Recent Ocean City property reviews

  • Very satisfied

    "This was the first vacation in years that my family and I have had and we were not at all dissappointed. The house had plenty of space for my family of 8. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes and appliances to make cooking in very convienient. The house was very close to the beach which made it very nice. There is a laundry room which also was a plus. The bedrooms were roomy and had plenty of space with dressers and closets. The screened porch was nice for relaxing in the evening. There was however only one television in the house and there was no internet, which wasnt a big deal but would have made it all the better. None the less my family and I loved our stay so much we did not want to leave. We will be booking this house for next year."

  • Great condo location for family vacation

    "This was my first time renting privately from VRBO. Had always used Caldwell Banker. Stephen could not have made it any easier. Plus, we did not have to wait until 3:00 or waste time getting in and out of the rental agency. This condo had more than enough room for the six of us. Nicely decorated and Stephen provides a large amount of cleaning supplies, trash bags, laundry detergent, etc. We spent several evenings playing cards and dominoes. The Dining table was the perfect size. I have a teenage daughter and the kids bedroom was more than large enough for her and our cousin. For families with young children, their bedroom is in a great location for earlier bedtimes. The bathrooms were huge and the half bath came in handy with 6 people. Would highly recommend this condo."

  • Just what we needed

    "I don't know which was better, the condo itself or it's amazing location. We had just the perfect vacation weekend. The pictures don't come close to giving it justice, this place is WAY better than advertised."

  • Clean and wonderful owner!

    "Clean condo that is ocean facing. View from the balcony is spectacular. The ocean and beach are visible as well as the Golden Sands pool below. The below deck is not visible from this unit. The furniture is decent and the appliances are functional but on the older side. Bathrooms are clean but also on the older side. The owner is great to work with, which made it a great experience. You receive your keys in the mail and that helps reduce time at check-in. Additionally, for check-out, the owner provides a self-addressed and stamped envelope, so it is very easy to send everything back. We received our deposit just a few days later. Finally, the parking spot associated with this unit is also incredible...it is in the garage and right across from the entrance into the Golden Sands. All in all, we would recommend this unit. "

Ocean City Travel Tips

The small Maryland town of Ocean City, with a population of only 7,000, is really not so small: Summer weekends here can see more than 300,000 visitors! But this beautiful beach city is an excellent coastal escape for year-round travel.

Ocean City extends a little more than 9 miles from the Delaware state line to the southern inlet, and here, you'll find plenty to do to please everyone you've traveled with. The boardwalk is a star attraction in this town and features shopping and entertainment as well as amusement parks for those thrill seekers. If you love history, head downtown to see the Victorian-style houses and other old buildings lining the streets.

The town also has a long history of fishing and considers itself the "White Marlin Capital of the World." During the warm months, head to the shore or out on a boat with your fishing pole in hopes on returning with a great catch - and the evening's dinner.

While summer is normally when most people visit Ocean City, the town is delightful year-round. It experiences mild winters, so if you're hoping to escape to frigid weather of your home locale, head to Ocean City for a calmer climate and exciting activities.

Things to Do in Ocean City

- Ocean City Boardwalk: A trip to Ocean City definitely needs to include a visit to the famous Ocean City Boardwalk, which dates back to 1902. It's considered one of the best in the country and offers something for everyone. There's plenty of opportunities for family fun at the beach and amusement parks, 17 golf courses to practice your swing, spots for fishing and more. Peruse the various shops and refuel with a quick meal at one of the many eateries.

- Life-Saving Station Museum: Step back in time at the Life-Saving Station Museum to learn about the saving missions at Ocean City through time or look up your family history in the genealogy section. The museum displays interesting exhibits on storms, sea life and life-saving, including beach vacation artifacts, mermaids, shipwreck finds, more than 300 sand samples from all over the world and doll houses depicting local hotels and businesses. You can also see tanks housing local marine life. Some of the best exhibits include "The Boardwalk of Yesterday," "Davy Jones' Locker?" and "Surf's Up!"

- Northside Park: Spend some time outdoors and get a breath of fresh air at Northside Park. With 58 acres, there's plenty of space to start a pick-up game of ball on one of the many fields, try for a catch at the fishing lagoon, play with the kids on the playground or stroll around the walking paths. Pack a delicious picnic lunch and relax under the sun.

- Jolly Roger Amusement Park: For some serious family fun, head to Jolly Roger Amusement Park at the pier or uptown, which features two 18-hole mini-golf courses, Splash Mountain and 10 go-kart tracks. Both parks provide a variety of rides and attractions for all adventure lovers.

- Ocean City Parasail: Enjoy a true bird's eye view of Ocean City with a parasailing adventure from Ocean City Parasail. Up to three people at a time can take in the skyline as you float along the clouds. Choose the height you want to soar to and decide if you want a mild or wild ride. You'll head out on a boat to prepare then you can take to the sky for an experience unlike any other. It will certainly be a memory you'll treasure forever!

- Calvin B. Taylor House Museum: Experience a stunning example of local architecture at the Calvin B. Taylor House Museum, a restored early 19th century home located in the National Register Historic District. The house has been furnished as a museum, with the west wing turned into a gallery displaying local memorabilia. It's a budget-friendly outing, with only a suggested donation of $2 per adult.

Dining

- Coconuts Beach Bar & Grill: If you're looking for a fresh seafood feast, head to Coconuts Beach Bar & Grill. Dine on favorites like mahi mahi, tuna and crab cakes, or burgers, chicken and wraps. Enjoy the laid-back atmosphere as you take in the natural scenery. They often have live entertainment, so you can even dance the night away.

- General's Kitchen: Start your day off right with a filling, delicious meal in a fun atmosphere. Whether you love omelets, pancakes or anything in between, the meals here are sure to please. There's even a children's menu for the younger ones.

Events

SunFest is an annual four-day event in mid-September that is meant to bring the summer season to a close in style and welcome the fall season. Head to the Ocean City Inlet at the end of Atlantic Avenue on the boardwalk for plenty of family-friendly fun, including music, food and crafts. Grab tickets to the big-name headline shows before they sell out!

On the flip side, celebrate the winter season with Ocean City’s annual Winter Fest of Lights, held every year from mid-November to January 1. Hop on the Winter Fest Express to pass by fabulous light displays made from hundreds of lights, representing things like Santa’s Workshop, and keep your eyes open for the 50-foot tall Christmas tree. This festival is so popular that it even has its own pavilion - the Winter Fest Pavilion, where you can stop by to enjoy hot chocolate, buy homemade gifts and take photos with Santa.
