This beautiful new home features a great open floor plan, first floor owner’s suite, morning room overlooking Collin’s Creek, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and gorgeous hardwood floors as well as many other upgrades throughout. Not to mention it is located in the most premier location and one of only eight waterfront homes in the entire community!!

As a former teacher and beach lifeguard in Bethany Beach, we have dreamed of returning to this area with our two young children and owning a vacation home of our own. There truly isn’t a better vacation destination than Bethany Beach, Delaware. In fact, “Travel and Leisure” magazine has named it as one of the “Best Secret Beaches on Earth”.

We are doing a Friday- Friday rental to help our renters avoid the major traffic delays during the Saturday changeover and allow you an entire weekend rather than coming in on a Sat afternoon. All furnishings including beds and mattresses are brand new and are of top quality. Each bedroom includes a mattress cover, pillows, and a comforter. You are responsible for bringing your sheets and towels and are welcome to use the laundry room.

The first floor plan includes a gourmet kitchen, dining room, spacious airy great room with a gas fireplace, entertainment center, 55” TV, and a relaxing morning room with amazing wetland views and tons of natural light. There is also a large deck with a gas grill and outdoor seating that will offer you breathtaking views of the sunset and wildlife. Enjoy the views of the bay while you sip a cocktail, share a meal, or listen to the many sounds of summer. There is a second porch on the front of the house with relaxing chairs and a place to watch the kids play or just read a book.

The king master bedroom is on the first floor and has a walk in closet and master bath with double vanities, granite counter tops, and a tiled walk in shower with bench. The laundry room is off of the kitchen and features a full size washer and dryer and allows access to the garage for easy cleaning. There is also a ½ bath on the first floor as you enter the front door.

The second floor has three bedrooms and one full bath. The first bedroom has a queen bed. The second bedroom has a set of bunk beds which are a full on bottom and a twin on top, and the third bedroom has a queen sleeper sofa and a day bed with two twins. This bedroom has an entertainment center with a 50” TV and Blue Ray DVD player. In addition there is a loft at the top of the stairs to provide you a place to let the kids play, stretch out and relax, or play a game. We have a small supply of games, books, and puzzles for you to enjoy.

Bay Forest Resort is absolutely the best community to enjoy all the attractions and beach living at its’ finest without all the traffic and crowds.

Loved your home. Thanks for a great get away weekend

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Kelley you have a beautiful home. I loved the time I got to spend with my grand children. Our favorite time was movie night with grandma. I spent 3 nights on the sleeper sofa with 2 of my grandchildren and 2 other grandchildren slept on the twin trundle beds. We all would watch movies and cuddle till bed time. I hope their time with me was as special to them as it was to me. My daughters and son in laws had a great time playing games downstairs while 4 out of 5 kids were upstairs with grandma. The baby stayed downstairs with his parents. Hope my husband gets to come next time. The weather could have been a little warmer, but there's always next time. Thanks again for opening your home to our family. It was a great weekend.

The house and development were the perfect family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

I don't normally provide comments but feel I must. My family and I had an amazing time. The memories here will be cherished forever. First of all the house is amazing. From the 5 star luxury beds down to each decoration- Much detail and thought was put into making this home a perfect family experience. While the kids loved the TV's, my favorite was the Weber gas grill. Steve and Kelley Mitchell put the wow factor in this house. They are also very nice and respond quickly with any questions. No matter how silly the question.

This home alone is the perfect place to relax after a long day at the beach, but the pool is the added feature. This was the best part of the vacation for my kids. Even though we love the beach, my kids found the pool as their new favorite. It's more than just a pool. The lazy river, water slides, water basketball and volleyball were a hit. There is also pool side restaurant to order lunch and snacks throughout the day.

This house and place is a must for any family vacation. I know we will be back for sure!

Lovely home in a wonderful and convenient setting.

  • 5 of 5

The Bay Forest home made a perfect backdrop for our beach break. The house is truly lovely, well laid out and extremely comfortable. We were especially impressed with the good quality of kitchen items and the comfort of all the sitting areas and bedrooms. Having access to the pool and exercise facility in Bay Forest was great too. Nice view from the back deck and having the grill was an extra bonus. We had a toddler with us who loved all the beach play stuff. Kelley and Steve have really have taken time to think through what anyone might need and made it available. What else can I say except that we miss it all ready!!

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

My family (husband, 8yr old daughter, twin 20mo toddlers, mother, and mother and father-in-law) stayed in Kelley and Steve's beautiful home for two weeks in August and LOVED it! I can't say enough positive things about the house and about the owners' graciousness and thoughtfulness.

First of all, the pictures don't do the place justice! It is so incredibly spacious and beautifully decorated. Everything seemed to be good quality as well: lots of good, comfy pillows, great mattresses, good-quality kitchen utensils and appliances, wonderful outdoor furniture and grill, etc.

There were bicycles and lots and lots of toys! My kids loved it. We actually may have loved the bikes the best. One had a trailer attached to it so we biked prettying everyday to the pool with the twins in the back. We rented an additional bike for my 8yr old from Bethany Bike Rentals.

We took the shuttle once to the beach but found it easier to drive as parking never seemed to be an issue.

Steve and Kelley were the best owners and always responded to my many emails and texts right away and were always very helpful.

We highly recommend this place!!

Beautiful Comfy Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our week vacationing in this beautiful new beach house ! We enjoyed sitting on the large deck with it's peaceful surroundings, sipping our coffee and just "catching up". The house came with everything needed for fun at the beach; sandchairs,bikes and a kitchen fully stocked with kitchenware. I liked how it was decorated "Beach Casual"-so pretty...and plenty of room for all 8 of us! We especially enjoyed the amenities;the lazy river and fitness center,and the shuttle to the beach-all included! Thanks again to the owners Steve and Kelley for sharing their home. We hope to stay again soon!
