Well of course there is the beach, just a short walk away (2 blocks or 10 minutes walking).....But in addition, boating, fishing, wind surfing and kayaking are just a few of the water activities enjoyed in South Bethany which is nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the inland bays. Not to mention the numerous public paths, endless walking trails and downtown Bethany that affords vacation goers a plentiful assortment of shopping, fine dining and recreation. We are located in a quiet family oriented community surrounded by canals and beautiful views of the bay, where children ride bikes and play in the streets, where people jog and take walks without reservations about traffic or safety issues.
Don't miss the regularly scheduled outdoor concerts on the Bethany Boardwalk! Sea Colony - an internationally recognized tennis facility - is within walking distance and sure to challenge even the most competitive player. Only a short drive to Ocean City, Md, Fenwick or Rehoboth and all the other Delaware Beaches where you can enjoy golfing, amusement parks, additional fine dining and tax-free outlet shopping at more than 140 stores in nearby Rehoboth Beach.
Don't forget your bicycles - there's lot's to see, do and explore!

About Wendy Ney Manley
After college we joined the Dewey Beach scene and fell in love with the area! As singles Dewey was a blast, but as our family grew and we aged, we elected to vacation in the 'Quiet Resort,' as Bethany has come to be known. Our neighborhood is very family oriented, where you know your neighbors and a last minute pot luck dinner with friends, family and neighbors is the standard fare. Kids make friends easily in the area and ours have been in many more of the neighboring homes than we have! Bring your bikes, take walks along the canals, lose yourself in a good book (or borrow one of ours!), cook a meal in our well equipped kitchen or sample the many great restaurants suitable for any pocketbook and you will love the beaches! We bought our home as an investment property and it has been a vacation rental ever since. Many families and friends have made many memories, some coming back year after year. We have tried to outfit the home with those things that will create the perfect back drop for relaxing, hanging out with friends, beaching it, fishing, or creating that huge meal! Our family lives northwest of Philadelphia, our kids are now older in college and high school. Our children love vacationing in South Bethany, as do we. We hope you and yours will too! We invite you to place your reservation and make some memories of your own!

Why Wendy Ney Manley chose South Bethany Harbor
We work hard! And we play hard! With many friends local and a far, we wanted a place that we could entertain larger groups without feeling cramped. Unfortunately we don't get to use the property very much during the height of the rental season, but when we are there our friends and family typically join us. Some day we hope to retire and spend some more quality time there, but until we do, the house is there for you to enjoy!
What makes this House unique
This is not your typical rental! Our home has a personality, it is not a sterile environment, warmer than a hotel room and the peach walls, thoughtful decor and inviting setting will make you smile each time you walk in the door. Our favorite spot is the front porch with the rockers. We typically start the day on the front porch on the warmer days with coffee, appetizers and a favorite beverage to cap off a perfect beach day and a night cap before heading off to bed. The screened porch w/ceiling fan off the kitchen is where we take many of our meals, and the open back porch is a very pleasant location to tan and read when seeking solitude. The neighborhood is residential, with lots of fun places to walk or bike ride. Especially when you head out to the bay, you won;t be disappointed with the views! The house can cater to ten people easily and you won;t feel cramped and can find places to retire to when looking for some 'me' time. The kids simply adore the Bunk Room on the ground floor, where they can stay together, away from parents. We invite you to share what you liked in our guest book and what would perfect your next stay in our home.
