Summer 2014 is now ready for booking! Reserve early to get your desired week.
We bought this lovely condo overlooking the bay in 2011. Top-to-bottom, everything was replaced -- new paint, new furniture, new rugs, and every last item in kitchen. We are hands-on owners who constantly refresh and replace. Our goal is for you to walk in the door and say, 'Wow!'
The condo is located on Sunset Island, the most sought-after community in Ocean City. This bayfront 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 $1 million interactive fountain; a state-of-the-art gym; a clubhouse with sauna, library, etc.; three private bay beaches (great for sunset viewing and for toddlers - the condo overlooks one of those beaches); a gourmet general store; hiking trail; and bayfront restaurant/bar featuring waitservice at the pool and adjoining bay beach.
The Community of Sunset Island: 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, guarded 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. There is also a one-mile trail that circles the island, and is great for walking, jogging or bike-riding. The island was sold out to renters last year by mid June.
Our Condo Is Special : The condo is on the 4th floor overlooking the bay. Some may be quite content sitting on the balcony and reading a good book, as the view is very relaxing and inviting. A quiet bay beach, with warm, clean water that is very safe for kids, is right in front of the condo.
The condo offers lots of extras, including an oversize jacuzzi tub and separate walk-in shower in the master bath; granite counter tops in the kitchen; flat-screen TVs in every bedroom; a full library; kids' DVDs; and board games. I love interior design, and spent many, many hours hand-picking each piece of furniture and all the extra touches. See the video at http://bit.ly/noAjgT
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.
Carol & Bud are not merely investment owners. Bud is on 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. 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.
