Welcome to our special beach place. Our family has been enjoying this property for decades, and now we would like to share it with you. We offer a three bedroom, 2 bath – 1200+ square foot unit, facing 100% directly on the ocean, with 35 feet of frontage on a private balcony. The balcony has two redwood lounge chairs, a redwood table that seats 6, plus additional seating. Most importantly, the balcony affords a beautiful private ocean view to savor 24 hours a day.
Camelot Condominium is located in N. Ocean City, one mile from Fenwick. There is an Olympic size swimming pool – (the largest in Ocean City) with a lifeguard during the day, a tennis court, lovely garden areas, and an award winning bridge walk to the beach. You can access the beach from either side of the building, and it takes all of 4 minutes to get from your unit to the sand. There is an outside shower and foot wash for your convenience. You will not only find the unit to be lovely, but the grounds as well. Directly by the north entrance to the beach, there is a rental stand offering umbrellas, boogie boards, chairs etc. You can rent by the day or week, and avoid bringing all your stuff from home. Just show up and play. We also include beach chairs and other ammenities with the rental.
In addition, to the beach, there are endless opportunities for boating, sailing, fishing, fly boarding, water skiing, paddle boarding, kayaking etc., just 10-20 minutes from your front door. When you are done with a fun filled day, there are numerous dining opportunities close by, with everything from fine dining to great little local spots.
As you enter the unit, there are two bedrooms to either side of you. The bedroom to your right has a king bed, with dresser, and the bedroom to your left offers two doubles, plus a dresser. This is a great room for kids, or adults who want a little more room than twin beds could offer. Each room has direct access to its own bathroom, and provides closets with ample room to store your things during your stay. The room with the king has more closet space.
As you walk further down the hall, on your left you find hall access to one of the bathrooms, and a laundry room, equipped with a full size washer and dryer, laundry sink, drying racks, and hooks to hang your things after a busy beach day.
Don’t miss the junior hammerhead shark and stingray waiting to say hello…yes they are real – caught by my dad. Please enjoy, but do not touch! Under the fish is a chest full of puzzles, and a few games. No guarantee that all the pieces are there – but some of them are vintage to be sure! You will find lots of books around the condo. Feel free to read and enjoy. If they are paperback, feel free to take it with you. If you want to leave a good book, they are always welcome. There is not a lot of serious fiction, or nonfiction here – mostly light summer reads. Please be aware that most of the books are intended for adults, and may not be appropriate for younger kids.
A little further down the hall is the kitchen on your left, and the third bedroom (or den if you prefer) on your right. The kitchen is equipped with refrigerator, stove/oven, dishwasher, disposal, microwave, coffee maker, as well as a French press, toaster and small hand mixer. This is not a gourmet kitchen, but it is fully equipped with everything you need to make great food you can enjoy ocean side on the balcony. There are plenty of extras so you can add a little flair to your table and presentation. We leave basic fridge condiments, unopened grocery/canned and limited spices items to share. We ask that you do the same when you leave. Feel free to use what is there, and please replace whatever you use up.
Now for the best part – well before you actually enter the living room, you will see the ocean ahead. In fact, you will probably want to go to the balcony directly upon arrival. Take a few minutes and enjoy the view and sounds. The living/dining room/balcony area is the very best part of the unit. The dining table seats 6 comfortably. (We move chairs back and forth from the balcony, depending on where we need them. There are a total of eight dining chairs.) The dining table is also great for board games, puzzles and cards.
There is a pass through between the kitchen and seating area, so everyone is always part of the action. There is a full ocean view from the kitchen.
The living room has a comfy leather sofa, a swivel chair with ottoman, and three other chairs, so there is plenty of room for everyone. With the slider door open you can hear the sound of the surf all day and night.
There is a smart TV with Comcast service in the living room. Free, secure Wi-Fi is provided. There is a small, older TV in the den that is set up for DVD’s- great for the kids. There is a small collection of DVD's you are welcome to use. There is no cable service in that room.
The den/third bedroom- This room can be used either way. If you want an extra place for the kids to hang out, it is perfect. If you need the extra space for sleeping, there is an old trundle bed with mini mattresses – more like futons. This room is better for kids or teens. It works fine for adults as well, if they are flexible about expectations. The room has a closet and small dresser. This room is darker and cozy, and can be opened to the living room if desired. The room has its own entrance off the hall, and direct access to its bathroom, which is shared with the master bedroom. This bathroom is the bigger of the two.

I live in Sonoma, CA, with my husband and 17 year son. I grew up on the east coast, and all my family still resides there. I have lived in CA for 25 years. I have traveled many places with Air BnB, and have enjoyed fantastic experiences. I have now decided to host, as well. I value the ability to have a "home" with Air BnB, where ever we travel, I look forward to sharing ours with you.
In my free time, I enjoy shared experiences with family and friends, good food, being outdoors; and long walks with friends, both human and canine.
