Overview

About the property

3 BEDROOM plus loft with full bath- 4 1/2 baths, 5 balconies, 3000 square feet

Cross the brand new Indian River Inlet Bridge on Route 1 and look West past the RV PARK AND CAMPGROUND to our 'POINT OF LAND' projecting into the INDIAN RIVER BAY ALONG THE FISHERMAN'S INLET. Here, beyond the gate lies a community of 22 huge single family homes and 21 private 3000+ - square foot condos with an 82 slip BEAUTIFULLY REDONE MARINA to the South, tennis court and POOL to the East and FISHING IN THE INLET to the North.

Our condo faces the BAY, just behind a rock jetty that constricts all the tidal waters as they rush in and out with the tides. Hundreds of boats pass by each of your 3 private balconies on their way to the Atlantic Ocean, to anchor and fish in the inlet or motor around to an off shore sandbar. Plenty to watch or just bike to the FABULOUS NEWLY FINISHED Delaware State Park and Beach under the bridge where full changing facilities and parking spaces allow you to enjoy the lifeguarded beach.

Also, THE BIG CHILL opened in 2017 and is the place to be all summer long and is located over the showers at the state park.....so you can all walk to and from the venue along the inlet.

TWO bedrooms fitted with King size beds and TWO bedrooms (one is a loft) fitted with double beds. ALL BEDROOMS HAVE THEIR OWN FULL PRIVATE BATHROOMS.

NOTE***There is a crib in one of the bayside master bedrooms, a youth bed and an inflatable queen bed which accounts for the home being able to sleep 8 to 10 to 12 counting use of the aforementioned items. Free private wireless internet.

We also have a linen company that provide linens; sheets, towels, bath mats and pillowcases for just $45. This is a must purchase in the interest of everyone's cleanliness....no exceptions. All you have to do is read the tags on the shrink-wrapped bundles and put them on the right bed.

Need a second place for a large group--my neighbors and I cooperate to make it happen!

There are TVs and DVDs in all 4 bedrooms. A 42' FLAT SCREEN IS IN THE KITCHEN AND A 60" FLAT SCREEN IS IN THE LIVING ROOM.

FOR 2015 WE INSTALLED ALL NEW PLUSH CARPETING THROUGHOUT, KITCHEN FLOORING AND A NEW REFRIGERATOR WITH WATER AND ICE THROUGH THE DOOR.

The condo rents year round for Saturday to Saturday weeks from May to September and long 3 night weekends or special get-a-ways during the shoulder season.

A nice group of families vacationed with us in beginning in 2012 at this home AND at our other home on the ocean at Sea Colony VRBO461838. Bookings for the following year actually begin coming in in July as people come back again or have learned you really get what you pay for when you wait too long.…….Please see CALENDAR AND RATE TAB as we keep them up to date.

BOOKING IS SIMPLE. You can scroll down to the week you want, see the fee and request a quote. Or you can hit the BOOK IT NOW button and you can then do the credit card payment.

The Salt Pond Golf Club is a few miles away off route 1 302-539-7525

About Rosanne and Chad Morris

HI, We are Chad and Rosanne and we love the Delaware shore. Super fast 4 lane highways to get here, clean beaches and warm clean water, and nice people... Plus, there is no sales tax on purchases or on this rental …and yes, you can find all the honkey tonk you want in nearby Dewey Beach and Ocean City, Md.

Since Delaware is Joe Biden's state he made sure all the highways were ready for fast access, cheap gas

and $1 or $2 tolls. VP Biden just completed the super fast flyover interchange at route 1 and I95 so you move fast. Apple has a megastore right there so save sales tax at the Christiana mall at the Route 1 flyover.

Summers of 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 AND 2017 WERE HEAVILY BOOKED BEGINNING AS EARLY AS AUGUST FOR THE FOLLOWING YEAR SO BE FOREWARNED.....and many weekends in the Spring and Fall will be gone.....it is so interesting in the off season.

Note, the little specks in the Google picture are boats moving through the Inlet or just sitting and fishing....plenty to watch all day long before the spectacular sunset and then the moon reflecting on the bay all night long.

Look up to the sky and watch all the jets going north and south at 35,000 feet high.

Hope you can be with us this year!!!!

NOTE TO OVERSEAS TRAVELERS...This is a great stop over place after visiting Washington DC as you can have some beach time and then travel to Philadelphia and New York City.

Why Rosanne and Chad Morris chose Delaware

Our property faces the Bay at the Inlet

and provides the BEST SUNSETS, the BEST FISHING, the BEST WARM WATER, a GREAT ACTIVE MARINA and overall vacation experience in the area. Plus with the state of Delaware spending millions to make the STATE PARK a must see for nature and wildlife; this place is tops in all categories. CAMPING FAMILIES WILL ENJOY THE NEARBY STATE CAMPGROUND AND RV PARK WHILE 'THE SENIOR' RELATIVES SUCH AS GRAMMY AND POP POP CAN STAY WITH US......AND WHEN IT RAINS GUESS WHO BE BE AT THE DOOR?

