Cozy Home in Salt Pond Golf Community - Only 2 Miles from Beach! Just upgraded!

Bedrooms 3
Half Baths1
Space 1,900 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 bedrooms, 1 sofa bed, 2.5 baths and 3-season porch (sleeps 8)

Salt Pond Golf Club with Community Center, Pools, Tennis, etc. (Saturday check-in during the summer months; otherwise, you can check in on 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 (and grocery story) is an easy 10 minute walk.

The house is spacious throughout and newly-remodeled (2018). The family room has vaulted ceilings, bright lights and plenty of sitting room (we purchased all new furniture for this room in March 2017 and replaced all flooring in March 2018). Depending on your mood, you may choose to relax watching cable TV or DVDs on either of the two flat screen TVs, in the screened-in porch 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.

We have 3 bedrooms, all of which have new box springs and mattresses (Feb 2017). 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 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 newly-remodeled kitchen (2018) is large and well-equipped. With early-day sun and a 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 of 13 both at the table and the bars, the kitchen is big enough for large groups. With new granite counter tops and flooring (2018), the kitchen serves as another great place to entertain.

If you prefer to entertain elsewhere, the screened-in 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 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.

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 (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.

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!.

About Ignacio Lulli

We have been renting out our two homes in the Salt Pond since 2005. We make every effort to provide a great rental experience for all of our guests, starting with the initial inquiry through to the return of the security deposit. We have 4 kids who wish that we didn't have to rent out our homes to pay the mortgage. :-)

Ignacio Lulli purchased this house in 2005

What makes this house unique

Very relaxing ... lots of trees and winding roads that are perfect for walking, running and biking ... easy access for kayaking... I wish I could live there!

Our families out of town celebration.

  • 5 of 5

We found the home to be wonderfully comfortable and accommodating for our large family. The great room is spacious! We loved the open floor plan; the kitchen, dining area and great room are wide; they stretch from the front of the home to the very back. The bedrooms are quite large, the master has plenty of space for a pak-n-play or child's portable crib. All of the mattresses are comfy (new) with just the right amount of firmness. The mattress covers and pillows are clean without stains. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals. There were coffee filters and tea towels; there was salt, pepper, sugar, etc. spices to get you started. The 3 season porch easily accommodates larger family gatherings, we had breakfasts on the porch. We had 3 little ones with us who were able to ride scooters in the cul-de-sac where the home is located. There are child safe plug ins in the spare electrical outlets. There are working smoke detectors. The home is safe and secure for all ages; our ages ranged from 20 months to 93 years. The floors are porcelain with the exception of clean, non-spotted, and well cared for carpeting in the bedrooms. The kitchen counters are a gorgeous granite. Our 2 dogs, small and tidy, enjoyed their long walks on their leashes in the quiet neighborhood. There was very little traffic in this community. Our family happily played golf at Salt Pond's Golf Course which is said to be one of the best in the area. Grocery shopping is about a 5 minute drive from the home. Ignacio was extremely prompt with replies, tolerated our reservations that were made rather quickly, and completely and honestly answered each of our questions; we were quite satisfied. We hope to return!

Beautiful home in the perfect peaceful location!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for a beach vacation! It is very clean and newly renovated. The open floor plan makes for a warm and inviting place for the family to hang out. The mattresses are very comfortable! The house is located on a quite cul-de-sac in a beautiful golf community. We enjoyed walking daily and even visited the Salt pond a few times where we saw Osprey in their nests, great blue herons, other shore birds and even a few crabs! The home is a short drive to Bethany beach and it's quaint town (wonderful bookshop and other fun stores). Also it is not far from other beach towns like Rehobeth, Ocean City ( a must see is the Shipwreck museum in Fenwick --it doesn't look like anything from the outside but the owner/diver is an amazing historian and his treasures all have wonderful stories behind them), and Assateague National Park (yes, the ponies do venture out onto the beach!). For those who don't want to travel as much as us, this home is still the perfect place to relax in the beautiful Salt pond golf community (they have a lovely pool, tennis courts, basketball , volleyball, pickel ball, shuffle board, exercise room etc.) and be a short distance to Bethany beach. It was all very relaxing and wonderful--we did not want to leave! The home owner is Very responsive to questions of any kind and we found dealing with him a pleasure. Thanks again!

Beautifully located!

  • 4 of 5

The home is in such a quiet and peaceful neighborhood that you barely realize how close you are to all the attractions of Bethany, Fenwick and Rehoboth! Everything you could want to do and see is within a 5-20 minute ride. The home is in a quiet circle on a golf course - so that was a nice perk for my father, husband and son to be able to play. We all enjoyed a week away at the beach!

Perfect Family Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

This home was just perfect in so many ways. It was clean and spacious and exactly as described. My whole family felt so at home and comfortable and LOVED the screened in porch for early

morning coffee and late night chats with wine and laughing. It was so convenient to get to Bethany for the day on the beach or a night out for dinner, or a quick walk to the grocery store. The neighborhood was beautiful and we even met several neighbors while

outside who were so kind and welcoming. My kids loved fishing at the salt pond and playing outside when we were not at the beach. We could not have enjoyed this home more and will be back!!

Great House and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the Salt Pond Community! The house was clean, conveniently located and had a great open design. Walking distance to the pool, fitness center, club house and grocery store. Close to trails too! And best of all, the house is pet friendly so our whole family enjoyed the vacation. We definitely will come back!
