Ocean City Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-8)

All rates quoted are inclusive of taxes and cleaning. The 10.5% taxes are already included in the quoted rate. The only other charge is the $40 condo registration fee which is due in cash at check in and an Internet charge if you chose (the library across the street is a hotspot).

The Plaza is a direct oceanfront condo with oceanfront and bay views from my unit. Just steps to the ocean, it's 1200 sq. ft. of luxury vacationing. The Plaza, one of the best buildings in Ocean City. I rent ONLY on VRBO and HomeAway - no rental agencies or Craigslist.

Two bedrooms plus open den, two full bathrooms.

Fully equipped kitchen

Oceanfront master bedroom and living room

Bay views from second bedroom and den (this is not the case in every Plaza unit).

The building has a huge deck with lounge chairs on the ocean side for sunbathing. The outdoor heated pool is open Memorial Day through Sun Fest. The outdoor baby pool is located in the pool area. Relax on the unit's private balcony overlooking a lighted beach (lighted until 2:00 AM during the summer). There is a outdoor poolside bar/grill/lounge (Tiki Bar) and indoor restaurant (I recommend Crab Mountain). The indoor pool area is open until midnight and includes a whirlpool and a sauna.

Why The Owner chose Maryland

I had two criteria when we decided to buy a place at the beach:

Oceanfront: Some buildings are oceanfront, but the unit and view of the ocean from the balcony are not. I wanted a unit that was DIRECT oceanfront. I did not have to look around the end of the balcony or move my balcony furniture sideways to to get a glimpse of the ocean. I was at the beach and I wanted to see and hear the ocean.

Pools: I wanted a building with indoor and outdoor pools AND the indoor pool had to be operational year round! The Plaza has two pools and the indoor pool is open until midnight and the indoor pool area also has a sauna and whirlpool. The pool is prepared for the summer and is not open after Martin Luther King BD and opens again by President's Holiday weekend.

What makes this condo unique

I enjoyed drinking coffee on the balcony and looking and listening to the ocean.

Our OC, MD Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family was a guest in the Goodman condo at the end of Sept. 2016. My father in his 90's accompanied us. He walks short distances. The condo was easy for him to get around. The step in tub served him well with his physical limitations. With the condo being beachfront, we bundled him up and he sat on the balcony and could enjoy the sunrise over the ocean with us:) We all thoroughly enjoyed the balcony. Also, the sunset over the bay is spectacular! We reserved a beach wheelchair and dad could enjoy the beach with us. We had a total of 5 adults in the condo during the week and found we had ample room. We all agreed that probably 6 adults max would be appropriate for the condo. For a mix of adults & children you could probably get away with 8 individuals. Should your plans include using the den area for sleeping be aware that this area of the condo is very noisy. We have visited OC many times and visited some restaurants with which we are familiar and do enjoy. There are also good recommendations provided by the owners. We did experience what we were told was an historic storm in the area at the end of of our stay. We don't control the weather so if you can't go on the beach you just find alternatives. There are games on site and we played some games in the condo. We would like to commend the security staff of the Plaza. Many times when we came down to exit, if there was a security staff member present, they would open the door for us to exit with the wheelchair. One we would like to mention by name is Franklin. He was extremely courteous and offered us suggestions on how to get dad on the beach. We would stay in this condo again. We were pleased with the response from the condo owners and the extra tidbits offered by Joan. Would recommend you have your own source for internet service. When we inquired about the rental, the sales rep did not even recommend we get it stating it is poor service. That is something the Plaza should look in to and fix. In today's world, everyone wants to be connected (and reliably)! Overall, a very nice stay.

We had a wonderful stay at the condo and the view was beautiful. The owner of the property was wonderful to work with giving us information on good restaurants and places to visit. I have rented many times in Ocean City and this was the most enjoyable visit we have had. We will definitely be looking forward to visiting again.

Great experience!

The Plaza

  • 5 of 5

Views from the balcony are incredible. We were entertained by the dolphin show in the mornings. Then enjoyed the beach and the pool with a drink from the tiki bar. The condo was everything that was advertised and Joan was absolutely a pleasure to deal with. One brief phone call and I felt as if I had known her for years. I would absolutely recommend renting this property and we hope to enjoy more vacations there in the future.

First Family Vacation with Kids

  • 5 of 5

This couldn't have been any more accommodating. To wake up each day and have the views of the beach and ocean that it provided was incredible. The easy access to the beach and the multiple pools were great with the kids. When it rained, we had a blast in the indoor pool. We couldn't have been more comfortable or at ease and the owner was great to work with. We would stay again and highly recommend.

Room 1710

  • 5 of 5

Room was very nice, great view, comfy beds, etc. Only minor issue was frig would not cool 1st day but owners did everything they could to correct and immediately i might add. By Sunday it was working so not a big deal. Rooms and baths were nice and kitchen was loaded. Also easy in and out for unloading and packing. Lots of tvs and sound setup. Wifi network had to be paid for which was not known up front but bring a Roku or Friestick and it doesnt much matter. Plenty to do and close to everything but the noise and riff raff. Recommend highly and very nice people to deal with!
