Great golf getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My foursome was looking for a place to base our Delaware golf vacation and this property was everything we were looking for. It was close to many great area courses and had plenty of restaurants and things to do in our off time. This property had lots of room, privacy, and was very well maintained. Our trip turned out great.and we would definitely rent here again.

Great ocean block house

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious house. The house is better than the pictures. We had 8 people and had room for more. The house had everything we needed. The beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach wagon were a great amenity. Large decks had seating for everyone. The screened porch was perfect for eating crabs while it rained. We enjoyed the private beach without the crowds. The owner was great to deal with during booking process. I would definitely book rental again.

Owner's Response: Lori, So glad you enjoyed your stay! The screen porch is my favorite place and love that you had crabs on my grandfather's old pine table! We have had many crab feasts in that spot and we are about to have a sit down dinner party for 20 on the porch to celebrate a big event! Come back again and enjoy! Cheers! Meredith

Great Vacation Stay

  • 5 of 5

House is a great location with private beach in a gated community. It had everything we needed. We had 8 people and still had plenty of room for a few more people. The screened porch was great for crabs, esp during the rain. The umbrellas and chairs for the beach,(with a beach wagon) were a nice amenity. The decks had plenty of seating for everyone. Trees surrounding house allowed for privacy. Dealing with owners was very easy. I definitely would book this rental again.

Incredible location, amazing house

  • 5 of 5

My wife, her sister, their cousins and their kids decided to have a reunion week in Delaware. We stayed at this house in Bethany Beach which was perfect in every way for the get together.

The private beach was clean and quiet and the waves were perfect during the day.

The house was clean, and was just the right size with the right amount of rooms and hang-out places for everyone to enjoy themselves and never get bored. It was stocked with all the necessities we needed (TP, towels, sheets, beach toys for the kids, beach umbrellas, board gamesetc) and all we had to do was make sure to replenish anything that we emptied. The kitchen was incredible and we made good use of it cooking dinners for the gang.

We're already talking about having another get together and, if it happens, we'll definitely be looking to stay at this house again.

Thank you for sharing this incredible house and all of the wonderful memories that we were able to create in it!!

About meredith mulholland

Our family built and has owned this property for over 30 years. We love to vacation here and have enjoyed many family re-unions at this very special house. The large private beach and ocean swimming are the best! The local restaurants are great, but the house is so comfortable and relaxing, we usually dine at home, grill out, or have a crab feast on the porch! Our kids love it here and now they are bringing their kids! It is our very favorite place!

meredith mulholland purchased this house in 1983

Why meredith mulholland chose Bethany Beach

Our father built this dream vacation home so we could enjoy many good times together. We continue to cherish our family memories here and love making more every year!

What makes this house unique

It’s location is perfect. A short walk to the private, uncrowded beach. A five minute drive or a nice 1.5 mile walk on the beach to the boardwalk and charming beach town of Bethany.
