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!

Lovely and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and daughter's family enjoyed the beautiful and comfortable home provided by Steven and Debbie. The kitchen was well stocked and well organized. We have stayed in quite a few different places over the years. This gets a very high rating from us. We were delighted one evening to find a gas burning fire pit just outside the pool area too! Even the toads enjoyed it! Thank you, Steven and Debbie! We hope to return.

Amazing Bethany Beach Rental

  • 5 of 5

What a great beach house! This is our second year renting this beautiful and spacious home, which is a perfect set up for families or a group of friends. Steve and Debbie are a dream to work with. They are attentive and responsive hosts and we love being guests in their home.

The house is furnished with everything you could possibly need at the beach—cruiser bikes, beach chairs, boogie boards, toys, and the list goes on. And for the days you don’t want to trek to the beach, there are games, movies and books to keep you entertained. The back patio is a fantastic place for family dinners.

We love being just a quick drive away from the beach and the development’s clubhouse complex has so many amenities. The pool is remarkable—the shallow pool is great for small children and there are ample tables and chairs for relaxing. We can’t wait to reserve our week for next summer.
