Our Family House is usually rented by repeat renters each year, but sometimes a week becomes available. Summer rentals are only from Memorial day until Labor day. Only week-long rentals (Sat-Sat).
Our family vacation house is a big house with three levels, five bedrooms and sleeps 12 people comfortably. Three full baths (one with bath-sized hot tub), two living-rooms, outdoor shower, 3 open decks, one enclosed porch, children's play room with a popular puppet theater, full modern kitchen, washer, dryer, 3 TVs, DVD and Video, Sat dish, etc. Tastefully decorated -- and not your usual beach rental decor! Ideal for a family with children or for two or more families to share.
You can see the sun rise from the 2 living-rooms and 2 decks with a 180 degree view over a beautiful 90-acre salt pond, and from two bedrooms through the floor-to-ceiling windows looking eastward over the pond which is often teeming with wild-life including herons, ospreys, crabs, geese, ducks, migratory birds, etc.; pond is ideal for canoes, kayaks, row boats, wind-surfing, and swimming from our private dock. The beautiful ocean beach is in easy bicycling or driving distance but too far to walk with beach gear for most people. It is about 1 mile as the crow flies and 5 minutes by car to north end of Bethany Beach board-walk. We have one ocean kayak for two people and another for one person; two paddle boards, also a large metal canoe: no extra charge but special conditions apply for people wanting to use the kayaks/canoe/paddle boards. For a small additional fee paid directly to the Salt Pond Association, renters can participate in the Salt Pond country club facilities are in easy walking distance (10-15 minutes walking) with swimming pools with life guard, tennis courts, volleyball court, half basketball court, exercise room.
No smoking, no pets, no loud partying. No loud music outside. No beach weeks, no teenage groups, no groups of young adults in their 20s unless known to owner. This is a family home and we treasure it.
