Overview

South Bethany Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 13-14)

Relax and enjoy the morning sun as you look out at the ocean from the living spaces of this 6-bedroom home. Its location in a corner lot affords this home plenty of natural light and beautiful views.

Sit down to eat breakfast with your family and friends in a table that stretches to seat twelve. Then put on your bathing suit, cross the one-lane street and you are at the life guarded beach! When you're ready for a change of scene, come home and relax in the hot tub or in one of the two shaded porches.

Spend the afternoon strolling the neighborhood, biking to the nearest shops, or simply hanging out. In the evening dining and entertainment can be had in Bethany, Rehoboth or Ocean City, MD. Before going to bed, be sure to climb the stairs up to the crow's nest to count the stars!

Built in 2005, the Sand Trap comfortably accommodates large groups of friends and families. Three of the bedroom suites have their own bathroom and there is parking for five vehicles on the property plus off street parking for two with a permit.

About The Owner

My husband and I settled in the Maryland suburbs of Washington DC area over twenty years ago. From early on, vacations in Rehoboth and Bethany with our children became a favorite tradition. We've had the opportunity to vacation as a family in some of the best beaches in the US, Mexico and the Caribbean. However, nothing has ever replaced the comfort and sense of belonging that we get vacationing close to home in the Delaware Shore!

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose South Bethany Beach

After spending two years looking for a home in the Bethany area, we were finally were able to make our dream come true by buying a beach house in the summer of 2009. I remember clearly the day in late June when my husband who regularly surfed the real estate listings exclaimed 'Here it is! Our new beach house!' We were drawn in by the brightness of the home, its excellent condition, and the size of the house which lent itself to large gatherings with friends and family. The South Bethany area offered a good compromise between the seclusion of the private beaches of North Bethany and the crowds in downtown Bethany. We also felt that the life guarded beach would appeal to the families with young children that we hoped to share our house with. Finally, the young age of the house meant that it was up-to-date and likely to have less maintenance problems than an older home.

What makes this house unique

The Sand Trap is one house away from the ocean so sitting down in the morning with a cup of coffee and looking at the ocean is one of our favorite activities. If you are an early riser, you can watch the sunrise from inside the house or one of the decks. The crow’s nest also is a favorite hangout providing views north far up the beach and of sunsets across the tops of the houses and trees of Bethany. At night one can check out the stars or moonlight on the ocean while listening to the waves. You can actually hear the waves crashing on the beach from inside the house, but the sound is soothing and not overpowering as it might be with an oceanfront home. We love the home's closeness to downtown Bethany (1.5 miles), to Ocean City (8.5 miles), and to Rehoboth (13.5 miles). Shopping in Delaware is tax free, thereby giving those who don't typically like to shop an excuse to go! Most of all we enjoy sharing the company of our friends and family around a good meal, a sand castle on the beach, or in the hot tub.

Time at the Sand Trap

  • 5 of 5

The booking process and information was easy and the homeowners responsive to questions. Picking up the keys to the home was a breeze and the home itself met all of our expectations. The view of the ocean from the living room was a perfect way to start a day. While we would have wished for warmer weather for our time at the shore, the home itself had all the amenities to make the time spent indoors very pleasant.

Great house, great beach & great location.

  • 4 of 5

The house is large and clean with an easy walk to wide beach. The kitchen was well stocked and fairly functional. It seems like a quaint beach town that have nearby shopping, restaurants and fun activities for kids. What more could you want or need?

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

First impression I had was how clean the place was. The house was very large and every room was spotless. The hot tub was in a great location and was on and ready for us when we arrived. I will definitely be renting this house again.

Fun in the sun....

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of family and friends looking for a relaxing week at the beach. The Sand Trap was exactly what we were looking for in a beach get a away. The house was spotless when we arrived and was very well maintained. The house is large, with 6 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. The main living area is up on the top floor so you can take advantage of the view of the ocean. This area is composed of a large kitchen with everything you will need to prepare your meals, a dinning area with table and chairs for a large group, and a living area with a sectional couch and three recliners. We always had plenty of room for everyone to gather. It is literally steps to the beach, cross the street and you are there! My favorite area was the crows nest where I went every morning to catch the sunrise.....just beautiful. The Sand Trap is centrally located, just a few minutes in the car and you can get to Rehoboth or Ocean City. Also important to us was the neighborhood, it is a very quiet, family oriented area.

Family Reunion/70th Birthday Celebration: Four Families (Three Generations)

  • 5 of 5

We planned a surprise 70th birthday for our mother at Bethany Beach. The Sand Trap was the perfect accommodation for our large family. Plenty of sleeping space and a wonderful common/great room for everyone to play, eat and hang out in the morning and evening. It is right next to the beach -- a two minute walk and you're at the ocean. We spent most of our time at the beach. Bethany proper is only a mile away -- a nice walk or easy, easy drive. There is a great view from the top of the house (The Crow's Nest) that is perfect for an evening drink or an early morning cup of coffee and a book. The house has many 'extra' accommodations (books, DVD player, games, puzzles, hot tob etc.) which our family used. Plenty of bathrooms, outside showers to wash off the sand and a great laundry set up on the first floor. We loved the kitchen and did most of our cooking and eating in. The only thing we would change is to move the grill away from the hot tub -- possibly on the first deck. We We had a very memorable and wonderful week at the Sand Trap. We would definitely return here again with this large group.
