About Leslie and Kevin

My husband and I met in Hermosa Beach, California in the early 90's and lived there until 1998 before moving to Seattle, Washington. I'm from Reno, Nevada where we were married and I grew up on the north shore of Lake Tahoe in Tyrolean Village. My husband is from New Jersey and he grew up in Monmouth County. We have three children, our two older kids were born in California, one in Newport and one in Torrance and our youngest was born in Kirkland, Washington. We moved to northern New Jersey in 2001, we lived in Madison for a short period then moved to Chatham where we've lived since 2002.

Leslie and Kevin purchased this house in 2005

Why Leslie and Kevin chose Ocean City

We bought this house in 2005 after selling some investment property. We originally intended on buying the other house we own, listing 157515, but at the time this house was more attractive and we really loved the size of the house, the detached garage and the great neighborhood location. We've had a lot of great times in this house with family and friends over the years and love being there every summer.

What makes this house unique

This house is great, it's a nice size for two small families or one extended family. We've done many updates, but maintained a lot of the old charm of this house. It has a great layout and a very relaxing and comfortable environment, plus the large front porch provides a great meeting place for the family. During the days and nights we're down the shore, we spend a lot of time sitting on the porch, talking, reading and relaxing there The house has a nice driveway that can be used for parking up to 3 cars, a play area or staging area for your daily trips to the beach. It's in a great location, everything you need is a short walk or bike ride. If you want to leave the island for any reason for a day to play golf or go to dinner in AC, Cape May, Somers Point or Long Port, it's very easy from the Long Port Bridge at the north end or the 9th Street Causeway.

Great vacation in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family of 4. Having the bikes was an added bonus. The block was quiet but close enough to the boardwalk and rides. Also the trolley stopped very close to the house so after a long night on the boardwalk the ride back was a breeze. The kitchen was also well appointed and had everything we needed to cook meals when we wanted to stay in for dinner. The owners were great to work with as well and very accommodating. Highly recommended!

Great place to stay for a family!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here a couple weeks ago and it was phenomenal. The place was exceptionally clean, the porch was (as many other have stated) the perfect place to hang out, and the beach was really not that far of a walk! My husband and I stayed in the main floor master bedroom; when my brother and his infant daughter would get up in the morning, we never even heard them in the living room! The only thing that I would say worried me was that the bedroom door was lockable from the outside with a bolt, and I hope that is removed in the future (my two year old actually locked me in the room once, and I had to shout out to the rest of my family on the porch for help because he couldn't undo the lock). Other than that, the kitchen was amazing and well stocked for people cooking all their own food, the beds were comfortable, and all the amenities were great! There was a general store (fantastic hoagies there) AND a fish restaurant/ store within a block of walking. The beach was a bit further down, but such a nice walk.

Also, the neighbourhood was nice and quiet!

Super Summer!

  • 4 of 5

We kicked off our summer in a great way! This house was everything stated & more! Rooms were spacious & clean. It was a short stroll to the boardwalk and the area restaurants were a nice treat. Leslie & Kevin made renting a breeze. We hope to return next season!

We had a fantastic visit to OC for our son's third birthday and this beach house made it so much more enjoyable. As newbies to renting a house we weren't sure what to expect. Leslie was very helpful with answering any questions and it was a completely smooth rental process. The house was extremely clean and the perfect respite after a day of fun. The porch was so cute and a relaxing setting for morning coffee or afternoon snacks. We are looking forward to hopefully being back soon!

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in this charming home. It’s on a quiet street, yet close to everything. We parked our cars in the driveway when we arrived and didn’t need them until the day we left. It was a short walk or bike ride to everything we needed. The home is well appointed with everything we could possibly want and the beach tags, bikes, wagon, beach cart and many other extras were very welcome. Beds were comfortable and even with 4 adults and 4 children we never ran out of hot water. The kitchen is spacious with modern appliances and a joy to cook in. The front porch was a comfortable place to sit day or night. Leslie was wonderful to deal with. She was quick to answer the few questions we had. We all agreed that we were glad to have found this wonderful home and would be happy to stay here again.

Car: not necessary

This house is located in a great neighborhood at the northern end of Ocean City two blocks from the beach. This area is known as 'North End' just south of 'Garden Section' of Ocean City and is nice because everything is close. You can walk or bike to most destinations including the Wonderland rides on the boardwalk at 5th Street. At the same time, you are far enough away from the main activity that it's quiet at night.

The boardwalk runs from 1st Street south for approximately 24 blocks or 2.5 miles. The main boardwalk runs from 5th street south to 14th Street. Ocean City is rated the number one family resort city in the United States by Travel Channel. Please check out our other Cozy Beach Digs listing 157515 about 2 blocks north of 1st street and approximately 1 block east from this house on Stenton Place.

Other Activities: Basketball Hoop
