About Brenda

We're a family from the Allentown, PA area that has been going to the Bethany Beach area for over 25 years.

Brenda purchased this cottage in 1991

Why Brenda chose Bethany Beach

Our family started vacationing in this area in the early 1990's and found the area to be very quiet and family oriented, yet close to nightlife and other exciting activities.

What makes this cottage unique

The property is located in a very nice, shaded, wooded area yet only two blocks (500 meters) from a private beach. When you look left at the Sea Colony umbrellas and right at South Bethany, you'll understand what makes this private beach experience unique.

Great house.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the beach for the week. The house had everything we needed, indoor and outdoor spaces to relax and be with family. Mostly we cooked at home, road bikes or walked to the beach, just spent a fun week at the beach. Loved 4 bathrooms, everything was clean and comfy. We plan to return next year.

A Vacation to Remember

  • 5 of 5

We had one of the best family vacations ever at this charming, well-equipped, comfortable and beautifully laid out home in an ideal location. The private beach was wonderful and only a short walk away, made easier by the provided beach cart. The layout of the home provided lots of space to gather, chat, play games and celebrate 2 birthdays. The beds were comfy and the beach theme throughout the house fit right in with our "Under the Sea" themed parties. Loved the privacy, the trees and the decks. The kitchen was well-equipped with all of the pots, pans and dishes we needed. The Dollar General and Farmer's Market at the end of the street were certainly an added plus, providing just about everything we needed. The decks and porches (with fans) were a favorite place to sit with our family and "catch up", as we all live a distance from each other. The owners were so pleasant and accommodating and quick to reply to any questions or concerns. We will certainly return when next we come to Bethany Beach. Thank you Brenda and Greg!

So peaceful but close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this beach house! The new addition is lovely, and the older part is really quaint and well laid out and decorated! We especially liked the two separate bedrooms off of the porch, the kids loved them too, still close but sort of apart from the adults. It was very peaceful sitting on the screened in porch, one morning we even saw a Mama deer and her two fawns right outside the porch! it was also lovely to have so many different areas to hang out in. The house was well stocked with the basics and we loved the fact that we didn't need to bring beach chairs or a wagon, or a beach umbrella, or boogie boards! And the location was perfect, close enough that we could walk to the private beach but far enough so that it was very quiet. Didn't really realize how nice it was to have access to a private beach till we got there, not so many people which was awesome!
