About the owner: Our family of five has has enjoyed the Delaware Beaches for many years.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Bethany Lakes: We have vacationed for years in the Bethany Beach area. The location of Bayside at Bethany Lakes is perfect as it sits on the Indian River Bay - but is a short ride to the beach/ downtown Bethany. The community's amenities are exceptional. The clubhouse's indoor pool, top notch fitness center, game room and great room are great for families. The outdoor pool, tennis courts, dock and kayak launch provide other activities to pursue when away from the beach.
