answering guest questions, advising renters of our "must sees," and scheduling the cleaning service upon check-out.  My husband Daniel, who is an optometrist, runs the accounting end of the vacation property.  Our eight year old daughter, Allie, calls the condo her "beach house," and reminds us to listen to and take in the beauty of the beach through her child perspective.  She takes great joy not only in the property amenities, but also the multitude of things that Ocean City has to offer children.

When you stay at Carousel 601, you can expect clean and comfortable accommodations, detailed instructions and recommendations for your stay, rapid response in case you need assistance before or during your stay, and affordable prices. Our private rental property accommodates up to 10 people. You can expect to pay less than you would for hotel accommodations,  while getting more amenities with both beach and bayside views of Ocean City, Maryland.  

Enjoy your stay!

Dan, Shannon & Allie Frantz

Carousel 601 was borne from our own family vacations spent in Ocean City condos for six years, but originates back to college vacations with roommates and earlier to childhood memories vacationing at the downtown motels.  Our desire to purchase a beach property was motivated by a desire to spend time away from our jobs and the stresses of daily life. Hoping to find a condo that we could rent seasonally to help defray costs, we followed the real estate market for three years and scoured the online version of Ocean City Today to find the perfect family vacation spot, one that had amenities for adults and kids, but one large enough to accommodate family and friends, should they tag along for the trip. In Spring 2017, we took a huge risk by purchasing a property that required some TLC, which was completed with a little help from local contractors, but a whole lot of sweat equity.

Eight months later, we began taking direct booking rentals of our condo through family, friends, and social networking, checking our rates against the competition to ensure that our guests received the best deal without the extra booking fees.    We are now going on our third year of sharing our beach property with guests, many returning year after year.  My name is Shannon and I am a high school Hybrid Learning Coordinator.  I taught myself web page design in order to create the Carousel 601  website.
