Pool and Tennis: Few communities in Bethany Beach offer pool and tennis. Tennis is available 1 mile away in Ocean View at Bethany Tennis Club.

There is a water park in Rehoboth Beach also (12 miles away)

Rental includes 2 beach parking passes that permit free, unlimited parking on any residential street in Bethany Beach, including the blocks by the beach. They cannot be used at meters. The Town Trolley passes through our neighborhood twice/hour and costs 25 cents.

My family has vacationed in Bethany Beach for over 40 years. Having trouble finding a suitable rental as our family grew, we decided to build a home that could accommodate multiple generations and families. We've just added a 5th generation to enjoy our beloved vacation destination. Discover Bethany Beach with your loved ones this year!
Cynthia Moses purchased this house in 1994
Parents have their own bedrooms and kids hang out in the bunk room. Grandparents will enjoy staying in the main level master suite. We love relaxing on the screened porch which seems to always enjoy a delightful cross-breeze. This house is also perfect for groups of friends and families vacationing together. I keep it available year-round for those fall and winter get-aways as well as for family holiday gatherings. You'll enjoy comfortable living space, both inside and out.
Affordable homes that can accommodate large groups are rare in Bethany Beach. We're located inside the town limits, so you have free beach parking passes for 2 cars and use of the Town Trolley. Our home offers on-demand water heaters, so even the last person to shower gets hot water! Being in town was the most important factor for us when we bought this lot to build our family beach home.
We had an amazing time at camp Terrapin. The house was very clean and all of us enjoyed it greatly. The rooms and bathrooms were very spacious and plenty for our guests. Everyone loved it and we appreciated the beach house.
Great house with plenty of space. Comfortably accommodated our party of 10. No issues whatsoever. Will rent this house again for our annual Bethany golf trip. Thanks for everything Cindy!
Beautiful home with great outdoor space. Easily accommadated our large group comfortably. Easy access to beach and downtown yet located in quiet neighborhood. Owner was quick to respond and wonderful to work with. Would highly recommend.
Took my bible study here for the weekend at the beach. Ended up raining most of the weekend, but then we got to enjoy the screened deck and hear the rain all afternoon. Plus the house was big enough that we all had plenty of space! Would highly recommend it!
Overall, we enjoyed our stay. We chose this house based on size/sleeping accommodations for our party of 10. And the fact that it was available.
The house was definitely roomy enough for our group. LARGE dining table fit everyone. Plenty of beds and bathrooms.
The distance from the beach was manageable for our group (pre-/teens and adults). Might not be as good for younger children. We took every mode of transportation to get to the beach - by foot, bike, trolley, car. Parking passes were helpful!
Other good things about the rental:
Side screened in porch
Lots of porch/deck space
Tankless hot water system - great for a large group showering at similar times
Lots of dishes/cups/utensils
Keyless entry system
Less good things:
Plastic deck furniture - some chairs are broken
Not enough large pots, not much in the way of bakeware
Small things need TLC - we were changing lightbulbs, oiling squeaky doors
Upstairs carpeting is worn/stained
Downstairs bathroom is shared with master bedroom
Not much yard space
Fridge is on the small side for large groups. An additional dorm-size fridge for beverages would be helpful
Linens not included
All 8 of us thoroughly enjoyed staying at Camp Terrapin! The bedrooms and bathrooms were large and very nice. Plenty of space in the open floor plan for group gathering!
Eight of us spent a little more than a week in this spacious and bright home in Bethany Beach that provided a terrific home base for a wonderful week in Bethany Beach that included lots of beach time, trips to Ocean City's boardwalk and amusements, and (of course) mini-golf.
The house's layout was great for our group. There was a master suite with a king-size bed for each set of parents, and a spacious bunk room for the kids. With four full bathrooms, there was never a wait - and always an ample supply of hot water. The kitchen was well-equipped and well-maintained.
The owner was helpful and responsive.
Extra bonus: We didn't realize how great it would be that the house comes with beach parking passes that allowed us to park on residential streets near beach access points. With four small children between us, we found it much more convenient to drive to the beach each day - and we always found parking within a block of the beach.
If you are looking for a lovely home in Bethany for a large group (we were eight people, but the house could have easily accommodated twice our number), this house is definitely it.
Bethany Beach has a small town atmosphere with lifeguards on the beach, a boardwalk, charming shops, restaurants ranging from fast food to casual to fine dining, and an active community center.

Bethany Beach has been my family's summer vacation destination for more than 40 years and is loved by 4 generations of my family.
