We're continually making updates to our Dewey Getaway home to make it even more comfortable and enjoyable. A few things we've done recently: all new living room furniture (2018), new 50" 4K smart TV w HBO (2018), fireplace makeover (2018), interior freshly painted (2017), updated kitchen (2017), renovated powder room (2017), renovated master bath (2016), Infrared grill (2016), hot water heater (2016), mattresses (2015), HVAC (2015), washer, dryer + dishwasher (2015).

We even provide one crate that fits our 60 lb. lab mix. This grassy property is a rarity in Dewey and a doggy delight. We also provide clean stainless steel bowls! Sorry, no cats or other pets.

DEWEY IS THE MOST DOG FRIENDLY BEACH AROUND - Dewey allows dogs on the beach anytime between Sept 15-May 15 and before 9:30a and after 5:30 p from May 15 - Sept 15. And with bay access just around the corner what dog wouldn't be happy? We provide a list of dog friendly restaurants, our favorite spots for sun & fun with fido and pet shops, veterinarians, etc.

Wonderful family & dog friendly property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely townhouse for a quiet family vacation near the beach. The property was well appointed with appliances, cooking and table ware. The townhouse was well maintained and very clean. This property is actually nicer in person versus the online pictures. The neighborhood was quiet and safe and centrally located. The beach was only a couple of blocks away. The property owners were very responsive, helpful and wonderful to interact with. They have a great welcome binder filled with local information on restaurants and things to do so you don't have to waste time doing research on the DE beach area. We would definitely recommend this property to family and friends!

Peaceful Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location! A five minute drive to Rehoboth, and just over a half hour drive to Ocean City. Our dogs enjoyed walks around the neighborhood, and visiting Woody's Grille - a pet friendly restaurant -recommended by Anne.

The house was decorated beautifully and had everything we needed. There was a nice binder full of recommendations and many places were just around the corner. Anne was very accommodating and quick to respond to all of our questions prior to our trip and while we were there.

The beach was a short distance away and the bay was visible, though we couldn't find public access to the bay. Overall, this was a great experience and we would recommend to anyone.

Owner's Response: Karen, I'm so happy to know that you enjoyed your time at our dog friendly townhome! My goal is for all of our guests to have a wonderful experience, so I'm very glad I could be helpful. I'm sorry you didn't find the bay access - it's just around the corner on Dodd street. It's not fancy - a boat ramp - but the pups love it and it's perfect for launching kayaks and stand up paddleboards. The signs can be a bit confusing as the home next to it has no tresspassing signs, but the boat ramp is open for use! I hope you'll come back and stay with us again!

Comfortable and relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4--and our fur baby enjoyed a fantastic weekend get away at this wonderful beach home. The house is dog friendly and immaculate. The beautiful tranquil decor helped me exhale and sink into the comfortable furniture. The kitchen is well stocked should you decide to stay in. The house is so well located. We enjoyed the short walk to the beach and bay. Winter arrived with our visit so we benefited from the close proximity to the outlets and fun activities in Rehobeth. This is a great place to visit any time of year. If you are lucky enough to rent this home, please take care of "our" place as we hope to come back to it often!

Owner's Response: Elaine - we hope you'll be back and will be sure to take care of the place for you! And thank you for taking care of our brand new sofas! You were the first guests to use them, and hope you loved the plentiful comfortable seating as much as we do! I need to update our pictures to show others. It's so great when guests get to experience the area in the off season - even winter. It's so peaceful but there is still so much to do, especially if you need to keep the kiddos entertained. You're welcome back any time!

Nice decor!

  • 5 of 5

Great beach townhouse!

The only thing I would do different,is put a better king mattress in! (My back is killing me)!!!!!

Owner's Response: Mark, thanks for taking the time to give a review. We're so glad you enjoyed the house, location and decor. It was great to hear that you'd like to come back next year. I'm sorry that the king bed wasn't to your liking. We have some guests who say it's incredibly comfortable and have had one (now two with you) who don't like it. Mattresses are so tricky as everyone's preference (and back) is different. Obviously, if we have more folks complain, it will be replaced! Our guests' comfort is our top priority!

Wonderful home for a relaxing vacation in Dewey/Rehoboth

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly wonderful vacation in Dewey.

The townhouse is spacious and well equipped and quiet.

The master suite is private, spacious and bright.

The two other bedrooms and full bath comfortably accommodate other guest.

The kitchen has all the utensils you might need and the breakfast area is so pleasant in the morning and the dining area is spacious for larger sit down meals.

The grill, beach chairs, umbrellas and towels were greatly appreciated.

The binder of procedures and local amenities was very helpful.

The large crate for our dog was great as that was one less thing to pack.

The surrounding neighborhood is quiet and the residents are friendly.

The walk to the beach is easy and after 5:30 everyone is there with their dogs and children.

Anne promptly answered all questions; there were no problems with the house

We highly recommend this rental for a relaxing family vacation.

We will be returning next summer!

Thank you for writing such a thoughtful review - it's so helpful to other guests and so appreciated by me!
