Bear Trap Dunes villa description

Beautifully decorated upper end Villa close to Pavilion and pool.

This 3 bedroom 3 bath villa is perfect for a family. One king in the master and 4 twins make it work well for a family with children or a group of adults. We can help you find nearby units so large family groups can stay close together. Our unit is an easy walk to the Pavilion, tennis courts, indoor pool, exercise room, club house and restaurant.

You'll find a fully stocked kitchen. Enjoy your meals on the screened porch or deck overlooking the water. The large grassy courtyard is a great place for games with the kids.

The beach shuttle stops every 1/2 hour at our court for an air conditioned ride to the beach. Guests over 4 yrs of age will need to purchase a badge to use the shuttle and other Bear Trap amenities.

We have a large number of repeat renters. You will find yourself at home here also.

                  You will find lots of recommendations in our guest book about favorite places and restaurants. One of my favorite things to do is ride bikes to the near by Camp Barnes which has a packed sand road through the pine woods to a very secluded place on the bay. Along the way there is a fire tower which you can climb for a view towards Ocean City. Great!

                  I would be happy to help you find this and other places to ride or take the dog or your boat to a shallow bay site.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: Having grown up in Bethesda MD, I was one of the zillions of kids who spent time in Rehoboth each summer. After college and marriage took me to Pennsylvania it was many years and 4 kids later that I found my way back to the beach I loved. Our family started vacationing in Bethany and we found Bear Trap and love it! Now the grandchildren are coming. You will find Bethany Beach a very family friendly place.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bear Trap Dunes:
                  Having a pool was important to us. It's great to have the indoor and outdoor pool, tennis courts and exercise options at the Pavilion. We picked this villa because of the fantastic light and space the upper end unit has. Not only does our family love it but is works perfectly for girls shopping weekends or golf get-a-ways.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  With one king and 4 twins this unit works great for families. The third bathroom is fantastic. Our location is close to the Pavilion so everyone can walk to the pool, tennis courts, basketball, playground and restaurant. Our Villa is located on the largest grass courtyard in Bear Trap so it's great for games of ball and frisbie.
