About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9 plus couch)

Our home is a classic beach house just a short walk(3 blocks, 6-7 minutes) to the beach and boardwalk and across the street from the trolley stop. It is located on Oakwood Street; a wide, open and private street; our lot is large, open parking (5+vehicles/grass is OK). Guests enjoy the cozy front porch and huge backyard deck. They tell us it feels like a home away from home.

We bought the home from the ex-mayor of Bethany who designed and built the home in the 1980's. We re-decorated and purchased all new furnishings 5 years ago.

Our house is ideal for family summer beach vacations and non-summer get-away.

Our home is right near the beach and town but still has a private, uncrowded atmosphere that makes for a wonderfully relaxing vacation.

Great time

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean, well laid out and close to the beach. We were there with my son, his wife and my two grandchildren and there were lots of books and games. The kitchen was large and well equipped. There were also lots of beach chairs, boards and a bicycle which we used. In all it was very close to the shops in Bethany, to restaurants and to the beach so we had a very good time.

Great family vacation

Overall the house is in great shape and well maintained. Convenient location, easy walk to the beach and boardwalk. Quick drive to food store. Nice family atmosphere to the town. All my kids had a blast.

A good family vacation choice

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week with our family. The house is very spacious, and an easy walk to a beautiful beach. We enjoyed the biking and beach (especially the 4th of July fireworks).

Everything we needed was right there, and in good condition. I especially appreciated the lack of "personal clutter" in the house. It felt more like our own home during our stay.

Good value for the money

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this rental. It was a good value for the price. We had nine adults staying in the house and would have had trouble fitting any more people. It was a short walk to the beach and close enough to downtown Bethany, the trolley and local stores to make them accessible. We enjoyed many dinners on the large shaded deck in the back.
