The perfect getaway from city life, Bethany Beach Delaware is a wonderful family beach community located between Rehoboth Beach, Delaware and Ocean City, Maryland. Bethany Beach was listed as one of the Best Secret Beaches on Earth by Travel and Leisure Magazine in March, 2012 and this is what they had to say about it… 'A boardwalk with a bandstand and a frozen custard shop, a landmark carved totem pole, and a sophisticated miniature golf course add up to an all-American destination—and one of T+L’s Favorite Family Beaches. Known as the Quiet Resorts, Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island offer seven miles of Atlantic Ocean for swimming as well as a sheltered bay for boating and fishing, minus the hubbub of nearby towns Rehoboth Beach, DE, and Ocean City, MD'.

Quaint BB beach house

  • 4 of 5

What's not to love:

- Short walk to the beach (less than one block).

- Only a few blocks to downtown Bethany shops and restaurants.

- Nicely appointed kitchen and updated appliances.

- Plenty of space for entertaining friends.

Great Location, Very Responsive and Helpful Owner

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect sized house for our party of 7. The location is great at just one block from the beach, and the owner was incredibly responsive and helpful during the booking process and during our stay.

Great location near the beach and town.

  • 4 of 5

The house easily accommodated six adults and one infant, with room to spare. The living space allows for room to be away from or with the group. The location was close to the beach and town and the neighbors during our stay were quiet and respectful.

Great rental property

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property and were very happy with it. We are a family of 4 with two young children.

First, the location. 5 minutes and you're at the OCEAN. Not the beach. THE OCEAN. With small kids, that is a godsend. 10 minutes north and you're at downtown Bethany. As with any beach town, you do not want to contend with parking at pretty much any time and let me say it was nice not having to drive. Not so nice walking back with a full stomach, but that's what the trolley is for - which will literally drop you in front of the house or pick you up.

Bethany itself is an oasis from the Jersey Shore. You get pretty much everything you expect out of the shore experience (shops, lots of restaurants, arcade, multiple Candy Kitchens, etc) but man, a noticeable drop in the amount of people. It's by no means slow but good luck finding this level of activity anywhere else. As a plus, you have Rehoboth (shopping), Dewey (drinking) and Ocean City (everything) to your north and south.

Now, the house. It's a nice sized, well equipped house. Outside, there is a nice deck with a grill and, and this is a huge, huge plus, an enclosed beach shower. Sure, most houses at the beach have one but being private is a huge boon, again with having kids. The shed on the back also has a ton of beach chairs, beach toys, an umbrella and boards to use. That was good because we definitely couldn't have fit them in the car!

Inside, the décor is total beach mode/Florida mode. When I'm at the beach, I want to feel like it and this house delivered. The kitchen looks recently renovated with new appliances which was also nice. This house is definitely well equipped too. We brought down some things, not knowing what to expect and ALL of that stuff was redundant. That's cool. The TV remote needed the batteries changed and the bathroom nightlight needed a new bulb and replacements were already there. The bedrooms were nice too, no problems with them. The only knock on the house, which isn't really even a negative, would be the bedrooms/bathrooms will probably be due for a mild renovation in a few years.

The owner had great communication and almost psychic powers. She definitely takes good care of the house and it shows.

All in all, I almost don't want to recommend this house, lest someone books the week we want next year! But it's impossible not to. The reviews are legit - this is a great house to rent for a summer vacation.

Great vacation in a great house.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this house. Loved the location. Only a few blocks from the town, and a few houses from the beach. It was a nice quiet street.The sun room was great to play games at night and have breakfast in the morning. The master suite was perfect for my son and his family. The house was very clean, and had a new kitchen. Diane was very easy to reach and helped us with all of our questions. I would love to stay here again if given the chance.

A beautiful beach week!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at Bethany Beach! We found the house to be very clean and comfortable and so convenient to everything our family enjoys. The beach in that area was not overly crowded and we were able to walk easily to/from the beach with little grandchildren and all of our beach supplies. There were even pretty new beach chairs that we were able to use so we didn't have to bring quite so many from home and additional beach toys for the kids. The owner, Diane, was wonderful, patient, and accommodating as she gave us all the information we needed, answered any of my many questions, and made her home welcoming with notes, calendar of events, linens, and even parking passes, if we had needed them. Couldn't have asked for a nicer week! We hope to be returning next year!
