About Wendy Ney Manley
After college we joined the Dewey Beach scene and fell in love with the area! As singles Dewey was a blast, but as our family grew and we aged, we elected to vacation in the 'Quiet Resort,' as Bethany has come to be known. Our neighborhood is very family oriented, where you know your neighbors and a last minute pot luck dinner with friends, family and neighbors is the standard fare. Kids make friends easily in the area and ours have been in many more of the neighboring homes than we have! Bring your bikes, take walks along the canals, lose yourself in a good book (or borrow one of ours!), cook a meal in our well equipped kitchen or sample the many great restaurants suitable for any pocketbook and you will love the beaches! We bought our home as an investment property and it has been a vacation rental ever since. Many families and friends have made many memories, some coming back year after year. We have tried to outfit the home with those things that will create the perfect back drop for relaxing, hanging out with friends, beaching it, fishing, or creating that huge meal! Our family lives northwest of Philadelphia, our kids are now older in college and high school. Our children love vacationing in South Bethany, as do we. We hope you and yours will too! We invite you to place your reservation and make some memories of your own!
Wendy Ney Manley purchased this House in 1999
Why Wendy Ney Manley chose South Bethany Harbor
We work hard! And we play hard! With many friends local and a far, we wanted a place that we could entertain larger groups without feeling cramped. Unfortunately we don't get to use the property very much during the height of the rental season, but when we are there our friends and family typically join us. Some day we hope to retire and spend some more quality time there, but until we do, the house is there for you to enjoy!
What makes this House unique
This is not your typical rental! Our home has a personality, it is not a sterile environment, warmer than a hotel room and the peach walls, thoughtful decor and inviting setting will make you smile each time you walk in the door. Our favorite spot is the front porch with the rockers. We typically start the day on the front porch on the warmer days with coffee, appetizers and a favorite beverage to cap off a perfect beach day and a night cap before heading off to bed. The screened porch w/ceiling fan off the kitchen is where we take many of our meals, and the open back porch is a very pleasant location to tan and read when seeking solitude. The neighborhood is residential, with lots of fun places to walk or bike ride. Especially when you head out to the bay, you won;t be disappointed with the views! The house can cater to ten people easily and you won;t feel cramped and can find places to retire to when looking for some 'me' time. The kids simply adore the Bunk Room on the ground floor, where they can stay together, away from parents. We invite you to share what you liked in our guest book and what would perfect your next stay in our home.

The house is very accommodating and comfortable. The rooms and beds were comfortable. The house is well maintained and up to date. You have everything you need in the kitchen. Bathrooms/showers were great. We really enjoyed our stay.
So glad you enjoyed your stay in South Bethany! We look forward to welcoming you back down the road!
Family fun weekend at the beach
The house is very close to the beach, very spacious and clean. The owner responds quickly and is very accommodating. The house is also dog friendly, which is always a bonus. Nice backyard for her to walk around. Will definitely come back!
Glad to hear the house worked well for you and your four legged friends. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!
Perfect for family gatherings
We have always loved the walkability of South Bethany Beach. With a toddler and dog in our gathering this year, it was great to have places to walk safely. The canals are beautiful, but we were pleased to find a house with a yard away from the water.
Everything in the house was in excellent condition. Beautifully decorated and inviting. Plenty of room for our crew of 7 to find places to hang out together as well as find quiet places for reading. I especially appreciated all the beach gear available for our use.
Amazing property and location. Ample room for my family of 5, and led to a great weekend
So glad the space worked for you and glad you enjoyed the property and location. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future!
Wonderful Beach House!
We have been coming to Bethany Beach for years and with a growing family needed to upgrade. This house was perfect! Three floors, two decks, it has everything. We were able to walk to the beach and enjoy our favorite places to see, eat and have fun! Wendy is great to work with. We look forward to returning next year!
And we look forward to your return! Glad you enjoyed the "upgrade!"
great for two families
we had two families of four (with two dogs and four kids under the age of 4---oy) and we found this property to be perfect. Close to the beach, close to the canals, but not so close we had to worry about children falling in. It was a cozy but not so tight that we felt claustrophobic. Wendy was super responsive anytime we had questions pre-trip and during.
Glad all enjoyed your time in South Bethany! Hopefully next time the weather will be a little more cooperative! Thanks once again for vacationing with us!
Well of course there is the beach, just a short walk away (2 blocks or 10 minutes walking).....But in addition, boating, fishing, wind surfing and kayaking are just a few of the water activities enjoyed in South Bethany which is nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the inland bays. Not to mention the numerous public paths, endless walking trails and downtown Bethany that affords vacation goers a plentiful assortment of shopping, fine dining and recreation. We are located in a quiet family oriented community surrounded by canals and beautiful views of the bay, where children ride bikes and play in the streets, where people jog and take walks without reservations about traffic or safety issues.
Don't miss the regularly scheduled outdoor concerts on the Bethany Boardwalk! Sea Colony - an internationally recognized tennis facility - is within walking distance and sure to challenge even the most competitive player. Only a short drive to Ocean City, Md, Fenwick or Rehoboth and all the other Delaware Beaches where you can enjoy golfing, amusement parks, additional fine dining and tax-free outlet shopping at more than 140 stores in nearby Rehoboth Beach.
Don't forget your bicycles - there's lot's to see, do and explore!
