About the property

Bear Trap Golf Course and Water Views – Two Master Bedrooms – Sleeps up to 12

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. Upgrades in 2018: new carpet throughout, new sectionals in both family rooms and all single beds are new this season.

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. ***Linens and towels are NOT provided however***

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 10 to 17, 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 Ocean View

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 location, very basic amenities

  • 4 of 5

As advertised, everything worked and the owners were very attentive. House has a great open layout and backs to beautiful golf course and the back porch and grill were awesome. The pool and pavilion were worth the price, although the 15 min per hour adults only swim really made the kids mad, it made no sense whatsoever. The WiFi speed and a availability was extremely slow, couldn't stream any video and the cable was also basic which was frustrating. The couch was a throw back to something from a college dorm, if it was left out on the curb I'm sure no one would pick it up! Traffic and parking in Bethany Beach was stressful and the beach itself is almost entirely eroded. Folks are forced to leave the beach at high tide because there is literally little to no sand left. Absolutely no room for kids to play games on the beach so leave your wiffle ball bats at home. If your a golfer, the course and the facilities were amazing. Overall, a lot of driving required although there is a shuttle to the beach which we didn't try.

Very nice house and minutes to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our vacation. The house was great and plenty of space for everyone. It was nice and quiet. The screened in porch was awesome. We enjoyed it every morning for breakfast and watching the sun set at night. And Bear Trap Dunes was a very nice community as well. Very safe and quiet. Plus it is only minutes from Bethany Beach, which we LOVED. This was our first time at Bethany Beach and I'm sure it won't be our last. It was a very nice and relaxing vacation. This was our first time renting a house and the owners were fantastic. They made the whole process so easy.

A Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Rented this home for a long weekend with my family. We had 4 teenagers, myself and my wife, and my parents, and the home was more than spacious. The house offers a great view and the sunsets were incredible. The neighborhood facilities were also nice, although the $40 per person fee was a bit much in my opinion. Otherwise, everything was very nice and we will definitely look into returning again in the future.

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.
