Beautiful house! We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

What a great house for large groups or family reunions. We absolutely loved this house and we will be back! The rooms are all wonderful sizes. We hope to rent again in the warmer weather and take advantage of outdoor pool and volley ball court. The kitchen was very well stocked. The theater room is amazing. All of the bedrooms were large and the number of beds in the whole sale is awesome!

We had a GREAT Winter Weekend in Bethany Beach!

Awesome place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is easily the best I've ever seen. Our family filled every bed, but it was so spacious, you'd never know there were that many people living there for the week. It was huge- the pictures don't do it justice. There were so many places to hang out- the pool, screened in porch, deck, living room, dining room, movie room. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware, and the rooms had plenty of storage space. It's obvious this house is well taken care of. It is a bit of a walk to the beach, but they even had bikes we could use. It was just wonderful!

A great place to make memories

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented the Toy Box for a fall extended family getaway, and it worked out to be even better than our expectations. Considering we've been renting different houses for 11 years running for this same group, that's quite a feat!

First, the house was even larger than the pictures and description make it appear, as other reviews have mentioned. The very high ceilings add to the effect, resulting in a great wide-open feel. One of the bedrooms that we couldn't quite figure out from the description was almost twice as large as we expected; with an en-suite bathroom, a queen, a double+twin bunk and two separate twin beds in their own "nook" it absorbs large family units with ease.

Ours was a Fall visit, so we didn't get to make use of the pool or the outdoor shower, but the Volleyball court and Horseshoe pit were used, and the kids had a lot of fun with the provided bikes and sports equipment.

The Kitchen, normally the bane of our existence when renting a house, was exceptional. Well-stocked with pots, pans, serving utensils, plates, bowls, cups, and more, and two good sized ovens for cooking for crowds. We sat 9 at the kitchen table, and 4 on the kitchen island, and saved the Dining Room table for card games, puzzles and other things that we normally scramble to find surface areas for.

The house was in excellent condition and clean and ready for us, and Tom called to check-in the day after arrival to ensure we were finding everything we needed. The home theater received an enormous amount of use, with at least one movie every day we were there, and all the normal haggling over kids (and adults) wanting to watch their own shows were non-existent due to the vast number of TVs in bedrooms and other areas.

The Wifi, a key point for the teens, had no issues.. .but even they spent less time on it than they expected, as there was so much else to see and do in the area. Convenience-wise, two large grocery stores and dozens of restaurants are nearby, making stocking up and going out simple and quick.

In all the years we've been renting houses, this is the first time where we truly found everything we were looking for and then some. Now everyone is suddenly talking about going back over the summertime!

The Toy Box has a permanent place in our hearts!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Bethany Beach to celebrate our Mom's 70th birthday and also have a family reunion. The house was PERFECT! We had a large group and not once did we feel crowded. The pictures don't do the Toy Box is HUGE! The floor plan is very open on the first floor and the bedrooms are gigantic. The second floor has a huge hallway, where many of our kids spent time playing cards and other games. There was plenty of space for everyone to find something that they liked to do (swimming in the pool, watching movies in the awesome theater room, playing volleyball outside, playing monopoly in the screened porch, or sunning on the patio). Another problem that we usually have with our large group is having enough places for everyone to sit...that was not a problem at the Toy Box. The owners have set the house up with plenty of seating and additional chairs available as well in the garage. There is adequate seating both inside and outside of the house. Also, the owner was EXTREMELY responsive. He called midweek to make sure everything was ok with our visit, which we have NEVER had an owner do on previous vacations. Thanks Tom, for everything. Your house will FOREVER hold a place in our hearts!

Awesome! Beautiful! Amazing place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

The pics online do not do The Toy Box justice! This place is even 10x better than the pics show since you can't see the whole house online!

The property was just AWESOME! Beautifully furnished. Very clean. Layout was great! So much to do there, actually no need to ever leave the house unless you really want to....

I would definitely recommend this place to friends! We had my husband and I, his mother, and his 5 siblings and their families all in this house at one time (13 adults, 2 teenagers, 3 small children and 1 infant) and we had SO MUCH ROOM for all of us!

The pool, the volleyball court with sand (kiddos used it as a sand box) and the horseshoe pits were all well used during our week's stay!

While I would recommend driving to the beach and paying to park, it was not very expensive ($1.50 per hr). The only ones disappointed with amenities in the area would have been the teenagers who were used to the hustle/bustle of O.C., MD, but there were shops, an arcade, plenty of snack food vendors and plenty of eats to choose from in the area. We did spend one evening in Rehobeth on the boardwalk (we loved it there too!) and one evening at O.C. (WAY TOO CROWDED with obnoxious teenagers & recent graduates). It is nice that you are in the middle of both towns if you want to do more than what is available in Bethany Beach's small resort area.

Thank you to the owners for allowing us to stay in our BEAUTIFUL HOME!!!!! I am not sure if we will able to get my husbands' whole family together in the future to come down again all together, but if not, we have plenty of other relatives and friends that said they would love to stay with us if we book your AWESOME house again in the future!

We were so looking forward to the trip to Bethany Beach and staying at The Toy Box, and we were not disappointed whatsoever!!!!!!!!

Only thing I was disappointed about was, LEAVING and having to return home on Sat. morning when our vacation came to an end!!!!

Can't wait until we can book this place again!!!!!!

WOW! What a GREAT house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for one week with our extended family, to celebrate my parents' mutual 75th bdays. The house was extremely spacious and comfortable, with roomy bedrooms, lovely bathrooms, a great screened-in porch, a theater room, and best of inviting pool and deck area. Although walking to the beach would have been easy, we tended to park or drop off members of our group (3 minute car ride, 10 minute walk). We all enjoyed morning jogs, the Bethany Boardwalk, trips to OC, Rehoboth. The house easily accommodated our group of 17. The owners have thought of just about everything--thanks for a great stay!
