Great on-the-beach location: a few blocks up from the midway, but still an easy walk to the pier, restaurants, and shops. The 3rd floor balcony, overlooking 12th Street, has a clear, expansive view of the ocean. Since we stayed there off-season, the boardwalk was serene and nearly empty on the weekdays, and the indoor pool was closed.
The one-bedroom apartment has just about everything you could need, especially in the kitchen* (which is important to me - and the reason I prefer an apartment to a hotel). The bed was comfortable, and 2 pillows, a blanket, and a comforter were provided. (We brought our own sheets, towels, bath amenities, laundry detergent, and food.) There were 2 televisions: a small one in the bedroom and a medium-sized flatscreen with basic cable in the living room. There was an elevator and bellman carts which made it convenient for moving in and out. The apartment had its own utility closet with a small washer/dryer, hot water heater, broom, mop, and bucket.
The furnishings are functional, but far from fancy. There's a duck and boats décor going on in the living room and a golfer theme in the bedroom, but otherwise the furniture appears to be mismatched and dated. We also noted a couple of broken ceiling tiles in the kitchen.
Cleanliness in rented apartments is often related to how clean the previous tenants were. That said, we saw 3 small things that could have been improved with a good maid service: a couple of the bowls in the cabinet had been put away while still dirty; there was a hair on the mattress cover; and the kitchen floor behind the trash can was sticky.
*Kitchen amenities: stovetop and oven, full-size refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, pot holders, flatware, pots and pans, assorted plates/bowls/glasses, and dish detergent (hand and machine)
This was a last minute trip to OCMD for our family. We came across this condo and it worke perfectly for us. It has one bedroom with plenty of room and a queen pullout sofa(a bit uncomfortable according to the kids..but they are kids so they still had a blast) Everything we needed to run the kitchen was there. we saved money by eating in as often as we could. But being right on the boardwalk, we couldnt resist the beach food!! The pool at the condo was great, clean and well maintained. The owner was so easy to deal with and we really enjoyed our stay. The kitchen chairs were a little wobbly but that would not keep us from renting here again! Thanks so much for a great vacation! Oh and the view from the balcony is beautiful!! It faces the side street but still has a full ocean view!
