Please avoid leaving open single dates (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 quiet, 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!

About Mike Harloff

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. We are originally from Buffalo, NY and 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!

Everything went smooth. Wonderful experience. The only thing missing was a hot shower, but that literally was the only issue. Thanks

Great location, lots of space and very comfy

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and Mike is a wonderful host. He covered everything to make our visit easy and relaxing. The place has a lot of space and it is spotless. There were 4 adults and one child. We liked the master suite upstairs for some peace/escape time and the two bedrooms downstairs with the bunks were perfect as well. Kitchen well equipped. No problems with parking. Will definitely be coming back! Thanks so much Mike!

Great place for beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location and house set-up for our beach vacation getaway for 2 moms and 5 kids. The bedroom setups and 2 bathrooms, full kitchen & dining area, and living room for reading & games made for a nice place to go home to after a full day away. We made good use of the beach parking pass, chairs & umbrella, which would have cost each day $15, $20 and $12 respectively. Kids loved having Rita's ice across the street; moms appreciated the Wawa a short walk away.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beach property! So close to everything! Quiet location and made you feel secluded even though you were only moments away from everything. We enjoyed the diner right next door and loved having the parking pass. This made trips to the beach with small children easy. Everything is provided for you. Loved having the umbrellas and beach chairs at the property. This saved us from having to bring our own. Will be hoping to book this property again next year!

Bethany Beach

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.
