Fenwick Island Townhome Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom, outside shower, sleeps 6

Updated, quiet lake front home in an amenity-filled community. Enjoy swimming, tennis, basketball, salt and freshwater fishing, beach volleyball, shuffleboard, playgrounds and biking without ever leaving Mallard Lakes. And you're only minutes from the allure of DE and MD beaches, boardwalk, shopping and restaurants. Relax on the sun porch with your morning coffee while enjoying the lake view, then head just 2.5 miles up the road to the beach. When you return home you can wash the sand away in the roomy outdoor shower, squeeze in a walk or game of tennis before dinner, and spend the evening watching movies with family on the HDTV. Mallard Lakes is a great place to relax at a quiet get-away spot, or if you wish, all of the activities of an ocean resort are there to enjoy, too!

Sorry, NO PETS and NO SMOKING.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for allowing us to rent Mom's Place! We enjoyed our stay very much--we love the location and the quiet surroundings and yet so convenient to the ocean. We used the sun porch a lot. I loved listening to the fountains and the breezy sounds in the trees. The boys used the bikes and played tennis and played games from your collection, so there really was something for everyone! We just may be back!

Great beach place!

My family stayed at this home in July 2007 and loved it! It was nicely decorated and situated in a great community. Unlike another reviewer we received all of our security deposit back, with no problems. We can't wait to return!

There was no "owners manual"or any information pertaining to any activities at Mallard Lakes or the surrounding area left for us.
As we found the TV not to be working, we scrambled to try to locate anyone to contact as there were no contact phone numbers in sight and no WiFi to even be able to use our iPad to find information! Really?
after going to the office to get info we were told the cost to swim there was$75 for the week. Really?
After finally getting in touch with"Global"and getting the run around for three days we just plain left totally dissatisfied by the customer service! we left four days early!What does that tell you?

Owner's Response: We were flabbergasted by this review! Prior to their vacation, the guests were sent a welcome package along with their keys. In it was a map, directions, departure instructions, and a letter full of information about the property - including contact numbers for all three owners and our housekeeper. So we had a hard time understanding how they were unable to contact us during their stay with their concerns.

Inside the home is a manual which resides on the breakfast bar, just a few feet from the front door. In it is a complete set of information about the unit and complex, an inventory of the property's contents, maps, and pages of restaurant menus and info on area attractions. It's a 3" thick binder full of pages. There are specific instructions about use of the facilities and it directs them to the owner's amenities pass that hangs from a key rack inside the front door. We leave it specifically so that our guests do not have to pay any additional fees. There is also a complete set of directions in a sheet protector with each of the three televisions including how to operate them and navigate the different remotes. So, we are at a loss as to how the guests were unaware of all of this information and indicated that the TV did not work.

Lastly, we were concerned with the information in the review and immediately checked with the guests occupying the unit following the reviewing party. They assured us that the manual had been most helpful and was indeed on the kitchen counter. The amenities pass was hanging from the key rack. And they had also had no problems using the television/dvr/dvd player and had done so throughout their stay.

Many of our guests comment on how well-stocked our home is and how much they appreciate the information we have organized and left for them. We are sorry that a group of our guests did not enjoy their stay at our property, but remain puzzled as to how they felt uninformed.

We had a great stay a Mom's place. The property is located in a quiet neighborhood and well maintained. The townhome was charmingly decorated and came with everything we needed.

Perfect vacation place!

  • 5 of 5
This place couldn't have been more attractive and comfortable. It allowed me and my 7-year-old son and my parents to enjoy an ideal vacation. Every detail for the renter is considered and provided. My son learned Monopoly Junior thanks to the kind owners! We loved the neighborhood and the pool. The proximity to the ocean was the icing on the cake. I highly recommend this place to anyone!

My family and I stayed here for a week in August and we had such a wonderful, restful time.

The area it's in is very quiet, which we loved, yet close enough to fun things to do, like visiting Ocean City boardwalk, the beach, and the pool. The pools are in walkable distance, which was great and the kids loved it.

This home is awesome--you know when you stay somewhere and it takes you a couple of days to get used to being there? I did not experience this here. I felt at home the day I arrived. It's very comfy, and the decor is outstanding (normally I don't care about that stuff, but it's all so adorable and warm). You can tell the owners put a LOT of thought and heart into it.

There is cable tv: The kids' room has a tv in it (which is the first thing my kids mention when asked their favorite part of their vacation!), as does the main bedroom, the kitchen is great as well.

There is a DVD library of great family movies if you're so inclined: we watched "A Night at the Museum" and "Roman Holiday" during our stay. Also, there are lots of great paperbacks in the living room if you're in the mood for a good read.

We visited an Italian restaurant and Dumster's while we were in the area. They were both great, though I wasn't bowled over by Dumster's. It's one of those 1950s-appeal kind of places, but it didn't do it for me. Whatever. The food was good.

There is also a fabulous local place we went to for breakfast with firefighter decor (I know I said that stuff doesn't matter to me, but it's hard to ignore it at this place!). EVERYTHING has a firefighter motif. It's wonderful and the people who run it were so inviting. We went there almost every morning!

All in all, Delaware is awesome--clean beaches, REALLY friendly people, cars that stop for pedestrians!

Mom's Place is so wonderful. We highly recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting Fenwick Island.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time. 3 Adults and a 4 year old. A well kept, well managed, and well equipped condo that is very nicely located. We enjoyed the condo's pool, tennis courts and shuffle board courts, as well as Ocean City and Fenwick beaches, boardwalk, and restaurants. The "Owners Manual" of information and tips about the condo and surrounding area that we found prepared for us at the condo was the best - most complete and most helpful - we've seen.
