About Vic Omelchenko
Our family lives in Maryland in the Washington, DC area and my wife and I met at the beach. We love the beach and try to get here as often as we can. We have a son and daughter and a Golden Retriever that my wife named Dewey, after Dewey Beach, where we shared beach houses with friends when we first got out of school. When not fixing things up at the beach, I might be found on the ski slopes in the Winter or at the race track in my Corvette the rest of the year.
Vic Omelchenko purchased this House in 1996
Why Vic Omelchenko chose Bethany Beach
We used to rent houses in the Outer Banks for many years and designed our beach home incorporating our favorite aspects of these houses. We would probably still be going to the Outer Banks, if we had not discovered North Bethany. North Bethany has large homes on piles, with large lots and private beaches, very similar to the Outer Banks, but about 3 hours closer and with many more amenities. We designed the house so that it would comfortably fit multiple families/groups, with many get-away areas for both the kids and adults. We also wanted a large, inviting great room area as well as a house with multiple master suites so that all could have privacy when they wanted it.
What makes this House unique
If you like to have privacy on the beach, where your closest neighbor is 20 feet away (even in July and August), the Preserve is for you. Bethany Beach is a short 2 miles from the house and you can bike or jog there if you like. The house is a short walk to the pool, tennis court or the beach. You will never need to hunt for a parking space when you want to go to the beach. There are many, many restaurants, outlet stores, movie theatres, game parks, golf courses, etc. close to the house. Splurge and treat yourself to a wonderful house and beach community.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
This house was perfect! A minute walk to the private beach and an eight minute bike ride to the town of bethany to get ice cream and shop.
The home was equipped with pretty much all you could think of and the rooms were decorated tastefully! The pictures on the web doenst do it justice!
We would like to rent again next year!
Lovely Beach house, great owner
The property is a lovely home on a Cul De Sac next to beach access, it was as advertised and the owners we very attentive to our needs.
Great vacation home in North Bethany
Wonderful beach vacation home in private gated community with pool and tennis court. This recently remodeled home is located on cul de sac with easy access to the pool, tennis court and the nearby beach. 3 master suites, 3 family bedrooms and a loft. 5 bathrooms well placed and convenient. Kitchen has high end appliances and a large dining area for extended families. Golf, kayaking, restaurants, bike rental and downtown are all 10 minute drives. Grill and eat in, order in, or go out to eat- all are convenient. This is the vacation home you will fall in love with- the right house in the right place!!
We feel blessed that we are able to share our beach home not only with our friends and relatives who travel from all over the US to be with us every summer, but to share it with our “guests”. We love the changes and upgrades to the house and are glad that others feel the same way.
Perfect in Every Way
My family has been going to Bethany over the summer for years, and this is by far the most amazing place we've ever stayed. Everyone had a wonderful time. This house was absolutely perfect, and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Much of the house was recently renovated, and everything inside it is completely pristine and lovely. The kitchen is well-equipped, and includes a restaurant-quality range and all the utensils you'll need. The house is extremely spacious, and still felt huge even with six children and six adults. There are lots of different hangout places inside the house, and enough room for everyone to hang out together, or to split up in smaller groups. The house is decorated very tastefully, and everything about it is extremely comfortable. We enjoyed lovely dinners on the screened-in porch, and lunches sitting on bar chairs at the counter.
The house is a 2 minute walk to the beach and a 2 minute walk to the pool. We took the kids to the beach every morning, came home for lunch, and then went to the pool in the afternoon. The children in our group range from 1 to 12, and the close proximity to the beach and pool made frequent trips back to the house extremely convenient. Because the house is in a cul-de-sac and so close to the beach and pool, we felt comfortable letting the older kids walk back to the house by themselves. There could not be a more perfect location, in our opinion.
Vic, the owner, is extremely accommodating and welcoming. He graciously and promptly answered our many questions prior to arrival, and even mailed back some clothes that a member of our group inadvertently left behind in a drawer. Vic made us feel at home and welcome, despite not even knowing us.
We enthusiastically recommend this house for the best beach vacation possible!
We recently renovated the house and wanted to make it as warm and inviting as possible. It started as a small to medium renovation and morphed into a complete house make-over. We are glad that we did not cut any corners and that the many details that we worked hard on are being appreciated.
