About Ken Gookin

My wife and I are graduates of the U. of Md. Grew up in the Northeast and have traveled extensively.

We have had rental properties in Ocean City and La Quinta, Ca. since 1973 . We live in Hershey, Pa. and spend the winters in La Quinta, Ca

My wife and I are retired and spend our time traveling and visiting our grand children & family

Ken Gookin purchased this condo in 1973

Why Ken Gookin chose Maryland

We have owned this property since 1973 and have seen many changes in Ocean City, Md. Our children and grand children have grown up at the beach and on the ocean and are now spending time raising their families in other states, but we still love Ocean City

What makes this condo unique

The building has 30 units and you can walk to the 2nd floor or take the elevator. We have had renters from Conn, Dela , Fla, Ind, Illinois, Mass, Mizzouri, Md, NC, NY, WV, Oh, Pa. RI, Va and Toronto, Canada that come and enjoy the privacy of a small building right on the beach with assigned parking. There are many owners that do not rent, but have enjoyed a long friendship with owners and our renters.

Great location. Excellent view.

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed staying here. Ate breakfast on the balcony every morning while enjoying the great view of the ocean. Beds were comfortable. Condo was clean and well stocked. Internet worked great. Easy walk to the beach, and your parking spot. Ken was great to work with, and responded quickly. Hoping to stay here again soon.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect, halfway to everything. Condo is spot on, bathrooms could use some work but the rest of the condo is spectacular. Already plan on renting same time next year, Ken is very responsive and security deposit was returned very fast. Great place for young kids, only one floor up and soooo close to the beach. Thanks Ken!!!!

A little bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time renting in Ocean City and we could not have picked a better place. Ken made the process so easy and offered excellent advise on places to eat and visit.

He was genuinely concerned that a good time was had by all members in my family. The condo was neat,clean and exceptionally located! Close enough to all the action yet far enough away for peace and tranquility. I look forward to renting this condo again.

Rivera family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent a wonderful week in Ocean City right on the beach in this wonderful condo. It was literally steps from the water with gorgeous views from the balcony. The unit was clean, comfortable, and accommodated my family very well. The boardwalk and activities for my kids where very close and easy to get to and there are plenty of restaurants to choose from within walking distance of the property. Mr Gookin made the process easy and without any complication. Thank you on behalf of my family. We had a great time.

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

Ken is great to work with, he is prompt in his replies and honest and friendly. This condo is a perfect location, you can sit on the beach and see the balcony, so close even the wifi signal was still present in the beach!!! Listening to the waves at night and enjoying breakfast on the balcony in the morning was wonderful. Kitchen is well equipped we cooked all our meals, were able to do laundry and enjoy all the comforts of home beats a hotel any day. We were sad to leave and will definitely return again. Thank you Ken for a great vacation
