About the property

5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 12

This spacious waterfront home has everything you need for the perfect family vacation. Water views from almost every room provide a tranquil setting, while the private boat ramp, three docks, kayaks, shaded hammock and outdoor games mean you'll never be bored. The uncrowded, wide beach of Fenwick Island State Park is a short walk (about three blocks). The town of Bethany Beach is a bike-ride away.

Need a little break from the sun? No problem! This house is equipped with wireless internet, cable TV with premium movie channels, a game closet packed with board games, cards, puzzles and more, even a mini-foosball table. Two large living areas mean the kids and parents can all watch what they want on their own large TVs.

There is plenty of parking for 5 or more cars. See below for additional details on the property, handicap accessibility and accommodations.

Accommodation Details: The lower/ground level features a master bedroom (King size bed, or two twins; a foam connector is provided) with full bath attached, a living room with bay view, family room (with pull out sofa bed), spacious screened-in porch, fully-stocked kitchen with counter seating for four, dining room with seating for 8 to 10 (we squeeze 12 around the dining room table, additional dining chairs are in the closet), an adjacent breakfast nook with additional seating, and a powder room. A washer and dryer in the garage make it easy to toss in sandy bathing suits and towels.

The second level offers four more bedrooms configured as follows: King, King, 2 twins, 2 sets of bunks (4 singles), a sun deck, two more full baths and a second laundry room.

Beach chairs, six bikes, sand toys, boogie boards, ladder golf game and additional beach 'accoutrements' are stored in the garage and ready for your enjoyment. The outside shower has been viewed by some as 'the best room in the house.

The Property: This unique home is located on a property the size of four lots, situated at the end of a quiet dead end street. Surrounded on one side by Davis Cove and on another by Little Assawoman Bay, the house offers pristine water views from every living area and almost every bedroom. Located directly across the bay from a state wildlife refuge, it's a great spot for birders, wildlife fans and boaters alike. You never have to leave the house to have a dream vacation.

The restaurants and shops of Bethany Beach, including Sedona, DiFebo's, Grotto Pizza are just up the road.

Handicap and Wheelchair Accessible: Our family has several seniors, and we wanted them to be able to use the house comfortably. A ramp to the back door makes this property wheelchair accessible. The lower level master bedroom is perfect for grandparents or others who don't like the stairs. The bathroom attached to the downstairs bedroom has a walk-in shower with safety bars. A shower chair is available upon request. The main living space is on the ground floor, so those using the downstairs, accessible bedroom will enjoy all the bay and cove views, and be able to enjoy all the activity that a family vacation has to offer.

Please review the availability calendar below before inquiring about specific dates. Families only, please. We are not able to accommodate weddings of any size. Thanks!

Very relaxing. Fully equipped. A lot of fun

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to run away from NYC from a colder weather (34f ) and found this house. We were able to sit outside in the porch and kayak which was great. I would definitely go back when it is warmer and would recommend all to try it out. Lisa had a book explaining everything you need and answered all of our questions in a matter of minutes.

The property has a huge backyard for the dogs to run and they liked it a lot.

My husband and I rented Stella's Cove for the month of December and it was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was clean, comfortable and beautifully appointed. Everything we needed was included. We had our family join us for Christmas, with 12 people there was plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the holiday. Everyone commented on how beautiful the view and the home were. This home was a perfect place to share and to make holiday memories together. Our "furry" family members also enjoyed Stella's Cove and the large outdoor spaces. The owner was very accommodating and readily available to answer questions. Our experience at Stella's Cove was exceptional. Hopefully, we will return to Stella's Cove next year. Everything was ideal! Thank you, Lisa!

Everything we needed for the perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at Stella's Cove at the end of June/beginning of July. This home has the "wow" factor, sitting on a beautiful piece of property surrounded by water on three sides. It is immaculately kept for a home that I know is rented regularly. A few special things about this home:

1. You can walk to the beach, but for our family with lots of children, it was best to drive and we were there in a matter of minutes, and the provided parking passes had us walking up the path to the beach in no time.

2. The views - water, water everywhere! Immaculately kept property with beautiful flowers, a hammock, swing, plenty of chairs.

3. The bay - we kayaked with the kayaks provided and practiced fishing with our 6 year old (we knew there were no fish, but he loves it). We crabbed with him also.

4. The bath towels provided were of great quality and there were so many.

5. The beach toys, umbrellas and chairs were invaluable. They were of fantastic quality and saved us numerous hassles.

6. The layout was exactly as described; the photos are accurate. We had plenty of space to spread out plus, when people were upstairs, we could not hear the people downstairs, which was a huge plus. Plenty of living/relaxing spaces and a great, large, well stocked kitchen.

7. LISA! I defy you to find a nicer, more accommodating, respectful property owner! She is a polite and prompt communicator and answered my questions in a way that showed she cared about her renters, that we were not just a number. She checked in with us, sent us updates about the happenings in the town and was just an overall pleasure.

We really look forward to renting this property again. Thank you Lisa! You have a wonderful home!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a thorough review! And of course we are thrilled that you and your extended family enjoyed your week at the beach. It is a little tough to catch more than spot fish off the docks,, but the kids don't have to know that! :) I especially appreciate your kind words about our service. It is really important to me that our guests enjoy their stay in our home. Your thoughtful comments make all the effort worth it! I do hope we will see you and those gorgeous kids again next year!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at Stella's Cove, and, like last year, we had a wonderful time, relaxing on the deck, the porch, in the hammock. The kayaks are a huge bonus, and the house is very nicely equipped. We love the location--it's tranquil and lovely on the bay, but the beach is an easy walk. We are three families, a total of 12 people, and we were very comfortable, never too crowded, always able to find a quiet corner. We look forward to next yea!

Car: recommended

Bethany Beach is a quaint seaside town with unique shops, antique stores, family and gourmet restaurants, arcades, mini golf and more. Set apart from its larger neighbors, yet still close to the action of Ocean City, MD and Rehoboth Beach, DE with its outlet stores and tax-free shopping.

Golf: Salt Pond Golf Club, Bear Trap Dunes Golf Club, and Bethany Bay Golf Club are all within two miles of Bethany Beach.
