What a great find! This property was the perfect place for our family!
The layout provided enough space and privacy (each bedroom is roomy and has its own bathroom) for our entire family. The location was ideal - right off the main drag, yet tucked away in a quiet, private community that made you feel like you were hundreds of miles away from the craziness of the beach towns. Yet, when we wanted to go into downtown Bethany or north to Dewey or to the outlets - it was a quick drive. Having the option of the pool and tennis courts were super convenient and we loved being so close to the ocean.
But, I think our favorite part was watching the sunsets from the back porches! To say that they were incredible is an understatement. It was simply the cherry on top to this phenomenal week at the beach. We can't wait to return next summer!
The 'puzzle house' is a 5 story townhouse, which is nicely decorated and equipped, located in a gated marina complex, and overlooking the Indian River Inlet. There are three guest suites (with comfortable bedding) each with its own bathroom on separate floors, a kitchen/dining floor, and a Family/TV Room (with half bath) with great sunset views. There is also a loft (a sixth floor) with trundle beds and another bathroom that would be perfect for children. It provided room and great privacy for our multi-family week at the beach.
The location was great - it is within walking distance of a community pool and tennis court, a marina convenience store, and fishing boats; and it is about a 10 minute walk or bike ride to Delaware Seashore State Park beach. It is also a very short (<20 minute) drive to downtown Bethany, Dewey or Rehoboth Beach things to do/restaurants but provides a much less busy environment from which to relax or explore the area.
Ann the owner was great in providing us keys and directions as soon as we confirmed our stay, and she checked to make sure everything was okay. We hope to stay there again next year.
