December 2015 we had the carpeting replaced, new beds for the 2nd bedroom upgrading to Queen size on both. We will also added a 50" Big screen TV to the living room! XBOX IS BEING ADDED TO REPLACE THE OLD WEII.....If anyone know how to hook the WEII up correctly both would be available for your use :}

Hi Randy!

We just got back home last night. We had a wonderful time. There were 2 good days of weather and we could actually get in the ocean and hunt for shells and play. My girls were amazed by the ocean, but it was our oldest Jack Russell 'Digby' who had the best time in the water. We did a few things locally, Ripley's, laser tag, but most of the time we just chilled at the condo. All the staff were so helpful and condiserate. It was our best vacation to date as a family. We plan on going back during the peak season. Also my youngest daughter didn't have anything to take her shells home in so we 'borrowed' one of the large plastic bowls and lids from the kitchen to get them back to Ohio. I would like to either replace the bowl or get the money to you for it. Again, we had a wonderful time and have every intention of coming back again. Thank you!!!!!!

Hi Randy, I have to admit that this has been one of my best vacations ever, it was like home. The condo was perfect...very relaxing. We had a problem though with the handle coming off the shower head in the living room bathroom, other than that everything is fine. I am leaving on Monday evening and will clean the unit and leave it as I found it...nice and ready for the next tenents. I sure hope I can get down again and I sure will rent your unit again. We had the stove stuck on 'clean' when we came, so we couldn't close the door because the latch was stuck to the left, but my son fixed it by pushing the button on the left inside the door of the oven and waiting until the lever returned to its normal position if you should ever have this problem. We really enjoyed our vacation and don't want to leave!!!! Take care and I am sure I will be contacting you in the future. Theresa :-)

Hi Randy!

The only real problem that I have with this week's visit to OC and our stay in your condo is that we have to leave today! I just love being here and am very happy that we've found your condo to rent. Thank you for providing a great condo to rent at a very reasonable price! We love staying here. It's always hard to leave. We'll look forward to our visit in October!

Best wishes to you! Sandy

Thank you so much for allowing us to rent the condo for the weekend. The condo was gorgeous and I was impressed with the facility's many activities. We all had an amazing time and can't wait to make plans to do it again. We made sure to load the washer and dishwasher before we left, and took out the trash.

Our trip was great, and there was nothing we thought serious enough to call you about. We really enjoyed ourselves and we're already checking our calendar (and yours) about next year! :)

Thank you again!! We hope to be repeat renters again and again.

About Randy Marshalek

Hello,

My twin Boys and I purchased this wonderful condo in the fall of 2006. We have been blessed with many of great guests. Thank you all for all of your rentals! We try very hard to not only keep the condo in great condition but to also keep the prices as low as possible. Thanks for your help in keeping the prices down.

Why Randy Marshalek chose Maryland

There's nothing like staying right on the ocean. We all get limited time away from the hustle and bustle too where we should all enjoy some time right on top of the Atlantic ocean. Very peaceful!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Randy,





I wanted to thank you again for the use of your condo in Ocean City - my sister's and I had an amazing time - the condo I believe is the absolute BEST place to stay in Ocean City, the view of the sun setting on the bay and rising on the ocean was the highlight of our stay there - your place is very nice and comfortable and we enjoyed all the things the Carousel had to offer - it has been 30 years since I was able to go to Ocean City and had a most memorable time - thank you again and if and when I am ever able to stay there again I hope your place is available

February 2017 the master bath was remodeled and the living room furniture was replaced. December 2015 we had the carpeting replaced, new beds for the 2nd bedroom upgrading to Queen size on both and a new dresser. We will also be added a 50" Big screen TV to the living room!

The stove and Fridge were replaced on Friday September 6th, 2013. The hall bathroom was remodeled February 2014 and a new dishwasher was installed. I can honestly say that the condo is in better shape right now than ever before! Enjoy!!

We offer great prices for the winter season. The Carousel is it's own enclosed paradise to keep you out of the cold....and you get to see the Winterfest of Lights! Thanks in advance for your rental!

