CHARMING, COASTAL COTTAGE HOME 1 1/2 BLOCKS TO OCEAN! TENNIS, PRIVATE BEACH

Bethany Beach House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, sleeps 8-10

The house is upscale, charming and comfortable. The entire house is professionally decorated. Both levels of the inverted floor plan have large porches, great for relaxing and watching the sunset. The porches also stay dry unlike decks that have little protection from the weather. The pictures of the house interior were taken in October 2011. The one picture of the house with the upper deck with curtains was decorated for a wedding.

On the first level is the entry and den plus four BRs with 2 baths. The second level is a great room with 1/2 bath plus the master BR with bath. The community's pool and tennis court are located directly across from the home.

This is a gated community in North Bethany (bay-side) with private ocean beach access (7 houses to beach). We also have a small dock in the community to launch kayaks or go crabbing. Bay view from upper porch. Cable TV, broadband internet and VOIP phone system.

Look at our pictures. taken in October, 2011, they say it all.

Ocean Ridge West gated community is located in North Bethany. The community offers pool (summertime), tennis, private ocean beach and area to launch a kayak or go crabbing.

The home is professionally decorated and different rooms have been featured in Cottage Style Magazine. The home has also been featured in Waterside Cottages by Barbara Jacksier as 'By the Beautiful Sea' (Amazon/Barnes Noble).

There are two large porches that overlook the community pool and tennis court. It is a short walk (1 1/2 block) to the private beach (across Route 1) with life guard on duty in the summer.

Bethany Beach is a fun, family beach resort with a close proximity to the Ocean City and Rehoboth Beach nightlife. Rehoboth Beach outlets (approx. 130 outlets) is a mere 10 miles north.

Stunning Beach house close to OC.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this charming beach house during this Labor Day weekend, the property is very spacious and even better than the pictures. The open layout of this wonderful home is very inviting and relaxing. Beach is just a short 5 minute walk across the highway, pool is right in front of the house, OC attractions are just 30 minutes drive from home so it was just perfect for us. We had a wonderful family time this house, and Bill is just so nice to deal with, we will definitely come back next year.

Our first stay at Bethany Beach could not have been better. The house was beautifully decorated, extremely clean and located in a convenient spot. Fantastic property. I would highly recommend it.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at this home. It is beautifully decorated, clean and has a well appointed kitchen. Unfortunately, we did not realize the community pool was not open until after our stay (Memorial Day), which is one of the reasons we rented this house (pool is directly across the street). You must cross the highway to get to the beach, but it was not an issue and we did not have any small children with us. Bill is extremely helpful and returns texts and/or email immediately. They have great Tommy Bahama beach chairs for the beach! And a wonderful outdoor grill. Everything in the home was top notch. We were also able to take our small family dog - who loved the beach. We will definitely consider renting this home again the week of or after Memorial Day so we have use of the pool.

Wonderful family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husbands family and our family stayed at this lovely home this past July. It was Amazing. The home was IMMACULATE and I am completely OCD when it comes to cleanliness! The decor was fabulous, professionally designed to utilize every nook and cranny of space. The floor plan was great and it was perfect for our family. Bethany is a gorgeous town close to everything but far enough away to feel serene and peaceful. The development that the house was in was beautiful. The beach was super close and gorgeous. Being a private beach was great because it was never crowded or loud. The ONLY and ( I hate to even write this but as a parent with your kids I do think it should be noted ) small draw back was crossing the highway to get to the beach. The cars are flying down 1 and its daunting to cross with big groups and especially with smaller kids (mine were the youngest cousins at 5 and 7 years old)
I wish there was a crossing light so cars would yield to pedestrians. Again- this was my ONLY issue and I don't think it would necessarily deter us from staying there again but I thought I should mention this as a parent. The owners were great to deal with and extremely quick to respond to anything. Lovely home, amazing vacation.

Quiet and Beautiful

  • 4 of 5
Our family loved staying here. The home was near the beach and pool across from us. The kitchen had everything, even a waffle maker. The house was very clean too. The only problem was being close to the road because you could hear the traffic. Would stay there again!

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family absolutely loved our vacation at Bethany Beach! The property is exactly as pictured and advertised. It's extremely clean. The numerous windows made it bright and offered lots of light. The porches and open floor plan were great for socializing and relaxing. It had everything we needed and more (including the baby gates to block off the stairs). It accommodated all 6 adults and 4 children (age 4 and under) perfectly. We loved the quiet gated community. We took numerous walks around the plan. We cooked most of our meals in, but enjoyed lunch at The Blue Crab, dinner at Bethany Blue's one evening, and take out from Grotto's Pizza (all within 3 miles from the house). We loved having the swimming pool directly across the street from the house and the short walk to the beach was a breeze (we put the kids in the stroller which made it easy). The beach was gorgeous and we pretty much had it all to ourselves! We also took the kids to the playground near Bethany's Boardwalk which they loved. The owner was extremely informative, easy to get a hold of, and quick to respond to questions. We would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking to get away for a quiet, family oriented, beach vacation and we look forward to returning to this home at Bethany Beach again!

Ocean Ridge Community Private Beach

Bethany Beach is a major family friendly community on the Delaware seashore. Located between Ocean City and Rehoboth, it is much quieter and more relaxing. The city has a boardwalk, good restaurants and shops. The area has charter boating, golf and discount malls (Rehoboth) to name three popular activities. This property is approximately 3 miles north of the city center in Ocean Ridge West and 1 1/2 blocks from the ocean. The gated community has a swimming pool (open mid June to Labor Day and weekends from Memorial Day to mid june), tennis court and private community beach with lifeguards in the summer months. Our beach is much less crowded than being in town or needing to go to a national seashore park to get to the beach as many rental properties do not have direct beach access.

Other Activities: crabbing, kayaking
