Beautiful house, great location.

  • 3 of 5

The location of this house is outstanding. Minor updates are needed but nothing that would prevent us from enjoying our time there. However, on three separate occasions over the course of only four days strangers were in the house. First, the kids stumbled across a maintenance person winterizing the house. We had no idea he was coming and we lost access to a bathroom for the duration of our stay. Next, a realtor showed up with a couple to show the house. I allowed her in but had to rearrange my plans to accommodate. Finally, one of the owners showed up and began accusing us of staying in the house too long. He left on good terms but we certainly did not feel safe with our children in this home. Apparently the owners are at odds with each other and we got caught in the middle. For these reasons, I would not recommend renting. It's unfortunate because the house is beautiful.

Wonderful location, but poorly furnished.

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed South Bethany. The location and access to the beach couldn't have been better. The porches overlooking the water were ideal. However, I can't remember the last time I've stayed in such a poorly furnished or equipped rental. If you want a place close to the water, a good view, with plenty of beds, don't mind antiquainted furniture in disrepair this is the place for you. If you want to actually spend more time in the house, on the porch enjoying the view, or expect to cook meals at the house, you will be sorely disappointed. While it handled the sleeping arrangement fine for our three generations, the refrigerator was way too small to accommodate what we would have liked to put in there, and forget the small refrigerator on the second floor. I don't think that has worked for quite awhile. Also, be careful of the washer and dryer. They snagged some of our clothes.

All in all, we loved the location, but I would not stay at this place again unless some serious updating occurred. It's a high class facility, with very ordinary to poor appointments.

Room for our 3 generation family.

  • 4 of 5

Everything you need to cook is in the kitchen. Some beach items on the back porch. I wish the master on the top floor had an ocean view but the en suite made up for the lack of view.

Cleaning service should have washed the bath mats before we got there but everything else was clean. Hot tub was enjoyed by all. Plenty of good restaurants in the area. Our 4 1/2 hour drive turned into a 7 1/2 hour commute. Leave yourself plenty of time to arrive. No one was there to meet us but an e mail to the owner and all was taken care of. We had room for 5 vans to park in front of the house. Would rent again.

We loved the house, wonderful view

  • 4 of 5

The house was very nice/clean and the area was great. It is truly close to everything yet far enough away from the madness if you want to relax. The upper deck is the highest one in the immediate area and offers the best view of the beach w/o viewing the neighbors. We would absolutely rent this house again. We rented very early in the season and there were no life guards yet until Memorial Day Wkend, so there was nearly no one around during the week. There were issues we had, which were minor, yet annoying but we figured it was because we were there so early in the season that the owners just didn't get around to making some minor repairs: 1) the screen doors to the main porch were broken or off the track so the doors didn't close all the way, there's a 2 inch gap at the bottom - not really a big deal until the evening when hundreds of small flies get in through the opening and settle on the ceiling above the dining room light. 2) the master bedroom bathroom shower was hard to work and there was hard water build up on the shower heads, which looked terrible even after I scrubbed them. All in all we loved our stay and the little problems were no big deal.

Fantastic Weekend !!

  • 4 of 5

I really was pleased with this rental that my friends and I stayed at this weekend. Everything mentioned in the description was accurate and yes the property was well maintained, if I could I would do it all over again this weekend. I loved the hot tub, the surround sound (Super Bowl), kitchen, the 7 headed shower and most of all, I loved the beach. The house clean when we got there, spotless. If there was anything that need to be added to help better my stay I would say the bedroom televisions could be upgraded to flat screens other than that the hose was amazing and yes I definitely plan on coming back sometime in the near future.

