Overview

About the property

Spacious 2 bedroom Apartment 6 houses from Beach

Light and spacious ground-level 2 bedroom apartment sleeps 4 comfortably. Complete kitchen, dining room, and living room with washer and dryer. Central air conditioning and heat. Covered porch with table and chairs offering views of both Boardwalk and Bay. Onsite parking and hot water outside shower. Bus stop located across street allows for car-free travel from Inlet to Fenwick 24 hours/day. We're located on the corner 6 houses to the Boardwalk. If you are looking to pack a house and party this is not the place for you. If, however, you want to be close the action yet want a quiet, clean (we clean it ourselves), and roomy apartment with off street parking, then this is the place! Ideal for family of four,one or two couples, or Girls Getaway. No matter where people stay in OC, the Boardwalk is where they all end up! And remember, Ocean City's beaches are free! No need for badges to walk onto our 10 miles of beach.

Park here for free and walk or bike to OC's many restaurants and local pubs. On the Boardwalk at the end of the street you'll discover Thrashers Fries, an Ocean City Landmark. 5 streets to the South is the oldest Municipal Skateboard Park in the country. The Ocean City Lifesaving Museum at the South end of the boards is another must-see. If it rains one day of your stay why not head to the White Marlin Outlet Mall. And, if you get the time, a trip to Assateague National Park is recommended.

Throughout the year there is some incredible event happening in OC. The first weekend of May brings Springfest, a 4 day celebration which combines top-notch entertainment, fabulous food vendors, and an amazing craftshow. Later that month Cruisin' Ocean City rolls into town. You'll be blown away by the unbelievable street rods and muscle cars. You'll have a front row seat on our porch. In June there is an awesome air show. OC has been known as the White Marlin Capital of the World for decades and the White Marlin Open is held in August. The weigh-in takes place on 14th Street just 6 blocks North of us. In September the OC BikeFest roars into town as thousands strut their stuff on two wheels! You'll want to bring the whole family for the Holidays and make the Winterfest of Lights an annual event-November 16-January 1!

Why Don Bloom chose Ocean City

We always said, ' it's not a Beach House unless you can walk to the Beach.' Don began visiting Ocean City as a child. This wonderful seaside home was built for the Trimper Family in 1928. The Trimpers have operated the Amusement Park at the inlet for over 100 years! We were the winning bidders when it came to auction 11 years ago. We lovingly restored this survivor installing all new systems yet still managed to keep the old beach cottage charm.

What makes this apartment unique

Not at all like the cookie-cutter condos that tower over much of Ocean City, Blooms By The Sea is located on what was for years called 'Cottage Row' because of the many family homes here. It is one of the few great Ocean City homes still clad in cedar shingles. She has weathered many a storm since 1928 including the one in '33 that carved the Inlet which is still here to this day.

Splendid Hosts, Great Location, Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect, low-key hosts and wonderful location. We've been to OC many times over the years, almost always somewhere along the boardwalk. Decided to try something a little different this year and could not have been more satisfied. Located one, very short, block to the beach, the location can't be beat. Beach veterans and newbies alike will appreciate the convenient, reserved parking literally steps from the apartment door - which means vehicles can be unloaded/loaded in minutes, allowing more time for relaxing.

Other reviews of the apartment are totally accurate. We totally agree with other comments that the pictures don't do it justice. In addition to a quaint, cozy layout, the apartment was indeed quieter than expected - that's a good thing. The thoughtfully equipped kitchen was perfect for a week at the beach and allowed us to have several meals "at home".

Thanks to the Blooms for your hospitality. Now that we've discovered Blooms by the Sea we'll most certainly be back!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This place is great, exactly as advertised. It was very clean and the parking lot is just a few steps to the door. The walk to the boardwalk takes about 1 minute. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

I have visited Ocean City many times and stayed in many different places. None have compared to how lovely Blooms by the Sea is. Very very clean, comfortable, and roomy. The owners have put in a great deal of time bringing this lovely home back to life remodeling and updating. The photographs do not give you a sense of how roomy and comfortable this apartment is. The location and comfort made our visit a great experience. This is a do again experience for sure.

Spring car cruise

  • 5 of 5

This property was all we could ask for and more. It is a beautiful apartment that is clean, tastefully decorated and convenient to everything we came to Ocean City for. We had some expensive hot rods with us and the off street parking was very good for us. All in all, we got a wonderful value for a very reasonable cost and would give this property and the owners our highest recommendation for a vacation that you will remember.
