About Brendan & Beth Glasgow

We love coming to the beach with our family, and have made significant renovations to the house making it more enjoyable. We have owned the house for 14 years and have enjoyed making memories with family and friends, including sharing many meals around the table on the back deck overlooking the beach dunes.

Brendan & Beth Glasgow purchased this townhome in 2004

Why Brendan & Beth Glasgow chose Tower Shores

If you like a quiet family beach, then Atlantic Watergate is a wonderful beach vacation in close proximity (50 steps) to a private beach. You have tremendous privacy looking out onto the Delaware state park that is adjacent to our back yard. It sleeps 10 comfortably and you can dine either on the back deck or in the dining room.

What makes this townhome unique

50 steps to a private beach, beautiful views of the ocean and dunes from the back decks, tremendous privacy looking onto the state park and for families with children there is a small playground area 40 yards from the front door.

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.

Fantastic house with lovely kitchen and wonderful communal space

  • 5 of 5

The location just off the beach was ideal; waking up to beach views from the deck off the third floor bedroom was heavenly. The house was very welcoming and the round dining tables seat 10– very communal and engaging space. The beautiful new kitchen has nice dishes and glassware and all the cooking and baking utensils. It was so nice, we loved it. The sleeping arrangements are good for a girls room and a boys room with plenty of beds for a big family- And the third floor master bedroom with beautiful deck. It’s a fabulous family oriented beach house.

Great location, nicely equipped, comfortable place

We had a great time staying in this wonderful house. Just steps to the beach and lots to do in the surrounding area. Tons of conveniences in the house, including everything a family needs to hit the beach. We would definitely stay here again.

This beach condo is a wonderful place to spend a happy beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I spent a week w/my cousin & her husband & their six year old grandson. The property will sleep ten but we didn't need the extra beds. The property owners have thought of everything. This condo is extremely clean & furnishings are current & up to date. They have provided every amenity you need for the kitchen, the living area ( I.e TV, cable, DVD, etc), games & all the beach items u could possibly need. Chairs, umbrellas, toys & tennis rackets. We used their charcoal grill & enjoyed several wonderful dinners on their various decks. The condo is decorated w/lovely pictures & furniture. The outside shower was also very convenient. The condo is very close the beach which was very helpful. And we were right across from the children's playground & tennis courts! Something for everyone. In short, these condo owners have thought of everything to help u have a fabulous vacation. They were also flexible & allowed us to bring our two dogs w/us. The Delaware state park is the adjacent beach to ours where dogs are allowed. We were able to take the dogs to the dog beach every morning to watch a sunrise & every evening for play & a great sunset. While we were @ the beach or playground the dogs were always crated. This extra flexibility made for an extra special vacation w/our dogs to help us celebrate our 30th anniversary. These happy memories made @ this beach condo will last a life time. We would like to return for another vacation sometime. Thank u very much condo owners!

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.
