Bring the family, flip flops, and the clubs and enjoy the best of coastal Delaware at Bear Trap Dunes, a 27-hole championship golf course resort just 3 miles west of Bethany Beach. Vacationers of all ages are welcome -- from families with children to golfers wanting to get away for a long weekend. Our recently renovated and freshly decorated upper end-unit golf villa has a gorgeous view of Black Bear's 3rd green and a nearby pond. The villa is only a short distance from Bear Trap's main pavilion with its indoor and outdoor pools, fitness center, sauna, tennis courts, playground, and the Club House, Pro Shop, and full-service restaurant. A second outdoor pool complex also is nearby. A seasonal beach shuttle is steps away from the front door to take the family to Bethany Beach. There is plenty of free off-street parking next to the unit.
With all that Bear Trap has to offer, you may never want to leave, but there is plenty to do in the 'Quiet Resorts' if you do. Shoppers will love the boutiques in Bethany Beach, Fenwick Island and the outlet malls in Rehoboth Beach. Take the family for a walk on the boardwalk in Bethany Beach, complete with surf shops, frozen custard, Fisher's popcorn and bandstand entertainment. Ride the waves at Fenwick Island State Park, only a short drive down Coastal Highway. Need more to do? Have fun playing mini-golf, splash at water parks or amusement parks in O.C., sample great food at local restaurants, spend the day fishing, go kayaking or biking! In case you need more golf, there are plenty of other highly rated golf courses in the Delmarva area. You can also enjoy seasonal live entertainment on the Green at Bear Trap and at the Freeman Stage at Bayside in Fenwick Island (a short 15-minute drive). There is something for everyone!
After a long day soaking up the sun, hitting the links and having fun, you can relax and reconnect in this beautifully decorated vacation villa. Recently renovated, the villa features a master spa shower, carpeting, granite countertops in the kitchen and updated lighting and fixtures. The villa has an open-concept kitchen, a full laundry area, dining room, an open, light-filled living room with vaulted ceilings perfect for gathering, a private desk area, three full baths and three bedrooms that sleep a total of six people on two queen beds and two twin beds. An additional queen-sized Aerobed is available upon request to accommodate two additional guests. All bedrooms have ceiling fans. A screened porch and deck provide additional space to take in the sun or relax at the end of the day and watch the sunset.
The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed with a pillow-top mattress, rich mink-brown, contemporary furniture and gorgeous designer linens. An HDTV and DVD player allow for late-night viewing, and a huge walk-in closet, where pint-sized linens are available for little sleepers, provides plenty of space for golf gear. The master bath has a double sink vanity with new fixtures, a newly-installed spa shower and tile floor.
The 'Marlin' bedroom, located across from the master, is perfect for guests of all ages and includes two comfortable twin beds with hand-crafted, 'River Wash' headboards, bright linens, fun 'fish' art, a large storage unit, and is steps to the nearby full bath and shower.
The 'Seashell' bedroom in the loft overlooking the great room features a vintage-style queen-sized wrought iron bed with a pillow-top mattress, beautiful linens and full bath and shower. It's the perfect spot for a teen or t'ween in need of some space!
The villa has a full kitchen with breakfast bar and is equipped to delight any chef. No one wants to pack their kitchens to go on vacation or use dull knives while away. So, we have provided kitchen essentials to make food preparation easy -- quality knives and pots, utensils and kitchen tools, a griddle, waffle iron, serving pieces, and pint-sized dishes for little ones, and a booster seat. The dining room seats six, with room for two more at the breakfast bar. By using the screened porch, our villa can seat 14 for meals.
The great room has an HDTV and DVD player and comfortable sofa for relaxing after a day on the course, three club chairs make viewing easy; a large chair and ottoman is the perfect place to curl up with a good book. A gas fireplace takes the chill off cool evenings.
Adjacent to the great room, an alcove with a desk, gives you plenty of space to charge devices and catch up on email. A table and two ottomans provide additional space for play or work. The villa has free wireless internet service so that everyone can stay connected. An iHome sound system also is available so you can listen to your favorite music.
A screened porch, complete with a tropical ceiling fan for those warm summer nights, is the perfect place to wind-down the day, have a meal, or enjoys the views. Or, you can soak up the sun on the deck.
