About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 9

This air-conditioned family beach house is a short walk to the beach in the second block off the ocean. There are 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths and ample living space. A large deck with a gas grill is easily accessible to the kitchen and dining room on the front of the house and a large, beautiful screened in porch is a haven in the back of the house. All bedrooms, the living room and separate family room and the back porch are equipped with ceiling fans for individual comfort.

The main living space is on the second floor. Stairs lead into the spacious living room that includes a flat screen TV and DVD player. The furniture is new (fall 2012) and very comfortable. Two full sized couches and two chairs create a perfect gathering place. Adjacent to the living room is the dining room with a large table and chairs for 8 - 10. Also connected is the kitchen which is well equipped with everything needed to cook fabulous meals, grill or host a crab feast on the back deck. Two large sliding glass doors lead from this area to the front deck which is a great spot for a morning cup of coffee, sunbathing or an evening gathering.

Three bedrooms are located on this floor. In the master bedroom you will find a comfortable queen-sized bed and a bathroom with a shower. A skylight and sliding glass doors to the back porch make this room a special place to relax. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed and the third has 2 single beds. Both of these bedrooms are close to the full bath on located on the hall.

The spacious back screened porch holds a table and chairs as well as a variety of chairs including lounge chairs. It is the perfect place to relax, take a break from the sun, sand and surf, read, play games, have meals and hold a crab feast.

Downstairs there is a large family room with a wealth of games, puzzles and books. The table and chairs is the perfect spot to keep a puzzle going or enjoy a game with family and friends. There is also a TV located in this room.

The fourth bedroom which contains 3 single beds is on this floor. The full bathroom has doors to both the family room and the bedroom.

The washer and dryer are in a separate room on this floor.

Since the house is on pilings, parking is easy and plentiful in the front of the house. In the back of the house you will find a clothesline to hang up those sandy towels and suits as well as a shower and additional hose for rinsing.

We have provided a binder that includes brochures and information about local restaurants, church services, sights and activities.

For the comfort and convenience of all our guests, we do not allow pets or smoking.

About Helen Steele Wolfe

Our family has been vacationing on Ocean View Parkway in Bethany for generations. We have wonderful memories of weeks with our grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins when the streets weren't paved, we had no phones or tv and everyone was on septic. Bethany has changed dramatically, but we still love getting together for time on the beach and a big crab feast!

Helen Steele Wolfe purchased this house in 1985

Wonderful, bright beach house that was a perfect fit for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our yearly trip to Bethany more than ever and a huge part of that was this lovely beach home! The owner was responsive to all our questions in a timely manner and once we arrived the layout of the home was inviting and easily navigated. The amenities were numerous and our kids LOVED that they had their own space to relax and enjoy time with friends. We got to know a little about the history of the home and family from the crochet and pictures throughout, making us feel right at home while making our own memories. Thank you so much!!! We’ll definitely be back next year.

It is just like being home but better!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the low key, friendly furnishing and layout as well as the well equipped kitchen. I do not think I have ever stayed at a vacation rental that had an actual tea pot available for making tea.

Lovely week in Bethany Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the house in Bethany Beach last week! The house is bigger than it looks in the photos and was light, airy and very comfortable. The owners are very responsive when issues arise and address them quickly. It's very convenient to town and the beach. We will definitely return next year if the house is available.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation here! It was an easy walk to the beach and the house is big enough to have everyone together and has enough rooms for the younger ones to have their own spot. We already signed up to go back!
