                                                            Lamont M.

                                                            Our stay was great, the house was more than we bargained for. The first floor Master Suite was off the charts in terms of space and functionally. If I could, I would take the shower home to New York. The kitchen served our every need and we took turns on cooking on that monster of a stove. We totally enjoyed the area, Bethany Beach, Ocean City my family enjoyed it all. Bob was a big help in getting my family settled into the house. Bob answer all of our questions and pointed us to some great eating places. Overall the trip was more than what we asked for and to a person we all want to return to Delaware some day soon. Much thanks to you and your team.

                                                            Dear Lamont,

                                                            Thank you and your family for choosing our home for your vacation. We enjoyed having such a lovely family! I am so glad that you enjoyed the spaciousness of the home, the gourmet kitchen, and all the amenities of the resort. It was such a pleasure planning with you, and I am so happy that the vacation was so enjoyable. Please return soon, we would love to have your family stay again! Warmly, Alicia

                                                            Above and beyond other homes at Bear Trap

                                                            Josh R.

                                                            We had a one-week rental at this huge, lovely, and luxurious house with our two young kids, my brother's young family, and my parents. We've stayed in other Bear Trap houses and this one is quite unique - the photos are great but don't do it full justice. It's about 3/4 mile to the Pavilion and main pool but a very short walk to the October Glory pool. Alicia was responsive and pleasant to work with - we especially appreciate her flexibility on dates and her stocking up on preschool-age toys before our arrival. Unfortunately the dryer was not functional, and as I understand it is being replaced; the dishwasher also had some issues. The luxury kitchen with high-end appliances is fully stocked for cooking and entertaining. Compared to other Bear Trap houses there were a few less amenities (no beach chairs/umbrellas, board games, etc) and the wireless was spotty, but on the plus side the air hockey table and corn hole kept the kids occupied for hours. As a bonus there is a terrific office space for those who can't fully get away while on vacation. Would recommend getting the linen package. In all it was a memorable and very positive experience and we'd certainly come back again.

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            Dear Josh,

                                                            We are so glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay at our home. Everyone tells me the photos do not do it justice, wish I were a better photographer! The new dryer is being installed next week, and I ordered a new wifi router, and new beach chairs based on your comments, (thank you for informing me)

                                                            It's great to hear that you liked our home so much more than the other homes you previously stayed in. When you return, I want to make sure that all is perfect for your family! Hope to see you soon, and thank you for staying at our home. Warmly, Alicia

                                                            It is a great house. It is larger than we imagined.

                                                            Joseph G.

                                                            The house was built with an upscale eye. The Master Bath is very well done. It has a great shower and two counters with a sink for his and hers and a separate room for the essentials.

                                                            The Community is very nice and we visited two of the pools on the property. They are very nice, the smaller less crowded and the larger more crowded, but a great size.

                                                            The bus service from the Community to Bethany Beach center was convenient, but the beach was crowded (probably always during this time of the year). We drove to a State Park (Towers Beach) about 15 minutes and $10 dollars for parking, out of state ($5 for in state). The park was not as crowded.

                                                            Dear Joe, I am so glad that you and your family enjoyed the home. The large size does make it quite comfortable for our guests, but it always nice to hear that you enjoyed the space. I am glad that you took advantage of some of the resort amenities like the pool and beach shuttle. You are wonderful guests, and welcome to come back anytime!

                                                            MattPittsburgh, PA

                                                            An unfortunate turn of events left us to having to find a new rental home less than 24hrs before our trip. I was able to contact Alicia (owner) and she was extremely responsive and a real pleasure to deal with. We found the home to be clean and inviting. The home was very large and comfortable, we had 4 adults and 4 children and the home was more than big enough, it could comfortably fit many more. The neighborhood had 3 pools and many other amenities including a beach shuttle ($40 fee per anyone over 5yrs old for the week). We found 1 pool (kid friendly) to be within in walking distance, the other 2 were a short drive away all were clean and well kept. The home has a house manager who is local to the area, we found him to be very responsive and knowledgeable about the area. We would not hesitate to stay here in the future. I cannot praise the owner enough she took an otherwise stressful situation and helped to turn it into a very enjoyable vacation.

                                                            Dear Matt,

                                                            It was such a pleasure having you and your family stay at our home for your vacation. I am so happy we were able to work things out for the week. It is stressful having to switch your plans last minute, so I am very happy that the home worked out so well. The amenities at Bear Trap are very family friendly, with the three pools and the beach shuttle allowing guests the option of either enjoying the three community pools or taking the shuttle to the beach. I am glad your enjoyed the spaciousness of the home, everyone has room to chill out, which is what we all need in a vacation!

                                                            Please return anytime, we look forward to seeing you and your family again! Thank you for taking the time to write your lovely review, Matt.

                                                            We enjoyed a fabulous stay at this beautiful home. We had family coming and going, enough space to accommodate all. The complex is full of family fun, we took advantage of tennis, swimming and golf. When we all came together after a day of fun, it felt like home!

                                                            We especially loved the back porch.

                                                            The location is perfect, took the shuttle into town to the beach, and a short drive to neighboring towns.

                                                            The owners are very personable and accommodating. And a big thank you to Bob- he was there, a quick phone call away, with continued check ins to be sure everything was great!

                                                            We would definitely recommend this vacation home.
