'We have stayed in lots of homes up and down the Eastern Shore. This one is by far the most lovely. Great open design and wonderful proximity to both the beach and boardwalk.' -- July 2007 Guest Comment

Beautiful, new, four bedroom, three and a half bath, single-family home, just a short walk to the beach, boardwalk, city playground, shops and public library. This beautiful home has three levels of living space and plenty of outside parking. Nestled in the trees, this home provides a quiet, peaceful vacation retreat, yet is only three blocks to the beach.


*Located on a private drive just off of Jefferson Bridge road 0.1 miles to the West of Rte. 1.

*Short, 10 minute walk to the beach or drive in just 1-2 minutes.

*Floor plan accommodates multiple families or couples.

First floor with master bedroom (King bed and full bath)

First floor sitting room and washer/dryer

Second level living area, consisting of an open floor plan, with a fully-equipped

kitchen, upgraded features including large island w/seating, quartz countertops, maple

cabinetry and brand new appliances (including a wine cooler).

*Enjoy family meals in the large dining room or in the private screened-in porch off the kitchen. After meals, spend quality time in the sunken great room off the kitchen or relax on the adjoining large deck.

*Three more bedrooms and a second washer and dryer on the third floor. The first bedroom has a set of twin bunk beds and a twin daybed with a pull-out twin bed; the middle bedroom has a Queen size bed, and the third bedroom is the second master bedroom, with a King size bed and a full bath. The bath has an oversized shower, with a rain showerhead and a second showerhead. And after your beach visits, don't forget about the air conditioned/heated 'outdoor shower' on the lower rear deck.

*Decks on every level in the front and back, providing 1,200 square feet of decking. This provides plenty of room for sunning or relaxing in the shade. There are plenty of quiet spaces to read a book, yet the decks are large enough to accommodate a group, as well as for family members and friends.

*Beach, local restaurants (including a crabhouse and the famous Cottage Cafe), a drugstore and gourmet coffee shop all just a short walk away. You can also walk to the Boardwalk or the City Playground to entertain the kids.

*Rehoboth, Dewey and Ocean City are all a short drive, offering nightlife, amusement rides in Ocean City and great outlet shopping in Rehoboth.

About Alaine Walsh

Originally from DE, we frequent the beach as much as possible!

Alaine Walsh purchased this house in 2006

Why Alaine Walsh chose Bethany Beach

We both frequented the DE beaches growing up, and when we married we decided we wanted to make it a family tradition of our own. We bought land in 2001, and built our home in 2006. We love the family-friendly nature of Bethany.

What makes this house unique

Our house is a short walk to the beach, less than 10 minutes! We also have convenience retail within walking distance. Forget something? Walk to the Walgreens or CVS! Need to stock the liquor cabinet for the week? Walk to the liquor store across the street. Hungry? Walk 5 minutes to Mickey's crab shack, the famous Cottage Cafe, Armand's, etc. just down the road. And of course, you can take a nice morning walk to get your coffee, too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful family reunion in your home. It is a beautiful home and well furnished and made our stay very comfortable. Thank you for sharing it with us.

We Keep Going Back!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a private location but is in walking distance to the beach. There is plenty of room for parking. The sleeping accommodations are well thought out - four single beds and three large beds. We love all the porches that allow for some privacy or just a quiet place to read. The open living/kitchen area is appreciated. We also utilize the large outside table where we enjoy our morning coffee together. Our family keeps growing (infants to senior citizens) and every year we all vote to return to the same house.

Great Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our FIRST family vacation with our grown married children! So hard to choose a place w.o seeing it first…did plenty of praying…and this home met ALL of our expectations! The location just a few blocks from the beach put us "off the beaten path" yet close enough to everything, including the lovely town which was full of shops! The home accommodated us and our 3 children, 2 spouses, and 4 grandchildren! SPACIOUS, clean, lovely porches/decks/sunroom, plus odds n ends of spices, cleaning products, etc….the kitchen was wonderfully stocked!!!! All this to say, we were ALL thrilled with my choice of homes! Our week stay was full of great memories! Thank you!
