                                                              Karen E.

                                                              I was amazed at Jaime's guesthouse which he shared was a complete rebuild that he worked on for 2.5 years. The detail and care to the design and rehab was really impressive. It was a very comfortable and clean space with everything you could possibly need for a stay in the countryside while still being close enough to easily get to the beach for the day. I would recommend!

                                                              A great way to stay near Bethany Beach!

                                                              Thomas R.

                                                              A lovely guest house, open and inviting, with very comfortable beds. It's on a quiet piece of land. The drive to the beach is itself beautiful. Jaime is a very gracious host and my family felt most welcome!

                                                              A unique getaway location

                                                              Courtney B.

                                                              My family and I enjoyed our stay at this home. It stood out among other potential properties because of the design of the house and the overall size of the estate. The house itself has so much character, highlighted by beautiful wooden cathedral ceilings. And the outside is also well maintained, especially all of the various flowers in the garden. It was fun trying to guess the type of fruit that was growing on one of the vines.

                                                              Our big kids joyfully ran back and forth in the long hallway of the house, and enjoyed their time exploring the outside as well. They slept in one room, and my wife and I stayed in the other room with our baby in a travel pack-n-play. Jaime was a very gracious host and made us feel welcome and appreciated. My wife and I especially enjoyed eating outside on the picnic table, seeing butterflies during the day and stars during the night, and being close to the beach. It is not a long drive to Fenwick Island State Park (16-18 minute drive), and we had previously purchased a parking pass so we could access the beach there. We also drove to Bethany on another day, also not far away. The routes themselves are filled with a mixture of small businesses, farms, and wide open spaces, a nice change of pace from city life.

                                                              If you are looking for a unique rental in the peaceful countryside not too far away from several beaches, this would be an excellent choice for you.

                                                              Great location, perfect space for our family of 5. Definitely recommend staying here!

                                                              We chose this location for its close proximity to the beach (10 minute drive to Bethany beach). Jaime & Isabel were welcoming & attentive.

                                                              We spent our days at the beach and evenings grilling out back and taking in the beautiful night sky. It was a wonderful space & exactly what our family needed. Definitely interested in returning. Highly recommend!

                                                              Country home with short drive to all beaches

                                                              We enjoyed our stay at this guesthouse. The owner greeted us upon arrival and showed us the house and layout then left us to enjoy our welcome. It had all the amenities of home and it was only a short drive to any if the surrounding beaches!

                                                              Dear guest,

                                                              Thank you for taking the time to provide a review--it's very much appreciated. We are glad that you found everything to your liking and that you were able to enjoy the local beaches. It was a pleasure to be your host.

                                                              Please consider us again on your next vacation.

                                                              All the best,

                                                              Your beautiful second home


                                                              Our family vacationed here this past Fourth of July, and our stay could not have been more wonderful! A beautiful Maritime style house, sat upon a glorious 5 acre plot - this was such a lovely getaway! Two chairs beneath a fabulous old tree provides a vista to your own private garden to watch the morning butterflies gather, a picnic table and Chef's grill make for exquisite evening entertaining. We would absolutely choose this as our new favorite vacation home. A beautiful house, hosted by a fantastic family.
