Sunset Island Ocean City Condo Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8 (6 adults or 8 with kids)
June-August is sold out, but there are still choice weeks available in September when all the amenities are open.
Professionally decorated second-floor end-unit condo with elevator overlooks pond and $1 million interactive fountain. New bayside Sunset Island neighborhood at 67th Street was designed by same architect who did Disney's Celebration, the incredible planned community in Orlando. This condo is much more than a place at the beach. Gated community features both an indoor and outdoor pool; a state-of-the-art gym; a clubhouse with sauna, library, etc.; three private bay beaches (great for sunset viewing and for toddlers), a gourmet general store; hiking trail; and bayfront restaurant/bar. Easy three-block walk to the ocean, an extra-wide stretch of sand with room to breathe even on holiday weekends. Beach is situated next to the full-service Holiday Inn, a great spot to listen to live music or grab a cold drink. Condo decorated for owners.
The Place: The condo (4 Fountain Drive East 3A) was originally decorated as an owner-occupied unit, and quality is way above average. Well-stocked kitchen, including such niceties as a professional-grade corkscrew. There is a full collection of kids' videos, several DVDs for the parents and books galore for everyone. Great stereo system with built-in speakers. This is also a great choice for the grandparents: Underground parking, elevator and oversize doors that allow wheelchair entry makes the living easy, and protected balcony that overlooks the interactive fountain, pond, and walking trail is a great way to stay entertained, even if you can't get to the beach. Would also work well for two families of four.
The Community: If you never wanted to leave Sunset Island, you wouldn't have to. This place is unique in Ocean City; perhaps on the entire Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey coast. It's got all the bells and whistles, and if you're the type who wants more than just the beach, this is the place for you. The architecture is Key West with great colors, and open balconies and porches. The kids will never be bored with the indoor pool, outdoor pool and interactive fountain, and you'll feel safe letting them roam in this protected, gated community. Adults will love pulling up a chair and watching the sunset while enjoying a refreshing cocktail. And for those who need a good workout before lying on the beach, the gym is state-of-the-art with treadmills, weight machines, free weights, elliptical, bikes, and three flat-screen TVs. The island was sold out to renters last year by mid June.

Be aware that not all Sunset Island condos are equal. Some are owned by absentee investors who don't concern themselves with your vacation experience. We remember very well what it was like to save all year for that one-week at the beach: It meant the world to us to find a lovely, well-stocked home, and now it's important to us that our guests have the very best experience.
Renters, except children, must be at least age 25.

Guestbook comments from the owner
All the comforts of home. Even with the rain, we loved it! So much more to do here than just go to the beach. Celebrated 48th birthday and 22nd anniversary. Couldn't think of a nicer place to spend it. God bless!
Carol & Bud are not merely investment owners. Bud is the president of the Sunset Island Master Association's board of directors and is also a member of the condo board. Carol is on the Sunset Island's social committee and leads the island's nature hikes. We love this place, and we are constantly striving to keep it wonderful. Our condos (we have two that we rent) are treated with loving care, and we constantly replenish and refresh to make sure your stay is perfect.
All condos on Sunset Island were created equally, but they've not been kept up equally. Whether you rent from me or not, please make sure the condo you choose is owned by people who care. I remember very well what it was like to save all year for that one week of vacation. It meant so much to my family to have a clean, well-maintained and well-equipped property. The few times we inadvertently rented an absentee investor's place, we were so disappointed. Ask questions! When was the last time it was painted? Are mattresses original or are they replaced when needed? Does the owner ever visit the property to make sure it's good to go? Are the photos of the condo current? I want you to have a great experience on Sunset Island, and that starts with you renting a lovely home.
