ADORABLE -PET FRIENDLY-CANAL-FRONT COTTAGE 1.5 BLOCKS TO BEACH

South Bethany Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

Enjoy the view of the canal from this adorable pet friendly ranch home located just 1.5 short blocks from the white sands of South Bethany's recently replenished wide guarded Beach (Memorial Day - Labor Day). Sorry but we only rent to families. We do not rent to groups, to young adults, or to families without dogs. Hope you have a fun and SAFE senior week.

This beachy cottage features 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths (one is a master bath), FREE wireless high speed DSL throughout the cottage and yard, FREE local telephone use, and a convenient office area in case you can't get away without working.

There is a fully equipped kitchen with all the standard appliances. The family room has comfortable furnishings including two queen size sofa beds, color TV, DVD/VCR player and radio. There is a full size washer and dryer in the storage area which is big enough to store your bikes and fishing gear as well - or put them in the outside storage shed. An outside shower is available to rinse off the sand after a fun day on the beach or out in the boat.

This unique cottage is located a few blocks away from a shopping area which includes family style dining, gift shops, a pizza restuarant, a gourmet cafe, etc. Because it is on the water you can bring your boat (or rent one) and enjoy beautiful sunset cruises, or quiet excursions into the national wildlife park for viewings of eagles, blue heron, etc. You can catch crabs and small fish right off the dock & enjoy family fun in the large fenced in yard (a license may be required for adults).

The cottage is located halfway between Rehoboth Beach, DE and Ocean City, MD. This general area offers tax-free outlet shopping, watersports, mini golf, championship golf, fine dining, boardwalks, etc. all within walking distance to a half hour or less drive from the cottage.

Hi- Thanks for your interest in my Cottage By The Sea. I have been blessed with living in the Delaware Resort area for over 12 years now and am very happy to be able to share it with those who want to vacation in this area. My dogs have always been a very big part of my life and that's why I chose to make my property dog friendly, because I know how hard it is to find a nice rental which allows dogs. I think most dog owners are responsible and will respect my property as they do their own so I am happy to welcome them. I hope anyone who rents my Cottage By The Sea will have such a wonderful time that they'll come back soon!

The Owner purchased this house in 1998

The Delaware resort area is such a wonderful area - the temperatures are moderate, the scenery is beautiful, the people are friendly, and the ocean... what to say about the ocean... Not only do we have the ocean, we have the bay and all the inland waterways feeding into the bay, one of which is in the backyard of the Cottage By The Sea. Walk one and a half blocks and your feet are in the white sands of the Atlantic Ocean beach at South Bethany, or take your boat or kayak out into the inland waterways to see the wildlife such as eagles and blue heron and stay for a gorgeous sunset. Why wouldn't you buy a vacation rental in this area? By the way, if you want to buy a vacation rental in this area, I can help you with that as well! I'd be happy to share with you the enjoyment of owning propety in this area. Sorry but we only rent to families. We do not rent to groups, to young adults, or to families without dogs. Hope you have a fun and SAFE senior week.

In South Bethany you are half way between Ocean City Maryland and Rehoboth Beach Delaware - both of which have big boardwalks with rides, etc. Rehoboth also has the tax free outlets. Bethany Beach has it's own boardwalk which is very kid friendly and safe. There is live entertainment on the bandstand at night in the summer, lots of good food, and fun in a very close proximity to the Cottage By The Sea. Sorry but we only rent to families. We do not rent to groups, to young adults, or to families without dogs. Hope you have a fun and SAFE senior week.

Dear Rose,
We couldn't wait to rent your condo again this summer! The kids grew so excited when they realized that we were staying at the "condo with the canal and the blue heron"!
This year, we took advantage of the Rehoboth Outlets, just 20 minutes away. The bargains were great!
Another day, we took a day trip up to Cape Henlopen State Park, and enjoyed a wonderful tour of the WWII watch-out tower, cannons and underground bunkers along the coast. What a fascinating piece of history!
This year, more than the first, we re-discovered McCabe's Gourmet Shop right around the block from your condo. Just the thought of their fresh pastries, baguettes, coffee and fresh mozarella was enough to get us all out of bed in the mornings!
In all, thank you for offering your condo to all of us out there in need of peace, body and soul. We sure get is here!
We will return again!

GREAT PLACE FOR A QUIET GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed here the week of Memorial Day. It was the perfect size and the fenced in back yard was nice for our dog. Finding a place that welcomes pets is very important to me as my dog is handicapped and I cannot board him. The cleaning folks do a nice job. You couldn't tell that dogs have stayed here. It was also nice that there were plenty of books, movies, and games supplied in case of rainy days.
It's only a short walk to the beach and a short car drive to OCMD and Rehoboth. Lots of great places to eat and a few grocery stores are nearby.
Rose, the owner is wonderful to deal with. She is prompt in answering any questions you might have.
I would love to stay here again.