Plan on running 25 miles down to Assataegue National Park to see the wild ponies running along the roads, forrest and beach. A fun day for families.

What makes this condo unique

Musical concerts at Rehoboth and Bethany town center all summer with fireworks on the 4th.

BE SURE TO DRIVE SLOWLY on the access road as TURTLES AND OTHER CREATURES are actively crossing.

Be sure to greet the fishing boats as they come in with their catch from 60-90 miles out in the ocean. Better yet go along on a charter for the day...ask around.

Rent a JET SKI for an hour or two in Dewey Beach and have a blast with 5 or 6 of them. Low tide means many boats and watercraft head to the sandbars for picnics out in the bay.

Hungry ones head to town for the best restaurants

you can ever imagine and for the great prices.

Herons and sea birds feed at the rock jetty about sunset.

Delaware runs a huge attraction on the north side of the Inlet with wildlife lectures, a complete marina with boat launches, gas and pump out facilities including winter storage plus a great restaurant.

Need to catch something off our jetty? Cut some chicken into slivers and get going or drop our two crab traps in the water and see what comes in.

Just in case you find the week you want is not available with us, feel free to double check to make sure the reservation CALENDAR is correct. BE SURE TO ALSO CHECK OUT OUR OTHER HOME AT VRBO461838 JUST 5 MILES SOUTH OF THE INDIAN RIVER INLET.

THE WHITE MARLIN OPEN WILL BE IN AUGUST

Boat slips are readily available with electric so inquire about this as well. The marina was totally redone in 2014.

Great property on the bay with awesome sunset views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week next to the marina. Chad was sure to check in to ensure we arrived ok and had no issues getting in the door, which was greatly appreciated. The welcome package we received prior to our vacation contained all the information we could ever need about the property and surrounding areas. You can tell Chad and Rosanne put a lot of time and thought into it, and it was very helpful. The property was spotless when we arrived and had plenty of space for our family of 4 with two kids. The sunsets are amazing from any of the back balconies overlooking the bay. The kids loved watching all the boats come and go from the marina. Two minute drive to the State Park beach access, or take a nice walk if you don't have much to carry. The location is perfect for easy access to Rehoboth, Dewey, or downtown Bethany. We would not hesitate to stay here again!

Owner's Response: John, we could not have said it better. Thank you so much and glad you had a wonderful time. Do come see us again or perhaps go to our beach front condo at Sea Colony VRBO461838. Also, we have many friends in the area who likewise do a limited number of weekly rentals so if we are booked just ask and we can check around. Rosanne

WONDERFUL!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect. Sharing with 4 teenagers was no problem, as everyone had their own space. The sunset views were phenomenal. We were close to great restaurants, but off the beaten path. Enjoyed the peace and quiet. The only drawback was lots of steps.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great time and thanks for posting a review. Yes, there are many very interesting restaurants in the area including THE BIG CHILL which is an easy walk along the Inlet. Reverse floor plans do add lots of steps but it gets you up higher for the bay and marina views...do come back as you were a delight to have. Weeks for 2018 are already being booked. Rosanne

Spectacular Property by Indian River

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two children and their spouses spent a wonderful week together at this property. The large condo had everything we needed and more. We watched the beautiful sunsets while relaxing on the deck, fished the inlet waters, enjoyed the short ride the the beach, sat by the pool, played tennis and rode bike. The house is nicely decorated and has many places to sit, read a book, watch TV, play games and chill together as a family. We did go up to the Rehoboth Escape Room which we enjoyed very much! The owners did a great job communicating details to us and we will rent from them again if given the opportunity.

A wonderful family vacation on the bay

  • 5 of 5

Chad and Rosanne, thank you for sharing your beautiful condo on the bay with our family!! We had such a wonderful, relaxing week! This was our first family vacation to Bethany with our adult children and their families and one we hope to repeat!! Your condo location was perfect from start to finish: beautiful bay views, gorgeous sunsets from the balconies, fireworks across the inlet, quiet times for reading indoors and outside on the lawn and easy drives to local restaurants, the beaches both north and south and the shopping outlets in Rehoboth. Though we didn't have a boat, there was ample room to dock one at the marina. We loved the comfortable and beautiful condo decor. Our grown children kept remarking about the privacy of all the bedrooms and individual bathrooms and your dining area and large kitchen were so well stocked, we felt right at home. Thank you too Chad for always being available to answer any of our questions and for providing a welcome binder with all information that we needed to know during our stay. All in all, you can see we thoroughly loved your home and look forward to returning in the future! Thank you, Jim and Lois and family

FABULOUS!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect family Fall Get-Away. Open layout with plenty of bedrooms & bathrooms. We enjoyed watching the boats on the inlet and in the marina. I was up at 6:15 am and saw the most beautiful Moon Set. The moon lit up the inlet and went down on the horizon. It was huge, like the sun going down. I never saw anything like it. I had a great view off of the living room deck. We had a wonderful week and hope to come again soon. The owners, Chad & Roseanne were wonderful.

Owner's Response: Yes, you were wonderful guests and the first to write about the "moon set." It is absolutely fabulous and does light up the entire bay. Do come again. Rosanne
