Property description

Comfortable elegance! That’s the way to enjoy your next vacation at Duffer’s Escape. Our guests agree we’ve got the very best town home within the award winning Bayside Resort! Perfectly located at just 4 miles west of the classic beach town of Fenwick Island, DE and the excitement of Ocean City. Your family will love the plush yet comfortable surroundings in this sought after vacation home directly across from the pool. Make Bayside Resort your destination vacation for family fun, golf and rejuvenation any time of the year.

In the village you will enjoy first class resort amenities such as beautiful SunRidge pool, fun splash zone for kids, spacious hot tub, tennis courts, multi function sports court, plus a host of activities in season. Adventurers can kayak the bay, fish on the pier or admire the skyline of Ocean City from The Point. Kids can romp in the play grounds, crab from the pier or enjoy the nature trails. Watch live entertainment in season at the Freeman Stage. Tee off at the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course run by Troon. Shoppers will never be bored as they can scout the trendy boutiques and world famous tax-free outlets. Nearby boardwalks in Bethany and O.C. - amusement parks too! After sun and surf, choose between active nightlife, historic towns, or family down-time.

After a day basking at the best beaches of the ‘Quiet Resorts’ along the shore or enjoying the fabulous amenities in the village, you will relax and rejuvenate in your beautifully decorated vacation home. Relax on one of two covered porch decks. Enjoy connecting with family and friends in a spacious Great Room with ample seating around the gas fireplace and 42 inch flat screen HDTV.

Dine in comfort in the oversized Gathering Room/country kitchen with seating for 10 and more at the bar. Everyone from gourmet cooks to deserving moms will enjoy the kitchen where everything is top-notch. You will find countless kitchen conveniences at your fingertips where we frequently hear; “I wanted to take your kitchen home with me”. Booster seats and kid-ware makes dining with munchkins easier. Bring your laptop and set up your office away from home at the desk.

Everything about this vacation home says we believe in pampering our guests. We welcome children of all ages and feature accommodations for multiple families. Perfect for four golfers. To help contain the smallest of travelers you will also find a pack and play.

Fun is the name of the game at Duffer’s Escape. The first level sports the 19th Hole Family Game Room with 50-inch HDTV, comfy viewing area, pub table, and foosball. There’s even a Wii to entertain the kids. Of course we have a selection of family games.

There is so much to do in the Fenwick/Bethany area you might not want to sleep! But when sleepy time comes at our Duffer’s Escape you will be cuddling up in comfort. Elegant bedding and plush mattresses were selected to wrap you in luxury. All bedrooms were decorated with a unique flair.

The Master Casablanca Suite with 'Tommy Bahama decor' brings you a different 'Bogie' experience. Elegance at the beach provides an ultra comfortable queen bed, spacious private bath huge shower, dual sinks, and romantic soaking tub for a spa-inspired evening. Equally inviting accommodations are available in the Pebble Beach Room with queen size comfort tastefully decorated with crisp white and nautical blue.

Versatility is the name of the game if your game calls for more than doubles. You can stow up to four kids away for evening adventures in our Caddy Shack Room. Here a loft over double bed with trundle provides for maximizing sleeping accommodations. Of course, all bedrooms have cable TV and DVD’s. Bringing along extra folk to your seaside adventure? Sleeping accommodations for stow-a-ways are top-of-the line. Our sleep sofa is equipped with the latest sleep-sofa technology so plush it actually feels like a real bed. Bed Summary: (2Q, pyramid loft over double with trundle, Q sleeper.

What other extras can you expect at this Duffer's Escape? Free wireless Internet access, 2 HDTVs, and 5 DVD players. Linens, hairdryers, beach chairs, umbrellas, and toys mean you have more room in the car for people instead of 'stuff'!

Sorry, NO pets allowed anytime, and smoking is strictly prohibited. Amenities fees are optional and assessed by Resort for use of their facilities.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We loved vacationing at the shore so much that we bought our own place. We think you will agree that our home is set up to be the most renter-friendly home ever! Comfortable elegance is our goal.

Why the Owner Chose Fenwick Island:
We absolutely love Bayside! We have made wonderful family memories during our own 'beach week'. We never run out of things to do - from Grandpa taking the older boys golfing to the babies splashing in the pool and mom's connecting again.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
What a wonderful place to vacation! Pools, water features, hot tub, tennis courts, kayaking, biking, walking and nature trails, sports courts, crabbing, performances, special activities, and golf. We absolutely love it here!
