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.
Forget the snow and cold and get ready for sun, fun and relaxation! Book your vacation getaway for the beach this Spring and Summer now. This is the time of the year to get a jump on the Springtime rush and reserve prime weeks in the Summer or that mini-week in the Spring. Reservations come quickly this time of year, so make sure you get the time you want! Spring reservations are a great way to ditch the Wintertime blues and enjoy many activities and events at Ocean City. With Springfest, Pork in the Park, Cruisin OC, Raven's parade, and Crab Soup Cook-offs, there are many reasons to make Ocean City a Springtime destination.
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. Just steps away from the lobby - 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 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 condo is comfortably equipped with central AC, premium HD cable, tons of movies, Playstations, washer-dryer, dishwasher, Google Home and free Wi-Fi. Leave your linens, beach towels, chairs and umbrellas and toys at home. The condo has 2 reserved parking spaces and has a roomy outdoor pool.
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 Tempur-Pedic (2014) bed with the sound of the surf and the cool ocean breeze. Talk to Google Home or enjoy your favorite show or movie with the flat screen swivel mounted TV connected to a High Definition (HD) cable box (more than 100 channels) and a Blu-Ray player (connected to the Internet for Netflix and Pandora). Extra plush wall-to-wall carpeting was installed in 2015. A table and a floor fan are in the room.
The Master Bath is connected to the bedroom through a large walk-through closet which can be used as a changing room as well. The closet includes a folding breakfast (laptop) tray, hamper, hooks, hangers, and extra pillows. There are linens and towels at the condo that can be used by our Guests with the condition they they are washed and put back prior to check-out.
The 2nd bedroom has two double beds. The window overlooks the beach and the bay can be seen as well. The room has new plush carpeting (2015) and a 42' HDTV LCD TV with cable, a Blu-ray player (Internet connected for Netflix and Pandora), and a Play Station 2 (exactly the same as the one in the living room except with no Internet connection). The six foot long closet contains a luggage rack, extra blankets, a fan, extra pillow, and video games and controllers.
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 with a bench 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 are two oversized assigned parking space for the condo. The spaces are large enough to accommodate 4 mid-size vehicles. There is also on-street parking on a first come, first serve basis. During the off-season, parking is open. There is a bike rack next to the outdoor shower.
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.
This is an owner-maintained condo and it shows. All appliances are new, within the last 6 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 by our guests.
There are plenty of places to go within walking distance from the condo. Across the street on the bayside is Ropewalk and Hooked, two of the finer seafood restaurants in Ocean City. In the morning, you can walk across the street and treat yourself to goodies at the Fractured Prune, Yummy Sweet Shop, or the Dunkin Donuts. Big Mama's is open to 3 AM. 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, beer and wine store, and a gas station.
Ocean City offers entertainment and fun for a wide range of ages and interests. There are several attractions close to the condo, such as mini-golf and a laser tag. Anything in town not within walking distance is easily accessible by the loop bus. Bus service for the boardwalk runs every 10 minutes (peak Summer hours) and the stop is directly across the street from the condo. A trip to the boardwalk will take approximately 10 minutes by car and 20 minutes by bus. When at the boardwalk, you’ll see two amusement parks, dozens of restaurants, mini-golf courses, the Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum and morning biking. If you are looking for nightlife, Seacrets has consistently been named one of the best clubs in the county and is open day and night. Calmer attractions include rentable boat rides and water tours of areas around Ocean City. Farther away from the condo, but accessible by car, are 2 outlet malls; 1 in Ocean City and 1 in Delaware. The Ocean City area boast over 30 top-notch golf courses.
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 Blu-Ray player is connected to the Internet which in addition to playing both Blu-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.
There are over 140 DVDs to watch including many kid-friendly movies. Our PS2 game collection is has 20 games (and growing). There are over 50 books to read and lots of board games in the condo. Many of our guests really appreciate the free wireless available in the condo.
A great way to save money while at the beach is by cooking some of your 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 has a great selection of pots & 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.
