Each luxury floor has 3bd/3bth, sleeps 12, 2400 sqft. Take 1, 2 or all 3 floors
Gigantic, classy, beautifully decorated family condos, at the best boardwalk location, with hotel style conveniences. We are luxury all the way!
Expandable from a 3bd/3bth home that sleeps 12, to a 6bd/6bth home that sleeps 24, to a 9bd/9bth home that sleeps 36, just by adding floors. Each floor has the same layout, same price, but unique décor. Each floor is private from the others. The pictures are of one floor, the 3rd floor. Our online rates are per floor.
Please inquire before booking for reservations of more than 1 condo, so you can check on availability. For weeks that show up available we have at least 1 condo available, but not always all 3.
We are perfect for multigenerational family gatherings. We do not rent to adult party groups. We are top of the line, extremely well-kept, perfect for the discerning traveler who appreciates quality, convenience and a safe, clean environment. We are not your normal OC condo, not by a long shot.
Our location can't be beat. Our front deck overlooks the boardwalk, great for people watching, hanging out & sunrises. The back deck is perfect for sunsets. Go right out your door & hit the beach or stroll the boardwalk. You are right ON the beach, overlooking the boardwalk. Open both deck doors & let the ocean breeze blow through.
Each condo is H.U.G.E. Inside we have 2400 sqft of living space on each floor. That's a lot of space for living. (Most 3 bdrms are 1700 sqft, just sayin').
All of our condos come with hotel style conveniences without the hotel style price. The beds are freshly made with 100% cotton sheets, 400 thread count or better. Always fresh & clean I guarantee it. And we provide bath towels. The only thing you need to bring is your beach towel...and clothes of course.
We are VERY clean. I am there personally between every guest, working beside my cleaners, to guarantee your condo is tip top for your vacation.
Our condos come with everything. We supply most normal house items for your convenience (detergents, cleansers, paper products, garbage bags, blow dryers, and much more). We restock between every guest. We have everything you need to feel cozy and comfortable, and then some.
Staying with us is special. Our golden rule, we treat you how we like to be treated... and we like to be treated nice. Our goal is for you to relax, refresh and reconnect. So your family has great memories to share, relive and return to next year, and the next year, and the next year. You get the picture. When you stay with us, it's better than owning. We take care of everything for you.
We are setup for larger groups and we pamper you all. Again we sleep 12 per floor, although less per floor is more comfortable.. Our huge dining table seats 12 with 4 more at the breakfast bar on the 2nd & 3rd floors. Or for the 4th floor it seats 8 with 5 at the breakfast bar.
We have TVs in all rooms with premium TV and cable channels. We have free Blast! speed wifi. There are board games & books for rainy days.
Our kitchen is fully stocked with everything you can imagine and lots of it. Pots, pans, glassware, dishes, bakeware. You just bring food & drink.
We have parking for 2 cars in our lot across the street, per floor. The West OC Park & Ride is just across the Rte 50 bridge and a great FREE place to park extra cars during your stay. Very convenient, and yes, free.
Enjoy all OC has to offer: sunning, boating, fishing, biking, swimming, golf, puttputt, arcades, go carts, Assateague.
Please inquire for more info. Because our floors can be subdivided, you will need assistance with multi-condo reservations. I am always happy to help. When you stay with us, you stay with friends.

About Laura from JL Ocean Dream
My husband first came to OCMD as a high school student, and fell in love with the place. I grew up in Texas and used to drive to Corpus Christi to camp on the beach whenever I felt the need for an escape, so I was a beach person too. When we met later in life, he brought me to OCMD for a weekend, and well, it was cool. I'd never been to a place quite like it, I liked the non-shi-shi feel, but still with restaurants and entertainment. It was homey. Then we happened to find Somerset @ 2nd, and Wow, what a place. Neither of us ever imagined we might own something right on the ocean. It was like a dream come true.
Laura from JL Ocean Dream purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Laura from JL Ocean Dream chose Ocean City
Somerset @ 2nd is in a perfect location. On the boardwalk at 2nd street is just far enough from the inlet to feel sophisticated, but close enough to everything to be right there. The boardwalk deck is fantastic. We just sit there and watch the people go by, hang out and feel lazy and energized all at the same time. And of course you are right ON the beach, we are oceanfront, it doesn't get any better than that. The condos are HUGE, I mean HUGE, so we knew we could fit the whole family. It was perfect.
What makes this Condo unique
I love the mornings on the deck. The sun rising over the ocean is majestic. There are usually people biking down the boardwalk, and early walkers/joggers. It is very peaceful and full of promise for the day.

Great condo - Amazing owner/manager !!!
First, the condo is amazing. Clean, modern, all amenities. We were a group of 8 men away for a weekend -- we had plenty of room - great spaces for gathering/getting some quiet time - wonderful ocean front location (doors open/ocean breeze/ocean sounds)! When we closed up the doors - silence. We did not hear our neighbors or the boardwalk while the doors were closed.
Kitchen and baths are modern - kitchen is FULLY stocked - right down to all of the utensils and coffee grinder! That was great for us - we ended up cooking most of our meals (sorry restaurant owners) and spent our mealtime connecting as we all ate together at the very large (seats 12+) dining room table.
We have not stayed in other units at Somerset - but already know we prefer 201 - many of us are smokers and 201 has a larger balcony/lanai oceanfront than 301 or 401.
Laura was outstanding to work with. She has a complete and very thorough package that she sent as soon as she received our payment. Very detailed instructions with photos to help us locate the property and parking on arrival. There are VERY SPECIFIC instructions about how to leave everything on checkout ... NOT COMPLICATED ... we followed the instructions and we had our security deposit refunded the next day.
