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 Delaware

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 .

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.

Labor Day weekend

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely awesome! A home away from home. We have never felt more at home staying anywhere anywhere else. The Decor was extremely nice and welcoming. The house was spotless, modern and comfortable with great views. There was plenty of space for each of the couples to have privacy but a large living space for us to gather for evening dinners and playing cards. The pool is steps away from the front door making it convenient to say the least. We have even booked for a weekend in 2016! Loved those adorable giraffes...

Great Rental for mid May 2015 visit!

  • 5 of 5

Great home for rental!!! Very close to all the attractions such as beaches, mini-golf, shopping and yet far enough away from the crowds of the boardwalk to have some family quiet time and a good night's sleep. Excellent amenities directly across the street for family enjoyment--gym, shuffleboard, horeshoe pit and nearby basketball court. Very clean, well-kept home and owners very accommodating to schedule with and efficient with sending rental information. Our family will definitely be renting again in the future!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough positive things about this place. Close enough to the beach, but have to say having a swimming pool 20 yards from the house might be even better. Screened in porch off the living room was very popular - having bikes and beach chairs, sand toys, grill, etc. was also wonderful. Will definitely consider coming back!

You WILL be relaxed!

  • 5 of 5

There were 4 of us who stayed at Bill & Lynne's lovely home for four days. It was truly a relaxing experience. My family of 3 stayed upstairs and my brother was able to have his own floor of the house all to himself! The pictures on this profile are accurate and the home is situated in one of the best spots in the community. It's directly across from the pool & gym. The entire community is wonderful. Clean, easy to navigate and filled with amenities. You get all of this PLUS you're away from the noise of the main roads and crowded hotels. We happened to stay during a somewhat chilly period of time. We made great use of the gas fireplace and enjoyed the warmth of this 3 story townhome. Bill was wonderful to work with prior to and during our stay. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your little piece of paradise!
