About Preston Thomas

Hi, we are the owners at Dover Road, Lisa and Preston, and we thank you for considering our vacation rental. Preston grew up in Hockessin, Delaware and enjoyed coming to Dewey Beach with his family and then on his own through college. We moved back to the Philadelphia area 5 years ago and have been visiting Dewey every summer. The kids love funland and rolling around in the sand. And love spending time at Dover Road where we can walk to the beach, the playground and their favorite, taco Tuesday at Que Pasa.

Preston Thomas purchased this house in 2015

Why Preston Thomas chose Dewey Beach

We purchased this property after much searching in Rehoboth, Dewey, and Bethany area and decided on Dover Road because it was a stand alone house (vs a townhouse) and it's location is killer. We are in a residential area yet we can walk to everything including the beach, bay, and restaurants. Everything is within a 5 minute walk.

Dewey Beach

There is plenty to enjoy in Dewey from relaxing on less crowded Dewey beach, to great restaurants, to live music, to nightlife to tons of family activities during the sumer.

Dewey Beach has been recognized for the cleanest water quality in the nation, with Dewey recognized one of the country's 13 "Superstar Beaches" for their perfect swimming water quality for the past four years, according to the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). AND it's only a 5 minute walk from our house.

Personally we enjoy going out to eat at IVY, Woody's, Nalu Hawaiian Grille, Port, Dewey Beer Company. Jimmy's is good for listening to music over a bucket of killer fried chicken. Sitting at the bay beach for taco tuesday at Que Pasa. Seeing music in the sand at North Beach.

The kids love walking across the street to the playground. They feel so independent even through we can see them from the yard. The bay offers some great opportunities to explore sea live near the beach. Or go crabbing off one of the piers.

Unbelievable

  • 1 of 5

My family met here in Sept for a 3 day weekend. We were supposed to get code night before to get in. On the way there we received the code and message that the front steps were being replaced and would not be done - we could use back door only. Not happy with only one means of egress with small children. The house had a terrible mildew smell, the master bath shower curtain had mold growing up it, the upstair bedroom door curtain was dirty, the windows in house were filthly and the coffee pot was totally unusable (mold) - we got box of coffee everyday from starbucks. I don't know how often owners are there but they need to pay more attention to how house is being cleaned. We have traveled often, this is my only bad revue!

Awesome location many amenities exceptional communication with owner

  • 4 of 5

Our visit to Dewey beach was great. The house has a premier location close to town and to the beach just a short walk. Preston 's Communication was superb . There is not a lot of outdoor space but the house was clean and well managed. In the welcome book it was a nice touch to see favorite restaurants and things to do that the owners do with their family. Thank you for a great stay !!!
