Lovely and Cozy, a Must-Stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, homey location beaming with fun prospects. Plenty of beds(don't forget to bring sheets!) and amenities for usage. Grocery stores are close(<1 mile) and small shopping strips are replete in the area and make for nice diversions should the weather turn sour. The beach is extremely close(maybe 3 blocks away) and we managed to see some dolphins playing out past the surf at midday. I highly recommend this intimate home for a gathering of close friends(as we did), but it would surely support a family for a week or then some. The screened-in porch is where we spent most of our time and I wouldn't have it any other way. Thanks, Patti, for a rewarding experience and the memories that prospered there.

All the conveniences of home.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. As city dwellers, we were happy to have all the conveniences of home available and functional ie, washer/dryer, airconditioning, ceiling fans, excellent water pressure, fully loaded kithchen (dishwasher, blender, microwave, toaster, refridgerator of course) Need I go on? You get the gist. Oh!! and the extras: screened in porch, traditional outside grill and a gas grill. Lastly, the outside shower was the "icing on the cake." We city poeple have to have every grain of sand removed before going out to eat, LoL Again, we were happy with our entire experience and look forward to booking our next stay.

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.
