Sussex Shores Seaview Townhouse (Ocean Block w/ Private Beach) - Walk to town!

Bedrooms 4
Space 1,300 sq. ft.
Property type townhome
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

End unit town house with 3 bedrooms + loft, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 9 in beds

Our Seaview town house (Unit #1) is spacious 3-story townhouse located in Sussex Shores which is the first private community north of Fifth Street and the Town of Bethany Beach. It is within walking or biking distance to town, shopping, and restaurants (less than half mile from town center). Sussex Shores is a quiet, family-oriented community with a private beach, private roads, and off-street parking.

Access to the community and beach is controlled by private security. Because it is a private beach, it is never crowded and has a staff of full-time lifeguards from mid-June through mid September. Once you stay in Sussex Shores, you will forever be spoiled and will never want to return to a crowded public beach!!

The town house is located 75 yards from the dunes and is a 3-story design! The Master Bedroom (Bedroom #1) has a queen bed with full bath en suite. Bedroom #2 has a queen bed. Bedroom #3 has two twin beds. The 3rd floor loft (Bedroom #4) has three twin beds. Three bedrooms are located on the first floor of the townhouse, as well as the laundry area and two full baths. The second level has the living room, kitchen, dining room and full bath. The third level offers an upstairs sleeping area with three twin beds. All three levels have accessible outside decks. In addition, there is an excellent outdoor shower with changing area on the ground floor level!

In addition to the listed amenities, we provide beach chairs for the beach. Weekly Rentals are Friday to Friday, thus avoiding weekend traffic snarls! Maid service (at the conclusion of your visit) is included in the rental fee, as well as the Sussex Shores Beach Association Rental Assessment. See my "Virtual Tour" link listed below, just above the Photos Section.

If your vacation plans require a 2nd home for family and friends, please visit my listing for The Gosling, also in Sussex Shores (a 2 minute walk) that sleeps 10 at vrbo 52215.

If you would like to rent towels, linens and other vacation supplies during your visit instead of bringing your own, Coastal Rentals (Millville, DE) offers a variety of choices. Contact Joe Garner at 302-539-5211. Likewise, the Bethany Bike Shop (302-537-9058) is conveniently located at 900 Pennsylvania Avenue and offers a full compliment of rental bikes for adults and children. Ask for Joe or George.

Wonderful Vacation in Bethany Beach !!!

  • 5 of 5

Once again (we stayed last year too) a wonderful vacation in Bethany Beach. This house is wonderful and we can't say enough about it. Great location and everything inside and out of this place is amazing. If you have kids or young adults don't miss this house. Private beach is only a few steps away from the public beach, but it's a HUGE difference (great beach). If this house is available, don't pass it by. My parents loved the back deck to hang with the family and it's a very short walk into Bethany each night for the boardwalk or one of the fine restaurants. We will be back next year if everything works out. Can't wait !!!

Great house; great location.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time together as a family in this beautiful home. We were concerned for my in-laws who have a hard time traveling far to get to the beach. They had no problems; the ocean is a close walk on very private roads to get to a quiet beach which we could enjoy together. The home was clean, nicely furnished and well kept with great decks. When we had a small problem with the refrigerator, it was taken care of immediately by the owner. Bethany Beach is a great place for a family vacation and this home worked out perfectly for our family of 9.

Perfect Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house is spacious, well designed, well appointed, and well equipped to make your vacation easy and hassle free. It is an end unit with plenty of light which makes the experience of being inside much more pleasant than an internal unit. The standard real estate recommendation re: "location, location, location" really applies here. It is one block from the beach and only a modest length walk to town.

As other reviews have stated, the owner is very organized and provides all the information you need to access entry easily when you arrive, to enjoy your stay, and to secure the house easily when you are not present or depart at the end of your stay.

Best Vacation Rental Unit in the Area

  • 5 of 5

I have been taking my family to Bethany Beach since 1995 and have stayed in multiple places. This was the BEST place we have ever rented. Beautifully decorated, very spacious and the private beach was AMAZING !!! Everything was perfect, from the communication with the owner to all the extras this house provides (beach umbrella, multiple beach chairs, etc...). The key-less front door was very helpful in that we did not have to worry about loosing keys or making sure everyone had one.

The bedrooms were perfect with very nice beds. The 3 decks were a big hit with the family for book reading or the main deck for happy hour and meals. The kitchen was very large and stocked with everything we needed.

The living room with big screen TV was very nice for watching preseason football and was very large for lounging around is case you had a rainy day (which we did not for our week). We had 8 or 9 people sleep here throughout the week and everyone had plenty of space. Also the outside shower was AMAZING.

Very short walk to all the action in downtown Bethany made it even nicer that we didn't have to use the car all week. Also Bethany offers a 25 cent trolley that drops you off right across the street if walking is an issue.

If you are looking for a perfect vacation rental in the hidden gem of Bethany Beach, look no further then this fantastic home. One note, my wife is not the biggest beach person and she said she wants to rent this place again next week, since we had such a fantastic time.

Fabulous Beach Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

9 of us stayed at this fantastic, spacious beach townhouse. Just a short walk to the beach and to town. The place was well equipped, including beach chairs and an outdoor shower. The owner was very responsive and a pleasure to work with. We will be back!

Perfect Home Away From Home

We recently rented here for 2 weeks. The townhouse is spacious, bright, and well equipped. It was in pristine condition upon our arrival. We highly recommend staying here for an enjoyable vacation close to the beach and town.
