Great place!

amazing condo! We loved the screened in porch! The condo had everything we needed and more! Being right on the bay was so relaxing. We would defiantly rent it again!

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our week at Bethany Bay. (July 1-8, 2017). Upon our arrival Bob the owner greeted us and got us settled with lots of info for dinning and beaches. This first floor condo is just lovely! Decorated to feel like home and not a rental, spotlessly clean. Having bath towels and linens included as well as a washer and dryer in the unit was a great bonus.

The screened in porch was our favorite spot. We spent our mornings and evenings watching the view of the bay and the birds as well as sunset. We also enjoyed fireworks the first few nights from surrounding communities without having to leave the porch!

Bethany Bay resort is fantastic, family friendly and beautiful. The pool facility is top notch, the playground is brand new. Walking trails, golf, we enjoyed it all.

On Bob's recommendation, we went to the Delaware State Park seashore beaches (10-15 minutes away). They were spectacular! Clean less crowded. We walked around Bethany Beach and Rehoboth to enjoy the boardwalk and shops but for swimming and going to the beach, the state park was perfect.

The condo location is about 40 minutes away from Assateague Island National Park. This island is home to wild ponies/horses and is a must visit for any nature/outdoor lover. It was by far our favorite day of the vacation. Bring your beach stuff and sunscreen, it is home to a beauritful beach, walking trails and the horses are amazing.

We highly recommend this location for anyone, families, couples, grandparents or retires, it truly suits everyone. Thanks you Bob & Deb for sharing this with us. We will be back next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for that review .Thank you also for booking with us. I will show it to Deb and Anna. They keep our units clean, fresh and up to snuff. The back screened porch is perfect for watching the bay and boats. Bethany Bay is run so well and yes the pool and kiddy pool is great. We just got a lot of new umbrellas and table and chairs this year. How about that restaurant at the Delaware State Park Beach? Did you see the great fire pit in the evening on the first floor? Its big and bright with chairs all around it for watching .Yes shopping is close but the vacation condo is out of the way and quiet. Once again, t hank you for booking with us and please come again.

Perfect location for us

  • 4 of 5

The place was beautiful with a fabulous view. The screened in porch was a great place to see the sunrise to the right and sunset to the left. Bob was so friendly and informative. We loved that with a short drive we could visit: Bethany beach, OCMD, Fenwick, Assateague and Rehobeth but was away from the hustle of those places. It was great. Very relaxing, even with a 4 yr old and 6 wk old. Highly recommend it!

Picturesque View

  • 4 of 5

Staying at this vacation rental was very enjoyable. The view from our condo was beautiful and we loved sitting on the screened patio looking over the bay. There are beaches a short drive from the complex and plenty of beach shops and a Tanger Outlet. If you didn't want to drive to the beach the pool area was awesome! Our condo was roomy and had everything we needed. Plenty of restaurants and grocery stores close by. Thanks Mr. Barber for greeting us and showing us around the condo.

Owner's Response: Thank you for booking with us and the review. That view is great. Watching the dock, boats, bridge and the birds on the bay from the screened porch is relaxing. Bethany Beach and Delaware State Park Beach are great. They are not as loud or crowded. Shopping is close and not overly expensive. I hope you did enjoy your vacation condo. Please come again. Bob B

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the condo in Bethany Bay this past weekend and it was really a wonderful experience. My family and I have never been to the area before and we would like to make this place our family vacation every year! Bob greeted us when we first arrived and he was very accommodating and answered all of my questions about the area/condo. The condo overlooks the bay and has wonderful views all day long. Also, we have two small children and the property had the best kiddie pool (pool toys included!) and a new playground area for them. Everything from inside the condo to the property outside was immaculate and clean.

The condo is literally an 8 minute drive to the beach and other family activities. The beach area is also very clean and there is no cost to get on the beach. You must pay to park your car by the beach but is about $4.00 for 2 hours of time and you can download an app to your mobile device to pay for your parking so you do not even need to leave the beach when you get settled in!

I can't wait to return next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you for booking with us. Yes the view and location are great. Its close to the beach but a bit private. Its always nice to see little ones having a new vacation beach experience. That kiddie pool is great. My grandchildren love it also. All the mom's, dad's, grand mom's and granddad's love it also. That new parking app. works. Thank you again for booking with us and please come again. Bob B.

Bethany Bay is near Bethany Beach, Ocean City, Dewey Beach and Rehoboth Beach. It is also near The Delaware State Seashore and Delaware State Parks. Numerous boardwalks & beaches, golf courses, restaurants, and shopping! Our vacation rental is off the beaten path-yet just minutes to everything.
