About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 13-14)

Relax and enjoy the morning sun as you look out at the ocean from the living spaces of this 6-bedroom home. Its location in a corner lot affords this home plenty of natural light and beautiful views.

Sit down to eat breakfast with your family and friends in a table that stretches to seat twelve. Then put on your bathing suit, cross the one-lane street and you are at the life guarded beach! When you're ready for a change of scene, come home and relax in the hot tub or in one of the two shaded porches.

Spend the afternoon strolling the neighborhood, biking to the nearest shops, or simply hanging out. In the evening venture out to dinner in Bethany, Rehoboth or Ocean City, Maryland. Finally, before going to bed, be sure to climb the stairs up to the crow's nest to count the stars!

Built in 2005, the Sand Trap comfortably accommodates large groups of friends and families. Three of the bedroom suites have their own bathroom and there is parking for five vehicles on the property plus off street parking for two with a permit. Free wifi.

About The Owner

My husband and I settled in the Maryland suburbs of Washington DC area over twenty years ago. From early on, vacations in Rehoboth and Bethany with our children became a favorite tradition. We've had the opportunity to vacation as a family in some of the best beaches in the US, Mexico and the Caribbean. However, nothing has ever replaced the comfort and sense of belonging that we get vacationing close to home in the Delaware Shore!

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose South Bethany

After spending two years looking for a home in the Bethany area, we were finally were able to make our dream come true by buying a beach house in the summer of 2009. I remember clearly the day in late June when my husband who regularly surfed the real estate listings exclaimed 'Here it is! Our new beach house!' We were drawn in by the brightness of the home, its excellent condition, and the size of the house which lent itself to large gatherings with friends and family. The South Bethany area offered a good compromise between the seclusion of the private beaches of North Bethany and the crowds in downtown Bethany. We also felt that the life guarded beach would appeal to the families with young children that we hoped to share our house with. Finally, the young age of the house meant that it was up-to-date and likely to have less maintenance problems than an older home.

What makes this house unique

The Sand Trap is one house away from the ocean so sitting down in the morning with a cup of coffee and looking at the ocean is one of our favorite activities. If you are an early riser, you can watch the sunrise from inside the house or one of the decks. The crow’s nest also is a favorite hangout providing views north far up the beach and of sunsets across the tops of the houses and trees of Bethany. At night one can check out the stars or moonlight on the ocean while listening to the waves. You can actually hear the waves crashing on the beach from inside the house, but the sound is soothing and not overpowering as it might be with an oceanfront home. We love the home's closeness to downtown Bethany (1.5 miles), to Ocean City (8.5 miles), and to Rehoboth (13.5 miles). Shopping in Delaware is tax free, thereby giving those who don't typically like to shop an excuse to go! Most of all we enjoy sharing the company of our friends and family around a good meal, a sand castle on the beach, or in the hot tub.

AMAZING HOUSE & VIEW!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely beautiful!!! The main living area (kitchen, dining, living rm) is on the top floor, so you get the fantastic view of the ocean! We're a small family of 7 but the 6 bedrooms could sleep so many more. Oh....the hot tub.... outside.... in the winter... incredible! Ria, property owner and Laura, property mgmt, were wonderful! My family & I really enjoyed our stay & will definitely be renting this property again!

Beach Living At It's Best

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the off season and it was just as wonderful as the summer. The house was so spacious and well appointed and every deck had breathtaking views, we enjoyed a different one each day with our morning coffee, pure heaven! We had three generations in the house and there was something for everyone.

Family vacation.....beautiful home!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful and one of the cleanest beach houses we've ever stayed in. It's sooo close to the beach and the ocean views form the roof top deck were amazing. We had the best week as a family!!! The owner was extremely helpful in setting things up & the rental company was easy to work with. The biggest downfall to us was that the beaches said smoke free but people were smoking every day tht we were on the beach. We have 4 asthmatics in our family so this was a disappointment but in no way controllable by the owner.....other than that we had an awesome time and would recommend renting this house to anyone!!!

You can’t go wrong staying here!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting this house for 4 years now and we love it! The home is very roomy and comfortable with ocean views from the 3rd floor living area and the crows nest. Our extended family enjoy being right on the beach street, and the towns of Bethany Beach, Rehoboth, and Ocean City are close by with great restaurants and shops. The owners are very responsive to feedback and have been wonderful.

Wonderful relaxing stay at The Sand Trap

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Bethany Beach. For over 10 years we have gone to the Outerbanks. We didn't know what to expect from the area or the location we picked. We could not have picked a more perfect location and house. We were 8 people in total. The house was very roomy, in a great part of town and so close to the beach. We even were in the section right where the lifeguards were stationed. The hot tub was an added bonus that was enjoyed by all. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location! This home was great for accommodating larger parties- plenty of seating in both living and dining space. Parking is a tad tight but parking passes on the road are available. Hope to return in the future.
