About Wendy & Jim

We first saw Bethany Bay when we visited friends for the weekend. After two days, my husband said ''we have to buy one of these,' and by the end of the day we did just that. Crazy story, but true. We love our place at the beach, which is a true getaway, and know that you will, too.

Wendy & Jim purchased this condo in 2007

What an amazing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had three people in the house for the week and it was so beautiful. The unit is beautifully decorated, the art work is stunning and the amenities are plentiful. It was a short walk to the pool which is large and has a hot tub and kids pool. There is an exercise room next to the pool which we used every day. We walked the nature trail, saw three deer and lots of heron's. There is the Giant so you can get groceries easily or go to the restaurants that are beautiful and wonderful food. One night we went to the beach where they had a movie showing. That was spectacular! It was quiet, beautiful, relaxing and charming. Will definitely go back again.

Extremely comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been more pleased. We've been vacationing on the Delaware shore for 20 years and this unit is one of the best we've rented. It is roomy, close enough to the beach to enjoy a vacation without fighting crowds and being subjected to noise, and very well equipped. Our group consisted of family and friends age 18 and up and it was good fit for our lifestyle. I would recommend this unit. Well done! We hope to return.

Empty Nesters

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in this clean and and well appointed condo. Everything in the home was as pictured, and it was welcoming and comfortable!

We enjoyed days at the beach, beautiful sunsets in the evening on the deck, and wonderful restaurants nearby. It was quiet and peaceful, and it was easy to feel at home!

It is a perfect get away for a couple, and I imagine in season when the pool is open, a good choice for families with middle school age kids.

Definitely a very nice rental! The owner was a pleasure to work with, and friendly in emails before and after. Would come again to enjoy the beach!

Thanks Wendy!

We were thoroughly impressed with this condo. It was very clean and comfortable and included a lot of little unexpected niceties to make our vacation getaway fun for the entire family!

Beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Bethany Bay for many years, and this condo by far was the nicest we have stayed in. It is beautifully decorated, and the carpet and furniture were extremely clean. It felt like a home rather than a rental. It was very well equipped with kitchen items, and beach gear. I agree with the other review that it would be nice to have an empty cabinet for groceries. It would also be nice to have a couple chairs on the front deck, to avoid the sun during the day. Other than that it was fabulous!

We have been staying at Bethany Bay for a number of years but had to downsize this year to a 2 bedroom condo, and this unit provided all the space we needed. Well equipped and no complaints at all. LOVED the hammock chair too :) We are fans of having a fitness center while on vacation and the pool/hot tub are always a great choice for after a day at the beach! Wendy was great to work with also.
