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 Delaware

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.

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!!

Great house for a two family beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We’ve stayed here for the past four years. My brother and I bring our families together for a week on the beach, and this house fits the bill for us. It’s a nice large, yet cosy house that has a great beach house feel. Airy and light, with the feel of a house that’s been loved and seen many fun-filled summers. It’s not too precious, nor is it rough around the edges. It’s always clean and lends itself to relaxation. There are always beach chairs, toys, and even a swing, hammock and seating area under the house for those not-quite-beach-days where the kids (and parents) still want to be outside. Sheets and towels are provided. It’s north of town in an area that avoids the heavy crowds. The beach is wonderful, and the owners have always been very responsive and easy to work with.

OUR FAMILY RETURNING FOR 4th YEAR!

  • 5 of 5

We're so very happy to have found this beautiful beach home! There's an abundant amount of space available in the home and additional living area on the decks, screened porch, and below the house. And we especially appreciate the parking available at the house -- we easily fit five cars in the driveway and carport.

We're daily beach goers with five little children in tow and, because this house is situated in a gated community, we never need to worry about the children's safety on the street walking to the beach.

We really enjoy having such a large kitchen because we rarely dine out, though there are restaurants nearby to fit every budget.

Our family travels to this comfortable and inviting beach home from four different states -- including California! It's our "home" for two weeks every summer, and we hope to spend many more summers here.
