Property description

Salt Pond Golf Club with Community Center, Pools, Tennis, etc. (Saturday check-in during the summer months; otherwise, any day of week)

This cozy, one-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 or a week 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, indoor pool and hot tub (only during 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 is about a 10 minute walk.

The house is spacious throughout. The family room has vaulted ceilings, bright lights and plenty of seating room. Depending on your mood, you may choose to relax watching cable TV or DVDs on either of the two flat screen TVs or instead you may wish to take advantage of the business center, which has a computer and printer and high-speed internet access with a wireless network.

The master bedroom has a queen bed, a large dresser and closets. Its bathroom has a shower with handles for safer access. The second bedroom has a split-king bed with a large dresser and closet. With a cable outlet and new television, this bedroom is perfect for kids and adults alike. This bedroom shares a large bathroom with the third bedroom, which has two twin beds and an armoire closet. The sofa bed in the living room is new and has a VERY comfortable foam mattress.

The bright kitchen is large and well equipped. With early-day sun and pleasant view of trees and the cul-de-sac, the kitchen is a nice place to be, whether you're preparing or enjoying a meal. With seating for a total 13 both at the table and the bars, the kitchen is big enough for large groups.

If you prefer to entertain elsewhere, the porch and the backyard offer nice alternatives. The 3-season porch is beautiful (remodeled in April 2016) and ideally suited as a pleasant sitting room for lively discussions or reading under the fan on the brand new furniture (purchased September 2015). This room offers floor-to-ceiling views to the open space and trees through crystal clear vinyl windows, which are easy to completely lower and raise depending on how much breeze you want. The backyard has a patio with charcoal grill and plenty of space for the kids to run and play. Kids can also let loose in the cul-de-sac in the front of the house, which has almost no traffic and is within easy sight from the kitchen.

We also installed a new Air Conditioning unit in 2012, new carpeting throughout in May 2013 and a new water heater in April 2016.

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 ten minutes to the north and offers discount outlet malls, more great restaurants, and tree-lined streets. Ocean City and Assateague Island are directly south.

Families or couples preferred and pets are allowed on a case-by-case basis. The check-in is Saturday for weekly rentals. Please call for partial week availability.

Note: The facility fee for use of the amenities in the community center is about $80 (2013) 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.

Address: 1 Heron Court, Bethany Beach, DE 19930

Keywords: House, near ponds, pets, clean, secluded, salt pond community, beach house, golf course,

Note: the gas fireplace and jets in the jetted tub are not functioning right now

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!.
