Overview

Bethany Beach House Rental Photos and Description

7 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 17-19), renovated in 2013

Why Rent This House? --

Named Delaware's Rental Home of the Year in 2004 and newly renovaterd in 2013, this fabulously appointed, multimillion-dollar home features ocean views and breathtaking interior spaces. Fondly known around Bethany as the iconic 'purple house,' this property is among the area's most unusual, luxurious and spacious rentals.

The house sits just one lot away from the ocean and 3 blocks from Bethany’s town center — within steps of restaurants and specialty foods shops, boutiques, and ice cream parlors. And it is a short drive from 140 outlet, tax-free shops in Rehoboth Beach.

What Does the House Offer?

Ideal for families and large groups, the house sleeps 19. On the ground level are two masters with kings, one master with a queen and a twin, one bedroom with 2 twins that uses a hall bath, and a master with 2 sets of bunk beds. Upstairs on the living/dining/kitchen area, is the primary master with a king bed and a bath with a large, walk-in shower and a 2-person Jacuzzi. Also on this floor is a powder room and a private den with a queen sleep-sofa. The third floor loft has a very small bedroom with a full bed, and a computer/work area. The large open-concept kitchen features an array of cookware and countertop appliances, two sinks and two ovens. There is a small beverage fridge in the laundry room to take overflow from the kitchen fridge. Our 2013 additions include all new appliances and a 50-bottle wine cooler. Amenities include Hi Spd Intenet and WIFI, five TVs, (one HDTV) with DVD players and a home theater center. A sensational setting and destination in itself, this home was designed by an award-winning architect and has been featured on tours and in home design articles.

Description of the Area and Activities

The beach is about 30 yards away from the house and there is off street parking for 6/7 cars. And if you need it, here is metered parking all along the beach and board walk. The beach has life guards, showers, and chair and umbrella rentals. You can buy food and drinks on the boardwalk which is near the house.

This House is Appropriate for These Kinds of Groups

This has been the perfect house for family, groups of golfers, reunions, wedding parties, showers, 'crafty ladies' gatherings, scrapbook weekends, small business or religious retreats, or just for a quiet vacation. You could lease this house for a weekend, week or a month, and enjoy every minute of the comfortable and beautiful surroundings provided in the furnishings, appointments and neighborhood.

Things To Do In The Area

The town of Bethany – Called the Quiet Resort - is an easy 5 minute walk from the house. It is quaint beach town with about 4 blocks of stores and restaurants. The town has a good playground for children and a boardwalk where music will often be heard from the new band stand. A few of our favorite restaurants include Bethany Blues BBQ, Baja Grille for great Mexican food, Parkway, and Sonoma’s-all in town.

Ocean and bay watersports - charter boat fishing, wind surfing. Local watersports: swimming, crabbing, clamming, boating, kayaking, jet skiing, sailing, sport fishing, beachcombing, surfing, shelling, windsurfing.

Day Trip about a half hour from Bethany: Rehoboth Beach: The town is much larger than Bethany and boasts many shopping and dining options. You can also go antiquing. There is also fabulous sales tax free outlet shopping at 140 Outlet stores. Lewes: Smaller than Rehoboth but a good day trip...very quaint.

Beautiful house in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the first time in 2014. It is by far the best house we have rented in Bethany in the thirty years we've been coming to Delaware. Great open space, plenty of seating, bright and clean and well maintained, lots of bedrooms with bathrooms en-suite. Adults and kids had a wonderful week. Owner was great to deal with. Will definitely be back.

Best Thanksgiving Ever

  • 5 of 5

My wife's family had a get together the weekend before Thanksgiving. She has a large family and there were 6 children from 10 months to 8 years old, 11 adults and 1 dog. This house could of not been a better venue for that many people. First off, it is beautiful. Secondly it is huge with many bedrooms and bathrooms. Additionally the primary area of the kitchen, dining room, family room was huge, open and great views. There was plenty of space for the kids to play inside and also for the adults to have their own space too.

The location was also great, especially with that many kids. The house is only several blocks from downtown Bethany and one block from the ocean and boardwalk.

We could not of been happier and would come back in a heartbeat.

Great time with family

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned to the Purple House for a long weekend and found it as immaculate as it was four years ago when we spent a July week. The open design is perfect for large families and the house has lovely amenities. The kitchen is well equipped and we found it no problem for several people to be working in the kitchen at the same time. The house is bright and well appointed.

We love it being so close to the beach, just across the street, and love the ocean view from many of the windows. Also, being able to walk right into Bethany for shopping, and dining is such a plus. The parking was great, as we had several cars.

We all agreed that we will not wait 4 years to come back.

Almost cried when time to leave

  • 5 of 5

Our family traveled to Delaware for a wedding. Eleven of us stayed in the Purple House which was clean, well-maintained, comfortable and luxurious. Believe it or not, the photos are accurate...this house looked exactly like the numerous pictures on the web site and it is breathtaking.

We walked to the beach and boardwalk every day which is just one lot away. The property is in a quiet residential area, but also just a few short blocks from many shops and restaurants.

The owner, and manager provided good service throughout the whole rental process, and maintained regular contact by e-mail.

We would highly recommend this property to friends, relatives or anyone who would like to spend time in a spectacular custom designed home with ocean views, jacuzzi tub, outdoor decks, all the comforts of home, and more.

When it was time to leave, we almost cried because it had become so much like home for the time that we were there.

Bunko Group 20th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

The twelve of us have been playing Bunko together once a month for 20 years. We wanted to do something special to celebrate 20 years of fun and friendship. Our long weekend at the Bethany Beach Purple House was just perfect. There was plenty of room for all of us. The house is beautiful and had everything we needed. The main living area was perfect for all of us to get together. We had great weather and fabulous accommodations.
