|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Best view of the ocean, beach, pool and bay from 2 huge & private balconies. Bright and beautiful condo with comfy furnishings, renovated walls, floors, bath and kitchen for 2015 season! Now it's an open-concept, with plenty of room to entertain, but only room for two overnight. Full-time building manager and tenured security staff make Fountainhead a lovely and peaceful choice for your beach getaway. Grab beach treats right next store at the Carousel's pool cafe and bar.
Walk to shopping, dining and night-life. Our bay side balcony is an excellent perch for enjoying July 4th fireworks from Northside Park, or taking in the cars on Cruisers' Weekend. Our oceanfront balcony can't be beat for watching people, dolphins, the sunrise and those great, big, yellow moons!
High-speed, wireless Internet access available for a daily/weekly fee.
I grew up going to Ocean City every summer as a child. my parents retired there. Our low-maintenance condo is perfect beachfront destination, just two hours from home, to enjoy down-time from my job with Better Business Bureau serving Greater Maryland. Larry has retired for the last time - first as a career firefighter, next as an owner/captain of a charter fishing company, and lastly as a state employee - so we hope to start spending more time at our home away from home!
Larry & Jody Thomas purchased this condo in 1999
After combing the beaches of OC my husband and I bought our condo because it gave us two huge decks, one oceanfront and one bayview. Most one-bedroom properties on the ocean have tiny decks, lack privacy and have limited, single-slider views from inside. Not this condo!
We also have plenty of room to have friends and family over for entertaining (they just can't spend the night!) We love our location in North OC, the professional building management and our proximity to dining and groceries.
We would like to thank you for a wonderful time in your apartment. It was very nice and we would like to be back here again.
We just returned from a wonderful week at this beautiful condo and it was everything advertised and more.
The condo itself had a good set up; it was open and airy and was very comfortable. It has a perfect location with plenty of restaurants and shopping. One of the many added bonuses was that the bus stops right out front and for $3.00 you can ride it all day. We went to the Boardwalk and to the restaurants that were not in walking distance and did not need our car once during our stay.
The beach was fantastic; besides having soft sand and a lot of room, there was a lifeguard station right out front, which was another added bonus. There is a beautiful deck walkway that brings you to the beach and the (2) beach chairs came in very handy.
The pool was a perfect break from the beach, it was never crowded and there were always plenty of chairs available. It’s open from 9:00am to 8:00pm and was very clean and refreshing.
I have rented from Home Away many times and I would have to say this Condo ranks in the top three and will surly get my 5-stars rating.
When looking for a vacation rental-you won't find anything better!
This year our daughters dance teacher decided to attend the National Dance competition in Ocean City. We had never been to Ocean City & were unfamiliar with the different areas. Talking to other families, we found out that the boardwalk area is very crowded. Since this was going to be our family vacation as well, we wanted to stay further down the road. My husband spent alot of time researching different rental properties when he came across this one. He contacted Larry & Jody to get more information about their property. We were impressed by how quickly & thoroughly they responded to all of our questions. Great customer service-they helped to make the process so easy.
When we arrived, we were pleased with the condo. It was everything we were tod it would be. The photos of the condo are up to date & show the current furnishings. The furniture is comfortable including the furniture on the beach view balcony(our favorite place to lounge). It was like staying at someones home and not a rental. The view is great too-you are at the perfect level to get a great unobstructed view of the ocean & the dolphins!
As a family with younger children, it was nice to see there was security on the premises & plenty of parking out front. (Love the big tubs to take everything back & forth to the car-so helpful).
The complex has a really nice pool too-very clean. Every morning, a staff member cleaned the pool & the pool area that included tables with umbrellas & lot of lounge chairs(that are not shown in the pictures).
The grounds are well maintained. There is a really nice deck(vekadeck-so no splinters!!) around the pool & on the walkway that leads to the beach. Just as we had hoped, the beaches were clean & were not too crowded which was great so the kids could play & we could relax. Amazing lifeguards too.
Even though we weren't on the boardwalk, we were just minutes from everything-grocery/drug stores, great restaurants, shops and entertainment. The boardwalk was only about 10 minutes away & there's plenty of parking.
We HIGHLY recommend this condo to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation in Ocean City. The owners couldn't have been better & were so easy to work with. You can tell by the condition of their condo that they take pride in their rental. We truly enjoyed our stay & look forward to renting it again on our next visit to Ocean City.
Best location in the city, close to shopping , movie theater, Park an right on the beach. Clean property , aplenty of room and very well maintained.We enjoyed very much.Will be back again.
Thank you Larry & Jody
My wife and I just returned home after spending 7 beautiful nights in this condo in ocean city md. The property is very nice and the furniture very comfortable, i especially enjoyed the ocean view balcony, the furniture was so comfortable u could easily take a nice nap out there.We cant wait until next year to return again.
I am usually not the type of person that would rent a condo from someone on a website, but after reading the reviews on the Thomas' condo we decided to take the chance... and we are glad that we did.
Jody was great throughout the entire process. She was there to answer any questions we had and responded to phone calls and emails promptly. She sends you the keys to the place a week in advance and even provides a self addressed envelop for you to return the keys to them when you stay in completed.
We had never been to Ocean City before and we could not have been happier with the location on the condo. A huge plus is that is located on the ocean side on Coastal Highway! This means that you will not have cross any roads at all to get the the beach! There is a walkway right next to the pool that leads directly to the beach. You can easily get to the beach from the condo in less that 3 minutes including your elevator ride! This really helped having a year and half old with a bunch of toys to take to the beach.
The beach itself is huge! We went on the busiest week and we still had plenty of room to dig and play ball.
Having a pool is such an added bonus! The water was warm and there were always plenty of chairs available for seating. The shallow end is large enough for plenty of kids and parents.
The condo itself has a great layout. The bedroom is on one end of the unit away from the living room and kitchen. Our son loved the pass through that the kitchen has to the living room! The bedroom is plenty big enough, we even had a pack and play in there with us with room to spare. The best part about the condo is the views. You have a HUGE balcony that overlooks the pool and the ocean. Great for sitting in the morning and watching dolphins swimming by. There is a 3 person couch, 2 big chairs, and a high top table for 4 all on the ocean side balcony! The other balcony is located in the front of the building. You exit the condo's front door and on the other side of the walkway is the Bay side balcony with amazing sunset views!
Great North Ocean City location, you are away from the craziness of the boardwalk, but can get there with a 10 minute drive. Food Lion grocery store in one block away so you can walk there, Jody even gives you a savers card!
Overall, we had a great first family vacation and would highly recommend this condo others. Thanks again to Jody and Larry for sharing their place with us!!!
What a wonderful vacation we had at this condo! My biggest decision all week is which balcony to sit on, with the oceanfront one usually winning. It was our first alone vacation with our youngest now 18 and it was everything we hoped it to be a more. The views are breathtaking. Almost everyday we saw the dolphins go by. This was a more quiet week since it was right after Labor Day and I think I will plan more September vacations. The condo is lovely and everything is pretty much supplied for you. Jody was wonderful in answering all my questions. I'm so glad "Earl" passed by the area. I hope the next time we have an "alone" vacation we'll get to come back here, but my son now wants to come with us again after we told him everything you can do here. So looks like next vacation will be a big family one with all the kids.
