I am a retired teacher who has lived in the Bethany area for 40 years. I love the outdoors, especially going to the beach.

perfect family getaway
We rented this property to have a family vacation with our adult children. The three bedrooms and two full baths, allowed 3 couples to stay comfortably. The whole house is well equipped with everything you could need from pencil and paper to laundry detergent and a clothes line out back that comes in handy for all those suits and towels. The outside shower is also a plus! The home is very nicely decorated, well kept and clean. We grilled local fish on the deck a few nights.
The beach is a short walk which makes it easy to enjoy a full day at the beach and still come up for a lunch break. It is also a short walk into town, which my husband and son enjoyed just about every night for ice cream! Don't miss the Farmer's Market on Sunday morning.
Nancy (the owner) was very helpful when I asked about some local restaurants and places to launch our paddle boards. We had a fabulous week and made lots of precious memories :) We will be back!
Home Away from Home
Our second visit to this property. Even though it’s 2-years later, the cottage is just as beautiful and welcoming as our first time. Nancy and her family go out of their way to provide a clean, well appointed, and comfortable beach cottage, Great location to everything. We will only stay here when we come back.
We didn't want to leave! Five Star Plus!!!!
I was "team ocean" before I got married. But, shortly after saying "I DO", my husband moved me to the Midwest and I had to become "team lake". We were fortunate to rent the same house, the same week in July, steps from Crystal Lake in Michigan for the last 20 or so years.We made many family memories there. This year, my son asked if he and his friends could take our week at the lake. We had moved back to southeastern PA so traveling to MI was going to be a hassle. Here was my chance to see if I was still an ocean lover without losing our week at the lake for next year!
I started looking on the site and was getting pretty depressed. I didn't want a condo or a mega house...then I saw this simply adorable, in-town cottage only a few blocks from the beach! Could these pictures be real?! While there weren't many reviews ,all were 5 star! I went for it!
The pictures didn't lie! This cottage felt like home the minute we walked onto the front porch. Nancy, the owner, put a lot of thought into making this bungalow the perfect vacation rental. She even left beach chairs, boogie boards, and other accessories in a bin in the backyard in case we forgot our own! Every room had it's own comfortable, beach vibe. The kitchen was spacious and updated, equipped with all the necessities! The entire house felt clean, bright, and new!
I am so happy I took a chance and booked this cottage! My husband and I haven't had a truly relaxing vacation like this in a very long time....week at the lake included...in several years. I think we were surprised that we could enjoy a vacation at the beach, just the two of us, as much as we did. I'm sure staying here contributed greatly to the enjoyment factor. And, I am happy to report, I am still "team ocean"!
I hesitated to write this review as I wanted to keep this gem off the radar of other potential renters. But, Nancy and her cottage deserve the accolades. If I could give more stars, I would.
Wonderful property. Well kept and loved.
Nancy Butters, the owner, was attentive, communicated regularly in the lead up to our stay, and keeps the property in great shape and the experience a delight. I hate to give such a glowing review for fear the property won't be available when I want to rent again.
Perfect home away from home
You get a sense of being home the first second you step through the front door. Inside is beautifully decorated yet comfy and welcoming. As you explore the house, you realize every detail has been thoughtfully provided for in the gorgeous kitchen, the comfy bedrooms, the fully equipped laundry room, two full bathrooms, and the relaxing porch outside. All the rooms are very clean, bright, and cheery. We had come to attend a wedding and our stay at the beach cottage turned it into a mini-vacation. Thank you, Nancy, for being the perfect host. This property is highly recommended.
Lovely cottage. Comfortable. Excellent location. Wonderful and accommodating host.
Loved our visit! Our cottage was beautiful and had everything we needed.
Thank you! The picture of your grandchildren on the beach was precious! So glad you enjoyed your stay!
