Oceanfront condo/Carousel

  • 4 of 5

I loved the condo. spacious,clean,& well maintained. Wonderfully decorated. Gorgeous view of the ocean an bay from the balconies. Owner Bob was easy to deal with. Answered all questions and handled any issues promptly. Lots of amenities on site for all ages.My family an I would defiantly go back. Two drawl backs to the Carousel Resort itself are the elevators are old and take a long time being there are only two of them that go to the 16th floor and the vendors that sell umbrellas and chairs in front of the resort on the beach. They are rude and they tell you that their customers pay for that section of the beach where they put the umbrellas at 830 am and you have to move to give them more room even if you have been there hours before anyone comes to use the umbrella.

Owner's Response: The speed of the elevators is an agenda item for the October, 2009 Owners’ meeting. The Beach vendor’s behavior has been addressed with the Town of Ocean City, MD by the Senior Management of the Carousel Resort & Hotel. The vendor is not an employee of the Carousel. The Town of Ocean City licenses such vendors and allows them to have a storage box on the beach which houses their rental chairs, umbrellas etc. The Town does not rent a specific portion of the beach to anyone for their personal or their customers’ exclusive use. The entire Ocean City beach is a public beach.

Wonderful ,Amazing words can't say enough.

  • 5 of 5

I have to say this is the nicest place I have rented in all Ocean City. Very well stocked even though it's the end of the season (impressed) Bob the owner was very helpful with any question I asked of him. From Check in Bell Service loved it and well worth it. Terry at check in was so welcoming and helpful. I have to say I haven't in 20 years returned to the same unit because for the money you pay for your vacation we could find something nicer for the same price .I can't say this about this unit well worth the money .You won't find a Cleaner maintained Unit in OC. And the view is breathtaking

Thanks Bob

Not only will I be returning but my sister will be I touch with you as well

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

My first time using VRBO, we were beyond happy with the condo and resort. The condo has the most perfect views of the bay and ocean front. Condo was immaculate and stocked with everything you need to feel like being at home. Bob the owner is just as pleasant as his condo. PERFECT....we will for sure be renting this unit again. The staff at the Carousel were wonderful as well.

Immaculate Condo and Great Resort!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Ocean City in 25 years and we could not have enjoyed it any more! This condo is immaculate, fully stocked and so nice and was exactly as described on here. We have rented condos in other beach towns and I have to say, this is the nicest we've ever stayed in. We were able to make breakfast and lunches in the condo every day, which was so convenient.

Bob is so thorough and provided us with all the information we needed (especially being unfamiliar with the area) and he goes above and beyond to answer any questions. Also, the staff at the Carousel were all nice and helpful and accommodating.

We spent every day at the beach and some time at the pool. The Carousel provides its guests with beach chairs for free, so that is a nice amenity. Also, the ice skating rink was pretty cool! (even though we didn't attempt the skating).

We spent every day on the beach and even saw dolphins swimming by off shore a couple of times! We did numerous other activities, took a speed boat tour, my husband golfed, Assateague Island and the wild horses, just to name a few.

I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone and would definitely rent it again when we go to Ocean City again. This was one of the nicest vacations we have ever taken and I highly recommend this condo!

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolutely gorgeous condo. It was beautifully decorated and very well maintained. All my interactions with Bob were pleasant and he answered all my questions very quickly, he is very nice to deal with.

My family consisted of 6 people (4 adults and 2 children) and we all fit comfortably. The master bedroom is great. The bed is comfy, there is a large closet with hangers provided, a dresser to put your things in and a private bathroom. There is a bedroom with 2 twin beds that also has a large closet and dresser and the other 2 adults slept on the sofa bed. It was a little lumpy but sofa beds usually are. The view of the ocean made up for it.

The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of dishes and cooking utensils. It was very nice to be able to have breakfast and cook dinners right in the condo without having to go out to eat everyday. We went out to eat a couple times, I highly recommend the restaurant Macky's. There is a Food Lion directly across from the building and it made grocery shopping very convenient.

The Carousel resort is also a very nice building. The lobby is packed with activities. There are 2 places to eat right in the lobby, there is an arcade that my children enjoyed, there is an indoor and outdoor swimming pool and the best part was the ice skating rink right in the middle of the lobby. My kids skated a couple times and the professional ice show every evening was spectacular. I noticed that a couple people mentioned the elevators, there was a pretty long wait sometimes and the elevator would come and be packed so you would have to wait for the next one but that didn't make our stay any less enjoyable.

My family and I really loved our vacation. I would highly recommend this condo and am looking forward to another stay next year.
