About Helen

We have vacationed in many different places and countries. If circumstances permit, we'd always choose to rent a private home instead of staying in a hotel. After spending some time in Bethany beach, we fell in love with its central location, the unique charm and its family friendliness. We hope to share our retreat with other families who will care for it as they would their own, and hope you will have all the fond memories for years to come.

Helen purchased this villa in 2014

Why Helen chose Delaware

The Bay Forest community offers resort living at its best! The amenities are world class. The people are friendly. The location is convenient yet less crowded. During summer season, the community offers shuttle bus service to/from the Bethany beach, so that you will not have to worry about fighting for a parking spot at the beach during busy days/times. Charming, relaxing and family oriented, Bethany and Bay Forest offer you the best vacation experience.

What makes this villa unique

We love the high quality construction of the homes in Bay Forest, the family feel and the quietness of this neighborhood. In addition, this end unit villa offers a great open floor plan (only available in certain newer models), natural sunlight, and plenty of indoor and outdoor space for family gathering, relaxation and enjoyment. The special features such as the arched entryways, hardwood floors and nearby community fire pit also make you feel living right at home while vacationing in a resort!

Beautiful Villa, Great for Families

  • 5 of 5

This Villa was great and accommodated our family of 8 which included our 2 grand kids. We never felt crowded and it was nice that each couple had their own room and bathroom. The Villa was well maintained and very clean.

The amenities in the home were top notch. The community pool was a highlight. There are grocery stores and restaurants near by. The beach at Bethany was an easy drive from the Villa. Helen and Blake were wonderful to work with. They were quick to respond and answer any questions we had. We loved our stay in the Villa and will be back again in the future.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Villa Belle Bethany! We were a family of nine, and this property had plenty of room to spread out and enjoy our time together. The pool complex was key to our vacation, and entertained us all for hours.

Helen was prompt in answering our questions and concerns, and the unit was very organized for our stay.

One suggestion- a small hand held vaccuum would have been wonderful for picking up the sand out of our cars and on area rugs....

Enjoyed our time at Bay Forest and look forward to returning some day!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your feedback, Megan! We will definitely be looking into adding a small hand vac going forward, in addition to the floor vacuum cleaner that we keep in the unit for the convenience of our guests. Look forward to welcoming your family back in the future!

Perfect Villa and Amenities

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home with all the amenities one would seek. Excellent furnishing, kitchen /cooking utensils, needs and so on. Nice space so no one felt crowded or lacked any privacy. Everything up to date and working, Enjoyed being able to grill on propane or charcoal. Tv's galore.

Bay Forest also is a beautiful area. The pool, basketball and tennis courts are very well kept and a knowledgeable staff. Shuttle service to the beach runs on time, Close enough driver ( half hour) to some of the best golf courses in the area.

Helen is very easy to work with; communicates well and timely and answers any questions. My only minor suggestion is to perhaps add a couple bikes as the area is perfect for easy rides.

Thanks for the suggestion for including bikes. We are in fact looking to add them in the near future. Thanks again for taking the time to give us feedback. We look forward to welcoming you back next year.

Fun, Relaxing, Spacious vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at this spacious house in Bay Forest. The house easily fit 4 kids and 4 adults with plenty of spare room and could have easily fit another family of four with room to spare. The short walk to the pool (which included 3 water slides and a lazy river) was ideal for the kids we had (aged 4-8). There is also a playground, bocce courts, horse shoes, volleyball and basketball courts. There are also plenty of paths to walk and a fire pit for smores at night. There was a large grass area behind the house to play.

It was a 10 minute drive to Bethany Beach and about 30 mins to Rehobeth which we didn't find too bad as it kept us away from the crowded areas. And as the kids enjoyed the pool so much - we spent post days at the pool and than over to the beaches in the evening.

The property was immaculate - clean, had all the necessary equipment and Helen emailed us on arrival asking if we were settled in and if we needed anything. House is also a short drive to 2 super markets to fill the house with food and a great fresh donut place (fractured prune) that is a must try at least one morning.

I would highly recommend staying here.

luxurious and enjoyable family vacation

  • 5 of 5

our family.....6 adults & 5 grandchildren enjoyed a memorable vacation in Ocean View, De.........the kitchen was very, very spacious, dining room was large enough for all of us to eat and the family rooms was very relaxing and spacious

Master Suite: unbelievable and luxurious......king size bed(very, very comfortable).......double sinks, soaking tub & large shower

closet was large enough to be another room!!!!!

3 Upstairs bedroom........beautifully decorated and very large bathrooms

Really comfortable loft on 2nd floor.........a video game room and/or play room for little ones

Condo is in a very quiet and friendly neighborhood and only 15 minutes from beach......it was our first time at Bethany....it is much cleaner than some of the

nearby beaches........perfect beach.........

Swimming pool, lazy river and sliding boards were a huge hit with our Grandkids and of course, we enjoyed watching them having a good time

All in all, I don't think we have ever stayed at a more perfect and luxurious vacation spot.........

The owner have thought about EVERY single detail you could possibly need to make your vacation relaxing and memorable!!!
