About The Area

The location is fantastic, we are next to the convention center and the island is very narrow at 42nd street. 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 still 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.

Classy and impressive

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! My 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!

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!!

Exceeded Expectation!

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

Beautiful Condo

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

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 !

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 !!

Awesome place to stay!

We stayed with another couple during the Memorial day weekend it was awesome. Everything was great from the time we walked in. Exactly as the pictures are shown. It was clean, spacious very welcoming, bright and a great location. It was not too far from the boardwalk but we drove there as walking would have been too much. You could take the bus to the boardwalk if you like as well. The condo is located at a good walking distance to many places and restaurants. I enjoyed the all you can eat breakfast buffet at The Beach House Restaurant located at the Castle hotel it was good clean and affordable. The beach was located across the street which was great. If it rains you have indoor activities at the condo. Laura is really friendly and provides everything necessary for your stay and you do not need to carry with you all the extra stuff since its already provided to you. It is really an awesome place and I will stay here again in my next visit to Ocean City, MD and highly recommend it.

Amazing place to stay!

My husband and I were so lucky to find this place. We were having a house built in DE and our house in NJ sold in 6 days. With no place to stay and our new house not expected to be complete until December we were having a hard time finding a rental. Luckily we found Laura (owner) who was a god send. She was willing to work with us and rent to us without knowing when our house would be done. The place was home for us for 9 weeks and we loved it. It was comfortable, clean and had everything you needed to be at home. Laura was more than accommodating and never missed a beat when we had any questions. The condo is spacious, the beds more than comfortable and the full size bunk beds came in handy when we had family visit from out of town. Would highly recommend to anyone who wouldn't mind watching beautiful sunsets on the bay from the balcony and being a block from the beach.

Clean and Comfy!

This had to be THE best condo we have ever stayed in. The owners did not miss a beat. So clean and spacious, they provide everything you can think of. The beds were so comfy, the bathrooms so clean. Towels soft and clean. Great location, we walked to places. Pretty view from the balcony of the bay and the bridge. We will definitely stay here again!! Definitely try it you will not be disappointed!

Great Condo!

Very impressed with how clean and well maintained this condo was! The owner was extremely accommodating and answered all of our questions in a timely matter. I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a beautiful condo to stay at while vacationing in Ocean City, MD!

Nothing but class

This property is maintained far beyond a typical rental. The owners have designed and placed upscale furnishings all throughout. All of my inquires were immediately addressed, couldn't ask for a more response staff. Highly recommend to a family with desire to maintain the same comfort as home.

Quite Nice

A very nice place. My wife and I spent a long weekend (off-season). The weather wasn't the best --- cold and rainy --- but we enjoyed staying here. The condo has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a small, well-appointed kitchen, and a living room area with an extremely comfortable sofa. There is a small balcony, too, but it was a bit cold for that while we were there. The unit is also supplied with sheets, towels, dishes, etc., so you only need bring what you'd bring to a hotel. The building, the Makai, also has a workout room and an indoor pool, which we used and enjoyed, a billiards room, and a common area with tables suitable for playing cards or board games with other residents and guests. While we were there, there were workmen preparing the building for the coming season, and they couldn't have been nicer. I also like the digital keyless entry for the building and the condo unit itself. No keys to fumble with or lose track of. Located right on the Coastal Highway, near 42nd Street, the place is very convenient to the Convention Center, as well as restaurants, mini-golf, and many other activities. In addition to the good qualities of the unit itself, the owner, Laura, is beyond helpful and accommodating, making sure we had all the information we might need before we arrived.

This is my first review. I can't even begin to describe how much we enjoyed our stay at the Makai. The apartment is beautiful, pristinely kept and not missing a single amenity! I particularly loved the way the apartment was furnished - so elegant and tasteful yet extremely comfortable and inviting. The beds were so comfortable and the kids LOVED the full size bunk beds. But most of all, we loved our interaction with the owner - she is incredibly responsive and friendly - an absolute pleasure to deal with. Thanks for sharing your beautiful property, Laura! We were all so sad to leave but look forward to coming back next summer!

Makai 116

Inquiry Received I just returned from a 3 day weekend and spent it in your unit. I just want to thank you for everything that you've done! The linens and sheets provided were fabulous! The unit was super clean and had EVERYTHING that we needed! We will definately be staying here again and I will recommend your unit to friends and family!!! Thanks again.

This unit is super clean and has EVERYTHING!!!!

I came down for a long weekend to attend an event at the Convention Center. I've stayed at the Makai before because of the convenience factor of being able to walk to the Convention Center, but this unit is by far the best one!!! It's super clean, comes with linens (and nice ones at that) and has EVERYTHING you need - you don't need to bring anything except your own personal belongings! I would definately stay again!
