Overview

About the property

Welcome to Naomi's Peace. You will love the view of the canal from this adorable pet friendly home, NEVER A PET FEE AT NAOMI'S PEACE! Just 1.5 short blocks from the white sands of South Bethanys recently replenished wide clean guarded Beach (Memorial Day - Labor Day). Sorry but we only rent to families. We do not rent to groups or to young adults.

This beach cottage features 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths (one is a master bath), FREE WI FI throughout the cottage and yard. There is a fully equipped kitchen with a brand new 25 cubic foot Stainless Steel Whirpool refrigerator and Samsung Stainless Steel microwave range combo and of course a new Stainless Steel Maytag dishwasher. Giant Food and Food Lion are close by so if you want to save from eating out, the kitchen is fully equipped. Antique Oak table and chairs with two leaves to put in if company comes. The family room has comfortable furnishings including one queen size sofa bed and love seat with a New 55 inch Samsung Hi Def TV and Blue Ray. Beautiful bay window to enjoy the view of the water. There is a stackable Maytag washer and dryer in the main bathroom area .The deck has a New gas grill and wicker table combo. An outside shower is available to rinse off the sand after a fun day on the beach or out in the boat. We have a kayak to paddle around the canal. The local bait and tackle shop, Hook em n Cook em, is run by some great good old boys that know where the fish are biting they also will put you on the right charter boat if you want to go for tuna or marlin offshore, you can call ahead they will tell you what's running hot and what gear you need. The back yard has mature fruit trees and an English Lavender patch. The master bed room has a 48 inch Hi Def Samsung TV, private bathroom and a private office so you can get some work done while you are on vacation, however we recommend you leave the work at the office. The middle sized bedroom has a brand new 40 inch Samsung Hi Def TV The house is guaranteed to be bug free by Terminix, South Bethany has lots of bugs especially ants for some reason. If you are looking for a regular beach house with tacky furniture this house is not for you. We have combined beautiful antiques with state of the art electronics, nothing from Ikea here all table and chairs are solid oak or solid mahogany. Many of the antiques are either 3rd or 4th generation of my family and have been passed down to me. Mom and dad bought the property in 1966 and have since retired to Florida, they bought before South Bethany was incorporated, mom voted against incorporating the town twice. Mom is a hoot! Town hall is a couple streets over and they are great, there is no question to silly and they are there to be of service to the renters and residents. South Bethany Police Department normally patrols our street twice a day and feel free to stop them and ask questions, two of our Police have been on S.B.P.D. for over 30 years. Please drive within the posted speed they are not shy about issuing speeding tickets and talking on the phone while driving is a $500 fine no warnings.

All major appliances are new, whole house was painted this winter, beautiful Hampton Bay ceiling fans installed, new wall to wall carpet and a brand new 3 ton high efficiency central AC/Heat Pump unit. We spent a whole bunch of money in the off season to ensure our guest have a great time, we take pride in our property and I am always available just a phone call away. How can we rent so reasonable? We do our best to want you to return year after year.

This unique cottage is located a few blocks away from a shopping area which includes family style dining, gift shops, a pizza restaurant, a gourmet cafe, etc. Dog beach is on the southern end of town, you can walk your dog year round there however they have to be on a leash. Nothing like letting your dog jump into the ocean! Because it is on the water you can bring your boat (or rent one) and enjoy beautiful sunset cruises, or quiet excursions into the Assawoman Wildlife Refuge, a true hidden gem one of my favorite places . There is a brackish water pond with an observation tower which means the migratory waterfowl can drink the water. This is the only one on the East Coast Migratory Flyway and the view from the observation tower is breath taking. You can catch crabs and small fish right off the dock (a license may be required for adults).

The cottage is located halfway between Rehoboth Beach, DE and Ocean City, MD. This general area offers tax-free outlet shopping, water sports, mini golf, championship golf, fine dining, boardwalks, etc. all within walking distance to a half hour or less drive from the cottage.

Great place! We really enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home! Exactly as described! I also found the bed we slept on to be very comfortable. I usually have difficulty sleeping away from home, but not there! It felt like Grandma's home - cozy and comfortable and had everything we needed! We enjoyed looking at the various nicnaks and antiques in the home - very eclectic. Also, a great location. Truly a special place! Thank you for opening the home up to others - it was a treat!

Beautiful home in South Bethany

  • 4 of 5

The home was very nice, clean, and comfortable. Everything was as described. However, there was no dock as shown in the pictures, which made it difficult to dock our boat.

Owner's Response: We have a brand new dock under contract to be installed first week of November. A support broke on the existing dock so we were forced to remove it. Sorry for the inconvenience, the new dock is very nice and we are sparing no experience. When completed in November I will be posting photos.

Just okay

  • 3 of 5

Master bedroom ceiling leaks from roof and bedspread was dirty (glad I brought my own), fruit trees hang way into the deck and have wasps, the dock pictured doesn't exist, and kitchen floor is very uneven and is sunk in some areas. It could be a really nice place, but felt misled and was over priced for what you really got

Owner's Response: AC condenser pan overflow, I had it fixed within 8 hours of notification from the tenants. The unit is new it was unfortunate but things break. The dock is being replaced with a brand new one and the contractor is scheduled to put it in. The floors ARE NOT uneven, there are 30 reviews you can review. It is not overpriced for South Bethany, I would suggest Ocean City the rent is much more affordable.

Fun at Bethany

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time at Bethany. We arrived at a clean well kept house and enjoyed it all week. The only thing needed to be done was to trim the fruit trees along the deck near the water front. We just had to duck our heads to get by.

Thank you to the owners for having this for us to use.
