About Josh Broder

We purchased this incredible vacation property in August 2012 to have a great place to relax and unwind with our son Cooper now and in the future. We live and work in CT year round and are looking forward to being in DE more often.

Josh Broder purchased this house in 2012

Why Josh Broder chose Delaware

This property in an incredible find with the 6BR and 4BA because you can have 2-3 families stay together at the same time. The ammenities in this community are second to none and you are less than 3 miles to the ocean and on a golf course.

What makes this house unique

Besides the 27 gole golf course in this community you have tons of other ammenities including pools, tennis courts and a free shuttle to and from the beach. On top of that the 2 car over sized garage has been converted into a huge game room with pool, ping pong, foosball and more which the kids will love!

My siblings and I rented179 Willow Oak as a gathering place for Christmas. The game room was a big hit with everyone and we comfortable cooked our traditional holiday meals. Bbear Trap is very quiet at this time of year - quite peaceful!

Just a Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

Members of my 11 year old soccer team stayed here for a Columbus Day Tournament. The game room was perfect for the boys, the bedrooms were perfect for numerous families and the kitchen fully stocked. We absolutely loved our stay and are hoping to use the house again. Oh, and this was during Hurricane Matthew so we still enjoyed it!!

Great home for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We returned here after staying a week last year. No question that this was a perfect fit for our family. The house is spacious, nicely planned out, and most importantly, has dining room and counter-top seating to accommodate everyone. The community itself is very quiet and beautifully landscaped. We use the beach at Fenwick State Park which is about a 15 minute drive. The kitchen is very user-friendly with lots of storage containers, cookware, etc. A great value as well, compared to what you would pay for something comparable within walking distance to the beach.

Spacious Vacation Home for Large Family

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay at 179 Willow Oak. There was a total of 14 of us and the house was spacious enough for all. The kitchen was amazing and well stocked. We used the grill several times during our stay. The screened porch was a plus. The Master bedroom was loved and used by our older couple and the walk in shower was a plus for them. If you have teenage kids it will be well worth purchasing the recreation badge. Ours used the pool, weight room, tennis courts, golf course and shuttle during our stay. Great get away, yet close to everything. I would highly recommend considering 179 Willow Oak for your vacation stay.

Fantastic Home For Our Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

When we went in the front door of 179 Willow Oak we just stopped for a moment in awe. Not kidding we all were immediately in awe of our surroundings. The "kitchen people". Began opening cupboards and drawers in the kitchen and could not believe how well stocked they were. All the bedrooms were very adequate, comfy beds. This all made for good nights' sleep. The decor is great, it IS a beach house in a kind of upscale community. We did not use the screened-in porch as much as 8 had envisioned because it was very hot and muggy outside but for the times we did use it we enjoyed that. All In all, the property was the background for a fa family vacation celebrating my husband's 75th birthday. I would sincerely reccommend this house for anyone's time away from home. Oh, and we were Family of 13 and had plenty of space for each and every one of us.

Wonderful beach home! All the kitchen supplies were well thought out and more than ample for a family of 13 to be able to cook dinner and breakfast daily. Loved the beachy decor and the mattresses were very comfortable in every room. Large shower heads were a bonus in 2 of the bathrooms! Only thing we would add would be a fire pit out back to gather around.. But maybe Bear Trap doesn't slow that sort of thing. We will look to return again in the future and request this property!

Thank you Broder family!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying at our home. I'm not sure if Bear Trap would allow a fire pit but might be a safety concern for us anyways. We look forward to having you stay with us again soon.
