Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at your place. The view of the tidal lake and wildlife islands is tough to beat. We spent most of our 'home time' around your porch table. We just love Mallard Lakes....We really enjoy renting your beach home!

Perfect location & cute home

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Close to everything but in a very quiet community. Mostly retirees and families. Most days we drove up to Delaware Seashore beaches because we just love it there, but Fenwick is closer and very nice too. Drove to OCMD a few times for pirate ship, boardwalk, dinner.

House is well-stocked and in great shape. Rear screened in porch is absolutely perfect for morning coffee, evening dinners, family board games, and watching lots of birds coming & going to their nests! So comfortable. Got steamed crabs up the street one night (& house had everything we needed to eat them!). Could have skipped the amenity fee since we barely used the pools. When we did, they were well-maintained. Oh well! AC works well. Ceiling fans downstairs kept nice air movement. Living room is comfortable with a big TV. Owner super-responsive if any problems (we had a small issue with cable due to lightning in area & owner took care of it immediately). Small washer & dryer were helpful to have. Owner provided use of really nice beach chairs & toys that we used everyday. Huge shower/tub with skylight. Just a great place. Highly recommend!

highly recommend. lovely well maintained condo and condo community. family oriented. friendly neighbors. peaceful view from porch with lots of beautiful birds. nests of Blue heron. Condo well equipped with anything you need to cook if you choose to. convenient to grocery stores, restaurants, and both the lower DE beaches and North OC as well. we liked the area so much , we viewed three condos for sale. this is not a five star hotels, but who wants that? clean and comfortable is always best. owner very responsive. some kinks with managing real estate company but quickly resolved. Thank you for a great stay Rob.

nice holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent a relaxing, enjoyable week. This was our 3rd time to spend vacation in Ocean City, 2nd time in Mallard Lakes. Between Delaware and Maryland, you enjoy your stay in this lovely welcome States for guests. The property we stayed in, was in a very good condition. Thanks to owner and administration team of Mallard Lakes. Only one thing, about the pool, on Friday, we surprised that is the pool was closed as expecting storm, and it was no storm at all, it was a regular cloudy day. Within the week we spent, my husband and kids used the pool twice and I used the pool one day. I wish for future consideration, for people leaving Saturday, they like to use the pool before they leave. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.

Have family in Mallard Lakes so perfect location for us. Mallard Lakes is very well maintained and manicured. Condo had fully equipped kitchen. Love love love the screened in back porch. Appreciated the WiFi and beach chairs/sand toys. Everything was as promised. Only one very small complaint was the shrub/tree outside the spare bedroom needs trimmed back away from the condo. When the wind blows it sounds like nails on a chalkboard. Think it is scraping the gutter. One recommendation...a small TV in the spare bedroom for the kids. The one day it rained so hard I would have appreciated an extra TV so I wouldn't have to watch Cartoon Network or Sports Center:) May not have crossed my mind if it didn't rain. Recommend Fenwick State Park for beach outings. Very close with restrooms, food, etc. Crab cake factory for awesome crab cakes and crab nachos! Jungle Jim's or Jolly Roger waterparks were both fun in there own way. Will definitely stay there again! Thanks for sharing your home!

Very nice place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this clean, comfortable home was better than we could have wished for! It's convenient to everywhere, the neighborhood amenities are terrific, and the home itself is both well equipped and more than adequate for our family of five. We selected this home because of the positive reviews it received from other guests, and we were not disappointed.

My kids have already asked when we can go back to the "house with the outside shower" so we'll defintely be return guests.

Thank you for sharing your home with us,

My only hesitation in writing this review is that I don't want to tip off too many people to this place that I can't get the week I want next year! But, the owner deserves it for keeping such a nice, comfortable rental. My husband, 5 year old son, and I spent a week here and absolutely loved it. The place is so tastefully decorated (not over-the-top kitschy beach, but understated and artful beach motifs). The kitchen is well stocked with equipment better than some of my own at home. This helped us thoroughly enjoy meals on the 3-season porch with beautiful views of one of the lakes (with frequents sightings of ducks and herons).

We loved the location - short drive to the beach, but right across from the community pool (which is very well maintain). Nice restaurants nearby as well as mini-golf and even pirate adventures (oh yeah, and Fisher's Popcorn)! All far enough away from the OC commercial area, but close enough to enjoy if you'd like.

The owner was very responsive to questions.
