The Makai is in a great location. The island is very narrow here and the beach is just across the street. It is walking distance to Seacrets for night club excitement, no driving.

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was my second time staying at this condo. Both times have been wonderful experiences. The condo has been immaculately clean both times. It's so nice that almost everything is provided for you. The condo is centrally located right in the middle of everything. Laura is such a pleasure to deal with. She is always very prompt with all of her responses. I enjoy this place so much I've already booked another stay for next year!

Lovely studio with amenities

  • 4 of 5

My daughter and I stayed in this beautifully styled and convenient studio condo. The kitchen was fully equipped and the bathroom large. We were very comfortable and located near the beach and bay. There are restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. The balcony does look over the coastal highway so it can be noisy when sitting outside. But it also provided some entertainment too. There is a nice view of the ocean too! Laura provides prompt and complete responses to any inquiry. I would definitely rent the same property or a different property from Ocean Dreams.

Great trip!

  • 5 of 5

I wasn't too interested in staying in a hotel because I wanted amenities and an indoor pool. When I found this I booked right away because it seemed perfect and it did not disappoint. It felt nothing like a hotel, but more like a home away from home. It was cozy, relaxing, and had everything I could have wanted. The bed and bedding was large, clean and comfortable. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need to make meals. The bathroom was clean and equipped with everything needed upon arrival. We seemed to be the only people in the building at this time of year. The indoor pool was a nice size, the sauna was really nice, and the billiards room was amazing. I would love to stay here again if I'm making a trip into Ocean City!

Owner's Response: Thank you Danielle. It is sort of special to have the whole building mostly to yourselves. I just love the off-season. I'm so glad you had a good time and thanks for sharing. :) Laura

This is the 3rd time I have stayed in this amazing studio. The place is always well cleaned and stocked so you don't have to worry about towels or linens. And not to mention the pillows are soooo comfy.

Laura, the property owner, goes above and beyond to make your stay organized. She always goes above and beyond for myself and my family. Looking forward to booking many more here!

The unit was very "homey".

  • 5 of 5

This was a great vacation. A time for three of us to just enjoy and relax. The unit was very inviting and all the comforts of home. I say enough about the owners. They were so easy to work with and very accommodating. Thank you so much for providing a well needed vacation.

Very nice!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for my husband and I to stay for a long weekend. It had everything we needed. Very nicely updated and the bed was extremely comfortable. The balcony overlooks Coastal Highway and the Makai is perfectly located. We will definitely stay here again.
