Comments from prior guests: 'What an excellent buy - we were minutes from the beach yet spent less than half of what it would of cost us to stay just a little closer.'
'I loved it, my wife loved it, my mother-in-law loved it, my brother-in-law and my sister loved, the six kids loved it and our dog loved it - a great vacation house.'
'We felt at home as soon as we arrived. What a warm and wonderful house. We got rained in a couple of days but loved all the books, games, videos you had for us to use. Your kitchen/dining and deck area were great. One night we had 20 for supper and everyone got to sit at a table or your kitchen island.'

Decided to go on impromptu post baby vacation with our two and a half-year-old and three-week-old. The house was perfect for our needs, and had tons of kids toys and movies to keep our little one occupied when we weren't at the beach or the boardwalk, which was just a few minute drive away. The backyard was a huge open field which was great for kids to run around and throw the frisbee to the dog. The neighborhood pool was just around the corner and we had a great time!
Really enjoyed our stay. The house has almost everything one could need. Make sure you take advantage of the community pool. It was nice to come off the beach and have a place to swim after dinner. Kids had a blast.
Our family had a wonderful stay here for our annual vacation to Bethany Beach. The four bedrooms were perfect for my wife and our three children. Each of the kids brought a friend with them and there was still plenty of room. The downstairs television area has three futons that the kids ended up sleeping on most nights, so we could have easily had another 5-6 people and been perfectly comfortable. The kitchen is fully stocked with all utensils and cookware you'd need, and the family room has a wall mounted flat screen television above the fireplace that isn't shown in the current website photos. The owner also added a built in couch that allowed our entire group to watch television or a movie comfortably. There's also a huge library of books filling an entire wall in the sittiing/sunroom area, which was great to find some good beach reads.
We also really enjoyed the outdoor space in the backyard. We had a couple cool nights where we were able to leave the windows open and listen the fountain in the backyard pond. There was also plenty of grass space in the back for us to play crocket and bocce. Also, if you have a bike it's a very doable ride to the beach each day, though I wouldn't recommend the ride for younger kids. One last thing, if you're looking for AUCE blue crabs the Blue Crab in Bethany was great and for $40.00 it all you can eat crabs, chicken and hush puppies. Looking forward to coming back here next year, and hoping to possibly book again in the early fall.
Headed up with family just after the kids finished school. This was the perfect set up for a family with kids. There was a desperate tv area on the entry level and the middle level so the kids could play video games and watch their shows downstairs while the adults relaxed upstairs. It's only a five minute drive to the boardwalk and beach and having pool and tennis court was ideal for my mother-in-law who didn't want to be on the beach the while day.
It was also convenient to have one bedroom on the entry level for my in-laws who couldn't handle the stairs to the third floor. With three full baths we weren't fighting for the showers after a day at the beach. When we all were gathered together it was nice that the main level had enough couches and built in seating to accommodate all 12 of us comfortably.
I would definitely recommend this place if you're a family or have a large group. It was very comfortable and homey and incredibly reasonable for what you get. I look forward to booking here again next summer.
My family and I stayed at this townhouse for memorial day weekend - it was great! We loved having access to both the pool and the ocean. Was wonderful to take the kids to the beach in the AM and then a dip in the pool in the afternoon. House was well equipped - we actually forgot our sheets and owner let us borrow the some. Kitchen is well equipped and plenty of room for our family of 6 to spread out in. Property back to a small pond with a fountain that was lovely to go to sleep listening to. Looking forward to going back again next year.
We rented this home July 2013, thinking that it would meet our extended family’s needs perfectly. We were disappointed in both the condo itself and in the rental process with the owner.
We found the owner extremely hard to contact, whether by email or by telephone, both before and after our stay. Our security deposit was not returned as required by the terms of the contract. Five months after renting the condo, we are still trying to resolve the issue of our security deposit. We had postponed writing this review to give the owner plenty of time to respond to us.
We were very dissatisfied with the condo itself. Smoke detectors in two of the bedrooms were disabled. The ground floor rooms had a musty odor. Two of the bedroom closets were completely full of the owners’ personal belongings so there was no room for any of our items. The TV in the master bedroom did not work properly. The deck was not in good condition with deck furniture that was stained, dirty, rusty, or mildewed so that we found it unusable. The stove and refrigerator were not clean.
The owners’ belongings cluttered most of the living spaces. Books, children’s toys, knickknacks, and ticking clocks were everywhere. Dresser drawers contained bed sheets even though we were instructed to bring our own. There was little room in the pantry for the groceries we brought with us, as it was full of the owners’ food. The refrigerator also had food in it.
We have stayed in many vacation rentals all over the country and have never before written a negative review. We will not rent this condo again.
