About John VanWie

Born and raised in Maryland suburb of Washington, DC, Renee and John with their three children, Alexander, Dominic and Maria, currently live on Kent Island just east over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

John VanWie purchased this condo in 1994

Why John VanWie chose Ocean City

John has been vacationing in Ocean City for over 50 years with his family and during high school stayed many times with friends at the Sea Watch. When the property became available in 1994 his wife and him decided to become owners in this wonderful year-round resort area.

What makes this condo unique

The oceanfront features combined with the proximity of activity and the many amenities featured in the complex is what made us fall in love with the Sea Watch. Great for families the complex activities include indoor/outdoor & toddler pools, saunas, game room, playground, volleyball, basketball, tennis, and new this year a Movie Theater onsite! Carryout and sundry stores also adorn the premises and grocery one block away. Popular Green Turtle across the street and many options for both delivery and fine dining. We are sure your stay will be most enjoyable. Contact us today for the many beachfront memories!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had the opportunity to Stay at Sea Watch #1005 for two weeks this summer. It was awesome! The property amenities had plenty to keep the children active allowing us to get some much needed R&R. The unit was adorned with ceramic tile and new carpet this year. Owner was great to work with & very accessible. We had an issue (garbage disposal in kitchen) & within hours a maintenance worker arrived to correct. It is nice to stay in a great unit on the ocean and know that issues are addresses timely when vacationing. We plan on returning 2014 & hope the unit is available. Highly Recommend this unit as a family friendly vacation spot close to home (Northern VA).

Enjoyed the stay. Thank you for having a beach cart, chairs, boogie boards at the ready if needed. That was nice. John was available to answer any questions. Would recommend and would stay again.

Clean, comfortable, and convenient!

  • 4 of 5

This 10th floor unit was clean and spacious. Very comfortable and furnished nicely. The condo offers easy acces to the beach and the other amenities helped us survive with our two toddlers! It was easy to run back to the building from the beach for the bathroom. When the kids needed a change of scenery we went to the outdoor pool or the kiddie pool. Both were clean and the kids loved it! The playground was another great place to keep the kids busy.There are kid friendly restaurants a short drive away - Ropewalk and Fishtales both have outside playgrounds. And there is a 24 hour pharmacy and grocery store across the street.Would absolutely recommend this place for young families!

Solid Rental Great View

  • 4 of 5

The property was well maintained and had all the expected amenities. The place was clean and had no defects. It had a fantastic view of the ocean and we could see each other on the beach. I took my elderly parents my wife and our 11 year old. It had a queen , double and 2 twins. It is hard to see in the photos but they were there. You need to bring your own linens or rent. There is a charge for parking for the week in the garage. Directly across the street is Gold Coast Mall and one block to the right is a food lion.

The only drawback was the furniture. If you have more then like 6 not sure where everyone would sit... There was a couch and 3 chairs.

There was also a dinning room table with 4 chairs but not lounging type chairs

Good unit and would rent again

Great Place, Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

This condo at SeaWatch as perfect! The complex literally had it all. Great place to take a family. Steps to the ocean. Multiple pools. Movie theater. Basketball court. Ice cream. Plenty of elevators and parking. The security team was wonderful, and always made us feel safe. Not that the area appeared unsafe in any way, but it was nice to know that we someone was looking out for us. The unit was perfect. We had 10 people and never felt like we were crowded. Beds were comfortable. Space was clean. We didn't have one single problem with anything not working or broken. The owner is a wonderful person. I truly felt like I was renting from a friend. He is extremely accommodating. Was available for any questions we had. He left the keys and pool tags exactly where he said they would be. We never had any problems at all, but I believe that if we did have something , he would have done everything in his power to get it fixed. If we ever return to Ocean City, we will certainly stay in the complex and attempt to rent from the same owner.

During our stay, we watched fireworks at Northside park which is a little over a mile away. We could actually see them from our balcony. It was less than a 10 minute drive to the Jolly Roger Amusement and Water Park. In the same area as Jolly Roger is the boardwalk are 2 restaurants we really enjoyed. One is a seafood place called Jonah and the Whale and the other was Fish Tales, which is completely kid-centric where you actually eat with your toes in the sand. We also took a 20 minute trip to Assateague State Park where wild horses and deer roam among the dunes. Heading north only a couple of miles from Sea Watch you can also go shopping at the shops in Delaware, where there are no state or local sales taxes.

Overall, the place was amazing. We had a great time thanks to John and his Sea Watch condo.

Quick Get Away

  • 4 of 5

The Sea Watch has great amenities with being ocean front, playground, basketball & volley ball courts and both indoor and outdoor pools. It is a great location. The owner is great to work with and accommodating, especially since we were coming mid week. I do think the unit needs updating but it was fine for the short stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words Angie. We are gradually updating unit as you saw new carpert & ceramic tile this season. The kitchen and master bath are next over winter 2014 as well as the balcony conversion. In addition to the family room and master bedroom, TV's will be added to the den and second bedroom. New pictures will be added to site as updates are completed. Thank you everyone for a wonderful summer!
