About the property

large home; 4 bed, 2 full bath (one handicap), 2 half bath, sleeps 12+, parking

Newly renovated, large single handicap friendly home in beautiful quiet bay area near Bethany Beach and Indian River. We have 2 kayaks and a boat ramp. Enjoy a leisurely paddle around beautiful Beach Cove. Ideally suited for a single or multi-family vacation. Themed rooms are great for children and adults! The Tiki Room has a huge surprise in it - an African "Tiki God" tree carving. You will feel like you are sleeping in a tiki hut (with comfortable beds of course)! Romantic for adults, fun and imaginative for children. The Under the Sea Room is like being in a submarine. But watch out for Diver Dan! No need to pay for expensive Florida themed room getaways. These upstairs rooms each have 2 full beds and there is a bathroom with a tub and shower.

The downstairs master bedroom with king-size bed has a private bathroom with a large Jacuzzi tub and a huge walk in shower that has a handicap ramp, bench, and handheld shower spray. You can wheel in a wheelchair or just pile in the kids..The 4th bedroom has a powder room and there is also a 2nd powder room. Huge 73 inch tv, sateliite tv.

The kitchen has all necessary appliances. The dining room seats 6-8, breakfast bar seats 4. This luxury home is decorated and appointed to anticipate your needs while you unwind.

Enjoy a stroll to the marina where you can launch the kayaks or view the local wildlife: turtles, crabs, birds. Beautiful sunsets nearby!

We are located in a quiet community with private parking. Friday check-in allows you to enjoy a full beach weekend while avoiding the weekend beach traffic.

No smoking and no pets, please. This is a family oriented community. We ask that you observe a quiet time after 10 pm. FAMILIES ONLY PLEASE. NO high school or college student rentals please. This is a quiet area!I

About Anna DeRoose

My son and I have spent many fun-filled times at the Sunshine House. We love to boat, fish and enjoy the natural surroundings. We live in Baltimore where I am a healthcare professional. We enjoy similar waterfront activities here at our home. My 13 year old son has grown to learn much about boating , fishing and crabbing much like I did growing up. Now we have the opportunity to enjoy the things we love to do as a family. We hope you will have as many fun memories as we do.

Anna DeRoose purchased this house in 1998

Why Anna DeRoose chose Ocean View

I have been coming to this area with my family all of my life. I love this area: there are many nearby activities to enjoy. I have met many fantastic people along the way, had fun times, and have brought many friends here to enjoy the many attractions and beauty of the bay area.

What makes this house unique

The location of the Bamboo House allows you to do a variety of activities. There is something for everyone. You can play or relax. I have plans to add something to the home every year to add to your visit enjoyment. The themed rooms are a fantasy for the children. My nieces and nephews love it - they plan each night in a different room.

Spacious and good price!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our family vacation. Plenty of room and everything we needed as far as accommodations. Some areas of the property are a bit unfinished but it really was not an inconvenience. Good price for the amount of space that is there.

The house is way bigger on the inside than I had expected. My family and I enjoyed staying in this house so much. It's quite beautiful. The layout of the house works perfectly. I have a big family, but we all had fit and had plenty of space. The house is close to the beach and is in a nice area. The open concept is truly nice and perfect for everyone. There was a lot provided with the house as well. A boat, life jackets, beach chairs, umbrella, games and a ton more. Not every owner has those things so it was a bonus for us. Overall, my family enjoyed it and I truly believe others will as well. The inside of the house is really nice. My family and I are glad with the house we chose. If we go back, I would definitely take this house into consideration as long as the dates are open! The owner Anna was so nice and understanding. She made the whole process easy for me.

Nearby Bethany beach (2.5 miles): beach, miniature gold, restaurants, boardwalk, shops. Tax-free outlet shopping in the Rehoboth Beach area resort is a short (15-20 minute) drive away. Fishing, crabbing, golfing. This great central location puts you in close proximity to the beaches, shopping, entertainment, and restaurants of nearby Dewey Beach (15 minutes), Rehoboth Beach (20 minutes), and Fenwick Island Delaware (10 minutes) as well as Ocean City Maryland (20 minutes). All beaches have pay parking. Nature walks, biking trails.

Take the time to visit nearby James Farm Ecological Preserve. Within walking distance this is a great area to explore. It is a wooded area with marked hiking trails, observation platforms, and a beach. This is a great place for nature observers. The shallow water beach is great for families with young children. The kids can wade in the shallow, calm water while parents can relax while supervising. You will likely see horseshoe and hermit crabs up close, minnows, ospreys, and maybe a deer or fox. The park is open to the public and there is free parking.

There is also the Lewes Fairy - a fun ride to Cape May, New Jersey. There is a shuttle from the fairy terminal that takes you to the zoo. This is a fun day trip. There are also excursions to Smith and Tangier Islands. There are several nearby water parks. Lots to do!
