THE SAND TRAP: OCEAN VIEWS! STEPS FROM THE BEACH!

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.

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

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.

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.

GREAT HOUSE AND LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Ria's home the last week of June and I can't say enough good things about it. We had 3 families for a total of 14 people and had plenty of room. The house is very clean and tidy. Location is one back from the beach with beach access right there. We loved the roof top deck-Had great breezes at night and wonderful ocean views all the time. Kitchen is fully stocked with anything you would need and lots of room in the large walk in pantry for groceries etc. We were sad to leave and look forward to staying there next year!

FAMILY OF THE GROOM

  • 5 of 5
Family from all over the United States traveled to Maryland for a family Wedding. We stayed the following week at the Sandtrap. The house was perfect and we had a wonderful time. It was close to Rehobeth and Bethany with all the amenities and activities people wanted to explore. The home was as expected and well maintained. It was a very short walk to the beach and perfect for younger kids to walk. Loved having the lifeguards on the beach ( not something I have seen on Florida beaches). Would definitely rent this home again.

PERFECT BEACH WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 13 friends and 2 small children headed to South Bethany for a 30th birthday celebration over a long weekend. The Sand Trap met and exceeded all our expectations! The house itself was gorgeous and well-maintained, with tons of light and a stunning rooftop deck. It had all the amenities and space we needed to cook meals, play games, and come and go without stepping all over one another.

Getting to the beach was simple as can be, just a short walk across the street. Ria, the owner, was also incredibly helpful and responsive any time we had a question. We left the house already talking about plans to return next year!

EXCELLENT PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
Our experience at Sandtrap exceeded our expectations. The house is very well maintained and very clean. Of course, we love that it is so close to the beach and gives us a more quiet and private beach experience. Everyone in our family was very happy that we selected this for our vacation and already considering to rent the property next year.

Great House & Location

We spent a short week over Winter Break at The Sand Trap and really enjoyed the experience. The house has beautiful views from the great room. It was well appointed and furnished, and the hot tub was good even in the cold. Owners and rental company were easy to work with and professional.
