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!

Living the grand life in Bethany Beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our tenth golf trip in the United States, in various cities and states. And this was by far the most pleasant stay that we had over all those trips! This house is impeccable and is situated in a very quiet and nice neighborhood, wich makes for a perfect sleep every night! We found everything we needed and more in the house. In fact, we enjoyed it so much that we prepared or had all our meals there every day. The WIFI worked very well and allowed us to book tee times easily. The owner was in contact with us often to make sure we were satisfied, and indeed we were. It was like a five stars hotel with much more space to enjoy it. So if you are looking for a great place to stay in in South Delaware, search no more and book this house. You will not be disappointed and for you golfers out there, we found many golf courses close by at really low prices. You must have realised by now that we highly recommend this house and we will surely rent it again in a near future without any hesitation! As we say in French: Merci et à bientôt!

168 Willow Oak, Ocean View, DE

  • 5 of 5

This is my 2nd year at 168 Willow Oak, and that should speak for itself. I absolutely fell in love with this beautiful property the minute I stepped in. The house and amenities were exactly what I was looking for. Immaculately kept and equipped with everything you need. A peaceful and relaxing setting, with close enough proximity to do whatever you may want to do. Carol is easy to work with and responds immediately to questions. This has become an annual vacation trip... looking forward to returning in 2017.

A wonderful week at a lovely home

  • 5 of 5

Three generations (9 people including two infants) shared this lovely appointed home. Equipped with everything we needed for an enjoyable week. Would recommend this home to others and hope to enjoy it again next year. A picturesque community that made us feel safe and welcomed.

The owner could not have been more pleasant and kind as well as responsive to our questions. It was everything as advertised and more.

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!