We have already booked for 2018 and look forward to a long relationship with Laura and her husband.
Note: We did call about one plumbing issue during our trip - Laura offered to send someone immediately - it was minor and we were fine working with it "as is" and I'm sure she's already had it fixed by now ... I just cannot say enough how impressed I am with her responsiveness and ease ... It was a great experience for us.
It was a pleasure to have you stay with us this spring. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We take it as a great compliment that you have already reserved your dates for next year. Our guest repeat rate runs about 75%, and we're proud of that. So, please consider us your beach home, whenever you want a beach home that is. We'll keep the place nice for you between visits. We look forward to seeing you again in 2018!
Thanks so much
Best property in Ocean City
We travel extensively, and while our preferred mode is five-star hotels, we sometimes go the "self-catered" route, staying in privately owned vacation rentals. About once every three years, we come to Ocean City during Easter Break for a quick family getaway. At the risk of sounding jaded, I must admit that it takes a lot to impress us. We've experienced every level of vacation rental, from the rustic cabin on a secluded New York lake-front, to an ocean-front villa in Hawaii. We've stayed in several "upscale" rentals in Ocean City over the years - but none can compare to this property. Every detail has been lovingly addressed by the owners, making the unit feel more like a home than a vacation rental. We genuinely felt like Laura's guests, from the moment we inquired about the property until the days after we checked-out. She made the rental experience easy and comfortable - and the accommodations were as spotless and sparkling as any Four Seasons suite. There were only three of us on this trip - but the unit could easily accommodate a dozen people without feeling cramped - and the Boardwalk location makes for great sunrises and people-watching from the balcony. Truly, this is a gem.
I'm so pleased you enjoyed your vacation and that we exceeded your expectations. It is so thoughtful of you to take the time to write such a nice, thoughtful review. It is rewarding to hear, truly, so thank you. I think I'm blushing. We'd love to see you again in 3 years... or sooner if you are in the neighborhood. You are always welcome!
Thanks so much
Great location, Perfectly furnished and equipped.
Great location and very nice place. We had everything we needed for a great beach trip. My brother in law is a bit of a kitchen nut - and he was raving about how well equipped the kitchen was in terms of the quality and availability of tools, pots, etc. My elderly father in law really liked the elevator and boardwalk access - and he got confident enough that he even went out once without his walker or a wheelchair - which is a big deal for him. There is everything you need right on the boardwalk within a block or two, and our teens loved the freedom of being able to go out for a stroll or to the beach and just use the door pin to get in. We will be planning to come back.
Thank you for writing such a nice review. I'm so glad everyone enjoyed themselves, and the spring weather was definitely a WOW! Being on the boardwalk is perfect for fast & slow movers alike. And even non-movers, the deckers I call 'em. :) I'm glad your family "cook" enjoyed the kitchen. We're perfect for traditional family holidays also, just sayin'. Our home is your home, and we're open all year.
Thanks so much Laura
Clean and comfortable
Laura was wonderful in accommodating us last minute as our previous vacation plans had fallen through. The apartment was clean and very comfortable. It was huge and well appointed. Other than a few groceries and personal items, we needed nothing - so much attention to the little details of things you might need. Having 2 parking spots so close was super convenient. We have stayed in many places in many countries in our travels and this apartment is right up there with the best. Feel free to book this with confidence that the arrangements are easy and no fuss, including getting into the apartment. It is a great location, especially during the busy summer months as you are right on the boardwalk close to everything.
Thank you Kimberly for such a nice review. It was a pleasure to host your last minute spring outing, things always have a way of working out. And you certainly know how & when to travel. Spontaneous spring & fall getaways, to Ocean City's boardwalk.... there is nothing better. Those in the know, know to visit us then. Thanks so much, Laura
Great place to stay!
The owner was great to work with and the condo is better than the pictures. It is in a great location with loads of space and everything you need for a great stay in OCMD.
Hi Bill Thanks so much for the nice review. We're here when you need us ...but not when you don't. :) We'd love to see you again sometime!
Amazing Vacation Home!!!
This is an absolute gem of a house. Way better looking than the pictures. Extremely spacious, tons of storage space. Very well stacked kitchen. Three spacious beautifully decorated bathrooms.
Everything in the house is high end and very tastefully decorated. And nothing can beat the location. Right on the Boardwalk. Close to everything and Oceanfront view!!!!
Icing on the cake was our wonderful host Laura. Laura is the most professional and prompt host that I had the pleasure of dealing with. She gave prompt and detailed instructions. Was always available and extremely polite. We were there during Hermine and she kept sending updates and kept reassuring us that we are going to survive the storm.
We shared the house with three families and there was enough space for everyone. The house has enough board games that all of us were able to entertain ourselves with those and the TV with premium channels and did kill each other in spite of being stuck indoors for whole of Saturday.
We will definitely come back here. Another plus point is the house is 18 minutes away from Assateague!!
It was a pleasure to have you stay with us!
Thank you so much
Ocean City Maryland. Primarily a summer family beach destination. The condo is located right on the boardwalk at 2nd street in a modern low rise building. Easy access to the boardwalk, beach, bay & Assateague island. A new skateboard park is 2 blocks away, bayside. There are tons of family & kid activities in summer. Also great off season. It has a quiet sleepy feel in fall & spring. We love it then. In addition, the condo offers a unique alternative to a hotel if visiting or working the convention center which is at 42nd street. For even larger groups & family holidays, please check with us to see if we can accomodate you! Other Activities: boardwalk, beach, arcades, amusement park, sunning, biking, boating, putt putt, go carts, golf, jet skis, skate board park
