YES! we have both a Keurig coffee maker and a regular coffee maker.

Also, there is a newly installed xfinity Wi-Fi hot spot at our condo building with Excellent Signal Strength that you can connect to. If you are a Comcast customer please bring your username and password; for guests that don’t have a Comcast account we will provide a courteous login.

You will be charged for facility passes with your on-line booking - price is $45 during the off-season and $85 during the high-season. Facility passes include passes for up to 6 family members to access clubhouse & pools (additional passes can be purchased by guest at $50/ea ); and 1 garage parking permit & 1 clam shell parking permit (parking for two vehicles). If guest wants to bring more than two vehicles they will have to park the extra vehicle(s) on 67th street at the entrance to the Island for FREE or purchase an additional parking pass for $70.

[4] Are linens and towels included?

Guests must bring their own linens and towels or arrange to rent them from our cleaning service for about $50 or Ocean City Bath and Linen.

[5] Does the condo include hand soap, laundry soap, paper towels and toilet paper?

Guests should be prepared to bring these items. Or purchase them upon arrival. There is a supermarket located at 94th street bay side.

[6] Does the condo have trash bags and dishwasher soap

Yes. The owner tries to provide an ample supply of trash bags and dishwasher soap.

[7] Does the condo include beach chairs?

No. But Sunset Island does offer beach chairs that guests can used on the private bay beach at the clubhouse.

[8] How far are the pools and club house from the condo.

Just out the door and around the corner - a quick 3 minute walk to the South-East corner of the Island!

[9] How far is the Ocean City beach from the condo and is it free?

The actual ocean beach is a short walk of about a 1/4 mile and yes it's FREE and does not requires passes or beach tags.

If visiting the ocean; I suggest after crossing coastal hwy at 67th you walk south one block and enter beach off 66th street for it's way less crowded at this location. Also if you don't have a beach wheelie; you can get one cheap at Super Fresh bay side around 90th street for about $25; it will sure make toting your gear to the beach much easier!

Also, Sunset Island has a deal with the owner of the beach side parking lot on 67th street for discount daily & weekly parking passes; so if you prefer to drive over with all of your beach gear this may be the way to go. Ask about it at check in.

[10] Does the condo include daily maid service?

No. But we can give you the number to our cleaning service and a special cleaning schedule can be arranged for an additional expense.

[11] Where is the nearest market to pickup supplies?

Right outside the condo is the Island market located under the clock tower but their prices may seem high; we recommend walking over to the 64th street market which will have everything you need at a reasonable price. Of course there is always the Super Fresh market at 94th street bay side - just a few minute drive.

[12] Where is the best place to park when visiting the boardwalk?

Don't weave in and out of all the side streets! That's way too stressful! The best and easiest way to visit the boardwalk is to take coastal highway all the way to the end, say LEFT and just before it LOOPs around you can turn RIGHT and swing into the OC municipal parking lot; You'll park at the end of the boardwalk and will not have to fight for a parking spot!

[13] How many TVs do you have?

There are a total of 3 TVs in the condo; a plasma TV in the living room with a DVD player; an LCD TV in the master bedroom with a DVD player; and a small an LED TV in the 2nd adult bedroom. All TV's are connected to Comcast Cable TV service including plenty of kid’s channels such as 2 Disney channels, Nickelodeon, Sprout, and Cartoon Network. The kid’s bedroom does not have a TV.

[14] Can you recommend some restaurants?

The Landing on Sunset Island at the club house - great place to watch the sunset - band every night!

Dead Freddies Island Grill (w/ indoor play ship) at 64th street bay side

About Dennis Murphy

The owner’s of the condo have two lovely little boys age 3 and 5. We fell in love with Sunset Island since it is so family oriented and our kids just have a blast!

Dennis Murphy purchased this condo in 2008

Why Dennis Murphy chose Sunset Island

We wanted something easy for us since we have two little boys. We found Sunset Island perfect! Our little ones can play and have fun on the Island between the interactive fountain; swimming; playing in the sand on the bay beach; crabbing; fishing; ect; and when nap time hits, it's just a 1 minute walk back to the condo to get the kids in bed. Having little kids we needed a vacation spot that actually gave us a vacation!

