South Bethany Harbor Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Enjoy the views of the canals from this adorable pet friendly townhome, located just 1.5 short blocks from the white sands of South Bethany's guarded Beach (Memorial Day - Labor Day).

This beachy townhome features 2 bedrooms and a full bath upstairs with a sleeping porch off one of the bedrooms (bedroom has two twin size beds which can be converted to a king, double size futon, TV and DVD player, sleeping porch has a queen size sofa bed) and a deck with a retractable awning overlooking the canals off the other bedroom (this bedroom has a queen size bed, TV and DVD player). A new heat pump provides central air conditioning in the hot months and heat in the cooler months.

Downstairs features a fully equipped kitchen with newer appliances (refrigerator with ice maker, flat top stove, dishwasher, microwave) and two porches, one in front and one in back overlooking the canals. There is a ground level deck with a picnic table. Also downstairs is a living room with comfortable furnishings including a queen size sofa bed, color TV, DVD player and stereo. There is a half bath downstairs and a washer/dryer. An outside shower is available to rinse off the sand after a fun day on the beach.

High speed wireless internet, and digital TV service is available at no charge for your convenience and enjoyment.

This unique townhome is located a block away from a shopping area which includes family style dining, shops, a pizza restaurant, a gourmet cafe, etc. Because it is on the water you can bring your boat (or rent one) and enjoy beautiful sunset cruises, or quiet excursions into the National Wildlife Park for viewings of eagles, blue heron, etc. You can catch fish and crabs (a license may be required for adults) right off the side of the bulkhead (please don't use the docks, they are private property, not part of this Townhome) & enjoy family fun in the large yard.

The townhome is located halfway between Rehoboth Beach, DE and Ocean City, MD. This general area offers tax-free outlet shopping, water sports, mini golf, championship golf, fine dining, boardwalks, etc. all within walking distance to a half hour or less drive from the townhome.

About The Owner

Hi- Thanks for your interest in my Townhome By The Sea. I have been blessed with living in the Delaware Resort area for over 10 years now and am very happy to be able to share it with those who want to vacation in this area. My dogs have always been a very big part of my life and that's why I chose to make my property dog friendly, because I know how hard it is to find a nice rental which allows dogs. I think most dog owners are responsible and will respect my property as they do their own so I am happy to open it to them. I hope anyone who rents my Townhome By The Sea will have such a wonderful time that they'll come back soon!

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2005

Why The Owner chose South Bethany Beach

The Delaware resort area is such a wonderful area - the temperatures are moderate, the scenery is beautiful, the people are friendly, and the ocean... what to say about the ocean... Not only do we have the ocean, we have the bay and all the inland waterways feeding into the bay, one of which is in the backyard of the Townhome By The Sea. Walk one and a half blocks and your feet are in the white sands of the Atlantic Ocean beach at South Bethany, or take your boat or kayak out into the inland waterways to see the wildlife such as the eagles and blue heron and stay for a gorgeous sunset. Why wouldn't you buy a vacation rental in this area? By the way, if you want to buy a vacation rental in this area, I can help you with that as well! I'd be happy to share with you the enjoyment of owning propety in this area

What makes this townhome unique

In South Bethany you are half way between Ocean City Maryland and Rehoboth Beach Delaware - both of which have big boardwalks with rides, etc. Rehoboth also has the tax free outlets. Bethany Beach has it's own boardwalk which is very kid friendly and safe. There is live entertainment on the bandstand at night in the summer, lots of good food, and fun in a very close proximity to our Townhome By The Sea. Within a one block walk to out Townhome By The Sea is a small shopping center which has a gourmet market & coffee shop (with the best chicken salad sandwich you've ever had - order it on a french baguette), a great family pizza restaurant with video games, a gift shop, a Japanese sushi restaurant, a bait and tackle shop, etc. Where else can you get such diversity & fun so close?

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I indulged ourselves with a week at this townhome for our 30th anniversary and had a wonderful vacation. We chose this particular place because of its proximity to the beach and its distance from Ocean City. Although we enjoyed the easy walk to the beach everyday, allowing for lots of time in the surf and strolls at sunset, we ended up being enchanted with the canals behind the home. We rented a kayak, explored the nearby wildlife refuge, and were visited daily by all sorts of wildlife, including a pair of ducks who quacked outside the door to let us know it was time to feed them. Our landlady, Rose, was very accessible, instantly responding to any and all questions/problems (Thanks, Rose!). We had easy access to restaurants, etc but also appreciated the quiet and secluded nature of South Bethany, where everyone is friendly and dogs are loved. We hope to return next year and recommend this clean and comfortable townhome to any one looking for a quiet, family vacation.

I should of wrote this review sooner. My husband, parents, and our dogs all stayed at this wonderful house for a week in June of 2014. We all had a wonderful time. Upon first getting to the house a few neighbors who live in the other units greeted us, they could not of been more friendly and welcoming. Some had dogs of their own and had no issue with our dogs interacting with theirs. What I really enjoyed about the place, was how quite it is. My hubby and I are always so busy in everyday life we truly like quite vacations, as do my parents. The week we were down was actually Senior week and a house across the way was rented out to teens. Who by our surprise were fully respectful, sure they were a little loud here and there but you could only hear them when you were outside, but your only young once and I can appreciate them having fun.

The house is right near a little canal, so there is a quite a bit of wildlife, we were able to feed the ducks a few times. And take in the beautiful sunsets from the upper balcony.

The location of the home is great too, short walk to a beach, that is also dog friendly. But Bethany Be

ach, and Rehoboth are also a short drive. We went to Maryland a few times as well since it is only 45mins away. If you're a Grotto's Pizza addict like my husband there is one less than a min away.

My husband, parents and I had one of the best vacations at the beach that we've had in years. We have no children, so being able to take our pets, and not having to leave them behind at a kennel gave me true piece of mind.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this cute townhouse, as did our little terrier. Great kitchen, lots of space to putter around, and the upstairs deck is a terrific place to sit and read and enjoy the fresh air and the stars at night.

Perfect location, perfect accommodations. This rental is so cute and so wonderfully thought out. We really enjoyed ourselves and appreciated the fact that dogs were permitted. The canal is so peaceful and the ducks are quite friendly. Enjoyed everything about this rental.

We like staying at the Townhouse as it is the perfect size for our family. We like to bring our dog with us on vacation. The townhouse is close to the beach. It is clean and has Wi-Fi which is a big plus for my kids. South Bethany is a quiet, family friendly place. It is perfectly situated between Rehoboth and Ocean City if you are inclined to go to a lively boardwalk.
