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.
