Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom on beach block--no streets to cross to get to beach.

This is not a typical rental: this is our second home, and it shows! This 3-bedroom condo comes with its own 2-car garage with automatic opener, so no worries about finding a precious high-season parking spot! There's also shower in the privacy of the garage to rinse off after lazing on the beach. Then come on up to the 3rd floor, where you'll enjoy ocean breezes and find a modern kitchen, cheery dining room with ocean views, and spacious living room with flat-screen TV/DVD and gas fireplace. The laundry room is down the hall, where you will find the master bedrom and guest room, each with queen beds. the 3rd bedroom has new bunk beds. There is a new TV in both the master and 3rd bedroom, both of which have DVD players. The master has its own bathroom and private balcony. We have provided DISH Network and wireless Internet service to our guests, along with new dishes, cutlery, and a Keurig coffee maker.

Then come on up to the 11x19' private rooftop deck, where you can sunbathe, read, watch the sunrise over the ocean, or enjoy a refreshing drink and meal with spectacular ocean views. If it gets realy hot, retreat to the second deck off the living room, where you can still enjoy beach & ocean views, but with a nice ocean breeze. We LOVE spending hours out here, sipping coffe as the sun rises over the ocean, to having a glass of wine late into the evening!

About The Owner

David was born and raised in England; Chris is a native North Carolinian and they have been married since 1974.

David and Chris are both very active in church and in Rotary, where David has served as District Governor twice. They volunteer for numerous activities, most notably for the orphanage they founded in Romania.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2012

Why The Owner chose Ocean City

As a real estate professional, David KNOWS the Ocean City market well. When it came to choosing the best home for themselves, he searched for a long time until the PERFECT property and location came along. Now you can benefit!

What makes this condo unique

From the afternoon we came back from the settlement, Chris insisted that we treat this not as a rental, but as our home. The new furniture is top quality, the decor tasteful--not sterile rental white! We simply love coming to 311 Corinthian almost every weekend, even during the winter. The stresses of everyday life seem to evaporate when we relax and watch the ocean, the dolphins swimming by, the sounds of seagulls...we hate to leave on Monday mornings!

Loved it with sour ending

  • 3 of 5

We absolutely loved the location and the house is adorable with all it's little nooks and porches. We did not think it was in perfect order pristine condition when we arrived but were so happy to be there we let little things go. The screen door did not slide the first time we used it, so we never opened it again just left it open and used the inside door. The rooftop decks views are superb. There were 6 chaise lounges that were not all opened and still had the wrapping around them, so we opened and setup neatly. The tables were not cleaned so we wiped them off. The garage had so many great extras, chairs umbrellas etc but were not neatly arranged. There was sand on the floor from everyone hosing off - my husband sweeped it daily so it was neater. We did our Son's dog that I arrange upfront with the owner. When I received the contract it was checked off no dogs so I immediately sent an email to the owner reiterating that we had a dog. He said no problem he just included that in case someone has 2 Dobermans. He said simple cross off and write on the contract which I did. On our last day we vacuumed and wiped up the counters etc. Washed the sheets and folded them and put on the bed. We washed extra towels and put them in the dryer so that the cleaning people could find and fold. Instructions to this were in the booklet left at the house. I straightened the house the way I do at home when I know the cleaning people are coming. My husband also cleaned all the windows on the porch as they were full of salt so that we could enjoy the view.

Saturday when we got home I received an awful call from the owner sayng that he is in California & stating I left the house a mess and was no longer welcome there and that he did not give me permission to bring a dog. Luckly I have my email stating this from the beginning. I told the owner it was left in order for the cleaning people to come in an go through, He also stated that the people who arrived were really upset at the cleanliness. I said if you had a cleaning service why would it still be dirty? He said it took the cleaning people 2 hours to clean, which is ridiculous.I have been renting at in Ocean City for 30 years and have never been treated more harshly then I did this year. I am not going to let me ruin my taste for Ocean City but have learned my lesson here with this owner. So yes we did enjoy our week but unfortunately were mistreated on our last day of vacation.

