Overview

About the property

Luxury high-rise/2 BR/2 Baths/balconies/outdoor heated pools & sauna/free WiFi

High-rise condo with newly renovated kitchen/granite countertop/new tile flooring throughout the unit except for the carpeted bedrooms. Just step to the beach. We acccept mini-week rentals (min 3 nights) as well as rentals to seniors with parents' signatures and consents. For our special guests, this spacious fully furnished, well-decorated 2BR/2 Bath deluxe beach condo is equipped with free Wi-Fi and high-definition Comcast digital cable TV. The Unit has the most spectacular panoramic view of the City, the Assawoman Bay and the Ocean due to the building's unique location at the most narrow section of the city's peninsula and close proximity to both the Ocean and the Bay. Relax and dine on the extra large 22-ft private balcony (not visible to occupants of the adjacent units due to the circular design of the building) or in the Dining Room while enjoying the magnificient views of the blue sky, the immense Bay, the beautiful City and the winding Beach captured from almost every corner of this condo unit.

From the balcony, watch the sunny beach run for miles South until it fades away...at around perhaps 50th street. Don't miss the unforgettable sunsets at night. During the day, water sport activities on the Ocean and the Bay (i.e. parasailing, jetskyiing, etc.) can be viewed from the balcony. The beach can be seen at a 45 degree angled view with full view of the Bay from the Master bedroom, Living/Dining Room, and from the balcony.

The condo can comfortably accomodate 6 people (actually more than 6 but the Antigua Condo Association rule only allows 6 per 2BR unit). The extra foldable standard size crib can fit in the Master BR which has a king size bed, a vanity table and dresser. The Guest Bedroom has large windows open to the interior balcony and sky dome. It is elegantly furnished with one queen size bed and one twin with 2 dressers and mirror. Additional guests may use the queen size sofa bed in the living room. The nicely furnished dining table set with tall chairs in the Living/Dining Room with kitchen counters used as breakfast nook allows the guests to admire the gorgeous Bay and Ocean panorama while dining. One can cook in the kitchen while enjoying these gorgeous views as the inside of the Unit has been architecturally restructured to maximize the views.

At night, bring your binoculars to the exterior balcony to watch tiny little cars glow in the dark over the illuminated Highway 90 Bridge. Enjoy the sunset and the ocean breeze while dining in the open air on the balcony. Watch the moon shine at night on the Ocean. Feel the vibrant energy of Ocean City through the neon lights as you dine into the night. The Unit can offer the most romantic ambiance for the young couples or newly weds and yet at the same time provide a warm and cozy place for a large family in need of space. Beach toys are kept in the utility room for the tiny toddlers.

Enjoy the beautiful outdoor heated pool and find peace and comfort in the two saunas for His and Hers as your toddlers can have fun in the little shallow pool next to the large one for adults.

Of course, don't forget the beach with the condominium's private volley ball field and picnic tables right by the beach. Other nearby high-rise hotels and condominiums are accessible from the beach. This can be your perfect and relaxing vacation in Ocean City!

Your Unit entrance and internet access codes are included in the VRBO or HomeAway Antigua Condo Access Instructions Attachment or made available to you when you sign in at the Office Desk upon arrival.

About Isabelle T. Nguyen

We love the beach and the pure & fresh air of Ocean City. Although we retired and moved to a city about 15 minute drive from Huntington Beach, Surf City California, we often fly out to the East Coast to visit our beach condo in Ocean City, MD. Sharing the beach condo with our guests allows us to be able to keep the condo and afford the high upkeep costs associated with ocean-front properties.

There is an on-premise Condo Association Property Manager who will be welcoming you and handling your registration when you arrive at our condominium building known as the Antigua Condominium located on 85th and Coastal Highway.

