A suburb house in a wonderful setting!

  • 5 of 5

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!

One of the best we've rented

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location and setup for our group of 4 adults and 5 children. The kids were able to play tennis, skateboard, bike and go crabbing, all within view of the house. We loved the decks and screened-in porch for hanging out and eating dinner every evening. It was so easy and pleasant to prepare and enjoy meals at the house, we never went to a restaurant! We enjoyed canoeing and paddleboarding in the canal, biking on the canal trail, running/biking to the beach, and using the free parking passes to take our cars and gear for days at the beach (which was beautiful and so much fun for body boarding!). We also drove to Cape Henlopen State Park where we biked, swam, paddled and visited the nature center. This clean, well-stocked house was in a perfect location to enjoy all that Bethany Beach and the surrounding areas offer, while still being in a quiet and peaceful location. Mary Jane was very responsive with answering questions ahead of time and provided great suggestions for our vacation. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer to do more exploring!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review! We are so happy that your family loved the house and location as much as we do! In addition to canoeing and kayaking, we too have learned how to paddle board and have enjoyed paddle boarding in our backyard canal all the way to the Salt Pond. We hope that you have created wonderful "Bethany Beach family memories" and that you, like many of our other guests, visit again soon!

FANTASTIC!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved so many things about this house!! It is only 1.5 miles from the boardwalk, a great walk in the early morning. The canoe and kayak provide a great way activity and for our family to enjoy our "family bird", the blue heron!! We used all of the decks, there is always a place for shade and the screened in porch with the fan was always comfortable. There was plenty of room for our children and spouse/friend. The parking was plentiful. The tennis courts were used. The parking passes for the beach were wonderful!!! We enjoyed every opportunity this home had to offer!!! We had a fantastic week with the family at a charming home in the terrific town of Bethany! :)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to post such a wonderful review of our house in Bethany Beach. I agree with you that our location is perfect! We love spending time on all three of our decks as well as the screened in porch. Even when it is raining, it is so great to have the screened in porch as an option to enjoy the outdoors. We are glad that you enjoyed the boats, tennis courts and parking permits! And, how can you beat a walk to the beach to start your day? Thanks! Mary Jane & Joe

short spring break get-away

  • 5 of 5

We had great, albeit short, spring break stay at the house. We did lots of kayaking on the canal, and played lots of tennis. We also enjoyed playing chess. Neighborhood is quiet. We enjoyed walks and runs around the lake and to/from town/beach. Nice house. Thank you!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay! The tennis courts, lake and the availability of a tandem kayak and canoe for our guests to enjoy and launch from our back yard canal certainly makes this Bethany house a Top Notch destination! Thanks for taking the time to post your comments for others to read!

Spacious Home in Quiet Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 10 thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Bethany Beach and to this wonderful home. The owners were extremely knowledgeable and helpful during the booking process and left several personal touches to make us feel right at home.

The neighborhood is extremely quiet - the four children were safely able to play in front and back of home and ride their scooters along the small loop of the neighborhood. We took advantage of both the kayak and canoe numerous times and enjoyed seeing both marine life and wildlife on our trips. The other neighbors were extremely friendly as you traveled to the larger lake by water. We played some tennis too and it was helpful to have all the equipment in the house to do so!

The home had all the essentials and we found the layout to be very accommodating to our group of 3 couples and 4 children - the kids bunked in the "bunk bed" room and had a ball. The screened in porch was of huge benefit as many days during our stay reached in the 90s and we found it comfortable to be outside but out of the blazing sun.

The house was clean and contained everything we needed to carry out our mission - rest and relaxation!

The trolley ride was both convenient and fun and we utilized it constantly. We can't say enough about the Bethany area, the beaches, restaurants, and people.

We will certainly make a return trip!

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a wonderful review. Our goal is that our guests enjoy Bethany and all of the house amenities as much as our family does. It sure sounds as though we accomplished our goal with you and your family! We love hearing that you enjoyed using the kayak, canoe and tennis courts. We agree that the trolley is fantastic and it is remarkable that such a fun and convenient ride is only 25 cents! We also love the house location in that is so close to everything but yet on such a quiet circle with plenty of grass and open space for the kids to play or for the adults to toss a football. The tennis courts are great for all levels of tennis! We are happy that you will become a regular visitor to Bethany and to our beach house.

Great house in a quiet beach neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a quiet neighborhood just 1 mile from the beach. It is nicely decorated and has enough room for a large family to spread out. We loved the many decks and the private, shady back yard with a path leading to a canal. We really enjoyed exploring the canal in the 2 person kayak...an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours. The owner answered my emails within a few hours and her friendly manner and helpful suggestions re: the Bethany beach area (including restaurant suggestions) were much appreciated. Since we were traveling with our sons, their wives and our 4 week old granddaughter we didn't take advantage of the trolley that stops right outside the house but we were happy to have the parking permits provided which got us within a quick walk to the beach! The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots, pans, utensils, etc.---most anything we looked for...we found. Overall, we highly recommend this house!
