Oceana condo description
Breathtaking views abound in this corner 2-bedroom condo. Feel the breeze on your face as you watch the sun rise over the ocean with a front seat view from every window. This is what you think of when you think of going to the Beach - Beach Front.
If you are looking to get away from the noise on the boardwalk to the south and the crowds of the high-rises to the north, look no further, this is the perfect location. Midtown location means that it is close to everything and yet you can escape the crowds when you want.
The private balcony is perfect for watching the sunrise or the dolphins playing in the ocean. Sit back in the top-of-the-line Telescope Casual (Adirondack) lounge chairs, enjoy your favorite beverage, and soak-in the sights and sounds of the ocean and beach. We have installed lighting on the balcony so you can continue to enjoy it after the sun goes down. Wave to your friends or family on the beach and listen to the surf as you enjoy the best view of the beach that Ocean City has to offer.
The large Master Bedroom has wall-to-wall windows overlooking the ocean, sliding glass door entrance to the balcony and a double window facing north with views of the beach and bay. It is easy to get to sleep in the comfy King Sized bed with the sound of the surf and the cool ocean breeze. The Master Bathroom is connected to the bedroom through a large walk-through closet which can be used as a changing room as well.
This is an owner-maintained condo and it shows. All appliances are new, within the last 5 years, and the unit is tastefully decorated throughout. Owner's beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach towels, coolers, and beach toys in the main closet can be used on the beach. Owner’s linens for all four beds are stored in the Master Bedroom closet and may be borrowed with the provision that they are washed and stored prior to check-out.
Just steps away from the elevator - sun, sand, and surf await you. Consistently ranked by the National Resources Defense Council as one of the cleanest beaches in the U.S., Ocean City's popularity continues to grow. Since there are no residences across the street from our condo, this section of the beach is normally one of the least crowded. Setup on your favorite beach spot in the morning and come and go up to the condo as you wish.
The private outdoor pool provides a refreshing alternative to the ocean. The pool deck has lounges and chairs and the pool has a roped off shallow end. A combination code (provided by the owner) is needed to access the pool. There is no lifeguard at the pool and children must be accompanied by an adult. There is an outdoor shower at the entrance to the pool to wash off sand prior to entering the pool. The pool hours are 10 AM to 8 PM and is open from Memorial Day through the second week of September.
There is one oversize assigned parking space for the condo. There is also on-street parking on a first come, first serve basis. During the off-season, parking is open.
This condo is wonderful for enjoying the off-season, whether it be walks on the beach, shopping, going to shows and events, or just chilling indoors. In the Spring time there is excitement in the air as the resort prepares for the upcoming summer season and there are many activities and events to see and do. In the Fall, the ocean is still warm, the days are generally warm, almost everything is still open (lots of sales) and it is much less crowded. The owners reserve Winters for performing cleaning/maintenance and enjoyment for us.
In 2013, we have remodeled the Master Bathroom (the Main Bathroom was remodeled in 2012), installed a new and larger water heater, replaced the rug in the dining area, and installed a light over the tub in the Main Bath. The exterior of the building has been freshly painted as well as the elevator lobby. The pool furniture has been replaced this year. The town of Ocean City has installed a ramp at the 83 St entrance (replacing stairs) provides much easier access to the beach.
To help ensure that your stay is hassle free, we have contracted with a property management company to provide you with 24X7 emergency service as needed if something goes wrong, just a phone call away. You also are guaranteed a clean unit when you arrive (if the unit has not been cleaned to your satisfaction, a cleaning crew will be dispatched immediately to clean the unit to your satisfaction). Combination lock entry to the unit means no more keys to keep up with and no chance of getting locked out. A Guest Handbook is given to each guest prior to arrival which describes the check-in process, information about the unit, and how to get help when needed.
