The privacy extends to the house and yard too! You will be nestled on a dead end street. . among the trees(for pivacy). . . cars do not park on the side of the road. . you can take walks, ride bikes. . . it's nothing like any other place at the beach!!

About The Owner

Yacht-Sea is owned by Morgan & Kathy Wootten along with their daughter and son-n-law, Carol & Steve Paul. We reside year round near University of Maryland. At Frostburg State University, we run an overnight basketball camp together for the first half of every summer... and then rush to Middlesex to spend the second half!

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Bethany Beach

We purchased Yacht-Sea after years of looking in Middlesex Beach. We have been vacationing (renters ourselves!) in Middlesex since 1987. Once we found the private beach, we couldn't go to any other beach! Our children have grown up being allowed to play frisbee, surf and run freely on an uncrowded beach. We also came to love the privacy offered from the 1/2 acre yards in Middlesex. We have tried to make Yacht-Sea a Renter's Dream by adding all the things we wished were at the numerous houses we rented over the years (and by copying the things we LOVED at those other rentals too) Middlesex Beach is our favorite place in the world!

What makes this house unique

My husband's favorite thing is that we park our cars when we arrive and get the bikes out. Our kids love to bike to the end of the street and buy ice cream after dinner each night. They also love biking to the boardwalk. Our younger nieces and nephews love the dead end street where they are allowed to bike and play ball in the middle of the road! We love that we can walk and bike up to Summer Salt's Cafe for wings and drinks! My parents love the fine dining (especially Parkway) in the area. The kids love biking to Candy Kitchen, the Dollar Store, Chinese food and the beach supply store. We enjoy that each age group has their own area to hang out in the house. The young kids are in the loft, the teens are in the game room, the parents are in the living room and the grandparents are on the porch...all spread out... yet when it comes to meals and family game time.. there is plenty of room to gather together! Mostly we love that we are secluded! Every night we fix our beach drinks, turn on the tiki lights on the porch and press play on the beach CD...then sit back, relax and smile! (and of course at some point, roll a game of yahtzee)

Great Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay even though it turned into a rainy weekend! The house has all kinds of unique places where the group can spread out. Staying just a couple blocks from the beach is worth it for the peace and quiet and beautiful tree-lined street. We will be back!

Thanksgiving gathering

Unique property and fantastic environment for family gathering. We did Thanksgiving weekend and the kitchen, dining and media room were fantastic for everyone to eat and relax. The owner was accommodating and responsive to our requests.

Great house, good location, lots of room for lots of family.

The place was great. Decorated beautifully, but child friendly. Quiet location, but close to beach. Carol was great to work with, and quick with responses. We would stay there again.

Carol was very punctual, helpful & accomodating throughout the rental process including our time at the house. We were very pleased with what the house had to offer. We look forward to potentially booking it again next year!

Great house for family Vacay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the house. Lots of little nooks for people to escape to when needing a little time away from family. Owner was very responsive to any issues we had (which were the fault of mother nature, not the owner). Have rented again for next year.
