About the property

SFHome, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11) washer+dryer+ 3 remodeled bathrooms

Your family will enjoy your stay at our beautiful contemporary home in South Bethany, Delaware. The reverse floor plan will allow you to view the ocean from the Deck and master bedroom. We designed the house with lots of windows and deck space so you can enjoy the sun coming up in the morning over the ocean and the sun setting in the west over the bay. It‘s just a few steps to the beach so no need to worry about carrying everything at once for your day at the beach. Come back and grab lunch or use the bathroom and you will be back on the beach in less than a minute. The upstairs great room with the cedar cathedral ceiling expands the entire width of the house and connects to the kitchen with a nice bar/eating area.

Our family loves to play games on the game table, watch TV and movies or read in the sun room, all within eyesight of each other so no one misses out on the fun. At dinner the big dining table can seat at least 10 people so lots of family fun at dinner time.

South Bethany Beach is one of the most family friendly beaches you will ever have the pleasure of vacationing at. Life guards during the busy months will keep you safe but there is nothing wrong with having a cocktail on the beach while you enjoy the day. There is usually a game of volleyball nearby or you can fish all day at the state beach just 100 yards south of the house. You also have plenty of off road parking on both sides of the house so invite the rest of the family to come and visit.

Downtown Bethany Beach is just one mile north with its family boardwalk, great shopping and lots of fantastic restaurants. Ocean City, Maryland is a few miles south and Rehobeth Beach Delaware is just 13 miles north. Ocean City is known for its monster Boardwalk and hundreds of great restaurants and Rehobeth is known for its fabulous night life and shopping at the outlet malls.

Try Google Earth at 5 Indian Street South Bethany Delaware 19930 to see how close to the beach you will actually be in our home. Call or email us any time to inquire about our newly remodeled home. We look forward to hearing from you and having you come again and again.

About Kevin McGrath

We have built many houses in Bethany and decided to keep this gem. We love it in South Bethany. This is my wife and my oldest daughter at her high school graduation here in Fairfax VA. We use the house in the Fall because the water is still warm and the crowds are small. Call or email any time for more details.

Kevin McGrath purchased this house in 1996

Why Kevin McGrath chose South Bethany

I have been in love with Bethany since 1980 when I was just out of college. The most family friendly beach on the East Coast. Bethany Surf Shop is where we shopped for over 30 years because my brother happens to be the owner of the store.

What makes this house unique

Great neighborhood and lots of beach toys at the house for the kids. The reverse floor plan will help you enjoy the sound of the waves and the sunset to the west off of the reading room we just refurnished with brand new wicker chairs and tables as well as new Amish deck furniture. The best deal on the east coast across the street is McCabes Gourmet deli. It's an award winning restaurant. Best coffee on earth.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were so happy to be back for another beach week. We spent lots of time in Fenwick and Bethany and had a great trip to Funland. See you next year. Your house is perfect for our family. Thankful and grateful, Amy

We found the perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting this house for the past 4-5 years and will continue to rent as long as they will have us! The location is great and the layout works great for our extended family! We go to the beach every year for a family reunion and this house works out just perfectly for us! It's close to the beach (which is not super crowded by the way) and also close to Fenwick and Bethany Boardwalk. The place is cozy and beachy and the owners have always been very responsive with any questions we have had in the past! They also continue to do upgrades to the house each year. We just love it! There is also ample parking which is helpful for visitors. I would highly recommend renting this place.

5 Indian St

  • 5 of 5

Our family has rented this home for 2 years and thoroughly enjoy this place and the neighborhood. The owners put forth a lot of effort in keeping this home in great shape and are extremely responsive. There's plenty of room for our 3 brothers' families to hang together with nice furniture and artwork to enjoy. We have been coming to South Bethany for almost 20 years. The lifeguards on this beach have been fantastic in finding a lost nephew and also helping our son after a bad spill on his board. Combining this with a wonderful oceanblock home creates the setting for a relaxing vacation. It's so hard to leave on the last day!!

5 Indian Street

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming back to 5 Indian Street for more than a decade. There is just no way you will not enjoy this house. It is in a perfect location, has a great layout (with fantastic great room 3 stories up), always clean, and features constant updates. The owners make every accommodation for their guests. In fact, you feel that you are not in a rental property, but borrowing the owners' house!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words and thanks for rescuing the set of keys our friends left there the week before. They were thrilled to be able to get them back so quickly. See you next year, Kevin

Fabulous Cottage

  • 5 of 5

In 2013, 2014 and 2015 we rented the McGrath cottage at 5 Indian

Street in South Bethany, DE. We have also reserved it for our vacation

in 2016.

It is spacious, clean and nicely furnished, perfect for our family of

four generations. Equally important is the gracious communication,

care and consideration extend by the owner.

We highly recommend it for a caring family.

Very peaceful and retlaxing. Short walk to the beach. Very happy with our stay. We would stay there again as the house has all the comforts of home. The house is maintained by the owner. We would recommend it highly to everyone.
