Guestbook comments from the owner

Rated 9.5 / 10

We had a great time! On the way home, I asked everyone to rate the vacation and I got a 9.5 out of ten. Pretty good!

The house worked really well for us. It's an unusual setup with the "two houses" bridged by the open air area in the middle but surprisingly it works extremely well. The biggest advantage for us was for the kids. They could sleep in the morning or early evening or for a nap while we felt comfortable in the kitchen side making noise or meals or watching a movie or whatever. I often enjoyed reading on the porch in the evening when it was cool. Here are some other random thoughts:

-love the quiet street and neighborhood

- love the big property, just has a wonderful spacious and rustic feeling

-love the Middlesex Beach, way less crowded, excellent guards, not a bad walk

-nice to have the little shops at the end of the street: Chinese, Dollar Store, Shore Foods and Subway...all very handy

-ice maker makes ice fast! handy for beach cooler every day

-great to have "support": beach chairs, boogie boards, wagon, etc.

-girls loved the playhouse

-nice to have the bikes

-outdoor shower rated "best shower ever" by the boys

-everything well stocked....e.g. it was nice to have some spices in the cabinet already and little things like that

-furniture is "just right" The house is not a showroom and that's how I like it. (We did a trip to Ocean City once and stayed in a nice new place- and that was the problem. We were afraid to sit down. Too new and too nice. And it was sterile.) This place has character and charm

-house is big enough for our clan; just right not too big not too small

-area is centrally located to Bethany and Fenwick area

-had crabs and shellfish from Steamers: surprised at how fresh it all was and what a difference that makes

-we also really enjoyed the 10 day stay. Longer than a week but not too long. It's the first time we've done this and I can't imagine just doing a week now.



I'll offer a couple of suggestions:

- wish the exterior stairs were wider, particularly in the back. They are just very narrow and with my big feet I was always worried about missing one. It's a small thing but thought I'd mention it.

-also wouldn't mind having one more drying line. We just had so much to dry it seemed.



That's about it. Expect us to contact you sometime next year!

The perfect beach house for our family group!

  • 5 of 5

This well appointed home just 2 blocks from the ocean was the perfect house for us. We have stayed in a number of homes in this area and this is our favorite so far. The one side of the house has the living room, dining room, 1/2 bath, laundry and kitchen along with a large loft bedroom with a newly renovated full bath. This room allowed my 85 year old mother to have her own space to sleep, read and have some privacy when needed. The other side had the master bedroom where my husband and I slept, a bedroom where our college age daughter and her 2 friends slept and a huge loft bedroom/ lounge bedroom where our adult son and his 2 friends slept. This side has a beautiful full bath.

The kitchen was well stocked and allowed us to cook and stay in every night.

The screened in porch was used every evening and we ate outside several times at the large wooden table after grilling on the gas grill. The yard also has a large volleyball/bad-mitten net and there is an adorable play house with a mini loft in the front yard.

The house came with an assortment of beach chairs, a beach cart, loads of beach/sand toys and four bicycles. There are also many board games and inside children's toys.

We have stayed on the ocean side of the road before, but have found the privacy and quietness of the "pines" side to be preferable.

We would definitely stay at this home again and recommend it to anyone looking to visit the Bethany Beach area.

Great family house!

  • 5 of 5

Our clan of eleven had a great time and especially liked the house where we could spread out . Grammy loved front porch reading. Private beach was awesome..although we had a visit from a huge manta ray! Would consider this house a first choice.

Beach vacation week of 7/19-26

  • 5 of 5

House was awesome. Love the area. This is our 21st year at Middlesex. First year in this house. Had to find a bigger house to rent, family is growing and everyone wanted to go to the beach this year.

Kitchen was well stocked. Even had spices. Bedrooms were roomy. Property was well maintained and clean. Owners were prompt in answering any questions and easy to deal with for rental agreement.
