Over 1700sq Ft Of Fun, Large Rooms, Great For Families!

Welcome to your beach, golf and tax-free shopping retreat! Located on a quiet cul-de-sac in the golf and tennis community of Bear Trap Dunes, this cozy, very clean 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath town home is great for families, couples and avid golfers. This is a large, two-level home (1,700 sq ft), offering plenty of room for everyone to have their own space after a day of fun together! The first floor of this well-decorated home, has a private master bedroom and private master bathroom, large living and dining areas with cathedral ceilings that make it feel even bigger than it is, a gas fireplace, fully equipped kitchen with everything you can think of, a powder room and a laundry room with a full-sized washer and dryer. It has central air, fans in each room and plantation shutters. There's a screened-in sitting area and an outdoor deck with a picnic table, patio chairs and a large gas grill, as well as a garage filled with beach chairs, boogie boards and other kid-friendly amenities. Just a few steps away is a great, enclosed playground -- large enough for a good time and small enough not to allow for a lot of noise.

The second floor has two bedrooms, one with two twin beds and the other with two double beds and a window bed that kids just love. The two bedrooms are separated by a Jack and Jill bathroom with a private shower and two sinks. There are flat-screen TVs in each bedroom and a large screen HDTV in the living room – each with cable TV service -- as well as three DVD players, an I Pod player, WiFi, books, games and lots of kid movies.

The living room has a queen size sleep sofa.

Whether you're golfing at Bear Trap Dunes or other top courses in the area, shopping at the Rehoboth Beach outlets, antiquing or enjoying the beach, you'll come back home to a relaxing and peaceful retreat that’s just like home – enjoy!

Sleeps 9. Charges: Rental period, 5% tax, mandatory damage insurance, and 4% reservation processing fee. Bear Trap activity passes required for use of fitness center, pools, tennis courts and shuttle bus. Golf greens fees and range costs are separate.

About Rob Doherty and Carol Tanck

My folks had a beach home when my sister and I were growing up and it was a great place for us to have family time. As my wife and I had a family of our own, it was a great way to spend time with my folks and our kids. We hope to retire here one day, but in the meantime, want to continue our family tradition and maybe help you have one of your own.

Please let me how I can help you have a great vacation!!

Rob Doherty and Carol Tanck purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Rob Doherty and Carol Tanck chose Ocean View

My wife and I grew up in the DC/MD area and used to come down to the beach frequently. We already had friends who owned a place at Bear Trap and just LOVED it -- leaving all our work, stress and problems behind. The area's so clean, the people are so nice and you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of a wide array of activities, but come home to a quiet and peaceful environment.

I've tried to make MY PLACE comfortable, fun and an inviting space you'll want to come back to again and again! This two-bedroom, two bath is just the right size for a family (up to7) or two couples looking to get away; almost as large as a townhouse at a better price.

What makes this townhome unique

Our place is clean and fun, spacious enough to spend time together comfortably, but enough walls and doors for everyone to have their own space to catch up on a little reading or work if needed.

Beautiful Home...Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I love to vacation at Bear Trap Dunes, an oasis community of pristine homes just three miles from the beach. This house was immaculate and nicely appointed with shore-themed décor throughout, which was tasteful and imaginative. The kitchen was spacious and open, with every need anticipated. The screened back porch was our favorite spot for morning coffee and afternoon relaxation. It was just the two of us for this visit, so we had plenty of space to stretch out. But we think a larger family would also be quite comfortable here as well. The owner is very responsive and attentive to detail. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house, and we highly recommend it!

We had a lovely stay the house fit us perfectly we usually go to Delaware of peek times so it was not crowded.We loved the screened in porch the kitchen had everything we needed their was 5 adults and 2 boys plenty of room to relax. The only problem was the bedrooms up stairs had to share a bathroom, also we had to take our own sheets. Over all the house was very nice and we had a great time we would rent again.

Clean townhome in Bear Trap Dunes.

  • 4 of 5

This townhome more than met our expectations. We had plenty of room for our family of 5. The extra perks of having beach chairs, a beach cart and bikes were super! Not having to lug these items along was great! The townhome was clean and very inviting. Even the residents of the community were very amicable. The owner was super easy to work with and was very responsive. It was a short drive to the beach and restaurants. The only reason I did not rate it 5 stars was due to the pricey activity passes. We only used the pool twice and did not need the other amenities. These types of perks should be included in the rental fee and not made separate by the association. Nonetheless, we had a wonderful and relaxing stay!

Relaxing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This home is clean, spacious, and in a nice quiet area. It's nicely decorated with all of the items you'll need to be comfortable. We visited with our kids and the grandparents came for a few days, too. The house and community were perfect for the whole family!

Rob's communication is wonderful and he does a very very good job making the whole process easy!

We will very likely be back next year!!

Relaxing family retreat near Bethany

  • 5 of 5

Our family always enjoys our visits here. The location is ideal, especially for those with young children: the dead-end court makes it easy for little ones to walk, bike or scooter around, and the street has a small playground. The house’s situation at the back of the community makes it a quiet spot with a grassy view from the back screened-in porch and room to kick a ball around. The community’s location is still accessible to downtown Bethany Beach on one end, and the shopping centers on Route 1. It’s also not far from Assawoman wildlife preserve -- another fun outing. The house is well-kept, tidy and clean with a garage to conveniently store our bikes and other gear. The open plan also makes it great to cook or eat while kids read or play nearby. One caution for those with very young children: most of the bedrooms are upstairs and, while carpeted, the stairs are a bit steep; be prepared with a gate of some sort. You may also need a bed rail or portable crib and step stool. Overall, our stays are very relaxing. Renting this townhome made our stay much more manageable than at a hotel room and was comparable in cost.

And, if it rains you can enjoy the indoor pool, fitness club, and game room. Don’t hesitate to sign up!