Poorly Maintained by Reality Company

  • 2 of 5

The house was huge and had plenty of space for guest. The view and the beach were amazing. The overall appearance of the house seemed nice when we got there but slowly we found major matenence issues throuout our three night stay. The bathrooms didn't seem to have been cleaned thoroughly. There were two toilets in the house that needed repair. One leaked from the bottom every time we flushed it (very unsanitary) and the other didn't feel like it was secured to the floor (it shook during use). There were minor mold issues in the upstairs bathroom where the shower hadn't been properly cleaned. The main fireplace didn't work at all which was horrible since we booked during the winter months. The most disheartening thing and my biggest complaint was with the hot tub. It was not even close to ready when we got there. The straps holding it down were frozen on. This showed me no one had touched it in a while, especially right before we arrived like they claim. We had to pour hot water on them just to get them to break free from the tub. It took us a whole 24 hours to figure out how to get the hot tub up to 104 temp needed from the 48 temp it was at when we arrived. We were very apprehensive about the hot tub's cleanliness but decided to have faith in the integrity of the Reality company who stated that it is cleaned thoroughly after every guest. Boy were we wrong about that decision. We had three people, to include my wife, who broke out with bad rashes. Doctors told all of them it was from an unclean hot tub. We should've took the hint from the odd smell (which we attributed to sanitizing chemicals) and the lightly tinted water (again which we hoped were from chemicals). There were other minor issues as well throughout the whole house. Bottom line, we would never stay at this house again. I don't contribute the issues we experienced to the owner, who seemed like a great person and worked with us tremendously, but to the poor maintenanace by the reality company. The owner needs to check who they have taking care of their property and hire someone who isn't gonna lazily clean the place. Our experience could have been amazing if the reality company had really cared enough to prepare this house properly in advance. I feel like we didn't matter because we were "off season" guests. With all the bad, Bethany and Rehoboth were amazing places. We loved the Dogfish Head pub and other attractions this area had to offer.

Car: recommended

South Bethany is a really great place to spend your vacation.

Oceanside with sunning, swimming, surfing, and all good beach things - and Bayside with boating, fishing, crabbing, canoeing, and kayaking.

South Bethany is a quiet, family-oriented community but if you are looking for occasional action, it is located 10 miles from Ocean City Maryland - the largest vacation resort in the East Coast of the United States.

South Bethany's ocean beach is large and uncrowded. Everyone gets a “front row” seat to set up their chairs and umbrellas. Plenty of room to play ball, including volleyball. It is the only beach that permits alcoholic beverages. (But please – no glass containers! They’re prohibited.) There are 17 public access walkways to the beach. There are vendor services on the beach: chairs & umbrella rentals, Italian ice, hot dogs, snacks, etc. (But no noise or litter!). The Beach Patrol lifeguards are experienced and fully certified with CPR, EMT, and other certifications. You can walk to the beach from many of the rental houses in town, but if you drive there is ample parking. Our house is a BEACH FRONT property.

Ocean Drive, our address, is the “main drag” that runs parallel to the ocean beach - a great place for walking, jogging, rollerblading, biking, and pushing strollers and baby carriages.

On the Bayside, the canals offer really great boating. The canals lead to the Little Assawoman Bay for boating, crabbing, fishing, waterskiing, and windsurfing. The canals also lead to the Assawoman Wildlife Refuge and to the Assawoman Canal - great places for paddling or just quietly drifting along and watching deer, foxes, osprey, eagles, and lots of other wildlife. Kayaks and canoes and other small craft can easily be launched from any dock - bigger boats and jet skis can be launched at ramps nearby.

The community is proud of what we don’t have in South Bethany - No bars, no night life, no boardwalk, no amusement parks, no traffic congestion, no miniature golf. AND no parking problems, AND - no noise and commotion! But all the amusements are

just minutes away - and it’s nice to do those things if you want - then come back home to peace and quiet.

Our small shopping center has nice shops, restaurants, a gourmet market, pizza parlor, award-winning Japanese restaurant, and excellent bait and tackle shop with all the info and gear you need for bay or surf fishing.

Our beach adjoins an undeveloped State Park - fishing only - no concessions. Great place to just walk in and enjoy the beach and dunes in their pristine natural state.

South Bethany is the premier quiet family resort on the Delaware Coast. We often have three generations enjoying our Town - grandma/grandpa, mom/dad and the kids. So come join us - we’ll be enjoying the surf and bay during the day - and flying kites, surf fishing, or just hanging out on the beach or enjoying sunset over the bay in the evening! Like we said in the beginning - It s a great place!
