About Matt Ballenger or Wendy Subasic

This property has been in our family for about 48 years. Our mother was one of the last five remaining charter members of Ocean Pines. The original 'cottage' that was built here was taken off the foundation and a new home was built in 2001.

This is the first time the home has been offered for rental. My sister and I have attempted to ensure that our home is as enjoyable to you as it is to us.

There are numerous upgrades to the home such as new furniture and appliances.

Matt Ballenger or Wendy Subasic purchased this house in 1968

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We arrived, and I was pleasantly surprised to see how well stocked the house was. It truly felt like a home away from home. We have family that own a home in Ocean Pines, but found we spent most of our eat in dinners at "our hous". The enclosed porch was large and could accommodate us all fo dinners. I also loved going out to the enclosed porch in the morning for a quiet cup of coffee.

The house was great! Very comfortable! I would totally recommend this home for a vacation!!

Very nice and clean.

  • 5 of 5

We have a boat so it was great that the house is on a canal. Neighbors are very nice. House was plenty big enough for the seven of us. Not too far far from Ocean City and the beach. Owners great to work with. Enjoyed our vacation.

The house was exactly as described. We had great communication with the owners prior to check in and our stay was home away from home.

Great family time at this lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an absolutely wonderful time at this property! The home and location were perfect because it accommodated all of us (including our 15 pound furry baby), and the neighborhood was centrally located to all the places we wanted to go to - the beaches, restaurants, and shopping sites in Ocean City, Assateague Island, Fenwick Island, Bethany Beach, etc. We also enjoyed the Farmer's Market in Ocean Pines as well as the indoor pool, which were a close proximity to the house. We felt comfortable at the house, and we thank you for a relaxing getaway for our Easter holiday week!!!!!!!

Great property and is as good as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year we have stayed at this house. It is always neat, clean and very comfortable. Matt is great to work with and very accommodating. It's very nice to sit out on the canal and watch the boats go by. We had a great vacation.

A Nice and Relaxing Week in Maryland

  • 4 of 5

It's the third time in six years that we've rented a house in Ocean Pines, and this house was the best Ocean Pines rental to date. We really enjoyed having a family room, a den and a separate covered porch for evening games, movies and family fun. We were able to easily sleep 6 people for the entire week, and the Kitchen worked well for preparing lunches/dinners while being able to watch the young kids running around. Another big plus for this house, unlike others we've had in Ocean Pines and other areas around OCMD, is that it's in touch with the 21st century. DirecTV with DVR to record shows, good WiFi -- you can continue living in today's technology-driven world and be attached to the office and the outside world while on vacation. We were a bit bummed that the paddle boat advertised in the VRBO listing wasn't there anymore, but we had a really great week nonetheless.

My only small complaint would be the cleaning service. And I'm saying that while at the same time acknowledging that this was the cleanest rental we've had in Ocean Pines. When we walked in -- it looked/smelled really clean -- but this turned out to be mostly cosmetic. When you really get into the house, we found clumps of dog hair, window sills with significant amounts of dust, etc.. Again, to be fair, this seems to be par for the course with most rental houses. The cleaning services don't do a great job -- they seem to be content with the bare minimum -- so maybe we just need to lower our expectations for next year.

Overall, a great week. Good communication and customer service from the owner, we'd definitely recommend this property to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a nice and honest review. We also appreciate your understanding of how cleaning services work. We spend a considerable amount of time in the Spring getting the house ready for the season including a thorough and deep cleaning. We had a new cleaning service this year and I explained we are a pet friendly home and that we charge extra for pets. I told them if they needed to spend extra time cleaning house to do so and charge accordingly. I will pass on your review so they understand going forward. I'm glad that despite this you and your family enjoyed your stay. Matt
