Great Family Get-away

  • 4 of 5

We spent a relaxing week at this property and couldn't be happier. The location was perfect...not right on the main drag but very close to the beach as well as the Fenwick boardwalk, Ocean City park, groceries and ice cream! We had 2 children with us - ages 3 and 5 and the upstairs worked great for our sleeping arrangements. The upstairs bath is VERY spacious. The kitchen is well stocked for at home meals. Owner was very responsive to questions. We spent a lot of time at the Delaware SP beaches so did not pay the fee to use the pool in the neighborhood. Mallard Lakes is a great location and we would definately stay again.

My husband and I and our 3 boys ages 8, 5 & 5 just stayed here for 7 days on our vacation and it was wonderful! First the home was super clean, comfortable and very well taken care of. It had everything we needed to make our stay easy, relaxing and enjoyable. The location is excellent and there is so much to do from the pools, playground, shuffleboard, tennis and you are close to the beach! We would absolutely rent this home again!

Owner's Response: We are so grateful to have the opportunity to have you and your family stay at our home. You were a pleasure to speak and interact with and very glad your family had such a good time. My wife and I were thrilled with the photo of your three sons sitting on the dock and hope to frame the photo and display it in the future at our home if that is ok with you and your husband. Again - many thanks and hope to see you next year. Sincerely, Philip and Cara Staurowsky

Great home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 stayed here last week. It was our first vacation to the Delaware beaches and first time to Mallard Lakes. We could not have been happier. The townhouse was everything that we needed and more. It fit all of our needs and then some. The home was very clean and well supplied. This is actually the first vacation home we have ever rented that the "little things" (hand soap, dishwasher detergent, etc) were there for us. It was a very wonderful surprise. Also, everyone that we encountered that worked for the Mallard Lakes community was extremely welcoming and so nice. It was a wonderful vacation and we will be back for sure. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.

Awesome Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I stayed in this very comfortable and clean townhouse in July 2014. We loved the place and the entire Mallard Lakes community was great. This was our first stay in the Mallard Lakes community while visiting Fenwick Island for our summer vacation and we could not have been happier with the accommodations in the townhouse and will definitely rent the house again for future vacations.

Great beach cottage

Just wanted to let you know you have a very clean and comfortable rental property. The location is great- out of the hustle and bustle of Ocean City but close to everything! I will keep this property in mind for future travels and will recommend to others.

Thank you

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with the home itself. The only problem we occurred was the amenities pass. We did NOT receive the guidelines for Mallard Lakes with our rental agreement. We was very surprised when we arrived and my teenagers went to use the pool and were denied access without an amenities pass that you had to obtain from the front office. I was told by the office that I was required to pay parking for the unit we were renting and this was included in the amenities pass for a fee of $75. A little disappointed to say the least. I was told unless I was the owner then we needed a parking pass. I feel this should be listed for the future renters. Without an amenities pass you will be denied access to the pool & hot tub and need to bring your own basketball, volleyball and tennis racket. They (Mallard Lakes) however will supply you with these with the purchase of the pass. Other than this unexpected expense we had an enjoyable time. The skylight in the bathroom lights up most of the upstairs. The home is very bright. The photos do not do the home justice. Very well maintained. Not far from Ocean City. Thank you for the use of your home.

Owner's Response: HI Brooke, Thanks very much for your feedback and very sorry for the confusion about the amenities issue. I misspoke when I spoke with you. I said it was listed on the contract that we don't get involved with the amenities at Mallard lakes. I did list this on page 4 of your contract however it was item 14 of the rental rules I had sent along with the contract. I am very sorry for the confusion as I have never had this happen before with a renter. I will have to list this item on the contract itself to eliminate future confusion. I appreciate your comments very much and hope you will find your way back to our home next year as we pride ourselves in having repeat vacationers. Thanks also for the way you handled this situation. I appreciated your not being accusatory and at the same time very patient. Very glad you enjoyed our home. Sincerely, Philip S.
