Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Maryland - The Beach Retreat

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

Relax in the gazebo on the rear private deck with your friends and family after a day at the beach and pool in the Ocean Pines Beach Club. (Three night minimum stay) Play golf on the Robert Trent Jones designed golf course in Ocean Pines. The Yacht Club and Marina has an outside bar and pool plus a full service restaurant overlooking the bay and Ocean City. If tennis is your game then the Ocean Pines Tennis Club might be your destination for some fun and exercise. You might go to one of the four pools inside the Ocean Pines community for variety. There are parks with playground equipment throughout the Pines community. Pick up a map to explore the large development.

There is plenty of room is this 2700 square foot home. There is a master bedroom on each level in this warmly decorated beach house. One master has a queen size bed and private bath while the other has a king size bed. A trundle set of twin beds is located in the other first floor bedroom and there is a sleeper sofa in the very large family room. There is another full bath in the hallway on the first floor.

The upstairs has a cute loft with a flip flop theme and another sleeper sofa. It also has a TV and DVD player for the kids or adults to watch at night. Both large master bedrooms have a TV and VCR or DVD and a fourth big screen HD TV, VCR and DVD player is in the family room. The second upstairs bedroom has twin beds and the master bath is located between the loft and the bedroom. There is a whirlpool tub and separate shower in the master bath upstairs.

There is a two car garage available with this house. Everything you need for the patio is stored there. There are many extra chairs for a party on the rear deck or right in the driveway next to the front porch. The gas grill will be stored in the garage.

If you must work while you are down at the beach there is a nice office directly behind the kitchen leading into the family room. Hopefully, you won't need to do that but if you do there is wireless internet access.

The cathedral ceiling is over the living room and dining room area and there are four bar stools to sit and chat on looking into the kitchen.

WE PROVIDE A BEACH CLUB PARKING PERMIT AND FOUR POOL PASSES TO OUR PRIVATE BEACH CLUB IN OCEAN CITY.

Ocean Pines truly has everything you would ever want in a beach vacation. The variety will promise to keep the kids excited and involved. The choices will make it tough to decide what you want to do. Lastly, the island of Assatique is located near by and it is home to a herd of wild ponies. There is a nature center on the island and you can use the beach there for a fee.

About Bruce MacGregor

We are a family of four. We would love to retire in Ocean Pines at 6 Salty Way. We love the beach, the pools, golf and tennis in Ocean Pines.

We take excellent care of our home. Neatness and cleanliness are important to us. We value family time and we think families will really enjoy our home and the community of Ocean Pines. We have been coming to Ocean Pines since 1994 and we continue to find new things to do and new towns to explore. Berlin is where they filmed Runaway Bride with Julia Roberts. It is a quaint town no more than ten minutes from our house. The island of Assatique is also close by. It has wild ponies living on it and it has great beaches. It is about 15 minutes from our home. I play golf and the course at Ocean Pines presents a good challenge. If you want more golf there are over 30 courses in the area.

Bruce MacGregor purchased this house in 2005

Why Bruce MacGregor chose Maryland

This community has it all. It now has over 8000 homes, two fire companies, a police force, the county library and every possible amenity you could ask for. The ocean, swimming pools, golf club, tennis and two marinas. I looked as far south as Hilton Head and could not find a community that has what Ocean Pines offers.

What makes this house unique

The private pools and sports amenities appeal to everyone in our family. We can do something different every day for a month within Ocean City and Ocean Pines. The neighbors are very nice and we can keep it quiet at home at night or drive ten minutes to the Ocean City Boardwalk for all the action the family would want. There is an amusement park and lots of shopping.

Lovely, well-kept vacation home for families

  • 5 of 5

This attractive and very clean rental in a beautiful neighborhood provided the ideal location for our family reunion. The number of guests varied from day to day but we always had plenty of room, with a couple of indoor dining areas and outdoor covered patio, plus several viewing areas for TV or movies. We had easy access to unspoiled beaches with ponies in their natural habitat at Assateague Island, where the kids loved the big waves and learned to go crabbing. We were also only a short drive from Ocean Pines Beach Club, with restaurants, showers, and all amenities just steps away from the the beach and the ocean. We visited the Ocean Pines neighborhood pools several times, with kiddie pools great for little ones as well as large pools for older swimmers. Local parks and playgrounds with free concerts in the evening were fun for kids and adults. Our kids made use of the bikes provided, riding them on the quiet cul-de-sac almost every day. The owner was responsive and considerate in all our dealings. I would heartily recommend this vacation rental.

Spacious, Clean and Relaxing Home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Ocean Pines. The house is well furnished and decorated tastefully. Everything was very clean and in good condition. The cleaning service even checked in with us to make sure the house was ok. The owner was easy to contact and deal with. The house is spacious and very comfortable. We enjoyed being in a quiet neighborhood. Just a short drive to the hustle and bustle of the busy beach and boardwalk. We hope to stay again in the future.

Nice Beach House

  • 4 of 5

The house is at the end of a small cult sac. if you have small kids that's a plus no traffic up and down the street. We were there for a weekend , cruisers car show.

It's says two master bedrooms however the upper stairs master does not have a bathroom it is in the other bedroom upstairs.

Typical VRBO has all the amenities everything worked as advertised. Bring your own sheets and towels.

Wonderful Cozy and Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy to have Salty Pines as our Christmas holiday home. The home is large and has a wonderful family room and a separate living room to provide two separate areas for entertaining. Salty Way is on a cul de sac so the area is quiet with no thru traffic.The first floor bedroom with en suite was convenient for our family who preferred no steps. And our son's family felt very special in the master suite. Our grandson age 4 thought the bath tub was just like a pool and had lot's of fun.

The kitchen although small is open to the dining room and the appliances fairly new. Salty Way feels more like a family home than a rental home just what we were hoping to find.
