A Charming Beach Condo 3rd House from the Ocean

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-7)

This charming 2 bedroom condo is only steps from the beach. Enjoy relaxing on the covered deck or take a stroll on the private beach. This 2 bedroom condo (known by beachgoers as the Green Dolphin) is very clean, comfortable, and well maintained. It is in a quaint community located in a building shared by only 3 other units. The full kitchen is bright and airy and the family room is spacious and cozy with a full-size pull out sofa bed and comfy chairs to relax in. One of the bedrooms has a queen size bed and the other bedroom has a trundle bunk bed.

The covered balcony is perfect for enjoying a family meal or just relaxing. It has a table, chairs and a beach view. There is also an outside shower and a separate footwash. Parking is available under the unit for one car and there is room in the driveway for another car. Mike's Fish Camp is a restaurant at the end of the street (very convenient) -it serves lunch and dinner.

The Green Dolphin is only three houses from the beach which provides a convenient and quick access to the private beach. Its great location offers quick access to downtown Bethany, Rehoboth, Dewey or Ocean City. It is close enough to access all of the excitement but far enough away to enjoy some peace and quiet.

There is a State Beach located adjacent to our beach which allows vehicles to drive on the beach and also allows fishing right from the beach. There are tons of activties for adults and kids just a few minutes away.

There are several grocery stores located with a 5-10 miles and don't forget all of the fabulous outlet shopping available in Rehobeth and the cute beach shops near the Bethany Boardwalk!

Bethany Beach is a very quiet beach community with a quaint downtown and a family atmosphere. Our community at Tower Shores offers all the ammenities of the beach towns but also a private beach and great location.

If you really want your vacation to be perfect, with a great location, friendly neighbors and a comfortable laid-back atmosphere, stay at the Green Dolphin.

About Erin Schaible

Lance and I live and work in Virginia but come to the beach as much as we can. We have 3 kids who love coming down here to hang out at the beach and visit their grandparents. We all enjoy boating and fishing and the kids love to skim board and just hang out at the beach.

Erin Schaible purchased this condo in 1999

Why Erin Schaible chose Tower Shores

We choose Bethany because the kid's grandparents moved here and we wanted the kids to be able to come down and visit their grandparents as much as possible. We choose our condo in Tower shores because of the location and proximity to the beach. We fell in love with the community and have abeen enjoying it for over 10 years.

What makes this condo unique

The best benefit is the private beach and how close it is! Our beach never gets as crowded as the public beaches and it is very clean.

The community is also nicely maintained and has a small community feel which we love.

Nice, Cozy Getaway spot

  • 4 of 5

Overall, the condo was as advertised. The washer didn't work, which was a disappointment, but we had enough clothing packed to get us through our stay. It was quiet, and very peaceful. Short walk to the beach was perfect. It was a little small for 2 adults, a 5 year old, and a 6 month old, but only because we had to sleep the baby in our room, closing off the closet area. When we arrived, we found a pair of underwear in the one couch, and some broken jewelry in the kids bedroom. It was affordable, and exactly what the advertisement says, besides the laundry being out of commission.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Very easy walk to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful time. The property was neat, clean, and an easy few steps to the beach. Parking was great. The beach was beautiful and clean.

The only issue, was actually our fault. We didn't realize the rental was on the second floor. Three of us in our party of 6 are handicapped and had a hard time climbing the steps. However, again, it was completely our fault, and we managed to overcome that obstacle.

We would definitely recommend this property to our family and friends! A great experience.

Overall the property worked for our needs, but the home requires updates.

  • 3 of 5

The bathtub was stained and should be replaced. The balcony furniture's paint was all chipped and the cushions were stained. The couch was very uncomfortable to sit in and the living room appeared dark. The home had a good supply of paper goods.

Great Condo with a Quiet Street & Beach View

  • 5 of 5

My family booked this cute, clean beachside condo to spend time with our grandchildren. We had six people who fit comfortably into this space and had plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen is well appointed and there were plenty of chairs to go around in the living and patio areas. The beach is just a short walk down the road and it is well groomed. The shower,foot wash, laundry, and beach chairs on the lower level were a huge bonus! There is room for two vehicles, but no street parking. If you have more cars than that, it will be difficult to find additional parking. The only downside was having to bring our own linens. The owner recommended a linen rental service, however we brought our own. Honestly, it was nice to sleep with our own sheets and use our own towels, however it meant extra luggage on the plane. If your local or use the rental service, this may not be a problem at all. We had a fabulous time and look forward to spending more time at Bethany Beach. If you are looking for a beautiful place alongside the beach, you can't go wrong with this charmer!

Wonderful beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this condo. The location, just steps from the beach, couldn't be beat! The condo itself was very clean and comfortable for all of us. Thank you and hope to return again soon.
