About the property

Queen Bed & Twin Daybed. Great Balcony w/Ocean View! Linens & bath towels incl

Best studio in Ocean City, with ocean views from the balcony. Cond-otel style, meaning we offer the best of both worlds, condo & hotel. Open all year. Sleeps up to 3.

First we are a real, comfortable and private home. We have a queen bed, and a twin daybed. We have a large HD TV. We offer free wifi and the "Premier" Direct TV channels, which means every channel they offer. We have a fully equipped kitchen and a stackable washer & dryer. There is a blow dryer in the bath.

Next we offer hotel-like convenience, so you are truly on vacation with us. Nobody does this like we do. We provide high quality 100% cotton sheets and the bed is freshly made before you arrive. We provide nice bath towels. And we provide all household items; toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags, detergents of every kind, dryer sheets etc. Our home is always clean and well-stocked.

Clarification: We do not supply beach towels, personal toiletries (shampoo, lotion)...or swim suits. :) So please bring those. We do not have a daily maid.

And finally, the building has amenities galore, including an indoor pool, billiards room for adults, gym, sauna, large public area, outdoor shower.

The Makai is in a great location. The island is very narrow here and the beach is just across the street. It is walking distance to Seacrets for night club excitement, no driving. New Tap House in the shopping mall a block away, with bayside restaurant & bar. Best crab house is across the street. Dough Roller & Ritas right next door, and the Convention Center next to that. The bus to the boardwalk stops right outside the door.

We're open all year round, so please come visit us any time. When you stay with us you stay with friends!

About Laura from JL Ocean Dream

My husband & I love ocean city, and we got married right behind the Makai building in the Sunset Room. We ended up with a few Ocean City condos, including another in the Makai (unit 116 - sleeps 6 - Home Away listing 3482366) and one on the boardwalk (Somerset @ 2nd - sleeps 12 - Home Away listing 237433). We love them all. But Makai unit #510 is special to us, because it's just for us. When we stay here it's just about us. It's great.

Laura from JL Ocean Dream purchased this condo in 2008

Why Laura from JL Ocean Dream chose Maryland

The island is very narrow at 42nd street so the bay & ocean are both very close. All the events at the Convention Center are steps away. The beaches are less crowded and it is very relaxing. We like to sit on the bay benches and watch the sunset. Seacrets is walking distance, the bus will take you to the boardwalk, the best crab place is across the street and the new Tap House is a block away on the bay. We are perfect for young families with a baby or one kid, couples of any age or even 3 friends. Come visit us.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is top of the line. We provide sheets & bath towels for you, we have all basic household items, soaps, blow dryer, detergents, paper products. All you have to do is show up and have a good time. We take care of the rest. It's like you are borrowing a friends condo...and you are.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was my second time staying at this condo. Both times have been wonderful experiences. The condo has been immaculately clean both times. It's so nice that almost everything is provided for you. The condo is centrally located right in the middle of everything. Laura is such a pleasure to deal with. She is always very prompt with all of her responses. I enjoy this place so much I've already booked another stay for next year!

Great trip!

  • 5 of 5

I wasn't too interested in staying in a hotel because I wanted amenities and an indoor pool. When I found this I booked right away because it seemed perfect and it did not disappoint. It felt nothing like a hotel, but more like a home away from home. It was cozy, relaxing, and had everything I could have wanted. The bed and bedding was large, clean and comfortable. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need to make meals. The bathroom was clean and equipped with everything needed upon arrival. We seemed to be the only people in the building at this time of year. The indoor pool was a nice size, the sauna was really nice, and the billiards room was amazing. I would love to stay here again if I'm making a trip into Ocean City!

This is the 3rd time I have stayed in this amazing studio. The place is always well cleaned and stocked so you don't have to worry about towels or linens. And not to mention the pillows are soooo comfy.

Laura, the property owner, goes above and beyond to make your stay organized. She always goes above and beyond for myself and my family. Looking forward to booking many more here!

The unit was very "homey".

  • 5 of 5

This was a great vacation. A time for three of us to just enjoy and relax. The unit was very inviting and all the comforts of home. I say enough about the owners. They were so easy to work with and very accommodating. Thank you so much for providing a well needed vacation.

Very nice!!

This place was perfect for my husband and I to stay for a long weekend. It had everything we needed. Very nicely updated and the bed was extremely comfortable. The balcony overlooks Coastal Highway and the Makai is perfectly located. We will definitely stay here again.

Magnifique studio!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons adoré ce studio. Propre et bien aménagé, il répond à tous les besoins pour deux personnes. Bien situé, magnifique levé de soleil, vu sur la mer et près de terrains de golf, ce studio est accessible et comporte de nombreux avantages.

Je le recommande chaleureusement. Louise, Québec city.

Cozy Clean and Comfy!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this studio! It had everything we needed. We were able to see the sunrise each morning right from our balcony which was a huge plus. This was our first time ever renting a vrbo or home away rental and we couldn't have asked for a better owner to deal with or cleaner condo! We were so pleased we went back two months later and rented her other condo for the car show weekend. I definitely recommend this comfy and clean studio. I know we will be back again for sure.

We are located at 42nd street on Coastal Highway, right next to the convention center. The island is very narrow here so we are on the bay and across the street from the beach. New restaurants, close by. Perfect for convention center events.
