"This was our first time in Ocean City and we really enjoyed it. The good: Jeff and Charry are really, really nice and make everything easy. The condo has a gorgeous view from the living room and master bedroom over a few canals with both a view of the bay, and a view of the Ocean City skyline. It's really nice to sit out there for coffee or dinner and watch the boats and the waterfowl. The second bedroom also has a balcony on the other side overlooking the tennis courts and pool area. The pool area is REALLY nice, with a lap pool with lanes and then an open one for free play. It features chaise loungers, games you can check out from the office, umbrellas and lots of shade, and lifeguards. It feels like a country club. Inside, the condo's kitchen is well-outfitted with everything you could possibly need, including a spice rack, so that was beyond nice. The living room/dining area is on the small side but it has a great TV with full cable. The furniture and wallpaper/carpet combo are a little dated but that wasn't a big deal for us. There was a ceiling fan in the master bedroom which was highly appreciated. The beds were comfortable and we took the option to use the provided bedding which was so convenient. The neighborhood is quiet and a condo community so there's none of the boardwalk/nightlife craziness--appreciated that, exactly what we wanted. You can walk to the grocery store and the CVS. There are a couple of bars and restaurants in the same area too. On the down side, there's no Wi-Fi (the citywide Wi-Fi didn't work for me very well), and it's a bit of a walk to the beach if you have gear with you. It also involves crossing a 6-lane highway (there's a light though). The "three blocks" are very long blocks! Being on 120th guests should be aware that this is a bit north of some of the activities and will add drive time (Assateague Island, Jolly Roger's, recommended restaurants and the boardwalk). We didn't mind that though some might. And lastly, there's no grill for BBQing and no extra amenities (beach gear, access to the fitness center etc)--talking to people that have been to OC though I got the feeling that's the norm. Overall a very, very pleasant stay and I would highly recommend this rental, especially for the view and balconies!"
