My wife & I live in Northern VA, with 2 kids, and love going to the beach house in Bethany Beach, DE, as often as we can get there! The kids love it and so do we, there's no better way to get away from it all. I'm originally from Buffalo, NY, wife is from Wilmington, DE.
When we go to the beach, things we love to do are....
- Hit the beach! And of course, the hard-earned 4pm happy hour afterwards
- Sit out on the deck at night, play cards or trivial pursuit with a group
- Day trip to Rehoboth for Playland (kids) and a nice dinner out
- Day trip to Ocean City for mini-golf, go-karts, and seafood
- Cook up a feast at home one night - seafood, steaks, wine....throw a movie in for the kids
- Mondays - family movie night on the beach! (See pic in our 'photos')
- Thursdays - bonfire on the beach!
- Golf. A few courses in Bethany, many in Ocean City, some in Rehoboth
Bethany Beach is a special place for our family, our kids one day will look back on some great times there growing up. We wish the Bethany experience on anyone and hope you find it as great a place as we do!

This was my first VRBO experience and it could not have gone better. The owner's attention to detail and open lines of communication made vacation planning a breeze. The location and condition of the property made the actual vacation a blast! Everything was as advertised. There was plenty of room for five grown people. The condominium complex was very quiet and well kept. While the distance to the beach is walk-able or bike-able, the parking pass was a much appreciated extra allowing us to maximize our time on the beach. We would certainly stay here again.
We were pleased to find the townhouse that was advertised to be all that it said. It has all the comforts of home and more. Very neat & clean, roomy enough for our family of 5. My husband & I found the upstairs master bedroom private & comfortable for our weeks stay. The kids liked the bunk bed set-up and especially the outdoor shower to get the sand off. Having the beach chairs, umbrella & toys provided at the house made our travel load a lot easier. Good location, close to beach, walking distance to diner, and other restaurants. Our kids went jogging to the boardwalk one evening and enjoyed hanging out before walking back home. I would definitely consider staying here again!!!
Mike is great the,house is great and I hope to return next year.
Thank you Mike.
We had a wonderful stay in Bethany Beach at this property. We were two families with children and there was plenty of space for everyone. The house was equipped with everything you could want to make your vacation memorable for every age. The house was in a great location, walking distance to some great restaurants and close enough to walk to the beach or boardwalk. When we come back to Bethany Beach we will only stay here and recommend it to all our friends. I highly recommend this property - we LOVED it!
My friends and I stayed at this location for a girls weekend in the fall. The home is located a block away from a diner, three blocks from some great dinner places and allows for a nice relaxing stroll to the beach. The home is clean and fit five adults perfectly. There is plenty of space for all of your food and personal items. We felt very safe in the condo and liked that it was an end unit. Although the home is on a "main" road, you would never know it. Our stay was quiet, comfortable and much too quick! The owners were more than happy to communicate with us and provided several different phone numbers and email addresses. Responses are quick and friendly. All beds were surprisingly comfortable, but don't forget your own linens. If we were to visit Bethany Beach in the future, this would definitely be a place at the top of our list.
Small, comfortable home with beach atmosphere; all rooms very comfortable; enough bathrooms (one shower outside) for the whole family; washer/dryer very handy and LARGE; washer leak repaired very quickly, though it did stall our departure, as we needed to finish several large loads of towels and sheets; good location to local spots, beach and shops; quiet neighborhood.
There are several convenient stores/shops in the immediate area (~200 yards) - Grotto's, Playland arcade, Wawa, Rita's Ice Cream, Capriotti's subs, liquor store, tobacco/cigar shoppe, Bike/outdoor store, manicure place, chinese takeout, deli-style restaurant, Di Febo's Italian Restaurant, and 'Off the Hook' (a good upscale botique seafood restaurant). Nature center/trail & small playground across street. There is a Bethany trolly stop 100 yds away, a great way to get to/from the beach or downtown Bethany. Parking pass is included for free beach area parking (please remember to replace upon checkout).
About 10 miles south of Bethany Beach is Ocean City, known for it's highly commercialized miles-long strip of family-oriented restaurants & attractions, reminiscent of Myrtle Beach. Plenty of good golf courses near Ocean City.
To the north about 10 miles are Dewey and Rehoboth Beaches. Rehoboth has many great restaurants, a boardwalk, a fun daytrip (or eve/dinner trip) for families. Dewey is a nightlife hotspot mainly for the younger generation, live bands and bars are not hard to find.
In summary, Bethany has everything you'd want for a family vacation, and a day trip north or south to take advantage of surrounding beach towns can only add to the experience.
