"We rent a house every year with another family so there are 9 of us (4 adults and 5 kids). This was our 2nd year in the area (last year we stayed in loud-crowded-overpriced Rehoboth) and this year was SO much better. We loved this house! Favorite aspects include the neighborhood & location (quiet, pretty, but so close to the beach), the canal, the awesome outdoor shower, the "porch" swing in the backyard, the central air (which works amazingly well), the comfortable beds, the screened in dining porch, the incredibly well-stocked kitchens (plural!), the amount of privacy for each family, and last but not least the friendliness of the owner Jane. She answered all my questions promptly and helped problem-solve when I couldn't find something. We loved the quick, easy bike-ride to Bethany Beach with it's small, uncrowded boardwalk. We could spend the morning at Bethany beach, hit the boardwalk for ice cold drinks and snacks, then head to the house for lunch, and do a different activity in the afternoon (Like kayaking on the canal, or the Bethany Nature Center or Yesterday's Fun Toy Store in Bethany - a unique place!)
So easy to walk or ride bikes to the sweet, local, (never crowded) South Bethany Beach. Also had two awesome sunset dinners on the porch at Captain Mac's in Fenwick Island. Some days we drove to other nearby beaches just for a change of scenery. The state beach under the inlet bridge is really nice! My dream is to stay ON the beach -- still can't afford it -- but if I can't have that. this house is definitely the next best thing.
The ONLY thing I didn't like so much was Resort Quest, the property manager. They were NOT very nice or helpful when we had questions or needed help. :-( I hope they don't take too much commission!"
