Guestbook comments from the owner

6 girlfriends from High School meet evey other year for a long weekend. Your house is the perfect reunion destination because of the location and the local attractions. We spent a day in Berlin, Maryland for "Tea-By-The-Sea" followed by wander around this precious town. Saturday was shopping at the Outlets. The most enjoyable time was spent relaxing and talking on the back porch. Thanks for sharing your lovely home with all of us.

Wonderful Get-Away Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you again! We had another relaxing weekend at your house. It is so nice to know that all the comforts of home are provided and we do not have to load up the bikes and beach chairs for us and our five children. There is plenty of room for all of us. My favorite room is the screen-porch! We love the quick get away for the weekend, but we can't wait for our week stay this summer! It is so nice to have the option with the kids of going to the beach and/or the community pool!

Another Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for furnishing us with a great house to spend family times together.

The house was spotless when we got there.

It have everything we needed.

They even had King size sheets for us to use.

Since this was the 3rd year for us to stay there I got king size sheets for the bed.

We didn't have to bring beach chair they we kind enough to let the renters use them.

We didn't use the bikes. But they were also for us to use if we wanted.

It was up at 5AM to go watch the sunrise.

So all in all we had a wonderful vacation.

Thank you so much from my family.

Just got here and debating whether we are going to stay are just go home. Sure it sleeps 8 but 8 cannot stay here comfortably. Furniture crammed everywhere. Can't open the front door and becoming down the stairs at the same time. Outdated. Weird layout. Washer is in the antiquated powder room with the rotten smell. We seriously looked to see if there was rotting food somewhere. Dryer is in the garage. I came here with my 5 children and I think by day 2 they are going to be miserable. Like I said sleeps 8, but not comfortably. Perfect for a bunch of people that just need a bed to sleep in but for a family it's impossible. Very sad. This is our family vacation and I may take my 2 youngest home and let my husband and older children stay so we can all be comfortable.

Owner's Response: On the VRBO web site, the house description and pictures show the layout of the house and sleeping arrangement for 8 people. Also shown is the extended back porch and yard for relaxation. This is our 1st negative review in the 12 years we've been renting. Sorry you had a negative experience. The odor is being addressed immediately.

Great Family Week at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

This house was just as described with all the convience that we needed. The house was clean and well-maintained and included everything to make our vacation memorable. Everyone had their own space to relax and there was plenty to do as a family. The owners were prompt in answering our questions as well as sent a area map and suggestions for enjoying our stay. Excellent home!

This home was extremely clean and well maintained. The entire community was kept in extremely excellent condition. The owners of this property had thought of everything a family on vacation would desire. The bicycles were great. The appliances were up to date. The community pool was well maintained and refreshing. I would recommend this property to any family with children as well as older people who could stay in the downstairs bedroom. A restaurant that I would recommend is "Off the Hook" on Route 26.

Beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from a two week vacation and had a great time! The house was perfect for our big family. It had all the amenities that were described to us in the listing. The house is a great location to the beach and to other places we would drive or take a nightly bike ride too. We loved the outside shower,grill and back deck. We are thankful too for the use of beach towels,bikes,and chairs. The house was just what we needed and I would highly recommend it to other families!

Our only complaint is the use of the pool. Although we loved having the pool there as a break from the beach,every time we went there,which was probably 6 times,we were made to feel very unwelcome. I would sign in each time and say hello and usually not greeted back. Often times I was asked for the beach tags to enter pool. When I explained the tag is on our beach house contract,often the person at sign in would ask me to go get it. It was very frustrating and put a slight damper on our awesome trip.

Owner's Response: We enjoy our vacation house, the Clearwater community and the Bethany Beach area too. A reminder to all renters using the Clearwater pool, you MUST have your contract with you to gain entry. The contract is your pool pass.
