About Nancy Economos
This beach home gives our five children and their families access to the beach and time to be together. We like to rent our home to other large families.
Nancy Economos purchased this House in 2004
Why Nancy Economos chose Bethany Beach
I have been coming to Bethany Beach for over 50 years. My father and mother were teachers and loved to spend time at the beach during the summer. When my dad retired, he opened a small shop in nearby Millville, DE creating and selling handmade silver jewelry and metal sculptures.
What makes this House unique
Our beach home is close to one of the loveliest private beaches along the east coast of the USA. Our home is very large and includes seven private suites and a top floor with four mini bedrooms, allowing mult igenerational families to spend time together.

Gorgeous and spacious home and wonderful owner
We came here for a family reunion. Our group consisted of 8 married couples and some children. We all slept comfortably in our own rooms. 7 of the bedrooms have their own full bathrooms. The walking distance to the beach was less than 5 minutes. We came in late September, and still had great weather. The house also has a separate entrance and outdoor rinsing showers for those who are returning from the beach. We easily hosed all the kids down and got rid of the sand from the beach before entering the house. We also were able to use the owner's large gas grill, which we loved as we love to bbq. We spent most of our time in the kitchen/ dining area because there is a large dining table and also large island with many bar stools around it. The 3rd floor was a great play area for the kids and had plenty for them to do. This was a fantastic home and location, and we will probably plan a return trip in the future.
first two floors awesome...
Seven bedrooms are huge. Three times as large and can add two more queen beds comfotable. Kitchen was nice. Deck around narrow, but plenty. 5 minutes to beach, gated community with swimming pool access across the street. Two tv rooms had plenty of space to sit around.
Bad- constructive criticism
us 1 noise can be heard vs ocean.
2nd water heater had to be rest two days, but Nancy was able to walk us to reset.
3rd bedrooms had too much cold air or too little. Bathroom had no show for 8 beds. Did have shower and toilet separately in the basemen t. Older kids came to our baths to shower.
Overall. Good. Most convenient for 14 people. Would rent again.
Loved this Rental!
Celebrated my Mothers 80th Birthday party with the entire family in this beautiful home. The 7 master suites allowed all adults to have private bedrooms with full bathrooms and the 3rd floor had 4 additional bedrooms for children. Nancy, the owner of the property was a pleasure to work with. Eve though it rained much of our stay, the homes large entertainment areas and kitchen made for a fun filled weekend even in the rain.
Great beach house for large groups
We were there in early May as a group of 17 including a 6 month old an a 1 year old. Lots of space and beds. It worked really well for us and the owner was great. The only things to be aware of is that at least in the back left bedroom we could hear a lot of what was going on in the floor above us. Others in our group said the walls were thin as well. Not a deal breaker, though because, otherwise, the house has everything and is in a good location. Easy walk to the beach and a short drive to stores (3 miles).
Wow ! What a huge house!
Our family rented this property for a family wedding. We found it comfortable and convenient. The private bedrooms allowed people to have their own space and the public spaces allowed guests to join in on family fun. Walking distance to the beach and within a short drive to activities. Owner was very good about communicating. The home does border on Rt 1, coastal highway, so traffic noise was too loud to congregate on the outdoor deck. The 2 large family rooms allowed all of us to hang out together. Would rent again, great for large family.
You'll love your stay here -- we sure did! :-)
My friends and I have rented a number of vacation properties over the years. We generally have 6-8 adults in our party... and we've found it very challenging to find a space where people did not have to share bedrooms/bathrooms (except for couples) and where the bed/bath accommodations were relatively equal. (More often than not, there are one or two bedrooms that are really nice, while the rest range from okay to pretty crappy.)
We were delighted to discover on arrival that this was the PERFECT accommodation for us! The seven master suites were all equally excellent rooms, lots of space, comfy queen/king size beds, windows, TV, and each with a well-kept private bathroom! There's also considerable additional sleeping space in the top floor which seems like it would probably be ideally suited to a large herd of kids -- but we were the right number of adults (no kids) to fit the suites, so we only used the upstairs to play ping pong and foosball.
Another frequent challenge for my group is to find a place that has a serviceable kitchen -- we like to cook and eat well. This was easily one of the best appointed kitchens I've ever seen in a vacation rental -- it really had EVERYTHING you could want to cook for a large group. Plus the two ovens, two sinks, and two dishwashers GREATLY simplified cooking and cleanup. We never have any shortage of people willing to help -- it's just rare that all the help can squeeze into a confined kitchen space. But the redundancy of cooking and cleaning spaces really made a considerable difference in how quickly we could wrap things up and get back to shooting pool or playing a game of cards.
The living spaces were also ideal for a group our size too. Often when visiting together there's not enough seating and someone ends up sitting on the floor or bringing in a not-as-comfortable dining room chair. But here in the living room, pool room, as well as kitchen, there was never any shortage of seating. So wherever we meandered and ended up congregating in the house, we were always comfortable.
Last but not least, the owner was friendly and gracious and made a point of making herself accessible for any issues we might run into. We really could not have asked for better!
To sum up, we will DEFINITELY be returning to this wonderful home in future if it is open and available when we need it. Offhand I can't think of any higher recommendation I could offer than that :-).
Relax at the beach, go fishing, crabbing, boating, golfing, enjoy excellent
restaurants, watch a movie at the nearby movie theaters, play mini-
golf, go shopping at the outlets or quaint shops. Take the kids to
the amusement rides at the pier in nearby Ocean City or Rehoboth
Beach or simply walk on the boardwalk in Bethany Beach. Enjoy the beach, the sky, and sunsets. Smell the salt air and hear the seagulls call to each other. Gather shells, build sandcastles, sunbathe, or sit under the umbrella and do absolutely nothing but hear the waves and daydream!
