All we could have wanted!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, modern home in a safe, clean and conveniently located community near Bethany Beach. We've stayed in Bay Forest for years now but this house has been the nicest we've rented thus far. Gil & Ellen have thought of everything & the house was stocked with everything we could have wanted in every room. The house layout allows multiple families to spend time together while also being able to retreat to their own space. Gil was cooperative, kind, and a great communicator throughout the whole process. We look forward to staying here again!

Perfect House for Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely beautiful!! I was a bit worried about mixing both sides of the family for a week, but this house gave us plenty of room to spread out. The open floor plan allowed us all to have our space but also be close. The master bedroom is perfectly set away from the other rooms, allowing my husband and I to have some space apart from everyone else.

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need and the dining room had plenty of space and was perfect for all 9 of us to eat dinner at the large table. The bikes and beach toys in the garage were such a nice addition. The outside shower was absolutely perfect after a day at the beach to get all the sand off.

The owners of this home have gone above and beyond with attention detail to ensure that their guests feel like they are home.

Gil was so easy to work with and was always quick to respond or be available for questions. The community this house is in is full of sidewalks and trails for long walks and bike rides, and the pool was nice.

I can't recommend this home enough!

Exceeded Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, professionally decorated, and spotless. The floor-plan was perfect with a first-floor master suite which was situated far enough away from the other bedrooms to give Mom and Dad a retreat from the kids. Two bedrooms downstairs share a full bath and a fourth bedroom upstairs with a full bath. The kitchen was completely stocked with everything you need, and there were enough TV's so that everyone could relax and watch their favorite shows. Lots to do in the community too!

Return family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We came back again for another family vacation. The experience was the same as last time. Perfect house for our family and conveniently located near everything. Pool facility is also very nice when you don't feel like going to the beach. Hopefully looking to make it three years in a row.

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful vacation to the Bethany Beach area! This home was everything we could have wanted and more. It's absolutely beautiful, much nicer than pictured. Very well kept community and friendly neighbors. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The lazy river and pool area was great for the kids and adults, we enjoyed Happy Hour poolside on a Fri night. Bethany beach and boardwalk is only a short drive away. Also spent time in nearby Ocean City, Rehoboth Beach and Asseteague. The owner Gil, was very pleasant to work with. He was very accommodating. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.

My family had a wonderful time staying at this amazing house! The pictures do not do it justice it is even more beautiful in person! Everything we needed or wanted was provided.

We spent most days at the pool being "lazy" in the lazy river and enjoying the water slides. We also spent time at the beach which is only a short drive away.

Booking our stay with Gil was easy, he was quick to respond and answer all my questions and concerns. We will definetly stay here for our future vacations to the Bethany Beach area!
