About Mickey Matthews

Our family has been vacationing in Bethany Beach for about 47 years now. Our home was built in 1980 and is owned by three brothers and one sister, all who grew up in Montgomery County Maryland. It has been our families’ home-away-from-home for more than three generations.

Mickey Matthews purchased this house in 1980

Why Mickey Matthews chose Delaware

Over the past 34 years we have shared the Matthews Family Bethany Beach House with countless friends and relatives, and we have shared it with many more families and guests over the years through rentals. One particular family has come all the way from St. Mary's Pennsylvania and has been our honored guests for 27 years. Many more families are repeat guests and come back to see us again. We have a lifetime of wonderful memories here in Bethany Beach and offer our guests a wonderful vacation home to begin many wonderful memories as well.

What makes this house unique

Bethany Beach is known as the 'Quiet Resort' and it lives up to it's name. Although the days can be busy and fun-filled with many activities, the evenings taper off as the crowds wind down where one can sit back, relax, have a beverage or two, listen to the waves roll in and enjoy the nice evening breeze. The Matthews Family Beach House is uniquely located on a corner lot 1/2 block to the boardwalk and beach, and 1 short block to Garfield Parkway, the main drag. There are many retail shops, restaurants, amusements for the kids, putt-putt golf, a playground, and a basketball court . . . lots to do. We just know you'll enjoy your stay!

Very nice town and location

  • 4 of 5

Nice house and great location. The porches were fantastic and being so close to both the beach and town was very convenient. I would recommend this to others and would stay again

Perfect location

  • 3 of 5

1. Location a block from the beach and downtown Bethany, if that is what you desire. We had grandchildren, so location was perfect. BUT across from busy hotel so little privacy and sometimes noisy.

2. Theoretically sleeps 10 people BUT we are all tall and double beds are just not long enough. The queen sofa mattress needs to be replaced. So thin that one person injured knee on the metal coils.

3. Kitchen well-equipped for cooking

HOST WAS GREAT AND ALWAYS AVAILABLE FOR MY MANY EMAILS AS OUR RENTAL DATE NEARED

As great as it was 20 years ago

  • 5 of 5

This is a very beautiful house at a great location. It doesn't matter that it is a short walk to the beach, I believe my family has found there vacation spot for many years to come. You don't have to drive your vehicle anywhere just drop the keys and enjoy the beach and the shops are all with in walking distance. The house was clean and very warming as soon as we have walked into the house. I am ready for the enjoyment of this house for many years to come. I would definitely rent this house out again.

We loved our stay here! The proximaty to the beach is excellent. We spent mornings on the deck having coffee and early evening happy hours there too. The deck is large enough with 2 picnic tables to have crabs and beer. Easy walk into town and plenty of off street parking. The beauty of this location is it's active during the day and quiet late night. The large deck is up one level so it feels private. We will definitely go back. Thanks for sharing your family home with us!
