This weekly summer vacation rental offers lots of 'Home Away from Home' style, & is certain to make memories to remember. This continually updated, first floor condo unit features great oceanfront views. We welcome you to Ocean City Maryland & our home at the Sandpiper Dunes Condominium. Ocean City has so much to offer & there's always something new to see and do. Enjoy sunning on the beach right off our deck. There are great places to eat, a boardwalk to stroll, outlets to shop & nature to explore. For sports enthusiasts, you'll find lots of local activities. Take a swing at one of our many golf courses. Sail in the skies with a para sail, or hit the waters running with a jet-ski or boat. It's our belief that our beach home will only enhance your vacation relaxation & fun. Many units in Ocean City are rental units & just that. But this condo is truly our second home during the off season & we try during your stay to make it your home as well. Just read the section called 'Further details' to see why.

We have stayed at Bed & Breakfasts, and have always loved the 'home away from home' feeling they afford. It is our sincere hope that we are able to provide that same feeling to you. Special touches include fresh linens and towels for the beds and bath, as well as beach chairs, umbrellas, a beach cart, and boogie boards for guests' use. For that possible rainy day, there are plenty of board games, a Play Station, and movies. And if you love to cook, the fully-equipped kitchen is ideal for those wishing to try their hand at becoming the next Chef Emeril.

This two-bedroom/two-bath condo is situated directly on the Atlantic Ocean in Ocean City, Maryland in a ten-story building with a two-story penthouse. There is an outdoor swimming pool, a recycling area, and a handicapped ramp to the first main level. Guests will have the use of two reserved parking spots, and there is off-street public parking nearby.

Our home has a fully-equipped kitchen, a dining area, a living room with a direct ocean view, a master bedroom with a direct ocean view, a generous-size second bedroom, two full baths, and a completely furnished oceanfront porch off the living room and master bedroom. Our Ocean City MD vacation home was totally refurbished in 2002 and has yearly upgrades to keep it up to date. It features new tile floors and carpeting, new counter tops and cabinet fronts in the kitchen, and new bathroom sinks and fixtures.

Our vacation rental home is fully air-conditioned and there are three ceiling fans, which are great if you like to keep the windows open to hear the crash of the ocean waves. The home is located on the first floor, and features a tremendous view of the beach and the foam of the waves. It has quick access to the beach, and is located centrally in Ocean City. There are both formal and casual restaurants nearby as well as tennis, putt-putt golf, and nightclubs.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us by phone or e-mail. We hope to see you this season; and we wish you a great time at Ocean City, Maryland.

About Donna L Smith-Seeley

I have been involved with providing guests a vacation home since the age of 24. 25+ yrs later I am still doing such, but for the last 10+ yrs I have been handling this100% on my own. No management company, no rental company and no cookie cutter home. I like to be hands on, like to be with people and truly offer a nice home for families. I am a mother, wife, work full time, love cooking, crafts, gardening and in the summer am down between guests with the help of friends to prepare our home for our guests' arrival. I have always wanted a bed and breakfast and for now this is the closest to it. If you look at our listing, contact me for our personal website or search our home on facebook, you will see Seeley's OC Sandcastle is just a little special place of ours that we try really hard to make as special for our guests that visit us. We have so many returning families and know if you offer something not the norm, treat guests well they will return. Note the view and allure of the atlantic ocean doesn't hurt either.

Why Donna L Smith-Seeley chose Maryland

Our direct ocean front beach home in Ocean City Maryland is in the mid town region of Ocean City Maryland. We have the belief that if you present a nice clean home and you treat guests above the norm you will have repeat families to visit time after time. We truly care about our home and take pride in the care and upkeep we do. We also try and provide a place that is like home for guests with fresh linens on the beds, towels for the bath, paper products and soaps and just many extras not typical for Ocean City Maryland Vacation Homes. Our home also has lovely ocean views, easy access to the dunes walk, a pool, two assigned parking spots and easy access into Ocean City from the rt 90 bridge. Please call so we may provide additional information, photos, guest book reviews and more. We hope that you will come and visit us for your Ocean City Maryland summer vacation.

