Mini-weeks: we will rent a partial week within 2 weeks of the arrival date if it is still available -- but our preference is the full week rental.Top
Is there any night security checks or anything else that we need to know when we arrive?You have the keys and the tags. When you arrive, you need to register with the security team at the parking garage. Security is 24x7. They will ask you what unit # you are staying in and want to get information on you and your car. After registering, you unpack the car in the designated area and use the carts to take your belongings to the unit.Top

How far of a walk is it to the beach/town?OC MD goes from division stree to 142 street -- so we are right in the city. We walk right out the door and are on the beach. When our family goes to our SeaWatch units, we park the car in the garage and never have to drive again until we leave.Top

How do you calculate the 30% rental fee deposit?It is 30% of the base rental fee. You do not need to make a deposit on the taxes, security deposit or key deposit. For example, if the rental fee is $1799, the deposit would be 30% of $1799 or $540.Top

Do you provide linens (sheets & bath towels)?When you enter the unit, all the beds will have covers and bed spreads. They will NOT have sheets and pillow cases. There are NO bath towels. There are linens in the closets, but they are not "managed". We do NOT include linens as part of the rental. If they are there and you can use them, great. If you use them, please launder and return them. We consider them spares and would recommend you bring your own linens. We will pass on this recommendation/information (from our realtor, not us): OC Beach and Linen Rental 1-800-422-2742 or 410-524-7057.Top
Can you get to balcony from master bdrm only? From any other rooms can you see view of ocean?There are doors to the balcony from the living room and the master bedroom in 1303 and from the great room in 1312. You can view the ocean from the kitchen (both units), living room (1303), master bedroom(1303) and great room (1312). We have a mirror wall in the living room of 1312 (planned for 1303 in the near future), so you almost always have a view.Top
Do you have beach chairs?We do not provide beach chairs, but sometimes they are left in our laundry room. If they are there, you are welcome to use them.Top
What is the parking situation? What if I wanted to park on the street - would that be an easy thing to do?From Mid May until the end of September, SeaWatch Management charges $40 for the stay to park in the secure garage on the property. As of July 4, 2014 SeaWatch started enforcing a 2 car per unit limit. Gold coast mall is across the street, but you park at your own risk. The closest bet for on street parking would be bayside.Top
I had a question about parking. Is it underground/garage style or are there also Sea-Watch-only open spaces? We were considering using one of those top-of-car luggage carriers, which probably makes our car too tall to fit in a garage.The secure parking garage has 5 levels, but most likely the top luggage carrier will be too tall for the garage. We have used one in the past, and it does NOT fit. Sea watch has 6 spaces out front, but they are often taken. You can take your cargo box off the roof and store it in the garage (this is where you make friends with the security guards) – just label it with masking tape; there is a storage area behind the carts.Top
What is your policy on security deposits?It could take up to 5 weeks after you check out to refund any deposits. We are looking to get the keys and tags back from you in a timely manner and a positive inspection report from our cleaning crew before we refund the deposits. Sorry, security deposits are no fun for us either.Top
Do you cash my security deposit check?In the past, we did not cash the deposits, but we got burned on that. We try to be fair and yet protect ourselves. We decided we need to cash deposit checks, but we will wait until the arrival date to do so. To be quite frank, it would be so nice to not even bother with deposits, but it’s just not practical.Top
Can I put the security deposit on my credit card?Yes. There is a 5% surcharge on all credit card charges. This surcharge is not returned.Top
We are thinking of bringing our bicycles with us. Is there anywhere we could ride them? Are they allowed by the beach? Where can we store the bikes?You can store your bikes in the locked bike room in the garage. You get the keys at the security desk. You can bike everywhere. You can ride bikes on the Boardwalk; just be aware that the hours are restricted in season to before 10am. North Shore Park (128th St. on the bay) has several paths for biking and running. We ride bikes almost every visit to OC MD. We usually try to ride the smaller side streets, although there are biking lanes on both sides of the Main Road.Top
How many tennis courts are there? Is there a fee to use them?There are 3 lighted tennis courts. There is no additional fee to use them. They are only available for use by guests of SeaWatch.Top
What is the WIFI code?1312+1303 - The WIFI unit (router) is located in the kitchen of 1303 and in the great room in 1312. Occassionally the router may need to have power cycled. SeaWatch has free wifi in the atrium and the pool areas. OC is a wifi city so you can purchase days online for it. And last, but not least, I always am able to find a wifi that I can connect to every visit.Top
What is the approximate size (area) of the unit?Each unit (we have 2, 1303 and 1312) is approximately 850 square feet.Top

What are the check in and check out times?Check in is 4pm and check out is 10am. Having stated that, you will have the keys and tags. This is not a hotel, but a privately owned condo – so there is no formal check in/out. We set the times in our agreement to have a window for the cleaners to get their job done. You are welcome to use any of the amenities in SeaWatch (pools, game rooms, tennis courts…) anytime on your arrival and departure days – but we do ask you to honor being out of the unit on time so we can get it cleaned for the next guest. If you arrive and the cleaners have finished, you are welcome to use the unit before 4pm.Top
