About the property

3 bedroom, 2 full bath, sleeps 10, only a 3 minute walk to private beach

Enjoy this beautiful home with a private 1/2 acre yard and plenty of parking! A three minute walk to the private, lifeguarded Middlesex Beach. After you get used to the uncrowded beach, you will never want to go to a public beach again!!! Middlesex Beach has beautiful sand, award winning lifeguards, no crowds and alcohol is permitted!! Surf Fishing is allowed before 10am and after 5pm.

This 5 year old house is available for a Sunday to Sunday rental and is just a block and a half to the beach. Avoid the crazy Delaware beach traffic on Saturdays by checking in on Sundays as well as all the crazy crowds in the grocery stores. The house has a newly added large screen porch with table and conversation seating. There are three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen bed, a Wi-Fi TV and a master bathroom with stand up shower and double sinks. The second bedroom has two twin beds that can be pushed together to form a king and a wi-fi TV. The third bedroom has 2 sets of bunk beds (sleeps 4) with a wi-fi TV and plenty of outlets for children to plug in their devices. Enjoy the WIFI throughout the house. Relax in the living room with a large flat screen TV, blue ray DVD player and a queen pull-out sofa. Kitchen has nice size pantry, table that seats 8, and an island that seats 2. Kitchen leads to mudroom that houses the washer and dryer. Wash off in the outside shower after a relaxing day on the beach.

Middlesex Beach is comprised of dead end streets so there is no thru traffic. This allows for a nice enjoyable community perfect for taking walks or letting the kids take bike rides.

There are plenty of attractions within walking distance (Cottage Cafe, The Boathouse, Pizzeria, Ice Cream, McDonald's, Chinese Food, Subway, Sandy Pony Donuts, Dunkin Donuts, Liquor Store, Walgreens, etc) and the Bethany Beach Boardwalk is just a short bike ride away. Rehoboth Beach and Ocean City, MD are also just short drives away.

Why Sean & Dana Sokolowski chose Bethany Beach

We purchased this property in hopes of retiring at the beach once our children have grown. The house is perfect for us. Every other beach house we looked at seemed to sit right on top of the neighbors. We love that this house is so close to the beach and yet sits on a private lot with lots of land that the kids can run around and play without bothering neighbors. We love the idea of a private beach with no crowds and how close the house is to the beach. Our main priority was being able to walk to the beach. Being able to walk to multiple restaurants, bars, McDonalds, Dunkin Donuts, Ice Cream and so much more was an added benefit. Also, we love the private community with dead-end streets. We feel it is safe to let the children ride their bikes with out worrying about rushing commuters.

We are so excited about enjoying many fun-filled vacations at this house and we hope that your family will enjoy it too!!

We enjoyed our stay. Loved that sheets and towels were provided! Really liked the screened in porch. Master suite was great with large bathroom and walk-in closet.

Perfect week in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Middlesex Beach! The location and the house were perfect for us. Quiet neighborhood yet still close to everything. Plenty of places close by to walk to or ride bikes. Barely used my car while we were there. We walked to the private beach which was not crowded (how we like it). Road our bikes to the Bethany Beach Boardwalk area and to beach yoga. The house was clean and spacious with plenty of room for us. The screened in porch was one of our favorite places to hang out. And the teens enjoyed the spacious, private backyard. We really enjoyed our stay and would stay here again! Sean and Dana were great and responsive!

Sweet home!

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely, very clean with comfortable furniture. The screened front porch is spacious with plenty of seating, lounging and a large table for outdoor dining if you choose to use it. It is only a 3 minute walk to the private, guarded beach. I spoke to security at the beach and they are very friendly. The house sits on a dead end street so very little traffic, safe for riding bikes and you must bring your own bikes; owners do not provide bikes. The Dollar Store, Mac Donald's and a Chinese restaurant all within walking distance. However, if you plan on making your own meals, the supermarkets (Giants and Weis) are located on route 26 about a 10 minute drive. Also on route 26 is a used book store newly opened this year. You will find a lending library box (take a book, leave a book policy) in the community located between Addy Rd. and Bridge Rd. The owners were quick to respond to my issue with a light that was not working in one of the bedrooms. No need to pack beach chairs or umbrellas as these items were provided and were in good condition. I did find that the gas grill was very small with two sides and only one side actually worked, however, I was still able to cook on it. Pots and pans were incomplete with lids that did not fit, but still usable. These are minor issues in my opinion and did not prevent us from enjoying our vacation in this house.
