We had a lovely stay !!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying that we had never been to Bethany Beach before. We were very pleasantly surprised both by the beach atmosphere and the home itself. The beach is family friendly and Fenwick state park is low stress if you go at off times of day even though we were in season.

The home was very spacious for a town house and very well equipped. We had 9 people in my family and none of us felt crowded or put out. The kitchen was extremely well stocked and the TVs were big and nice for the kids. The grill worked great and we really enjoyed sitting out on the back screened in porch. The only glitch we had was that the washing machine had a kind of electrical problem so it kept running but Steve called in the problem and a man came out and took care of it pretty quickly. Steve was very friendly and gracious and called to make sure that everything was ok when we checked arrived. All in all a really great experience!!

Very nice home and exactly as pictured on the VRBO site.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this home January 14-21 2018. We were surprised to see all the snow in Delaware when we arrived but had no difficulty accessing the home as the driveway and steps and porch were cleared for our arrival. The home is welcoming and cozy with all the modern conveniences we needed. Bethany Beach, Fenwick Island and Ocean City are all close by. We cooked in and also went out to a few very good restaurants such as Harpoon Hannah's and A Touch of Italy. Staying for the week allowed us the time to review some real estate listings as we are planning a move in the future to this area. Would love to return to this property when the weather is warmer to be able to take advantage of all the amenities Bear Trap Dunes has to offer.

A final note-this home is beautifully decorated and was immaculate when we arrived. This makes all the difference to me when I am renting. Not one issue the whole week and the owners were extremely cordial and welcoming. Will definitely return.
