                                                            A suburb house in a wonderful setting!


                                                            Our stay in Bethany Beach was one of the best family holidays we've had. Much of the credit for this special vacation has to go to this terrific house.

                                                            The floor plan provided privacy and space -- even with 10 people staying under one roof! The grandkids, two eleven year olds and an eight year old, were content with riding their bikes around the safe neighborhood, playing games in the evening on the wonderful decks, hopping the trolley to the beach, and exploring the area with us in the canoe. The home is also great for great-grandparents, too! My 82 year old mom was very comfortable in the downstairs bedroom with full bath.

                                                            One could not ask for nicer owners -- very accessible for questions, etc. We would highly recommend this home for making wonderful family memories! This place truly has something for everyone!

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            Thank you so much for your kind words! We so appreciate when our guests take the time to personally post an e-mail about their experience at our home in Bethany. All of our reviews are directly posted by our guests and are not "guestbook reviews" which are posted by the owners themselves. We look forward to your return trip!

                                                            Awesome experience!

                                                            Sheri A.

                                                            The home was terrific and suited our needs. The owner was very responsive and a joy with whom to work. Bethany beach was fantastic. Even though we are in the "off season," the weather was gorgeous.

                                                            We truly enjoyed our family vacation at the Lake Bethany beach home. This was perfect for our family of 7 and so close to the beach with the added bonus of being on the canal with kayak and canoe. The kids loved taking the trolley to the beach and boardwalk and as parents, we felt assured that they were in a safe town. Excellent happy hour at mangoes, stuffed grouper at the salted rim, yummy donuts at the fractured prune, and great outle shopping in Rehoboth on tropical storm day. Thanks!

                                                            Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We are thrilled that you and your family had a great time and were able to enjoy all that our house and Bethany has to offer. I think your quote of "incredible beach home with great amenities and peaceful location close to the ocean" pretty much sums it up! We are one of a hand full of houses located in the town of Bethany Beach that backs to a canal for crabbing and launching our boats and is also so close to the beach and boardwalk. Receiving your e-mail, written minutes after you checked out, letting me know what a great time your family had and your wishes to return next year made me smile! You may want to try the happy hour at Bethany Blues and the Salted Rim too on your next visit!

                                                            Great location!!

                                                            Loved the canal front location with canoe, kayak, and accessories provided. House accommodated my family including 3 adult children. Tennis court in front is very nice and provided a great space for early morning yoga sessions. The house has a grill on the deck, plenty of beach chairs, and a screened porch for refuge from evening insects.

                                                            The home's interior could benefit from a good cleaning to remove dirt and grime from walls and doors. The blankets on the bunk beds were stained and crusty. Overall, the interior needs a thorough cleaning and updating (adorments, embellishments, and wall art everywhere!) The kitchen was well stocked with cookware and utensils but again many of the kitchen items need a good cleaning before being stowed away. The toaster needs replacing as it burns no matter the setting. The smoke alarm works fine.

                                                            With a little attention, this home could be a wonderful retreat.

                                                            We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and loved the location, canoe, kayak, tennis courts, grill, deck, beach chairs and screened in porch. We have always gotten rave reviews on the cleanliness of our house and have used the same cleaning service for 10 years. We have never gotten any previous negative comments. Furthermore, they guarantee their work. I wish you had let me know about the fingerprints on the walls/doors as the situation could have been corrected. Regardless, we are happy that you enjoyed your stay.

                                                            great vacation home!
