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.

Fantastic Property in South Bethany Beach!
Stayed Month: May
Stayed Year: 2022

We loved our stay at The Sand Trap. This was a "cousins reunion" - all 11 of us now in our 60's - in S Bethany. The house was completely as described and photos recent and accurate. The kitchen was well-stocked and everything was in working order - really enjoyed having 2 coffee pots for the amount of people we had. The bedroom and bathroom configuration worked out very well for us. The parking capacity is excellent and the beach is right out the door! The booking process was easy and I received excellent communications throughout the booking, arrival, the visit and the check-out processes. Would highly recommend The Sand Trap for large groups - it's got everything you need and convenient to Bethany, Rehobeth, and Ocean City.

Super spring vacation

Our family spent the most marvelous week at the Sand Trap. The house is gorgeous - so beautifully decorated and comfortable for our group of 9 family and friends. The location is amazing - such easy access to walk on the beach (too cold to swim in April) and we saw dolphins one day. Also easy walk or drive to the boardwalk which was great fun to explore. We visited Assateague National Park and saw wild horses - a highlight of the trip for my granddaughter and me! The house itself was by far the best rental I've stayed in. Everything was in superb working order with easy to follow instructions and labeled light switches - a small, but great detail. The kitchen was well appointed with quality dishes, appliances, and baking pans. The large dining table was convenient for eating and games and the living room comfortably fit all of us for movie night. The bedrooms were very spacious and comfortable. One of the best things about this rental was the easy, quick response from the owner and the folks at the rental agency. They were both awesome in answering questions and making sure our trip was pleasant. I really can't say enough good things about the Sand Trap! It was a most enjoyable and memorable home away from home!
