Update March 25 - 2015 book has been open since November with an overwhelming response, we are now sold out for all summer weeks. There are a few weekends available in May and September and weekdays available in May and September, potentially early June by request (no senior weekers our property manager only rents over 25, sorry)
This is the earliest we have sold out our season, thank you to all guests past and upcoming in 2015
I'd like to thank my 2014 guests and from past years who have made our unit #1 in Trip Advisor for number of reviews and with a 4.8 out of 5.0 rating !!
Thank you everyone
Speak direct to the owner not a rental agent
We completed a 2nd round of extensive renovations after our kitchen complete remodel with laminate floor and new living room/dining room furniture. Further renovations include new tile floor in hallway bathroom, new blinds in living room and 2nd bedroom and a few furnishings. Every year we are improving. It looks like a completely new place!
We had a great 2014 season, we were booked most of the season well into September for 2015.
We now feature movie channels to go with the 2 digital TV's in the living room and master bedroom along with wi-fi.
Note - we are getting increasing requests for guys or girls weekends with groups of 5 to 8 people. Our unit is not really the proper size for your group - we have 4 beds and 2 bathrooms, it would be a tight squeeze. When you have that many people, you really need a 3 bedroom unit. We want all our guests to be comfortable and you really would be bumping into each other.....
Also - Senior Week - we are not available at this time.
* Weekly rates only from June 13 to September 5, before and after this time both daily (2 night minimum) and weekly stays are available. Summer weekly rates range from $900 to $1800 depending on the week. The lowest rates are mid August and into October.
At Sandpiper Dunes, you are located in a quiet mid town location in an oceanfront building with outdoor pool. Even better, with a first floor location, you are only steps away from close-in parking, pool and beach, avoiding the elevator. Numerous great restaurants and attractions are within a short walk or drive, making this the perfect spot for families, both young and old. Our unit is on side of the building you can see the ocean from the balcony and master bedroom.
Inside, the 1200 sq ft unit sleeps up to 8 with a MBR Queen, 2 double beds in BR2, and a pullout couch. Ceiling fans keep the ocean breezes going inside, and the unit has been updated over recent years with HDTV (living room and master BR), wi-fi and renovated bathrooms. A fully stocked and completely renovated kitchen makes you feel at home. Washer/dryer, dishwasher, air conditioning (new in 2012) , balcony, microwave, toaster oven, blender, coffee maker complete the amenities.
We have two reserved parking spots on our lot, one is very close to the entrance. And, in most years, the OC beach patrol has maintained a handicap access wheelchair at the beach entrance - it is a fairly easy process to borrow the wheelchair from the beach patrol. Details on town website ( I can tell you how also as I have done it in past)
Call/ e-mail for availability. I try to keep availability current on the calendar
Making a reservation: When you make a reservation, in addition to the base unit cost there are the following mandatory fees and taxes:
o 10.5% sales and hotel tax

o $73 processing fee. This covers the cost of the property manager to process your reservation, payments and other administration costs
- When we make the initial contact with you, we will ask for a credit card to hold your reservation - you will be charged $153
- Then we will send you the contract, you are requested to sign and return the contract within 7 to 10 days and pay additional money to get to a 50% payment of the total rental
- You can make this payment by check or credit card.
- The remainder of the payment is dues 30 days before check in. Only checks are accepted, not credit cards
- There is trip insurance available at 6.75% of the total cost of the reservation. You may wish to consider this for possible medical cancellations or for later season rentals when hurricanes are more likely. We (the owner and Shoreline) do not refund your costs due to weather or medial related trip cancellations
- There is a linen rental service available for $114 per week – your sheets and towels will be delivered to the unit, you still need to make up the beds. The linens will be picked up after your departure
You must provide linens (fitted sheet, sheet, pillowcase, towels) . (My advice - you can buy sheets and towels cheaper at Wal-Mart or Target - a queen will fit all beds)

This condo was such a great find. The entire place is very nice and clean, the kitchen is gorgeous and had everything that we needed. We just moved right in and started vacationing. It was so wonderful to walk out the door and be right there at the beach. Love the assigned parking so close to the unit. Can't wait to go back! Read more
Carol Ann, thanks so much for the kind words. We often stay at our place too, so we keep it in great condition for wonderful guests like yourself. I hope you will return in the future - thanks!

The owners were amazing and provided us with all sorts of useful tips and recommendations for the area. The condo was clean and big and well-equipped with everything we needed. The kitchen is beautiful and modern, with two big bedrooms and two bathrooms. We loved the place and loved the vacation! Read more
Hello Shannon, thank you so much for the nice words and I'm pleased you were able to have a great vacation.

The condo was more than we expected, beautifully decorated and all the comforts of home..Access to the beach was great especially since we had a one year old with us...Great hot week...loved our stay...
couldnt have been more pleased... Read more
Thanks for the kinds words Amy. Young families especially like our unit because it is easy in and out, avoiding elevators, lots of steps etc
One thing I'd add too is that Amy and I were in touch before her visit and I was able to direct her to resources about what to do in OC and our own favorites, and also answer any questions about what to bring/what we supply.

