It's a Condominium in a Townhouse

Century I is the tallest condominium building in Ocean City and has one of the most unique building designs with 185 units in the 25-floor building.  All units have two levels of townhome comfort providing an extra bit of privacy to guests.  There are six different floor plans.  Each unit includes two bedrooms, two bathrooms with vanity areas, large closets, kitchen, dining area and living room with a large foyer connecting the two levels of living space.   All floor plans have a spacious living room with wall-to-wall and floor to ceiling windows leading to the oceanfront or sunset balcony.  Both bedrooms have wall-to-wall floor to ceiling windows and at least one more balcony overlooking the bay or sunset balcony.  These units sell and rent quickly because of all the advantages and amenities that come along with them.  The building has two high-speed elevators, free Wi-Fi, service elevator, lockers, fire alarm and sprinkler systems, pet-walk area, and a large comfortable lobby for gathering the troops.

In-House Vantage Vacation Rental

Vantage Vacation Rentals is located inside our lobby for your convenience and ease of check-in and check-out of your vacation home.  This is our second year working with Vantage.  Of course, we are proud of the relationships we continue to grow with the city's top realtors and rental agencies.  Make your reservations early!

Management Office

Century I's Management Office is located in the main lobby of the building.  The office is small but provides prompt  service to the unit owners in the building.  What really sets it aside from larger offices is the personal and hands-on assistance you receive.  The office is open from 8:00am-5:00pm seven days a week in-season between May to September, and 8:00am-5:00pm Monday through Friday in the off-season from October to April.  The management staff of Val Hunt, Manager, and Donna Marshall, Assistant Manager, take care of all building management services and work with the owners and contractors in scheduling  maintenance calls.  It is not a rental office.

Century I Security Office

In the main lobby next to Vantage Vacation Rentals is Century I's Security Office.  The building is monitored throughout the day by the management and maintenance staff.  In the evening hours, the security guards take over and make their way around the building checking on vehicles and anything that seems out of the ordinary.  The building is protected with security cameras inside and out.  Guards also help with lock-outs and late arrivals. If you need help during the evening hours, call security at (443) 944-5981.  For emergencies dial 9-1-1.
   

At the first sound of a fire alarm, gather your family and exit the building via the closest stairwell.  Proceed down the stairwell to the ground floor and exit the Century I building.  Do not hesitate or wait to see if others are leaving. Please do not run.  'Fire drills' or 'fire alarm tests' are always documented in the lobby and all elevators ahead of time. Therefore, any undocumented Fire Alarm is NOT A DRILL!

Indoor Swimming Pool & Solarium

We've all heard of the dangers of heat and sun that may lead to serious health issues.  If you feel you need a little break from the outdoors, come in and relax in Century I's cool and clean indoor pool. It's a fun-for-all break away from the hot sand and toppling waves. There is also a small solarium on one side of the pool.  Just be sure to wash the sand off of you before entering.  Showers are conveniently located on the side walk-out to the beach.  Lifeguards are not on duty!  Swim at your own risk and do not leave children unattended.

Conveniently located under the lobby entrance are carts for your use when carrying luggage up and down the service elevator.  Please do not keep carts in your room so everyone gets a chance to use them.  During the summer season, Century I offers bell hop services to guests.

Bike Racks

Bikes aren't allowed in the elevators to take up to the rooms.  Therefore, we have made accommodations for them under the lobby for your use.  There are two bike racks.  Bikes should be chained to the rack to prevent stealing.  Century I is not responsible for bikes.

Beachfront Sundeck

Century I has a sundeck with tables on the ocean side of the building right off of the beach.  Gather with friends for an outdoor lunch without sand and oil getting all over your food.  Then sit back and just soak in the beauty of the beach.

Just behind the security office on the lobby floor is Century I's exercise room with sauna and new state-of-the-art equipment.  You will need a code from the office to gain entrance.  Enjoy that big and energizing sunrise view in the early mornings while improving your health and getting ready for a long and fun day ahead.

Surf Fishing

Shark_Dusky_170716.jpg

This fisherman was casting in season just after sunrise and hooked a three foot shark.  Google search suggested it was a somewhat rare and protected Dusky Shark.  After a few pictures, she was returned to the Ocean.

Ocean surf fishing is popular and you can take your pole and bait out to the Century I surf and start casting.  In season surf fishing is limited to any time when the life guards are NOT on the beach.  Surf fishing in front of Century I out of season from October through April is permitted anytime.
