About Mindy

Joe and I have 3 adult children and are members of the Bethany Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce.

I retired from the Department of Homeland Security (TSA) at Washington Dulles International Airport after ten years of service.

Joe works for Fairfax County Public Schools and during the summer you will find him driving the trolley around Bethany.

Mindy purchased this house in 2001

Why Mindy chose Bethany Beach

Joe and I vacationed in Bethany for 4 years with our 3 children before we had this home custom built.

We realized an oceanfront home was out of our reach so decided to have a home built as close as possible.

We have discovered it is the best of both worlds to be a part of the town. Walks and trolley rides to the town and beach are delightful.

What makes this house unique

Walk to church.

See lots of wildlife in town which is unusual. Our sitings have included mallard ducks, rabbits, deer, and even a box turtle.

Return trip to same rental 8 years later. Just as lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Close enough to the beach. Highly recommend week of labor day. Except for the holiday itself, not as crowded.

Relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time this weekend staying in this bright, peaceful home. Although it is a bit far to walk to the beach with our little children, there was a parking pass provided which made the beach very accessible. Thank you for a much needed getaway!

A Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived home from South Haven and I cannot express what a lovely home this is. The house is not only beautifully decorated,and clean, it is equipped with anything and everything you may need. Add to that wonderful owners and how could you not enjoy your vaction. This truly felt like our home away from home.

The walk to the beach was short enough that we chose to do that instead of riding the trolley, but with the stop only a few feet from the house, it was always an option. Also, the the quiet, tree-filled neighborhood was close enough to the excitement of the beach and downtown, while providing a quiet place to enjoy family and friends. I understand why this home books up for the season. Hopefully we will be able to return again next year.

South Haven - Stunning Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from out visit. 'South Haven' is an easy walk to the boardwalk at Bethany. The home is nestled in a peaceful, tree-filled area. (the trolley is steps from the front door) The home has everything you could possibly need and the master bed was comfy. Loved the screened in deck as well as the other decks. Mindy makes the rental smooth and easy and provides a travel check list and a check out list (ahem) and places to visit. We are planning out next trip and have found our 'Haven' away from home.

The home is beautifully decorated and roomier than the pictures portrayed.
