Watch the sun rise directly from your bed! Nap in the hammocks! Built with three levels of living space, the top level hosts a 180 degree view over a beautiful 90-acre Salt Pond. Two of 5 bedrooms plus 2 living-rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows looking eastward over the pond, which is often teeming with wild-life including herons, ospreys, crabs, geese, ducks, migratory birds. The pond is ideal for kayaking, paddle boarding, wind-surfing, and swimming from our private dock.
Our home has five bedrooms (sleeps 12 people comfortably) across 3 floors, a full bath on each floor (one with bath-sized hot tub), two living-rooms, full modern kitchen, washer, dryer, 3 open decks, an enclosed porch, children's play room with a popular puppet theater, 3 TVs, DVD/BluRay and Video, DirectTV, internet, outdoor shower. Tastefully decorated -- and not your usual beach rental decor! Ideal for a multi-generational family with children or for two or more families to share.
The beautiful ocean beach is in easy bicycling or driving distance but too far to walk with beach gear for most people. It is about 1 mile as the crow flies and 5 minutes by car to north end of Bethany Beach board-walk. We have one 2-person ocean kayak, a 1-person ocean kayak, two paddle boards, and a canoe: no extra charge however special waiver is required for families wanting to use the kayaks/canoe/paddle boards. Everyday bicycles and crab pots are also available to renters for free.
For a small additional fee paid directly to the Salt Pond Association, renters can use the Salt Pond community center facilities, which are an easy walking distance (10-15 minutes walking) with a golf course, swimming pool, tennis courts, pickle ball court, volleyball court, half basketball court, exercise/fitness room.
