We have enjoyed our Oceanfront townhome for over 30 years, and we know you will too. The beach is your backyard!
The house is in the Atlantic Watergate section of the Towershores community, in North Bethany Beach. You walk out the back door and are on the beach. The beach side of the house has a covered porch with table with chairs and a private fenced, 'sand yard' that opens onto the beach, complete with small open deck for relaxing close to home.
The private beach is family friendly; you can fly kites, play wiffle ball, horseshoes, or beach volleyball at a community net. Fishing is allowed on the State Park beach. The community prides itself on their excellently maintained tennis courts and playground. Biking is safe and easy on the bike lanes throughout Bethany.
All of our summer rentals are at least one week long and go from Friday to Friday.

About: My name is Nicole and my father has owned this house since I was in 3rd grade. Now I have my own kids and cherish the experience of bringing them to the beach. My husband and I enjoy maintaining the house. Our goal is to continually update the amenities, while preserving the relaxed beach feeling.
Why Atlantic Watergate: The location is amazing. It is quiet yet with extremely easy access to downtown Bethany. We love to bike into downtown Bethany on the bikelanes along Route 1. The house is a short drive to Dewey Beach & Rehoboth where there are loads of restaurants, stores and outlets.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome: The best feature to this house is that you walk out the door of the living room and you are on the beach.
We like to take full advantage of the location by going onto the beach early, and coming inside throughout the day. It makes it so much easier, especially with small children. We also love to watch the ocean, especially from the 2nd and 3rd floor balconies, as it changes throughout the day and the week. See some good waves? You can run outside in time to catch them!
In the morning, you can watch an amazing sunrise over the ocean, and in the evening, an equally amazing sunset over the bay. The light is gorgeous in the afternoon on the beach and it's so relaxing to have a drink in the early evening sitting in the front yard. After dinner, we enjoy taking walks on the beach with our family and friends.
