About Patrick Armstrong

We have been going to the Delaware beaches all our lives and purchased this property in 2004. We rent it some and use it the rest of the time.

Patrick Armstrong purchased this house in 2004

Why Patrick Armstrong chose South Bethany Beach

It has one of the best locations in the area. Sure you can have beach front but the nearest marina is 5 miles away. On the other hand most homes with a dock and quick bay access are far from the beach. In this area beach side is only one block deep, a few blocks north and beach side is 2 or 3 blocks deep and bayside is 3 to 6 blocks deep yet further from the bay. This also means more people on the beach in those areas. Just the perfect spot.

What makes this house unique

In our town to drive to the beach you need a parking pass. The only way to buy a pass is to own property or rent from the owner. At first this doesn't sound like a big deal, but it is. To get on the mile long South Bethany Beach you must own or rent a property. So our beaches are uncrowded even in the peak season. Unlike other crowded towns that anyone can park and go to the beach. The Skip the crowds and rent from us!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Pat,

Just wanted to let you know we had a great week at the beach. The place was nice, perfect for our family. We have 3 kids aged 15-21 and they had a couple young adult friends visit. I liked that they could all stay downstairs and also use the sunroom area without bothering me or the neighbors :) Also, take this as a suggestion not a complaint because we really liked the place, you could use a few more cereal bowls and some steak knives. So all in all, we really enjoyed our trip and felt that we got what was advertised, loved the deck out back, plenty of nice chairs, and clean when we arrived. (you could also use a swifter as people like me will clean up if there are more cleaning supplies...) Hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and thanks again for renting to us. T.R.



Thanks for the note, we added more steak knives and cereal bowls….

111 Tern

  • 4 of 5

111 Tern was very clean and wonderfully convenient to the beach. It was a second house for our large family so we were only there to sleep. The kitchen seemed to be well appointed, the air worked well, the beds were comfortable. There is one bathroom for 3 bedrooms downstairs, and one bed and bath upstairs. For parents and kids, it’s perfect. For couples, it meant some had to go up and down stairs to share the upstairs bath, but it worked out. The porch is not air conditioned but most mornings it wasn’t too hot. We didn’t crab or kayak, but it would be a great spot for both, being on the canal.

Excellent property in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

The house was very unique, well-kept, and full all of the conveniences we could ask for. The house was located in a cute and quiet neighborhood with easy access to access a quiet beach. The deck was amazing! This was the perfect place to meet up with a couple other families for a beach weekend. Patrick answered all communications quickly and was very hospitable and helpful.

Great stay in South Bethany

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our needs. My husband and son loved the dock to try to do some fishing and crabbing. It was a nice walk to the beach as well. We would definitely consider staying here again.

Great long weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This house was just what our family was looking for in a weekend getaway. We ate all our meals out on the screened in porch and spent time reading and playing cards and board games out there as well. When the weather was nice the back deck by the canal was great for relaxing and the beach is just a short walk away. The house was clean and well maintained and the owner, Patrick, was very responsive to messages. We hope to return to Bethany beach soon and would definitely recommend this house to friends!
