The Perfect Venue To Create Family Memories With Something For Everyone
Bob and Cindi
About Bob and Cindi
Having searched for years, we found the perfect vacation setting at The Cove in North Bethany. Unlike anything else, we hope you appreciate the uniqueness of a small, gated community with amenities of those many times the size. Unlike many owners, we don't substitute lesser furniture, kitchen accommodations or other comforts during the rental season. The home having never been previously rented should be enjoyed by our guests as a second home, not a tired public vacation rental. Please hold us accountable. During the turnover of the property (after the prior tenant has departed and before your arrival), not only is the property professionally cleaned by a hand picked group of professionals, but the owners are on site for the purpose of oversight of cleanliness, making repairs as necessary and guaranteeing perfection prior to your arrival. We know this may be your only vacation for the year. The home is complimented with small touches which help to make memories, enhance family member relationships and add to your overall Bethany experience. After you depart, we will politely ask you to provide comments to support our focus to make your vacation experience nothing less than exceptional. We measure our success based upon guest feedback and rate of guest future bookings.
Bob and Cindi purchased this House in 2014
Why Bob and Cindi chose Bethany Beach
The community itself is a unique enclave of 21 luxury homes of which only a small percentage are offered for rental. Our home exploits not only the resources of the community, but how our home compliments a family friendly, diverse activity environment. With nearly one-half acre of land including a huge manicured rear lawn for activities including what may become your annual family volleyball challenge; wiffle ball, frisbee, corn hole or the ultimate touch football pickup game. A rear deck spanning the entire width of the property, offering uninterrupted, panoramic view of the bay - the perfect gathering place for guests to end their day. Compliment this vantage point with a paddle fan cooled, screened in porch where those who wish to escape with their beach reading material are taking full advantage of this hideaway. If you feel any activity to get to the pool or beach is a major undertaking, count on our accommodations to make it (almost) enjoyable. The huge pool, a one-minute walk from the house, is rarely crowded and the generous landscaped sun deck surrounding the pool makes for a true memory making destination. Abundant chaise lounge chairs, tables with sunbrellas are available also for our Guests' enjoyment. Clean restrooms at the pool house offer convenience and are complimented with the on-site gym. The pool features a large shallow area for smaller children (parental supervision always required). For the athletic, a half court basketball venue is adjacent to the pool as is a regulation sized har-tru tennis court. Bring your cell phone and capture video and pics of your family at play in the truest sense. Copy/paste for interactive virtual tour: http://tours.obeo.com/default?section=ifloorplan&tourid=1011884
What makes this House unique
Satisfaction of your personal needs: For the sun loving family, a beach cart fully equipped with cooler, storage and one half dozen beach chairs for your use to easily migrate across one street and onto the unspoiled beach. For the water oriented, bring your kayak and launch from within the community. Power boaters and watercraft owners can launch from the Indian River marina less than a mile away - providing direct access to the bay and ocean. Runners and bicycle enthusiasts will appreciate the wide shoulders and flat, scenic paths just outside the community gates. Nature lovers will embrace the home's view of the naturally formed lagoon within 50 feet attracting numerous water fowl, large and small. The adventurous will love the close proximity to several beach towns each with their own character: Ocean City, Maryland - high energy night life, bustling and walk around food abound with a huge 20+ block boardwalk; Rehoboth Beach, Delaware - a seaside, cottage filled town with a quaint retail area of small shops peppered with bistros and beach bars. Just outside the town are three strip malls filled with gourmet shops, upscale clothing and the finest in home accents at outlet pricing. Dewey Beach, Delaware - a town with attitude attracting plenty of young, single partygoers complimented with a number of competitive and fund raising 5k, marathon and tri-athalon events.

We had a wonderful family vacation. Two families of sisters with their husbands and young adult children. Such a beautiful relaxing stay, we hope to come back. This was the best Fourth of July ever! We were able to watch the fireworks from the screened porch. Thank you.
Will definitely rent again!
Beautiful home and great location! Cindi and Bob take pride in their rental home from the high end furniture and decor to the cleanliness and fully stocked kitchen. The home is very spacious so you don't feel like you're sitting on top of each other. We had a wonderful stay and will be renting again in the future.
Thank you very much. We try to eliminate all surprises and support those little "incidental needs" that are for use while cooking or other areas of the home that eliminate those little trips to pick up one or two items.
Absolutely wonderful place to escape and rejuvenate. Lovely property, as described. Each ensuite was exactly what we needed.
Beautiful bayfront home and wonderful vacation
We had a mini-vacation (4 nights) at this lovely home, and cannot recommend it more highly. Over the past decade we have rented many homes in Bethany and Rehoboth, and this is by far our favorite!
The house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The bay views from the decks and screened porch were memorable. It is the perfect setting for “getting away from it all”, and getting in touch with nature.
The home is very well-stocked, and it was very convenient to have everyday necessities supplied.
