The house was just right in size. It was what we were looking for

  • 3 of 5

The kitchen utensils were pretty sparse. We cooked in a lot so we did have to scrounge around for dishes & utensils. The vacuum needs to be replaced for sure. Much bigger recycle & trash cans!!!!

But as stated, we enjoyed stay

Wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

A marvelous home, in a great area. We loved all the level areas for walking, a very quiet neighborhood. The house itself, show some wear, but for us it gave it a lived in gel. Had all the appliances and gadgets needed, to make our long weekend terrific! Our dogs adjusted well, making it a positive first time event for all of use! We would definitely stay here again!

Late summer Delight

  • 3 of 5

We had a relaxing and enjoyable visit to the beach and staying at this property. The weather was perfect! The neighborhood is really lovely and quiet which we appreciated. We were allowed to bring our dog which was a bonus. The house was certainly spacious and fairly comfortable for up to four during our visit. My biggest negative were the guest beds. The master bedroom bed was really comfortable but the other two rooms had beds which were not. The house was very neat and clean. The carpeting and window blinds were a bit worn. Could use some updating. I liked the spacious bathrooms and the kitchen was very adequate.

All said I would consider staying here again. Being able to bring our dog is a big consideration for us and even she said she had a great time!

Cozy pet friendly getaway

  • 4 of 5

The property was nice. Great location as it is a short drive to the downtown boardwalk, beach and restaurants. Highly recommend Bethany Boathouse for drinks, food is average. For GREAT FOOD AND DRINKS hit up Bethany Blues Bbq. Our dogs enjoyed the salt pond and we were happy they could tag a long.

Lovely stay, just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter, dog and I stayed at this lovely home in mid-July and we had a perfect, relaxing week. We went on a family walk around the golf community each morning with our pup, then spent the rest of every morning and early afternoon at the beach (a less than 10 minute drive away) and then went to the community pool every afternoon. Then each night we enjoyed dinner at one of the nearby restaurants. The home is clean and comfortable and we had absolutely no complaints. We simply could not have had a more relaxing week to celebrate our wedding anniversary and will definitely do it again! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Nice, comfortable, clean and quiet. Perfect size for my family of four.

  • 4 of 5

Good location. Close enough to the beach but far enough away from the town and beach traffic. Golf is perfect there and the pool is great! We found a great path to ride into town and avoid the main roads. It's easy access made for a fun ride into Bethany. Overall, a great location.
