About Barbara Labe
My husband Jeff and I have been married for over 30 years and we actually spent our honeymoon in Ocean City Maryland! We currently live in Hershey PA, where we spent the past fourteen years together raising our five children; two boys age 27 and 23; and a set of triplets, 2 boys and a girl age 21. Prior to living in Hershey we resided in Smithsburg, Maryland for ten years but we are both originally from Pennsylvania. Our children are all still graduate students or undergrads except for our oldest who is married. Life is very busy with both of us working and visiting the kids at school but we could not be more blessed!
Barbara Labe purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Barbara Labe chose Ocean City
We had been looking for a vacation home for four years but could never find something that really jumped out at us. We would go from the Jersey shores to Maryland looking for something that we 'just had to have' weighing all the options such as; beachfront, bayside, downtown, midtown, with a pool, without a pool, highrise, new construction..... Truly we drove ourselves and the realtor half crazy before we could decide......Until we found this! Well, we feel (and we think that you will agree) that we found ourselves a SLAM DUNK! This place has it all. We love: the floor plan; the location (walk to restaurants, the beach & Seacrets); the balcony (I wanted the whole family to be able to be out together all at the same time); the views (the bay, the ocean, the skyline); having both an indoor & outdoor pool; and our private little bay beach (we love walking out into the bay and digging for clams). All of this coupled with the long family history with Ocean City
What makes this Condo unique
The location is midtown, 2 blocks to the convention center with indoor and outdoor pools and ocean and bay views. We can walk to Seacrets, the convention center and the beach. Ocean City hosts a St. Patricks Day parade each year which passes in front of our condo. and ends with a huge celebration held in the lot beside us. We are told it is a fun time for all - Irish or not.

My girlfriends and I stayed two nights 3/10/17 & 3/11/17 as a girls weekend. The location is great for the south end of Ocean City. The condo was very spacious, clean and the kitchen was well stock for cooking and not cheap items, but well maintained items that worked. What you see in the pictures is exactly the way the place looks: beautiful. The balcony is indescribable. You have to see it to appreciate it. You can see the sun set over the bay and the sun rise above the ocean. What more could you ask for. The only issue we had was finding the indoor pool. There should be a sign indicating it is located on the 1st floor or I over looked it in your paperwork. Your paperwork you provided was very detailed and very helpful. It was a perfect get away weekend! Karen Ritter
Thank you kindly, for taking the time to review my vacation home.
It truly warms my heart to know that I am providing a comfortable place for families and friends to spend quality time together.
My goal is to provide a wonderful place, where people can escape for a while, reconnect and create lasting memories.
It is appreciated that you mentioned the indoor pool location. I will double check my paperwork and add it immediately, to avoid future complication.
I am thrilled that you and your friends are already planning to stay again next year. You treated my home as if it were your own and that is much appreciated. You will always be welcome.
501 Bella vista is the perfect place for your vacation
Location location is what it is all about and 501 Bella vista is a perfect location. The views of the ocean and the bay says it all. You see the sunrise and the sunset. The inside is beautifully decorated and maintained very well and very spacious. If I was looking for anything wrong I would say the kitchen supplies (dishes pots & pans, etc) needs to be address and that’s being picky. If you decide to rent this condo for your vacation you are making the right decision. I will be renting 501 Bella vista again next year
The place was beautiful nice home beautiful view.
Overall we had a great time. Please was beautiful weather not bedrooms. The view was fantastic doing the sunset. I would definitely rent it again
The condo was fabulous. Perfect views of the bay and ocean!
We all really enjoyed our stay at the Bella Vista. It has beautiful views all around and is in close walking distance to night life. One of the days that we stayed, the weather was rainy so we were able to take advantage of the indoor pool and had a great time doing so! The condo is very homey and I would highly recommend!
Beautiful Place with Some Problems!
We all had a great time in Ocean City. It was much too short! The condo had everything we needed and is in a great location not far from the beach. Our criticism was that the cable TV was scrambled many times, the wi-fi was extremely weak, the dishes were dirty and had to be washed before we used them, and we had to go out and buy a large fry pan for scrambled eggs; the existing two large fry pans were so scraped as to be unusable. Also after, booking and paying for the rental, we were told that we had to leave $125 for the maid.
I am very happy that your group had a great time in Ocean City. I try very hard to provide an enjoyable getaway to all of my guests.
I wish you would have called me about the cable and internet, as I would have had it fixed immediately. The moment I read your review I hired a service to install a new cable box and modem. Whew, I'm glad that is fixed! You were the first to mention any problems.
Every year I purchase new cookware, as I did this spring. I am sorry if the pans were scratched. This seems to happen much too quickly, which is why I provide only nylon cooking utensils. Unfortunately, some folks still manage to scratch the surface. New frying pans have been added to the kitchen. The cleaning lady thought the old ones were fine and asked if she could have them. Sure, I said, win, win! I have instructed her to check on the condition of the pans each week.
As per our previous discussion, the payment instruction pertaining to the cleaning lady are on the rental agreement that every guest e-signs before reserving or making a payment on a rental home. The website reminds every guest to read the agreement in full before making a payment and reminds each guest that making a payment is your e-signature on the rental agreement. Once again, I am very sorry that you missed it. I handle the cleaning this way because otherwise guests would pay fees and taxes on the cleaning costs, resulting in about 20% or $25.00 more per stay.
Thank you kindly for choosing my home for your vacation, I hope you made wonderful lasting memories. If you return, I will try my very best to make everything just perfect. Enjoy the remainder of your summer!
Beautiful property and location!
So much more than expected! Lovely condo and the views were magnificent! Such an accessible location, would definitely recommend!
Thank you very much for your kind words and for taking such wonderful care of our home.
It warms my heart to know that I have created a wonderful place for family and friends to come together and escape the demands of everyday life.
Please come back again soon!
