About Debbie Bosse

Hello! We are Ted and Debbie from Ellicott City, Maryland. We LOVE the beach, and we also are classic car owners. We have three adult children who also live in Maryland and visit us at the beach as much as possible. Debbie is a retired Realtor, and Ted is a Financial Planner. We hope to retire to our home in Bethany Beach. Until then, we hope you enjoy are home as much as we do!

Debbie Bosse purchased this house in 2005

Why Debbie Bosse chose Ocean View

We have always loved the ocean and the quiet resort of Bethany Beach. We chose this location because of easy access to Route 1 (Coastal Highway) without having to travel congested roads to get to the beach. The drive to the sand/boardwalk is only 5 minutes via a back road. The tranquility of our SCREENED PORCH on the lake is our most popular feature. There is a ; seafood carryout and restaurants adjacent to our gated community. Bethany Lakes is 15 minutes to Rehoboth Beach and Ocean City.

What makes this house unique

The benefits of our location include non-congested drives to the Bethany Beach boardwalk, Fenwick Island, Ocean City, and Rehoboth Beach. The designer outlet stores are a 15 minute drive from Bethany. Our guests LOVE our screened porch with a table for crabs and sofa for an afternoon nap. There is a view of the lake and fountains from every window in the back of the house, including the loft with pool table. We have badminton/volleyball and croquet games for our lawn. Lots of yard space for kids to run and play. The lake is stocked with bass on a catch and release basis so bring your fishing rods! , There is a basketball hoop. Our community is gated, providing safety for guests and their families; across the street from a grocery store . There are three master suites with adjoining baths in our home.

Beautiful Home!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for our sons first birthday. We had a blast!! The home was clean and very spacious. The owner's were very helpful when I had questions. The location was PERFECT! 15 minutes (or less) to Bethany Beach & Ocean City. It's so much to do. My only regret is I wish we'd gone during a warmer month to fully enjoy the beaches. We did tons of shopping though. I'd definitely recommend this place and we would stay again.

This was the most spacious and exquisitely furnished home that our family has ever rented for our vacation. The location is superb with access to carryouts, groceries, liquor store within 5 minutes. Being in a gated community gave us peace of mind as our children were riding bicylces and walking to the pool area. The screened porch, was our favorite for evening relax time. The owners were great to deal with, and we will definitely be making this our "summer vacation home" for years to come!

Exquisite Home for Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have stayed in this wonderful, spacious home in the Bethany Lakes community. The furnishings are beautiful and comfortable, and we enjoyed all of the porches; a wrap-around porch, screened porch and balcony. There were many areas to retreat to for privacy, yet open and spacious for large gatherings. The location was prime with access to everything we needed without any traffic, and only 5 minutes to the Bethany boardwalk area. The kitchen was well stocked, and the screened porch on the lake with fountains was heavenly, even on a rainy day. We will be back again next year! Included were boogie boards and beach chairs and towels, reducing the need to buy them. Thank you for the use of your beautiful home!

Fall weekend

  • 5 of 5

This is the 4th year we've stayed at this house in the fall and it could not have been better. As always the house is beautiful and in great shape. There is plenty of room for our group to spread out and we even had an 80 degree day on Friday to sit out on the screened in porch and play card games.

We're already picking dates for next year and I would recommend an off season visit if you want a getaway to the beach without all the crowds. Thanks for sharing the house!
