About Linda Carroll

We live in the Annapolis area and have been vacationing in Ocean City for over 50 years. We started renting this condo in 1972 for our vacations. When the condo became available for purchase in 1986 we jumped at the opportunity to buy it. We have remodeled the entire unit and have enjoyed working on it off season. The condo has a homey feel and is very comfortable.

Linda Carroll purchased this condo in 1986

Why Linda Carroll chose Eastern Shore

We've had the same return renters who have enjoyed our unit for over 15 seasons. Our condominium is a quiet family oriented building and a great place to enjoy a relaxing family vacation. Golfers love it too!

What makes this condo unique

Unit feels like home not a rental property. Beautiful open ocean view.

Beachgoer's Haven - Just Steps To The Beach - All The Comforts of Home
average rating of 5.0 based on 7 reviews

Our family loved this cozy condo steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time here! It is just as described -- steps to the beach and well equipped with just about everything you need. Since we had a newborn in tow, I spent a lot of time relaxing on the comfortable front porch with the baby, enjoying the view and ocean breeze, and helping with getting the toddler to and from the beach. We especially appreciated how clean and ready the condo was for us when we arrived. I really liked the kitchen, which looked recently improved. My kid was so excited to find the small stash of toddler and beach toys. The owners are great to work with - very responsive and helpful with questions. Two suggestions: improve the wifi if possible - it doesn't work in the rooms in the back. I think younger families would prefer better internet over cable (we would be willing to pay a little more for excellent internet). Also, an extra beach umbrella and chairs would be so useful. All in all - we would rent again!

Everything was perfect! The front porch is big and had a beautiful view of the Ocean! When we walked in the condo I was very impressed with how clean the place was. The kitchen was nicely stocked with everything you need and everything was very organized. For the price, location, and size of the condo I don't think we could have been more happy.

We stayed at Fins West and had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

The property was lovely! Adorable beach decor and very comfortable! We loved it! We were steps from the beach. Bus stop one street over was very convenient. Parking off street was nice. Would definitely return to Fins West!

Best Rental Ever

  • 5 of 5

Your condo provided all of the desired qualities of an exceptional Ocean City rental - clean, tastefully decorated, comfortable beds, appliances in working order, plenty of kitchen utensils, and located on a quiet street. We really enjoyed the porch for outdoor dining or just enjoying the wide view of the ocean and the ocean breezes. Each family member said your condo was the best one we have ever rented in Ocean City! Will definitely choose your condo again. Owners extremely friendly and helpful.

Perfect beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

Fins West was a very pleasant surprise. We certainly did not expect such a

well-appointed, comfortable condo. We loved all the personal touches and

the beautiful décor. With the beach just steps away and our wonderful

accommodations, together these combined for a perfect vacation.
