About Toni Bicknell

My family has been coming to the Bethany Beach area for over 30 years and we love it. Now, our grandchildren join us as well.

Toni Bicknell purchased this condo in 2012

Why Toni Bicknell chose Delaware

We rented in Bethany Bay for the past 5 years and love the combination of the quiet, peaceful resort but being close to everything. Every time we have stayed here, we have loved it more, so decided to buy our own home here. It is very safe and very family oriented. I love getting up in the morning and enjoying a cup of coffee sitting on the deck and watching the sunrise over the bay. In the winter, we sit on the enclosed sun porch for the same view. In the evening, there are beautiful sunsets that can be seen from the living room. It gets harder to leave every time we visit.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is right off of the circle and is a short walk to the pool and fitness center and also to the boat launch. But it still is very quiet and relaxing. We keep bicycles and sporting equipment in the garage and are happy to share them with anyone who stays.

Beautiful condo and neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property in April 2017. It was very clean, spacious, and filled with natural light. Toni was easy to reach and very helpful whenever we had questions. The neighborhood was nice and clean and everyone very friendly. Easy to get to Bethany & Rehoboth beaches. Would love to visit again in the summer!

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

Staying here was like being at home. We lacked nothing. It was bright, clean and roomy. You had a view of the bay from the kitchen window. There was plenty to do and the walking trail was great. We got plenty of exercise. I would stay here again. Toni was great. She was timely with her responses whenever we had a question. This is my first time using Homeaway/VRBO and am very impressed. We have been coming to this area (Ocean City, MD/Delaware) for years and always used CBvacations.com. But we were noticing that the condo's that were available were not being kept up to our standards. So we decided to try another website and are very happy we did.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! Glad you enjoyed your stay. Also, thank you for picking up that screen that blew off in the storm and putting inside. My husband was able to get it fixed and re-attached! Was great having you and you are welcome back any time!

Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

Very nice unit! Comfortable and spacious. Close to stores and restaurants. If you have problems with stairs - this is not for you.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay! You are correct that the flight of stairs could be difficult for some--I had a hip replacement myself and was challenged by them in that first month. I double-checked to make sure that my property description stated that it is a second floor unit, and it does say that. The picture shows what the stairs look like, so I hope people take that into consideration when choosing my vacation home. Thanks for the input and hope to have you back!

This well cared for home has it all!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for a ladies get away. We each had our own comfortable bedroom. Unfortunately the weather was damp, but our spirits were not as we thoroughly enjoyed staying here. Toni is exceptional in stocking this home and in communication. We will definitely recommend to friends and family.

Everything we'd hoped for!!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was everything we had hoped for and more. The owners anticipated everything

we possibly could have needed. The rooms were furnished beautifully and the community

is fabulous for adults as well as children of all ages. Loved golfing in the morning, hitting

the beach during the day and wrapping up at the pool. Can't wait to stay here again next year.

Map

Just one building away, there are some benches with beautiful views of the bay and you can see the Indian River bridge. On July 4th, we stay there and can watch the fireworks up and down the coast from Dewey Beach, thru Bethany and some further south. The kayak launch is just a short distance away. You can go crabbing from the dock there.

Bethany Beach is a short 3 mile drive away but the traffic gets very heavy on weekends in the summer. We avoid the beach area on the weekend and plan to stay at the pool those days.

The Delaware Seashore State parks are nearby. We usually drive north 4 or 5 miles along the coast to go to those. One is dedicated to driving on the beach and surf fishing. Or, you can drive south from Bethany and go to the State beach there. Both still have some of the World War II towers.

Bethany Beach boardwalk is small and has no amusement rides but has some great activities such as weekly bands playing and movies on the beach.

For the 'big' boardwalk experience, drive south about 10 miles to Ocean City, MD. Beware of high traffic in summer. Or you can drive north about 10 miles and go to the boardwalk at Rehoboth.
