Located on the north end of Bethany Beach with a private guarded beach and is one of the most desirable location in our area. There are no streets to cross when going to the beach and is only 6 houses from the ocean. Excellent for families. The Beach Plum Antique Shop, that has even been referenced in Coastal Living Magazine, is a short walk and is next to the famous Bethany Bike Shop. The boardwalk is only blocks away and all the shops downtown. Very tastefully furnished by Jerri Cole, who had been associated with The Shop of the 4 Sisters in Millville, Delaware.
Offered year-round. Weekly rentals only between Memorial Day to Labor day. Off-season weekly, monthly, and long weekends.
This was the second time that my family stayed in this rental and the place had definitely taken a turn for the worse. The lower level bedrooms had a strong mildew odor likely due to the fact that the exhaust fan in one of the bathrooms did not work. Large holes in the screen door on the sliders prevented us from getting fresh to reduce the mildew odor. The dishwasher barely worked due to a broken soap dispenser, and the toaster needed repair as well. Our early complaint that half the slip covers on the living room furniture were missing fell on deaf ears despite the fact that we had been promised they would were being washed and would be promptly replaced. Last, the place was not well cleaned even though we were charged a substantial cleaning charge
We stayed for a week this June with our children. Contrary to the pictures shown, the property is entirely white - white walls, white rugs, white couch and chairs in the living room, white drapes and white bedspreads. We avoided the living room for fear of getting it dirty. The grill was too rusty to put food directly on and the sliding doors to the back yard have locks that don't work; the owners use removable boards in the tracks instead. When I called to book the property, I was surprised to learn the owner was charging 25% more than what was listed for the week. He said it was because Hurricane Sandy meant more people coming to DE and fewer to NJ so he was going to raise his rates. I sent in the money with a security deposit that was "refundable." On our way home the owner's wife called my cell and yelled over the phone about a dent in the kitchen wall. I told her it was there when we arrived (which it was) and she blamed my children, saying the prior renters were an elderly couple. She also complained about a spot on a rug from play clay, which I had discovered just as we were leaving and did my best to clean, as we had to be out by 10am. I told her I would search for a solution online and send an email with cleaning options. Later that day I emailed her husband with 3 cleaning suggestions, all using typical inexpensive household products. I asked for a return of the security deposit, minus the cost to clean the spot, with a receipt. This is consistent with HomeAway policies. I also told him I contacted the manufacturer of the play clay to find more information on cleaning the spot. The owner complained they were too busy to spend time on this. He kept half the security deposit and provided no receipt. The owner did not work with me on this and treated me like a nuisance.
Stayed here for week of July 4th. Plenty of space for family of 7. Very clean and well stocked kitchen.Private beach that is very close ! Close enough to board walk but far enough away to not be surrounded by crowds. Will stay here again!
