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!

Mike was an great host, reply was fast, accurate and when there were issues, he solved it very quickly.
House is just one mile from the beach, very comfortable and there's a very good restaurant nearby called "Off the Hook".
Place was clean, plenty of supplies and tons of information about the area as well.
We would stay here again.
This is a beautiful little house about a mile from the beach. Very comfortable home with two bunk beds, each in their own rooms downstairs, and a very large master upstairs. Lots of kiddie toys and beach gear (chairs, etc) and cable T , Netflix, and recycling. Tons of other little things too but those were the highlights.
Bethany Beach itself is a great little town, smaller and more quaint than Rehoboth and Pcean City, but plenty of restaurants, a boardwalk, playgrounds, and the beach is quieter and more serene than neighboring towns.
A very quiet neighborhood, other than the busy road out front, but we absolutely loved staying here and the hosts were so (email hidden)ways available via email, phone or txt if we needed them.
Loved our time here!
Just returned from a weekend at Mike & Lexie's place in Bethany Beach. It is a lovely apartment and we found it in perfect/clean condition when we arrived on Friday. We shared the space with two other couples--and there was plenty of room for all of us. It's a short drive or easy walk from the apartment to the beach/boardwalk area.
All of the important check-in/check-out information was posted conveniently on the refrigerator and Mike checked in with me a few times before our trip dates to make sure I didn't have any questions. He is a great host!
We would definitely stay here again.
Wonderful house, easy distance from the beach, and the hosts were very responsive as well when issues arose.
Mike and Lexie are excellent hosts. Mike contacted me several times leading up to the trip to make sure I had all the info I needed. They also gave us a list of recommended restaurants in the area. We went to Blue Coast and it was delicious. Blue Crab was also pretty good, according to my friends who went.
As for the house, it was clean and a good size for a girls' weekend getaway!
We stayed Mike's place for a guys weekend. Nice golf course a few miles down the road. Awesome restaurant called "Off the Hook" that you can walk to right next to the house. And a WaWa too! The place was simple and clean with everything in working order, and plenty of supplies. (paper towels, trash bags, etc...) Great location - 2 min drive to the beach.
We had a great time at Mike and Lexie's Bethany Beach House. The description provided by airbnb was accurate, Mike provided much helpful information beforehand and in the house (eg, restaurant menus) and answered all questions promptly, the house was clean, attractive, and very well supplied with kitchen equipment as well as beach toys, and the neighborhood was pleasant. Our toddler was especially thrilled with the outdoor shower. We loved Bethany Beach--very well kept--as well as playgrounds and the library story hour. I hope we can return.
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!
