About Gerri O'Boyle

As children, both of our parents vacationed in Bethany Beach starting in the 1920's. Both my husband and I grew up vacationing in Bethany Beach with our families. Our 4 children have been fortunate enough to learn to swim, ride bikes, and golf at the Salt Pond. A fourth generation of O'Boyle - Toomey's now join us at our Salt Pond home. We rent the house only for a few short weeks in August. The rest of the time is reserved for our family. The house is clean, well stocked, with everything working when you enter. We most probably will be the last folks staying at the house.

Salt Pond is a very well managed golf development, teeming with amenities, (3 pools, tennis courts, work out room, snack bar, 18 hole golf course) one mile from the Atlantic Ocean. What ever the weather, there is something to do at the Salt Pond and Bethany Beach. Golf, tennis, boating, indoor fitness workouts, catching a movie, hiking or riding bikes along the the trail adjacent to Salt Pond are among our favorite things.

Gerri O'Boyle purchased this house in 1984

Why Gerri O'Boyle chose Bethany Beach

Our lot is uniquely located within walking distance to the pools, work out room, exercise classes, snack shop, club house, ponds and extra parking. At the same time, everything is far enough away to give us peace, quiet and total relaxation. The town of Bethany Beach can be crowded. At the end of a fabulous beach day we come back to Salt Pond and really relax.

What makes this house unique

Bethany Beach has developed a night life. It is lovely to have great restaurants, bars and fireworks at your fingertips. yet still be able to come back to the peace and quiet of Salt Pond. Children can safely ride bikes on our quiet streets. The golf course adds a unique element in that it reduces noise while adding wild life, beauty and keeping neighbors at bay.

Lovely place, beautiful view, wonderful location for family

  • 5 of 5

Every September we have a family reunion of some sort for my parents anniversary, (57 years this year). This was a perfect choice! All five bedrooms were very large (and we loved that 2 bedrooms were on the first floor). The dining room table and two porches were the heart of many laughs, stories and delicious meals shared! It was the first time any of us have really been to Delaware and the location was near everything we wanted to visit! There are walking paths everywhere and even a grocery store in walking distance. As a group, we could ask for nothing more!

It was a beautiful house!

  • 4 of 5

The house is very spacious, cozy and comfy. They even left us an extra key, which was a nice surprise. Only comment is how open the sliding door was to golf course as we were sitting in dining room. I'd suggest curtains for a little more privacy but a great place!

Wonderful house for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week in this house in Salt Pond, Bethany Beach. Close to town and the boardwalk, restaurants and stores. We cooked most meals and appreciated several places within the house to dine. Enjoyed the pools and the kids had fun at the playground. But alas, no time for golf. We spread out and used all bedrooms, and there was almost always someone on the porch or deck.

Perfect Bethany Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

The location of the house was perfect for what ever you are looking to get out of your Bethany Beach trip. The house alone is amazing for families to have dinners outside on the screened porch and large living space in a very peaceful neighborhood. The first tee to the golf course is in your backyard and the pool is on the other side of the tee box! All of this while you're a quick drive or bike ride from the beach.
