About Toni Bicknell

My family has been coming to the Bethany Beach area for over 30 years and we love it. Now, our grandchildren join us as well.

Toni Bicknell purchased this condo in 2012

Why Toni Bicknell chose Delaware

We rented in Bethany Bay for the past 5 years and love the combination of the quiet, peaceful resort but being close to everything. Every time we have stayed here, we have loved it more, so decided to buy our own home here. It is very safe and very family oriented. I love getting up in the morning and enjoying a cup of coffee sitting on the deck and watching the sunrise over the bay. In the winter, we sit on the enclosed sun porch for the same view. In the evening, there are beautiful sunsets that can be seen from the living room. It gets harder to leave every time we visit.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is right off of the circle and is a short walk to the pool and fitness center and also to the boat launch. But it still is very quiet and relaxing. We keep bicycles and sporting equipment in the garage and are happy to share them with anyone who stays.

Everything we'd hoped for!!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was everything we had hoped for and more. The owners anticipated everything

we possibly could have needed. The rooms were furnished beautifully and the community

is fabulous for adults as well as children of all ages. Loved golfing in the morning, hitting

the beach during the day and wrapping up at the pool. Can't wait to stay here again next year.

Beautiful Well Care for home with all the Extras

  • 5 of 5

2nd year we have stayed here and the home is wonderful. Towels, beach items and bikes are here for your use. Kitchen is nicely appointed with all that you need to cook at home. Nice view of the bay from the sunroom and back porch.

Super comfortable rooms and lots of space. We have 7 people stay in the home and there is PLENTY of room for us all in the kitchen and to sit and watch a movie. Nice pool with plenty of passes to use if you want a day off from the beach.

Toni is truly GREAT to get ahold and respond to any questions you might have and has tons of brochures and booklets so you can find things to do close by....We love that we are soo close to Fractured Prune and Bonkeys and grocery stores/ drug stores are a few mins away as well as lots of dining.

Looking forward to booking again for next summer! We love our "summer home"( even if it's for only 1 wee it feels like home!

Beautiful, comfortable property. Lots to do, close to all. Loved everything about it.

  • 5 of 5

The owner was lovely to work with and really made us feel welcome. Property was very well equipped, clean, and had everything we needed and more. A great property for a group, especially with kids. Lots of little touches that the kids appreciated. The amenities were great, very nice pool, we didn't golf, but the course was very well kept and many people seemed to be enjoying it. I would highly recommend this property and hope to stay there with my family again. While I was at first concerned we might be too far from town, I really came to like that we could be in town in minutes, but come home to a very quiet and comfortable place without all the bustle of being in the middle of everything.

We throughly enjoyed our stay! The condo was perfect and had everything we could possibly need. Our whole family fit very comfortably size-wise, and the views during sunset and sunrise were beautiful - viewed from both the living room and the balcony. Even on the occasional rainy day, we enjoyed playing the wide selection of board games provided. And, being a family of six, visiting the grocery store often, we appreciated that the condo was close to the grocery store. Also enjoyed a fairly new coffee shop that was close - called Drifting Grounds - driving around the corner to pick up fresh fish for dinner each night at Steamer's Crab and Seafood market and being fairly close to Good Earth Market for good gluten-free cafe and grocery selection (for any fellow celiacs!). Point being, we found this location to be better in terms of access to stores than being right on the beach, which was still reasonably close. Hope to return next summer. Five stars!

Just one building away, there are some benches with beautiful views of the bay and you can see the Indian River bridge. On July 4th, we stay there and can watch the fireworks up and down the coast from Dewey Beach, thru Bethany and some further south. The kayak launch is just a short distance away. You can go crabbing from the dock there.

Bethany Beach is a short 3 mile drive away but the traffic gets very heavy on weekends in the summer. We avoid the beach area on the weekend and plan to stay at the pool those days.

The Delaware Seashore State parks are nearby. We usually drive north 4 or 5 miles along the coast to go to those. One is dedicated to driving on the beach and surf fishing. Or, you can drive south from Bethany and go to the State beach there. Both still have some of the World War II towers.

Bethany Beach boardwalk is small and has no amusement rides but has some great activities such as weekly bands playing and movies on the beach.

For the 'big' boardwalk experience, drive south about 10 miles to Ocean City, MD. Beware of high traffic in summer. Or you can drive north about 10 miles and go to the boardwalk at Rehoboth.
