About Rick and Marian McLaughlin

Rick and Marian are from Pennsylvania. We love the Delaware beach and Indian River Bay. Our condo is decorated to the themes that can be appreciated each visit to Bethany Bay Resort. It's perfect for a small family for a long weekend or week at the beach.

Day trips to Rehobeth Beach, Dewey Beach, Fenwick Island, Ocean City, MD, Berlin, MD Washinton, DC Chincoteague, VA Annapolis, MD and other Chesapeake attractions are always fun.

Rick and Marian McLaughlin purchased this condo in 2004

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you! The condo is beautiful. Weather was perfect & the views from the porch facing the bay were priceless... This location should be called "The Stress Buster". We loved every single minute of our stay in your condo. Hope to return next year.

Family Beach Trip

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying here--it was clean and well maintained. The view of the Bay was just gorgeous. We've stayed in other rentals that were really in bad shape so we were thrilled to find this one. Rick and Marian were very responsive and wonderful to work with. The condo size was generous--all the rooms were spacious and everything was comfortable. The screened-in porch with Bay views was a big plus. It was a little to chilly for us to use the pool but we did hang out there for a bit and the kids loved it. It's a little off the beaten path but we liked that it was quiet. We would stay here again and would recommend it highly. Thanks Rick and Marian for sharing your place--we had a great time!

Fantastic location, view and owners...couldn't of been easier or nicer.

A quiet, relaxing location smack dab in the middle of the Bethany Beach, State Parks and everything "The Quiet Resort" has going for it...highly recommended.

Beautiful views!

Lovely condo in a great location. Saw many forms of wildlife. Beautiful views from the screened in porch, however the weather did not cooperate. It was overcast and rainy most of the weekend.

Amazing views and great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Bethany Bay, it was so quiet and private at the resort it helped us escape the hustle and bustle of beach traffic and huge crowds. All while being a short drive to the beach and activities. The condo was very clean and updated, and everything was accessible and ready for our stay. We enjoyed using the pool, golf course, and walking trails during or stay as well. The views from the front and back porch were very nice and we loved the extensive wildlife at the resort, we counted 27 deer during our stay. We'll definitely be back, thank you very much for everything!

This 2 bedroom condo is spacious with beautiful views of the wet lands and Indian river. The home is clean, cozy and accommodating. The location is close to the beach, stores and dining.

I enjoyed a very relaxing stay.

Bethany Bay Resort #48019

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very prompt and helpful in their advance communications. The condo was in perfect condition when we arrived. It is a lovely, peaceful, well-appointed two-bedroom, two-bath unit on the third floor with all amenities necessary for a relaxing stay. Easy parking right out front. We used the tennis courts almost daily as well as the pool and jacuzzi, and thoroughly enjoyed having unrestricted viewing access from the master bedroom, living room, and kitchen of the Indian River inlet and bridge day and night. The Bethany Bay Resort community is 4 miles from Bethany -- a car was absolutely necessary. If you don't want to drive on vacation you are restricted to the resort, which is fine if you like the above-mentioned recreational activities as well as golf, the nature walking trails, the fitness room and other facilities. We used all of them but also like to kayak and planned to go motor-boating on the waters of the bay. Unfortunately there was no key at the unit to unlock the gate over the boat launch, a disappointment that we only discovered after arriving and which necessitated a change in our plans. This was the only "wrinkle" in an otherwise very smooth and enjoyable vacation. I trust that the owners will correct this in future or make explicit that the boat launch is not available in their pre-arrival instruction packet.

Overall we had a really good week and are happy we rented this property.

Owner's Response: Dear Marcie, Thank you for your kind and accurate review of your stay at our condo for your Bethany Bay Resort vacation. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and utilized all the amenities available at Bethany Bay Resort. We appreciate your feedback. We are sorry that you we not able to access the boat ramp for a trailered boat and will contact Bethany Bay Resort about securing a boat ramp key for our guests in the future. In the past, guests have been able to use the ramp for kayaking without unlocking the slip gate but understand that this is not practical for using the slip for a trailered boat. In the mean time we have made revisions to our arrival instructions until we have secured the key access for our guests from Bethany Bay Resort in the future. All the best, Rick and Marian
