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.


Fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar and 4 stools features granite counter tops, refrigerator with water dispenser, dishwasher, oven with smooth top range, built in microwave, and garbage disposal. The kitchen also provides all utensils, plates, cookware, baking dishes, coffee maker, toaster, and blender.

Also upstairs on the 3rd floor this nice-sized bedroom features a queen bed, side table, dresser, TV, DVD Player, ceiling fan, nice sized closet, and private bath. This bedroom also has great views of the ocean. Walk back into the hallway and relax on the back deck also with views of the ocean.

After every rental, we ask our guests for suggestions for improvements and make as many as possible during the next off season. We hope you will enjoy our property as much as we do!

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 Eastern Shore

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!

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!!

Another wonderful stay!

  • 4 of 5

This was our 2nd year staying in Bella Mar A and we enjoyed it tremendously yet again!! The townhouse is extremely well maintained, very well stocked (there are many items we did not bring with us this year knowing how well stocked the unit was the prior year), so convenient to the beach and restaurants. We especially like the location since it is away from the hustle and bustle and younger adults down near the boardwalk.

Thank you again Debbie and Karl for allowing us to stay in your townhome and since we were returning guests, we were able to request the same week in advance which is very much appreciated!

Wonderful week in Ocean City

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this townhouse in Ocean City. Check-in and check-out easy. The condo was clean and neat with everything needed to start our week. Great location close to some really great restaurants. Hooked is a must for great seafood. Very nice beach. We took the bus to the boardwalk. There are so many things to do in close proximity to the condo. Debbie and Karl were great to work with. We had intranet problems. They were quick to react in solving the issue. The notebook they have was full of great info. to make our stay a success. Overall we had a wonderful week thanks to Debbie and Karl.

Our SECURITY DEPOSIT is higher for 1st time renters to protect ourselves. We return it all unless there is a problem. Our house keeper calls us upon checkout to report the condition and assuming there aren't any problems (which we haven't had as of yet), we return the security deposit at that time.
