About Marcia Plotkin
While we love living just outside Philadelphia, PA, its such a treat to come here. Our 7 grandchildren love it too. We've flunked retirement twice, attained degrees from Drexel University and generally appreciate every minute of life we can. We love North Bethany Beach, a true quiet resort area. Beach front living at its finest in a quiet community with easy access to a rich variety of activities in the immediate area. The sparkling ocean beach, the slow culture of Southern Delaware and racy Ocean City, MD. Did we mention birding and discount shopping - no sales tax?
Marcia Plotkin purchased this Townhome in 2007
Why Marcia Plotkin chose Tower Shores
Ocean Spirit is a uniquely situated home built right on the sand dunes. You can’t do that anymore! The ocean water occasionally even runs under the home. We enjoy sharing with our friendly clients all year-round. Peaceful, relaxing but with much to do in the area, we love just staring out the windows looking for migrating dolphins or indulging in our birdwatching and boating hobbies. As one guest said 'We've traveled all over the world and the sunrise here could match any we've seen anywhere.' We couldn't agree more. We hope you visit! North Bethany is a high value up-and-coming area yet outside the city limits. We wanted a place where we could be directly on the ocean to observe and join with nature at her best (passing dolfins) and we could walk to get a cup of coffee (a small restaurant is nearby). We got it all in Ocean Spirit plus a gorgeous home. You are welcome to come and share the magic with us.
What makes this Townhome unique
It's easy to love these surroundings. Ocean water at the back door, long ocean water views in all weather, birds flying up to personally greet you; an enormous sand back yard / shore bird sanctuary; spacious interior, etc. The usual WIFI, HDTV, computer, etc. What's not to like? Our lovely sand dunes offer spectacular ocean views from the beachside. Mother nature lives at our doorstep with entertaining shore birds and passing dolfins. Watch each day arise with the sun piercing the horizon way out at sea and early-bird boaters plying the surf.

This was our first time renting a beach property, and it was such a good experience that we want to do it again! Ocean Spirit is just amazing - right on the beach but still private. The unit itself was clean and well-kept; the furniture was all really nice and the floor-plan made it easy to accommodate 2 families without getting in each other's way. It is very well located, also, with very convenient shopping. The owners were considerate and easy to work with, and we even had a bottle of wine waiting for us - what a great touch! We will definitely rent this unit again and would recommend it to all -
Thanks Peggy (and Richard too). We didn't realize you were first-timers; you seemed so experienced with your questions and your review. We've met some amazing people through Ocean Spirit and hope to be renting for quite awhile longer. We very much appreciate your comments and hope to speak further in the year. Take care. - Marcia and Steve
Ocean Spirit...Wonderful vacation!
We have stayed on Bethany Beach for over ten years, all at Tower Shores. Ocean Spirit is by far our favorite condo right on the Beach. The owners are friendly and are wonderful to work with and, unlike other owners whose property we have rented, the Plotkin's live nearby in case anything is needed. We spent the week there with two of our daughters, their husbands and five grandchildren and had plenty of room...and fun! Bethany and Rehoboth Beaches have plenty of great restaurants and family activities nearby, and shopping at the three Tanger Malls in Rehoboth is sales tax free.
The beach is terrific, isn't it? So glad you enjoyed our remodeling and all the sights and sounds around us. Bethany is quite the family town with great restaurants and activities. We hope you visit soon again and bring those grandchildren again. Nothing beats being able to walk right down to the beach. Thanks again for your positive review. - The Plotkins (glad Steve got to meet you even if in a most strange way)
This was my 5th year staying at Tower Shores complex but 1st at this property. How can it not be great....it is right on the beach! 3 decks overlooking the ocean, enjoyed morning coffee and breakfast in pajamas on the deck and evenings under the stars! The owners were awesome with which to work!! Looking forward to next year!!
Thanks so much for your positive review; it makes me want to be there now and in p.j.'s. Always thinking about upgrades, we have begun remodeling some bath areas. Hope you will be able to join us. Have a great year and thanks so much for visiting Ocean Spirit. - Marcia
September at the beach is great
After spending the last 15-20 years at the Outer Banks we decided to come back to Bethany since it is closer to our grown children. This experience did not disappoint. Everyone loved being right on the beach -- and our stay had the added benefit of being during a full moon -- so the nights were gorgeous too. This house is well appointed -- and the beds are very comfortable. The location is ideal as well -- a bit out of the center traffic, but close enough to everything. Having a great restaurant at the end of the street was an added treat -- Matt's Fish Camp has delicious food and is a few minutes walk from the house.
We are so glad you experienced a positive week at Bethany Beach. We also used to go to N.C. until we discovered the relaxing, quiet beaches of Southern Delaware closer to home. During certain times of the year, we actually have almost the whole beach to ourselves. Matt's Fish Camp is an added bonus especially the lobster roll. We hope you will consider returning to experience more of our great restaurants. Thank you for your positive review. - Marcia and Steve
Superb House and Location
This was our 10th year at Ocean Spirit. The owners have not only maintained the house perfectly, but have also supplied extras such as beach chairs and umbrellas. The house was again perfect for our children and grandchildren who now range in age from 20 to 60. Our oldest granddaughter was just married and her brother toasted us at the wedding with special thanks for our Bethany Beach years. At night the stars seem touchable. Falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean and waking up to see the sunrise are unforgettable experiences. We also love the location and being close to Matt's Fish Camp for excellent take-out and dine in food. In addition, Rehoboth, Fenwick, and Ocean City are a short drive away. My husband and I and our family wholeheartedly recommend Ocean Spirit.
One of the benefits we've enjoyed in owning and renting "Ocean Spirit" is making new friends. We thank you so much for making it easy to host you and pointing out the pleasures of this ocean front property. We hope another 10 years is in the making especially with that new large t.v. and bathrooms on their way for next summer. Please stay in touch. - Marcia and Steve
Fantastic week on the beach
After going to the White Mountains for over 10 years we wanted a change. After the kids balked at driving 10+ hours to go to the outer banks, I recalled Bethany as a place I had been as a child. The unit was beautiful, and perfect for our family. Our 5 kids range in age from early teens to early 20's and they all had a great time. The place was very nicely appointed, from the kitchen supplies to the wifi to the beach gear. There is nothing like being right on the beach. Everything is just a short walk away. We rented kayaks for the week and almost everybody went out to kayak with the many dolphins that swim by every day. The location between Bethany and Rehoboth means you are a short drive away from nightlife, restaurants, and other attractions. The top deck is a great place to gather at night and watch the stars.
Thanks John for mentioning those dolphins. They aren't always around so am glad you got to see them; once in awhile we've even seen them while boating on the bay. We appreciate your using "Ocean Spirit" as a meeting ground for getting the whole family together. Enjoy the rest of your summer and thanks again for some useful tips.
