Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Partial week of August 20-25 (Sunday-Friday) is available ($700). Additional availability in the off-season. (September is nice -- the crowds are gone, the water is still warm, and the air isn't too hot.)

The online availability-calendar is up-to-date.

Detached house is in a private location, wooded lot, by a canal, located at the end of a quiet dead-end street. It is one mile from the beach.

No smoking. No pets (but there have been dogs in the house in the past). We like family rentals. The person who signs the lease must be one of the tenants.

The house is twenty years old, good condition, nicely decorated and furnished. It is not a large place, but it feels roomy, with high ceiling in the living-dining-kitchen area and lots of windows. The kitchen is fully equipped and stocked (but no dishwasher). Canoe, kayaks, and bicycles are provided (but not guaranteed).

Rentals are Sunday-to-Sunday, so driving traffic is usually light, makes for a relaxed arrival.

Our Bethany home has two bedrooms. The master bedroom has one queen-size bed. The other bedroom has two twin beds (with a roll-away third twin bed). The living room has a queen sleeper sofa (not very comfortable, sorry). The capacity and limit of the house is six people (4 in beds plus 2 in sleeper-sofa). Please bring your own linens and towels.

The house has a full bath (shower stall, no tub), a half-bath in the master bedroom, and a really nice outdoor shower.

There is a canal next to the home. A full-size canoe and two kayaks are provided at the house, and paddles and life vests should be stored in the outdoor shower.

Two child life vests (up to 100 lbs.) should be inside, above the washing machine. If you take the canal to the left (southeast) you can paddle into the Assawoman Wetlands Refuge (osprey and bald eagle nests, blue herons, etc.). Basketball hoop on site.

Relaxing and charming

  • 5 of 5

This is a cute house in a great location. It feels very secluded, even though it's just off the road. We found the house very comfortable and well-stocked. It was perfect for our four-person family--we loved the screened in porch for meals, and my kids really enjoyed the hammocks under the deck. The owner was fabulous to work with, and the property was obviously well loved and maintained with care. We're coming back for another stay this year!

Owner's Response: We are glad that other families enjoy our Osprey Nest as much as we do. I have it set up to be relaxed and comfortable (not pristine and antiseptic).

Great location, exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the osprey nest! My husband and I stayed for a week to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The house had everything we could possibly need to cook a meal. We enjoyed the screened in porch for dining. We spent most of our week enjoying the state park beaches and assateague island. Perfect centralized location with a private feel.

convenient and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Convenient for riding our bikes to the beach and into Bethany. We really enjoyed being so close to the canal and exploring with the canoe. We rode our bikes to several of the wildlife refuges.We loved the screened in porch.

Cozy home-base for a week at DE beaches!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the Delaware beaches, and this cozy home was well located next to the Assawoman Canal and a mile from Bethany Beach. The house was well stocked and cozy, and even had 2 kayaks and a canoe that our two teen daughters and my partner used to explore the Bay. After long days outside exploring Bethany Beach, Fenwick Island, and Rehoboth, we enjoyed cleaning off in the outside shower and coming home to the collection of games and movies. It was a perfect home-away-from-home for a family of 4 vacation. During our 7 day stay, we ate breakfast every day on the screened porch and had most dinners at local restaurants. However, the kitchen was well equipped to make a meal. I highly recommend this down-to-earth house!

We had a great vacation !

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a great location in a quiet neighborhood yet close to everything that we wanted to do. We really enjoyed the screened in porch and everything that we needed to cook at home was available to us. We will definitely stay again in the future.

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home away from home for our family. All the creature comforts you need are there and we were quite comfy. Outside, we enjoyed the use of the kayaks in the lovely canal yards away, bikes, basketball, hammock, swings, picnic tables and the screened in porch. The home is centrally located for day trips both south and north of Bethany and very close-by the boardwalk and shops. The owner was there to greet us and make sure we had all we needed before leaving. We really enjoyed our stay and glad we booked here!
