About Peter Farkas

My name is Nicole and my father has owned this house since I was in 3rd grade. Now that I have my own family we cherish the beach experience. We love to swim and relax by watching the waves. Our goal is to keep the house updated, airy and well-maintained, while preserving the relaxed beach feeling.

Peter Farkas purchased this townhome in 1978

Why Peter Farkas chose Tower Shores

The location is amazing. It is quiet but with extremely easy access to downtown Bethany & downtown Rehoboth. We love to bike into Bethany on the Route 1 bike lanes. The house is a short drive from many restaurants, stores and outlets.

What makes this townhome unique

The best feature of this house is that you walk out the door of the living room and you are on the beach.

We like to take full advantage of the location by getting onto the beach early, and coming inside throughout the day. It makes it so much easier, especially with small children. We love to watch the ocean, especially from the 2nd and 3rd floor balconies, as it changes throughout the day and week. See some good waves? Run outside to catch them!

In the morning, you can see the sun rise over the ocean, and in the evening, the sunset over the bay. It's so relaxing to have a drink in the early evening sitting in the front yard, with the beautiful light. After dinner, we enjoy walking on the beach with our family and friends.

Great ocean front location--BUT---!

  • 1 of 5

The location is ideal, right on the beach, wonderful front porch. the master bedroom with balcony is the best room in the house. our disappointments were not with the location, rather with the accommodation. mold was visable in all the vents and around the bathtub, the kitchen utensils, bowls, mixing bowls were inadequate and we had to supply our own silverware as the supply was insufficient, several of the pots were teflon with the teflon scraped off and unusable, the microwave fell apart on my daughters head and wasn't replaced until the day before we left, the outdoor shower was unkempt, under counters in the bathrooms and kitchen had not been organized or cleaned in some time, and although listed as ok for 8-10 people with bedding for same, the place was too small for that number of people. the living room sat 5 people for example. overall, the space felt uncared for and a disappointment as the location is so perfect. given that this is not what we bargained for, we request a refund of at least 20%.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry this family had a negative experience. It's unfortunate when this happens, and we have had many other people who feel differently about the house. We replaced the microwave as soon as was possible (due to the appliance company's availability). We also informed the guests we would reimburse them for kitchenware they needed, and we will be sure to look at this when we do our fall cleanout. We will also work to clarify the listing to make sure people understand the spaces available. We take it very seriously when a guest reacts this way, but we do not believe this reflects all guests experiences equally, and it also does not excuse the mess and damage they left.

Great home on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week long stay at this property. It was well maintained and clean. Location can't be beat! Internet was hit or miss-we were able to stream movies, but simple web browsing took ages at times. I took it as a sign to get off the computer! This was our second stay in this neighborhood and we enjoy it very much.

Lovely beach house right on the water.

  • 5 of 5

We never thought we would find a place we liked as well as the place we vacationed previously for many years but we have now! It was a wonderful week. The beach house was perfect for us three adults, one 9 year old and 2 teenagers. The view from each floor is spectacular as well as the screened in porch that opens onto the beach . It was a wonderful family bonding time. Thank you Nicole and Ken.

Great, beachfront location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here with 4 young children and 4 adults. Awesome to be beachfront with the little ones as we were able to play on the beach basically 24-7! Also really amazing to have the playground right across the street, as well as Matt's Fish Camp a couple streets away (delicious and family-friendly). For new walkers/crawling babies, you have to watch them on the stairs as there is an open section without a railing (just the style of the staircase). Also, make sure to have beach towels ready to dry people off on the back porch since the outdoor shower is actually in the front of the house so we never used it. Makes more sense to use the hose in the back as you're coming off the beach and then have the towels ready!!! Overall, this was an amazing vacation that will go down in the books as a success!

We were very pleased with the accommodations, The balconies were great to sit out on & hear the ocean. walking out the back door onto the beach was great, We were there with our daughter, her husband & our six grandchildren. They all loved it, especially the kids.
