About Cathy Keil
We have enjoyed this house as a weekend getaway, then as a vacation home and our kids grew up waterskiing here. Now the grandkids are enjoying it, too. We remodeled and upgraded the house in 2009 and and rebuilt the dock in 2013. It now has all the comforts we need.
Cathy Keil purchased this House in 1994
Why Cathy Keil chose Bethel Island
Less than 2 hours from the Bay Area, it was close enough to come for a weekend and far enough away to really relax and forget about work. The neighbors are friendly if you want to walk around and chat or they will leave you alone if you don't want to go out and meet them.
What makes this House unique
It is a quiet, relaxing place to forget about the stress of work or the rest of your problems. Close to small towns if you want to run in to a movie or a big grocery store and we have small bars, restaurants, and boating facilities close by if you need them. You can walk along the levee and see the unique houses and boats. Overall, it is just a fun place to relax and enjoy.

Delta BI house
This is our 3rd stay at the BI house and we have once again had a great time! House is perfect for us and working with Cathy and Ron along with caretakers Lisa and Bob is extremely easy with both being very helpful. We will be back!!!
We had such a good time. This place was clean and comfortable. We have stayed in hotels mostly when we visit family, this was such a great change. We had our kids and grandkids over for bbqs and really relaxed. Thanks for the great vacation.
Nice property on Bethel Island, great boat dock and caretakers.
This is the third or fourth time we have stayed here and we have enjoyed all of our stays. It did get hot 2 days, with no wind, and the property doesn't have air conditioning. Otherwise a fun place and it normally has cool evening Delta breezes and has ceiling fans.
It's always a pleasure when you come visiting. Thank you for the 5 Star review. Thank Heaven for the water in the Delta. Helps cool things down a bit. The house is well insulated and should be 5-10 degrees cooler than the outside. We look forward to your next visit.
Nice house and property on the water - excellent value.
Pictures do not do the property justice. Very nice home for a couple, two couples, or a family. The very large kitchen is set up well for those who like to cook. It is open to the living room so you can still interact with others. Two decks, one off the house and the other by the dock, lots of room to entertain for a bbq. The dock is great if you own or rent a boat or like to fish. At 5 mph, you are in open water in about 10 minutes. Swimming is no problem, there is a large buffer outside of the channel. The location is very close to a couple of marinas and restaurants. Caretakers in the houseboat are friendly and helpful, but not intrusive. The dock has plenty of room for another boat or two. The property is a very good value and we would definitely stay again. May was a great time to visit. The weather was nice but the island was not overrun by summer boaters and campers. Lastly, the owners respond very quickly to messages.
Thank you for this most detailed review. We appreciate this as I know our future guests will as well. You folks are welcome back anytime.
Took my employees on a quick weekend fishing trip. Place was great, very comfortable. Just wish we’d have caught something!!
I'm pleased to know that you found our place to your liking. While there are no guarantees toward catching fish, many have in the past. I think you should come back a try your luck again. You and your employees are welcome anytime we have availability.
What a perfect place to vacation!
We had a wonderful time here in Bethel Island! The house is clean, cozy, and very comfortable! Bob and Lisa, the people who live on the houseboat, were extremely sweet and welcoming! We boated and fished for three days straight and had the best time doing it! Having the awesome deck and grill tipped it off! The kitchen had everything we needed and it was so nice to be able to cook our meals. We boated down to The Rusty Porthole a few times for great food and nice people to talk to. We will definitely return, this place is GREAT!
