Drive down the private street to your new vacation home. Walk in the front door and be amazed at the size and openness. You and your guests will enjoy making meals together like it is a holiday. Dining room seating can be over 19 if you open the door to the three season room. How about having Maryland Crabs at that table! Laughter, love and making unforgettable memories are sure to abound at Craig's Coastal Cottage. Our mission in designing this home was to make it a place where people can come together and make their time count. Something as easy as making morning coffee can be done while laughing with your friends. How about those moms and grandmoms who have older children. It is hard to get them all together in one place. But not here. Plenty of room for multiple families and very private bedrooms makes this home a haven for all. Each bedroom is placed far from one another so when family time needs a break privacy is not an issue.

The Master Bedroom is located on the first floor with a King Bed. Master Bath has dual sinks, jacuzzi tub and stand up shower. Just outside the Master is a large family room with three pull-out sofas. This was designed in mind for parents with small children. Having the kids upstairs may be far away but on vacation you want your privacy so in your room is to close. Therefore, how about put them just a few steps away but on the other side of a closed door?

Upstairs you can get into a Queen Bed. Relax in front of the cable TV or light a candle and open your favorite book and relax on the gliding chair. How about holding your baby on your lap and read them a book.

On the opposite side on the home is a Full sized bed with a set of twin bunks. Why not put the kids in there where they can hang out and have one big sleepover!

An oversized bathroom rests in between the bedrooms. Just off of the bathroom is a large playroom/den. Again this was placed here with the idea of the kids having a place to go while the adults relax and get some adult time. Suited with a Pirate Bed and plenty of floor space the kids have room to put their toys and enjoy for hours.

Come home from a day at the beach and shower in the great outdoors. Nothing like looking up at the big blue sky while taking a shower in the outside private shower.

Dinner Time?!

A master builder was hired to hand make every cabinet with great attention to detail. A six burner gas stove is any cooks dream. Dishwasher, convection oven, microwave, refrigerator/freezer grace the kitchen as well. Feel like cooking outdoors. Natural gas hookup makes this grill a cinch. While grilling you won't be alone. A patio and deck with chairs are there for your friends to join you.

Hop down to downtown Bethany Beach. 2.5 miles from home. Far enough to have quite but close enough to enjoy the free concerts, movies on the beach, eateries and action.

Another option is to pack up their car with all of your beach gear : coolers, toys, boards etc. only one time during your stay. Within minutes you are at Fenwick State Park. Parking is only 10$ for 24 hours or 70$ for a year pass which will get you into any DE state park by the way. You can come and go as you please. No walking involved to get to the beach. You park your there. The park is a guarded beach with concessions. I like to enjoy a beverage at the 4 o'clock hour everyday. They have showers, bathrooms, chair and umbrella rentals etc.

We are about 14 miles from Rehoboth's boardwalk, 12 miles from Ocean City MD boardwalk and 2 .5 miles from Bethany Beach boardwalk. Rehoboth's outlets are also available as well as all the dining, and summer fun available at any vacation spot.

About The Owner

I love to read, clean and be with my family. My peaceful place is sitting in front of the roaring ocean. Nature excites me. I truly enjoy making people feel loved and special. That is why I enjoy renting my home so I can extend those feelings while you are with us and hopefully when you are not. My goal is to get a client base that repeatedly comes back and you feel like this is your home also.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Frankford

This home was designed and built by my father. He wanted his family to have a place to come and stay with him where we would be comfortable. In 2011 he had to move back to PA for health reasons. We decided we didn't want this home to go out of our family as his signature is all over it. We have loved coming down with my dad even though the roles are reversed. Now I have to cook for him. HAHA

What makes this house unique

One unique benefit to this home is a non tangible. It is peaceful and comforting. When people come they want to come back. Not so much for the beauty or convenience, even though it has all of those things. They say they just like being here. They look forward to it every year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The mailing address for this very modern 'cottage' says Frankford, but it is actually located just 1 mile west of Sea Colony Bethany Beach - you can drive to downtown Bethany Beach in just a couple of minutes. Very open floor plan with beautiful kitchen, yet the three bedrooms are all located apart from one another for enhanced privacy . The house is fully as advertised - very clean - and everything in the house works well. New outside shower comes in handy after a day at the beach! Did not hear one sound from the neighboring houses throughout our stay - quiet neighborhood.

The house was very nice. Very spacious and roomy. The upstairs bathroom posed a problem because the small room could not be accessed if the bathroom was in use Therewere a few things that needed to be addressed. The cleaning crew left a dirty pan in the oven which left a smell in the oven and madr it un-useable. And dirty sheets were left on the pull out couch The downstairs tub was extremely slow to drain. Those things aside I recommend staying there.

  • 5 of 5

The house its self was very nice. Everything you need and more. 5 minutes to the beach. The air was not working great upstairs as soon as i informed them of the situation they had someone come to the house immediately. Within an hour everything was fixed. The owner is very nice. Its a great home to take a large family. I will be looking to rent again next year.
