Our kitchen is fully equipped to delight any chef from gourmet cooks to deserving moms wanting to take it easy. Leave your kitchen at home. We’ve thoughtfully provided just about every essential you can think of from salad spinner to pancake griddle.

                  Located 3 1/2 miles from the Atlantic Ocean in resort community of Bear Trap Dunes. The best of both worlds - resort amenities and the beach too! We know families love to vacation together. So we’ve included two equally luscious master suites. Elegant bedding and plush mattresses were selected after much rest-testing to wrap you in luxury. On the main level is our Master Suite with understated elegance. This is not your usual rental flair - and the king mattress so very comfortable you won’t want to go home. Second floor accommodations are equally amazing. Cozy loft area provides a getaway space near upper master. The Marrakech Suite provides elegance with vivid colors and a touch of the exotic, as you drift asleep in another plush king size bed. Both masters enjoy spa like privacy in coordinated baths with soaking tubs and tiled showers. Our home is designed to be both elegant and comfortable at once. We believe in pampering our guests - so we've tried to think of everything you will need for a fantastic family vacation.

                  Golf: Located on the Green steps from the driving range at Bear Trap Dunes Resort and Golf Club. Our home has accommodations for 8 golfers in individual beds. We can sleep a total of 12 family members. Large rec room in basement has casino bar, bumper pool table, Foosball table, poker table, large screen TV and lots of room to spread out. Beds are ultra comfortable. Gas grill. Golfers get discounts at nearby Bayside Resort and Golf Club - ask about details. Our game room is perfect for after hours. Our location is right on the Green - near the Bistro with casual dining and bar. We are a few seconds down from the Pro shop, and bag-drop. The fitness room, indoor pool, sauna and hot tub at the Pavilion is a minute walk away. Lots of off street parking directly behind the home.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: We love the Coastal Delaware area. After vacationing there as renters for many years we decided to take the plunge and become owners. We pride ourselves on service and strive to set up our homes in a way that we would find ideal if we were the renter.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bear Trap Dunes:
                  It offers a perfect combination of ocean, resort amenities, and an abundance of things to do in the area - from shopping to surfing.
