A nice stay.
We rented the house in Sept of 2017 as a way of celebrating my birthday. The house was one house away from the beach, which was great. There was plenty of parking. We were asked to bring linens, and we also brought blankets and pillows, but there were some already there so we didn't need what we brought. The house was great for the 8 of us: two families with children. The house had a newer kitchen counter, but was otherwise dated. This didn't bother us at all. Everything was very very clean, which was awesome. There were plenty of dishes for all of us, and plenty of pots and pans. There were a bunch of books in a closet by the bathrooms that we didn't discover until the last day. The outdoor decks were great, with plenty of places to sit. Bring your own beach chairs! We also were able to get a week-end only rental, which was perfect for us. There was a third floor to the house was closed, presumably the owner's part of the house. The owner was not around. We had the house to ourselves. One note: the wifi password we were sent via email was wrong, but the right one was posted on the fridge.
Kaplan, 2 S. 4th ST. S. Bethany
We stayed the week of independence day.
Pros: Right across the street from the beach access, nice large deck with furniture, roomy enough for 8 (We had 6). good selection of kitchen items, dishes, and flatware, very good view of the S. Bethany fireworks from the Crows Nest, had beach chairs and umbrellas available to use, outside shower, faucet at street to rinse feet. The AC worked well and the place was clean. Toilet and sink on ground level. Covered parking and keyless entry.
Cons: There is a small grill but no BBQ tools, the mattresses were not very comfortable, pillows were small and thin (bring your own), shower in second bathroom was very small; you can't bend over in it. Wi-Fi was generally weak as if many people were using the same stream. No icemaker (Had ice trays).
Great value and close to beach with ocean views. Internet speed / wifi needs to be upgraded but other than that all good.
Fantastic Beach House
We were very happy with our beach rental. The house was very comfortable and well-equipped. We enjoyed the decks and loved being so close to the beach. It was our first time in Bethany, and we were very happy with the location. It was convenient to get into town - which is quite lovely, and close to OC where our teenage boys enjoyed the boardwalk. There was plenty to do for all of us. The only downside was that the beach was too steep for boogie boarding - but that seemed to be the case on all the surrounding beaches. All in all, it was a fantastic location and the house was quite fine.
Great location, otherwise disappointing
We rented this property after seeing it on the VRBO website. This was definitely not a VRBO as we never had any contact with the owner though some of my questions and concerns should have been addressed by the owner, not a property manager.
We rented it based upon its curb appeal: new siding, windows, and decks. This was misleading as the interior was worn and outdated. Specifically, The bathrooms were 1960's tile and formica, a broken shower door had been simply replaced with a shower curtain, and the built-in cabinets and drawers were plywood and dirty and in need of paint. Furniture consisted of yard sale items or mismatched cast-off (e.g., 3 different couches in the living room) and the kitchen had redundant appliances (e.g., 5 coffee carafes, 3 without corresponding bases).
WiFi was provided ..... to the entire neighborhood! There was no password, and at one point 24 unknown devices were online. We were reluctant to use such an insecure system, and the property manager said the owner would not correct this.
The 3 star rating was based upon the value for what was charged. Unless the interior is refurbished, it should not be priced as it is.
The best part was its excellent location, just steps away from the beach access path. The property manager was very responsive to our questions and concerns and very professional. He sent a cleaning crew out immediately to wash the smudges and grime off the faces of all the doors and cabinets.
This house is located in a great location. Features beautiful ocean views and the walk to the beach couldn't be quicker unless is was waterfront. The house was very clean and the bedrooms were quite spacious. We really enjoyed the decks and their ocean views!
