About the property

12 Bedrooms, 6 Full Baths, 2 Half Baths, Sleeps 26

Breathtaking ocean views are abundant in this North Bethany home. 5 of the bedrooms offer private balconies with panoramic views and a cupola above the fourth floor with 360 degrees views in every direction. The stone fireplace in the Great Room is seen through the adjoining library, which opens to an oceanfront screened porch. The fully equipped kitchen with 2 sinks has new stainless appliances that include 2 refrigerator freezers (1 in lower level), 2 dishwashers, Viking 6 burner stovetop and an ice maker. There are 2 large cedar decks, one with a hot tub and gas grill and one ocean front with built in bench. The game room has a pool table on the main level and stereo surround speakers throughout the main level. The movie room has a wireless 60' Samsung Smart TV to access internet, movies, etc. Access to the uncrowded beach is steps away from private walkway.

Bethany Beach is part of the Quiet Resorts and offers many recreational activities from swimming, surfing, sailing to crabbing, fishing and golfing. There's something for every age whether it's fine dining, boutique shopping and walking the boardwalk for adults or family friendly restaurants, miniature golf, basketball, volleyball and video arcades for kids. Enjoy deep sea fishing from a chartered boat that departs daily from Indian River Inlet. If golfing is more your style, there are two Jack Nicklaus courses (Bayside and The Peninsula) as well as courses to suit any level. LINENS ARE NOT INCLUDED, but can be rented for an additional cost.

Fantastic for large groups looking for an authentic and luxurious beach experience

  • 5 of 5

We just hosted a family reunion over Memorial Weekend at this place, and it was just perfect!

The house itself is thoughtfully designed for entertaining large families. Everything from the two story family room with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the sea, to a beautiful deck ideal for gathering to a well appointed kitchen, and finally plenty bedrooms, many with balconies overlooking the sea. And yes, the hot tub worked marvelously to wear out travel fatigue for our out-of-state guests.

The property management company, especially Christine, was very helpful in ensuring we had an overall smooth experience. Just two examples of how resourceful: she was nice enough to show us the place while we were still looking to select a venue for our reunion, and she arranged for linen, towel, and beach chair rental for an extra price delivered straight to the place, thus maximizing our precious vacation time spent at the beach house.

All in all, we would be thrilled to come back here for another reunion!

Beach Villa

  • 3 of 5

Great location.Plenty of room for a large group.Pool table was a big hit.

Unfortunately,the property has not been well maintained. Carpets and bathroom rugs needed a good cleaning as did kitchen cabinets.Some bed covers were missing and air conditioning was very uneven.

The decks definitely needed work with splinters and peeling paint.Overpriced for condition of property.

Owner's Response: These concerns have been addressed; new improved cleaning program has been implemented, including frequent steaming of carpet throughout the home. This was an anomalous occurrence and was immediately addressed by changing the cleaning service management team. UPDATE FOR SUMMER 2016!! Beautiful New Timbertech Decks have been installed! Pictures to come soon.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

I celebrated my 50th b-day with about a dozen other friends between 40-70 and it was the perfect space for it. Plenty of room, plenty of activities- so close to the beach- was wonderful. Would love to return! Also easy to get to Bethany, Fenwich and OC for day trips a

Wonderful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time staying at this beautiful beach house. We have a large family and this house accommodated us easily. It is clean and very well equipped, which we greatly appreciated because we cooked most of our meals in. The house is spacious but has a homey feel to it. I had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Mr. Fontana, who is an absolute pleasure to talk to and it really made us appreciate even more that he and his family share their beautiful beach home with perfect strangers!!

The house is right on the beach with easy access and hardly any one else on the beach with you, which is wonderful because Bethany beaches can get very crowded! We would definitely like to return next summer!!

Reunion in Bethany Beach

  • 5 of 5

Every summer my extended family gets together for a reunion to reconnect and relax for a week in Bethany Beach. This year we had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful house.. It had everything you could possibly want, and more. The kitchen/dining/living room was very open, and ideal for a large group. The house had so much to offer for such a large group including the entertainment room for watching movies, the pool table for those evening tournaments and the quite of the beach facing porch for those who just wanted to enjoy the serenity of the beach. It was a terrific week and we truly enjoyed our accomodations.

In June we celebrated our 50th. wedding anniversary and wanted to spend it with just family. We rented this property for a week in June starting on June 8th. What a great time we had, what a great place to stay. It was clean, well kept and had every pot and pan, every dish, glass and kitchen utensil you would ever want and more. Everything worked. Beach chairs are there. The family was great to deal with and responded to our every request. The photo's are accurate. The house is comfortable, and the view is awesome There are good restaurants in the area, and the beach was pretty much ours. It was a great way to celebrate such a special occasion with family.