What makes this condo unique

I have had a vacation home in Ocean City Maryland since I was 24. I talked my mom into doing such with me back then. It seems like just yesterday. Now 25+ years later my husband and son are involved with this venture and it is truly a family affair. We married here, made many family memories here and just love what Ocean City MD offers for a family vacation. We especially love it in the off season when Ocean City shrinks back to a small town. There is certainly something for everyone to do. Our home is not the norm. As noted above we provide linens and towels and truly set it up more like a bed and breakfast for our guests. We have many repeat families visit and have become long distant friends with many. We have owned our current home for 11 years and we have one family on their 10th summer with us this yr (2013). Why we think our home is great? It is mid town. The beach is family oriented, bigger than the northern section of Ocean City MD with some nice restaurants within walking distance. Our condominium provides security in the summer, have a nice large parking lot with two assigned spots, a pool and outside showers. We are steps from the dune walk so access to the beach is so easy. Being an elevated first floor home, we are above the dunes with great direct ocean views, but also not the need for elevator waits. We have a fully stocked balacony with table, chairs and recliners. Truly a nice place to relax, take in the views, hear the ocean waves and smell the salt air. A great place to have a morning cup of coffee as the sun rises. We already noted above we also take pride in our home and we do update it often. We just want to share a nice beach home for guests to share their family Ocean City beach memories at. Come try us out. I think you won't want to leave.

A true home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Donna and Randy, the owners have done everything to make your stay in OC a relaxing and enjoyable one. There is no misrepresentation at all in the photos or description. They have provided for everything and you will not be dissapointed with their property. It is exceptionally clean, well cared for and maintained. The location is the best - first floor with easy access to the beach and the pool!

We especially liked all of the high-end appliances. The washer and dryer are to die for!!!

Loved not having to bring sheets and beach towels and beach stuff. Saved so much on the packing. Don't worry about breakfast and coffee on your first morning there, either. They provided for that as well!

If you have babies or toddlers (which I don't) - you MUST get this as your rental. They have all the gear you need down to a little 'training potty'!!!

Donna and Randy - Thanks for everything! What a great vacation we had!

My stay at Seeley's OC Sandcastle

  • 5 of 5

I was extremely satisfied with my stay at Seeley's OC Sandcastle. My daughter & I had a wonderful stay. Everything we needed was at the condo. I loved the view & the convenience of walking to the beach.

The owners made us feel most welcome. The condo was exactly as it was described online. It was clean & well-maintained.

I thought the price was very reasonable. I would definitely recommend this summer rental to anyone. In fact, I'm going back next year.

Excellent experience. After driving two days from Florida with grandchildren, it was wonderful to have everything we could possibly need awaiting us. The views were spectacular and the convenience of the beach perfect. We highly recommend Seeley's OC Sandcastle!

Perfect condo rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the best vacation this past summer at the Seeley's condo. It was awesome to have everything right there for you as opposed to bringing it from home. We have a 2 year old daughter and everything was down there, including movies, puzzles, and beach toys. It alleviated all of the stress a vacation can sometimes bring. It was also so clean from the moment you walked in the door. The view was amazing from the bedroom and the balcony. We will definitely be back next year and we're so happy we found the perfect place for our family.

Great Condo in OC!

  • 5 of 5

This condo in Ocean City, Maryland is really a wonderful place to stay. It feels like someone's home as soon as you walk in the door. The hallway, kitchen and dining areas have updated tile floors like you would want in your own home. The beds are very comfortable and made up in matching bedding that looks like a picture right out of Laura Ashley. Plus, there are PLENTY of blankets and pillows. There are dimmers on almost every light switch (love those!) and Corain counters in the bathrooms. The bathrooms also have both an exhaust fan and heat lamp. The living room and master bedroom BOTH have a wonderful view of the beach and ocean. There are ceiling fans in both bedrooms and the living room. The washer and dryer are newer front loaders, which I have never seen in a rental unit, and are in a separate small room. The location at 58th street is quite convenient - practically right where Rt. 90 brings you onto Ocean Highway. There are plenty of retail shops, restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance and the boardwalk is a short ride south on Ocean Highway. This property feels like a home-away-from-home rather than a rental unit - I would certainly recommend it to my friends!
