|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Bring the family, flip flops, and the clubs and enjoy the best of coastal Delaware at Bear Trap Dunes, a 27-hole championship golf course resort just 3 miles west of Bethany Beach. Vacationers of all ages are welcome -- from families with children to golfers wanting to get away for a long weekend. Our recently renovated and freshly decorated upper end-unit golf villa has a gorgeous view of Black Bear's 3rd green and a nearby pond. The villa is only a short distance from Bear Trap's main pavilion with its indoor and outdoor pools, fitness center, sauna, tennis courts, playground, and the Club House, Pro Shop, and full-service restaurant. A second outdoor pool complex also is nearby. A seasonal beach shuttle is steps away from the front door to take the family to Bethany Beach. There is plenty of free off-street parking next to the unit.
With all that Bear Trap has to offer, you may never want to leave, but there is plenty to do in the 'Quiet Resorts' if you do. Shoppers will love the boutiques in Bethany Beach, Fenwick Island and the outlet malls in Rehoboth Beach. Take the family for a walk on the boardwalk in Bethany Beach, complete with surf shops, frozen custard, Fisher's popcorn and bandstand entertainment. Ride the waves at Fenwick Island State Park, only a short drive down Coastal Highway. Need more to do? Have fun playing mini-golf, splash at water parks or amusement parks in O.C., sample great food at local restaurants, spend the day fishing, go kayaking or biking! In case you need more golf, there are plenty of other highly rated golf courses in the Delmarva area. You can also enjoy seasonal live entertainment on the Green at Bear Trap and at the Freeman Stage at Bayside in Fenwick Island (a short 15-minute drive). There is something for everyone!
After a long day soaking up the sun, hitting the links and having fun, you can relax and reconnect in this beautifully decorated vacation villa. Recently renovated, the villa features a new master spa shower, new carpeting, granite countertops in the kitchen and updated lighting and fixtures. The villa has an open-concept kitchen, a full laundry area, dining room, an open, light-filled living room with vaulted ceilings perfect for gathering, a private desk area, three full baths and three bedrooms that sleep a total of six people on two queen beds and two twin beds. An additional queen-sized Aerobed is available upon request to accommodate two additional guests. All bedrooms have ceiling fans. A screened porch and deck provide additional space to take in the sun or relax at the end of the day and watch the sunset. New for 2016: Updated sunshades on the screened porch!
The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed with a pillow-top mattress, rich mink-brown, contemporary furniture and gorgeous designer linens. An HDTV and DVD player allow for late-night viewing, and a huge walk-in closet, where pint-sized linens are available for little sleepers, provides plenty of space for golf gear. The master bath has a double sink vanity with new fixtures, a newly-installed spa shower and tile floor.
The 'Marlin' bedroom, located across from the master, is perfect for guests of all ages and includes two comfortable twin beds with hand-crafted, 'River Wash' headboards, bright linens, fun 'fish' art, a large storage unit, and is steps to the nearby full bath and shower. New for 2016: Plantation Shutters for enhanced privacy.
The 'Seashell' bedroom in the loft overlooking the great room features a vintage-style queen-sized wrought iron bed with a pillow-top mattress, beautiful linens and full bath and shower. It's the perfect spot for a teen or t'ween in need of some space!
The villa has a full kitchen with breakfast bar and is equipped to delight any chef. No one wants to pack their kitchens to go on vacation or use dull knives while away. So, we have provided kitchen essentials to make food preparation easy -- quality knives and pots, utensils and kitchen tools, a griddle, waffle iron, serving pieces, and pint-sized dishes for little ones, and a booster seat. The dining room seats six, with room for two more at the breakfast bar. By using the screened porch, our villa can seat 14 for meals.
The great room has an HDTV and DVD player and comfortable sofa for relaxing after a day on the course, three club chairs make viewing easy; a large chair and ottoman is the perfect place to curl up with a good book. A gas fireplace takes the chill off cool evenings.
Adjacent to the great room, an alcove with a desk, gives you plenty of space to charge devices and catch up on email. A table and two ottomans provide additional space for play or work. The villa has free wireless internet service so that everyone can stay connected. An iHome sound system also is available so you can listen to your favorite music.
