About Daphne Galiano

We are Washington, D.C. residents, and have been coming to South Bethany for 30 years. South Bethany and the Bethany Beach area is widely viewed as one of the most family friendly resorts on the Delmarva Peninsula. In coming to the beach, we most enjoy doing not a whole lot and having the day to do so. The beach on North 2nd Street is beautiful, and generally not too crowded. N 2nd St has a direct access walkway to the beach and you can stake your spot in the sand in the morning and leave it all day! Enjoy a lunch break at one of the 3 decks mid-day. Rinse off at the outdoor enclosed shower area and hang up your beach towel in the clothes line in the back.

Daphne Galiano purchased this house in 1998

Why Daphne Galiano chose South Bethany

We built this house with the help of my Greek father-in-law. Of all the resorts in the Delmarva, we find South Bethany the most compelling, and the most family friendly. And, we are drawn to North 2nd Street, in particular, in light of the other residents on the street, and the beach in this particular area of South Bethany being less congested.Young kids can walk back to the house without crossing the highway.They love the hung swing in the lower deck!

What makes this house unique

Property lays out quite well in an open space for family gatherings in the upper floor, is in excellent condition, and those that have stayed at the property are uniformly complimentary of our home and of South Bethany. We rent only 8-10 weeks per year, take excellent care of the home, and use the home ourselves a fair bit during the off season.

Great house for large families

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended. We come every year and very much enjoy the house. It's clean with great deck area outside and large dining area inside. Very easy access to the beach and the recent adds of WIFI and a new TV were wonderful. Owners are easy to work with and we plan to keep coming back.

Comfortable place to stay

  • 4 of 5

My family which includes my daughter, son-in-law, son, daughter-in-law and 4 grandchildren enjoyed staying here. We liked the open living area and the sleeping quarters were great. The distance from the beach was great and we could easily go back and forth from the beach to the house. I would recommend this house as a comfortable place to stay if you have multiple families.