There are plenty of places to go within walking distance from the condo. Within a couple of blocks of the condo you can find many dining options, convenient stores, used book store, clothing stores, beach sundries store, hair salon, gas, and a Dunkin' Donuts (plus a Fracture Prune doughnut cafe, new in 2012). We are looking forward to the new restaurant, “Hooked” (seafood restaurant by the same owners of “Just Hooked” in Fenwick) which is replacing “La Hacienda” across the street. Bus service is available for unlimited trips for $3 per day (children are free). The buses for the boardwalk stop across the street from the condo approximately every 10 minutes during the summer. A trip to the boardwalk will take approximately 10 minutes by car and 20 minutes by bus.
On the days where the weather is cloudy or you just feel like staying in, there are plenty of things to do inside the condo. In the living room, there is a 40' HDTV LCD TV mounted on the wall with a full-motion mount which allows the TV to tilt and swivel which is perfect for watching TV on the balcony or in the kitchen. Attached to the TV is an HDMI connected HD cable box (over 200 channels) with DVR to store your shows while you are on the beach. The Blue Ray player is connected to the Internet which in addition to playing both Blue Ray and standard DVDs, provides access to Netflix with thousands of free movies and shows and Pandora which is a free music service. The Play Station 2 in the living room is Internet connected, has a hard disk drive, memory cards, and wireless controllers. The Master Bedroom has a 26' LCD HDTV and is connected to a Blue Ray player (connected to the Internet for Netflix and Pandora) and a HD cable box (more than 100 channels). The 2nd bedroom has a 42' HDTV LCD TV with cable, a DVD player, and a Play Station 2 (exactly the same as the one in the living room except with no Internet connection). Every TV includes a VGA cable so you can watch movies or shows from your laptop on the TVs. There are lots of DVDs to watch (we started the season with over 140) including many kid-friendly movies. Our PS2 game collection is has 20 games (and growing). There are over 100 books to read and lots of board games in the condo. Many of our guests really appreciate the free wireless available in the condo.
Our family and many of our guests like to save money by cooking some of their meals in the condo instead of going out to restaurants. Our kitchen is well stocked with appliances, pots and pans, spices, and dishware for most meals. Whether it is eggs, bacon, and pancakes for breakfast, steamed crabs for lunch, or a turkey dinner, this kitchen has what you need. There are many appliances that you would not normally find in others rentals, including an ice crusher, blender, hand mixer, juicer, food processor, rice steamer, electric knife, coffee grinder, can opener, and crock-pot. We love the four slot toaster with the bagel setting and a guillotine-style bagel slicer for making two perfectly toasted bagels at once. The kitchen is stocked with a good selection of pots and pans, enough to satisfy most, if not all, the meals that you would normally use at home. Many of the pots and pans are part of the Cuisinart collection and include 8” and 10” skillets, 1.5 and 2.5 quart sauce pans with covers, a 3 quart sauté pan with cover, and a 4 quart dutch oven with cover. All of the Cuisinart cookware is non-stick, oven safe, and dishwasher safe. There is a turkey roasting pan, a spaghetti pot/steamer, a splatter guard, cutting boards, a rolling pin, a loaf pan, a strainer that fits the kitchen sink, a 15 and 19 quart crab steamer pot, a round cooking stone, broiler rack, cookie sheets, and baking pans. On the inside of the cabinet door there is a rack to hold three rolls of wraps. The owner keeps the rack stocked with aluminum foil, wax paper, and plastic wrap but can’t guarantee that all of the wraps will be stocked depending on usage by prior guests. Our family uses the kitchen often and will frequently add to the kitchen stock.
The dining room table has seating for six and has a removable leaf which makes it convenient for playing cards or games with a foursome. The breakfast bar in the dining area has two swivel stools. There is full place settings for eight. Most of the dishware is Corelle which is oven/microwave safe and break resistant. The cups are plastic to eliminate glass breakage on the tile. The wine glasses however, are glass.
There is lots of closet space including a walk-through master bedroom closet, double closet in the second bedroom, and a closet in the main area. There is a laundry hamper and luggage rack in the Master closet. The laundry room has a washer and dryer and racks for hanging clothes. Both bedroom have plush carpeting and are tastefully decorated. Each bedroom closet includes fans, blankets, and extra pillows.
We do accept major credit cards, as well as personal checks, in order to give you more payment options.
Totally beachfront, outdoor pool, assigned parking, central A/C, cable and Internet, washer/dryer, fully stocked kitchen, and king size bed in the HUGE master bedroom with views of the beach on three walls are just some of the reasons why this unit is the place to spend your vacation.

