About Beryle Alexis

I like to find treasures of all kinds. I especially get a kick out of creating something really cool and useful out of something the average person couldn't see the beauty or value in. I like to support small businesses and enjoy unique or different people and things. For many years my family and I vacationed with four other families to the same beach house each summer. We did this to the point that it seemed like it was our own beach house. During our week stay each family would take a night to cook and we ate out on the other two nights of the week. This provided for quality time and meals, while making the vacation affordable for the average family. When we had the opportunity to invest in a rental property we imagined a large beach house where families could do the same. When we found this property we knew immediately that the treasure hunt was over!

Beryle Alexis purchased this house in 2011

Why Beryle Alexis chose Delaware

Unique home nestled in a serene beach community. The property in is located in a quiet residential neighborhood about two and a half miles from the bustling Bethany Beach boardwalk attractions. We wanted to buy in Bethany Beach because it is family beach community with all the perks of a boardwalk. It's also ideally located between the larger beaches of Rehoboth and Ocean City for more commercial businesses, outlet shopping and night life. We looked at many houses, but when we saw this home, we immediately knew it was the one. It was custom built and the design is not the usual. The most unique featured is a ballroom sized family room where we imagined yoga or karate classes could take place. The back yard is a beautifully landscaped private courtyard equipped with a playground set. The large deck on the side of the house has a large hot tub and overlooks a scenic pond with a fountain. In addition to the large family room, there is a huge dorm room addition to the main house. We imagined it being housed by large groups of children...with the feel of a sleep away camp or an enormous slumber party. The house has plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. But more importantly it has plenty of entertainment spaces to hang out without feeling crowded. The three family rooms, the dining room, front porch, deck and courtyard and the large country style kitchen has an abundance of space to interact or to enjoy some alone time. What excited us about this property was the unusual design, the pond and the quiet neighborhood. It is our hope that families can visit our vacation home and leave with feelings of renewed energy, intimacy and strength when returning home.

What makes this house unique

This house is truly unique layout. There are so many perks but we each have our personal favorites about the house. I love the quiet mornings with my coffee on the front porch appreciating the beauty and nature. I relax while observing and listening to sounds of the birds, pond fountain and crickets. My husband's favorite place is on the deck. Weather it's in the hot tub, gazing out at the pond or grilling. As for our son, his preferred spot is in what we call the “BIG ROOM”, where he has battles in ping pong or on video games. Our twin girls love to spend many nights hanging out in the loft watching movies, making videos or just hanging out and catching up.

Perfect for a lerge group

  • 5 of 5

The house is large enough the Handel a large family reunion like ours. There are enough bedrooms and baths to provide privacy along with ample space for shared meals and fun times. The location is close to the beach and one group took a day trip to Washington DC, a place they had never seen.

A Wonderful Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about our wonderful stay at this beautiful property by the ocean. The home was warm, inviting, and most importantly, CLEAN! We crammed several families in the house for our annual beach getaway, but it was so spacious and roomy that we all were able to have our own personal space, as well. We loved the yard, the view, the hot tub, and all of the amenities the house offered. We have been used to being able to walk to the beach in the past, but even though we had to drive a few minutes to gain access, the pleasantries and personal touches of the property made it well worth it. We traveled with children as young as two years old up to grandparents in their late 60's and everyone found the home to be a perfect fit for our family. Thank you for a great week at the beach and a lovely place to come home to!

Comfortable and beautifully decorated home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house over the long 4th of July weekend. It was a great place to be. The owner was very responsive and helpful. I didnt have to ask for much, but when I did she was immediately available. The home is HUGE and you can tell they put a lot of effort into making the place a perfect vacation getaway!

We stayed the week for our daughter's college graduation so we had about a dozen people. There was plenty of room for everyone and the addition made it very nice for the young ones to play games and sleep also. The fire pit was a big hit also and there was a huge stack of wood in back yard so made it nice. Plenty of dining space for everyone too which was nice. Nice deck and front porch to sit out and enjoy too. Hot tub was nice but jets did not work very well. Very peaceful neighborhood. Close to grocery stores and also the Rehobeth outlets were only about 25 minutes away. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again!

Great quiet location in cute town. Wonderful beaches close by. Centrally located for good access to OC, Rehoboth and Dewey activities without having to be right there in the action. Owners are terrific.
