Our Top Vacation Rentals with a View

Ahhh… Vacation Rentals with a View

Whether it’s the sun rising over the ocean or setting over the bay, nothing says ‘vacation’ like a breathtaking view. Scenic views provide relaxation, natural beauty – and best of all – a fresh perspective. In a matter of moments, the stresses of work disappear, the busy pace of life slows down, and your world realigns. We think a view is even better when you can wake up and enjoy it right from your private vacation rental. Thanks to Ocean City’s skinny shape and unique positioning between the ocean and the bay, many of the vacation rentals around town are in close proximity to water and offer fantastic views. Just drop your bags and worries at the door and step outside onto the balcony – you are on vacation!

Ocean or Bay? Yes, Please!

From the Ocean City Boardwalk area to the Delaware beaches, Vantage Vacation Rentals offers a huge variety of homes along the ocean and bay that feature amazing views. For a panoramic view of the ocean, check out our oceanfront rentals at Gateway Grand or various buildings in North Ocean City’s “high-rise row” such as Braemar Towers, Century I, Sea Watch, Fountainhead Towers, Carousel, and High Point North. Not only do these rentals provide beautiful views, but they are located in family-friendly parts of town that are known for having some of the best amenities. If a sunset over the bay is what you’re dreaming of, there is also a wide variety of bayfront rentals where you can relax with a drink as the sun goes down. Some of our favorite bayfront communities are Sunset Island, Bahia Vista, Oasis on the Bay, Makai, and Sunset Beach – all of which are located in mid-town Ocean City near popular restaurants and nightlife. Or if you just can’t decide between the ocean or bay, we have vacation rentals with views of BOTH!

Benefits of the Off-Season in Ocean City, MD

Everyone knows how great Ocean City is during the summer months, but not many realize how fun it can also be during the off-season. The weather may be a bit chilly, but there is still plenty to do, such as weekly events, shopping, and tourist attractions. It’s a little bit like having the beach to yourself, with less traffic, fewer crowds, and an all-around slower pace.  Head down to the Boardwalk for a morning bike ride and stop in at your favorite breakfast shop for a cup of coffee.  Most Boardwalk shops and restaurants are open daily, and especially on weekends.  There are no restrictions for bike riding on the Boardwalk from the Tuesday after Labor Day until the Friday before Memorial Day (excluding Springfest and Sunfest weekends).  Parking is also free April 1st through October 31st.  Feel free to bring your pets along, as leashed dogs are welcome on the beach and Boardwalk from October 1st through April 30th.  (Browse our Pet-Friendly Rentals page to view homes that permit pets.)

Fantastic Dining, Shopping and Activities

Snow and sand do not mix, but there is just something about seeing Ocean City in all seasons of the year that is so peaceful and wonderful to experience. Beachcombers love the off-season since it’s the perfect time to search for seashells as they wash up onto the shore (especially after storms in the spring or fall).  It is also not unusual to see rare marine life make an appearance every now and then, such as migrating seals that stop to rest on the beach.  If retail therapy is what you seek, Ocean City offers a variety of great shopping options – from small shops like Ish Boutique and South Moon Under to The Tanger Outlets in West Ocean City, which features discount shopping at big name stores like American Eagle, Under Armour, and more.  Ready for a bite to eat?  There are many town favorite restaurants that offer daily lunch and dinner specials, such as OC Wasabi, Harrison’s Harbor Watch, and Harborside.  Be sure to check out Fishtales next to Bahia Marina on 18th St., which is open on weekends and features a beautiful bayfront beach with a playground for the kids.  Off-season fishing trips are also available there on the weekends. Reel in winner rock fish and enjoy your own freshly caught meal.

Budget-Friendly Vacation Rental Rates

Last, but not least, the best part about the off-season is low rental rates! Our best properties are waiting to offer you luxurious accommodations for a fraction of what it would cost in the summertime.  Here are some recommendations for awesome off-season getaways.

Acropolis 1 – 3-BR/3.5-BA/Sleeps 8 – Stay oceanfront on 63rd Street in one of Ocean City’s finest buildings.  Previously featured in Coastal Style Magazine as a “Prestigious Property,” this 3,000-square foot condo offers opulent décor, access to a rooftop hot tub, and beautiful views of the ocean and beach.

Enjoy Exciting May Events

One of the best reasons to visit Ocean City in May is for the events! The excitement begins with Springfest (May 4th-7th) – the town’s unofficial kickoff to the summer season. This popular event features four days of food, live music, craft vendors, and family-friendly activities.  Headlining acts this year include American rock icon Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, country music star Josh Turner, and 50s & 60s oldies classics from The Fabulous Hubcaps.

Spend quality time with mom by celebrating Mother’s Day weekend (May 12th-14th) at the beach.  Numerous restaurants throughout town have Mother’s Day specials – a great way to show how much you care.  If you’re looking for a fun activity, consider participating in the Mother’s Day Memorial 3-Mile Fun Run/Walk taking place on May 14th at Northside Park.  This is a memorial event for those who have lost their mother, as well as to honor mothers everywhere.  Race packet pick-up/registration will be held at The Abbey Burger Bistro starting at 7:30 AM before the event, in addition to a post-race party with drinks and food to celebrate Mother’s Day.

Rev up your engines at Cruisin’ Ocean City (May 18th-21st) at the OC Inlet Parking Lot and Roland E. Powell Convention Center.  This popular car show is a must-see event for the car-lover in your family with over 3,400 hot rods, customs, classics, street machines, and everything in between.  During this four-day event, visitors can enjoy live entertainment, celebrity appearances, attractions, and vendors.  One of the highlights that you won’t want to miss are the car parades that take place on the Boardwalk on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday morning from 7:00 AM to 10:00 AM.
