Overview

Bethany Beach Townhome Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 9

"...the views were spectacular. Our vacations have not compared since our stay here.''

"Every level of the house gave us fabulous views of the ocean; mesmerizing! We fell asleep listening to the waves crashing!...''

''...the many ocean views and sensation of really being at the beach every moment of our stay - that was what made it extraordinary...''

-- From our guest reviewers on Homeaway & VRBO.

If you vacation at the shore to enjoy the beach, then you've just found the perfect spot in a private, timeless beach home that's been a favorite getaway since the summer of '68....

LOCATION - This northernmost oceanfront home in Bethany Beach literally sits on the sand with the beach at your door and 2800 preserved acres of oceanfront and dunes to the north. Tucked away on one of the most tranquil and scenic spots along the mid-Atlantic with a wide sandy beach and natural, preserved setting, this unique beach home offers the opportunity to truly relax and immerse yourself in the beach experience 24/7 while on vacation.

FIVE PORCHES/DECKS & ENDLESS VIEWS - Beach views, ocean views, Delaware State Seashore views... Watch your family play on the beach just outside, have dinner oceanfront on the screened porch or take in a sunrise over the Atlantic while watching the dolphins play and the fishermen at the State Seashore reel in their first catch of the day - all without leaving your house!

DIRECT OCEANFRONT - Step off your deck DIRECTLY onto our private beach! No dragging chairs, coolers or kids for blocks or even over a dune crossing and no worries about finding a bathroom, packing up for lunch, or what to do with bored kids who want to go back to the house.

IDEAL LAYOUT INCLUDING TWO OCEANFRONT BEDROOMS EACH WITH THEIR OWN PRIVATE DECK - A spiral staircase leads to two oceanfront bedrooms letting you enjoy miles of unobstructed ocean and dune views and the sounds of surf crashing just outside your door. A great layout for families or two couples since each enjoys their own oceanfront room with beachfront deck or porch and separate bathrooms. The third bedroom is ideal for adults or kids with two additional double beds and the third floor loft offers extra living or sleeping space with a twin daybed plus a pull-out twin trundle. A queen sleep sofa on the first floor provides additional sleeping options.

ACTIVITIES - Beach and Delaware State Seashore just outside your door offering swimming, fishing, jogging and biking, kayaking and surfing plus beach volleyball at our oceanfront community court, private tennis courts, large playground and a private pavilion. Some of the area's best biking and hiking trails and nature centers (Bethany Nature Center, James Farm, Bethany Lifesaving Center). Fantastic seafood restaurant right in the community with a great happy hour and even a walk up window for those nights when you don't feel like cooking! And don't forget to grab a snowcone as the Jeep rolls down Ocean Road in the late afternoon...

OR JUST RELAX - Life truly is a little slower here. If crowds, beach contests and loud parties are your thing, you'll likely find better choices. If you want to slow down a little, relax and make some great memories, you're in the right place and we look forward to hearing from you.

Beds: 1 Queen, 2 doubles, 4 twins (including twin (xlong) daybed & twin trundle), 1 Queen Sleep Sofa.

Ordinarily, we try to keep the rental periods beginning and ending on Sundays, but exceptions are possible, depending on rental demand.

About The owner

A family owned property purchased by three siblings and their spouses whose families have been vacationing at Atlantic Watergate properties for many years, often for the same week renting multiple houses in the complex.

We feel fortunate to be the stewards of this unique and special beach home and to be able to share it with others.

The owner purchased this townhome in 2011

Why The owner chose Bethany Beach

In the summer of 2010 our family rented this house for a week. We have rented many beach houses over many summers, but for the entire week we were here I said to my wife, 'If we ever were to buy a vacation house, this would be the perfect place.' Amazingly it came on the market in the winter of 2011, and here we are.....

Although all of the Atlantic Watergate properties are terrific, this is a one of a kind end unit that not only sits directly on the beach but has the added benefit and views of the dunes of the Delaware State Seashore directly north. In our opinion this is an unbeatable location with some of the best views along the Atlantic.

