About Anna and Blair Fernau
We are a family of four who enjoy this relaxing place by the beach with a great location that provides lasting summer memories for our kids. We loved the small beach cottage but it wasn't big enough to accommodate friends and extended family. That is why we built the new house. The location in downtown Bethany is perfect for our family and yours! We specifically wanted a place that we knew our children would enjoy and where we could feel safe allowing them to walk to the boardwalk and watch a movie on the beach or get an ice cream cone. They love building sand castles on the beach!
Anna and Blair Fernau purchased this House in 2015
Why Anna and Blair Fernau chose Bethany Beach
The location of this house is it's best feature -- just one a half blocks from the beach and 1 block to downtown. There is parking for five standard cars in front, in the garage and behind the house. Bright, colorful and casual. This is beach relaxing at its best.

Looking forward to returning
The big easy is one of the nicest houses we have stayed in. It’s beautifully decorated, very clean and neat and nicely situated just a few blocks from the beach and walking distance from shops
and restaurants. The kitchen has most everything you will need. The owners will let you know which items you have to supply yourself like sheets ( can rent from linen company although we did not) , bath towels, paper towels, toilet paper, soap/shampoo for showers, and the list goes on however a quick run to the store will take care of that or bring with you. There are markets within a two mile radius. If you go in the summer which we did not and have a group you will need beach chairs as well. Our three kids enjoyed being on one level of the home and used the teen lounge to watch tv and hang out. The elevator was handy for getting our luggage, groceries and even shopping bags transported upstairs. The communication with Anna was easy and we got quick responses to questions. The house is across from a fire house but that was no problem at all. The big easy is tucked in a nice beach neighborhood and we walked almost everywhere. Since we were there over Easter I can’t comment on the crowds at Bethany or any beach recommendations but we did enjoy the boardwalk (fried pickles, candy shop, etc) and the beach (we brought lax sticks, spike ball and some good books) which were all in full swing over the holiday weekend. Seemed like some
businesses closed down as the week started. We hope to get back soon!
A Blissful Break at The Big Easy!
The house was absolutely beautiful!! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook for a large group and we loved the open concept between the kitchen, living, and dining areas. The furniture was comfortable and there was enough seating for everyone to enjoy meals and group games together. The bedrooms were nicely furnished and the beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were spacious, including the 2 outdoor showers, and a couple were designed for multiple people to use at the same time. The elevator was extremely convenient for getting luggage and groceries up to the third floor. We even loved the set up in the garage. We enjoyed the ping pong table and we were able to park our cars outside so we used the long garage as our CanJam court! The weather was perfect all week, but if it had rained there would have been plenty of room to still enjoy the day together. Fun was had by all and we hope to return again next year!
Comfortable and open
Lots of space for a large family. Open feel and nice touches. We enjoyed our vacation and would recommend to others.
Need more stars!
This was an absolutely wonderful experience. Great place for a family reunion. We ranged in age from 4 to 64, and everyone loved it. The house is beautiful, well-stocked, and clean. We were close to the beach,and to town, but, it was very quiet. The owners responded quickly to any questions. 4 of us traveled from Scottsdale, AZ. We usually go to LaJolla, but, the rest of the crew was from PA, so, we decided on Bethany Beach and were not disappointed. Just a wonderful time in a wonderful location. Thank you for thinking of everything.
Beautiful, well decorated home!
The house is lovely, well stocked and beautifully decorated. The living and dining areas easily accommodate a large family and there is plenty of parking. We have booked again for the summer as you don't find many houses like this one to rent in Bethany!
This is a great home and it was perfect for our large family gathering. The house is comfortable, beautifully decorated, and well provisioned for a large group. The house is in a convenient location and we could easily walk to the beach or shops and boardwalk.
The house is just yards from the Farmer's Market which is held every Sunday in the summer. It is a block from the shopping district and great restaurants and a block and a half from the Boardwalk where you can enjoy concerts, movies on the beach and sunrise yoga. Below are some weblinks for fun things to do in Bethany. Make sure to check the Freeman Stage schedule for movies and concerts on the boardwalk that happen regularly in the summer. You can also call 302-539-5484 to get the bandstand schedule and other boardwalk event listings.
