The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed our week at the beach. This rental is small and the balcony view is wonderful.
The sliding screen door was broken and there was no small table with chairs in the kitchen area as was shown which made it difficult to eat in when the weather outside was yucky. In addition, the two chairs in the living room area are in white and both were pretty unclean but the sofa was fine to use. Over all are stay was nice because of the weather.
We appreciate our guest taking the time to share their thoughts with us. The home is scheduled for a deep clean, after which the slider will be replaced. The pictures do not show a table in the kitchen area; we apologize for any confusion there. Thank you!
Everything was great about this rental. But, entrance door was a little tough getting the lock box open and balcony door didn't lock. These are minor things with the great ocean view and overall great time.
The location of this little gem...right on the ocean...doesn't get any better. It was convenient to locations in Ocean City and in Bethany Beach. The simplicity of style in the condo made it very comfortable and relaxing! We didn't want to leave.
Many reviewers have commented on the lack of wi-if, but I found the biggest limitation to be the lack of any kind of dining furniture whatsoever. No table, no chairs, not even a wall-mounted counter in the small galley kitchen. This was a major inconvenience for my family. I have stayed in several condos in this unit, and am familiar with the typical ammentities and price range, and was pretty disappointed overall in the value here for the price.
The owner has opted to not have a dining table due to the small space. Thank you!
We went for the weekend and had a great time. Room was clean. Only complaint is the pool was only open 10-6.
The place was clean and the view beautiful! I had a great time!
The view from here can't be beat. I awoke every morning to stunning ocean views and fell asleep at night to the lull of the waves crashing on the shore. We were a party of two adults and three children. Beach access was convenient and the pool was a nice feature.
Very comfortable and home like, would stay again.
So funny because he absolutely loved our stay here. Super convenient to everything and a great View! A warning the queen bed pull-out is incredibly uncomfortable so bring something to put on top of the mattress if it's something that's going to be used for a person during their stay. Some things were born but nothing unrealistic. Love that it had a Keurig and one-and-a-half baths. We can't wait to stay again soon.
My husband and I stayed in the condo during the month of September in 2017. We absolutely loved the place. It was surreal being able to wake up and eat breakfast overlooking the ocean on the balcony. The condo was very comfortable and very nicely decorated. It is easy to get very tacky when doing beach decor but it was very nicely done. The condo is a bit far from the boardwalk but we were looking for that- it tends to get quieter the further away from the boardwalk you stay. We couldnt hear any neighbors so our stay was very quiet- even when we were out on the balcony. The kitchen was nicely stocked. During the beginning of September the water was still warm so we were even able to get some ocean time in! We are not planning on coming back for the next few years (we have other traveling we want to do!) but we definitely want to come again and we hope this place will still be available in a few years! We would highly recommend staying here.
The unit is dated, and has a few quirks. Needs new doors- patio, laundry and closet we're coming off the rails. Carpet needs to be deep cleaned or replaced. Pool attendant wasn't very kid-friendly, it's a shame since it's so family friendly. Bathroom wasn't cleaned properly upon check-in, and all you needed was a $3 shower curtain from Walmart so that we didn't have to use one that was moldy.
Otherwise location was great and Garrett from Vacasa was so accommodating and receptive. He was quick to help resolve any issues.
The shower curtain has been replaced. The other items will hopefully be taken care of this winter since we are working with the owner on a much needed face-lift.
Awesome unit facing the beach. Overall 5stars for location. Unit etc all was great. Vacasa or someone needs to do something about check in at 4 pm and check out at 11. 5 hours to turn the place over . I would think at least check in at 3. Other then that great, vacasa was very helpful. Enjoyed the stay!
loved the view loved the pool
Loved the location of this condo and it was pretty well equipped, but it had lots of quirks which made me feel that I over paid for this rental. The pluses also include very comfy beds and nice towels, linens, furnishings, and the basics for preparing light meals. The cons included no beach supplies, slow draining tub and mildewed shower liner, and a variety of little annoyances like drawers off runners and lightbulbs that were out.
(1) Nice apartment, oceanfront - views, breezes, sunrises. Fantastic!
(2) Towels and linens plentiful and clean;
(3) Pretty well-stocked kitchen with utensils, pots & pans, china and cutlery (maybe TOO much?!).
That said, the interior needs significant work.
