About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, 6 Sleeps

This unique and lovely 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath Penthouse occupies the entire top 7th floor of The Hanscom (formerly the Homestead Hotel).

Why Kristie Chandler chose World

When this property came on the market we knew we had a great opportunity to own a unique home and enjoy Ocean City and all that it has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

The unobstructed views from both Ocean and Bay decks are amazing! The convenience of the location that includes parking can't be beat.

A Warm Welcome and 5-star Views

  • 5 of 5

My fam of three loved our stay. The location was perfect—a block from the beach, a few blocks from town. Kris showed us everything we needed to know about this historic building and our penthouse suite. The views out every window and both the bay and ocean patios were gorgeous—we loved every minute. As the walls don’t reach the ceiling, our 9yo did surprise us with some chatty convo from his bedroom as we watched TV in the living area at night. (But we promised him more boardwalk time the next day and he fell asleep fast.) The kitchen had everything we needed, the beach chairs and cart were a huge help. Loved our stay!

Beautiful view and very nice rental

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much and the view was absolutely beautiful. The pictures do not due justice as the accommodations were much larger and nicer than expected. The owner was extremely nice and helpful and thought of everything to the point of labeling everything even down to what light switches did what and provided so many items which really alleviated the amount of things we needed to pack. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to ocean city. The complimentary bucket of Johnson's popcorn was great too. We've been coming to Ocean City for many years and the Penthouse has been by far the best place we have stayed. We would personally like to thank the owner for making the Penthouse one of the best properties in Ocean city.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd year my family has been at the penthouse. We love it. There are fantastic views from both private balconies - ocean views & city views; ability to watch sunset & sunrise. The beds are very comfortable. There is cable TV in every room, for those rainy days. Full kitchen with nice fridge, oven and microwave.

The location is fabulous... so close to the boardwalk, water park and beach!

The owner is awesome, organized and has thought of everything.

Absolutely Stunning View

  • 5 of 5

The view is beautiful. While we didn't have the best weather I was so glad to have all the windows to at least not feel so gloomy. You can see the ocean as well as the bay. The condo has everything you need but towels. So if you aren't attached to a certain beach item don't bother packing it. The kitchen is newly remolded and the owner has it well stocked even with K Cups and spices. Make sure you check the cupboards before you shop. If you are into history you will enjoy the pictures of the Hotel in the lobby and grand staircase. A Lot of celebrities visited the Penthouse which was the solarium. The crew that work at the hotel are very nice and Phil the maintenance person is so pleasant and helpful when we lost our keys to our bike lock. Ask him if you get a chance to tell you the story of his grandson's training and graduation for Special Forces in the Army it is an incredible story.

The location is perfect. You are literally close to everything.

Great place to relax and enjoy Ocean City

  • 5 of 5

We love the Penthouse! With the covered porches on 2 sides of the rental, the apartment feels as big as the views themselves. It was quiet, and peaceful, and because it's so close to the boardwalk and beach we could do everything we wanted easily. We would love to go back. (The complimentary bucket of Johnson's Popcorn provided by the owner is another fun benefit - not gonna lie :) )

Very nice. Great location and very comfortable accommodations.

  • 4 of 5

We liked the newly remodeled kitchen. The ocean view was very good, daytime staff accommodating, and location to the boardwalk was excellent. The TV in the living area should be mounted lower and I look forward to an updated bathroom. Overall, we would stay there again without question.
