Beachside condo w/great ocean views - small dog welcome!

Watch the waves crash just feet from your front door when you stay at this dog-friendly Ocean City vacation rental. With the beach as your backyard, and great shopping, top-tier dining, and seaside activities at your fingertips, your Maryland vacation is sure to be memorable.

Located four miles south of the Delaware/Maryland border, and nestled in the rolling dunes of the Atlantic coast, Ocean City has something for everyone, from historic museums documenting the rich history of the area to carnival games at the boardwalk.

Stepping off the sand and into your beachfront condo, you'll be greeted by a bright and spacious interior. The open floor plan allows for plenty of light to pour in from the east-facing windows. Sink back into the comfy couch (that turns into a sleeper) and tune into your favorite cable show on the flatscreen HDTV. Stay in and plan a romantic movie night with a DVD or connect to the fast WiFi and stream something onto your personal device. (Please note that the cable package gets reduced to basic during the off-season - November through April.)

Turn on you favorite CD, pour a glass of chilled wine, and relax on the balcony as you feel the ocean breeze swirl around you. Whip up a quick snack in the fully stocked kitchen before you take a sunset stroll along the shore.

When the sun has sunk and sleep beckons, you'll be lulled to slumber by a king bed in the master bedroom. With plenty of storage space and rich soft bedding, you may never want to leave. In the second bedroom you'll find a queen bed as well a twin bunkbed. Up to eight guests can sleep here comfortably and there are two bathrooms down the hall as well.

The private washer/dryer will help you stay on top of any laundry that may accumulate during your stay. If it gets too warm you can take advantage of the central AC to cool things down. And you can bring a dog along, too, with an additional nightly pet fee (25-pound weight limit).

No matter how old you are, Ocean City has something for everyone. Four miles south of your getaway is the world-famous boardwalk. Ride the Ferris wheel or play carnival games at your leisure. Dine on classic American fare, including crab cakes, and make priceless memories. Rent a canoe, paddleboard, or kayak from Ayers Creek Adventures and head out into nature.

Let the sand sink beneath your toes as you take in the crisp sea air at this Maryland beachfront vacation rental.

