Located ocean side on 78th street in midtown Ocean City, MD, Captain's Bridge #2 is just a few steps to the beach. No high rises and very little development on the bay side make 78th street very quiet and this beach is one of the least densely populated in Ocean City! It's a great spot for families with children and couples who want a truly restful vacation. Within walking distance to some great restaurants and a short drive to the grocery store. Bus service is terrific here.


Renovated in 2010, fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar and stools features refrigerator, dishwasher, oven with smooth top range, built in microwave, and garbage disposal. The kitchen also provides all utensils, plates, cookware, baking dishes, coffee maker, toaster, and blender.


The spacious living room offers a queen sleeper/sofa along with several accent chairs, custom made window treatments, LCD flat screen TV, DVD/VCR Player, and ceiling fan. Walk outside to the front deck and view the ocean over the dunes or sit in a rocker and enjoy the sounds of the ocean.


The dining area comfortably seats 6 adults and provides plenty of storage for napkins, extra food, etc. in the side table and corner cabinet. Alternatively, walk outside to the rear deck and eat your meal at the picnic table that seats 10. Slider off dining room was replaced in 2012.


The spacious master bedroom features a queen bed (replaced in 2012) and a full sized bed, 2 side tables and lamps, full length dresser and mirror, TV, ceiling fan, iron and ironing board, and a nice sized closet. Enjoy views of the ocean while relaxing in bed or walk outside to a private balcony with fantastic views of the ocean and distant views of the Assawoman Bay. You can enjoy both the sunrise and sunset from this one balcony while relaxing to the sounds of the ocean from the double chaise or one of the wicker chairs.


This cozy bedroom features a queen bed (replaced in 2012), side table and lamp, and a nice sized closet with a closet organizer containing drawers (closet organizer new in 2012).


This cozy bedroom is decorated in a nautical theme and features a pyramid bunk bed (twin over full) (new in 2013), side table and lamp, and a nice sized closet with a closet organizer containing drawers (closet organizer new in 2013).

Completely renovated in 2011 with new shower, sink, toilet, floor, walls, and fixtures.


2 private parking spaces in the rear provide stress free parking. Additional first-come-first-served private parking spaces are also available in the rear. Public parking is available on the street in front of the building.


Original pine hardwood floors throughout (with area rugs for comfort), tongue and groove pine beamed ceilings add character to this spacious town home. A warm private shower in the rear provides comfort when rinsing off after returning from the beach. From the shower, walk up several steps to the back deck and store your beach equipment in the outside storage area. You enter the house from there to return to the comfort of home.


We have a lot of pride in our property and want all of our guests to have a very comfortable stay. We strive for a very clean, up to date, well decorated property.

Why Debbie and Karl Dagg chose Maryland

Our parents owned a condo in Ocean City. They took it off the rental market the summer of 2009; we were able spend some time there with our 3 kids. They were at an age when going to beach was finally manageable. We really enjoyed our trips and considered purchasing a unit of our own as theirs was being sold. It was just an 'dream' and one that we thought wouldn't happen for a long time. We ended up stumbling on this townhouse. It needed a lot work; it was in great condition, just very dated. We fell in love with the uniqueness of the unit with it's beautiful hardwood floors and beamed ceiling and the proximity to the beach couldn't be beat. With 3 young kids it was ideal. We ripped up the 30 year old carpets, renovated one of the bathrooms, and had the kitchen renovated. It is now a very comfortable and charming place to stay. We have done many additional renovations since that first year!

What makes this townhome unique

We make many trips to and from the beach during the day. It's no big deal because our unit is so close. When our kids nap we relax on the double chaise lounge off the master bedroom and listen to the ocean. We don't feel tied to the house; we are still enjoying the outdoors and the beach while relaxing on the deck. We love that the street is relatively quiet with no high rises and no development on the bay side.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just had to let you know how much we appreciate the pride you and Karl take in your O.C. home. Your kitchen is fully stocked with everything we could possibly need. Your decorating is extremely tasteful – I believe I mentioned how nice it was to have table top space to put our stuff. We didn’t have to re-arrange a thing to accommodate our family. I love the hardwood floors too. Carpeting does not hold up very well in beach homes I think. Hardwood floors look nicer and are easier to clean.

Also, we love the location and the parking availability – these things are very important to us. And we appreciated the amenities provided like paper products and soap. Nice not to have lug all of that stuff with us. Much easier to just replace the items we used.

We had a great week at your place and the weather was very good. Started out chilly but got increasingly warm as the week progressed. I know it’s a whole year away but I can’t wait to come back.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We love this place. It's the perfect get away with all you would ever need. It's well maintained, clean and everything you could think of is there Its a home away from home so cute and cozy... I would highly recommend it and have been going there for years.... Every time we go it's one of the best experiences we could ever ask for and more... So close to the beach and the ocean waves you can hear from the house... The owners go above and beyond their call of duty to make sure everything is in order. As always it is.... A very wonderful beautiful home...

Great End of Summer Week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Captain's Bridge #2. The house had everything we could have wanted in a vacation property and the close proximity to the beach was great for everyone, but especially the little ones since we could come and go during the day with them. The house was very clean and well stocked and the decks on the property were spacious with great views of the ocean. We happened to be there during the harvest moon, and the sight of it shining on the ocean from the upper deck was amazing!

It was interesting how quickly even the little ones in our party felt at home. Thank you Karl and Debb for letting us rent your property. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a cozy beach house about as close to the water as possible. The location was very convenient to restaurants, stores and the bus line, which was great, and in a less crowded part of OC. We chose this property because of all the positive reviews and we weren't disappointed! Thanks again!

Great value

  • 4 of 5

Midtown location is our favorite. As close to the beach as you can be without ocean front rates. Owners are easy to work with and their home was clean, had enough space for our family and was very welcoming.

It's been several years that we've stayed at CB2 and we look forward to it every year. It is a wonderful beach house and you cannot get much better when it comes to location. We are sad to leave at the end of the week!

Clean, beachy, convenient and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second summer staying at this house. Couldn't wait to get back again this year. The upper deck is the icing on the cake. Sitting up on the deck watching the waves and enjoying the ocean breeze. Kitchen is fully equipped for any meal you need to make. Will be back. The owners are great to work with!
