Attractive Private Quiet Bethany Beach Home, Detached House

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Jul 16, 2016
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 6 Sleeps

There is plenty of availability in the fall, 2015. 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.

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.

Delightful Hide-a-Way

  • 5 of 5

We found this beach house to be exactly as advertised. It is perfect for 2-4 adults in a quiet corner of a development. It is close enough to the beach, golf courses, shopping etc. to meet everyone's needs but secluded enough to enjoy quiet down time peacefully. We especially enjoyed the screened in porch for evening activities. We could enjoy the breezes with NO bugs!

excellent house

  • 5 of 5

The house was excellent, clean and well decorated. The markings on the door and light switches were very helpful. The movie collection was great. The Canoe and the Kayaks were the added bonus with life jackets. The whole family enjoyed on the canal. Lots of crabs though we did not use the crab catchers. Great canopy. Basketball hoop and the balls were perfect for my son. The little things like hand soap, bathroom rolls and kitchen towels makes it very comfortable when we arrived. The outside shower room is very spacious.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Beach : Bethany Beach, DE at 1 Miles 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.
