About Julia Howell Barros

We have vacationed for 13 years in Ocean City with grandparents, siblings and children and love all that Ocean City has to offer. We have owned our condo for 4 years and we are pleased to be able to share our home with you!

Julia Howell Barros purchased this condo in 2013

Why Julia Howell Barros chose Ocean City

The Bel Mare is so spacious, luxurious and convenient to so many things, especially the beach, the boardwalk, games and rides and our favorite for ice cream--Dumser's. The pool is an added bonus.

What makes this condo unique

You can drive to this amazing condo and leave your car in the garage because so many attractions are within walking distance.

Family friendly!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row we've stayed in the condo! Great place for a family! Close walk to the beach and boardwalk, yet far enough away that it's not loud at night. Place is well-stocked which makes it easy for cooking in! Plus, you can't beat having a pool for afternoons after the beach! Definitely will stay again!

Best place to stay with the family!

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this rental do not do it justice. It is spacious, gorgeous, and has the convenience of being a block away from the famous O.C. Boardwalk. This place was the perfect rental for our extended family vacation. There were toys, bed rails, and a child-sized table provided; not to mention all of the beach and pool accessories in the hall closet. There were also books to read, coloring books, DVD's, and a Game Cube with multiple game choices for entertainment.

The only things I would change would be for there to be a pantry of some sort for all the food. There were plenty of cabinets, but they were pretty full with dishes which left little room for the provisions we brought. The other change I would suggest would be more seating for meals. There is a round table for 4 plus a breakfast bar with stools for 4, but this condo is for up to 14 people; we were 11 in our group. The only complaint I heard from the family were that the seats at the table were uncomfortable.

Aside from those few things, I can't praise this condo enough. The beds are comfy. There was plenty of room for all of us. The direct access to the pool made us feel like honored guest at the Bel Mare. Of all the places we've stayed in O.C. over the years, this was our favorite! We definitely plan to stay here again!

Could not have been happier!

  • 5 of 5

I almost hesitate to leave a comment because this property is an incredible gem and we want to keep it for ourselves! From check-in (the Rayne couple was so helpful and lovely!) to check-out, it was convenient and expedient and got us in vacation mode instantly. The photos and description simply don't do justice to the incredible space and comfort you will find at this condo. The location is ideal - being a block off of the ocean may seem inconvenient, but when our party of nine (ages 6 to 64) needed to run back for anything it was never an issue and we didn't have to deal with the noise and bustle of the Boardwalk on a nightly basis. And believe me, it's busy on the Boardwalk at all hours it seems! Thank you for sharing your home with us - we're traveling to Scotland next year to celebrate my sister's graduation from St. Andrews, but we all plan to return to The Bel Mare in 2016!

Amazing gem that couldn't be better!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived in front of the building, the first thing we noticed was how clean it was around the property. Then we realized there is ample parking for some of our group, plus great conveniences all around. Upon entering our unit, it was spacious, clean, comfortable, and featured great beachy decor on both floors. The kitchen was beautiful and served our group well for several family-style meals. All-in-all, we loved our trip, thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and cannot wait until next summer to return (and absolutely want the exact same property for our group as the one we stayed at this past summer).

What a great place! We loved it. It has everything you can possibly need for a great relaxed vacation. The rooms are spacious and many people can fit comfortably. The location is perfect. Walking distance to the board walk and beach. I look forward to staying there again.

THE PLACE to stay in Ocean City.

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a clean, spacious, and well furnished place to stay while in Ocean City - look no further. This property is the place to be, with the beach and bay only seconds away. With a pool right out the back door, 3 balconies, and all of the essentials, this property has it all.
