As you step down from the enclosed deck toward the water there is a large patio area and garden perfect for sunbathing, grilling or a cocktail as the sun goes down. Below the patio is the boat dock to keep your boat or jet skis or use one of the two stand up paddle boards that are included.

The house has recently been upgraded with new carpet, furniture and paint. A new Weber platinum, charcoal grill with gas start is provided for your outdoor cooking. The kitchen is fully furnished with quality cookware and all the utensils for home cooking or entertaining a large group.

There is also plenty of shopping at area outlets and the quaint town of Berlin with its first class restaurants and antique stores is also a short drive.

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

Clean comfortable house for seven of us in quiet area. Within driving distance of lots of activities

  • 5 of 5

Everyone in my family had a good time from our 3 yr old grandson to his 65 yr old grandparents. We visited Assateague, Ocean City boardwalk, outlet mall, fishing pier, and all the Ocean Pines pools. And we made good use of grill and paddle boards in the garage. We were grateful to be able to have our beloved dogs with us. House met all our needs and owner was very responsive. Particularly appreciated how well-stocked the kitchen was; anything we forgot was there already from tissues to Old Bay seasoning. We particularly enjoyed the Ocean Pines pools and the Ocean Pines Beach Club at Ocean City. Get your pool passes ahead of time because Administration Office is closed. on weekend. They will have them ready at police station.

Only reservation I would have about the home is that more than eight occupants would find the living area a little small.

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.
