Loved the house and amenities. Everything we needed was available. House sparkles and has lovely decor. Steps to the beach, restaurants, and shopping. We are Dewey Beach lovers and have been many many times; this was our best experience! Owners are so responsive and friendly. Rob stopped by to check to see if we had everything we needed. Rent with confidence that you will not be disappointed. Plenty of space and House is so much more than pics can portray. Thanks for a wonderful stay and great memories$

Better than the Photos, Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding place in the epicenter of Dewey Beach. The house has all sorts of Beach toys, balls, chairs, gadgets. If you're wondering whether or not to bring something, they'll probably have it!

The house is way more spacious than the photos give credit to. The living room can fit a good amount of bodies for social hours. Great backyard, kitchen and dining areas. The bedrooms were great and the bed I had was super comfortable (and I'm a poor sleeper).

Their rules are easy to follow and parking is as is described. 3 spaces. If you have more than 3 cars, I would advise downloading the Park Mobile Ap to avoid any tickets from the Town of Dewey Beach.

As far as food, drink, beach or bayside activities...the house is in the midst of everything and is convenient to all. Park your car when you get there, and forget about it until you sadly have to leave.

I would book this place every year if it were available.

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

This beach cottage served our needs well during our trip to Dewey/Rehoboth for a wedding weekend. The kitchen, baths, and linens were all very clean upon arrival. There is plenty of space with two bedrooms downstairs and three upstairs. The rooms are small, as would. be expected for a beach cottage, but appointed well and clean. The location is very convenient if you want to be in the heart of rowdy Dewey Beach. Only a couple houses away from the beach and several restaurants and bakery on the same block. The owner stopped by upon arrival to make sure we had everything we needed. We would recommend.

The trip started with meeting one of the owners, Rob. He was very polite and very helpful. You cannot beat the location of this home. Its central to everything. Everything. The home itself was perfect. It was clean, comfortable, great outdoor space, steps to the beach. Thank you Rob and Kathy!! Will definitely return.

The house was so cute and nice. It was perfect for our stay. Everything was clean and many extra towels were available. The homeowner is extremely accommodating, as well as the rental company. It was in the perfect location, a few houses down from the beach and steps away from the bars and restaurants. I definitely recommend this house!!

Located on the Delaware Shore, the Dewey Beach Resort Area is known for great hotels, fun restaurants, specialty stores, amusements, beautiful homes, tax-free shopping and some of the finest beaches anywhere. Dewey Beach is a unique stretch of real estate, Dewey is only two blocks wide and surrounded by water. One block to the east of Route One is the wide sandy beach overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, while to the west lies the quiet shore of the Rehoboth Bay. Dewey Beach is a small town of less than 400 people, but it has become a popular tourist destination for anyone interested in water sports and beach vacations, and is the perfect spot for a relaxing family getaway. Dewey offers beach sports and activities as well as great restaurants, majestic sunsets, live music, dancing, and nightlife that is world famous for adults of all ages.

Young and old alike have come to make Dewey Beach “a way of life” during the summer months as visitors to the popular seaside resort return year after year. And more than ever, people are enjoying the peaceful months in the spring and fall. As the First State’s youngest town, Dewey Beach is continually growing, offering more and finer accommodations to those who vacation here. But while progress makes its mark, Dewey retains her charm with the older cottages and houses, giving the town a character all its own.

During the summer, Dewey hosts numerous family activities including weekly movies and bonfires on the beach, skim boarding camps and clinics, and yoga on the beach. All of the members of the family are taken care of in Dewey, where leashed dogs are permitted on the beach before 9 AM and after 5 PM.

The beaches are definitely Dewey's most precious resource, receiving consecutive 5 star ratings for water cleanliness from the Natural Resources Defense Council! The Dewey Beach Life guards are a welcomed, friendly presence daily during the summer months as they keep residents and visitors safe.

Visitors enjoy exploring 30 miles of unspoiled Delaware coastline and our many parks. Nature based activities include State Parks, kayaking, nature cruises, ferry rides, walking trails, surfing, skimboarding, paddleboarding, sailing or exploring the water’s edge.

Located just a couple miles from Dewey, take a short walk to Rehoboth beach or ride the Jolley Trolley to explore Rehoboth's main street and boardwalk area! Rehoboth has a quaint small town feel – a real walking downtown and all the fun, relaxation or excitement you could ask for. Rehoboth is known for awesome hotels, specialty stores, amusements, beautiful homes, tax-free shopping and some of the finest restaurants anywhere.

The Resort’s Gateway (Coastal Highway), offers the famous Tanger Outlet Center and more great restaurants, bars, shops, rides, and attractions.

You will want to stay and return often to enjoy our beaches, boardwalk, natural beauty and hospitality. Bring your sandals and flip flops!
