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.

Very convenient

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this very clean and well appointed house in Bethany Beach. It came with great amenities, like the parking pass, chairs, chairs and umbrella from Stevens, linens and towels. My grandchildren love being close to all the ice cream stores!

thank you for a great. Week in your home.

"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!

Wonderful location, wonderful house, wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Reluctant to share what a treasure this house is, because then everyone will want it! Lovely older, but perfectly updated home a short stroll from the beach and within walking distance of all the Bethany food and drink locations.

We only had a weekend for the Bethany Beach to Bay bike ride, so hardly had time to enjoy the screened in porch and the back deck, but we did enjoy a nice post-ride collapse with a cold one in the beautiful front garden. We loved the open space main floor with the perfect large table, and living room area. The house was spotless, well equipped, and well stocked with all the essentials we might need for our short stay.

We were off season, and very much appreciated the check-in and check-out flexibility.

Thank you, Keith and Amy!

Would highly recommend this property!

Convenient Remodeled Beach Shack

  • 5 of 5

Location is great! It's only one block from the beach and a block away from the downtown restaurants and shopping! We really enjoyed the house. It was clean and the porch was a nice place to spend the evenings playing cards, etc. The only small improvement would be a shower in the downstairs bathroom because it makes it a little challenging showering with two families. However, overall we had a relaxing weekend and comfortable stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. Actually, next month the downstairs bath is getting a makeover with a shower being added for next season!

I would definitely rent again

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in this house with 5 other friends (all adults) in mid-September. The location is perfect. The house had everything that we needed: it was clean, the beds were comfortable , the kitchen was well appointed. We spent a lot of time in the enclosed patio in the front of the house. The back of the house has a picnic table, a clothesline, a shed with some beach chairs (but you should bring your own), an outdoor shower. The bedrooms look better than in the photos. Everything was good quality. Keith, the owner, was very responsive. I would definitely rent this house again.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is in a perfect location! So close to town with none of the noise and the beach and boardwalk are just half a block away. Unless we were going out of town, our car remained parked at the house. It is beautifully decorated with a great farmhouse table in the kitchen and lovely dishes and glassware. Huge refrigerator for all your foods and beverages. It also had a lovely backyard. Linens and towels are supplied and two beach chairs and a large umbrella are available to you upon request when you arrive at the beach- all included in your rental. A very nice perk!

The owners were so helpful. We accidentally locked ourselves out of the house one day :( and they came quickly and were very understanding.

We loved Bethany and this cozy, beautiful cottage. It is even nicer than depicted by the photos.
