About Toni Schrock

My family resided in Baltimore, MD so, I grew up going to the Delaware Beaches. My family owned a camp ground store which was right across from where the beach house is today. We actually watched the beach houses being built. I love it there, still has such a nice beach feel. Very relaxing and still so natural. It has changed through the years, but it has only gotten better.

Why Toni Schrock chose Tower Shores

This property was built in the 1960's and still has a nostalgic feel of days gone by. This was our family vacation home and I have wonderful memories of a life with ease, swimming in the ocean, looking for shells or making new friends at the playground, it was a great time in my life. A true beach house! Enjoy sitting on the balconies while your children are playing at the park or board games. Keep your family close or adventure out for a great night of fun for adults or family fun.

What makes this townhome unique

I fell in love with this property because of the serene feeling it has. Not a lot of hustle and bustle. I can relax with my family and friends, cook a great dinner and wake up to sea gulls and head to the beach. I can walk back for lunch or bathroom breaks, very important!

Nice Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our vacation at this property. It is a great value east of route 1 for those seeking a private beach and classic Bethany vacation. The place is a bit dated which added to the charm. Owner was easy to work with and the process of checking in and out was seamless . I will definitely consider staying here in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you Larry for such kind words. I am so happy you and your family enjoyed your stay at 34 Dune Road. It is a wonderful place to make memories! I love your comment about the place being dated, I have struggled for years to bring it up to current standards, but I love the way it is. We are going to try and update the kitchen for next summer, but I am going to try very hard to keep the same feel as it has now. I hope you come back and let me know what you think!!

Great Location!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at the beach with friends and family. The house was comfortable and had everything we needed. The house feels like an old fashioned beach vacation! We made some great memories. The house is a short walk to the beach. There is a playground for the little ones when they wanted to run off energy. The area is not commercialized at all, we loved that. The owners were very accommodating with all of our questions. I highly recommend this home for your beach vacation! We will be going back next year!

Great Value and Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

If you want to stay at the Taj Mahal, choose another location; however, if you want to stay at a very nice, clean, comfortable, well-maintained beach house at a price that allows you to not just stay at the beach, but also enjoy the beach then this is your place! Condo is a minute from a nice private beach to watch the sunrise on and play in the surf. You can also see the sunset from the front deck. Close to Bethany and Rehoboth for the boardwalk, shopping, and restaurants. We enjoyed our week stay here cooking in and eating out. The bathroom remodels are nice. Our bed was very comfortable. My wife is a clean freak and she felt at home. You will lightly hear neighbors and some road noise, but that is part of a beach house. Owner is very delightful and helpful. We look forward to our next stay here.

Bethany Visit

  • 5 of 5

Overall the rental met our needs and had so many things we needed. Super close to the beach and plenty of room for our entire family. The location was awesome and the kitchen ,laundry and outdoor shower was great to have!! Loved the balcony - bring your bug spray, you will need it! Very cool to see the WWII tower outside the rental for a cool historical perspective.

We love this home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying here for years and absolutely love it. Beach house charm and its only a 1/2 a block to the beach. We love looking at the lake from one balcony, the historic tower and greenery from the second balcony and glimpses of the ocean from the 3rd level balcony. Once you stay here you feel like you have been coming here forever and you will come again and again. It is our home away from home. Fat Tuna on MD 26 is one of our favorite restaurants and we love traipsing up to Rehoboth to browse the stores. Grotto Pizza is a must.

The house is located in a small beach side community. True beach vacation, however close to all activities. Many activities for children including rides at the boardwalk, mini golf, theme parks and more. Excellent restaurants in the area can't go wrong. Hammerheads is located at the state park near the Indian River Bridge. On the bay, great views and family friendly, a must visit place. One mile from the beach house. There is something for everyone to do in the area.
