Tiny Cottage Relaxing Life

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the tiny cottage for a week in July and fell in love with it and the area. We enjoyed the short walk to the private beach area where the Indian River was as warm as bath water and very clear. The cottage is adorable and very comfortable. We had privacy and enjoyed a relaxing week together. I highly recommend the cottage for couples or couples with a few younger children who can climb to the loft to sleep! We also enjoyed the short ride to Bethany Beach when we wanted to get in some ocean "beach" time. We never had difficulty parking although it is metered so expect to pay upwards of $12 - 15 for the day.

We would love to return to the cottage in the future. Thank you for everything!!!

Cute, classy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this cottage! We spent most of our days on the immaculate Bethany Beach (about 15 minutes down the road). In the evening we would often pop down to the sandy bay beach at the end of the road. The cottage comes well equipped; we made nearly all of our meals there. It has a little porch and hammock swing for two that are perfect for watching the sunset. So relaxing! Also, there is a deck with a grill and picnic table.

The owner was friendly and responsive.

I highly recommend!

Great quiet convenient unique location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved paddle boarding and line crabbing in the bay. The owner- family were gracious and very accommodating. It is an easy drive to the ocean beaches!

The cottage is quaint, well-appointed and one of the cleanest properties I have ever stayed in and I have stayed in a number.

The swing is delightful and of grown up dimensions!! Lovely place for morning coffee.

Quaint Cottage & Convenience

  • 5 of 5

We (my Mom, daughter and myself) rented the cottage for our girl's get-away to Bethany Beach. The owner is very friendly, responsive and accommodating. She made sure we had all that we needed for a relaxing stay and was flexible, in working with our travel times.

The cottage is adorable! Not only was it super clean, but it is beautifully decorated (I took photos of the interior so I could do a similar style in my home!) and located on a peaceful marina.

The drive into Bethany was a short, straight shot and virtually traffic free, plus there are many conveniences en route in the event you need to grab water, sunscreen, (or doughnuts) on your way to the beach!

I would fully recommend the Waterfront Cottage for those who want the convenience of the beach without the crowds. We relaxed on the hammock swing and drank coffee in the morning before heading off the the beach and enjoyed the quiet of the marina when we returned home, in the evening. A very quaint and romantic vacation accommodation.