Totally beachfront, outdoor pool, assigned parking, central A/C, cable and Internet, washer/dryer, fully stocked kitchen, and king size bed with Tempur-Pedic mattress in the huge master bedroom with views of the beach on three sides are a few of the reasons that make this condo the best place to be for enjoying the beach

We are a family of four with a young adult son and 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 30 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 our 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 says a lot about its value. 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 to continuously improve it for our guests.
Owner purchased this Condo in 2009
Why Owner chose Ocean City
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
What makes this Condo unique
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.

Comfortable Condo with Great View!
Had a very relaxing few days away! Weather didn't fully co-operate, but it didn't stop us from bundling up and walking the beach every day. Condo was comfortable and clean. Owners were wonderful to work with! Would highly recommend!!
The Condo was clean & spacious with an amazing view of the Ocean !!!
I decided to treat my wife to a beach getaway. I chose this particular condo for its centralized location. We stayed five nights. 3/26 thru 3/31 of this year (2018)
I would highly recommend this condo, as dealing with the owners was a pleasure !
Can't wait to do it again!!!
Had a wonderful 5 days at your Beach Retreat. Loved the deck overlooking the beach and ocean.
Although the weather wasn't tbe best, we had a great time. We come to OC several times a year and this condo gave us all (4 artists) everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Plenty of surface room to paint, close proximity to our classes, lovely views of the beach and ocean for inspiration. When not painting, or enjoying the views we had the additional bonus of TVs in each room so all could watch their favorite shows. We'll definitely be back.
Great Condo with a wonderful view!!
This was our 2nd time at Dave & Teresa's condo. It is wonderful! The kitchen has everything you need, the beds are so comfy, and the views are awesome!! Definitely going back again next year!
A Wonderful Oceanfront Get-Away
We have just returned from our 7th stay in 6 years at this oceanfront beach retreat. That by itself tells you how much we enjoy this home away from home. Let me share (probably repeating myself some from previous years) the highlights that make this condo such a great get-away.
From the very minute you open the door you are greeted with the spectacular ocean view down the hall and out the balcony. You will likely head out on to the balcony and enjoy the view, breeze and ocean sounds immediately.
The condo itself is furnished perfectly for a beach stay. The large comfortable chairs on the deck remain my favorite but all the furnishings are functional and comfortable.
The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, utensils and it also provides ample counter space and room to eat and work. The dining room table is large and provides plenty of space and chairs for crab feasts and family board games afterwards.
The living room and master bedroom offer spectacular views of the ocean and wherever you go in the condo you are treated to the relaxing sounds of the Atlantic's waves. And there's still nothing better than watching the sun come up over the ocean without even getting out of bed!
This condo is on the north end of the hallway which puts it well away from the elevator and nobody walks past your condo door for any reason so it's nice and quiet. The north end means that the second bedroom has a large window with a panoramic view of OC. The second window in the master also offers the same view. All these windows and doors
provide fantastic light and enable wonderful ocean breezes.
This condo is located in a great section of Ocean City. It's away from the hustle-bustle of downtown and not part of the high-rise crowding up north. Yet, the condo has easy access to everything.
Easily within walking distance are Liquid Assets and Hooked restaurants which offer some of the best food in OC. Ropewalk across the street offers really good food, a great view and a really cool atmosphere for a beverage or three. The fractured prune donut shop is a short walk.
The owners are fantastic hosts too. They are both professional and easy to deal with. Their condo guide and readiness to answer emails quickly covers off any questions that might come up during your stay.
Best vacation !
Fantastic condo! Everything is perfect. Nice accommodations plus the view is priceless!
