About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 13)

The Yellow Submarine is the perfect house at the beach!

The first level is an open floor plan (L shaped couch, TV/DVD, dining table, kitchen island, full kitchen) Best of all...there is a LARGE screened-in porch...a perfect 'room' at the beach!

Three of the four bedrooms are on the first level. Two share a half bathroom (smaller rooms with one double bed each) and the third one (king) has its own half bath and sliding glass doors to the front porch.

The second level has a full bath, a large bedroom (two queen beds) and a loft which doubles as a living room (TV) during the day and '5th sleeping area' at night (queen sleep sofa)

The roof top balcony/deck is a perfect place for the kids to hang out or for anyone to enjoy some outdoor SUN time.

Enjoy wireless internet throughout the house!

Outside. . enjoy the 1/2 acre yard, screened-in porch, picnic table, corn hole, grill and ENCLOSED OUTDOOR SHOWER!

Renting The Yellow Submarine gives you full rights to the PRIVATE BEACH for your entire stay. Middlesex Beach is a guarded beach . . and only those with passes may be on the beach (The Yellow Submarine comes with beach passes!!) There will be no problem finding a prime spot in the sand.

The Yellow Submarine is 2 blocks from the beach and you can walk it in approx. 5 minutes. You also have the option of driving and using the parking passes that we provide. Since only those with passes are allowed in. . . there is NEVER a problem finding a parking spot.


The privacy extends to the house and yard too! You will be nestled on a dead end street. . among the trees(for privacy). . . cars do not park on the side of the road. . you can take walks, ride bikes. . . it's nothing like any other place at the beach!! (yet you are steps away from all that the beach offers!! (mini golf, boardwalks, restaurants, stores, etc))

In less than two minutes you can walk to Subway, McDonald's, Bethany Seafood, the dollar store, a chinese restaurant and more!

About The Owner

The Yellow Submarine is owned by Steve & Carol Paul (we also own (and rent) The Yacht-Sea Beach House (8 Errett Rd)

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Delaware

We purchased The Yellow Submarine after years of loving Middlesex Beach! We have been vacationing (renters ourselves!) in Middlesex since 1987. Once we found the private beach, we couldn't go to any other beach! Our children have grown up being allowed to play frisbee, surf and run freely on an uncrowded beach. We also came to love the privacy offered from the 1/2 acre yards in Middlesex. We have tried to make The Yellow Submarine a Renter's Dream by adding all the things we wished were at the numerous houses we rented over the years (and by copying the things we LOVED at those other rentals too) Middlesex Beach is our favorite place in the world!

What makes this house unique

My husband's favorite thing is that we park our cars when we arrive and get the bikes out. Our kids love to bike to the end of the street and buy ice cream after dinner. They also love biking to the boardwalk. Our younger nieces and nephews love the dead end street where they are allowed to bike and play ball in the middle of the road! We love that we can walk and bike up to Summer Salt's Bar & Grille for wings and drinks! My parents love the fine dining in the area (Blue Coast, Parkway, Sedona's & More). The kids love biking to Candy Kitchen, the Dollar Store, Chinese food and the beach supply store. Mostly we love that, in Middlesex, we are secluded! Every night we fix our beach drinks, turn on the tiki lights on the porch and press play on the beach CD...then sit back, relax and smile!

Home away from home

This place is great! which is probably why we return every year. Carol is awesome and everything we need for a great time away at the beach is right at your fingertips; from the dozens of board games and huge selection of movies and books inside to the bean bag toss and bicycles outside. There was never any shortage of things to do and we never once heard the kids say those dreaded words "I'm bored" which was enough to make our trip a success on that alone. I also loved that the appliances are new and everything is well kept and clean. If you're looking for a nice quiet beach vacation I would highly recommend this house.

Bethany Beach is a great location. Lots to do in the area. Highly recommend visiting Berlin ... the town is so quaint. Assateague Island was beautiful and we actually saw some wild horses. Don't miss out eating at Arenas Deli - delicious.

Lovely beach cottage

  • 4 of 5

Located a short stroll from the quiet private beach. Loaded with the conveniences of a home. The floor plan accommodated 3 families with a small children quite comfortably. The children loved The Yellow Submarine. We all hope to come back real soon! Thanks so much for a nice getaway.

Really nice!

Great house and wonderful location! Appreciated having the second fridge and the large screened porch. The open layout for the living room and kitchen was perfect for our group. Also, having central air was awesome for the week we came! Thank you!

Fun place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at the Yellow Submarine. This was our first stay at this house but have stayed in Middlesex several years in a row. We were two adults and 5 teenage girls. Lots of sleeping room and lots of eating and lounging space so we weren't on top of each other. Love how sunny and bright it is. Loved spending time on the screened-in porch! Quick replies when I had a couple of questions for the owner prior to our trip.

Owner's Response: This review was posted by a renter who stayed in our (larger) home a few doors down (8 Errett Rd-Yacht Sea Beach House) We are thrilled they loved it so much and had such a great time... but just wanted to make sure readers knew which house the "large" group stayed in :)
