FYI- Be sure to double click the photos so you can read the full caption versus missing the last words. Also, be sure to click on the Video link for a great boat video of the Indian River Bay returning to our home and marina.
Cross the brand new Indian River Inlet Bridge on Route 1 just 5 miles South of Rehoboth, Dewey and Lewes Beaches or 5 miles North of Bethany Beach proper and look West past the RV PARK AND CAMPGROUND to our 'POINT OF LAND' projecting into the INDIAN RIVER BAY ALONG THE FISHERMAN'S INLET. Here, beyond the gate lies a community of 22 huge single family homes and 21 private 3000+ - square foot condos with an 82 slip BEAUTIFULLY REDONE MARINA to the South, tennis court and POOL to the East and FISHING IN THE INLET to the North.
Our condo directly faces the BAY and is just behind a rock jetty that constricts all the tidal waters as they rush in and out with the tides. Fishing and pleasure boats pass by each of your 3 private balconies on their way to the Atlantic Ocean, to anchor and fish in the inlet or motor around to an off shore sandbar. Plenty to watch or just bike to the FABULOUS NEWLY FINISHED Delaware State Park and Beach under the bridge where full changing facilities and parking spaces allow you to enjoy the lifeguarded beach.
Also, THE BIG CHILL opened in 2017 and is the place to be all summer long and is located over the showers at the state park.....so you can all walk to and from the venue along the inlet. Parking is $10 for out of staters and about $5 for in-staters for the day.
TWO bedrooms fitted with King size beds and TWO bedrooms (one is a loft) fitted with double beds. ALL BEDROOMS HAVE THEIR OWN FULL PRIVATE BATHROOMS.
NOTE***There is a crib in one of the bayside master bedrooms, a youth bed and an inflatable queen bed which accounts for the home being able to sleep 8 to 10 to 12 counting use of the aforementioned items. Free private wireless internet.
There is also free private wireless internet. Plus a shower in the garage to cleanup before going upstairs. The list of amenities goes on and on as this is our private vacation spot.
We also have a linen company, Coastal Linens, that provides linens; sheets, towels, bath mats and pillowcases for a small amount (we subsidize a good portion of the total cost) for the week or more if staying longer. This is a must purchase in the interest of everyone's cleanliness....NO EXCEPTIONS. All you have to do is read the tags on the shrink-wrapped bundles and put them on the right bed.
Need a venue for a recommitment ceremony? --our grassy area with the bay in the background as the sun goes down has been well received for family ceremonies. We can easily arrange for other units in the community to join in if your party is large but best to get it started early as the place can fill up. Or, your family can stay here and others can go to our stunning 2 bedroom ocean front Bethany Beach condo in the resort Sea Colony 5 miles South--VRBO.COM/461838.
Need a second place for a large group? While mentioned above--my VRBO neighbors and I cooperate to make it happen!
There are flat panel TVs and DVDs in all 4 bedrooms. A 42 INCH FLAT SCREEN IS IN THE KITCHEN AND A 60 INCH FLAT SCREEN IS IN THE LIVING ROOM.
ALL NEW PLUSH CARPETING WAS INSTALLED IN 2015, PLUS NEW KITCHEN FLOORING AND A NEW REFRIGERATOR WITH WATER AND ICE THROUGH THE DOOR ALSO IN 2015.
The condo rents year round for Saturday to Saturday weeks from May to September and long 3-4 night long weekends or special get-a-ways during the shoulder season. BUT, you have to get around the VRBO reservation system and inquire about a full Saturday to Saturday week and then state the nights you want in the note section. We will then respond with an amended quote for the days you want.
A nice group of families vacationed with us in beginning in 2012 at this home AND at our other home on the ocean at the Resort, Sea Colony VRBO.COM/461838. Bookings for the following year actually begin to come in during July as people come back again or have learned "you really get what you pay for" when you wait too long to book..…….Please see CALENDAR AND RATE TAB as we keep them up to date.
BOOKING IS SIMPLE. You can enter the arrival and departure dates, see the costs and make your reservation. Entering dates will not become a reservation until you actually make a payment. Or you can hit the BOOK NOW button, see the costs and you can then make your payment with a credit card through VRBO. You will not accidentally make a reservation so do not worry.
The Salt Pond Golf Club is a few miles off Route One and is quite amazing for its well kept greens, carts and clubhouse.
MINIMUM AGE TO RENT IS 35...NO EXCEPTIONS.
