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 Ocean City

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.

Another great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time renting this terrific condo. We love being so close to the beach -- this was imperative for us with little boys who need to run back and forth for naps, snacks, bathroom breaks, etc. There are very nice upgrades/renovations to the bathroom and the building exterior this year, and high speed internet is excellent! We also ventured out more often this time and appreciated being within short drives to DE and downtown OC . As usual, the owners were very responsive, attentive, and helpful with questions. Would definitely rent again, and recommend to friends!

A beautiful place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

We've been working with HomeAway for several years now and once again they did not disappoint us. The owners of the condo have created a beautiful, comfortable space to vacation in. We prefer a beach cottage when we vacation, but in Ocean City, they are hard to find if not impossible. This is as close as you will get to that beach cottage "feel". It is beautifully decorated with lots of extra touches. It feels homey and comfortable. From the beach art work in the interior to the homemade tables on the deck, this place is first class. The place across the street is quite the eyesore, but a simple turn to the right gives you a nice view of the ocean which is just steps away. We loved sitting out on the deck for meals, and morning coffee, I don't think we used the inside table even once. We had everything we needed in the kitchen aside from some spices. The beds were comfortable, the living area had a great set up, and although the Weber grill out back has seen better days, and it would be a lot more convenient to cook on gas (which in other states we always seem to be able to do), you will find that very few places in Ocean City have a grill of any kind. For me, to go on vacation and not cook up steaks, chicken and other things on the grill, just doesn't seem like vacation. So it was worth having to get some charcoal, have a beer while the coals got hot, and be able to grill up some dinners. You could hardly improve on this place, and the few minor things that I'm choosing to let the wonderful owners know about, are not even worth mentioning here. We would come back in a heartbeat, but for next year, we've got a few other places to check out, but we will be back. Thank you to the Carrolls for sharing your summer home, we loved it.

Great week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

I loved this condo. It was clean ,well decorated and had plenty of necessities, chairs, kitchen supplies and other amenities. A great porch with views of the ocean and gentle breezes. With easy access to the beach it made the multiple trips back and forth with children perfect !

Best Accommodations Ever!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the perfect family vacation place, then this is for you! Beachgoer's Haven was truly a haven for our family. It was by far the cleanest place we have ever stayed in, just steps from the lifeguarded beach and had plenty of room for all of us. The ocean view porch is a highlight. Our family spent many hours relaxing, knitting and playing games within the comfort of the ocean breeze. An absolutely delightful place to stay in a perfect location. Absolutely the BEST!

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!

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed our condo and had a great vacation!. We have enhanced the internet signal and now have strong internet coverage from the porch to the back bedrooms. Hope to see you again next year.
