The Sand Trap in South Bethany


Relax and enjoy the morning sun as you look out at the ocean from the living spaces of this 6-bedroom home.  Its location, in a corner lot, offers plenty of natural light and beautiful views.

Sit down to eat breakfast with your family and friends at a table that stretches to seat 12.  Then, put on your bathing suit, cross the one-lane street and you are at the life-guarded beach!  When you are ready for a change of scene, come home and relax in the hot tub or in one of two shaded porches.

Spend the afternoon strolling the neighborhood, biking to the nearest shops, or simply hanging out.  In the evening, venture out to dinner in Bethany Beach, Rehoboth, or Ocean City, Md.  Finally, before going to bed, be sure to climb the stairs to the crow’s nest to count the stars!

Built in 2005, The Sand Trap comfortably accommodates large groups of friends and families.  Three of the bedroom suites have their own bathroom, and there is parking for five vehicles on the property, plus off-street parking for two more with a permit.

I have engaged the services of a property management company in South Bethany.  A team of licensed real-estate agents and their staff will ensure that everything is ready for your arrival and assist you throughout your stay.  The company issues the rental agreement, collects the deposit, makes arrangements for travel insurance, linen rentals, damage insurance, and will address any questions you may have before, during or after your stay.

Great house with a fantastic location!
Luke C.
We had a wonderful time and would definitely book this place again if we are ever in the area. Zero complaints. Cheers!
Labor Day Week
We had a family group of 10. We enjoyed the convenience of the home to the beach and the feeling of being in the trees on the deck. The large family room was enjoyed by everyone. Loved the outside showers and the hot tub. Very easy to cook in the kitchen and we had a great and relaxing week together. Overall it was comfortable for everyone. The only complaint I would have is that the third master queen bed (in the back of the house) the bed frame squeeked and groaned loudly every time you moved in the bed. It was not sleep-able. My daughter and her husband had to move to another room to sleep in a full size bed.
Celebrating that we survived homeschooling!
My friends and I decided to getaway after being in quarantine for 3 months and homeschooling our kids! We booked it last minute and let me tell you, it was AMAZING. Everything about this house was perfect. It was beautiful, the beds were comfortable, the decor was tasteful, it was all updated, the appliances were great, AND the owner was FANTASTIC to work with. It comfortably fit 6 adults and 8 kids.
We have ZERO complaints. It was the perfect week to celebrate and the kids had a blast finally being able to feel somewhat normal again. We hope to book again next year. I highly recommend this place to anyone! 5 stars!!!
Thanksgiving @ the Beach!
2019 was the second time my family has rented the Sand Trap for a Thanksgiving get away and once again, it delivered everything we needed. The kitchen and dining area was large enough to accommodate 13 people, even when we all wanted to eat at the same time. While it wasn't quite beach-weather during our stay, we did take the short walk out to the beach to get some fresh air. I have no doubt we'll be back again in the future.
