Great place for a family to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay at this property. It was great to be able to bring our dog with us. The owners werevery receptive to allowing us to bring a young dog. The house was beautifully furnished, but welcoming. The kids with us enjoyed the pool and were able to ride their bikes. The neighbors were friendly, offering advice on resturants etc.

Great townhouse for our family's beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family have a great week at the Cripps' townhouse! The community was very quiet anf family friendly. We practically had the community pool to ourselves the entire week! Our boys were so happy to be able to bring their beloved chocolate lab buddy along on our vacation! The home was exactly as described and had everthing we needed to enjoy our week. We will definitely be coming back next year!

Lovely beach vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at the Cripps' townhouse. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood -- really enjoyed strolling around the pond and throwing the ball with the dogs. (A side note for dog owners -- the dog-friendly beach at Fenwick Island is not far away at all -- early morning romps in the waves with our pooches set the day for happy dogs and happy humans). We also liked the layout of the house. The downstairs master bedroom with access to the common area was perfect for the other couple in our group who brought their dog. The middle level was welcoming and comfortable for gathering together. Having 3 full baths (plus the half) is a real plus as well.

Patti could not have been more helpful and easy to work with as we made our plans.

Look forward to staying here again!

Sun-sational Beach Vacation in Bethany

  • 5 of 5

Had a fabulous 5 night stay with my mom and kids in this beautiful and conveniently located Bethany Beach townhouse. We were first time visitors to the area, always been a Jersey shore girl, but we loved everything about the area and fully intend to return next summer. Townhouse was spacious, clean, and felt like home. Kids loved the bunk bed room. Friendly neighbors and a pet friendly community for our small dog. Only disappointment was the house was not available to rent for an entire week, would have loved to spend more time in Bethany.

Beautiful home near Bethany Beach!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from this lovely property! Our stay was very comfortable. There are 3 bedrooms and 3 and 1/2 baths. The third bedroom is huge and can sleep at least 5 people!! We loved the furnishings and there were televisions in each room with tons of channels. There as a nice pool and we loved how close Bethany Beach is! Strongly recommend this property (they allow pets too!!)
