About Laura from JL Ocean Dream

My husband & I got married right behind the Makai building in what is called the Sunset room. The convention center caters events there in the spring & fall. So the Makai has special meaning to us.

Laura from JL Ocean Dream purchased this condo in 2010

Why Laura from JL Ocean Dream chose Ocean City

The location is fantastic here with the island being so narrow. You can sleep on the bayside and walk a block to the ocean. The best of both worlds. The beaches are less crowded and very family oriented. And you can get to the boardwalk easily. The Makai has lots of amenities, indoor pool, billiards room, gym, sauna, outdoor shower. It's a great well maintained building. If you are going to or working at the convention center, you can't find anything better than us, we are right next door.

What makes this condo unique

We take great care of our condo and our guests. We want your vacation to be the best ever, so we do the work for you. You deserve a break! We supply sheets and bath towels so you don't have to carry all that with you. The beds are made already, so every minute of your vacation is pure vacation, no setup & move-in work. Parents deserve a vacation too. The condo is clean and well stocked. You will feel pampered for sure.

We get fantastic sunsets here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Even though Unit #116 appeared as advertised, the condo still managed to exceed my group's expectations - beautifully furnished and decorated, and incredibly clean. Furthermore, Laura's client service and overall responsiveness from beginning to end was absolutely second-to-none! Highly recommend the overall experience to anyone seeking a stress-free and relaxing getaway to Ocean City, Maryland

Classy and impressive

  • 5 of 5

This is not your typical rental condo where the owner stocks the place with cheap furniture from Ollie's' clearance aisle. This place is like a luxury hotel. The decor, furniture, appliances, everything were very high quality. It reminded me of the St. Francis hotel in San Francisco, CA. We didn't mind coming home early in the evening and just hanging out, it is THAT nice. The beds are also the most comfortable we've ever slept in. The owner is very easy to communicate with and responsive. This will be our Go-To for OC!

Owner's Response: Hi Randy Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. I'm so glad you were comfortable and enjoyed just hanging out. There is so much to do in OC, sometimes it's nice to have an excuse to just do nothing and savor the moment. We'd be delighted to be your go-to vacation home whenever you're headed this way. We'll keep things nice for you, and we're open all year round. Thanks so much Laura

Lovely Bayside Condo with short walk to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Great property, great owners! Communications with Laura were efficient, clear and easy to follow. The condo was very clean and the philosophy of a space share by the owners, gives a completely different experience than other condos we have stayed in Ocean City. So many amenities! Linens, towels and a well stocked bathroom, paper/plastic supplies in the kitchen in addition to dinnerware, a large selection of pots/pans, and even a pizza stone. We really needed nothing more than our suitcase of clothing, beach towels/chairs and food for the week. We were able to focus on fun and relaxing without spending the arrival day shopping to stock the condo! The kids enjoyed the pool in the building too. The beach is a short walk, the B had stops nearby and our favorite beach treat, Dumpsers, 7 blocks away. Thank you Laura and John for an awesome experience at your property and for allowing our family the opportunity to stay with you! Best condo experience in Ocean City!!

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we walked in, we felt at home. Every detail is done with careful thought. The unit looked new, was clean and the beds were comfy. Anything that we needed was in the unit. It's so nice not traveling to OC with sheets, blankets, paper products, etc! Thanks for a relaxing stay. We will definitely be returning.

Fantastic condo

  • 5 of 5

I've used VRBO/Homeaway for almost all our family vacations and have usually had good experiences. However, this condo and owner were a cut above.

The condo is gorgeous, extremely well-maintained, and well-equipped for your stay. We are a family of four -- parents and two teens -- and there was plenty of space (and bathroom counter space) for everyone. The linens are on the beds when you get there -- no hauling linens for bed sizes you may not even have at home, and you're not faced with making up beds after an exhausting drive. That's a big benefit, y'all!

The condo building itself is nice -- it has billiards, which my teens enjoyed, and an indoor pool, which we didn't use because the weather was so nice and that ocean is so big...The views of the bay from the patio are beautiful and the ocean is right across the street in the other direction. One family member likes to fish and there was easy access to fishing in the bay behind the convention center.

Laura is a fabulous owner -- by far the best I've worked with. She communicated wonderfully throughout the whole process, and when we had a very minor issue with one of the showers, she sent a plumber out right away to take care of it. Like I said, I've had a lot of pleasant rental experiences, but she truly stands out. If you're looking to rent a condo in Ocean City, look for one of her condos ;)

Oh, and just because we were Ocean City newbies and we met other OC newbies at the building -- the Makai is around 42nd Street and the boardwalk starts around 27th Street.

Classy and fabulous is an understatement !

  • 5 of 5

Wow ! Impressive immaculate condo with the perfect location. My husband and I traveled with our 2 - 16 year old girls for a weeks vacation. The condo was lovely. Every room was as described and Laura, the owner, was prompt, communicative and super nice to deal with. It is convenient easy walking distance to the boardwalk and endless restaurants. The condo is well furnished and a delightful retreat for us and our girls. The beds were extremely comfortable, everything was so clean and the towels and bedding soft and plush.

We will definitely be back ! Thank you Laura for the perfect vacation !!

Always a great time in Ocean City....

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very well equipped. The beds were comfy and we felt very at home. One thought about the pool, it could have been better maintained. We did not use it and thought the ventilation was poor. It would be great if pool rights to the Hampton Inn pool could be obtained. Overall we had great weather and the beach was the place to be so no complaints just an observation.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your vacation with us and enjoyed the condo. The Makai pool is located in an atrium style room and I assure you there is adequate ventilation, but it is an indoor pool. So there is the smell of chlorine and it is humid. The water is tested frequently and meets every standard, the pool is very popular, the pool decks have been recently recoated. We have not experienced any problem with the pool area maintenance ourselves, so I would be curious to hear more about your particular experience. We want everyone's vacation to be great and we will do our absolute best to accomplish that.

We are right next to the Convention Center, great location at 42nd street. Walking distance to Seacrets. Unit is bay front, and only one block from the ocean. New restaurant and bar right next door, right on the bay. Best crab place right across the street. Catch the bus to the boardwalk right outside the door.
