There is parking for up to 6 cars, an outdoor covered table and charcoal bbq, outdoor shower, washer/dryer. The home is kept meticulously and shows pride of ownership. There is an unoccupied, off limits owner suite on the third level. It is never occupied when renters are present.
Great value and close to beach with ocean views. Internet speed / wifi needs to be upgraded but other than that all good.
We were very happy with our beach rental. The house was very comfortable and well-equipped. We enjoyed the decks and loved being so close to the beach. It was our first time in Bethany, and we were very happy with the location. It was convenient to get into town - which is quite lovely, and close to OC where our teenage boys enjoyed the boardwalk. There was plenty to do for all of us. The only downside was that the beach was too steep for boogie boarding - but that seemed to be the case on all the surrounding beaches. All in all, it was a fantastic location and the house was quite fine.
We rented this property after seeing it on the VRBO website. This was definitely not a VRBO as we never had any contact with the owner though some of my questions and concerns should have been addressed by the owner, not a property manager.
We rented it based upon its curb appeal: new siding, windows, and decks. This was misleading as the interior was worn and outdated. Specifically, The bathrooms were 1960's tile and formica, a broken shower door had been simply replaced with a shower curtain, and the built-in cabinets and drawers were plywood and dirty and in need of paint. Furniture consisted of yard sale items or mismatched cast-off (e.g., 3 different couches in the living room) and the kitchen had redundant appliances (e.g., 5 coffee carafes, 3 without corresponding bases).
WiFi was provided ..... to the entire neighborhood! There was no password, and at one point 24 unknown devices were online. We were reluctant to use such an insecure system, and the property manager said the owner would not correct this.
The 3 star rating was based upon the value for what was charged. Unless the interior is refurbished, it should not be priced as it is.
The best part was its excellent location, just steps away from the beach access path. The property manager was very responsive to our questions and concerns and very professional. He sent a cleaning crew out immediately to wash the smudges and grime off the faces of all the doors and cabinets.
This house is located in a great location. Features beautiful ocean views and the walk to the beach couldn't be quicker unless is was waterfront. The house was very clean and the bedrooms were quite spacious. We really enjoyed the decks and their ocean views!
We have stayed at the Kaplan house many times before prior to the second story addition. As much as we love the location, will not reserve it again. Both the living room furniture and deck furniture need updated for more comfort. There was only one chair to sit on outside which was not great for some who have back issues.
