The property was better than the photographs.

  • 5 of 5

The property was better than the listing described. We enjoyed that it was centrally located and that we could easily visit many of the Delaware beaches and then return to a quiet setting that was not crowded by tourists.

We made day trips to various beaches (Bethany, Fenwick, Rehoboth, Ocean City, and Assateague Island) and enjoyed returning to Bethany Beach during the evening hours for the family entertainment (concerts - movie night) and to see the sun set.

Jaime was a charming and excellent host and we would definitely visit again and recommend his place to our friends.

Beautiful Country Setting and Close to the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We decided to take a vacation kind of last minute so we were worried that we wouldn't be able to find a nice place to stay. Fortunately for us this apartment was available!

The apartment was very clean and well-maintained. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed to cook or reheat simple meals. The bathroom was spacious with a large shower and good water pressure. Initially we were kind of worried since we read that the water was supplied by a well but we had no problems at all with showers, flushing the toilet, etc.

The property is in the country so it's a nice, serene setting but it's only a few miles from shopping centers, restaurants, and the beach. We were able to drive to Fenwick Island and Bethany Beach within 10-15 minutes.

One of the days we were there it rained quite a bit so we were unable to go to the beach. We could have gone outlet shopping or out to eat but it was nice to have cable and wireless internet available so that we could stay in and enjoy some down time.

Jaime was very welcoming and told us everything we needed to know upon our arrival. It took us a little bit longer than expected to get there but he was very patient and flexible with the check-in time. He also made check-out very quick and hassle-free.

Overall a great experience. We would definitely recommend this property to others!

A good time in Delaware

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the cottage in Frankford, Delaware on July 19, and were very happy to see that the accommodations were just like the photos on HomeAway. The property was clean and well-maintained. Jaime the owner greeted us on arrival, showed us around and made us feel welcomed. He was easily available to answer questions, and attend to our needs. He told us to help ourselves to the wonderful vegetables and herbs growing in the garden on the premises. I would definitely, recommend the property to a friend or relative. Mostly we enjoyed the state beaches and state parks of which Delaware has many.

Delightful Country Guesthouse !!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful little guesthouse on a beautiful property - perfect setting for a relaxing country and yet so close to beaches - Fenwick and Bethany.

The pictures describe it perfectly. It is well-maintained...all the amenities are included. Jaime - the owner was gracious and available - but not needed to be called upon...except for directions to the beaches...We would certainly recommend to all !

Absoutely beautiful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I came across this rental after searching and searching for something more personal than a hotel room.. This guesthouse is even better in person than described on this website. The property was clean and well-maintained, the yard was so pleasant and beautiful, and we fell in love with the inside as soon as we opened the door. Jaime was super, super friendly and very flexible with our arrival time. I would definitely rent again and recommend this guesthouse to anyone who was looking for a romantic getaway. :)

chic country stay

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I booked here for a vacation we had planned with some friends at Bethany Beach and ended up staying here most of the time!! The place is beautiful, completely private and it really felt like having our own little haven away from it all. There is a full kitchen, a grill and picnic area outside as well as a lounge if you want to veg out indoors. My favorite part was the design; the exposed beams and high cielings added a really roomy feel to the apartment. All in all, we really enjoyed ouro stay and will be booking our next vacation here!
