About Beryle Alexis

For many years we vacationed with four other families to the same beach house each summer. We did this to the point that it seemed like it was our own beach house. During our week stay each family would take a night to cook and we ate out on the other two nights of the week. When we had the opportunity to invest in a rental property we imagined a large beach house where families could do the same.

Beryle Alexis purchased this house in 2011

Why Beryle Alexis chose Delaware

We wanted to buy in Bethany Beach because it is family orientated and has a boardwalk with all the perks. Bethany is also ideally located between the larger beaches of Rehoboth and Ocean City which are more commercial with outlet shopping and night clubs. We looked at many houses, but when we saw our home we immediately knew it was the one. It was custom built and had two large additions. The design was not your usual arrangement. The most unique featured was a ballroom sized family room where we imaging yoga or karate classes could take place. The back yard was private and enclosed; equipped with a playground set. The deck and hot tub were on the side of the house overlooking a scenic pond. In addition to the large family room there was a huge bedroom addition to the main house. We imagine it being a dormer for large groups of children...with the feel of a sleep away camp or an enormous slumber party. The house had plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. But more importantly it had plenty of space to hang out without feeling crowded. The three family rooms, the dining room, front porch, deck and back yard, along with the large country style kitchen made for an abundance of space to interact or to enjoy some alone time. It was the unusual layout, the pond and the quiet neighborhood that excited us about purchasing the property. It is our hope that families can visit our property and leave with feelings of renewed energy, intimacy and strength returning home.

We each have our personal favorites about the house. I love the quiet mornings with my coffee on the from porch appreciating the beauty and nature. I relax while observing and listening to sounds of the birds, pond fountain and crickets. My husband's favorite place is the deck. Weather it 's in the hot tub, gazing out at the pond or grilling. Our son's preferred spot is in the what we call the 'recreation room', where he has battles in ping pong or on video games. Our twin girls spend many nights hanging out in the

College Reunion

  • 5 of 5

The property was wonderful! We stayed for 3 nights in January for a small college reunion with 5 families (including 8 kids). The house accommodated us perfectly. The pictures do not show how large of a space the house or the rooms are.

The home owners were easy to work with and made the trip super easy. Would 100% recommend this house to families and our group would be sure to stay again!

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year to stay in this wonderful house between Christmas and New Year's. It's a perfect fit for our family of nine adults and seven grandkids all between the ages of 5-10. It's a great location for driving to Ocean City or the Rehoboth outlets. The only problem we encountered was being able to regulate the heat. It was either too cold or very hot - we couldn't figure out how to make it just right.

Spacious and Accommodating

  • 4 of 5

Owners responded to all inquiries and were really nice. The living quarters were perfect for large families along with sufficient privacy. When you wanted entertainment there was plenty of choices from the hot tub to tons of board games. Family room was the largest in all of our yearly beach houses for families >15 persons over the years. We never felt like we needed more space. While we didn't have a tv in every room there were plenty of designated media rooms. I organize every year and when we were leaving all of the family said "we want this house again". You will enjoy!

Met all of our needs!

  • 5 of 5

This property has more sleeping capacity - COMFORTABLE sleeping capacity - than any other home we have rented. We travel with 6 couples and all of the grandchildren. EACH couple had at least a double bed, and most had queen or king size beds. The large room with big screen tv, ping pong table, and sectional couch was great for gaming and large conversations. The home was well equipped to meet all of our needs, and not stuffy at all - we felt comfortable to "live" while we were there. I hope we are able to return.

Over all a great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying in this home! There were 20 of us and we had plenty of room! The large family room with ping pong table was amazing. The pictures don't do the size of the room justice! The owners were very helpful. We forgot the pack and play for a toddler and they helped us located one to rent.
