Property description

Summer (mid-June thru Labor Day) - Week-long stays are Sunday to Sunday. Min stay = 3 nights. Must start or end on a Sunday, without leaving an open single date (if 4 nights remain in a block, can't book 3 of them and leave a single).

This is a townhouse-style home in Bethany Beach, walking distance from the beach (just under a mile). The immediate vicinity is a great area with many nice restaurants and other shops/stores. This private, cozy condo development has 8 units with a central courtyard. The parking lot is directly off Rte 26. Ours is an end unit with one adjacent unit. Our neighbors are very friendly! You can stay closer to the beach but it can cost you thousands $$ more for a week-long stay - this place is the best of both worlds.

WiFi access is included.Kitchen is fully outfitted with appliances, pots, pans, utensils, and coffee maker. Also equipped with a small bag of beach toys, beach chairs, deck chairs/tables, some board games, some sporting equipment, kids toys, infant swing chair, and a portable pack'n play baby crib. Our family uses this several times / year, you are welcome to use what we have, all we ask is you take care of things and kindly replace anything if lost or broken while in use, or at least notify us.

NO PETS, of any type or size, no exceptions. Non-compliance = eviction with no refund and additional cleaning/inconvenience fees. Please think twice before you before you book, there are plenty of pet-friendly options out there.

There are several convenient stores/shops in the immediate area (~200 yards) - Grotto's, Playland arcade, Wawa, Rita's Ice Cream, Capriotti's subs, liquor store, tobacco/cigar shoppe, Bike/outdoor store, manicure place, chinese takeout, deli-style restaurant, Di Febo's Italian Restaurant, and 'Off the Hook' (a good upscale botique seafood restaurant). Nature center/trail & small playground across street. There is a Bethany trolly stop 100 yds away, a great way to get to/from the beach or downtown Bethany. Parking pass is included for free beach area parking (please remember to replace upon checkout).

About 10 miles south of Bethany Beach is Ocean City, known for it's highly commercialized miles-long strip of family-oriented restaurants & attractions, reminiscent of Myrtle Beach. Plenty of good golf courses near Ocean City.

To the north about 10 miles are Dewey and Rehoboth Beaches. Rehoboth has many great restaurants, a boardwalk, a fun daytrip (or eve/dinner trip) for families. Dewey is a nightlife hotspot mainly for the younger generation, live bands and bars are not hard to find.

In summary, Bethany has everything you'd want for a family vacation, and a day trip north or south to take advantage of surrounding beach towns can only add to the experience.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: My wife & I live in Northern VA, with 2 kids, and love going to the beach house in Bethany Beach, DE, as often as we can get there! The kids love it and so do we, there's no better way to get away from it all. I'm originally from Buffalo, NY, wife is from Wilmington, DE. When we go to the beach, things we love to do are.... - Hit the beach! And of course, the hard-earned 4pm happy hour afterwards - Sit out on the deck at night, play cards or trivial pursuit with a group - Day trip to Rehoboth for Playland (kids) and a nice dinner out - Day trip to Ocean City for mini-golf, go-karts, and seafood - Cook up a feast at home one night - seafood, steaks, wine....throw a movie in for the kids - Mondays - family movie night on the beach! (See pic in our 'photos') - Thursdays - bonfire on the beach! - Golf. A few courses in Bethany, many in Ocean City, some in Rehoboth Bethany Beach is a special place for our family, our kids one day will look back on some great times there growing up. We wish the Bethany experience on anyone and hope you find it as great a place as we do!
