There is plenty of availability in the fall, 2014. The online availability-calendar is up-to-date.
Detached house is in a private location, wooded lot, by a canal, overlooking a pond and marshland in the back, located at the end of a quiet dead-end street. It is one mile from the beach.
No smoking. No pets (but there have been dogs in the house in the past). We like family rentals. The person who signs the lease must be one of the tenants.
The house is twenty years old, good condition, nicely decorated and furnished. It is not a large place, but it feels roomy, with high ceiling in the living-dining-kitchen area and lots of windows. The kitchen is fully equipped and stocked (but no dishwasher). Canoe, kayaks, and bicycles are provided (but not guaranteed).
Rentals are Sunday-to-Sunday, so driving traffic is usually light, makes for a relaxed arrival.
Our Bethany home has two bedrooms. The master bedroom has one queen-size bed. The other bedroom has two twin beds (with a roll-away third twin bed). The living room has a queen sleeper sofa (not very comfortable, sorry). The capacity and limit of the house is six people (4 in beds plus 2 in sleeper-sofa). Please bring your own linens and towels.
The house has a full bath (shower stall, no tub), a half-bath in the master bedroom, and a really nice outdoor shower.
“Quiet, peaceful, relaxing. Nicely decorated.”
Our Bethany house has plenty of parking.
As an alternative to driving to the beach, the house is equipped with several adult and kids bicycles, and a bike trailer (to carry gear), as well as a kid's wagon. The house is one mile from beach. From the development, turn left onto Kent Ave, and turn right after three blocks onto Jefferson Bridge Road. Please bring your own bike helmets. (Can't guarantee the presence and condition of the bicycles after many tenants have used them.)
There is a canal next to the home. A full-size canoe and two kayaks are at the house, and paddles and life vests should be stored in the outdoor shower.
Two child life vests (up to 100 lbs.) should be inside, above the washing machine. If you take the canal to the left (southeast) you can paddle into the Assawoman Wetlands Refuge (osprey and bald eagle nests, blue herons, etc.). Basketball hoop on site.
