Why Julie chose The Commons

Our family of 5 consists of 3 very busy little children. We have been coming to Bayside for the past 6 years and bought 'Summer Paradise' to enjoy all the beach and coastal living provides for a busy family to relax and make family summer memories. Our 3 little ones enjoy making sand castles, body boarding and running around on the beach a few miles away. Many afternoons are spent enjoying the communities amenities, including the 3 pools, splash pad, soccer, the playgrounds, crabbing at the point, kayaking along with all the other great activities the community has to offer. Days where the kids don't go to the beach, they enjoy kid shows at the Freeman stage and scheduled activities by the Commons pool area. Believe it or not, there are so many things for the family to do we never get bored. Given our busy summer schedules, we cannot be at the beach as much as we like and would like to share our home with you to see what we enjoy so much about our summers at the Eastern Shore of Maryland!

What makes this villa unique

We had been coming to Bayside for a number of years before taking the plunge for 'Summer Paradise'. While we had not been actively looking, when we walked up to the home we loved the dead end street for our kids to ride their bikes and play outside. The kids can be easily watched while cooking on the grill. When we walked around the back of the home and looked through the kitchen and the bedrooms, we could see the pond in the back and the water feature directly behind the house. Many a nights, we have opened the windows and can hear the fountain. It truly is nice to have the open area behind the Villa and not feel boxed in with a house directly in front or behind.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Julie,

I would like to thank you on behalf of my entire group for this wonderful weekend. We all are very impressed with the house and the level of cleanliness. It is one of the best houses that we have rented.

It is sad that its our last day here 😐... but it definitely wont be our last stay here. And we will surely recommend it to our friends & family.

I again thank you for your hospitality.

Perfect Family-Friendly Home in an Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

Spent Thanksgiving weekend at this home with 2 other families (total of 6 adults, 7 children). The house is newer construction, which is great because we had 3 bathrooms plus a half bath and very large bedrooms with many sleeping/lounging spaces. Property is located on a lot facing a pond - we had plenty of parking for the 3 cars we had. Home easily accommodated all of us with plenty of space, storage, and privacy. I've done numerous home rentals on VRBO and this kitchen was impressive. It is fully stocked with high quality pots, pans, bakeware, coffee maker, and flatware. Kids loved the game room. We spent one day at the indoor pool and at the playground- highly recommend it. The guys played golf - raved about the beautiful course. Kids enjoyed their time pedaling around on the bikes provided by the owners. We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation. We plan to use the property in the summer to enjoy a summer vacation - its proximity to Ocean City, Bethany Beach, and the outdoor pools/splash pads cannot be beat.

Beautiful home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, spacious, clean and well cared for house with plenty of room for our family and friends to either be together or apart. Downstairs was very spacious for our family of 11. The kids loved the upstairs loft with toys, games and all of the outdoor toys in the garage. The kids rode bikes and scooters outside on the quite, dead end street. Really enjoyed the sounds of the water fountain in the back of the home. The community amenities are great and we can’t wait to return next summer and try the new pool.

A little disappointed!

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful community with many amenities. The house was nice, but not cleaned and kept up very well. We arrived at night to find all burned out light bulbs on the front porch. After weaving through a maze of cobwebs, we finally got in. The carpets were terribly stained from the steps up into each bedroom. I was afraid to turn my ceiling fan on because it was so covered with dust and the walls were really marked up. Not a bad stay, just a little disappointed compared to other homes we have rented in that very neighborhood.

Owner's Response: Hi Jennifer, Thank you for staying in our house and sharing your experience. We are disappointed your stay did not meet your expectations. We would have appreciated you bring your concerns to our attention during your stay so we could have attempted to address them immediately. While the house is thoroughly cleaned after each guest, the carpet shampooing, paint touchups, window washing, light fixture cleaning etc. is done at the end of the season. Its not possible to shampoo carpets and do other major cleaning projects between guests as it will delay check in. Spare lightbulbs and batteries are left in the house to be used as needed. This is not just a rental property but also our beach house that our family enjoys on a regular basis. We strive to take good care of our home and our guests. Thank you, Julie

Plenty of space for our family of 9. Bayside is lovely. The house was beautiful and clean. Loved that we could bike to The Point everyday. The kids loved kayaking and relaxing at the pool.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Julie's home and had a wonderful time - my family included 6 adults and 6 children and everyone had enough room to spread out. The view of the pond out back was spectacular and we even tried a little fishing. The community had great facilities and we spent a lot of time at both of the pools. Kayaking and standup paddleboard was also available which we took advantage of. The home was in great shape (although it would get to 80 degrees during the day) and everything that Julie mentions was provided. Definitely recommend staying here!

Hope to have you back with us soon, Julie
