Description from owner

Luxurious Bayfront Home on Private Peninsula, Gated, Beach & Pool, Water Views from Every Window

Luxury bayfront home with glorious water views from every window. 3,600 sq ft of splendor perched on a cul-de-sac in a gated, 21-home executive community. Up to 10 vacationers can enjoy five decks, screened porch, gas grill, whirlpool tub, wireless internet, computer and epic views that go on forever. This home delivers luxury and convenience whether you favor the private pool, tennis/basketball court, the award-winning beach, exploring, or just chilling out with your sundowner in an aquatic wildlife setting. Expect much.

The home is offered July, August, September and October and maintained to the high standard of a private executive residence. The waterfowl greet you to start your day as you sip your beverage perched high over long water views. The open floor plan and large kitchen island is perfect for your breakfast and snacks, and every window displays pristine bay scenes. The multiple decks and screened porch are adorned with relaxation seating for everyone. Throughout the day you observe shore birds and other wildlife go about their business in their natural habitat, and yet are only a 7 minute walk to the ocean beach.

Waters Edge features 4 bedrooms and 4.5 baths and sleeps 10 people. The master bedroom has a king sized bed, walk in closet, balcony and private bathroom with whirlpool tub. Every bedroom enjoys the tranquility of a natural water view.

Expect more when you are our guests. We provide starter paper products (paper towels and t-paper) as well as hand soap, dishwasher and laundry detergent. Also, there is no cleaning fee.

Additional amenities include a wet bar and refrig, large capacity Keurig coffee brewer, multiple large flat screen HDTVs with satellite DVRs, and whole-house WIFI with a computer, a spectacular glass office, elevated captains walk, with ocean view, private outdoor shower, and lending library.

Our nearby service coordinator is available to arriving and departing guests to deal with any unique situations as you begin your concern-free visit.

We tried to think of everything ... even a dumbwaiter for grocery deliveries. Multiple size bikes are available. A beach buggy and beach chairs is dedicated for guest use. Should the few hundred steps to the award-winning beach be too far, consider the large, uncrowded pool located minutes away from the home, where abundant chaise lounges and sunbrellas along with professional landscaping offers a lazy oasis from reality.

The Cove community supports only 21 luxury homes, so amenities such as the private pool and tennis/basketball court are never crowded. Our home sits on a one-area parcel which is manicured and surrounded by water on three sides. Did I mention the birding? In the morning, they come up to greet you.

The adjacent towns of Bethany, Dewey, Rehoboth and Ocean City, MD are reachable by bike or car. Have a culinary affair at the Culinary Coast. This region supports 100 restaurants to the North, and 100 dining venues to the South. Delaware is home to tax-free shopping and the endless outlet malls in nearby Rehoboth Beach offer plenty of upscale shopping opportunities.

The nearby Indian River inlet marina offers charter boat fishing, boat launch and docking services, dining, and a fish store selling fish right off the boat.

Join us for your next vacation and visit the award-winning beach and bay of Waters Edge.

About the area

North Bethany Beach is a high value up-and-coming area which is almost fully developed yet outside the city limits. We wanted a place where we could be on the bay to observe nature at its best (we've even seen seals) but within walking distance of the beach (minutes) and I could walk to get a cup of coffee (a small restaurant is nearby). We got all three in Waters Edge plus a gorgeous home. You are welcome to come and share it with us.

Family of 3 Children said...
Aug 17, 2015
It was our first time at Bethany Beach and we had an amazing time. We have three young children ages 6,5, and 2 and this was a wonderful house for them in an ideal location. The sunsets are amazing and the bedroom layout was perfect for the little ones. The kitchen and deck is large enough to accommodate a large family. We were at the beach every morning by 10am and back home for lunch and naps and at the pool in the afternoon. The community pool is excellent. The location is great to restaurants and food shopping and a short drive to the Bethany Beach boardwalk. Try Matt's and Blue coast grill for great seafood but make sure you go before 6pm if you have young children or you will have to wait at least 30mins or more. The owners are very helpful with any questions you may have and reachable via email or phone with a great response time. I would highly recommend this house for large families with young children. Thanks again for an amazing week.

From the kayaking to watching my grandsons first try fishing, this was a perfect place for 3 generations to spread out. Deciding on which deck to relax on, which floor to convene on, go to the pool or the beach, such decisions! Nine of us could do whatever we wanted and several could use the kitchen without overcrowding. Best sunsets and storm watching ever!

My Response
Your review makes me want to be in Bethany right now. Thanks so much for capturing the essence of Waters Edge and reminding us of how idyllic our home away from home is. We hope to have you as our guests soon again. -Marcia and Steve

Rachel Said:
The house is outstanding! We have truly enjoyed our experience there for the last six years. My only two complaints are the decks and deck furniture that have a coating of bird crap on everything that requires a bit of scrubbing to be able to sit outside and enjoy the [spectacular] sunsets, and the tile in the master shower that is cracking and thus a rubber mat has been thrown down and showered on and stepped on by everyone that has rented previously.

Our fifth family get together and the house is still as beautiful as ever with new sofas and carpeting. Couldn't ask for more as it has everything we want and need. See you next year.
