Perfect week at the Beach with Family

  • 5 of 5

The Stecher Cottage is ideally located right on the beach, a short walk over the boardwalk. Two bathrooms accommodated our large family. We love this place!

Amazing beach stay

  • 4 of 5

From the outside this property is not much to look at but the inside more than makes up for it. We found it had more than enough room for all 11 of us, a modern kitchen, and a great screened in porch from which to sit and look out at the ocean.

Another lovely week in Middlesex Beach. House is perfect for our family and view from porch is gorg.

  • 5 of 5

My favorite week of the year is always spent at 20 Dune Rd in Middlesex Beach in Bethany Beach Delaware. With 5 adults and 3 little kids, we were comfortable and cozy and cool with the ac. We spent many hours on the front porch enjoying our view of the ocean. Close to shops and restaurants makes this an enjoyable experience. We’ll be back again next year!!

We had a wonderful week. The weather was great, the house is literally steps off the beach. It was clean and comfortable.

Needs a good Cleaning

  • 4 of 5

This was our family's 4th year. We just love it! The screened in porch looking at the beach is wonderful. You are close to so many things. Beach doesn't get crowded because it's private. Their is also a snow cone truck that comes right next to the house.

Now the only problem I have is it needs a real good cleaning. The bathroom showers up and down stairs need cleaned. All mildew and moldy (floor and walls). Downstairs bath has a curtain and mold and mildew are 3 ft up it. We didn't even want to take a shower. I brought bleach and just pored it all over. We wore our flip flops and was very careful not to touch the walls. Every time we went i would clean right away (swiffer,wipe counters and light switches,cover the couch and chairs with sheets,ect.).

Like I said it just needs a good cleaning and new cleaning company. Other then that it's a great house!

Owner's Response: The weather at the beach can at times be hot and humid. Mold can appear in damp areas of the bathroom when tenants neglect to turn on the bathroom fans while in use or when tenants fail to maintain air flow using the HVAC system. The HVAC system is in effect a dehumidifier, but it has to be exchanging air to work. In this case the tenant, who stayed the week, starting Saturday, July 7, 2018, the tenant set the thermostat at 78°F. The system rarely came on and mold began to appear over the course of their stay. In any event if you notice mold buildup, contact us. We would be happy to send the cleaning service over to retract any mold from the tile or mildew on the shower curtain, usually that same day.
