                            Nancy and I wanted you to know that we had a wonderful time with our family last week. We rented some kayaks and enjoyed the sunsets on the bay. Our sons, their wives and our grandchildren especially enjoyed having the beach assessories handy.

                            We just got home from our FABULOUS vacation! We so enjoyed your lovely home - "the sunsets were our favorite part of being there and sitting out on the top deck as the evening darkened". Thank you for your generosity with your home and possessions and for making it such a welcoming place.

                            This was our first beach vacation in 10 years. It is a spectacular home with amazing views from every window and deck. Thank you for exceeding my expectation of an "autumn vacation". I truly wish I didn't have to leave!

                            We really enjoyed our stay! It was our first vacation in Delaware after many years on Cape Cod and we will definitely be back. The views were great and the beach and pool were enjoyed by all. Thank you for opening your home to us!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1999

                          About the owner: We love North Bethany Beach, a true quiet resort area. Executive living at its finest in a gated community with easy access to a rich variety of activities in the immediate area. This includes a private swimming pool, tennis/basketball court, nearby sparkling ocean beach, the slow culture of Southern Delaware and racy Ocean City, MD. Did I mention birding and discount shopping - no sales tax? While we love living just outside Philadelphia, PA, its such a treat to come here. Our 7 grandchildren love it too. We've flunked retirement twice, attained degrees from Drexel University and generally appreciate every minute of life we can.

                          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, The Cove:
                          North Bethany is a high value up-and-coming area which is almost fully developed yet outside the city limits. We wanted a place where we could be on the bay to observe nature at its best (we've even seen seals) but within walking distance of the beach (minutes) and I could walk to get a cup of coffee (a small restaurant is nearby). We got all three in Waters Edge plus a gorgeous home. You are welcome to come and share it with us.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Situated on a one acre private peninsula, surrounded by water on 3 sides, you never lose touch with nature and sight of your surroundings. The beach sunsets are simply spectacular. Privacy galore.
