Our family 1st vacationed here at Mallard Lakes in 1996. We fell in love with the relaxing pace, the family friendly atmosphere and the safe surroundings. Our children learned to ride their bikes here and learned how to catch a crab right off the docks. We love being close to it all, yet apart in our own private oasis here in slower, lower Delaware. Come and experience Herons View at Mallard Lakes for yourself. Call now for immediate booking 610-966-0167

"HOMEY" LAKEFRONT BEACH TOWNHOUSE

"Homey" Lakefront Beach Townhouse
  • 5 of 5
Very cozy and welcoming budget town home in the cute Mallard Lakes development in Fenwick Island. Literally just a two-minute drive to the beach, the owner, Pat, was a pleasure to work with from the moment we expressed interest in the property. The place is very welcoming and Pat has obviously spent a lot of time and put a great deal of thought into providing a comforting accommodation for families. When I inquired about hiring an outside linen service, she happily offered clean towels and sheets for each bed and offered the best possible price. There is a Pac-n-play, high chair, tons of beach toys and buckets, and an adorable outside shower. The amenities are practically endless too... from the pools, shuffle board, tennis courts, kayak storage (for owners), playground, lakes, birdlife, neighboring cornfields, etc. your children will not be bored and will surely sleep well. Outside of the property you will find even more offerings such as miniature golf, an attached water park and go-kart track, numerous restaurants, produce stands, and a Food Lion & Harris Teeter (my favorite!) within two miles. Fenwick Island is a fantastic year-round beach vacation destination because it sits in between the lovely, but very crowded Rehoboth & Dewey Beaches to the North and Ocean City, MD to the South. We're so pleased to have taken a chance with Heron's View and Fenwick Island.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Paulette, for that lovely review! ( did you see the vineyard next to that cornfield? ) Yes, Fenwick Island State Park is less crowded and offers hot showers, restrooms and a great concession with the BEST beach fries ever! We usually see dolphins straight out from the beach there too. We're so happy you chose HERONS VIEW. Maybe next time, you'll visit SUNSCAPE, our other Mallard Lakes property. Safe trip home! Best, Pat

A FABULOUS HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
What a fabulous vacation home - exactly as described! A beautiful, relaxing, spacious place (the skylight in the bathroom was the icing on the top). With lake-views from the living room and sunroom, and a large swimming pool within walking distance and Fenwick State Park beaches less than 10 minutes drive away - it couldn't have been more perfect.
Our perfect family vacation started long before we got there - when our vacation dates had to change, after we had confirmed our reservation, Pat saved the day and was able to switch our reservation to accommodate our new dates. On arrival, a welcome binder explained all we needed to know about the facilities, including suggestions for restaurants, and places to visit - a fully equipped kitchen allowed us to prepare meals to suit our taste. Our days started with breakfast in the sunroom, watching the birds, ducks, geese (and sometimes, a heron!). Then, time at the beach (umbrellas and chairs to rent, discounted multi-day passes), kayaking (Coastal kayaks across from the entrance to the Fenwick State Park beach entrance was fantastic), swimming at the complex, etc. We loved exploring nearby Bethany Beach, Ocean City, and took a drive up to Lewes near Rehoboth Beach, enjoying the Hopkins Dairy creamery ice cream (what a bargain!) and the nearby vineyards.
I would highly recommend this vacation home and look forward to a future return!

GET READY TO RELAX!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 recently stayed at Heron's View. It was one of the best vacations our family has taken to date. We were happy to find only about a 5 min trip to our favorite beach at Fenwick state park beach without the need to travel through the heavy traffic areas we usually encounter when staying in OC Maryland. Many amenities provided by the owners. My 6 year old son was very exited that amongst the other board games provided he learned and we played several rounds of Battleship. Directly out the back door we spent our evenings relaxing while overlooking the lake complete with water fountain. We were even visited by a few Herons, Geese and ducks. Back to work this week, feeling revived and relaxed!!

Owner's Response: Yes, relaxing on the patio overlooking the lake is one of our favorite things to do at HERONS VIEW too.

( and in addition to less traffic, NO sales tax on anything in DE:)

We look forward to welcoming you & your family back to HERONS VIEW, Dominic!

HERON'S VIEW, A PERFECT NEST.

Heron's View, a perfect nest.
  • 5 of 5
"We had a good time here though", my mother says as we pack up our last few items. In retrospect, we really have had a great stay, with Heron's View being our little nest for the week. With a great location between most of the major Delmarva Beaches, Heron's really was probably the best place we've stayed at coming down to this area. We loved the quiet patio where we could drink coffee and bird watch in the morning or play board games and hear a bull frog or two at night. The pool area was within walking distance, and the owner was thoughtful enough to include her amenities pass, which allows for pool access and access to the various courts for outdoor sports. Pat, the owner, also was very sweet, leaving us a welcome gift, which really made the place feel like home for the week from the moment we walked in. The "guest" bedroom, which I would consider the kid room was very comfortable, and the master bedroom was even better (Totally jealous). The bathroom had a gorgeous shower/bath combo with a double vanity. This property is well maintained, and we would definitely recommend it to other families, just not for the weeks that we will want to be coming back.

A GREAT SPOT FOR A SEASIDE GET-AWAY

  • 5 of 5
Herons View is extremely guest friendly. The owners really anticipate your needs and have provided high quality surroundings. The living room is perfect for small groups to gather to play games, watch videos, and have adequate space for good times. The enclosed porch and outside patio were perfect for quiet morning coffee and views of nature.

The flexibility of twin beds, master suite and pull out couch options provide for privacy and comfort. Being a tall chap, I especially enjoyed the indoor shower. It was spacious, the adjustable showerhead was to die for.

The kitchen is well stocked for light home cooking.

The property provides for recreational activities- pool, playground, tennis,bar-b-que. The location off Lighthouse Road is convenient to grocery stores, specialty shops, and mini golf.

The rental price provides great value in quality and comfort. I will tell my friends about Herons View and encourage them to book early so they won't miss out!
