About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 6 Sleeps

The online availability-calendar is up-to-date.

Detached house is in a private location, wooded lot, by a canal, 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.

Relaxing and charming

  • 5 of 5

This is a cute house in a great location. It feels very secluded, even though it's just off the road. We found the house very comfortable and well-stocked. It was perfect for our four-person family--we loved the screened in porch for meals, and my kids really enjoyed the hammocks under the deck. The owner was fabulous to work with, and the property was obviously well loved and maintained with care. We're coming back for another stay this year!

Owner's Response: We are glad that other families enjoy our Osprey Nest as much as we do. I have it set up to be relaxed and comfortable (not pristine and antiseptic).

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home away from home for our family. All the creature comforts you need are there and we were quite comfy. Outside, we enjoyed the use of the kayaks in the lovely canal yards away, bikes, basketball, hammock, swings, picnic tables and the screened in porch. The home is centrally located for day trips both south and north of Bethany and very close-by the boardwalk and shops. The owner was there to greet us and make sure we had all we needed before leaving. We really enjoyed our stay and glad we booked here!

Our favorite part was the kayaks and canoe that are provided. The canal is just steps from the property providing easy access for the kayaks,the scenery is beautiful!

House was perfect for my wife and I!!!

  • 4 of 5

The house is very comfortable. All appliances worked well. It is very convenient to Bethany Beach boardwalk and great eating. We recommend the house for families interested in a quiet place after a long day at the beach.

Clean, peaceful, relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our week and hope to return sometime. The house was just as described, and the location was great--easy to get to the beach, local restaurants, etc., but quiet and out of the fray. With plenty of windows, ceiling fans, and the screened in porch (a favorite spot), we didn't need to use AC at all. And we loved having a canoe and kayaks to use on the canal (just steps away from the house). The bonus of being able to go paddling without having to make any special arrangements will likely bring us back again. Plus the owner was very nice and very responsive.

Nearest Beach
1 Miles
Bethany Beach, DE
Car: necessary

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, as well as a kid's wagon and jogger-stroller. 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 provided 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.

Activities (on site and nearby):

Beach! I usually see dolphins swimming and osprey fishing.

Golf, Zoo/Wildlife Park, Shopping, Restaurants, Kayaking, Boating, Jet Skiing, Swimming, Surfing, Windsurfing, Biking, Wildlife Viewing, Hiking, Fishing, Cinemas/Movie Theaters, Miniature golf, Driving Range, Crabbing, Canoeing, Beach, Sunbathing, small Video library provided.
