Vantage Offices Closed until April 30
Our Remote Staff is Here to Assist You
In an effort to keep our clients and team members safe – and to do our part in “flattening the curve” – all Vantage offices in Ocean City and Delaware will be closed until April 30, 2020. During this time, we will have staff working remotely to assist our guests and property owners. We are closely following this situation and relying heavily on the direction of state and local officials. Our hope is that these measures will bring about a swift end to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) so that we can begin welcoming guests again soon. For assistance, please call (800) 555-4099.
Government Closures in Ocean City & the Delaware Beaches
As you know, government authorities at every level are taking steps to stop the spread of COVID-19. This includes Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan, who has released a statement urging local citizens and out-of-town visitors to stay at home, saying, “To further protect our residents, visitors and Town employees we request that visitors postpone trips to Ocean City beginning immediately.” In addition, the beach and the Boardwalk have been closed until April 15, 2020, at which time the City Council will re-evaluate. Restaurants on the Boardwalk will be allowed to remain open for carry out service only. We are encouraging all guests to read Mayor Meehan’s statement and stay informed by regularly checking the Town of Ocean City’s website, which will be posting frequent updates.
Similarly, Governor Carney of Delaware has closed all beaches in the state and issued a closure of all non-essential businesses beginning on March 24, 2020 at 8:00 AM. This is to stay in effect until May 15, 2020, or until the public health threat is eliminated.

- Optional mid-week cleanings are available as an additional measure of safety and peace of mind (contact Reservations for more info).
- Anyone entering your vacation home will be required to wear gloves.
- We are aiding our cleaning vendors in procuring disinfectant cleaning supplies and have an ample supply of our own on hand.
