it and would definitely rent again.
We were at Bill and Shawne's Ocean City NJ Beach House condo last week. The house is a block and a half from the beach. The house is well maintained. Bill and Shawne are good hosts and were very helpful from the time we made the booking to the time we left. Overall very satisfied and will definitely go back.
This is the perfect family shore home! Right near the beach, far enough away from the noise, but still walking distance to the Boardwalk. The apartment is cute, clean, and family friendly. We loved our time here and will definitely be back! Shawne & Bill were so helpful and made sure we were comfortable. The lack of sheets and towels may be a bit rough for those traveling from afar, but that is what you will get anywhere in Ocean City. We highly recommend it!
We LOVED Bill's house! It was exactly what we were looking for and we weren't disappointed! House was lovely, beach was a block away and we had a great time.
Bill and his wife were both extremely pleasant and gave us lots of great tips for things to do. They were super helpful in their emails.
I am absolutely hoping to go back and will definitely rent from them again.
It really was the perfect place for us. I couldn't have asked for anything more.
