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.

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose South Bethany Beach

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

home away from home

  • 5 of 5
This was our third year in a row at the cottage, and we can't wait to go back next summer. The kids came down to visit again, and the grandchildren loved it. They had been talking about going to Delaware for months. The dogs had fun in the ocean, and so did we (at the beach every day...thank you for the great weather).
The house has everything you need on vacation, and the neighborhood is quiet. Rose was very helpful.
Visited our favorite restaurants again (Parkway Tavern and Patsy's in Bethany Beach, Charlie K's barbecue in Ocean View) and tried a new place that was really good, Northeast Seafood Kitchen. And don't miss going to McCabe's Gourmet Market, they have great food and pastries (try their aged balsamic vinegar). The end of summer peaches and corn in southern Delaware are the best.
Too much to see and do in the area, but great for R&R.

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.