The location was great. The condo is in need of renovations. The kitchen cabinets were in pretty bad shape and the appliances were old. It was also not as clean as I would have expected given the current Covid situation. There was what appeared to be red punch all over the bottom of one of the bedroom doors. For the price, I expected better.
Manager response:
Hi, Angela! Thank you for letting us know about your experience. We have followed-up with housekeeping and suggested some improvements to the owner. We hope to see you again!
Rodolfo O. Jul 2020
The apartment is ideally located, 50 steps from the beach in a quiet area. The kitchen is well equipped, the rooms comfortable, and the balcony is a great place to have coffee in the morning or watch the sunset. We will definitely return!
Connie M. Jun 2020
We loved the view of the ocean and beach from the living room. Just steps to the beach. Nicely furnished. Beds had good comfortable mattresses. I wish I had brought my own sheets for the king bed because the sheets were to small and slipped off leaving my head on the bare mattress. Glad we brought our own comforters. Kitchen is pretty well equipped. Beach has a lifeguard and is not as crowded as downtown. Close to restauants. Loved our stay.
Amir C. May 2020
We enjoyed every bit of our stay. The view is much better than we expected from the pictures considering it's a side view. You have a clear view of the ocean and you can see the bay on the other side as well.
Mark B. Oct 2019
Good place , dog friendly and beach view
JoAnn H. Sep 2019
This is a lovely condo. The entrance and elevator doesn't look too good, but don't let the fool you, the condo was great. There is a wonderful ocean view and bay view and a beautiful breeze if you open the sliding doors to the patio and the bedroom window. We had a very hard time with the lock, had to call the manager to get in when we arrived.Sometimes it opened very easily for me and other times I had to struggle. The only other thing that I would say is that I think 4 pm check in is a little late, especially off season when it isn't rented all the time. However, all in all it was a lovely place, we rented it again for next year.
Bonnie H. Sep 2019
Location, cleanliness, facilities (2b,2b), elevator, parking, Everything
Daria F. Jul 2019
I loved that we were right on the beach! House was well supplied with soap, toilet paper, paper towels, dishwasher pods and laundry pods which was much appreciated! Kitchen is old but well supplied with pots & pans, dishes, etc. Bedrooms are carpeted, but carpet looked relatively new and clean. Really appreciated having an elevator to get to 3rd floor with bags and luggage. Good restaurants in walking distance.
Brian D. Jul 2019
Nice view from the room, Elevator, close to secluded beach, comfortable furniture, plenty of towels
Christina G. Jun 2019
We loved how it was right on the beach, with a fantastic ocean (and bay) view from the deck.
William B. Jun 2019
Our family loved this place. A good bit of space, clean, full kitchen, etc. Our daughter loved the bunk beds. Excellent view of the beach. Balcony was very nice. Great location.
Upasana B. Jun 2019
Nicely kept property. 2 bathrooms are a great feature
Linda J. Apr 2019
This place was perfect and had everything needed for an easy get-a-way. The balcony on the side is great because it has a great ocean view, but also you could see right over to the bay without building blocking, so a great time to have happy hour drinks and watch the sunset before dinner. Very clean, came with sheets and lots of towels and toiletries. Loved it.
Pam S. Jan 2019
Great Time! Great ocean views! Great food!
Erin Z. Nov 2018
The place was right on the beach, close to a number of restaurants and very clean.
Linda K. Oct 2018
Great deck and right on beach. And can take my dog.
Mark B. Oct 2018
Nice place was as advertised. No complaints
Patricia S. Aug 2018
Sand Trap is beautiful. Perfect view of ocean. Very clean and home like atmosphere. We will stay here again.
Joan S. Apr 2018
Very clean, bright. Great price for being ocean-side. Quaint, romantic yet fun get-a-way!! Hope to be back next year.
Bradley J. Apr 2018
Well maintained and steps from the ocean.
JOSE S. Mar 2018
Other than the issues I noted above, the apartment is very well located with a nice ocean view. The building entrance and the elevator, however, look somewhat dilapidated and need some remodeling.
Jason H. Mar 2018
Nice condo. We appreciated the great views from the unit. Parking was easy in the dedicated spot. Bonus Pet friendly. We took several walks on the beach with our dog. Great place to relax in the off-season
David S. Nov 2017
The location was great. We could see the ocean and the bay from the balcony. We went off-season so that we could bring our dog and it was great. The beach was right there and we were able to walk it daily.
Steve K. Oct 2017
Awesome location, great view. Away from the boardwalk. A great place to unwind.
David F. Oct 2017
Second time we have stayed here off season since we like to bring our dogs. Unit has always been exceptionally clean and well setup. Area it is in is the narrowest part of OC so the population on the beach isn't too bad, much better than the high rise condos up the road. Building does not have any aux facilities, ie pool, game room, etc but is Ocean front but not what we look for. We enjoy it very much and would have stayed longer if it would have been available.
Bonnie H. Sep 2017
I have been going to this location for years! It is one of a few places that allow you to bring your dog! It also has a great view of both the ocean and the bay.
Judy W. Sep 2017
We could bring our dog which was very important to us.
Loved the beach front location.
Lots to do nearby.
Have stayed here 3 years. Will be back
Alicia S. Aug 2017
We highly recommend this place!
Miriah W. Jul 2017