The boardwalk, one of the main attractions in Ocean City, is approximately 10 minutes by car. Bus service is available for $1 per trip or $3 for unlimited use all day. 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 20 minutes by bus. In the morning, until 11 AM, bikes can be rented for riding on the boardwalk. From 11 AM to midnight, the Boardwalk Tram runs up and down the length of the boardwalk (approx. 3 miles). This is a great way to scope out your next lunch or dinner stop or just people watch. You can board or get off the Tram anywhere along the boardwalk. While you are on the boardwalk, don't miss the attractions including Ripley's Believe It or Not museum, Thrasher's Boardwalk Fries, Trimper's Rides, Fisher's Popcorn, Lifesaving Museum, Dolle's Salt Water Taffy, Trimper's Haunted House, Wokenfuss Candies, the Pier, Dayton's Famous Fried Chicken, the Kite Loft, Dumser's Ice Cream, Ocean Gallery, and of course all of the arcades. Don’t miss the Firemen's Memorial which includes a piece of steel beam from the World Trade Center. ____________________________________________________________________________ There are plenty of family outings available while in OC with no less than 20 mini-golf courses, including two indoors courses in Ocean City. There are three amusement parks including Jolly Roger's Amusement Park which includes the waterpark Splash Mountain, bumper cars and bumper boats as well as more than 10 Go-Kart courses and Laser tag. If the weather is rainy there are two movie complexes, five museums, indoor ice skating, and Laser Tag. The Duckaneer, a pirate themed cruise boat, is a big hit in our family. Assateague Adventues boat tours take you see the wild ponies and let you get out of the boat on the island. The OC Rocket and Sea Rocket are speedboats for groups that travel up and down the along OC beaches. The Ocean Bowl Skate Park is popular with teens. ____________________________________________________________________________ Fishing is big and Ocean City has it all. Known as the White Marlin Capital, there are many charters that are available year-round. In addition to White Marlin, sharks, blues, and tuna are popular big-game catches. Group boats for half days are available for less cost and smaller fish. Flounder fishing boats in the bay are popular as well. Also popular is the pier fishing (perfect for novices and little ones with 2 locations downtown for renting rods, tackle, and bait) as well as surf fishing. The little ones love crabbing in the bay with just a piece of chicken on a string. There are lots of boating rental options such as Jetskiing, sailing, kayaking, canoeing, speedboat, and pontoon boat rentals. Parasailing, skydiving, scuba diving, and surfing is available for the adventurous crowd. ______________________________________________________________________________ If outlet shopping is your bag, you're in luck! There is an outlet mall just across the bridge on RT 50 and there are a large number of outlet malls just north on Coastal Highway in Rehoboth Beach in Delaware where there is no sales tax. If you are a golfer, the OC area has more than 20 courses within a 20 minute drive. If you enjoy the thrill of competition, there is a paintball course waiting for you. Nightime activities include many clubs, such as Seacrets which is ranked in the top 10 nightclubs in the US. Ocean Downs in Berlin has live horse racing and is home to The Casino. Waves of Laughter Comedy Club in the Princess Royale is fun. Ocean City has many events at the convention center, the beach downtown, Northside Park, and elsewhere. Popular events throughout the season include Movies on the beach, Sundaes in the Park, Laser Light shows on the beach, Family Olympics, and Horse & Carriage Rides. Annual events include Springfest, Sunfest, Cruisin' OC, the Air Show, St Patrick's Day Parade, Pork in the Park, and the Dew Tour. ____________________________________________________________________________ Daytrips could include Assateague Island National Seashore where you can drive through the park, visit the Nature Center, and see the wild horses. Further South is Chincoteague and the Tom's Cove Visitor Center. Just West of OC is the historic town of Berlin, setting for the Runaway Bride movie with Julia Roberts. Berlin has many historic shops and homes and hosts the annual Jazz and Blues Bash and is home to the Burley Oak Brewery with tours every Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Climb the restored World War II observation tower at Cape Henlopen State Park. Ocean City has hundreds of restaurants to choose from. Then there are the crab houses. Everyone has their favorite; we include our favorite restaurants in the Guest Handbook that we send to guests. Our suggestion is that unless you plan to pick at crabs for more than 2 hours, your best bet is to get large crabs by the dozen.
