The wooded wetlands provide a vibrant background for the outdoor part of the house. The home has a screened porch and deck on the 'wetland' side of the house. There you will find a table for outdoor dining, and lounge furniture surrounded by tall pines and wonderful sounds. This home is 'pet friendly' and there is a small fenced area for your furry friend to wander on his/her own. We do ask people who bring their dogs to also bring covers for the furniture and beds incase the dogs like to sit on it.

The community has a swimming pool and tennis courts. Public beaches are available at the Delaware Seashore Park and the Fenwick Island State Park. Public beaches are also available in Bethany Beach and South Bethany. However, parking meters are in effect from May 15-September 15, with a maximum time of 2 hours.

About Kathryn Beck

We are full time residents of the Bethany Beach area and this property is one our two rental units. We are both in Real Estate, and enjoy the communities here. We have the unit as a 'pet friendly' house because we used to have a curly coated retriever named Dewey. We have a cat named Itty Bitty. We have moved into a brand new home on the other side of Muddy Neck Rd, called the Beach Club. So we are very close to the Rental House in case you need something. The house we moved out of is our other rental!

Kathryn Beck purchased this house in 2003

Why Kathryn Beck chose Clearwater

Our Clearwater Cottage on Anna Maria Drive is just outside the limits of Bethany Beach, but close enough to get there in 10 minutes. Clearwater is a two part development, and our cottage is in the back part. There are woods and wetlands behinds us. We think its a quiet community with a lot of friendly pet owners. Also, there is a community pool and tennis court available to you. We have a great screened in eating area on the back, and an open deck to catch some sun rays.

What makes this house unique

Many people won't rent out their places to people with dogs or cats. However, we believe that most pet owners have been responsible, and have treated the cottage well. You can't take dogs on the beach except if you go to one of the Fishing Beaches. You will need to purchase a fishing license in order to do this, and you can drive on and fish.

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I rented this property in October 2017. We had two dogs with us. The property was clean. We enjoyed our stay very much and so did the dogs! The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. The neighborhood was quiet during our stay being that we stayed in the off-season. The TV in the living room had a Google Chromecast which works if you have have a Chromecast at home because you can cast apps like Netflix onto the TV. The wi-fi was easy to log into and there were never any connectivity issues.

Kathryn was easy to communicate with. I would stay here again.

This is our second year. We really enjoy the location of the home, outside of the busy Bethany downtown. Home is upkept and clean. Owners are a pleasure to deal with very pleased to have found this location that allows us to bring our fur baby with us.

Very nice. I'd go back again.

Very nice place. I'd come back. I would suggest adding an ironing board and a blow dryer. My only complaint was that the toilets were not cleaned prior to our arrival.

Perfect Little Dog Friendly Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from a long mother day weekend getaway at this home. We stayed with our almost 2 year old and labrador. I was in direct contact with the owners from the time I inquired on the dates, to even during our stay. Kathy answered all my questions and was very pleasant to work with! We've stayed at many different pet friendly homes over the years, and this was by far the most clean. There is a also a small fenced in yard that is perfect. The owners do a great job of both offering pet accommodations and keeping a great home. Unfortunately most pet friendly homes slack on the cleaning. This house is small, but it was perfect for us. The living room was very comfortable and the kitchen / dining room is a good size and open. The screened in porch is very relaxing, as well as the bench on the front porch! We had a rainy day and enjoyed just sitting outside under cover. It's a 5 minute drive to the shops and boardwalk at Bethany. Even closer to beach access. We stayed offseason, so parking was never a problem. The pool wasn't open yet, but we did take a look at it and it looks very nice! We would absolutely stay here again, and I recommend to anyone with a small family looking for a nice pet friendly beach getaway.
