Near the Bayside community, enjoy wildlife refuges, hiking trails and bird watching. A public golf course, grocery and other shops are within walking distance. The Rehoboth outlets are a short drive to the north, offering more than 150 shops. Ocean City is less than 30 minutes to the south.

A Great Week!

  • 5 of 5

It is our fourth year staying at Bayside at Bethany Lakes and we will keep coming back. The townhouse was spacious for the 5 of us and had a great layout. It was very neat and clean and comfortable. Everything was there that we needed and it was a very short walk to the clubhouse and outdoor pool. We had a great time!

And for those of you that have read some of the earlier reviews of this place, there was a starter packs of items so we did not have to unexpectedly run to the store (which is a short walk away from the place) and we didn't see an ant the entire time we were there.

Comfortable but bare

  • 3 of 5

The unit was comfortable and nice. However, it was disappointingly (and mystifyingly) bare of some necessary items. When I arranged the rental I chose not to purchase the $148.00 "linen" package, and knew that meant I would have to bring all of my own sheets and towels. However, I did not know that I would need to supply some other very basic items. The unit did not have any soap for washing dishes, nor did it have any dishwasher detergent. There was no sponge for use in the kitchen and only two garbage bags were provided for the kitchen trash can. I stay quite often in vacation rentals throughout the U.S. and abroad and these common items have always been supplied. Not having these available meant making an extra trip to the store and was an unexpected, although fairly minor, expense.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the review. I'm very sorry we weren't clear about what was and was not included. We've found that, as our unit is rented all summer, and we, as owners are not at the unit at all during this time, any supplies we leave at the beginning of the season are gone very early. We will talk with our rental agent, ResortQuest, about the possibility of leaving soap and other supplies in the unit. I don't know if that will be possible, but I'd at least like to be more clear about what is available. For the record, we stay in rental units regularly as well. Sometimes the items you mentioned are available, sometimes we need to purchase everything. I do agree that it's lovely when it is available.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a good time, but l am terribly sorry about the ants! I wish we'd known while you were there so we could correct it for you. We have spent control service, and we'll get them right out. Martha

Wonderful place for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautiful - just like the pictures showed - and was the perfect place for our family of 6. It was clean and well maintained, with everything we needed. It is a short drive to Bethany beach. Grocery store close by was very convenient. Lots of space for the family to just relax, as well. The owners were very amenable and accommodated a special scheduling need. We would definitely go there again!

Review for Bayside Bethany Lakes Town House

  • 4 of 5

This was our first trip to the Bethany beach area, and we were surprised to find that this townhouse is actually not in Bethany Beach, but in Ocean View. Not a big deal, but I would have liked to know that ahead of time. The community and clubhouse are awesome, quiet, clean, perfect!

The townhouse is very nice but I got the impression that the cleaning service rushed through the cleaning before we got there. Also, we paid extra for linens and property mangers (Resort Quest) did not bring enough towels or the correct sized sheets for the master bed. At the end of the week it's requested that you strip the linens. Again, not a big deal but they never came and picked up the previous renters linens so we had dirty linens on the front porch all week, through the rain and all. Needless to say we didn't use the porch.

When we turned in the key other people were there arguing with Resort Quest about their issues in their rentals.

All in all, we had a great vacation and were pleasantly surprised by the community. The things we were unhappy with were related to Resort Quests management, rather than the house itself. We really liked the townhouse, location, and amenities but will probably avoid Resort Quest in the future if possible.
