About Phyllis Martin
Owner and her dogs enjoying the beach at nearby (walk-to from house) Fenwick Island State Park.
Phyllis Martin purchased this House in 1995
Why Phyllis Martin chose South Bethany Beach
Our main requirement was the boat ramp. Love to be on the water and explore the back bays by boat, cruise to local restaurants and tie up for lunch/dinner, watch the sunsets from the decks and watch the ducks that frequent the canal. All this, plus just a short walk to the beach. A second key reason is the proximity to the state park (just to the South) where we can enjoy the beach with our dogs. The third reason was the quiet location at the southern edge of Bethany --- away from it all, yet still very close.
What makes this House unique
Great for the dogs! Walk to state park where they are allowed 24 hours a day. Walk to McCabe's Gourmet Market for morning coffee and breakfast --- patio is dog friendly and they always come with us! Watching the ducks swim by from the decks or screened porch is a favorite pastime of mine, and boating/kayaking in the canals and bay is great.

We booked this house last minute after our stay on Hatteras was cancelled due to hurrican Dorian. Phyllis was super accommodating on check-in and check-out times. She was so easy to communicate with throughout the week when we had a few questions.
The house layout worked great for us. My husband and I and our two small children on one wing, and my mom and brother on the other side.
Location wise this place was spot on. Easy 2 min drive to the beach with ample parking. Roughly a 10 minute walk to the beach with a great gourmet market on the way. We grabbed some munchies to take on the beach with us several days. The house is right on the canal with a boat ramp and dock. We were able to kayak right from the backyard!
The house could use some updating but it was comfortable and worked for the amount a time we spend in the house and kitchen. (We cooked 5 nights out of 7)
Thanks for a great week Phyllis!
Beautiful time in Bethany
My family and I had an amazing stay at Phyllis and David’s Bethany home. Everything was wonderful. The beach is a short walk away with everything else a short drive away (check out the shops on the Bethany boardwalk). The beach was gorgeous. The backyard was one of our favorites: we crabbed, and we were able to easily use our kayak and paddle board. We enjoyed every minute of our stay! We hope to enjoy Bethany for years to come.
Loved this house! Super clean and very spacious. We were only 5, but plenty of room for 8 total. Kitchen adequately equipped (knives need sharpening). Gorgeous street and super quiet. We brought our dog and enjoyed bringing her to McCabes down the street. Walking distance to the beach but super convenient to have parking pass! Rented bikes and loved all of the little canal side streets. Rented kayaks too from coastal kayak. My son loved crab hunting from the beautiful dock. Complete with Adirondack chairs! Thank you Phyllis!
South Bethany property
House could have been cleaner.
I apologize for any oversight in the cleaning prior to your stay and will pass your comments on to my cleaners. Had I known that there were any problems, I would have sent the cleaning crew back. I hope that this was a minor glitch in your stay and trust that your overall experience was enjoyable.
This is a perfect and quiet location. The canal view is beautiful, the house is ideal, and both Bethany and Fenwick/OC are a driveable distance. I'd definitely bring the family here again.
Pleasant, spacious, vacation rental
Spacious home, good condition, and allows pets. Owner very nice to work with. For you walkers, getting to the beach, no problem. For those of you who like the ocean real close by, you might be a tad disappointed. To me, walking to the beach felt like a good trek. I would compare it to a 4 block walk, and that includes crossing a 4 lane highway. (No real problem there cause there is a traffic signal there that makes crossings easy.) The house has a good location. You are close to Bethany Beach, Ocean City, Fenwick Island, and lots of attractions. But, you will have to drive to them. I would recommend this house just on my dealings with the owner of this home, alone. She was absolutely lovely and really had our (the guests) best interests at heart.
Boating and Crabbing right off your own dock. Kayak, pontoon boat, other boat rentals nearby.
