About Shannon Van Winter

This home is owned by my brother, sister, and I. We are lucky to have kept it in the family. Bethany Beach is such a unique place and want to keep this house forever so that our kids and grandkids can use the house.

Shannon Van Winter purchased this house in 1971

Why Shannon Van Winter chose Delaware

My brother, sister, and I grew up going to Bethany Beach staying at this home on 4th Street in Main Bethany. My parents built it in 1972. In 2012, we did a huge renovation on the home. Everything was taken out and thrown away. We have started fresh, all new furniture, appliances, paint, flooring, carpeting, decking, driveway, EVERYTHING.

What makes this house unique

We love this location because it is so close to main Bethany. We can walk to town to see the entertainment on the stage, walk along the boardwalk, or browse the stores. We like our street because the beaches are not too crowded. It is the second to last street before the private beach starts, somewhat away from the main drag in town. Not too crowded but close enough to town.

Wonderful house, GREAT location...beyond our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just pulled out a few hours ago and I could not wait to write the review. We booked farily last minute and Shannon was so wonderful to work with and most accommodating. Upon arrival the house was spotless clean, and there was more than enough room for our family of four and friends with a family of four who met up with us partway through our stay. We found everything we needed and the kitchen was well equipped with things you would normally have to buy. We spent many hours either relaxing on the back porch, dining, or playing games with the kids. We have been coming to Bethany for years and I would have to say this house was my favorite loaded with all the essentials any family would need and tons of character and charm! The location with close proximity to the beach and town was also perfect for us and we biked everywhere! We really look forward to returning next year!!!

Beautiful house, convenient walk to beach/town...

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed our stay this week. It is a beautiful house and very convenient for a walk to the

Beach or town. It is perfect for me and my son and daughter's families. My only concern was the

Poison ivy on the sides of the trees. We will discuss renting again next year and will contact you.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house in July 2016 and had a great stay. We were a big group - a mix of adults and kids - and the house never felt crowded. The kitchen was great, the living room area was comfortable. We ate dinner on the deck most nights and used the gas grill a few times. The outdoor shower was awesome for rinsing off the sand after walking back from the beach. Town is a few blocks away and we usually walked. The bike shop is just a block or two away, and we rented bikes also.

The beach was never too crowded even though we were there during the 4th of July week.

Would definitely return to this house in the future!

Great family rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this house. We had an extended family..grandpa, three grown children, husbands/wives and five little ladies. We were very comfortable, plenty of room so we never got in each others way. The screened porch with the outside dining table is great (think kid's table!). The bunk bed room was a big hit, and many secret forts were made. The house was well appointed with everything we needed, and the walk to the beach was pleasant. Love this stretch of beach as it is not as crowded as closer to boardwalk, but you can still rent umbrellas. Easy walk downtown as well for the ice cream and fries. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks Rebecca. I think next year we are going to buy a nice umbrella and four quality chairs to leave at the house for renters. Glad you enjoyed our house. Take care, and thanks for taking the time to write the review. Shannon

Beach Fun!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful stay in this beach property. A delightful, comfortable, well-furnished and equipped home. Short walk to the beach on a quiet, lovely street in Bethany. Easy walk also to Downtown which is terrific for kids and the not-so-young among us! Shady lot with easy porch and decks for spreading out and relaxing! We couldn't have asked for more!

Perfect Family Vacation Rental

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at this great beach house for 2 years. The 1st year it had just been renovated. The location is excellent. The screened in porch can't be beat. It's a great house to spend a week at the beach with a family including little kids.
