About Dave Foster

We are Dave and Gretchen Foster. We live in Lake Placid, NY We celebrated our wedding anniversary with our family in the Bethany Beach area, and it was such a hit that we returned the following year! While on vacation we found the Watermark community. We had recently sold a Rental property, and we wanted something that was closer to our family. Bethany Beach's location and amenities made it an obvious choice for our second home. This home will have all new furniture, and fully equipped for your vacation. We have 6 Grandchildren, so we will be thinking about how to set up this home with Families in mind. We will be updating the pictures throughout the building process, and we will be adding pictures to show the furnishings as we purchase them. We hope you'll consider renting with us at Marsh View. We have been doing this for 12 years, so we know how to make your vacation a thing of comfort and ease.

Dave Foster purchased this house in 2013

Why Dave Foster chose Delaware

This is a New community. It has a safe and quiet feel. We really wanted a new house, and a chance to do a Coastal look in the décor. We can't over state the View at Marsh View. We live on our Screen Porch,in New York, so we added a large one to this house. We have a comfy and beautiful Sectional sofa in this space, and another dining area. We live on this porch- the birds and the sunsets are wonderful. The Upper deck has another sectional sofa and lounge for your sun lovers! We also love to explore the various beaches, and hiking trails.

What makes this house unique

The fact that our family of 14 is comfortable is the reason for this floor plan. We also think it's important to have a Dining room table that fits 14 people! Another important fact is that the sleeping for 14 means everyone has a bed. No one will be on the dreaded Sleeper sofa! We think everyone will be comfortable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for allowing us to live in your Beach house this week! The time with family has been a blessing. I do have to say I loved the kayaking and the water behind the house is so peaceful! Thanks

My wife and I really enjoyed the place you have set up. "Placid View" was very cozy and the house decorations gave my wife good ideas for our house. Thank You!

We loved the Screen porch--our Grandkids could run in and out, and just had a great time!

Bethany Town Beach
Car: necessary

Bethany Beach is a lovely location for a vacation. It has beautiful beaches, and the Town of Bethany Beach is pristine! The Boardwalk is a treat for people of every age, and the restaurants are numerous. It's a beachcombers paradise. We find that the surrounding area is fun too--the famous Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk has the famous ' Funland' park for the kids. The rides are cheap, and it's a must visit. Our grandkids love the rides, and it won't break the bank. The Boardwalk in Bethany Beach is great too. It has numerous restaurants and attractions for families. We are just finding out about the many hiking trails the area has to offer. We'll put some maps at the house. Of course if you like to fish, there are plenty of spots to either hire a Guide, or go crabbing. For the Shoppers in your group there are numerous Outlets in Rehoboth Beach. Boat rentals are possible too. we especially like renting a Pontoon boat for the afternoon and motor around Rehoboth Bay.

Perfect family reunion getaway

  • 5 of 5

This VRBO property is spectacular! We wanted a place for our family reunion of 13 people 4th of July week.

This place not only had large bedrooms and baths for everyone, but room to spare! The open space living room, kitchen, and dining space plus the added option of opening the huge wall sliders to include the enclosed deck was more than we could asked for! We lived on that deck!

Location of this home is the best in this community having the boarded walkway to the kayak launch right in our own back yard plus the community's pool was three houses away at end of cul-de-sac.

Added bonus was the outdoor shower in the garage to clean up after being out kayaking or at the beach!

We made the best memories here! Thanks to Dave and Gretchen Foster for their lovely home for this occasion!

Lovely comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We spent memorial weekend here with a small group of friends. We are so glad we chose Gretchen and Dave's home. From the moment you walk in, you are met with quite a lot of elegant but cozy charm. The open floor plan was great because we could all be together even while cooking.

The kitchen had everything we could need. The pantry and fridge provided some essential spices and condiments which we really appreciated.

The home itself was clean and comfortable. Everyone loved their rooms and the beds were incredible. We spent most of our time in the screened porch which was definitely the highlight of the home.

The house wasn't far from the beach (which we went to for one day) and Rehoboth Beach. There is so much to do but it was hard to leave the comfort of that porch or the kitchen!

Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home and location. We had a wonderful time with great friends. The place was very clean and extremely well equipped. The view outback is beautiful and serene. The kayaks were a hit and the kayak launch was really helpful. A highlight was the large sliding doors that create an indoor/outdoor great room on those cool evenings. I would highly recommend this rental!

The house was very spacious and clean for our family. The fact that we didn't have to bring our own linens was great, not always the case with rental homes. The crib and the baby gate was nice since we had two young children. We loved the screened in back patio that overlooked the marsh. My mom thought it was very peaceful to sit out there early in the morning. We did need to drive a short distance to the beach, but the pool was right next door and we had just as much fun there as we did at the beach. And Gretchen was very helpful and easy to reach by call or text when we had questions about check in. Overall, a wonderful vacation home.