Owner's Response: It is interesting that the guest wrote a superb recommendation in the guest book without mentioning one negative thing--and only wrote the above review after we called her to task for the mess. So here's the story. The guest did NOT state she had a dog. The lease was submitted with "No" written beside "Dogs allowed" and she did not pay the extra fee for a dog. The lease which she signed said the guest is responsible for leaving the home in the same condition as they find it. My wife and I personally inspected the home prior to her arrival and it was its normal spotless self. There was nothing broken, no a speck of dust. As usual, our cleaners had done a great job. The day this guest arrived, I was in L.A. the cleaners called to say it was the worst they have ever seen in SIX YEARS of cleaning our home every week. Dog hair everywhere--including on the sofa, under the bed, even in the oven. They vacuums twice, then they wet-mopped twice, then they vacuumed again. They thought they had it cleaned up after two hours (it normally takes them about 50 minutes), but then the next guest arrived and called me in L.A to say she still found dog hair and sand. The outgoing guest left dishes in the dishwasher and clothes in the washer (another violation of the lease). We have never had anything but 5-star review from the dozens of guests we've welcomed every week for 6 years, and this is the first time we have ever banned a guest from returning. Our lease states that if they leave the home in unreasonably dirty condition, we will deduct $125 from their deposit for the extra cleaning, and that's exactly what we did. We charged them nothing for the broken door, nothing for the broken smoke detector, nothing for the broken thermostat. We simply ask our guests to apply the Golden Rule and treat our home with respect, and this time, it just didn't work out that way. And only when I completed the VRBO review of our guest did she write what you just read above!

Incredible location and views, it felt like being at home!!

  • 5 of 5

The location, the views from the decks, and the house itself are incredible. The home has such a nice setup and touch to it that it feels like you are at home. Having the garage was also a huge plus and made getting in and out so much easier than having to search for spaces or park blocks away... but everything is actually walk-able anyway - restaurants, boardwalk, church, its all there.. we will definitely be back!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review. You picked up on the fact that we have always taken the approach that you are guests in our home, rather than simply "renters" of a shore property. So we're so glad you enjoyed our home--and your Ocean City vacation, and hope to welcome you back again soon! David & Chris

Exactly what we were hoping for!

  • 5 of 5

The whole experience was exactly what we were hoping for. It was very convenient to the beach and boardwalk and the views were great. As in previous reviews the steps were a challenge at times but it was great exercise. The shower in the garage was great to rinse off prior to going into the condo. This was our first time using VRBO and I can say without hesitation it will not be our last. Thank you for allowing us to share your home for a week. Can't wait till next year.

nice week at the shore

  • 5 of 5

Delighted with balcony and rooftop deck. Spent most early morning on balcony watching boardwalk and ocean. Dolphins one morning. Clean place. Garage is tight! Go thru parking lot for better angle. Steps might be a problem for some. Everything is raised up to protect from flooding in hurricanes so lots of steps. I made them part of my exercise program! Really like that OC is a dry town. No drunks. No bars on every corner. Real family place.

Fabulous OC Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

This property was quiet, close to the beach and boardwalk, had every possible amenity, and was absolutely lovely! We did not need to cross any streets to get to the beach - big plus for kids wanting to be independent! It was walkable to lots of great restaurants, and the place had everything we could have wanted from fully stocked kitchen to games and puzzles. The roof top deck was great for reading in the sun in the morning, but caught shade in the afternoon, and the front corner deck was shaded, caught the breezes, and had a view of the boardwalk and ocean - perfect for morning coffee. The bedrooms were quiet, comfortable, lots of extra pillows and blankets, lights in the right places for reading, and generous storage in bureaus and closets. We especially appreciated the welcome basket on our arrival, it felt like we were staying with age old friends, rather than renting. The unit was surprisingly private and quiet - would recommend it highly!

If you use VRBO/HomeAway to pay for your stay, they will impose fees on both the guest and the property owner. If you choose this method of payment, the owner will ask the guest to reimburse him for the fees he is charged.
The simplest and least expensive way to reserve is to send the enquiry to David@DaveForward.com. David will then confirm availability, put the property on hold, and send you a lease. You can simply return the lease with your deposit check, and then pay the balance by check 30 days before you arrive. No fees to anybody! But if you use VRBO/Homeaway to pay by credit card, the owner will deduct the fees they charge him from your security deposit refund.