Location is another major plus. The ocean is a short walk away, and nearby beach towns a short drive.
The owners are very responsive. The packet of information we received was informative and thorough, and answered all our questions.
We look forward to another stay at Waters Edge soon!
Your comments are so appreciated. We are personally onsite before Guests arrive to verify we are delivering a home without disappointment.
The house has such a unique location with the front of the Property facing the natural lagoon and the rear of the Property having the uninterrupted view of the bay - each body of water with its own eco-system to watch and enjoy. Could we go as far as to say it would cause our younger Guests to be distracted from their phone to enjoy the nature that surrounds the community.
Annual All Girls Weekend
We have finally found what we've been looking for over the past 39 years. This house was absolutely perfect for our annual girls trip. Five of us have spent a weekend together every single year since we graduated from college in 1979 and the older we get, the nicer accommodations we need. This was it. A bedroom for each of us. A bathroom for each of us. And plenty of socializing room on the main floor. Everything is top quality and comfortable and the owners couldn't have been nicer. We were there in November, so the temperatures weren't quite beach-worthy, but we could easily imagine how lovely it would be to sit out on one of the decks and watch the water in nicer weather. Sadly, my spouse will suffer from my weekend in Bethany Beach as my new life goal is to have a bathroom exactly like the one in the upstairs master bedroom. And I won't rest until I get it. Or maybe, I'll just go back every year for my fix. Thank you Bob and Cindi for sharing your home with us!
We sincerely appreciate your comments. We work hard to exceed expectation wherever possible.
One of the defining reasons for the choice of this house when we purchased was the open areas for gathering. We sought out a home which allowed all groups, whether family members, gathering of friends or any circle of related parties to apply the home as an extension of vacation experience - not simply lodging.
As each year we return the profits generated to enhancing the property, we hope our Guests get a return on their vacation dollar and a fresh and constantly improved venue each year of their return.
Relaxing with Friends
Our group could not have asked for more. 5 large bedrooms with comfortable beds and their own bathrooms. Full open kitchen with all the necessities to cook. Dining area inside to seat 10. Living room with 3 comfortable sofas and a large TV to watch our football games. The back deck with BBQ and another large table for scenic outdoor eating overlooking the bay. Able to walk to the beach. A quick drive to Bethany, Dewey and Rehoboth. A small boat ramp. This location has it all. A truly wonderful stay!
Welcome to your vacation getaway - this home is rented on a limited basis and considered a second home.
Expect high quality finishes, exceptional comfort and convenience. The home is sited on nearly a one-half acre direct bayfront lot.
Enjoy a deck the width of the home along with a screened porch for early morning coffee, family bar-b-que or contemplating the lazy clouds while enjoying your favorite beverage in your chaise lounge.
All bedrooms feature panoramic water views. Those facing the front enjoy a vantage of a natural wildlife lagoon with waterfowl and supporting natural habitat. Some bedrooms offer private sundecks accessible only to its occupants while others enjoy whirlpool tubs for ... More than one.
The gated community of only 21 homes making use of the huge pool, sun deck, sport court with tennis and basketball - always uncrowded. A perfect home base for those who love water oriented lifestyle including kayaking and immediate water access.
No disappointments upon arrival. The owner is onsite during every change of guests to ensure perfection in presentation and quickly respond to any small repairs reported by the departing tenant.
Lots of room with 3,300 finished square feet including two master suites. Upgraded appliances and all creature comforts including gas grill to satisfy your culinary pursuits.
Water: guests have direct access to the beach by simply crossing one street outside the community gates. For those who wish to minimize sand and salt, the olympic pool with uncrowded deck, rest rooms/bathhouse and gym are convenient for families with young children and within a one-minute walk from the house.
Lots of flat screen televisions supported by dvd players as well as extensive cable channel selections ... And, of course, high speed wireless internet to satisfy everyone's addiction.
Take advantage of our courtesies: unlike most homes, no need to bring paper products, hand soap or detergent; we supply these disposables so you spend less, transport less and never run out.
Proximity to fine, casual dining is as close as the five minute ride to downtown bethany, or the excitement of ocean city, maryland boardwalk within fifteen minutes. Don't forget to allow plenty of time to visit the rehoboth outlet stores and those just outside ocean city. And, if you are feeling lucky, the maryland casino is a short drive as well. Avid fisherman will appreciate the immediate access to the indian river inlet with charter boats available and a fresh catch store where you purchase tonight's dinner directly on the dock as it arrives.
We suggest you use the home as a central location for exploring - many small towns outside of rehoboth and bethany offer small shops, ice cream stores and the lifestyle that epitomizes lower slower delaware (lsd). Don't forget to bring your bikes and enjoy some of the many paved trails along the delaware coast. Biking allows you to reach the towns of fenwick, dewey, rehoboth and bethany. With so much to do, the only thing you may run out of is time.
Please set your standards high when considering our home, but many families look to relive their memories each year with us so book early.
