I stayed at the cottage to celebrate my birthday the last week in August and had a fantastic time. The house has everything you need and I really enjoyed the screened in porch and the outdoor shower. Close enough to town to walk, lots of cute shops and restaurants. I'll definitely be back!

Enjoyed the cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the cottage. Although cozy it still felt like plenty of room for the 9 of us. We had one rainy day due to a tropical storm but still had fun playing games inside and exploring some local shops. Nice screened porch with 2 ceiling fans and comfortable furniture. Only stayed for long weekend but look forward to coming back for a full week next summer. I really liked walking the boardwalk along the beach. Bethany beach and town has a sweet peaceful atmosphere, very easy to relax.

Lovely reasonable priced family beach house

  • 4 of 5

Lovely family beach house with room for large family gathering (beds for 11) for a reasonable price! Walking distance to the beach yet tucked away in a quiet street far from noise. Close to all attractions and great places for dinner. Homeowner is very responsive and friendly to work with. Outdoor shower is, indeed, a beautiful experience. We barely had our showers in the house, we all lined up for the outdoor shower. We spent most of our time in the house on the screened porch having breakfast, dinner, playing board games etc. Bring your linen for the beds. We plan to go back!

Great value!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd stay here. Once again we had a great vacation!

The house is spacious and you can't beat the price. Easy walk to the beach (my 5 year old didn't complain) and a quiet street (block ends at the canal) so the kids could ride their bikes. Evening were spent on the awesome screened in porch when we weren't enjoying the many family friendly activities that Bethany offers.

We look forward to returning next year.

Location, Location, Location--Nice Beach Getaway

  • 4 of 5

You can not beat the location of this wonderful beach cottage! Only 3 blocks from the ocean and 3 blocks from the shops and restaurants in Bethany! Located on a nice quiet street. Home is older, but well maintained. Plenty of room, it was just my husband and I. Great for us to get away and relax. The back patio is wonderful to sit out at night with the lights!

Outstanding Experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay in Bethany Beach and the home was perfect. There are two nice size bedrooms upstairs with a half bath and washer and dryer. Downstairs there are two additional bedrooms along with the living room, dine in kitchen and a great screened in porch. We ate all our meals outside on the porch and loved it!

We have small children and they were able to handle the 10-15 minute walk to the beach just fine. If they were tired, an adult could easily walk back to the house and pick up the car and return to get everyone. You can always pay for parking near the beach if you prefer.

The owner is easy to work with and answered all our questions quickly and clearly.

We highly recommend this property for your vacation stay.
