About the Owner

After college we joined the Dewey Beach scene and fell in love with the area! As singles Dewey was a blast, but as our family grew and we aged, we elected to vacation in the 'Quiet Resort,' as Bethany has come to be known. Our neighborhood is very family oriented, where you know your neighbors and a last minute pot luck dinner with friends, family and neighbors is the standard fare. Kids make friends easily in the area and ours have been in many more of the neighboring homes than we have! Bring your bikes, take walks along the canals, lose yourself in a good book (or borrow one of ours!), cook a meal in our well equipped kitchen or sample the many great restaurants suitable for any pocketbook and you will love the beaches!

We bought our home as an investment property and it has been a vacation rental ever since. Many families and friends have made many memories, some coming back year after year. We have tried to outfit the home with those things that will create the perfect back drop for relaxing, hanging out with friends, beaching it, fishing, or creating that huge meal!

Our family lives northwest of Philadelphia, our kids are now older in college and high school. Our children love vacationing in South Bethany, as do we. We hope you and yours will too! We invite you to place your reservation and make some memories of your own!

Lovely Beach Home fro Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a South Bethany Beach pet friendly home for an early September getaway and found the perfect spot in this large, welcoming home. Turned out to be a vacation for just my husband and me (after a long home renovation project we were not up for entertaining people) but the house can easily sleep a good group of family or friends. We enjoyed the rocking chairs on the porch, the close easy access to the beach, the quiet neighborhood and location to downtown Bethany. All of our communications were prompt and easy. Our little therapy dog enjoyed our day visits to Rehobeth and Lewes since there are outdoor dining places where he could sit and watch people. We especially enjoyed taking our bikes to the trail from Rehobeth to Lewes and will definitely make that trip on each of our future visits. The weather is always a vacation uncertainty but we were pleased that Hurricane Hermine did not damage the local area and just caused dramatic waves at the beach. When the winds changed at the very end of the week there were annoying flies at the beach from the land breezes so we cut our beach time short, read indoors and rented a Redbox movie. All in all a comfortable, well-equipped vacation home to enjoy.

Great place for a large family

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at this house. We are a family of 11 (8 adults and 3 kids). With 5 bedrooms it was the perfect size for us. Each family had their own space and we never felt like we were on top of one another. The house is very well maintained and very clean. The beds are comfortable. We loved the yard and the neighborhood. The house is a very short ride to the beach and downtown Bethany. The owner is very nice and helpful and open to having pets stay at the house. Overall great stay! I am sure we will be back next October!!

Love this house!

  • 5 of 5

Have been coming back to this house for years. Close to the best beach ever for swimming and walking. Never really crowded. Fully equipped kitchen. Comfortable beds and nicely decorated. Fantastic porch with rocking chairs to rock and talk until all hours of the night. Close to great restaurants and shopping outlets. Have spent time in the house for summer, winter family vacations and fall girls weekends. So relaxing! Love the screened in porch to eat outside at night in the summer and the fireplace to warm us up on cold winter days. Wendy the owner goes out of her way to make the house comfortable and special!

Wonderful week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Once again another wonderful week at the beach. We've been coming to the house for over 10 years and every year has been great. The house is meticulously maintained with all the amenities. Great neighborhood on a quiet street which is perfect for small children. Strategically located between Rehobeth and Ocean City for those who love to shop or want to walk the boardwalk. Can't wait to come back in 2015.

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

I am a repeat renter and love the house. I heartily recommend this rental house to you, and I will be returning. I felt that it was a home rather than a rental. It has 3 bathrooms and 5 bedrooms, which is great for my large family. It has many design elements that I like, including a large front porch for cocktails in the evening and a screened-in-deck in the back for eating outside. We used the front deck as a gathering place in the evening, and we really appreciated the rocking chairs. There is an outside shower with plenty of parking. The house is a couple of blocks walk to the beach, but I usually rode my bicycle to the beach. I found a great place to buy fresh veggies and fruit on Muddy Neck Rd in Ocean View. I often eat at the Cottage Inn, and the Subway and Hockers Pulled Pork make great sandwiches to eat at the beach or afterwards. I like the Rohoboth Boardwalk the best because of the shops. However, the Bethany Boardwalk has family events that are entertaining for all ages.

Location

From the Owner

We work hard! And we play hard! With many friends local and a far, we wanted a place that we could entertain larger groups without feeling cramped. Unfortunately we don't get to use the property very much during the height of the rental season, but when we are there our friends and family typically join us. Some day we hope to retire and spend some more quality time there, but until we do, the house is there for you to enjoy!

Well of course there is the beach, just a short walk away (2 blocks or 10 minutes walking).....But in addition, boating, fishing, wind surfing and kayaking are just a few of the water activities enjoyed in South Bethany which is nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the inland bays. Not to mention the numerous public paths, endless walking trails and downtown Bethany that affords vacation goers a plentiful assortment of shopping, fine dining and recreation. We are located in a quiet family oriented community surrounded by canals and beautiful views of the bay, where children ride bikes and play in the streets, where people jog and take walks without reservations about traffic or safety issues.

Amenities

From the Owner

This is not your typical rental! Our home has a personality, it is not a sterile environment, warmer than a hotel room and the peach walls, thoughtful decor and inviting setting will make you smile each time you walk in the door. Our favorite spot is the front porch with the rockers. We typically start the day on the front porch on the warmer days with coffee, appetizers and a favorite beverage to cap off a perfect beach day and a night cap before heading off to bed. The screened porch w/ceiling fan off the kitchen is where we take many of our meals, and the open back porch is a very pleasant location to tan and read when seeking solitude. The neighborhood is residential, with lots of fun places to walk or bike ride. Especially when you head out to the bay, you won;t be disappointed with the views! The house can cater to ten people easily and you won;t feel cramped and can find places to retire to when looking for some 'me' time. The kids simply adore the Bunk Room on the ground floor, where they can stay together, away from parents. We invite you to share what you liked in our guest book and what would perfect your next stay in our home.
