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

" A perfect spot!"

" A perfect spot!"
  • Submitted: Aug 26, 2011

Your home is located in a perfect spot in the development – across from a farm field and right on the lake with a majestic “shade” pine! Sitting in the sunroom in the morning was so relaxing! My usual wake up time is 8 – 8:30am, so I caught multiple cardinals (and then starlings) eating birdseed. Interesting that the cardinal, at times, would be brave to come in for seed carefully when only one starling was there. I’ll have to wake up earlier next time - it sounded like the ducks passed through each day earlier.
Another “spa-spot” in your house is your upstairs bathroom. I felt like a pampered princess (ok, I’m only old enough to be the queen) in the tiled tub/shower. And the “picture window-sized” skylight is just amazing! Really amazing!
I find this journal interesting in that, through your rental, you are able to provide happiness and relaxation to multiple families & friends. I appreciated my weekend here with my husband and 2 (of my 3) sons.

Having stayed at Mallard Lakes years ago I started looking for a place to rent for a week this year and The Herons View was available so we gave it a try. The community was exactly as I remembered and the house was awesome. Very renter friendly neighborhood with lots to do, fishing, crabing, walking, bikeriding, tennis, shuffleboard and more. Neighbors 2 doors down offered us their crab and minnow traps for our boys to enjoy. Clean pools to swim in if you tire of the beach. Everything you need is close by. Short trip to the beach and quick return of your security deposit is always a plus. Only problem was having to leave! :-( Thanks Pat and Henry for sharing your home!

Another great stay at Herons View!

We enjoyed ourselves so much last summer at Heron's View that we decided to return for 2 weeks this year. What a great vacation we all had! The condo is centrally located so that we easily traveled to Bethany Beach, Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach and Ocean City, Maryland to take advantage of what those areas have to offer as well. We look forward to returning again next summer!

Fantastic Getaway

We were looking for a place to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We love the beach, but didn't want to stay in a crowded flashy resort setting. This place was the perfect oasis: calm, beautiful, comfortable, and only a quick bike ride to the ocean. We used it as a base for kayaking the bays, visiting the Ocean City boardwalk, and of course time at the beach. We DEFINITELY will be coming back.

By the way, we made our decision to vacation in the Fenwick Island area at the very last minute. Pat couldn't have been any more accomodating.

Heron's View offered my family a great place to relax while being close to the beach, boardwalk and shopping. Lakeside, it's a comfortable home away from home. We had 4 adults and it offered a spacious, get-away supplied with games and movies and a luxury master bath, that in itself is a vacation!

The photos do not do this place Justice (esp. the wonderful master bathtub)! Super location convenient to all the activities, but quiet and peaceful. Great view from the porch.

Owners were very prompt with correspondence, information, and returning the deposit.

Would certainly visit again and recommend to others!

We had a wonderful time at Herons View. The accommodations were clean and well cared for with a beautiful view of the lake. It was every thing we hoped for in our weekend get-away. This is a place we will definately re-visit.
