Overview

Delaware Townhome Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bath, 1 half bath, 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.

Check in is 3pm. Check out is 10am.

Suitability:
  • children welcome

Guestbook comments from the owner

We booked Mom's Place for a long weekend getaway and were thrilled to find such a relaxing place. We really enjoyed it and rested well! Thank you.

Great beach place!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Wonderfully comfortable, great location & well-stocked!

  • 4 of 5

Arrived with little difficulty at Mom's place with husband and 20 year old child in tow. Was very pleased with the beachy feel of the house, the well stocked kitchen, living room and entertainment area (games galore, movies, books, etc.) and enclosed patio that was a little off limits due to the number of geese that hang out in the back. However, at night with the fan on, it was rather pleasant. Upstairs the bedrooms are spacious and comfy. There is an owner's manual which is a pretty thorough accounting of what's around, what to do, restaurants to visit (go to Luna's Cactus Café) and the best places to find a beach parking spot (did exactly as told and scored a free space!). Mom's outside closet of toys, fishing gear, beach equipment, etc. was very handy as were the grown up bikes (2 of them, 1 child's bike). We never got to use the pool or tennis court, but hopefully another trip is in store. You're very close to the Fenwick Island/Ocean City, MD line and about 40 minutes to the Rehoboth Outlets. It's a great location and easy to navigate! I hope we will come back. Thank you!

Great place !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and relaxing time during our stay at Mom's Place. Everything was perfect!!! Although it was a vacation home, it also felt like home. The home was clean, well appointed and inviting. The owners have done a great job of maintaining this beautiful home with many wonderful amenities. The lake, the conveniences in and around the house were also appreciated.

Thank you again for a wonderful week!!! We look forward to our return!

A great kickoff to the summer of 2016

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, comfortable, and well maintained with a nice 'beachy' feel and plenty of room for 3 adults and three kids. Everything was as or better than expected. We really enjoyed the sun room and open space to the lake. We all had a chance to ride the bikes through the complex, a nice touch. I would recommend Moms Place to beach vacationers who want both the relaxing peaceful setting with lots to offer (pools, tennis, shuffleboard) and the close proximity to great Fenwick beach offerings.

Excellent Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The place was great. Couldn't beat the location. The surrounding neighborhood was quiet and beautiful. Very easy access to the beach and restaurants. It was very clean and the owner was incredibly helpful every step of the way. We would love to visit again next year!

Excellent vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week and cannot wait to come back. The location was perfect. We like to stay low key and be close to busier areas. This worked great. We recommend it and would come back in a heart beat.