What makes this condo unique

We like the fact that we have baby proofed the entire condo; all of the kitchen drawers have latches; ect; so when we bring the kids in we don’t have to worry about stuff getting pulled out of the cabinets. Also, we have all it kid and baby friendly; it includes a baby crib; baby tub; booster seat; pack-n-play; and potty - and if you don't need these items, they store easy in the kids room closet out of site and out of the way.

Finally, there is plenty to do on the Island to keep the kids entertained all day; or it’s just a quick walk to the ocean. We also like going to North Side Park bay side 120th street; they have such an amazing large free kids play ground. And finally, we often visit the De Lazy Lizard at 1st and Bay, since they offer a huge free play area for the kids and they have reasonable food prices. And not to forget the kids love the Dough Roller Pizza! They are located just a block or two from the Island.

Wonderful Condo and Fantastic Owner!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo, perfect location, and an owner that goes above and beyond. What more could you ask for? Dennis (the condo owner) had great communication with us and made sure everything was perfect for our stay. He sends an information packet that answers any questions you may have and makes your stay flow smoothly. He even arranged for linen service with his cleaning lady (who also did a great job for an ultra-cheap price...I'd highly recommend using her for linens). The condo is nicely furnished, clean, and shows a real pride of ownership. Great location near the pond allows you to sleep to the wonderful sound of the fountain. Condo is close to everything, with a nice shopping center, gym, and other attractions all within walking distance. Took us less than five minutes to walk to the ocean. If you need a wonderful place to stay, this condo is the place for you.

Owner's Response: Thank you Mark for staying our condo for your Memorial Day Holiday vacation. Yes more and more guests are starting to rent their linens from our cleaning service which is about $50 for everything where the local OC linen rental charges for every piece and the price can get out of hand quick. We love the location of our condo with our front balcony having full southern exposure and at night you can often see fireworks from Secrets from our Balcony. We hope to rent to you again real soon! Dennis & Diana.

Great place to stay at Sunset Island.

  • 5 of 5

We’ve stayed at Sunset Island for the past three years while on vacation at Ocean City. This unit was the nicest and by far the cleanest unit we have rented. I was intrigued by reading all the reviews that were complimentary of this unit, which is why we wanted to stay there. Now our search is over. We will definitely be staying here again next year. When we walked in it not only looked clean but smelled so clean. Dennis was a pleasure to work with in renting the unit and answering questions promptly. Also love the fact that we had a door code rather than a key to lose at the beach. Overall we were very pleased. It’s nicely decorated and served all of our needs. It’s location is also very nice because the pond and fountain are by the balcony side which is very peaceful and relaxing. You can sit on the balcony without seeing your neighbors or smelling their smoke. It’s just nice. Sunset island of course is a beautiful community and not far from the beach but far enough you don’t feel entrapped by tourists. Loved our week at Ocean City.

Owner's Response: Hey Tammy it was a pleasure renting to your family. And thank you for ordering a linen and bath towel package from our cleaning service - a complete turn-key service with your fresh linens and bath towels waiting in the condo when you arrive - and you can't beat the price at just $50! Thank you so much for your kind review and your prompt re-booking for your 2019 vacation. Wow! This is a first for us having a guest upon check-out re-book their next year's vacation on the spot! We will be happy to have you return and continue to build your family vacation memories! Dennis & Diana

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo! It has everything you need! Wonderful amenities, very clean and a great location. It's walking distance to some fantastic restaurants (this last trip we discovered Longboard Cafe - fabulous!) , shopping, mini golf and the beach. But when you enter Sunset Island, it's like you're in a quaint Charleston neighborhood. This condo has a balcony that looks out on a little lake with a fountain. It's perfect for a couple get away or more than enough room for a family vacation. We have rented from this owner several times and he is always very accommodating. If you want a the perfect condo in OC, this is your place!

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

The condo was spotless and Sunset offered a variety of onsite activities. My son enjoyed the pool and beach. The onsite restaurant had an extensive menue with reasonable prices. I look forward to returning to the property in 2018.

Owner's Response: Mike it was a pleasure renting to your family for the last week of August. Yes the Landing restaurant on the Island at the club house has amazing food. And during the summer they have live music every night until 10PM. It's a great place to watch the Sunset after a long relaxing day on the beach! We hope to rent to your family again real soon!
