About Melissa c. Booth

After vacationing for almost 30 years in Bethany Beach, DE - here we are - Our First Summer at our Wonderful Vacation Home. Frank and I, our Daughter Jana - her husband Doug with the first of our four Grandsons! I guess I had better update this! As an update - we welcomed out first Granddaughter in October of 2012 bringing the total to Four Grandsons and One Granddaughter. Our Family is now spread over the continent making our Vacation Home a wonderful location for Family Reunions.

Melissa c. Booth purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Melissa c. Booth chose Ocean View

We have been vacationing at Bethany Beach since 1978 with our four children and could not resist purchasing this Wonderful End Carriage unit in the Beautiful Resort Community of Bayside at Bethany Lakes. Our growing family still spends wonderful Sunny days together at our favorite getaway.

What makes this townhome unique

We have a Fantastic Clubhouse, full of amenities, wonderful restaurants in the area, and enjoy biking and kayaking. There are nearby grocery stores, golfing and tennis yet this is a place for quiet - wonderful family vacationing. Our family has now grown to include a son-in-law, two daughters-in-law and three wonderful and [of course] adorable grandsons. We all enjoy the fun available because of the cul-de-sac along with direct access to the Clubhouse Walkway. Our community provides a boat dock as well as a kayak launch area with picnic tables in the shade. There are two playgrounds in our community and wonderful nature preserves surrounding us. We are an easy and quick Two mile drive [or bike] to the beach. A beach shuttle is available on the weekends and stops right on our cul-de-sac. We love the wildlife, the beach, the sun filled rooms and the relaxed atmosphere of our second home. We hope you would love it too!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This property shows pride of ownership throughout. It was tastefully decorated and had many of the things I would like to have brought from home (baby gate, kids stool for the bathroom sink). It's very spacious with vaulted ceilings in the master suite and living room. It felt more like a single family home than a condo. It was really convenient having bed linens and bath towels provided.

This is a quaint family community convenient to Bethany beaches and bike trails. It was a nice mix of vacation renters and residents within the complex. Parking was never an issue. The unit has a 2 car garage and there were always plenty of parking spaces in the cul de sac. There is a walkway directly to the clubhouse where kids could safely ride their bikes and be at the pool in 2 minutes, or a 5 minute walk.

The clubhouse is well maintained and staff was friendly. As of July 2015 the fee was $30 per week or they allow a purchase of a daily pass for $8 if your lease is 3 days or less. This gives you access to an indoor pool, hot tub, a nice outdoor pool, game room, and fitness room. There was no kiddie pool. Gym had 3 treadmills, 1 nice elliptical, 2 old ones, a few Cybex machines, and dumbells. Gym was empty during the week and got very busy on Saturday morning. Pool did not get overly crowded. I thought price for facilities was fair compared to other communities in the area and even hotels have started charging a "resort fee".

The owners were very friendly and accommodating. This was my first time renting through VRBO and it was a good experience. The homeowners allowed me to pay through "Homeaway Payments" with my credit card and that put my mind at ease, but after dealing with the owners I would not hesitate to pay by check. I thought this rental was a very good value and I appreciated flexibility of owners in not requiring a week long Saturday to Saturday rental. I highly recommend this property.
