Stay near the Salt Pond
This is one if not the best beach rental I've stayed at over the past ten years. The location is gorgeous and the accommodations very nice. the kitchen in particular was very well equipped and spacious. We had a great time and will definitely consider staying there again in the future.
Beautiful location and property

Our family had a great time staying at this property. Especially the use of the kayak's was a bit hit with the family.
12 Years in a Terrific House
We love this property. The house is lovely and offers lots of private spaces for an extended family or a couple of families to vacation together. I especially like having the kitchen/dining room/living room and master bed/bath all on the top (3rd) floor with huge windows all around and great views of the Salt Pond. The large screened porch with its comfortable seating and nice breezes is one of my favorite places.
There are also three decks -- one on the third floor (great spot in the evenings), a covered deck on the second floor, and a ground floor deck alongside the gardens. The gardens! The professional landscaping is gorgeous with weeping willows, a fig tree, crepe myrtles, and many flowers and grasses and ground cover. There are several seating areas in the garden, which also offers privacy to talk in small groups or be alone to read.
There's ample parking for 4 or 5 cars and the Salt Pond community is a great place to walk or bike or exercise/swim at the club house. It's only a few minutes to the boardwalk and beach in one direction or to a good farmer's market and Giant Food store in the other.
We vacation with others who like to cook and this house has a great design for working together in the kitchen. Spacious and efficient. Besides the top floor living room, there is another beautiful living room area on the 2nd floor, along with three bedrooms and a very large bath. The ground floor "garden room" with bathroom has the added privacy of a deck with its own view of the Salt Pond.
We do not have small children in our group, but we have had children visiting in the past, and there's a fun room just for the kids with puppet theatre and a variety of toys.
We've been going to Bethany Beach for many years and I can't think of a better place for a family to stay. The location right on the water is special and, after a day in the sun at the beach, it's a perfect place to relax. The evenings are so quiet -- except for the night birds and a ripple now and again on the Pond.
A Great House
Our group of 4 adults and 5 kids (ages 4 - 11) absolutely loved this house. The house is well equipped with 5 bedrooms, 3 decks, screened in porch, hammocks, playroom for the kids, ping pong table, games and puzzles. The views provided by the Salt Pond were amazing. The kids really enjoyed the boats and crabbing down at the dock. The community is great for walking and biking. The beach and shopping were only minutes away also.
Quiet and convenient location with room for all
We've stayed at the Posner's Salt Pond house several years running. With a couple of air mattresses, our large group has averaged 13 people. The kids, especially, spend a lot of time on and around the dock crabbing, and making use of the various watercraft. The windows and decks all afford great views of the Salt Pond and its ospreys, herons, egrets, geese, etc.! The kitchen is big and well stocked and the dining room table is large! The beach is handy as is the G&E grocery store. The "help yourself" signs in the house are representative of the welcoming nature of the owners. The Posner's are easy to work with and very accommodating.
The beautiful ocean beach at Bethany Beach and town is the top attraction, although the Salt Pond community facilities are in competition for top activities during summer months. The Salt Pond community offers country club facilities like a big outdoor pool with kiddie pool and life guard (in summer), tennis courts, volleyball court, a half basketball court, an exercise room, etc.; there are additional charges by SPHA for use of these community recreation facilities. Golf: the community also hosts a good par 61 public golf course. The community and setting is perfect for kids and adults on roller-blades, bicycles, scooters, skate-boards, jogging, walking, etc.- i.e. flat, smooth, and low traffic. Our two ocean kayaks are available as are our crab traps.