"Wonderful Family Graduation Beach Weekend"
Left on 05/24/2013 for a stay in May 2013 | LizReviewed May 24, 2013Stayed May 2013
My family had the pleasure of renting this beautiful,updated,spotless,condo with a brand new kitchen for our daughters graduation from Salisbury University. Location,location,location! We were fortunate enough not only to be steps away from the beach but some wonderful fun spots. The owner had recommended Galaxy 66 for our celebratory dinner,and the food was Outstanding...just what we were looking for on this very special occasion. Even though we didn't have time to explore all that was around us, we were impressed with all the fun in walking distance! Read more
Hello Liz, thanks for the nice comments, Galaxy 66 is our favorite restaurant in OC, it's a bit different than what you'd expect at the beach. Regarding the unit and the kitchen it was a labor of love, we enjoy remodeling and you were the very first guest to experience it. We'll be posting pictures shortly...We're also Seagull parents, so best wishes for the future!

The location was great, walked right to beach. Nice kitchen and dining area. Closet space was ample. Nicely decorated. We were disappointed that previous guest[s] had broken a chair. We called the rental company [not owners] who said to move it out of the way. Not much they could do. I did have a little difficulty getting tv / cable to work, but that's me! Definitely will be back! Read more
Hello, this is the owner - I became aware of the broken chair when we returned to our unit after the summer season and we immediately removed it and it will be replaced. In additon, we are renovating the whole kitchen this winter
I can understand how the cable can be hard to understand, I will look at clarifying the instructions with a step by step pictorial
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay overall and you are certainly welcome back!

My Husband and 2 young children loved this place! So nice and clean, and the beach was literally right outside the doors! We would recommend this place to anyone who may be visiting the Ocean City area and we will most definitely be staying here again! We liked it so much-we decided to stay an extra day and when we contacted the owner to see if it was available, he was very accommidating and we got our extra day! Cannot say enough good things!

Thanks, you are welcome back any time! We keep the unit in good condition as we stay here often ourselves.

We stayed in the condo for a weekend and found it very accommodating. It's spacious and beautifully decorated, so if you need breaks from the hub-bub, you have a great place to relax. We dined nearby (walking distance) at Fagers and listen to the symphony during fireworks, and then went for dancing in another Fager's dining room. The condo is right on the beach, and there's a pool if you need a change. I couldn't ask for more! We look forward to returning next year - Thank you so much. Read more
Thanks for the nice review - you have pointed out a great feature of our unit - location - from 58th street, you are walking distance to a lot of great restaurants and nightspots - Seacrets, Macky's, Johnny's, Fager's Island and Dead Freddies are all less than 10 blocks away!
Thanks and you are very welcome next year!

"Nice and Clean!"
Left on 06/06/2012 for a stay in May 2012 | LaurieReviewed Jun 6, 2012Stayed May 2012
We were very happy with this condo rental. It would have been great to bring our kids there too! The owner was fantastic and super easy to communicate with. The condo was very nice and comfortable, and had everything we needed. Just make sure to bring your own sheets and towels unless you buy the linen package(which we declined becasue it was super expensive)! The only downside was the rental company. They were a nightmare to deal with. Read more
Thank you Laurie for the very positive review. With sheets and towels, "bring your own" is the best option, the linen package is indeed expensive, you can buy linens at Wal-Mart or Bed bath Beyond cheaper than their package. Overall, "bring your own" actaully keeps your costs down, we dont run like a hotel
Regarding the rental company, you had flagged this up when you made the contract with them, I spoke on the phone with the owner who is also very responsive, he has assured me he has taken action on training and re-emphasized customer service
Thanks again and I hope you will want to return!

My family and I (there were 8 of us) had the best time ever over this past weekend. We only stayed for 3 days but it was worth it. The weather was great all weekend. The condo was clean, homey, comfortable and in a great location. We were on the first floor so we didn't have to far to go with all our luggages. And the best part we were literally steps from the beach. My daughter absolutely loved her first beach trip and our whole family will definitely stay here again next year if not sooner. Love OC!
Left on 06/06/2011 for a stay in May 2011 | A GREAT VACATIONReviewed Jun 6, 2011Stayed May 2011
The condo had all the comforts of home. My husband and I took our children and grandchildren and there were no complaints. which is amazing with 5 girls ranging from 29-3. I was pleasently supprised when I needed something for cooking that the girls could go across the street and back in minutes. The location was great. Beach and pool steps away and minutes drive to the boardwalk. We all had a wonderful time. Read more
Thank you, we do our best to keep the unit in good shape as we use it ourselves

My husband and another couple spent a wonderful, restful September week at this lovely condo. It is nicely decorated and just around the corner from the Ocean. We enjoyed the balcony for breakfasts and leisurely reading times. It was certainly comfortable and we had all the conveniences of home. We plan to return next September to enjoy another week at the beach.
