About barbara gilliss

We've been looking for a family friendly home with great beach access for 3 years. We love this house because it has a large great room with a cathedral ceiling. We love to play games, listen to music, make art, and cook. There are lots of places to play games, relax, and share in the cooking and meals as a family, or with a gathering of friends. The outdoor shower was a must for us! Middlesex Beach's private beach is just a 6 minute walk away. The beautiful wooded lots make it cozy, and family friendly. The neighborhood is great for walks, and biking . There is parking available to only our community right next to the beach. The travel time from Baltimore to the beach is less than 3 hours. We're excited to share our unique Middlesex Beach experience with you. It will bring you back again and again.

Why barbara gilliss chose Bethany Beach

We fell in love with this lot and house because it has a mountain cottage feel but is close to the beach which we love. We enjoy a leisurely 6 minute walk to our private beach or we have parking on the beach side if we want to drive. We like the single floor access and the large great room for entertaining family and friends. We love to cook so it is fun having the kitchen in the open space where everyone can be a part of the process, or relax and watch it all unfold. We love games so the open space makes for lots of room for everyone to be a part of things.

What makes this cottage unique

The wooded lot and community gives you that wonderful neighborhood feel surrounded by nature. There are lots of birds amongst the trees to watch as you sip your coffee on the screened porch or deck. Another morning you can wake up for sunrise and see the wonders of the ocean and sky. The paneled walls provide a warm and cozy space to relax in, or play games and hang out after a full day on the beach.

This home fit all of our needs as a family. The house itself was super clean, nicely decorated, and the large screened in porch tucked back was great. Easy walk even with my little ones to the beach and Mc Donalds at the end of the street didnt hurt. LOL

Plan to come back next summer if we visit the DE shore again. Thank you

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this beautiful beach house. We loved how the house was decorated. It was very spacious and we felt at home when we walked in the door. I don't think we have ever stayed in I house that was so well stocked!!

It even had a French Press!! The beach was great!! Not crowded at all! Short walk even with 4 little boys! Some days we would drive and parking right by the beach was great! My grandsons had a great time playing in the big back yard. We loved Middlesex Beach and 121 Evergreen!!

Peace and Fun

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time with my fiancee and some friends at this beautiful home. As soon as we walked in I felt comfortable and even had a tinge of nostalgia. It isn't often that we are able to all get away from the city (we all live in NYC) so we had high hopes for our trip and this place delivered. It's very close to the beach and we would wake up in the morning, make breakfast and relax in the huge open family room - I love that the kitchen is open so you can cook and be part of the conversation - and then walk to the beach. It wasn't the best weekend for catching sun so we'll be coming back in the summer to do just that! Despite not having the best weather, we still had a great time!

Middlesex enjoys a private beach exclusively used by the community. There's no overcrowding on the beach. Step out our front door and after a leisurely 6 minute walk you'll have your feet in the sand. Take advantage of beachside parking included in our rental package.
