The house is amazing. We had a wonderful time and great Thanksgiving week.

  • 5 of 5

We came to Ocean Pines to visit my mom for Thanksgiving, & are so happy we found this amazing, pet friendly, home away from home. Our adult children also travel to be with us & their grandmother. The layout of the house is great. The master suite & living area is separate from the rest of the house, has it's own deck & overlooks the beautiful, peaceful canal. The other bedrooms are very spacious & comfortable. There are plenty of TVs & other areas, inside & out, to keep everyone happy. We cooked a complete Thanksgiving meal with all the sides, etc, with no problem. I was able to get the turkey ready & watch parts of the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, at the same time, which made me very happy. The neighborhood is wonderful to walk in, right on the St Martin's River, & we met some great neighbors. The owner, Rich, was very accommodating & quick getting back to me to answer any questions. We would definitely recommend this beautiful home to anyone. I think the summer months would be great with the canal right there for fishing & crabbing, Ocean City close by with the beautiful beach house availability, & all the amenities of Ocean Pines. Everything is close, yet far enough away, to have a very relaxing vacation. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home. We enjoyed every minute.

Al, Diana, Emily, Matt & Dakota, (woof, woof) Blanchard

Great place and location!

  • 5 of 5

Great location! View at night was awesome and my 12 year old son caught lots of crabs!! Keepers!..We have been coming to Delaware for the past 7 years..Mostly staying in Fenwick Island.This location in Ocean Pines MD was our favorite spot!..One small recommendation would be to put a TV in the dining area! Can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Thanks Michelle, its great to know another Guests truly enjoyed their summer vacation at our beach house. We've really tried to set it up so the kids can have plenty of things to do, from fishing and crabbing, to video games, plus the foosball and air hockey games, as well as biking on the nature trails. We will definitely look into getting another TV for the dining area. Rich

Great accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation in OC Pines. My family rented two other houses and ours was the best. The lay out was perfect for our little grandkids to sleep while we visited in the upper part of the house. The dock was perfect and we were able to use the crab pot, boogie boards, and beach stuff.

I would definitely rent the house again.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Just spent one of the best weeks at the Eastern Shore. You have an awesome home. My kids had there own bedroom and we had our own separate bedroom, bath and living area. Came in handy along with the game room with the day of rain we had. Kids loved crabbing and fishing off the dock with the provided rods and traps. Just wish I had a boat or jet ski. The home is better then described. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Tom, thank you for your kind words we really have tried to offer a vacation experience for the entire family to enjoy. We have the fishing and crabbing equipment for our guests to maximize the benefit of being right on the water, which is a very beautiful bucolic spot. We also have 2 bicycles, the Xbox and the foosball game for the kids and teenagers to enjoy. Please stay with us again next year. Rich MacDowell

Awesome beach week!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome beach week in a lovely home. Three bathrooms and a comfortable room for every family member. It was great to have the ability to park in the Ocean Pines parking lot and have the use of the bath house at the beach! The boat launch was close and we were able to keep our boat at the dock behind the house. Crabbing was also fun. Our family had a great time.