We loved our stay! The location was everything for us as we took some family (two who have back/knee problems) as well as our almost 2 year old. It was awesome to have a short walk to get back for lunch, snacks, etc. Having two actual bedrooms was great to be able to lay down the little one while the rest of us chatted/watched tv, enjoyed the view, etc. One thing that I had questioned before we went that I think is useful to know if you have small children or dogs is that the spacing between the railings is quite wide so our little one was not allowed out on the balcony. Will recommend this place as well as return when we have another larger group coming along with us!
Suzanne H. Jul 2017
8 of us stayed there and loved every minute
Tracy T. Jul 2017
We were very pleased with the view from the balcony. Beautiful!
We sat and had our coffee every morning and watched the ocean.
We were able to take our dog on vacation for the first time and she loved it. She couldn't go out on the beach but she loved the balcony and taking walks in the sand of the dunes.
Yajsira C. Jun 2017
This was our second time coming to the sand trap. This condo is centrally located to so many entertainment but yet quiet enough when you just want to enjoy some peace and quiet. Access to the beach is steps away. We had beautiful weather this time around. Every morning and evening are exceptionally wonderful just sitting on the balcony. We didn't want leave, it's never long enough. We can't wait until next summer vacation.
Stephen K. May 2017
Very clean, comfortable and convenient flat adjacent to the beach. Dog friendly, too.
Erica H. Apr 2017
LOVE this condo! It is hands down one of the nicest dog friendly, ocean front places we've ever stayed. This was our second time renting this condo and will be back for a third and more. Very clean, very nicely decorated (Could use very minor updates - paint, mattresses, sofa bed mattress) but you can't beat the views, the location and the fact that it's dog friendly. You do have to go out on the beach for sunrise as the condo has a mostly southern facing view of the ocean, but you also get a bay view on the balcony. Our dog's crate fit perfectly in the bunk bed room and having two baths and washer was great! Can't wait for our next visit!
Steven K. Mar 2017
We had a wonderful time celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary. The view was awesome. A favorite summertime activity for us is reading a good book on the beach. We were able to enjoy the feel of just that from our own warm cozy living room.
Kelly B. Mar 2017
I was very comfortable there! Plenty of room to spread out. Our dog was very happy too!
Kelly Z. Mar 2017
Really enjoyed time and would definetly stay here again! Great location!!
Teresa R. Feb 2017
Very peaceful, great view, beautiful place, great location!
Colleen D. Nov 2016
Our family really enjoyed our stay on the beach. One can enjoy the sunset and sunrise from the balcony, even saw dolphins swim by.
Pamela S. Oct 2016
Our stay was once again very relaxing and enjoyable. Before VACASA, we had the pleasure of meeting the owners, Paul and Jessica. We have been enjoying the Sand Trap location for almost 15 years! Paul and his wife have been exceptional and wonderful and attentive if we ever needed anything. Everything in the house was accommodating and well stocked. I just have one comment as far as the price goes.......I find it amazing that when the posted daily rate to stay is $170.00/a day, what they don't include is everything else that you need to pay for during your stay, to include fees that they aren't responsible for (an extra handling fee from Homeaway plus Vacasa fees). Our daily price ended up being $289 a day/night. Maybe in the future we can get some type of discount for being exceptional tenants? If not, we will still continue to enjoy Sand Trap for many years to come.
Marita P. Oct 2016
Vacasa is a great site to for Vacation Rentals. My Original Booking was not available for me and VACASA arranged for a different unit and covered the additional costs.
Elaine F. Sep 2016
The unit was perfect for traveling with two young children and a small dog. The building was quiet and the beach was right there.
Bonnie H. Sep 2016
This is a nice spot you can see sun rise and sunset, ocean and bay. Balcony is a nice place to sit when it is windy it blocks the wind so you can sit outside. Very clean and has 2 beds and 2 baths, and an elevator! Plus owner lets you bring your dog!
Judy W. Sep 2016
Good view, nicely stocked kitchen. Need pillowcases for extra pillows. Had to hunt for outdoor hose key. 2 house keys should be given, not 1. 4:00 checkin too late, especially if you bring a pet. Love the location and condo. Have stayed there before, and will be back.
Kathy D. Aug 2016
Location was right on the beach and a short uber ride from the boardwalk (about 5-10 minutes depending on traffic). Location was very clean upon arrival and maintenance was very friendly and accommodating!
Cynthia L. Aug 2016
Good location and condo is really nice. Good ocean and beach view from balcony. Easy on line reservation process.
Jennifer Z. Aug 2016
This unit was much cleaner than previous pet friendly condos we have rented in OCMD. Quiet location and up to date.
Jay D. Aug 2016
We had a great week in this unit. There were 5 of us staying there, plus the dog (glad we could bring her). The 2 parking spots and the washer/dryer were a plus. The balcony is fantastic, nice views of the beach. Perfect location for beach access, but can also walk to a lot of stuff. If you're adventurous you won't need to drive much, unless you're going all the way down to the boardwalk. Overall, a great place for a beach vacation.
Barbara W. Aug 2016
Traveling with our 2 dogs, my mother and sister and this place was perfect. Nice balcony for the people and dogs to hang out on. Nice are around condo for dog walking. Great view of the ocean and beach as well as the bay. Lovely, lovely condo. We will be back!
Amanda B. Jul 2016
We had our mother there who is not actually able to get down to the beach. She was able to sit on the chaise lounge and enjoy the beautiful view of the beach and ocean.
Mathew G. Jul 2016
Overall I echo the positive comments about this unit that other reviewers have mentioned. The location is great, unit was in great shape, furnishings were nice, and everything was as advertised. Everyone I dealt with at Vacasa were very nice, helpful, and professional.

