James Farm Ecological Preserve is a very, very short 1.4 mile walk/drive and right down the street from our home. It has a free, public beach that is pet friendly 365 days/year! Since it is on the bayside, it is very calm and the water is very shallow. Perfect for little ones.

We also have a great sit-on kayak available for rent. Whites Creek is an absolute fantastic river and just out our "back-door". Kayak storage and launch is only a short walk from our home. Rental rates are $95 for the entire time of your stay. Additional kayaks are available from outside 3rd party and rates range from $125/week to $175. Please let me know if you are interested.

Private Garage Parking for 2 Cars and Multiple Spots for additional cars if needed.

My goal is for our guests to fall in love with our home and come back year-after-year. We take guest satisfaction very seriously and will do whatever it takes to make that happen. Every year I survey all of my past guests for feedback on what we could have done to make the home better and implement those suggestions. Thank you for taking the time to view our home and I welcome any questions that you have. I'm looking forward to having you stay at our home.

** Details about Special. Book any full 2017 full week (7 nights) prior to 11/30/16 and receive free 3 night reservation in off-season (October 15-April 15). Holidays (ie Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Easter, Presidents Day, MLK, etc...) and any current reservations don't apply.

About Brooke P.

We purchased this home as our vacation property and absolutely fell in love with the quiet beaches of Bethany. We used it as our second home for years but just recently decided to rent due to my work schedule where I travel most summers. We hope you enjoy our home as much as our family does!

Brooke P. purchased this townhome in 2005

Guestbook comments from the owner

Brooke was a fantastic host - extremely friendly, detailed, and responsive to questions. All of her recommendations for the Bethany Beach area were spot on, and she took the time to ensure we had all the information needed for a fun and relaxing vacation. As for the unit, it is exactly as described and is in fantastic shape. The bedrooms are spacious as are the 2 master bathrooms. The kitchen is well equipped to accommodate a large group of guests and had anything we needed for cooking. As for the location, it's an quick and easy trip to Bethany Beach (we never once had an issue with parking). The neighborhood is very quiet and extremely family friendly. I highly recommend the clubhouse - the pools and game room were a hit with the kids. We grilled out by the pool once for lunch, and the kids had a blast. There is a nice deck out on the bay specifically for watching sunsets, which is near the piers used for crabbing and fishing. All in all, this was a great trip and we are hoping to return in the future. Thanks Brooke!

Wonderful space

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing. It is spacious and comfortable with beautiful touches. We had plenty of space for our family. The well-maintained community was also a highlight. We cannot wait to go back

Perfect for family vacation - we had a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. We went for a family vacation with 6 adults and 2 children (girls aged 4 and 8). It's a large, beautiful space with lots of room for playing games, hanging out together, cooking, eating, etc. The plush big beds and jacuzzi bathtubs were a treat and the kids especially loved the clubhouse with its indoor pool and game rooms. Supermarkets and restaurants/bars conveniently located and it was about a 5 min drive to the beach. The owner is very responsive and he also sent us a link to a handy website he created with suggested places to eat and visit, which was quite helpful. We highly recommend this rental and we plan to stay here again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review. I'm glad you were able to get your extended family down and spend some good quality time down at the beach. I can sympathize with how difficult it is trying to get the entire family together together at the holidays. I'm also so glad you enjoyed the new mobile website of all our local recommendations. We have spent the last 10 years compiling the "Best of" lists of restaurants, things to do, etc... to truly give our guests the "local" experience. I was so happy to find the technology that made it easy to distribute to our guests. Since you stayed with us, we added additional features like check-in and check-out instructions, wifi codes, clubhouse rules and policies and many more. To have all of this information in one easy place is very helpful. We hope you come back and stay with us again! Thank you!

Great house for two families to have a relaxing summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at this home. The house was in great condition and a comfortable size for two families. The complex had a nice sized pool which was never too crowded as well as a bbq, stocked kitchen, game room, etc. The location was perfect. Close enough to get to the beach and restaurants within minutes yet far enough away to not be in the crowds. Brooke's advice on where to go was spot on.

We have a wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and fit our needs perfectly. We loved having the bikes there as we did not bring our own. The only suggestion is having more games/books. Most rental properties I've stayed at usually have a closet or drawer with lots of board games and books. We could only find two puzzles - which we did put together. Thanks for having us.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in our home and thank you so much for the feedback regarding providing more games and books. I am going to buy a bunch of games and puzzles immediately and leave them in our home the next time I head down. We have hundreds of books at our full time home and I will bring a bunch down so that guests can feel free to read while their staying in our home or "leave a book/take a book". Thanks again for the suggestion!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week's stay at a truly beautiful home at Bethany Lakes. My family arrived to find a large, immaculate home which provided us with a most wonderful stay. The property owner (Brooke) was always just a text message away to answer any questions , and thoughtfully provided a comprehensive list of things to do, and restaurants to visit in the area during our stay. The clubhouse with indoor and outdoor pools, game room, large fully equipped kitchen , tennis courts, and lounge truly enhanced our stay. Located just a five minute drive from Bethany Beach we were able to hit the beach early in the day and then return in the evening to stroll the boardwalk and visit the shops.

If planning a visit to the Bethany Beach area this property deserves serious consideration for your vacation. Laura Mullahy

Fantastic Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with all the amenities! We had a fabulous week! The Club House includes a huge outdoor pool, indoor pool with a hot tub and plenty of activities inside. It is a short drive to the beautiful beaches in Bethany.

Brooke was the best! He guides you through every step and was so accommodating. Any questions he responds to you immediately. I would highly recommend this as the perfect vacation spot!!!!
