About the property

Townhome, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

An Oceanfront vacation can't get any better than this!! You are literally right on the beach - with spectacular views of the ocean and the Indian River State Park & Nature Preserve. At night let the ocean lull you to sleep and in the morning sip your java from one of the house’s four ocean decks while watching the dolphins play.

The owners pride themselves on providing their guests with a well-equipped kitchen, modern furnishings, newly renovated bathrooms, seating for 10 (both in the dining & family rooms) and ample beach chairs. We provide EVERYTHING you need to make your vacation UNFORGETTABLE!

On the ground level there is parking for 2 cars in the carport, an outside shower, a grill, and a laundry room with bike storage. Our community tennis courts, playground and covered pavilion for BBQs and picnics are located right in front of the house.

The first floor offers a deck (bayside) with table/chairs and loungers. The first floor has a large dining room, 1/2 bath, kitchen and family room (fully equipped with books, games, puzzles, DVD's and queen sleep sofa). Dine-in on the screened-in oceanfront porch or enjoy a crab feast on the large picnic table on the ocean deck. Relax in the Adirondack chairs in our own backyard - which is literally part of the beach!

The second floor offers a large oceanfront bedroom with 2 twin beds, a full-size crib and a screened-in porch with table, chairs and loveseat. Across the hall, you will find another large room which can be separated by an accordion wall divider - the left bedroom has a set of bunk beds and the right bedroom has 2 twin beds (which can be made into a king bed). A new, renovated bathroom is on the second floor.

On the upper level, the master bedroom suite offers total privacy in a spacious room with a beautiful vaulted ceiling equipped with wood beams, skylights, comfortable reading chairs and an oceanfront deck with chairs, loungers and tables. The view from the master bedroom oceanfront deck can't be beat!

For directions: Go to Mapquest, enter Ocean Rd. & Dune Rd, Bethany Beach, DE. We are in the Atlantic Watergate subdivision within Tower Shores (14 mi. N of Ocean City, MD & 7 mi. S of Dewey Beach & Rehoboth Beach, DE)

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a marvelous time at this beach house! While we've stayed in Atlantic Watergate before, this is by far the nicest unit. The kitchen, family room and thrid floor were great. The kids loved the bunkbeds. We loved eating on the screened porch. Best of all was being right on the water. We rarely had on shoes the entire week. Now that's relaxation! Hopefully, we'll be back next year.

Steps from the Beach.... literally......

  • 5 of 5

I was lucky to have found this gem of a home for a last minute getaway in September!

The owners were A-1 to deal with from the start, and the call to "touch base" after arrival was greatly appreciated!

The positives of the property are endless- but here's a few key highlights!

1. Location- just South of Indian River Inlet and not quite in Bethany proper equals fewer crowds and quiet! The property is literally 25-35 steps from the beach (depending on your stride) and that's measuring from the door at the porch! No hauling coolers down to your spot for a day at the beach- it's easy access to the home to pop in to use the restroom, or grab a snack!

2. Space- wonderful indoor & outdoor spaces! 3 levels of ocean front decks and 1 level of bay side. Bedrooms are spacious as well! Well appointed and great layout!

I highly recommend this property! We can't wait to visit with our children next summer!

Can't imagine a more beautiful stay in Bethany

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this townhouse every summer for 10 years. Our family just loves it. The owners are wonderful to work with--so responsive and they attend to every detail. The beach house is lovely. The neighbors are fantastic. Right on the beach and close to the State Seashore--we walked with the kids every night. Across the street are tennis courts and a playground. This is just the perfect beach house.

Awesome Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with another family (4 adults and 5 kids under the age of 10). The house was very clean, the kitchen was well stocked, and there was plenty of room for everyone! Beach-wise you cannot beat it. Being able to walk off the back deck onto the private beach was perfect (everyone on the beach was family friendly and we didn't have to fight the crowds like Ocean City). The owner called after the first couple of days to make sure we had everything we needed- that was very comforting! We highly recommend this rental to anyone with kids or just want a relaxing get a way right on the beach!

A wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week here! Two couples with children ranging in age from 2-9 and we were quite comfortable. Very well maintained and fully functional kitchen made our stay an easy one. Things we loved most-back deck, ocean views, screened in porches, beach as a backyard, ammenities like beach toys/chairs, games...Wouldn't hesitate for a second to stay here again!!

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a stunning home! Our family enjoyed every minute in this perfect beachside gettaway. Our two young children enjoyed walking out the back door and right onto the beach which is only steps away from the spacious back patio. The master suite was huge, private and had gorgeous views of the beach and ocean. The house exceeded all of our expectations and we can't wait to go back!

Can't imagine staying anywhere else

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth year staying at this beautiful home away from home. The owners are incredibly lovely to work with, and their home is meticulously cared for and cozy. Our children adore their week at the house with the beach as a front yard and a playground in the back yard. There's nothing as relaxing as sitting on one of the many decks in the early morning or evening hours, watching dolphins swim by and the waves roll in. We hope to stay here for many more years to come.
