Recent South Bethany Beach property reviews

  • great house

    "We've being renting houses in this neighborhood for the last 3 years and this house is the best. It is really close to the beach but not too close to the highway so traffic noise is not a problem , it is very cozy, clean and beautifully decorated. The kitchen has everything you may need. Screen porch and a deck are perfect. Definitely hope to stay here next year!"

  • Fall getaway

    "First visit to South Bethany Beach to celebrate October birthday, what a wonderful time. Very comfortable oceanfront home. Very mild weather for the end of October; spent days on the beach napping, shell seeking, kite flying and walking. Water too chilly for any more than just toes. Decks perfect for coffee and sunrise, dolphin watching and star gazing at night. Sunset dinner at Fager's Island a must do. Lucked out with a perfect clear sky for the sunset, mild enough to sit outside. Beach access right in the back yard perfect. Would like to return again with entire family."

  • Great house. Fabulous location.

    "We just finished our second summer here. It's a great house. The owner has excellent design taste and made every room pleasant and attractive. Everything is in perfect working order. The owner must spend a lot of time here herself because everything is nice quality down to the dishes and the bathroom accessories. We normally spend all our time at the beach, but at this house we found ourselves spending a good amount of time on the deck by the water or kayaking in the bay. The kayaks can be delivered right to the house. When we did go to the beach, it was an easy walk. The kids liked spending evenings in the shops at Bethany. This house doesn't feel like a rental home. It feels like a beach house you would want to have yourself."

  • Wonderful Time for our Family

    "This house was perfect for our family vacation. While the house could accommodate multiple families, our family of three wasn't rambling around; we immediately felt right at home here. The access to the canal and beach were perfect. We could easily walk to the beach with our 5 year old and when we didn't want to walk, parking was a breeze with the pass. The rooms allow for multiple sleeping arrangements. We would recommend for friends, families with young children, and multiple families. A perfect place."

South Bethany Beach Travel Tips

South Bethany Beach Vacation Rentals in the Quiet Resort

Just a two-hour drive from Philadelphia International Airport and situated on Coastal Highway 1, the area of South Bethany Beach is known as "the quiet resort." It is also accessed on Route 113 and during summer, this is often the best road to use. As a beach resort, South Bethany Beach condos are most popular during summer but the region benefits from good weather through the fall. South Bethany is in Sussex Country, along the South Delaware coast. It sits between Atlantic City and the Bay.

South Bethany Beach Beach Homes for a Traditional Beach Vacation

Visitors come to South Bethany Beach vacation rentals mainly for the miles of beautiful, quiet beaches. The charm of the area is that it is not like the larger, louder resorts further along the coast, such as Ocean City. Here, the boardwalk is not lined with amusements but the bandstand has regular entertainment and there are the traditional seaside pleasures such as an ice cream, fries or pizza. Children will also enjoy a visit to Viking Golf Theme Park, the Indian River Lifesaving Museum and DiscoverSea Shipwreck Museum. Along Garfield Parkway, visitors will find a nice selection of boutique shopping. Within a short distance, there are also several nature reserves and state parks.

Plenty of Activities Surround South Bethany Beach Homes

The area surrounding South Bethany Beach beach homes is known for typical water sport activities. Kayaking is a popular sport, with scheduled kayaking trips available in the Delaware Seashore State Park, Assawoman Canal or at Rehoboth Bay. There is also a three-hour tour of the Indian River Bay. On the beach, there are designated areas for surfing and other board sports such as windsurfing and areas for surf fishing. The bay’s shallow water makes it ideal for young children and provides excellent areas for sailboarding and kite surfing. For anglers, there is fishing from the shore, as well as deep sea fishing, or the chance to take a boat out into the bay. The Indian River Inlet is one of the most popular fishing spots. Here, anglers can catch bass, bluefish, flounder and tautog.

For a great day trip from South Bethany Beach, visitors here may enjoy an excursion to Fenwick Island. This is a barrier island between Little Assawoman Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. This charming little town is home to Fenwick Island State Park with 344 acres of shoreline and beautiful ocean. It is often referred to as a paradise for fishermen, with both flounder and bluefish among the species to be caught here. The island offers excellent dining and quaint local stores. Further to the north lies Delaware Seashore State Park where visitors will find mile after mile of wide sand dunes and the Fenwick Island Lighthouse. Other excellent trips include Millville, with the nearby Cape Henlopen State Park with its famous "walking dunes." At Clarksville, there is an undiscovered jewel of Holts Laning State Park. This park was once a family farm and now visitors enjoy activities such as bird watching, wildlife viewing, fishing, hiking and crabbing from the pier.
