Property description

Bethany Beach, Delaware is one of the Quiet Resorts. Located in southern Delaware it has a unique charm. There are family friendly attractions and an oceanfront boardwalk and bandstand with free concerts throughout the summer season. The beaches are guarded from Memorial day to Labor day. This is the perfect secluded getaway cottage and yet it is only three blocks from the beach and within walking distance of one of the best crab houses at the shore. Nestled on a quiet street, here you can relax and recharge your batteries. There is an over-sized screened porch on the front for cookouts or for that book you want to read or a game of ping pong. In the back a spacious deck surrounds a 4 foot deep pool for the kids or for lounging, you may never go to the beach. Our cottage features four bedrooms (one on the first floor and three bedrooms up). Two bedrooms feature queen sized beds and two bedrooms have a double bed down and a single bed bunk on top. There is a full bath on each floor. There are two queen sized sleep sofas. We will furnish all linens and towels. You only need to bring your beach towels.

With two separate decks and a large screened porch, everyone can find the best spot to relax and fill their needs. On the second floor there is an outdoor deck with seating for eight of more with a table and umbrella for shade. On the first floor you will find an over-sized screened in porch with a table for 6 or more and ample seating to enjoy a meal outdoors or relax with a good book. At the rear of the cottage is 20 foot fiberglass pool surrounded by a spacious deck with chairs and a lounge for sunbathing or a nap. You can wander to the beach or enjoy numerous books, board games or cards. Four beach chairs are provided. For a rainy day you will find five DVD players and five VCR's and six televisions, a DVD library and VCR library. There is a large cement parking pad in the front that can accommodate up eight vehicles back to back or two side rows of four.

Bethany has a public library, with lending privileges for vacationers. It also conducts frequent children's activities and a wide variety of books and videos that can be borrowed by the week. Bethany has one of the nicest beaches in Delaware and is perfect for the after dinner stroll. For ice cream you can walk our boardwalk or attend the nightly musical entertainment. Fishing is permitted with a permit during the early morning hours. Nearby in the town of Rehoboth you will find many outlet malls for shopping as well as night spots and amusement parks. Ocean City, Maryland is about a 30 minute drive to the south with all it's attractions. There are numerous public golf courses within 20 minutes of the cottage. Charter boat fishing, wind surfing, swimming, clamming, kayaking, jet skiing, sailing, sport fishing, beachcombing, surfing, shelling, miniature golf and windsurfing are all available in the area. Dining, from casual to fine dining, is available everywhere. You can eat in a different restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday of your visit and never go to the same place twice.

Owner info

About the owner: Hi, I am a native of Delaware, but have lived in Maryland, Pennsylvania and Florida. I am semi-retired, whatever that means, and manage our properties in Delaware and Florida. I will meet at our home on your arrival and walk you through show you where the circuit breakers are and answer any questions you may have about restaurants, shopping, movies, etc.. We know your time is limited and we want you to have a wonderful trouble free time, that's why we are hands on.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Undesignated:
This was our original beach cottage in Fenwick Island and we moved it to this lot that we owned in Bethany 6 years ago and redid it and added the decks and swimming pool. We always loved it and we hope you will too and return to be part of our "family".

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are in the best part of Bethany, we are on a quiet street with very little traffic and yet close to everything. Depending on the time of year the woods next door are full of lighting bugs to almost light your way. If you want to read a book you can, play horseshoes, you can, swim in your own pool, you can, ride a bike, you can, go for a walk, you can, shop, you can, go fishing, you can, play golf, you can, play tennis, you can, go to the beach, you can. In short, if you can think of it, it is probably nearby. Have a wonderful, restful vacation.
