Private Homes, Undesignated house description

Think back to the magical feeling of a summer day at the beach - the warm sun, soft sand and cool waves. This is the place that rekindles the spirit of carefree times and lets you create warm memories of cherished moments with family and friends. This is 'Sunny Beach'.

We chose our dream vacation home at Bear Trap Dunes because of its location in Ocean View (2.5 mi. to the beach), the family friendly and lovely small town atmosphere (front porches, parks, sidewalks, holiday parades, tree-lined streets and friendly neighbors), and the amenities (27 hole championship golf course, beautiful club house with fine and casual dining, driving range, pro shop, 2 outdoor pools, kiddy pools, playground, whirlpool, M&F saunas, 5 tennis courts, fully equipped health club and a community center for larger get-togethers).

Step up to the wide front porch with its comfy rockers for relaxing with a book and a nice 'beach cooler'. Inside our designer decorated home, the ceramic tiled center hallway leads back to the large great room. The walls in the main areas are a cheerful yellow that catch the light and lift your spirits. The great room, where everyone gathers, is bright, airy and very comfortably furnished. You'll find a gas fireplace and a large screen TV with DVD player. There is a built-in floor to ceiling bookcase that houses the AM/FM/Stereo/CD/Tape player along with a great selection of videos, music, books and games. There is also an IPOD/MP3 player.

The gourmet kitchen is the heart of this wonderful room. Here you can prepare your family meals and stay right in the middle of the conversation and laughter while doing so. A large counter with stools separates the kitchen's work area and allows people to chat, snack and listen to the music at the end of a beautiful beach day.
There's also a large 'butler's pantry' with lots of storage that connects the kitchen to the main dining room that seats eight around a large square table. Alongside the kitchen is the casual dining area with a table and six chairs and sliding doors leading to the screened porch, deck, backyard and pond. Evenings often find us out on the porch relaxing, talking and watching the ducks, herons and birds out on the pond. The porch leads out to the large, private deck where the sunbathers and barbequers like to hang out. After dinner we like to take a walk around the village, taking in the coolness of the evening, thankful for a beautiful day and thinking about what tomorrow will bring.

Our newly furnished home features a first floor master suite with queen sized bed, and private, beautifully tiled bath with separate soaking tub and shower. Upstairs are two bedrooms with a connecting bath and a smaller bedroom with a desk for your laptop and a double futon sofa that can comfortably sleep two kids or one adult. The washer/dryer are in the utility room which leads to the two-car garage. The house also features a lovely back yard that backs to a quiet pond and has an enclosed outdoor shower for washing off after the beach. Directly across the street is a lovely little 'pocket park' for a good ball toss and where you can catch the shuttle to the beach.

                      • A Fabulous Week at "Sunny Beach"

                        A Fabulous Week at "Sunny Beach"

                        • Guest Sandra (New York City, New York - USA)

                        Last summer we rented "Sunny Beach" for a week in July and loved it so much that we are returning this summer. We were six people (my sister and I and 4 grandchildren - ages 10 to 19), but the house easily sleeps 8 or 9. As soon as we stepped through the front door, we all felt at home. "Sunny Beach" is beautifully and tastefully decorated in soft colors, comfortable, and spotlessly clean. There is a beautiful master bedroom and bath on the main floor with 3 bedrooms upstairs. There is a lovely front porch where you can sit and relax and a large back deck - half of which is screened in if you want to barbeque and eat outside; the other half is open for sunbathing. The owners have thought of everything you could possibly want or need - a well-stocked kitchen, books, games, TVs, videos, music, information on nearby shopping and restaurants, places of interest and things to do. The grounds are beautifully landscaped; there is a club house, gym, and 3 pools (2 outdoor, 1 indoor). There is also golf and tennis - something for everyone. If you don't want to drive to the beach (which is less than 3 miles away) you can take the shuttle bus which stops a few steps away from the house and drops you off at the beach. You can also take any beach equipment (chairs, umbrellas, etc.) onto the shuttle. Bethany Beach is half-way between Rehoboth and Ocean City, each an easy drive away. We all had such a good time that it was difficult to leave and we can't wait to return this summer.

                        Recommended for: Sightseeing, families with young children, romantic getaway, age 55+, families with teenagers.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: Mature married couple with two married children and five grandchild.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Undesignated:
                      We've been coming to the Delaware and Maryland shore for decades - since we were teenagers. We love the wide, beautiful white sand beaches, the fishing, the restaurants and family vacations where memories are made. We also love eating crabs!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The community is lovely - wide, well lit streets, small parks, pools, tennis and golf right at your finger tips. It's reminiscent of a classic small town - houses with front porches, friendly people, and a 4th of July parade. We also have a pond in our back yard that attracts ducks, geese, heron, and a wide variety of colorful birds. The living is easy with rockers on the front porch, a screened-in back porch with table and chairs for dining, and a deck for sunbathing and barbequeing.
