About Debbie Bosse

Hello! We are Ted and Debbie from Ellicott City, Maryland. We LOVE the beach and we also are classic car owners. We have three college-age children who also live in Maryland and visit us at the beach as much as possible. We are retired Realtors and builders and currently own an insurance brokerage. We hope to retire to our home in Bethany Beach. Until then, we hope you enjoy are home as much as we do.

Debbie Bosse purchased this house in 2005

Why Debbie Bosse chose Delaware

We have always loved the ocean and the quiet resort of Bethany Beach. We chose this location because of easy access to Route 1 (Coastal Highway) without having to travel congested roads to get to the beach. The tranquility of our screened porch on the lake is our most popular feature. There is a grocery store within walking distance; seafood carryout and restaurants adjacent to our gated community. Bethany Lakes is 15 minutes to Rehoboth Beach and Ocean City.

What makes this house unique

The benefits of our location include non-congested drives to Fenwick, Ocean City, and Rehoboth Beach. The designer outlet stores are a 15 minute drive from Bethany. Our guests LOVE our screened porch with a table for crabs and sofa for an afternoon nap. There is a view of the lake and fountains from every window in the back of the house, including the loft with pool table. We have badminton/volleyball and crochet games for our lawn. Lots of yard space for kids to run and play. The lake is stocked with bass on a catch and release basis, and we have fishing rods for your use. Our community is gated, providing safety for guests and their families. There are three master suites in our home.

Bethany Beach house

  • 4 of 5

This is the second year we have rented this nice, large beach house, and we are renting it again next year. We have liked that it is a large home in a safe, gated community with a large community pool and gym. There is a convient boardwalk over the lake to the pool, and a large grocery store across the street. The house has a nice screen-in porch, several eating areas, a pool table, and many televisions.

Short stay to get away with friends

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed for three nights with some friends. Our kids enjoyed playing in the openness of the house. There was plenty of space to spread out and do a variety of activities in the many rooms of the house. We very much enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

Staying at this property is the essence of a relaxing and perfect vacation. The rooms are spacious and have everything you need. There is an awesome pool table upstairs and the screened in porch is the perfect place to share a family dinner and watch the sunset. It's the a combination of a warm and welcoming environment. When you are in the home you will be indulged in relaxation and if you are looking for some excitement the restaurants and nightlife area is a quick 3 minutes away. I personally suggest 14 Global which has foods and drinks from all over the world. The beach is a hop, skip and a jump away and plenty of things to do along the way. You will not be disappointed if you stay here and will count the days until you can go back!

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family spent Thanksgiving weekend in this lovely home (3 couples, 4 kids). The house is clean and in great condition, the kitchen had all the supplies we needed, and the view of the lake was amazing! We loved sitting on the back porch while the kids played football in the yard - I can imagine how wonderful it must be to sit on the screened-in porch with the fan going in the summer. Thank you Debbie and Ted for an easy rental process and for sharing your home with us!

Absolutely Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This home is exquisite. The house was incredibly clean and open! the numerous sections to the home were great for games, puzzles, and working on our laptop. The master bedroom's dual shower room was very nice and the soaking tub was amazing! There are a number of bedrooms upstairs and the pool room overlooks the family room- this home has such an open and inviting feel to it, I highly recommend staying here!
