About the owner: We live in Washington DC and love getting down to Bethany with our teenage children whenever possible. We hope you like our home as much as we do and treat it as if it were your own. Bethany is perfect for a family vacation and our house is large enough for 2 families to share or a perfect spot for the extended family reunion. Please call us if you have any questions 202-362-9108.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, The Sanctuary: We live in Washington, D.C. and love to head to the ocean whenever possible. The beach was recently replenished by our last Fall storm which brought sand and increased the size quite a bit. There are miles of state beaches within a five minute drive of our home. The town beach and boardwalk is a mile away.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our house is located in the Sanctuary, a new community situated adjacent to Delaware State parkland. This provides a natural setting for migratory birds and sightings of heron and bald eagles. The sun rises over the ocean and sun sets over the parkland are amazing.
Being so close to town, we love going to concerts at the bandstand on the Bethany Boardwalk and going to see the Shorebirds baseball games at the Frank Perdue Stadium. Bethany is a wonderful place and very family friendly. It is also fun to take a picnic to Assateague Island for the day to see the ponies!
