Great house, close to beach

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd year we stayed at this place. We really enjoy its proximity to the beach as well as far enough away from the town center to where it is peaceful at night. Plenty of space for 4 couples and kid friendly. Central air has problems but Tim, owner was very responsive and had a tech out to fix within hours to fix. There is plenty of beach gear to where you can leave yours at home: chairs, umbrellas, sand toys, etc. great porch that has ocean views, great for mornings and hangouts at night. Only real complaint is the water pressure isn’t great in the showers. I plan on returning again.

Great beach house with close proximities to ocean

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, across street from beach access and a few blocks from town center. Great outdoor space with many decks and 1 with ocean views. Plenty of space for our family of 2 kids and 7 adults. I recommend staying here and plan on booking in the future

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this home was great. Right across the street from the beach entrance and close enough to town where we could easily walk to restaurants or shops. The home was equipped with several beach chairs and umbrellas which made for a easy time at the beach with our two families who stayed at the home. The owner was very easy to work with and very prompt and professional with our coordination for check in and access to the property and subsequently departure.

Do Not Rent From This Owner

  • 1 of 5

Although the location of the home is perfect for easy beach access, dealing with the owner was an absolutely terrible experience. Do not expect to receive your entire security deposit back as he likes to finance repairs of his home through your deposit. He blamed us for breaking blinds that were broken when we arrived and withheld a large sum of money from our security deposit to replace the blinds. He did this after we had generously taken time out of our vacation to notify him that a toilet and dishwasher needed service and had even coordinated two different service calls to repair these items. Needless to say, we will never rent from this owner again.

Owner's Response: We rarely have had to withhold deposit funds from our guests and when we do, it is under obvious damage situations like this. We also had to replace the dishwasher for a $1000--probably due to user error but we gave the renter the benefit of the doubt.

Perfect family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Having enjoyed our September beach vacation for the second year in this lovely home, I felt I should let others know of its attributes. Everything has been said by other reviewers: perfect location to beach and town; very clean and well maintained, nice décor, well equipped; comfortable layout; cordial owner. Our family of grandparents, adult children, and infants, toddlers and schoolagers as well as visitors of all ages found it accessible, fun and safe. We are planning to return in 2016.

Car: not necessary

Our house is just past the corner of 4th and N. Atlantic. It is across the street from the Ocean which provides easy access for all in the family. It is a short 3 block walk to reach the boardwalk of Bethany Beach, far enough away to avoid the crowds but close enough to enjoy the walk.

If shopping is your interest then all the outlet stores are located about 12 miles north in Rehoboth and Lewes. There is a 0% sales tax in Delaware whcih makes these stores even more enjoyable.

If on the other hand you really like the crowds you can always head south about 10 miles to Ocean City, MD.

Other Activities: kayaking, outlet shopping, miniature golf, nature trails, etc.
