Photos and Description of this Selbyville holiday townhome

2 bedrooms, 1 full bath, 1 half bath, outside shower, sleeps 6

Updated, quiet lake front home in an amenity-filled community. Enjoy swimming, tennis, basketball, salt and freshwater fishing, beach volleyball, shuffleboard, playgrounds and biking without ever leaving Mallard Lakes. And you're only minutes from the allure of DE and MD beaches, boardwalk, shopping and restaurants. Relax on the sun porch with your morning coffee while enjoying the lake view, then head just 2.5 miles up the road to the beach. When you return home you can wash the sand away in the roomy outdoor shower, squeeze in a walk or game of tennis before dinner, and spend the evening watching movies with family on the HDTV. Mallard Lakes is a great place to relax at a quiet get-away spot, or if you wish, all of the activities of an ocean resort are there to enjoy, too!


Check in is 3pm. Check out is 10am.

We booked Mom's Place for a long weekend getaway and were thrilled to find such a relaxing place. We really enjoyed it and rested well! Thank you.

Great beach place!

My family stayed at this home in July 2007 and loved it! It was nicely decorated and situated in a great community. Unlike another reviewer we received all of our security deposit back, with no problems. We can't wait to return!

Perfect stay for our family

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at "Mom's Place" was an overall pleasant trip. It was a great location for us in many ways, close to family we were visiting, close enough to the beaches without all the congestion, and a peaceful relaxing retreat. Betsy communicated very well with all the rental procedures.

We are very happy with our stay and will rent again.

We really enjoyed our stay at Mom's place.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd trip to DE and we love staying in Fenwick Island. Mom's Place was by far the best place we have stayed at. The property was really clean and fully stocked. Lots of books, games and movies for the kids and adults. We used the pool pass everyday which was really nice after a day at the beach. We loved Fenwick island beach, but get there early on a weekend because parking fills up quick. We also went to theDelaware State park beach which is right before the bridge headed to Rehoboth. Both beaches were great and they have a bathhouse which was good if you are traveling with little kids. There are so many restaurants in the area-some of our favorites are Countryside cafe for breakfast and lunch and we headed to Ropewalk in OC for dinner. This place is amazing especially if you have kids-they have a playscape for them to play on while you enjoy a cocktail and enjoy the beautiful view of the bay. Food was fantastic too! We will definitely be returning!!

Wonderfully comfortable, great location & well-stocked!

  • 4 of 5

Arrived with little difficulty at Mom's place with husband and 20 year old child in tow. Was very pleased with the beachy feel of the house, the well stocked kitchen, living room and entertainment area (games galore, movies, books, etc.) and enclosed patio that was a little off limits due to the number of geese that hang out in the back. However, at night with the fan on, it was rather pleasant. Upstairs the bedrooms are spacious and comfy. There is an owner's manual which is a pretty thorough accounting of what's around, what to do, restaurants to visit (go to Luna's Cactus Café) and the best places to find a beach parking spot (did exactly as told and scored a free space!). Mom's outside closet of toys, fishing gear, beach equipment, etc. was very handy as were the grown up bikes (2 of them, 1 child's bike). We never got to use the pool or tennis court, but hopefully another trip is in store. You're very close to the Fenwick Island/Ocean City, MD line and about 40 minutes to the Rehoboth Outlets. It's a great location and easy to navigate! I hope we will come back. Thank you!