The Carousel is located in beautiful Ocean City, which is Maryland's most popular tourist vacation spot. Tons of family activities to do. From miniature golf to amusement parks. You will never want to stay elsewhere again! This resort hotel/ condo is its own little paradise in itself. Please let us know through an inquiry if you don't like something about our condo or our website. We want all of our customers 100% happy!

Unfortunitly our condo is no longer pet friendly :} Their is a new employee @ the Carousel that has not been 'Guest Friendly' to our clients that brought their four legged friends. We thank all of our great guests that have returned year after year to our condo!

Condo does have wifi

Golf: Dear Randy and Christine,

Thank you for the wonderful weekend we spent at your home. Ocean City, surprisingly, was a bit busy with several soccer teams in town for their tournaments. That made the weekend a bit more fun as, with the warm weather, the beach had a fairly good amount of activity. We arrived late Saturday evening and followed your recommendations for dinner at Seasons.

I notified your housekeeper Royce of our plans to check out early. She truly is a charming person and so devoted to you and your family. Upon leaving, as instructed, we washed/dried the bedding and left it on the bed, washed/dried/ re stacked the towels, vacuumed the rugs, and emptied the trash can. I must admit your home was not only lovely, but also spotless. Although we did not utilize the kitchen, I was impressed with the order and the cleanliness of the kitchen, the refrigerator, and the stock you provide to make one's vacation as convenient as home. Never having rented a private home for vacation, one of my main concerns was in whether or not the home would be up to my standards. You (and Royce) have calmed my concerns.

Again, thank you both for allowing us to thoroughly relax in your home. I only wish I could bottle the sound of the waves and the gentle breeze from your balcony.

With warmest regard,

Jane Moser

Ski: Greetings Randy,

Michael and I really enjoyed our time at the beach and staying in your condo. We were very pleased! We love having a nice place to stay in Ocean City that allows us to bring our beloved Westie with us. We rarely travel without her. The condo was very clean and lovely. It is layed out well. It was very nice not having to pack and carry bedding and towels with us like we do with one condo that we rent. The only thing that we would have liked better was to have better Internet access in the condo. The Carousel was nice and everyone was very friendly. We will definitely be in touch to hopefully rent your condo again.

Although sometimes temperamental, there is wireless internet in the condo. For future reference, click on the little computer fiqure. Go to whichever Carousel site that has the most powerful signal. The The next step if that does not put you right on line is, type in Network connections and agree to the terms, there is no charge. Thanks again Sandy!

Owner's Response: Hello Louise, again my apologies for the cleaning folks not taking care of washing the sheets and towels. I spoke to the General Manager and he stated that it was a new person was assigned to the condo that day. Most of the condos they clean do not provide sheets and towels therefore cleaning of them is not part of their service. I do believe the problem has been rectified moving forward. Please come again....You are a 5 Star guest!!!!

Very nice and great for kids. Needs a little TLC with housekeeping.

  • 3 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The condo is spacious and has lots of amenities (boogie boards, beach toys, towels, etc). The view is OUTSTANDING from both the front and back balconies! We watched the sunrise on one side and sunset on the other. The bathrooms are nicely done, clean, and updated. The kitchen was well stocked and there was plenty of room for what we needed. The living room was comfortable and updated. Our only complaints were that the balcony had leftover trash and a full ashtray from previous renters. The bedrooms closets are a mess, like stuff was just shoved in there (sheets, blankets, household items, etc.) Lastly the dryer was left FULL with everything from pillows, blankets, towels and sheets. It was wet b/c nothing could possibly dry with that much stuff in it. It seems that all the negatives had to do with housekeeping and not with the condo or resort itself.

Perfect vacation!

We had a mix up at the beginning but Randy was quick to fix everything. The condo was perfect to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The staff at the hotel were very accommodating and made our stay memorable. If you are looking for a nice relaxing family vacation this is your place!

Owner's Response: Hi Bernie, I guess that I'm at fault. In the email I sent you I was a bit vague....I stated that "toiletries were not provided" I take that has paper products along as shampoos, etc. I sure hope that didn't dampen your stay at all. Randy
