The Space

Labor Day Weekend is now available - A 3-night block (Fr-Sa-Su nites) @ $285/nite. Monday nite can be added for $150.

This is a townhouse-style condo in Bethany Beach, walking distance from the beach (just under a mile). The immediate vicinity is a great area with many nice restaurants and other shops/stores. This private, cozy condo development has 8 units with a central courtyard. The parking lot is directly off Rte 26. Ours is an end unit with one adjacent unit. Our neighbors are very friendly! You can stay closer to the beach but it can cost you thousands $$ more for a week-long stay - this place is the best of both worlds.

Upgrades made in the past year include.... new king bed in master bedroom; new 43' flatscreen HDTV, Blu-ray disc player w/ wifi streaming, laminate hardwood flooring in kitchen/living room, new carpeting in all bedrooms, and keyless front door entry.

There are 3 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms. The master bedroom suite takes up the entire 2nd level, has a private bathroom, TV w/ cable & DVD player, and opens onto 2nd level deck overlooking courtyard, shaded by an oak tree. Master has ample floor space and spare air mattress if needed. Each of the 2 bedrooms on the first floor have trundle bunks (full size on bottom / single on top), each has sliding glass door to back deckway leading to grill area and private outdoor shower. Shared 1st floor bathroom. Total bed capacity = 8 persons. Can accommodate a couple more using couch (NOT a pullout/sleeper) & air mattress (provided), if need be.

The first floor has living room with TV (cable & Blu-ray DVD player) fireplace (wood not provided), kitchen, counter w/ bar stools, dining area/table, washer/dryer. There is an outdoor shower and charcoal grill (charcoal not provided). WiFi access is included.

Kitchen is fully outfitted with appliances, pots, pans, utensils, and coffee maker. New cutlery in the last year. Also equipped with a small bag of beach toys, beach chairs, deck chairs/tables, some board games, some sporting equipment, kids toys, infant swing chair, and a portable pack'n play baby crib. Our family uses this several times / year, you are welcome to use what we have, all we ask is you take care of things and kindly replace anything if lost or broken while in use, or at least notify us.

There are several convenient stores/shops in the immediate area (~200 yards) - Grotto's, Playland arcade, Wawa, Rita's (ice cream), Capriotti's subs, liquor store, tobacco/cigar shoppe, Bike/outdoor store, manicure place, chinese takeout, deli-style restaurant, Di Febo's Italian Restaurant, and "Off the Hook" (#1 rated restaurant in BB). Nature center/trail & small playground across street. There is a trolley stop 100 yds away, a great way to get to/from the beach or downtown Bethany. Parking pass is included for free beach area parking (please remember to replace upon checkout).

Summer / Peak Season (approx June 20 thru Labor Day) are weekly rentals only, Sunday to Sunday.

  • Great experience! Mike was very communicative and helpful leading up to our stay. The house was very clean and well furnished. Location was good. I don't know what else to say that hasn't been said before! Thanks, Mike and Lexie.

  • My experience with renting this house from Lexie and Mike was stellar! Mike not only provided me a detailed list of instructions days before the rental but also answered my specific questions regarding places to eat, rent paddle boards, etc. When I arrived at the house it was clean and organized and there was even a very useful binder with information on local restaurants, rentals and instructions on how to use the remote controls for the tvs (which really came in handy)! Also easy to connect to wifi and find everything you need in the kitchen.

  • Our stay was a great one! Mike is very responsive and informative. The property is very well kept and clean. It is about a mile to the beach and is just off the road (Garfield) that leads right to downtown Bethany. Upon arrival we rented beach cruisers from Bethany Bike Shop (about 1.5 miles) and then rode to the beach each day. Mike also leaves parking passes in case you have a lot of beach gear and would prefer to drive and park. There is also a fabulous restaurant across the street called Off the Hook, which is just an added bonus. We will definitely be back for another stay!

  • We had a great experience staying at this house. Everything was quite clean and comfortable. We would consider returning. Thanks!

  • This home was lovely and my daughter and husband really enjoyed it. The location was fantastic as some great eating locations close by and the beach about a mile away. We would stay here again.

  • We had a nice stay. The house was comfortable and well equipped - we especially appreciated the kitchen that had everything needed to make and serve great meals for large numbers of people! As advertised the house was under a mile to the beach - close enough to walk or bike. Slight drawback was the fact it is on the main road and one needs to cross a highway to get to the beach so not great for kids to walk or bike, and a bit noisy to sit outside.

  • Mike is very nice and friendly, and he was very helpful to make sure that our stay was just right. The house is great just as described in the listing! It's in a very convenient location and it's very easy to get to the beach. There are a lot of helpful brochures and information about the area that Mike has in books for you to look at and that was very helpful as well. In fact, we found a dolphin watching tour through those books! We were all very happy with our stay!

  • A well-equipped and very comfortable house, with everything you need for a good family stay. Our family used it as a meeting place for relatives who were attending our son's wedding in Rehobeth from UK and west coast of US. 7 adults and 2 young children fitted in fine. Hosts were helpful and supplied linen as we could not bring it all with us from UK. There was a heatwave but the air con met the challenge!

    Would recommend the small nature reserve just across the road. Friendly and a cool place to relax in for children during the summer heat, with an activity / craft session that we unfortunately missed. The lady in charge made up for it with a personal explanation about the horseshoe crabs there.

    You need a car to get the most out of the beach facilities and shops at the beach - but this seems to be the norm for the US. There is a bus service but not very convenient when the weather is so very hot.

  • Great Family Rental! Bethany Beach is a great destination for anyone who is looking for a vacation away from all of the commercialization that much of the other beaches have. Mike and Lexie have a great place to stay. We rented it for three nights with 2 families of four. The place was very clean and easy to find. We will definitely consider staying there next year.
    Their rental was not far from the beach, the trolley was easy to access and having a parking pass was also nice for when you wanted to drive to the beach. The outdoor shower was awesome! It was great for washing sand off when coming back from a day at the beach.
    The house was set up very well, lots of room for everyone. Having a fulled stocked kitchen to use is great and a huge savings when staying there. Buying groceries and making most of our meals there was a huge savings. Also having a washer and dryer to use comes in very handy. We didn't take home any dirty clothes or towels, we washed them all before we left.
    Overall we had a great time staying there and would recommend it to all of our friends and family.

My wife & I live in Northern VA with 2 kids, we love going to the beach house in Bethany Beach, DE, as often as we can get there! The kids love it and so do we, there's no better way to get away from it all. I'm originally from Buffalo, NY, wife is from Wilmington, DE. When we go to the beach, things we love to do are.... - Hit the beach! ...and of course, the hard-earned 4pm happy hour afterwards - Sit out on the deck at night, play cards or trivial pursuit with a group - Day trip to Rehoboth for Playland (kids) and a nice dinner out - Day trip to Ocean City for mini-golf, go-karts, and seafood - Cook up a feast at home one night - seafood, steaks, wine....throw a movie in for the kids - Mondays - family movie night on the beach! (See pic in our "photos") - Golf. A few courses in Bethany, many in Ocean City, some in Rehoboth Bethany Beach is a special place for our family, our kids one day will look back on some great times there growing up. We wish the Bethany experience on anyone and hope you find it as great a place as we do!
