Beautiful house in perfect location

Review submitted: August 22, 2014   Date of arrival: August 9, 2014

We stayed here for the first time in 2014. It is by far the best house we have rented in Bethany in the thirty years we've been coming to Delaware. Great open space, plenty of seating, bright and clean and well maintained, lots of bedrooms with bathrooms en-suite. Adults and kids had a wonderful week. Owner was great to deal with. Will definitely be back.

Best Thanksgiving Ever

Review submitted: January 13, 2013   Date of arrival: November 16, 2012

My wife's family had a get together the weekend before Thanksgiving. She has a large family and there were 6 children from 10 months to 8 years old, 11 adults and 1 dog. This house could of not been a better venue for that many people. First off, it is beautiful. Secondly it is huge with many bedrooms and bathrooms. Additionally the primary area of the kitchen, dining room, family room was huge, open and great views. There was plenty of space for the kids to play inside and also for the adults to have their own space too.

The location was also great, especially with that many kids. The house is only several blocks from downtown Bethany and one block from the ocean and boardwalk.

We could not of been happier and would come back in a heartbeat.

Great time with family

Review submitted: January 6, 2013   Date of arrival: November 16, 2012

My family just returned to the Purple House for a long weekend and found it as immaculate as it was four years ago when we spent a July week. The open design is perfect for large families and the house has lovely amenities. The kitchen is well equipped and we found it no problem for several people to be working in the kitchen at the same time. The house is bright and well appointed.
We love it being so close to the beach, just across the street, and love the ocean view from many of the windows. Also, being able to walk right into Bethany for shopping, and dining is such a plus. The parking was great, as we had several cars.
We all agreed that we will not wait 4 years to come back.

Almost cried when time to leave

Review submitted: October 3, 2010   Date of arrival: September 24, 2010

Our family traveled to Delaware for a wedding. Eleven of us stayed in the Purple House which was clean, well-maintained, comfortable and luxurious. Believe it or not, the photos are accurate...this house looked exactly like the numerous pictures on the web site and it is breathtaking.

We walked to the beach and boardwalk every day which is just one lot away. The property is in a quiet residential area, but also just a few short blocks from many shops and restaurants.

The owner, and manager provided good service throughout the whole rental process, and maintained regular contact by e-mail.

We would highly recommend this property to friends, relatives or anyone who would like to spend time in a spectacular custom designed home with ocean views, jacuzzi tub, outdoor decks, all the comforts of home, and more.

When it was time to leave, we almost cried because it had become so much like home for the time that we were there.

Bunko Group 20th Anniversary

Review submitted: May 6, 2009   Date of arrival: April 24, 2009

The twelve of us have been playing Bunko together once a month for 20 years. We wanted to do something special to celebrate 20 years of fun and friendship. Our long weekend at the Bethany Beach Purple House was just perfect. There was plenty of room for all of us. The house is beautiful and had everything we needed. The main living area was perfect for all of us to get together. We had great weather and fabulous accommodations.

My family and I spent a whole week at the "purple house". It was the first time we had all been on vacation in many years. It was wonderful! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to stay. There were fifteen of us and more than enough rooms. Two of the things we enjoyed the most were the fantastic open kitchen, where we cooked a huge family meal together. Also, the beautiful deck overlooking the ocean. We sat there many nights as a family and just took in the scenery. We had a great time and can't wait until next year!!

We celebrated my dad's 80th birthday at this beautiful house. The openess of the second floor and well appointed kitchen definetly helped as we prepared the birthday dinner. You could see the ocean from third floor, what a relaxing area. This was the first rental home I've come across that had very comfortable beds/mattresses. The close proximity to the town was appreciated by all. Thank you for a great celebration weekend.
