About Chad Dye

I have lived in Maryland my entire life. I am a big Ravens and Orioles fan. I enjoy working out, playing soccer and relaxing on the beach in my spare time. After years of spending many weekends and weeks vacationing in OC with friends/family, I decided that it was time to buy a place of my own so that I can call Ocean City, MD my home away from home.

Chad Dye purchased this condo in 2014

Why Chad Dye chose Ocean City

I spent many weekends searching for a beach home and none seemed to be a perfect fit for me. Before Summer 2014 started, I had almost completely given up until I saw a listing that intrigued me very much due to it being a great location, ocean front, walk off balcony into beach, and 2 bed/2 bath which was what I had set my hopes on for a beach condo. I was ecstatic to be able to spend many summer nights in this Diamond Beach unit. I love spending time at the beach and now I have the perfect excuse to take time out of my busy schedule to head down to OC. There is no better way to spend the summer! If you are looking for a place to spend your family vacation summer after summer, give this place a try and you won't be disappointed.

What makes this condo unique

Walk off the first floor balcony right onto the beach; family oriented atmosphere; friendly owners/neighbors; great location so much that my car often stays parked the duration of my stay; falling asleep to the sound/smell of the ocean when the windows are open; views from the balcony

Beautiful oceanfront condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Chad's condo for the weekend in late October while in town for the Seaside 10 race. The location is's a first floor walk out condo where you can go straight out onto the beach. The condo itself has been completely renovated (to include both bathrooms and the kitchen). It's rare to find a place to stay in Ocean City that doesn't scream 1980s! Anyways, if you're looking for a cozy, modern beach getaway this is your place.

Such a great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a lovely vacation and this rental really added to it. It was very clean, in a great location with accessible parking, and the first level beach access was huge. We didn't pack much food for the beach, but ran back and forth when hungry. Chad, the owner was very kind and his response rate was great as well. We would stay here again!

Outstanding location and beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

We came in for a dance comp and were looking for a place to be on the beach and across from the convention center so we would be able to come and go as needed. (Trying to get a few hours of fun). This home was exactly as shown and listed on VBRO. It was perfect for what we needed and the rooms were much larger than we anticipated. We would walk out to the beach every morning (literally steps to the ocean) and we were able to ride our bikes to most places we ate. The house is well stocked with the amenities to be able to live in and far surpassed our expectations. The beds were comfortable and all appliances were working and in order. As a former landlord in a resort town, I understand what it takes to make sure your guests are comfortable and satisfied. So I am a tough nut to please. It's the little things that landlords should do that make you want to come back. Chad made sure everything was in order the moment we checked in and when we had a slight issue with the lock he took care of it immediately - even though it was late during a work night. We had never been to OCMD and had no idea what to expect. We owned a beach house in OCNJ and knew how others treated thier property and renters so we were very cautious. This was an absolutely wonderful home and when we have to come back for another comp we will be looking to stay here again. Thank you Chad for everything.

A little bit of heaven by the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were set to go on a Europe trip but had to cancel due to an health issue and we decided we would try to make a quick change of travel plans - bring the whole family to the beach I spent my summer vacations as a kid. I hadn't been to Ocean City in years and was really excited to bring my kids. I was luck enough to come across Chad's place on a last minute decision and boy I don't regret it on bit!

First off, Chad is wonderful. He's pleasant and caring and very easy to communicate with. His place is perfect! Very Clean and updated. We loved that we could walk right out onto the beach. The dunes helped break the sound of the people on the beach but not the sound of the ocean and gave you privacy for a first level rental. You could still see the ocean too!

The location is great as well. My mother even commented on how much she enjoyed the location as we use to locate ourselves about 20-30 blocks up back in the day. Jolly Rogers is close for kids, Boardwalk isn't far. With the Convention Center across on the bay side it does help with keeping down the beach population in the area.

Highly recommend Chad's place. We had a great trip! My kids fell in love with OC. We hope to be back in Chad's place for future summer's to come!

Great condo - awesome family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time on our recent vacation in Ocean City. The condo was exactly as advertised, very clean, updated and nicely equipped with all the essentials. The size and location was perfect for us (three adults, three children). The direct beach access via the rear balcony/patio was very convenient and made getting back and forth to the beach with the family easy.

Chad was super accommodating and made himself available all week via email and phone. He got back to us immediately whenever we had any questions. I would definitely rent here again.
