It perfect spot for a relaxing vacation just minutes from all the activities in the Quiet Resort of Bethany Beach.

The living room has a comfy sofa and two great chairs. You will find cable TV, a DVD player and a stereo. We have added a cable modem and wireless router for 2011. Comfortable furnishings will help those leisure hours slip away. For rainy days, there are dvd's, books, games and puzzles to amuse yourself with.

The home has two bedrooms. The master has a queen-size bed and a half bath. This room also has a second cable TV. The other bedroom has twin beds. A full bath is at the center of the house. There is a 'fold-a way' bed in the closet for your use. The sofa is not a pull out sleep sofa.

You will find a complete kitchen with new appliances, including a microwave, dishwasher, toaster and coffee pot. Dishes, glasses, flatware, pots, pans, utensils and a coffee maker are provided for your use.

The wooded wetlands provide a vibrant background for the outdoor part of the house. The home has a screened porch and deck on the 'wetland' side of the house. There you will find a table for outdoor dining, and lounge furniture surrounded by tall pines and wonderful sounds. This home is 'pet friendly' and there is a small fenced area for your furry friend to wander on his/her own. We do ask people who bring their dogs to also bring covers for the furniture and beds incase the dogs like to sit on it.

The community has a swimming pool and tennis courts. Public beaches are available at the Delaware Seashore Park and the Fenwick Island State Park. Public beaches are also available in Bethany Beach and South Bethany. However, parking meters are in effect from May 15-September 15, with a maximum time of 2 hours.

About Kathryn Beck

We are full time residents of the Bethany Beach area and have this property is one our two rental units. We are both in Real Estate, and enjoy the communities here. We have the unit as a 'pet friendly' house because we used to have a curly coated retriever named Dewey. We have a cat named Itty Bitty. We have moved into a brand new home on the other side of Muddy Neck Rd, called the Beach Club. So we are very close to the Rental House in case you need something. The house we moved out of is our other rental!

Kathryn Beck purchased this house in 2003

Why Kathryn Beck chose Frankford

Our Clearwater Cottage on Anna Maria Drive is just outside the limits of Bethany Beach, but close enough to get there in 10 minutes. Clearwater is a two part development, and our cottage is in the back part. There are woods and wetlands behinds us. We think its a quiet community with a lot of friendly pet owners. Also, there is a community pool and tennis court available to you. We have a great screened in eating area on the back, and an open deck to catch some sun rays.

What makes this house unique

Many people won't rent out their places to people with dogs or cats. However, we believe that most pet owners have been responsible, and have treated the cottage well. You can't take dogs on the beach except if you go to one of the Fishing Beaches. You will need to purchase a fishing license in order to do this, and you can drive on and fish.

Cute and quiet pet-friendly house

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 plus 2 dogs had a relaxing time this past weekend. The house is cozy and settled within a quite community. My kids loved that the house backs up to a wooded area with a small creek and that we could walk the dogs safely around the neighborhood daily. The small fenced-in yard was perfect for letting the dogs out. We were very comfortable and hope to stay again in the future!

Super Pet Friendly

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, quaint place just outside Bethany. Great for our family of 4 and 1 dog. The neighbors at the pool were really nice, the tennis court was a plus for us. 5 min from the beach. I can't thank the owner enough for allowing us to bring our dog. Honestly you would never know pets stay here, it's that clean! Nice sized rooms and good size kitchen. The fenced in yard is a plus if you bring your pet. I really enjoyed the hardcover book of the local area, gave us lots of ideas for kayaking and other day trips. The Rehoboth outlets are a short 20 min trip in good traffic, Fenwick Island State beach is nice. I would recommend this house for families who enjoy quiet at night and don't mind a short car ride to get to attractions.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed two weeks at this location. It is only minutes from Bethany Beach and a short ride to Fenwick State Park. The community is very quiet. We found the house to be perfect for our needs for a family of 4. It was clean and had enough supplies ( paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap, etc) to last our two weeks. Looking forward to going back next year.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Second time staying at the house and couldn't have been happier. Perfect place for our family with two young children and a dog. The pool is a great bonus, and the neighborhood is friendly and quiet. Close to downtown Bethany, easy to find. The owners are easy to get in touch with and very helpful. Can't wait to go back next year!

Wonderful House and Neighborhood

We had a really great week and enjoyed our stay completely. Truly lovely house with comfortable furnishings. The screened deck was great for evenings and our dogs loved it. The owners were communicative and very helpful. Overall an A+ rental.
