About Billy Carroll is manager who lives onsite in separate cottage

We have lived in Bethany Beach for nearly 25 years. The family picture was taken during our Christmas Reunion. We all stayed together in our house. The backdrop is the dock down the street at the Salt Pond. There is also a studio, which is in use year round rental.

We live in the area as do most of our family especially in the summer. We love this area and the family small town atmosphere in the 'Quiet Resorts' and hope you enjoy it as well.

Billy Carroll is manager who lives onsite in separate cottage purchased this house in 2000

Why Billy Carroll is manager who lives onsite in separate cottage chose Delaware

This very private community we always loved the setting.

The house is designed to maximize covenience and utility for a large family yet maintain individual privacy. The Kitchen and Living area are on the second floor for the view. The open 2 story foyer unites upstairs with downstairs. Yet the bedroom occupants can get quiet respite from the rest of the house by simply closing their door.

It is secluded yet very convenient. It is a 3 hour drive from the bridges and tunnels into NYC. It takes less than 3 hours from Philadelphia. It takes 45 minutes to get to Salisbury, MD. Baltimore and Washington are each about 2-3 hours. All final driving times depend upon traffic so we always leave as early as possible.

But the property is very convenient to local attractions, businesses and shopping as well. The beaches are just down the street. The State Park system is across the street. Ocean City amusement parks and night life are a 15 minute drive. Dewey Beach and Rehoboth Beach are 10-15 minutes away in the opposite direction.

What makes this house unique

There is enough to do within walking/biking distance that you can literally stay here for the week and never use your car. However, Movie Theaters, Amusement Parks, Water Slides, Resturants, Grocery Stores and other attractions are very close.

We fell in love with the Salt Pond and the activities here. We especially loved kayaking and crabbing with young children. Early moning sunrises with a cup of coffee and a camera while sitting at the dock or later at night watching the sunset are a unique treasure here.

If you have young children and/or grandchildren you must visit FUNLAND in Rehoboth Beach. This family owned amsement park has been in continuous operation for over 60 years and is considered a National Treasure. The rides designed for toddlers are so amazingly simple and inepensive for young parents that it is a miracle that they still thrive economically.

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot for our 2 families. The house was spacious, clean and comfortable. We had ages ranging from 50's down to 12. There was plenty to do for all. The homeowners are very nice, helpful, accommodating and not intrusive at all. There was a basket of wine, crackers and cheese waiting for us, as well as a case of water in the fridge. Nice big binder of activities and restaurants was also helpful. Having the pool right there was fun & convenient for the mornings and afternoons. We also loved hanging out and crabbing on the dock. We took a break from the ocean one day and rented a boat to cruise and hang out in the Bay. Would love to return some day and would highly recommend this house as your future vacation destination. It was the perfect vacation. Fun was had by all!!!

Great Stay for Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, charming and clean house, well maintained. Close to the pond , nearest beach is 3+ miles away, Billy provided a parking permit for beach. The pool is nice and clean. Kids enjoyed the pool. The kitchen and master bedroom are upstairs, open and sunny area with a wrap round deck. The kitchen had all required stuff, from plates to bottle opener, the fridge had 5 gals of spring water cans. Everything in the house was working properly. There are kayaks in the house, but we preferred to stay on beach.

We will certainly recommend this place, and we would certainly love to go here again.

Perfect Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Bethany Beach. This home had plenty of room for 3 families plus Grandma and Grandpa. We had 8 adults and 8 kids and were very comfortable here. The home is very clean. Kitchen, common area, and deck upstairs made for great mealtimes. The pool was perfect for afternoons and evenings after a day at the beach.

The location is also very convenient. Easy to get to the beach. Quick walk to Salt Pond dock for crabbing and kayaks.

1/4 mile on main road is a bike path that connects to a whole network of fun family trails for biking and hiking.

Salt Pond executive golf course is also just around the corner.

Bill and Rosemary are gracious hosts. They are on-site to assist with any problems and make your stay more pleasant, but they are never intrusive.

We will be back.

Great Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Great home to rent if you have a large family! The house is spacious, clean and best of all you get your very own pool. The beach was only minutes away. There are kayaks provided for you as well as a dock that you can walk to to go kayaking or crabbing. A great place with different activities for the whole family.

Great vacation, tons of wonderful memories!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks here and the owners were amazing! We were welcomed with a bottle of wine, kayaks at the ready and a list of great places to go along with coupons for kid friendly activities. The house was big enough to comfortably fit three families plus the kids and grandparents. We were able to enjoy the pool into the beautiful night hours and kayaked off the dock. Clean, relaxing, and kid friendly! We will be back next year.
