About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 12)

The Yellow Submarine is the perfect house at the beach!

The first level is an open floor plan (TV/DVD, round dining table (seats 5), kitchen island, full kitchen) Best of all...there is a LARGE screened-in porch...a perfect 'room' at the beach!

Three of the four bedrooms are on the first level. Two share a half bathroom (small rooms with one double bed each) and the third one (king) has its own half bath and sliding glass doors to the front porch. There is a separate shower room on the main level for all to use.

The second level has a full bath, a large bedroom (two queen beds) and a loft which doubles as a living room (TV) during the day and '5th sleeping area' at night (queen sleep sofa)

The house also has a roll-a-way cot (single) for an extra sleeping spot.

The roof top balcony/deck is a perfect place for the kids to hang out or for anyone to enjoy some outdoor SUN time.

Enjoy wireless internet throughout the house!

Outside. . enjoy the 1/2 acre yard, screened-in porch, picnic table, corn hole, charcoal grill and ENCLOSED OUTDOOR SHOWER!

Renting The Yellow Submarine gives you full rights to the PRIVATE BEACH for your entire stay. Middlesex Beach is a guarded beach . . and only those with passes may be on the beach (The Yellow Submarine comes with beach passes!!) There will be no problem finding a prime spot in the sand.

The Yellow Submarine is 2 blocks from the beach and you can walk it in approx. 5 minutes. You also have the option of driving and using the parking passes that we provide. Since only those with passes are allowed in. . . there is NEVER a problem finding a parking spot.


The privacy extends to the house and yard too! You will be nestled on a dead end street. . among the trees(for privacy). . . cars do not park on the side of the road. . you can take walks, ride bikes. . . it's nothing like any other place at the beach!! (yet you are steps away from all that the beach offers!! (mini golf, boardwalks, restaurants, stores, etc))

In less than two minutes you can walk to Subway, McDonald's, Bethany Seafood, the dollar store, a chinese restaurant and more!

For more information, just click on 'inquire about this property' below and ask! NOTE- you must provide your own linens at the Yellow Submarine.

About The Owner

The Yellow Submarine is owned by Steve & Carol Paul (we also own (and rent) The Yacht-Sea Beach House (8 Errett Rd)

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Bethany Beach

We purchased The Yellow Submarine after years of loving Middlesex Beach! We have been vacationing (renters ourselves!) in Middlesex since 1987. Once we found the private beach, we couldn't go to any other beach! Our children have grown up being allowed to play frisbee, surf and run freely on an uncrowded beach. We also came to love the privacy offered from the 1/2 acre yards in Middlesex. We have tried to make The Yellow Submarine a Renter's Dream by adding all the things we wished were at the numerous houses we rented over the years (and by copying the things we LOVED at those other rentals too) Middlesex Beach is our favorite place in the world!

What makes this house unique

My husband's favorite thing is that we park our cars when we arrive and get the bikes out. Our kids love to bike to the end of the street and buy ice cream after dinner. They also love biking to the boardwalk. Our younger nieces and nephews love the dead end street where they are allowed to bike and play ball in the middle of the road! We love that we can walk and bike up to Summer Salt's Bar & Grille for wings and drinks! My parents love the fine dining in the area (Blue Coast, Parkway, Sedona's & More). The kids love biking to Candy Kitchen, the Dollar Store, Chinese food and the beach supply store. Mostly we love that, in Middlesex, we are secluded! Every night we fix our beach drinks, turn on the tiki lights on the porch and press play on the beach CD...then sit back, relax and smile!

we will come back to the yellow submarine!

  • 5 of 5

the week went by too fast! we all enjoyed middlesex beach and the yellow submarine. we walked to the beach easily each day. the kitchen is open to the living area with lots of counter space. we loved the screened in porch and extra fridge! the indoor showers are new and really nice but we opted for the outdoor shower since it was the beach and we can't do that at home. really nice family area. we will be back!

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

The Yellow Submarine was perfect for our vacation! The driveway was able to comfortably fit 4 cars and still have room for outside activities like corn hole and a barbecue. Also, the screened in porch was a great place to eat outside while being able to avoid all the annoying bugs. The inside of the house was in great condition and the balcony overlooking the family room was awesome. We also really enjoyed the shuffle board table and large kitchen, both of which we used every night. Finally, the private beach exceeded our expectations and was absolutely amazing. The beach was close enough to walk to, but most days we just drove and used one of the two provided parking passes. I highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a great and convenient house to rent for summer vacation!

Very unwelcoming will not be returning

  • 1 of 5

There was spiders and bees everywhere in the house, the washer and dryer, dishwasher, and microwave did not work. But because the owner had threatened to evict us for no reason on the first day we felt we couldn’t complain about anything due to fear of being kicked out of the beach house without a refund. The photos on the website are not up to date we were expecting more privacy but instead we had neighbors on all sides who were loud and would stare at us as we came in left the beach house. It was such a negative experience that at the beginning of the week there was 12 of us and at the end only 5 people were still there. We felt every unwelcome in the home and the community. I would not recommend staying in this house.

Owner's Response: Our washer, dryer, dishwasher and microwave were all purchased in July, 2017 This group never contacted us with any complaints or problems while staying at the Yellow Submarine but when we saw this review we sent someone out immediately to check all the appliances. All were found to be in great working order. Three families have stayed in the home since this group’s departure and all said the appliances worked just fine. Possibly this review was written to ‘be mean to us’ because our security team kept such a close eye on this group. At check in, we found them to be in violation of their lease agreement (they were underage and there for beach week). We decided to allow them to stay but had our neighbors and security keep a close eye on them. I am sorry for their experience. Had they been honest about who they where from the beginning, this whole negative experience would not have happened.

Place was great!

  • 4 of 5

Everything was well stocked with everything you would need from ingredients to pots and pans. The only down fall was some of us were bitten by bugs that came from outside.

Great family house!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was close to everything and a quick walk to the beach! The beach wasn't crowded, and the house was perfect. There's tons of room in the house and the screened in porch was great for the mornings. Thank you for letting us stay!
