About Nancy Economos

This beach home gives our five children and their families access to the beach and time to be together. We like to rent our home to other large families.

Nancy Economos purchased this house in 2004

Why Nancy Economos chose Delaware

I have been coming to Bethany Beach for over 50 years. My father and mother were teachers and loved to spend time at the beach during the summer. When my dad retired, he opened a small shop in nearby Millville, DE creating and selling handmade silver jewelry and metal sculptures.

What makes this house unique

Our beach home is close to one of the loveliest private beaches along the east coast of the USA. Our home is very large and includes seven private suites, allowing mult igenerational families to spend time together.

You'll love your stay here -- we sure did! :-)

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I have rented a number of vacation properties over the years. We generally have 6-8 adults in our party... and we've found it very challenging to find a space where people did not have to share bedrooms/bathrooms (except for couples) and where the bed/bath accommodations were relatively equal. (More often than not, there are one or two bedrooms that are really nice, while the rest range from okay to pretty crappy.)

We were delighted to discover on arrival that this was the PERFECT accommodation for us! The seven master suites were all equally excellent rooms, lots of space, comfy queen/king size beds, windows, TV, and each with a well-kept private bathroom! There's also considerable additional sleeping space in the top floor which seems like it would probably be ideally suited to a large herd of kids -- but we were the right number of adults (no kids) to fit the suites, so we only used the upstairs to play ping pong and foosball.

Another frequent challenge for my group is to find a place that has a serviceable kitchen -- we like to cook and eat well. This was easily one of the best appointed kitchens I've ever seen in a vacation rental -- it really had EVERYTHING you could want to cook for a large group. Plus the two ovens, two sinks, and two dishwashers GREATLY simplified cooking and cleanup. We never have any shortage of people willing to help -- it's just rare that all the help can squeeze into a confined kitchen space. But the redundancy of cooking and cleaning spaces really made a considerable difference in how quickly we could wrap things up and get back to shooting pool or playing a game of cards.

The living spaces were also ideal for a group our size too. Often when visiting together there's not enough seating and someone ends up sitting on the floor or bringing in a not-as-comfortable dining room chair. But here in the living room, pool room, as well as kitchen, there was never any shortage of seating. So wherever we meandered and ended up congregating in the house, we were always comfortable.

Last but not least, the owner was friendly and gracious and made a point of making herself accessible for any issues we might run into. We really could not have asked for better!

To sum up, we will DEFINITELY be returning to this wonderful home in future if it is open and available when we need it. Offhand I can't think of any higher recommendation I could offer than that :-).

Great house for families!

  • 5 of 5

The property is great, the fact that we were there through a very bad N'or Easter and pretty much stayed inside for 3 days yet didn't have cabin fever is a testament to the spaciousness of the house. The pool table and game room for the kids is a great feature. We didn't get to use the pool or hot tub due to the weather. The only complaint is that the pine trees may drop some large pine cones on cars if you're in the driveway and the win picks up. The property is accurately described and very clean. We're hoping to stay again next year when we come down for our annual end of summer trip.

Hidden Gem in Bethanny Beach

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful house for 2 nights for our family reunion this past weekend. The pictures of the properties shown on the website truly resembled the actual home. It is a gorgeous home with elegant staircase in the front hallway. all the 7 master bedroom size rooms on the 1st and 2nd floor with individual spacious bathrooms and the 3rd floor loft with more beds & a full bath, was very useful and time saving for us. The house was clean, huge & updated to accommodate our big extended family of 25 adults and 5 kids. Owner Nancy was a pleasure to communicate with at every step of the way, regarding our questions and concerns from the time we had showed interest in the house. The community's private beach is about 2 minutes walk, which was a wonderful! The 3rd floor had a play room for the kids with lots of toys. The young adults had a great time with the pool table, hot tub, and watching TV on big screen on the main floor family room.There is community pool too. We loved the updated kitchen which was big enough for all of us fit in and have conversations over breakfast and Dinner. It was also fully equipped for a big group like ours. The Deck adjoining the kitchen was a big asset for lunch time. Don't forget to eat Grotto's Pizza at least once! They are now on my personal list of Top ten Pizza's in USA. WE had a great time at this house and have created memories for lifetime to cherish. There were 2 super markets and a drugstore within a mile. All you have to do is bring some pillow cases, bedsheets and towels of your own and the rest is taken care of at the house.Its also in a cul-de-sac which is safe for kids to play outside. 10 cars can easily fit in the driveway.