Isabelle T. Nguyen purchased this condo in 2002

Why Isabelle T. Nguyen chose Ocean City

My husband and I love Ocean City. We have been going to the beach every Summer since we moved to Maryland in 1971 from Connecticut after graduation from U. Conn. Back in the early years after the Antigua Condominium was built, we drove by and were able to park our car right inside the rotunda. Now, you can't do that anymore. We fell in love with the building's unique circular architecture (designed after a building in Japan except for the open dome) and decided to make it our permanent retreat place for the Summer. We love to stroll along the beach either very early in the morning or late at night just to hear the sound of the waves. We enjoy having breakfast and dinner on the balcony while watching the sun rise on the Ocean side or set on the immense Bay. We could capture the same views when dining inside the Unit. On a full moon, at night, we could see the metallic reflection of the moon on the surface of the ocean waves from the balcony. Although the Unit is not direct front, it offers 3 different views in one uninterrupted panorama, a 45-degree view of the beach, full view of the vibrant City and full view of the large beautiful Assawoman Bay with Highway 90 Bridge in the background. Nothing is more peaceful and relaxing than having an early morning jog on the beach when the sand is still cool and before anyone sets foot on the beach. Fishing competition has been held right on our beach in front of our building. The Antigua Condominium occupies the whole block between 85th and 86th streets, Coastal Highway and the Ocean line at the narrowest point of the long peninsula. The building is within 15 to 20- minute drive from the Ocean City Boardwalk and the Northern Delaware beaches. Luckily, gambling is not allowed in Ocean City which is a very family-oriented beach resort and one would have to travel to the nearest town, Oceandown, a 30-minute drive from Ocean City to find casinos.

What makes this condo unique

We love the smell of the ocean and the sound of the waves. The building is in close proximity to the Carousel Hotel where we can go ice-skating. Other high-rise hotels, condominiums, groceries stores, church, library, movie theaters, restaurants and shops are within close distance from our building. The property is also close to the Northside State Park on 125th st and the Bay where we can go roller-blading, bicycling, crabbing at the pier and where the Annual Arts & Crafts festival and other special events are being held (i.e July the 4th fireworks). Ocean City, the White Marlin Capital of the World, is famous for bottom fishing in the bays and deep sea fishing offshore the Atlantic Ocean. The Gulf Stream is also a short distance offshore and easily reached by boat to fish. For shopping, there is also outlet malls on the outskirt of Ocean City and in Delaware. Ocean Down, a nearby town (within 20 min drive), offers casino gambling.

Beautiful balcony

  • 4 of 5

The owners are very nice, the kitchen is brand new. The condos very clean except for the couches. The only problem was that they didn't advise us we needed sheets and towels. Over all I will stay here again. But will bring sheets and towels.

Owner's Response: The requirement that guests bring their own linens is included in the Owner Lease Agreement that was sent thru VRBO as attachment to the booking confirmation. It is possible that the guests could have missed opening the attachment. Nevertheless, Owners did leave two extra sets of bed linens in one of the bedrooms' closet for emergency use by the guests. Hotels normally provide bed linens but it is customary that our guests bring their own linen and toiletteries when renting condomiums (which are considered apartments for longer term rental compared to for short term rental such as hotels). As to the couch, it will be replaced at the end of the season. Couches get the most use and are frequently replaced at the end of the rental season. Thank you for your constructive comments.

12th floor condo with great views

  • 4 of 5

All was neat and clean (it is time to recover the couches, though). Physical separation of two bedrooms each with separate bathroom was very convenient. Elevator was quick and waits were short.

Beautiful condo and everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

I was there last year as a guest with my sister at another condo. This one was even better. Just make sure that the cleaning people vacuum the couches because they were sandy and made the floor sandy as well. Otherwise, we loved it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for selecting our beach condo as your vacation home. Glad you enjoyed the property with all its amenities. We are happy when our guests are happy. I appreciate your positive feedback and surely will let the cleaning crew know about the missed sand left on the tile floor. The Summer has always been busy and hectic for our cleaning crew and they probably did a rush job running from one condo to another in an attempt to complete their job within the allowed time frame between check-ins and check outs. Our goal is to achieve 100% satisfaction from our guests.
