About the property

Townhome with 5 decks, 3 Bedrooms and loft, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Water, water everywhere!! This unique bayfront property is located where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Bay at the Indian River Inlet. This is a beautiful and most relaxing vacation spot. South Shore Marina is in North Bethany Beach about 3 miles North of the Bethany Beach Boardwalk and about 8 miles South of the Rehobeth Beach Boardwalk. You will be close to summer vacation activities but away from the crowds for relaxing. Enjoy magnificent sunsets from one of three decks 35 feet from the bay with direct 180 degree views. Each day you can relax and watch the many, many boating and fishing activities as you relax on your deck. You can walk less than one block from your door to the community swimming pool or take your tennis racket and play a few sets on the court located just next to the pool. If you are a boater there are marina slips for rental with direct ocean access. You can also charter boat cruises from the marina at your doorstep. The nearby North Shore Marina has facilities to launch your boat to cruise the bay or ocean. South Shore community is an easy walk to the guarded beach at Indian River Inlet. This is a great location situated so you can enjoy both bay and ocean!

South Shore Marina has a fabulous kitchen completely equipped with all your cooking and dining needs. The table and bar area provide plenty of comfortable seating. A wireless internet connection is provided and a desk in the kitchen allows for efficient vacation planning. The family room is large with ample comfortable seating. There is a flat screen TV with extensive cable offerings. Each bedroom has its own full bath and private balcony. The loft above the family room also has a private bath and there are two trundle beds in this loft area. There is a half bath off the family room. The townhome has a one car garage with an indoor shower which is great for washing off the sand!! This is a vacation spot surrounded by pristine wetlands for the whole family to enjoy...we think you will just love South Shore Marina #41 which we call the 'Puzzle House' of all the puzzle pictures we have decorating this vacation home!

About Ann or Dave

Dave and Ann live in Glen Arm Maryland. We love coming to our vacation home on weekends all year long. This is a wonderful place to relax and leave all worries somewhere else. We love the water and all the natural beauty of the Delaware Shore and our inlet view!

Ann or Dave purchased this townhome in 2003

Why Ann or Dave chose Bethany Beach

We bought this home because we can have family and friends together and still enjoy private bedroom space. We also like the great view for sunsets...WOW!

What makes this townhome unique

Quiet vacation times close to all the excitement of boardwalk, shopping, dining and water fun. But this location also offers a quiet and comfortable home to relax and enjoy the beautiful views and opportunities of the Delaware Seashore.

Guestbook comments from the manager

A wonderful family vacation and we will definitely return next the sunsets, furnishing and all the framed puzzles. Swimming pool was a great plus- such a short walk!

Wonderful location, wonderful views, wonderful sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

We've been visiting Bethany since 1998 and this was one of our best trips ever! The location is absolutely perfect. We did a lot of our usual activities; beach, boardwalk, shopping etc. but one of the best parts was returning to the house, sitting out on the deck and just enjoying the beautiful views! I highly recommend staying at 'The Puzzle House'.

Have vacationed here for two years. Always love the location. Levels of steps a little much. A sacrifice for location.

Great time

  • 4 of 5

It was a great house and fabulous views. Close to beach ,entertainment and restaurants. Love the new beach bar

But... do not bring more than 3 cars. We ran into a cunundrm finding room for our extra vehicles since we had family from 4 states It ruined the whole day trying to find places to park extra vehicles.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely recommend this vacation house to our friends and family. The layout of the rental is very unique due to the levels- each bedroom had it's own privacy, however anyone of 70 yrs or older would find it difficult climbing the stairs to the living room and/or kitchen. The views from each of the balconies were amazing especially the sunsets. If you want seclusion away from the busyness of beach traffic this is the place to stay. Very close to the beach. The owner provided great customer service

Greatly enjoyed the spacious rooms and the sunsets. All was in very good order and clean. I was able to fish in the inlet only 50 feet from the property and ocean surf fishing was less than a half mile away. I plan to return next year. I definitely recommend this to any interested renters.
