"...the views were spectacular. Our vacations have not compared since our stay here.''

"Every level of the house gave us fabulous views of the ocean; mesmerizing! We fell asleep listening to the waves crashing!...''

''...the many ocean views and sensation of really being at the beach every moment of our stay - that was what made it extraordinary...''

-- From our guest reviewers on Homeaway & VRBO.

If you vacation at the shore to enjoy the beach, then you've just found the perfect spot in a private, timeless beach home that's been a favorite getaway since the summer of '68....

LOCATION - This northernmost oceanfront home in Bethany Beach literally sits on the sand with the beach at your door and 2800 preserved acres of oceanfront and dunes to the north. Tucked away on one of the most tranquil and scenic spots along the mid-Atlantic with a wide sandy beach and natural, preserved setting, this unique beach home offers the opportunity to truly relax and immerse yourself in the beach experience 24/7 while on vacation.

FIVE PORCHES/DECKS & ENDLESS VIEWS - Beach views, ocean views, Delaware State Seashore views... Watch your family play on the beach just outside, have dinner oceanfront on the screened porch or take in a sunrise over the Atlantic while watching the dolphins swim and the fishermen at the State Seashore reel in their first catch of the day - all without leaving your house!

DIRECT OCEANFRONT - Step off your deck DIRECTLY onto our private beach! No dragging chairs, coolers or kids for blocks or even over a dune crossing and no worries about finding a bathroom, packing up for lunch, or what to do with bored kids who want to go back to the house.

IDEAL LAYOUT INCLUDING TWO OCEANFRONT BEDROOMS EACH WITH THEIR OWN PRIVATE DECK - A spiral staircase leads to two oceanfront bedrooms letting you enjoy miles of unobstructed ocean and dune views and the sounds of surf crashing just outside your door. A great layout for families or two couples since each enjoys their own oceanfront room with beachfront deck or porch and separate bathrooms. The third bedroom is ideal for adults or kids with two additional double beds and the third floor loft offers extra living or sleeping space with a twin daybed plus a pull-out twin trundle. A queen sleep sofa on the first floor provides additional sleeping options.

ACTIVITIES - Beach and Delaware State Seashore just outside your door offering swimming, fishing, jogging and biking, kayaking and surfing plus beach volleyball at our oceanfront community court, private tennis courts, large playground and a private pavilion. Some of the area's best biking and hiking trails and nature centers (Bethany Nature Center, James Farm, Bethany Lifesaving Center). Fantastic seafood restaurant right in the community with a great happy hour and even a walk up window for those nights when you don't feel like cooking! And don't forget to grab a snowcone as the Jeep rolls down Ocean Road in the late afternoon...

OR JUST RELAX - Life truly is a little slower here. If crowds, beach contests and loud parties are your thing, you'll likely find better choices. If you want to slow down a little, relax and make some great memories, you're in the right place and we look forward to hearing from you.

Beds: 1 Queen, 2 doubles, 4 twins (including twin (xlong) daybed & twin trundle), 1 Queen Sleep Sofa.

Ordinarily, we try to keep the rental periods beginning and ending on Sundays, but exceptions are possible, depending on rental demand.

Guests wishing to get a full beach day on check-in/check-out dates can utilize the Delaware State Seashore South Inlet Day Area which is on the ocean 1 mile north of our house and includes a large parking area and facilities including changing rooms, snack bar and a guarded beach (www.destateparks.com).

About Tim G.

A family owned property purchased by three siblings and their spouses whose families have been vacationing at Atlantic Watergate properties for many years, often for the same week renting multiple houses in the complex.

We feel fortunate to be the stewards of this unique and special beach home and to be able to share it with others.

Tim G. purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Tim G. chose Tower Shores

In the summer of 2010 our family rented this house for a week. We have rented many beach houses over many summers, but for the entire week we were here I said to my wife, 'If we ever were to buy a vacation house, this would be the perfect place.' Amazingly it came on the market in the winter of 2011, and here we are.....

Although all of the Atlantic Watergate properties are terrific, this is a one of a kind end unit that not only sits directly on the beach but has the added benefit and views of the dunes of the Delaware State Seashore directly north. In our opinion this is an unbeatable location with some of the best views along the Atlantic.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second summer staying here! The location is singular for the entire area being ocean front and directly next to the state park and dunes. We enjoy having such easy access to the beautiful beach. Usually nice and calm for paddle boarding right out front. Nice bike lanes make for easy access to ride south to the Bethany boardwalk or north to the Inlet. Hoping to return again next summer!

The property is exactly like a beach house should be!

  • 5 of 5

The house is "beachy" and comfortable. The views are fantastic. Being able to walk out the screened in porch and off the deck right into the sand is awesome! The beds were comfy and the location can't be beat! We had a great time and would definitely rent again!

The view will take your breath away.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time. The decor was perfect for a beach cottage. The space provided an environment where we could all appreciate the gorgeous view. We thoroughly enjoyed the screened in porch and loved the lights for evening dinners outside. Although we didn't make it to Matt's, we did get a chance to visit Bethany Beach, it was Mayberry cute. We were already planning our return before we left. It was an overall wonderful experience. Thank you for opening your home.

The dunes have their own unique ecosystem of interesting plants, birds and other wildlife on constant view. Additionally the oceanfront park offers fishing, surfing, hiking, and all the activities a state park has to offer - see the link below. Beach volleyball, playground, tennis courts, pavilion and regular visits from the snow cone truck!
