About the property

Bear Trap Dunes Golf Course and Water Views – Two Master Bedrooms – Sleeps 8-10

Our end unit townhome is located on the second fairway of the Black Bear Course at Bear Trap Dunes. Enjoy spectacular sunsets over the golf course and pond from the screened back porch, sun deck, wrap-around front porch or from any seat in the family room, kitchen and master bedroom.

Whether you are looking for family time at the beach or a fun golf getaway, Bear Trap Dunes is a great place for your vacation. The Community is located just two and half miles from Bethany Beach with convenient bus shuttles (in season) that take the hassle out of parking. Or you can enjoy the 27-hole championship golf course with practice facility, pro shop and clubhouse. There are also two outdoor pools, one indoor pool (for those rainy days), state of the art fitness center and 5 tennis courts available to our guests. The clubhouse features a bar/grill area for golfers and the Bistro restaurant which is great for families. All are within walking distance of our home. Guests must pay a weekly access fee to use the community amenities. This fee is paid at the Pavilion and does not go to property owner.

Our home has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths and is great for two families, or a foursome of golfers. There are 2 master bedrooms with full baths - one on the first floor with a King bed, the other upstairs with a Queen bed. The other two bedrooms are upstairs. Each has a pair of twin beds, one also has a twin over full bunk bed and they share a “Jack and Jill” style bathroom. The first floor has a queen sleep sofa to allow for up to 12 people. Our home is smoke-free (but cigars are welcome on the porch).

The kitchen is fully equipped, has an island with seating for four and opens to the dining area and the large family room. While enjoying this family space, you may also watch TV, treat yourself to the warmth of the gas fireplace, read a book, put together a jigsaw puzzle or play one of the assortments of games provided. There is a den off the kitchen with a smart TV, and DVD player for a separate kid-friendly area. Kids (and adults) will enjoy playing foosball in the garage. There are also 4 bicycles available for use by our renters.

The house is uniquely situated on a quiet, dead-end street with a single car garage and convenient parking in front.

The convenience to the beach, golf course and world-class amenities are all you need for a great vacation. Weekly rentals are generally Saturday to Saturday. Monthly and weekend/nightly rentals are also available. We look forward to having you as a guest.

About Chris and Barbara DiCostanzo, David Lilleywhite

We live in central New Jersey. Our kids range in age from 9 to 16, and we have enjoyed many good times together enjoying our mutual interests, particularly golf, good food, and (of course) the beach!

Chris and Barbara DiCostanzo, David Lilleywhite purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Chris and Barbara DiCostanzo, David Lilleywhite chose Delaware

We have spent many summers renting various Bear Trap Dunes properties, and rented this property for 2 years when we learned it was on the market. It was the perfect size, set up, and location for our families and we decided to make it our own.

What makes this townhome unique

Our townhome is unique in Bear Trap, set up with 2 master suites, 3 1/2 baths. An end unit at the end of a street. It is in a quiet location, with great views of the golf course from both the front and back decks, and the fabulous sunsets we have experienced helped us make the decision to buy this property and make it our home away from home.

Great outdoor space and two master bedroom suites

  • 4 of 5

Having already rented several times in Bear Trap we knew exactly what the layout of the home would be, and we chose this rental for that reason. One feature that we liked a lot and which suited our family was that there were two master bedroom suites and so there were three full baths- features which we didn't have before in any other rental. Balancing that out was the fact that the cost of this rental was higher. Also, the cleaning service could have been more attentive to details like burnt out light bulbs, cleaning the stove top, etc.

The owners were quick to answer any questions and seemed anxious that we be pleased. Basically, we were pleased with the rental.

Nice property and helpful owners

  • 4 of 5

My group of 12 people stayed here for a weekend. The house met our needs perfectly. It was spacious, very clean and well-appointed. The kitchen had just about every appliance and utensil we needed. Even though we had a pretty large group, the house didn't fell crowded at all. The screened in porch was a nice touch too. It was convenient to Bethany Beach and other DE shore resorts. About the only drawback was that the internet was very slow.

The owners kept up good communication and answered our questions immediately. Nice people.

Owner's Response: Rick, thanks for staying with us and for your review. We are glad that your group had a good time. Turns out that the internet issue was a modem issue that needed to be resolved with Mediacom . Sorry you were affected by that. We have since resolved the problem. Hope to have you back with us again.

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Bethany Beach and we could not have picked a more perfect home to stay in! I love the beach theme decor and the house was very clean. It's at the end of the street and back porch faces the golf course so not much traffic and makes for a very peaceful environment. This is the perfect vacation rental for a couple or a family with young kids. I will definitely be coming back!

Relaxing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a return visit for us, as we had such a good time on our first visit. This house is perfect for a family vacation, there are indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts, a gym, and of course golf! We visited Bethany Beach a few times, and did some sightseeing in the area. We had great food and service at the restaurant on site, but really our absolute favorite part of this trip was spending afternoons by the lovely pools and followed by evenings enjoyed in the screened porch. We loved this house, it had everything we needed, and we plan to return again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for returning with us and for posting a review of your stays Denise. We are so glad you all enjoyed your visit and spent lots of evenings on that back porch. That is our favorite place to be when we are there as well. Hope to see you back next year.

2 families with small kids

  • 5 of 5

We visited for a weekend with friends. 4 adults and 5 kids aged 5 and under. We had a fantastic time and this house was perfect for such a trip. All the bedrooms are spacious, so even though some of the kids were in travel cribs there was still room for everyone. We spent our mornings on lovely Bethany Beach, and our afternoons at the pools at the resort. The pools are gorgeous. The little ones adored the smaller pool that they could wade around it, which had a gated area so we could set ourselves up for the afternoon and not worry about anyone wandering off. Lots of shade by the kids pool too. The big outdoor pool is lovely, with lots of sun loungers around. We visited the on site restaurant at the club one evening and they were very welcoming, and food was very good. We are already planning a return visit - this house is fantastic.

Weekend stay with small kids

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in a number of self catering houses in both Europe and the US, and this is by far the nicest house we've stayed in. The house is spotlessly clean, everything you could possibly need, the bedrooms are spacious, and the beds comfortable. The open kitchen to family area meant the kids could play on the floor while we prepped dinner, or relaxed afterwards. We at the the clubhouse one evening, food was great and service good too. We also enjoyed our time at the indoor pool and the children loved the playground. Highly recommend!
