About the property

6 bedrooms, 5 baths, 2 living room areas, sleeps 14, lifeguards on beach, pool

Large, fabulously appointed multi-million dollar home in the private, gated North Bethany community of the Preserve. Home is 50 yards from your own private beach. The house features great ocean views. The house has 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. There are 7 expansive decks and a spacious 'tower room/den' as a special get-away area for the kids or adults. The house sleeps 14 with 2 kings, 2 queens, 4 twins and a queen sleeper sofa on the 3rd floor. The house has a screened porch, wi-fi, four TVs, DVD and VCR players, and stereo. The house is 3 houses from the beach and has a deck off almost every bedroom and living area. The house is ideal for large family gatherings or multiple families vacationing together. There are 3 master bedrooms with their own private baths. Two additional twin rooms are connected to hallway bathrooms. These twin rooms can be turned into master bedrooms by locking the bathroom hallway doors, so there can be a total of 5 master bedrooms. The house is ideal for large family gatherings. The Preserve is the most sought-after community in North Bethany and is the only community east of the highway that has its own pool and tennis court. The private beach is large, expansive and never crowded. You will be thrilled with both the community and the house. (I do have an almost identical house in the same community and feel free to contact me if the week you are interested in is not available).

Very delighted with the rental home

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely delighted with this vacation rental. The home has 6 large bedrooms along with a loft comfortably accommodating our extended family of 8 adults and 6 children. The kitchen, dining room and family room are located on the same floor in an open concept that all occupants found enjoyable. There is also a large screen-in porch with table and chairs where we consumed steamed crabs. The home was very clean and comfortable and we look forward to renewing our rental during the same period next year.

Perfect Home for a Large Group

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to this home for many years. It is perfect for our 3 families with lots of indoor and outdoor space for all of us. The upstairs bonus room is especially nice because the kids have their room and the adults have their area. The house is a one minute walk to the beach and the beach is private, expansive and never crowded. The pool and tennis court are conveniently right near the house. We will keep coming back and highly recommend this property. You will not be dissapointed.

Owner's Response: We designed the house so that it would comfortably fit our large family and large groups. We love coming to the house and the Preserve for our summer vacations and are happy that others feel the same way.

A Good Location!

  • 4 of 5

This house is in a great location! Although it is not the same house as pictured with this listing - but another home the owner rents (he has a couple of homes) - it was a nice house. The owner has said that it will undergo renovation this winter which will make it an even better house with a great location!

Owner's Response: We have 2 essentially identical houses in the same community. One of the homes will be extensively renovated this Winter. The photos on the site are of the house that will be renovated and these photos will be updated after the renovation is completed. Both homes are equally fabulous.

Clean and Spacious

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation home with wonderful amenities! Very clean and plenty of room for the entire family. Unfortunately, we had several days of rainy weather and 4 children under the age of 14. The house was so spacious there was room for everyone to be comfortable. The owner was very attentive and provided information that made our stay enjoyable. The beach and pool are steps away. A great place to stay!

This house was perfect for our family. Clean and well appointed, ready to relax upon arrival. Plenty of space for everyone to enjoy. Spectacular location just steps to the beach.

The Owner provided us with great restaurant, shopping/entertainment recommendations, all within a short drive from this home. The Owner was a pleasure to rent from, we highly recommend this property.

Excellent Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

There are only good words for this place. The description seems to be too good to be true, but the house is as beautiful as described. Inquiries and correspondences were fast and easy. We really loved everything about this place- the house, the beach, location of the house to the beach... Would highly recommend staying here. You won't be disappointed.

About Vic Omelchenko

Our family lives in the Washington, DC area and my wife and I met at the beach. We love the beach and try to get here as often as we can. We have a son and daughter and a Golden Retriever that my wife named Dewey, after Dewey Beach, where we shared beach houses with friends when we first got out of school.

Vic Omelchenko purchased this house in 1994

Why Vic Omelchenko chose Bethany Beach

We used to rent houses in the Outer Banks for many years and designed our beach home incorporating our favorite aspects of these houses. We would probably still be going to the Outer Banks, if we had not discovered North Bethany. North Bethany has large homes on piles, with large lots and private beaches, very similar to the Outer Banks, but about 3 hours closer and with many more amenities. We designed the house so that it would comfortably fit multiple families/groups, with many get-away areas for both the kids and adults. We also wanted a large, inviting great room area as well as a house with multiple master suites so that all could have privacy when they wanted it.

What makes this house unique

If you like to have privacy on the beach, where your closest neighbor is 20 feet away (even in July and August), the Preserve is for you. Bethany Beach is a short 2 miles from the house and you can bike or jog there if you like. The house is a short walk to the pool, tennis court or the beach. You will never need to hunt for a parking space when you want to go to the beach. There are many, many restaurants, outlet stores, movie theatres, game parks, golf courses, etc. close to the house. Splurge and treat yourself to a wonderful house and beach community.


Car: recommended

The house is close to a number of large towns so there are plenty of movie theaters, miniature golf, arcades for the kids, many great restaurants, hundreds of outlet stores and plenty to keep one busy when you are not at the beach.
