NYE Family Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at SUNSCAPE was relaxing and a nice change of pace. Since it was cold out, we didn't really get to do much outdoors. We visited the beach a few times. DiscoverSea Museum was closed until March. There are definitely alot of different board games in the TV Stand. No need to bring your own. There was plenty of room for our party of 6. The bathroom is spacious and has a huge beautiful skylight. The decor was beachy and comfortable. My best friend and I enjoyed catching up in the sun room. We loved the windows. My children, 11 and 7, enjoyed the herons in the lake. They also liked the 2nd TV in the master. My son slept on the blue futon chair. Overall, our stay was awesome. My only feedback to the homeowners (only because we are foodies and cooked all of our meals at home and is nit picky just based on what we like) was the state of the pots and pans. They were Teflon and scratched. We generally use stainless steel. Oh, and maybe long tongs and 1 sharp knife. The kitchen was well appointed with everything that is needed. There are specific instructions and everything was labeled well. Plus, the home was very warm. We were surprised with how warm the house was even after turning down the heat. Pat was also lovely to deal with, responding to my emails quickly. Lastly, Pat also returned my deposit right away (same day actually.) Overall, our experience with Pat and SUNSCAPE was wonderful. Thank you for sharing your home with us. I hope that my children did not bother the neighbors too much. Happy New Year!

Owner's Response: Hi R, thank you for the lovely review! So happy you could spend New Years Eve at SUNSCAPE to begin your year. Thanks for the feedback about the pots and pans - I'll be checking out those after-holiday sales for a new set, as well as some tongs and a sharper knife. All will be in place for your return visit! Here's to a happy and healthy New Year to you all! Best, Pat

Everything we wanted and more

  • 5 of 5

A charming and comfortable place. Plenty of room to spread out and relax. We enjoyed the patio overlooking the lake every night. Located close to the many places to see and go. We enjoyed four of the local eateries in walking distance from the front door. Breakfast at the Countryside cafe, Lunch and late night snacks at Billy's Sub Shop, Happy Hour and Keno at Smitty McGee's, and Early Bird Dining at Mio Fratello. Pat and Henry couldn't have been more responsive and accommodating as we set up the booking. We will definitely be back for more....

My husband and spent a cozy weekend together in this townhome in Fenwick island. Although it rained all weekend the house was so comfy we were able to kick back and relax. Pat had supplied all the creature comforts of home. The beach was only a 5 minute drive away, grocery stores were close by as were many restaurants. Pat was always very quick to respond and even contacted us with ideas for a rainy weekend! I highly recommend this property

Love Fenwick Island

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Mallard Lakes several times and always enjoy the Fenwick Island area. You are far enough out to be away from all the hustle and bustle yet close enough to enjoy everything in the area - Ocean City, Bethany Beach and Rehoboth. We didn't go this year but Assateague Island is fun to visit, too. This townhouse was reasonably priced and decorated like a beach house should be. We were very comfortable during out stay and Pat contacted us by email to make sure everything was going well. The weather was HOT but we still kept ourselves entertained and had a good time. Lots of good restaurants around and we had ice cream at a different spot every night! Highly recommend!

Wonderful, relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

What can we say? This was our 2nd stay at Sunscape and it was absolutely fabulous. Pat is great in the booking department, checking in during our stay and giving recommendations on things to see and do. This townhouse is well kept and the beachy decor is perfect for the area. It is located in a quiet area, so you can relax in a peaceful setting, but can also be in the hustle on the boardwalk within minutes. During our stay we went and saw the wild ponies and did some hiking, spent time on the boardwalk, shopped at the outlets in Rehoboth, and jumped waves and shell searched at Fenwick Island State Park. The stay was great from start to finish, we hated to leave.

Great stay and all you need to enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was great to work with! The home was well prepared when we arrived. Everything that you would need was provided. The unit was well taken care of and thoughtfully decorated and furnished. Instructions were clearly labeled and easy to use. The back porch area was very relaxing as you looked out on the lake. Definitely a place to stay!
