About the property

Located just one off the beach in the private, gated community of Bethany Dunes. Come and enjoy the serenity and spectacular views our house has to offer. The reverse floor plan allows you to have ocean views from every room of the house and a panoramic view from the third floor sun deck. Private beach access is directly across the street.

The house offers five spacious bedrooms, two of which are master suites, and one is a third floor loft that houses six twin beds and also has an attached bathroom.

There are multiple decks for relaxing in the sun and a screened porch with ample seating for your comfort. A game room is located on the ground level with full sized air hockey and foosball tables. Nice for rainy day play.

The entire house has been completely renovated within the past 2 years including the kitchen, all bathrooms, and all new wood flooring. The kitchen is fully stocked with stainless steel appliances including a stand alone ice maker that will make up to 30 lbs. of ice a day for your convenience.

There are two outdoor showers so you can clean off after a day on the beach. Community tennis courts are also available. It is very safe for children to ride bikes and explore while parents can supervise and enjoy watching while relaxing on the decks.

Linens and towels are not provided. I can provide the name of a local, reputable linen rental company if interested.

Absolutely the best for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

There were 14 of us and we had the best vacation ever. Every year we look for accommodations for all of us 10yr to 70+. This home was the best ever. There was a bedroom with 6 beds for all the grandchildren, they were separated by bedside drawer stands-perfect for girls and boys with a bathroom near-by.The walk to the beach is just "footsteps" away and the beach is clean and uncrowded-Delightful!! Showers for after the beach are perfect to lessen the sand in the house. There is a game room that the kids really enjoyed-air hockey tournament anyone? The bike rentals let us enjoy the Bethany Beach shaved ice. The best part is the main area with the great room, kitchen, dinning area and a beautiful screen porch where there is a table for eating and a sectional sofa for resting, reading or just enjoying the great breezes. The amenities are bountiful. The owners were always available by phone when needed-Thank you so much for everything!!

Fantastic and Family Friendly!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house is amazing and we had a great week. Our family has members ranging from 2 years to 65 years of age and this rental property was a dream come true for each and every one of us. The kids loved the large dorm room upstairs, riding their bikes around the community and being so close to the private beach. The adults enjoyed relaxing on the screened in porch, the spectacular view from the decks, spending time in the spacious common area, being a short walk from the beach and having a freestanding ice maker! The gated community was quiet, well maintained and a quick car ride (or bike ride) away from the town of Bethany.

The decor of this home is lovely. There are plenty of bathrooms, the beds are comfortable and there is enough space for a large group of people to vacation together without feeling like they are on top of one another. The kitchen was well stocked and has all the equipment needed to easily prepare meals for the entire family. We were happy to find bikes, sand toys and beach chairs in the garage.

If this property is available, we will definitely rent again in the future!

Thank you for a week full of wonderful memories!

Fantastic Family Friendly Rental

  • 5 of 5

I would like to extend a personal thank you to the owners of this home! My family along with two other families rented their home 6/28 - 7/5. We couldn't have asked for a better set up! We had children ranging in ages from 5 - 12 and everyone was happy! We loved the beach - the very safe quiet neighborhood - the fantastic updated kitchen, where all the grown ups could gather have cocktails and prepare meals - while the children played cards and games on the porch or rode bikes throughout the neighborhood. Our older boys met wonderful friends and spent evenings playing man hunt and capture the flag, sleeping soundly in the upstairs loft which contains 6 twin beds and a private bath and balcony - their own little suite! Every evening without exception, we sat on the screened in porch and enjoyed great conversation and fireworks - absolutely magical! Relaxing, and fun - all amenities were considered! Downtown Bethany is a 5 minute drive where you find family friendly restaurants, surf shops, a boardwalk, and beach sundries galore! We couldn't have asked for another thing!

Thank you thank you for a wonderful week!
