About Julia Turner

Laurie & Julia. Mother & Daughter. Purchased this home after visiting a friends in the neighborhood. We fell in love with the lake views and easy access to everything the beach has to offer.

Julia Turner purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Julia Turner chose Delaware

Growing up spending time in O.C. MD, we wanted to purchase a home that would give us the beach access and a quiet escape. This community really has is all. Very family friendly, everyone you meet is kind and inviting.

What makes this townhome unique

The sunroom, located off the family room, is a great place to enjoy the lake view while have a cup of coffee. This place screams relaxation!

Clean and comfortable.

We come to this area at least once a year. This was a convenient, safe location. I like the community atmosphere. The owner was great to deal with. She answered our questions, was very informative and accommodating. I would stay here again!

Excellent Time!!! Truly Home Away From Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Truly a wonderful time we had here at Mallard Lakes. The listing on HomeAway does not accurately describe how great this property is in regards to convenience!!! You can not beat the proximity to Fenwick Island Beach as well as Ocean City! Feels great to be close to the noise and bustle of the beaches but not directly in it so you get peace and quiet. All the food goodies are a stones throw away as well. Plenty of room to accommodate and not feel cramped like if we stayed in a hotel. 7 of us ( My Children Ages 11, 3, 1, my Niece & Nephew ages 9, 12, along with my Wife & I) made the trip to enjoy the beaches. The community has amenities like pool, playground, and other outdoor activities if that interest you. Assigned parking right out front. Julia outlines everything for you in a binder of all things in the area to check out and reference. She also leaves a guestbook where residents leave their thoughts and experience while vacationing there. I thought that was cool of her to put that there. Allows for you to read how others have spent their time there.Private shower outside is great to limit the sand in the house. I would not hesitate to stay here again. In fact, I would love to do a week next time! Definitely a gem!

My son loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Very cute little condo to stay close to the beach. Although not right on the beach (and a bit far to walk) it was nice to have the pool and tennis courts available. We didnt take advantage of that because it was off season and was also raining most of our stay but could see it being a huge benefit for families. My 2 year old son loved the place which was great because we were stuck inside a good portion of the time. We cooked and chilled out which was the plan. Easy access to restaurants, liqueur stores and groceries. Owner was quick to respond to questions about the place via text. My only suggestion to the owner is to be sure to remind people in the welcome book to turn on the hot water circuit. Apparently they ask guests to turn off the water, hot water circuit etc before you leave, but it is not mentioned to new guests upon arrival. We took a couple of cold showers before we realized. Still, I liked how they keep costs down by asking people to clean up before they go and skip the cleaning fee. A nice touch, especially when only staying a few days and/or off season. Thanks for the stay!

Exquisite Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Warm, cozy and comfortable. This was one of the nicest places I have stayed in. The owner couldn't be more lovely and has attended to every detail to make staying in this home away from home most enjoyable. I can't say enough about how lovely the decor is and the fully equipped kitchen was a dream to cook in. If you are looking for peace and quiet and only minutes away from the beach, this is the place to stay. I hope to return there.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect! Clean upon arrival and fully stocked with all our needs. Apple tv was a big hit for my kids. They were able to watch netflix. There are plenty of dvds that the tv upstairs in master bedroom accomodated. The pool was still open too so we were able to enjoy that too. We ate lunch on the porch that has sliders to inside of unit and slider to outside back. All windows and enjoyed the sound of the fountain off the back patio with the windows open. Was perfect for reading and with the inside door closed I didn't have to listen to the tv while the kids watched it. Perfect relaxing getaway and so close to walk to either of the 2 pools. Very reasonable price and very accomodating. We kept wanting to extend our vacation and we did! 3 extra nights. Julia was great with any question or concerns and we had none besides can we stay another night. Free wifi too was a bonus for all of us!
