Great Beach Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect home for our entire family to spend quality time together! Loved the decor and bright colors. Spacious and clean bedrooms, bathrooms, large kitchen and living areas. The kids loved the loft!

We would drive to the beach in the morning (so easy to get to and park); and spend the afternoon at the pool. The best of both worlds. Spent time bicycling, going to the playground nearby and taking oh so many walks across the bridge and pond! The kids loved seeing deer, chickens, and rabbits around the perimeter of the community. The adult children made daily runs to the local Starbucks and Grotto's Pizza. It was a pleasure to work with Lisa. She was readily available to answer all questions and was most accommodating. Thank you for opening your home to all of us! Loved it! We all voted "yes" to return!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, thank you again Lisa! The pictures do not do this house justice. The place is huge. There is an enormous attention to detail from a decoration standpoint.

We had 4 couples (8 adults) and two children under two years of age and traveled down from CT/NY. There was plenty of room for all of us with plenty of room to spare. The kitchen has everything you need. They provide a Keurig and additional coffee machine. They provided an independent griddle where we made large breakfasts in the morning. We used the dishwasher, washer and dryer wish ease. Bathrooms were incredibly clean and they also had good water pressure. The charcoal grill with charcoal tower was used numerous times. One important item to note that was not in the description was that the house has a ping pong table! We played ping pong numerous times after getting back from the pool/beach/tennis courts. Very fun.

The pool keys and bikes (and locks) were easily accessible. The house is in a gated community and the pool was essentially our own for 4 days (not many of the locals or other people renting within the community used the pool). It was phenomenal.

For those with kids, there is a playground right next to the pool. My (almost) two year old spent hours on that playground. She also spent hours in the kid pool next to the larger pool. This location is incredibly kid friendly.

We also rode bikes to the beach (about a 5 to 8 minute ride) and to downtown/boardwalk area (same distance). Lisa provides 3 locks which we used with ease.

We will definitely be coming back. Everything was incredibly enjoyable and Lisa was a great host. Thanks again!

Wonderful home in Bethany Beach

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a wonderful, relaxing vacation at this home in Bethany Beach. The home is well appointed with everything that you need: fully stocked kitchen including a keurig coffee maker, grill for barbecuing, bikes, beach toys and beach cart for carrying everything, plus cable and internet for those rainy days. There was plenty of space for 6 adults and two toddlers without anyone feeling like they were on top of each other. Quick 5 minute drive to Bethany Beach or an easy 20 minutes up the street to Rehoboth and the outlets. I would highly recommend this house for your stay. The homeowner is a pleasure to work with and extremely responsive! Everyone loved it so much, we hope to come back next year!

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

we really enjoyed our stay at this great house in Bethany lakes. It was perfect for our family reunion of my husbands siblings and parents. The house had everything we needed and the pool in the community was so great to have right there since we have a 2 year old. getting to the town and beach were a quick drive and again we were able to bring a lot of supplies with us that the house already had. We would come back!