Just beautiful...5/2013

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here the summer of 2013. My son was 5 1/2 years at the time and it was perfect. The back porch has steps that go directly to the beach...he would take his bucket and play at the bottom of the steps for hours. The house was very clean and the views were spectacular. Our vacations have not compared since our stay here. Someday I plan to visit again. The owners were wonderful.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best location imaginable for a relaxing beach vacation! Every level of the house gave us fabulous views of the ocean; mesmerizing! We fell asleep listening to the waves crashing! The house was clean and comfortable with a well stocked kitchen and plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas for our endless hours at the beach. The weather was ideal! We visited the quaint Bethany boardwalk and the much bigger Rehoboth boardwalk. Also took the Lewes-Cape May Ferry to Cape May NJ for a whale watching adventure; great day on the water! Fabulous restaraunts near by but we also cooked in at least two nights, the grill was a nice amenity to have. We loved staying at your home!! Thank you for helping to make fabulous vacation memories!!

Absolutely Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family will still be smiling years from now with memories of the most-perfect-weekend we just enjoyed at this magical beach house. The location is beyond extraordinary (we figured it must be the best in all of Bethany Beach) and every room is comfortable and charming. So close to the water you can be "at the beach", watching the dolphins, without even leaving your bed! The top floor feels like a beach tree fort, with the sound of the waves giving us the best sleep we'd had in a long time.

Everything you need for outdoors or indoors (except sheets and towels which are easy to rent) is already there -- clean and attractive.

Another plus is the tennis court just steps away.

We kept exclaiming: "Wow! How did we get so lucky to find this place!"

A great big thanks to the owner for making it possible.

No one wanted to leave your amazing home. I can't tell you how much we loved staying there. Everything about it was perfect! It was so beautiful.

We could not have been happier. It was comfortable, spacious, and completely meet all our needs. Thank you for a wonderful experience

Just do it!

  • 5 of 5

This is the place that you want to rent, if you want the perfect vacation! We would definitely go again. The location cannot be beat. We drove up to Rehoboth and down to Ocean City. The boardwalk at Bethany Beach is really nice too, but watch out for parking tickets:) The house has everything you will need and it is clean. The views can't be beat and the sand is beautiful. Of course, we had not a cloud in our sky and didn't run the A/C all week! We had plenty of room for nine people. The spiral stairs to the top floor were a challenge at first. You must be able to do serious stair climbing to get in. WOW, we had more than enough stuff to use on the beach, chairs and umbrellas. The whole place is really nice. It's homey and decorated like a beach house. The kitchen is very well equipped. It even had the cheese grater that we needed. We cooked in each day and every other night. The grocery stores are hard to find. They are in Rehoboth with four on the same block. We found unique eggs on the beach (gave them to the park ranger) and watched fishermen catch skate (it's a fish). Two of us were actually up at dawn on the right day and watched the dolphins swim by from OUR PORCH. It was fun that our neighbors were from the same state as us. It was worth the 10 hour drive. We felt very special to have the end unit on the building. We couldn't stop taking pictures of the view. This was a treat for our group...we blew our gs cookie money on a whopper final trip together. We talked of bringing our husbands next time, maybe?! ;)

You won't be disappointed. Just do it!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review. Just for clarification and future reference, please note that there is a brand new Harris Teeter supermarket less than 3 miles from the house on Fred Hudson Rd plus two other Hocker's Markets that are much closer than Rehoboth!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The proximity and easy access of the beautiful beach made this a perfect choice for our family. The interior accommodations were basic and just met our needs, but the many ocean views and sensation of really being at the beach every moment of our stay - that was what made it extraordinary. I will comment that the narrow winding stairs may not be the best for very young children, elderly, or anyone with physical limitations. Lugging our suitcases up and down those was no easy task, but otherwise they were no problem and actually sort of a fun element connecting the 3 stories. Our 6 and 8 year olds handled them fine. Thank you for letting us share your home, we will remember it fondly.
