12 Fantastic Vrbos In Ocean City, Maryland For The Perfect Atlantic Coast Vacation

On the barrier island just off the coast of mainland Maryland, Ocean City sits between Isle of Wight Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Dubbed “America’s Greatest Beach Resort”, OC – as the locals call it – boasts 10 miles of gorgeous beach. In addition to sand, sun, sparkling waters, and seafood like fresh Maryland crab, the resort town is notable for its abundance of top golf courses and its proximity to Assateague Island. But, it’s most famous for its three-mile-long historic boardwalk, populated with carnival games, rides, arcades, street performers, seaside treats, and beach shops. From shopping to deep sea fishing trips to water sports, Ocean City offers something for everyone.

Part of planning the perfect family summer vacation on the Atlantic Coast is finding the perfect place to stay. We’ve taken out some of the guesswork for you by carefully combing through Vrbo vacation rentals in Ocean City to find the ones your family will love.

Our picks below start on the quieter side of town in North OC. As we progress through Midtown, we get closer to the boardwalk and therefore the crowds. For those who would prefer to stay on the mainland, we’ve also included a beach house in West Ocean City – away from the crowds but still close enough to area attractions. In addition to oceanfront condos and homes, we’ve included plenty of bayside options for those looking for calmer waters and beautiful sunsets.
