About the property

Cozy getaway, 100 steps to the ocean in beautiful Bethany Beach

A mere 100 steps from the ocean, located in a private beach community, you will find the Green Dolphin (Unit 2) a true escape with a spacious deck perfect for enjoying your morning coffee or an evening meal. Inside you will find a cozy atmosphere where you can enjoy time with your family playing games or watching cable television. There are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with two twin beds; also a pull-out queen sofa bed in the family room. The kitchen has brand new stainless steel appliances, fully stocked with cooking ware and a table for six. This home is conveniently located off Rt. 1 in Tower Shores, just a few houses up from Matt’s Camp, a very popular seafood restaurant.

The Tower Shores location offers quick access to downtown Bethany, Rehoboth, Dewey or Ocean City. A state park is located on the north side and adjacent to our beach which allows vehicles to drive on the beach and surf fishing. The access to the bay side is only 5 minutes north off of Rt. 1 for kayaking, canoeing, or sail boat launching. The perfect get-away for the whole family.

Right Place at the Right Time.

  • 4 of 5

We had a tremendous time and the weather was perfect. This rental fit our purposes very well. We really enjoyed how close it was to the private beach and the short drive to other amenities in Bethany and Rehoboth. Amy was very professional and a pleasure to deal with as she was very timely and accommodating. We go to a different beach every year and this was one of the more relaxing destinations we've been to.

Our vacation was cancelled by the owner

  • 1 of 5

I don't like writing a negative review, but I also don't want anyone to go through what happened with our vacation. We booked our annual family vacation at North Bethany 7 months before our arrival. We always stay in the wonderful Green Dolphin, which we love, but never in this particular condo. (There are 4 condos in the building, and we have always had wonderful experiences in our stays in the other condos.) We paid the full amount for the week and had a signed contract along with the owner, Amy. She called us 6 days before our vacation and said she was sorry but had that she had made an error, saying that the dates were not available and suggested we come on other dates. Amy told me her "husband said that the signed contract was not worth anything." Of course, we had already taken the time off work for the dates we had paid for in December, and we couldn't come on other dates she offered. She then cancelled our vacation. This was very upsetting to my family, because, like most people, we had looked forward to our vacation all year. If you rent from Amy, make sure she checks the dates. I noticed that she now specifies this on the listing, but when we booked in December, she had us coming from Sunday to Sunday because that was the way the calendar was set up. Mistakes happen for all of us, but this one by the owner resulted in a big loss for our family. As for the Green Dolphin, it's a wonderful building, close to the ocean, with a clean, private beach that is very quiet. Note that there is no lifeguard at the beach. Matt's Fish Camp Restaurant down the street is convenient and delicious.

Owner's Response: I only rent my place from Saturday to Saturday, but somehow the VRBO system allowed me to book Raine from Sunday to Sunday, maybe due to the fact that she booked in December 2015 the system wasn’t set up right for 2016 yet. I tried to reason with her to explain the situation (my place is not available from Sunday to Sunday) and give her viable alternatives (discount for the inconvenience for Saturday to Saturday rental or full refund). At one point she said she could rent from Saturday to Saturday, but while I was preparing the new lease she called back a second time to threaten lawsuit demanding Sunday to Sunday rental. At this point I decided it would be better for her to rent another unit. Unbelievably, she called back a third time again agreeing to Saturday to Saturday rental. I then refunded all her money and I’m sure she was able to find another place in the same community because there were a lot of vacancies that time of year. I feel I did the right thing for Raine and me. I can tell she wouldn’t have been happy if she had rented my place.

Great Location & Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to getaway for a long weekend with our young kids before the Spring/Summer busy season and we had a wonderful stay. It is a short block away from a private beach with great views and a short drive from lots of restaurants and shopping. The place was clean and well maintained. It was easy to prepare simple meals in the kitchen. The owner was quick to respond to emails - the WiFi was down when we first arrived but she was excellent at staying in constant communication and ensuring that it was up as soon as possible. We would stay here again. Highly recommend!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this beach condo! It was so close to a private and quiet beach, and a very quick drive to the Bethany Boardwalk. All of the neighbors were incredibly friendly, we will be back!

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo and the one next to it which worked out great for a family of 6 plus 2 grandparents. The condo was clean and in good condition and you can't beat the short stroll to the beautiful private beach! It is located in a quiet area but is an easy drive from the towns of Bethany, Dewey and Rehobeth. The walkway to the beach has been updated with a ramp so even my kids could pull our rolling cart of gear right onto the sand. The owners were wonderful to work with and VRBO made the whole process easy!!

A great place to relax by the beach. We had a lot of fun and everything was very nice, in good condition, and very well maintained. The owner was very helpful and easy to work with. The private beach was extra special. Overall a great experience!
