Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at the Blue House the week of Sept. 19-27, 2009 and had a fabulous time. The House was awesome, weather was great and even though we had several families together, there was plenty of room for all. There are numerous decks to relax upon and from the upper one, you can see the ocean, quite beautiful. Bethany Beach was great as well, very family friendly area, beach and board walk are so close to the house, all I can say is location, location, location. House is well appointed, kitchen is fantastic, great room is open and master bathroom truly needs to be seen. Will stay again next time we vacation in BB.

Awesome for all ages!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week of June 13, 2009 in this beautiful home and hope we can return in the future.

The week was planned for my daughter and some of her friends who graduated from high school, so we needed a home that provided excitement for them as well as relaxation for us.

This home has it. My husband and I enjoyed the deck space so much, that we never actually made it to the sand.

The boardwalk is very nice and the shops have a "hometown" feel that everyone loved. But my favorite attribute had to be the the master suite! I love the shower and jacuzzi tub!

Even in a home with 5 female graduates and 3 boys, my husband and I actually had a very relaxing vacation!

Thank you John for sharing this fabulous home with us, and will definitely recommend your home to our friends.

My Stay at the Blue House

  • 5 of 5

I spent the first week of September in this beautiful house. Cannot wait till next year. Once I arrived, I never got back in my car. Walking distance to downtown. Steps to a beautiful beach. Great bike trails. The gourmet kitchen was amazing, as was the master suite and bathroom. I loved the three decks with their view of the ocean. Plenty of room for large families. The owner has thought of everything, to include plenty of beach chairs, bikes, and two outdoor showers. Truly fabulous.

We are headed back to this fabulous Bethany Beach property. The short walk to the beach is wonderful and the views from the house to the beach are spectacular. This house has all the amenities you want--including an amazing kitchen! The house is very close to town and you can easily walk there. The owner is friendly and helpful.
