Ocean City Condo Rental Photos and Description

Queen Bed & Twin Daybed. Great Balcony w/Ocean View! Linens & bath towels incl

Best studio in Ocean City, with ocean views from the balcony. We have a queen bed, a twin daybed and a huge HDTV. Free high speed wifi and all premium channels (except in winter). The building has an indoor pool, sauna, gym, billiards room, outdoor shower. Head to the bay promenade, sit on the benches & watch the sunset. Beach is one block away just across the highway. Walk to Seacrets, dance 'til you drop, and never have to drive. Yes, you are in heaven.

You are truly on vacation with us. We provide quality sheets the beds are freshly made before you arrive. We provide nice bath towels, but you do need to bring beach towels. And we provide almost all household items; toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags, detergents of every kind, dryer sheets etc. There is nothing you will want. There is a washer/dryer in the unit and a hair blow dryer in the bath. We have a fully equipped kitchen. We're way better than a hotel. When you stay with us you stay with friends.

About Laura from JL Ocean Dream

My husband & I love ocean city, and we got married right behind the Makai building in the Sunset Room. We ended up with a few Ocean City condos, including another in the Makai (unit 116 - sleeps 6 - Home Away listing 3482366) and one on the boardwalk (Somerset @ 2nd - sleeps 12 - Home Away listing 237433). We love them all. But Makai unit #510 is special to us, because it's just for us. When we stay here it's just about us. It's great.

Laura from JL Ocean Dream purchased this condo in 2008

Why Laura from JL Ocean Dream chose Ocean City

The island is very narrow at 42nd street so the bay & ocean are both very close. All the events at the Convention Center are steps away. The beaches are less crowded and it is very relaxing. We like to sit on the bay benches and watch the sunset. Seacrets is walking distance, the bus will take you to the boardwalk, the best crab place is across the street and the new Tap House is a block away on the bay. We are perfect for young families with a baby or one kid, couples of any age or even 3 friends. Come visit us.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is top of the line. We provide sheets & bath towels for you, we have all basic household items, soaps, blow dryer, detergents, paper products. All you have to do is show up and have a good time. We take care of the rest. It's like you are borrowing a friends condo...and you are.

Magnifique studio!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons adoré ce studio. Propre et bien aménagé, il répond à tous les besoins pour deux personnes. Bien situé, magnifique levé de soleil, vu sur la mer et près de terrains de golf, ce studio est accessible et comporte de nombreux avantages.

Je le recommande chaleureusement. Louise, Québec city.

Cozy Clean and Comfy!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this studio! It had everything we needed. We were able to see the sunrise each morning right from our balcony which was a huge plus. This was our first time ever renting a vrbo or home away rental and we couldn't have asked for a better owner to deal with or cleaner condo! We were so pleased we went back two months later and rented her other condo for the car show weekend. I definitely recommend this comfy and clean studio. I know we will be back again for sure.

Perfect Studio for a Couple

  • 5 of 5

The listing was completely accurate! Owner was great to work with and provides you with everything you need for your stay. Building is nice and secure and the location is perfect- restaurants and shops close by. Would highly recommend On the Bay Seafood right across the street for crabs and Belly Busters for takeout. The condo has beautiful granite throughout, is well stocked, clean, and everything works perfectly. If I had to say something negative, it would be that the bed was a little uncomfortable but this is an easy fix and does not affect all the greatness this property has to offer. Would definitely recommend and stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review, I truly appreciate the 5 stars and your kind words. But I am interested to hear more about the bed, this takes me by surprise. Your comfort and the comfort of the bed is extremely important to us. My husband & I stayed in this condo last night (7/31) and we were very comfortable. So I am curious to understand this better. Was it too hard, too soft, was it the position of the bed, was the frame too low....? Can you please tell me more?

Very Nice.

The property overall is very nice, clean and well maintained. The actual unit is also very nice. Well maintained and the basics are all taken care of. I appreciated the excellent cable package (even some premium channels). Laura was wonderful to deal with. Everything about the trip went smoothly.

We are located at 42nd street on Coastal Highway, right next to the convention center. The island is very narrow here so we are on the bay and across the street from the beach. New restaurants, close by. Perfect for convention center events.
