Comfortably sleeps 16 in bedrooms (no sleeper sofas) with two King master suites (one on the main level), one Queen with additional twin ensuite, one Full, and a bunk room (sleeps seven). All beds are covered with patchwork quilts.

Four bathrooms plus an outside shower mean no one has to wait in line. And two on-demand water heaters mean no one takes a cold shower.

                    Eight of us spent a little more than a week in this spacious and bright home in Bethany Beach that provided a terrific home base for a wonderful week in Bethany Beach that included lots of beach time, trips to Ocean City's boardwalk and amusements, and (of course) mini-golf. The house's layout was great for our group. There was a master suite with a king-size bed for each set of parents, and a spacious bunk room for the kids. With four full bathrooms, there was never a wait - and always an ample supply of hot water. The kitchen was well-equipped and well-maintained. The owner was helpful and responsive. Extra bonus: We didn't realize how great it would be that the house comes with beach parking passes that allowed us to park on residential streets near beach access points. With four small children between us, we found it much more convenient to drive to the beach each day - and we always found parking within a block of the beach. If you are looking for a lovely home in Bethany for a large group (we were eight people, but the house could have easily accommodated twice our number), this house is definitely it.

                    Recommended for: Families with young children, families with teenagers.

                    This house was well-furnished and well-cared for. My large extended family with lots of children felt at home here. It was convenient to the beach using the trolley and the parking passes made driving to the beach easy. The property managers were great. The listing and photos accurately represent the house. We would definitely return.

                    Recommended for: Families with young children, sightseeing, tourists without a car, girls getaway, families with teenagers.

                    We had an amazing time at camp Terrapin. The house was very clean and all of us enjoyed it greatly. The rooms and bathrooms were very spacious and plenty for our guests. Everyone loved it and we appreciated the beach house.

                    What a lovely home! We had a gret time - sorry to leave today. Beach is beautiful! Family met up with us for weekend. Fun for all! We went fishing with Captain Bob and Captain Trpy of the El Shadai and caught many black sea bass, a couple of sharks, and a stingray! What a great fishing day! They were a great pair to fish with for the morning. All in all a great vacation! We hope to be back soon.

                    Dear Cindy, We had a wonderful weekend in your home. We are celebrating our oldest daughter's high school graduation along with our "adopted" neighbor daughter who also graduated high school. We brought along our middle daughter and son as well. The weather got warmer as the days went by and today is the warmest day yet and we are leaving : ( The food was great all week at the restaurants. We had many laughs and videos and pictures. uncle Brad almost got hit by the ad boat and the lifeguard had to call him in with his whistle, We cheered for the lifeguard! We are used to having more near misses when on vacation, well pretty much anywhere. We don't want to leave. We would like to stay longer. I'm sure we will be back soon. Your home is very comfortable..

                    Dear Homeowners, We just rented your home to celebrate a dear friend's birthday weekend on what would normally be a very somber and sobering day -9/11! There were 14 of us ranging in age from 25-76 and we had an amazing time! The home is lovely with a warm & innviting decor - all necessary amenities. Beach passes for parking were an added bonus! We would definitiely rent again! Thanks so much for sharing your home with us! Much apprecuiated!

                    Dear Aunt K, We loved the loose atmosphere of this Turtle Community. We had the whole gang inside and let it all loose! The Rusty Rudder's prolific buffet proved bountiful and crab-tastic. We got wet, we got sandy, Thanks to the spacious backyard there were no tan lines to be had.

                    We had a wonderful family vacation with my husband's 2 sisters and their families. Weather was great, very hot all week. We went to Rehoboth Boardwalk, outlets shopping, Harpoon Hannah's in Ocean City for dinner. Also to downtown Bethany and shopped. Beach everyday. This was the first time we all vacationed together and all the cousins got along fine. Many memories and lots of laughs.

                    Our family had a wonderful time here in Bethany beach. The home was perfect for our entire family - Grandparents, 2 sons and their wives, 7 children and 1 baby. Many card games were played on the screened in porch and all cousin bunk room was an absolute hit (for kids and adults) We loved the family-centered life you provided with the home. AWESOME MEMORIES!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: Cindy and Bob Moses live in Potomac, MD and grew up in the DC area. Cindy is a Real Estate Broker for Keller Williams Metro Realty and Bob is an attorney who specializes in Real Estate and Business Law. Between us, we have 5 siblings, 10 nieces and nephews, and 5 cats. We both grew up spending summer vacations in Bethany Beach (Cindy) and Ocean City, MD (Bob), so Bethany Beach is truly our second home.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Turtle Walk:
                  My family has vacationed in Bethany Beach every summer for over 40 years. As the family grew, it became increasingly more difficult to rent a house to accommodate everyone at an affordable price. We decided to build one and discovered that many groups of friends and families had similar needs - where everyone could stay under one roof, instead of renting multiple small houses. So many of my friends tell the that their kids don't want to vacation with them anymore! I feel lucky that my entire family looks forward to our Bethany Beach vacation every summer.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  There is lots of space for everyone, with generous bedroom sizes and lots of bathrooms. We even installed on-demand water heaters so no one would ever have to take a cold shower. The wrap-around porch is especially popular with my family as there always seems to be a lovely breeze blowing across it. The kitchen is large enough to accommodate several cooks at once. The kids love the bunk room that sleeps 7 and has its own bath. We have off-street parking for 8 cars and the rental includes 2 beach parking passes. I love the quiet neighborhood, yet so close to the beach.
