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.

Family Vacation
Sally O.
This house was not only lovely but accommodated our family of 13 very well. Everyone could gather, eat and play together in the large living area. The easy walk to the beach was great. We all enjoyed ourselves very much!
Amazing views in a beautiful home
This home is lovely. The views of sunrises and sunsets are spectacular! The beach is gorgeous, with the dolphins playing in the waves. It takes a short minute to walk down the path. No traffic to worry about. It is a short drive to Bethany Beach, as well as Fenwick island and some great restaurants.
Our 3 generational family loved this home. It offered plenty of room to spread out , as well as the great room to come together to play games.
RIA is a gem and is immediately responsive to any question. She is the perfect hostess and owner.
The roof top deck is so peaceful, with amazing views. We all loved this home and will be back!
Awesome home with a short walk to the beach.
We are an extended family and had plenty of room. House is big and well maintained. Would definitely rent it again.
Sand Trap review
Another lovely stay at the Sand Trap this year. Plenty of parking. Easy access to the beach and a really nice view. As close to being beach front without actually being beach front. We'd like to recommend Ocean Cycles in South Bethany having used them for two years as well. The kids and adults appreciate having cruisers to bike around town.
