Delaware Townhome Rental Photos and Description

four bedroom, three bath, sleeps ten

Great vacation home with four bedrooms and three baths located within the Tower Shores community. Our large and gorgeous beach is just a few feet from the front door and is adjacent to the Delaware State Park. We are located just one mile south of the Indian River inlet and three miles north of Bethany. The master bedroom has a king bed and a private deck with views of both the ocean and bay. The bedroom on the main level also has its own deck overlooking the tennis court and playground. The ground floor bedroom has its own bath and kitchenette and can serve as a separate efficiency. There is a patio with a barbecue on the ground level. A spacious gazebo is adjacent to the tennis courts perfect for holding a party or for a special barbecue dinner. The house comfortably sleeps ten. Cable TV, CD & DVD are included. Internet direct cable in our home.

Was perfect home for vacation getaway. Plenty of room for our 6 children. Spent all our time at house and on beach - walking to it from house. Private beach was perfect and playground was fun evenings for kids. I spent much time in that house as a child and the updates were perfect. Price was great too.

Excellent beach house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this property. There were 10 of us all together, including two young children. The close proximity to the beach was fabulous given all the gear that goes along with bringing small kids to the beach!

The property was very clean and well-maintained. Ed provided us with great service, checking in by phone after we arrived to ensure everything was to our liking. I would definitely recommend this property to others.

The definition of excellence

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't have asked for a better location, well-kept accommodation, or kind landlord.

Highly recommended

Nice house but rude owner

  • 3 of 5

We had a very good time in Ed's property.The house is very nice spacious & very well planned.We could've accommodated 1 more family. Its mins away from the beach. However there are quite a few reasons that I am giving this a rating 3.Following are a few: 1.My biggest issue was with the attitude of the owner towards a prospective and then eventually the customer/tenant of the rental property.

- You have to keep following up with him for him to move forward with the deal. I had to send him 5 reminders over two weeks to get the contract mailed to me.

- We were going with 4 small kids and wanted to make sure that I have all the information before hand and as a result I sent him a few emails with questions (none of the items except one were mentioned in the property details). The response that I got from Ed said "I have handled eighteen emails from you for a simple 3 day rental. This is the last one I will respond to Swati." Highlighted in red. But the 18 emails that Ed had to handle were not questions. I was following up on whether he received the check that I had sent to him or not, I was asking multiple times on when I will receive the agreement (I sent 5 emails just to get the agreement it took him 17 days after all these emails to send me the contract) , me asking what the check-in and check-out time were as these were not mentioned either in the details.

So incase you are used to prompt responses from owners or are used to curteous and polite owners you are in for a rude awakening. Please be prepared to get no or rude responses from the owners.

My question was would the attitude have been any different if I had rented the place for a week or longer? Was it too much to expect polite responses to my questions? Especially when I had explained to him that I was travelling with kids one of them was 5 month old.

2. Second problem was lack of maintenance of the appliances in the house. The handle to open the microwave on the main kitchen was broken. The Lint remover in the dryer was completely torn. The washer and dryers are old.

3. Another issue was the awkward positioning of switches. We had to do multiple rounds to find out what switch operates what in the house.

But point 2 and 3 are minor compared to point 1.I will never come back to this house because of the way the owner treated me and the lack of basic communication decency. He chose to be rude because I was renting his house only for 3 nights.So behavior is dependent upon the money spent.
