About Annie Switzer

Todd & Annie Switzer - We live in Bethesda MD and have two daughters, ages 14 and 9. We met in college at Boston University. We used to travel a lot, but decided to buy a vacation home at the beach once we had kids.

Annie Switzer purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Annie Switzer chose Delaware

We love that Bethany Beach is so family-oriented. The beaches are beautiful, and there are shops in the Boardwalk area. The outlet stores in Rehoboth are a short drive away. We love Bayside at Bethany Lakes. The Clubhouse is what distinguished this property from all the others we looked at. The indoor pool, hot tub, sauna, fitness center, and game room make even January a great time to visit the beach! In the summertime, the outdoor pool is great with bay views all around.

What makes this townhome unique

The sunsets views on the bay are unbelievable. When we saw the view, we knew this was the place for us. We often plan our schedule to be home at sunset time. It makes you never want to leave the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Well, we have just returned from a wonderful stay at your beach house! We had a great vacation and a terrific week. The house was everything we expected and more. The view from the porch is amazing and we all enjoyed being able to watch the sun set over the water.

The community itself was also wonderful. We utilized both swimming pools, the clubhouse and the beach shuttle service. Which certainly made vacationing with our children all the more enjoyable. It was impossible for there to ever be an "I'm bored" moment. LOL!

Anyway, I certainly hope you will be offering the house for rental again next summer. We will reserve a week as soon as you say we can...

Great property to rent!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay even though the threats of Hurricane Hermine hung over us. The lay out of the rental is ideal and the location is perfect. The sun sets from this property are breath taking. Best of all are the owners. They were always quick to respond and very helpful. We have rented a number of properties and found this one to be one of the best!! We would not hesitate to return.

Owner's Response: Hi Susan, Thank you for your kind review! We also think our place is a "gem" with the beautiful sunsets over the bay. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and the Eastern Shore's wonderful Farmers Markets. No rotten tomatoes there! Spain sounds incredible, and we are so happy that you chose to spend part of your home visit at our home away from home. Safe travels! Annie

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience with this condo. The condo development was very nice, well-kept. The owners were great to deal with. The info provided before and during our vacation was extremely helpful. The condo was nice, clean and looked just like the pictures. There were 7 of us and we had plenty of space due to the layout. Information in regards to the condo, restaurants and Bethany (in general) were placed in areas that were easily seen. The views from the decks were beautiful. I especially liked the deck rocking chairs :) The TV/cable was not as user friendly as we would have liked but we managed. It's not an owner issue but a cable provider issue. The clubhouse/pool that we had access to (with a fee) was really nice. We used the pool almost every day. In summary, we had such a great experience over all and plan to rent again next year, but for a longer time.

Incredible vacation!!!!Incredible home!!! Incredible owners!!!

  • 5 of 5

I must admit this was the very first time we have ever rented on VRBO and I was very skeptical... but after talking with Annie, just one time I felt like we were staying at a personal friend's vacation home. It was absolutely perfect! I still can't imagine that all properties listed here could possibly be as perfect as this home... but now at least I don't have to look any further... This will be "our vacation home" for many years to come!!! Where to begin... I guess that has to be the sunsets.... The sunsets were like waiting for the fire works to start each night. We made sure we were "home" to enjoy them...I just realized I wrote home and that is exactly how I felt. The town home was super comfortable, decorated so nicely, it was fresh and clean with plenty of room to relax and unwind. It had everything that we could need or want. The clubhouse almost made us wish for a rainy day... it is beautiful with so much to do. We loved the outdoor pool and almost felt guilty when choosing to forego the beach a couple of time to spend the day there...It was so much fun to cook out at the pool and enjoy the bay views from there. We loved to watch the sunsets from not only our porch but also from the sunset gazebo by the boat dock. My husband and son spent many mornings fishing from the dock and by the kayak launch. Bethany itself has such a beautiful beach. It is so convenient to park right next to the beach and be right on the boardwalk for a walk to the restroom or into town for lunch/shopping... I cannot say enough good things about this property! Thank you Annie and family for sharing your home with us!!! We can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: Hi Christine, Thanks so much for your wonderful review!! We are so happy to hear that your family felt so comfortable staying in our beach house. We do strive to make sure our place is clean & comfortable so our guests can relax. I can totally relate to your comments about the sunset. It is a nightly event that we don't want to miss. We would love to host your family again any time. Thanks again. Annie & Todd

Beautiful Bayside Location

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse was a great location for a Bethany vacation. The bay view from the two decks was really beautiful and the sunsets were pretty spectacular-even better than the photos on this site. The house is very clean and spacious with a well-equipped kitchen. They even had a very nice Pack’ n Play, feeding chair and changing table for a toddler which were helpful for our group. It was a very comfortable place to spend a relaxing week.

The house is very conveniently located near Bethany beach but is also a good central location to visit the surrounding areas with a lot to do for both kids and adults. We also visited the state parks at Fenwick Island and Delaware Seashore for additional beach time and part of our group went on some day trips to Rehoboth/Milton for the Dogfish Head brewery tour and also to nearby Berlin, MD.

Annie was so helpful and super responsive via email to any questions I had. Thanks for a fun vacation!!

Even the neighbors were very nice.

Owner's Response: Hi Teresa, Thanks so much for your great review! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We try to make our home comfortable for guests of all ages. I have to agree that the sunsets over the Indian River Bay are amazing. Every time I think I've seen the best one, I see a better one. It was a pleasure to host your family, and we hope you come back again some time soon! Annie & Todd
