About Laura from JL Ocean Dream

My husband & I got married right behind the Makai building in what is called the Sunset room. The convention center caters events there in the spring & fall. So the Makai has special meaning to us.

Laura from JL Ocean Dream purchased this condo in 2010

Why Laura from JL Ocean Dream chose Ocean City

The location is fantastic here with the island being so narrow. You can sleep on the bayside and walk a block to the ocean. The best of both worlds. The beaches are less crowded and very family oriented. And you can get to the boardwalk easily. The Makai has lots of amenities, indoor pool, billiards room, gym, sauna, outdoor shower. It's a great well maintained building. If you are going to or working at the convention center, you can't find anything better than us, we are right next door.

What makes this condo unique

We take great care of our condo and our guests. We want your vacation to be the best ever, so we do the work for you. You deserve a break! We supply sheets and bath towels so you don't have to carry all that with you. The beds are made already, so every minute of your vacation is pure vacation, no setup & move-in work. Parents deserve a vacation too. The condo is clean and well stocked. You will feel pampered for sure.

We get fantastic sunsets here.

Always a great time in Ocean City....

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very well equipped. The beds were comfy and we felt very at home. One thought about the pool, it could have been better maintained. We did not use it and thought the ventilation was poor. It would be great if pool rights to the Hampton Inn pool could be obtained. Overall we had great weather and the beach was the place to be so no complaints just an observation.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your vacation with us and enjoyed the condo. The Makai pool is located in an atrium style room and I assure you there is adequate ventilation, but it is an indoor pool. So there is the smell of chlorine and it is humid. The water is tested frequently and meets every standard, the pool is very popular, the pool decks have been recently recoated. We have not experienced any problem with the pool area maintenance ourselves, so I would be curious to hear more about your particular experience. We want everyone's vacation to be great and we will do our absolute best to accomplish that.

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with another couple during the Memorial day weekend it was awesome. Everything was great from the time we walked in. Exactly as the pictures are shown. It was clean, spacious very welcoming, bright and a great location. It was not too far from the boardwalk but we drove there as walking would have been too much. You could take the bus to the boardwalk if you like as well. The condo is located at a good walking distance to many places and restaurants. I enjoyed the all you can eat breakfast buffet at The Beach House Restaurant located at the Castle hotel it was good clean and affordable. The beach was located across the street which was great. If it rains you have indoor activities at the condo. Laura is really friendly and provides everything necessary for your stay and you do not need to carry with you all the extra stuff since its already provided to you. It is really an awesome place and I will stay here again in my next visit to Ocean City, MD and highly recommend it.

Amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were so lucky to find this place. We were having a house built in DE and our house in NJ sold in 6 days. With no place to stay and our new house not expected to be complete until December we were having a hard time finding a rental. Luckily we found Laura (owner) who was a god send. She was willing to work with us and rent to us without knowing when our house would be done. The place was home for us for 9 weeks and we loved it. It was comfortable, clean and had everything you needed to be at home. Laura was more than accommodating and never missed a beat when we had any questions. The condo is spacious, the beds more than comfortable and the full size bunk beds came in handy when we had family visit from out of town. Would highly recommend to anyone who wouldn't mind watching beautiful sunsets on the bay from the balcony and being a block from the beach.

Nothing but class

  • 5 of 5

This property is maintained far beyond a typical rental. The owners have designed and placed upscale furnishings all throughout. All of my inquires were immediately addressed, couldn't ask for a more response staff. Highly recommend to a family with desire to maintain the same comfort as home.

We are right next to the Convention Center, great location at 42nd street. Walking distance to Seacrets. Unit is bay front, and only one block from the ocean. New restaurant and bar right next door, right on the bay. Best crab place right across the street. Catch the bus to the boardwalk right outside the door.