(1) Beds: Mattresses were rather uncomfortable for us (others may have different opinions). Always awoke with back and neck pain;
(2) Wi-Fi! ; You CANNOT have a rental without Wi-Fi internet access these days. Please join this millennium;
(3) Kitchen needs to be gutted and rebuilt. None of the drawers operate correctly - broken rails, broken cabinetry, just a mess. The coffer maker takes up way too much space on an already limited countertop. A simple, smaller coffeemaker is sufficient;
(4) Electrical system requires upgrading. Cannot plug the hairdryer into the socket in the bedroom bathroom, because the door frame interferes. using it elsewhere pops breakers. Many outlets are not secure - I mean that they physically move into the wall when you try to plug something in. UNSAFE!;
(5) We could have done with a few less tscotschkes on the tables and stands (they take up valuable horizontal space), and a little more investment in upkeep of the actual property;
(6) Dishwasher is incorrectly installed, and tips over onto the user when one opens the door;
(7) Put in a table and chairs! Considering the number of dishes and cutlery there, there's no place to sit down and eat!
(8) No available pantry space, as all of the (falling-apart) cabinets are filled with stuff. there is no place to put a box of cereal, even!
So, although in a great location, and generally clean and efficient, the property is in need of significant repairs and upgrades to meet today's standards.
We are disappointed to see such a lengthy list of issues. The property manager agrees the home needs some work and will be taking this review to the owner for them to use when considering improvements.
Don't plan to utilize the sofa bed. You feel every single spring. The condo really only sleeps 4 max. However, breathtaking view and good location.
Love the locationa and all the surrounding seafood. We were recommended to eat at phillips seafood buffet. All you can eat and all the variety of seafood youcan think of. We didn't make it to phillips as our stay was short. But definately next time.
We loved the place. Plan on renting again
Nice and quiet beautiful views.
It was all about the location and view. We had a great time and would come back again.
Nice place right on the ocean!
Winter weekend get away for two best friends. We were looking for a quiet, beachfront location for a very quick girls get away. That's exactly what we got. The representation of the condo online was consistent with what we found. We could sit in the living room, sip wine and see the beautiful view right out the window. Condo was clean, beds comfortable, and all our needs were met. We appreciated the full kitchen and prepared all of our meals onsite. Someone took a lot of care in decorating the condo to make it feel welcoming and "beachy." Plenty of supplies - dish soap, paper towels, trash bags. Elevator was nice feature. This condo would be great for a couple or small family. It sits right on the MD/DE border, and is far away from the chaos of the busy center of Ocean City. We had a few questions during our stay and the host Garrett was exceptional at providing timely, appropriate response. His customer service was fantastic. Overall, great location, sturdy (a bit worn), clean, and comfortable condo. Only reason this is a 3 star rating vs a 4 or 5 is that the condo needs some updates (but the updates do not have a material impact on a great stay).
We really enjoyed our stay at Ocean Place in October! It was the perfect place to stay for a mother-daughter get away. Beautiful oceanfront view, great location, and overall very comfortable. The only recommendation we have is to add a small indoor dining table. We had a wonderful stay, though, and will definitely be back!
This unit is on the second floor which was the perfect location to view the beach. We felt like we were right on the sand. The décor was very nice - beach theme without being tacky - and everything you will need is supplied. The entrance door is tucked into a hallway which is nice if you need to set things down to open the door as you are not blocking the path for others to pass by. A half bath in the bedroom is very convenient and the beds and pillows were so comfortable. We loved the balcony! Perfect location for morning coffee and sandwiches in the evening. This area is away from the traffic and noise of the Boardwalk but only a 15 minute drive when you decide to visit. Dirty Harry's is a nice little local restaurant in walking distance with a full menu and bakery case. This could be a new favorite place for us to stay!
My daughter and I spent a long weekend in Ocean City and stayed here for 3 nights. Having the key in a lock box was very convenient so we didn't have to pick up or drop off a key. The condo was very spacious and comfortable. It was nice to have the half bath. The AC took 2 days to cool off the living area. We were lucky it was not a hot part of the year. The kitchen was fully stocked and we did not have to buy paper products as it was well stocked. It was nice to have a washer and dryer as well. The only downside was the condo was not very clean. Every dish we used had to be rewashed. The blender was a mess. I'd suggest looking into your cleaning crew and having someone check over their cleaning after guests leave.
