About Albie Dickson

We loved spending time at our home in South Bethany with our three boys, friends and family every chance we get. However, 5 busy schedules prevent us from being there as often as we would like. We decided rent it so others can have their own wonderful experiences in a place we treasure.

Albie Dickson purchased this house in 2010

Why Albie Dickson chose South Bethany Harbor

We rented a house in South Bethany on a canal one summer and loved all of the different things we discovered to do. The beach is beautiful and very close by. However, the canal offers so much more! Kayaking, crabbing, boating to nearby restaurants, fishing, and a unique community. Bethany is a family oriented beach area with Rehobeth and Ocean City a short drive away.

What makes this house unique

Our beach access offers a wide beach with very attentive lifeguards. We have discovered many delicious restaurants in the area great for adults and families. There are several accessible by boat on the bay as well. We have also taken our Whaler all the way down to Assateague Island and spent the day on a secluded beach with the boys. Funland in Rehobeth is a great outing with kids. The outlets in Rehobeth provide an activity for a rainy day. The house itself has been our primary source of entertainment - it has so much to offer!


Enjoy family friendly commuity of Bethany, short drive to both Ocean City and Rehobeth, Delaware Seashore National Park close by, great rainy day shopping at the Outlets in Rehobeth.

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

Excellent location for a family reunion with plenty of room to spread out. The house easily sleeps 18 and could include a couple more if you have teenagers that don't mind sleeping on the 2 large couches. All the amenities where excellent. The kitchen is well equipped and we made good use of the 2 washers & dryers. We had one problem with the WiFi not working but it was fixed in 48 hours. The universal remotes to the main TVs were a bit confusing but we figured it out (everyone was interested in the London Olympics during the evenings). We could never get the cable TV to work in the sun room but there was so much to do anyway. The fridge in the pool room didn't cool well at first because it was frozen but we got it thawed and de-iced and all was well. Although the use of the 2 kayaks were not included, it would have been nice since the house is located on a canal front and it would have been fun to explore the canals by water. The outside shower worked great (there was never a loss for hot water) as did the grill. The heated pool was a hit and perfect for the little ones. Location was great as it seemed halfway between Ocean City and Rehoboth. We will definitely visit again.

Luxurious Canal Front Home!

  • 5 of 5

Six friends visited this fantastic home for a mom's getaway shopping weekend and were pleasantly surprised by this wonderful, comfortable, unique home on the canal. We were so happy there that we spent more time in the Adirondack chairs watching the water than we did shopping (which was kind of what we planned to do). We cracked crabs on the back porch by the pool and made pomegranate martinis for happy hour in the well stocked kitchen. There is more than enough room to spread out and the beds are more comfortable than mine at home. I almost don't want to write this review because I don't want to have to fight for time here next year.

Reunion for 16 people

  • 5 of 5

As I mentioned in my email to the owner, we were very pleased with the house. It accommodated our family very well, was "well-stocked" with kitchen utensils, pots & pans, dishes, glasses, etc. Loved the pool and pool table; decor was beautiful and interesting, everthing clean, glad we had the linen service. Yes, we were very pleased and would consider renting again in the future. We went to the beach every day and also to Rheboth one evening as well as downtown Bethany for ice cream. Beautiful area. Only drawback I found was that the grocery stores were not close by--a little drive and traffic (but not a problem).
