Quiet and easy

  • 5 of 5

The house is located a few minutes from the main strip of Bethany Beach and across the highway from the ocean. Phyllis, the host, was very accommodating and easy to contact. The house is located in a small gated community with what seemed like only a few other occupied houses over the weekend. Overall, it was a convenient location and a pleasant stay.

Beautiful home with outstanding views

  • 5 of 5

My family had an amazing stay at this spacious, private home. The views are picture perfect and the private community was quiet and relaxing with the perfect location only a few blocks from the shops and boardwalk in Bethany.... The owner was great to work with and very responsive, we will be staying here again in our next trip....

We will be be back!

  • 4 of 5

This beautiful home was perfect for our family reunion. For the first time everyone was comfortable. Plenty of space to gather the group, plenty of spaces for private time. The house is nicely appointed and nicely equipped. The setting on the Salt Pond makes being around the house as relaxing as being on the beach.

Beautiful spot, nice clean house, but owner overly stressed about renting...

  • 3 of 5

The house was very clean and in a nice quiet spot but...I should have learned from the previous renter that the owner is not comfortable with big groups. She had agreed to allow 13 people (8 adults and 5 kids - with the youngest being 5). To be clear, we were in town for a boys lacrosse tournament and left some siblings with grandparents to honor the 13 person and 4 car rule. Not ideal, but we honored the agreement. One of the dads could not make the trip, so our friends brought their 5 year old daughter to keep our son company. The owner called me on Sunday demanding to know how many people were in the house...she basically implied that I was not being honest with her because we had included a girl. She claimed she had come to the house because "a light was left on in the garage" and saw lots of shoes (which makes sense when you have sneakers, flip flops and cleats - all of which we left downstairs per the house rules). She continued to press that I was not telling the truth because there was a car seat in the garage (which was my 5 year olds son's 5 point harness seat). She was very concerned that there was a small girl (that she did not know about...) that stayed at the house and that meant we had more than 13 people.

We DID have only 13 people and did exchange our friend's daughter for the dad, but that does NOT give her the right to call me and acuse me of not being "honest". I also not enjoy being spied on during our stay. The berating phone call clearly crossed the line and it is too bad because the house itself was great.

At the end of the day, I would not recommend a party of 12 (or 13 if she allows it) staying at the house (especially with kids)

Great Bethany Beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the location on Salt Pond. Having coffee on the screened porch overlooking the Pond was perfect. The house is very well equipped (especially the kitchen) and we loved the open concept and great light. Having the beach pass for Bethany Beach was an absolute plus as it made parking at the beach so easy. The house is very well maintained and our family had a wonderful vacation! We also enjoyed hiking the nature trail just a short walk from the house.

Lastly, since we were there over July 4th, we could see all the fireworks from the deck- a real treat! We really enjoyed the house, beds were comfortable and very clean!

Best house ever... And I'm picky!

  • 5 of 5

Phyllis's house was perfect! Very clean, beautiful (even better than the pictures portray), nestled in a quiet area, plenty of parking, kitchen well supplied, many rooms to sit and relax (large spacious living, dining area, den with French doors, and another den on third floor with a deck. There are many decks including one screened in deck, spacious bedrooms and bathrooms... It was perfect for our family including 5 grandchildren... Easy to spread out! Phyllis was very helpful and welcoming. We couldn't ask for a nicer property owner!