We apologize that cleanliness was lacking and will be sure to look into the matter.
Stayed in the Ocean City off season, it was pleasant. Had a nice ocean view from the balcony. In general, had positive experience. The apartment is nicely furnished and with a good taste. Kitchen has all necessary utensils (well, the cut board can be added :-) ).
The view from the balcony was amazing, and the apartment was in good condition, right off the beach. Overall a very positive experience and I would certainly rent here again.
Very Nice !
Will be back !!
It is a perfect beach location with great views of the ocean right from the living room. Many restaurants within walking distance as well as miniature golf, ice cream and popcorn shops. Having coffee on the balcony while listening to and watching the ocean was mostly what I was looking for. The condo is very stylishly decorated and every little nicknack reveals tasteful selections. The place could have been cleaner and the full beds cannot accommodate two people comfortably. But there is a sofa bed in the living room that fits two people. It could use a face lift. The swimming pool is a decent size to take a dip but no ocean view. We had a nice stay even though we were there in the midst of the storm Hermine.
My husband and I stayed at this property for a long weekend. We were looking for a peaceful and relaxing trip and this condo was perfect for that. The balcony has beautiful ocean front views, where we sat each morning and drank our coffee. The condo itself was comfortable and had everything you needed. They even provided linens and towels. Vacasa staff, Garrett was extremely helpful and answered any questions we had about the property.
The view from the balcony was amazing, and the apartment was in good condition. Limited pool hours (10am-6pm) was disappointing. Overall a very positive experience and I would certainly rent here again.
Great place & excellent location! Was a first time trip to the beach for my 6 year old niece & 7 year old nephew and being right on the beach couldn't have worked out better!! When we arrived the keypad/key on the lockbox was missing....called the operations manager Garrett & he came over right away to let us in! Kitchen cabinets/drawers really need to be fixed or replaced but other than that it was a great little condo!
PS - go to Ponzetti's on 144 for some awesome pizza and Devito's on 143 for good subs!
Very nice, close to the beach and surrounding attractions! Would definitely stay there again and recommend for future guest!!
Perfect location Comfortable, clean. Kitchen needs a little work.
Would have stayed longer if available.
I love that this place provided things I need like dish liquid, napkins, detergent was available, had an ice maker in the freezer & every day things you need in the kitchen. Felt like I didn't need to such beside my groceries. Had a good time
The condo was very comfortable with a nice view of the ocean. Also the price was quite reasonable.
We enjoyed the quick access to the beach. The balcony was great, the condo was peaceful, not a lot of commotion, that you see down in the main portion of Ocean City.
I had a great experience here with my girlfriends this past weekend. It was right on the beach which was perfect. Very clean and convenient to everything! The only thing was none of us had great cell phone service in the place. Other than that, I definitely recommend it to others.
The place was great! Just wish we had more time
The Ocean Place was a great place to stay. We were ocean front and it was beautiful. Also we enjoyed how much stuff was around us, go carts, putt putt, a water park. Very cool! I would defiantly to back.
Beautiful home. We took advantage of the bus system - $3 all your ride for a 24-hour period. Great to avoid driving and parking and used the bus to travel down to the boardwalk. I would suggest the property offer Wi-Fi as that was the one thing that we missed during our stay. Thanks!
The location to the beach was great. The room was small but comfortable. The "supervisor" at the pool was odd. Him and the maintenance person were less than friendly.
Nice place. no sitting table to eat inside. All the main appliances included (stackable washer/dryer, stove, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, blender, iron, keurig 2.0). Plates, cups, utensils, included. outdoor, pool open from 10:30-6.,, 3ft to 8 ft.., awesome view of the ocean from the balcony.
We were early in season but still loved our time here. Beachfront, clean beautiful sand and water! We actually watched a family of dolphins swim by!! We would definitely stay again. A bit of a ride to boardwalk but worth it!
We were so pleased with this vacation rental. The condo was so clean. The view from the balcony was phenomenal. We ate every meal out on the balcony. The condo is only 20 minutes from the OCean City Boardwalk. Berlin, Maryland is another town you should visit. Make sure you stop by Coconut Bay Trading Co. Leo's Seafood Restaurant is great for crab cakes. We were told by a local about Leo's and weren't disappointed! We hope to come back one day to Ocean Place.
