Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: The house was originally purchased by our mother in 1993, I believe. When mom retired, she made South Bethany her spring through fall retirement home. She passed away in 2004 and left the home to my siblings and me so that we could keep the tradition of gathering the grandchildren together. We have been renting it to close friends and friends of friends and decided to give VRBO a try and see how it works. We keep the house updated and clean, and it is very well-equipped and homey. I work in higher education and live in Utah, but I have three siblings in the DC area who maintain the home. This house is very special to us and we hope the VRBO renters find it as special a place as we do.

Why the Owner Chose South Bethany Beach:
At the time mom bought the house, the Delaware shore was virtually 'unknown' and she liked the quiet nature it afforded. She wanted a place where all the grandkids could gather and play, and this beach is perfect for that. We love the proximity to the beach itself and that it is a private beach. The towns of South Bethany and Bethany Beach take such wonderful care of the dunes and the shore. The beach has fewer restrictions on what you are allowed to do, but still there is a definite dedication by the residents and renters to keeping it clean and safe. The canals near our home and the bay provide a wonderful place to take a walk and spot a variety of birds and wildlife. There’s a bike path that runs along the neighborhood—perfect for a walk, run, or bike ride either north to Dewey Beach or south to Ocean City.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love taking walks along the beach. We often get to enjoy watching dolphins frolic in the water during those walks. Since the house is such a short distance to the beach, it makes it easy to come and go throughout the day – great when you have young children or just want a quick bite to eat. We enjoy the quiet and friendly aspect of the neighborhood. Depending on your mood and activity level, there are so many activities available in the Bethany Beach area, from reading a book on the beach to bike riding to parasailing and even surfing. At night when it is quiet, we can sometimes hear the ocean. Bethany Beach is such a lovely, beautiful place that it will make your time away from home so very special.
