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.

Great beach vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Don and Nancy are very nice landlords. Great location, close to boardwalk and beach. Nice size and layout. Our first visit to Ocean City was memorable and makes us want to come back. The house played a big role in us enjoying our stay. Off street parking is a big plus. The only improvements I would suggest are: while the couch is very comfortable the other chairs in the livingroom are not. Mattresses should be updated.

Hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed this past week at the Bloom's place (we came home today). The apartment was very clean, better and bigger than we thought it would be. Has all the basics needed for a week-long trip to the beach (central air, washer/dryer, full kitchen, porch for sitting outside, private off-street parking). Located within a short one-block walk to the beach and boardwalk. We stayed with our two boys and the place was perfect. Crazy day running around all day, then come home to a nice quiet retreat that was welcomed by all. Thank you to the Bloom's for keeping the property so well maintained! I'm always a little anxious about rentals because well, you never know what you'll get. We would definitely stay again if we come back to Ocean City, MD.

Easily the best

  • 5 of 5

Of the 3 condo/apts I have stayed at, this one was easily the best. Great location - about 40 yards from the boardwalk, easy to get in and out of, private convenient parking and first floor. It was perfect for my daughter, her friend and me and would have been great for a fourth person. It is clean, well laid out and had a nice little porch. The owners were very nice. was available if I needed them (left me his number and they have a place very near, I never had to call them) and seemed genuinely concerned that you enjoyed it. If I come back to OC I will be staying here if it is open!

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

I booked for a short get away with my friend. We were looking for beach ambiance with easy access to the attractions, but not too close to the livelier action. We loved the house location, it is so so easy to unpack right from your own parking place on site. The apartment was so charming and very clean. We walked the short half block to the beach and boardwalk everyday loving how close we were! Don was very accommodating and keeps the property so beautiful. We understand his wife is the talent for the lovely garden and flowers 🌺. We already decided we would love to come next year, and then just make it our annual girls get away! We highly recommend!

We are in the old part of town which is still largely residential. We are 6 houses from the heart of the historic award-winning 2 1/2 mile boardwalk which has been recently renovated. We are just a few blocks from Route 50 to take you toward Assateague, West Ocean City and nearby Berlin. Bike rentals are on the Boardwalk just down the street.
