Located ocean side on 78th street in midtown Ocean City, MD, Bella Mar, Unit A is just a short walk to the beach. No high rises and very little development on the bay side make 78th street very quiet and this beach is one of the least densely populated in Ocean City! It's a great spot for families with children and couples who want a truly restful vacation. Within walking distance to some great restaurants and a short drive to the grocery store. Bus service is terrific here.

About Debbie and Karl Dagg

Our parents owned a condo in Ocean City. They took it off the rental market the summer of 2009 so we were able spend a lot of time there with our 3 kids. They were at an age when going to beach was finally manageable. We really enjoyed our trips and considered purchasing a unit of our own as theirs was being sold. It was just an 'dream' and one that we thought wouldn't happen for a long time. We ended up stumbling on our 1st Ocean City property, Captain's Bridge - also on 78th street, and had such success with it, that we jumped on this property when it became available. We just love 78th Street and it's relatively quiet, uncrowded charm.

Debbie and Karl Dagg purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Debbie and Karl Dagg chose Ocean City

While spending a weekend in our other property on 78th street (Captain's Bridge), we stumbled into an open house for this property. We were just curious what this 'newer', 3 story townhouse building looked like inside. We were amazed with its size, how well decorated it was, and its great views of the ocean and bay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a terrific family vacation while staying at your Bella Mar home at the beach. I tried to write a very positive response about our vacation on a VBRO request but could not get it to send.

We loved your house. It was a short easy walk to the beach. The house was so clean and well equipped. The 4 bedrooms fit our family so nicely. We enjoyed eating and talking on the balconies. The huge couch was very comfortable.

We treasure all the memories our family made. We thank you for sharing your home with us. Our vacation time was great!

A year 5 review...

  • 5 of 5

This has been my groups 5th consecutive year staying at Bella Mar. Every year it continues to be a great place to reconnect with friends and share stories. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a very hassle free and relaxing stay in Ocean City. Owners are very communicative and definitely take pride in their place. Always look forward to renting with them when I'm in the area.

Extremely clean & well equipped. The decor was beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our family. We enjoyed sitting on the 4 balconies & could see both the ocean and the bay.The house was spacious and provided for a relaxing stay. An added bonus was the lifeguard who was stationed at the end of the street. It was great to have the beach equipment and bicycles to use during the week.

Nice place !

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Bella Mar A was an overall good experience. The townhouse is very nice and comfortable and conveniently located between the ocean and the bay. The beach was never very crowded, which was pleasant. Debbie and Karl are very thoughtful regarding their guests, and are quick to respond to any requests or concerns before, and during your stay.

The storage unit with the bikes and beach toys was a nice additional feature and our grandchildren happily took full advantage. The front balconies were nice for sitting and enjoying the scenery. A few things that you may want to take into consideration when renting this property is the amount of steps inside going from each level, and the traffic noise since it's near the Coastal Highway. Other than that we had a great time !

Condo is absolutely beautiful better than expected.

  • 5 of 5

Condo was really so very beautiful, well maintained and fully equipped for all our needs.

The weather wasn't very good the week we were there and caused us to stay in the condo more than we normally would have had the weather been better. We never felt crowded or uncomfortable, condo is very large and spread out with plenty of space to go enjoy some quiet time. There are great views of the ocean and bay from the multiple balconies on both sides of the condo. The owners were accommodating and attentive to our emails and great answered any and all questions promptly. Would highly recommend this condo for rental, it will not disappoint.

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect vacation home for a large family group. It so clean, well equipped and beautifully furnished. We had my 2 sons and their families of 4 as well as my husband and myself. Each family had their own space and bathroom. The large open living area was great so everyone could visit whether lounging, eating or cooking. The balconies just added to the experience with views of sunrise and sunsets. The 78th Street location was very close to food stores, shopping, and restaurants. We can't wait to come back again next year.

Thank You Debbi and Karl Dagg for your hospitality and attention to detail and our needs.

Great Location and Views!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your place! The views from the decks are fantastic and the house was great! We really enjoyed having the ability to spread out on the 3 floors. The house is great and we had plenty of room for the 9 of us. There was a small problem which Carl called and told us about prior to check in and it was fixed immediately. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! Great location and views!!
