About Toni Bicknell

My family has been coming to the Bethany Beach area for over 30 years and we love it. Now, our grandchildren join us as well.

Toni Bicknell purchased this condo in 2012

Why Toni Bicknell chose Ocean View

We rented in Bethany Bay for the past 5 years and love the combination of the quiet, peaceful resort but being close to everything. Every time we have stayed here, we have loved it more, so decided to buy our own home here. It is very safe and very family oriented. I love getting up in the morning and enjoying a cup of coffee sitting on the deck and watching the sunrise over the bay. In the winter, we sit on the enclosed sun porch for the same view. In the evening, there are beautiful sunsets that can be seen from the living room. It gets harder to leave every time we visit.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is right off of the circle and is a short walk to the pool and fitness center and also to the boat launch. But it still is very quiet and relaxing. We keep bicycles and sporting equipment in the garage and are happy to share them with anyone who stays.

Dream Place!

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly appointed, extremely comfortable, and very well located! The home is well laid out and includes many warm and fine touches giving the feeling of escape and luxury. The neighborhood is well maintained, quiet, and friendly. It is easy getting to and from the beach and all the basic amenities are nearby! Even our rainy days were glorious here! Cozy nooks to read, enjoy a coffee or glass of wine, and dream - everything was just perfect, we couldn't be more pleased!

Our family had a great stay there this summer. The owner was so nice, we actually got to meet her, she even got my daughter a birthday card and welcome baskets. Would highly recommend this to a friend or family.

This is our second time returning to this property and it never fails to make us feel right at home. Toni is wonderful to work with and so helpful when we needed her. Everything we needed is right there in her beautiful home for us to enjoy. We are already looking forward to another trip. Thanks for everything Toni!!

Very clean and inviting. Great open space for family fun. Every necessary kitchen tool available!

  • 5 of 5

Easy to work with owner who made sure we had all the information we needed prior to arrival. Questions were answered promptly. Lots of amenities available particularly for a summer rental. We rented in December and enjoyed the kitchen /dining room/living room open space to spend time with family. We brought our own games, but Sorry, Monopoly, and others were available and the huge table was a great place to play games. In the winter bring a sweater. The high ceiling in the living room and all the windows make it a little drafty. We could have turned the heat up more, but chose not to. Those same high ceilings would help keep it cool in the summer months. Grocery stores were close by if you plan on cooking like us, but there are restauranta available and the owner left coupons for us to use if we chose to. We made full use of the Crockpot and griddle! We brought our own sheets and towels so we didn't have to wash on checkout day, but there are bed linens and towels available for your use.

We particularly appreciated how the owner put out Christmas decorations for our stay. The driftwood Christmas tree, the goose in Santa clothing, and the sailboat decorated in LED lights were our favorites.

This was I great place to stay at a fair price. One note of caution : this is a second story property if anyone in your party is mobility challenged.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying and for taking such good care of the place! You left everything so nice that I wasn't sure anyone had actually been there! Glad you liked the Christmas decorations. You are certainly welcome back any time.

Location

Just one building away, there are some benches with beautiful views of the bay and you can see the Indian River bridge. On July 4th, we stay there and can watch the fireworks up and down the coast from Dewey Beach, thru Bethany and some further south. The kayak launch is just a short distance away. You can go crabbing from the dock there.

Bethany Beach is a short 3 mile drive away but the traffic gets very heavy on weekends in the summer. We avoid the beach area on the weekend and plan to stay at the pool those days.

The Delaware Seashore State parks are nearby. We usually drive north 4 or 5 miles along the coast to go to those. One is dedicated to driving on the beach and surf fishing. Or, you can drive south from Bethany and go to the State beach there. Both still have some of the World War II towers.

Bethany Beach boardwalk is small and has no amusement rides but has some great activities such as weekly bands playing and movies on the beach.

For the 'big' boardwalk experience, drive south about 10 miles to Ocean City, MD. Beware of high traffic in summer. Or you can drive north about 10 miles and go to the boardwalk at Rehoboth.
