Charming Beach House

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 had a wonderful week in this charming beach house on the canal. The house has an open floor plan that was very accommodating and comfortable. We brought one bike with us and rented a trike which made traveling to the beach very convenient. Mary Ann was awesome to work with and made sure our stay was enjoyable.

Beautiful, well maintained vacation home with all the luxuries of home

  • 4 of 5

Our family loved staying at this home. There was plenty of space for all 8 of us yet reasonably priced. This home had everything we needed. Enjoyed the screened-in porch and upper deck with views of the canal. Easy access to the beach and many local attractions and accommodations. Would highly recommend!

Fantastic rental in a fantastic little area!!

  • 5 of 5

6 of us stayed in this house for 5 days - myself, my husband, my in laws, and my 2 sons (ages 6 & 8). It was the perfect rental property for us. We were a few blocks away from the beach, and when we drove, the owner also provided us parking passes so it was super easy to park and go! The house itself is very spacious - lots of areas to spread out and get some peace and quiet. The screened in porch and the up top deck overlooking the canal were peaceful and relaxing! The kitchen had pretty much everything we needed to make ourselves comfortable and the washer / dryer were very convenient.

What was great is that South Bethany is away from the craziness - there are restaurants, but you aren't in the crowd of Rehobeth, Bethany, or OCMD - but, if you want to be, you can be in the matter of minutes. The neighborhood is so quiet and relaxing. We went for walks around the subdivision and it was really nice. I can't wait to rent this property again!!

Adorable and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this home on the canal in South Bethany Beach. As a party of 7 the house had plenty of room and was very comfortable for all. The house is a very short drive to the beach (parking permits provided). We also rode our bikes and even walked to the beach (15 minute walk). If you are looking for a beach house in a quiet, serene neighborhood this is one to consider.

The nicest place we've ever stayed! Was able to have our boat and be in walking distance to beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The Canal Beach House is set in a wonderful community with nice views and neighbors all around! The owner went above and beyond the norm to make sure we were happy. She is delightful! The home itself looks brand new, like something out of a magazine. Everything is perfectly comfortable and spacious. Every part of the home, each deck, sun room, screened in porch, living room and deck were cool places to be. The upper deck in the morning after a nice run was the perfect place to enjoy a breeze.

Be warned that there is a shortcut to the Giant and CVS out the back side of this community that is shut down from 10:00 to 1:00 every day. It comes complete with a police officer who will ticket you, even if you live in the community. Soooooo, in other words, don't buy ice cream thinking you will get it home quickly. You must wait in the 40 minute long traffic route even if you can see your house from there.
