Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Two families, 15 people, 13 adults aged 24+ & 2 children under age 6....home is large enough, you have your own private space and never felt like you were on top of one another. The home is on a private road, with maybe 10 homes. There are no homes on either side or across the street, so you really feel like your are secluded. We loved it. All the bedrooms are very large and it is a very open house inside. The home has everything you need! Fantastic in-ground pool with plenty of deck space for relaxing. Seven lounge chairs to stretch out & sun bathe or 8 chairs to sit & dry off after your time in the pool. In addition there is a table with an umbrella and 4 chairs on the patio, next to the screened in porch, which has a nice large table with 6 chairs. Also in the back yard is a sand volleyball court & a horseshoe pit which we used everyday. In the front yard there is a basketball hoop. The home also has 6-7 bikes (2 small bikes for the kids) and beach chairs to use. There are also a number of inflatable pool balls, volleyball net and rafts. We drove to the beach, although you could walk. We found it easier to drive & load the van with the chairs, beach blankets, towels, cooler with food & drinks and our 10 x 10 canopy tent. We HIGHLY recommend this home for your family vacation!

Beautiful house! We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

What a great house for large groups or family reunions. We absolutely loved this house and we will be back! The rooms are all wonderful sizes. We hope to rent again in the warmer weather and take advantage of outdoor pool and volley ball court. The kitchen was very well stocked. The theater room is amazing. All of the bedrooms were large and the number of beds in the whole sale is awesome!

We had a GREAT Winter Weekend in Bethany Beach!

Awesome place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is easily the best I've ever seen. Our family filled every bed, but it was so spacious, you'd never know there were that many people living there for the week. It was huge- the pictures don't do it justice. There were so many places to hang out- the pool, screened in porch, deck, living room, dining room, movie room. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware, and the rooms had plenty of storage space. It's obvious this house is well taken care of. It is a bit of a walk to the beach, but they even had bikes we could use. It was just wonderful!

A great place to make memories

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented the Toy Box for a fall extended family getaway, and it worked out to be even better than our expectations. Considering we've been renting different houses for 11 years running for this same group, that's quite a feat!

First, the house was even larger than the pictures and description make it appear, as other reviews have mentioned. The very high ceilings add to the effect, resulting in a great wide-open feel. One of the bedrooms that we couldn't quite figure out from the description was almost twice as large as we expected; with an en-suite bathroom, a queen, a double+twin bunk and two separate twin beds in their own "nook" it absorbs large family units with ease.

Ours was a Fall visit, so we didn't get to make use of the pool or the outdoor shower, but the Volleyball court and Horseshoe pit were used, and the kids had a lot of fun with the provided bikes and sports equipment.

The Kitchen, normally the bane of our existence when renting a house, was exceptional. Well-stocked with pots, pans, serving utensils, plates, bowls, cups, and more, and two good sized ovens for cooking for crowds. We sat 9 at the kitchen table, and 4 on the kitchen island, and saved the Dining Room table for card games, puzzles and other things that we normally scramble to find surface areas for.

The house was in excellent condition and clean and ready for us, and Tom called to check-in the day after arrival to ensure we were finding everything we needed. The home theater received an enormous amount of use, with at least one movie every day we were there, and all the normal haggling over kids (and adults) wanting to watch their own shows were non-existent due to the vast number of TVs in bedrooms and other areas.

The Wifi, a key point for the teens, had no issues.. .but even they spent less time on it than they expected, as there was so much else to see and do in the area. Convenience-wise, two large grocery stores and dozens of restaurants are nearby, making stocking up and going out simple and quick.

In all the years we've been renting houses, this is the first time where we truly found everything we were looking for and then some. Now everyone is suddenly talking about going back over the summertime!

The Toy Box has a permanent place in our hearts!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Bethany Beach to celebrate our Mom's 70th birthday and also have a family reunion. The house was PERFECT! We had a large group and not once did we feel crowded. The pictures don't do the Toy Box is HUGE! The floor plan is very open on the first floor and the bedrooms are gigantic. The second floor has a huge hallway, where many of our kids spent time playing cards and other games. There was plenty of space for everyone to find something that they liked to do (swimming in the pool, watching movies in the awesome theater room, playing volleyball outside, playing monopoly in the screened porch, or sunning on the patio). Another problem that we usually have with our large group is having enough places for everyone to sit...that was not a problem at the Toy Box. The owners have set the house up with plenty of seating and additional chairs available as well in the garage. There is adequate seating both inside and outside of the house. Also, the owner was EXTREMELY responsive. He called midweek to make sure everything was ok with our visit, which we have NEVER had an owner do on previous vacations. Thanks Tom, for everything. Your house will FOREVER hold a place in our hearts!
