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. The family room has vaulted ceilings, bright lights and plenty of sitting room (we purchased all new furniture for this room in March 2017). 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 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 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!.

Wonderful family vacation in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

My two adult children, their spouses, and my four grandchildren just spent a week in this most comfortable and beautiful home. The location is convenient to beaches, shops, grocery store, and salt pond. The salt pond was beautiful and we had fun going crabbing and paddle boarding there. The community pools and playground were quite nice and it was so convenient to have those options right there with four young children. The very spacious and clean garage and driveway were perfect for the kids to ride their little bikes and scooters. The owner was very responsive to any needs or questions we had. We are already considering returning next year. Susan M.

Wonderful weekend getaway !

  • 5 of 5

The house is more spacious and open then what the pictures depict. My Mother uses a walker and she moved very comfortably around the house . The home is located in a lovely , peaceful section of Salt Pond . It is a short distance to get onto the major roads . We even saw 8 deer when leaving around dusk one evening.Also,the rain shower head in the shared bathroom was a favorite . Ignacio was very prompt to answer any questions I had about the house . We had a wonderful time and hope to return again soon .

Lovely trip

  • 4 of 5

We spent 11 days in this home. This was our first visit to the DE beach area and we definitely want to return. We had great weather, loved the shopping and the restaurants.

The community of Salt Pond is lovely and quiet while also being a central location to Rehoboth, Ocean City and beaches. The owner was very easy to deal with and always available if needed.

Hop, skip and a jump to Bethany Beach

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home. The pictures do not do it justice. The house is very roomy. Beds were comfortable. The neighborhood was beautiful and quiet. A great grocery store right around the corner. We had a blast and can't wait for our next summer vacation!

A great vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A very nice place to bring the family together and spend a week at the beach. Clean and attractive, open living space, comfortable beds, and well-equipped kitchen. We loved the screened in porch. And being able to bring the family dog was a real plus. The neighborhood is quiet and attractive; a nice place to walk; proximity to the Fred Hudson trail and the executive golf course was convenient. The owner was very responsive and organized. Overall a great experience. Would highly recommend it!
