About owner/property manager

My husband and I settled in the Maryland suburbs of Washington DC area over twenty years ago. From early on, vacations in Rehoboth and Bethany with our children became a favorite tradition. We've had the opportunity to vacation as a family in some of the best beaches in the US, Mexico and the Caribbean. However, nothing has ever replaced the comfort and sense of belonging that we get vacationing close to home in the Delaware Shore!

owner/property manager purchased this house in 2014

Why owner/property manager chose Bethany Beach

Tennis has always played a big part in my husband's and youngest boy's life. Having access to a world class tennis community has made our trips to the beach even more enjoyable. This house is located close to the beach, shopping and downtown Bethany Beach. With its ideal location and access to all of the Sea Colony amenities, we think our home is a real gem!

Wonderful holiday stay at the Sand Dune

  • 5 of 5

Our family truly enjoyed our post Christmas holiday at the Sand Dune. The many comfortable bedrooms and social areas provided room and activities for everyone - adults, teens and young children alike. We played many happy games around the generous dining table, spent hours in the new Sea Colony fitness center, and enjoyed several of the nearby restaurants as well. The Sand Dune was a great place to stay and we hope to return one day!

Wonderful Property! A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My family (12 people) and I stayed at this wonderful property for Labor day weekend. 10 minutes from just about everything you will need while on your stay. The property is well maintained and decorated nicely. Plenty of room for three generations of my family. You won't be sorry if you decide to stay here.

Beautiful home that was just right for our 3 famil

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 adults and 3 teenage boys and this house was just right for myself and 2 daughters and their families. It was decorated beautifully and was very clean when we arrived. We rented through Sand Castle Realty and they were very helpful. Everything was so close and we walked across the street to the Beach and the Oceanside pools. The boys loved it. Also, the Sea Colony Marketplace had everything we needed - including a bike shop to rent bikes which we did. This was our first time at Bethany Beach and we loved how small, quiet and quaint it was compared to Ocean City, MD. It had great little shops and restaurants. We would definitely rent this home again and recommend it highly.

Perfect summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we expected from the pictures. It was great to be able to park 4 cars at the house. We had 11 people total and the house never felt cramped. It was the perfect location, just a short walk to the beach. Great smoothies at the Market Place. No issues during our stay, we were able to get in early, which was great. Thanks for sharing your beautiful house with us!

Great house for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Sane Dune second year in a row for an extended family vacation and this house does not disappoint! The house is spacious, clean and the furniture is comfortable and not worn out. The kitchen is well equipped and there are multiple outdoor spaces so everyone can spread out and have their own space. The location is perfect! Right across the street from the beach and access to all Sea Colony amenities. The owner is also very responsive and cares about her property. She returns emails quickly and takes care of any issues immediately. I hope we will be back!

Great April Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation at this property. The house has a great layout Perfect for a large group. We had 10 people there - ages 23 to 60 - and had everything we needed. There are plenty of gathering places for group activities and plenty of space for everyone to spread out and relax. The house has all the amenities and is well stocked. The location is perfect. We walked or rode our bikes to the beach, pool, gym and Bethany boardwalk.

The town of Bethany Beach is located one mile from the house. CVS, Walgreens, a liquor store, Dunkin Donuts, Armands Pizza, Subway and many others are within a five minute walk to the house. This house has the perfect location for families with young adults who want to enjoy the relative freedom of being able to walk to town or to go eat. For those who want to bike, a bike rental facility is across the street.

Three full-size grocery stores are all within four miles of the house.