LOVED OUR STAY

  • 5 of 5
Our trip was a spur-of-the-moment mother's day vacation for my 72 year old mother. We were very pleased when we walked into the cottage-by-the-sea. The great room is larger and brighter than it appears in the photos; we had plenty of room for five adults and two dogs. The place was very clean (although the carpeting could use a bit of spot removing in a few places, but there was no odor), and the four bedrooms were perfectly sized for our needs. Having one room with an ensuite bathroom was great for my parents. And my sister made use of the convenient desk/office area, since she was on call from her job part of the time. The home also has a large laundry room complete with a folding area and a sink. It felt like a true home-away-from-home.

There was a Dunkin' Donuts, a McDonald's and a convenience store within walking distance on Coastal HW 1, but we used the Giant food store on route 26 in Millville for our groceries, a five-ten minute drive away; it had everything you could need. On our last night we ate at the Big Fish Grill on Coastal HW 1 in Rehobeth Beach, and every fish dish we ordered was delicious.

Plenty to do even though it was too chilly for swimming at the beach (we did walk the beach, and since it was off season we could bring along the dogs); sightseeing and shopping topped the list. The house is convenient to both Rehobeth Beach and Ocean City MD. We also took a day trip to historic Berlin MD, which is fun if you like antique shops. (We had lunch at the diner there, and the burgers were perfect.)

I would highly recommend this home, and we would love to visit again. My thanks to the owners for providing access to their charming cottage-by-the-sea.

PERFECT EASTER GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was perfect for my husband, myself, our two adult children, their “significant others” and accompanying dogs. Anything we needed was there. My personal favorite was the laundry baskets in the closets ...... what a great idea, I have never seen that in any rental I’ve been in. We were all very comfortable. The dogs loved the fenced in yard (and so did we), it is so well fortified, even an expert escape artist couldn’t get out.
Thank you having such a pet friendly rental!

WINNER! WOULD RETURN IN A HEARTBEAT!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for an early spring weekend in correlation with a friends wedding. We have three dogs. Not only was the house, with it's fenced yard, perfect for dogs, it was pristinely clean, perfectly outfitted for our needs, and had clear instructions where necessary (shower, thermostat). The house is so close to the beach, yet the canal setting makes it feel different than a typical beach rental. Communicating with the owner was simple - she was quick to respond and eager to help, answer questions, etc.

GREAT FAMILY ESCAPE, AND VERY DOG-FRIENDLY!

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family decided to get away for Christmas, and we're so glad that we chose the Cottage by the Sea. We loved the location right on the canal with an easy walk to the beach…and talk about dog-friendly!* Our group’s five dogs especially loved playing on the sand and in the surf, and the grassy fenced-in yard made things so much easier.

The cottage has all the comforts of home (even better wi-fi than our own place) and the kitchen was well appointed with a good-size pantry, and there was a gas grill out by the picnic table as well. The great room is much bigger than the photos indicate, and the warm gas fireplace was a welcome bonus. We brought many dog beds and there was plenty of space for dogs and people. The large utility room with its side entrance and long hose was great for washing the sand off the dogs and letting them dry before going back into the house. It also had extra storage which would be great for beach equipment, etc.

The four bedrooms were fairly small but comfortable (4th bedroom with twin bunks is better suited to kids or small adults), and having two bathrooms was a plus for our group of seven. Being able to park four cars right in front of the house also was a nice convenience.

Rose, the owner, was terrific to work with every step of the way. She is clearly a dog lover, and we especially appreciated her flexibility with the off-season check-in/check-out times. If you’re seeking a home-away-from home for you and your pups in the Bethany area and want to be near the ocean without the ocean-side price tag, this is definitely the place!

*P.S. The cottage was squeaky-clean…some dog-friendly rentals occasionally have a bit of 'doggy smell' when you walk in, but not this one. You can tell the owner ensures good cleanings between guests. Just FYI: There is one low point on the side of the fence adjacent to a neighbor’s yard (due to terrain/trees) where a dog prone to fence-jumping/climbing/exploring might be tempted to get out, but ours stayed in and enjoyed their canal view.

Owner's Response: Thank you Deb for this wonderful review. I will make sure the fence is raised in the spot you mentioned - we don't want any of our 4-legged visitors taking themselves for a stroll on the beach by themselves! We're happy you had a good time and hope you come back soon!
