Very quiet and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful. Everything we expect in a vacation home. Our family, including our fur babies, enjoyed the home, the property around the home and the pool. We also met a lot of nice people and their dogs. The whole vacation was very quiet and relaxing. Just what we want in a vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely feedback. We are thrilled to hear that our home provides a relaxing vacation for more than just humans but fur babies as well. We added a dog bed this year with them in mind! Happy to hear any suggestions to make our future human and fur baby renters happy! Thanks so much, Cathy & Rick

Very comfortable and convenient

  • 4 of 5

We found the owners to be very responsive and easy to reach. The home was a good size for six adults/three generations. It was packed with essentials, like blow dryers in the bathrooms, a cabinet full of spices in the kitchen, hooks everywhere to hang things, vacuum cleaners, a grill to grill out on, bikes/chairs/boogie boards in the garage, cleaning supplies/trash bags/saran wrap/foil, there was even a ladder in the garage that helped us with packing the roof rack on the car. Three flat screen TV's, one on each level, worked great for us. My parents found their own living space on the ground level to be quite accommodating for them. The bedroom downstairs has a queen bed but the room is very small, none the less, it worked for us and the attached living space and separate bath helped make up for it. We love being on the water and the sounds and views that go with it. Rick and Cathy were easy to work with and they've made sure this property is well equipped. We would definitely consider renting this property again and our week there was great.

Beautifully appointed, clean and pet-friendly!

  • 4 of 5

I wish I could have given 4.5 stars...This is a beautiful place in a perfect location just a few miles from Bethany Beach. The home had more of the "extras" like decent pots and pans, sharp knives, than we expected. The beds were super-comfortable and the views, spectacular, especially the sunsets. Despite it being pet-friendly, the place was clean and smelled clean.

We would have given 5 stars except ... First- no pool-- and no break on the rate with the pool being closed, but they did warn us right away. Also, no ice maker--first world problems-- but it would have been nice-- or -- fill the freezer with ice cube trays. The wi-fi connection kept going out but Rick was super diligent about trying to get it fixed for us. All in all, a really great place and because of the location, we discovered so much more to do than just going to the beach.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the feedback Marianne. I sympathize with your frustrations as wished the pool situation was a different one too! W-fi is something that we've just started having issues with this summer. Once we get down there, we'll be addressing this so our guests don't experience the same frustrations you did. I'm happy to hear that the things we can control, like cleanliness, allowing dogs and having extra amenities made for a pleasant week. Thanks, Cathy & Rick

Welcoming, well appointing home with great views!

  • 5 of 5

R&C have a beautiful home that is extremely welcoming and set up extremely well. The property was very clean, furnishings new and very well taken care of and plenty of nice touches were available for our stay e.g. starter TP, salt & pepper, cleaning products, games, cards, etc. The owners couldn't have been any more responsive to our questions. Also, the stunning views from the 3 decks were perfect for sunset cocktails!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay Monica. We maintain the home to our taste because we spend a ton of time there too! If there are additional amenities you'd like to see (we'd had some Keurig requests :)), let us know and we'll get them in for you next year. Hope to have you again! Rick & Cathy

Comfy marina townhome with view

  • 5 of 5

Nice beach themed vacation home. Plenty of room. Well kept and comfy. Kitchen well stocked with everything you need (pots, pans, dishes, utensils, spices, etc). Great water view from all three decks. Close to Bethany Beach..less than 10 minutes. Owners were very responsive and great to work with. We'll definitely go back if it's available when we need it.

Beautiful Beach Home!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough wonderful things about this beach home. Location was perfect, easy access to Bethany, Rehoboth and beaches. Amazing views, clean and very spacious. Our large family really enjoyed having their own spaces and being able to spread out. The 3 decks are definitely an added bonus. Water access was perfect for boaters, we were able to load the family with ease and find some fun sandbars and do a little fishing. The community was very family and pet friendly. It was definitely the change from the OC crowds we were looking for. Rick and Cathy were wonderful to work with. They truly made our first vacation in Bethany a great experience and can't wait to return.

Owner's Response: Sorry for the delay in responding Lisa. I love to hear how wonderful the water ways are for boating and fishing as this is something we've not really gotten to enjoy over the years since we don't have a boat (I know.... we need a friend with a boat... :)) Bethany is a breathe of fresh air compared to Ocean City although we still do go down there for crabs and subs. Hope to work with you both next year. Thanks again, Cathy & Rick
