This was our second stay at this beautiful vacation home and we cannot say enough good things about it. The entire neighborhood is very well kept. The home is beautifully decorated, meticulously maintained and exceptionally clean. It even offers a BBQ, kayaks, life jackets, beach toys and chairs. It truly is a home away from home. We were 9 guests in all, and never felt crowded. There is a Harris Teeter grocery store and a Walgreens less than 5 minutes away. Bethany Beach Boardwalk is about 15 minutes to the north. That is our preferred beach as a family with young children. It is clean and has lots of quaint shops and food vendors, and parking is easily found for less than $10. I highly recommend you check out the Silver Stockpile shop there for silver jewelry at a great price ($15 pendant necklaces!). For the family that has teenagers and prefers a livelier beach, Ocean City is the same distance to the south (but takes longer to get to because of all the traffic lights). Parking is harder to find and usually a bit more costly though. In either location, check the internet for entertainment schedules at the beach. There are always concerts, fireworks, movies, competitions, etc. As for the owners, they are extremely friendly, helpful, and accommodating - couldn't be nicer people. I read in a previous review that a renter was apprehensive about not having the address until the day of arrival. The first time we rented, I had a similar feeling, but when I learned that it was a security measure I truly appreciated the reason for it. We even got to pick our own keyless access code prior to arrival, which really made us feel safe. Not many owners offer this. You will not be disappointed with this vacation home - 10 stars all the way!
