South Bethany Beach house description

Enjoy the view of the canal from this adorable pet friendly ranch home located just 1.5 short blocks from the white sands of South Bethany's recently replenished wide guarded Beach (Memorial Day - Labor Day). Sorry but we only rent to families. We do not rent to groups, to young adults, or to families without dogs. Hope you have a fun and SAFE senior week.

This beachy cottage features 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths (one is a master bath), FREE wireless high speed DSL throughout the cottage and yard, FREE local telephone use, and a convenient office area in case you can't get away without working.

There is a fully equipped kitchen with all the standard appliances. The family room has comfortable furnishings including two queen size sofa beds, color TV, DVD/VCR player and radio. There is a full size washer and dryer in the storage area which is big enough to store your bikes and fishing gear as well - or put them in the outside storage shed. An outside shower is available to rinse off the sand after a fun day on the beach or out in the boat.

This unique cottage is located a few blocks away from a shopping area which includes family style dining, gift shops, a pizza restuarant, a gourmet cafe, etc. Because it is on the water you can bring your boat (or rent one) and enjoy beautiful sunset cruises, or quiet excursions into the national wildlife park for viewings of eagles, blue heron, etc. You can catch crabs and small fish right off the dock & enjoy family fun in the large fenced in yard (a license may be required for adults).

The cottage is located halfway between Rehoboth Beach, DE and Ocean City, MD. This general area offers tax-free outlet shopping, watersports, mini golf, championship golf, fine dining, boardwalks, etc. all within walking distance to a half hour or less drive from the cottage.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: Hi- Thanks for your interest in my Cottage By The Sea. I have been blessed with living in the Delaware Resort area for over 12 years now and am very happy to be able to share it with those who want to vacation in this area. My dogs have always been a very big part of my life and that's why I chose to make my property dog friendly, because I know how hard it is to find a nice rental which allows dogs. I think most dog owners are responsible and will respect my property as they do their own so I am happy to welcome them. I hope anyone who rents my Cottage By The Sea will have such a wonderful time that they'll come back soon!

                  Why the Owner Chose South Bethany Beach:
                  The Delaware resort area is such a wonderful area - the temperatures are moderate, the scenery is beautiful, the people are friendly, and the ocean... what to say about the ocean... Not only do we have the ocean, we have the bay and all the inland waterways feeding into the bay, one of which is in the backyard of the Cottage By The Sea. Walk one and a half blocks and your feet are in the white sands of the Atlantic Ocean beach at South Bethany, or take your boat or kayak out into the inland waterways to see the wildlife such as eagles and blue heron and stay for a gorgeous sunset. Why wouldn't you buy a vacation rental in this area? By the way, if you want to buy a vacation rental in this area, I can help you with that as well! I'd be happy to share with you the enjoyment of owning propety in this area. Sorry but we only rent to families. We do not rent to groups, to young adults, or to families without dogs. Hope you have a fun and SAFE senior week.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  In South Bethany you are half way between Ocean City Maryland and Rehoboth Beach Delaware - both of which have big boardwalks with rides, etc. Rehoboth also has the tax free outlets. Bethany Beach has it's own boardwalk which is very kid friendly and safe. There is live entertainment on the bandstand at night in the summer, lots of good food, and fun in a very close proximity to the Cottage By The Sea. Sorry but we only rent to families. We do not rent to groups, to young adults, or to families without dogs. Hope you have a fun and SAFE senior week.
