About Kathleen Young

We loved vacationing at the shore so much that we bought our own place. We think you will agree that our home is set up to be the most renter-friendly home ever! Comfortable elegance is our goal.

Kathleen Young purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Kathleen Young chose Fenwick Island

We absolutely love Bayside! We have made wonderful family memories during our own 'beach week'. We never run out of things to do - from Grandpa taking the older boys golfing to the babies splashing in the pool and mom's connecting again.

What makes this townhome unique

What a wonderful place to vacation! Pools, water features, hot tub, tennis courts, kayaking, biking, walking and nature trails, sports courts, crabbing, performances, special activities, and golf. We absolutely love it here!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Theresa writes in our in home guest book... "What a magnificant vacation in a wonderful welcoming,truly beautiful home. Kathleen and Alan did not forget a thing..... they've made us feel right at home down to eveery minute, attentive detail. You've found your calling in life!! It's been GREAT!!

We've enjoyed the pool, splash zone, great meini golf centers (the kids had a ball!) and the ocean's rolling waves and crisp, refreshing air were all quite memorable.

The kids asked if we could stay 'at least one more week" and we who wouldn't?!! We hope to be "repeat visitors" at Duffer's Escape!! Thanks for adding to our fondest of family memories!

Kathleen & Allan

What a wonderful and memorable time we had at Duffers! Having previously stayed in your other rental home in Bear Trap Dunes, we were spoiled. But we were just as pleased with all of the special touches you added to Duffers as well. What a beautiful location! So close to all of the wonderful beaches in Delaware but also close enough to spend time in Ocean City, MD. We couldn't have wanted for more. The house had everything we needed and more. The gourmet kitchen was such a treat. The grill was just perfect and was so large that we had dinner done in no time. Providing the beach toys, beach chairs, linens and towels for us, made our trip so much more comfortable. Kathleen, you are always such a pleasure to work with. It was so nice having a reply to our e-mails almost instantly and you never made us feel that we were a bother. We would stay at your rentals anytime and certainly plan to do so again in the future. It is worth every penny knowing that everything is going to be neat, clean and beautiful. Thank you, once again, for a wonderful vacation. We look forward to returning real soon!

Great week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Duffers. The location could not have been better within the beautiful Bayside community. The Sunridge complex was a stones throw from the house. Pools, a gym, playground, soccer field, and a tiki bar were all used and enjoyed. The adults could sit on the porch at Duffers and watch the kids at the playground. The kitchen was spacious and provided room for all to eat together. We did not take advantage of the beach shuttle, but chose to drive to north Ocean City. A parking spot was always found mid-morning and the drive was less than 10 minutes.

Our fifth year at Duffers and always an awesome vacation! The amenities at the pool, waterpark and now brand new playground is great for kids and adults of all ages! We love the kayaking and golf and spend half our time at nearby Bethany Beach. The house is always very clean and updated. Would definitely highly recommend!

Fun for the Whole Family

  • 5 of 5

As we approached Fenwick Island we started seeing beautiful signs about "a beach resort community like no other". Little did we know they were talking about Bayside, home of the Duffers Escape. After having enjoyed the townhouse for a week, I'm pleased to share the tagline is accurate indeed! We settled in nicely thanks to the owner's informative FAQ and welcome booklet. We were pleased to find a playground, tennis courts, ping pong, basketball court and pools right across the street that came with our economical amenity package. We never had to wait in any sort of line to play any sports, so we really did have a ball:) The pool, patio lunch area and bar were also never busy and well managed by the friendly staff. Our trip had many highlights, but one was walking the first night to The Cove restaurant for dinner. We sat outside to enjoy the live music playing next door at the amphitheater and allow the kids to enjoy the lawn before dinner was served. The evening ended on a good sweet note by roasting smores under the stars at their fire pit surrounded by water. We enjoyed ourselves so much we did this our last night too! When we weren't enjoying the resort we drove to Fenwick island beach, Bethany and Rehobeth to spend a day or two each. Thanks to the house, we had all the sand chairs and umbrellas we could ever want. Everything was in good shape and quite handy. Nights were spent in the well stocked kitchen enjoying dinner followed by movies on the enormous TVs on every floor. We were two families with a total of four kids and I am confident that we would all return with pleasure to the Duffers Escape.

Our Family's Favorite Escape!

  • 5 of 5

This past summer was our 4th consecutive vacation to Duffer's Escape in the Bayside Resort. We vacationed there beginning in 2010 when my twin boys were 4 years old. We had such a wonderful experience that we returned the following year. We now look forward to returning every year to celebrate the end of the school year, my husband's birthday, Father's day, and my twin boy's birthday. This year, they turned 7 at Duffer's Escape and there is no place that they would rather be! The townhouse is directly across from the pool, tennis, volleyball and basketball courts. We spend the mornings rocking on the porch and watch in anticipation as they continue to add onto the amenities. The boys were so excited to see another pool being built and would often report that they were adding this or that. We watched them fill the pool up with water a few days before we left. I know the boys will want to return next year to get a chance to swim in the new pool. Duffer's Escape has become a home away from home to us. We are very comfortable there and everything is convenient and cozy. There is so much to do right in Bayside Resort, as well as easy access to the beach and shopping. We are big mini golfers and the boys get so excited when we pass Viking Golf on our turn towards Bayside Resort. The owner of Duffer's Escape is very friendly and personable. She is always willing to make our stay the best it can be and has not failed year after year! I'm certain we will be there the summer of 2014 with our smiles and our floaties on!
