Rentals are only from mid-Masy 2014 until end September 2014 (October is negotiable). Only week-long rentals (Sat-Sat). Sorry, we are not able to accommodate weekend rentals, including long weekends. See below under vacation rental rates for rates.
Our family vacation house is a big house with three levels, five bedrooms and sleeps 12 people comfortably. Three full baths (one with bath-sized hot tub), two living-rooms, outdoor shower, 3 open decks, one enclosed porch, children’s play room, full modern kitchen, washer, dryer, 3 TVs, DVD and Video, etc. Tastefully decorated -- and not your usual beach rental decor! Ideal for a family with children or for two or more families to share.
You can see the sun rise from the 2 living-rooms and 2 decks with a 180 degree view over a beautiful 90-acre salt pond, and from two bedrooms through the floor-to-ceiling windows looking eastward over the pond which is often teeming with wild-life including herons, ospreys, crabs, geese, ducks, migratory birds, etc.; pond is ideal for canoes, kayaks, row boats, wind-surfing, and swimming from our private dock. The beautiful ocean beach is in easy bicycling or driving distance but too far to walk with beach gear for most people. It is about 1 mile as the crow flies but 10 minutes by car to north end of Bethany Beach board-walk. We have one ocean kayak for two people and another for one person; also a large metal canoe: no extra charge but special conditions apply for people wanting to use the kayaks/canoe. For a small additional fee paid to the Salt Pond Association, renters can participate in the Salt Pond country club facilities are in easy walking distance (10-15 minutes walking) with swimming pools with life guard, tennis courts, volleyball court, half basketball court, exercise room.
No smoking, no pets, no loud partying. No loud music outside. No beach weeks, no teenage groups, no groups of young adults in their 20s unless known to owner. This is a family home and we treasure it.
Off street parking for up to 5 vehicles.
The beautiful ocean beach at Bethany Beach and town is the top attraction, although the Salt Pond community facilities are in competition for top activities during summer months. The Salt Pond community offers country club facilities like a big outdoor pool with kiddie pool and life guard (in summer), tennis courts, volleyball court, a half basketball court, an exercise room, etc.; there are additional charges by SPHA for use of these community recreation facilities. Golf: the community also hosts a good par 61 public golf course. The community and setting is perfect for kids and adults on roller-blades, bicycles, scooters, skate-boards, jogging, walking, etc.- i.e. flat, smooth, and low traffic. Our two ocean kayaks are available as are our crab traps.
A Harris Teeters high-end food store in walking distance inside the Salt Pond Community.
Magic shows at Dickens Parlor Theater, in Ocean View, have family friendly shows and a restaurant.
