What to Expect with an Ocean City, MD Vacation Rental

Making a Reservation

Reservations for Ocean City MD vacation rentals couldn't be easier!


You may make your reservation for Ocean City Rentals, online from this site at any time of day or night. Your choice will be “reserved” for you immediately, and we will call you within 24 hours to confirm and to accept your payment information.


You may call our toll-free reservation number, 1-800-756-8223 during business hours from anywhere in the 50 United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, or the US Virgin Islands. Our dedicated rental staff will gladly assist you with your selection, answer any questions, and make your reservation over the phone.


You may also visit one of our offices in person to reserve your vacation rental. If you choose to come in person, most properties may be seen when unoccupied. You may even wish to "preview" your chosen vacation home by renting it for a weekend off-season if that option is available.


Finally, you may mail us your reservation request with a 50% advance rent deposit.


We are open all year, seven days a week, except holidays in the Winter, and Christmas week. Our hours are from 9:00 to 5:00 every day, except Sundays from September through December. Our satellite offices on-site at major condominium complexes may observe an abbreviated schedule during the winter months, but their phone lines continue to be answered whenever our main office is open.


We accept advance reservations in all properties for the Ocean City MD peak season (from Memorial Day to the third week in September) by the full week. Weekly rentals run Friday to Friday, Saturday to Saturday, Sunday to Sunday or Monday to Monday, depending upon the property, as indicated in the description. We also accept advance “mini-week” reservations in some properties for the peak season, as indicated in the description. Mini-week rentals run from Friday to Monday (3 nights) or Monday to Friday (4 nights).


When you make your reservation, we will send you a Lodging Agreement with complete details. You may pay your advance rent deposit by MasterCard, VISA, or Discover, or by check if more than 30 days prior to your reservation start date. If you choose to send a check, your reservation will be held for you for up to five days to allow time for your deposit to arrive.

What To Expect When You Rent A Condominium

CENTURY 21 New Horizon is the exclusive agent representing the owners of each of the properties presented on this Website. Each property is privately owned and decorated with the personal touches, taste and care of the individual beach homeowner.


Your accommodations will receive housekeeping service before you arrive, but there is no maid service during your stay. Units are set up for your own light housekeeping and include cooking and eating utensils, but to be sure you have what you want, you may want to bring any special small appliances or your favorite frying pan.


All properties are equipped with a CATV cable or a satellite connection to receive a variety of networks and local channels. HBO and other premium cable services are not provided unless noted in the description. Color televisions are provided as a courtesy of the owner unless otherwise indicated in the description. High-speed internet service may be available in some properties, but only if indicated in the description.


Telephones are provided in most of our condominiums and houses for free local and credit card long-distance calling. Sorry, but we do not allow our personnel to deliver messages. If you expect mail or phone messages to be delivered to our offices, you may pick them up during business hours.


Vacation rental guests must adhere to all rules of the condominium building or neighborhood in which they are renting, and the Ocean City MD noise ordinance. Sorry, absolutely no pets are allowed, except in those few properties which accept dogs for an additional fee, as noted in the property description. No Smoking is permitted in any of our vacation rental properties, unless otherwise specified in the property description.

Nightly Reservations

During the prime season, some properties accept advance reservations for “mini-weeks”, as indicated in the property description. Nightly rentals in season are also sometimes available in many properties when last-minute vacancies exist. Except for mini-weeks where offered, we cannot accept advance reservations for nightly rentals in season any earlier than a week prior to the dates you desire.


Several of our properties are available for short stays of two nights or more off-season. There is generally a two-night minimum; a three-night minimum may be required on some holiday weekends.

What To Bring With You

Please bring a strong appreciation for the good life!


You must also bring your own bed sheets and pillowcases (bedspreads and blankets are provided), towels, paper products, soaps, laundry and dishwashing detergents, beach blankets, and other beach gear.


There are local vendors who rent linens, televisions, baby cribs and beach equipment. You may make arrangements for these through our office prior to your arrival date if you so choose.
