Fun trip to the beach

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great stay! The house was close to the beach, and it was an easy walk to the beach even for our young children. While the beach was busy, it certainly wasn't too crowded. We could get a great spot on the beach each day and didn't feel overwhelmed by too many people. We enjoyed sitting outside on the deck and enjoying the view of the canal and using the kayaks. The house was very clean and had a nice, clean outdoor shower for rinsing off the sand. Our stay in Bethany Beach was extremely fun, and we are already wishing we were back at the beach.

Our family enjoyed our stay in South Bethany. The house accommodated all 10 of us just fine. Loved the canal front location, and it was an easy walk to the beach especially with a beach parking pass. Also the owners were very responsive and courteous with our questions and minor problems.

Loved Everything About this House!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful inside and out. Very quiet neighborhood. It's in a great location, 5 min walk to beach or just hop on the kayaks in the canal. Lots of places to eat-out or take-in. Our group ranged in age from 79 to 11 and everyone had a great time. Plenty of space for 10 people. The owners were very accommodating.

Undeniably best of both worlds

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how fantastic this house was. The "best of both worlds" tagline is perfect. On the beach side, it's a short walk with two parking passes and plenty of beach parking when you need to transport equipment. The beach itself is guarded during the summer months, and it was never crowded when we were there the last week of June. Given South Bethany is mostly residential, I doubt it gets much more crowded than that. We were a little concerned in advance of our trip about crossing Route 1, since the most convenient crosswalk doesn't have a light, but it was never an issue. Lights to the right and left regulate traffic well enough to cross without too much delay, and the low speed limit and police regulation make sure cars aren't flying down the road.

On the canal side, our kids loved to fish for crab off the house's dock. The owners also graciously allow use of their two sit-in kayaks for exploring the canals and the nearby Assawoman Wildlife Area. The kayaks allow you to explore all kinds of small inlets to look for birds, turtles, and crabs. For the kids, we were able to rent lifejackets for the week from Coastal Kayak just a few miles south on Route 1.

We had 8 adults and 5 small children, and the house suited everyone's needs. The owners were very responsive and helpful in pointing out good local places to go. South Bethany is ideal for anyone looking to avoid crowds while still within easy driving distance of good restaurants, parks, and boardwalks. Highly recommend this location and this house specifically!
