Great Beach Cottage
We had a great week in North Bethany! House is as described and was perfect for what we wanted: basic comforts of home and close to the beach. Owners have updated the property and have every convenience of beach living. Just don't expect fancy and plush. What you can expect is a very thoughtful and attentive owner who is easy to get in touch with from the time you book your stay through the time you depart. Community of residents at Tower Shores were friendly and courteous on the beach. At the risk of not being able to re-book, I definitely recommend!
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay, Cheryl. We take great pride in prompt communications, beginning with the initial inquiry and continuing all throughout our guests' stay. We sure do hope you will join our growing list of repeat vacationers!
Simple comfy quaint cottage by the beach
Cottage was exactly as advertised- nothing fancy but worked just fine for my family of four. So glad we chose this rather than house in downtown Bethany or Rehoboth. Beach was so much less crowded and only a few steps away. Everything was in great working order and window units kept us plenty cool. Don’t forget to bring your own sheets and towels!
Home away from Home
Let me start off by saying Trudy is absolutely Amazing. After Trudy found out my child was a 4 yr old they purposely took toys and puzzles of theirs to the cabin. Super Nice. She really goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is comfy. I have 0 complaints about our stay. Being houses away from a private beach and listening to the ocean waves at night was quite the treat. As mentioned, if you're looking for a high end home, this is not for you but has all basic needs and is clean. I personally always bring my own linens so that being a requirement was not an issue for us. Enjoy yourselves at a reasonable priced location with a super short walk to the beach.
Thank you for your review, and we do hope you will consider another visit here in 2018!
There were a few things that were not good
Very uncomfortable - very small bathroom and the very uncomfortable futons in the living room. The air conditioning units were filled with mold - leaving the rooms with a very unfavorable odor. The outdoor vegetation was overgrown - ungroomed making it very hard to walk in the driveway. The floor in the dining area was off balance meaning you felt like you were walking down hill in that area of the house. The house did have a nice kitchen and the bedrooms were a good size.
We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay, Debra, and we thank you for sharing your concerns with us. The bathroom, while adequate yet not spacious, will have the privacy wall (near the entryway) cut back a foot or so to allow more clearance. We apologize for the a/c mold, we were unaware that the units hadn't been checked prior to your arrival (as they were supposed to be); a call, text or email would have had this problem corrected within hours. The one bush next to the driveway has been cut back, and several people have been unable to detect any flooring balance problem. We also regret the boat parking did not work out as planned.
Very nice location and property owner
Only fault is that the house is not central air, window units needs to be updated. Everything else was just fabulous, will stay again
Thank you for your review, and we are happy you enjoyed your stay! If you come back this season, you will hopefully enjoy the 2 new air conditioning units; this summer all 4 of them will have quiet, temperature-control features, which should help improve guest comfort. :)
Old fashioned charm by the sea
We chose this little cottage because it reminded us of the old days in Ocean City before everything grew up. It did not disappoint in that respect. It is in a lovely area convenient to Ocean City or Rehoboth. The beach was an easy walk and family oriented. People were very friendly. It certainly was nice to have beach chairs and umbrellas to use. We enjoyed the screened in porches and the outside shower. The house was clean and had everything we needed. The only room for improvement would be if the mattresses were a bit firmer. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay very much. Thanks for the memories!
Hi Donna -
We thank you for taking the time to review our little cottage by the sea, and we are happy you enjoyed your stay!
Conveniently nestled between Rehoboth Beach, Delaware and Ocean City, Maryland is "The Quiet Resort" town of Bethany Beach. This beach home is located in the private, family oriented, ocean-side community of Tower Shores, approximately 3 miles north of downtown Bethany. Lounge the day away on our clean beach (with a very good water quality ranking), while enjoying a cold treat from the SnoBall truck; then be sure to check out our neighborhood seafood restaurant, Matt's Fish Camp. And don't forget Delaware's tax-free shopping!
