About Valentina Rusu

Beach is our second nature and we spent a lot more weekends than average person driving to Ocean City or Bethany Beach, which is over three hours one way...

Valentina Rusu purchased this condo in 2004

Why Valentina Rusu chose Ocean City

Carousel has all the resort amenities and even after 10+ years of coming here, we still discover new things.

What makes this condo unique

Beach proximity and all the amenities in one place!

Very nice Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this spacious condo. It was nicely decorated, clean and had everything we needed. The owners are very responsive. We look forward to coming back again.

Overall a great experience!

  • 4 of 5

My family was travelling from Ohio, and we wanted to find a destination not too incredibly far away so that we could drive with our toddler. Carousel is wonderful for families, and has many amenities to keep you occupied if you end up stuck inside (as we did for a few days during Hurricane Jose.) The pools and beach access are particularly wonderful.

The check-in process was easy, and our communication with Valentina couldn't have been better. Very accommodating and kind. They even allowed us to use a few of their beach chairs.

The condo is beautiful, but because it was the end of the season, it needed some maintenance. I have no doubt they'll take care of the necessary upkeep for the next busy season. The beds were comfortable, and it was really nice to have a washer/drier to use in the condo.

I was a little unhappy with the building located in front of our unit, and wouldn't consider this necessarily ocean front. I thought I'd be looking straight down at a beach, but it's another wing of Carousel. Overall, not a huge deal, but not what I expected. The balconies are nice though, and offer plenty of seating.

The kitchen is pretty well-stocked and we did some cooking in the unit.

We liked Ocean City, and really loved the Carousel building. With a few minor improvements this condo would be 5 stars for me. Great memories made with my family!

Great condo

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a long weekend. Very nice condo with a comfortable bed. Nicely decorated and clean. The balcony was spacious and we loved sitting in the reclining lounge chairs listening to the ocean waves. The view overlooked the lower buildings of the condo complex on the left side, but still had a decent view looking toward the right.

Really liked the proximity to grocery store and several restaurants in walking distance. All in all, very nice vacation. Thanks!

Nice Condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo was nice with great views. The hotel had a lot going for it: indoor pool, restaurant, ocean, outdoor pool, kiddie pool. Also, it is right across the street from a supermarket, pharmacy and food options. The reason I'd only give this property 4 stars is the hotel is a bit run down. But most places in OC are getting like that. But, the owner of this condo was great to communicate with and I would stay here again if visiting OC.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much! It was nice to have you at the condo, you definitely did your part nicely and will love to have you back in future years! AS for the building, they constantly do improvements in the lobby, pools, elevators, grounds... but it is hard to keep up in the summer with very large number of visitors every year! The extra amenities makes it appealing to a lot of people... Have a nice rest of the summer! VALENTINA

We enjoyed our stay at this condo but found the owner to be completely ignorant and rude.

The condo was very nice however we were disappointed in our view. The view is of the tops of the other buildings and the air conditioning units and air vents. Very noisy and never explained in the initial ad. For us to see the ocean/beach we had to sit on one side of the balcon. We did have a mix up with the directions on how to "clean up" ( mind you we just paid over $2000) when we were leaving. The directions that are posted on the refrigerator and the directions the owner sent me were completely different. We were out of the condo by 10. Her worker was the one that was late not us.

Plus the comforters were never cleaned from the guest before, they had obvious stains on them. here are the emails she sent us.

Thank you for renting form us!

I was told the check out was later than 10:00… Other check out instructions not followed properly. The linens and towels part… I was asking for you to take all of them and place in a blue bag on the washer. Not to take everything from the bed, mattress pad and all and pile on dresser. It takes so much time to sort thru all piled up sheets, pillow case, blankets mattress pads… Your the one asking for early check in. We were glad to accommodate…But we do not have stuff like the hotel, our people need to move to next job quickly. That is the only way we can keep the rates at the current level. If you feel it is too much to ask, maybe next time you would like to try renting from the hotel directly. They are more relaxed about this, however their rates are as much as $3-500 more.

I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I did not mean to upset you al all, let alone all of you…I suggested to bring all laundry to the blue bag on the washer. It wasn’t done. I was told additional blankets/comforters from the closet were on the dresser…No big deal in normal conditions, and I am glad you used those…but on a Saturday mid summer different story. The cleaners have to clean for us alone 4 condos in 4 different buildings, in 2 towns. Have you noticed the traffic? I am sure you understand that is not easy to go back and forth with that kind of traffic. They showed up at 10, could not go in for half an hour or so. There is a good reason we have a firm check out time.

I think I answered all your questions timely and told you I am always available for questions… Would have been easy to ask if the note on the fridge was “confusing"

Owner's Response: I have added a picture with a review that you wrote before leaving on July 15... White out the name, to keep it "anonymous" however, the dates are there and full review. How much better can I do to get a few more stars on your official review?!? I do not appreciate the name calling and hope VRBO will be doing something about keeping this website civil... I am in the business of accommodating, your family asked to have an extra car pass, I arranged to have it, you asked if you could pay in several installments, I agreed to that at no extra fees, you asked for early check in, you got it! You wrote a 5 star review in my guest book at the condo...see copy with the pictures, above. 10+ days later after I expressed disappointment with disregard of house rules, you decide to completely reverse that... Everybody reading this review should continue to read previous reviews, as well over 100 mostly 5 star reviews for my other condos and then make a judgement about who is ignorant... And by the way, date of your stay was July 8. Above it says July 7...That is just a fact that can be easily checked , Saturday July 8 to 15. Are all the other facts in your review as accurate as the date?