Perfect House for the Family

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the opportunity to take a last-minute trip to Bethany and frankly, after reading some old reviews, I was a little skeptical about this house. I contacted the homeowner and she assured me that the house was in great shape and she put my mind at ease. I am happy to report that I LOVED THIS HOUSE!!! All seven (giant) bedrooms had their own bathrooms & large closets/dressing areas. I was so happy that I could go to my room for some solitude when my family/friends w/kids were getting a bit too loud for me. There was also a "secret" top floor that had 4 rooms with twin beds and adjacent to that was a big play area w/ lots of toys, air hockey, ping pong, etc. There were lots of things to do in the house and not enough time to do them. Next time, I would play pool and sit in the hot tub a little more. I loved the beach and it was great to wash the kids off in the outdoor showers under the house. BTW, the bricks/wood near the showers are a bit unstable so we had to be careful walking around. Also, there wasn't much privacy for an adult to shower but at least the kids were shampooed and sand-free before they even came into the house. We all had a great time at the house & the beach was easy to walk to & fabulous! We made lots of food in the kitchen and ordered take out (the obligatory bushel of crabs) and ate them on the deck outside of the kitchen. Even though the house had air conditioning on, it would have been nice to have a screen door leading from the kitchen onto the deck. The deck can be a little noisy because it is at the end of the cul-de-sac near route 1 but it's not a deal-breaker. The only other minor thing that I want to mention is that I wish the kitchen had a bigger stovetop. It only had four burners and one would assume that there would be a bigger cooking surface for such a large home. I also would've liked a larger pan for making pancakes, but I am being nitpicky. I loved the double oven and big fridge though! There was also a secondary fridge on the ground floor that we used for our beverages/beach snacks. The house was really nice and the best part is that I didn't have to clean it:) My biggest regret is that I did not stay longer.

Needs Major Work!

  • 1 of 5

This house was in totally UNACCEPTABLE condition. After checkout, I emailed the owner listing some of the MANY problems with the house and requested a response but never heard from them! I guess they already had my money and didn't care. I would NEVER recommend this house for the following reasons:

1. cleaning crew left hot tub only 1/4 full. we had to fill ourselves and hot tub never warmed to higher than 85 degrees.

2. entire house was left very dirty. floors were dusty and dirty, much of the house had to be re-cleaned by my group, kitchen was dirty and full of flies, etc.

3. comforters and pillows were absolutely filthy. some appeared to not have been washed in years! we had to wash EVERYTHING before even considering using it.

4. cabinet door in kitchen broke and fell, injuring one of my guest's feet. this was very dangerous and we were lucky she wasn't injured more seriously.

5. broken bed in one of the bedrooms. the mattress caved in causing a very uncomfortable sleeping situation.

6. was advertised (and listed in lease) as having two plasmas - there was only one. the one in the family room was supposed to be 50" and have surround sound - neither of those things were true

7. several doors from the house to the outside did not lock. the door to the deck in the family room had tape that was painted over patching an old door handle hole!

8. several of the decks were very unsafe and had loose beams.

9. broken shower door in one of the bathrooms that also fell on of our my guests

10. the house is poorly maintained in general. the walls are filthy, many walls had been patched and never repainted, furniture is full of stains, missing posts from stair railings which left stairs unsafe for small children, unsafe ladder to roof deck, non working ice maker, children's toys were all dirty and broken.

11. cleaning crew arrived over an hour before check out and entered the house without knocking. refused to leave the property until we asked repeatedly.

12. when we arrived the recycle can was overflowing and was never picked up all week. The owner came by on Monday and saw that it was still overflowing but did nothing about it.

13. none of the bedrooms had a pullout couch as advertised. this caused issues for one of my group members as her child had no bed in which to sleep.

I felt ripped off and uncomfortable the whole time b/c there was nowhere to sit that even felt clean. We spent as much time out of the house as possible!

Owner's Response: My husband has been managing our North Bethany Beach property for the last two years. It is obvious that he needs help. I will be in Bethany at the beginning of April, 2012 to address maintenance issues and to assist with the property management. I plan to be in Delaware through the summer and into the fall. I have purchased a new refridgerator with ice-maker, having new carpeting installed on the first floor landing, bought foosball and air hockey games, as well as many new toys, purchased mattress pads and pillows, replaced dishes and wine glasses. A new thermostat has been installed in the hot tub. Additionally, many rooms are being repainted and re-decorated. I can assure you that our beach home will be clean and comfortable. All upholstered items will be clean or replaced. I will be overseeing and assisting the cleaning crew. I sincerely think that you will be happy if you choose to stay at our beach home.