Video games, beach toys, DVD's, boogie boards, and board games for the kids.

Kids absolutely love the pool and you can check on them from the hallway just outside the unit. The condo is not childproof per se, but we have mindful of little ones in the contents and placement of objects within the condo.

ReviewsWrite a review
My husband and I stayed here for a week and really loved the place, it is spacious, beautiful, clean and well organized and everything is easy to use. The owners make it very easy to know what to do, how to get into the building, and how to check in and out. Dave and Teresa are awesome! We cooked several dinners and everything we could have needed was there to cook, bake everything! The deck is awesome with a clear view of the ocean and at night I could hear the waves from the master bedroom. This would be a great family vacation rental as well as we did not even venture into about half of the condo just being the two of us. Rent this condo for your vacation! You will be very happy with it!

My sisters and I enjoyed a wonderful getaway at the condo. It was clean and bright and inviting. All the comforts of home were available to us. The view from the balcony, especially at sunrise, was spectacular! I would recommend this vacation spot to everyone.

We have stayed many times in this jewel that we happened upon on VRBO several years ago. Our recent trip happened to be a really bad weather week, but we were in the right place. This condo is so comfortable, roomy, cheery and stocked like your own home. Whether you are looking for a game, a book, a movie, a spice to throw in your crockpot meal, they have it.. The owners are accessible and the best ever to deal with. Highly recommended!

Perfect in every way. It was very clean and it had everything we could possibly want or need. It was quiet except for hearing the ocean and we could even see dolphins from the deck. Highly recommend.

Very Happy with our Return Visit
Very Happy with our Return Visit
We just returned from our second stay at Dave and Teresa's beach retreat and had, as expected, a great visit. This condo is the perfect headquarters for a terrific OC vacation -- the ocean view is tremendous, beach access is quick and easy, it's central to most everyplace you want to go in OC and it's very, very comfortable. Please take some time to read my review from September 2012 because all of the good things I had to say in that review are still true. Rather than restate all those things here, I'll add a few extras that didn't fit in the allotted space last time. A few things worth mentioning again though are the views, the cleanliness and at-home feeling this condo provides. Being the corner unit there are views out all the windows and ocean sounds in all rooms. The balcony is private, large enough with four very comfortable chairs and the perfect place to relax after a tough day in the sun! It's hard to beat watching spectacular sunrises over the ocean without even leaving the bed but you can do that every day from the master bedroom of this condo. One extra observation we confirmed this year is that all of the folks staying in this building -- owners and renters alike -- seem to be very nice, respectful, friendly people. We recognized several families from last year and struck up many conversations during our stay. I think it shows that other owners in this building must take pride in their condos just like Dave and Teresa do and good neighbors contribute to the relaxing atmosphere. This condo really is centrally located. We like to roam a good bit while we're down there but you could easily park your car and live happily without it as so many things are within easy walking distance. Some of the best restaurants in town are very near by, convenience and beer/wine stores are just across the highway and, most importantly, the Fractured Prune store is a 2 minute walk and you pass a Dunkin Donut enroute! If you are new to OC you'll find the recommendations in the condo's handbook a great starting point for activities and dining. We've been going to OC for many years and we share many of the same favorite spots that Dave and Teresa list. Over our many years of vacationing in OC we've built our checklist of essentials and Dave and Teresa's beach retreat hit all of those and more. We are very happy returning renters and expect to return many more times.

A great week at the beach

We loved the condo and found everything clean and beautiful. The owners provided us with all the information we needed to feel immediately at home and the views from both rooms were wonderful. The condo is in a great location for walking to food and the beachfront was never too crowded. We plan to go back next year and look forward to it.

I will start by saying that the owners,Teresa and Dave were very accommodating and helpful. We so enjoyed our stay, it was relaxing and fun. The location of their condo is great and we loved the corner unit. The ocean view was breathtaking from the balcony to the kitchen. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen clean and well stocked and felt like home(minus the ocean of course). We would most definitely want to go back and stay there. Thank you to the Whelan's for sharing their home and look forward to returning some day.

We enjoyed our stay at your Oceanside beach retreat and would definitely recommend it to others. The owner responded quickly to any issues we had to allow our whole family get the most from our visit. The condo is well kept and clean, and well supplied with books, board games, videos, and video games for time spent inside as well as beach chairs, umbrellas, and toys for time spent enjoying the beach. We were there during the "supermoon" and had an incredible view from our balcony - the beach was so bright during the middle of the night! Also, one of the most relaxing features was opening the windows at night and listening to the waves reach the shore. Thanks again!

When we arrived at this condo the first thing we did is go straight to the balcony to check out the view....WOW! We could not of asked for a better one. Beautiful!! The condo was clean and stocked with everything as promised. Great location, not at all too crowded. It was short walking distance to many shops & restaurants and only a 10 minute drive to the boardwalk. We had a great time during our stay and felt very at home when we were her. We would definately come back! Thank you Dave & Teresa, for a great getaway!

We couldn't have expected more!

There was no hidden agenda in the showing of this property. The only surprises were positive ones! Owners were always quick to respond when we had inquiries. Being from New England, I didn't believe that dolphins came that far up north to Maryland....we saw them every day! Amenites are great......convenient shower to rinse beach sand before returning to condo. The restaurant recommendations by the owners were very accurate. Terrific view from the deck and master bedroom. There is plenty to do here for the ones who "like to keep going" but also a great retreat to just "chill out". We were happy to reside away from the boardwalk, but yet a close enough drive to visit. We would love to return.

