Property description

Location, location, location ... this home in lovely South Bethany Beach has it! Wake up to beautiful sunrises, soak up the sun, stroll the beach, go crabbing or clamming or biking, dine at fantastic local restaurants, be lulled to sleep listening to the waves...does a vacation get much better than this?

This beautiful oceanfront home has 5 bedrooms (2 with king beds, 1 with queen bed, 2 with two twin beds each and a queen sleeper sofa) with sleeping for 12 people, 2 areas perfect for kids (a loft and a separate game area with a ping pong table, large screen TV, DVD player, and mini-fridge), 3 baths (recently renovated) with all the comforts of home: central A/C, a well-stocked kitchen for the casual cook or gourmet chef with many small appliances including a Keurig brewing system (bring your own K-cups!).

There is a large flat screen TV in the living room with an updated DVD collection for movie nights plus TVs in each bedroom. Also, there's free Wi-Fi internet access, plenty of board games & puzzles, iHome clock radios, a gas grill, a charcoal grill, a washer and dryer, beach chairs and sand toys, bikes for adults, a garage, a beachfront deck, direct beach access (right down the steps!) in relaxing South Bethany (dubbed a 'quiet resort') known for its family-friendly atmosphere.

Ask about our off-season availability and rates. No smoking.

Well-behaved dogs welcome with prior approval plus additional $100 fee per dog per week -- no cats please.

Please note that the bikes are for adults in your party. Bring your own helmets and your kids' bikes and enjoy the outdoors on wheels! Ride at your own risk -- owner and realtor have no liability for any accidents that may occur.

BEACH: The beach is public, but it is not ever very crowded because it is near a residential area. Lifeguards are on duty from Memorial Day to Labor Day, 10 am-5 pm (5:30 pm on weekends. Dogs are not allowed on the beach between May 15-October 15. Fishing and surfing are only allowed before 9 am and after 5:30 pm.

NEARBY: We often walk to McCabe's Gourmet Market in the morning to pick up breakfast and coffee to begin our day or cheese and appetizers to enjoy later in the afternoon while relaxing on our deck. Next to McCabe's is a place that will outfit you with what you need for a day of fishing or crabbing. We love to go crabbing, come back to steam them, and then dig in! There's Old Bay seasoning, a large pot, and mallets that we have stocked in the kitchen so you can do the same!

A STATE PARK is just a short 5 minute stroll down the beach. Also, there's a canal and some wildlife refuges nearby perfect for fishing, crabbing and boating. Small boats, kayaks and canoes have easy assess to launching at the canal.

The town of Bethany Beach is within walking distance (along the beach or road) with many fine restaurants, shops, arcades, and boardwalk. Stick around for some great evening outdoor concerts at the band shell on the boardwalk.

If it's more action and nightlife you're after, head just a few minutes north (to Dewey Beach or Rehoboth Beach) or south (Ocean City, MD) for tons of options from championship golf courses, mini-golf, shopping (great tax-free outlet shopping in Rehoboth Beach), restaurants, amusement parks, arcades, and nightlife galore.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: We bought this house because we both love the beach and wanted a place to enjoy fun family times with our children and extended family. The location was key because we wanted to wake up every morning on the beach and fall asleep listening to the waves outside. We find the wide sandy beach perfect because it is relaxing without the crowds and noise of bigger beach communities. The house is located on a quiet street perfect for walking and biking and just two blocks from Route 1 that connects you with other beach towns like Dewey Beach and Rehoboth Beach (20 minutes north) and Ocean City, MD (20 minutes south) offering plenty of shopping (outlet shopping in Rehoboth), restaurants, amusement parks, mini-golf, championship golf courses, nightlife, and more!

Why the Owner Chose South Bethany Beach:
We bought our oceanfront house because it has a cozy cottage feel, the beach is never crowded, and the location can't be topped. And there's not much more relaxing or rejuvenating than time at the beach!
