A lovely week at 117 Fourth St.
The house was lovely and spacious in an absolutely optimal location. Every imaginable accommodation was there. Easy walk to the beach, boardwalk, shops, and restaurants in quiet Bethany!! The end of the beach we were on was not at all crowded in spite of peak season. It is hard to envision a more restful time. Nice touches included spacious driveway, one outside shower with a excellent water flow and shower head as well as private separate shower and dressing space, and a coded locking-unlocking door system eliminating the need for keys.
As a former owner of a rental house at the shore, I have a few gentle suggestions:
The queen mattress in the second bedroom (not the master) desperately needs replacement. The person who initially chose this room was not able to stay there.
The door stop on the front door is broken.
I believe we paid for linen service in the contract but were instructed at the last minute to bring our own linens which we did. A bit of a surprise.
First shower outside had almost no water flow - an inconvenience to the first (and last) user.
Good overall time at 117 Fourth St, Bethany DE
Overall a good property with EXCELLENT and very quiet location.
Enjoyed your home
In general we enjoyed your home. Because it is only 1 week, I do not have the time to complain about the problems. The washing machine is not working. There is not enough flushing water to clean the cloths. We could not wash cloths. The bed mattress were not comfortable. The queen size bed at the end of the corredor on the right side, it has been used so much that you wake up at night feeling that you will fall in a hole. There are not enough lights in the living room. Thanks for sharing your home.
We're sorry that you found the queen mattress uncomfortable. We will check the age and condition again and replace it if necessary. Thanks too for your comments about the washing machine and living room lights. I'm sorry that you didn't let us know about the washer in time to do anything about it! We're also sorry that the neighbors described your group as "partyers"
The TVs were very difficult to use.
The TVs were very difficult to use. The instructions were complicated.
Five years in a row
Our family of seven has been coming to this house five years running. While it's not as spectacular in appearance or amenities as other nearby homes, its prime location (less than a block to the beach), accommodation of dogs, and plentiful parking is a huge plus for our four-car, two-dog family. This year we stayed for two weeks instead of our usual one week visit, and we'll probably be back next year, too. Jeremy is very responsive, the house is comfortable, and you just can't beat the location if you have to bring your dog on vacation with you!
We had a very nice week here with family. Town is bustling with many choices, and about a :15 walk away. The beach was very nice, pretty close, about ten minutes. Must pay for parking in town, but we rarely took the car.
Home was fine, with a well-stocked kitchen, and good air conditioning during a very hot July week. A top floor porch to look around, and an outdoor shower and foot-hose.
Would stay here again; the July 4 fireworks were just great with our close seat. Beach got crowded/busy, but could still find a spot.
Thank you for considering the wonderful Delaware Shores area for your next beach vacation. There are many wonderful locations to consider when vacationing in this 30 mile stretch of beaches including Rehoboth and Dewey Beach, Lewes, Fenwick, and Bethany. We have some of the most beautiful white sand beaches in the mid-Atlantic, where you can soak up the beautiful summer sun. There are long boardwalks, state parks, a resort, beautiful homes, awesome hotels, great stores, and restaurants ranging from pizza, burgers, candy, ice cream, and salt water taffy, to world class gourmet.
Activities abound for all ages ranging from bicycling to fishing, golf, tennis, kayaking, boating, amusement parks and sightseeing, sunset walks, nightlife and more. And for shopping fans, the area boasts one of the largest collection of outlet stores in the country and it’s all tax free!

We are closer than you may have thought.
