Recent Ocean View property reviews

  • Family vacation

    "Property was nice and well maintained, large and pleasantly laid out for separate families sharing space, quiet and private. Would have liked another queen bed, for third set of adults. Convenient to restaurants and less than a block from a large grocery. Clubhouse was well appointed, gym was well equipped, and pool was good for children. Last year we stayed at a place in South Bethany, which was equally nice, but both years, flies were troublesome. This has something to do with the way the wind blows off the ocean, we were told."

  • Beautiful, well equipped, at home feeling

    "We rented this place a few years ago and it was perfect! Before we bought our own place at the beach, we rented each summer and this was one of our favorites. Nice back yard and view of the golf course. The layout of the house is wonderful! The kitchen was nicely equipped. There's a nice screened porch as well as a deck. The house is nicely maintained and feels so homey. Its an easy walk to the Bear Trap clubhouse, as well as the pool, gym, and shuttle to the beach. The Bear Trap community is very nice. Great for bike riding and walking. It was really difficult to leave!"

  • Huge house with great ammenities

    "We just got back from a wonderful stay in this beautiful home! The pictures don't do the house justice. The space is wonderful and everything is so nicely done. Every room is immaculate and the gameroom/loft is a great space for teenagers. We had 8 people in the house and the space was amazing. We especially loved the dining room and deck seating for 8. The owners were wonderful and were honestly a phone call away with any questions we had. The community pool is right in the backyard and was clean and well cared for. We have stayed in Bethany Beach before at Bear Trap Dunes and this house surpassed any we have stayed in before! Honestly a gem for anyone!!"

  • Great experience, highly recommended!!!

    "Great experience, highly recommended!!! The owner was wonderful to deal with and we found the home to be all it was advertised to be and more! The location is convenient, and it was nice to have easy access to a Giant grocery store (about a 3 minute drive). The area is very nice as well, and just a short drive from the ocean. This was our first visit to Bethany and our family of six found the town/area to be very family friendly. Everyone in our family wants to go back…and everyone wants to come back to this home, so we have already made arrangements to return next year!"

Ocean View Travel Tips

The Advantages of Staying in Ocean View Vacation Rentals

Ocean View is a beautiful golf village community just a few minutes from the charming town of Bethany. Quaint shops and bandstand entertainment give this town a friendly hometown atmosphere. There is a regular shuttle service for those who want to avoid the hassle of parking at the beach. The sandy beach and boardwalk provide endless things to do along the Atlantic Ocean. Relax in the sunshine with a good book, go swimming or enjoy boating and the other watersports which are available. The local area has plenty of small shops and restaurants. Your vacation villa has many facilities within its own community including swimming pools, hot tubs and fitness facilities, allowing vacationers to be as active or lazy as they please.

The beaches and boardwalks of Rehoboth Beach and Ocean City are both a short drive away where trendy boutiques, shopping and a choice of restaurants can be found along the boardwalk and beachfront.

Many of the vacation homes and condos at Ocean View are located on a golf village community, making them ideal for golf-lovers. Golf course views of the fairways can be enjoyed from the condos and golf clubs are within easy walking distance.

Staying right on a resort enables guests to use the facilities including swimming pools, spas and restaurants on-site and to meet new friends with similar interests. Vacation rentals are always fully furnished and equipped to a high standard. Luxury kitchens with full-size appliances make preparing meals for all the family very easy, especially for those requiring a special diet. Choose a villa large enough for everyone to have their own room and bathroom, or share a larger villa with friends and split the costs.
