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 Maryland

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. I get a cup of coffee, head outside and watch the sun come up over the ocean. There are usually people biking down the boardwalk, and early walkers/joggers. It is very peaceful and full of promise for the day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

For the past two summers, my family and I have had the pleasure of vacationing in Ocean City, MD, staying at Somerset @2nd. We had a fantastic time each summer. We couldn't ask for a better place to stay. Not only was the condo beautiful, but it has all the comforts of home. We did not need anything other than food. My husband and I traveled there with our daughter & son-in-law, our son and daughter-in-law, and our 5 grandchildren. We all loved it. It was spacious, comfortable, clean, and everything seemed to be new and high quality. We had wonderful weather enjoying the beach and making great memories. I would highly recommend this as a great place for a perfect family vacation . It is definitely our favorite place to be when we go to Ocean City.

Best property in Ocean City

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Hi Camille 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 Laura

Great location, Perfectly furnished and equipped.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Hi Roxanne 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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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

Amazing Vacation Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Amazing condo - wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

The condo is gorgeous. Perfectly decorated, comfy and classy furniture and high end linens. In fact, my wife went out and bought the sheets that were on the beds as soon as we got home! Laura couldn't be any more accomodating. We will come back for sure!

Map

Ocean City Maryland. Primarily a summer family beach destination. The condo is located right on the boardwalk at 2nd street in a 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
