  • Wow! We all loved your home!

    "This home is everything you think it will be from the pictures and then SO much more when you actually stay here! Our family with kids age 8, 15, & 17, parents and grandparents LOVED every minute of time spent at our home away from home. Paula has thought of everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. The beach chairs and parking pass make trips to the beach so easy. The wonderful linens and comfortable beds make sleeping away from home a breeze. Having towels & bedding provided made packing so much easier! The pool at the house made time relaxing at home enjoyable for all! We all felt that we were living in a Pottery Barn ad for the week.... the home is gorgeous but yet so inviting and relaxing! We have rented a couple nice homes through VRBO over the years in different parts of the country and have NEVER been this happy with our choice! Thank you Paula for sharing your wonderful home with us!"

  • Magnificent Bethany Beach House!

    "This house was absolute perfection! It is a great vacation home for family and friends. The kids absolutely loved the bunk room and having their own place to hang out and watch TV. The convenient boardwalk/sidewalk off the back of the house makes for a short walk to the beach. We especially enjoyed the screened in porch and back deck for morning coffee and late night parties. The well stocked centrally located kitchen made cooking and entertaining enjoyable. We also appreciated that the house was spotless and well furnished; the entire home is furnished with Pottery Barn furniture including the beds which were exceptionally comfortable. If you are familiar with the Resort Quest rating system this house would be Platinum for sure. The Bethany Beach Boardwalk, restaurants and shops offered a great place to walk, bike ride or go for a morning run. Can't wait to do it again next year!!"

  • Amazing!

    "This spacious home is perfect for family gatherings! We had three families who stayed here at the same time and we all had plenty of space. I have rented many beach homes and none have been decorated as well as this one - from the furniture to the beautiful new bedding and accessory pillows, this place is top notch! I was impressed with the hardwood floors throughout, the upgrades in the kitchen including stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops (which are also in the bathrooms). The house is also very clean and appears to have been recently painted throughout - it feels like a new home from the moment you walk in the door! The enclosed backyard that connects to the cement carport are ideal for kids to safely play or ride scooters. The covered decks are perfect for relaxing and socializing. The elevator made it very convenient to get our luggage to the top floor. The close proximity of the beach and shops is ideal. Great value for all that this house offers and we will most certainly be staying here again in the future!"

  • The most relaxing week!!

    "The house has everything you can ask for and more! It was immaculate and well stocked with things you needed for everyday. We were two familes with six children and we had all the space we needed. The kids loved the rec room, especially the ping pong table, the beach bikes and walking to the beach which was so close. The adults loved the screened in porch! It was perfect place to relax in the evenings. We loved our stay at the house and look forward to returning again. Thanks again to Bonnie and Scott for sharing your home with us."

Private Homes, Downtown Travel Tips

Downtown Bethany Beach Condos near Fenwick Island State Park

Although Delaware is one of the smaller states, it is packed with fun. Whether you are a history buff or beach aficionado, you will love staying at Downtown Bethany Beach condos. There are six miles of coastline in Bethany Beach, Delaware that include boat ramps, charter boats for fishing and Fenwick Island State Park. This seaside village where you can enjoy Downtown Bethany Beach lodging is also close to Ocean City and Rehoboth Beach for even more fun in the sun and sand. Choose Bethany Beach rentals for their nearness to the beach.

Wander through Downtown Bethany Beach Lodging

Wander past the Bethany Beach Loop Canal that backs up to many of the Downtown Bethany Beach condos. This loop canal was finished in 1910 so that visitors to the area could achieve the final leg of the journey in a single boat. Before the canal was dredged, the last leg of the trip had to be accomplished by a horse-drawn bus through deep sand. It became a loop because the shallow drafting boat “Allie May” could not back up; at the First Street dock, a loop was formed so the boat could make the return trip to Rehoboth. Downtown Bethany Beach lodging offers visitors to the region a chance to re-live history with the Bethany Beach Loop Canal story.

Free Concerts near Bethany Beach Rentals

Visit the Boardwalk from Bethany Beach rentals for musical entertainment during the summer months. There are free concerts at the Bandstand from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Guests who rent Downtown Bethany Beach condos in September can stroll along the Boardwalk for the Annual Bethany Beach Boardwalk Art Festival. Artists display clay pieces, paintings, drawings, jewelry, glassware, photographs and prints as well as beautiful sculptures. There is also a farmers' market where you can get fresh produce, cheese, eggs and flowers to take back to your Bethany Beach rentals.

Downtown Bethany Beach Condos Provide Ecological Tours

Ecology is an important part of life in Bethany Beach. A leisurely day trip from Downtown Bethany Beach lodging could take your family to James Farm Ecological Preserve. There are tours as well as exhibits at the preserve. Visitors will learn about the wildlife in the area and get to view the region at any one of the three observation towers. You can expect to see a diverse landscape with short bushes and tall trees.
