Relax with a beautiful canal view, in our 3 bedroom 2 bath, pool side condo, just a short 1 ½ block walk to the beach. Our condo is conveniently located between 2 shopping centers, with restaurants, a movie theater, and grocery stores. When we go to the beach, we usually lay out in front of the Carousel Hotel, as they have a beach bar, hamburger/hotdog stand and public restrooms on their beach front patio. In addition they have an indoor ice skating rink and game room that is open to the public.
The kitchen is fully equipped, pots pans, toaster, coffee pot, microwave, dishwasher, and service for 8. There is a small light load washer, dryer, ironing board and iron.
The beds, 1 queen, 1 full/standard, and 3 singles are all made with pillows, mattress pads and quilts. You will need to bring your own bed linens and towels, or arrange for linen rental. There are TV’s in 2 of the three bedrooms. There is a TV and DVD player in the living room. A Redbox is only a block away at CVS.
Although I'm new to AirBnB I have been renting my unit for many years. Please see my personal references for reviews from previous renters.

There is a TV and DVD (It is NOT Blueray) player in the living room there is a Redbox at the CVS next to the Ocean City Square shopping plaza. There is a small light load washer, dryer ironing board and iron; you will need to bring your own detergent. The vacuum cleaner is in a bedroom closet and cleaning supplies are under the kitchen sink, if you need them. There will be extra keys for the condo next to the refrigerator if you need them.
When you arrive:
1.Please call me immediately if the condo is not clean or you see significant damage.
2.The pool key (large square shape) should be left on the key rack next to the refrigerator. If you do not see it call me immediately after you arrive or I will assume you received it. It will cost you $150.00 to replace. Please be very careful with it.
3.You will find parking passes on the bar please place them on the dash of your car while parking in the lot and return them to the bar before you leave. My parking space is closest to the condo. The one nearest the side walk is shared between me and the unit above on a 1st come 1st serve basis.
4. Ocean City strongly enforces its ordinance that no disruptive noises be made between 12 midnight and 7 a.m. call the police if there is loud noise coming from a neighboring unit.
The short version of our review is that we were very unhappy with our stay and would not stay here again. The positives are that it is two blocks from the beach, has a decent kitchen, one firm mattress, close to restaurants and shopping, the pool is nice, and condo is available from Sunday to Sunday. Negatives: the first thing you notice when you arrive is the torn screen door. The lock on the front door is hard to open. The children were unable to open the door even when it was unlocked because it was wedged too tightly to the frame.
When we entered the first thing that hit us was a bad smell. The condo smelled like mold/mildew. We bought spray air freshener right away and opened the windows but the smell returned throughout our stay. We found wet towels in the laundry but that wasn't the source of the smell. One of our party is allergic to mold and has asthma which hadn't bothered him in many months until the first night he stayed in the condo. Despite the fact that we were told that pets were not allowed, there was a dog bowl in the kitchen and the carpet next to one side of the master bed was stained and smelled like pee. The upstairs neighbors had a dog that barked for hours at a time day and night. These neighbors also smoked all the time which you could smell in the condo. That was annoying since we chose a nonsmoking condo.
There are many other minor problems. The lock on some of the bedroom doors were broken. You could lock the door but anyone shaking the knob can walk right in. There was also a broken lock on a supply closet which would allow small children access to cleaning supplies. The small rug in the master bathroom was stained and filthy. We moved it and put down towels rather than step on it. Many other parts of the condo were dirty. The master bathroom has no electrical outlet. Be aware that the bunk beds might not be suitable for younger children since they don't have anything to keep kids from rolling off the top bunk and falling in their sleep. The final experience we had with the condo was the AC broke on our last night. We woke up to a warm condo that got much warmer as we packed to leave. We communicated these issues to the owner as well as our overall dissatisfaction. We were told a maintenance person would come but that didn't happen. We have rented at least five different condos over the years in ocean city and this was the worst we have seen. We wouldn't take a chance with our future vacations by renting from this owner again.
Apartment was as described, walking distance to the beach. Relations with Linda were good and efficient. We spent a great week in Ocean City although we were not able to catch any crab ! (but we ate some)
Lisa was a pleasure to work with, and her place was very clean and cute! The price was extremely reasonable and the location was ideal. Would definitely return!
Lisa's Condo by the Sea was great! Very cozy and a wonderful location right across the street from the beach and nestled on the bayside. It was a perfect size. She also very kindly accommodated a last minute request, would highly recommend her to anyone else on AirBnB!
Thank you Lisa and Co!
I had a wonderful time with my family and enjoyed our vacation in Poolside Condo. Its location is wonderful and is very close to beach. Lisa is very helpful and respond very fast.
Lisa was very easy to deal with and has great communication if you needed anything. The place was great with the pool right outside the door and the beach a short walk away. Would stay again for sure!!!
Lisa was wonderful! Professional , friendly and easy to
Work with! The place is simple clean and perfect for
A relaxing fun beach trip. I even left my keys and
She is mailing them back! Thanks again Lisa! Awesome July 4th week
Mike and I are in our late 40's. We have 2 children, both college students at Penn State University. I work for an insurance company and Mike works for a county judge.
Mike's sister used Air BnB when they went to Paris last year and our daughter used it in Estonia and Croatia. They both had GREAT experiences and highly reccomended it! So when we went on vacation last spring we used it and loved it.
We came home and signed up our condominium at the beach! We really enjoy meeting the families and are so happy when they enjoy our beach house as much as we do!
