About Anna Placek, Jane, Cindy or Kitty

Family owned 4 unit apartment building. We have owned this property for over 35 years and take great pride in making improvements to keep Darby Manor up to date. Before becoming owners, we had rented this property for years, enjoying family reunions each summer. When it went up for sale 35 years ago, we jumped at the chance to purchase it!

Anna Placek, Jane, Cindy or Kitty purchased this apartment in 1983

Why Anna Placek, Jane, Cindy or Kitty chose Ocean City

We loved the convenience of being downtown, and having the space for all of our family to go on vaction together. Literally, once you park your car, you won't have to move it the rest of the week.

What makes this apartment unique

Just a few steps away is the bay and mini-boardwalk fishing pier. Frequently, the family walks over together to watch some beautiful sunsets.

Awesome Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week with the family. Darby Manor was the perfect fit for my family and in- laws. Walking distance to great restaurants/ playground and of course the BEST part, THE BEACH/boardwalk. If you are looking for a quiet calm and clean place, this is the place! The owners were very accommodating and provided excellent hospitality.The sunsets and warm weather will keep you coming back. We will sure to come back sooner than later!!

Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here with our extended family for over 15 years. It is great. They are always updating the place. It is very clean and close to the boardwalk and bay. You can fish just one block away off a small fishing boardwalk on the bay. There is also a playground and park just one block away. The kitchen is well equipped so you do not have to eat out every night. There is a small back yard with a picnic table you can use. The owners are on premise so if you every need anything they are right there to assist you. You won't find a nicer place for the price.

Perfect place for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Darby Manor for a week in July.

It is located really close to the bayside (if you like fishing I guess you might spend your evenings or mornings there :) ) and 4 blocks from the boardwalk (5 min walk).

Walking distance from the amusements park.

Small grocery store is 1 block away which is very convenient if you have kids who suddenly decide they want chocolate milk or cereal.

Place is very clean and spacious. Big living room with a lot of windows.

There are playground, skateboard park, baseball field and basketball court just across the street, which is very convenient if you want to get kids off the playstation :)

Owners are staying in the same building , they are very nice people, very friendly.

We enjoyed our stay there and will try to come back next summer.
