Arno Braunlinger purchased this Townhouse in 2015
Why Arno Braunlinger chose Gold Coast
We are relatively new owners purchasing this townhouse in January 2015. We have been vacationing in Ocean City for years. We have stayed in other shore towns but Ocean City has always felt like the right place for us. We love how much space and rooming flexibility this townhouse offers. Plus easy access to so many amenities. No reason to drive anywhere except to boardwalk.
What makes this Townhouse unique
This townhouse offers multifloor living which is unique to most of the Ocean City rentals. Adults can relax and unwind on the main living area while the children can enjoy thier own space in the lower level. The beach, playground, basketball and tennis courts are all with in walking distance . So are grocery stores and convenience stores/deli, a drug store, and ATM.

We had a great sisters only weekend. The house had plenty of room for the 5 of us. The house could use a little TLC but understandable since its October and the end of the renting season. Overall a nice house.
We enjoyed our stay. Would have liked to be closer to the beach, but 4 block walk wasn't terrible.
It was a good week.
This home is great for families with kids. Great location!
Everything went very smoothly with the rental process. Couldn’t be happier!
Tuckerton family VACA
We wanted to write this review to tell all who read it that our family of 9 had the best vacation ever. This condo we rented was top notch, with 3 families totally 9 people we had plenty of room and also the condo is set up to allow all families to have their privacy as well. Family area is awesome with kitchen dining room and living room flowing into each other wonderfully. Parking was plentiful as well. As awesome as condo was the location was amazing. We had to young grandkids that are 7 and 6 years old and with playground a block away, bike path very close and best of all, the beach was a 2 block walk. We were close enough for all our boardwalk activities but far enough that condo area was not congested . Condo within walking distance to Acme, Wawa, Cvs and Hoy’s store for our souvenirs. Owner was very responsive to our questions leading to our rental week. Just great to have that. We would and will be calling again to rent this property.
Amazing stay for the 2nd year in a row!
We enjoyed our stay once again at this beautiful home. The house is very accommodating for a larger group. Arno was easy to get ahold of and easy to book with. 10/10
So bad that we chose to leave and stay elsewhere
My friends and I were scheduled to rent this property from May 16th through May 19th. Upon arrival, the home smelled stale and obviously had not been prepared for our group. The carpets throughout were beyond filthy, and especially so in the kitchen/dining area. As I continued my cursory inspection, I heard a smoke alarm beeping on the third floor/bedroom area, which I thought was as a result of a dead battery. At that point I tried to call the owner, who did not answer my call, so I sent a text message. While I waited for a response, I continued to look around and found scuffed up walls, cracked ceilings, and bathroom floors so dirty that the soles of my shoes stuck to them.
One of our group (all of whom are over sixty years of age) went to get a battery for the nonworking smoke alarm. When she returned we attempted to change the battery which had to be done by climbing on a chair--not the safest for senior citizens. Upon removal of the old battery, we found that there were no contacts for the battery, and in fact, the smoke detector was purposefully left in a nonworking condition.
When I finally got in touch with the owner, he tried to excuse the condition of the property by telling me that "it's really outside of the season" to which I replied, "You took our money months ago. You had plenty of time to prepare for our stay." He then went on to tell me that the transmission died on his car and there was nothing he could do to remediate the issues with the house because he had to work and couldn't get down to the property until that Sunday. My friends and I decided that were didn't feel comfortable or safe in the property in its condition and we informed the owner that we wished to leave. All of this transpired within an hour of our arrival at the property.
The owner promised that we would get a full refund and made the partial refund finally on Sunday, from Thursday. I informed him that he shorted us $59.00, which he promised he would remedy. I have not heard from him since, nor has he responded to my message.
I have rented from Home Away many times now, and in various parts of the world and have never been even remotely disappointed. This property and its owner are the exception, but with that said, I would stay far away from this one. It isn;t worth the aggravation.
I stand firmly by my history of ALL other reviews of either a 4 or 5 rating and their comments on how I addressed any issues that I have come up and my communications with renters. I am learning from this experience to ensure all my renters understand that they are renting my personal property and dealing directly with me and that I live close to two hours away but am committed to handling all matters in a fair and timely manner as best possible. If expectations are for a professionally managed property then please book elsewhere. This renter has received full refund. Carpets have been cleaned as normally scheduled the first week of June. Conditions were not perfect for this stay but I have always been able to work with my renters to deal with any matters in a reasonable manner. Again please refer to my other reviews, you will see that this rating is the exception. For example, the next rating after this stay was a 5. I have multiple repeat renters and other high ratings for a reason.
