About the property

House, 3 bedrooms, 1 sofa bed, 2.5 baths and 3-season porch (sleeps 8)

Salt Pond Golf Club with Community Center, Pools, Tennis, etc. (Saturday check-in during the summer months; otherwise, you can check in on any day of week)

This cozy, one-story home is located in a community with an 18-hole, par-61 golf course and is about 2 miles from the beach. Enjoy Salt Pond's amenities for a fun golf getaway or a week at the beach. There are plenty of activities for the whole family. A short walk from the house, the community center offers outdoor swimming pools, indoor pool and hot tub (only during winter), well-equipped fitness center, tennis, basketball, sandlot volleyball and more. Nearby is a launching area for small boats for access to the Salt Pond (and to the network of canals that connect to the neighboring inlets and eventually to the ocean) and plenty of tree-lined streets and paths for walking, running or biking. The golf pro shop is about a 10 minute walk.

The house is spacious throughout. The family room has vaulted ceilings, bright lights and plenty of sitting room (we purchased all new furniture for this room in March 2017). Depending on your mood, you may choose to relax watching cable TV or DVDs on either of the two flat screen TVs, in the screened-in porch or instead you may wish to take advantage of the business center, which has a computer and printer and high-speed internet access with a wireless network.

We have 3 bedrooms, all of which have new box springs and mattresses (Feb 2017). The master bedroom has a queen bed, a large dresser and closets. Its bathroom has a shower with handles for safer access. The second bedroom has a king bed with a large dresser and closet. With a cable outlet and new television, this bedroom is perfect for kids and adults alike. This bedroom shares a large bathroom with the third bedroom, which has two twin beds and an armoire closet. The sofa bed in the living room is new and has a VERY comfortable foam mattress.

The bright kitchen is large and well equipped. With early-day sun and pleasant view of trees and the cul-de-sac, the kitchen is a nice place to be, whether you're preparing or enjoying a meal. With seating for a total 13 both at the table and the bars, the kitchen is big enough for large groups.

If you prefer to entertain elsewhere, the screened-in porch and the backyard offer nice alternatives. The 3-season porch is beautiful (remodeled in April 2016) and ideally suited as a pleasant sitting room for lively discussions or reading under the fan on the new furniture (purchased September 2015). This room offers floor-to-ceiling views to the open space and trees through crystal clear vinyl windows, which are easy to completely lower and raise, depending on how much breeze you want. The backyard has a patio with charcoal grill and plenty of space for the kids to run and play. Kids can also let loose in the cul-de-sac in the front of the house, which has almost no traffic and is within easy sight from the kitchen.

We also installed a new Air Conditioning unit in 2012 and a new water heater in April 2016.

Bethany Beach is named the 'Quiet Resort' and has a family atmosphere. There are amusement parks, many great restaurants and nightclubs, and bay water activities. Rehobeth Beach is ten minutes to the north and offers discount outlet malls, more great restaurants, and tree-lined streets. Ocean City and Assateague Island are directly south.

Families or couples preferred and pets are allowed on a case-by-case basis. The check-in is Saturday for weekly rentals. Please call for partial week availability.

Note: The facility fee for use of the amenities in the community center is about $80 (2013) for a pass of 20 “uses” (1 “use” allows 1 person all day use of facilities which equates to $4/person per day) -- cost subject to change. Greens fees are separate but reasonable. Navigate to the URL below the rate section and click on the 'The Salt Pond Golf Course' tab for golf details.

Address: 1 Heron Court, Bethany Beach, DE 19930

Keywords: House, near ponds, pets, clean, secluded, salt pond community, beach house, golf course,

Note: the gas fireplace and jets in the jetted tub are not functioning right now

Also note that we do not provide linens or towels, so you'll need to either bring them yourself or arrange to rent them from any of the local companies that provide them. Two options are Sheets at the Beach and Grand Rental Station. Please work with them directly to meet your needs. Thanks!.

Nice house in Salt Pond with Indoor Pool/Spa, Exercise room and Easy Golf course

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this property for a week getaway and found it was a great location, community with trees for walks and biking / close by parks and good value for a 3 BR - one floor house . You can walk a few blocks to golf ($23 - 18 holes with cart), pool/spa/exercise club ($4 per visit on a tenant guest card) and the beach is 2 miles away (beach boardwalk is about 3.5 miles). The garage holds one full size car - not like others for storage and bikes. I liked the fact that three sides of the house had plenty of space and trees between the neighbors and open green space in the back with an outside table and good size screened porch. Also, it was quite both daytime and night there.

Everything worked well especially the AC/Heat,home office computer, kitchen appliances, and cable TV. They just needed to replace the light bulbs in the garage and gas up the fireplace. To sum, pleasant stay and we planning on renting it again in 2014.

Comfy and cozy stay

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a relaxing comfortable home in a quiet cozy community this is a great home to rent. It has a great layout - we all loved spending time on the enclosed porch!!! Its proximity to Coastal Highway and Millville's Food Lion and Giant made it so convenient. Me, my husband, our son and daughter-in-love really enjoyed our stay. The fact that we could include our Grandpuppy made it that much nicer!!!

Bethany Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This property is located in a great, quiet neighborhood that is close to everything. Perfect setting for walking the dogs as well. Minutes away from all that the Delaware and Ocean City beaches have to offer. The property is clean and the owner is organized and thorough with all the communication aspects of setting up a vacation for your family. We enjoyed the privacy of sitting on the screened in porch in the evenings and just relaxing. The Food Lion, Giant, wine and spirits shoppes, medical center, and restaurants are all within 2.5 miles of the home. The use of the garage is a bonus as well. Everything was as expected and we had a fabulous vacation.

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We spent an enjoyable week at this property, our second visit. The house is exactly as advertised, very clean and organized. Close to the beach and numerous restaurants and shops. It should be noted that the close-by Harris Teeter is closed. but there is a Giant and a Food Lion within a 5 minute drive. Everything in the online description was as advertised and in working order. It is easy to reach the owner, who is very pleasant and easy to work with. The golf course and pool were great! And we really do appreciate that we can bring our dogs! Another great week at the beach!

Beautiful Delaware

  • 4 of 5

We had such a great time at this vacation rental. This is the first time I have ever rented a home for our family.

There were 6 adults, 1 child and 1 toddler. Plenty of room for all of us. The pool, a block away, was lovely, and

very clean. The beaches are absolutely beautiful. The owner always got back to us with any of our concerns.

I would definitely be visiting Delaware again!!
