  • Our Experience

    "Our family stayed at Tamarindo this past week and we were very pleased with the townhome. It is beautiful and had everything we needed as a large family. The owners were nice to work with and the home was everything it was advertised to be (plus more). We usually stay on 89th street or farther up, but the location of Tamarindo was perfect for walking to many of the restaurants and bars that we like to visit while at the ocean. We had a wonderful week in a gorgeous townhome!"

  • Perfect Vacation Condo!

    "Just got home from our week at Beach Place North #13. We are a family of 6 and traveled with another family of 4. First of all, the condo itself is very comfortable and updated. The living room is small for a big group, but you can walk right out the back deck to the sand and with 2 other oceanfront decks, who wants to spend much time in the living room anyways? The sand area off the back deck is private to each condo and the younger kids loved playing there. The kitchen was updated with all the amenities. We were able to sit our entire group at the table for dinner. The outside shower was a plus when we were all getting ready at the same time in the evenings. There is covered parking for 2 cars. We both had large SUV's and had to park at a bit of an angle so that both cars could fit. The beds were all very comfortable, some with memory foam toppers. The AC was very efficient and each room had ceiling fans. The upper two decks have amazing views of the dunes and beach. You are literally just steps from the beach. It was so nice to be so close to the condo while at the beach. We did not have to pack up lunches...just came back in to eat. The beach is not crowded in front of the building. Waves are big! The lifeguards are great. They gathered our group together on day 1 and explained beach rules and gave us warnings about the rip current. He explained that he could tell when swimmers were caught in the rip current by the looks of the water. He told us how he would warn us of the rip current and how to safely get out of it. (actually happened many times, but quite easy to get out of). You are allowed to use boogie boards but not skim boards. We usually vacation in Maine, so to us, the water was warm! The location of the condo was great as well. We had a great, not crowded beach and could easily drive or take the bus to the boardwalk. We took the bus once and found that it was quicker to drive and plenty of parking. There are several great restaurants within walking distance for all meals. There are several shops within walking distance as well, including ice cream, surf shops, souvenir shops and liquor stores. Lastly, we ordered groceries online ahead of our arrival and chose a delivery time. We used grocerease4u.com. They were great. We were stuck in traffic at our delivery time and they were very accommodating. You can pay ahead of time with a credit card or COD. We will definitely return to this condo in the future!"

  • Great vacation spot

    "I would highly recommend this rental. The condo was spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated. Sunsets on the bay were beautiful, and the walk to the beach was easy. My son was playing in golf tournaments, and this location made it easy to get him to his golf courses, and right back to enjoy the beach!"

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.
