About the Property

Townhouse, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Room, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This upscale Oceanfront townhouse, (29135 Ocean Rd Unit 17, Bethany Beach, DE 19930-3650, for mapquest and gps directions), is located in Tower Shores, known as #17 Ocean Road, Atlantic Watergate, Tower Shores, Bethany Beach, Delaware, just two and a half miles north of intersection of Route 26 and Route 1, Bethany Beach on Route 1. (For directions,go to Mapquest, enter Ocean Road and Cove Road, Bethany Beach, DE. It is right on the Atlantic Ocean. You can see the ocean from all three levels. It has a fenced in 'sand' yard, which is part of the beach.

The unit was built between 1965 and 1967. The interior wooden walls are pickled, giving a warm, authentic feeling to the house, as though Papa Hemmingway was going to walk in from the beach. Rental is from Sunday at 2:00 p.m. through Sunday at 10:00 a.m., when beach traffic is considerably lighter.

The townhouse is next to the Delaware State Seashore which is a State Park and Nature Preserve where you can fish from the shore or from the rocks in the Indian River Inlet. The townhouse is seven miles south of Rehoboth and Dewey, and 14 miles north of Ocean City, Maryland. There are tennis courts and, of course, wide, open beaches. Biking is easy since it is so level and there are bike lanes.

Guests enter from the bayside, above the car port. There is parking for two cars, (only), under the house. There is also an outside shower. On the first floor is a bathroom, washer and dryer, filled book shelves, dining table and six chairs, a complete galley kitchen, counter and stools. The living room has the flat screen LCD TV, DVD, two love seats, a rocker, and a full-size sofa, all with new matching cushions. The room opens onto a screened in porch, with a ceiling fan, recessed lighting, with table and chairs, to the outside deck, all of which overlooks the Atlantic Ocean, which is less than 150 feet of sand away to the ocean waves and surf.

The second floor ocean side room has a screened in porch, hammock, chairs, immediately off of an ocean side bedroom with two twin beds, a crib, (sheets aren't provided for the crib), book shelves, cable flat screen LCD TV, and DVD player. There is a complete bathroom between the two bedrooms. The bayside bedroom has two twin beds and a room divider, and a bunk bed, which can separate the room into two separate bedrooms, closets, end tables, and dressers.

The third floor has an open deck, recliner, and chairs, off of the master bedroom with a vaulted, open beam ceiling, paddle fan, skylight, fine chairs, end tables, dresser, love seat, end table, and a king-size bed, DVD, and an LCD flat screen TV. There is an internal window to let in the setting sun from the skylight in the stairwell, or blinds for privacy. A complete bathroom, with a shower, sky light, leading to your private third floor deck overlooking the ocean. Enjoy your morning coffee overlooking the ocean.

No matter what the weather, you can always enjoy the ocean from all three floors. Even with the air conditioning and all of these amenities, it still feels like a beach house. The only way to be closer to the water is to be in it. We invite you to be our guest at our beach house. Please contact us to reserve your beach vacation. Off season rentals are also available. No pets of any sort are permitted. Additionally, smoking should be outside, only, and please throw the cigarette butts away. Absolutely no cigars.

With a direct inquiry I will be sure to respond. Don't forget to let me know your desired dates, contact information, telephone number, and number of adults and children. The unit only accommodates 6 adults and 2 in a bunk bed, which we assume to be kids since adults won't want to sleep in a bunk bed. Above 8 is too crowded and not enjoyable for anyone. Above 6 adults is too crowded.
