Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Carol,

We had a marvelous time at your home. We found everything we needed and more! We made use of the indoor pool and hot tub - very relaxing. We were very sorry to have to come home to reality.

I loved the layout of the house. My daughter and her children stayed upstairs and my husband and I were down. It was perfect. The loft area was great for the kids to watch their videos and play. I hope that we can rent again sometime.

Thank you!

Best way to end summer

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting different homes at Bear Trap for the past 8 years. We love the community and all its amenities. This is the first time our kids have asked to come back to the same house. They loved all the room and extra bikes which they enjoyed on a daily basis!! The house is well equipped and well cared for! The owner went out of her way for us and truly made our end of summer get-away relaxing and wonderful!

Absolutely wonderful stay and accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

This house and location were perfect for us. The house was impeccably clean and well-kept, and the owner was highly responsive to any requests or feedback. We loved the location- a 5 min drive to the beach but nestled within a community with many amenities (e.g., indoor and outdoor pool, tennis courts, playgrounds, clubhouse, golf). This house makes for a great vacation for visitors of all ages. Highly recommended! We hope to be back!

What a wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The owner is extremely attentive, and provides great customer service. She has accounted for everything: the house is well appointed, comfortable and clean. The mattresses are VERY comfortable! And the house is open, airy and bright! The back deck is AMAZING. It was so peaceful to sit out there and watch the golfers during the day, or enjoy a drink at night. The community of Bear Trap is great, especially for families. It's close to the beach and the shuttle seems very convenient. We didn't use the shuttle because we have too much stuff to take to the beach, but we'd drive 7 minutes to Fenwick, where there is plenty of parking, concessions and bathrooms. Bethany Beach is also great, and much closer. But there's more parking in Fenwick. The pools are awesome. We'd spend the mornings at the beach and the afternoons at the pool. The workout room is great too, and has everything one could want for a quick vacation workout. We will definitely rent this home again, and highly recommend it. I can't say enough great things about this place!

Summer relaxation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this great home in July. The accomodations were clean and well kept. We felt very at home and it was very well stocked. There were lots of nice touches and the owner responded whenever we had questions. The way the bedrooms were arranged afforded privacy for each person. My inlaws stayed on the lower level and my husband and son stayed on the upper level. We are looking forward to staying again!!!

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

This home was more than perfect for our girls weekend. Four large, gorgeous bedrooms and four private baths. The mattress was so comfortable I wanted to bring it home with me. Great kitchen and stylish, comfortable seating in the living room in front of a cozy gas fireplace. The owner, Carol was very accommodating and the property was clean and stocked with anything you would need to make your trip to the beach perfect. Can't wait to return in warmer weather and try out the large deck and master bedroom balcony. We will definitely stay here again and are already telling our friends about this gem.
