Guestbook comments from the manager

We had an absolute blast at Avery Cottage. It was extremely well stocked and comfortable. It was our best beach vacation in years. We loved South Bethany - it was nice and quiet. Our weather was perfect. We hope to stay there again!

We loved our time at Avery cottage. The house was perfect for us. Very convenient to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and comfortable. The house was also equipped with everything that we needed for a wonderful beach vacation. The other suggestion I would make is that it would have been wonderful if the outdoor shower had better shower pressure.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect. The house was spacious and clean. We very much enjoyed sitting out on the deck. If I had to change anything it would probably be the mattresses. They were much to hard for my back. We will definitely come back to stay again.

We've stayed here two years in a row, it's a lovely cottage. Clean and comfortable, very close to the beach! There's space for everyone, a convenient outdoor shower, a spacious kitchen, swings downstairs. Very homelike. Highly recommended!

Excellent Location For Chill Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with my in-laws (four adults) in early October and had selected this house because it was a good value for being so close to the beach. You only get a small glimpse of the beach from the deck, but you can hear the waves crashing which is very relaxing. House is cozy and bedrooms pretty small so if you want a lot of space this probably isn't the house for you. Also, the beds were only doubles so be prepared if you are used to sleeping in a king sized bed. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, and dishes and there were a good stock of games and puzzles, which we used because we had some rainy days. My biggest worry with rental houses is that they will be dirty, but this one was spotless which I REALLY appreciated! Overall, a wonderful value.

Avery Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I love the Avery house. I have been renting this house for 30 years, and it is always a special place to go in August. The house is great, nice dishes, furniture, appliances. It is in excellent condition and the owners are accessible if something goes wrong.

We hope to be asked back next summer.

Overall a really great stay

  • 5 of 5

Avery Cottage was just perfect for my 70 year old parents, my husband and I and our two small children. So close to the beach. Nice open space. Huge deck. Even a play area under the deck with swings and balls for the days it rained! The house was well-stocked with everything we needed, nice beach chairs and great acoustics (i.e. the kids could be asleep down the hall and we didn't have to whisper)! We can't wait to stay here again! The owner is super responsive and friendly. Thanks, Ross!

The Town of South Bethany is part of the Quiet Resorts of the Delaware Beaches. With so many choices for the entire family, the fun never stops! On the east side of town, relax and soak up the sun on our clean, wide, guarded beach, termed 'the best little beach in Delaware.' Our beach is ranked one of the cleanest in the nation. On the west side of town, enjoy boating, crabbing, fishing, sailing and kayaking from our 5-mile network of canals that leads to a beautiful bay surrounded by natural wetlands.
