About Bill & Lynne Yates

With over 40 years of friendship, the Yates & O'Brien family's have created a partnership, a stimulating, fulfilling activity to compliment our friendship. Janine, Lynne & I have always enjoyed the sun, surf & sand. Phil, formerly an avid boater, recently discovered that he & direct sunlight were no longer compatable. He does however enjoy adventure, as long as it involves good friends and fine dining.

Bill & Lynne Yates purchased this house in 2005

Why Bill & Lynne Yates chose Selbyville

I began visiting the Eastern Shore beach resorts as a teenager. When my brother, purchased a beach home in Delaware over 40 years ago, I knew that Fenwick Island was where I wanted to be. Years of 'window shopping' & imagining 'where I would like to be, if only...' led us to the Resort Community

of Bayville Shores. Our home, 'Paradise Found' was the perfect choice, meeting our personal vacation & family desires. It is conveniently located directly across from the

pool, fitness center, & offers gorgeous water views from every window throughout. The family resort community offers an array of family activities. Walking/jogging trails, tennis, volleyball, basketball, shuffleboard, horseshoes, and children's playground make this home a fully self-contained vacation resort .

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

I, along with my sister and brother-in-law spent 3 days at Paradise Found. My sister and her husband were looking forward to a couple of days away after their daughter's wedding on September 1. I was just along for the "ride". I am so glad they invited me. We felt totally at home at Paradise Found. The kitchen was well-appointed and the furnishings lovely, but still cozy (and immaculately clean which is very important to me and my sister!). We especially enjoyed the few steps we had to take to get to the pool. My brother-in-law enjoyed having the bikes and used one every day. The view from the sunroom was spectacular and we even saw a deer! We truly enjoyed our time away, even though it was too short! Thanks for sharing your beach home with us.

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a wonderful vacation at Paradise Found. The owner (Bill) was easily accessible, the place was super clean and comfortable, and the views from the balcony were superb! There were bikes and beach iteme available for use. The home is only a 10 minute drive from quaint Bethany Beach, and only 20 minutes from Ocean City. The neighborhood is great with a nice pool. We would definitely recommend Paradise Found!

Amazing beach house

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing experience renting out Bill’s beach house for the Labor Day weekend. Bill had been a very helpful and wonderful host right from when we tried to book the property. He is prompt and courteous in his responses and very understanding of your needs.

We were overwhelmed by the spectacular views. The kitchen was extremely well stocked. They were lots of books, board games and a very thoughtful ‘ everything you need to know to enjoy your vacation folder’ full of information about the house, neighborhood, restaurants, malls and beaches. We enjoyed taking advantage of the pool and proximity to all the beaches. We were running late during checkout and Bill was kind enough to accommodate us. We had a fun and restful vacation and will surely be back soon.

Truly 'Paradise Found' on Fenwick Island

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing stay my family had at Paradise Found. The home was immaculate and well appointed from the ground floor all the way up. The layout was perfect for our group, allowing privacy for one family on the ground floor and the other family to occupy the two rooms on the third level. The sun porch and deck on the 3rd floor were such peaceful retreats looking out to the bay. The kitchen, dining and family room was perfect for our group, making the second floor open concept layout exactly what we needed to keep an eye on our children. The vast array of beach equipment saved plenty of space for us in the car. Proximity to the complex pool and playground was spectacular for our family, with young children. Overall, we would stay again in a heartbeat. It would be great if the complex offered a beach shuttle, as parking was scarce and the line to get in the state park was long a few days, but other than that, it was absolute perfection. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

Wonderful vacation at paradise found

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this comfortable, well furnished home very much. My son, his wife, and their two year old daughter enjoyed the privacy of the ground level bedroom, which included a comfortable queen bed, sofa, patio and bathroom. The upstairs bedrooms were spacious and the beds comfortable. We also enjoyed the sunroom to have our morning coffee. We used the pool and fitness center. Loved riding bikes that were included in rental. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home!
