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 Maryland

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Barbara, Just wanted to let you know what a great time we had in Ocean City. Your condo is lovely and the location was perfect. Thanks for sharing your home with us. We'll definitely look you up next year if we decide to do a seashore vacation. Thanks again.

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

Owner's Response: Karen, 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. Sincerely, Barbara

Perfect location! Great view and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this property. The owner Barbara, was so personable and always responded right away if I had questions.

The location is perfect, within walking distance to Seacrets, Fager's Island, Fractured Prune, Dunkin Donuts, and Johnny's Pizza, just to name a few! You can also hop on the bus and go to the boardwalk or North OC without having to be on the bus forever.

Our favorite feature of this condo was the huge wrap around balcony. It can be accessed from the master as well as two points in the main living area. The view of the bay is beautiful, so close you can hear the water. You can also see across the highway to the ocean and people watch at the restaurant below. There are a few chairs and a little high top seating area that we really enjoyed, perfect place for morning coffee or evening wine!

The condo is a nice size and very bright and clean. The kitchen is a good size with a nice long bar to sit at, and there is also a table and chairs to accommodate a group. Each room has its own bath which almost tied the balcony for the favorite feature award. The master bath is huge with a separate tub and shower. We loved it.

The property also has two pools. The outside pool is out on the bay and has a grill that you can use. There is also a restroom. We spent a lot of time enjoying this area.

We had six adults and two toddlers in our group, and we stayed for seven days. We were so comfortable there that we did not want to leave! My children still ask if we can go "back to condo?"

We would absolutely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Allyn, Thank you very much for your kind words. It was an absolute pleasure to have you and your lovely family stay at our vacation home. It sounds as though you made some lasting memories there, which is my ultimate goal. I truly hope you consider coming back again and again. I hope to continue to make improvements to our home that will enhance your vacation enjoyment. Two items we are considering this year are a larger TV in the living room and more patio furniture. When the cleaning lady arrived just after your check-out, she immediately texted me with the remark, "these people were wonderful". That has never happened before, so I must also say, thank you for being clean, courteous and conscientious. Please let me know what would make you enjoy your stay even more in the future. Sincerely, Barbara

Beautiful condo and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Condo was gorgeous and had all amenities a family could need. I never missed being ocean front. The balcony and pool area were ideal to enjoy the sights and sun. My teenagers asked if we could stay there again vs our usual condo.

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a great long weekend at this condo! The property was just perfect. The condo was spacious with plenty of beds and bathrooms. The balcony was huge and had a beautiful view of both the ocean and the bay. The outdoor pool overlooked the bay and was a great place for us to relax each afternoon. The location of the condo was perfect, we were able to walk to Seacrets and take the bus to the boardwalk. I would highly recommend staying in this fabulous condo!
