4/5 stars
The house was great and perfect for our family. The walk to the beach was easy for us and plenty of space for the 11 of us that we weren't all on top of each other. The rooftop deck was a nice bonus as we got to see a rocket launch from Wallops Island while we were there. The only complaint was due to the housekeeping. The kitchen counters did not appear to have been cleaned prior to our arrival and there was a swimsuit left in one of the bathrooms. Makes you wonder if they cleaned the bathroom at all. There was only one house key which wasn't a problem for us, but could be for other groups and there was only 1 South Bethany parking pass but we didn't even use the one.

Great house
5/5 stars
This house was awesome. There was 12 of us-all adults. Easy walk to the beach. Had a problem with the air conditioning right when we got there but they had someone out there to fix it right away. I highly recommend staying here.

Excellent rental home for family!

I believe that this home is an excellent place for a family to spend a beach vacation! There was plenty to do in Bethany Beach and Rehobeth Beach as well as close proximity to Ocean City Maryland!

Great House and Town
5/5 stars
We stayed in the Bethany Beach house for a few winter months after we moved from CA. It was great to have a furnished place to stay in while we explored the area. The house was big and comfortable and had everything we needed while our stuff was in storage. Even though a lot of places close during the winter months there were still plenty of restaurants nearby. Our favorite was Summer Salts which you can walk to from the house. We loved the house and the community and are currently looking to buy in DE.

Great house, location, needs attention
4/5 stars
PROS: Good space for large multifamily group of 10 adults and 3 children Good room layout Nice decks with ample furniture, fan on screened porch. Well stocked kitchen equipment Convenient beach access Friendly neighborhood, very walkable. Convenient shopping within walking distance 2 outdoor showers, outdoor faucet with hose and clothes line with clips made post beach clean-up very easy. Ample parking off the street CONS: Heavy mildew smell on first level. Major source seemed to be the washing machine gasket. We used a washing machine cleaner on it twice. Recommend that renters be instructed to leave open when not in use, as there is always some amount of water in the HE machines. Odor dropped significantly after this. We also replaced the moldy shower curtain in shared bath on first level. Whole house needs a “deep clean.” Grimy baseboards. Toilet brushes should be replaced. Master bedroom carpet really dirty and stained. Dishwasher door is “floppy.” Must be locked to keep in upright position. Ice maker didn’t really work. Kitchen faucet needs to be replaced. Vacuum bags were overfull and no replacement bags were found, so couldn’t vacuum. Broom with broken off handle should be replaced. All sofas/couches very lumpy/saggy. They should be replaced. VBRO listing should be updated on following items: No beach chairs Grills are rusty and not really operable There is no door on first floor “den” which is considered a sleeping area with pull out queen sofa
- Joseph

We appreciate your feedback and have addressed all these concerns. Thank you for bringing them to our attention. BTW, there are beach chairs in the utility room under the home. By late August it is not uncommon for most rental homes to need a deep cleaning but with bookings back to back it's typically not possible to undertake a deep cleaning until September.

Fabulous Home!
5/5 stars
Thanks for a great beach vacation! The house is beautiful and was very clean! The four bedrooms and den downstairs is a nice arrangement . The 2nd master bed/bath worked perfectly for my MIL. The rooftop deck is a nice touch! The outside showers were clean and convenient for rinsing sand. Overall we loved our stay and planning on booking again for next year!

The beach house was beautiful and had everything we needed and more. It was close to the beach and was very comfortable. The only issue we had was when we checked in. The first thing we noticed were the entrance floors were sandy, there was garbage in some of the cans, and there was a lot of trash under the trundle bed when we pulled it out. ( candy wrappers, water bottles, etc. ) The only reason I mentioned the above was so the cleaning service was made aware.
- Joy

We're so sorry that the home was not cleaner. The cleaners don't move furniture on a regular turnover. If you'd like to return we will be happy to comp your cleaning fee next time.

So the 3 stars are primarily owing to miscommunication on booking. We were given this 96 S May vacation home in lieu of another one. We were very happy with the home overall. The space was clean, big, and family friendly and all of us were comfortable including kids! There were plenty of supplies, games, entertainment options that added to our pleasant experience. There were couple problem areas - the mild and mildew smell as soon as entering was obnoxious. We were worried about it since we had kids but we just opened windows and let some fresh air and sunlight do its role. That helped! But definitely something to look into - especially on the first floor. Then, the entrance door wasnt easy to unlock and lock; we figured our way but that could use some fixing too. Other than that, the place was great! The deck and roof ate especially a treat!! We had good weather so we were able to enjoy the property pretty well!

Loved the house last year This year when you walked in you were hit with a strong mildew smell. The oven had so much crud on the bottom it smoked whenever you used it. There were feces on the toilet. The spreads and blankets were filthy and needed washed. I have been renting beach houses for 30 years so I understand it won't be as clean as my house but this was the worst I have ever dealt with.

Acquiring the accommodation was easy the house itself was not all that great. All of the blankets and spreads needed washed. They were very dirty and disgusting. The downstairs smelled of mldew. It smelled that way last year too. The garbage disposal didn't work and the dishwasher backed up into the sink. The house was not very clean. The tv in the one bedroom did not work 2 years in a row. When you spend a lot of money for vacation and it is not what you expect, needless to say we will not book this house again.

The grill was filthy. I paid over $5000 for a one week rental and no sheets or towels were provided. The furniture in the main area was old and covered with the equivalent of sheets. There was a distinct cat pee smell in the dining area. Not real happy.

Perfect beach retreat
5/5 stars
The house was great. The beds were very comfortable. Plenty of room and not far from the beach. We loved the screened in porch but the rooftop was our favorite place to hang out.

Great location, Five decks!
5/5 stars
Great location. Beach just across the street. Please to deal with the owners. Close to boardwalk, great restaurants--try Off the Hook- Superb! Awesome beach. The best around. You can only visit if you have a parking pass issued by homeowners. We received one. It feels like a private beach.

Glad you enjoyed the home, Alexis. I hope you and Chris will return often. Jeremy

5/5 stars
The house was beautiful and very well appointed. It even had a couple of bikes along with a wagon and beach toys, all of which we put to good use. The kids loved the outside screened porch and especially loved the top deck where you could look out over everything. The adults loved the large family room with plenty of seating and a big screen TV. The beach access was good and the beach wasn't overcrowded as so many are.
- Rick
We had a great week.
4/5 stars
The house accommodated my whole family. The great room was roomy enough for us all to be together. We loved the rooftop deck, spent a lot of time up there at night. The parking permit helped tremendously since we had a young child and needed to take a lot to the beach. We packed it up, parked over by walkway and then were able to leave the car there all day. The walk was close enough to go back to the house when needed. The street was quiet and kids were able to ride bikes. The only thing I would have liked was for the beds to be higher off the floor, we have a tall family. Everything else was great. Being our first time to Bethany Beach, we would definitely go back.
- pwsteph
Close to the beach, good for families.
4/5 stars
Great for multiple families. Must cross busy street to get to beach, but total walk to beach is only 5-7 minutes. Only downside is that the place was not as clean as I would have hoped.

Nice beach vacation

This house was beautiful but not as clean as we would've liked when we arrived. Many very nice features and amenities.
