About Don Dillon, MD (Retired)
I am the father of 5 boys and 2 girls and now grandfather to 16.. Being a physician in active practice for 34 years, early on we wanted a vacation home near Maryland in a family oriented beach community. Now retired and a widower, my family still enjoys coming to S. Bethany, but not as often. I now enjoy renting the D'Light House to let others enjoy the experience for large groups and reunions.
Don Dillon, MD (Retired) purchased this House in 1985
Why Don Dillon, MD (Retired) chose South Bethany Harbor
We always wanted a beach community vacation home and found it in the 'Quiet Resorts' in S. Bethany, DE. Over 27 years we, as a family, have enjoyed the fine beach, fine community of like-minded families and great weather, shopping, and restaurants. Becoming a rental property has only resulted after 20 years of exclusive family use.
What makes this House unique
Unique benefits of the D'Light House are its charming informality, big group setting, closeness to the widest, best, and guarded beach in the area, canal frontage and family boating for many years, children crabbing off the dock, and many decks to enjoy the outdoors and the ground level deck with tables for large group crab feasts and picnics. No crabs indoors, please. Ideal for use of your own watercraft like canoe, kayak or motorized boat.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Plenty of parking and great location. Couldn’t be happier with our stay.
Family celebrating anniversaries
Fun to have boat at property. Enjoying beach and location
Garbage pick up was a bit of a problem
It was a beautiful week in Delaware
The house was not very clean upon arrival. Along with lack of care in the yard. Other then that we had a great week and enjoyed the house & location
Checks a lot of boxes
1) Very affordable; 2) short walk to the beach (about 2-3 city blocks); 3) lots of dockside seating by the canal; 4) appliances and TVs that work; 5) ample parking for at least seven cars; 6) 2nd-floor deck and rooftop balcony for views; 7) collection of children's toys & games; 8) nice neighborhood for leisurely walks; 9) five big bedrooms plus two extras; 10) five bathrooms well situated.
Dr. Don was extremely responsive, making any requests/questions I had resolved in a timely manner. Nice house in a nice neighborhood, right on the canal. Good times were had by all.
Johnny Vo and his group were excellent renters. If an issue (only one was noted) was noticed it was reported and I was given a chance to rectify. The group left the premises in excellent condition. Rules were followed. And they enjoyed their stay. I would like this group to return any time.
