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 Delaware

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.

Beautiful Beach Home

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!

Charming beach cottage

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a lovely setting, surrounded by trees and close to the beach. The design of the house is very unique with windows and screens all around you. It provides a charming, relaxing atmosphere, although the furnishings could use some upgrades. The owners were very responsive, and I would definitely stay here again.

A Relaxing Stay in Delightful Surroundings

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely beach house, well maintained and tastefully decorated, with a charming porch, garden, and deck. The description is accurate and the photos were very helpful when we planned our stay. We appreciated the amenities; the owners seemed to anticipate our every need, and we felt at home. I would recommend this property without reservation. The kitchen is fully stocked, and we cooked and grilled during our stay; we also had a fabulous meal at Just Hooked in Fenwick.
