When we first saw this two-level home with its three bedrooms and 2.5 baths, we were immediately attracted by the wonderful location and features that make it an ideal vacation spot:
- End unit with wooded lots on the side and back for privacy and quiet,
- Faces a pond with tadpoles and frogs for the young ones to explore,
- Fountain in the pond provides a pleasant sound and sight as you leave the house,
- Last unit in the courtyard so no traffic at this site.
Once we got inside the house, we were further impressed by the quality standards and many features including:
- Welcoming entry with high vaulted ceilings,
- Gas fireplace, zoned cooling and heating for a comfortable visit,
- Expansive windows on the side facing the woods,
- Sun room with a large, fenced deck off the back,
- Gas grill hook-up on the deck (and we have the grill),
- Three bedrooms with full baths off both of the back bedrooms (upstairs and downstairs),
- Ceiling fans in every room
- Convenient nook upstairs between the bedrooms for a TV and wrap-around sofa (with hide-away bed),
- Upstairs loft provides additional sitting area,
- Fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator (with ice maker and filtered water dispenser), stove, and lots of storage along with a large coffee maker, toaster oven, and a variety of pots, pans, utensils, glasses, mugs, silverware and glasses,
- Half bath near the front door and garage,
- Stacking full-sized washer and dryer.
We've since been busy making improvements and adding those additional touches for a pleasant stay:
- TV's with DVD/VCR players and a selection of tapes on both levels (downstairs TV is on a cart to allow breakfast in bed or watching around the sitting areas),
- Queen beds in both master bedrooms,
- Twin beds with a trundle bed in the front bedroom sleeps 3,
- Labeled wall light switches to make it easy to get the lights and fans on,
- Safety items like child-proofed sockets, fire extinguishers, and carbon monoxide detector,
- Games, books and puzzles for all ages,
- Coordinated decorating in each room,
- Dining room table expands to accommodate visitors easily,
- Added a fence to the back deck along with the large picnic table,
- Assortment of bikes for trips to the beach (an easy ride)
The Waterside community provides a wonderful location to Bethany Beach and surrounding areas with:
- Convenient access to the beach (less than 1.5 miles bike/walk or 2 mi drive) and main thoroughfares,
- Community outdoor pool,
- Safe walking with side walk and no through traffic,
- Access to nearby boat launch that leads to the ocean.
Further on, Bethany Beach, Rehoboth and Ocean City have no end of shopping, outlet stores, entertainment, restaurants, golf courses, miniature golfing, convention center, amusement rides, candy shops, gift stores, movie theatres and all the necessary places for a relaxing and fun-filled vacation.

"Our family loved everything about this home away from home !"

We enjoyed the privacy and outdoor space this home's location provided for our family. The short ride to the beach took no more than 5 minutes at the busiest times. The owners have abundantly supplied everything! Our grandchildren enjoyed the yard ,pool, and the many toys and games at the house. Mike and Janine were very accommodating and provided numerous useful tips and directions in a very informative welcome packet.

The owners were very gracious in allowing us to stay in the pre-season. The townhouse was very comfortable, nicely decorated, close to the beach, and very comfortable. Hope to stay again some time and would recommend without question.

Eagles Rest is off the beaten path and very quiet. It is away from the hub-bub but still close to everything you want to do at the Delaware shore. The house and furnishing are very nice. Location in the complex is perfect. The owners are very nice and helpful. I hesitated doing a review because I don't want to lose out on this hidden gem.

Our family including our two daughters their spouses and our 5 yr old grandson spent the week of Labor Day at Eagles Rest. Everything was fabulous at this well equipped vacation home. We were very close to the ocean and boardwalk, shops and restaurants, fishing and kayaking, and mini golf. We appreciated how clean and cozy everything was. I appreciated the quick response and precise details of the area from the owners. It truly made our 2013 Bethany Vacation an excellent adventure.

Nothing in previous reviews is misleading about this home; it delivers everything it promises to every member of the family. This end unit is super private and accessible to everything you need. The kitchen, though small, is well stocked and labeled, and the dining room table comfortably seats a large family. Loved the private deck, available bikes, games and boogie boards and the internet access, though not always the best, was reliable enough for our entertainment usage. Upon arrival the cleaning folks arrived with us. However, they were very nice and did not get in our way. This home is clearly loved so if you come, love it as your own and enjoy your stay!

We spent the Fourth Of July in this beautiful condo. It was wonderful to have spent some quality down time with my daughter and granddaughter in Bethany Beach. This condo was very nicely located in a quiet ection of Bethany
Beach only 10 minutes from the beach. The owners are wonderful to work with and I will certainly look into renting this condo for future trips to Bethany Beach.

Spent a winter "girls only" weekend in this lovely home with my sisters and mom...we felt like it is a home away from home, very comfortable and welcoming. would be a wonderful place for a family for any season.

We have been staying in this townhouse for years! It is always clean when we check-in. Owner is great to work with. There are lots of games in the house for all ages. The pool is a huge hit with the kids. It is nice to be able to get off the beach and still be by water. Close to many amenities. We go to the beach on ashwood most of the time. Last fall we went closer to the boardwalk. The Fenwick State Park beach is super nice. This is a place to come back to year after year.

Totally enjoyed Eagles Rest with plenty of quiet times doing puzzles, reading and fixing great meals in the fully equipped kitchen. The 5 min ride to the beach allowed us to shop, (plenty of parking in September)walk on a quiet beach and have a great meal at one of the local resturants. Since Eagles' Rest is a end unit, while you eat, you can observe lots of bird life at the boardering state park.

The townhouse has 2 Master bedrooms which works great for us! The parents and kids can stay upstairs and the grandparents downstairs. The gas grill and the deck is ideal and the garage full of various toys is a nice addition. Also there are tons of games to play. It is 2 miles from the beach but having a pool available is a great option! We loved shopping and walking on the boardwalk, and the fact that Bethany Beach seems very family friendly.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Bethany! The home is in a wonderful neighborhood which we enjoyed walking around. There was nothing lacking - bikes, extra beach chairs - everything we could possibly need. This was our third year renting in Bethany and this was, by far, the absolute best rental we have stayed in - it truly felt like home.

This was my first time renting via the internet, and I was so pleased. Our adult family had a vacation together for the first time ever, and we had a wonderful time. The facilities were great and the landlords were so helpful...everything was marked and they answered questions before we ever got there. My adult children thought it was the best vacation they ever had.

This is a top notch house! It has all you need and more. My kids love that there is a pool in the neighborhood . The neighborhood is quiet and minutes from lots to do. We have been vacationing at this spot for a number of years now. You will enjoy every minute.
