About Anne Looney

We have raised our kids here in our time away from home, from the ages of 4 and 5, now 16 and 17. We both grew up in the Annapolis-Washington DC area and visited the beach every summer. We are so happy to be able to visit in the summer, fall, winter, and spring. Downtime, active time, time with family, friends, and dogs, all are suited to this very special vacation home. We hope you love it too!

Anne Looney purchased this house in 2005

Why Anne Looney chose South Bethany Harbor

For over ten years we have spent relaxing time here in all the different seasons. Summer is fantastic for all the outdoor activities; winter is cozy; spring is filled with new life in flora and fauna. Fall is the hidden gem of the area. Quiet, serene, but still full of activities and dining options, the beauty of the area shines through. There are plenty of festivals to attend throughout the coast, plus kayaking, biking, walking, resting, cooking, socializing, and enjoying time away. We just love biking to local restaurants, the beach, on errands, into the town of Bethany, or just to ride along Route 1. Jogging is a cinch with the flat terrain. Nature watching, surf riding, sitting on the beach in one of our beach chairs with a book. Staying late at the beach with a picnic dinner and some beverages. Nearby are modest but really fun amusement parks, water parks, shopping, fine and casual dining, parasailing, and more! Yet we also love to just relax at home, where it's possible to be inside and feel like we are outside, with all the water views.

What makes this house unique

We are located right on the canal, great for watching boats go by, for bringing your own boat, or using our kayaks. We have a ramp for loading your boat into the canal (shallow, so no deep-keeled boats) and a dock to tie it up. Or try out our kayaks, rent a paddle board, boat, or jet ski. Either way, the canal is at your doorstep, and you can travel through the canal and out to the bay for some breathtaking scenery and bird watching. This is a fantastic, often unknown feature of this area, and one of our absolute favorites!

AS DESCRIBED !!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were all so happy as we pulled up to our rental property. The location was beautiful and everything was just as promised. The neighborhood was quiet and so nice to sit and watch the boats go by. We took out the kayaks, rode the bicycles and just relaxed. !!!!! No traffic noise as it is the last house on the block. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for Thanksgiving and had a great time. The house was clean, the kitchen well-stocked and the neighborhood was quiet. We loved being on the canal and only 2 blocks from the beach. There were only 5 of us plus dogs, which was perfect.

Very relaxing location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 - 2 adults, 2 kids plus dog, stayed here for a long weekend over spring break. The house is very comfortable and has everything you need. We've never stayed in this area of Bethany before and found it very relaxing. We enjoyed staying on the canals and using the kayaks. I wish we could've stayed longer. The owner was a pleasure to work with. Thanks for sharing your house with us!

Great for our family and our black lab!

  • 5 of 5

This clean, well equipped four bedroom 2 bath home has the perfect location! The pictures underestimate the beautiful views as half the home is surrounded by the canals. We were able to take the kayaks provided by the owner in the canals. There are plenty of other places to kayak as well. We loved sitting on the deck watching colorful sunsets. It's literally a one minute drive to the quiet South Bethanny beaches. Beach chairs, beach towels and parking permits were all provided by the homeowner who was so easy to work with. We brought our black lab who enjoyed swimming in the bay. Thank you Anne Looney for sharing your home with us!
