About Marcia Plotkin
We love North Bethany Beach, a true quiet resort area. Executive living at its finest in a gated community with easy access to a rich variety of activities in the immediate area. This includes a private swimming pool, tennis/basketball court, nearby sparkling ocean beach, the slow culture of Southern Delaware and racy Ocean City, MD. Did I mention birding, and discount shopping - plus no sales tax? While we love living just outside Philadelphia, PA, its such a treat to come here. Our 7 grandchildren love it too. We've flunked retirement twice, attained degrees from Drexel University and generally appreciate every minute of life we can.
Marcia Plotkin purchased this House in 1999
Why Marcia Plotkin chose Bethany Beach
North Bethany is a high value up-and-coming area which is almost fully developed yet outside the city limits. We wanted a place where we could be on the bay to observe nature at its best (we've even seen seals) but within minutes walking distance of the beach and also I could walk to get a cup of coffee to a small restaurant is nearby. We get all three in Waters Edge plus a gorgeous home with relaxing water all around. You are welcome to come and share it with us.
What makes this House unique
Situated on a one acre private peninsula, surrounded by tidal water on 3 sides. Throughout the day you observe shore birds and other wildlife go about their business in their natural habitat. The beach sunsets are varied and simply spectacular, made even better on the deck with a Sundowner drink in hand. Privacy galore.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
One-of-a-kind Experience for all ages...
the home is delightfully situated on a cul-de-sac and surrounded by water on 3-sides. Every window has a magical water view! And the long views, especially around sunset, deserve a glass of wine. At nite you can actually see the Milky Way. Well furnished, this upside-down house has the kitchen and dining areas facing the West, upstairs, next to an expansive deck, and water all around. Simply delicious.
The near-by access to the well-kept pool, and short walk to a pristeen ocean beach are very comfortable. The owners have thought of everything including several beach buggies, high chair, pack-n-play, etc. Thanks for making our family dreams come true at Waters Edge.
Thanks so much for stating everything we feel about Waters Edge but stating it so much better. We really appreciate your comments. Its hard to get any work done in our offices when the views are so spectacular. Hope you are able to return again one day. - Marcia and Steve
Spent a wonderful week at this lovely house! Plenty of room for three generations to enjoy! We definitely hope to return!
Thanks Grammy K. We have many intergenerational guests enjoy the all-important Summer get togethers at our home away from home. Hope the grandkids enjoyed themselves too.

Water's Edge was the perfect relaxing stay for our adult extended family. Plenty of privacy and space for 4 couples to congregate and also enjoy quiet time.
Thanks for thinking of us during this cold spell. Nice to remember the warm days of end of summer. Glad you enjoyed yourselves and we look forward to your return. - Marcia and Steve
The perfect beach house
This house provided just what we wanted -- fabulous views, quiet, peaceful, with everything we needed nearby (the beach, grocery store, gym to work out) and a community pool within the development. The house has everything you need, especially in the kitchen. Windows and views that won't quit, what a great way to spend a week. It was our first time at Bethany after many years going to the Outer Banks and we will definitely come back!
We are so glad you enjoyed the area. It's daunting to vacation somewhere else with hopes of finding all the "vacation wants" one requires. Again, we appreciate your pertinent questions and hope we satisfied them. Please feel free to drop a line and as they say in the South, "Come on down..."
Memories Made in This Great Home
The home is well kept. The views are absolutely breathtaking. The gated community gives you a sense of security. It's all very quiet and peaceful. The beach is only a short drive away. There are several flights of stairs to get around the house so I wouldn't recommend for people with mobility issues. For our family it did not pose a problem but I thought I should include into the review. We had a great time.
Hi: Tranquility set right in as soon as I read your lovely review. We know what you mean. Listening to bay waves, sandpipers or ospreys can really make you forget any troubles. Thanks for thinking of us and having such a great time at Waters Edge. - Marcia
Great Home for a family!
It was our first time at Bethany Beach and we had an amazing time. We have three young children ages 6,5, and 2 and this was a wonderful house for them in an ideal location. The sunsets are amazing and the bedroom layout was perfect for the little ones. The kitchen and deck is large enough to accommodate a large family. We were at the beach every morning by 10am and back home for lunch and naps and at the pool in the afternoon. The community pool is excellent. The location is great to restaurants and food shopping and a short drive to the Bethany Beach boardwalk. Try Matt's and Blue coast grill for great seafood but make sure you go before 6pm if you have young children or you will have to wait at least 30mins or more. The owners are very helpful with any questions you may have and reachable via email or phone with a great response time. I would highly recommend this house for large families with young children. Thanks again for an amazing week.
Thanks so much for your positive review especially about our wonderful sunsets. The 2 restaurants you mentioned have been around for awhile and are only 2 of the many types of fantastic eateries we have in Bethany. We recommend restaurants wherever asked and use reviews like yours to make further recommendations. Enjoy the rest of your summer. - Marcia and Steve
