Why The Owner chose Eastern Shore

I had two criteria when we decided to buy a place at the beach:

Oceanfront: Some buildings are oceanfront, but the unit and view of the ocean from the balcony are not. I wanted a unit that was DIRECT oceanfront. I did not have to look around the end of the balcony or move my balcony furniture sideways to to get a glimpse of the ocean. I was at the beach and I wanted to see and hear the ocean.

Pools: I wanted a building with indoor and outdoor pools AND the indoor pool had to be operational year round! The Plaza has two pools and the indoor pool is open until midnight and the indoor pool area also has a sauna and whirlpool. The pool is prepared for the summer and is not open after Martin Luther King BD and opens again by President's Holiday weekend.

What makes this condo unique

I enjoyed drinking coffee on the balcony and looking and listening to the ocean.

What could be better...a perfect ocean view from an absolutely wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful six days here! Beautifully decorated, comfortable furnishings, gorgeous view! Went down to Assateague and Chincoteague to see the ponies---actually got some great close-up photos! Also went up to shop at the outlet malls in Rehoboth. There are lots of great, close by restaurants to enjoy. People watching on the boardwalk was fun. And just enjoyed the rest of the time being at the beach. Joan, the owner, was great to deal with, easy to reach, pleasant to talk to. We'll definitely return if travels take us to Ocean City again!

Wonderful Views

  • 5 of 5

Great views of the Ocean and being on the 17th floor the Bay view is great. This location and height gives quiet and comfortable accommodation. Very very comfortable and great access to OC. Walking distance to Liquid Assets for a meal or just a libation. Shark on the Harbor was our favorite restaurant. Upscale food in a casual atomsphere. Uber bagels good am stop with excellent coffee

Our OC, MD Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family was a guest in the Goodman condo at the end of Sept. 2016. My father in his 90's accompanied us. He walks short distances. The condo was easy for him to get around. The step in tub served him well with his physical limitations. With the condo being beachfront, we bundled him up and he sat on the balcony and could enjoy the sunrise over the ocean with us:) We all thoroughly enjoyed the balcony. Also, the sunset over the bay is spectacular! We reserved a beach wheelchair and dad could enjoy the beach with us. We had a total of 5 adults in the condo during the week and found we had ample room. We all agreed that probably 6 adults max would be appropriate for the condo. For a mix of adults & children you could probably get away with 8 individuals. Should your plans include using the den area for sleeping be aware that this area of the condo is very noisy. We have visited OC many times and visited some restaurants with which we are familiar and do enjoy. There are also good recommendations provided by the owners. We did experience what we were told was an historic storm in the area at the end of of our stay. We don't control the weather so if you can't go on the beach you just find alternatives. There are games on site and we played some games in the condo. We would like to commend the security staff of the Plaza. Many times when we came down to exit, if there was a security staff member present, they would open the door for us to exit with the wheelchair. One we would like to mention by name is Franklin. He was extremely courteous and offered us suggestions on how to get dad on the beach. We would stay in this condo again. We were pleased with the response from the condo owners and the extra tidbits offered by Joan. Would recommend you have your own source for internet service. When we inquired about the rental, the sales rep did not even recommend we get it stating it is poor service. That is something the Plaza should look in to and fix. In today's world, everyone wants to be connected (and reliably)! Overall, a very nice stay.

We had a wonderful stay at the condo and the view was beautiful. The owner of the property was wonderful to work with giving us information on good restaurants and places to visit. I have rented many times in Ocean City and this was the most enjoyable visit we have had. We will definitely be looking forward to visiting again.

Great experience!
