Guest ReviewsAvg. Rating:
Location is excellent! We are happy we picked this place, everything about it was nice. We will certainly be back if we come back to Bethany.
We gave it a 4 stars, instead of 5 stars, because there could be improvements made. However, we were happy either way.
The best thing is the ocean views and super close beach access - we thoroughly enjoyed it. That alone makes this place a gem. Also we really enjoyed the open great room. Outdoor shower and hoses were very helpful. The beach here is really nice and has lifeguards. We actually saw Dolphins! A few things to consider before staying here are 1)exterior needs attention (decking is rough with no stain, landscaping need improvement/appear very unkept grass growing heavy through stone driveway, broken cement block thrown in corner, etc) 2) front door lock system has issues, with one digital keypad that none of us could figure out and a separate manual key pad, plus keys provided. We had to slam the door 3+ times to get it lined up to lock. 3) master bath is tiny and shower was in poor shape with rust on seams and shower door incredibly flimsy. 4) kitchen cabinets are very old and worn, one area of kitchen counter was raw plywood. 5) the owner keeps those nice blue couches covered with slipcovers, can't blame her with all the sand. 6) I had to hose off the decks and steps and two door mats when I arrived to help keep the sand out of the house, that should have been done before we arrived. Even with these issues overall it was a good place for the money.
This house is well located near the beach. It has ocean views from two rooms and from the small deck. There is more than adequate parking for three possibly four cars. The furnishings are better than other places we have stayed in Dewey Beach in the past. The beds are good for a rental. It can sleep 8 or 9 using the fold out sofas. The current owner has only owned this house for about a year so there are some items in need of upgrade and repair which we hope will be attended to over this winter. First, the kitchen is in dire need of a makeover. We toured the house before renting so we knew what we were getting but it needs attention. The main/halll bath is okay but the shower flows weakly. The master bath is tiny and the shower floor has cracks around the base and the floor below is mushy. I don't know that it is serious but it should be looked at. All of the wooden walks around the house and the deck are very rough. Shoes or sandals are recommended. Finally, there is an over under washing machine and dryer which work well but when the washing machine transitions to the spin cycle the vibrations can be felt throughout the entire house.Overall we liked this house but we will look at others before renting again. If some of the upgrades and repairs are undertaken we would move it up on our list because of the many positives.
