Recent Private Homes, Downtown property reviews

  • Great Home!

    "This home has a great open floor plan that is perfect for extended family gatherings. Kitchen is well-equipped and the deck featured a nice dining table and chairs, as well as a brand new grill. The home was very clean, with up-to-date furnishings and comfortable beds! Best features: walking distance to the beach and 'downtown' stores, decks off every bedroom, nice lighting and furnishings. Lovely master suite upstairs. Worst feature: House faces the fire station, so the view from the front yard decks is not exactly 'picturesque'...but this was hardly an issue...our family spent all of our time on the back deck. This is our 'extended' family's third time renting in Bethany, and we thought this house was, by far, the best we had rented! Would happily rent here again!"

  • Beautiful house in perfect location

    "We stayed here for the first time in 2014. It is by far the best house we have rented in Bethany in the thirty years we've been coming to Delaware. Great open space, plenty of seating, bright and clean and well maintained, lots of bedrooms with bathrooms en-suite. Adults and kids had a wonderful week. Owner was great to deal with. Will definitely be back."

  • 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!"

  • Ladies Weekend Getaway

    "This was the perfect getaway for a group of 40 something moms! The spacious house allowed us to spread out comfortably. The gathering spaces were perfect for our group to chat and play board games. The proximity to Main Street was ideal! Walking into town for breakfast, dinner and shopping was refreshing and convenient. The property is well-maintained and beautifully decorated. We all agreed we'd like to return next year!"

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.
