    Such a great place to bring a family, and lots of things to do right on the property—they had kayaks, volleyball, a fire pit, and some other backyard games. It was awesome to be right on the water with our own dock and a great view of nature.

    What a gem!

    At the bungalows we felt like we were hidden away in a waterfront oasis! Kayaks, boating, swimming, crabbing and fishing... plenty to do if you feel like staying in, but just minutes from Ocean City and Assateague beaches and activities! Our hosts were kind and helpful and our fellow guests were friendly and we ended up hanging out at the camp fire making new friends. Our room was clean and beautifully decorated. Couldn’t have asked for a nicer week!

    We stayed at Back Bay bungalows three years ago and had just as great a time this time as then. Everyone associated with this rental is wonderful, friendly and efficient. You could not find a place in the OC area with a better view or more convenient to everything you want to do or need to obtain. Will be back again and again.

    We just recently stayed here because friends of ours were getting married right down the street. I have to say I have never experienced a property like this little gem on the bay! First off the property itself is wonderful! Right on the bay with kayaking, picnic tables and hammocks. The Bungalows themselves are very cute and comfortable. Bill and Evelyn take care of the property and are about the cutest couple you meet!! They were both very welcoming! Everyone who stayed at the property was the exact same way! Very welcoming and loved to talk! We couldn't have asked for a better experience and will most definitely be coming back!

    What a great place to relax and get away for either a long week or a little getaway. Our daughter had a softball tournament in OC for a week and we didn't want to stay near all the hustle and bustle of downtown OC. Back Bay Bungalows was the perfect place for us. Everyone there was so nice and helpful. The view was amazing. There were lots if different activities we could do while we were there. From fishing of the pier, canoeing on the bay, pingpong, corn hole and just hanging out by the water in some hammocks. I had a great experience with dealing with the owner Debbie and her parents that maintain the place. We look forward to the day we can stay again. This place was a gem.

    Loved the location. The reviews were spot on with regards to decor, cleanliness, amenities, check in and check out. Such a peaceful setting watching a sunrise with a cup of coffee or just chilling with your favorite drink. Close to the beach, casino, golf and towns of Berlin, West OC. We will be back if we could get a spot again at this wonderful place.

    Location was perfect. Really close to stores and restaurants. Maybe 15 min to ocean city. Everything was so well kept. Grass cut neat. Volleyball. Cornhole. Etc. Clotges line by our room. The composite decking was nice. The adorable colored chairs matched the shutters. Literally like 20 steps to the bay. There were several hammocks and hanging chairs around the property. Two different sandy areas complete with toys for the kids to play in the sand. They had an old boat steering box set up in the sand. So cute. There were two piers to fish from. We took a little net and bucket and first just scooped up small shrimp to fish with. Caught a couple little fish using them. Then we took some ham and were able to attack some minnows from the dock. Caught the most with those. Nothing big though. It was fun anyway. We bought a small crab trap at Walmart and zip tied some chicken necks. We also just got crab line. We caught several crabs. But they needed to be 5 inches I believe to keep. We didn’t end up cooking any. We just had fun with it. There is a pot and Mallots if we’d wanted to. There a covered area with a grill and an area to boil them too. There was a fire put on the point that we never made it around to using. There is a key coded gate to the property. Evelyn (one of the property managers) was just a sweetheart and so nice to our boys (2&7). The room was all we needed. We pulled the couch out for our kids at night. Everything was clean and up to date. There was a coffee pot and we had some filters there as well as salt and pepper, some hand towels, a sponge, a few trash bags, dish soap, hand soap and toilet paper. The air conditioner was nice and cool. The ceiling was a nice touch with the rafters and hut detail. The blinds were nice for privacy. The one dresser was enough for our clothes. There was a TV tray and a white fold out table which helped for us to have something to eat off of. We really enjoyed our stay.

    This was our families first time visiting the Back Bay Bungalows. It’s a real gem! You can’t beat the amazing price, the sweetest hosts Ev and Bill and the amenities. For what we paid we would have paid triple to rent kayaks for three alone. Everything you see in their photos is exactly as it is there. The room was emaculate! The AC was cool, the hammocks relaxing, Adirondack chairs comfortable. The water pressure in the shower was perfect and the spot was high which was great for my taller husband! We are already planning our next visit this summer because we didn’t want to leave. Our son said he wanted to live there but he would miss our pups too much. ;) It is close to everything yet is just over the bridge but far away enough to be private and relaxing away from the craziness of the evenings down by the boardwalk. We brought beach chairs and far too many things with us because they had everything there that we would need to fill our days, unplug and enjoy our family together. Thank you so much, we will see you soon! #jnjadventures2018

    Beautiful, peaceful property and close to beaches, golf and boardwalk. Comfy and quaint bungalow. We were able to take naps on the hammock, cook out in the pavilion and have bonfires. Owner's parents are wonderful and quite a hoot which I told Evy as we were leaving today! Sad to leave but knowing when it's vaca time again that we have this place to look forward to staying at makes us happy!

    We had a perfect stay. The bungalow had everything we needed and more. The main visit was for the Spring Hot Rod show.. But I had the thrill of taking many wonderful photos of the sunrises. The feeling of being safe was another plus. I could go out before dawn to take photos and feel safe.. Want to return as soon as we get summer plans made. Thanks to the fine family member we had the honor of meeting Margery & Tom

Our view of the bay was spectacular and we sat every morning watching the sun rise over the water and every night set again. I'm so glad we chose the bungalows for our stay!! Everyone was so nice.

    My family and I really enjoyed our stay here. It is located in a quite area with outstanding views of the bay! Every morning I couldn't wait to wake up to have a cup of coffee on my porch to watch the sun rise, it was so beautiful and amazing! They have so many free amenities on the property from fishing, kayaking, corn hole, etc. we were easily entertained without having to go pay extra somewhere else. I'd also like to add that they are close in proximity to the beach, market and other local eateries. The atmosphere was very family oriented which was a very welcoming feeling, we will definitely be back in the near future.

    My girlfriend and I spent a perfect and relaxing weekend at the pink cottage and really hated to leave. I went to see if it was a place I could go by myself if I were inclined for a solitary get away and I was pleased to see that it was all I had hoped for. The cottage was super clean and neat, well thought out for space and comfort and our hosts (all 4 of them) were very responsive and helpful, not to mention extremely friendly. I especially like the fact that there is a locked gate for the property so it's very private. We enjoyed sunsets and sunrises from the porch and watched the local seabirds. Minor glitches were dealt with quickly and efficiently by Debbie and her spouse and parents. This is my 5th home rental, so I am aware of all that can go wrong or right. Trust me, it all goes right at Back Bay.

    My friend and I came for a girls paddleboarding vacation. They are right on a nice quiet part of the bay, perfect for kayaking, paddleboarding and wildlife. We could leave the room and walk 10 steps to the water. The property was immaculate with a nice fire pit on the point. The room was very cute, well maintained and very clean. Bill, Ev and Deb are wonderful hosts. Friendly, helpful and a lot of fun! My friend already booked a return trip with her husband, and I hope to come back soon, too.

    I stayed at this wonderful resort while I was taking care of my mother-in-law after her surgery. I needed a place to relax. This was a wonderful place. There is lots to do, games to play. A cool breeze kept me cool. I loved sitting on the porch looking out on the water. The local osprey kept me company. It was still off season so really quiet. I would guess that summer time the air would be filled with children playing. The studio apartment was super clean and newly renovated. I wish I would have had time to take out one of the kayaks and explored the water. Next time. It was really close to a lot of activities, but still felt like you were in a remote place.
