About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom on the Ocean

Beautifully decorated modern beach condo with a Ralph Lauren feel. Breathtaking views abound in this corner 2-bedroom condo. Enjoy the ocean breeze from the private deck as you watch the sun rise over the ocean. Our condo is a great place to recharge and relax with the peace of the Atlantic Ocean. It is well suited for a quiet and relaxing experience.

The private balcony is perfect for watching the sunrise or the dolphins playing in the ocean. Lounge in the comfortable chairs, enjoy your favorite beverage, and soak-in the sights and sounds of the ocean and beach. Lighting on the balcony allows you to continue to enjoy it after the sun goes down.

The large Master Bedroom has wall-to-wall windows overlooking the ocean and a sliding glass door entrance to the balcony. It is easy to get to sleep in the comfy King Sized bed with the sound of the surf and the cool ocean breeze. The second bedroom also has windows and offers a quiet retreat from the main area of the condo.

We are long time locals of Ocean City. A custom made book of our favorite spots (restaurants and more) awaits you upon arrival. Malia’s Cafe is just downstairs, locally owned, and features a great breakfast.

We are located on the northern quiet end of the boardwalk. A short train ride leads you to the fun activities of the boardwalk pier. The boardwalk features ocean front rides, restaurants, and endless activities for all ages.

The condo is updated annually with new features such as brand new appliances. Amenities inside the condo include a washer/dryer, dishwasher, stove/oven, microwave, 6 beach chairs, beach towels, bed linens, towels, TVs in each room, Wi-Fi, coffee maker, toaster, and all the kitchen basics to make a great dinner. All mattresses are encased in mattress protectors and have mattress pads, sheets, blankets, and comforters.

Just bring your flip flops and you’re all set.

Our condo is not a good place for a large party. The building has quiet hours from 10 pm – 8 am.

We are located on the 5th floor of the 6-story Ocean Hideaway building. Our minimum age is 30 years old for at least one of the renters staying in the unit.

No pets are allowed – no exceptions.

No smoking in the condo or on the balcony.

Your condo is just perfect and the decor is just lovely! I have been coming to the Maryland and Delaware beaches for 30+ years and this has made the top of my list! My sister and mother enjoyed it just the same.

Awesome, Beachfront, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many different units in this building over the years. This unit was so comfortable, both living room furniture and beds, even porch furniture were great quality.

The kitchen had every utensil, and pot and pan, you could need.

We loved having the heavy duty washer and dryer available.

There is a wonderful Keurig coffee maker, so bring your pods, or reusable pod cup to use your own coffe.

Because we are getting older, we always hope for grab bars in the tubs and at least one high toilet, just something to consider.

Of course, the views and sounds of the ocean blessed us all day.

We were lucky enough to have a full moon and saw Mars every night.

Good balcony, but that’s about it.

  • 2 of 5

Very conveniently located and with a great view, which is best enjoyed from the balcony. Beyond that, the condition of the condo is equivalent to a 2-3 star hotel. Issues included: a musty smell upon entering, stained carpets, dirty counters - the medicine cabinets in the bathroom had not been cleaned in a long time - leaky shower heads, a whole in the bathroom ceiling visible from shower. We also found trash in the trash can upon arrival. The place is a bit over cluttered with furniture, but that’s arguably a matter of taste. It is functional and at the right price I’m sure it would be OK. However, if you pay top dollar and are expecting the quality of a 4-5 star hotel, you’ll be very disappointed.

Another fantastic week at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We come to OCMD the same week every year and have never been disappointed. We also stay in the same building every year. This was our second time staying in Unit #509 and wish this could be our permanent vacation destination. Everything you could possibly need is provided and the accommodations are clean and beautiful. Location is awesome - close enough to get where you want to be with little effort and far away from the busy end of the boardwalk. Love the parking under the building and available bike rack. Only suggestion I can make is to add a tall outside shower to fully rinse off sand before entering the building. It could even be located in the covered parking area with an access code to limit use to building occupants. If we ever hit the lottery we would love to buy a unit like this!

Ocean City

Ocean City's historic boardwalk comes alive with ocean front amusement parks, bike riding, strolling, train, famous Thrasher's french fries, and endless food and shop options. Ocean City offers the best of Maryland's fresh seafood. We recommend Maryland blue crabs from Crabs-To-Go. The Ocean City Area is home to numerous high end golf courses. Nearby Assateague Island National Seashore, a 37 mile barrier island is home to wildlife including the famous wild ponies.
