About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (3 kings, 1 full, 4 singles) w/ beach butler

Min-y-Mor, which means 'Edge of the Sea' in Welsh, is located in the Town of Bethany Beach, 1.5 blocks from the beach and 4 blocks to the town's local shops.

With six bedrooms (including four master suites), five full baths and privacy for all family members, Min-y-Mor is perfect for a large family or two-family vacation.

The house is elevated. The main (2nd) floor includes a family room with a TV and seating for nine, a dining area and a kitchen. The sun room, with skylights, is located just off the dining/living area; it has sofa seating for five plus an eating/game table which seats four. Ten foot high glass doors between the family room/dining area and sun room may be left open, or closed to provide a quiet refuge. The sun room also has a TV/DVD, where Dad can enjoy sports events or a book, or children can enjoy cartoons while adults watch TV or videos in the living room. Two additional TVs are located in the ground-level master suite bedroom and sitting room.

Up the spiral stairway to the third floor is a reading nook (off the bedroom area) with three wicker chairs, which overlook the family room below. A video and paperback book library near the reading nook has something to hold the interest of adults and children alike. Children also enjoy the reading nook as their personal site to observe activities in the living room below.

The ground level master suite with king bed is the epitome of privacy, with a separate sittting room, a bath and your choice of private entrance or entrance from the main floor.

The main floor has the following bedrooms: master suite, with queen bed and private bath; twin beds in one room and a full bed in the other room, served by a full hall bath. The large third floor suite has a king-sized bed and two single beds (trundled) with private bath.

Baths are 'senior friendly' with grab bars and raised toilets in master bathrooms.

About Kathleen Wobber

Min-y-Mor has been oufitted as a family beach house so that when vacationing in Bethany Beach, your family will be as comfortable as our family is when we are together. The house was enlarged and modernized in 2005 to make room for our 7 grandchildren. We have been vacationing in Bethany Beach for more than 30 years. Our daughter, Kathleen, assists us with the rentals!

Kathleen Wobber purchased this house in 1984

Why Kathleen Wobber chose Bethany Beach

We chose to purchase a home in Bethany Beach because it was a small family-friendly town where we felt safe letting our teenagers roam. Although the years have passed, Bethany has retained the same small-town aura. In the early 1900s Bethany Beach was a religious camp and many of the family values are still reflected today (no smoking or drinking on the beach, no wild dance clubs in town, etc.). The Town of Bethany has restricted parking for non-residents (staying at Min-y-Mor, you are a town resident), which makes the beaches less crowded than other beach areas. We love the fact that we can walk to town as a family, have an ice cream, bring the kids to the playground and then enjoy the music at the town bandstand. With the busier and more crowded resorts of Ocean City (10 miles south) and Rehoboth (10 miles north) the action is still close. We expanded and updated the house seven years ago.

What makes this house unique

With three separate decks, all members of the family can find the perfect place to relax. On the main level is an outdoor deck with seating for four or more. A second larger deck, tucked behind the house and among the shade trees, provides a private refuge, with a grill, 2 tables and a lounge chairs. On the rear second level is a small, hidden sun deck with lounge chair, allowing Mom to escape with a good book, enjoy a quiet tanning session or nap in peace.

Amenities at Min-y-Mor abound. Enjoy the luxury of wandering to the beach with only a towel in your hand: four beach chairs and an umbrella will be set up for you on the beach and removed for you at the end of the day. Six more chairs and an additional umbrella are available at the house, as well as two adult bikes, two children's bikes, a tyke-bike, a baby pool for the beach or deck, a boogie board, and a variety of sand toys. A box of children's toys, a child booter seat, and a bed rail for a twin bed (suitable for a youngster recently out of the crib), are also provided for the comfort of your family.

The property was well maintained and we enjoyed it enough to book it again for next year!

  • 5 of 5

There was enough room for all of our large family. very close to the beach and all activites. We really enjoyed our stay.

The only negative would be that they should check on the cleaning crew, bathrooms were not as clean as they could have been

Great Bethany Location

  • 5 of 5

The house is excellent, but the location is great. I only had to use my car to go pick up crabs. I biked to the beach( the bike rack sometimes got very crowded) and either biked or walked to downtown Bethany. I was even able to bike to get donuts ( too bad the bakery in Bethany is closed). I really appreciated the complimentary beach chairs and umbrella - that made biking to the beach possible. I do wish that the check out times were clearer - they are different on the contract and the notice at the house.

Close to beach, comfortable, great service

  • 5 of 5

This is the second summer that our sons and we have stayed at Min-y-Mor and we love it. Close to the beach, Min-y-Mor also makes umbrella and chair service on the beach very easy (and that's a real plus!). Restaurants in Bethany and Rehoboth are also easily accessible, as are Fenwick Island State Park and the Assawoman Bay Wildlife Area. We went kayaking this year, and highly recommend that guests take one of the Coastal Kayaking tours. We did the sunset tour on Assawoman Bay, and it was splendid. For restaurants, we highly recommend Bluecoast Seafood Grill and Matt's Fish Camp. Also, on the way out of town, we stopped at Off the Hook (conveniently located on Rte 26 or Garfield Pkwy), and it was likewise splendid. These restaurants are all owned by the same people (I think), but they each have a unique character. In Rehoboth, we love Blue Moon, and since it was one of our son's birthday, we had a family celebration there. For that restaurant, you need reservations. The others don't take reservations but any wait you have can be pleasurable. At Bluecoast we enjoyed cocktails and oysters while we waited. There's a Harris Teeter within 10 min. of the house, so that's also lovely.

As far as the house goes, the description is accurate and you can congregate and also spend isolated time, which is good. The property was clean and well-maintained, and has a working grill.

And the owner promptly responds to inquiries. We found the move in and move out easy, the internet connection reliable.

Min-y-Mor is 1 1/2 blocks from the beach. Family members meander up to the beach when they are ready with only towel and book in hand - - the beach butler sets up 4 chairs and an umbrella at your command (included in the price, no extra fee for this service!). Oakwood Street is close to town but the beach is a block past the end of the boardwalk, providing a wider beach with easy access to boardwalk activities.
