Overview

About the property

3 BRMS + SLEEPING LOFT, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 9

"...the views were spectacular. Our vacations have not compared since our stay here.''

"Every level of the house gave us fabulous views of the ocean; mesmerizing! We fell asleep listening to the waves crashing!...''

''...the many ocean views and sensation of really being at the beach every moment of our stay - that was what made it extraordinary...''

-- From our guest reviewers on Homeaway & VRBO.

If you vacation at the shore to enjoy the beach, then you've just found the perfect spot in a private, timeless beach home that's been a favorite getaway since the summer of '68....

LOCATION - This northernmost oceanfront home in Bethany Beach literally sits on the sand with the beach at your door and 2800 preserved acres of oceanfront and dunes to the north. Tucked away on one of the most tranquil and scenic spots along the mid-Atlantic with a wide sandy beach and natural, preserved setting, this unique beach home offers the opportunity to truly relax and immerse yourself in the beach experience 24/7 while on vacation.

FIVE PORCHES/DECKS & ENDLESS VIEWS - Beach views, ocean views, Delaware State Seashore views... Watch your family play on the beach just outside, have dinner oceanfront on the screened porch or take in a sunrise over the Atlantic while watching the dolphins swim and the fishermen at the State Seashore reel in their first catch of the day - all without leaving your house!

DIRECT OCEANFRONT - Step off your deck DIRECTLY onto our private beach! No dragging chairs, coolers or kids for blocks or even over a dune crossing and no worries about finding a bathroom, packing up for lunch, or what to do with bored kids who want to go back to the house.

IDEAL LAYOUT INCLUDING TWO OCEANFRONT BEDROOMS EACH WITH THEIR OWN PRIVATE DECK - A spiral staircase leads to two oceanfront bedrooms letting you enjoy miles of unobstructed ocean and dune views and the sounds of surf crashing just outside your door. A great layout for families or two couples since each enjoys their own oceanfront room with beachfront deck or porch and separate bathrooms. The third bedroom is ideal for adults or kids with two additional double beds and the third floor loft offers extra living or sleeping space with a twin daybed plus a pull-out twin trundle. A queen sleep sofa on the first floor provides additional sleeping options.

ACTIVITIES - Beach and Delaware State Seashore just outside your door offering swimming, fishing, jogging and biking, kayaking and surfing plus beach volleyball at our oceanfront community court, private tennis courts, large playground and a private pavilion. Some of the area's best biking and hiking trails and nature centers (Bethany Nature Center, James Farm, Bethany Lifesaving Center). Fantastic seafood restaurant right in the community with a great happy hour and even a walk up window for those nights when you don't feel like cooking! And don't forget to grab a snowcone as the Jeep rolls down Ocean Road in the late afternoon...

OR JUST RELAX - Life truly is a little slower here. If crowds, beach contests and loud parties are your thing, you'll likely find better choices. If you want to slow down a little, relax and make some great memories, you're in the right place and we look forward to hearing from you.

Beds: 1 Queen, 2 doubles, 4 twins (including twin (xlong) daybed & twin trundle), 1 Queen Sleep Sofa.

Ordinarily, we try to keep the rental periods beginning and ending on Sundays, but exceptions are possible, depending on rental demand.

Guests wishing to get a full beach day on check-in/check-out dates can utilize the Delaware State Seashore South Inlet Day Area which is on the ocean 1 mile north of our house and includes a large parking area and facilities including changing rooms, snack bar and a guarded beach (www.destateparks.com).

About Tim G.

A family owned property purchased by three siblings and their spouses whose families have been vacationing at Atlantic Watergate properties for many years, often for the same week renting multiple houses in the complex.

We feel fortunate to be the stewards of this unique and special beach home and to be able to share it with others.

Tim G. purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Tim G. chose Bethany Beach

In the summer of 2010 our family rented this house for a week. We have rented many beach houses over many summers, but for the entire week we were here I said to my wife, 'If we ever were to buy a vacation house, this would be the perfect place.' Amazingly it came on the market in the winter of 2011, and here we are.....

Although all of the Atlantic Watergate properties are terrific, this is a one of a kind end unit that not only sits directly on the beach but has the added benefit and views of the dunes of the Delaware State Seashore directly north. In our opinion this is an unbeatable location with some of the best views along the Atlantic.

Amazing views and unparalleled access to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic girl's getaway weekend. The house was great, but the views are breathtaking! We had a great time watching people fish just to the north in the park. Great place for friends and or family to gather. Highly recommend!

Best view on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful week. Bad weather? No worries. View from inside = incredible. Felt as though we were on a ship. Waves, beach and the dunes. End of week = beautiful weather - beach few steps away -- or relax on any of the many decks. Comfortable and roomy accommodations. Owners are very responsive.

Location, Location, Location! (Still pinching ourselves.)

  • 5 of 5

I am conflicted to share a review for fear of this property becoming so popular, we will never get the chance to rent it again. This end unit has such an amazing location... right on the ocean with views from every level. The view to the north is open and free... no buildings to block the view. Tim, the owner, was incredibly responsive throughout the rental process. I sent him several emails with questions and issues (a family member's bag of coats and boots was inadvertently put in the garbage can when we left. Oops!), and he was helpful at every turn. Really, really impressed. The interior was clean and charming. This is not your brand new, pristine place ... it's your beachy, comfy, friendly place. The master bedroom on the 3rd floor was a highlight for the birthday girl. The other bedrooms housed us well; I had the best night's sleep in years. (Was it the soothing roar of the waves right outside?) Bathrooms and kitchen served their purpose. Our stay was short, and it has left us wanting more. If you decide to rent this property, take good care of it, because we are coming back. (p.s. if you have physical issues which make stairs difficult, the metal, spiral staircase may be an issue.)

Beach Views & Sounds were Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend at your "Beach House". The house was very clean and had everything we needed in the kitchen as we grilled out one evening. It was so nice to have the beach literally just steps from the porch. We ate dinner one evening at the Restaurant right there on the premises, Matt's Fish Camp. It was excellent!! The proximity to the outlet shopping at Rehoboth and to the Bethany Boardwark made this the perfect place for us to stay. We so enjoyed listening to the waves crashing the shore constantly, from any room in the house!! The different decks were all amazing! This was our first trip to Bethany Beach, but definitely will not be our last. Thank you for making our first trip to Bethany so memorable in many, many ways!!!

The dunes have their own unique ecosystem of interesting plants, birds and other wildlife on constant view. Additionally the oceanfront park offers fishing, surfing, hiking, and all the activities a state park has to offer - see the link below. Beach volleyball, playground, tennis courts, pavilion and regular visits from the snow cone truck!