Some specifics that I haven't seen mentioned elsewhere:
- This unit includes two reserved parking spaces, this is a huge plus that I didn't see mentioned in the listing for some reason
- All linens (sheets, pillows, bath towels) are included, as well as small shampoos and soap. This may not seem like a big deal, but having done rentals where linens are not included, this is a big convenience
-The central air unit is in the living room closet and it is fairly loud when it kicks on. This wasn't an issue for us as we didn't have anyone using the sleeper sofa, but if you do, make sure they're not light sleepers.
-The bedrooms are inverted such that the master bedroom with the king bed does not have a bathroom, while the bedroom with the bunks and queen beds does. Again wasn't a bother for us, just FYI in case you care.
-The nightly rates don't include a hefty cleaning fee ($150) and booking fee ($50), however this is standard at any condo/beach rental organization, just FYI in case this is your first time
-As there are only two condos per floor, we kept our beach cart (loaded with the beach towels, chairs, etc) in the outside hallway, and were confident no one would mess with it, so that helped keep the inside of the unit clean and uncluttered.
-74th street is a great location, nice quiet block, and not too far from either end of town.

Overall, zero complaints, I would happily stay here again.
Alonzo F. Jul 2016
Overall, this location, amenities, and responsiveness of landlord was Great. I would stay there again and recommend this unit.
Caren W. Jun 2016
The apartment had everything we needed and was bright and clean. The balcony facing the water was spectacular, particularly at night. Stepping down to the beach was amazingly convenient and everywhere we wanted to go in the city was a quick uber ride or a leisurely walk as well. It's no resort or luxury suite but a great home away from home on the beach.
John A. Jun 2016
Great views and close to the beach
Kevin L. Jun 2016
Me and some friends needed a place for the long weekend down at Ocean City, MD. Came across this listing from a helpful agent at Vacasa and the rest was downhill easy. Did not have high expectations or a long list of requirements, but was pleasantly surprised by the property and enjoy its functionality. Best part...the balcony! And proximity to the beach. Almost felt like our own personal beach at times. Never crowded, even with Senior Beach Week in full swing. Close proximity to gas station, beer/liquor store, and several great restaurants. Linens/towels/sheets and full kitchen equipment provided. All taxes, fees, insurance, deposits included with the total cost. All and all a great experience and would return.
Lindsey T. May 2016
Everything about this booking and stay was effortless. Called and booked it within minutes, received details about the stay shortly after. Retrieved the key from the lock box upon our arrival and the place was lovely. Clean, comfortable and great view of the beach.
Joleen . Apr 2016
What a wonderful first time experience with this site. So pleased with the units cleanliness and amenities. Beautiful place right on the beach in a quiet community of low risers. Location is amazing, eateries, family fun and beach at your front door. Would definitely recommend this area to anyone wanting to experience
Debbie D. Apr 2016
Was very impressed with our stay. Will reserve again for future stays. Unit was very clean and comfortable!
Lisa B. Mar 2016
