My actual score would be 4½stars. Our stay at 2 Connor Lane was wonderful. Upon arrival we were able to park and unload inside the expansive 3 car garage. This was especially handy when we went to leave and it was raining outside we were able to load the cars inside the garage. The three separate living rooms were nice so the children were able to play in one room while the adults could converse and or read without being disturbed. The large dining room table was very helpful. With seating for 8 adults we were able to squeeze in ten with the children. The bed room layout was great for the families. Two nice big masters with full baths. A separated two bed rooms with their own bath worked wonderful for the family of five and a segregated bed room with a half bath fit nicely for the mother-in-law so as not to be unduly disturbed by the children.
Closet space was vastly more than we needed. On vacation we typically use more drawer space which in this case is minimal but adequate. One draw back that we found was the lack of kitchen storage. We typically carry a lot of food for cooking meals, as we have a chef in the family, and cabinet space is severely limited but likely could be better just by reorganizing a few thing. (that is the reason for the 4½ stars) Having 3 microwaves seemed a bit much but the 2 ovens came in very handy. The large island in the kitchen (stools for 6)was nice for snacking and conversation during meal preparation. One minor concern we ran into is on the deck the newels were slightly further apart than modern standards so the children could not be left outside without direct supervision even with a gate at the steps. Overall this is a very nice house. If we decide to visit Bethany Beach again we will definitely consider renting here again.
The house was great! The positives far outweighed the negatives and didn’t detract from our enjoyment of the facility.
The only shortcomings were: the wifi access (you sometimes had to unplug and plug in again the router), the dining room area (a little dark), some walls allowed for noise level to penetrate too easily (especially the bedroom off the kitchen), and the double sized mattresses also sagged in the middle.
The many positives include:
Easy access: 5 min walk to beach and boardwalk (yes, you had to walk along the highway, but only a very short distance and a very wide shoulder for walking space), right off main highway so easy to find, easy drive to convenience stores (grocery, gas, pharmacy).
Spacious: several areas/rooms so groups could do various activities without disturbing each other, plenty of room for everyone, garage big enough to store beach gear as well as all our vehicles, plenty of seating for everyone to lounge and relax, kitchen had plenty of prep room.
House amenities/appliances: kitchen had all the utensils we needed, house and kitchen appliances all in good working order, loved the outdoor shower…great water pressure
Rental agent was wonderful to work with answering all questions in a timely manner.
Our family spanned 3 generations and we had plenty of room to spread out in the 3 sitting areas and 5 bedrooms. We even had a small table in another area to play board games. We found the kitchen to be well stocked with everything we might have wanted for the week plus plenty of dishes for meals. There was a lovely view of the pond from the deck and there was seating down by the pond for relaxing. Walking to the beach and downtown was a big plus.
The house was great. Excellent location and the parking permit made it easy to drop off beach equipment. The online pictures do not accurately represent the house, it is much nicer in person. Lastly, Cathy was very friendly and easy to get ahold of.
Clean, lots of room for kids and grandkids, easy walk to beach and town, well equipped, nice backyard for grilling.
I was told that there was a ton of space in this house, plenty to get together as a large group and talk and eat - but lots of different places to go to get some more private time. Absolutely true! Den/sitting/tv room, large eat-in kitchen, dining room, breakfast room, deck, living room (huge!) and family room - very large with a large screen tv. We had 3 families staying at the house and we never got in each other's way. Put the teenagers in the wing with 2 bedrooms and bath, and the adults split up into the two masters with their own baths and the 5th bedroom with half bath. Close to the beach and easy to get to, really close to the downtown. In fact, a REALLY nice restaurant, Sedona, is a half block away, plus a really great coffee shop is also a half block. Bethany Blues restaurant with the best ribs ever is a block away and a bank and lots of ice cream and great family and fine dining in the downtown (2 blocks). The little kids loved the playground that is just across the street! Plenty of parking, including several garages are available.
Bethany Beach is a quiet, family beach resort on the Atlantic Ocean in southern Delaware. it is an oasis for those seeking a small town, low stress beach vacation away from the commercialization of larger nearby resorts like the Jersey shore, Ocean City MD and Rehoboth Beach DE, while still providing excellent dining and entertainment options within a short distance. Many world class golf courses are available nearby, as well as boating, water sports, deep sea, bay and surf fishing, waverunners, parasailing and much more. Bethany Beach truly offers it all, in a beautiful, family-friendly atmosphere.
The home is located east of Del. Route 1, so there is no highway to cross to walk to the beach. It is located on a private lane directly on the Bethany Loop Canal, a calm tidal body of water that attracts herons, ducks, geese, and other wildlife. The closest cross streets are Central Boulevard to the south, and Second Street to the north. The beach is 2 blocks to the east.
