About Keith and Amy

Amy grew up less than five miles away from Bethany and spent her summers as a beach chair and umbrella girl. I grew up in the mountains of Vermont, but for some reason I loved the beach, so when I came to Washington DC, I had to go to the beach. The beach is where we met, fell in love and plan to spend the rest of our time watching our son Hudson, now 6, become a beach lover like us.

Keith and Amy purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Keith and Amy chose Delaware

Location is everything, park your car at the beginning of your stay and never have to use it again. Just around the corner is the family friendly downtown area of Bethany Beach. Kids will enjoy the ice cream parlors, DB boardwalk fries, putt putt golf, the old fashioned five and dime and Grottos Pizza, all within two blocks from the house. Adults will enjoy the great restaurants and boutique shopping right in town. A ten mile drive in either direction and you'll find water parks, golfing, outlet shopping and other great summer fun activities.

Perfect beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, well appointed and equipped ( have rented many properties but this truly has everything from towels to cooking utensils). Bright, sunny with quiet areas for folks to secret away with a good book. Great backyard for family, grilling, or games. Lots of toys, bikes and beach toys in shed. Plan to rent again. Keith and Amy are very responsive to any questions.

A beautifully decorated cottage right in the heart of it all!

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Quick walk to the beach. Beautiful neighborhood. Driveway can hold two cars - cottage also included parking pass for on street parking which was priceless for Bethany. Backyard is a MAJOR plus – perfect for a friendly game of cornhole. Keith and Amy was responsive and helpful. They went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. We had an amazing time in this beautifully decorated cottage right in the heart of it all!

Great location close to town and the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at the beach. House was close to everything we wanted to do on the trip , and that was mainly relaxing! We were concerned that it may be too noisy being it was so close to town but turned out not to be a problem at all, it was very quiet. Would recommend this house to anyone who wants to have an "in town" vacation at Bethany. Short walk to the beach and the towel /linnen service was a great extra.

"Mommy, can we live at the beach forever???"

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for our family of four with two toddlers. The kids were able to take the upstairs bedrooms while we stayed downstairs. The house is even much nicer in person than it looks in the pictures (several design updates!).

The kids loved: playing on the screened porch (it was kind of like a secret hideout), playing soccer in the backyard, being able to walk to beach, and the "secret" passageway from the alley to the shops (which was perfect when it was raining!).

We loved: the open layout and cleanliness of the space, that everything was thought of (hooks, excellent cookware, the list goes on), proximity to the beach, coffee on the screened in porch, grilling on the back deck while the kids played.

We had a few issues while we were there, but the owners were responsive and very polite in dealing with everything.

It was so perfect that our older son asked as we were leaving if we could live at the beach in this house forever!
