This is a townhouse-style home in Bethany Beach, walking distance from the beach (just under a mile). The immediate vicinity is a great area with many nice restaurants and other shops/stores. This private, cozy condo development has 8 units with a central courtyard. The parking lot is directly off Rte 26. Ours is an end unit with one adjacent unit. Our neighbors are very friendly! You can stay closer to the beach but it can cost you thousands $$ more for a week-long stay - this place is the best of both worlds.

About 10 miles south of Bethany Beach is Ocean City, known for it's highly commercialized miles-long strip of family-oriented restaurants & attractions, reminiscent of Myrtle Beach. Plenty of good golf courses near Ocean City.
To the north about 10 miles are Dewey and Rehoboth Beaches. Rehoboth has many great restaurants, a boardwalk, a fun daytrip (or eve/dinner trip) for families. Dewey is a nightlife hotspot mainly for the younger generation, live bands and bars are not hard to find.
In summary, Bethany has everything you'd want for a family vacation, and a day trip north or south to take advantage of surrounding beach towns can only add to the experience.
Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: My wife & I live in Northern VA, with 2 kids, and love going to the beach house in Bethany Beach, DE, as often as we can get there! The kids love it and so do we, there's no better way to get away from it all. I'm originally from Buffalo, NY, wife is from Wilmington, DE.
When we go to the beach, things we love to do are....
- Hit the beach! And of course, the hard-earned 4pm happy hour afterwards
- Sit out on the deck at night, play cards or trivial pursuit with a group
- Day trip to Rehoboth for Playland (kids) and a nice dinner out
- Day trip to Ocean City for mini-golf, go-karts, and seafood
- Cook up a feast at home one night - seafood, steaks, wine....throw a movie in for the kids
- Mondays - family movie night on the beach! (See pic in our 'photos')
- Thursdays - bonfire on the beach!
- Golf. A few courses in Bethany, many in Ocean City, some in Rehoboth
Bethany Beach is a special place for our family, our kids one day will look back on some great times there growing up. We wish the Bethany experience on anyone and hope you find it as great a place as we do!
