This spacious waterfront home has everything you need for the perfect family vacation. Water views from almost every room provide a tranquil setting, while the private boat ramp, three docks, kayaks, shaded hammock and outdoor games mean you'll never be bored. The uncrowded, wide beach of Fenwick Island State Park is a short walk (about three blocks). The town of Bethany Beach is a bike-ride away.
Need a little break from the sun? No problem! This house is equipped with wireless internet, cable TV with premium movie channels, a game closet packed with board games, cards, puzzles and more, even a mini-foosball table. Two large living areas mean the kids and parents can all watch what they want on their own large TVs.
There is plenty of parking for 5 or more cars. See below for additional details on the property, handicap accessibility and accommodations.
Accommodation Details: The lower/ground level features a master bedroom (King size bed, or two twins; a foam connector is provided) with full bath attached, a living room with bay view, family room (with pull out sofa bed), spacious screened-in porch, fully-stocked kitchen with counter seating for four, dining room with seating for 8 to 10 (we squeeze 12 around the dining room table, additional dining chairs are in the closet), an adjacent breakfast nook with additional seating, and a powder room. A washer and dryer in the garage make it easy to toss in sandy bathing suits and towels.
The second level offers four more bedrooms configured as follows: King, King, 2 twins, 2 sets of bunks (4 singles), a sun deck, two more full baths and a second laundry room.
Beach chairs, six bikes, sand toys, boogie boards, ladder golf game and additional beach 'accoutrements' are stored in the garage and ready for your enjoyment. The outside shower has been viewed by some as 'the best room in the house.
The Property: This unique home is located on a property the size of four lots, situated at the end of a quiet dead end street. Surrounded on one side by Davis Cove and on another by Little Assawoman Bay, the house offers pristine water views from every living area and almost every bedroom. Located directly across the bay from a state wildlife refuge, it's a great spot for birders, wildlife fans and boaters alike. You never have to leave the house to have a dream vacation.
The restaurants and shops of Bethany Beach, including Sedona, DiFebo's, Grotto Pizza are just up the road.
Handicap and Wheelchair Accessible: Our family has several seniors, and we wanted them to be able to use the house comfortably. A ramp to the back door makes this property wheelchair accessible. The lower level master bedroom is perfect for grandparents or others who don't like the stairs. The bathroom attached to the downstairs bedroom has a walk-in shower with safety bars. A shower chair is available upon request. The main living space is on the ground floor, so those using the downstairs, accessible bedroom will enjoy all the bay and cove views, and be able to enjoy all the activity that a family vacation has to offer.

Great property and excellent location
Had a fantastic time with family here. The location, house and views are great. Thank you for sharing your home.
Lovely beach house--beautiful views!
Wonderful spot for a relaxing weekend! Nicely furnished, beautifully decorated, clean and spacious. Close to Bethany Beach shops and restaurants. Owner is great to work with and responsive. Second time renting--would love to come back!
Thank you, Susan! It is the highest compliment when our guests choose to return for another stay. We are so glad your family enjoyed your weekend!
Fun House for Families with Beautiful Views
This home is a perfect place to get-away and spend quality time with your family. The living areas are comfortable and have gorgeous views in almost any direction you look. The bedrooms were comfortable and the master bedroom upstairs had a large balcony attached. We could even do some bird watching from our rooms! The weather was cold when we visited, but we still had a lot of fun relaxing, playing games, and just spending time together. We were able to get outside a little bit to enjoy the ample yard and it's a short walk to the beach. The kitchen is stocked almost like your own home with anything you could possibly need, which we appreciated because we ate in most days. Lisa was really pleasant and helpful. We were thankful for the information book that she provided too. We were all sad to leave, but will hopefully be back again!
Owner as Amazing as Her Residence
Brought our family together for my wife's 60th Birthday at this beautiful home. From almost every window, there were beautiful sights and wild life. The home was spacious and well maintained. Access to the beach was a simple walk across the road and very close to restaurants and bars. The one thing that gave this home a rating of "6" was working with the owner. It was like using a friends home. Thank you so much for making my wife's birthday weekend with our 5 kids and significant others such a success!
John, It was a pleasure to help you surprise your wife for her birthday! I loved being "in" on the secret. Other husbands take note - Stella's Cove is a great place for surprise celebrations. ;) I'm so happy you and your entire family enjoyed our location. We'd love to see you again. Lisa
We spent Christmas at Stella’s Cove. This home is clean, spacious and beautifully furnished. There are water views from every room and the sunrises are breathtaking. The location is also very private and quiet, just perfect for our little 4-legged children to go for a walk. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need to prepare meals, even a Christmas dinner! Lisa is a very thoughtful and responsive owner; it is a pleasure to know her.
We look forward to returning to Stella’s Cove next year.
Cheryl, thank you for making Christmas in Bethany part of your family tradition. I'm glad it has measured up to your stays in Cape May. See you in December! Lisa
Love Love This Home
The minute my brothers, sisters and I walked into the home, we knew immediately we were going to love it here. Upon opening the front door, we immediately saw nothing but water views through the glass doors and windows.The home is absolutely beautiful. Decorated so nicely and very clean. There is adequate space throughout the whole house. The grounds are awesome too. Nothing but water views everywhere. Very peaceful and relaxing. Lisa (the owner) was also very nice and responds right away to any questions you have. I highly recommend this home, and can't wait for my "sibling" weekend again next at Stella's Cove. Thanks for a wonderful memory!!
Hi Lori, I'm a bit late in responding to your wonderful review, but thank you so much for sharing your experience at Stella's Cove. I'm so glad you and all of your siblings enjoyed the space and the views. Lisa
