Why Liz and Kurt Mark chose Delaware

Our Bear Trap Home is truly a 'Home Away From Home' with all the amenities you would expect to find in a premier resort. There is so much to do and see that you can either fill your days with activities or just relax, kick back and enjoy the peace and tranquility our townhouse offers.

What makes this townhome unique

Relax in the central air conditioning while watching a game on our 60' HDTV with soundbar in the living room or 46' HDTV in the Master bedroom. Sit back in our screened porch and enjoy the serenity of the pond located behind our home.

Bear Trap Dunes offers amenities for everyone: Play Golf, Tennis, Basketball, Swimming, or enjoy our Ping Pong table. Get an early morning workout in our very clean and well equipped private gym at the pavillion, then maybe take a sauna, or a relaxing soak in the hot tub. They even offer classes for water aerobics as well as yoga.

Feel free to ride our bikes safely within the Bear Trap Dunes community. There are no helmets, so please bring yours.

High Speed 802.11AC Internet is also available to use throughout the home.

Perfectly appointed with impecable taste

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family of 5 with room for more. The little surprises we found like baseball gloves, tennis rackets/balls as well as the ping-pong table and bikes made our stay extra enjoyable. The house has everything you could possibly need. The beds are comfortable and have high quality linens. The rental process was easy and the owners replied promptly.

The community is lovely, with plenty of amenities. The drive to the beach is short and the community offers a shuttle to the beach if you don't want to drive (we drove and found parking every time). We will definitely keep the property on our list to come back to.

Another great stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you again for another wonderful beach vacation! Clean, cozy, and completely equipped with everything we needed. And once again the owners were so accommodating. When wifi was out, the owner stayed in contact with me and did everything he could to help us resolve the issue. In addition, we (once again) accidentally broke an item in the home. The owner was very understanding and did not even take it out of our deposit. We are so sad we will not be returning to this home again this summer. Our vacation dates have changed and, no surprise, this wonderful home was already booked. We'll try again next year!

Great Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Best place to stay, we have now made this our vacationing house for the beach. It is beautiful, spacious and just very comfortable, like you are at home. It has pretty much everything you need. Take sheets and towels. There are bikes in the garage and a ping pong table. It's a nice, quiet neighborhood, to walk or ride bikes. There are 2 pools in the community, and a golf course. There is a shuttle to take you to Bethany Beach. Grocery stores and other stores are close by. It you want to check out Ocean City, Rehoboth Beach or any of the other beaches, the drive is easy and not long at all. Would highly recommend this place for a wonderful vacation.

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

This was our first Bethany Beach stay that was not ocean front at Sea Colony. This property was lovely & had all of the space our family of 5 could want. All of the beds were comfortable. Having a gas grill on the deck was a wonderful convenience. The kitchen is fully stocked. My husband & 2 of my daughters used the bicycles in the garage. The BB boardwalk is 3.8 miles from the property. The Bear Trap shuttle stop is less than a block from the front door. And we only had a >15 minute wait once when leaving the beach. The complex swimming pool facility is really nice & we would recommend spending time there if you want a break from the beach. Kurt was very responsive to a question I had we first arrived. The only issue that we had was the lack of functioning WiFi but this was actually a positive in helping my 9 & 10 year olds to unplug for the week! We would definitely recommend this property to others.

Great Place, Wonderful Stay, Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the same place for 7 years and it was no longer available. So we started a new search and found this place. It had everything we were looking for. Upon arrival, we knew we picked the right place. Very well maintained, nicely decorated, good furnishings and well stocked kitchen. It is a large town home. The rooms were much bigger than expected and the pictures don't do it justice. More importantly, it is VERY CLEAN!! We felt right at home, very comfortable and safe. Enjoyed spending time in the screened in patio. We used the bikes nightly. I liked that we were able to program our own code for the door to lock and unlock. No need to worry about keys.

Bear Traps Dunes, itself is a great resort/development with all the amenities you would want. We have three daughters ages 2, 11 and 16 and it had something for all three. The indoor pool was a big plus for us in case our little one had too much sun. It was very easy commute to all our favorite places and just minutes to the beach.

We had 4 adults, 3 kids and we very comfortable. Highly recommend for any family!

The property was very nice and homey. Well stocked and very nicely decorated. Floor plan is great, especially with kids, and we all enjoyed our stay. Would rent the property again.
