Our family had the absolute best time for the week. The place was simply amazing. It was very well decorated and had the all the extras that any family could hope to have in a vacation home. There was plenty of room and all 8 of us slept comfortably, plus had plenty of space to separate for a little while. The photos did not do the place proper justice because we were amazed from the moment we arrived. We wanted to extend a very warm thanks to the owners. We completely enjoyed the home and plan to vacation there again and again.
Can't wait to get back there next summer.

We've been coming to Delaware for 8 years and have always gone through a realtor. This was our first time using VRBO, we found the experience terrific and would recommend to others. In the past we've stayed at Bear Trap or Bayside; however, we were not at all disappointed with Bayville Shores. Since we are not golfers and like to drive ourselves to the beach, we didn't miss those extras and loved not having to pay a recreation fee. The complex was lovely with a pool, tennis courts and fitness room which I took advantage of on those rainy mornings. The townhome had beautiful water views, we particularly enjoyed having breakfast each morning in the sunroom. This unit is exactly as described, beautifully decorated and clean. We vacationed with our son, daughter in law and 3 year granddaughter. The unit layout made it perfect for us with the two master suites and separate floors. The owners really have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. The home is equipped with everything you could possibly need, including beach chairs, boggie boards, beach toys, cooler and a beach umbrella. Not having to bring these items from home was appreciated. It would have been nice if linens were provided, but it really wasn't a big deal having to bring those items. Prior to arriving we had a few questions which were very quickly answered by Diane. I would not hesitate to stay here again and would recommend this unit.
The photos of this townhome do not do it justice. It is larger than it appears in the pictures, and while pretty in the pictures, it is absolutely beautiful in person. It has been professionally decorated, and it really shows. My family spent the Thanksgiving holiday there, and had a wonderful time. The kids enjoyed using the bikes, playing ping-pong, and watching the Macy's Day Parade with the fireplace lit beneath the television. The adults loved the views from every window! We hope to get the chance to return soon.
My husband, Bob, myself, our daughter, Sue, and her family spent a week in this absolutely beautiful townhouse. No words or photos could ever give you the true look and feeling of this home, it is breathtakingly beautiful! You can feel the warmth of the homeowners in every room. They have taken care of your every need while staying in their home by the bay. It was a very relaxing, enjoyable vacation for all of us. Our grandsons 15 & 13 totally enjoyed the great bikes, ping pong, basketball and tennis courts. Our every need was met by the owners, great area...great townhouse...great time with our family and great vacation. Thank you D and P for your graciousness and love that went into your beautiful home.
Our family love, love, loved this place. The house had everything we needed. We have young children so being able to walk to the pool and playground was a real plus. The adults loved the views, the kids loved the yard to play in and the driveway to ride scooters, play games and do sidewalk chalk. I highly recommend this home to anyone looking to relax yet have easy access to all Fenwick and OC have to offer. How could I forget...this house is amazingly decorated!
We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay in your beautiful home. Our family was pleasantly surprised by how well-equiped the house was, the bikes and the kayak were put to good use, the pool and work-out facility, the tennis courts, we enjoyed the use of them all. We had ping-pong tournaments every day. The house proved to be a perfect location to Ocean City, Rehoboth and the ferry into Cape May, NJ. Our favorite beaches were Fenwick Island State Park and Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes. We did so much, we had to come home to rest...we should've made our stay longer. Next time?
