About Kim Snead

We have rented many beach properties ourselves over the years and have taken that experience to make our villa a place that vacationers would love to return to year after year. We take great pride in maintaining our villa. We just love it and hope that you will too!

Why Kim Snead chose Delaware

The location is the best in the community! Walking distance to all of the community amenities, but yet still a quite location with great views. We take great pride in our villa ensuring that is is well maintained for the comfort of all of our guests.

What makes this villa unique

You could park your car in the driveway (or 2-car garage) and never use it again until it is time to head home. All of the community amenities can be seen from our doorstep, including the fantastic clubhouse and pools, tennis courts, basketball hoops, Boccie courts, horseshoes, volley ball and even a putting green. To get to the beach simply hop on the shuttle from the clubhouse and you will be there in minutes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family, friends, and I loved staying at the Bay Forest condo villa on Starling Road. The condo was beautifully decorated, clean and effectively maintained. The amenities are fantastic. And Kim was very helpful and friendly. We would love to come back next year.

Perfect location, spacious home with great amenities. Very responsive Owner!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great family trip to this home. We had little kids so the proximity to the pool, playground, bocce, putting green, etc was perfect! Owner was very responsive and helped us work thru some questions regarding pool badges. The pool is so much fun for the family. Short drive to all that Bethany has to offer. Would def recommend!

The perfect family vacation home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was the absolute perfect choice for our family vacation. The unit itself is beautiful, clean, and spacious- even though there were 7 of us staying there, we never felt as if we were tripping over one another or too cramped (in addition to 4 bedrooms, there is a living room downstairs, and also an extra sitting/tv area upstairs, so plenty of room for everyone). There are extra perks/surprises around every corner (bikes in the garage, a cabinet full of family-friendly games, puzzles, and Thomas the Tank engine DVDs- a hit with our toddler and preschooler!). The community in which the unit is located is quiet, well-maintained, and the pool is seriously paradise! There is a playground right across the street from the unit, basketball and tennis courts, and walking/biking trails all around the community. This really is the perfect getaway for families with kiddos who do not want to stay on the beach or too close to the beach towns. The community is about a 5 minute drive to the local shopping area which has grocery/liquor stores, restaurants/etc. On busy days, it took us about 20 minutes to get to Bethany beach (there is a LOT of traffic heading toward the ocean at peak hours), and about 30 minutes to get to Rehoboth. We did not use the community shuttle, but it is available to take you right to the beach from the unit, if you don't want to deal with struggling to find parking once you get there. It's been over 2 weeks since our stay ended, and we still can't stop talking about how much we loved it here. We hope to return again next year and for many years to come!

We had a great stay! The owner was wonderful at communicating. The house had everything we needed. The community had ammentities unlike any other place I have seen. I would definitely recommend this rental to others. The community was a bit strict, but it was beautiful.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with all the options available in the community. We enjoyed bike riding, walking, running, swimming and going to the beach. The home was clean and comfortable so we could easily make ourselves at home.