About the owner: We are a family of four with a young adult son and teen-age daughter. We live in Arlington Virginia which is about a 3 hour drive to Ocean City. We have been going to O.C. for over 25 years as a family. We started out by staying in hotels which was OK, but very expensive and cramped quarters, especially as our family grew. We are a family that likes to cook and eating out all of the time got to be expensive for us as well. We were offered accommodations at a friend’s condo one year and loved it so much that we never went back to using hotels since. We come up to the beach house often during the Spring, Fall, and off-season to relax and continuously upgrade the unit. We are looking forward to many years of fun and relaxation for our family and friends and do like sharing our condo with guests that have the same love of the beach that we do. Many of our guests are repeat guests which we really appreciate. These are generally guests that we get to know over the years through communication over the phone and emails. We offer repeat guests a discount over the regular rates as a token of our thanks for coming back. We especially enjoy seeing families with young children choose our condo as their annual beach vacation location. The Fall is popular with many of our repeat couples that enjoy both staying in the condo as well as the events and outdoor activities. Our goal is to get to the point where we stop listing the condo on the Internet and rent only to repeat guests and friends. While we are staying in Ocean City we really enjoy staying in the condo when the weather is cold or rainy and relaxing with books, puzzles, and movies. We love cooking and have fun trying out new recipes here to eat in. We often have friends and family staying with us, especially on the weekends, and love sharing the enjoyment of being at the beach and our condo. When we are here by ourselves, we enjoy spending time upgrading different parts of the condo which is shows as the pride of ownership.
Why the Owner Chose Oceana:
Our 2 bedroom / 2 bath slice of paradise had to be oceanfront. Our preference was to vacation in a quieter venue in Ocean City and off the boardwalk. We definitely wanted to stay away from the high-rises and crowds to the north of midtown and did not be too far away from driving to the boardwalk and other activities. We enjoy going to the boardwalk and the events and activities downtown but at the end of the day wanted to return to a quieter and calmer environment. Our beach house amenity requirements included an outdoor pool, elevator, central air conditioning, washer-dryer, and reserved parking. We were also looking for a condo that was in good to great shape and didn’t need a lot of renovation and repairs before being comfortable staying there. After narrowing down the candidate list to 6 to 8 units for sale, we contacted a local realtor and scheduled a day of house hunting. It seemed that each condo that we looked at had one or more issues or inconveniences that would require some compromises for our notion of our ideal condo. Then we entered the Oceana corner unit condo. As soon as we opened the door we all said Wow! Every room we went in, it was the same thing, Wow! The views, the Master Bedroom, the balcony, the kitchen, the layout – it was so amazing. This condo had electrically controlled storm shutters which, although wasn’t on our original list of requirements (manual shutters are a pain to open and close for us as well as for our guests), was a big selling point for us. It had all of the amenities that were on our list and we loved the location with some many restaurants and shops within walking distance. It was obvious that the previous owners had taken great care of their condo and we learned later that although it had been a rental for the previous two years, prior to that it was owner occupied which definitely reduces wear and tear on any condo. We put a contract on it that day and have been pleased with our decision to purchase this condo ever since
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Being a corner unit, you not only have windows looking over the ocean but windows looking North on the ocean and bay as well. The construction of the condo is solid concrete and does a great job of minimizing any noise from the neighbors. Being a corner unit has the advantage of having only one neighbor as opposed to one on each side of you. This condo is at the end of the hallway and on the opposite side of the elevator which eliminates the noise from people getting off of the elevator or walking past your doorway to go to their condo. Generally, the only people that would come down the hallway to where our condo's doorway are people that are coming specifically to this condo. We really like the open railing on the balcony which provides better viewing of the beach and ocean and also lets in more of the ocean breeze and sounds than condos with closed off balconies or glass/wall railings. The four chairs on the balcony are top-of-the-line and rarely found in rental units. We find that since we spend quite a bit of our time on the balcony, and our guests do as well, why not spend the money and get the chairs that we really like. The keyless combination entry door lock, where each guest creates their own code is something not found in many rentals. Getting locked out stinks. Carrying another set of keys around in your bag or down to the beach is a pain. Worrying about whether you locked the door as you are being seated for dinner is needless. You’re on vacation, relax! One less thing to deal with or worry about. Like to save money, love to cook? You will be hard pressed to find a rental with better cooking and food preparation cookware and utensils. Another benefit is the all-inclusive rental cost, no taxes, cleaning, check-in fees, nothing. Finally, if your preference is a building small enough to not block the sun on the beach in the afternoon or have to get to the beach before 8 AM to stake out your favorite spot but big enough to support a pool, Oceana awaits you.
