                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: Cindy and Bob Moses grew up vacationing with their families in Bethany Beach and Ocean City, MD respectively. Cindy is a Real Estate Broker with Keller Williams Realty in the DC area. Bob is an attorney specializing in real estate and business law. They share their home in Potomac, MD with 4 cats.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Turtle Walk:
                      We had a difficult time finding rentals in Bethany Beach that were large enough to accommodate our extended family and at an affordable price. We built this home to provide enough bedrooms and bathrooms so that everyone would be comfortable and to have enough public area to spread out and relax. Owning in-town allows us to purchase beach parking passes that we provide to you so you can enjoy free, unlimited parking on the residential streets in town and by the beach.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The large screened porch adds another 'living room' to the house. With 2 ceilings fans, this area is breezy even if the wind isn't cooperating.
