Dawn and her pets were wonderful. The house was as described. I was only there for 1 night and Dawn was kind enough to stay up with me chatting about the area. She even shared some yummy scones! Thank you Dawn!

I have been an Airbnb member since 2013 and my stay at Dawn's home near Bethany Beach, DE was by far my best experience. When booking my stay, Dawn responded promptly to my emails and provided very helpful information about what to expect. She was warm and welcoming when I checked in and immediately made me feel at home. Her animal companions (Bootz, Jet and Pearl) were very sweet and well-behaved. The bed and pillows in the guest room are super comfortable and her home's interior is artfully decorated. I enjoyed starting each day with a delicious cup of coffee out on the back deck, listening to the waterfall and admiring the garden. Dawn provided fresh seasonal fruit for breakfast, and recommended a wonderful local café that could accommodate my dietary restrictions (vegan/gluten free). Her place is just a short bike ride from the beach and she provided excellent suggestions for local nature trails and other outdoor activities close by. It was a rainy/overcast Labor Day weekend and I still had a fantastic time thanks to Dawn's hospitality. I will definitely stay there again!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Dawn's. It was the perfect weekend getaway for me, and Dawn exceeded my expectations. She is very hospitable, warm, and welcoming, and on top of that she will gladly provide suggestions on some great restaurants, shops, and/or other activities to enjoy while in Bethany Beach (if you are unfamiliar with the area, as I was). In addition, her home is beautiful, inviting, and very clean. I look forward to booking with her again in the future!

Dawn made us feel welcome and comfortable in her lovely home immediately during our stay near Bethany Beach. She was very informative about all of our options in the area, including restaurants, beaches, and shops to visit while we were there for our short visit. We loved her home and our room, which was comfortable, relaxing and displayed lots of unique decorative touches. Dawn has a beautiful deck with a lovely pond and sitting area in which to relax. She provided home-made gluten free muffins, fresh coffee, fruit and juice for us in the morning, and we enjoyed the company of her sweet pets--Bootz, Jet and Pearl. It was an easy walk to the beach and boardwalk at Bethany, where there are also great restaurants and a bandstand with live music on some nights. Also a quick drive to Fenwick Island and surrounding areas. Dawn was always very accommodating, looking out for us to ensure we had a nice time. She even bothered to send back a jacket we had left behind at her place. We recommend her place strongly and hope to be able to return in the future.

Dawn's beach retreat is amazing...almost like a museum with eclectic and beautiful touches everywhere! The porch and backyard are serene with lovely gardens and peaceful sounds and gentle lighting. Dawn is such a wonderful (URL HIDDEN) husband and I enjoyed her company immensely! We loved Boots, Pearl, and Jet, too! Thank you to Dawn for a wonderful experience!!

Creative ,love the outdoors,my rescue dog Bootz and rescue cats Jet and Pearl. Enjoy traveling,meeting interesting people and great conversation. Love to dance, Zumba, cycling, full bodied red wines and a nice strong cup of java. Favorite places visited Greece,Italy,Yellowstone National Park, Sedona, Arizona,Grand Canyon, Nova Scotia and Lake Tahoe .....I could go on and on! My bucket list includes Alaska, Africa and Australia. The Triple AAA's
Enjoy all music especially jazz and country. Like to experience different foods and places.
Being a Host for Airbnb has been one of the most rewarding and educational experiences one could ask for. I want my guests to feel welcomed and relaxed in the comforts of my private home. When I travel I want the same so I prefer a B-N-B experience because of the personal connection and amenities of home.
All spaces are different as are the hosts and guests. Its an eclectic and diverse way to travel.
Life motto.......Treat Everyone with Kindness and Respect!
