Beautiful roomy town home

  • 5 of 5

Very well kept home in a very well kept community. Pool and club house are top notch. We had 5 adults and two small children and had plenty of room. Distance to the beach was perfect for us. Only 10 minutes by car but far enough to get away from the traffic / crowds. Owner includes beach chairs and umbrellas to use so packing for our trip was really easy. Looking forward to renting the place again next year.

Everything we look for in a vacation home was there and in a beautiful community. Easy access shop

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked into this beautiful home we knew my wife made a fabulous choice. Everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay was there. Wish we could have stayed longer! Don't pass up at least a good look at this "Home Away" gem.

Steve & Debbie Shaffer's house was a wonderful place to stay on our vacation. As all the other reviewers say, it is tastefully decorated and exceptionally equipped. We felt right at home. If we're ever back in Bethany Beach we wouldn't hesitate a second to stay here again. Steve & Debbie don't offer any electronic payment methods but after checking property records and bank account ownership we decided to take a chance wiring them funds directly and we sure are glad we did.

Check out Off the Hook in town for an excellent meal.

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This house is clean, spacious, beautifully decorated, and well equipped. The owners, Steve and Debbie, are great, making themselves available whenever we needed to reach them and they are very friendly. The location of the house is good and the pool is very nice with fun amenities you might expect at a water park. I especially liked how well stocked the kitchen was. There are plenty of pots and pans, kitchen utensils and such but what I really liked was the variety. They have really nice place settings for nicer family meals but they also have plastic ware for the kids that they find fun like fish shaped plates. Absolutely everything is in good shape. I highly recommend this house and these owners because they care if you have a nice vacation. When home base feels good it so much easier to enjoy the beach, shopping, biking, restauranting or whatever you have in mind. Try Catch 54 in Fenwick for a great seafood restaurant.

Beautiful, spacious, and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Bethany Beach. The weather was perfect and the accommodations superb. We enjoyed the pool everyday, the location, the friendly neighbors, the fire pit, the boardwalk and the beach. Steven and Debbie's home was welcoming, personable, and so inviting. The beachy decor and beautiful furnishing was even better in person then pictured. They truly have thought of everything games, movies, books, stocked basics in the pantry, noodles and pool toys you name it they have it covered. I can't possible say enough about Steven and Debbie they checked in with us before our vacation, they gave us tips of what to do and where to go they were easy to reach if we had a question or needed help with anything. It was all around a fantastic vacation and met all of our expectations and more. The worst part was having to go back home!
