About Janice

My family and I have been going to Bethany Beach for decades now and enjoy many special memories that quickly come to mind of times with family and friends!

When I was very young, we rented different places. At the age of 10, my dad decided to buy our first place. It was simple, quaint, and provided lots of family work weekends for us growing up. Later, we acquired this current property which is well-suited for all year 'round.

When we began traveling to Bethany Beach, it was not a very well-known place. In the off-season, we had to go quite a ways to get groceries or to go shopping in general. But over the years, Bethany has become one of the most sought after locations for families visiting the beaches on the coastline. It is well-kept, clean, friendly, family-oriented, and now there are many shopping opportunities, grocery stores, and fun activities to do very close by.

Personally, I prefer the off-season because I am not into the main beach kind of activities like sunbathing or swimming in the ocean. I like to take long walks down to the WWII fort in nearby Fenwick, buy special beach treats such as frozen custard on the boardwalk, caramel corn, or D.B. French Fries, and, I also enjoy venturing to closeby state parks for biking or picnicking among the horses.

Bethany is the central beach so most attractions are within 10-15 miles on either side of it if you want to venture outside of Bethany itself. However, there is SO MUCH TO DO within Bethany and within walking distance, --including a very nice library! News this year is about a Ropes Course in town!

Janice purchased this townhome in 1986

Why Janice chose Bethany Beach

Hidden Harbour is unique to all the other locations in Bethany. One of my realtor friends in Bethany tells me that she has surveyed every property in town and outside of town for over the last 3 decades or more,... and she explains that she has found nothing better than our community at Hidden Harbour because of its one-of-a-kind features:

The HUGE grassy yard outside is unlike anything else that you will see if you rent in Bethany Beach. It's great for the kids to play in as you sit on the deck and watch.

Playing ball, throwing a frisbee, and even flying a kite are frequent outdoor activities enjoyed by many right on our property.

The tennis court (2017) and in-season pool facility (2016) add more to your family get away!

Hidden Harbour is ALSO located along a beautiful canal which resides next to the tennis court. Different varieties of birds can be watched, and people

enjoy crabbing, or slipping a canoe or a kayak in the water.

One can walk everywhere in Bethany from Hidden Harbour because we are actually located inside the town limits.

For those who want a scenic tour, a colorful trolley will pick you up from the bench outside to wind you through neighborhoods outside of town and then take you downtown to the boardwalk for .25/person. Very quaint and memorable.

What makes this townhome unique

Enjoy the beach in the morning and the in-season pool in the afternoon. Exercise while playing tennis or taking a long walk. Local bike rentals can take you even further on a new excursion down the road or over the Indian River. Our place is well-kept, feels like home, and is frequently updated even with suggestions from those who visit and stay.

You may want to ask me more questions... please do not hesitate!

Our stay brought back many memories !

  • 5 of 5

Janice was wonderful. We share the love of the beach and family. I should have done this review immediately after we left but I am getting old. The property was well kept, we loved the trolley and the walk to beach was easy. We recommend this home with no reservation.

Great week in Bethany Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Super easy check-in. Very spacious home with a nice layout and comfortable furnishings. Location is very convenient to Bethany boardwalk, restaurants and shops, yet removed enough to be quiet and peaceful. The townhome is right on the trolley line. We would walk into town in the evening; eat, shop, listen to the bandstand performances and people watch. If we were too tired we could ride the trolley home. Very convenient. We enjoyed the back deck for cocktails and dinners. Wide beach is just a short walk away. Not crowded at all even during a prime vacation week. Wonderful vacation.

Welcome to The Cozy Sands at Hidden Harbour in Bethany Beach, Delaware! Unique property with space inside and out within memorable family resort town limits.

Bethany Beach is the very nice small family beach located between commercialized Ocean City and Rehoboth Beach. Really, there is nothing else around like this exceptional family beach where one feels both safe and provided for by so many available services and activities.

Also, there is no sales tax when you go shopping in Delaware!

During the summer, enjoy weekly Monday Movie Nights on the beach, Thursday Bonfire Nights on the beach, and Live Music on Fridays, Saturdays, and even Sundays.

We just love it!
