Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: For many years we 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. When we had the opportunity to invest in a rental property we imagined a beach house where large families could do the same.
Why the Owner Chose Ocean View, DE, USA:
We wanted to buy in Bethany Beach because it is family orientated and has a boardwalk with all the perks. Bethany is also Ideally located between the larger beaches of Rehobeth and Ocean City which are more comercial with outlet shopping and night clubs. We looked at many houses, but when we saw our home we immediately knew it was the one. It was custom built and had two large additions. The design was not your usual arrangement. The most unique featured was a ballroom sized family room where we imaging yoga or karate classes could take place. The back yard was private and enclosed; equipped with a playground set. The deck and hot tub were on the side of the house over looking a scenic pond. In addition to the large family room there was a huge bedroom addition to the main house. We imagine it being a dormer for a large groups of children...with the feel of a sleep away camp or an enormous slumber party. The house had plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. But more importantly it had plenty of space to hang out without feeling crowded. The three family rooms, the dinning room, front porch, deck and back yard, along with the large country style kitchen made for an abundance of space to interact or to enjoy some alone time. It was the unusual layout, the pond and the quiet neighborhood that excited us about purchasing the property.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We each have our personal favorites about the house. I love the quiet mornings with my coffee on the from 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 the deck. Weather it 's in the hot tub, gazing out at the pond or grilling. Our son's preferred spot is in the what we call the 'recreation room', where he has battles in ping pong or on video games. Our twin girls spend many nights hanging out in the bunk room face timing, making music videos on their phones and doing other "secret" girl stuff. These are our personal favorites but as a whole, we absolutely love spending time at our vacation home and we are sure you will too. There truly is something for everyone!
