Welcome to the Cara Mar! We've been renting our studio condo for over 35 successful years! Our guests tell us that our location is what keeps bringing them back all seasons! From our top 4th. floor oceanfront balcony you will hear the waves splashing on the shore, as you breathe in the salty air. You may even catch a glimpse of the dolphins splashing offshore. Parks, restaurants, shopping and public transportation are close. A studio condominium is perfect for up to 4 people. This is not a one bedroom condo. There is a full sized Murphy bed and queen size sleep sofa. The Murphy bed is located behind the ship wheel in the photos. Pillows and blankets are available. Because the condo is located on the top 4th. floor noises and other distractions are minimal. Beach access is phenomenal and ...Welcome to the Cara Mar!

Because the condo is located on the top 4th. floor noises and other distractions are minimal. Beach access is phenomenal and just steps from the elevator. You do not need to cross any streets which makes lugging your beach equipment so much easier and safer. The parking lot is so close to the beach and building that you can pick beach equipment up from your car on your way to the beach. There is a boardwalk that extends to the dunes and provides direct access to the beach. An outside shower for Cara Mar guests is available. Free secured WiFi is available and the password is located within the condo. Our studio is recently updated with new carpeting, fresh paint, tiled floor, heat pump, AC unit, and hot water tank. The kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans, dishes, microwave, dish-washer, large refrigerator, full-size cook top/oven, disposal and dining table for 4. The full-bathroom features a bathtub and shower with grab bar. Towels, toiletries and paper products are not provided. Relax by the private pool! A key will be provided to ensure your access. The elevator is brand-new and fully accessible. Laundry is also available on-premise and you will be provided with a key for access. The washers and dryers are coin-operated and located by the elevator on the ground level. There is an assigned free parking space close to the elevator and pool. We require weekly reservations during the on-season. If you are interested in a shorter stay off-season please get in touch with us! We will be taking reservations for next year starting in January.....The building is a mid-size masonry condominium complex. Once you have booked a stay with us we will provide keys for the condo, laundry room, and pool, as well as a parking permit and any additional last-minute instructions.

About the neighbourhood
The Cara Mar is located in North Ocean City at 123 St. and the ocean. It is in an area that has all of the beach amenities including Bus Service to the entire area. You can rent umbrellas and beach chairs right out front of our condo. We are near North Side Park, water sports, miniature golf and great restaurants. The environment is quiet and family oriented. Restaurants, shopping and parks are within walking distance. Enjoy tax-free shopping in nearby Rehobeth and Bethany Beach Delaware.
Getting around
Ocean City has a very robust bus network that operates extremely frequently during the season. It also operates during the off-season with fewer buses. There is a bus-stop directly across the street from our building. For just $3 you can ride the bus as much as you'd like all day long, perfect for heading down to the boardwalk and back.
