About Tony and Dawn Ivener

As thirty year residents of Northern Virginia, just west of Washington, D.C., we keep ourselves busy with the numerous activities and places of interest our hometown has to offer. But all the while we’ve kept our sites on South Bethany waiting for the perfect spot and Silver Cloud is it! With a family motto of “making memories” we can’t wait to experience ourselves and share with you the wonderful things this beach home has to offer.

Tony and Dawn Ivener purchased this house in 2002

Why Tony and Dawn Ivener chose Delaware

Silver Cloud is conveniently located on a quiet cul-de-sac just three houses off the beach and walking distance to shops and restaurants. It’s landscaping and backyard make it perfect for outdoor fun, games and cookouts. The screened in porch, deck and Captain’s Walk make for wonderful places to share meals, rest and relax. With sights of the ocean and the smells of fresh surfside air, you are sure to find yourself decompressing. Four bedrooms and baths, open living and dining areas and the upstairs desk with laptop make for a comfortable and spacious home.

You will never be lacking in things to do when you stay at Silver Cloud. South Bethany and the beach towns to the north and south offer all kinds of dining experiences, golfing, shopping, great biking, boardwalk fun, The Delaware State Park, and more!

Some of our favorite times to experience the beach are during the fall, winter and spring. Keep this peaceful home in mind for year round getaways.

What makes this house unique

Nestled at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, and with a usable back yard space, this home is warm and comfy for very young and old alike. The rooftop Captain's Walk is an added dimension for entertaining and relaxation, totally away from all pressures except the endless action of the ocean waves in the background.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I really enjoyed staying at Silver Cloud! The weather cooperated nicely and the house was very comfortable for all of us. Thanks.

Denver, CO

Folks from CO, PA, DC and GA loved our time at The Silver Cloud.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just as described and very much to our liking. Our last week of June turned out to be ideal for "the shore". Water was great, just enough sun and clouds, dramatic storm on arrival afternoon. Your recommended restaurants (The Blue Crab and Cottage Cafe) were exactly what we were looking for. Ocean City, MD outing to the Boardwalk was a hoot and much appreciated by the children. The house was clean and very well appointed. Thanks for everything.

Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this house not knowing who, if anyone, was going to join us. Turns out that some of my family joined us, and what a wonderful time we had. We were all pleased with the house. It was very cleaned. and so well stocked. Even though it was the end of March and the temp. did not reach 65* there was plenty to do. We look forward to future visits. hopefully when the thermometer pushes 95*. Thank you for a wonderful time. One that we will always remember

Owner's Response: We're so glad you all had a great time. We strive to maintain the family and fun atmosphere associated with the Bethany Beach area even in the off season. There is always way more to see and do than is accomplished in a weekend so we encourage all to stay longer and enjoy the sun, surf, shops, etc. that abound in the area. Here's hoping we see you in the future. - Marcia and Steve
