Why Steve and Beth Gilbert chose Delaware

We loved staying here so much that we decided to buy a home here, furnish it nicely and rent it to guests to enjoy when we can not be there ourselves. Please view the virtual tour VIDEO for this home which takes you from room to room and through the resort. Just go to the TOP LEFT of the listing page and click the 'VIDEO' tab located just above the largest photo of this home.

It was such a joy to stay here. We were three adults and five kids, and never ran out of things to do. Whether we were hanging out playing board games, taking the shuttle to the beach, swimming in the pool, or watching a movie, it was the perfect vacation home!

Charming and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house, the village green outside the front door was a great place for the kids to play. The house and the grounds were well kept plenty of parking, the garage and patio with grill were perfect. Right across the street from the clubhouse, it doesn't get any better than that. A great family place with the indoor and outdoor pool, tennis, weight room, sauna, ping pong and a jungle gym for the little ones.

We really enjoyed the bicycles in the garage and made good use of the modern kitchen. We had great weather so we did not use the pool table, the 60 " tv or the foosball table too often but it would have come in handy on rainy days.

All in all we had a great time and would recommend this property to others,

Bethany Beach Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Eight family members stayed in the Gilbert's townhouse and had a fantastic time. The accommodations were great, and we particularly appreciated the baby gate found in one of the closets! We were delightfully surprised with the entertainment in the courtyard on two occasions- a movie night and a magic show! The short drive to the beach was no problem, and parking was available each morning. Thanks Steve, for a great week!

Great vacation home at Bethany

  • 4 of 5

This home is comfortable and spacious. It is kid friendly and allowed for great entertainment between the rec room, DVD players and grill. The open floor plan was great for everyone to be together as well. Close to the pool and beach shuttle. Everyone at the facility was friendly and helpful. Initially there was confusion working the television in the rec room but once we figured it out we were fine. I recommend bringing your own linens as the linen package we purchased was bare minimum and we found we could've used more towels for our family. Overall, this is a fabulous home that my family thoroughly enjoyed. The owners have been very nice and easy to work with.

Great property, location and facilities near the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I flew from UK to our daughter and her family in New Jersey and we all went to Bethany Beach from Thursday to Thursday. First daughter and 3 grandchildren for a couple of days then son in law and the other 2 kids joined us just for a great family weekend (they are at college/working in the week). The pool table and TVs worked hard with a full scale pool competition hotly contested with the table football being used by those not playing! Obviously the site was quiet which meant we could enjoy the indoor pool on our own! Largely cooked and ate at home making full use of the excellent kitchen facilities. Although we didn't play golf we overlooked the driving range and could see the course was high quality.

All in all a great trip, thanks!

Golfers Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful townhouse for our annual gathering in Ocean City! I"ve been running a trip to OC for 10 years and this is by far the best set up home we have ever stayed at!

Steve even checked on us by text periodically to make sure everything was good!

Will definitely be back next year!
