Salt Pond Golf Club with community center, outdoor pools (in the summer ), an indoor pool and hot tub (in the winter), tennis, etc. (Saturday check in during the summer months; otherwise, any day of week.)
This beautiful, two-story home is located in a community with an 18-hole, par-61 golf course and is about 2 miles from the beach. Enjoy Salt Pond's amenities for a fun golf getaway and/or fun times at the beach. There are plenty of activities for the whole family. A short walk from the house, the community center offers outdoor swimming pools (in the summer), indoor pool and hot tub (in the winter), well-equipped fitness center, tennis, basketball, sandlot volleyball and more. Nearby is a launching area for small boats for access to the Salt Pond (and to the network of canals that connect to the neighboring inlets and eventually to the ocean) and plenty of tree-lined streets and paths for walking, running or biking. The golf pro shop and grocery store is an easy 10 minute walk.
This two-level house, which backs onto the golf course, is spacious and features stylish hardwood and tile flooring throughout as well as high ceilings. The main floor includes the master bedroom suite with private bathroom, a large kitchen with two dining areas, a family room with QUEEN sofa bed and a computer center, a beautiful sun room with another QUEEN sofa bed, the laundry room, powder room and access to the very large deck at the rear of the house. The upstairs includes three other spacious bedrooms and a full bathroom. Each bedroom as well as the sun room, family room and breakfast nook have a ceiling fan for better ventilation.
Our favorite room is the sun room, which receives early-day sun supplemented by beautiful lighting and has pleasant views of the golf course, trees and the deck behind the house. Cozy up in the very comfortable QUEEN sofa bed or choose a comfortable chair in the corner to read your book with the gas fireplace blazing. Depending on your mood, you may choose instead to use the entertainment system to watch cable TV or a DVD on the 42-inch TV with surround sound or just listen to music under the high vaulted ceiling. The room offers seating for up to 13 people for any of your entertaining needs.
The nearby family room has another comfortable QUEEN sofa bed, with a high bar table that seats 4 people and the business center, which has a computer, printer and high-speed internet access with a wireless network. We love the bar table for games or puzzles and typically reserve it for adults during meal times, while the kids eat at the kitchen table. Both sofa beds, by the way, have VERY comfortable mattresses. The family room also has a gas fireplace.
The bright kitchen is spacious and well equipped. With early-day sun and pleasant views of the golf course and deck, the kitchen is a nice place to be, whether you're preparing or enjoying a meal. With seating for 9, both at the table and the counter (NOT including the high bar table described above), the kitchen is big enough for large groups. Also, since the kitchen offers direct access to the deck and the gas grill, this layout is ideal for entertaining or just being part of everything during meal times. With shade over the deck in the afternoon and evening, time spent there at those times are just PERFECT! Just beyond the deck is the back yard and golf course.
The master bedroom on the main floor has a KING bed, 2 large dressers and a walk-in closet under a high vaulted ceiling. This room also has a 32 inch TV connected to a Blu-Ray DVD player that offers access to streaming video content from Netflix, Amazon and other providers. As mentioned above, all bedrooms have ceiling fans for added ventilation. The private bathroom in the master bedroom suite has a shower, 2 separate sinks, a jetted tub and a semi-private toilet.
The upper level has the three other bedrooms and another full bathroom. The mattresses on this floor are brand new as of October 2017. The second bedroom has a QUEEN bed with 2 large dressers, large closet and a 32-inch TV connected to another Blu-Ray DVD player with streaming content. You might not watch too much TV from here, however, because the views of the golf course are gorgeous from this bedroom! The beautiful third bedroom has a QUEEN bed, a large dresser and an ample closet. The fourth bedroom has a QUEEN bed AND a twin bed, a large dresser and an ample closet. The beds and box springs upstairs were purchased in 2018.
We also have a very nice, fully enclosed outdoor shower, with lighting and an electrical outlet.
Bethany Beach is named the 'Quiet Resort' and has a family atmosphere. There are amusement parks, many great restaurants and nightclubs, and bay water activities. Rehobeth Beach is 20 minutes to the north and offers discount outlet malls, more great restaurants, and tree-lined streets. Ocean City and Assateague Island are directly south.
The check-in is Saturday for weekly rentals during the peak summer months. Please call for partial week availability during the non-peak months.
Note: The facility fee for use of the amenities in the community center is $80 (2017) for a pass of 20 “uses” (1 “use” allows 1 person all day use of facilities which equates to $4/person per day) -- cost subject to change. Greens fees are separate but reasonable. Navigate to the URL below the rate section and click on the 'The Salt Pond Golf Course' tab for golf details.
Also note that we do not provide linens or towels, so you'll need to either bring them yourself or arrange to rent them from any of the local companies that provide them. Two options are Sheets at the Beach and Grand Rental Station. Please work with them directly to meet your needs. Thanks!.
