Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in South Bethany Harbor - Naomi's Peace

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 20 foot dock and a 15 foot wide boat ramp we own the lot next to the house so you have free roam of it too, bring your boat, launch from our property, store the trailer in the side yard, dock in the back yard! 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. If you want to take your boat out early in the morning to fish or crab all you have to do is walk 20 feet from the house. 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 - Best of Beach and Bay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home with us. It is truly the best of both worlds, right on the canal with access to the bay, and within walking distance of the beach. We had a great time. We took Bob's fishing boat down to Maryland and ate at Harpoon Hannahs. We also went north and took the Assawoman Canal to Bethany Bay. Also had plenty of beach time, and although Bob didn't catch anything, he had a good time trying. Your home was very comfortable and clean. Master bed was very comfortable. Sami and Maggie (woof!) had a great time also. We'd love to come back same time next year, as September is one of our favorite vacation weeks. Thanks again, Pam and Bob.

A Great Time!

  • 4 of 5

Naomi's Peace was a GREAT time for the whole family. The location was close to everything, the beach, the shops, and the restaurants. The view of the canal was lovely. The property was spacious and the house was clean. We had the extra bonus of vacationing with our dogs. The owner was very accessible when we had any questions.

All the comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this house. John is very easy to work with and is beyond patient with over excited guests when answering questions. I cannot tell you enough about the location of this house. My husband and I are huge runners and there are a million different routes and trails to run. My dog Gus and I SUP twice a day right through the canal in the backyard. You are a couple of blocks from the beach...which is good because it's not crowded and located in a great neighborhood. You have parking passes to park at the beach. You are 5 minutes from the Bethany Boardwalk and a short drive to Ocean City.

If you are looking for a great, comfortable place that truly feels like home, don't hesitate, rent this house! We will be back!!!

My husband and I would stay there again. Lovely!

Lovely home. Great access to everything. Excellent dining nearby. We would place a channel listing by the television, just to forgo the slow channel surfing. Other than that it

was wonderful. Irene Z
