About The Owner

We lived in the Bethany area for nearly eleven years, our children were born here, and we still vacation here. My wife and I grew up coming here too, as our families came to the Delaware and Maryland seashores in the summer when we were children.

Bethany Beach has that small town feel, where you wave to your neighbor as you pass them on the road. It's free of all the huge crowds and bustle of some of the other local beach towns. We really enjoy Bethany and all the area has to offer. In the summer we go the beach as often as possible, and in the evenings we like going into town to the boardwalk. We play on the beach, listen to whoever is at the bandstand, and go get ice cream. The off-season is even more peaceful, and some of the best beach days can be in September and October.

We think Bethany Beach is the best, and hope you will think so too.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2004

Why The Owner chose Ocean View

We love Bethany Beach and this home allows us to enjoy it and share it with our family, friends, and guests.

Bethany Beach is so close to many metro areas - only 2 hours from Philly, 3 from Baltimore and Washington, and about 4-5 from New Jersey/New York. It is a really nice little beach town, and is aptly named 'the Quiet Resort.' It has a modest main street and boardwalk, with lots of shops and restaurants, and even a miniature golf course.

The surrounding area also has so much to offer. A short drive north up the coastal highway will take you to the surfers and fishermen by the Indian River inlet. Continuing north is the beautiful Delaware Seashore State Park and the always hopping Dewey Beach with plenty of night life. A couple miles farther is outlet shopping and fine dining in Rehoboth, along with Jungle Jim's Water Park for the kids. Also in Rehoboth is Kid's Cottage, with drop-in babysitting on the weekends if mom and dad need that night out alone. A little farther north still is historic Lewes and the majestic Cape Henlopen State Park

To the south is another wonderful Delaware state park, Fenwick Island State Park. A little farther south is Ocean City, Maryland, with its famous boardwalk, restaurants for every taste and budget, tons of miniature golf, Jolly Roger Amusement and Water Park, and even ice skating at the Carousel Hotel. In both directions are movie theaters, boating, fishing, kayaking, windsurfing, kite boarding, para-sailing, hiking, and biking.

What makes this townhome unique

The Village at Bear Trap Dunes is truly one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the area, featuring tree lined streets with sidewalks, and traditional architecture. It's one of the those All-American neighborhoods you might have grown up in, only it's at the beach. The community's top notch amenities include indoor and outdoor pools, a fitness center, Har-Tru tennis courts, and a seasonal beach shuttle.

In addition to being a great spot for your visit to the beach, our home is ideal for a golf outing, or for the tennis enthusiast. Bear Trap Dunes is a 27 hole, world-class golf course and you are just steps from the golf clubhouse. Within a 1/2 hour drive there are more than a dozen other great courses. And in addition to the community tennis courts, one of the country's top rated tennis resorts - at Sea Colony - is only 2 miles away.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the house and its location. I just wish we would have stayed longer. The house is exactly as it is described and plenty of room for us. We had 10 people and all slept comfortably in beds. I will definitely rent again if we plan another trip to Bethany Beach.

Great townhome! Bethany is perfect and owner was awesome to work with.

  • 5 of 5

We went to Bethany to celebrate my daughter's sweet 16. We took 7 of her friends (10 people total). The townhouse was spacious, nicely decorated and clean. We loved having the beach shuttle to get us to and from the beach. I had many questions along the way and Michael was easy to work with. I would rent again!

Gracious space, clean and super convenient to Bethany Beach

  • 5 of 5

It was wonderful experiencing Bethany in the off season. Our stay was made 'just right' by the excellent accommodations. Michael was super responsive to any questions we had. The place was perfect for the mother/daughter/BFF get away celebrating 2 16th birthdays. The property was beautiful and full of fun things to do. We were a short drive to the beach that couldn't have been more easy.

I would highly recommend this property for a group of 8! Thanks for helping us make a special memory!

Excellent rental !! Highly recommended !!

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 families that used this rental property during the labor day weekend.

The general consensus in our group has been that this was perhaps one of the best properties we have rented in the last 4-5 years that we vacationed in.

Michael and Stephanie were extremely courteous and professional to deal with for the required formalities.

We all got a sense that they must still really love their unit even though they do not occupy it because it shows in every little detail that they left for us and the positive vibes this house exuded. It made our work easy during renting and checking out and we felt happy to leave with extremely pleasant memories there.

We always love when we come across such wonderful owners. Mike and Stephanie, we will definitely be recommending your place to all our friends !!

Best Regards,

Raj & family

A pleasant stay in Bear Trap Dunes!

  • 4 of 5

This townhouse was very clean and convenient to al the amenities Bear Trap has to offer. The beds were comfortable and having the linens and towels included was an added surprise. Parking was never a problem and the game room down stairs was perfect for adults and kids alike.

We will definitely be returning to this beautiful townhouse next summer.
