About Joel A Fischman

We are two Federal civil servants, one now retired, living in Washington, DC. This vacation home is our getaway any time of the year.

Joel A Fischman purchased this house in 1994

Why Joel A Fischman chose Delaware

If you want to be near a large, private guarded beach, in a private quiet community, this is for you. This property is four houses from the ocean beach, a quick walk. Also right at hand is a tennis court and playground. There is a volleyball court right on the premises.

If you like to vacation by the ocean, this is it!

Fabulous family beach house

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect beach house for families who want to be steps away from the ocean, yet also have the benefit of a "private" life guarded beach. The home is comfortable, spacious and welcoming, with a large well-equipped kitchen. Lots of windows provide much natural lighting. The porches offer additional areas for relaxing and teenagers can enjoy their own space in the loft bedroom and lounge area or in the adjacent annex apartment with its own bathroom.

The house is located in a quiet, private community about 2 miles from downtown Bethany. The community has its own playground and tennis court.

The friendly owner provided excellent personalized service including recommendations of nearby restaurants and shopping. Everything about our stay was wonderful.

We highly recommend this family friendly beach property and hope to return to it in the near future!

Nice property, location and accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Nice quiet community and clean, well maintained property. Owner is very responsive to and eager to please.

There are 10 of us and the space if more than adequate for sleeping, without having to use pull outs in the living area. Nice that there is a table large enough to seat everyone for family dining. Children enjoy the yard with room to run around and play and also their own space on the top level. Short walk with no parking or highway to deal with to a nice, uncrowded, guarded beach. Short drive to town, grocery store and several area restaurants.

This was our third summer renting this property and will do so again next year so I guess we must like it!

Great, spacious home for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home works very well for a family. There is plenty of sleeping space without having to utilize living room pull-out. Dining table seats 10 easily with additional seating at breakfast bar. Accommodated our family of 10 easily. House is well maintained with owners who are concerned with renter's needs.

Reasonably short walk to the beach without having to deal with crossing busy roads. Nice, uncrowded beach with a lifeguard.

Will return!

Spacious Comfortable Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was very suitable for our family of 10. Children enjoyed having their own sleeping loft. Could easily sleep more people. Nice size, well stocked kitchen with plenty of seating. Good open space living area where we did not feel on top of each other. Particularly enjoyed the uncrowded beach.

Owner was very communicative and very thorough in providing information to ensure that our stay went smoothly.

Quiet and spacious beach home

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for such a peaceful and beautiful place to vacation. We appreciated being so close to the beach. The kids loved riding their bikes on the private street. We could hear the waves and see the meteor shower from the roof deck.