A screened porch, complete with a tropical ceiling fan for those warm summer nights, is the perfect place to wind-down the day, have a meal, or enjoys the views. Or, you can soak up the sun on the lounges on the deck.

Our family of five leads a very busy life. We love coastal Delaware; it's the place where we are able to reconnect, recharge, and relax. After vacationing as renters here for several years, we decided to become owners.
Christine Corrigan purchased this condo in 2012
We fell in love with the view from the villa's porch and the way the light just fills the villa. Southern Delaware's beaches are clean and beautiful. There is a lot to do in the area with the kids, plenty of great local restaurants, and, of course, Bear Trap's amenities are top-notch.
We want our guests to feel at home and to enjoy their time away. We have strived to set up our villa the way we would want to find it, if we were renting it.
My husband and I and our two school aged girls loved this place! Most important to us is a well maintained, clean rental and this condo did not fall short of that. We loved that it was an end unit - light and bright! And the way the owners have decorated the space is elegant, warm, and inviting. I told my husband I could move right in and not have to change a thing! And the loft with bathroom was a big bonus. The owners have really paid attention to the details.
My family of 4 stayed for 2 weeks in August, and loved this rental. Its better than the normal rental due to the fact that this owner has taken the time in all the details. Its very comfy, and feels like home. Everything you would need they have. They go above most other rentals we have stayed at. My wife and I said if "we had a place we would set it up the same way". Its very clean, and that's important to us. I don't like staying in a rental that's not as good or better than my own home. I will be planning my next trip for the summer of 2015, and think we will be staying for the month. That should say something about this place.
We really like this layout for our 5 person family. The condo is also nicely equipped with all you need to have a great stay.
We greatly enjoyed our stay at Bear Trap Dunes. Everything at the resort is impeccably maintained with wonderful amenities. The location is perfect as well - it is centrally located, with convenient access to everything. The condo itself was just as described and even exceeded our expectations! The owners were a pleasure to work with and we would definitely recommend this property.
This was our first time staying at Bear Trap Dunes and we loved it! The amenities are fantastic- we took advantage of everything except golf. This particular villa is gorgeous inside and so comfortable you may not want to leave! Lol We loved its location for several reasons: it overlooks the golf course, it's not too far from the pavilion (just far enough away where it gets even quieter), beach shuttle stop #10 is just across the street, the dumpsters for trash are right there (many people have to drive their trash to a dumpster!), and there is plenty of parking.
The owners have really done an outstanding job of supplying almost everything you could possibly need. We definitely overpacked! It's a very luxurious unit but also completely comfortable.
A few tips for future renters: The owners provide 3 very high quality beach chairs- the kind you can strap on your back, with a built in cooler, storage pockets, etc... so you could absolutely ride your bike to the beach! If not biking, they also provide a large cooler, umbrella and a few beach toys. The shuttle was quite easy to use. If you do bring bikes there are bike racks in the parking lots for storage although we kept ours on the front porch and locked them to a column.
If you are a tennis player, here is my warning. There is only 1 hard court, the rest are clay. Because only certain shoes are allowed on the clay courts (which most people didn't have) you have to reserve the hard court in advance! Do not make the mistake we did and just show up one morning intending to play...not gonna happen! Lol You can reserve 30 or 60 min time blocks at a time and up to 24 hrs in advance. The gym was never too crowded in the morning when we went and it had everything we needed.
The neighborhood was just so peaceful and relaxing. As large as it is we really enjoyed walking, running and biking all around. The owners are very attentive to emails and questions you may have and the entire rental process through them was a piece of cake. Overall a 100% positive experience and would definitely return :)
We enjoyed our stay very much. The location was perfect. We loved the community, enjoyed the golf and pools & the 10 min. drive to the beach. We didn't have a problem parking. The home was clean, spacious and comfortable ---nicely decorated, too. We had 3 kids and two sets of grown-ups in our group. We got concerned on first arrival because there were only 2 twin beds in the kids room & no pull-out sofas anywhere. We thought one of the kids would have to sleep on the floor. But...low and behold, we found an full-size inflatable mattress in the master bedroom closet. It was perfect! The owners were accurate when they said they had everything we would need for a great trip! Lots of extras that added to the comfort of being away from home. We were able to do everything we normally do at our home --cooking, laundry, etc.
