Beware. This place is not secure. Don’t trust Summer Place. When I went upstairs, the patio door leading to the master bedroom was wide open. That alarmed me. The next day I noticed the front door didn’t lock from the outside nor the inside. The lock was rigged. I I heard footsteps coming up the steps I. The middle of the night. After I realized the front door was insecure and I also noticed the small door leading under the stairwell was open when initially it wasn’t. Very scary. I left within 24 hours.

We had a two bedroom condo which was 3 floors. The sauna was on the 3rd floor in the loft. It was a remodeled unit which was very nice. Washer and dryer was a convenient too. Lots of stairs to keep you in shape.

The resort is being remodeled. Our unit was totally remodeled and nice. We exchanged emails with Wanda before our visit and she was very helpful. It is a great location with easy access to Fins and The Cottage Cafe, which were both excellent restaurants. I would highly recommend this resort.

The staff was very kind and helpful. Wanda was very accommodating. The only complaint I had is that the unit was very damp and smelled like mildew. I was given a spray to help the smell which worked somewhat. I probably would not return because I would be afraid to get a unit that had an odor or perhaps even a unit that is not updatws,

While this place is unique and big enough to accommodate a large family, it needs a thorough cleaning. First unit we were in: The ceilings are scared with water marks and the floor is soft in more than one place, including the shower. However, it is nice to have a sauna in the room (on the third floor) but the shower up there wasn’t working at the moment. This sauna heated up to 170, perfect! The window sills haven’t been dusted in years and the blinds are nasty and some are broken. Naturally the beds are uncomfortable but the decor is adorable and the couch is comfortable. The main door on this unit didn’t close nicely but the keypad entry was a huge plus. Much to our surprise on this rainy weekend when we returned from being out, it was raining in my room, on the bed my clothes were laid out on. We called and Wanda moved us immediately. Happy to be accommodated and annoyed to be packing and moving and unpacking after our second night- Right next door. Second unit we were in: soft, loud floors, same couch and decor. Sauna on the third floor didn’t heat up past 100, garbage filled cans in the master bed room, no cold water in the main shower and the shower head in the shower on the third floor barely works properly. All things considered we were just happy to be in a room that wasn’t leaking. Until this morning, when my mom went to take out a plate for breakfast and there was a tooth on it. Yes, a tooth. Can’t decide if it it’s a crown of a tooth or the half of the tooth itself. Needless to say, I’m thrilled to be able to be already be home!

Love everything!! Best resort, best location and Bethany Beach is such a cute town! Loved being able to walk across the street to cottage café, delicious! The best thing about the resort is Wanda, she went out of her way and above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for us and that we had a good time! She made us feel like family and made our trip extra special! Can’t wait to come again!

This is a small older timeshare in a popular beach resort. The remodeled kitchens are a delight. The bathrooms need updating. We had a two bedroom unit on 3 levels, so lots of stairs. Room for 2 cars under the unit and shaded. Would visit again

It doesn't look like much from the outside. Inside the living area was comfortable, the bedroom was large and the bathrooms were very nice. It's a small resort with mostly families. The pool area was very nice surrounded by a picnic area with shade trees. We enjoyed the quiet mornings having coffee on the back porch listening to the birds.

I grabbed this week through RCI as a much needed break for my daughter and her family after three months of home schooling during covid 19. I just spoke to her and she said the size and location of the unit is great but it was dirty. She had to vacuum and wash bedding and that is no way to start a vacation. She said it is fine because kids are having so much fun at the beach but she would not recommend. The reviews I read before booking did not indicate it wasn't clean and since that is so important to me when I travel I wanted to let others know. I do not mind an old resort as long as it is clean.

We were very happy with our stay at Summer Place. Check in was easy. We parked directly in front of our unit. The kitchen has been recently updated. There is a complete bathroom downstairs, for the person(s) using the sleeper sofa. The furniture was comfortable. The bedroom and bathroom upstairs had plenty of room. The bed linens and towels were nice. We were a short walk from the beach, shops, restaurants and Dunkin's. I would definitely stay here again!
