Great Wedding Location

I recently attended a Wedding and Reception at this property. I was one of the fortunate ones that got to actually stay at this house. It was “Fabulous”. The back yard was beautiful with the arbor and the view of the Bay. The attention to detail in the home was unparalleled. I only wish that my own wedding could have been here. Great house for a reception, the floor plan is open and flowing and accommodated quite a large reception. I had a great time and would recommend this site as an alternative to a traditional Reception Hall.

The house was perfect for a week with the grandchildren and families. The kids had a great time in the ocean and heated pool. There was plenty of space so everyone could have any privacy they needed. The time we spent on the decks was quite memorable.

Best vacation home we have ever rented

Wow We loved the home, the incredible views, the interior-wide open, many decks and a pool with water views . Our kids loved their daily paddle in the kayaks and we adults loved the front porch in the evening wathcing the incredible sunsets. We're coming back

Excellent home for family fun!!

My family has been to many tropical islands on vacations. This year with the children being teenagers, we thought we would try renting a beach home and have the three teenagers bring a friend each. They said it was the best vacation they were ever on! This home was perfect. It was big enough to bring the grandparents, kids, their friends and 3 other family members to total 13. Going on vacation with the rest of the family built memories that were priceless. We found games in the storage compartment of the living room table, played cards at the dining room table and found ourself rolling on the floor playing charades with kids and grandparents. The place was located in between bethany beach boardwalk and ocean city boardwalk. It took just 20 minutes to get to either place. The kids were able to walk to the beach, go out on the kayaks or ride the bikes. The only cons were: The place was not as shiny new as the pictures appear. Stains on couches and rugs and hardwood floors scratched and worn. Only two bikes actually worked and they were very rusty. THe beach chairs are exactly as they appear in the pictures online but a closer look they were not usable either due to the rust. THe beach cart was also not operable. There was no Hot tub...It went out with Hurricane Sandy we were told. The pool was perfect with a big floating Horse but the foam rafts had holes in them and they were all cracked. There were plenty of nice lounge chairs. The Laundry room was very nice..uses regular laundry detergent NOT HE. The kitchen was very nice too..not enough plastic containers for left overs and no spices in cabinet. We really did like the two kitchen sinks and two refrigerators. My favorite part was waking up in the morning and having a cup of coffee with my family on the upper deck over looking the bay. On a scale of 1 - 10 I would give this vacation rental an 8. We would definitely return again.

We go back because this suits us so well. . .

Top 5 reasons we go back: 1. Start with the location – the sunsets can be the best 2. More on the location, few minute walk to the beach [watch out: you (the kids) have to cross a busy road to get to the beach] 3. Layout – the kitchen is a terrific heart of the home. Lots of space for a variety of activities – inside & outdoors. 4. Friends – because of the reasons above we & our friends/family have loads of good memories 5. Conveniences – from the laundry room to nearby quality grocery stores, they’re there. (we have stayed here at least 6 times)

We rented this house last year with our children and 2 other families. this house does not disappoint. the pictures do not do this house justice. The house is spacious and cozy all at the same time. the kitchen & dining room area made for great gatherings. the kids love the pool and we love the drinking and relaxing in the hot tub. We had slight problem with the internet but Mary was quick in getting it resolved for us. The local dining was great and of course love the tax free shopping. Cant wait for to be here again,

Great Weekend Getaway

We had a great weekend with family. This house was a perfect meeting place for our family that came from all over. The bay view and jacuzzi were great. This house was great for everyone hanging out together or doing your own thing. We enjoyed the restaurants and outlet shopping. Most of all we enjoyed spending time with the family and this house made that easy. Looking forward to a summer weekend this year here,

Sunset house

This is the perfect sunset house. The view from the deck is phenomenal! Get your glass of wine, the pick your seat, and wait for the show. This is such a peaceful and relaxing setting, you never have to move. If you do need some exercise, there are kayaks in the yard with easy access to the bay. The house is just a short walk to the beach, the Fenwick beaches are wide and have good surf. The house itself is very well appointed with all you need in the kitchen. View from the kitchen is good too! Our family will definitely be returning.

I rented this house with friends for a weekend getaway. it was perfect. We spent many hours just hanging in the kitchen for morning coffee or in the evening having coffee. We really got to spend with our friends and just relax. We prepared gourmet meals in the beautiful kitchen and enjoyed the sunsets nightly. The hot tub was a bonus. We also took advantage of the tax free shopping. looking forward to doing this again.


This was a great house to spend time with family, The beach and ocean are right there. Nothing better than that. The house speaks for itself , it has everything and more, The hated pool and hot tub are great. The kitchen is spacious for preparing those family meals and just spending time with the family. We stayed the year before in the red house which is just as great. Also found Mary great to work and telling us about the area as well. the restaurants and tax free shopping are wonderful. We will definitely be back

Great Week

I cannot say enough about this house, it had it all. The house was close to the beach, but the sunsets in the evening were spectacular. The house had plenty of room for everyone to either be together or spend time by yourself. We loved the fact that the pool is heated. The restaurants ans shopping are also great. We love Bethany Blues restaurant, best ribs around. We have been coming back year after year and always have a wonderful time. looking forward to next year.

Best Vacation at the Beach

We rented this house with 2 other families and their children. This house was great for that. The house had plenty of room for everyone. The beach was so close and beautiful. The kids had a blast. They love the pool, hot tub and the paddle boats after the beach. The deck was great for watching the evening sunset with a glass of wine. We loved just relaxing and enjoying everything the house offered. We also enjoyed the local dining, shops and boardwalk. The outlet shopping was great too. Looking forward to another week at the beach.

Fabulous vacation rental!

What a fabulous rental! The photos did not do this rental justice. After seeing the first sunset, we changed our schedule so we could eat dinner each night while watching the beautiful sunset. The home was clean and as described. Plenty of room for our family and friends to spread out. We have rented homes previously where we felt like we are stuck in a can of sardines. Not here! A couple of the older adults are not big beach fans, so the pool was a comfortable and welcoming alternative. The kids loved being able to jump in the pool after the beach. It was our first time trying paddleboards, what a fun time (after a few falls). The house is a short walk to the beach (about 10 minutes with 6 kids), but the paddleboards, kayaks, and pool offered a great alternative for staying home or on the slow moving days. The large kitchen made cooking for 10 of us a breeze. There were plenty of beds/baths to accommodate our family and I don't think we heard the kids fight over the bathroom once, so that was a vacation in itself. We look forward to coming back again next year!
