About the property

1.5 blocks to Bethany Beach and downtown

The charming and original beach cottage we owned has been replaced with a new and larger home built by Delaware builder Marnie Custom Homes featuring a custom kitchen designed by Jennifer Gilmer Kitchens of Chevy Chase, MD. Located just one and a half blocks from Hollywood beach on the boardwalk in family friendly Bethany and one block to all the action downtown. Park your car in the garage or driveway and leave all stress behind. The new house comfortably sleeps 16 (6 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, 2 outdoor showers). With an open kitchen and living area, grill and screened-in porch, an elevator and small office, this house will make beachside vacations an ease. The new house will be perfect for multiple family or generational get aways. We will also provide a shaded area for dogs plus a fenced in dog run. For an extra fee per animal, dogs will be accepted as part of the rental.

About Anna and Blair Fernau

We are a family of four who enjoy this relaxing place by the beach with a great location that provides lasting summer memories for our kids. We loved the small beach cottage but it wasn't big enough to accommodate friends and extended family. That is why we built the new house. The location in downtown Bethany is perfect for our family and yours! We specifically wanted a place that we knew our children would enjoy and where we could feel safe allowing them to walk to the boardwalk and watch a movie on the beach or get an ice cream cone. They love building sand castles on the beach!

Anna and Blair Fernau purchased this house in 2015

Why Anna and Blair Fernau chose Delaware

The location of this house is it's best feature -- just one a half blocks from the beach and 1 block to downtown. There is parking for five standard cars in front, in the garage and behind the house. Bright, colorful and casual. This is beach relaxing at its best.

Need more stars!

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolutely wonderful experience. Great place for a family reunion. We ranged in age from 4 to 64, and everyone loved it. The house is beautiful, well-stocked, and clean. We were close to the beach,and to town, but, it was very quiet. The owners responded quickly to any questions. 4 of us traveled from Scottsdale, AZ. We usually go to LaJolla, but, the rest of the crew was from PA, so, we decided on Bethany Beach and were not disappointed. Just a wonderful time in a wonderful location. Thank you for thinking of everything.

Beautiful, well decorated home!

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely, well stocked and beautifully decorated. The living and dining areas easily accommodate a large family and there is plenty of parking. We have booked again for the summer as you don't find many houses like this one to rent in Bethany!

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home and it was perfect for our large family gathering. The house is comfortable, beautifully decorated, and well provisioned for a large group. The house is in a convenient location and we could easily walk to the beach or shops and boardwalk.

The best of Bethany Beach!

  • 5 of 5

WOOWWW!!! What an absolutely beautiful home. The Big Easy is something straight off of HGTV! When we first arrived at the house, we had to pick our jaws up off the ground as we walked around and entered each new room. It is massive, and took us so long just to make it around to see each room in the home. Nothing was left out in the planning, building, or decorating of this home. The elevator was such a nice touch for carry things up from the garage to the 1st and 2nd floors. The "outside"/garage showers were so clean and in the perfect location. The ground floor mudroom/laundry room would be perfect for a big family staying the week. Each bedroom has its own gorgeous, spacious bathroom with beautiful tiles, each one so unique. The bedrooms were spacious and beautifully decorated. The grand room (living room/kitchen) had to be everyone's favorite. It was so amazing to gather everyone and hang out. Lastly, a perfect location and property as well. The firefighters across the street were so friendly and kind and were able to help with any additional questions we had. This property is also only a short walk to the best. We would love to come back and enjoy this beauty next summer for sure! Don't miss out on this amazing home- as you won't want to ever leave!

Needs some work to get to perfect

  • 3 of 5

The furnishings are very nice, and the house has a cute, beachy look. The single bathroom is in need of a renovation, however. The toilet runs unless you do some very specific wiggling of the handle, the only venting is an open window that lets in the heat, street sounds, and the eyes of the next door neighbors. The screens for the screened-in porch have big tears in multiple places, allowing mosquitoes and moths in. If the house received those repairs it would be perfect.
