Every year, Ocean City is flooded with adrenaline-pumped explorers, craving a taste of summer. After a long day of shopping and beach games, sometimes all you want to do is to crash at a comfortable place. From college students to romantics on their honeymoon, there’s room for everyone in Ocean City, Maryland. Take a look at 5 of our carefully curated Airbnb rentals that have a little something for everyone:
This quaint little room is found amidst the thriving energy of the city, perfect for a honeymooning couple who want to indulge in the sweet romance of the setting sun after a long day. Located just a short walk away are popular bars and a grocery store. Take your time getting a cocktail, and you can even cook up a small feast in the kitchen for supper, enjoying your meal up on the patio while watching the night sky light up with stars. The lack of internet access is made up for with the wide range of activities to do in the vicinity. Steps away from the beach, you can find a long stretch of novelty and specialty stores to shop at. If you catch a whiff of grilled meat, you’re definitely not hallucinating; it’s probably from the famous Bull on the Beach BBQ restaurant nearby. Stop by for a pint of beer and eat to your heart’s content! Wake up after a good night’s sleep to the subtle fragrance of coffee brewing from the kitchen, and deliciously baked bagels. The adorable sheepdog, Robert, makes a good companion on one of those particularly lazy Sunday mornings too!

Taking a short trip with your kids this weekend? Have a look at this cosy condominium steps away from the famous Seacrets waterfront restaurant. Adorned with intricately carved island decor, this house will definitely keep the kids’ spirits high with it’s galore of bright colors. Conveniently located beside the beach, you can easily head back to pick up any essentials (icebox, extra towels) that you forgot earlier on without having to bring the kids back. When it gets too hot outside for day activities, turn the AC down to the lowest temperature and seek refuge in the pastel blue rooms. With wavy bamboo that lines the walls, it creates a scenic illusion of clustering seaweed, floating against the ocean bed. The cool-toned hues of the room make it the perfect setting to catch your favourite comedy series on cable TV in comfort. For dinner, you can choose to whip up a simple meal in the kitchen, or head out to OC Steamers just across the road for a scrumptious seafood feast. You can also make use of the washer and dryer to clean out your children’s salty swimsuits and sandy clothes.

Many Airbnb apartment rentals in Ocean City are not open to large student group bookings, presumably due to safety and / or security concerns. This simple and newly renovated condominium, however, is open to accommodating up to 6 people at once, with no restrictions on age. If you get all five of your buddies in on the trip, each person pays around 15 USD a night! (Do note though that there is an additional cleaning fee.) For a prime location right beside the pool and just a five-minute walk from the beach you’re sure to have a blast with your besties! Do be aware to keep the noise down though, as no raucous parties are allowed. For convenient access, there is a bus that goes down to the end of the boardwalk, making it easier to do some last-minute shopping for affordable gifts or hunt down some late-night snacks. With a pullout queen-sized sofa bed in the living room, you can binge watch movies with everyone comfortably tucked in.
