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.

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.

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.

The property is very charming.

The house is comfortable and inviting. It is very clean and tastefully decorated. We have stayed there before and always come back. It is a wonderful week at the beach. The owners are very accommodating.

Wonderful house and location!

  • 5 of 5

Keith and Amy were great - always very responsive and you can see the pride in ownership of this lovely house!

The location is fantastic to be close to the town and the beach. The house is well maintained inside and having a linen service as well as a weekly umbrella and chair rental is really wonderful - an above and beyond touch.

The kitchen is large and well appointed, two bedrooms downstairs and a bathroom with a tub. We used the outside shower (which is great) most of the time. Upstairs is a great bedroom for kids with two beds and a master as well as another bath with laundry.

The screened in porch and wonderful yard and landscaping were our favorite things about the house. We are excited to return next year!

Wonderful vacation cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Five of us spent a week at the cottage and couldn't have been happier with everything about it. First impressions mean alot, and we were really impressed by the curb appeal - the hydrangeas in the front yard are amazing! We really enjoyed coffee and happy hours on the screened porch. Happy hour was equally enjoyed on the back deck! The renovated cottage was immaculate on the inside. The kitchen has high end stainless appliances and is well equipped. The cottage, including all 4 bedrooms, is nicely decorated in a "beachy" way. The beds were all very comfortable and the linen service provides very good quality sheets and towels, including beach towels. We did have to make up our own beds, and then strip them at the end of the week. There are 2 full baths, one upstairs and one down, but the upstairs bathroom has the only indoor shower. There is, however, a fully enclosed, outdoor shower with hot and cold running water. We had no problem using that. The cottage is old, and has a few charming quirks like uneven floors. We loved it! There is parking space in the back of the property, off the ally, that accommodated 2 of our vehicles, both SUVs. Because we came from 3 different directions, we had 3 vehicles and had to park one of them on the street. The rental does include a parking pass for the restricted street parking, but finding space is challenging during the day. Once we parked that vehicle (right out front) we never moved it. The rental also includes rental of a beach umbrella and 2 chairs - a very nice perk - and there are a few extra chairs in the shed. The location of the cottage can't be beat. We walked everywhere. There is a small food market a block away, but we did drive to a supermarket about 3 miles away. We enjoyed walking to the Sunday morning farmer's market just around the corner. Keith responded quickly to all inquiries prior to our arrival, and was quick to sort out a couple of issues for us. We most certainly recommend this beach cottage, and wouldn't hesitate to rent it again.
