I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. The owner was prompt in her responses and very helpful. The house is wonderful. It was clean and had a homey feel. The location was great as well; easy to get to and close to the beach. Highly recommend!!

Lovely property...

  • 5 of 5

Booked this place for a quiet birthday weekend with my BFF. We had the most relaxing quiet time. The location was just perfect!! We drove down to Fenwick & OCMD, both within such short distances. The house was perfect for just the two of us. Beautiful setting, comfortable beds, clean, quiet, & peaceful. Julia was great to work with. She provided all the information in great timely manner. In the house, there's a binder with useful information about the area, and the care of the house. We had a perfect weekend!! I would definitely rent again!

Very Happy! I would stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental was perfect! It was very clean when we arrived and nicely decorated. I particularly loved the sun room (which was also air conditioned). It had a nice dinette table and a futon. It was perfect for my 18 year old son to sleep there with more privacy. The large flat screen TV (with Netflix) was a plus!. Most rentals we stayed in have small TV's. We enjoyed watching movies at night. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything needed to cook a meal. The neighborhood is safe and quiet. I did not worry about my teenage daughter and her friend riding their bikes or walking to the pool. I am very satisfied with this rental and would stay here again.

Clean house with all the comforts of home. Plenty of sleeping room and room to spread out and relax.

Wonderful community to stay in! The pools and playgrounds kept the kids busy and provide family fun. Friendly people all around, from the office staff to the pool side staff. The location is great too! Close to the beach, shopping, and all other attractions. The area is quite and relaxing, away from all the hustle and bustle of the busy highway and attractions down the road. The grocery store is close by, as well as several road side stands with fresh fruits and vegetables! I highly recommend Mallard Lakes and this property to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation. Booking through home away directly with the owner of the property was amazing! Cut out the middle man and deal directly with the owner. Julia was a pleasure to work with and responded to all messages promptly.

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!

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 Selbyville

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!
