Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our three kids (all under 10) and our teenage niece all loved the townhouse. Plenty of room to be together.... or not. Very clean and comfortable. The full kitchen with a dishwasher made eating breakfast in easy. We enjoyed grilling out and eating on one of the decks with views of the ocean and dunes. View from the master bedroom was wonderful and peaceful. The outdoor shower and laundry area in the front entrance was great to keep the sand out of the house! Rental has beach chairs and umbrellas and is a short walk to the beach. Cute playground and tennis courts across the way that you can see from the front deck.

Beach is large with plenty of room to play beach games or just make sand castles. All but our youngest enjoyed the waves and boogie boarding! Sandy bottom and only waist deep for quite a way out. We saw dolphins every day!

The town of Bethany is cute but not much to do. We would not recommend The Frog House restaurant.

We enjoyed Rehobeth Beach (about 10 miles north) and their boardwalk. Bring lots of quarters for parking!! The boardwalk has an amusement park with something for all ages (even our 3 year old). We ate at Grotto Pizza two different nights. It is really good pizza, something that we could all agree on, and wasn't too pricey. We also had a great meal at The Summer House. We went before 6pm and missed the long line of families coming to eat.

We had fantastic crab cakes at the Fenwick House (on Fenwick Island a few miles south).

The property owners were very accommodating and helpful.

We would recommend this property to a friend.

Owner's Response: We hope that others who stay at our beach house experience the same enjoyment and relaxation that this family had. We have worked very hard to make the house comfortable, attractive and equipped with the amenities that a typical family would expect and use. Every time that we use the beach house we try to think how others would use it and make the necessary improvements.

Lovely property with beautiful ocean views

  • 5 of 5

We went with our 2 teenagers, toddler, and our active senior citizen mother who's in better shape then the rest of us combined. Everyone in our party had a lovely time at this house. The top deck has a simply lovely, expansive view of the ocean and dunes. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood and is comfortably decorated with plenty of sleeping space. It takes about a minute to walk to the beach so it's extremely convenient to go back to the house if needed. The kitchen is small if you have multiple people cooking, but it's well-equipped and serviceable. The owners were extremely responsive throughout our stay and thoughtfully provided plenty of games, puzzles, beach chairs & toys. There's a tennis court and nice playground just across the quiet street. Our family is ready to go back for another week here.

Great for Small Children

  • 5 of 5

My entire family had a wonderful time at this beach house. It was just a short walk over the dunes to the beach, easily doable for our two kids under 5 yrs old. Convenient enough for easy trips back to the house for bathroom breaks or forgotten beach toys. We found the private beach uncrowded, clean and safe. The house was well-equipped for eating meals in, had plenty of living space (even for a larger family than ours) and the owners made available a closet full of beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach toys - as well as a cart to schlep it all to the beach. It was a quiet complex with lots of other kids, and a short drive to grocery stores, ice cream shops, and Rehoboth Beach's boardwalk and Funland - which our 2-1/2 yo and almost 5 yo LOVED.

Finally, the owners were always very prompt and courteous in returning my calls or responding to my emails. They couldn't have been easier to rent from.
