Google “Ocean City NJ Linen Rentals” for options, as providers change over time.
In the low season, we may be able to provide linens at a cost of $15 per bed. The beds will be made with the linens if we provide them, and you will need to strip them upon departure. We do not provide towels. In the summer, linens may be ordered by local providers, but we cannot provide them for you due to the limited time we have for changeovers.
Condo B sleeps 9 in beds, Condo A sleeps 13 in beds, and the Main House sleeps 16 in beds plus two on a sofa bed. The sofa bed is located in the family room of the Main House. The family room does not have a door.

Yes, within three weeks of the end of your rental, assuming no damage, missing items, lost beach tags, issues with cleanliness, or smoking within a unit. If something is damaged, the cost to repair or replace the item is deducted from the security. The cost of a replacement beach tag is $25. Smoking inside of a unit will result in forfeiture of the security deposit. For under age 25 rentals, the security may be forfeited if guests are repeatedly found on the property. Please see your lease and the guest policy for more information.
It depends on the date and unit(s) rented. Please see your lease or email for details. There is never a cleaning fee for the Main House during the summer.

Each rental gets two off-street parking spaces. Free street parking is available, but the ease of finding a spot depends on when you rent. The Main House gets the right side of the front driveway, closest to the fence, two spaces one behind the other. Condo A gets the left side of the front driveway, closest to the house, two spaces one behind the other. Condo A parking is closest to the house because of handicap accessibility. Condo B parking is behind the house, access via the alley, the two spaces on the far right side of the parking area, closest to the grills. PLEASE DO NOT USE THE ADDITIONAL SPACES AS THESE ARE FOR OUR FAMILY AND GUESTS!
We will allow a service dog for hearing or sight impaired persons only in Condo A, our handicap-friendly unit. All veterinary records are required as well as a grooming (flea-free) certificate. Pets are not permitted in or around the other units, but the other units are not necessarily allergen-free as we have a dog that occasionally enters the other units in the low season when we are performing maintenance and renovations. Bringing a pet onto the property (other than as stated above) will result in immediate termination of the lease.
