Overview

About the property

Townhome, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

One of the best features of our home is its location. Our home is just mere steps to the boardwalk and beach; one block from downtown Bethany. Convenient to everything you could possibly need or want while you are on vacation without having to get into your car! Going back and forth from the beach for lunch or relief from the sun is never a problem since you are just mere steps from home. You won’t have any parking headaches, because once you arrive, everything is within walking distance. Bethany Beach is a family oriented town; the boardwalk and downtown areas are clean, safe and full of fun shops, eateries and activities.

Our home is great for families. The large dining table and living room are ideal spots for big family meals followed by lively card and board games. The outside showers are great for showering off those sandy kids. The kitchen has everything you may need to prepare a great dinner. Our large outside deck and gas grill provides a great area for a family barbecue or a crab feast!

We have 2 King Master Bedrooms with Private Bathrooms; one has a Private Balcony; the Twin room has 2 twin size beds; the 'Bunk Room' has a Pyramid Bunk (Full bed on bottom and a Twin on the top) and 1 Twin bed; in the loft there is a Daybed. In the Living Room there is a Stereo System, Flat Screen TV and DVD Player. The Kitchen is spacious and has everything you need to prepare a meal. The Deck off the Main Level has a Gas Grill and Patio Furniture making it perfect for entertaining outside. There is a Wet Bar on the Main Level with an additional Ice Maker. The home has a Washer and Dryer and 2 Outdoor Showers.

This is the ideal get away for families that like to relax and have fun! Our home is spacious and convenient to everything that makes Bethany Beach the BEST family beach destination.

You can walk into Bethany for fantastic restaurants and shopping or take a short drive to Dewey for it's famous nightlife. Plenty of Amusement Parks are in Ocean City, MD just 15 minutes to the south and tax free Outlet Shopping in Rehoboth is just 20 minutes to the north.

About Chuck Cross

Native to the Washington DC area, we have spent our summers at Bethany for the past 30 years. After spending several years as a lifeguard in Bethany it was a thrill for us to see our kids enjoying the beach, spending their summers working as a lifeguard and as 'Steen Girls' renting umbrellas and chairs. Bethany is a great family town.

Chuck Cross purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Chuck Cross chose Delaware

If you are going to the beach, you should be able to look out your window and see the ocean or walk a block and get an ice cream cone. This home is steps to the beach with fantastic views and there is no place better for a family vacation than Bethany Beach

What makes this townhome unique

Park your car and leave it. Everything is within walking distance of this IN Town Home. Walk to great restaurants, Dickie's Ice cream, Surf's Up Subs and Pizza or the new miniature golf. If a cloud shows up, the Rehobeth Outlet Malls are just a short drive away. For a night out of partying, Dewey beach is 15 miles north, or take the shuttle from Mango's and leave the driving to someone else!!

Don't look any further - this is the place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 has stayed at the Sea Colony for many years but found we have outgrown it with 4 adults and 3 kids ages 14, 12 & 11. We decided to try a VRBO and found this gem. So much room, everyone had space to spread out. The decks and views are amazing, did yoga on the top deck, spent family time on the main deck. Such easy access to the beach and Bethany boardwalk and restaurants. Table in the kitchen easily seats our group with no crowding. Love the outside showers for those sandy children and storage for beach "stuff". Able to get our runs or 5 mile walks in every morning - so close to the trails and tree lined roads on the other side of the busy main thoroughfare - no more running with the traffic! Very close to our paddle boarding stop. We were able to park our car and leave it for days on end - quite a treat! Parking was fine and delightful to access it right outside our door. Honestly, this worked so well for us, wish we had found it sooner. Our only less than wonderful comment is the wifi was very spotty - became an issue for those during "down" time and nights. Beyond that - perfect! (Of course, I should probably hesitate to be too effusive in case this becomes "the" place and I find it impossible to rent again :>))

Thank you Cross family for sharing your home with our family - we loved it!

The property was at the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Enough bedrooms for our our family and easy acces to the beach for our 79 year old father. Walking Distance to many great places and restaurants allowed us to leave our car parked for most of our vacation. The 3 decks were amazing!

Great house just a small glitch.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The only issue we had was that the upstairs AC decided to stop working on the two hottest days so it was a bit toasty until the temps dropped. We were able to change our plans to be there for repair man. The owners responded promptly when I messaged. Just threw a few kinks in our trip, but we still love the house! Beautiful views and close to everything we needed.

Wonderful House with amazing location.

  • 4 of 5

Location is superb. Just walk into the beach. We had stunning weather in September and almost no crowds. We made great use of the multiple porches and watched the super moon at night. Thanks.

COMFORTABLE UNIT W/ THREE DECKS AND A PERFECT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5

After researching many properties, we were swayed by the location and description of 95 A. The owners were great to deal with and we were given all of the information regarding our stay in anticipation of our requests Upon arrival, we discovered the unit clean, cool and ready for us, as described. There was a very well thought out welcome book for our reference. We have been coming to Bethany for many years, and still found useful, current information. If your unfamiliar with the area, the book is a must! We also received an email requesting us to let them know about any problems or questions we had upon arrival. We found no immediate issues.

The layout was great for our group which included my three teen grandkids. The location allowed them the freedom to enjoy the beach and sites and activities of downtown Bethany without us having to drive them, or worry about them biking a distance across major highways. This made everyone's vacation more enjoyable. It was also great to be only steps away for lunch, and a break from the sun.

There were eight of us some of the time and seven most of the time. Because of the gender and relationships, we found the sleeping accommodations for the most part comfortable. There are two very nice master suites with private baths, and one with a balcony. The bunk room will sleep three or four (two twins and a double). The pullout in the living room had a very comfortable queen, but of course whoever sleeps there must be willing to rise early enough to make the bed back to a couch in the morning. The upstairs loft could serve as an additional bed, but the fourth level was very hot. The week we stayed it was in the mid to upper 90's and although the rest of the house was comfortable, the top floor was uncomfortable even with the fans.

The only negative I might mention would be that because the unit is so great, I am sure is always rented, leaving no time in season for sprucing up. The drains were slow, which I am sure is a continual problem at the beach, and the washer/dryer was probably in need of servicing. I'm sure these things are addressed at the end of the season, and did not hinder our great vacation!

We had a great time and look forward to enjoying this location next year. We will absolutely recommend it to our friends ( once we get our reservation down!)

Owner's Response: Linda, thanks for your kind comments. It is obvious you did a lot of research before deciding on our home and we are happy that we did not disappoint. We are glad you and your family had a great time. It was an extraordinarily hot week so I hope the fan in the loft helped cool it a bit and the rest of the home was comfortable. We do spend a great deal of time in the off season addressing maintenance issue we cannot get to during the season without disturbing our guests but we appreciate you informing us of anything that needs attention. We will have maintenance look into the slow drain this weekend however and see if that is something we can take care of it short order. We look forward to having you back next year!!

A Great Summer Week - Wonderful House; Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year in this house. It is well-kept and it has great features. The roof-top deck provided a great view of the ocean and the Fourth of July fireworks. The house is right off of the board walk and one block from downtown Bethany. The quality and convenience are outstanding. I would recommend this house.
