Wonderful stay until it was time to leave!
My family has rented in Bethany Beach for the past 22 years and never have we been treated in such an accusatory manner. On check in day, we were told that for what ever reason the recycling had not come and cleared from the previous renters. We said that was no biggie and that we would make sure recycling got out when we were there our week. Because of this, the recycle can was over flowing and my mom mentioned that we’re were bottles and such in the trash cans numerous times. I will get back to this in a minute. While the owner showed us around the home, she mentioned that she was not having the greatest of days. My husband helped her with the stairs, carried her bags outside for her and my mother got her snacks in hopes to get her to feel better. We had a lovey stay during the week. No issues on our end. I sent the owner a text thanking her for a wonderful week and I was shocked at the response I got back. She first opened and told me how worried she was all week of the condition her home would be left in after she saw our big trucks pull into her driveway on Saturday! Ok, I brushed this one off. She then said how she and her handy man were so upset and were accusing us of having spit chewing tobacco all over her decks and walls in the game room. I assured her that was not us nor what the marks were. Her handy man was all but yelling at us accusing us otherwise saying he chewed tobacco and knows what that looks like. I told her all week her flower pots that she has irrigated leaked brown residue on the desks and she said that wasn’t what it was. Without any photographic evidence I told her that I was in Rehobeth and would be happy to drive back to see what they were talking about. She later changed her tone and said it was no big deal, she shouldn’t have said anything and that we were the best tenants she’s had! What?? The next day, I get another text with a photo of her and her husband going through our garbage saying that she has to sort through all of our recycling! Flashback from day 1 to recycling story and the previous renters. Those recyclables weren’t even ours!! She then took a picture of a bottle filled with cigarette butts from my father-in-law. Once again we were scolded for this. As per her rules-no smoking in house/on porches, my father-in-law smoked all week in the driveway. My family left her home in excellent condition and we were shocked at how this trip concluded. I have never been treated this way in all my life. Disappoint
I would like to submit my comments regarding the Kelly's family stay at our property. First of all, overall the house was left in good condition; however there were two issues that came to my attention. One being the recycling bin which was overflowing with both trash and recyclables and the other a black tar like substance found on various walls around the house, floor and deck. The latter, my property maintenance man said there was chewing of tobacco. The renter denied it and I did not charge him as it was able to be washed off without too much of a problem. As far as the recycling issue, the trash/recycling company did in fact come; though I was indeed concerned at first that they had not or might not have come. After Kelly and her family stayed, I noticed the recycling and trash had not been separated and so my husband and I separated out the obvious glass bottles and cans per Delaware recycling rules. We were not going through Kelly's trash to inspect it, rather to responsibly separate the recyclable products. As far as the smoking goes, there is no smoking allowed on our property and I had informed the tenants of this prior to their stay.
My post interactions with Kelly was most likely miscommunication and were not intended to offend or upset anyone.
Great Bethany Stay
Wonderful house. One block from the Ocean. Artfully decorated.
Third trip to Bethany. All lovely homes but this is the best one yet. Jocelyne (owner) is one of the nicest people you will meet. Extremely accommodating.
Thank you very much but it is a pleasure and very easy when you have a guest like you 👍😊
Beautiful home, wonderful for families! Couldn’t recommend it enough!!
This is a beautiful home for families with plenty to do from pool to ping pong to beach time to relaxing on the hammock with a good book. Less than a block to the beach and the house comes stocked with chairs and a wagon to haul stuff to and from the beach. The house is immaculately clean, beautifully kept, and well stocked, Jocelyne is amazing and such a fantastic host!!
Thank you so much it was very easy because you were amazing guests ! The house was impeccable was very easy to get it ready for the next traveler ! Looking forward to having you as our guest in the near future again thanks 👍�😋�
An impressive place to stay
We have just returned from an ideal vacation in Bethany Beach. The weather was gorgeous as was the home we rented. And it was a home, not a bare-bones rental that was well/over-used. The place was immaculate and fully stocked. Our family of nine, three grandkids under 16 had plenty of room to spread out and everyone could ‘do our own thing.’ The pool table immediately attracted the older kids competing with their parents. The proximity to the beach and all of the paraphernalia needed was at hand and a short walk away. No crossing US 1 and lifeguards on duty. In the morning elders gathered on the screened in porch for morning coffee; evenings were spent on the open porch listening to the waves and enjoying a glass of wine and good conversation and watching the hummingbirds feed. The dining room easily seated all of us not only for dinner but also for evening card games. The whole house was beautifully and thoughtfully decorated and our hostess did everything to make our stay very comfortable and satisfying.
Everyone said their bed was comfortable and all bedrooms had adjoining bathrooms.
It was agreed that, given our experience this year, we would like to return there again next year.
Thank you for the beautiful review !! It gives me so much pleasure to see that my guests enjoyed the house as much as I do!! And yes everything was absolutely an order .
Thank you and hope to see you again very soon
Perfect, quiet location with everything you would need!
June 2018- We had an excellent trip. If you want to be oceanside, this house has everything you would need for a relaxing beach vacation. It is close to both the Bethany boardwalk and Rehobeth area. Jocelyne is the sweeetest and very accomodating. We hope to be back next year!
The home is a wonderful combination of elegance and casual functionality. It works perfectly for all ages. The incredible convenience to the beach and the security for young people is unparalleled. The house is well-stocked-everything one could need. There are even lovely choices within the house for fun family dinners. The beach is a walk or bike ride away.
Private beach and private enclave with everything needed a short distance away.
A very special place.
Thank you so very much I really appreciate the review and most of all I'm glad that you were happy again thank you
